London's City Hall was transformed into a giant rugby ball to mark the 500-day countdown to next year's Rugby World Cup.
The 45-metre high building, designed by world-famous architect Norman Foster, had the Rugby World Cup imagery projected onto it at the weekend and the resulting pictures were issued on Tuesday.
The Rugby World Cup starts on September 18, 2015 and the 500-day mark will be used to announce the sale of tickets for the tournament.
