Wembley stadium knows a thing or two about hosting big events, but this weekend presented a new challenge for them.

Friday night saw England take on and beat Peru in the last World Cup warm-up game on home soil, seen by a crowd of 83,000, and the following evening saw another sell out for the Carl Froch v George Groves fight - which ended with a sensational Froch punch seeing off Groves.

This brilliant timelapse video shows the transformation of the stadium over the course of 24 hours: watch below as the army of workers get everything ready for fight night.
