UK Prime Minister David Cameron marked two years until the start of Rugby World Cup 2015 by meeting his New Zealand counterpart John Key who played host to the last tournament in 2011.
The duo exchanged rugby balls during a bilateral meeting between the two leaders at 10 Downing Street. Key presented Cameron with a ball signed by the New Zealand team that won Rugby World Cup 2011. Cameron returned the gesture with a specially designed ball from official manufacturers Gilbert.
The formal Webb Ellis Cup handover will take place later this year.
