Arsenal legend Thierry Henry will be an assistant to new Belgium coach Roberto Martinez as they start their bid to qualify for the next World Cup finals in Russia.

The former French international will be part of the backroom staff alongside Graeme Jones and fitness coach Richard Evans, who worked with Martinez at Swansea, Everton and Wigan.

The announcement was made as Martinez named his first senior squad since taking the Belgium job, replacing Marc Wilmots who failed to impress at Euro 2016 as his men were beaten 3-1 by Wales in the quarter-finals.

OFFICIAL: Belgium confirm the appointment of Thierry Henry as an assistant manager alongside Roberto Martinez.
