Britain's Queen Elizabeth visited a boxing gym at the Factory Youth Zone in Manchester where she got to witness a real-life sparring match between two youths.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth visited a boxing gym in Manchester last week.

The 87-year-old royal got an up-close-and-personal view of a sparring match between two young boxers while visiting the Factory Youth Zone in Harpurhey, near Manchester city centre.

The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, were given a tour of the facilities, where they not only met the budding boxers, but also saw youngsters with an enthusiasm for rock climbing and trampolining.

The royal couple were the toast of the town when the royal train arrived at Manchester Piccadilly station on Thursday morning.

Local travellers were shocked to see Queen Elizabeth ? clad in a light blue outfit ? arrive on the platform as they awaited their trains on the opposite side of the station.

Schoolchildren were on hand to greet the royals with bouquets of flowers for the monarch.
