England and Italy's World Cup hotels have out-of-date food confiscated by health officials in Brazil.

England's World Cup hotel has been ordered by Brazilian health and safety officials to remove out-of-date food following a raid on the venue.

Visits to the Three Lions' Royal Tulip base and Italy's Portobello Hotel found that more than 50 kilograms of food past its sell by date was being stored just a matter of weeks before the tournament gets underway in Brazil.

The health officials removed 2.6kg of butter, parma ham and salmon from the hotel, which will be the home for Roy Hodgson's men during the tournament, while 25kg of margarine and seafood was out of date and a further 24kg of meat, cheese, sauces and sugar had no visible sell-by date in Italy's hotel.

Reports have claimed that both establishments were also warned for not abiding by the law of providing guests with condoms.
