    More than 5,000 children turned out on Sunday for a new Street Event organised by the City of Athens aiming to transform the city center into a sports field for youngsters.

    The children flocked to downtown Panepistimiou street where tennis, soccer, basketball and hockey fields were set up by the organisers.

    Athens Mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis, City of Athens Youth and Sport Organisation (ONA) chairman Vassilis Kikilias and a bevy of prominent soccer, basketball and tennis stars were also on hand throughout the day
