Raheem Sterling: First day gallery

It was a whirlwind few hours for City's latest recruit Raheem Sterling, but - of course - we were there every step of the way.

What proved to be a long day began with the most important part of the process - the medical. Thankfully, it was a thumbs up at the end.

Next stop the small matter of signing a five-year contract with Txiki Begiristain...

Then a quick hello to England Manchester City Women's star Toni Duggan - all branded up by now!

Then it was time to meet local youngsters attending the City Football Schools...

'Say cheese!' Delighted little Blues meet Raheem who has quickly risen to hero status...

From one great No.7 to another - Club ambassador Mike Summerbee passed the baton to Raheem...

This is one shirt Raheem intends to keep as he familiarises himself with his new dressing room.

Welcome to Manchester! Raheem checks out the Etihad - with the obligatory shirt-to-camera pose...

Finally, a marathon autograph session with a legion of new admirers outside the stadium

And that was that! The City is yours, Raheem. Now, go and show everyone what you can do, kid!

Watch the full exclusive CityTV interview with Raheem on on later this morning.
