Presenter trains for Sport Relief triathlon

BBC South East Today presenter Rob Smith is training for a triathlon challenge across Sussex and Kent.

He plans to start on Saturday 17 March with a sea-swim around Brighton Pier, then cycle from Brighton to Ramsgate - a distance of just over 100 miles - and finally run the last 10 miles round the Thanet Coastline to finish in Margate.

To get an idea of what he'll be taking on, Rob took to the water with Brighton Swimming Club for some tips and advice.
