Jackson inspired beast pose - Blake

In an interview with BBC North West Tonight, Jamaican sprinter Yohan Blake reveals singer Michael Jackson was the inspiration behind his famous "beast" celebration and explains why competing in Manchester is important to him.

The 24-year-old won Olympic 4x100m relay gold at London 2012 and two silver medals behind compatriot Usain Bolt in the 100m and 200m.

Blake is one of the star attractions at the Great CityGames in Manchester on Saturday.
