Paralympic star on beating cancer

Paralympic silver medallist Will Bayley had a difficult childhood. He needed 12 operations to cure a problem with his feet, before being diagnosed with cancer at the age of seven.

Bayley, 25, who has arthrogryposis which inhibits the movement of all four limbs, was given a table tennis set by his grandmother to help his recovery after chemotherapy and 15 years on he claimed two medals at the London 2012 Paralympics.

He tells BBC Sport's Nick Hope that he is now targeting further success at the European Championships in Italy, 28 September - 4 October.
