BBC Sport - BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero 2017: Frank O'Sullivan wins West Midlands award

'He changed my life'

Frank O'Sullivan, who started Birmingham City Boxing Club in 1956 and has been coaching six days a week since, wins the BBC Get Inspired Unsung Hero award for the West Midlands.

He had his own dreams of being a boxer but a failed eye test stopped him turning professional.

Deciding to give back to the local community, he has spent - it is estimated - more than 76,000 hours coaching.
