England cricket captain Joe Root is going back to school today – to give pupils a sporting masterclass.

The 26-year-old Yorkshire batsman is returning to Dore Primary, near Sheffield, where he was once a pupil.

The school will hold an assembly looking at his time at the school and face questions from pupils before giving batting tips to some of those in year six.

The event is being held as part of National Cricket Week.
