Olympic gold medallist and veteran sprinter Marlon Devonish has said that the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham will be a massive boost for the city.

The former world indoor champion from Coventry was in the city to kick off the official countdown to the event, which takes place in exactly 12 months.

It's 14 years since Devonish was crowned World Indoor Champion in the 200m in front of a home crowd in Birmingham. It's a time that the star remembers fondly.
