When the former St Helens Rugby League player Steve Prescott was diagnosed with stomach cancer, he was given just six months to live. Six years on he's still going strong and is about to set off on the latest of his charity endurance challenges.

He's aiming to swim, cycle, run and canoe from Hull to Manchester. He'll finish by delivering the match ball for the Super League Grand Final.
