Sir Steve Redgrave will visit a school in Greater Manchester to encourage pupils to stick at their chosen sports after leaving education.

The five-time Olympic gold medal winner will be at Ashton-on-Mersey school in Sale.

He will be launching the Matalan Sporting Communities (MSC) project, which is backed by lottery funding.

It's aim is to encourage young people aged 14-19 to continue playing sports after leaving school.
