It says only one in 20 adults meets the recommended level of 2.5 hours of moderate exercise a week
Boris Johnson and Mo Farah will visit young basketball players at the Lilian Baylis sports centre in south London. The centre has been part funded by that Mayor's £40 million Sports Legacy Programme, created to ensure a lasting sporting legacy from London 2012.
