Olympic athlete Perri Shakes-Drayton is hoping to inspire the next generation when she visits pupils in her home borough of Hackney.

Perri will speak to and train with young hopefuls from Stoke Newington and Cardinal Pole schools, leading a training session in preparation for the London Youth Games.

More than 20,000 young people across London will compete, with the best going on to take part at a national level in the School Games.
