The County Cricket Ground is normally the home to Sussex Sharks, but there won't be a cricketer in sight this Saturday and Sunday as the Brighton Yoga Festival takes place.

It is the fourth anniversary of what has become the UK's largest free entry yoga festival. The event will feature more than 100 yoga classes, meditation and talks about wellbeing.

This year it has been stretched over two days for the first time, after 3,000 people attended last year.

AFC Bournemouth chairman, Jeff Mostyn, says he is looking forward to returning to the Vitality Stadium for the 2017/18 season.

The 71-year-old has undergone a minor heart procedure and is recovering at home.

He'd been admitted to hospital earlier this month after falling ill while at a Premier League meeting in Harrogate.

A statement from the Club said: "Jeff would like to thank the Premier League and everyone at AFC Bournemouth for their support, assistance and best wishes over the last couple of weeks" and also extended Mostyn's thanks to the medical teams involved in his care.
