Matthew Jones: My challenges in memory of Gary Speed

Former Wales international footballer Matthew Jones is undertaking a 24 hour static cycling ride in his home town of Llanelli to pay tribute to his former team mate and former Welsh manager Gary Speed.

Jones is raising money for Speed's favorite charities - the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and the John Hartson Foundation.

"His memory will never die" he told ITV Wales.

"Gary will always be there in my mind and during this challenge that I've set myself".

"I know it's going to be very very difficult, but I'm sure that Gary's memory, and some of the motivational things he said to me over the years, will really push me on the end of this"
