So here's double world Champion, Olympic medal winner and YouTube vlogger Tom Daley. And this is a fascinating listen.

Everything from knitting to fatherhood, building a coaching team to what it takes to be the best in the world.

There have been many ups and downs in life and his sporting career and Tom freely talks about them all.

Tom was just 14 when he took part in his first Olympic Games. But his build-up to the London Games were highly pressurised and emotionally difficult, after his father died, aged just 40, in 2011.

There's plenty to learn from his approach to elite sport and what's needed to become a champion.

Track and Ball is presented by Paralympic Gold medal winner Richard Whitehead and England World Cup footballer Ellen White.

We've episodes out once a week, including a monthly live edition. You'll also find us on YouTube
