Today's guest is one of Britain's Paralympic stars - Richard Whitehead. His gold medal moment at London 2012 was one of the highlights of the Games. He repeated this at Rio in 2016 but at 44 he will need to be at his very best to make it a hat-trick.

Richard's currently in South Africa and talks about why athletes are going overseas - despite the pandemic and the steps he's taking to be secure.

We'll hear about his gruelling training plan and what it's going to achieve. And why he's gone into podcast hosting.
