It is 10 years since London hosted the summer Olympic Games where Team GB won 29 gold medals.

That included a podium-topping performance from Royal Navy star Pete Reed – part of the men's coxless four who enjoyed success during the competition.

Reed, who had a glittering sporting career that saw him crowned a three-time Olympic champion, returned to his career in the Senior Service.

But his life changed forever in 2019, when he suffered a spinal stroke, leaving him paralysed from the chest down.

The inspirational and determined Pete Reed chats to Cath and Jules about his life and his hopes and aspirations for the future.
