ABOUT THIS EPISODE

On this week's Sportshour we hear from WWE Chief Brand officer, Stephanie McMahon on her quest to change the media coverage of women's sport. She tells us that women need to be 'persistent' and 'brave' when it comes to fighting for their rights to watch and be involved in sport. Stephanie also reveals the advice she is giving her three daughters.
We go live to Headingley for day three of the Ashes Test with England needing a win to keep their hopes of winning the series alive.
We travel to Capetown where so many townships are plagued by crime because they have a lack of recreational opportunities. But, we hear how things are changing thanks to the efforts of football and a local policeman.
Back in October 2018, WWE Superstar Roman Reigns gave up his Universal Championship title because he had leukaemia. He is a huge figure in Wrestling and Sportshour’s Chris Latchem; who has a very personal interest in this story, has been speaking to Roman while he visited Manchester.
