A group of students have set up an event to tackle racism and celebrate the achievements of Black people in the sports industry.
The 2023 Black in Sport Summit (BISS) is due to be held in March at the London Stadium, which hosted the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.
The event will involve a line-up of high-profile speakers and discussions on issues facing Black people in sport.
This year’s event is being sponsored by Sky.
The event will be hosted Sky Sports News presenter Mike Wedderburn and sports presenter Anita Abayomi.
BISS was set up by co-founders Ladi Ogunmekan, Samuel Ola and Emmanuel Shittu in 2022 to try to tackle discrimination and underrepresentation of Black people in sport.
