'I am a robot footballer': RoboWorld Cup kicks off in the UK


The world's most agile robots and their creators have travelled to the AtBristol science centre to battle it out in the annual FIRA RoboWorld Cup.

It's the first time the event - which features football, basketball and weightlifting competitions between robots - has taken place in the UK.

BBC News went to meet some of the robot competitors to find out, with a little help from their programmers, if they were feeling match fit.
