The Premier League is to bring legal action against 100 pubs it believes are showing matches illegally on foreign satellite channels.

The league has used a private investigation firm to visit almost 4000 pubs across England and Wales in the past four months.

Dan Johnson, from the Premier League, told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast that the practice was "out and out theft".

However pub owner Daniel, who admits to using the channels, told the programme he could not afford show the matches otherwise.
