Sir Steve Redgrave: 'I'd love' to light Olympic flame

Help

Sir Steve Redgrave is one of only four Olympians to win gold medals across five successive Olympic Games.

His golden run started at Los Angeles in 1984 and ended at the Sydney Games in 2000.

He is regarded as one of Britain's greatest Olympians so does that make him the favourite to light the Olympic flame on Friday?

Sir Steve Redgrave talks to Rob Bonnet.
