British Olympic boxing champ Luke Campbell says he's "over the moon" about his hometown Hull being named UK City of Culture for 2017.

He told Newsround: "It's great for the city, there's a lot of good in the city and it's about time it starts to get recognised for that."

Luke won gold in the bantamweight category at London 2012, and came third in this year's Dancing on Ice.

"The number one thing about the city is the people in it - they all look out for each other and they all support each other and get behind each other. For me, it's the people that make the city."

The 26-year-old boxer turned professional in July this year. He added: "Hopefully one day I can bring a world title to Hull and put a massive show on."
