Sports presenter Chris Hollins is to take up a new role on BBC Breakfast.


Chris will take over from Rob Bonnet presenting the sports news on the BBC ONE morning show.


Chris, whose father is John Hollins MBE, the former Chelsea, Arsenal, QPR and England footballer, will leave his current role as Sports Presenter on BBC News 24 to take up the role later this month.


The 34-year-old joined BBC Sport as a presenter in 1999.


He started his career at Sky Sports in 1994 followed by spells at Channel One, GMTV, Meridian and Channel 5.


He is a regular face on BBC News 24 and has covered a host of major events for the channel, including the 2002 World Cup.


During his six years at the BBC he has also presented and reported for Grandstand and Football Focus.


Chris takes over from Rob Bonnet who is leaving BBC Breakfast after ten years.


Rob joined the Breakfast team in 1995 after spending eight years as Sports Reporter and Correspondent for BBC News.


At the last count he had been to four World Cups, two Commonwealth Games, one Olympic Games and numerous other big sports events.


But Rob will still be seen on BBC screens - presenting Extra Time, the HARDtalk sports interview programme on BBC News 24 and BBC World, and presenting for the BBC ONE weekend bulletins and BBC World.
