Victoria Pendleton: 'Sport is tough for women'

Olympic gold medalist Victoria Pendelton says the world of sport is a "male dominated arena" that is "tough" for women.

The cyclist said felt she was not as "well catered for" as men and "had to act more like a man" in order to get further in her career.

She added that if change was to happen, other women needed to "passionately" support female athletes.
