The ParalympicsGB team has the Ministry of Defence's Battle Back programme to thank for the presence of discus thrower Derek Derenalagi in the squad.

Derenalagi, originally from Fiji, lost his legs while serving in Afghanistan but is now in with a chance of a medal in the F57 competition in London.

The 34-year-old, who featured on the front page of The Sun on the first day of the Paralympics, was interviewed by Olli who's a pupil at Skinners' School in Kent.
