Could these PE tests be used in schools?

The British Association of Sport and Exercise Medicine (BASEM) is calling for mandatory "physical literacy" tests in schools, alongside reading and maths. They say this could help children with health problems and identify future sports stars.

BASEM is endorsing a series of five-minute fitness routines put together for schools by the international fitness coach Kelvin Giles.

Our health correspondent Adam Brimelow went to a gym to test them out for himself - together with William, a young volunteer.
