James Taylor: My heart rate was '265 bpm'

Former England cricketer James Taylor has opened up about the heart condition that forced him into early retirement.

James told the Today programme that during a warm up his heart started beating so fast you could see his "shirt moving". When he arrived at hospital doctors told him his heart rate was 265 beats per minute - the equivalent of running five or six marathons.
