  • Nicole Kozlova: On Fifa World Cup and OneLove armband
    Nicole Kozlova plays for the Ukrainian Women's national team - earlier this year, whilst the team were still celebrating winning the Turkish Cup, back in her native country, everything had changed and the world had been turned upside down. Suddenly, there was war in Ukraine. Kozlova plays her domestic football in Denmark, whose men's national team have spoken out about some of the issues around the World Cup being hosted in Qatar. Nicole tells whether there is an appetite in Denmark for the World Cup and her hopes for the future. Ever since Leeds Rhino's Rugby League player Rob Burrow was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019, former England and Leeds captain Kevin Sinfield has dedicated his time and energy in raising money for MND charities. He’s just completed his toughest challenge yet... seven ultra marathons in just seven days. That's 482km from Edinburgh to Manchester, via, Newcastle, York, Leeds and Bradford. Kevin was also running for former Scotland rugby player Doddie Weir and former Bradford City captain Stephen Darby, who also live with the disease, which affects the brain and nerves. Kevin reflects on what was a physically and mentally exhausting week. Sporting Witness goes back to the 1982 World Cup for Kuwait's one and only World Cup appearance but it was their camel mascot that became their star player. We are live in Sydney for the Women’s Big Bash final between Sydney Sixers v Adelaide Strikers, we are in Qatar to reflect on an eventful opening week of the World Cup plus we head to a fans park in Tunis as Tunisia face Australia at the World Cup in Qatar.

  • Sportshour at the Fifa World Cup in Qatar
    On this week’s Sportshour with Katie Smith, we take you live to downtown Doha as we get the latest on the ground ahead of the start of the Fifa World Cup in Qatar from Sportsworld’s Delyth Lloyd. Fans have travelled from all around the world for the marquee event of the football calendar and we speak to a couple of Welsh fans who have taken a very unusual route. Former Cardiff City footballer Scott Young and Nick Smith attempted to travel the 5,000 mile distance to the tournament solely by electric car, which they named Morris, in time for Wales’ first match against the USA. After covering 18 countries, they fell at the final hurdle of Saudi Arabia, who refused to let them through in a right-hand drive car, forcing them to fly the final leg from Jordan to Qatar. Former Australia captain turned broadcaster and human rights advocate Craig Foster stops by to tell us why he’s decided to donate all of his broadcast fees for the World Cup to the families of deceased migrant workers in Qatar, as well as LGBT & women’s rights charities. He says every footballer involved in the World Cup should make a stand of some sort and insists that sport is capable of impacting change, some of which we have already seen. We preview both the women’s and men’s Rugby League World Cup finals with Australian commentator Andrew Voss, who has been enjoying a culinary tour of the United Kingdom in between matches. Next up is a chat about the finals over a BBC canteen breakfast. When Switzerland’s Jan Scherrer won a bronze medal in snowboarding at the Beijing Winter Olympics, his jubilation quickly included a realisation that he would have to honour a deal with his wife, Sasha. They agreed that if he were to medal, he would have to get a tattoo of Sasha’s choosing. You won’t believe what she came up with…. Sporting Witness takes you back to 1994, when Motown legend Diana Ross missed a penalty in front of 67,000 fans at the USA World Cup opening ceremony. Alan Rothenberg, the man in charge of organising the tournament, speaks to Matt Pintus. Plus we head to the York Barbican ahead of the semi-finals of snooker's UK Championship.

  • How a fake Mr Bean caused a cricketing rivalry
    Six years after a performance at an agricultural show in Zimbabwe in 2016, a Pakistani comedian’s impersonation of the fictional character Mr Bean hit the headlines. Just as Zimbabwe were about to take on Pakistan in the T20 World Cup, one Zimbabwean Twitter user predicted revenge for his country over Pakistan for sending a fake Mr Bean. He was correct. Zimbabwe won a thrilling match by one run, prompting tweets from the President of Zimbabwe and Prime Minister of Pakistan, both referencing the impersonator. We tracked down the man at the heart of it, comedian Asif Muhammad. The only problem? As Caroline Barker attempted to find out the full story, he stayed in full character as Mr Bean. We also speak to an Afghan refugee basketballer who has just been given resettlement in the United States of America after nine months of living in Eastern Europe. The woman, who wished to be known as 'Maryam' in order to protect her identity, along with 18 other female refugees will begin their new lives in America next month. Their acceptance into the country comes over a year on from the devastation of being turned away from Canada, after they chose to flee Taliban rule. Elsewhere, ahead of his attempted defence of snooker's second biggest tournament, the UK Championship, we hear from Chinese star Zhao Xintong. One of his favourite hobbies is karaoke, so we managed to get him to belt out a tune for us. Plus, we get immediate reaction from the final of the women's Rugby World Cup in Auckland, we stop by the world's first vegan rugby club, plus we cross live to the Etihad Stadium ahead of Manchester City against Brentford in the English Premier League.

  • Dan Mancina: Skateboarding while blind
    At the age of 13, just as his love for skateboarding was flourishing, Dan Mancina was diagnosed with a condition that would eventually leave him blind. Over twenty years later, he supports his family by skateboarding as a full-time job, with the long-term goal of getting it into the Paralympics. He joins Sportshour’s Caroline Barker to tell her about the highs and lows of the last decade. Having never climbed a mountain in her life, Nadhira Alharthy was suddenly inspired to ascend Mount Everest. She succeeded and became the first woman from Oman to complete the feat. Nadhira shares her experience and talks about her role in changing attitudes towards women doing endurance sports in Oman. We’re also joined by Manchester City and Australia forward Mary Fowler, who at the age of 19 is preparing for her first World Cup next year. She says she’s settled in well to Manchester despite the notoriously poor weather and is attempting clay sculpture in her free time. Sporting Witness takes a trip to meet Championship Manager cult hero Tonton Zola Moukoko. The Swedish-Congolese footballer found fame as one of the best players ever in the computer game series, but he failed to make a mark in English football and in his personal life there were moments of immense tragedy. Plus, we check in at the women’s Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, the men’s T20 World Cup in Australia, and the wheelchair Rugby League World Cup in England. Image: The Familie / Dan Mancina
