With the European Para Championships starting in Sheffield on Monday, we caught up with Will Bayley and his mixed doubles partner Bly Twomey.

Bayley is targeting a first European gold since 2011, to add to his impressive haul of international medals, which also includes world and Paralympic gold.

Thirteen-year-old Twomey is at the other end of her career and will be playing at a first major international event.
