Hosted by TV and radio sports presenter William Lehong, Inside Sport is a different, fun and alternative view to sport in South Africa.
Ever wondered what sports stars do away from the training ground? Fed up with the same type of interviews that reveal so little of our athletes personalities? These are some of the questions Inside Sport answers.
The show also features various original inserts including: a humorous 60-second quiz that tests the knowledge of sports stars such as Steven Pienaar, Bryan Habana and Bakkies Botha. What do these athletes actually know about their own careers?
The series will also highlight some of our lesser known sports stars. Amongst these stories, Lucas Sithole, a courageous individual who at 10, lost both his legs and his right arm in a train accident.
Since then Sithole has become South Africa’s top wheelchair tennis player and continues to give back to those less fortunate than himself..
