PREVIEW: The Last Leg Of Tokyo 2020, Channel 4

The Last Leg returns to its roots, taking pride of place at the heart of Channel 4's prime-time schedule throughout the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, to bring together top-level sporting action and award-winning entertainment.

Adam Hills, Alex Brooker and Josh Widdicombe present The Last Leg of Tokyo 2020 live daily from the BT Studios in the heart of London's Olympic Park in Stratford, rounding up and reflecting on the biggest sporting stories of the day.

Comedian Rosie Jones - who started her TV career as a researcher on The Last Leg for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games - is the show's roving reporter, bringing all the latest news from on the ground in Tokyo.

In each episode, the boys are joined in the studio by special guests, including friends and family of the Paralympians. They'll also connect with Japan, with live links and interviews with the competitors and medal winners.

And, not ones to miss out on the action, Adam, Alex and Josh also have a shot themselves and compete in 12 Paralympic sports filmed at the London Olympic Stadium across three days, including wheelchair tennis, blind running, archery, wheelchair volleyball, kayaking, swimming, blind cycling and more.

Representing GB are Josh and Alex, while Adam represents Australia, with some special guest comedians as his honorary teammates. The award-winning The Last Leg began as part of Channel 4's London 2012 Paralympic programming, to highlight the Games and tackle the tricky questions that viewers wanted to ask using the hashtag #isitok.

The Last Leg Of Tokyo2020 begins Tuesday 24th August at 10pm on Channel 4.
