Two of Great Britain’s most celebrated Olympians will be meeting fans in Leeds this week.

Rio silver medal-winning track cyclist Becky James will be joined by rowing legend Sir Steve Redgrave at the White Rose Centre this Friday.

The pair will be appearing at the Carphone Warehouse store to launch Samsung’s latest virtual reality technology from 12-2pm.

Customers can meet the Olympic heroes and experience what riding on an Olympic velodrome track or rowing in a 100-metre race is like using the simulators.

Anyone who takes part in the virtual reality games will be entered into a prize draw to win £150 of shopping vouchers.

Redgrave, the most successful male rower in Olympic history, won five consecutive golds at the Games from 1984 until 2000, the only man to ever achieve the feat in an endurance sport. James was the 2013 world sprint and keirin champion before winning two silver medals at the Rio Games this summer. Her partner is fellow Welsh athlete and international rugby player George North.
