Double Olympic champion Nicola Adams has had a storming year. And she will round it off in a new arena - becoming guest editor for the flagship Radio 4 Today programme.

Every year the news programme takes on guest editors over the festive season. Adams’s broadcast on December 29 will take a look at combat sports and women in boxing. Gordon Ramsay will speak about his love of martial arts while Ricky Hatton will talk frankly about depression. Today will also decamp to Hull for a live broadcast on December 31 as last-minute preparations count down to the opening event for City of Culture - a huge fireworks show and seven-day son et lumiere.

'A Womans Place' a new exhibition at Abbey House Museum, Leeds.
