Sky Sports' My Icon campaign coincides with Black History Month, bringing you exclusive interviews and features with top sports personalities every day in October.
We have produced a series of special programmes, which will be aired every day in October on Sky Sports Mix, featuring intimate one-on-one interviews with trailblazing sportsmen and women from the BAME community.
You will hear from some of the biggest and most successful names in sport, and some of those whose stories are a little bit more under the radar, as they lift the lid on their individual journeys.
They talk frankly about the highs and lows in their careers, the barriers they have overcome, who inspired them to become the very best they could be, and much more.
It's all about celebrating the achievements and contribution that sportsmen and women from the BAME community have made to their respective sports, and we hope you are as inspired watching it as we were making it.
Our opening show really packs a punch as we sit down with world heavyweight champion and London 2012 Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua, in the first of our 31-part series in October.
The My Icon series runs every day throughout the month of October, kicking off with Anthony Joshua on Sunday on Sky Sports Mix at 7am and repeated at 10.30am, 1pm, 3.30pm and 5.45pm
