 The new English Premier League season kicks off on Saturday and we’re joined by our Chief Football Correspondent, Stuart Weir, to  discuss the prospects of last year’s top teams including reigning champions Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool.  We also consider the challenges facing the three new teams – Bournemouth, Norwich and Watford – as they aim to avoid relegation after one season.  Wednesday 5th August marked one year out from the start of the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro so to celebrate that Planet Sport reporters Tom Ellis and Andy Bloss take us to one of Rio’s most iconic landmarks, the statue of Christ the Redeemer.
