Joe Lycett to take on David Beckham in Got Your Back special

Joe Lycett vs David Beckham: A Got Your Back Christmas Special will see the comedian ask one of football's global icons to stand up for what they believe in.

The announcement comes after Lycett's latest headline-making protest, in which he called on the former England footballer to renounce his role as an ambassador for the Qatar World Cup.

Sky launch virtual reality app

The first version of the app, available for anyone to download for free, showcases a range of 360 videos from Sky and their partners.

Some transport viewers inside popular films, such as Suicide Squad and The Martian, while others invite viewers behind the scenes of iconic sports events such as Formula One and the Tour De France. A Sky News documentary titled Calais: The Jungle, will take viewers to the centre of the refugee crisis.

Sky has also announced two new virtual reality experiences which will become available via the app in the future.
