Former Manchester City and England defender Micah Richards will present a new Sky documentary on racism in football.
Titled Micah Richards: Tackling Racism, this one-hour special investigates the scale of the problem in Britain, and what can be done about it.
The 32-year-old, who retired from the sport last year, played 13 times for the Three Lions and won Premier League and FA Cup medals during his stint at City.
In Tackling Racism, Micah speaks to anti-racism organisation Kick It Out, various Premier League stars and supporters, and some of the tech companies who fans use to communicate online.
It's one of a number of new documentaries announced to be coming to Sky, alongside John Lennon – Let Me Take You Down, The Wimbledon Kidnapping, The Law Man and Sir Stirling Moss, The Uncrowned King of F1,
Sky's director of factual Poppy Dixon said: "Since joining Sky a matter of months ago, I've been thrilled by the breadth of ambition for our brand-new factual channels.
"These five films join an already incredible slate of content which I look forward to building on in the coming weeks and months.
"The range of subjects and tones featured in these announcements are just a taste of what I hope to explore on Sky Documentaries in the future."
Micah Richards: Tackling Racism is yet to receive an airdate.
