Matthew Chilvers, an autistic tennis coach, who won the 2018 BBC East Midlands Get Inspired Sports Unsung Hero, wants to encourage people with disabilities to get involved in sport.

Matthew Chilvers teaches here at Desford Tennis Club and special schools in Leicestershire.

Head coach at Desford, Alec Matty, who nominated the 22-year-old, said: “He’s a proper unsung hero because he’s had to overcome a lot of things to get him in this position.”
