Wales second-row Alun Wyn Jones has officially been named tour captain for the British and Lions for their trip to South Africa this summer.
Jones is the most-capped Test player in the world and is set to go on his fourth Lions tour and his first as captain.
The 35-year-old has long been a favourite for the role and beats off competition from the likes of Stuart Hogg, Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje.
The squad itself is set to be named shortly. You can watch the announcement live here.
