The Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, Europe's premier middle-distance all-aged Flat race, will return to terrestrial television in October after Channel 4 Racing announced a deal had been struck.

The Longchamp showpiece had previously been televised by Channel 4 from 1986 to 1994 and in 2001 while it had been shown on the BBC until their decision to stop televising racing which meant last year's race was not available on mainstream TV.

Channel 4 did have the option of screening last year's race also but after investing heavily in British racing they have now decided to strike a deal with France Galop to show the race on October 6.

A message on Channel 4's twitter feed said: "The Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe returns to terrestrial television! Will be shown LIVE ON CHANNEL 4 on Sunday 6th October."
