In the latest episode of Sporting Chapters, we meet a man who has produced some of the most iconic sports images of recent years.

Tom Jenkins has been photographing international sport for the last two decades for both The Guardian and The Observer and has captured memorable moments from the Olympic Games, the World Cup and the Ashes, among many others.

He has chronicled many of those moments in his new book 'In The Moment' which acts as both a collection of sports photography and a catalogue of sports history.

Hit the video at the top of the page to see Jenkins talking to Kait Borsay about some of his most famous pictures, including...

MANCHESTER DERBY He explains the significance behind his famous photo of supporters from both sides of the divide.

WIMBLEDON He talks us through an incredible image he took of Spanish star Rafael Nadal.

THE ASHES He tells us about his famous shot of Andrew Flintoff comforting Brett Lee after the famous Edgbaston Test of 2005.
