Sports Minister Tracey Crouch wants a new generation of female participation in sport to be inspired by Women's Sport Week.

After the success of last October's initiative, #WSW2017 is back this week, with the theme running through to June 25 of More Women, More Active.

In the region of 11 million women across the United Kingdom are said to "need a nudge" to take part in sport and this year's message is for those nudges to make a difference in getting active or even just getting out to watch a match that could end up as inspirational.

Diddy does his best to keep his children's spirits 'stay intact'

  Diddy does his best to keep his children's spirits 'stay intact' Diddy's difficulties in life have inspired him to try his utmost to keep his children's "spirits intact". While the rapper is now one of the most successful musicians in the world, and was recently named Forbes magazine's highest-paid entertainer of 2017, things haven't always been so easy. One of his toughest times was the murder of his friend Biggie Smalls in 1997, and tragedies like that have made Diddy, real name Sean Combs, even more protective of his six offspring. “I think it makes me very protective of them. It makes me protective of where their spirit's at, most importantly, 'cause when I was going through a lot of that stuff, I lost a lot of my spirit," Diddy, who is father to six children with three different women, told U.S. TV show Extra in a recent interview. "So when they’re going through things, I try to make sure their spirit stays intact.” Diddy's life story is explored in new movie Can't Stop, Won't Stop. And the project doesn't shy away from exploring the more challenging parts of the rapper's life. "It’s something that started out as, like, a regular music documentary, but it became something much bigger. It became a feature film. It’s something out there to inspire people, not just tell our history, but to inspire people," he explained.

There will also be special content across the Sky Sports portfolio, and in one of those pieces, Crouch told Sky Sports News HQ: "Women's Sport Week is all about encouraging people to go out there and try a new sport.

"We know there is a bit of a stubborn gap in participation between the number of men that participate in sport and the number of women.

"What we are trying to do with Women's Sport Week is to showcase and highlight all the activities that are out there for women to go and get involved and participate in.

"We've got a fantastic summer of sport ahead of us and I think people are genuinely excited about that, so hopefully the summer ahead will go on and inspire the next generation to get involved."

That fantastic summer of sport includes the Women's Cricket World Cup, which takes place in England from June 26 to July 23 and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Sky Sports will also show the Ricoh Women's British Open with all four days live from Scotland's magnificent Kingsbarns course.
