BBC has revealed that its Sports website will relaunch next month, with the most popular sections such as the UK and overseas homepage and the football page to be updated first.

Other pages on the website will be updated over the coming months, with the new site to ‘build on the current market-leading service of latest sports news and live event coverage, scores, fixtures and results, reports, features, video and audio highlights, and expert analysis’ as well as developing the live-text commentaries.

The BBC began a refresh of its corporate websites in December.

Ben Gallop, head of BBC Sport Interactive, said on the BBC Sport website: "This is the right time to change our website as we enter a huge year for sport on the BBC, which reaches a crescendo with the London Olympics in the summer.

"We will continue to offer the same breadth of coverage, but with added features and a great new look.

"With easier navigation, high-quality journalism and fantastic live content, we're confident that the changes we've made will help audiences get even more from BBC Sport."
