Arsenal Fan TV’s Robbie Lyle will kick off the new Premier League season in style by walking to the Gunners first home match for Prostate Cancer UK via every top-flight London club.

Inspired by the Stronger Knowing More charity campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the increased risk of prostate cancer in black men, Robbie will complete his 38-mile mission across three days.

His March for Men will start off at West Ham United’s London Stadium on Wednesday and Lyles opening day 12 mile jaunt will see him stroll to Selhurst Park, home of Crystal Palace.

On the second day he’ll walk 16 miles, leaving south London and heading to the home of Premier League champions, Chelsea.

From Stamford Bridge he’ll then head to Wembley, temporary home of Tottenham Hotspur, where the day concludes.

His finale, ahead of the top-flight curtain-raiser against Leicester City, sees him make the nine-mile trek from Wembley to the Emirates Stadium, home of his beloved Gunners, and he aims to be at the game two hours before kick-off.

Experts are unsure why black men face a higher than average risk of prostate cancer but it is widely believed genetics could be an underlying factor.

The PSA blood test is the first step towards diagnosis and black men are encouraged to start speaking to their GP about the test from the age of 45 – five years earlier than other men.

Robbie said: “It’s fitting it’s called Stronger Knowing More.

“I know people that have been affected by cancer but was stunned about the statistics of prostate cancer.

“One in four black men will be affected by this disease – that’s not good enough and its why I pledged to take action and help spread the word.

“They say the football season is a marathon not a sprint – but I’ve been training hard and I’m hoping to raise as much as I can to help stop prostate cancer being killer and walk alongside some amazing people along the way.”
