A petition calling for jousting to be made an Olympic sport has been launched by English Heritage.
The charity's jousting expert Dominic Sewell told BBC's Radio 5 live that the medieval pursuit was a "worldwide phenomenon that should be recognised".
Only about 20 people in the UK joust competitively, but the charity said tournaments were held across the world.
