The ITTF Team World Cup 2018 is now less than 24 hours away!

The Copper Box Arena on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London has been transformed into a top-class field of play, and the first players have been practising on the four show courts this morning.

The practice hall was available from yesterday and China and Japan were among the first nations to get on the tables, with world and Olympic champions Ma Long and Ding Ning among them.

The draw for the group stage takes place at 3pm today and play gets under way at 10am tomorrow with the first women’s group matches.

Don’t forget, you can follow all the action live via the BBC Sport website.
