Just like their human equivalents, having the right trainers is vital for a sports robot. London may be host to the Olympics and paralympics but Bristol is the place to be if you are a sporty robot. 26 teams from around the world are currently competing in the FIRA RoboWorld Cup. They are taking part in a range of games, including football, basketball and weightlifting. It is the first time that the event has been hosted in the UK and organisers say that they have had a record number of entries. The robots have also smashed a few world records along the way.
