2017's team.

The Isle of Wight’s Island Games team says it is prepared for the tournament – despite concerns over Brexit.

Gibraltar will host the competition this year with more than 2,000 competitors expected to take part.

Organisers of the event have told the BBC the uncertainty surrounding the UK’s exit from the EU is giving them “anxiety”.

Speaking to the BBC, Linda Alvarez, chair of the Gibraltar 2019 organising committee, said:

“There are lots of concerns.”

But, the chair of the Isle of Wight’s team, Martin Goodall, says arrangements have been made to minimise impact:

“Whilst Brexit is a concern to the games this year, we made our travel arrangements to go directly into Gibraltar airport to hopefully minimise any impact this might have.

“We are prepared for the games and are looking forward to an amazing week of competition”.
