What if I told you you can make hundreds of thousands of pounds playing videogames? "Sure", you might scoff "and the moon's made of cheese and the streets are paved with gold, and Nick Grimshaw is a likeable presenter. What hokum!" No, but really, you can.

You might not have heard of electronic sports or "e-sports." Though they're big in South Korea, Sweden and the US, they have not really cropped up in the UK yet, with British people still preferring to play, I dunno, cricket. But they're on the rise. Kicking off in the mid-nineties with events like QuakeCon, competitive videogaming is now a professional sport, complete with global tournaments, regulatory bodies and corporate sponsorship.
