Tim Peake is set to give his first press conference following his return from space on 18 June. The ESA astronaut will be discussing the Principia mission and the experiments he conducted while on board the International Space Station, providing a "first-hand report" of his 186 days in space.

The conference will take place at the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany. You can watch the one-hour conference live online below.

Peake landed in Kazakhstan in the Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft with Nasa's Tim Kopra and Roscosmos' Yuri Malenchenko. Following his arrival, Peake described the journey as "incredible": "The best ride I've been on ever. Truly amazing. A life-changing experience. The smell on Earth is really strong. Looking forward to seeing the family. I'm going to miss the view, definitely. I'd like some cool rain right now. It's very hot in the suit. It's very hot in the capsule."

Since his arrival, Peake has been undergoing medical checks to see how his body responds to life back on Earth after six months in microgravity. Weightlessness has a big impact on astronaut's bodies – for example, they lose on average up to 1.5% of their bone mass for every month spent in space.

"You're excited to be back, but you can't fully enjoy the experience because, to be quite frank, you feel pretty terrible," he said. "It can only be described as something akin to the world's worst hangover in terms of everything that is going on in your head."
