    Thanks for posting. One of the biggest difficulties with inserting shots of a sportsman over a different background is separating them from their background. This is achievable by one of two methods: Shooting them against a solid colour background and then making the solid colour transparent (known as chroma keying or green/blue screen) or rotoscoping - literally digitally cutting their image out which is laborious to say the least at 25 or 30 frames per second.
    But what you have here avoids that issue. The sports figures are just taken from sttills so you only need to cut them out first (this is best done in a photo editing program like Photoshop, Affinity Photo or Gimp)
    What you're left with is sticking lots of stuff together in a video. This process is not so much editing (how you stick one shot after another) but compositing (combining a number of elements within one "shot"). The granddaddy of them all is, I suppose, After Effects, but HitFilm Express (free) is more than capable of creating the footage you linked to.
    It's not difficult, but don't expect to become proficient overnight.
