That’s the 60th time in 85 Premier League first halves since promotion that Wolves have failed to score. #wwfc  0-0 #saintsfc 

If you know of any Covid deniers or people who say “it’s basically flu”, watch this BBC documentary about how the first lockdown came about and the impact of the virus on real people. Fascinating to hear from scientists who admit they get it wrong.

PGMOL clarification of #avfc  penalty claim is the VAR felt March got enough of the ball and the contact on Trezeguet wasn't sufficient for a penalty. The referee went over to the review area and backed up that theory. #bhafc 

About to do newspapers review on Broadcasting House on @BBCRadio4 …glorious to have all the Sunday papers to peruse!

Abandoning PE for more maths and English is not in children’s best interests. On the contrary. Worrying... @afPE_PE  @edwardtimpson

Cute little girl doing the @Cristiano  Ronaldo goal celebration in the crowd....

Full video of ’s long-awaited emergence from the tunnel - precisely 70 minutes after the final whistle. The fans had been chanting for him non-stop while he was inside conducting all his media duties. #mixedemotions  #Eng 

That winning moment - the bench celebrates.... #Eng  have done it. Wow. #WorldCup  @itvfootball 

Maradona not so cool now. Some South Korea fans just shouted “Diego” and he obliged with a smile, kiss and wave. Then pulled his eyes to the side in a clearly racist gesture. All of us who saw it are stunned.

Met this brilliant lookalike, one of the fans. Neil from Surrey and nelly_southgate on Instagram). #Eng 

I’m helping to launch a new campaign today to encourage other women to feel they belong in the football industry. #WomenInFootball  Thank you for sharing my story.

If I were @MarcusRashford ’s mum, I’d get a T-shirt printed screaming: “I’M MARCUS RASHFORD’S MUM” as I simply wouldn’t be able to contain my pride.

My 7-year-old daughter was looking forward to her football class this morning. When I picked her up she said the boys would only pass to each other, so the coach told the girls to go and play with hula-hoops instead. Ridiculous.

Frustrating that this “female commentator” debate is still such an issue, 11 years after my first MotD game and 8 years after I did 7 live World Cup commentaries on 5 Live. Voice/style preference is always subjective - to say it “shouldn’t be allowed” says more about the critic.
