    They all used to do it in the buff as well didn't they?

    I'd be all for that. I've got all the sports channels.

    A while ago, maybe he was a worthy candidate. Not now.

    For a start, he doesn't like the game. He only does it to earn money. That's not the sort of attitude we should be rewarding to inspire our kids.

    Adam Peaty or Harry Kane for me. Probably Peaty.

    It's hard to be rational about it.

    Jimmy gets to 500 wickets and will be the leading seam bowling Test wicket taker this year at 35.

    And Anya Shrubsole is the cricket rep. 4 wickets in 7 games in Australia.

    A joke.

    Scrap it.

    He's a real talent. Some of his talents were demonstrated in his series on Sky playing pool in America.

    For me, even the LOW hurdles would be a problem. Not one to boast, like.
