“That’s a reason I got into journalism. If I’m not the athlete, why not be able to speak to the athletes.

“It was really when I was doing my undergraduate degree at Loughborough, I was doing more reading, more writing, doing more actual watching stuff.

“And to be honest with you and at that time when I finished, there weren’t that many courses around that I would go onto after.
