I can see BBC Sport having to put out a statement (Backing?) regarding Sharon Davis, her views on trans athletes are becoming more and more controversial

Oh God, you're back.


Why would they - she's a freelancer who works for them for at most two weeks a year.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

Shouldn’t be controversial seem quite reasonable to me.

This tweet is the one that is causing controversy because it is less about sport and more in line with other tweets on similar issues which have got people in the media in trouble/sacked before.

Well I hadn’t seen that. I don’t understand what point she is trying to make there and how it even helps the discussion. What is the BBC’s statement after this Tweet? I can’t see anything.

Nick Mullins commentating on this match possibly his first BBC TV work since leaving just under a decade ago to commentate on the Rugby Premiership, though of course has been ITV's main commentator at the French Open for years.

Good to see him get a rare outing on Centre Court for BBC TV however I am afraid you are incorrect, Mullins continued to commentate at Wimbledon for BBC TV for the last 10 years mainly on the outside courts and it has been his only regular work for the BBC since he moved to ESPN/BT Sport although he did commentate on Judo for the Olympics and Commonwealth Games.
