As well as his principal role as BBC’s face of rugby, John has covered almost all the major sporting events for television and radio. After fronting rugby and football World Cups, as well as Wimbledon tennis, and Olympic rowing and athletic.

John has anchored the Grandstand and Rugby Special television programmes and hosted John Inverdale’s Football Night and the sports chat show On Side. He has also presented the popular drivetime show on Radio 5 Live and several series of the World’s Strongest Man.

A wonderfully relaxed and dry-humoured presenter, John has been named Sony Broadcaster and Radio Personality of the Year.
