John Inverdale
John has presented Radio Five Live's coverage of many major sporting events including Wimbledon, the Olympic Games, World Cups (both football and rugby), the Ryder Cup and Euro '96.

He previously anchored the network's drivetime show John Inverdale Nationwide for which he was named as Sony Broadcaster of the Year in 1997.

He is the regular presenter of Five Live's Wednesday night soccer coverage, and has also hosted the topical sports forum Any Sporting Questions from around the UK.

His television work has included presenting the investigative sports series On The Line and Rugby Special, both on BBC2, plus five series of BBC1's acclaimed sports chat show On Side.

He was part of the presenting team at the Sydney Olympics, while his other credits include Grandstand and Sunday Grandstand, and The World's Strongest Man for BBC1.

Married with two daughters, John's biggest sporting passion is rugby union, and he is closely involved with Esher RFC. He is also a self-confessed pop trivia bore!
