John Motson Will Deliver His Last Ever Live Commentary This Weekend

For many the voice of commentary legend John Motson has graced our ears for years, but all good things must come to an end.

It has been confirmed that 'Motty' will deliver his final live BBC commentary this weekend, 48 years after after his first live radio broadcast.

The 72-year-old has delivered commentary on 10 World Cup's down the years, 10 European Championships, 29 FA Cup finals and over 200 England games - not to mention the countless Match Of The Day segments we all know and love.

Perhaps his most famous moment in recent times happened shortly after Sunderland's Premier League relegation was confirmed.

Motson said: "A club badly managed from above for at least four years, three managers have got them out of it at the end of the season including Sam Allardyce a year ago, the rot set in at Sunderland a long time ago, and it came right from the top.

"I have no sympathy with them, they deserved to go down."

Plenty took to social media to describe their favourite John Motson memory.
