Official spin: “A razor-sharp breakdown of all that’s happening in the volatile world of sport. Colin Murray acts as ringmaster – or referee – over a panel of experts from around the world trying to stick their oar in and put their spin on events. Colin gives points for informed comments but penalises any witless outbursts.”
