I say no to sport gongs

Have your say

I’m not a sports fan but I have kept a eye on events in Rio, who would have thought sailing could be so riveting?

No me neither but now it’s on the news where are the next gongs going? Dame Jess, Sir Mo, I say no.

Yes it’s great what has been achieved but showering sports people with these rewards is not right at this time.

They deserve to be handed to people who are working on a cure for cancer or a breakthrough for fighting Alzheimer’s.
