BBC sports presenter Gabby Logan entertained students at Leeds Trinity University with her candid behind-the-cameras talk about some of the biggest personalities in sport.
Including one Mr Andy Murray, the dour Scottish tennis champion she described to her audience as “the moodiest most miserable b*****d” she’d ever met.
“I was a big fan,” Logan said.
“Then at the Olympics he had just won a silver with Laura Robson and he was the moodiest most miserable b****** I've ever met in my life because he only won a silver.
“If I wasn't on live telly I'd have gone 'cheer up'."
But the 26-year-old Wimbledon champion wasn’t the only athlete who came under fire.
“One guy tweeted and said my wife thinks Paula's dress is nicer than yours,” she told them. “So I showed Paula and she p***ed herself. Again.”
On the subject of Gary Lineker, she apparently said that most now see the former England striker as a “crisp salesman” rather than a footballer, before she added: “Sorry, they see him as a broadcaster”.
“These people are acquaintances of Gabby's who she has the utmost admiration for and the quotes clearly formed part of a humourous speech,” a spokesperson for Logan told the tabloid.
