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.

Logan went on to joke about the moment Paula Radcliffe urinated in the street during the London marathon in 2005, The Sun reports.

“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.
