The BBC said that “due to inflation and funding challenges, difficult decisions have to be made, therefore Question of Sport is currently not in production at the moment”.

The longest-serving team captain was England rugby international Matt Dawson who appeared in the show for 17 years from 2004 to 2021.

An end of era.
