It's called asking a leading question - she not only leads the athlete to the answer, she answers it as well.

She should go on a UK:A coaches course; they get you to ask "Open Questions" - that's a question where the answer can't be a straight Yes or No.

She was a good athlete, but she's a useless and dull TV interviewer.

Time they did away with the "after race interview" anyway it makes me want to reach for my salbutamol inhaler so then there would be no need for Sally G, I vote get rid of her.

Has anyone literally noticed how she literally says "literally" after almost every single word, quite literally!

There was a classic moment when she was commenting on a 400m hurdles race and said "Sinead Dudgeon literally hurdled that last hurdle... and she literally crossed the line." (no joke!)

The BBC rightfully got rid of one dud (John Regis). It's time they got rid of Sally too and brought back Christina Boxer.

I literally did not notice, like, when i caught a bit of the Worlds,like, on the TV this summer. But, like, that might just be, like, me. The kids here like, like, to use other words repetitively, but I've literally never, like, heard literally repeated like, like, literally ever.

Get a decent jounalist to do the interviews and reporting, not an ex-athlete.

I was sorry to see Roger Black go.
Was it a case of always 2nd to MJ in his running career, then really got the hump (rightly) when the BBC bought MJ in and gave him the Daddy's role in the talking shop.

Gunnell was a mediocre athlete in a soft event. She's a less than mediocre tv interviewer. Boxer is no better. Black was rubbish in his year on TV but did improve.

MJ is an excellent commentator though, he really knows what he is talking about.

Crammy does a good job, I just don't like gunnels interviews

Her interviews are really embarrassing. She would make a better job of playing up front for Villareal in Spain alongside her twin Diego Forlan.
