BBC accused of biased coverage of Euro 2020 final and insensitivity towards Emma Raducanu’s Wimbledon exit

THE BBC has been accused of biased coverage of the Euro 2020 final and insensitivity towards Emma Raducanu’s Wimbledon exit.

The broadcaster received 133 complaints of pro-English commentary as the Three Lions played their first major final in 55 years.

Italy fans flooded the Beeb with a staggering 133 complaints about “offensive” pro-England commentary during the football.

And 252 people moaned about broadcaster and former tennis player John McEnroe, 62, suggesting Raducanu, 18, could not cope with the pressure.

She had retired on medical grounds. McEnroe said: “It appears like it just got too much.

“It makes you look at the guys and girls who have been around for so long and wonder how they handle it.” Viewers said it was insensitive of her medical treatment.

The Beeb said his view was “based on both his own experience and those of current players”.

Former Love Island contestant Dr Alex George, an A&E doctor, hit back: “I didn’t realise John McEnroe was medically qualified or that he has X-ray vision!”
