Sport Relief – the UK’s biennial charity fundraising telethon – got under way on BBC TV on Friday night with an acknowledgement by its host – ex-England football star Gary Lineker – that the country is living through “extraordinary and unprecedented times”.

Lineker added that a “chunk” of the money raised from Sport Relief will go towards those affected by the pandemic.

The BBC has said it will do “everything possible to keep people safe” as the show is staged in front of a live studio audience.
