I didn’t set out to be a sports journalist. It was the first twist of many in my career. Never be afraid to deviate from the path you’re on.

These days I’m more open and honest about the perceived advances women have made in the testosterone-fuelled world of sport. We’ve got a way to go but I’m up for the fight.
