Presenter Richard Keys resigns from Sky Sports

Thursday January 27, 2011

Following Sky Sports’ decision to sack Andy Gray on Tuesday, TV presenter Richard Keys has resigned.

The two men were caught up in a sexism row which led to Andy losing his job. Fifty-three-year-old Richard’s decision comes after 20 years of working for the channel.

Confirming his departure he said: “I am deeply sorry for my remarks and the offence they have caused; it was wrong and it should not have happened.”

He added: “I have thought long and hard and reached the decision that it is time to move on… I wish Sky Sports continued success in the future.”
