BBC presenter Naga Munchetty paid credit to injured sport players as she told listeners her knee injury had still been giving her “gyp” two years on. The 46-year-old first damaged her knee in 2019 and suffered further pain back in March outside the BBC studios when she fell over.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live sports presenter Chris Latchem yesterday, she revealed she is yet to recover from what happened.
“I have Tendonitis, I have a sore hip, I dislocated my knee a couple of years ago which still gives me gyp,” she said on her show.
“And, I certainly noticed I’m not recovering as much as perhaps I did [previously].
“It keeps popping in and out.

“It’s taking me ages particularly to recover from the Tendonitis, a good couple of months.”
But determined not to let it get in her way, Naga went on to say she was still managing to go for runs.
“The resilience of our sports people is frightening,” she added.
Back in March, Naga told presenter Rachel Burden she dislocated her knee just before going live on air.

“I fell over and dislocated it again – and it’s really embarrassing – this morning right outside the office.”
Stunned by her casual admission, Rachel asked if she was OK.
The BBC star said her knee was “only a bit” sore and pushed it straight back in.
“But luckily I went for two runs this weekend, so I’m alright,” she finished.
The BBC Breakfast host went on to say she had been playing Squash and tennis, but admitted she wasn’t the best at the latter sport.
She added: “When I play tennis, I hit the ball so it goes over three courts.
“I have no control, whereas squash, I fly into walls, hit the ball hard. You know, stop, start, little whirlwind, but no finesse.”
BBC Breakfast airs daily from 6am on BBC One. The Naga Munchetty show airs Monday to Wednesday from 10am on BBC Radio 5 Live.
