Vassos Alexander is one of the best-known sports broadcasters in the country. Every morning he's heard by millions of people as an integral part of the Chris Evans Breakfast show. He is also a presenter, author and endurance runner and is often heard commentating on national radio and television.
When he's actually allowed to have a go at some sports, aside from the aforementioned running it tends not to end well; Vassos once narrowly avoided hitting a tree in a rally car, actually crashed during a race at Silverstone and his cricket average is a frankly pathetic 0.5!
Born and bred in London, Vassos has been working for the BBC since 2004, where he has covered almost every sporting event you can think of - from the Olympics to The Ashes, Wimbledon to Wentworth, the World Cup to the World Darts. He's also a keen runner who's completed several 3-hour marathons, as well as an Ironman triathlon (2.4m swim, 112m bike, 26.2m run).
In March 2016, his book Don't Stop Me Now was published by Bloomsbury books, charting his rise from couch potato to accomplished marathon runner. Part escapee, part self-discovery, part therapy and part fitness, the book is a funny and inspiring book for anyone with a pair of well-worn trainers by the door... or thinking of buying a pair.
