As football commentator John Motson comes to his retirement, BBC Two devotes tonight to the man.

It starts with Motty Mastermind, with John hosting the show with Alex Scott, Anthony Crolla, Jonathan Pearce and Mark Foster sitting in the black chair. Afterwards is a documentary about his career entitled Motty: the Man Behind the Sheepskin, and finally the Countdown to the Full Monty, where Gary Lineker looks at John’s best commentaries.

Motty Night begins on BBC Two at 20.30.
