That poshest of rowing races takes place this afternoon.

Last year Oxford won the men’s race while Cambridge won the women’s race. Meanwhile, the vast majority of the British public arguably lost overall. Let’s be honest, most of us want to see some over-privileged toffs sink in the Thames – and given that the Cambridge men’s cox is called Hugo Ramambason, you can tell this is not a sport for the people.

The Boat Races is on BBC One at 15.50.
