“What you did there. I see it”

In what might otherwise have been a fairly humdrum affair, Match of the Day commentator Alistair Mann has gone out of his way to turn his Hull City-Swansea City preview for BBC Sport into a work of art this morning – producing, as he has, a wonderful little poem to set the scene.

Oh, that’s good work, Alistair. Real good. Above and beyond.
