What was the inside story to the Sven saga?

BBC Radio’s Inside Story this week delved into the detail of “Svengate”, and the mechanics of how the former England manager’s affair with Faria Allam was handled by the FA’s then PR, Colin Gibson, and played out in the press.

With contributions from the Telegraph‘s football correspondent, Henry Winter, PR spinmeister Max Clifford, and David Davies, the programme is required listening for anyone working in sports journalism, football reporting, or public relations.
