Gary Lineker has been host of Match of the Day since 1999.

Gary Lineker will stop serving Match of the day (Game of the Day), a weekly TV show about Premier League matches broadcast by the BBC, until an agreement is reached over the former football star’s use of social media.

The decision, announced by the BBC itself on Friday, follows a row over impartiality over comments Lineker made criticizing the British government’s new asylum policy.

The BBC said it considered Undeniable’s “recent social media activity to be a breach of our rules”..

He added that he should “stay away from taking sides in partisan political issues or political differences.”
