What other honours and awards has Gabby Logan received?

In the 1990s, Gabby became one of the first female sports anchors to break into terrestrial television. She received praise for her work in a predominantly male field, from fellow professionals such as Ally McCoist and Des Lynam.

Her relaxed demeanour and natural style of banter allowed her to comfortably hold her own, alongside other ex-pro sports stars she was working with.

Gabby is no stranger to winning awards for her presenting skills, as she won "Sports Presenter of the Year" four times at the Television and Radio Industries Awards in 2000, 2002, 2004 and 2014.
