Gary Lineker will be absent from the BBC’s FA Cup on Sunday after struggling with voice problems.
Lineker was due to moderate the channel’s live coverage of the Brighton-Grimsby clash on Sunday afternoon.
However, he did noticeably struggle with his voice during Saturday’s Manchester City-Burnley game and has pulled out of Sunday’s plans after his voice deteriorated overnight, according to the BBC.
The match will instead be moderated by BBC colleague Alex Scott.
