Gabby Logan, 48, looks in shape as she limbers up for her Olympic marathon of BBC coverage

Gabby Logan is limbering up for her own Olympic marathon, with the former gymnast proving she can still do the splits.

The TV presenter, 48, will front the BBC‘s coverage of the Games in Tokyo starting today – kicking off a gruelling run where she will be on screen every day for the next fortnight from the studios in Salford.

This will be Mrs Logan’s fourth time presenting at the Olympics, after she made her debut in Beijing in 2008 hosting Games Today and Olympics Tonight.

In pictures taken ahead of Tokyo 2020, she proved she’s still as flexible as ever as she did the splits and extended her leg above her head.

Earlier this week she enjoyed her last hurrah before fronting the Olympics with a family trip to Cornwall.

Mrs Logan, who recently finished presenting the BBC’s Euro 2020 schedule, shared snaps on Instagram of her and husband Kenny Logan, 49, a former Scotland rugby player, making the most of the heatwave by the coast. 

But from today she will be back to work, as she presents the two-week Olympic coverage from 9am to 3pm every day.

Asked how this year’s Games will be different from previous years, Mrs Logan told the August issue of Good Housekeeping magazine: ‘We’ll be presenting from Salford this year, using a green screen to look like Tokyo!’

She added: ‘It’ll be tough from a concentration point of view… but we’ll do our best to create a great atmosphere.’

She went to the Commonwealth Games in Auckland in 1990, but injured her back and developed sciatica shortly after. Unable to train or compete, she gave up the sport.
