Hello and welcome to a special episode of A Question Of Sport,
as we look back at some of the best moments from the series.
Coming up are a host of Olympic gold medallists,
the Formula 1 world champion and possibly the greatest answer
in the history of this show.
OK, Phil, your team ready?
Yes. Number one please, Sue.
Oh, Yuvraj Singh.
Yes. Three, great shout.
-Oh, Bubba Watson.
-Oh, that's Ellie or Becky Downie, one of them.
Are you happy with your team there, Tuffers?
Wow, what a start!
Think I need a lie-down now.
Teams, we have a sports action for you now.
Make a note of the people you see.
-Ford...lovely little break from Ford,
plays the inside ball, and England captain Chris Robshaw is over.
And he...well done.
34.938 is the fastest we have seen so far.
That's a deliberate shot and that's magnificently struck.
That's gone on long way. That's a magnificent stroke from Lara.
Down and out is Will Scott.
And could this be Ovett's first defeat?
Ovett is in trouble. And Coe gets the revenge he wants.
Coe wins, second is Straub, third is Ovett, fourth is Busse.
Game, set and match Ivanisevic, three sets to two.
Now, you saw seven stars there,
and their initials will help you try and solve the puzzle.
So, here it is, it could be a venue, a person, the team, a sporting term.
Before you can add any letters to it, though,
you have to answer a question.
If you get it right, you earn a point and the chance
to solve the puzzle.
This round is on the buzzer.
OK? Just to add to the pressure.
-Here we go, first question.
Goran Ivanisevic was winning the Wimbledon singles title,
but what nationality is he?
-Get in there.
Yes, well done.
-Who are we sure of?
-Right, who do we...?
In go G and I.
-Oh, in go... Oh, they're put in for us.
-Oh, OK. And what is it, what are we trying to get?
-Anything to do with sport.
-Anything to do with sport?
It could be a venue, a person, a team, sporting term.
Good luck. Or do you want to move on?
Shall we move on? Or have you got it? Oh, go on.
It's a really long second word.
It is, isn't it?
Are there extra letters that we have to...?
-The word's Borussia Monchengladbach, no?
Borussia Monchengladbach, no?
Let's see if you're right.
HUGE CHEER AND APPLAUSE
That is better than world-class.
So pleased for you!
Well done, Paul.
All I can say is well done, so, don't need that,
don't need that...
Did we only get one point for that?
Two points for getting it right.
One point for getting the question right.
Now you know what I was up against
when I played against Paul O'Connell.
Not only he got one of the greatest answers of all time
of A Question Of Sport,
he complained about how many points it was worth.
Right, teams, we have got an observation round for you now,
featuring some of the more light-hearted moments from Rio.
The action will come thick and fast, I'll warn you.
So, ready - here we go.
OK, time for the questions.
Matt, we're starting with your team.
What number was the canoeist wearing as he was pushed into the water?
-It was that one, wasn't it?
-Go for it.
-Yes, it was. Well done.
What was the score in the rugby sevens match
being watched by Lego fans?
Oh, Lego heads, sorry!
-Go on, someone, go on.
7-5, right answer. Well done.
Matt, from which country was the athlete
who tripped at the first hurdle?
-Was he wearing blue?
-Yeah, he was.
-And his name began with J,
but it didn't have his country on, did it?
So who...what colour? What type of blue?
Like a blue-y blue.
Wasn't somewhere like Kazakhstan?
It could have been, couldn't it?
I'm starting to doubt that he was in blue now.
-No, he was blue. It was blue.
Shall we go with Kazakhstan?
-Yeah, go for it.
-I think they're in blue.
-I think he looked a bit Eastern European-y.
No, it was Haiti.
So, Phil, what country was the dancing weightlifter from?
-I don't know how you pronounce it.
-You don't know how...?
-To pronounce it, so you can say it.
-Yeah, go on.
-It's something like this.
A country that looked like that or sounded like that.
-Or something like that.
It was something like that.
-Anyone been to Kiribadi?
Yes, on your holidays?
Well, that might be Kazakhstan.
-I don't think it was!
Because I remember there is a sport called something like that.
No, kabaddi, that's called.
Yes, kabaddi, and I thought, "Oh, that looks a bit like that sport."
-What else begins with K?
It's not Kiribadi.
I don't know me geography, but I've never been to Kiribadi.
I don't know another country beginning with K.
Kazakhstan. Let's go Kazakhstan.
That was the rower who capsized, was Kazakhstan.
If you'd have said Kiribadi...
-You would have given me it.
-I would have given it to you.
Oh, I'm sorry!
And there it is.
Oh, no. Sorry.
-Where is Kiribati?
-Where is Kiribati? I'm going to go there.
It's one of the South Sea Islands.
It's in the South Seas?
-There you go, sounds nice, doesn't it?
-Great effort, sorry.
Finally, this one is for both teams,
and when you have an answer, you need to write it on your tablets.
How many animals did you see?
Oh, that is a disgrace.
Not the mascot.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's four.
Would there be any others, like a horse that would be part of the...?
So we've got five.
OK, going to have a guess?
We'll go with what we know.
OK, let's see their answers.
Matt's gone for six,
Tuffers has gone for five.
The correct answer is seven.
So, Matt, you're closest, well done.
We'll take that and we'll win it.
Choice of home or away now.
Chris, coming you first.
-Yeah. Home, please.
Who won his third Premier League winners' medal last season,
having won the title previously in 2005 and 2006?
So, it's Leicester last year.
Trying to think who won it last year.
I'm from Leicester, as well.
Where do the players usually... what position do they play
when they're getting slightly older?
Midfield, centre back.
This is what I thought.
It's not spelt like that, but it is him.
He's bailed me out with Robert Huth.
Is the right answer.
Yes, the Leicester defender.
Are you going home or away?
I'm more nervous for this than I was for my race in Rio!
-I got my home question wrong last time...
-Oh, did you?
..but I feel like I'm in better form this time. Surely?
Go home, then.
-Yeah, we'll go home.
Who won her first World Championship medal in 2015
and then reached both the 400 and 800 metres freestyle finals in Rio,
finishing seventh and fifth respectively?
Right, take your time, there's a lot of information there.
Jessica Ashwood from Australia?
Perfect, yes. Well done.
Nico, over to you now - home or away?
I'm going to go for home.
Of the seven drivers who scored 100 or more points
in the 2016 World Championship,
who is the only one yet to win a Grand Prix?
I think it would be that guy.
-He's not one is he?
-No, he's not.
And he scored more than a hundred?
I'm just going to throw this in the bin, because he's got it right.
Have you gone completely nuts?
We've got a bin.
That is the most magnificent trophy -
but tell us the story of when you went to the nightclub.
That reminds me of Sunday night after winning the race in Abu Dhabi,
we had this trophy at our table in the nightclub
and the waiter comes by really excited, piles in the ice cubes
and shoves in the champagne bottle.
He thought it was an ice bucket or what you call it.
That's a proper ice bucket.
-So, no, for sure, very proud of this, of course.
And, er, very emotional for me, also.
The first thing I did when I saw the trophy was go check where my dad is,
-because he's on there as well.
So, that's one of the most special things for me,
that I managed to achieve the same feat as my dad did 34 years ago.
Would you put the bin back, please?
No, no, I was only joking. That would be disrespectful.
-Right there for you, Matt.
-It's a beautiful trophy.
It is, stunning trophy. And I love the signatures on it.
Personalised, it's lovely.
-I think you've got the answer, as well, haven't you?
-Oh, have you?
Have I got the answer? Are we sure about that?
Well, if he scored more than 100 points...
I'm not sure if he scored more than 100 points, but I think so.
Go for it.
Shall we try Perez?
It was, yes. Sergio Perez. Well done.
OK, captains, you will be out in the middle for this one
but you will need a lot of help from your team-mates.
Matt, you are going first, so out you come.
So, in front of you, Daws, 15 balls.
You need to put them in the basket
that you think matches the correct answer.
Every ball you have left at the end of three questions
-will be worth one point.
Here's your first one.
Which of these European golfers has won the most Ryder Cup points?
A, Henrik Stenson.
B, Justin Rose.
Or C, Padraig Harrington?
What's Rosey, 12 and a half, something like that?
I'm not sure, but I would just say
that Harrington's played in the most,
so I would have to gamble with that.
We're discounting Henrik are we?
So, I've got eight in here and seven in there.
Can we gamble more?
Yeah. Yeah, yeah.
You can split them between the three.
Do you want more into Padraig?
This is on the golfer's head.
You've got three questions remaining.
OK, your ten seconds start now.
What you think?
I'd throw in a couple more. Go nine.
Oh, I was at eight.
Three, two, one.
He's given ten.
Rosey's got a lot.
How many have you gone for B, Justin Rose?
-Oh, so, you've gone ten with Padraig Harrington?
The correct answer is, with 12 points,
B, Justin Rose.
He's had a lot.
-Told you, told you!
Padraig Harrington, ten and a half.
Nearly ten and a half, that's not far away.
Why did you put so many in C?
Oh, we're in trouble now.
Say bye-bye to ten, Daws.
Yeah, see you later.
-Five balls left.
It gets tougher, as the next question you can only put
the balls in two of the baskets, so you have to leave one empty.
Here's your question.
Which of these football teams have won the most domestic league titles?
A, AC Milan.
C, Bayern Munich.
Most domestic leagues?
Oh, Bayern? Bayern? How many have Bayern won?
You've got Barcelona or Real,
and then AC, Juve...
Bayern have just strolled it, haven't they?
What are you thinking?
I'm thinking split it between A and C.
-I'm more inclined to go with C
in the fact that it's a one-horse race every year in that division.
Tends to be, doesn't it?.
AC have got Inter and Juventus.
-They're going to split them up a lot.
I mean, I'm happy to go all in.
We're writing off a not bad team.
Your time starts now, ten seconds.
I'm happy to go all in.
I mean, they have won a lot.
Where do you want me to go?
-Oh, go Bayern, do it.
Very poor during the '40s and '50s, Bayern.
How far back?
You had five at the start of that question.
But, AC Milan, 18.
-That's a lot.
Oh, we're in deep trouble here.
You got it.
Come on, my boy!
So, taking five through to your final question,
you have to do the same now, because you can only use one basket.
All five in one basket.
So, good luck with this one.
Which one of these things happened most recently?
Is it A, Carl Froch beats George Groves at Wembley?
Is it B, Nico Rosberg wins his first F1 Grand Prix?
Or is it C, Sachin Tendulkar retires from Test cricket?
Froch was, what, 2014, was it?
Might have been earlier than that.
But Rosberg, he's been at it a while, hasn't he?
Tendulkar, you said...did you think of a Test series?
-Yeah, it was against the West Indies.
I'd be inclined to say early 2014.
Right, OK. Early '14, Tendulkar.
Froch, we're going...
We're going late '13.
Late summer '13, yeah.
So, is Rosberg's first GP win
anywhere in between?
OK, we're going to put the clock on you now.
You've got to make a decision.
-Rosberg, how long to the Grand Prix?
-You think? How old is he?
-He wasn't winning, and then he...
-Your ten seconds start now.
-A or B?
-It's got to go...
-All in one basket.
All in one. A or B? A or B?
You're ruling out Tendulkar?
-Yeah. Because we're saying Froch was earlier.
-Froch was earlier!
No, no. No.
Steve, which one did you want him to go with?
No, don't say that!
It's which happened most recent.
Oh, yes, no, recently!
No, no, no, no, no... No!
No, no, no, no!
No, no, no, no, no. You're right, you're right.
-I was getting excited. Recently.
-Put the ball back in the hopper.
It's going to be... Oh, it's going to be C.
-Boys, I'm so sorry.
-So... Nico Rosberg was 2012, actually.
And you wanted to go with Tendulkar, didn't you?
-Yeah, we did.
-He retired from Test cricket in November 2013.
Oh. That would be very close to Carl Froch.
Carl Froch beats George Groves at Wembley 2014.
It's the right answer!
This round is on the buzzer and everyone is in play.
On the screen, you will see a picture that will slowly reveal.
The quicker you buzz in, the more points you can win, but be careful -
if you buzz in and get it wrong, your team are frozen out.
Fingers on the buzzers, here comes your first one.
What's that? A gymnast?
-Yes, it is!
You buzzed in, and that's two points.
Well done. Back on the buzzer.
Here we go.
-Yes, it is!
Good work! Well done.
Two points also.
Here's this one.
-David De Gea.
-Yes! It is!
Oh, my God.
Another two pointer.
So, who's this?
Johnson-Thompson. Katarina Johnson-Thompson.
Yes, it is! Katarina.
-Well, did well in that round, Matt, didn't you?
I think I've found the most competitive people in the world!
Next round, our mystery guest round. You need this, Daws, your team.
Who's a guest at The Furchester Hotel?
Phoebe, Phoebe, have you changed the sheets?
We need to get some new...
Oh, Elmo, can you go up and run a lovely bubble bath?
Our new guest is coming, she's very, very important,
we need to help her relax.
All right. Furgus, fix the bath.
Can you fix the bath?
I'm terribly sorry, dear, we don't have time for you now.
We're expecting a very important guest.
Try to get ready, the bath.
THEY TALK OVER EACH OTHER
Fix the bath, our guest wants a lovely bubble bath!
Oh, for goodness... Hang on a minute.
Furchester Hotel, how may I help you?
Isabel, have you seen my tool box?
I'm terribly sorry, I think you're our important guest, aren't you?
I do apologise on behalf of the Furchester.
We'd like to offer you a complimentary cookie.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OK.
Here you go, your delicious, yummy...
Well, that's a mystery with a difference!
Got distracted cos I love Elmo.
-I think it's...
-Listen, that's the only...
We haven't even written anything down. So...
-I definitely think it's her.
-All over that, go for it.
You think it's Sarah? OK, we'll have a look.
Yes, the Paralympic queen it is,
Dame Sarah Storey!
Tuffers, this is for you.
Who is this recreating Sam Torrance's Ryder Cup magic
at The Belfry?
-Now Torrance's second. Over the water at the 18th.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
To win the Ryder Cup.
I think we'll see Jack leap about eight feet in the air.
Not a million miles away, is it?
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
That's an unbelievable shout.
Sit here. Just sit here.
Sit there, sit there, sit there.
Wait until you see if it's right first.
Now, I'm all over it!
Was he ginger?
Is that the one, the young lad who has just retired?
No, it's not. The young lad is very, very short.
-Well, he's not... He's just...
-What's his name?
-His name is, erm...
I reckon Joe Root's not a bad shot.
Joe Root or Bairstow.
-It's not Bairstow.
Go on. I've got nothing.
You've come up with that. Go on.
-Give it a go.
-This is completely random.
-Are you sure?
-It's as good a shot as any.
-OK, let's see.
No. It isn't.
That wasn't, obviously, who you thought it was.
Michael, new captain?
Come on, skip. What do you reckon?
-Was it Chris Woakes?
-Let's have a look.
-Are you right?
-Oh, he plays for Warwickshire!
Yes, it is the England cricketer Chris Woakes.
Tonight's show is ending On The Buzzer.
There's one point for a correct answer,
but one point away if you buzz in and get it wrong -
and I can only accept it from the person who does buzz in.
-It's fastest finger first. Everyone ready?
Here we go. In which sport did Ireland's Katie Taylor win on her...
Yes. Who in 2016 became the first Asian golfer to win
a World Golf Championship event?
Yes. Who were the last English team to win the UEFA Champions League?

who won her first Grand Slam title in 2016.
Yes. The British and Irish Lions toured which country in 1993?
Yes. In which city do the Indians,
the Cavaliers and the Browns all play...
Yes. Which Premier League football ground
staged Rugby League's Four Nations final in November?
No? It was Anfield.

-have represented England in which sport?
Yes. The Champion and World Hurdles are races at which National Hunt?
-Champion and World Hurdles?
Are in Cheltenham.
Yes. Nico Rosberg clinched his first Formula 1 World Championship
-at which Grand Prix?
Yes. Who beat England to win their second successive
Cricket World Cup in 1979?
No! West Indies!
How long did that round go on for?
Thank you for your love. Leave me alone! Leave me alone.
-I feel a little bit guilty.
-A little bit guilty.
I didn't press the button so I wouldn't lose anything.
So, Matt, remind me, what was the score after the first round?
I'm not sure, but I think we were, like, six behind.
How have they done that?
That's, like, from the penthouse to the outhouse
in the space of 24 and a half minutes!
Well, I hope you enjoyed that look back at the series.
Matt, Phil and myself will be back very soon.
