The swimmer was Hannah Miley.
The sprinter was Allyson Felix.
-Of course it was.
-And the tennis player, the Wimbledon champion,
No offence, lads, but you're supposed to know your cricket.
You know what I mean? I'm not here for the cricket.
You did well, Stuart.
End of the round, then.
Phil's on six, Matt in front on 11.
We have a Sports Action for you now.
Make a note of the stars you see.
Just a little trickle... Yes, he can!
Well done. Home in 30.
This is going to be a nail-biting last second.
And what a finish. What a finish.
Lots of energy into that element.
Lovely style, lovely control, right to the very end.
Oh, I think that's out.
Inside edge from Marcus Trescothick.
Oh, he has played it.
Oh, yes, it certainly does!
It's his first goal for the club.
Beautifully taken by him.
A try for South Africa.
It is time to fill in a crossword.
You'll take it in turns to use the surnames of the stars
you saw to fill in the gaps.
-And, Phil, as you are trailing, you get to go first.
Would it be Pietersen? JP Pietersen?
-Is it a PIE-tersen or a Peterson?
-Cos it's South African.
-Got to be an IE, hasn't it?
-How many letters?
Can you spell... Do you know how to spell Pietersen?
-Does that fit it?
Go on, mate, you got that. Go for your life.
OK. Let's see.
-Well done. APPLAUSE
Good work, good work.
Back in the game.
-Well, I think you're...
I think you're bang on here.
-I mean, that must be, though?
Go for it.
Four across, Page.
Four across, Page.
Let's have a look. It is, well done.
Bryony Page winning a silver medal at the Rio Olympics.

Yeah, I think so.

And, Daws, have you got it?
Oh, of course it is.
-No, I've got it.
-Yes, I have, I have.
I'll lay good money that you haven't.
-Yes, I have.
-You just thought of a name that fits in there.
-No, I haven't.
-I've got it. Have you witnessed that, Ross?
-And where's that supposed to fit in? There?
It's supposed to fit in there, but we can shoehorn it in a bit.
-What you going for?
I'm going to go... Say V.
-Begin with V.
-You're going Vorjan?
-Go with it.
-Right, Tuffers, you've got one guess.
Well, I thought it was Grosjean, but it doesn't fit, does it?
-So we're going to just...
..we're going to just swap the letters about and say Gorjan.
-Oh, I think it is a G.
There is a G. Here it is, it is...
The Belgian tennis star. That's who we were looking for.
Anyway, bad luck, no point there,
but end of the round,
Phil's on ten, Matt in front on 14.
It's time for a new quickfire round called The Accumulator.
Each team will have 45 seconds to answer as many questions as possible
to accumulate points.
You'll get one point for each correct answer,
but you'll lose a point for a wrong answer or a pass.
You can confer, but I can only accept your first answer.

We may as well, if we don't know it, just keep flying on.
But then, hold on, we could be ten down.
-Let's do it.
-Here we go.

Holland are good.
I think Aussie are good, as well.

-Pretty sure. He got one against us.
-Did he? That's handy.
-Well, not for you, but I mean...
-And he got one against England.
-And he got one against...
-Erm, the West Indies.
And then I think he might have even got one against Australia.
That's a massive feat, innit?
I'm going to say Virat Kohli.
The Indian captain is the right answer. Well done.
Well done. mate.
Good. In the game. Still in. Still in the game.
OK, teams, now it's time to test your knowledge
of sporting stats in a game of Higher Or Lower.
Your starting point is Bjorn Borg's Grand Slam singles titles.
How many would you guess that might be?
Ooh, closer. It's 11.
So, 11. That's your starting number.
-So, Phil, coming to you first.
is the number of teams to have won the FA Cup higher or lower than 11?
Right, let's have a look. Right, Arsenal.
-Yeah, Man City. Spurs?
Lower. Lower. We're starting to run out of names now.
There's six off the top of our head.
Sue, we will go...
-You're going lower.
Let's have a look.
It is lower. Yes.
-Well done, team.
So, Matt, is the number of British drivers to have won the Formula 1

Oh, Surtees? You just pop Surtees...?
-Oh, Mike Hawthorn.
How many's that? One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine.
-We've got nine.
-And you said higher or lower?
-There's got to be an extra one, then.
So, yeah, we go higher.
-Go on, Max, get in there.
-I'm going to say higher.
You're going higher.
Let's have a look.
It is, yes.
I think the only one you didn't mention was James Hunt.
Oh, how could I forget the legend?
OK, Phil, are the number of Australian batsmen
to have scored over 6,000 Test runs higher or lower than ten?
-That would be higher, wouldn't it?
Higher than ten?
-Langer. Langer would have got six, I would say.
Who's in the current side that would have...?
I mean, people like, you know, little opening fella, Warner,
-wouldn't have got there, would he, yet?
-I don't think so.
Boony would have, 100 Tests, yep. You almost have to look at
-Yeah, look at the matches.
Slater. I think they would have.
-You reckon higher?
-I think it would be higher than ten.
Yeah? Well, we've just come with a run there.
If you can name that many.
Funnily enough, most of them were during when I played.
Oh, Mark and Steve!
-Oh, it's got to be higher. Higher, Sue.
It is, yes.
And others I didn't hear you say were Mike Hussey, Neil Harvey.
And finally, Matt, back to your team.

at the Rio Olympics higher or lower than 13?

Then in road racing, we had four...
There was four medals available.

-these, are we?
Oh, OK. But we've got that there.
-Yeah, that's definitely five. Yeah.
-But as countries go...
-So we've got five.
-Five different countries.
How many more medals are there?
Which are the seven that you've got that are definite?
GB, Germany, Holland, China, Italy, America, Switzerland.
-And what other medals are there?
There's two in mountain biking and two in BMX.
Oh, forgot about them!
-But then that only puts you at...
How many are you on? Eight?
Yes. Higher or lower than 13.
-Good point, Max.
-You go, you go.
Yeah, good logic. Lower.
-You're going lower and it is...
Belgium and Sweden and Columbia.
So, end of the round
and Phil is on 16,
Matt in front on 18.
Another new round now, the Roll Of Honour.
You'll be answering questions on golfing legend Seve Ballesteros.
But before we get to the questions, sit back and take a look at some of
the reasons why he is considered one of the greatest ever.
Stay still if you don't mind, please.
I know you're nervous, but I am, too.
Oh, yes, he's at it again.
He really is charged up.
I suppose this is what it means by having your adrenaline flowing,
I suppose. He's up, he's running, he's jumping, he's hurling.
He really is. He's extraordinary.
Swings quite a way from there.
He's got the pace, he has, it's there!
That's the magic we're waiting for.
I look back 20 years ago,
I would never have thought I was going to be so high.
Ballesteros is the champion.
What a special champion.
OK. It's question time now and they are worth one,
two and three points respectively.
So, Phil, we're going to start with you. Here's your one point.
-Seve was paired with which player a record number of times in
-the Ryder Cup?
It was, Jose Maria Olazabal. Well done.
Matt, for one point, in which year did Seve help Europe to their first
Ryder Cup success?
Oh, sorry, not as a captain.
No, it didn't say captain.
So you know what it was.
It was... '85.
So no point there.
-So, Phil, your two point question.
Seve became world number one for the first time in 1986,
taking over from which fellow European?
Oh, that's a good shout. '86. It's a belter.
-He was around then, weren't he?
-This could put you in the lead.
Langer. I think Langer.
Bernhard Langer is the right answer!
Great. Well done.
That's me, I'm off!
Well done. So, Matt, for your two points,
on which course did Seve win the Open Championship twice?
I can't get Lytham out of my head.
Go with it.
Go with your heart.
-You've gone for Lytham.
'79 and '88, he won it at Royal Lytham and St Andrews.
-Yes. Get in there.
Now, for three points,
in which year was Seve and Greg Norman beaten by Larry Mize in a
play-off at the Masters?
Oh, I remember it. Larry Mize chipped in, as well, didn't he?
Larry Mize chipped in.
I'm terrible on years.
What was it at the Masters?
It's probably... It must be...
'80s. We're thinking '87.
What are you thinking?
We're thinking exactly the same.
Oh, but do you believe him?
-Go with it.
-Can't go anywhere else.
-We've got to.
-Come on, Sue, '87.
Here's Matt's three point question.
-..European Ryder Cup team at Valderrama in '97.
Who was the opposing captain?
Oh, come on.
Come on, I can see his face now.
Have you got that?
I have got that.
Not a chance you got that.
I can see his face now...
He had more hair than that though. He had a bit more hair.
-Going to have a guess?
-Well, I've just got Kite or Pavin.
Kite might be a good shout.
It was Tom Kite, Tom Kite.
-I don't know about this.
-That looks like Tom Kite.
It does look a bit like Tom Kite.
Crenshaw was '99.
Matt is on 20, but Phil is in front on 22.
Well, this will decide it,
we are ending the show with a Sprint Finish.
And, Matt, you are going first.
-Out you come.
-Come on then, here we go.
Let's have it, let's have it.
I need full focus.
Come on, team. Feel it.
Feel it, I love it.
Are you ready? Go.
Oh, it's this one.
-Yeah. And the whole race.
-Yes. Yes, yes, yes.
Who's that footballer?
But I'm doing this.
-Yes. What's his first name?
-Pan, something Pan.
Oh, I'm running and then at the end it's very close.
Marathon... Sprint finish.
-Yes, yes, yes.
-That position. He takes the ball, he throws the ball.
-Pass, I'm useless.
Not half. What's half of a half?
And what does Santa put his presents in?
Oh, you race on this.
-Yes, you do.
Oh, we'll take that, well played.
-Oh, you scored five points.
A lot of work for five, a lot of work for five.
Tuffers, up you come.
-Four to win.
-Here we go.
Oh, you sit in it. It's the Winter Olympics.
Oh, brilliant tennis player.
-One big massive arm.
No, woman. Woman.
No, back in the day.
Oh, in football, you got four of them.
-Get on with it.
-Cricketers wear them on their head.
-No, the cap, it's a nickname...
The cap. Nickname.
Oh, the Kiwis have never been beaten there at rugby.
-You play there. Funny shaped ground.
-Brilliant, well done.
Load of money, plays for Man United, not very good, I think.
-No, no, midfielder.
So you ran out of time with Pogba, I'm afraid.
But you needed four to win...
and you scored five.
And well done to Phil's team and a huge thank you to all of our guests.
