"Lord Moynihan wants Royal and Ancient to accept women members"

The outgoing British Olympic Association chairman has called on the Royal and Ancient Golf Club to open up its membership to women, making the remarks on BBC Radio 5 to Eleanor Oldroyd. (Thanks to reader Chris for this.)

Moynihan added: "It is remarkable that Augusta has changed, but the Royal and Ancient is still there having not entitled and allowed complete equality of opportunity for women in this country.

"It should be an embedded characteristic of 21st century sport, especially when you see the contribution the athletes make.

"Let's get real and let's get on with the job of providing equality of opportunity across sports, sports administration as well as sporting opportunity."
