A sports-hating fan who wrote in to the Metro newspaper this week is set to be very disappointed when the World Cup starts.

David from Manchester wrote to the paper to herald ITV's handling of the French Open final. Rafa Nadal was on the brink of victory over Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final when the decision was taken to move coverage from main channel ITV1 to ITV4, so that the news could be shown on time.

"As a non-sports fan," David writes. "I'm sick of my regular TV schedule being interrupted by overruning sport or it even being on the main channels in the first place."

Unfortunately for David, the next few weeks could be a bit of a test of patience for him. On the five main free-to-air channels the World Cup will be on for almost eight hours a day between BBC and ITV. The Beeb will also then broadcast almost all day from Wimbledon when the tennis championships are on.
