Two contrasting articles in today's Grauniad.

One noting that "the Football Association, Rugby Football Union, England and Wales Cricket Board, Lawn Tennis Association, England Golf, UK Athletics and British Cycling had just one black board member between them". https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2020/jun/15/an-ugly-truth-british-sports-bodies-admit-failure-to-confront-racism

The other, a fantastic letter from Marcus Rashford to the UK Govt, calling on them to do more to support people living in poverty and extend the food voucher scheme over the summer holidays, noting that he was raised by a single parent and often relied upon food banks for their Xmas dinner. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/jun/15/protect-the-vulnerable-marcus-rashfords-emotional-letter-to-mps
