Game on in battle of sexes for the TV remote control

Editor's Viewpoint

With the Euros reaching a climax and Wimbledon just starting, there are bound to be scraps over control of the television remote control as husbands and wives want to tune in to their favoured sport.

The women, having seen men hog the television for the past couple of weeks, will argue that it is their time to put their feet up, eat their dinner off a tray and get someone else to do the washing-up as they settle down for a fortnight of tennis and celebrity spotting around the hallowed courts.

They may even want the odd punnet of strawberries and cream, and perhaps a glass of something bubbly, to create the right atmosphere.
