Alex Scott has responded to the rumours that she's about to replace Sue Barker as the host of A Question of Sport.
Having recently been linked with the role, the former professional footballer has since received racist abuse from online trolls, though many have also jumped to her defence.
On Friday (September 18), the ex-Arsenal player, current pundit and presenter took to Twitter to thank those who have offered their support. She also appeared to suggest she's yet to sign a deal with the BBC quiz show.
She is, however, delighted that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has finally agreed to sign a new contract for Arsenal.
"The love & support shown to me yesterday has me smiling through the weekend #thankyou I am going to #keeponkeepingon like always!" she tweeted.
"The only thing that is signed sealed delivered that I am buzzing about right now though is... @Aubameyang7 @Arsenal #COYG."
Speaking at a special International Women's Day event, Alex explained (via The Sun): "The past year has been really hard in terms of trolling. It led me to go and seek therapy, to speak about it. And it's the best thing I've ever done.
"I would say I'm still on a journey. I'm still in therapy so I'm still learning how to communicate with my emotions more."
Alex explained that she loves "interacting with people" and therefore questioned why she should have to leave social media in order to live a peaceful life, adding: "But it got to a point where it was too hard for me."
