Following the announcement of the merging of the Sports desks across The London Evening Standard, The Independent, Independent on Sunday and i, new appointments have now been made.

The Head of Sport will be Neil Robinson, currently the Sports Editor of the Independent on Sunday, with his Deputy Head of Sport being Matt Gatward, currently the Sports Editor of the Independent.

Neil said of the merger,’This is a terrific challenge and a great opportunity for us to break the mould of sports coverage. We now have the opportunity to showcase our talents over all our newspapers and there can be no better time to be involved with the Evening Standard than in the run-up to the London Olympic Games.’
