With news of his impending divorce from his sick wife emerging today, the football world has expressed shock in learning that Richard Keys’ alleged affair with his daughter’s friend is the first time he’s cheated on his wife.
Fans of the former Sky Sports and current beIN Sports presenter reacted to the revelations in collective consternation, with many admitting that it had forced them to reevaluate how they view the 59-year-old.
“I’m really disappointed. I had assumed that he’d been smashing everything that moves,” said Jim Trent, a fervent fan of the presenter. “He’d given me the impression that he was a real philanderer, so it’s a shock to the system to find out this is the first time. Maybe he’s not the man I thought he was.”
“Was it all lies?” asked another fan, Royce David. “Was it all talk and no substance? It’s awful. He should be ashamed of himself.”
At press time, Keys hit back at the allegations, insisting that if journalists had done their jobs they’d realise he’s been having affairs for decades.
