Video transcript

RICHARD MADELEY: What would you like to say to these Tory MPs who, once again, I disagree with, who say that you can be a politician or a public broadcaster. But you can't be both. Why can't you be both?

GARY LINEKER: Well, I think I can. And I am. And I think it's really important, if you've got a big platform, to try and use it for what you think is for the good. And that's what I've always done. And that's what I'll continue to do.

But people are entitled to their opinions. MPs. We all are.
