Your article entitled “Times Sports Daily launches first” (MW May 10) is nonsense. The Times’ copycat supplement, in its guise as Sports Daily, was launched on Tuesday May 8 and as such, is far from stealing a march on The Daily Telegraph.
On Monday May 7, The Daily Telegraph launched its daily sports section, and followed it on May 8 with the first Tuesday standalone section. The Daily Telegraph has indeed stuck to its promise of becoming the first broadsheet newspaper to produce a standalone section dedicated to offering the best in sports journalism on a daily basis. The Telegraph was the first UK broadsheet to launch a separate Monday sports supplement (in 1990) and also as the first to launch a Saturday supplement (in 1998). Is it any wonder that others follow in our wake?
