Top BBC earner Gary Lineker is to get a pay cut of nearly a quarter next year as the broadcaster drives for sexual equality in pay packets.
Gary’s salary is currently £1.75 million and that will not change until next year, when his new contract will see his salary trimmed to £1.35 million.
But he said he was happy to keep working for the broadcaster. He said: “I love working with the BBC, and am very proud to continue to be a part of their outstanding football team.
“I’m looking forward to the next five years – with a European Championship and World Cup on the horizon, it’s exciting times for me and the team.”
