Radzi's back. He's an expert and a professional, who covered - with great warmth and nous, we might add - many of this year's major events. This recording should be plain-sailing... right?

Of course not. Radzi thinks Kipchoge's sub-two was a phenomenal athletic performance. Jody and Bayo think it's a gimmick. Chaos ensues. He also thinks Christian Taylor might be his Male Athlete of the Year. Claire 'Keep it Karsten' Thomas is apoplectic.

It was terrific fun, however, and we did agree on a few things: Muhammad's supremacy, the ridiculousness of some of the officiating in Doha, that a happy Kat is a pretty unbeatable Kat, and that we'll never forget Barshim's gold-winning performance, nor the men's shot put final.

Thanks very much to those of you who sent in your thoughts on this year's highlights, and to all of you who listen to us. There's a proper Backstraight community growing, and we absolutely love it. 

Merry Christmas, don't forget to vote for Kat or Dina for Sports Personality, and let's raise a glass to what's been one hell of a year in the best sport of them all.
