Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has scooped the award for best sports pundit at the Royal Television Society Programme Awards.

The 39-year-old has received widespread praise for his work within the media, which he began back in 2011 following his retirement from football in February that year.

Neville, who was not in attendance at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London to collect the award on Tuesday night, wrote on Twitter: "Thanks to all I work with and watch us."

The former full-back, who works for Sky Sports, beat the BBC's Gabby Logan and Channel 4 Racing's Clare Balding to win the gong.
