    BBC Sport Match of the Day enters record books

    Manchester United were the champions in the first season Match of the Day was broadcast.

    Match of the Day has been recognised by Guinness World Records as the longest-running football TV programme in the world.

    The BBC show is celebrating its 50th year after launching on 22 August 1964.

    Former England captain Gary Lineker has presented

    for the past 16 years.

    "It's a great honour for all at Match of the Day to achieve a Guinness World Records title and to be included in the Guinness World Records Book," he said.

    "We all feel privileged to work on such an iconic show and are delighted that six million people continue to enjoy that 90-minute digest of all the Premier League action each weekend.

    "The show has really evolved in recent years and continues to set the football agenda every Saturday night. Long may it continue"

    Match of the Day was first broadcast on BBC Two, which was available only in London at the time. It was moved to BBC One in 1966.

    The final Match of the Day of this season is on BBC One Sunday at 22:30 BST.
