Fans ask why Martin Tyler is on Sky Sports commentary having ‘lost his voice’

Sky Sports viewers questioned why Martin Tyler was on commentary duty as Arsenal took on Brighton in the Premier League – because of his hoarse voice.

The veteran broadcaster was in his usual Super Sunday slot alongside Gary Neville – but his voice kept cracking up while sounding below his usual standards.

Fans couldn't help but ask why a replacement wasn't brought in ahead of the fixture, with Tyler having battle on in the commentary box.

A fourth agreed: "Martin Tyler seems to have lost his voice and yet he's still on commentary today??"

The 77-year-old has ever intention to stay in his lead commentary role next season, while also working for beIN Sports.

Having been with Sky since the inception of the Premier League back in 1992, he isn't set to follow in the footsteps of the retiring Jeff Stelling and departing Graeme Souness.

With Tyler covering his first television game in 1974, he recently payed tribute to the late John Motson.

He said: "He was somebody I admired in terms of the profession enormously. His preparation was second-to-none, his attention to detail, his wish to know everything possible about the game he was about to broadcast.

"He was a real example to me for that."
