Maz makes One Show appearance

Royals Women player announces award on prime-time BBC1

5 February 2019

Reading FC Women defender, Maz Pacheco, was recently a guest on BBC prime-time stalwart, The One Show, to reveal the BBC's Icons award for sport.

Pacheco was sat alongside Jamie Redknapp and Andrew Flintoff on the sofa as the nominees for the greatest sports icon of the 20th Century were discussed.

This was a part of the BBC's ongoing Icons series, in which the most influential and inspirational people of the 20th Century are decided in a variety of categories.

Maz was called upon to reveal the winner of the sports category, and famed boxer Muhammad Ali was given the honour for his fights both inside and outside the ring, as a staunch equal rights activist and outspoken critic of the American political establishment in the 1960s and 1970s.

While sat with Alex Jones and Matt Baker, Pacheco also discussed her career so far as a Royal, having joined the club at the start of the season.
