‘At the moment I’m preparing to work at the Old Trafford matches but the three key words are ‘at the moment,’ said Bumble.

‘Sky have been fantastic and understanding and we will continue to follow the guidelines and see where we are next month.

‘I’m over 70 but I feel as fit as a fiddle. I live eight miles up the road from the ground and I very much hope to be able to work.’
