Mark Bolton, host of Spanish football on Sky, says he will not be renewing his contract.

Writing on Twitter, Mark said: “After 6 successful and enjoyable years presenting Spanish football for Sky Sports, this past season will be my last.

“My current Sky contract expires in August and I will not be renewing it.

“Spanish football enjoys greater popularity now than ever and whilst sad to leave a product for which I have great affection, I am proud to have played a significant role in its development over the past few years. I am grateful to Sky Sports for their support in allowing me to do so.

“Having expressed a long felt desire to take on new challenges, I have concluded these will be more successfully pursued outside of Sky Sports.

“I wish the team every success.”
