The Premier League has hit back at claims it fosters a "closed culture of sexism" after leaked emails revealed controversial remarks made by its Chief Executive.
In a statement, the body said: “We do not recognise this characterisation of the working environment at the Premier League, nor do we believe that it can be supported by the facts.
"The Chief Executive has already apologised for any offence caused and a proper review of all the evidence is now underway within the Premier League’s established and rigorous procedures."
"The Premier League continues to be fully committed to treating all staff fairly and on merit, regardless of gender.”
