Emma Raducanu’s rise: only just the beginning

There’s the impossible and then there’s the completely unbelievable.

This past week has been all about Emma Raducanu.

We talk to the sports journalist and commentator Anne-Marie Batson about the young powerhouse that is Emma Raducanu, what she means for the British game and the game in general, as well as why female tennis players are such huge superstars compared to those from other sports?

And whether Raducanu represents the young face of modern Britain, or whether that will add to the weight of pressure on someone who should be left alone to enjoy her career and her talent?
