I’d been scheduled to cover the Champions League quarter-final between Borussia Dortmund and AS Monaco on this shift but when the team news failed to come in at 6.45pm, I realised something wasn’t quite right. As we now know, the Dortmund team bus was subjected to an explosive attack in which Marc Bartra sustained injuries to his arm.

Thus, my live blog was converted to that of a breaking news story and I covered the aftermath of the postponed game in Germany. I broke the news of the attack before it was aired on Sky Sports News and my work was subsequently praised by Sky Sports News Executive Editor, Andy Thompson.

The blog was used for the rescheduled game the following evening, but if you scroll down to the bottom of this link, you will see the work I carried out that evening.
