Richard Keys born 23 April 1957 in Coventry, England, is a television presenter on the British sports channel Sky Sports. In the mid to late 1980s, he co-presented TV-am, a breakfast show on the ITV network, with Anne Diamond. He also commentated on football for the ITV network.

Since 1992, he has been presenting Sky Sports' Premiership football programme on Sunday afternoons, "Super Sunday". He also presented another football programme on Sky Sports, "Monday Night Football". Ian Payne took over "Monday Night Football" in 2003, which coincided with Sky gaining rights for the UEFA Champions League.

He attended Whitley Abbey Comprehensive School in Whitley, Coventry.

He presented Euro 2008 for Al Jazeera Sports. [ [http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-1024319/Why-FA-board-rebels-didnt-Burton-centre.html Why the FA board rebels didn't go for Burton centre | Mail Online ] ]

Controversy

Keys was involved in controversy while presenting The Faroe Islands against Scotland in a Euro 2008 qualifier on 6 June 2007 on Sky Sports. Shortly before closing the programme when he thought he was off-air he said "Nay promos, can't be arsed, that’s it, see ya. Come on. Yeah see ya. Daft little ground, silly game, fuck off." The feed was broadcast on the Sky High Definition channel. Sky apologized, noting that Keys was at the end of a six-hour shift and was directing his comments towards the Faroe Islands' "quirky" stadium in Toftir rather than Scottish football. Keys retained his position at Sky Sports.
