You tell him before the interview starts. Its the only DECENT thing to do.
That's great TV.
The athlete is there.
The interviewer has the news.
How does he not tell him right then?
No, it's total B.S.
Are you kidding?
The camera is on them live.
They're not telling him his mother died.
It's just a race.
But the network would be passed if he did that off camera.
