Espn's director of communications David Scott has explained that it will not be possible for Burgundy's appearance to take place because of the breaking news that football star Jameis Winston will not face sexual assault charges following a highly-publicised investigation.

Scott said in a statement: "Ron Burgundy's scheduled Thurs. appearance on @SportsCenter has been cancelled in light of the potential implications of any news from the State Attorney's press conference in [Florida].

"As of this time, there is no reschedule date for Ron Burgundy."
