The Present Simple Tense is frequently used for running commentary. This offers a continuous narrative that describes events as they occur, which is particularly prevalent in sports. In order to save time and add drama, sports broadcasters and other live broadcasts often utilise the present simple while commentating on current events. Examples include "Ronnie passes to Jim, he shoots, he scores!" and "Waseem hits a six over to the stands."
