• ‘I’m still in the mentality of chasing, says reigning F1 world champion
Lewis Hamilton has stressed that, despite the win in Hungary on Sunday that gave him the lead in the Formula One world championship for the first time this season, he cannot afford to let up in the pressure he has exerted over his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg. However, both he and his team have made it clear they believe the title fight is far from over- – especially given that he will have to take grid penalties for an engine change later in the season, a scenario they are considering how best to manage.Continue reading...

Newly appointed England manager Sam Allardyce says he will help players enjoy themselves and improve their skills. Speaking at St George’s Park on Monday, Allardyce says the bonding of the team is crucial
The world 200m champion has found her achievements put under a harsh spotlight but says she has nothing to hide and is ready for a tilt at gold in Rio
“Did you hear that?” Dafne Schippers says with a grimace after her knees make a loud cracking sound when she sinks down onto her haunches to have her photograph taken. In the serene and rolling grounds of the Netherlands’ National Sports Centre in Papendal – just outside Arnhem and an hour from Amsterdam – Schippers smiles. “I must be getting old.”
The Dutch sprinter has just turned 24 and, preparing for next month’s Olympic Games in Rio, she exudes strength and power. Schippers clearly just has noisy knees rather than any concerns about ageing for, alongside Usain Bolt in the men’s sprint and Caster Semenya in the women’s 800m, she promises to provide one of the most dramatic stories on the Olympic track.Continue reading...
- South Sydney Rabbitohs 12-20 Manly Sea Eagles
- Souths miss finals for first time under Michael Maguire
Tom Trbojevic and another bunker howler have officially put South Sydney’s finals hopes to bed, after the Rabbitohs went down 20-12 to Manly at Allianz Stadium on Monday night. The defeat was Souths’ seventh in a row and means they will miss the finals for the first time under coach Michael Maguire.
The Rabbitohs were poor in a first half dominated by Trbojevic and trailed 18-0 at the break. They surged back into the contest in the second stanza through tries to Adam Reynolds and Cody Walker before the bunker controversially disallowed a Joe Burgess try in the 59th minute before 8,273 fans.Continue reading...
Suspenseful it may not have been, but the 2016 Tour de France was nip and tuck in one way: the time gaps behind the winner. Chris Froome’s victory margin was 3min more than in 2015 ahead of Nairo Quintana, but the gap to the rider in 10th was only 7min compared with 17min last year; 21min in 2014 for Vincenzo Nibali and 17min again in 2013. Incredibly, after 89 hours of racing, a mere 180 seconds spanned the riders between second and 10th. What this says is that Froome may be a decisive winner but he is not as dominant as, say, Miguel Indurain or Lance Armstrong who would pulverise the race. This points to a levelling of the playing field within cycling, given that only one team – Movistar – placed more than one rider in the top 10 overall.Continue reading...

Well this all felt a bit flat. I was hoping for more bombast. Sam’s being very realistic and considered but I wanted more swagger and more fists banging on tables. Maybe the fact he was calm and considered throughout was part of a tactic to dissuade the press from sticking to Big Sam stereotypes in their copy.
What will it take to see that Sam Allardyce dance again? Oh bantz! A big Big Sam laugh. “Hopefully if we qualify [for the World Cup] and then go a bit further. Maybe then, but I’m not sure you’ll see it anytime in the near future.” Boo.Continue reading...
