  • Masters: Augusta’s magic moments

    As Augusta
    fever grows, Eurosport-Yahoo!'s Toby Keel looks back on memorable moments in
    Masters history.

    Tiger's chip-in - 2005

    Tiger Woods was winless at the Majors for
    two seasons heading to Augusta
    in 2005, but turned things round even if at times he was not at his most
    dominant. Just as it looked as if he was going to lose out to Chris DiMarco, he
    chipped from the back of the 16th green, watched as the ball stopped
    agonisingly on the lip, and then roared and punched the air as the ball dropped
    in! Such a great moment that almost everyone forgets that he bogeyed the next
    to almost blow his

  • 20 phrases Fabio Capello should learn

    Fabio Capello has insisted that he needs just 100 words to fulfil his £6 million-a-year job as England manager.  

    The Italian has been in charge for nearly three and a half years now, but is still struggling to learn the language.

    At his press conference on Tuesday he responded to criticism of his linguistic skills by saying: "I think when I speak with them (the players), they understand everything.

    "If I need to speak about the economy or other things, I can't. But with tactics, I don't have to speak about a lot of different things. Maximum 100 words."

    We don't know what 100 words Capello

    prompts our look at the top 10 moments when animals stole the sporting

    1. The Twickenham fox,
    Calcutta Cup match, March 2011

    Sunday's Calcutta Cup match might have been low on thrills,
    but the pre-match entertainment was unforgettable as a picture-book-cute fox
    wandered all over Twickenham, enthralling the crowd and TV viewers alike
    through the mere act of padding around on the hallowed turf.

    Perhaps the unticketed visitor even gave the home side a bit
    of inspiration: just as foxes are the ultimate urban survivors,  so England

  • Top 10 decisive sporting blunders

    Mario Balotelli's moment of madness has been blamed for costing Manchester City a place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

    Still, look on the bright side: at least he inspired our entertaining look at these moments from the history of sport where an athlete's blunder has had a heavy price.

  • Top 10 golden oldies

    As Helen Clitheroe wins European gold at age 37, we look
    at evergreen sports stars who have kept on performing at the top level when they
    should have had their feet up with a mug of Horlicks.

    British distance runner Clitheroe defied her 37 years
    at the weekend as she took gold in the women's 3,000m at the European Indoor
    Championships in Paris.

    The victory marked the end of years of frustration for
    Clitheroe, who had always missed out on the medals in major championships.

    But she persevered - despite losing her
    lottery funding - and declared the medal "an absolute dream come true for me. I've
