    Denmark seal maiden World Cup triumph in Melbourne

    Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen kept their nerve and shot a six-under-par 66 in the final round fourballs to give Denmark a first World Cup of Golf triumph by four strokes at Kingston Heath on Sunday. "It's difficult to describe my feelings," said Kjeldsen, before lifting the Hopkins Trophy. A friendship has been built as well, and I think that's the whole point of the World Cup of Golf." French duo Victor Dubuisson and Romain Langasque led the chasing pack with a sparkling nine-birdie 63 to share second place on 16-under with China's Wu Anshun and Li Haotong (65) as well as American pairing Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker (66).

    Dominant Danes extend World Cup lead in Melbourne

    Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen remained on course to claim a first World Cup of Golf for Denmark after shooting a two-under-par 70 in Saturday's foursomes to extend their overnight lead to four strokes. It's a four shot lead, which is really nice, but it's not going to be easy." Americans Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker were second after a 69 in the alternate shot format moved them to 10-under, a shot better than China's Wu Anshun and Li Haotong, who made a double bogey-bogey start but recovered for a round of par 72. Kjeldsen got the ball onto the green with a fine recovery shot but the pair three-putted for a bogey to take a little bit of the shine off their day. More »

    By Andrew Downie SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Romario, the former World Cup winner turned senator, called in a report on Wednesday for the indictment of seven Brazilian football officials in what he called "the biggest sports scandal of all time." The president of the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF), Marco Polo Del Nero, was one of those accused of crimes that include racketeering, money laundering and tax offences. "We can sum this up by stating that practically everything the CBF did under the control of these people we cited was corrupt," Rodrigues said. More »
