Jack Grealish would have heard the smattering of boos from England supporters inside Wembley at half-time and there was certainly no mistaking the roar of approval when he was finally given his major tournament debut. The smile on Grealish’s face when he had appeared on the big screens just after half-time showed a man who is desperate to play to the crowd and is relishing his role as England’s next hero in waiting. No doubt the next demand will be for Grealish to start England’s final group gam

Cameron Norrie holds all British hopes at this year's Queen’s Club Championships as he defeated 19-year-old compatriot Jack Draper 6-3, 6-3 to advance to Saturday’s semi-finals. The 25 year-old British No2 will not know his opponent until Saturday as the match between American Frances Tiafoe and Canadian Denis Shapovalov, who is a set to the good, was suspended after a day where four and a half hour's play was lost due to heavy rain in west London.

Earning a place on the United States Olympic team is tough at the best of times - but booking your ticket to a third, fourth or even fifth Games during a pandemic is an enormous challenge. "Whether it's a wreck on the road that makes you delayed getting to a game, whether it's rain causing you to have to stop in the third inning, things are out of your control," twice Olympic softball player Cat Osterman told Reuters. "In '04, I was 21 - super young, super just kind of naive to the whole process," said Osterman, who has partnered with Dick's Sporting Goods to bring awareness of the sport to a new generation.

The American record holder in the 1,500 metres and 5,000m was included in the lineup for those events at the trials in Eugene, Oregon, despite receiving a four-year ban after testing positive for an anabolic steroid, prompting an outcry from the Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) and fellow athletes. "I never had any intention of competing if this injunction wasn’t granted," she wrote in a lengthy statement posted on social media. Houlihan said she would continue with her appeal in Switzerland after the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which upheld her ban, issues its full ruling in the case.
