Cheers and applause quickly drowned out some boos as England players kneeled on Sunday in an anti-racism gesture at kick-off against Croatia in their Euro 2020 opener at Wembley. England players were shocked by jeering at the gesture from a minority of fans in two friendlies prior to the tournament. Manager Gareth Southgate, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and leading football figures had appealed for a stop to that.
French Open organisers defended their handling of the Naomi Osaka situation on Sunday but accepted that the governing bodies need to do better on mental health issues following the Japanese player's exit from the Grand Slam over her media boycott. Osaka announced in the build-up to the French Open that she would not attend the mandatory post-match press conferences for players, saying the questioning by journalists impacts her mental well-being. The four-time Grand Slam winner stuck to her stance and did not face the media after her opening win, leading to a $15,000 fine and a strongly-worded letter from the board of the four Grand Slam tournaments warning her of possible expulsion from Roland Garros and future majors.

Former Danish internationals Peter Schmeichel and Michael Laudrup have harshly criticised governing body UEFA over their handling of the collapse of Christian Eriksen during Denmark's Euro 2020 opener against Finland on Saturday. Eriksen collapsed just before halftime and was taken to hospital after receiving CPR on the pitch, with UEFA offering the players the choice of either resuming the game on Saturday night, or beginning again on Sunday at 1200 local time (1000 GMT). "It's a ridiculous decision by UEFA, they should have tried to work out a different scenario and shown a little bit of compassion, and they didn't," Schmeichel, whose son Kasper was in goal for Denmark when the incident occurred, told the BBC.
The 35-year-old could have plenty of supporters in the crowd at Torrey Pines.
England slumped to their first Test series defeat on home soil since 2014 as they surrendered to New Zealand in meek fashion at Edgbaston. The result was already a certainty when the teams arrived at the ground for day four, with Saturday's batting collapse settling matters in the tourists' favour. Tom Latham, captaining a weakened side in the absence of world number one batsman Kane Williamson won the match with a steer to the third man boundary. In total there was just under an hour of play on

PARIS (Reuters) -Czech Barbora Krejcikova said she was going to enjoy a rare glass of champagne on Sunday after completing a singles-doubles title sweep at the French Open by taking the women's doubles trophy with compatriot Katerina Siniakova. Krejcikova became the first player to win both the women's singles and doubles title in Paris since Frenchwoman Mary Pierce completed the feat in 2000 after the Czech duo beat Iga Swiatek and Bethanie Mattek-Sands 6-4 6-2. The 25-year-old Krejcikova, who will climb to 15th in singles following her maiden Grand Slam singles title on Saturday, will return as the world number one doubles player when the rankings are updated on Monday.
Nearly five years since he was carted off the track at the Rio Games with a torn Achilles, Trayvon Bromell attributes his remarkable comeback to one thing: An act of God. "People want to make it all, you know, luck - No. Science - No. I'm sorry," he told Reuters ahead of the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials that kick off this week. He rolls into Eugene, Oregon, this week with a world-leading time of 9.77 seconds in the men's 100 metres - the only event in which he will contend at the Trials - all but assuring him a spot on Team USA.
And for all their reputation for throwing the ball around with gay abandon, Evans says they are not playing kamikaze rugby. “There’s risk and management,” Evans said. “Certain parts of the game require management. We are in the top three teams for kicking which shows that we are not just running everything. The key thing is that if the opportunity is there you have to be brave enough to take it.” There are plenty of similarities between Harlequins’ approach and that of Bristol who finished the r
