Argentina offered to host the whole of the 2021 Copa America on Tuesday, replacing their current co-hosts Colombia, where a wave of civil unrest has rocked the country since late April. The tournament is being held in two countries for the first time in its 105-year history but nationwide protests in Colombia have led to at least 15 deaths. The tournament is scheduled to kick off in Buenos Aires on June 13.
With WADA holding Executive Committee and Foundation Board meetings later this week, dues are likely to be a contentious topic with the U.S. holding back its 2021 payment and WADA threatening to introduce rules to punish nations which do not pay up by finding them non-compliant.

England cricket fans' hopes of getting to the Ashes will be all but wiped out when Australian cricket authorities confirm fixtures on Tuesday night. Ministers overseeing the country's Covid-19 border closure are understood to have played down the possibility of exemptions for England fans in the coming months. Cricket Australia is expected to confirm in a statement that its hands are tied by Government rules, which also leave the travelling plans of English media in doubt. Tour operators appear to have given up hope of taking supporters over for the eagerly-awaited Test series. Ahead of the fixture announcement, Sara Malin, a director at travel firm International Cricket Tours, wrote in a message to regular England travellers: "Sadly supporter bookings won't be available unless Australia opens borders, but we will be taking bookings for West Indies next month." Most Australians have been effectively banned from leaving since last March. Exemption passes for those wanting to travel there are signed off only under strict conditions, with new arrivals quarantining for 14 days on arrival. Australians are divided on the nation leaders maintaining the border closure even as the country advances its vaccine rollout. Liberal Party MPs Dave Sharma, Tim Wilson and Jason Falinski have called for borders to open faster than the mid-2022 budget target, saying the vaccination rollout should allow an easing of restrictions. However, this week the prime minister Scott Morrison has said Australians understand why the Government is taking a “cautious approach”. England are among countless teams who face lingering uncertainty over away travel despite Covid regulations easing in the UK. The Lions tour will be played behind closed doors, and Wales fans have been told not to travel to Baku or Rome for the nation's Euro 2021 fixtures.
Lee Westwood is currently on the outside looking in with regards to qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics but the Englishman said on Tuesday he has already withdrawn his name from consideration due to family commitments and his playing schedule.

World Rugby have announced the latest innovation in rugby union's bid to monitor and reduce the amount of concussions in the game, with eye-tracking technology now being trialled in the southern hemisphere's Super Rugby Trans-Tasman. Concussions throughout the tournament are being monitored using eye-tracking technology, World Rugby announced on Tuesday. A test using Virtual Reality was used for the first time during the opening round of the Super Rugby Trans-Tasman last weekend, with the NeuroFlex® VR test measuring oculomotor functions (eye movements) to generate an accurate, quantitative and metrics-based report, which provides objective data for medical personnel to diagnose and manage concussions. Currently used alongside the Head Injury Assessment protocols, the trial will determine whether the VR test can improve the accuracy of HIAs in the future. HIAs currently operate at 90 per cent accuracy in elite competitions. Given that scientific studies have demonstrated that oculomotor functions are altered at the time of or shortly after a concussion, the VR test could further improve rugby’s approach to brain health. The use of eye-tracking technology is the latest move by World Rugby to increase surveillance around possible head injuries, with a study currently ongoing in the community game in New Zealand featuring 700 participants using specially-designed mouthguards to monitor head impacts.
The game was due to be played at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul but was moved to the Estadio de Dragao in Porto after Turkey was added to the British government's red list due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"You have to have discipline, perseverance and if you have perseverance you will achieve your dreams," she adds with a smile.
Alexander-Arnold has displayed his best form of the season over the last couple of months.
Ollie Robinson and James Bracey have been called up to an England Test squad for the first time. Sussex seamer Robinson and Gloucestershire wicket-keeper/batsman Bracey are part of a 15-man squad for the two Tests against New Zealand named by Chris Silverwood, his first since taking charge of selection following the removal of Ed Smith. Silverwood spotted potential in both players last year when they shadowed England as part of expanded squads required by Covid protocols. Now both are fully-fledged members of the squad after good starts to the County season and could make their debuts when the Test series starts at Lord’s on June 2, the first time England will have played in front of a crowd at home since the end of the 2019 Ashes. Robinson is likely to bat at eight and fill the void left by Chris Woakes, who has been given a break after just leaving 10 days hotel quarantine following his return from the IPL. Bracey is averaging 53 this summer but his route into the top six is a little uncertain and will probably require Dom Sibley to fail to regain fitness after a broken finger. Sibley was filmed batting in the nets at Edgbaston on Tuesday. Craig Overton has been recalled to the squad after a strong start to the season. Only Simon Harmer has taken more wickets than Robinson (32) and Overton (29) this summer so far. Silverwood has kept faith with the top order that struggled in India, setting aside batting failures in extraordinary conditions. There is a recall for Rory Burns, while Zak Crawley, Dan Lawrence and Ollie Pope have all shown differing levels of form in the Championship so far. Pope has been prolific for Surrey, and Lawrence made his first hundred of the season last week, while Crawley has just made 85 and 90 in his last three innings. England have rested their IPL contingent - Woakes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow and Sam Curran. It means Ben Foakes will play a home Test for the first time. Jofra Archer will see a specialist about his elbow this week while Ben Stokes is currently out until July with a broken finger. “James Bracey and Ollie Robinson deserve their call ups to the Test squad. Having spent all winter and last summer in the company of our established Test players, they have immersed themselves in preparing and understanding what it takes to play at this level. The environment and culture will be something they are used to, and should they be in a position to make their Test debuts, they will be ready to showcase their skills,” said Silverwood.

A race-winning Formula One McLaren driven by Lewis Hamilton in 2010 will be put up for auction at the British Grand Prix in July as it does laps of the Silverstone circuit. Seven-times world champion Hamilton, now at Mercedes, is Formula One's most successful driver of all time with a record 100 pole positions and 98 wins. "It's an amazing opportunity to have a piece of his story," Felix Archer, a car specialist for auctioneers and Formula One partners RM Sotheby's, told Reuters at a viewing on Tuesday.
