Brazilian Charles Oliveira mounted a superb comeback to score a second-round knockout victory over American Michael Chandler to win the UFC lightweight title in the main event of UFC 262 in Houston, Texas on Saturday. Fighting for the title left vacant by the retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov last October, Oliveira escaped an early guillotine choke attempt and took Chandler's back, but the 35-year-old former Bellator champion was able to escape and land a string of powerful punches to leave Oliveria hanging on at the end of the first frame. He collected himself in the break and came out strong again, dropping Chandler with a sweet left hook and following up with powerful strikes to force referee Dan Miragliotta to call a halt to the contest 19 seconds into the second round.

Bryant's widow Vanessa, who started dating Kobe when she was 17, offered an acceptance on his behalf as presenter Michael Jordan stood nearby.

Foxes never quit. And there was no way that Kasper Schmeichel was not going to get his hands on the FA Cup. It was a world-class goal that won them the trophy but it was a world-class save that ensured they did. When Youri Tielemans’ struck such a wonderful shot into the Chelsea net it felt nothing would surpass it. It had to be the story of Leicester’s first FA Cup win in their 137-history. But that was before Schmeichel’s save. It is not that he has been in the shadow of his illustrious goalkeeping father, Peter, but if ever he was then he certainly is no more. Schmeichel’s stop from Mason Mount will go down as one of the greatest ever made in an FA Cup Final. And that is no exaggeration. You only had to look at Mount’s face to realise how remarkable it was. The ball was crossed into the Leicester penalty area by Reece James with Wes Morgan, under pressure, winning the header only for it to fall to Mount who struck it first-time on the volley as it dropped. It was fierce; it even went through the legs of Wesley Fofana as he desperately tried to block. Just how much of it did Schmeichel really see? It did not matter as he fully extended to his left to push the ball away one-handed for a corner. Mount held his head. He was not the only one. So did Leicester’s James Maddison because he, like the rest of us, believed the shot would beat Schmeichel. But the Leicester captain was having none of it. Mount’s face said it all. He looked simply stunned; disbelieving. It did not take a mind-reader. How did that not go in? The England international could not have struck it sweeter and yet Leicester were still ahead.
Youri Tielemans’ second-half goal won the FA Cup for Leicester.
The Hammers were reliant on an 87th-minute equaliser from substitute Said Benrahma to salvage a point on the south coast.
Leicester and their fans celebrated their FA Cup win in style.
In the latest setback of a miserable season, Andy Murray has dropped his plans to participate in the French Open — which starts a fortnight today — after experiencing a recurrence of groin pain while training in Rome. His intention now is to make an early start in his grass-court preparation in order to be as ready as possible for Queen’s and Wimbledon — the two most productive tournaments of his career. Clearly, he will first have to overcome this lingering and mysterious groin problem, which first surfaced just before the Miami Open in March. Murray travelled out to Rome a week ago to test himself in a series of practice sessions with leading players. He is understood to have taken Novak Djokovic to a tie-break in their unofficial set last Sunday, and also made a late entry into the doubles event as an alternate, playing alongside Liam Broady. Together, they showed strength of character to come back and eliminate Luke Saville and Max Purcell in the first round. But after going out in the second round to Kevin Kravietz and Horia Tecau, Murray was equivocal during an interview with the Press Association. “Today didn't feel that great on the court,” he said. “I didn't play that well in comparison to yesterday.” The original intention had been to enter one of the two ATP 250 events next week, either in Geneva or Lyon, but that idea has been dropped. Clay has always been a difficult surface for Murray, whereas grass is his preferred environment, and he will no doubt be trying to convince himself that this last-minute rescheduling could work in his favour. The last time he made a late withdrawal from the French Open was in 2013, after a bout of back trouble in Rome. He wound up winning his first Wimbledon a month later. Yet the reality of this latest unfortunate development is that Murray has now appeared in only four majors since he first dropped off the tour in 2017, on account of his arthritic right hip. He has won just two grand-slam matches in that time, both at the US Open. Since having that joint “resurfaced” in January 2019 — which meant the insertion of a metal rod in the top of the femur, which slots into a metal socket in his pelvis — Murray has been determined to prove that he can become the first singles player to compete successfully with a bionic hip. (Bob Bryan was able to extend his career substantially in the doubles arena, which is significantly less physically demanding.) But the evidence is beginning to suggest that this may be an impossible dream, even if Murray has had some terrible luck along the way. He will certainly be ruing the Covid-19 infection he suffered while feeling in otherwise strong physical shape in January, which kept him out of the Australian Open. Every time he misses a major tournament, he must wonder if he will ever play there again.
