    Motherwell have been found guilty of a number of rule breaches following an investigation into crowd issues during and after their play-off victory over Rangers at Fir Park.

    Their potential punishment for the incidents on 31 May, 2015, will not be decided for 18 months.

    In the meantime the club will have to implement a range of recommendations, including identifying and acting against fans who invaded the pitch after the game, with their response dictating the possible sanctions.

    Football

    The AFP news agency is reporting that Bundesliga club Hanover 96 has suspended three youth team players who police say were intending to rob a gambling hall in the north German city.

    Judy Murray

    Judy Murray has suggested she will be cutting down her involvement in tennis to spend more time with her family - including her new grandchild.

    "As you get older, you realise that life is short and so I've decided that it's time for me to slow down," Fed Cup coach Murray told Hello! magazine.

    "I've been away so much that I've missed out on family occasions and children, such as my 13-year-old nieces Elsa and Cora, growing up, and I'm actually looking forward to cutting back on my work and spending more time with my parents, and yes, the new baby."

    Her son, Andy, and wife Kim Sears are expecting their first child.

    Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says "we have to improve everything" after his side's late 2-1 win over Granada.

    Luka Modric's fantastic 85th-minute strike ensured a fourth win in Zidane's first five games as head coach.

    "We are going to try to improve everything - at the back and in attack because we need to score more goals," Zidane said.

  10. Year of the underdog

    Football

    Giroud

    To celebrate Leicester City's achievement we are taking a look at four underdogs who upset the odds to secure league titles.  

    Montpellier, 2011-12: Monaco, St Etienne and Bordeaux had won the French title as promoted clubs but Montpellier's Ligue 1 triumph in 2012 eclipsed them after the landscape changed following heavy investment at Paris St Germain.

    The Qatari takeover of the club in 2011 saw them sign Javier Pastore, Thiago Motta and Alex that summer but Montpellier shocked the newly rich side, winning the title by three points.

    They had finished 2010-11 a lowly 14th - the same spot Leicester ended last season - and just three points above the relegation zone.

    Olivier Giroud's 21 goals helped Montpellier to the top before he joined Arsenal in 2012.

  11. Long shot

    Football

    Valencia - who have confirmed Gary Neville is staying as manager - are 5,000-1 to overturn Barcelona's seven-goal advantage in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final on Wednesday.

    Then again, in August Leicester were 5,000-1 to win the Premier League title ...

  13. 'Less competitive'

    Formula 1

    g

    Plans to remove restrictions on engine development will make Formula 1 less competitive, says Red Bull design chief Adrian Newey.

    The move, scheduled for 2017, is aimed at producing a convergence of engine performance after two seasons of domination by Mercedes.

    But Newey said it will lead to a "spending frenzy" and will mean "the gaps get bigger not smaller." He described notions that performance would equalise as "quaint".

  14. Barnsley 'can go on without Johnson'

    League One

    Barnsley coach Paul Heckingbottom has praised the resolve shown by the team following the departure of former boss Lee Johnson.

    He left for Bristol City on Saturday, but the Yorkshire club beat Bury 3-0 the following day, their seventh successive league victory.

    "The players deserve the credit after what's been a tough week for them," said Heckingbottom, who is in joint caretaker charge with Tommy Wright. "Now it's about moving forwards and carrying on as normal."

  15. PSG can go unbeaten

    Football

    Thiago Silva

    Paris St-Germain can become the first team to go through a Ligue 1 season unbeaten, says captain Thiago Silva.

    Les Parisiens are closing in on a fourth consecutive title after beating rivals Marseille 2-1 to go 24 points clear at the top.

    Laurent Blanc's side, who have not lost in 34 Ligue 1 games, are 13 matches away from an unbeaten league campaign.

    "I think if we continue like this, we can go through the entire season without loss," Silva said. "That's not an objective, but if we can do it, it will be magnificent."

    As for beaten Scotland, their players 'need a rocket' from coach Vern Cotter after their eighth straight Six Nations defeat.

    "I think these guys need a rocket," Guscott told the BBC Six Nations Forum."Vern probably won't give them one, but I thought he was very soft on them.

    "Maybe he blames himself, maybe he didn't get the message across."
