  4. Tributes to Hamza Ali

    Cricket

    BBC Radio Solent

    Hampshire all-rounder Gareth Berg has called young fast bowler Hamza Ali "100% committed as a bowler and player". 

    Berg captained the seamer, who died aged 20, in a number of games this season.

    "I haven't seen many trialists like him at his age that knew exactly what he wanted to do with the ball," Berg told BBC Radio Solent. 

    "He delivered it 99% of the time in the games I captained. He was always listening to you and soaked it up like a sponge when you gave him any feedback.

    "He was a talented cricketer and I was really hoping good things would come to him."

    .

    Wales are often described as a one-man team. When you consider Gareth Bale scored seven and assisted two of their 11 goals in qualifying for Euro 2016, you can see why there would be such claims.

    But the 26-year-old offered a firm rebuttal on Thursday , saying the brotherly bond in the Wales squad means they are not overly-reliant on their talismanic forward.

  9. 'Every manager wants Defoe'

    Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce on striker Jermain Defoe extending his contract until 2019: "Jermain is one of the greatest goal-scorers in the history of the Premier League and is a player that every manager would want to have in their team."

    Allardyce tells the club's website: "He proved that beyond doubt last season by scoring 15 league goals, he is in fantastic physical condition and we are very pleased that we have been able to extend his stay with us.”

  12. Winning start for France?

    Euro 2016

    .

    National security threats, accusations of racism, sex-tape blackmail plots involving star players, late injuries to key squad members… it is fair to say the build-up to Euro 2016 has not gone exactly to plan for France coach Didier Deschamps.

  20. 'Few steps to go'

    Alistair Magowan

    BBC Sport

    "So no Katherine Grainger or Vicky Thornley in the GB announcement.

    "But performance director Sir David Tanner said its his "confident intention" to get them back in their women's double sculls boat for Rio despite their poor form this season.  "Cryptically, he also said there were a "few steps to go" but added that the decision was only made on the same day as the team announcement, so the fact they were not included was more down to a timing issue after they tested to try and make the women's eight crew on Monday."
