  3. Get Involved - times you've been embarrassed in sport


    Darron Cullen: I was once asked to lend a latecomer my boots as I warmed up as sub, 60 mins into a school rugby match. Boots and I went home!

    Nick: Rugby in school. Big lad breaks through halfway line, I'm at full-back. Jump on him and he carries me all the way for a try. 

    Jamie Williams: Intra-school cricket match - out early Lbw for 0. Reduced to 10 batters due to injury so came in as no11, run-out for a duck.

  13. Carroll finally listens to advice

    West Ham striker Andy Carroll says he has finally reined in his combative style of play in training in a bid to stay fit - because he was told to by fiancee Billi Mucklow.

    "My missus got on my case," he said after scoring twice in their friendly with Juventus following an injury-free pre-season. 

    "It started at home. When she set the ball rolling it was like 'oh yeah, I've got to listen'. 

    "And obviously it's worked. There a lot of people who have tried to drill it into my head for three or four years now and I haven't really listened. 

    "You know, take it easy in training, because for my second goal I took out about four players, even my own players - and in training I do that as well, so that's not very good for me or for our players. So I just have to listen to people and take it easy."

  20. Bristol City want at least £10m for Kodjia

    Bristol City will not sell Ivory Coast forward Jonathan Kodjia for less than £10m - and would not even sell him to a Championship club for that fee, says owner Steve Lansdown.

    The 26-year-old joined the club for about £2m last summer and scored 20 goals in 48 games in 2015-16.

    "It would have to be a mega price to prise him away and it would have to be a Premier League side," Lansdown told BBC Radio Bristol. "People have talked about five or six million - no chance.

    "If it's not £10 million-plus, we're not even looking at it. If it's £10 million-plus from a Championship club, we're still not looking at it."
