    The Gymnastics World Cup will move from Glasgow to London in 2017, with new promoter Barry Hearn promising a "lavish and magnificent" event.

    Team GB Olympians Max Whitlock and Amy Tinkler will be among those competing at London's O2 in April.

    Matchroom chairman Hearn hopes the event will capitalise on the popularity of the sport following Rio 2016 where Britain won seven gymnastics medals.

    Team Sky general manager Dave Brailsford has spoken to the BBC's sports editor Dan Roan after Sir Bradley Wiggins denied trying to gain an "unfair advantage" from being allowed to use a banned steroid.

    Wiggins told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show he took the powerful anti-inflammatory drug triamcinolone for allergies and respiratory problems shortly before the 2011 and 2012 editions of the Tour de France and the 2013 Giro d'Italia.

    He said he sought therapeutic use exemptions (TUEs) to "put himself back on a level playing field".

    TUEs allow the use of banned substances if athletes have genuine medical need.

  5. 'Good results' required for Hamilton

    Lewis Hamilton

    Lewis Hamilton says he is confident he can return to the form he needs to reclaim the championship lead and win his fourth world title this year.

    Before Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix, Hamilton is eight points behind team-mate Nico Rosberg with six races to go.

    The 31-year-old world champion said: "It's going to take some good results to get back in front and stay there.

    "But I've had plenty of those in the past there's no reason to think they won't come back to me again."

    Fellow Mercedes driver Rosberg has won the last three races.

  9. 'FA Cup rounds four & five could move to midweek'

    Football

    The fourth and fifth rounds of the FA Cup could be played in midweek to allow more league football to take place at weekends, says English Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey.

    Speaking at the Soccerex conference in Manchester, Harvey said his organisation "want as much weekend league football as possible".

    He added: "The FA Cup is the key element in this debate. Potentially move rounds four and five to midweek to create space for more weekends."

    On the possibility of a winter break, Harvey added: "Every draft schedule we have looked at leaves Christmas and New Year untouched. We would look to start after the FA Cup third round."

    Dimitri Payet prepares to take a corner for West Ham

    Leading architect Ruben Reddy has said the London Stadium must have its athletics track removed if West Ham are ever to have the kind of atmosphere they want.

    West Ham’s move from Upton Park has suffered a number of problems, with security a main issue.

    Slaven Bilic’s side have already lost three times at the stadium, the latest setback coming against Southampton on Sunday.

    Reddy, who helped build the stadiums for the Sochi Olympics, said: “They will have to change it. You will never get the atmosphere right as it currently is.

    “You shouldn’t keep the athletics track with the notion that some great athletics event is going to return. That is why I am saying that stadiums should not be looked at as multi-use with athletics and football. You can have football and rugby. If you want to keep an athletics track, put a cricket oval in there."

    West Ham have a 99-year lease on the stadium but athletics events have priority from the last Friday in June to the end of July each year under a 50-year agreement. The stadium is owned by E20 Stadium LLP, a joint venture between the London Legacy Development Corporation and Newham Council

    Player, Palmer and Jack Nicklaus were known as the 'big three' of golf in the 1960s and won 34 Major titles between them.

    Although acknowledging "it's a sad day", Player told Radio 5 live's Afternoon Edition: "We've got to rejoice - he had a wonderful life.

    "He and I were friends for 60 years and travelled the world together, we laughed together, we cried together. 

    "He was probably the most patient athlete with people - they loved him and he loved them."

    The Hornets have won their last two matches.

    Mazzarri said: "We have shown that we can fight against anyone, but the real step forward I want to see is how we will behave against a club like Burnley.

    "I haven't been here long and I need to verify the progress of this team, and we will see on Monday night what the progress is."

    Burnley boss Sean Dyche played and managed the Hornets and has no hard feelings about his sacking by the club in 2012.

    He said: "It's well-documented I've always had respect for the club.

    "The situation, the business changed etc etc but I mean every word when I say I had a fantastic time there as player, youth coach, assistant manager and manager."
