  3. Afellay returns to Stoke


    Stoke midfielder Ibrahim Afellay has returned to the club as he continues his recovery from injury.

    The 30-year-old Dutch international has been out after sustaining knee ligament damage in training in April and was given permission to work on his rehab away from the Potteries.

    “He’s not a guy that puts on too much weight anyway, but he’s come back and looks in great condition,” manager Mark Hughes told the club website."He’s clearly been working very, very hard since the injury and the next step is to re-integrate him back into the group and get him back onto the field of play again."

    Which players deserve iconic status at your club and why?

    Dan Holman: Rare to recognise iconic status while still playing but Troy Deeney is Mr. Watford. Deserves England recognition.

    Michael Lewis: For Sunderland it is Niall Quinn. Great player, and the chairman who oversaw promotion to the Premier. Could do with him back now.

    James Wilson: I'd say Coutinho for Liverpool. Been a gem for three seasons now and has got progressively better.

  17. 'Can't understand how tests were missed' - Glover

    Britain's rowing double Olympic gold medallist Helen Glover has expressed her frustration at the "serious failings" identified in the Rio Olympics anti-doping methods. 

    An independent observers report found that up to 50% of tests were aborted on some days and little to no in-competition blood testing was conducted in "higher-risk sports".

    "As a clean athlete you want every single athlete to be held up under strict scrutiny," the three-time world champion told BBC Radio 5 live.

    “I can’t understand how these tests were missed, because in the Olympic Village it’s really hard not to know where people are."

  18. Out of competition testing too rare - McColgan


    Eilish McColgan

    British 5,000m runner Eilish McColgan says more out-of-competition anti-doping tests are needed to catch cheats.

    McColgan was speaking to BBC Radio 5 live following the revelation that of the 11,470 athletes competing at the Rio Olympics, 4,125 had no record of any testing in 2016.

    “When you’re testing at the Olympic Games, people have probably already come off what they’ve been taking because they know at around championships you’re going to get tested” she said.

    “The problem lies months and months before. Out of competition testing is really rare. I think Wada needs to knuckle down and start testing a bit more."
