  2. The man who catches marathon cheats

    Now this is an interesting yarn: The man who catches marathon cheats - from his home.

    Katie Shepherd writes: Cindy ran the race of her life, finishing the New York Marathon in just 3 hours 17 minutes and 29 seconds - a lot faster than her pace in previous half-marathon finishes, which each took a little over two hours.

    "Ran my heart out today and left everything on the course. All the training paid off and qualified for the Boston Marathon!" she posted on Instagram, along with a post-race selfie and a photo with the finisher's medal.

    But Cindy's incredible marathon time seemed just a little too incredible to a man sitting at his computer nearly 640 miles away.

    Derek Murphy, a former marathoner and business analyst who lives outside Cincinnati, has made a name for himself exposing marathon cheats on his blog, Marathon Investigation.

  4. Redknapp appointment a shock - McLeish

    Football

    Mcleish and redknapp

    One of Harry Redknapp's predecessors as Birmingham Alex McLeish, who left for for cross-city rivals Aston Villa in 2011, described the appointment as a "shock" but expects Redknapp to secure survival. 

     "I am sure that he will keep them up," said the Scot, 58. "He will keep it real and stir them up for the last three games."

    Redknapp's first match as manager comes at Villa on Sunday.

    "He couldn't get a tougher one to choose," added McLeish. "So it is another big game this weekend coming up and if Harry can win that one, the Birmingham fans will be looking to get him tied down immediately

    Redknapp is due to meet the squad tomorrow before being unveiled as Birmingham's new manager in a press conference at St Andrew's. 

  5. The stats...

    Leicester v Atletico Madrid (19:45 BST)

    • Leicester are the lowest scoring side in the Champions League among the eight teams left in this season's competition (10 goals in nine games). 50% of their goals have come from set-piece.
    • No team has conceded more penalties than Leicester in this season's Champions League (four, only two of which were converted).
    • The Foxes have won all four of their Champions League home games this season (six goals scored, one conceded).
    • They are the first team since Malaga in 2012-13 to reach the quarter-finals on their Champions League debut. They're also the eighth English team to make it to the last eight of the competition, more than any other country.  
  6. Post update

    Leicester v Atletico Madrid (19:45 BST)

    Atletico Madrid have been training at Leicester's King Power Stadium, which is decked out in fan flags ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg tonight.

  8. Can they stay up?

    Brighton promoted to Premier League

    .

    Of the 71 promoted teams to play in the Premier League, 31 have been immediately relegated. But Brighton fans may want to put a positive spin on it - more than half of them stay up and the average finishing position is 15th.

    In their current squad, excluding loan players, only six boast previous Premier League experience - Glenn Murray, Anthony Knockaert, David Stockdale, Steve Sidwell, Shane Duffy and Liam Rosenior.

    But Hughton, who has won 63 of his 123 games in charge on the south coast, has managed in the top flight with Newcastle and Norwich.

    They are also in for a bumper payday, with promotion to the Premier League worth an estimated £170m.

  9. Brighton flying high

  10. How did they do it?

    Murray

    So, what was Brighton's promotion campaign built on?

    • Attacking threat - Glenn Murray (22), Anthony Knockaert (15), Sam Baldock (11) and Tomer Hemed (11) have scored 59 of their 73 goals this season.
    • Home form - The Seagulls have picked up the most Championship points at home with 54, and won 17 of their 22 games there.
    • Unbeaten run - Brighton did not lose in October, November and December, winning 11 of their 15 games during that spell.
    • Tight defence - They have conceded the fewest goals in the Championship (36) with 21 clean sheets.
  11. Seagulls on the up

  13. Bayern seeking to reverse recent trend

    Real Madrid v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)

    Big guns Real Madrid and Bayern Munich meet in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tonight, the 24th European Cup/Champions League fixture between the teams and the 18th under the Champions League era - a record in the history of the tournament.

    In knockout encounters, each side has progressed five times but Bayern have lost eight of their last 10 away games against Real in all competitions, including the last five. 

    An imposing stat for the Germans is that Real have found the net in their last 34 Champions League home games, the longest ever run in the competition. Barcelona were the last team to leave the Bernabeu with a clean sheet in April 2011.

  16. Corrigan captures Coal Carrying crown

    Coal Carrying

    We don't have a graphic for Coal Carrying unfortunately but there is a new world champion and it is Durham farmer Andrew Corrigan, who completed the 1.1-km (1,200-yard) course in Gawthorpe, near Wakefield in a time of four minutes, 31 seconds, with a 50kg (110 pounds) sack on his back. 

    The women's race, in which competitors each carried 20kg (44 pounds), was won by Jen Mustan in four minutes, 30 seconds. 

  17. Real in search of record

    Real Madrid v Bayern Munich (Tuesday, 19:45 BST)

    Bayern Munich v Real Madrid

    Tonight's other Champions League quarter-final is in Spain where the mighty defending champions Real Madrid protect a 2-1 lead against Bayern Munich, who last won the competition n 2013.

    Real have reached the semi-finals in each of the previous six seasons and a seventh in a row would constitute a new record, but they are without Gareth Bale this evening. The former Spurs playmaker suffered an ankle injury in the first leg.

    After several recent European ties have been marred by violence, some 1,800 police officers will be deployed to the streets of the Spanish capital.

    Chris Stanley: Villa 3-1 Tranmere, 1994 LC semi followed by Bozzie penalty heroics. How to make a famous old ground thunder.  

    Anonymous: Without Doubt Torquay travelling up to Molinuex for the second leg of the Sherpa Van Trophy. 2-1 down from the home leg, I think there were 400 of us away fans in a crowd of 24000 but despite Steve Bull, Andy Mutch etc we triumphed 2-0 and had our first day out at Wembley. Rumour had it that Wolves had to cancel their accommodation that they had arrogantly booked in advance for the final!
