    Andy Murray

    World number one Andy Murray will play Australia's Bernard Tomic in the second round of the Barcelona Open on Wednesday.

    The Briton, 29, accepted a late wild card for Barcelona after his third-round defeat by Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas in Monte Carlo on Thursday.

    It will give top seed Murray more match time on clay before the French Open, which begins on 28 May.

    British number two Kyle Edmund is out of the Barcelona Open after losing 6-1 6-4 to Austria's Dominic Thiem.

  7. Team news

    Wolves v Huddersfield (19:45 BST)

    Wolves forward Helder Costa (ankle) could return to the team after missing the last five games. Defender Matt Doherty is doubtful after going off injured in the 0-0 draw with Blackburn on Saturday.

    Huddersfield, who will guarantee their Championship play-off spot with a win, could welcome back striker Elias Kachunga after he missed Saturday's defeat by Fulham through illness. Forward Izzy Brown (hamstring) is likely to feature from the bench again, as he did on Saturday.

    Gwyn Jones: Won in a matchplay as a Junior and watching my opponent crumble on the 17th & 18th to let me win. I stayed solid and simple.

    Matthew Jarvis: When the school headmaster blew his whistle right next to me to signal the end of lunchtime, precisely as I hoofed the ball 50yrds. And time stood still as we both watched it smash the canteen window. Explains why the food had a leathery texture.

    Luke Parsons: Scoring a bicycle kick down the local park, then after the game all my mates were trying to recreate it but couldn't. I've never hit a ball cleaner before or since.  

  9. Hull win Niasse appeal

    Football

    Good news for Hull City fans. Forward Oumar Niasse, sent off in their 2-0 win over Watford on Saturday, has had his red card overturned.

    He would have served a three-game ban if it hadn't been overturned.

  11. Team news

    Chelsea v Southampton (19:45 BST)

    Chelsea captain Gary Cahill could be involved after he missed the FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham with gastroenteritis. Head coach Antonio Conte is also likely to recall Diego Costa and Eden Hazard after leaving them out of the starting line-up against Spurs.

    Southampton midfielder Oriel Romeu is available to face his former side after completing a two-match ban. Sam McQueen is set to miss the fixture because of a minor groin strain. Long-term absentees Matt Targett and Charlie Austin will return to training later this week.

  12. McGregor goal 'career highlight'

    Football

    Celtic's Callum McGregor

    Celtic's Callum McGregor says his goal in the Scottish Cup win against Rangers was one of the high points of his career.

    "Technically and tactically, it has been a real learning curve for everybody in the squad," he said.

    "The manager has been praising me highly over the past few weeks.

    "It was great to go out, play like that and get a goal on a big occasion."

  13. 'A huge game for Chelsea, but a slippery one'

    Chelsea v Southampton (19:45 BST)

    Conte

    This is huge. If Chelsea follow up their FA Cup semi-final win with an emphatic victory they'll hold their nerve and land the title.

    But this is a slippery one. They've found Southampton troublesome at home and the Saints have had 10 days to prepare.

    A defeat for the league leaders will open the door for Spurs.

    Chelsea were far too open in the thrilling semi-final. They also haven't gone this long without a league clean sheet in nearly 21 years.

    Southampton may not have beaten a current top-six side all season but they've looked dangerous away recently. Tricky this for the leaders!

    Duncan: Cycling 70 miles after being diagnosed with rare condition that reduces my airways to a third of normal size.

    Matthew Mand: Completed my first ever triathlon on Sunday and managed to do it without passing out and needing medical attention.

    Bunty Wilkinson: I was knocked over on the first bend of an 800m heat, got trampled on and was a good 80 metres behind the pack. Battered and bleeding, I chased them down and came into the final straight, where I secured second place and a place in the final later that day. I didn't win that though...second again.

    So if you're 'of a certain age' - or know someone who is and could benefit from a bit more movement - why not take a look at our Get Inspired guides to find something for them to get moving?

    That's what Phil Neville is hoping for. He's shared this photo of what he thinks Manchester United's starting XI will be next season.

  19. Relegated? Nope, not us

    Football

    Swindon

    When Swindon Town lost 2-1 to Scunthorpe United in League One at the weekend, it was their 23rd defeat of the season and confirmed their relegation to League Two.

    Town fans were raging after the game, not only because their drop was confirmed, but also because the club seemed to ignore the fact that they’d just been relegated.

    Only 48 hours after the final whistle at the County Ground was the official match report updated with the dreaded r-word.

    Maybe they hoped nobody would notice and they could come back to League One next season?

    Here are more tales of people who struggled to come to terms with defeat.

  20. 'Liverpool's loss, Spurs' gain'

    Crystal Palace v Tottenham (Wednesday, 20:00 BST)

    Dele Alli

    Here's more from Sam Allardyce before Wednesday's game against Spurs:

    "I'm good friends with (former MK Dons boss) Karl Robinson and his words are that Dele Alli is the best he's ever seen. Liverpool's loss is, Spurs' gain.  

    "Developing players in this country has become one of the hardest jobs clubs face. It is hard to find the Allis of this world sadly.  

    "Son, Kane and Alli have been in such good goalscoring form we need to master that side of their game."
