    BBC Sports news correspondent

    Marinakis spelt out his vision for Nottingham Forest earlier:

    • To return "stability" to a club with "huge potential" which "belongs to the elite of the Premier League" Will not make rash pledges, saying "I never give promises - I deliver"
    • Backs Mark Warburton and says he will work within EFL financial rules to support him in the transfer market
    • Will formulate a 'fans advisory body' and 'youth council' with a representative attending board meetings
    • Promises ticket price reductions to reward fan loyalty

  9. More on the Forest takeover...

    Football

    Nottingham Forest

    Two-time European Cup winners Forest only escaped relegation to England's third tier on goal difference with a win on the final day of the season.

    The new owner was previously accused of being involved in the bombing of a referee's bakery but faced no action.

    Marinakis, who is heading a consortium with Greek businessman Socrates Kominakis, denies all the claims and has not faced any charges. He is waiting to find out whether a remaining case against him will proceed, but says: "I have nothing to be afraid of and to worry about as I have done nothing wrong."

    The EFL has approved the deal after reviewing the business plan and applying the owners' and directors' test. They saw no reason to disqualify the prospective owners under the test. The EFL also asked Uefa for its views on Marianakis' ownership of Olympiakos and received a positive response.

    Evangelos Marinakis buys Nottingham Forest with EFL approval

    Nottingham Forest have been bought by Greek shipping magnate Evangelos Marinakis after his takeover was passed by the English Football League (EFL).

    The businessman and Olympiakos owner is facing accusations of match-fixing in Greece but has passed the EFL's owners' and directors' test.

    Marinakis' buyout brings to an end Fawaz Al Hasawi's five-year reign in charge of the Championship club.

    A previous takeover by a United States consortium fell through in January.

    In an exclusive interview with BBC Sport, Marinakis said that allegations he is involved in a "criminal organisation" were invented by "jealous" opponents to "destroy" his success with the Greek champions.

  12. Get Involved - Your views on the FA's diving ban

    #bbcsportsday or text 81111

    Dietrich Jeffreys: The ban should continue to double up for every repeat offence at the very least.

    Shane Daly: It's about time we have this ban. Allardyce is talking nonsense. Every club has players that dive.

    Cactus Kash: Long overdue. I have always said that the only way to try and stamp out cheating is to give retrospective bans for diving.

  13. Marshall goes pro - looks like she has challengers already...

    Boxing

    Savannah Marshall

    British two-time Olympian Savannah Marshall has turned professional and will be promoted by Floyd Mayweather.

    Marshall became the first British woman to win World Championship gold when she took the 75kg title in 2012.

    She appeared at London 2012 and Rio 2016, and becomes one of three female boxers at Mayweather Promotions.

    The 25-year-old, who also won gold at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, is the only woman to beat two-time Olympic champion Claressa Shields.

    American Shields, 22, has two wins from two fights since turning pro.

    Writing 13 days before Marshall officially joined the paid ranks, she tweeted: "Yes, yes, yes. Savannah Marshall has turned pro! The amateur brackets can't save her."

    The 10-1 shot Permian, trained by Mark Johnston and ridden by jockey Franny Norton, won today's Dante Stakes at York to earn a place in next month's Derby.

    The colt, who beat Benbatl by three quarters of a length, isn't currently entered in the Epsom Classic, but can be added to the line-up at a cost of £85,000.
