You might want to add cricket, tennis, athletics and squash - by doing so your My Sport area will display the latest articles and videos from those topics, and also relevant information such as latest scores and results.

My Sport also works across devices, so if you set preferences in the app, they will work on the website and vice versa, as long as you are signed in with a BBC account. To set one up, head here - if you've already got a BBC account you're halfway there.
