US Open update


Jordan Spieth

Jordan Spieth is using being one of the first out to put some pressure on the rest of the field.

The 21-year-old, who won the Masters earlier on this year, shot four birdies in his opening eight holes to move into the overall lead by a shot on six under.

But, having started on the 10th, he then dropped two shots on the 18th to drop a shot behind the leaders.

On that note, it is time to bid you a Sportsday goodbye and point you in the direction of the live text commentary from the US Open you can follow on the BBC Sport website

right here. Enjoy.

Sussex skipper plays down relegation fears


Sussex captain Ed Joyce says his team should not be worried by relegation fears.

The Hove side have lost five of their last six Division One games and

are fifth in the table, having played a game more than the bottom four.

"We're realistic about where we are," he added. "A lot of it is circumstance and the way it has gone; pitches we've played on, a few tosses and lots of injuries."

Murray survives Queen's scare


Andy Murray was given a stern test by Gilles Muller in their quarter-final at Queen's but has won 3-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4.

England head coach Stuart Lancaster says the three-match tour to Australia next year will be a "massive challenge and one to really look forward to".

The games will be next June and Lancaster added: "We haven't toured Australia since 2010 so for most of our squad it will be their first opportunity to play a senior Test there and I'm sure it will be a great series.

Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika said: "There is no question England are our greatest rivals from the north and this is guaranteed to be a really hard-fought and physical series."

Wolves in the hunt for half-backs

Rugby League

Warrington coach Tony Smith says the Super League side are "scouring the world looking for half-backs" after failing to settle on a first-choice pairing so far this season.

"I don't want to make my half-backs feel bad about it, but we understand that we haven't been consistent enough in those sort of positions this year," he said.

Crawley sign Walton


League Two side Crawley Town have signed midfielder

Simon Walton following his departure from Stevenage.

The 27-year-old scored five goals in 33 appearances for Boro last season and has agreed a two-year contract.

Jockey Ryan Moore secured a modern-day record-breaking ninth winner at Royal Ascot on Aloft in the Queen's Vase.

The 31-year-old could yet break the all-time record of 12 winners set by Fred Archer in 1878.

"I'm very lucky, I get to ride the best horses and that makes a big difference, " said the three-time champion jockey.

"It (the record) is not something you think about, we'll think about rides tomorrow then worry about this."

Glamorgan sign Carter

Glamorgan have signed Nottinghamshire seamer Andy Carter on loan for the second time this season.

Carter took 12 wickets in a month-long spell at the Swalec Stadium at the start of the season and will come into contention for Glamorgan's LV County Championship Division Two home match against Leicestershire, which starts in Cardiff on Monday.

"It's no surprise to me that they have put themselves in contention because there are a lot of good cricketers at the club and it's a very positive dressing room," Carter told the official club website.

The wait goes on

Scottish Premiership

Richard Wilson

BBC Scotland

"It is 22 August before Celtic play away to a team expected to finish in the top places, when they travel to face Dundee United, and it is 12 September - the seventh round of fixtures - before they meet Aberdeen, who challenged at the top of the league for much of the last campaign."

BBC Sport Scotland's Richard Wilson has looked at the Scottish fixture lists, stroked his chin, and

clattered out this piece.

US Open update


Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods opened his second round with a bogey on the 10th but, while he looks set to miss the cut after his opening round 80, he did pick up a birdie on the 12th. It was a rare moment of joy as another bogey on the 14th followed.

Masters champion Jordan Spieth is a man on the move. He has picked up three birdies in his first six holes to move into a share of the lead on five under.

Justin Rose, who won the US Open in 2013, is in the same group as Spieth and has two birdies and a bogey in his first six holes. He's one over for the tournament.

US Open greens criticised


US Open

The greens at the Chambers Bay course being used for the US Open are "as bad as they look", says Sergio Garcia.

The Spaniard was happy with his level-par opening round of 70 but added on Twitter: "A championship of the calibre of the US Open deserves better quality green surfaces."

World number one Rory McIlroy, who hit a two-over 72, said: "They are not the best I have putted on."

Colin Montgomerie, who had a one-under 69, described them as "extremely poor".

Live commentary of the final two rounds are on BBC Radio 5 live on Saturday and Sunday between 22:00 BST and 03:00 BST. Live text updates are available from 1900 BST for every round on the BBC Sport website.

Dunkley admits FA doping breach


Oxford United defender Chey Dunkley has been

reprimanded after admitting breaching the Football Association's anti-doping regulations.

The 23-year-old tested positive for salbutamol after using an inhaler prescribed for his asthma, but a regulatory commission hearing found there was no intention on Dunkley's part to enhance sporting performance.

He will also be subject to target testing for two years.

Moore breaks Royal Ascot record

Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore has broken the post-War record for winners at a single Royal Ascot meeting.

Moore won his ninth race when he rode Aloft to victory in the 17.35 BST race, the Queen's Vase.

Lester Piggott (1965 and 1975) and Pat Eddery (1989) both rode eight winners.

Fred Archer holds the overall record with 12 wins in 1878.

'Mo is the only one people care about'


BBC Radio 5 live

British sprinter-turned-bobsledder Craig Pickering has been speaking about his experiences of the drug testing system.

Mo Farah has today released a statement saying he

has never taken performance-enhancing drugs, after reports that he missed two tests in the 2010-11 season.

"It's not uncommon for athletes to miss tests - athletes shouldn't miss tests but it's built into the system that you can miss two," said Pickering.

"Athletes miss tests, but Mo is the only one people care about. The fact you can miss two shows UKAD accept that it can happen."

Liverpool hopeful over Clyne

Nathaniel Clyne

"Liverpool remain confident of signing Southampton's England right-back Nathaniel Clyne - despite seeing an opening £10m bid rejected.

"Clyne, 24, is earmarked by manager Brendan Rodgers as the replacement for Glen Johnson, who has left Liverpool at the end of his contract, and to provide added squad depth with Jon Flanagan a long-term absentee after knee surgery.

"Southampton were hopeful Clyne would sign a new contract at St Mary's as his current deal runs out next summer, but he now looks destined to join Liverpool's other summer signings James Milner, Danny Ings and former Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan at Anfield.

"Liverpool are yet to make an improved offer but one will certainly arrive for Southampton to consider and it is expected a bid in the region of £15m will bring the move close, with Saints having already signed Portugal defender Cedric Soares from Sporting Lisbon in a deal worth up to £4.7m."

Tsonga forced to miss Nottingham

French Open semi-finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has had to

pull out of next week's Nottingham ATP World Tour event because of an abdominal strain.

The world number 12 lost to eventual winner Stan Wawrinka at Roland Garros earlier this month and has not played since.

His injury means he will have played no grass-court tennis prior to Wimbledon, which begins on 29 June.

Spieth starts with a birdie


Jordan Spieth

Masters champion Jordan Spieth shot 68 in his first round at the US Open, which left him three off the lead.

In his second round, the 21-year-old opens with a birdie at the 10th to close the gap before a par at the 11th. He then missed a short birdie putt at the 12th when his effort caught the edge of the hole.

Lyon to offer Lacazette new deal


Alexandre Lacazette

Lyon are ready to make striker Alexandre Lacazette their highest paid player to keep him at the club.

Lacazette finished last season as the top scorer in Ligue 1 with 27 goals, but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said it would be "a strategical error" to sell the France international.

"Alexandre wishes to be the number one and receive the biggest salary at the club, which is absolutely understandable. He will earn at least four million euros (£2.9m) a year," said Aulas.

Lacazette, France's player of the year, is currently under contract until 2018.

Robson gets tough draw


Laura Robson has drawn the top seed, and world number 41, Daria Gavrilova in the first round of the Eastbourne qualifying competition.

shot an opening round of 80 at the US Open yesterday and the former world number one and 14-time major winner has just got his second round at Chambers Bay in Washington under way.

The early signs are not good as he aims to show he still has some of the old magic.

He puts a shot from the fairway into the rough on a grassy slope, slips as he tries to work a way out and sends his shot to the green way past the hole. He finally opens with a five on the par-four 10th.

The organisers of the Tour de France are threatening to pull out of the world governing body's calendar in 2016, according to Reuters.

The UCI (International Cycling Union) oversees global cycling, but ASO (Amaury Sport Organisation) organise the Tour, which is the biggest cycling event in the world. Sir Bradley Wiggins was the first British winner in 2012.

According to reports, ASO are concerned by a lack of progress in the UCI's reform programme. The UCI had promised a calendar restructure, to prevent races clashing.

The Tour would still go ahead next year, just not as a UCI recognised event.

"Right now he feels like a lion in a cage."

Tower of contention


New Spinnaker Tower design

Portsmouth fans were a little bit miffed a few weeks ago when they learned that the iconic Spinnaker Tower might be painted red - the colour of rivals Southampton.

But they have won a battle for truth and decency, with

the building set to be blue, white and gold, the colours of the Fratton Park side.

It's just as well, can you imagine being a Pompey fan and waking up to see a 50-metre high shrine to your local enemy on the horizon?
