Briton James Ellington is hoping to return to training at the end of the year following the motorbike crash that almost killed him.

The 31-year-old 100m and 200m sprinter suffered broken legs and a broken pelvis.  

His fellow athlete Nigel Levine, who was riding the motorbike, was also badly injured. 

He told The Guardian: "I want to be back running on the track next year. I want to be in winter training by December.

"If you genuinely believe, then within reason you can do pretty much anything. If there aren't any residual bad injuries, I've no doubt I'll come back. My genetics and cells haven't changed. I will heal. I will get strong again."

Another ex-football chief banned

Former Guatemalan football chief Brayan Jimenez has been banned from the sport for life for offences which included "bribery and corruption", Fifa's ethics committee said on Monday.

Jimenez - a former member of a Fifa committee for fair play and social responsibility - was among several officials who were indicted in the United States in 2015, as world football's governing body was investigated by both US and Swiss authorities on allegations of corruption.

Johanna Konta has withdrawn from the Charleston Open as the clay-court season gets under way this week.

The 25-year-old would have been the highest-ranked player in the field after overtaking American top seed Madison Keys in Monday's standings.  

The 25-year-old has just two clay-court wins to her name, outside qualifying, on the WTA Tour and lost in the first round in Madrid, Stuttgart and the French Open last year. 

"I’m very sorry to have withdrawn from Charleston, this is a great tournament and I was really looking forward to taking part," said Konta.

"I was battling a slight shoulder injury and sickness during Miami which has taken hold since the end of the tournament."

Recap: Watch teary Thompson's terrible tale

LPGA: Lexi Thompson loses out after controversial TV replay

American Lexi Thompson receives a four-stroke penalty while leading the final round of the first major of the season - and then loses the play-off to So Yeon Ryu - after a TV replay showed her incorrectly replacing a ball.

Thompson was leading the ANA Inspiration by two shots when told of the penalty after her 12th hole.

Thompson appeared to put a marker at the side of her ball on the 17th green before lifting it and replacing in front of the marker prior to a putt of less than two feet.

The LPGA said she "breached Rule 20-7c (playing from wrong place), and received a two-stroke penalty. She incurred an additional two-stroke penalty under Rule 6-6d for returning an incorrect scorecard in round three."

Her five-under-par third-round 67 was changed to a 71.

Watch: Moyes makes remarks & his apology


David Moyes 'deeply regrets' slap remark comments

BreakingFA to contact Moyes over comments to BBC reporter

Breaking: The FA to write to David Moyes to ask for his observations following his "slap" comments to a reporter.

Earlier, Sunderland boss David Moyes said he "deeply regretted" telling a BBC reporter she might "get a slap".

After a draw with Burnley on 18 March, Moyes was asked by Vicki Sparks if the presence of owner Ellis Short put extra pressure on him.

He said "no" but, after the interview, added Sparks "might get a slap even though you're a woman" and told her to be "careful" next time she visited.

"It was in the heat of the moment," said Moyes.

FA council backs reform proposals

The Football Association council votes to unanimously support the board's governance reform proposals at the annual general meeting on 18 May. 

The key reforms:

  • A reduction in the size of the board from 12 members to 10, with three members each from the amateur and professional game, two independents and the FA's chairman and chief executive.
  • Three of those board positions will be held by women from 2018.
  • Eleven new members will be added to the FA council to boost representation for ethnic minorities, the disabled community, fans groups and women's football
  • All council members must be active in the organisations they are elected or nominated to represent, ending the appointment of any new life or senior vice-presidents, with existing life or senior vice-presidents losing their voting rights
  • A maximum of three three-year terms for any member of the board or council.

'Belief is the most important thing in football'

Mauricio Pochettino has played down Tottenham's title hopes, but says nothing is impossible.

Spurs are seven points behind leaders Chelsea with nine games left to play.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's game at Swansea, Pochettino said:

"We reduced the gap by three points but it's still a big gap, seven is a massive difference.

"In football all can happen. That's a good reason for all - belief is the most important thing in football - not only quality, running or being strong. Belief, faith and fight. Nothing is impossible in football and that is our idea, our philosophy."

Ex-England striker's Match of the Day 2 analysis

Conte Guardiola

When you are chasing the title and you lose at home,  like Chelsea did on Saturday,  then you want the chance to respond straight away and prove it was a blip.

Blues boss Antonio Conte will want a reaction from his side when they play Manchester City on Wednesday and there is probably no better opposition for them to go out and show everyone that they are back on track.

It is a huge game for City as well, but not in terms of them catching the leaders - I would be amazed if Pep Guardiola's side won the title now.

I don't think City's top-four place is in serious danger despite three successive draws but, because of how much they have spent and who their manager is, they simply have to qualify for next season's Champions League. They cannot really afford to lose.

"If she ever sees him, I'll unleash her on him"

Don't mess with Barnsley manager Paul Heckingbottom's daughter.

Sheffield Wednesday's Sam Winnall ran to the halfway line to celebrate in front of Tykes fans after scoring against his former club in the 1-1 draw on Saturday.

"I didn't see it, but it upset my little girl, she was fuming with him. If she ever sees him, I'll unleash her on him," 39-year-old Heckingbottom told BBC Radio Sheffield.

He received a frosty reception from some Barnsley supporters, who disrupted the start of the game by throwing a Peppa Pig soft toy at the striker.

Is the spirit of Cantona inside Carvalhal?


Perhaps the fact the Owls dropped out of the Championship play-off positions after a 1-1 draw at Barnsley has hit him harder than we thought.

The Sheffield Wednesday boss is right about potatoes though.

More from Southampton boss Claude Puel:

"Crystal Palace are a team big in confidence. They have good physical, technical players. It is a strong team and we need to find the creativity because we know they go fast. 

Yohan [Cabaye] is a good player. He can play very well with this team and can work for the team. He is at a good level in this moment and we can see the real level of him. 

We respect this team but I prefer all my players. We have all the qualities and we have a lot of respect for this team but it is important to think about our play. We lacked intensity against Bournemouth and it is important to find a solution."

Ex-Everton stalwart Tony Hibbert has a place in the heart of Toffees fans having played for them for 16 seasons.

However, he'll have to go some way to making a similar impression on the fans of Skelmerdsale amateur side Hares, who he recently joined.

The Lancashire outfit were on a nine-match winning sequence, which included a 21-0 victory.

However, they lost 1-0 to rivals Clay Brow in the 36-year-old's first game for the club.

Oh dear.

It might be stating the obvious, but naming England's Euro 2017 squad early has gone down well with the 23 players Mark Sampson has selected.

Manchester City defender Lucy Bronze says she is sympathetic to those who've missed out with the Spring Series season still to come but has questioned how many big games there will be which will emulate the Euros.

She also denies there will be complacency among the squad now they know their places are secure.

She says: "If you get complacent between now and the Euros, you won't play. Even I couldn't tell you England's starting XI.

"Mark likes to pick specific people for specific games and if you become complacent in the squad, you're knocking your chances of playing."

It appears that Harry Winks' stellar season has come to an abrupt end.

The English 21-year-old midfielder was taken off on a stretcher in the first half of Spurs' 2-0 win at Burnley after injuring his ankle when he fell into the dugout.

In the build-up to Wednesday's match against Swansea, Pochettino said: "It will be difficult for him to play again this season.

"He has done scans and after that we will see what the real problem is. We hope it is no big issue but he twisted his ankle and now we need to see what happened. We need to see the results of the scan and then to start his recovery."

West Brom boss Tony Pulis says any possible bid for Troy Deeney is not likely to succeed.

Leicester had three bids rejected by Watford last summer - the third rising to £25m - before Deeney signed a five-year contract at Vicarage Road last July.

Watford manager Walter Mazzarri has dismissed reports of West Brom's interest. 

Pulis said:  "I don't think they'd want to sell him anyway.

"I've got a lot of time for Troy, he's come through the lower leagues and it's brilliant to see him in the Premier League. But he's a Watford player, and I'll show Watford respect.

"He didn't play on Saturday (a 1-0 win over Sunderland) and they won and played very well. He has been a big influence at that football club and he has been a talisman over the last few years."

Leicester are yet to lose since sacking Claudio Ranieri. Here's more from Craig Shakespeare:

"We strive to win every game and the next game is Sunderland. Last time was a close game and I expect it to be close tomorrow.

“They’re dangerous opposition. Any team with Defoe in it is. We have to be aware of his goal threat and respect our opposition.

“Whether we’re playing a team at the bottom or the top, our goal is the same and that’s to earn three points.

“The team have grown in stature and confidence in the last few games, and Wilfred Ndidi has benefitted from that. Strikers thrive on confidence. Jamie Vardy scored against Liverpool and he hasn’t looked back since.

“Demarai Gray has had to be patient and he took his opportunity really well on Saturday."
