On this day...

1946: Manchester United great George Best was born in Belfast.

Best spent 11 years at the Old Trafford club with perhaps his crowing moment coming in the European Cup final in 1968, where Best scored United's second goal in a 4-1 extra-time victory over Benfica at Wembley. He was also voted European Footballer of the Year later that year.

He died in 2005 after a long battle with alcohol addiction.

Swansea City have released eight players including goalkeeper Gerhard Tremmel and Marvin Emnes.

Tremmel, 38, who joined the Swans from RB Salzburg in August 2010, made 52 senior appearances for the Welsh club, but saw action last season confined to the Football League Trophy.

Emnes had two loan spells before signing a deal in 2014. He made just nine Premier League starts for Swansea.

He scored four goals in 37 games on loan at Blackburn last season.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff says this year's intense battle with Ferrari has revived his love for Formula 1.

Mercedes dominated F1 from 2014-16 but Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel leads Lewis Hamilton by six points after five races of this season's championship.

Wolff said: "The last three years were extraordinary. But this season I have rediscovered why I love the sport.

"I love the intense competition. It means you won't be winning easily - you'll have a fierce fight."

Everton Ladies
The FA

Everton Ladies paid tribute to their former youth player Zoe Tynan as they collected the Women's Super League Two Spring Series trophy on Saturday.

Former England Under-19 midfielder Tynan died in August aged 18.

After sealing top spot in WSL 2 on what would have been her 19th birthday, Everton wore number 19 'Tynan' shirts, bearing the message: "For you Zoe."

On this day...

2011: Manager Carlo Ancelotti was sacked by Chelsea shortly after their season-ending 1-0 defeat at Everton.

Only twelve months earlier, the Italian completed a Premier League and FA Cup double with the Blues following a narrow 1-0 victory over Portsmouth at Wembley.

He would later have spells at Paris St Germain and also enjoyed Champions League glory with Real Madrid and most recently celebrated league success at Bayern Munich in 2017.

Watch Carlo Ancelotti sing at a celebration of the team's Bundesliga title win.

IPC send warning to Russia

Let's see how Russia responds to this ultimatum....

A statement from the International Paralympic Committee:

"The (IPC) has indicated that if the Russian Paralympic Committee (RPC) does not meet its obligations in full by early September then there is a strong chance it will not be allowed to enter its athletes into the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.

"The comments come after the IPC Governing Board unanimously decided last Thursday (18 May) not to lift the RPC’s suspension following an update from the IPC taskforce, which was appointed to monitor the fulfilment of the reinstatement criteria."

IPC president Sir Philip Craven said: "A number of key criteria still need to be met. At the moment there are a lot of good plans with timelines on paper, but we now need to see plans in action and delivering concrete results.”

Note: The IPC suspended the RPC on 7 August due to its inability to fulfil its IPC membership responsibilities and obligations, in particular its obligation to comply with the IPC Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Code (to which it is also a signatory).

Right, I'm off for a little while. Saj is back in the hot seat.


Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroenke says his shares "are not, and have never been, for sale".

The American's company released a statement on Monday following the recent £1bn bid by Alisher Usmanov to take full control of the Gunners.

Kroenke Sports and Entertainment added it was "a committed, long-term investor in Arsenal and will remain so".

The statement comes a day after Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years.

Rugby Union

The Rugby Players' Association has "unanimously rejected" proposals for an extended 10-month Premiership season.

Following the announcement of the new global calendar in March, Premiership Rugby confirmed the 2019-20 domestic season will start in early September and finish at the end of June.

Leicester's Tom Youngs had said the proposal "fills players with dread".

The RPA has now said a shortened two-month off-season will be "seriously detrimental to player welfare".

Rugby League

Catalans Dragons have parted company with head coach Laurent Frayssinous.

The only French side in Super League had lost their last five matches in a row including the 18-10 late defeat by Huddersfield at Magic Weekend.

Frayssinous, 40, is a former Catalans and France stand-off who became the first French coach of the club when he replaced Trent Robinson in 2012.

Coaches Jerome Guisset and Michael Monaghan and general manager Alex Chan will take charge of the first team.

The Red Squirrel: Sport's greatest squirrels? Formby FC of course.

Stoke fan Tyrone Sidley messaged striker Peter Crouch and offered to wear Speedos for the game at Southampton if, in return, he could have Crouch's match shirt.

The England international bartered with him, and said he had to wear the swimwear - and nothing else - for the trip to the south coast. Team-mate Charlie Adam then chimed in with a suggestion of a snorkel and flippers, too.

Challenge accepted.

Crouch scored the only goal of the match in Stoke's win over Saints and at the final whistle he found Tyrone in the crowd, complete with tiny shorts and snorkel, gave him a big kiss on the head and handed over the match-winning shirt.

All day we've been talking about the off things that happened on the final day of the Premier League season.

Was there anything more strange than this...

When the game stopped


Steve Davies: Kidderminster v Wrexham temporary TV scaffolding fell onto pitch due to high winds. Game held up 15 mins.

England currently lead Group F on the road to the World Cup in Russia - Gareth Southgate's side have a four-point advantage over Slovakia.

Scotland are fourth, but would only be three points behind England if they win at Hampden.

Gordon Strachan has also recalled Aberdeen midfielder Kenny McLean and defensive team-mate Mark Reynolds.

However, there's no place for Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor.

Murphy named in Scotland squad

Now, you do know that the football season stretches into June, don't you?

Even after the Champions League final, we have the small matter of Scotland v England at Hampden Park on 10 June.

The Scots have named their squad, with uncapped Brighton forward Jamie Murphy included.
