A long-awaited report into an alleged culture of bullying at British Cycling will be published on Wednesday.

An investigation started last year after claims made by former Great Britain track sprinter Jess Varnish and other Olympians and Paralympians.

A draft report that criticised the organisation was leaked in March.

Co-commissioned by UK Sport and British Cycling in April 2016, the report was prepared by a panel of five led by British Rowing chair Annamarie Phelps.

Fifa says Cameroon's participation at the Confederations Cup in Russia this month is in order despite complaints to the contrary.

A written submission from Cameroonian club Etoile Filante de Garoua argues that Cameroon's football federation (Fecafoot) led by Tombi A Roko Sidiki has no authority to send a team to the tournament.

Fifa has acknowledged there are problems in Cameroon football administration but insist no one should rock the boat for the time being.

Football's world governing body issued a statement which read: "Fifa is in contact with the football stakeholders in Cameroon to try and find a solution to the dispute that has been affecting the federation for some time.

Jackman set for Dragons

Former Ireland hooker Bernard Jackman is the new head coach of the Dragons.

Jackman had the same role at French club Grenoble until March and has also coached at Newbridge and Clontarf.

"It is a huge honour for me to be joining the Dragons at such an exciting time in their history," said Jackman.

"We are obviously at the beginning of a major period of transition off the pitch, but on it we will need to quickly get down to work and reward the faith and obvious passion of our supporters throughout the region."

Joe Ledley 'not sure' where he will play next

Huw Evans Picture Agency

Wales midfielder Joe Ledley says he has no idea where he will be playing his club football next season.

The 30-year old is a free agent after being released by Crystal Palace.

Ledley played a starring role for Wales in their 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with Serbia, despite not featuring for the Eagles since February.

However, he says his future is unclear. "Clubs have been in contact with my agent. Nothing is confirmed, we will just wait and see," he told BBC Wales.

"I am going to have a great summer with my family and my children and then see the options which I have.

Emmanuel Adebayor - welcomed back at Selhurst Park any time...

Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said his move to Premier League side Crystal Palace in 2016 was the "worst decision" of his career.

The 33-year-old joined Palace on a six-month loan spell in January last year and was released at the end of that season after scoring just once in 15 appearances.

"I had some great experiences in England in clubs who are among the best in the country," he said.

"The only error that I made was to sign for Crystal Palace in January 2016.

"I did it just to please my entourage, who were saying to me: 'Manu, you have to start playing again!' It was the worst decision of my career."

The free agent, released by Norwich in the summer, could be spending more time in the country having reportedly attracted interest from league champions Qarabag.

"Obviously I've spent a few days there and from what I've seen the city is fantastic and I was really impressed by the stadium," he said.

"Who knows what could happen if Qarabag come in with an offer for me? I could be back playing my football in Baku."

'My conversation with Hart stays private'

Joe Hart

England drew 2-2 in Scotland on Saturday - with keeper Joe Hart blamed by some for allowing Leigh Griffiths to score from two late free-kicks.

Was the Manchester City man to blame?

Southgate said: "They were great free-kicks. Beyond that, coaching conversaions I have with players stay private.

"If we go down that route then it's not the right thing to do. I go back to the concession of free-kicks being the starting point. There are many areas we could have done better."

'The young players now have good experience'

England manager Gareth Southgate on the Under-20s World Cup win: "We've been watching youth teams at every level. We made big decisions to improve our programme a few years ago. At the time it was a bit controversial. We needed to go to play the likes of Brazil, Mexico and Argentina.

"This group that won went to Mexico last summer and played Mexico at this tournament. We've exposed them to a good quality games programme. When I was a senior and played Brazil it was my first experience playing against them. Our younger guys have that experience now."

Leyton Orient winding-up petition dismissed at High Court


A winding-up petition against Leyton Orient has been dismissed at a High Court hearing in London.

Orient owed money to four creditors on the petition, having resolved unpaid taxes with HM Revenue & Customs.

Owner Francesco Becchetti was given until Monday to pay off debts or sell the club following a previous High Court hearing in March.

Orient were relegated to non-league this season, ending their 112-year stay in the Football League.

Outside the High Court on Monday, Orient fans could be heard protesting against Becchetti, who took over the club from Barry Hearn shortly after they lost the League One play-off final in 2014.

Patric Hornqvist gave the Penguins the lead with 95 seconds left, and Carl Hagelin scored into an empty net.

Victory meant they became the first team to retain the title since the Detroit Red Wings in 1998.

Hart on the move


Simon Stone

BBC Sport

Joe Hart has been painting a pretty bleak picture of his current situation, confirming, as yet, there is no demand for his services following the end of his loan spell at Torino.

The Manchester City keeper is in a better situation than last summer though.

Now, he and his advisers know they need to look for another club and have time to sort something out, unlike last year when most clubs had filled their goalkeeping slots when it became apparent City boss Pep Guardiola was not a fan.

I would be staggered if Hart did not get himself a decent move - and don't entirely discount him finding a club - either in England or abroad - that offers Champions League football.

World Cup in China?

President Xi Jinping will meet Fifa chief Gianni Infantino in Beijing on Wednesday.

"As to whether China will host the World Cup, this is a dream shared by many Chinese. We also hope we can see that happen as soon as possible," Lu said.

Reports suggest that China will bid to host the event either in 2030 or 2034.

Everton in talks with Ramirez

Sandro Ramirez

Everton are in talks with Malaga striker Sandro Ramirez as manager Ronald Koeman attempts to boost his striking options - and he has also stepped up his interest in Ajax captain Davy Klaassen.

Ramirez, 21, had an outstanding season with Malaga, scoring 14 goals in La Liga and he has a buy-out clause of only £5.2m after making a move from Barcelona last summer. He had been linked with Atletico Madrid but their transfer ban has opened the door for Everton and Koeman.

He is regarded as an addition to Everton’s striking resources, not a replacement for Romelu Lukaku, who continues to be linked with a return to former club Chelsea.

Koeman, who is intent on making a mark in the transfer market this summer, also wants to sign Ajax’s 24-year-old captain and Netherlands international Klaassen.
