Celtic are one of 12 clubs pursuing the signature of Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts.

The 20-year-old spent 18 months on loan at Celtic Park, winning the treble last season, and is expected to leave City permanently ahead of the new season.

British great Sally Gunnell has been reflecting on her rivalry with American Sandra Farmer-Patrick ahead of this year's World Championships in London.

Back in1993, Gunnell and Farmer-Patrick fought out one of the most thrilling finishes in the championships history as Gunnell repeated her victory from the Barcelona Olympics the year before, beating her rival by five hundredths of a second as both went well inside the world record.

"It was massive," she told BBC Sport.

"She was on my thoughts every training session. She was why I trained on Christmas Day because I thought she wouldn't be. We didn't speak very much and when we did there were arguments, she accused me of hitting her over a hurdle in 1991, it went on for years.

"The psyching out before races was completely aimed at me. In the athletes village, the call room, races before. I had to learn to accept it and it was hugely healthy in terms of pushing me on."

Johanna Konta racked up her 300th Tour win earlier this week - now she is halfway to number 301.

The British number one takes the first set 6-4 against Belgium's Yanina Wickmayer - who is Konta's doubles partner - in their last-16 singles match at the Nottingham Open.

Konta had to work a little harder as the set wore on. Which is a good sign for Wickmayer and for those fans who want to see a competitive match.

Konta blowing a little cold

Tennis

Johanna Konta may have only ever won one match at Wimbledon, but that hasn't stopped expectations building that the British number one can go far at SW19 this year.

Especially if the world number eight enjoys success in the warm-ups tournaments at Nottingham and Eastbourne.

Konta, who will be the first home top-10 ranked female at Wimbledon since 1984, won the first four games against her Belgian doubles partner Yanina Wickmayer but... a few errors have started to creep in.

Konta has lost the past three games as the wind starts to whip up around the Nottingham Tennis Centre.

But she is still a break up.

Top seed Konta is looking to build momentum on grass ahead of Wimbledon after a disappointing clay-court season which saw her only win two matches.

The pair are knocking up, although there are some dark clouds gathering in the Nottingham sky.
