Winter completes O'Brien double

The English and Irish 1000 Guineas winner Winter (4-9 favourite) took victory in the Coronation Stakes to complete a big-race double for jockey Ryan Moore and trainer Aidan O'Brien.

Winter passed the post with two and a quarter lengths in hand over Roly Poly, while Hydrangea was third to give trainer O'Brien a one-two-three, and a second victory on the day after Caravaggio in the preceding Commonwealth Cup.

England boxing for gold

It has been a successful day (so far) for England in the European Boxing Championship in Ukraine, with four boxers qualifying for the finals.

Galal Yafai, Peter McGrail, Cheavon Clarke and Luke McCormack are all through to fight for gold in their respective weight categories.

There are four more English boxers in action in the second session of today's coverage, which you can watch live now.

Galal Yafai is hoping to follow in the footsteps of older brothers Gamal and Kal, who are both professionals.

Dimitrov wins first set



Easy peasy for Grigor Dimitrov. The Bulgarian sixth seed races into a 5-0 lead in the opening set against Daniil Medvedev, who - you will remember - is struggling with a shoulder injury.

Medvedev, 21, is clearly playing through the pain barrier but somehow manages to claw his way back to 5-3.

Then Dimitrov, who has extraordinarily landed 100% of his first serves, puts his foot on the gas to seal the set with a hold to love.

Winter winner at Ascot?

Fillies take centre stage next at Royal Ascot meeting with the Coronation Stakes (16:20 BST).

Winter, winner of the English and Irish 1000 Guineas, is set to start odds-on favourite for Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien, who won the Commonwealth Cup earlier with Caravaggio.

He also saddles Roly Poly and Hydrangea, who were second and third behind Winter in the Irish Guineas at the Curragh last month.

The home team is headed by by the John Gosden-trained Dabya, while Mark Casse's American challenger La Coronel and Fabrice Chappet's shock French 1000 Guineas winner Precieuse add an international flavour.

Sports stars who became actors

Is there anything that Freddie Flintoff won't turn his hand to?

The former cricketer is to make his television and stage debut. He will appear in the television and musical versions of Fat Friends as Kevin Mergatroyd, the fiance of budding slimmer Kelly, played by Shirley Valentine star Jodie Prenger.

That got us thinking, what other sport stars have become actors? Well, here's 10 of them.

Caravaggio claims classy win

Royal Ascot

The unbeaten Caravaggio claimed the sixth win of his career with a brilliant turn of foot in the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.

Jockey Ryan Moore bided his time before pushing the 5-6 favourite, trained by Aidan O'Brien, past the Godolphin pair of Harry Angel and Blue Point.

Moore said it felt like a very good race, while O'Brien believes Caravaggio may be the fastest horse he has trained.

It was a fourth victory of the 2017 meeting for super sire Scat Daddy.

Next up at Queen's


This third Queen's quarter-final could be a short one.

Not because Bulgarian sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov will steamroller his young opponent Daniil Medvedev (or vice versa), but because the 21-year-old Russian has already taken a medical time-out... before the match starts.

Medvedev, ranked 60th in the world, needs some treatment after aggravating a shoulder injury in the warm-up.

Daniil Medvedev

Luckily for all concerned (or more specifically Medvedev and the paying punters) he is able to begin the match. But his serve is already under pressure...

The unbeaten Caravaggio, who won the Coventry Stakes at this meeting a year ago for trainer Aidan O'Brien, is set to go off favourite.

But he faces strong opposition from the Godolphin pair of Blue Point and Harry Angel.

Game, set and match - Cilic


Marin Cilic

The man to beat? Fourth seed Marin Cilic reaches the Aegon Championships semi-finals at Queen's with a 6-4 7-5 win against American Donald Young.

The 28-year-old Croatian, who won the title in 2012, finally gets over the line by breaking Young's serve in a final game which went to a seventh deuce.

Next up? Luxembourg's Gilles Muller, who beat Sam Querrey earlier, is his semi-final opponent.

"I'm playing really well this week, I'm feeling great on the court. It is another match without losing serve, so that is extremely pleasing," says Cilic.

Permian bounces back from Derby defeat

Royal Ascot

Permian (6-1) returned to form after a disappointing run in the Derby to win the King Edward VII Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The Mark Johnston-trained colt won the Dante Stakes at York in May and was sent off an 8-1 chance at Epsom earlier in the month, but was 10th behind winner Wings Of Eagles.

Jockey William Buick shot to the front and stuck to the rail for his third victory of the week.

'Perfect mix of experience and potential'

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on new £34m signing Mohamed Salah: "He has the perfect mix of experience and potential - this is a really exciting signing for us.

"I have followed him since he emerged at Basel and he has matured into a really good player.

"His pace is incredible, he gives us more attacking threat and we are already strong in this area. I like that we will make it even more competitive."

"He was going really well in the Derby earlier this month before being shuffled to the back of the field and experiencing more trouble later on.

"Salouen was 13th but could easily have finished fifth or sixth. I'd love him to run really well."

Stoute eyes Ascot record

Sir Michael Stoute has been one win away all week from becoming Royal Ascot's leading all-time trainer but still awaits his first victory of the 2017 meeting.

The Newmarket trainer boasts a leading chance in the King Edward VII Stakes (15:05 BST) with Crystal Ocean, the mount of Andrea Atzeni.

The race features the first of two runners owned by the Queen on Friday as she also seeks her first winner of the week - Call To Mind, trained by William Haggas, is about a 16-1 shot.

Mainstream is around 5-1 in the concluding Duke of Edinburgh Stakes (17:35) for Stoute, who sits level on 75 Royal Ascot winners with the late Sir Henry Cecil.

You can check out the racecard on the BBC Sport website, with commentary on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

Guardiola v Sherwood

Lots of footballers at the Belfry today.

I have spoken to Phil Jagielka, Ronald de Boer, Tim Sherwood and Kieron Dyer.

Pep Guardiola is here. As is James Milner, Ryan Giggs, Nemanja Vidic and Michael Carrick.


In addition to the chance to play at one of the world's most famous golf courses, they are also competing in an England v Rest of the World Ryder Cup style competition.

Today is pro-am day, Saturday and Sunday the tournament days. Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke are the respective captains.

Clarke is thinking about what orders to give Guardiola, one of the world's most high profile football managers.

"The team talk will be interesting. He should do the talking," before the Irishman quipped. "But with the way Manchester City played last season maybe I should say a few things."
