Frankie Dettori who missed Royal Ascot - including five winning mounts - because of an arm injury is expected to be out of action until the middle of July.

It means the 46-year-old, hurt in a paddock fall at Great Yarmouth on 13 June, will be absent when Cracksman, on whom he was third in the Epsom Derby, lines up in Saturday's Irish Derby at The Curragh.

England Women's team Twitter ban


The England Women's cricket team will not be posting any holiday snaps any time soon, they are steering clear of Twitter for the duration of the World Cup to avoid distraction. It didn't work in the first match as they lost to India, but they will seek an improvement tomorrow against Pakistan in Leicester, a match you can hear live on BBC Radio 5 live and follow live text of on the BBC website.

Watch now as England's Anya Shrubsole explains more about the team decision.

'I've never seen anyone come off the throttle so quickly'


More now on the big row in F1, prompted by Sebastian Vettel swerving into Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes during Sunday's Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku.

Legendary former world champion Sir Jackie Stewart said: "Lewis slowed down so quickly in a very unlikely place. You have got to take that into account. That was a shock to Sebastian, and that is why he came alongside Lewis to ask 'what the hell are you doing?' What Vettel then did was to unquestionably collide with Hamilton.

"There is no room for that, no excuse for that and it is wrong. It is inappropriate behaviour. It would be very simple to put the complete blame on one man, but what initiated the bad behaviour was what happened before.

"It was totally unexpected. I am not trying to hook Lewis into this the wrong way, but that was the whole crux of what happened. Lewis put his brakes on so hard that Vettel hit him. I am not blaming Lewis for the accident but I have to say I have never seen anyone come off the throttle so quickly."

Germany don't practice penalties

England U21s v Germany U21s (Tues, 17:00 BST)

Ian Dennis

Senior football reporter in Poland for 5 live Sport

In the German press conference, their U-21 coach Stefan Kuntz, who played in the winning Germany team at Euro 96, makes a point of acknowledging England's "special success" with the U-17's reaching the Euro final, the U-20's winning the World Cup and now the U-21's.

The 54-year-old says Germany haven't practised penalties - "makes no sense to train".

Predictably there were a lot of Euro 96 questions....

'No fear' for England - Lampard

Victor Wanyama Street...or is it?

Tottenham's Kenya international midfielder Victor Wanyama was honoured in Tanzania on Saturday by having a street named after him in Dar es Salaam.

But the gesture looks to have been short-lived as local websites showed a picture of the street sign being taken away the following day.

A statement from the local Ubungo council said procedures to rename a street had not been observed.

Footballers on holiday


Last time I was on this shift we began a series entitled "Footballers on holiday" a short-lived item because a) there is hardly any time between seasons and b) we didn't have many pictures. But here is episode two as Wilfried Zaha (before the appointment of Frank de Boer) visits Skegness. (OK it might not be Skegness).

Get Involved - De Boer named Palace boss


Simon Atkins: Great manager in the Netherlands, but this isn't the Eredivisie, and he's managing Palace not Ajax. Will be hard for him.

Any Palace fans excited by the appointment?

Edmund blues


That 6-4 3-6 6-3 defeat for Kyle Edmund earlier today means the British number two goes into Wimbledon without a win on the grass court this year.

He was knocked out in the first round at Queens by teenager Denis Shapovalov before Donald Young swept him aside today.

Willis to face friend Broady next

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Wimbledon qualifying

Marcus Willis has been talking to the media after his first-round win in Wimbledon qualifying, 12 months on from his run to the second round proper.

"It feels very different," said Willis. "Last year I came here and no-one really knew what was going on, I was happy to be here.

"I’m happy to be here again, obviously, but after what I did last year, doing less could be disappointing."

Next up for Willis is an all-British contest against good friend Liam Broady.

"There will probably be more people rooting for Marcus, he's a loveable guy and fantastic to watch," said Broady.

Australia on course


BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Defending champions Australia are not hanging around in their reply to the 204 all out by West Indies at Taunton. The Aussies have raced to 89-0 after 19 overs, Beth Mooney hitting six fours in her 44 from 59 balls.

The 32-year-old, winner of 30 time stages in the famous race, will be joined by compatriots Steve Cummings and Scott Thwaites.

Watson underway


Heather Watson's clash with Dominika Cibulkova has just begun on Centre Court in Devonshire Park. The British number two has held serve in the first game and you can followlive coverage on BBC Two.

'I want to stay for the three years'


Asked if he was using Crystal Palace as a stepping stone to another club, Frank de Boer replied: "I don't want to think about it, I am focusing on this job. What happens in the future is not important. I want to concentrate on making Palace a solid Premier League team. That is my only concern. I have signed for three years and I want to stay for the three years,"

The last Palace manager to complete three years or more in charge was Steve Coppell from 1984-93.

'We will look at what we need'


New Palace boss Frank de Boer on last season's loan defender Mamadou Sakho, who is no longer with the club.

"Sakho was impressive last season so we will look at what we need. First of all I need to see all the players, I have a very good opinion and know a lot about the team."

All change at the Palace


A new manager, a new sponsor and a new away shirt. A BIG day at Selhurst Park. I preferred the white shirt with the red and blue diagonal stripe.

'We need to build a cushion'


Steve Parish: "We need to build a cushion, Frank's number one brief is to reduce mine and the fans' anxiety this season."

A cushion away from the relegation zone we assume, not an actual cushion? Let us know your thoughts on the appointment of Frank de Boer. Please tweet to #bbcsportsday

'Dominantly, with and without the ball'


Frank de Boer will not be emulating the Sam Allardyce style of play at Selhurst Park. "I have my own type of coaching and style of play. We will try and play dominantly, with and without the ball, and play attractive football. They have a fantastic fan base here."

'Zaha wants to be that key player'


New boss Frank de Boer is understandably keen to utilise the talents of talented winger Wilfried Zaha at Selhurst Park.

"Zaha is already one of the key players in the squad, nice to see he loves to play for Palace and wants to be that key player."

Get Involved - De Boer named Palace boss


Geoff Naylor: Frank de Boer has absolutely no experience of leading a struggling team. What's going to happen when Palace lose a few games?

Willis back on the winning trail

Piers Newbery

BBC Sport at Wimbledon qualifying

It couldn't happen again, could it? Marcus Willis is back to causing upsets on the Wimbledon grass - the world number 374 beats world number 184, Andrej Martin of Slovakia 7-5 7-5 in the first round of qualifying at Roehampton. The 26-year-old did not drop serve as he serve-and-volleyed his way to victory. Two more wins required for a trip to the All England Club next week.

De Boer backed by Van Gaal


Louis van Gaal provided plenty of interest at his news conferences, if not always with his style of play, during his time at Manchester United and new Palace boss Frank de Boer consulted his fellow Dutchman before signing his three-year contract to manage the south London club.

"I spoke with Louis van Gaal and asked him what the experience was like? He has always been very good to me, he was the first one to congratulate me," De Boer said.

'We will look at one or two signings'


More from new Palace boss Frank de Boer, who adds: "This club can grow further and further. They spend a lot of money and there is the possibility to do something well with that money.

"I've not met the players yet, we will look at one or two signings but I think it is necessary to see all the players here first."

'A solid Premier League team'


The new Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer is not targeting the title just yet. "The aim is to be a solid Premier League team, not to struggle with relegation. That is our main target, if we do more that’s nice."

'An amazing milestone for us'


Palace chairman Steve Parish: "It's just about the worst kept secret in football, Fantastically exciting for this football club, an amazing milestone for us. I am excited to work with him and what we can achieve with the club."
