    The WGC-Bridgestone Invitational will not feature on the European Tour next season after it was moved to the end of June by the PGA Tour of America.

    The PGA is bringing the event forward next year to avoid a clash with the Rio Olympics, where golf will feature for the first time since 1904.

    However, the June date clashes with the French Open at Le Golf National.

    As a result, money won at next year's Bridgestone will not count towards Ryder Cup points or the Race To Dubai.

    Sevilla midfielder Steven Nzonzi, a summer signing from Stoke, and defenders will miss the match because of gastroenteritis while defenders Timothee Kolodziejczak and Adil Rami, a recent recruit from AC Milan, are also doubts because of the stomach condition.

    Former Manchester United keeper Peter Schmeichel has criticised the way David De Gea's contract situation has been handled and urged the Spanish star to stay at Old Trafford.

    In his exclusive BBC column, England fast bowler Mark Wood says England will not give Australia a sniff of victory in next week's final Ashes Test at the Oval as they push for a 4-1 series win.

    Wood also talks about bowling the ball that won the Ashes, bringing out his imaginary horse in the post-match celebrations, being asked to write the team song and how Ben Stokes got into trouble for losing his room key.

    Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro

    The Daily Telegraph reports that club doctor Eva Carneiro's place on the Chelsea bench is under threat after the role was significantly changed as part of a backroom shake-up by manager Jose Mourinho.

    Carneiro was publicly criticised by Mourinho following the 2-2 Premier League draw against Swansea City for entering the pitch in stoppage time to treat Eden Hazard while they were trying to see out the game.

    The paper understands that while Carneiro will remain Chelsea's first-team doctor, she will not attend training sessions, games or enter the hotel and as things stand, she is not expected to be on the bench for Sunday's trip to Manchester City.

    Swimming

    What's your advice for aspiring swimmers? From Emilia ‏

    "Work hard but don't work hard and not smart, you have to have both to get anywhere in life.

    "You have to work smart so cut out all the sweets and fizzy drinks - you don't need them. Just stick to water and keep it simple. Stay off the supplements when you're younger, you probably only need them when you're about 20-25 so stay off all that and just enjoy it."

    Adam Peaty

    What is the worst thing about training? From Katey Kate

    "That's a good one but it's probably when you get a bit too used to things. You've swum there in the morning and then again in the afternoon and you are turning up at night thinking 'not this again', especially in the winter.

    "We try to mix it up and do something a bit different. I'll also change lanes, so one day I'll be in lane one, the next in lane three and one day in lane five so you get a bit of a different tile to look at."

  56. Adam Peaty Q&A

    Swimming

    Adam Peaty, fresh from picking up three gold medals at the Swimming World Championships in Kazan, Russia, has been answering your questions on Facebook. Here's what you had to ask...

    At what point did you realise you could be the best the world has ever seen, and did you think it could happen so young? From Carol ‏

    AP: "Last year was a bit of an eye-opener when I broke the world record. I knew if I was out fast in the 100m I could achieve that too, so I would say then. I thought it could happen maybe when I was about 26, not when I was 20, but it just shows what hard work and commitment can do."

It's going to be a great showdown and definitely one of the races to watch."

    But he is also unsure how long the England defender will be out for after he re-injured the ankle which required surgery earlier this year during training last week.

    "We hope that Leighton's ankle reacts well but it's not good news because it's an area where he had a previous injury and you feel as though you can see light at the end of the tunnel after a long period not being available," he said.

    "It's a setback but we want Leighton to get back on the pitch refreshed and this period is going to help his desire to come back."

    David De Gea

    Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea is expected to remain at Manchester United beyond the end of the transfer window.

    De Gea, 24, missed Saturday's win over Tottenham because manager Louis van Gaal thinks his concentration has been affected by interest from Real Madrid.

    United continue to insist they will only sell for a world record fee for a goalkeeper or if Real's Spain defender Sergio Ramos, 29, comes the other way and club officials are not expecting either to happen before 1 September.

    London 2012 gold medallist Anna Watkins is back in training with a view to qualifying for the Rio Olympics - five months after having her second baby.

    Watkins partnered Katherine Grainger to double sculls gold, but said in January 2014 she would not defend the title after giving birth to her first son but she has been on the water since April, hoping to make a comeback.

    "I want to see what this old, clapped-out, two-babies body is capable of," the 32-year-old told BBC Sport.

    The London Evening Standard reports that QPR will offer Charlie Austin a new deal if no one meets their £15m asking price in this transfer window.

    The 26-year-old striker has just one year left on his current contract and has attracted attention from a number of clubs.

    "We are now into the season and want to settle our side down as quickly as possible," said QPR director of football Les Ferdinand. "It's not good for the club, it's not good for Charlie — it's not good for anyone.

    "The price is still £15m and the only firm bid that has come in is still from Leicester. Everyone feels that bids are going to come in for him, it's just a matter of when. But if a club doesn't pay the fee, then we will offer him a new contract to get him to stay."

  82. Martinez wants window closed

    Fans may disagree, but Everton boss Roberto Martinez reportedly wants the transfer window done and dusted with ahead of the first kick-off of the season to avoid any unnecessary distractions.

    It follows Chelsea's supposed interest in highly-rated defender John Stones.

    The Canaries lost 3-1 to Crystal Palace on Saturday with Palace able to leave £25m-rated Yannick Bolasie on the bench, alongside big-money signing Connor Wickham and on-loan Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford.

    "I don't think about the money side. That is more for directors," Neil told the Eastern Daily Press.

    "It helps to have that money if you can go and buy someone for £50m, but you can still be competitive. Look at teams like Southampton and Swansea. They have spent really well and brought in quality players and performed well in the league so it is achievable and there is no reason we can't do the same."

    When a £49m midfielder who is loved and loathed in equal measure steps out for your team, it's easy to forget that you have David Silva pulling the strings there too.

    The Spanish maestro put in an "unbelievable performance" against West Brom, according to Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini. Gary Lineker was just as gushing, calling Silva "different gravy" on Twitter.

    Goal-scoring captain Vincent Kompany hinted at an edge to City's attitude this season: "We came out knowing we had a point to prove. Obviously there is a lot of favourite teams now and we're not part of it, I've heard."

    Sunday is their chance to put that statement to its first proper test as they welcome Chelsea to the Etihad.

    Al Hasawi said on Twitter: "We have not accepted any bid for Henri. The manager must be consulted and a replacement identified before I accept a bid."

    Lansbury, 24, joined Forest in 2012 and has a year left on his contract.

    It also claims Chelsea are in for left-back Abdul Rahman Baba from German team Augsburg, with £17m the figure doing the rounds.

    The Mirror talks of "title omens" after Manchester City's comprehensive victory last night, touching on the fact that their previous winning campaigns have kicked off with Monday night wins.

    More ominously in the short-term, perhaps, the paper also claims that Manuel Pellegrini is close to signing Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bruyne for £47m.

    Beyond City, Liverpool defensive midfielder Lucas is reportedly on his way out of Anfield after a bust-up with Brendan Rodgers, and West Ham fans are said to be up in arms over a potential move for Joey Barton.
