    "The other day, I met a guy who was haranguing me about how ridiculous he thought Lewis Hamilton's tattoos were.

    "Now, tattoos are not my cup of tea, but if Hamilton likes them - or wants to dye his hair blond, or hang out with pop stars - who are we to judge?

    "As long as it is not affecting his driving - and it is abundantly clear that it is not, unless it is positively - then he should get on and do whatever he wants.

    "He is young, he is wealthy, he is at the top of his form, he has a great car. He will be feeling brilliant in himself, and that is reflecting in his performances on the race track."

    The 14th seed won their fourth-round match 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 6-7 (2-7) 7-6 (7-0) in four hours and 18 minutes.

    It is the first time since 2010 that Murray has not reached at least the last eight at a Grand Slam.

    Instead of finding a full-time replacement, Sri Lanka put its head of coaching and former under-19 player Jayaratne in temporary charge of a team grappling with a tricky transition following the retirement of batting stalwarts Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara.

    Murray v Anderson
  103. 'My phone has frozen'

    Kevin Anderson, as you might expect, was pretty happy after victory and says he now wants to compete with the elite on a more regular basis.

    "That's how I approach my tennis. Obviously I want to get to that stage," the South African said.

    g

    "Top 10 has been a lifelong dream for me. I feel like I'm getting closer - even top five, I think that's ultimately where I want to be.

    "My phone has kind of frozen because of how many congratulatory texts I've received. It was awesome to see all the support and actually amazing to see how many people were watching the match."

  104. Lacking spark

    Tennis

    Russell Fuller

    BBC tennis correspondent in New York

    Andy Murray's racquet was not the magic wand it so often appears. He lacked a spark, and the usual pop on his groundstrokes in the teeth of an exceptional performance by Anderson, who proved he doesn't just rely on a big first serve.

    Expletives littered the air and a racquet was smashed, with Murray even engaging the umpire about the length of the South African's bathroom break. Murray gave everything he could to complete his second spectacular comeback in a week but ultimately ran out of steam at the end of a long, hot American summer.

  105. 'I had my opportunities'

    Tennis

    An emotional Murray smashed his racquet - handing it over to a spectator - and argued with the umpire during his defeat.

    s

    "To lose a match like that, that was over four hours, tough obviously after a couple of tough matches earlier in the tournament, as well. It's a hard one to lose, for sure," the Scot said afterwards.

    "When you're playing against players that are at that level, you need to make them think and then give them a chance to get nervous.

    "I felt like I had my opportunities there but didn't manage to capitalise on them."

  106. Bad night for Brits

    Tennis

    So to the tennis, where it was not a good night for the Brits.

    Johanna Konta was always going to be up against it in taking on a two-time Grand Slam winner - though she played well in defeat to Petra Kvitova.

    g

    But Andy Murray's exit came as a big shock, beaten 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 6-7 (2-7) 7-6 (7-0) in four hours and 18 minutes as South African Kevin Anderson reached his first major quarter-final.

    It is the first time since the 2010 US Open that Murray has lost before the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam.

  109. Ready for action

    Football

    England, of course, have no such worries, already qualified for Euro 2016 in France thanks to that 6-0 win over San Marino on Saturday - which made it seven wins from seven.

    It means that, from England's point of view, there isn't too much riding on tonight's Wembley clash with Switzerland.

    g

    Roy Hodgson would beg to differ, though, and so too Wayne Rooney, who stands on the verge of history ... one more goal and he will break Sir Bobby Charlton's England scoring record.

    We'll have build-up to the match throughout the day and there will, of course, be live text commentary of the game itself on the BBC Sport website.

  110. How it stands

    Football

    This, then, is the situation in Group D. Who will get third - the Irish or the Scots? Time will tell...

    Euro 2016 Qualifying Group D
  111. Two-way fight

    Football

    Republic of Ireland - who beat Georgia 1-0 thanks to a Jon Walters goal - end their campaign with a home fixture against Germany and a trip to Poland, thus facing a difficult end to qualifying.

    g

    Gordon Strachan's men play Poland (h) and Gibraltar (a) in October - and former Scotland international Pat Nevin is confident that they can still claim a play-off place.

    "If the Republic don't get any more points, which would be unsurprising, and Scotland draw with Poland and get a win against Gibraltar, they would get third," Nevin told BBC Sport. "I think that is fairly likely."

    Which means the end to this group could be very interesting indeedy.

  112. Worrying times for Scotland

    Football

    The phrase 'looking good' cannot, however, be used for Scotland.

    Gordon Strachan's men lost a thrilling encounter with world champions Germany, which, on the back of Friday's defeat to Georgia, leaves them scrambling for points from their last two qualifiers to reach the play-offs for Euro 2016.

    g

    All, however, is not lost yet...

  113. Looking good

    Football

    This is how it looks for Northern Ireland. At the risk of tempting fate, they can almost start booking their hotel for France next summer.

    Group F
  114. 'It could have cost us'

    Football

    O'Neill's men knew victory would seal Northern Ireland's qualification but a mistake from goalkeeper Michael McGovern gifted third-placed Hungary the lead with about 15 minutes left.

    It got worse for the hosts when Chris Baird was sent off for two bookable offences in the same phase of play, before Lafferty's injury-time equaliser was met with scenes of jubilation at Windsor Park.

    f

    "I've never seen a player booked twice in one incident and I don't agree with it." said O'Neill.

    "For a player to be sent off like that could have cost us a place at the finals."

  115. 'Pure theatre'

    Football

    Straight to Northern Ireland, whose boss Michael O'Neill described the 1-1 draw with Hungary as "pure theatre" after Kyle Lafferty's late leveller left them two points from Euro 2016 qualification.

    The out-of-favour Norwich striker kept his side top of Group F with two matches remaining as they look to reach their first ever European Championship.

    g

    "The onus is on Hungary to win their last two games." O'Neill said.

    A win at home to bottom side Greece or victory in Finland, or two draws, would ensure Northern Ireland qualify for their first major championship since 1986.
