  1. That's all folks

    Well, another Sportsday is over.

    We've heard from some big Premier League guns today, Claudio Ranieri and Guus Hiddink among those speaking to the media.

    It's more of the same tomorrow, with Manuel Pellegrini, Arsene Wenger and - if he can stand up long enough - Louis van Gaal among those holding press conferences.

    It goes without saying we will have them all for you.

    See you tomorrow at 08:00 GMT, that's all for now...

  2. On this day

    2012: The Gary Speed Memorial Match took place at the Cardiff City Stadium, ending Wales 0-1 Costa Rica. Arsenal's Joel Campbell got the goal on an emotional night of football.

  3. Brady to play till 42?

    American Football

    Tom Brady

    The New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady has reportedly agreed to a two-year contract extension through the 2019 season - when he will be 42.

    According to ESPN, Brady's salary-cap charge for 2016 was scheduled to be a team-high $15 million and the extension would lower that number.

    Brady, who turns 39 in August, has two years left on his existing contract, paying him $9 million in 2016 and $10 million in 2017.

    The four-time Super Bowl champion has always maintained he could play well into his 40s.

  4. Ooh la la...


    Here’s one for the football hipsters (and for the curious). If you are very much pro-Europe – in a footballing, not political, sense of course – then head over to BBC Radio 5 live from 21:00 GMT tonight.

    Mark Chapman is presenting the European Football Show, with topics of discussion likely to include Cristiano Ronaldo and his seemingly-disparaging comments about his not-so-famous team-mates (link:, the race for the Bundesliga golden boot and whether Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri should be catching Chelsea’s eye.

    Ooh la la! Don’t miss it.

  5. Conte 'preparing' for Chelsea


    Antonio Conte

    Fox Sports (via the Daily Express) reports that former England manager Fabio Capello claims fellow Italian Antonio Conte, who is expected to be named Chelsea manager, is already "preparing" for the Stamford Bridge job.

  6. Valencia appeal fails



    Valencia have failed to overturn a controversial decision to disallow a goal in a Champions League Under-19 penalty shootout against Chelsea.

    The Spanish side protested to Uefa after the referee ruled Alberto Gil's penalty had hit the post when it had in fact rebounded from inside the goal.

    Valencia boss Gary Neville called it "scandalous" while Chelsea said the ball"clearly crossed the line".

    On Monday, Valencia said their appeal had been dismissed.

  7. Lofty ambitions


    And if you want to see the kind of thing Hunt does, check this out. If you're scared of heights, it's best to look away now.


    Wowzers. Makes sitting in an office all day look quite dull really...

  8. Hunt leads the way


    Great Britain's Gary Hunt claimed victory in the first FINA high diving World Cup of the year.

    Hunt's compatriot Blake Aldridge came fifth with a score of 558.45.

  9. Main man


    Want an idea of why losing N'Golo Kante to injury is such a big blow for Leicester? This may give you an idea.

  10. Celtic to appeal


    Dedryck Boyata

    Celtic will appeal against the red card shown to Dedryck Boyata in the draw at Hamilton Academical despite manager Ronny Deila having criticised the defender.

    After Friday's game at New Douglas Park, the Norwegian had said he agreed with referee Craig Thomson's decision.

    But Deila has changed his mind after reviewing television footage.

    "I have seen it many times and, when you've seen it from all angles, it's the wrong decision," Deila said.

  11. Setback at the double


    Milos Raonic

    Canada's Davis Cup hopes have received a double blow after world number 13 Milos Raonic and top doubles player Daniel Nestor pulled out of next weekend's first-round tie against France.

    Raonic withdrew from the world-group tie - which starts on Friday - as he is still recovering from an adductor tear suffered at the Australian Open.

    Nestor, the number 12 ranked doubles player, ruled himself out due to a last-minute family matter.
