  6. Tyson on... Tyson

    Boxing

    Mike Tyson also revealed he's an admirer of controversial current world champion Tyson Fury...

    Fury ended Wladimir Klitschko's nine-year reign as champion in November but has become better know since for a string of outspoken remarks.

    "One guy, Tyson Fury, I like to watch him because he has my name and stuff," Tyson said. "Everybody says 'ah, he's a bum', but I like him.

    "He beat Klitschko, so what are you going to say? That this guy is still a bum, but he beat the greatest fighter in the last 15 years?"

  7. 'Pro fighters at the Olympics? Ridiculous'

    Boxing

    Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson says the idea of professional boxers at the Olympics is "ridiculous" - because they would lose to amateurs.

    The Amateur International Boxing Association has said pro boxers will compete in Rio if a constitutional change is agreed next month.

    But Tyson, 49, a former Junior Olympic winner, said: "Some pro fighters are going to get beat by the amateurs.

    "It's just going to happen, I really believe that."

    West Ham United have completed a deal to sign 16-year-old forward Domingos Quina.

    The Portuguese won the European Under-17 Championships with his country this month and joins as an academy player on a two-year deal.

    “Domingos is some talent,” academy manager Terry Westley said. "He has the same qualities as a Manuel Lanzini - he is both a goal-scorer and a goal-creator. This is a potentially massive signing.”

  16. Sayers on prospect of Beijing bronze...

    Athletics

    British javelin record holder Goldie Sayers could be awarded a bronze medal from the 2008 Olympics, after silver medallist Mariya Abakumova was reported to be among 14 Russian athletes to have tested positive from the Beijing Games.

    “I think I’m really happy about it but I’m immensely angry," she told BBC Sport. 

    "My career would have taken a totally different trajectory, no doubt. It’s not the money, of which I would have lost out on thousands of pounds as a result of this, it’s more as an athlete not knowing how good you actually are. 

    "That’s what drug cheats cheat you out of, the ability to know how good you are at something.”

    #bbcsportsday, #geologybanter

    OK we'll admit it. We're actually really loving your #geologybanter. What began with dodgy jokes about Granit Xhaka signing for Arsenal has evolved into something... else. 

    This one's a pearler.

    Alex Jamonartero: Let's hope Granit Xhaka's overzealousness doesn't see him sent for an early batholith on his debut...

    Oh yes. Incidentally, your Twitter bio: Once dispossessed Peter Lovenkrands?..
