  6. Bryant to captain British team at Euro Indoors

    Athletics

    Commonwealth Games decathlon silver medallist Ashley Bryant will captain the British team at this weekend's European Indoor Championships in Belgrade, Serbia.

    The 25-year-old will lead a 32-strong team featuring the likes of Laura Muir, who is aiming to become double European Champion in the 1500m and 3000m, defending European champion Richard Kilty and world number one Andrew Pozzi.

    However, heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson, who was due to compete in the long jump, has withdrawn from the event.

    "It is a real step up from being World Junior captain back in 2010," said Bryant. "I’ve personally had a great indoor season so far and to be given this role is the icing on the cake."

    England women coach Mark Sampson says his team must "find a way to get over the line" as they prepare to face France in their SheBelieves Cup opener on Wednesday - a game which will be shown from 21:00 GMT on the BBC Sport website and the Red Button.

    England face the world's top-three teams at the event, with USA and Germany their other opponents. Last year they failed to win at the tournament against the same trio.

    Remember the Manchester derby that never was in Beijing last summer?

    Well, discussions about having another go at arranging the first derby to be played outside England are well down the track.

    The International Champions Cup are not due to confirm their fixtures for July until later this month and it is understood nothing has yet been signed.

    But City v United is likely to be their stand-out fixture, with the game due to be played on the west coast

  14. Doping in sport inquiry - key points

    Cycling

    Nicole Sapstead, UK Anti-Doping Agency's chief executive:

    • Ukad received one account that package contained Fluimucil  
    • Not able to ascertain medical records to confirm or refute
    • Says that the lack of medical records have caused a problem
    • Dr Freeman "wore two hats", for Team Sky and British Cycling
    • No evidence of any sort of cover up or tampering, "that is an incredibly serious allegation" 
  15. Doping in sport inquiry

    Cycling

    That's it from the hearing. Here is what you may have missed.. 

    Former British Cycling coach Simon Cope:

    • Cope says Shane Sutton asked him to bring a package out  
    • Package was sealed, left on a desk in the British Cycling office in a jiffy bag 
    • Note saying 'for Richard Freeman', former Team Sky doctor
    • Says he did not ask what was in the package  
    • Cope says he would not question integrity of British Cycling
    • Adds that he has "never seen" doping in British Cycling   
  16. Doping in sport inquiry

    Cycling

    Sapstead:  "This investigation has taken over 1,000 man hours.

    "What it has highlighted to me is gone are the days when all we did was testing and getting a positive outcome to blood or urine tests.

    "Investigations themselves are becoming more common than they were before and when you look at the resources this has taken at the detriment of other investigations at UKAD. I do not think the resources we have at the moment are sustainable

    "I would like my budget to be doubled. That would enable me to cover a greater breath and depth within sport.

    "As this has shown, we need more investigative manpower."

  17. Doping in sport inquiry

    Cycling

    Sapstead:  "Team Sky did have a policy of keeping records, just not everyone was adhering to it.

    "I would expect for a professional road cycling team that was founded on the premise of exhibiting that racing could be conducted cleanly, not to have records that would be able to demonstrate any infers to the contrary."

  18. Doping in sport inquiry

    Cycling

    Sapstead confirmed that Ukad had spoken to Sir Bradley Wiggins over the matter.

    "His recollection was that he was treated with Fluimucil the evening of 12 June (the final day of the Criterium Dauphine). 

    "He does not know what was in the package but he was treated with Fluimucil that evening. 

    Our records indicate the fluimucil for Team Sky and British Cycling came from two outlets, one in Germany, one in Switzerland."

    She added that it was administered by a nebuliser.

  19. Doping in sport inquiry

    Cycling

    Sapstead says that British Cycling have a record of a theft for Dr Freeman's laptop in Greece in the summer of 2014 but she is unsure whether the theft was reported to the police.

    "We believe it was," she says. "We are working with Interpol to try and obtain confirmation it was reported. It was reported to British Cycling. We are unable to ascertain that Team Sky was informed as much."

    "It's very difficult at any given time to see what is being prescribed when Dr Freeman is acting on behalf of British Cycling or Team Sky."

  20. Doping in sport inquiry

    Cycling

    Sapstead says that UK Anti-Doping's investigation is not concluded yet.

    "We have no evidence that there has been any sort of cover up or tampering, that is an incredibly serious allegation," she says.

    "At this time we have no evidence to pursue such a charge against anyone."
