  1. Post update

    That's it from us. Thanks for joining me on Sportsday today. 

    It's was brilliant hearing from Rachel Yankey about her experience of being a legend of her sport. 

    I'm sorry we didn't get to answer more of your questions! 

    Hopefully it won't be the last Q&A we get to do... 

    Why not let us know who you would be interested in putting a question to? 

    Happy International Women's Day to you all. 

  2. Damage has been done to Team Sky


    Some great analysis from BBC sports editor Dan Roan on the Team Sky situation.

    He reckons 'permanent damage to the team's reputation has been done' following the inquiry and parliamentary hearing into a 'mystery package' that was delivered to the during the 2011 Criterium du Dauphine in France.

    Yesterday, Team Sky admitted "mistakes were made" around the delivery of a medical package to Wiggins but deny breaking anti-doping rules.

    Roan says Team Sky's admission is 'an attempt to finally get a grip of a crisis that was seemed to be spiralling out of control.'

  3. Rehab, women in sport and proving #thisgirlcan

    International Women's Day

    Isobel Pooley

    British high jumper Isobel Pooley was deprived of her chance to compete at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by injury.

    BBC Sport caught up with the 24-year-old former British record holder to find out about the recovery process - and talk about why #thisgirlcan on International Women's Day.

    "It's amazing to feel empowered as a female athlete. In terms of participation, my sport of athletics is pretty gender-equal, although sadly there are some massive differences between how women's sport and men's sport are treated".  

    Read her full column here.

    John Morganfalse As a marathon runner, its got to be Paula Radcliffe. I firmly believe her world record is the equivalent to a male running sub 2hrs. 

  7. Sunderland commit to cheaper matchday tickets next season...



    Despite the very real threat of relegation, Sunderland have become the latest Premier League side to commit to some of the cheapest ticket prices in football at the Stadium of Light next year.

    Fans aged under the age of 16 can buy a season card for just £50 in 2017-18. 

    Ticket prices have been a common fan grievance since the annual BBC Price of Football study began in 2011, revealing the cost of a day out at the match at over 200 football league clubs.

    Other clubs who offer cut-priced tickets for fans include: 

    • Arsenal  subsidise tickets for their own away fans by £4.
    • Under-eights are given free entry at  Bournemouth  with a £7.50 membership.
    • Burnley  offer free season tickets to under-10s with a full-paying adult in the Family Stand.
    • Everton  offer £95 season tickets to under-11s.
    • Stoke City  offer free season tickets to City7 (seven-year-old) members when bought with an adult.
    • Sunderland  offer child season tickets for £25.
    • Watford  offer under-16s season tickets for £30 and discounted season tickets to fans who live more than 75 miles away from the stadium.
  8. Haye wants Bellew rematch


    Former heavyweight world champion David Haye has ruled out retiring from the sport and is targeting a rematch with Tony Bellew.

    Haye, 36, had  surgery  on an Achilles injury sustained in Saturday's  11th-round defeat  by Bellew in London.

    He suffered the injury in the sixth round of the fight, but says a two-and-a-half-hour operation "went well".

    "I live to fight another day and I will fight another day," Haye told Sky Sports.

    " is only fair to the fans to rematch against the guy who beat me. If that does not happen, then I will find a way to challenge for the heavyweight title."

    The 24-year-old, who became Britain's first Olympic gymnastics champion at the 2016 Rio Games, will miss the iPro World Cup in London next month.

    He will also miss April's European Championships in Romania.

  11. Brotherly inspiration...

    Rugby Union

    Richie Gray

    Scotland lock  Richie Gray  (pictured on the right), says younger brother Jonny (left.... obviously) is an "inspiration" rather than a sibling rival in their burgeoning second row partnership.

    Richie, the elder at 27 and taller at 6ft 9in, with 63 caps and a 2013 Lions Test on his CV, has been a mainstay for Scotland since his debut in 2010.

    But the progress of 6ft 6in Jonny, 23 next week, of late has seen him earn most plaudits as a potential 2017 Lion.

    "Jonny has gone from strength to strength," Richie Gray acknowledged.

    "What I said a couple of years ago was about the need to do it consistently, but he's been able to do it week in week out and that's the most impressive thing.

    "I've seen him come on as a leader. He's grown and matured and makes me very proud.

  12. "Football saved my life"

    A man who was sectioned after trying to kill himself several times says football saved his life.

    James Casling worked with QPR Community Trust and spoke publicly about his experience for the first time in Parliament on Tuesday.

    He shared his speech on the Victoria Derbyshire Programme.

  14. Ireland unchanged for trip to Wales

    Rugby union

    Like their opponents, Ireland have named an unchanged starting line-up for Friday's Six Nations game against Wales.

    With Jared Payne, 31, missing training on Monday because of an ankle knock, coach Joe Schmidt has opted to retain Garry Ringrose at outside centre.

    Payne has returned to Ulster action in the last fortnight after three months out because of a kidney injury.

    Rob Kearney remains at full-back after recovering from a groin injury picked up in the  win over France.

    Rugby Union


    Sarah Bonar will make her first Scotland start in Saturday's Women's Six Nations meeting with England at Twickenham Stoop.

    Bonar's inclusion at blindside flanker means Jemma Forsyth moves to number 8. The injured Jade Konkel drops out of the starting line-up.

    With Bonar promoted from the bench, Rachael Cook is named among the replacements, as is Abi Evans.

    Shade Munro's side  beat Wales 15-14  last month.
