Last year on FA cup final day my sister had her final uni exam in Nottingham, went to it in her Palace shirt and raced back in time for the match. My brother and his wife were about to have a baby in hospital, which we all missed, and I also missed my own leaving drinks at work for it. We shouldn't have bothered really.. from Sara

    SMS Message: My old man got a call from a friend on the Monday saying he'd been out surfing when he'd been attacked by a shark, he was in hospital in Miami recovering but it looked like a long road ahead. In better news that meant that he couldn't go to see France v Togo in the 2006 Germany World Cup. Last minute flights and hotel booked, had to go and collect the tickets pretending to be an American (dodgy accent and all) with a photocopy of said friends passport, bought a Togo flag and wore it like a cape... they lost 2-0 but the atmosphere was amazing, and not a bad story for dinner party's. Thanks Jaws. (Friend healed fine, but not such a big surfer now) from Joe

    Celtic striker Moussa Dembele is fit enough to start Saturday's Scottish Cup final against Aberdeen, manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed.

    Dembele, 20, has not featured since late April, when he injured a hamstring in the semi-final win over Rangers.

    The Frenchman has scored 32 goals for the Scottish champions this season, five of them in the Scottish Cup.

    "He's fine. He has trained all week so he is available. He would be able to start," Rodgers said.

    Andy Murray has just told the assembled media in Paris that he feels "much better", following another bout of sickness earlier this week.

    The world number one has been struggling with illness and injury so far in 2017, but insisted he is ready to make a real challenge at Roland Garros.

    "I will be ready, for sure," said the Briton, who plays Andrey Kuznetsov in round one.

    "I just wasn't well for a few days. It happens to lots of players during the year just because of what we do. We are in the locker rooms with lots of players, lots of sweat, lots of germs, you know, in airplanes all the time. It happens.

    "I practised for three hours today, and I feel fine."

  20. On this day...

    Football

    In 2010, Real Madrid parted company with coach Manuel Pellegrini after just one season in charge and confirmed Jose Mourinho would take his place after resolving his contract with Inter Milan.

    Despite amassing the most league points, in history, by a Real Madrid side at that point (96), the Blancos missed out on the title to arch rivals Barcelona who got 99 points.

    Pellegrini left the Bernabeu with a win percentage of 75% from his 48 games in charge.
