    Video caption: British Cycling staff feared for their careers - Phelps

    A report into claims of bullying within the Great Britain cycling team has criticised British Cycling's board, former technical director Shane Sutton and funding agency UK Sport.

    British Cycling lacked good governance at board level, it said.

    A "culture of fear" existed within the team, according to many staff members.

    The chair of the review, Annamarie Phelps, denied the long-awaited report was "a whitewash" after a more damning draft was leaked in March.

  8. Fans express concern about Premier League fixtures

    .

    A Premier League fan groups, backed by the Football Supporters' Federation, has expressed concerns about the fixtures for the upcoming season.

    They have found that clubs play 10 Premier League games between 25 November and 1 January, five at home and five away. That's compared to seven league games in the same period two years ago.

    "Little or no effort has been made by the Premier League to try and minimize away travel, given that Newcastle United supporters travelling to all five games will face three trips to London in that time, and travel a total of 2484 miles," read a statement from the group.

    Midweek games are also a concern, with the fan group finding that getting home afterwards is a real concern with no scehduled train service available for away fans for 63% of midweek games.

    Read more on the issues here.

    Jonny Evans

    West Brom have turned down a £10m bid from Leicester for Northern Ireland skipper Jonny Evans.

    It is thought Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare wants Evans in addition to another central defender, Harry Maguire, who is about to join the club from Hull for £17m.

    It is understood West Brom dismissed the Evans bid instantly and have no intention of selling the player, who still has two years remaining on his contract.

    The 29-year-old joined West Brom from Manchester United in a £6m deal two years ago.

    He has made 62 Premier League appearances for the Baggies and, following the departure of Darren Fletcher to Stoke, would be a major contender to take over as captain.
