  5. Some may call it 'maternity leave'...

    ...Serena Williams calls it, 'more practice time'.

    By our calculations, she is around eight months pregnant but Williams doesn't look like she is keen to put her feet up just yet.

    "Wimbledon got me like: Easy standing drills this morning. Go easy" she says...

    What is more, even while growing a human, she makes it look easy. What a woman.

  6. The art of transfer announcements


    Ian Bett: Make them announce transfers using a "guess who" type board. Does this person currently play in red etc.

    Yes, Ian! The best suggestion so far. Can we beat it? We're on to something here people.

    guess who game
  7. Now this is sportsmanship...


    World number one Andy Murray may have knocked him out of Wimbledon in straight sets earlier, but 20-year-old lucky loser Alexander Bublik has thanked his opponent in an adorable post on Instagram:

    Road Cycling

    Tour de France

    The riders have finally made it into France.

    Audun Le Tiche is the town on the border and the riders are zipping through at a furious pace - around 52km/h or 30mp/h if you prefer.

    The lead is still around 90 seconds but there are two little hills to negotiate.

    The Cote de Villers-la-Montagne is the first. A category four climb. The finish is up the category three Cote des Religieuses in Longwy.

    Follow the stage here.

  9. The art of transfer announcements


    Inside The Far Post: If any club signs Mbappe this summer, they have to announce it by hiring Hanson for a one-off one-song concert.


  10. Everton sign Sandro


    Strangely enough, we are talking about how football clubs choose to announce new signing...

    This is how Everton told us Sandro was their player:

    All I'm saying is, there is a lucky so-and-so who works at Everton, who got to fly in a private jet holding a video camera just for that thumbs up.

    If that's not a jammy job, then I don't know what is...

  11. Sandro completes Everton deal


    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer

    Sandro had a superb season with Malaga, scoring 14 goals in La Liga having joined them from Barcelona last summer.

    "This is a big step in my career," Sandro told EvertonTV. "Everton is the ideal club for me, I've got the ideal manager who is going to keep giving me the confidence to improve my game."

  12. BreakingEverton sign Sandro

    Ronald Koeman's side have met the £5.2m buy-out clause for the Spain Under-21 international.

  13. King wary of Spurs move?

    Latest gossip

    Joshua King

    Joshua King scored 16 goals for Bournemouth last season and is in demand but things may not be as simple as pack up your things and move to a Champions League club.

    The Norwegian is reportedly unsure about joining Tottenham as he doesn't want to play second fiddle to Harry Kane.

    Fair enough, I say!

  14. 'Take a bow!' Verdasco lobs 6ft 8in Anderson

  15. Post update

    And that victory for Venus (whose full name I have just found out is Venus Ebony Starr Williams) means Rafael Nadal is out on Court One.

    Fresh from winning a 10th French Open last month, the Spaniard has already broken his opponent John Millman's serve.

  16. Williams through at SW19

    Wimbledon 2017

    Venus Williams

    Venus Williams is through to the second round of Wimbledon following a 7-6 (9-7) 6-4 victory over Elise Mertens.

    The five-time champion, 37, needed five set points before taking the first set tie-break against the 21-year-old Belgian, playing her first Wimbledon.

    A rain delay on Court One then halted the progress of the American 10th seed as she led 5-3 in the second set.

    Mertens held serve after the resumption but Williams produced an emphatic service game to secure victory.

  17. Post update

    And Murray isn't the only big name into round two...

  18. BreakingGame, set and match: Andy Murray eases into Wimbledon second round

    *Murray 6-1 6-4 5-2 Bublik


    It took him an hour and 44 minutes (not including an hour and 45 minutes of rain delays) and Andy Murray is through to the second round of Wimbledon.

    The World number one beat lucky loser Alexander Bublik 6-1 6-4 6-2 and will face Dustin Brown in the second round.

  19. The art of announcing a transfer


    Ed Allen: Transfer announcements should be done in the style of catchphrase or say what you see pics like on big fat quiz of the year.

    Excellent suggestion Ed. You get even better marks if you create us an example of a past or future transfer?

    I think club's should start revealing their signings A Question of Sport's Mystery Guest style. The transfer is only completed if the fans guess correctly.

  20. GB's curling skip Murdoch retires

    Winter Sports

    David Murdoch

    Olympic medallist David Murdoch is retiring from competition to take up a coaching role at British Curling.

    The 39-year-old skipped Great Britain to silver at Sochi 2014 and was disappointed to be overlooked for next year's Winter Games in South Korea.

    Murdoch is a two-time world champion with Scotland and won three European titles.

    "After the announcement regarding Pyeongchang I had to think about what would come next," he said.
