  4. More on "illegal approaches" for Mbappe

    Football

    Kylian Mbappe

    Monaco said in a statement that "important European clubs" have made contact with Kylian Mbappe without permission.

    The Ligue 1 club says it may ask world governing body Fifa and the French league to consider disciplinary action.

    Mbappe scored 26 goals in 44 appearances for Monaco last season as they won Ligue 1 for the first time in 17 years and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

    Monaco claim clubs have breached regulations of both Fifa and the Ligue de Football Professionnel.

    Fifa rules state: "A club intending to conclude a contract with a professional must inform the player's current club in writing before entering into negotiations with him."

  5. Lacrosse World Cup semi-final: Canada v Australia

    Video caption: Women's Lacrosse World Cup: Five things you may not know

    We are at the semi-final stage of the Women's Lacrosse World Cup and today we have coverage of Canada v Australia and USA v England.

    You can watch live here.

    If you have never watched or played lacrosse before, you are in for a treat.

    It is a fast-paced, high-intensity game that has grown in popularity over the past 10 years in the UK and is now the fourth most popular sport in the university sector.

    Although men's and women's lacrosse differ slightly - with one being full contact and the other being limited - the object of the game is the same: hit the back of the net!

    While women's lacrosse is not full-contact like the men's game, it is still played at a ferocious pace.... and accidents do happen.

  6. Monaco accuse clubs of making illegal approaches for Mbappe

    Kylian Mbappe

    Monaco have accused some of Europe's top clubs of making illegal approaches for teenage striker Kylian Mbappe.

    The 18-year-old has been linked with a big-money summer move to a number of Premier League sides, as well as other leading clubs across Europe.

    Monaco said in a statement that "important European clubs" have made contact with Mbappe without permission.

    Apologies if "Mmmbop" is now in your head. It happens EVERY TIME to me too....

    It's like 'The Game'.

    More apologies.
