Tour de France 2015: Chris Froome keen to channel Team Sky’s positive energy — As Sky prepare to announce their nine-man team of riders for the Tour de France on Monday, Chris Froome has identified the squad's "British core" as a major positive in his attempt to win the race for the second time in three years.

Chris Froome: ‘It’s building up to be an epic Tour de France battle’ — Chris Froome has likened the first nine stages of this year's Tour de France to a series of one-day Classic races and suggested the scramble to the podium will not begin in earnest until it enters the mountains in the south of France.

Chris Froome admits missed drug test and blames zealous hotel staff — Chris Froome has admitted missing a drugs test while on holiday earlier this year, in what the 2013 Tour de France winner described as "a hugely frustrating situation".

Royal Ascot 2015: day four - live! — The Ryan Moore Show, which features a couple of dozen other top-flight jockeys in minor walk-on roles, seems likely to extend its run by at least one more afternoon at Royal Ascot today.

Royal Ascot 2015: day three - live! — It feels as though every racecourse with a winning post has a Ladies' Day these days, and why not? The concept has removed the need for a marketing department at most tracks, since you need only to rebrand a humdrum fixture outside December or January as Ladies' Day, announce a "best dressed" competition and like magic, it automatically seems to put at least 50 per cent on the gate.

Royal Ascot 2015: day two - live! — Goldream at 20-1 was the only winner on the first day at Royal Ascot to start at a double-figure price, but it could get rather messier for the punters this afternoon with the 30-runner Royal Hunt Cup among the attractions that will prove very difficult to resist.

Royal Ascot 2015: day one - live! — Confirmation that one of the week's star attractions will miss the meeting is not an ideal way to start Royal Ascot, but the news that California Chrome, America's Horse of the Year in 2014, is out of tomorrow's Prince of Wales's Stakes was all but inevitable after it emerged that he was lame on Monday evening.

The Rumour Mill: Newcastle or Sunderland to sign Patrick Bamford? — Opinion is divided on whether Arsenal can mount a serious title challenge with Olivier Giroud as their first-choice centre forward, with some cynics suggesting the Frenchman is a bit of a flat track bully who doesn't have the wherewithal to deliver against the very best defences.

Football could beat the loan sharks if supporters gave voice to minnows — Not for the first time in post-mortems conducted by writers and readers of the Guardian following the English football season's conclusion, the loan system was again earmarked as one of many areas in need of an urgent reform.

The Derby 2015 - live! — It is a beautiful day at Epsom, albeit with a stiffish breeze blowing across the course from left to right on the way from Tattenham Corner to the line.
