Kevin Mitchell Barehanded Catch Against Ozzie Smith! "San Francisco Giants" — Kevin Mitchell of the San Francisco Giants makes one of the greatest catches in baseball history with his famous barehanded play off the bat of Ozzie Smith!

Manny Pacquiao: ‘I changed when I heard the voice of God’ — It is disconcerting to stand a foot away from Manny Pacquiao's soft brown eyes - which are no more than a couple of feet from his hard brown fists - and hear him say, without any apparent duplicity, that God has spoken to him personally, how he has seen "the end of time".

Unpredictable Phil Mickelson shows ruthless side again to sting Watson — In making what he regarded as a gesture of old-fashioned goodwill, Sam Ryder said before the launch of his eponymous competition in 1927: "I trust that the effect of this match will be to influence a cordial, friendly and peaceful feeling through the whole civilised world."

Ryder Cup 2014 review: our writers’ best player, match, highs and lows — Ewan Murray Justin Rose. He has struggled at times to build on the success of the US Open win at Merion in 2013 but Rose played like a major champion and a genuine leader in the European team. Owen Gibson Justin Rose.

Rory McIlroy’s singles win set tone for Europe Ryder Cup victory — Rory McIlroy did not win the Ryder Cup on his own, of course. But his crushing win over Rickie Fowler, the first of four needed in the closing round of singles on the final day, was the perfect opening movement to a glorious symphony of victory, Europe's eighth in 10 years over the United States.

Justin Rose proves Europe’s backbone with a superb display against USA — It must be something to be rueful about missing an eight-foot putt among seven birdies in a record-breaking performance in the Ryder Cup, but that was Justin Rose's hard-headed assessment when he looked back on probably the finest round of golf in his entire career.

Rory McIlroy and Sergio García turn round disappointing defeat — The Ryder Cup is like a bar-room brawl: a fellow minding his own business can get knocked down yet have several opportunities, if he so chooses, to get back into the fray in another part of the entertainment, which pretty much describes Rory McIlroy's Friday.

Britain’s Paul Smith pits passion against Arthur Abraham’s world title — It is highly unlikely in the time remaining on Paul Smith's boxing clock that he will crash the top-20 of British fighters of his era.

Alex Salmond on unity and Ode to Joy: bring on the glory of Gleneagles — Alex Salmond must have dreamed of this day. There he stood, chest out, belly too, trouser belt doing its 45-degree job, jokes at the ready, as he addressed his freshly freed Scottish slaves on a suitably cold Caledonian afternoon with all the stentorian presence a proud and victorious leader can muster, staring into the eyes of the visiting Americans to remind them where their true golfing heritage lay.
