How FC Midtjylland took the analytical route towards the Champions League — There is a story they tell at FC Midtjylland, the small Danish club that went from near-bankruptcy to lifting their first Superliga title in one exhilarating headrush of a season, which has echoes of Hans Christian Andersen. Two centuries ago there were wolves living in the Jutland peninsula, which is why there is a red wolf on the club's badge.

@mikhail_UG04 V.little on doping?! Check out my author page for June…. Guardian has plenty on match fixing too

End of Usain Bolt era is two years away but looms large over athletics — No athlete in history has earned as much per second as Usain Bolt but the long line of punters queueing out of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for last-minute tickets on a grotty, sodden Friday night suggested he was worth his fee, whatever it was (the whispers on the athletics circuit, where everyone is paid in dollars, start at $100,000 and rise steeply thereafter).

Usada grill Mo Farah about Alberto Salazar with British Athletics next — Officials from the United States Anti-Doping agency will speak to senior figures in British Athletics this week after questioning Mo Farah for five hours about his coach Alberto Salazar on Saturday morning.

Mo Farah heads for the hills after 3,000m win at the Olympic Stadium — While Greg Rutherford and Jessica Ennis-Hill bathed in the crowd's support in the Anniversary Games at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday Mo Farah, the third British gold medallist on Super Saturday at London 2012, was already on a plane to the Pyrenees.

Nijel Amos claims 800m victory against Olympic champion David Rudisha — The 800m was once such a simple puzzle for David Rudisha to solve. It involved gliding into the lead from the blocks, shaking off opponents as smoothly as dust from silk and the crowds basking in his athletic genius. Which made it all the more painful to watch the great Kenyan scratching his head after defeat at the Anniversary Games.

Finally, another piece from the Observer: on David Rudisha's defeat to Nijel Amos. He's now lost six in a row to him…

Jessica Ennis-Hill sets sights on Beijing and then Rio Olympics — When one listened to Jessica Ennis-Hill, her face lit up after three season's bests at the Anniversary Games in two days, pronouncing that she was "incredibly happy" with her performances, it seemed safe to assume that her participation at next month's world championships in Beijing was merely a matter of giving the nod to the selectors, and getting her visa to China.

Another Observer piece: Jessica Ennis-Hill sets 3 season’s bests in Anniversary Games - but will she go to Beijing?

Shara Proctor sets British long jump record to outshine Greg Rutherford — Greg Rutherford, the Olympic long jump champion in 2012, had to settle for third place on his return to the stadium that transformed him into a household name, and was upstaged by Shara Proctor, who set a British women's record. Rutherford was not at his best. His legs looked heavy.

Mo Farah enjoys ‘amazing’ homecoming with 3,000m Anniversary Games win — For once Mo Farah was merely good rather than extraordinary - and for once he did not mind a jot. Britain's 5,000m and 10,000m Olympic and world champion had planned to take down Dave Moorcroft's long-standing 3,000m British record of 7:32.79 - one of the few UK middle-distance records he does not now own - but heavy legs soon persuaded him otherwise.

Usain Bolt lights up Anniversary Games with 100m victory in 9.87sec — It took 41 strides and 9.87sec for Usain Bolt to shout to the world what his camp have been quietly saying all summer: the Jamaican is back and ready to slug it out with Justin Gatlin at next month's world championships in Beijing.
