Frothy talk of new generation of England footballers doesn’t add up — It was an advertisement for the Premier League that could have been scripted in Peter Scudamore's office. Velvet-plaited football, goals, a late twist: Liverpool's see-sawing thriller against Spurs pretty much had it all. But what really stood out was the sheer number of young players.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson breaks British indoor high-jump record — In the arena where Jessica Ennis-Hill is preparing for her comeback, the next generation of British heptathletes showed they are ready to grab her mantle.
