Jessica Ennis-Hill wants 2011 silver medal upgrade after Tatyana Chernova ban — Jessica Ennis-Hill has appealed to the International Association of Athletics Federations to upgrade her silver medal from the 2011 world championships in Daegu to gold following her Russian rival Tatyana Chernova's positive drug test in January.

Jessica Ennis-Hill: this is my hardest challenge ever. My life is so different now — After the birth, the rebirth. Jessica Ennis-Hill has not competitively hurled, hopped or hurdled for nearly for two years because of injuries, pregnancy and the arrival of her son, Reggie. As she prepares for her comeback the Olympic heptathlon champion says that while motherhood has changed her, delighted her - and, yes, exhausted her - it has not softened her competitive edge.

Jessica Ennis-Hill announces she will compete at July’s Anniversary Games — Jessica Ennis-Hill has announced that she will return to the Olympic Stadium, the scene of her heptathlon gold medal triumph at London 2012, to compete in this summer's Anniversary Games.

Alan Pardew deserves credit, and not just for revival at Crystal Palace — So, Alan Pardew must be reflecting after the 4-1 thumping of Sunderland, this is what it feels like to be accepted. Loved, even. Your fans worshipping you with sun-kissed oratorios. Your players swallowing your percolation of managerial nous and management speak. And your team soaring up the league, from the relegation zone to the outskirts of the top 10.

Boat race viewing figures delight BBC as they average more than five million — The BBC say they were delighted with provisional figures that suggest the first women's boat race to be broadcast live on TV was watched by nearly five million people. Saturday's race, which was won by Oxford by 6 1/2 lengths from Cambridge, was watched by 4.8 million people, with 6.2 million tuning in to watch the men's boat race, also won by Oxford by 6 1/2 lengths, an hour later.

Oxford’s women row into boat race history — It was a historic day, when the women's boat race was staged over the same stretch of the Thames as the men for the first time - and also broadcast live for the first time. So it was appropriate that the winning Oxford boat was called Catalyst.

Why football’s talent ID needs more than a calendar and a ruler — A few days ago James Bunce, the head of sport science at the Premier League, asked this simple question to a roomful of coaches: what chance does an under-nine who joins a Premier League club's academy have of graduating to its first team?

Mike Ford turns to rugby league’s chaos theory to fine-tune Bath’s attack — "We were concentrating on chaos attack," says Mike Ford, a glint in the Bath coach's eye, as he explains why his players spent two days training with Wigan's rugby league squad in midweek. "That's an attack from a turnover or when the opponents kick the ball to you - and rugby league does it better than anyone."

Claudia Fragapane hopes to floor rival gymnasts at British championships — Only seven months have passed since Claudia Fragapane cartwheeled into the nation's hearts at the Commonwealth Games - her tiny 4ft 6in frame twirling like a wand through each routine; her victory smiles carrying enough wattage to light up Glasgow - by winning four artistic gymnastic gold medals.

Mo Farah’s half-marathon record is not European claims former athlete — The Spaniard who lost his European half-marathon record to Mo Farah on Sunday says that what Farah has broken "is the record for Somalia". Fabian Roncero, who held the previous European record for 13.1 miles before Farah broke it by 20 seconds in winning the Lisbon half marathon in 59min 32sec, also claimed that none of Farah's European records from the 1500m to the half-marathon should be considered valid.

@OmarChaudhuri Indeed! And remember Liverpool had signed Craig Johnson the year before for £600,000. £400,000 for Platini - what a bargain!
