Jessica Ennis-Hill ready for fight to recapture greatness — Jessica Ennis-Hill is confident she can recapture her greatness as she prepares to return to competitive action after the birth of her first child, according to the British Athletics performance director, Neil Black. But Black has admitted that it may take until 2016 before the Olympic heptathlon champion returns to her very best.

Premier League given a grim warning by the FA Cup fairytales — It was a weekend for football's frog princes and ugly ducklings, when every fairytale seemed to come true. Bradford's rags-over-riches comeback at Stamford Bridge provided the FA Cup with its greatest Cinderella story for years, but Middlesbrough's surgical giant-slaying of Manchester City will linger in the memory too.

Richard Kilty disqualified for twitch at Glasgow International Match — A frustrated Richard Kilty insisted he would have won - by two metres - if he had not been disqualified for twitching on his blocks before the men's 60m at the Glasgow International Match.

Sara Bayman ready to make Thunder roll in new Netball Superleague season — Anyone who has watched elite netball up close - that manic blur of fast hands and squabbling elbows interspersed with an icy stillness when a goal shooter or attack takes aim - knows how far removed it is from the stereotype of jaunty schoolgirls.

Teesside Tornado Richard Kilty hungry to add to world indoor 60m title — "There's a lot of people gunning for me this year," Richard Kilty says, as he reflects on the 33 strides that changed his life last March. "There is a target on my back. Everyone wants my scalp."

Elise Christie still sheds tears but has no regrets about Sochi calamity — "When something breaks your heart it takes a while to love it again," says Elise Christie with such cascading sadness that, for a moment, you worry that she will become a bit teary - just as she has on so many occasions since a Winter Olympics speed skating silver medal was ripped away from her.

Paula Radcliffe defiant on doping doubts and ready for London Marathon — "It's horrible," says Paula Radcliffe, Britain's greatest marathon runner, staring you straight in the eye. "I get it all the time. People say: 'She couldn't have run 2:15 clean' and I know I can be totally proud. I can't understand how other people who have cheated can stand there and look their competitors and family in the eye."

Basketball’s street cred fuels its fight to become UK’s No2 sport — Even this basketball agnostic enjoyed the syrupy-slick razzmatazz of the NBA's annual trip to London, but while the contest between the New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks was a blowout, the battle to win hearts and minds in Britain strums on. Last week Adam Silver, the NBA's commissioner, put it bluntly.

New York Knicks’ woes continue in London defeat to Milwaukee Bucks — A change of scene for the New York Knicks, but the same depressingly familiar script, strewn with errors, lethargy, and, as their coach Derek Fisher admitted afterwards, "a lack of effort from some players".

Katarina Johnson-Thompson raring to go on return to heptathlon after injury — Katarina Johnson-Thompson says she is raring to return to action six months after a stress reaction in her left foot forced her to miss the Commonwealth Games and European championships and ruined her outdoor season.
