Vitaly Mutko has said he will step down from his position as Russian deputy Prime Minister and head of next year’s World Cup “if it will be for the best”. Mutko has denied any wrongdoing over the country’s state-sponsored doping programme despite a receiving a lifetime Olympic ban this week. It was claimed on Friday that Fifa ethics committee chairman Cornel Borbely had been investigating Mutko when he was removed from his post in May.
Christmas has come early for James DeGale: just being able to step into the ring on Saturday night is an unthinkable gift after he underwent shoulder surgery in June. The IBF super-middleweight champion has overcome far greater obstacles in the past six months than America’s Caleb Truax, his opponent at the Copper Box Arena in Stratford. But ahead of a fourth defence of his title, the 31-year-old says he feared his ailing body meant his time in the ring was up.
Victory in the $2.1 million Hong Kong Vase event, which the Aidan O'Brien-trained thoroughbred won in 2015, would be a fitting finale for the son of Galileo. The five-year-old is a truly international competitor, having won races on four continents and in seven different countries. It has also earned more than $8 million in prize money over its career.
Olympic skeleton champion Aleksandr Tretiakov stripped off Sochi gold and banned from PyeongChang, so too bronze medallist Elena Nikitina, a recent World Cup winner and rival to Lizzy Yarnold and Laura Deas.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
