World Rugby’s zero tolerance on head injuries is not just a pipe dream — Whenever a fresh study on the dangers of concussion in sport hits the headlines it reminds me of the ominous prophecy from Malcolm Gladwell: that playing American football will one day become akin to joining the army. "We will disclose the risks and dare people to play," he warned in 2013.

Wada fears for future as Olympic chiefs take aim over Russia’s ban at Rio 2016 — Fears are growing for the future of the World Anti-Doping Agency amid concerns that the International Olympic Committee wants to neuter, sideline or even replace it as punishment for calling for a blanket ban on Russian athletes at the Rio Olympics

Brownlee brotherly moment underlines why they are world’s best triathletes — It took barely hours for the image to become an instant sporting classic. One moment Jonny Brownlee is striding to victory in the final World Triathlon Series race of the season, about to become world champion for the second time; the next his legs buckle beneath him as if punched by an invisible haymaker.

Fancy Bears expected to leak names of another 48 British Olympians with TUEs — The British Olympic Association is bracing itself for Russian hackers to leak the names of another 48 Team GB athletes who competed in Rio having held a current - or previously held - therapeutic use exemption (TUE), allowing them to use medication on the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited list

What is a TUE? 11 key questions on the Fancy Bears Wada leaks — The Russian cyber-espionage group Fancy Bears hacked into the World Anti-Doping Agency's Anti-Doping Administration and Management System (Adams) database - where all athletes' laboratory results, anti-doping rule violations and therapeutic use exemption (TUE) authorisations are stored - and has since published the TUEs of 29 athletes, including Serena Williams, Simone Biles, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome.

Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins targeted in Wada hacking scandal — Five British athletes, include Tour de France winning cyclists Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins, are among the latest batch of names alleged to have taken banned substances for which they had received a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) by a group of Russian hackers

Wada hacking scandal: debate turns to the use of powerful legal drugs — First came the accusations, then the rebuttals. Now it is the questions and insinuations. On Tuesday the hacking group Fancy Bears posted confidential medical records of Serena and Venus Williams and the gymnast Simone Biles, including the banned substances for which they had a therapeutic use exemption (TUE).

Gennady Golovkin revives memories of great Randolph Turpin — Even during Kell Brook's desperate final stand against Gennady Golovkin on Saturday night, when it was clear his reddened body was spent and staggering backwards, he was able to perform one last trick. For despite struggling to paw or claw meekly at his opponent, he somehow retained enough rugged bloody-mindedness to stay upright as howitzers rattled into his skin and shattered bone.

Kell Brook’s brave title bid ended by fearsome champion Gennady Golovkin — Kell Brook's audacious bid to climb two weight divisions and dethrone the most fearsome puncher in boxing came to a brave but bloody end when his trainer Dominic Ingle threw in the towel after five brutal rounds against the undisputed middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin.

Kell Brook confident of beating the odds against big-punching Gennady Golovkin — Moments after Kell Brook's muscular frame had weighed in on the button of the middleweight limit for his audience with the most fearsome puncher in boxing, he promised viewers to expect "fireworks, drama, power and speed all rolled into one" in his fight against Gennady Golovkin on Saturday night.
