Australia have retained the Ashes after beating England by 185 runs at Old Trafford in the fourth Test with Joe Root crediting rival batsman Steve Smith for costing the hosts the Urn. Smith, who made 211 and 82 in the match as he continued his prolific series where he has now made 671 runs at an average of 134.2 with three centuries and two half-centuries. The victory was a convincing one but England's spirit cannot be criticised as they fought until the final hour in their attempt to save the Test, but the tourists lead the five Test series 2-1 heading into the final test at The Oval as they look to win the series on English soil for the first time since 2001. #Ashes #Cricket Subscribe to Guardian Sport ► bit.ly/GDNSport The scary thing is Steve Smith’s getting better, says Tim Paine ► www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/sep/08/scary-thing-steve-smith-getting-better-steve-smith Support the Guardian ► support.theguardian.com/contribute Today in Focus podcast ► www.theguardian.com/news/series/todayinfocus The Guardian ► www.theguardian.com/sport The Guardian IT-videos network: The Guardian ► it-videos.org/u/theguardian Guardian News ► is.gd/guardianwires Owen Jones talks ► bit.ly/subsowenjones Guardian Football ► is.gd/guardianfootball Guardian Culture ► is.gd/guardianculture

Jofra Archer believes the England cricket team have "planted a few seeds of doubt" in the minds of Australia's players with their incredible win at Headingley. Asked on Wednesday if the momentum is now with England going into the fourth Test, paceman Archer said: "We don't have to be optimists. I think so." England's attack looks likely to be bolstered by the return of record wicket-taker Jimmy Anderson following injury. Archer, who has already claimed 13 wickets in the series, said Anderson is "a world-class bowler and it only takes a little bit of Jimmy magic to end an innings."

In a game thought to date back to the 12th century, teams of three battle it out in a no-holds-barred combination of mixed martial arts, boxing and wrestling. The aim is to place a heavy leather ball in the opposing team's tyre. The wrestling element is particularly brutal as chokeholds, punching and fighting are all positively encouraged.

Steve Smith became only the fifth Australian to make two centuries in the same Ashes test as another imperious, near-perfect innings on Sunday put a blunt England attack to the sword and left them on the brink of defeat in the Ashes opener at Edgbaston. On his return to the test arena for the first time in 16 months, there was some doubt howSmith would fare against England. But within two innings Smith's back-to-back centuries had helped Australia set England a daunting 398 runs to win the Ashes opener, the 30-year-old moving level with Steve Waugh on 10 Ashes tons but from just over half the number of tests and innings.

Tiger Woods has shrugged off concerns about his lack of golf heading into this week's British Open, saying he needs to carefully manage the remaining years of his career. Woods said his Masters victory in April took a lot out of him and he went on a two-week family vacation in Thailand after finishing tied for 21st at the US Open last month. In a news conference ahead of the Open, the 15-times major champion also joked about Brooks Koepka ignoring his request for a practice round, and when asked if he had sampled the local beer in Portrush he laughed and hinted he had sampled too much in the past.

Eoin Morgan said he never thought he could shatter a six-hitting record or blast a century with a strike rate of over 200 after pulling off both in England's victory over Afghanistan in the World Cup group stage. England's captain clobbered 17 sixes, one more than the previous record shared by India's Rohit Sharma, West Indies' Chris Gayle and South African AB de Villiers. 'Never, never have I ever thought I could play a knock like that. I'm delighted that I have,' Morgan told a news conference after his career-best 148 earned him the man-of-the-match award. England beat Afghanistan by 150 runs at Cricket World Cup - as it happened
Toronto Raptors' victory parade marred by shooting and stampede
Toronto Raptors' victory parade marred by shooting and stampede
2 mesi fa
Almost two million people cheered the NBA champions Toronto Raptors in a victory celebration that was marred after four people were shot during the parade. Police said none of the injuries were life-threatening, and added that three arrests have been made and two guns recovered in the aftermath of the incident. The shots were fired during the victory speeches causing hundreds of people to scatter for cover, but Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau insisted: 'We won’t let this act of violence take away from the spirit of the parade.' The Raptors victory beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA finals last week to become the first non-US team to claim the championship.

Gary Woodland holds off Koepka and Rose to win first major at US Open
Gary Woodland holds off Koepka and Rose to win first major at US Open
3 mesi fa
Gary Woodland held his nerve to claim his first major with a three-shot victory at the US Open on Sunday, bringing Brooks Koepka's two-year reign to an end. Woodland had not managed a top-10 finish in his first 27 majors before last year's PGA Championship, where he tied for sixth, but he handled the final round with the composure of someone who had been playing for golf's biggest prizes his entire career. Ending his round in style with a birdie at the last, Woodland carded a two-under 69 to keep Koepka from becoming the first man in more than a century to sweep three straight US Opens.

Tyson Fury buoyant after destruction of Tom Schwarz: 'Deontay Wilder is coming'
3 mesi fa
Tyson Fury has set his sights on a lucrative rematch with Deontay Wilder after producing a brutal display in his first Las Vegas fight to stop the previously undefeated heavyweight Tom Schwarz in only the second round. In his first outing since his draw with Wilder in December, Fury strode into the ring with Living in America blaring from the speakers on a night he described as his 'coming out party' in the US. Following the victory, Fury also said that his boxing style is 'kryptonite for anybody' and suggested that Anthony Joshua 'looked like he didn't want to be in there' when he lost to Andy Ruiz Jr earlier this month.

French open is the HARDEST grand slam to win, it's the toughest physically, mentally and one where you need the best overall game. Even the greatest ever tennis players ever struggled to win the French Open... Federer (1), Djokovic (1), Sampras (0), Laver (1), Lendl (3), Connors (0), McEnroe (0), Agassi (1)... Borg is the only other to have won 6 and no one have won more than 3 and Nadal have won it 12 times... It's just a ridiculous achievement, an achievement that NO ONE will beat, that's 100% for certain. Who's the greatest? It's no longer a debate. Federer for years had the "most grand slams" advantage to his argument now it's 19v20, Nadal will beat Federer's record without a shadow of a doubt, head2head Nadal have always been the better player between the two, no question. Federer was lucky he's 5 years older than Nadal, if they were the same age, Federer wouldn't even be part of the conversation, as he would have alot less grand slams. On the other hand, Djokovic will probably beat BOTH players in the grand slam count... but no one talks about him.

Nadal lost the match even before the match began. He could have put the pressure on Djocovic by playing key points well. He didnt do that. Once Djocovic understood that Nadal is no more a threat ge started playing even better. Nadal dipped his level further. That match was a shock to me. Not because he lost it but the way he lost it. Anyway he recovered well from that shock and won another two slams this year.

Margret Court hat meinen vollen Respekt. Sie spricht einfach die Sachen aus,die in unserer verqueren, auf dem Kopf stehen Gesellschaft mittlerweile als "Normal" angesehen werden. Homosexualität ist eben nicht "Normal", sondern eine Randerscheinung, als solche sollte Sie auch gesehen werden.Das Randerscheinungen durch bestimmten Kreisen gehypt und überhöht werden, ändert nichts daran, dass es Randerscheinungen bleiben. Eben auch im Interesse unserer Kinder, die mit dieser Art des elterlichen Zusammenlebens verständlicher- und richtigerweise vollkommen überfordert sind. Dies hat nicht mit "Steinzeit" Denken oder sonstigen "veralteten" Ansichten zu tun, sondern einfach mit der Tatsache, das Gott zwei Geschlechter geschaffen hat und genau dies eben auch seinen Sinn hat.
