Wolves 4-3 Leicester City: Diogo Jota hat-trick as hosts snatch win in thriller

Sunday 14:29 GMT

Diogo Jota completed a hat-trick in injury time to snatch a thrilling victory for Wolves, who punished a dire Leicester defensive display to increase the pressure on Foxes boss Claude Puel.

Wolves, who beat Leicester 4-3 the last time this fixture was played in the top flight at Molineux in 2003, had other ideas and, in a chaotic finish, Jota won it with Leicester again a mess at the back. Puel is the favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post but his side came into the fixture with three wins from their past five league games.

Mark Rylance takes on Shakespeare establishment in authorship row

Sunday 01:29 GMT

For decades Sir Mark Rylance has been raising doubts over whether William Shakespeare wrote all the plays and poetry that bear his name.

In particular, he attacks the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, the charity that oversees Shakespeare heritage sites in Stratford-upon-Avon. In a foreword for a forthcoming book on the claims, Rylance writes: “Time will celebrate those who were not daunted by the fearmongering of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and its supporters in the media and academia.

Friday 23:40 GMT

Bernard Tomic has called Australia Davis Cup captain Lleyton Hewitt a "liar" for saying he had been threatened "physically" and "blackmailed" by him. Hewitt, 37, said he and "close-knit family" had received threats directly from the world number 88 over the past "year and a half".

Tomic claimed there was a "conflict of interests" in Hewitt's Davis Cup team selections and demanded he was removed from the role.

NFL championship round predictions: Saints slay Rams, Patriots stumble

Friday 23:40 GMT

The usually reliable Lutz, in fact, nearly found himself the Saints’ fall guy with his fourth-quarter miss against the Eagles, but the Saints were able to hold on to win 20-14.

That’s not going to work against a much tougher opponent in the Rams, who dominated in the first half against Dallas, going up 20-3 on their way to a 30-22 victory. The Saints had to crawl out of a 14-0 hole against the Philadelphia Eagles last week.

Best supportive wife: how female characters fare at the Oscars

Saturday 02:25 GMT

It is longtime Oscar bridesmaid Amy Adams who makes a stealth lunge for win by playing a less wholesome variant on the supportive wife figure, or what one might call the Lady Macbeth model: the woman who stands by her morally dubious man by getting her own hands a little dirty.

Jennifer Connelly won gold as Alicia Nash, long-suffering wife of paranoid schizophrenic Nobel laureate John Nash, in Ron Howard’s dully sanitised A Beautiful Mind.

With his ‘spygate’ PowerPoint, Marcelo Bielsa has enhanced his legend

Friday 06:04 GMT

Somehow, from an accusation of espionage, Bielsa emerges as somebody not only of intelligence and diligence but of great humility and integrity.

The point is not the data or the detail or even the fact that Bielsa, rather than leaving such matters to teams of analysts, is so obviously personally engaged in such analysis. It’s that he decided the best way to deal with the ridiculous spectacle of the English media in one of its periodical fits of morality was a 70-minute PowerPoint presentation.

Kirsten Gillibrand plays Colbert card but still gets little 2020 attention

Friday 06:04 GMT

It's pretty obvious why Kirsten Gillibrand chose to make her presidential announcement by holding hands with Stephen Colbert.

It's that Gillibrand was hoping to break through the static of a soon-to-be-crowded 2020 field in the midst of a government shutdown. Even with the comedian's help, the New York senator's exploratory committee didn't make the front page of her home-state Times.

Manchester United need to use head not heart over future of Solskjær

Friday 16:20 GMT

I’ve been intrigued to see the reaction to Manchester United’s win against Spurs at the weekend, with lots of supporters and pundits already making a case for why Ole Gunnar Solskjær should be given the job full-time.

Of course, Solskjær more than deserves to be considered but I believe that the decision of the board to appoint the next Manchester United manager cannot be made based on emotion and short-term feelgood nostalgia of a former player taking the team back to the “good old days”.

Criminals using ‘Fortnite’ to launder money 'with relative impunity': report

Saturday 08:05 GMT

“Criminals are executing carding fraud and getting money in and out of the Fortnite system with relative impunity,” said Benjamin Preminger, a senior intelligence analyst at Sixgill. “Threat actors [a malicious person or entity] are scoffing at Epic Games’ weak security measures, saying that the company doesn’t seem to care about players defrauding the system and purchasing discounted V-bucks… This directly touches on the ability of threat actors to launder money through the game.” he continued.

Enes Kanter's concerns about potential assassination over political views taken 'very seriously' by NBA

Friday 23:40 GMT

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver is standing by New York Knicks forward Enes Kanter and his decision not to travel to London for an international game over fears for the player's own safety.

Talking to reporters ahead of Thursday’s matchup against the Washington Wizards, Silver said he was taking every threat against Kanter seriously and that his main concern was “the safety and security of our players.” “There are significant issues that he is dealing with, and I recognize that for the NBA, by virtue of the fact that we’re a global business, we have to pay a lot of attention to those issues as well,” he said.

Garbiñe Muguruza beats Johanna Konta in late-night finish to end British hopes

Friday 16:20 GMT

Johanna Konta became the last of eight British players to leave the 2019 Australian Open, and in the most bizarre circumstances, sharing the record for the latest ever start to a grand slam final match with her opponent, Garbiñe Muguruza.

The prize for the winner will be a fourth-round shot at either the top seed Simona Halep, who had to dig deep to get past the Russian-born American, Sofie Kenin, or Serena’s sister, Venus, who finished strongly against Alizé Cornet, bagelling the French player in the third set.
