FOOTBALL: Hull striker Yannick Sagbo has been banned for two matches for a tweet he sent supporting Nicolas Anelka’s use of the quenelle gesture.
Sagbo admitted the offence and was originally handed a £15,000 fine, warned as to his future conduct and ordered to complete a compulsory education course.
An appeal board upheld a challenge launched by the Football Association and he will now miss the first two games of the season.
FOOTBALL: Holland captain Robin van Persie has warned World champions Spain not to underestimate them in tonight’s opening group B game.
The Dutch lost 1-0 to Spain in the 2010 final and many are tipping them to repeat the feat next month.
But the Manchester United striker feels that Holland should not be overlooked.
“We are also very good so don’t forget that and do not underestimate Holland,” van Persie said.
FOOTBALL: Arsenal striker Kelly Smith has pulled out of the England squad for tomorrow’s World Cup qualifier against Belarus due to a quad strain.
The injury may also mean she misses out on the Ukraine game five days later.
Sitting top of Group Six having won all of their fixtures, England are yet to concede a goal.
Now 35 years old, Smith has won 117 caps and scored 46 goals.
TENNIS: Rafael Nadal lost the opening match of the Gary Weber Open 6-4 6-1 to Dustin Brown, four days after winning the French Open.
The world number one looked to have adjusted well in the first set but Brown, who beat Lleyton Hewitt at Wimbledon last year, broke serve in the 10th game and did not look back.
In the opening five games of the second set, Nadal won just five points and 85th-ranked Brown confidently served out the best win of his life.
