League One Blades reach Wembley

Sheffield United became the first third-tier side to make the last four of the FA Cup in 13 seasons as goals from Ryan Flynn and John Brayford secured a 2-0 win over Charlton. The Blades will face Hull at Wembley next month for a place in the final. MORE

Quickfire treble sends Hull through

Three goals in nine second-half minutes gave Hull a 3-0 FA Cup sixth-round victory over Sunderland as Steve Bruce’s side made the last four for the first time in 84 years. Curtis Davies, David Meyler and Matty Fryatt all found the net against the under-strength visitors. MORE

Britain end World Indoors on a high

Great Britain enjoyed a fine final day at the World Indoor Championships, Katarina Johnson-Thompson leading the way with a silver in the long jump. There was also a silver in the men’s 4x400m, as well bronze in the women’s 4x400m and men’s 800m. MORE

Opinion: Sam Wallace

The best decision would be to stick with Tim Sherwood, the most off-message manager Spurs have ever had. He is raw, but learning quickly. He has a way he wants to play and is not prepared to compromise. MORE

Broad ruled out as England well beaten

England were well beaten in the opening Twenty20 international in Barbados by 27 runs. West Indies posted 170 for 3, Marlon Samuels making 69, while England struggled to 143 for 9. To make matters worse, Stuart Broad has been ruled out for the rest of the tour with a knee injury. MORE
