Wenger to sign new Arsenal deal

Djokovic defeats Nadal in Italy

Novak Djokovic won his third Italian Open title yesterday, defeating the defending champion and world No 1 Rafael Nadal 4-6, 6-3, 6-3. The win gives the Serb momentum for the French Open, having now won four matches in a row against Nadal.

Porous Wasps earn narrow advantage

London Wasps will take a one-point lead into the second leg of their European Rugby Champions Cup play-off after beating Stade Français 30-29 at Adams Park. Andy Goode’s last-minute penalty gave Wasps the win, but they defended poorly.

Opinion: Sam Wallace

One of the best things about being Manchester City in 2014? Being as rich as they are means they will not lose another big star, as when Shaun Wright-Phillips left to join Chelsea in 2005.

Cambridge back in Football League

Cambridge sealed their return to the Football League for the first time in nine years by beating Gateshead 2-1 in the Conference Premier final. Liam Hughes and Ryan Donaldson put Cambridge 2-0 up while Jack Lester’s late goal gave Gateshead hope, but it proved in vain.
