Murray revelling in winning feeling

Andy Murray has admitted his US Open win last summer stopped him feeling ‘like a loser’. “The last year has almost changed my perception of myself,” the Scot said. “When you lose big matches, you’re getting asked why you aren’t winning. It does make you feel a bit like a loser.” MORE

Elmohamady glad for Bruce’s advice

Hull’s Ahmed Elmohamady admits he was glad he took manager Steve Bruce’s advice to drop down to the Championship. “I spoke with Brucey,” the Egyptian said. “But because he is experienced he told me it’s not a risk. It’s good to play football again.” MORE

Isinbayeva fires Russian crowd

Yelena Isinbayeva gave the Moscow crowd something to cheer at the Luzhniki Stadium, the home favourite winning pole vault gold at the World Championships.

Johnson-Thompson out of the medals

A personal best of 6,449 points was still not enough to earn Katarina Johnson-Thompson a medal in the heptathlon at the World Championships. The Briton finished fifth, 28 points off bronze, after coming second in her 800m heat. The Ukrainian Ganna Melnichenko took the gold. MORE

Defending men’s champion Dai Greene could only finish fifth and went out, having struggled with a calf injury. MORE

Gerrard confident Rooney can leave troubles at home

England captain Steven Gerrard expects Wayne Rooney to leave his club worries behind him when he features in tonight’s friendly with Scotland at Wembley. The Manchester United forward, right, has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford all summer, and has barely featured in manager David Moyes’ pre-season plans as he attempts to force a move to Chelsea. “There is a lot of attention on him at the moment because of his club situation,” Gerrard said. “But he has got the chance to get some much-needed minutes under his belt and to play for England, which will be a release for him if you like. I’ve got no doubts Wayne can play well and be a key factor.” MORE

Six of the best for Hodgson’s kids

England Under-21s, under the temporary guidance of Roy Hodgson’, thrashed Scotland 6-0 at Bramall Lane last night, with six different players finding the net.
