The Sports Matrix: Monday 13 June 2011

Button wins after dramatic finale

Jenson Button won last night’s Canadian Grand Prix, overtaking Sebastian Vettel on the final lap after a race disrupted by rain. There was a two-hour stoppage after 25 laps, but Vettel looked safe in the lead after the restart until Button caught him.

Stoner climbs to top after victory

RFU: Woodward must be full-time

Interview: Lou Vincent

“I had no idea that negativity was creeping more and more into my life until I was empty, until I was totally gone. I had my first child, who I would look at and think, ‘God, what world have I bought you into?’” MORE

McLeish walks out on Birmingham

Alex McLeish resigned as the manager of Birmingham City yesterday, on a day of managerial movement in English football. McLeish quit Birmingham via an email, according to a club statement. By resigning he has forfeited the pay-off to which he would be entitled and so there is little doubt that he has another job to go to. He has been linked with the managerial vacancy at Aston Villa, but might be unpopular with their supporters. He won the League Cup this season but months later was relegated. In other managerial news, Steve McClaren has replaced the sacked Billy Davies as manager of Championship side Nottingham Forest. McClaren returns to English football having managed in the Netherlands and Germany since his sacking as England coach in 2007. MORE

United to finalise £16.5m Jones deal

Manchester United are close to confirming finally the signing of Blackburn’s Phil Jones for £16.5m. United have refused to let Rovers raise the price for the centre-half and, after warding off a late bid by Liverpool, Jones is expected to join the club imminently. MORE

Baltacha wins title in Nottingham

British No 1 Elena Baltacha won the biggest domestic title of her career yesterday. She beat the Czech Republic’s Petra Cetkovska 7-5, 6-3 in the Aegon Challenge in Nottingham. “It’s great to win a title this big, especially playing at home,” she said. MORE
