England women fall short in final

England's women failed in their bid to win the World Twenty20 title, losing by four runs to Australia. Charlotte Edwards' side, who had lost only two of their last 30 matches prior to the final, put on 138-9 while chasing 143 to win. MORE

Adkins worried by Saints' defending

Jose Fonte scored twice, including a late equaliser, as Southampton held Fulham to a 2-2 draw at St Mary's. Saints manager Nigel Adkins, whose side have shipped 20 goals in seven games, said: "We have conceded too many goals. We have to defend as a team." MORE

West Indies stroll to World T20 title

West Indies won their first world title since 1979, beating Sri Lanka by 36 runs in the World T20 final in Colombo yesterday. Marlon Samuels hit six sixes in his 56-ball 78 to drag his side to 137-6, before the hosts were bowled out for 101. MORE

Henson in London Welsh debut loss

Gavin Henson's first start for London Welsh was a disappointing one, as Charlie Hodgson scored all of Saracens' points in a 28-23 win at Kassam Stadium, leaving Welsh 10th in the Premiership. MORE

Wasps just edge narrow encounter

Coach Richard Hill apologised to spectators for a lack of entertainment as his Worcester side lost 10-6 at London Wasps. "Sorry to subject you to that s***e," said Hill, whose Warriors dropped to ninth in the Aviva Premiership. MORE

Celtic return to summit with win

Georgios Samaras fired his second match-winning goal of the week in Celtic's 1-0 win over Hearts. Samaras shot past Peter Enckelman after Kris Commons' pass, sending Celtic back to the top of the Scottish Premier League. MORE

Liverpool struggle again at Anfield

The woodwork was hit four times by Liverpool yesterday as Brendan Rodgers' struggles continued with a 0-0 draw against Stoke. Raheem Sterling, Daniel Agger, Luis Suarez and Martin Skrtel all came close for the home side, who sit in 14th with just one league win. MORE

Vettel strolls as Webber fumes

Sebastian Vettel moved to within four points of the top of the world championship after winning the Japanese Grand Prix. Romain Grosjean collided with an angry Mark Webber, ending the Australian's race. "He needs to have a look at himself," said Webber. MORE

Van Persie could face FA charge for elbowing Cabaye

Robin Van Persie is facing the possibility of a Football Association charge after being accused of elbowing the Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye in the face during Manchester United's 3-0 win at St James' Park yesterday.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has called for action to be taken after Cabaye was left holding his face in the 84th minute as the pair clashed off the ball.

"He's looked at Yohan and he's elbowed him," said Pardew of Van Persie, right. "That needs to be looked at. There was a bit of unsavouriness in the game."

The FA will review the situation after they have received the report from referee Howard Webb, who appeared to tell Cabaye that he had not seen the incident.

Goals from Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra and Tom Cleverley took the visitors up to second in the Premier League.

Sir Alex Ferguson, the Manchester United manager, said: "There was concentration and determination, everything you want to see in a team that's going to win." MORE

Spurs too strong for wasteful Villa

Tottenham claimed their fourth straight Premier League victory as goals from Steven Caulker and Aaron Lennon were enough to see off Aston Villa. Brad Friedel was dropped for the match, ending his run of over eight years without missing a Premier League game. MORE
