n I'm a big fan of Roberto Duran's. I used to respect him. Now I come over here and he makes a big show by disrespecting me. He's fat and lazy, a fat hamburger-eating slob. Hector Camacho, on Roberto Duran, who he fights on 22 June.

n To be fair, it was kamikaze defending. Managers would be dead within six months if every game was like that. Liverpool manager Roy Evans after his side's 4-3 Premiership victory over Newcastle.

n I am appalled by the criticism. These people should remember this club was heading for the old Third Division when Kevin took over. Newcastle chairman Sir John Hall hits out at the critics of his manager, Kevin Keegan.

n You know Dennis Wise - he could start a row in an empty house. Manchester United manage Alex Ferguson after an incident involving Chelsea skipper Wise and United midfielder Roy Keane during the FA Cup semi- final at Villa Park.

n Without wishing to sound conceited, I can't see myself playing in the Endsleigh League. I'm only thinking about helping Southampton stay up, but if the worst happens I can't see myself staying. Matthew Le Tissier.

n I have never been more serious about anything in my life. Ian Botham on his nomination as a Test selector.

n I've not considered stepping down. Wigan rugby league chairman Jack Robinson, who has been charged with conspiracy to defraud after a police investigation into an alleged bogus transfer deal.

n I now feel I am out there on my own as Damon Hill rather than Graham Hill's son. Damon Hill, who has won the first two grands prix of the season.

n Even today they are taking a lot of drugs to try to run 9.79 and can't run that fast. So how I got there, they have no idea. Ben Johnson, who broke the 100m world record at the 1988 Olympics before being stripped of the gold medal after testing positive for steroids.
