ENGLAND are humiliated in their first Test in 29 years against South Africa as they are bowled out for 99 at Lord's. The margin of defeat is 356 runs, the largest winning margin achieved by the South Africans in their history.

Worse still for England is the ball-tampering row involving Michael Atherton, who is fined pounds 2,000. Among others, Jonathan Agnew, the BBC's cricket correspondent, says Atherton should resign the captaincy.

Looking less than sore, Miguel Indurain completes another Tour de France victory in Paris, the Spaniard thus joining the Frenchman Jacques Anquetil and Belgian's Eddy Merckx as the only riders to have won the race four times in a row.
