It was fair to say that Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce was still in a state of shock yesterday. "When I got off the plane at Heathrow yesterday and gave the immigration officer my passport, she asked 'What's your purpose for being here?'" the Jamaican sprinter, who won the Olympic 100m title in Beijing in 2008 and at London 2012, recounted. "I said: 'Oh, I'm an athlete. I'm here to compete in Birmingham.' She said: 'OK, so were you at the Olympics?' I was like: 'Yes, I was at the Olympics.' She said: 'Do you know Oscar Pistorius?' I said 'Yes.' She said: 'He shot his girlfriend.' 'I was like: 'Are you serious?'"

Sport in Brief: Wood sinks eagle in Qatar; Contador captures sixth stage; England whitewash Aussies

Chris Wood made an eagle at the 18th hole to claim his first European Tour win with victory in the Qatar Masters yesterday. The putt proved crucial as it meant the 25-year-old from Bristol overtook Sergio Garcia, of Spain, and George Coetzee, of South Africa, who both finished a shot back. The world No 142 hit a six-iron to within 12 feet and calmly sank the putt to complete a final round of 69. "Winning an event on the European Tour is not easy," said Wood. "It was a nice way to finish and it feels good to pick up the trophy. I have been waiting patiently and it is finally my turn."
