It's a fact unwisely overlooked by all those people gearing up to run Sunday's marathon that as Phidippides, the first marathon runner, hit the final ribbon in Athens he promptly dropped dead. It doesn't stop thousands doing the marathon of course, or indeed banging on about it afterwards, so it's a relief to discover that there is actually an interesting subject to talk about in the world of running. As explored in The Sub-Two-Hour Marathon: Sport's Holy Grail, it's the race to beat the current record of two hours, three minutes and 59 seconds.

Fresh from penning a new, improved deal which ties him – contractually, at least – to Murrayfield until the end of the 2015 World Cup year, Andy Robinson was asked yesterday what in particular he had enjoyed in his first two and a half years as Scotland's head coach. "The 9-8 against Australia, the 23-20 against Ireland, the [two] performances in Argentina," he replied, editing the highlights to four of the seven positive results over which he has presided in his 14 matches in charges of the Caledonian national team (there have also been wins against South Africa, Fiji and Samoa, plus a draw against England).

Ricky Ponting yesterday issued what is usually described as a warning about the poverty of England's prospects in the first Test. It would have been more of a surprise had Australia's captain derided his own team's chances of success in Brisbane, where the series finally starts on 25 November, but then that is not the purpose of the phoney war.
