Picture Editor gets cut out of Derby scene

Sometimes collective will is just not enough to get a horse first past the post. With the 2,000 Guineas favourite Frankel already tucked safely away for the winter at Warren Place, it was widely expected that his stablemate, Picture Editor, would extend this season's Henry Cecil fairytale by making the journey back up the hill from his local track yesterday as market leader for the Derby. Unfortunately for the trainer's followers, the punters who backed him to 4-6 and any authors named Grimm, the colt was made to look ordinary as he finished third in the Zetland Stakes behind two rivals with few lofty pretensions.

Gap scraps new logo after online outcry

Leading article: The gruesome reality of sweatshops

It took years for campaigners to persuade the world's top sportswear manufacturers that they should take responsibility for the conditions in which their products were manufactured overseas. When Nike, Adidas, Puma and the rest grudgingly came round, it was hailed as a turning-point in the relationship of these companies to their sub-contractors in the developing world. Five years ago this newspaper spoke of "the ethical revolution sweeping through the world's sweatshops". It seems we spoke too soon: what was really under way was a revolution in these companies' public relations departments. As our investigation published today reveals, conditions in hundreds of the factories in which the West's favourite sportswear brands are manufactured remain highly unsatisfactory or appalling.

Now Capello kicks out at 'the worst ball I've seen in my life'

Fabio Capello last night declared that the Jabulani ball used in the World Cup was "the worst ball that I have seen in my life," insisting that the trajectory is "impossible" for goalkeepers to judge.

Adidas dismisses England complaints about new ball

Adidas was growing increasingly frustrated with England last night over repeated suggestions that other nations had been given the advantage of a greater period of time to practise with the World Cup match ball. There is a feeling among some in the England camp that getting access to the Adidas Jabulani ball proved difficult back in the spring, and that the players had only the 15-day run-in to the World Cup to train with it, handing a distinct advantage to the Germans because of the ball's use in the Bundesliga since February.

Carragher: Germany remind me of Liverpool – they never give up

It was probably the biggest compliment Jamie Carragher could pay the Germany team: he compared them to Liverpool, for their unshakeable belief that, whoever they are playing and whatever the odds, they believe that they can win games through sheer force of will.
