Form an orderly queue, ladies; Howard Stern, American radio's prime "shock jock" – think Russell Brand without the restraint – is organising a Tiger Woods Mistress Beauty Pageant, to be held on 10 March. First prize is $100,000, and four of the 13 women so far identified as fitting the criterion have reportedly agreed to appear. The contest is sponsored by a "married but looking" dating website, whose motto is: "Life is short, have an affair", and the hunt is on for judges, though one of Stern's targets, Elin Nordegren, alias Mrs Woods, isn't returning his calls. But look, who's that at the airport? Why, it's Cheryl Cole, a frequent flyer to the US and a reality-show panel veteran, not to mention... Sign her up, Howard. It was meant.

Twenty years and five days after his first Test appearance, Sachin Tendulkar made his 43rd century yesterday. It was less dazzling than most of the previous 42 but there was a sense of inevitability that he would mark his two decades as an international batsman and it ensured that India saved the first Test match against Sri Lanka in Ahmedabad.
