Zara Phillips proudly wears her silver medal

I messed up and cost us the gold, says tearful Zara

It remains 40 years since Great Britain won gold for eventing but there has been no need for Baddiel and Skinner to write a song about it. Far from being years of hurt, they have been four rich decades of achievement in equestrianism, to which yesterday's silver in the team event added further distinction. It was a fifth runners-up finish in the team event during that time, and an improvement too on the bronze of four years ago.

Mike Tindall’s appeal should have been dismissed out of hand

RFU fiasco goes on as Tindall rejoins England squad

Mike Tindall, whose drunken antics during the early stages of the recent World Cup in New Zealand were a significant factor in the collapse of the England campaign, was last night reinstated to the elite squad by the Rugby Football Union's outgoing chief executive Martyn Thomas, whose decision will be widely seen as the latest blow struck in Twickenham's increasingly destructive committee-room conflict. The England centre also finds himself £10,000 better off, having had a £25,000 fine cut by two-fifths on appeal.

Sarah Sands: Changing-room rage averted by shoppers' serenity

There are a few things from which celebrity cannot protect you. They include parking tickets and taking a restricted number of garments into shop changing rooms. Zara Phillips does not need to shoplift, but then neither do many shoplifters. Last week she was stopped from carrying too many Superdry items into a changing room. I don't quite understand why she needed to try anything on, since the only point is the name of the brand and, in the end, a T-shirt is just a T-shirt.
