The Masked Singer revealed a tennis legend in its fourth week, with former Wimbedon champion Pat Cash being unmasked as the mysterious Bagpipes.

Stadiums are crucial sources of income and without them, football would cease to exist in the way it does in the modern era. The coronavirus pandemic reminded us of that very fact. But constructing a new one from scratch will burn a hole in the pocket even for the richest clubs in Europe and must be wisely considered by the parties involved before going ahead with their plans. If the capacity is not estimated correctly, it could cost the club millions. If the design is not ahead of its time, it may require modernising in the future, as Barcelona and Real Madrid have realised with their modernisation of Camp Nou and the Santiago Bernabeu. But it is still cheaper than the alternative, which would be to knock down those grounds. To do so would be a crime against football purists, for it is where both clubs have generated so much success. Despite that, clubs in the UK have chosen to prioritise their future over history by moving to a bigger and better new home, with controversial … [Read more...] about 7 most problematic modern stadium moves – from the Ricoh Arena to the Emirates

Novak Djokovic's deportation from Australia for not being vaccinated against COVID-19 dealt a final blow to his hopes of winning his 21st Grand Slam trophy there. But while it brought to an end a long-running visa saga that made headlines around the world, experts told Newsweek about the ramifications it could have on upcoming sporting tournaments amid the ongoing and often polarized debate over COVID-19 vaccine requirements. Djokovic, the world's top men's tennis player, jetted out of Australia on Monday as the Australian Open got underway in Melbourne. He had argued in an Australian court that he should be permitted to stay and complete in the tournament because a recent COVID-19 infection provided the basis for a medical exemption from Australia's vaccination rules. But the court upheld Immigration Minister Alex Hawke's decision to cancel the Serbian's visa . Hawke had said Djokovic's presence could be a threat to public order and encourage anti-vaccine sentiment amid a … [Read more...] about Djokovic vaccine saga has global implications for sporting calendar 2022
