    The New Zealand Derby will go ahead at Auckland's Ellerslie race course tomorrow under social distancing protocols.



    The Breakers have lost 87-84 to top-of-the-table Melbourne United in the Australian basketball league.



    The World Anti-Doping Agency is looking into the colour scheme of Haas' new Formula One car that features the red, white and blue of the Russian flag.

    Questions have been raised about compliance with a December 2020 Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling which bans Russia from competing as a nation with their symbols such as anthem and flag at major events for two years.



    The French rugby team's Covid-19 protocols will be strengthened, with players and staff forbidden from leaving their hotel ahead of Six Nations games after their dalliance with coronavirus.

    That means no more eating waffles in the streets of Rome.
