The best thing we shared

Stage Three of the Tour de France was forced to stop after a crash involving 20 riders. Looks nasty.

On the record

Joe still had so much work to do but he took the ball on the turn and finished beautifully. Only a handful of players could score a goal like that but while it’s hard to be critical of the guy, Galway still need more out of him.” – Columnist John Gardiner dissects Kilkenny’s win over Galway.

The fixture list

  • Shamrock Rovers face FC Progres Niederkorn in the second leg of their Europa League first round qualifier at Tallaght Stadium (8pm).
  • At Wimbledon, it’s Serena Williams v Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova v Coco Vandeweghe on Centre Court.
  • Tour de France continues with Stage 4, which is 221 kilometres from Seraing to Cambrai.

Showbiz, baby!

It’s fair to say Nick Kyrgios had a bit of a meltdown at Wimbledon today after a couple of decisions didn’t go his way. Here he is conceding a game on the way to Richard Gasquet.
