😙🤥😓 Three Brazilian MPs have accused Nelson Piquet (left) of committing a racial crime, asking a court to probe him over his N-word slur against Lewis Hamilton (pictured arriving at Silverstone, centre) ahead of today's British Grand Prix The politicians say they want the former F1 world champion charged over his controversial comments. Aurea Carolina, Taliria Petrone and Vivi Reis, MPs for the left-wing Socialism and Liberty Party, have lodged a formal complaint with prosecutors in the capital Brasilia. Piquet was banned from Silverstone earlier this week after using a racially offensive expression in Portuguese to describe Hamilton during an interview in his homeland. While the three-time world champion has being widely crticised by many within F1, the likes of Hamilton's on-track rival Max Verstappen, who is dating Piquet's daughter Kelly (both top right), have leapt to his defence as has former team boss and ex-F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone during a bizarre appearance on Good Morning Britain (bottom right).
FINALLY some good news for Erik ten Hag as Tyrell Malacia jets in to Manchester for his medical TODAY and new boss gets set to complete his first signing at Old Trafford... while club still reels from Cristiano Ronaldo's demand to leave
😙🤥😓 Manchester United are closing in on completing a move for Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia, with the Dutchman set to fly to England on Sunday to become Erik ten Hag's first signing at Old Trafford. It has been a frustrating start to the transfer window for United, who have watched a number of their rivals add to their squads in recent weeks. However, the Red Devils are on the verge of finally getting a deal across the line as Malacia is expected to undergo the first part of his medical on Sunday afternoon.
Richarlison could FINALLY be the perfect understudy to Harry Kane at Tottenham... the club have had its fair share of misfit strikers in Roberto Soldado and Vincent Janssen over the years, but the Brazilian has the quality to challenge their star forward
😙🤥😓 NEW Richarlison (right) is set to have his medical in home country Brazil on Thursday ahead of a £60million move from Goodison Park. He is expected to move in a £60million deal and will become the fourth summer signing for manager Antonio Conte (left) as Spurs continue to rebuild their squad ahead of a return to the Champions League. The Everton forward will also almost certainly be the first to step in if Harry Kane (second left), who has struggled with injuries at times amid a massive workload for club and country, misses out up front. The likes of Roberto Soldado (inset left), Vincent Janssen (inset right), Carlos Vinicius and several youngsters have all struggled to act as backup to Kane. So below, Sportsmail looks at the players to cover for the 28-year-old - and discusses why Richarlison has the quality to eclipse them all.
Nate Diaz disgracefully SMACKS a reporter around the head after warning him to 'watch your tweets about me'... as he delivers the same 'Stockton slap' he uses during fights in shocking backstage interview at UFC 276
😙🤥😓 Nate Diaz warned an MMA reporter to 'watch your tweets about me' before slapping him while backstage at UFC 276 on Saturday night. The 37-year-old was in attendance at the latest pay-per-view show, which saw Israel Adesanya defend his middleweight title via unanimous decision against Jared Cannonier in the main event. Before the action even got underway, MMA journalist "OG" Shawny Mack tried to catch up with Diaz, and the conversation appeared to start off cordially.
FIFA unveil a TENT CITY to offer fans accommodation for the Qatar World Cup... but the camping experience will still cost supporters £350 per night as part of a 'fan village' experience
😙🤥😓 FIFA have unveiled a tent city that they plan to host World Cup fans in Qatar this winter as part of a 'fan village' experience at the tournament. The tents though will be no ordinary camping experience and will cost supporters around £350 per night to stay at the venue based in Al Khor. With hotel booking limited in the tiny state at the tournament that kicks off in November, it's still likely to be the cheapest form of accommodation for any supporter wishing to see their side compete.
Ex-Barcelona defender Gabriel Milito tries to PUNCH an opposition coach in a heated tunnel brawl and eventually has to be 'escorted to a police station' after Argentinos Juniors victory over Cordoba Central
😙🤥😓 A video has surfaced appearing to show former Argentina and Barcelona centre-back Gabriel Milito involved in a scuffle with a counterpart coach. Militao is currently the manager of Argentinan side Argentinos Juniors, who play in the country's top division. The 41-year-old was sent off during the clash with Cordoba Central after protesting the referee's decision.
Look who's back! Suited-and-booted tennis legend Roger Federer returns to Wimbledon after missing the tournament for the first time in 23 YEARS with a knee injury
😙🤥😓 The legendary 40-year-old (pictured, centre) is missing the historic tournament for the first time since 1999 - 23 years - so he can recover from a knee injury. But Federer made his return to SW19 on Sunday to catch up on some of the action from today's play. The veteran has won a record eight men's singles titles at the famous Grand Slam, including five in a row from 2003-2007 inclusive. And Federer rocked up to the south-west London venue looking as suave as ever in a smart suit, with a jacket and tie.
Jamie Carragher brands Gary Neville a clown for thinking Cristiano Ronaldo rejected Man City for Man United as pundits get involved in Twitter spat over forward's shock request to leave Manchester United
😙🤥😓 Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher have engaged in a public spat over Cristiano Ronaldo's transfer request at Manchester United, with both pundits trading insults in their disagreement. Ronaldo's bombshell request to leave Old Trafford should a suitable offer for him be submitted sent shockwaves across the football landscape on Saturday. The Portuguese superstar's decision is said to be driven by his desire to play in the Champions League for the remainder of his career, according to The Times.
Locked on Man City's bench and loaded with Premier League experience, Nathan Ake could be just what Chelsea are looking for... but how much has he improved after just 19 league starts under Pep Guardiola?
😙🤥😓 When Nathan Ake arrived at the Etihad for £41million in August 2020, a first-team spot was in touching distance. Despite storming to a fourth Premier League crown in 2019-20, Manchester City were fully experimenting in defence following the exit of club captain and star defender Vincent Kompany the previous summer. Injuries to John Stones and Aymeric Laporte limited the pair to fewer than 20 Premier League starts each, which left Nicolas Otamendi as the most capped central defender in Pep Guardiola's squad at the end of the season.
SIR CLIVE WOODWARD: England's continued downward spiral since the zenith of 2019 is a concern to anyone who cares for English rugby... Eddie Jones' inability to get selection right is costing his side dear
😙🤥😓 The No1 skill you need as an international rugby coach is selection. Eddie Jones has changed a lot since walking into the England job. Selection was never his strength, but now his lack of understanding around this most important element of the England job is costing the team big time. Eddie is simply not picking the right team based on the game he needs to play to win at the top level. The game continues to move on but he has not. Eddie reverted to type. He picked a powerful team to hammer Australia and put his trust in his go-to players.
'The greatest ring walk in UFC history': Israel Adesanya sends fans wild by paying homage to WWE star The Undertaker at UFC 276... and even carries an urn to the octagon!
😙🤥😓 Fans have taken to social media to praise Israel Adesanya for his ring walk ahead of Saturday night's clash with Jared Cannonier at UFC 276. The 32-year-old pound-for-pound contender used The Undertaker's theme song as he walked to the octagon holding a urn with Cannonier's name on it. Fans described his ring walk as 'the greatest in history' and referred to Adesanya as 'legendary'. However, some supporters felt the act was 'disrespectful'.
Joe Joyce breaks Christian Hammer's will as he stops the German in round four after overcoming a slow start... The Juggernaut eats plenty of shots but shows again why he's trouble for any heavyweight
😙🤥😓 Joe Joyce (left) stayed unbeaten as he moved to 14-0 with victory over Christian Hammer (centre), who, after starting well, was broken down by the relentless 'Juggernaut'. Joyce once again showed he's easy to hit, with Hammer landing almost at will right from the off. But The Juggernaut remained relentless throughout. His chin and engine were typically almost robotic, and Hammer grew increasingly tired until he couldn't go any more. Joyce is trouble for any heavyweight, but he turns 37 in September and he can't wait for the division's big guns forever. Someone of the more technical calibre of former champion Joseph Parker, who conveniently swerved last night's testing eliminator while in the act of changing promoters.
'This isn't tennis': Wimbledon fans brand Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas's bad-tempered Court 1 clash 'embarrassing', with one exclaiming 'Roger Federer would never act like that'
😙🤥😓 Wimbledon fans have branded Nick Kyrgios and Stefanos Tsitsipas's bad-tempered Court 1 clash 'embarrassing', with one exclaiming 'Roger Federer would never act like that'. The Wimbledon crowd has been split over whether they enjoyed a drama-filled match between two fiery players who picked up three code violations between them. Australia's Nick Kyrgios was cautioned for swearing, while Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas (inset) breached the rules twice for smashing the ball away into the crowd. The pair's Court 1 spectators booed loudly in scenes expected of a football match, and those leaving described the game as everything from 'embarrassing' to 'absolutely incredible'.
Liam Broady's enthralling Wimbledon run is brought to an end after a straight-sets defeat against Alex de Minaur... as the Australian sees off another Brit to progress to the fourth round at SW19 for the first time
😙🤥😓 IAN HERBERT: He had arrived with only three rackets and after two sets of struggle against Alex de Minaur, the athletic Australian who hits with metronomic accuracy, sent one off to be tightened. By the time it came back, he was a break down in the third set and had been badgering chair umpire Fergus Murphy to find out where the re-strung racket had got to. 'The first couple of sets I felt like the ball was flying off my strings a bit,' said Broady.
Katie Boulter crashes out of Wimbledon in the third round in 51 MINUTES... as the British wildcard wins just TWO games in her defeat against Serena Williams' conqueror Harmony Tan
😙🤥😓 RIATH AL-SAMARRAI AT COURT 2: At the centre of attention but on the fringes of the grounds, Katie Boulter's heartening charge at Wimbledon came to a subdued conclusion on Saturday. The defeat on her big day will sting, though the manner of it will hurt considerably more. It was brutal and decisive, underwhelming and magnificent, depending on which side of the divide you called for - the plucky underdog from Britain or the plucky underdog from France. Sadly for home interests, Harmony Tan was relentlessly good and Boulter just didn't turn up. She was crushed, pushed off the rollercoaster in 51 minutes by a woman having the time of her life. We can likely make the argument that this match would have been tighter, a little more balanced, if Boulter had been given an appointment on Centre Court rather than Court 2, as seemed appropriate after she beat last year's finalist Karolina Pliskova to reach the third round.
'We're better than that... I don't agree': Lewis Hamilton urges Formula One fans not to boo Max Verstappen at the British Grand Prix after the Silverstone crowd vent their disapproval at the world champion
😙🤥😓 Verstappen received a hostile reception while fulfilling media duties after qualifying second for Sunday's British Grand Prix at Silverstone. The Mercedes driver and Verstappen are fierce rivals after they battled for the drivers' championship last season with the Red Bull man just edging out Hamilton on the final race - and lap - of the season.
FAN VIEW: England head coach Eddie Jones NEEDS to make changes this week after Australia defeat or face the Test series being over.... as Henry Arundell stakes a claim to start the next match with Billy Vunipola underperforming
😙🤥😓 FAN VIEW: How would the Marcus Smith and Owen Farrell partnership work? What difference would Danny Care back at scrum-half make to the speed of the ball from the breakdown and continuity in the attack? Could Joe Cokanasiga bring added physicality out wide? And would Billy Vunipola, the player I highlighted in my last article, be able to produce his world-class performances of 2016? As an England supporter, my optimism grew when I heard just before kick-off that Quade Cooper, the Wallabies fly-half had to drop out of the match-day squad due to injury.
Australia's Tom Banks suffers SICKENING broken arm as Wallabies are hit by another injury blow against England after Quade Cooper's injury in the warm up
😙🤥😓 With the Wallabies kicking off after an Owen Farrell penalty, Banks climbed high to win the aerial contest but landed awkwardly on his arm and was in serious pain at Optus Stadium. The 28-year-old was immediately withdrawn from the field of play in another blow for Australia after veteran flyhalf Quade Cooper picked up a calf injury in the warm up.
South Africa 32-29 Wales: Hosts' stunning second-half comeback denies Wayne Pivac's side an historic first ever win at the Springboks, as Dewi Lake's late try is in vain with Damian Willemse winning dramatic match with last-gasp penalty
😙🤥😓 ALEX BYWATER: The visitors raced into an early lead after a Louis Rees-Zammit double and the boot of Dan Biggar helped the visitors to an 18-3 half-time lead as Biggar was sent to the sin bin. But the world champions fought back brilliantly and scored twice in 12 minutes, before Cheslin Kolbe to make it just 24-22 with 15 minutes on the clock as the game hurtled towards a dramatic climax with Alun Wyn Jones sent to the bench.
'Taken far too young': Gary Neville and Chris Sutton lead the tributes to legendary Rangers and Manchester United goalkeeper Andy Goram as he dies aged 58 following cancer battle
😙🤥😓 Former Manchester United and Rangers goalkeeper Andy Goram has died at the age of 58 following a short battle with oesophagaeal cancer. Goram cemented his status as a club legend at Rangers having made 260 appearances for the Scottish club and wrote his name into eternal glory by winning five league titles, three Scottish Cups and two League Cups in that time. Goram was adored by Rangers fans who loved him so much that a supporters' poll taken in 1999 saw Goram was voted the club's greatest goalkeeper of all time.
Carnage at the Tour de France! Yellow jersey rider Yves Lampaert is involved in a nasty peloton pile-up... but the Belgian manages to get back on his bike to complete second stage in Denmark
😙🤥😓 A huge crash took down yellow jersey rider Yves Lampaert on stage two of the Tour de France on Saturday. Lampaert was a somewhat surprising winner of the opening time trial on Friday, earning himself the treasured maillot jaune. However, stage two did not go according to plan for the Belgian as he was brought down when the leading group went over the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark.

Blunt, direct, no emotion. Is this Dutch boss just what England need to be winners? After Phil Neville's passion, deadpan coach Sarina Wiegman is fanning flames for Euro glory
😙🤥😓 IAN HERBERT: There is something about the England women's football squad and fire pits. Before the last World Cup, coach Phil Neville took the players out into the Qatari desert and sat them down around the flames at dusk to share stories and foster mutual respect. Sarina Wiegman, the 52-year-old Dutch coach who leads them into the European Championship at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, employed the same method in less exotic surrounds. A large communal room was cleared at St George's Park last October, and a video of flames projected into a drum created a virtual camp fire, as players lounged on beanbags, drank hot chocolate and related their journeys through the sport.

'If she's mad, her eyes can spit fire': Sarina Wiegman is respected, ruthless and not afraid to make big decisions... now the Dutch coach is seeking to lead England to Euros glory
😙🤥😓 KATHRYN BATTE: She may not have the profile of her predecessor, Phil Neville, but the Dutch coach striving to make history with the Lionesses this summer is a proven winner at managerial level. Now Sarina Wiegman is tasked with delivering England a first major trophy since 1966. No pressure then. Wiegman led Netherlands to victory on home soil at Euro 2017 and her mission is to repeat that feat with England, with six games separating her side from the final at Wembley on July 31. Born in The Hague in 1969, Wiegman began playing football on the streets with her twin brother. Her country had banned girls from joining boys teams but, undeterred, a young Wiegman cut her hair short so she could play alongside her sibling.
OLIVER HOLT: The REAL reasons so many fans are turning on England's most successful boss for 50 years… there's a prejudice against English managers - and Gareth Southgate is a liberal
😙🤥😓 Let's be honest: the knives have been out for Gareth Southgate (centre) since before the European Championship. A significant strand of the England fanbase has wanted him to fail since then. The question is why? Why is there this disconnect between the record of our most successful manager for 50 years and the fans who turned on him so ferociously at Molineux (right) on Tuesday? Some of the issues are societal. We live in an age of short-termism where we get bored very quickly. People want change and they want churn. There is a prejudice against English managers now that has its rationale in the fact all the leading bosses in the Premier League, brilliant coaches such as Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte, are German, Spanish or Italian. There is a political element to this, too. Southgate is a liberal marching at the front of a fanbase that contains a significant illiberal element. A lot of England fans don't like what he stands for. Early in the Euros, remember, England players were booed by England fans for taking the knee (bottom left) but Southgate has remained a steadfast proponent of the gesture and its continuing importance.
