😙🤥😓 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).

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 Cam Norrie and Heather Watson are preparing to fly the flag for Britain on middle Sunday, with the pair facing huge last-16 ties. Follow all the action from SW19 here with Sportsmail.

😙🤥😓 Israel Adesanya brushed aside the challenge of Jared Cannonier in a masterclass of technical precision at UFC 276. The middleweight champion's clash with his challenger never quite ignited.

😙🤥😓 EXCLUSIVE BY NIK SIMON: The RFU's chief executive Bill Sweeney met Luther Burrell on Friday after the former England international shocked the sport in our exclusive interview.

😙🤥😓 Millionaire rap superstar Drake broke his unfortunate high-stakes gambling streak after Israel Adesanya's victory saw him win a $1million bet that was previously described as 'light' money.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 Raducanu was thrust into the spotlight following her run to the fourth round in SW19 last year before becoming the first ever singles qualifier to win a Grand Slam at the US Open.

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.

😙🤥😓 OLIVER HOLT: It was December 2017 and Serena Williams, who had nearly died in childbirth earlier in the year, was expected to compete in the Australian Open the following month.

😙🤥😓 NICK CALLOW AT WIMBLEDON: Aussie Kyrgios and his Greek opponent both received warnings from the umpire and their epic late night battle then spilled into a post-match war of words.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 England struggled to score in the latter stages of day two as wickets tumbled, but Bairstow and Ben Stokes set about upping the run rate in the morning session on day three.

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. 

😙🤥😓 Sensation Bennison scored a spectacular goal and caught the eye with assists after Everton broke the transfer record to sign her - and her former boss knows she can now shine at Euro 2022.

😙🤥😓 The sport's former ringmaster told The Mail on Sunday last weekend that he intends to end his Covid-prompted absence from races, starting at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 NEW Arsenal's acquisition of Gabriel Jesus is a better signing than Tottenham's Richarlison, says Tony Cascarino. He admitted he favours Jesus to score more goals next season.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 That Ronaldo wants to leave Manchester United isn't a huge surprise. Who wouldn't want to leave a club run as badly as they are? However, the next bit of the equation is a bit trickier.

😙🤥😓 Raheem Sterling appears to be planning for life after Manchester City amid reports he is negotiating to sell his £4.5million house to Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold.

😙🤥😓 Ten Hag rates the winger highly having worked with him for two seasons and he is eager to bring him to Old Trafford. However, United feel that it will be difficult to do a deal.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 The much-loved pundit and former England international left his 22-year role last December after being accused by Yorkshire whistleblower Azeem Rafiq of being a 'closet racist'.

😙🤥😓 LUTHER BURRELL: I received phone calls from some of the most powerful guys in rugby, including RFU CEO Bill Sweeney, chairman Tom Ilube and Premiership Rugby CEO Simon Massie-Taylor.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 Charles Oliveira is chasing a fight with Conor McGregor and used his appearance at UFC 276 to send a clear message to the Irishman. 'Do Bronx' spoke through an interpreter into the camera

'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'.

😙🤥😓 Alex Pereira knocked Sean Strickland out just half halfway through the first round of their fight at UFC 276 by delivering a fierce left hook. He then went on to call out Israel Adesanya.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 JEFF POWELL AT WEMBLEY ARENA: The Juggernaut overcame a slow start to remain unbeaten and move to 14-0, and, crucially, cement his status as the mandatory challenger for the WBO world title, currently held by Usyk.

😙🤥😓 If you had to choose a place for Tiger Woods to mark his latest return from injury, then Limerick in Ireland is probably not the city where you would start.

😙🤥😓 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'.

😙🤥😓 JOHN LLOYD: His victory against Stefanos Tsitsipas last night was incredible and with his draw this is now an unbelievable opportunity for him to make the final.

😙🤥😓 It was played on the lawns of SW19 amid the affluent suburbia of Wimbledon village but if ever a match felt like it was being contested in a dystopia, this was it.

😙🤥😓 KIERAN GILL AT WIMBLEDON: The top seed in the women's draw struggled on the grass of SW19 as Cornet, ranked 37th in the world, won 6-4, 6-2 in one hour and 33 minutes on Court One.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 Past champions will be out in force for a lunchtime ceremony before those aspiring to win that future status play on what, until now, has always been a rest day.

😙🤥😓 MIKE DICKSON: With Coco Gauff having been beaten earlier in the day, it left the women's draw further denuded of big names, and there is a huge opportunity for someone out there in the coming week.

😙🤥😓 MATTHEW LAMBERT ON CENTRE COURT: Amanda Anisimova produced a breathtaking display of poise and power hitting to knock out Coco Gauff and establish herself as a serious contender for the Wimbledon title.

😙🤥😓 A drained Katie Boulter admitted she ran out of steam as her fine Wimbledon run ended in disappointing fashion with a one-sided defeat by Harmony Tan in the third round.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 The Brit, who was yesterday knocked out of the competition in the third round, was dealt a snub when she was relegated from the Centre Court to Court 2 for her showdown against Harmony Tan.

😙🤥😓 A total of 153,193 people attended the first four days of Wimbledon, the smallest amount of spectators since 2007 when 148,986 people went to the games prompting a 'cut' to staff numbers.

😙🤥😓 NICK CALLOW ON COURT NO 2: The Romanian is back on the All England grass for the first time since being crowned champion three years ago. And her win over Polish opponent Magdalena Frech came in in little over an hour.

😙🤥😓 Defying her world No.44 ranking, Tomljanovic upset the 13th-seeded Czech 2-6 6-4 6-3 on Saturday to set up a potential fourth-round blockbuster with world No.1 Iga Swiatek.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 A chaotic qualifying run saw the Ferrari man bag the special honour of leading the field on a rain-drenched Silverstone, beating Red Bull's Max Verstappen by 0.072sec to start from the front.

😙🤥😓 Sainz kept his nerve as several rivals including world champion Max Verstappen spun on the wet track and joked afterwards: 'Spaniards normally struggle in the rain.'

😙🤥😓 The Mail on Sunday can reveal the much celebrated footballer has been lambasted by the city's council for not beginning any work on 67 Piccadilly.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 Tottenham have not finished their summer spending, with a right wing-back now on their agenda and negotiations ongoing for Middlesbrough's Djed Spence.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 Damian Willemse broke Welsh hearts with the final kick of a pulsating Test match as world champions South Africa triumphed 32-29 at Loftus Versfeld. Sportsmail's ROB COLE rated the players.

😙🤥😓 Townsend said it was his own sides failings in the first half - not the referee - that ultimately cost them the first Test in the three-match series but he didn't think they got the rub of the green when it came to decisions.

😙🤥😓 DAVID COVERDALE AT EDGBASTON: Ben Stokes' side trail the tourists by 332 runs with just five first-innings wickets remaining after a chastening second day of the rearranged fifth Test, which they already trail 2-1.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 The 58-year-old was a club legend, making 260 appearances for Rangers between 1991 and 1998. He won five league titles, three Scottish Cups and two League Cups in that time.

😙🤥😓 EXCLUSIVE BY SIMON JONES: The Argentina centre-back is wanted by both United and Arsenal as they push to strike a deal with Ajax this week who value him at £43m.

😙🤥😓 The Dutchman has been Erik ten Hag 's No1 target and Sportsmail sources have indicated a deal between United and Barcelona for the Holland star is '90 per cent' complete.

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.

😙🤥😓 Fellow Brit Lando Norris recently revealed that he regularly receives death threats on social media, while claiming that his girlfriend Luisinha Oliveira is also the target of online trolls.

😙🤥😓 Chelsea's defence has been significantly weakened following the departures of centre-back pair Antonio Rudiger and Anders Christiansen. The defensive exodus may continue next.

😙🤥😓 The former Leeds and Newcastle midfielder - who also played for Blues from 2009-11 - was informed on Saturday that the club would be making a change.

Best Buys-The smartest way to shop online

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 Ada Hegerberg is already the comeback queen of this summer's European Championship before a ball has even been kicked having ended her five-year Norway exile and overcome injury hell.

😙🤥😓 England's understudies believe they can play a leading role in this summer's Euros after putting on a show for boss Sarina Wiegman in a 4-0 thrashing of Switzerland.

😙🤥😓 Mohamed Salah is known for playing football with a smile on his face, but these days he must be grinning from ear to ear from dawn until dusk. The Egyptian superstar was seen enjoying a glorious summer holiday on the popular Greek island of Mykonos. Salah was spotted among the throngs enjoying his time at Principote beach as he recovers from a gruelling football season in which he played 51 matches for Liverpool and also represented Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations.

😙🤥😓 The Egyptian had entered the final 12 months of his terms but after months of talks he committed his future to Anfield with a new contract that has seen him become the best paid player in club history.

😙🤥😓 Brentford are closing on a deal for Bologna left-back Aaron Hickey. The London side have offered £14million plus add-ons and proposed a five-year contract for the Scotland international.

😙🤥😓 The path between European football and Major League Soccer in the USA has become increasingly well-trodden in the last 15 years. Bale has become the latest to make the switch

😙🤥😓 Inter were pipped to the Serie A title by their city rivals AC Milan last term, and have got straight to work on improving their playing staff in an attempt to return to the top of Italian football.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 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.

😙🤥😓 It was a wretched camp for England that has left many fans questioning Gareth Southgate's future, but what about the rest of Europe? Which countries are showing promise ahead of the World Cup?

😙🤥😓 Seven games stand in England's way of lifting the prestigious Jules Rimet trophy in December, with the final taking place the 80,000-seater Lusail Stadium on 18 December.

😙🤥😓 For fans of the global showpiece, there will be plenty to tuck in to in the group stage, which gets underway on November 21. Four matches are due to be played each day - at 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm.

😙🤥😓 The first-ever winter edition of the tournament gets underway on November 21 and runs through to December 18, interrupting the domestic campaign mid-season.

😙🤥😓 In under six months the 2022 FIFA World Cup will get underway in Qatar and the eight stadiums that will play host to the tournament are ready. They are also eye-catching to say the least.

😙🤥😓 There is still a chance to buy tickets for the 2022 World Cup, so if you're hoping to follow the fortunes of England, Wales or Scotland in the Middle East this winter, here is all you need to know….

😙🤥😓 The World Cup in Qatar gets underway on November 21 and runs until December 18 in what will be the first-ever winter edition of the tournament. Sportsmail takes you through the details.

😙🤥😓 Belgian jockey Christophe Soumillon accepted he had made a mistake when he was hit with a 12-day ban for careless riding after his euphoric celebration at Sandown.
