Novak Djokovic claims 22nd Grand Slam title
Novak Djokovic has won his 10th Australian Open title, this time by defeating Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets, in the final
The win was also the Serbian’s 22nd Grand Slam, equalling Rafa Nadal on the same amount of Majors.
Djokovic was unable to defend his title last year after being deported from the country over his Covid-19 vaccination status.
This year at Melbourne Park, he had a hamstring injury to deal with, as well the fallout of his father being filmed with a group of Russian supporters at the Australian Open.
Gary Lineker returns to ‘Match of the Day’ duties
Alan Shearer welcomed his co-host, describing it as a “really difficult situation”
Football commentator Gary Lineker is back at the BBC following last week’s controversy surrounding his views on the U.K. government’s asylum policy.
Welcoming Lineker back, fellow host Alan Shearer said it has been a “really difficult situation for everyone concerned.”
Lineker was taken off air following a critical tweet on the government’s asylum policy.
Last Saturday’s Match of the Day was broadcast without presenters or commentary and was only 20 minutes long – with many of Lineker’s BBC Sport colleagues walked out in “solidarity”.
The BBC has since said it will launch an independent review of its social media guidelines, particularly for freelancers like Lineker.
But, in the meantime, he is free to return to hosting duties.
At the start of the BBC’s live coverage of Manchester City v Burnley in the FA Cup on Saturday, Shearer addressed the elephant in the room.

Haas defends itself over Russia machine allegations
The team says the last time any machines were sent was in March last year
Formula One team Haas has defended itself against allegations its parent company was providing machines and parts to Russia.
The story on U.S. broadcaster PBS alleged 18 machines had been sent to Russia, from Haas, since sanctions were imposed, following the war in Ukraine.
Haas has denied the claims, saying the story is “simply false”.
The F1 team previously ended its partnership with Russian fertiliser company Nikita Mazepin in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
“Haas Automation is and has always been in full compliance with US government export control,” a statement from the motor racing team read.
“No machines have shipped from the Haas Automation factory to Russia since March 3, 2022.
“The 18 machines referenced in the story left the Haas Automation factory prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”
Haas was the most affected team from the war in Ukraine when it began in February 2022.
