Athletics

Olympic and world 10,000m champion Mo Farah has won the 10km Great Manchester Run on May 19. Farah, who finished third at the London Marathon last month, raced past Ugandan Moses Kipsiro with 100 metres left to win in 28 minutes 27 seconds. Abel Kirui of Kenya finished third, 25 seconds behind Farah. For most of the race, the 35-year-old looked comfortable in warm conditions as he kicked past Kipsiro with 100 metres to go. But he said he was still recovering from breaking the British record at last month’s marathon – his first event over the distance since switching his focus to road racing.

Cricket

South African great Gary Kirsten, who coached India to World Cup success, said on May 22 he is helping rudderless Bangladesh quickly to find a coach ahead of a looming tour. The Bangladeshi team has not had a coach since Sri Lankan Chandika Hathurusingha stepped down in October after a successful three-year stint. The Bangladesh Cricket Board has appointed Kirsten as a consultant to help find a coach before a tour of the West Indies in July and August.

 

Football

Zinedine Zidane has stepped down as Real Madrid head coach five days after celebrating three consecutive Champions League titles with victory over Liverpool in Kiev. Zidane announced his decision on May 31. The World Cup winner said he felt he had taken the club as far as he could.
