Amir Khan quits boxing

Athletics

Sir Mo Farah has admitted his career as an elite track athlete is almost certainly over after he endured a shock defeat by a club runner who had to pay a £37 entry fee to compete at the Vitality London 10,000 on May 2.

During a career which has included four Olympic gold medals and six world titles, Farah has been renowned for his blistering sprint finish. But he had nothing in the tank when the 25-year-old competitor, Ellis Cross, who was not part of the elite field and wore a bib with No 219 on it rather than his name, kicked for home in the shadow of Buckingham Palace.

Farah offered a harsh assessment when asked if he had to accept that his track career was over after finishing in 28 min 44 sec – a minute slower than his best time on the road and four seconds slower than Cross.

 

Boxing

Amir Khan has announced his retirement on May 13 as the former world champ said “it’s time to hang up my gloves” following defeat by Kell Brook. The 35-year-old former world champion, who suffered a stoppage loss to Brook in February, has confirmed his retirement in a message on social media.

He said on Twitter, “It’s time to hang up my gloves. I feel blessed to have had such an amazing career that has spanned over 27 years. I want to say a-heartfelt-thanks to the incredible teams I have worked with and to my family, friends and fans for the love and support they have shown me.”

 

Cricket

South Africa batsman Zubayr Hamza has on May 17 been banned for nine months after testing positive for a heart medication he said he took by accident. Hamza, 26, told the International Cricket Council (ICC) he intended to take his own medication, but ingested his father’s heart medication instead.

The ICC accepted his explanation and gave him a shorter ban, but he will miss this summer’s tour of England. He played the last of his six Tests in February against New Zealand. Hamza averages 17.66 from six Tests with a high score of 62 and has played three Tests against England in the 2019-20 series.

He provided an out-of-competition sample in January in which the prohibited substance Furosemide was found. The ICC’s integrity unit said it “established no significant fault or negligence on his part”. “I have never intentionally taken a prohibited substance and I am relieved that the ICC determination confirms this fact,” Hamza said.

 

Football

Paul Pogba is likely to move abroad when his Manchester United contract runs out this summer amid reported interest from Manchester City. The France midfielder joined United in 2016 for a then-world record fee, but would now welcome a fresh challenge.
One source claimed he has grown frustrated at his treatment by the British media and feels he has become a scapegoat for United’s problems. Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain remain interested in signing him.

The French Football Federation (FFF) President, Noel Le Great, has let slip that Zinedine Zidane could soon take the reins at Paris Saint-Germain. Zidane, who has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid in 2021, has been heavily linked with the newly-crowned French champions as they embark on a summer regeneration at the Parc des Princes. The likely departure of Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season has led to PSG’s Qatari owners making Zidane their ‘dream’ managerial appointment this summer. Zidane has been linked to taking over as coach of the French national team once Deschamps’ time is up.

 

Golf

Almost 100 Muslim golfers who took part in midnight sessions during Ramadan will get the chance to continue their golfing journey this summer.

Wales Golf and Parc Golf Club opened up the Short Game Academy and golf range at the club between Cardiff and Newport on Fridays during Ramadan, with growing numbers taking advantage of the opportunity. The Ramadan sessions with professional coaches inspired some beginners to enroll in New2Golf programme at the Parc, starting in June and building up to a 40-shot competition on the course towards the end of the summer.

Those taking part included former Ladies European Tour professional Sahra Hassan, who will now coach through Wales Golf. Wales Golf’s event organiser, Simon Lu, said, “It is important the midnight Ramadan golf was not a one off and that we use it as a way of encouraging a more diverse group into the sport-for-life through ongoing sessions.

 

Tennis

Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur recovered from a mid-match struggle at the Madrid Open to become the first African player to win a WTA 1000 event on May 8. The 27-year-old, the world number 10, trailed 4-1 early on and failed to win a game in the second set but still beat American Jessica Pegula 7-5 0-6 6-2. It is Jabeur’s second career title after winning in Birmingham last year. She was the first Arab player – male or female – to break into the world’s top 10.

Sania Mirza will retire after the US Open – the last Grand Slam of the year. The 35-year-old Indian tennis star had announced earlier this year that 2022 would be the last of her professional career. The Indian tennis icon recently won the Italian Open women’s doubles
