    THE SUN:
    Jose Mourinho has suffered his first blow as new Chelsea boss with a snub from Luka Modric. Also: Stuart Pearce is facing the axe after England Under-21s crashed out of Euro 2013.



    DAILY MIRROR:
    Stuart Pearce is set to win his battle to have the best Under-21 players called up for future tournaments - but it could be too late to save his job. Also: Lewis Hamilton shouted in fury at his team as he was beaten into third place in Montreal by Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso.



    DAILY MAIL:
    Australia responded to the Lions' spying allegations yesterday by suggesting the tourists are playing mind games and being paranoid about the threat of history repeating itself. Also: Stuart Lancaster's new brigade landed back in Buenos Aires last night determined to become the first England touring team to win both Tests of a series in Argentina.



    THE TIMES:
    Warren Gatland's Lions limp on to Newcastle in New South Wales today with injuries threatening to derail their tour of Australia. Also: It just had to be the forehand, whipped from somewhere behind his back as he stumbled, that kissed the earth and carried Rafael Nadal ever more deeply into the tennis history books.



    THE GUARDIAN:
    It was already written that the Spanish national anthem would be the closing soundtrack to the 2013 French Open final and it was widely held that it was also inevitable that the man holding the Coupes des Mousquetaires would be Rafael Nadal. Also: Simon Zebo has become the latest call-up to the injury-hit British and Irish Lions squad in Australia as the touring team count the cost of their hard-earned 22-12 weekend victory over Queensland Reds.



    DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    Australia coach Robbie Deans has accused the British and Irish Lions of creating a "sideshow" and hinted that the tourists are paranoid about security after claims by Warren Gatland that the Wallabies tried to film his squad's training session in Perth. Also: The sorry nature of the defeat at Edgbaston will have hurt Australia but at least their batsmen know what to expect for the next few months after England's bowlers revealed their recipe for retaining the Ashes later in the summer.



    THE INDEPENDENT:
    On a day when not even a court-invading protestor could get close to Rafael Nadal, the 27-year-old Spaniard yesterday sealed his place in history as the greatest clay-court player of all time. Also: Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton did their best to enliven one of the dullest Canadian Grands Prix in recent memory, as they battled for second place in the closing stages, but neither had the remotest answer to Sebastian Vettel who fired a red bullet into the Spaniard's World Championship aspirations.



    DAILY EXPRESS:
    Rafael Nadal was scared by a protestor carrying a burning flare who invaded the court as he made tennis history by winning his eighth French Open title. Also: Warren Gatland's plans to sort out his Lions Test team in good time before meeting Australia is perilously behind schedule because of the inadequate length of the pre-Test fixtures.

    THE DAILY TELEGRAPH:
    British racing was in mourning for Sir Henry Cecil last night after one of the greatest trainers of the post-War era finally succumbed to cancer at the age of 70.

    THE TIMES:

Also: Stuart Pearce shifted the blame on to his Under-21 players and refused to defend them after they suffered an embarrassing 1-0 defeat by Israel that means they depart the European Championship finals without a point.



    THE INDEPENDENT:
    Monaco are ready to make a world record E100m (£85m) bid for Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo. Also: Tiger Woods is in possession of a letter from Sergio Garcia, left in his locker at Merion.

Also: Ronan O'Gara calls it a "pretty dark memory" while Duncan McRae, the Australia back who punched his way into the Lions bestiary with a combination that might have won him a WBC title, has long accepted that he went just a little over the top in assaulting his Irish rival. Yes, we're back at the Sydney Football Stadium, scene of the last really serious dust-up involving the men in red shirts, and if truth be told, there are legions of unreconstructed rugby toughs out there who are relishing the thought of it kicking off again today.

    MAIL ON SUNDAY:

    OBSERVER:

    The England backs Christian Wade and Brad Barritt are flying to Australia to help ease the British and Irish Lions' mounting injury crisis. Also: The futility associated with attempts at selecting major winners before a ball is struck in anger may well extend to predictions over which courses supposedly suit certain players.

    THE INDEPENDENT:
    The British and Irish Lions will go into this weekend's opening Test with the Wallabies in considerable discomfort, both physically and psychologically. Also: If South Africa are the chokers, it is difficult to make out a case for England as models of hard-nosed, cool-as-cucumber tournament play.

    THE GUARDIAN:
    The British & Irish Lions have been warned that their midweek defeat by the ACT Brumbies will galvanise Australia for the first Test in Brisbane on Saturday.

    THE GUARDIAN:
    Alastair Cook may already be in rare company, having led England to their second ICC 50-over final in the past 20 years, but he was quite happy to talk up the significance of Sunday's climax at Edgbaston after a seven-wicket victory against South Africa means England will face either India or Sri Lanka.
