    Pavel Srnicek: Former Newcastle keeper dies aged 47

    Former Newcastle United goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek has died at the age of 47, nine days after suffering a cardiac arrest in his native Czech Republic.
    A big favourite with fans during his first spell at St James' Park between 1991 and 1998, Srnicek collapsed while jogging on 20 December.
    He was taken to a hospital in Ostrava and placed in an induced coma.
    Srnicek, who also played for Sheffield Wednesday, Portsmouth and West Ham, made 49 appearances for his country.
    His agent, Steve Wraith, said the final brain scans on Monday had shown "irreversible damage" and the decision "had to be taken" to switch off the life support machine.
    Wraith added: "Pav passed away on the afternoon of Tuesday, 29 December 2015, with his family by his side."

    Louis van Gaal: Man Utd manager will not quit after Chelsea draw

    Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says he will not quit despite seeing his side slip further off the top four.
    Monday's 0-0 draw at home to Chelsea means United have now failed to win in eight games in all competitions.
    That hasn't happened since 1990 and leaves the club five points adrift of Manchester City in fourth place.
    But an upbeat and defiant Van Gaal said: "When the players give such a performance with a lot of pressure, there's no reason to resign."

    Australia wrapped up a comfortable 177-run victory over West Indies on day four of the second Test in Melbourne to take an unassailable 2-0 series lead.

    An overnight declaration on 179-3 set the tourists an unlikely 460 to win.

    Wickets fell regularly but Denesh Ramdin (59) and Jason Holder (68), who came together at 150-5, hit half centuries in a 100-run partnership.

    Mitchell Marsh, who finished with 4-61, dismissed both men as the Windies lost their last five wickets for 32 runs.

    On a decent batting surface, all of the top five made reasonable starts to their respective innings.

    Opener Kraigg Brathwaite knocked 31 off 34 deliveries before edging spinner Nathan Lyon to Steve Smith at slip, while Darren Bravo reached 21 before he pushed at a fine delivery from Peter Siddle and was caught by wicketkeeper Peter Nevill.

    Rajendra Chandrika was trapped lbw by James Pattinson for a patient 37 off 130 balls and Marlon Samuels became the first of Marsh's victims, caught by Nevill for 19, to leave the tourists 118-4.

    Jermaine Blackwood was the fifth to depart, adjudged lbw to Lyon for 20.

    Allegations that American football legend Peyton Manning took human growth hormone should be investigated, says the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada).

    Wada also described the allegations, which Manning dismissed as "complete garbage", as "very concerning".

    Al Jazeera reported that Denver Broncos quarterback Manning was treated with human growth hormone (HGH) during his recovery from neck surgery in 2011.

    Its source - Texas-based pharmacist Charlie Sly - has since recanted.

    The Al Jazeera documentary linked players from the National Football League (NFL) and Major League Baseball (MLB) with performance-enhancing drugs.

    "Al Jazeera's allegations are very concerning, particularly as it relates to the NFL's and MLB's testing programmes," David Howman, director-general of Wada, said in a statement.

    "While the NFL and the MLB are not signatories to the world anti-doping code, in recent years Wada has been working with them and other professional leagues in the United States to try to bring them closer to Wada's programme.

    "As it relates to the particular allegations by Al Jazeera, Wada expects that they will be carefully investigated by the relevant authorities and that, if warranted, necessary and appropriate steps would be taken."

    The NFL collective bargaining agreement, ratified in 2011, banned HGH but players were not tested for it until 2014. No NFL player has tested positive for HGH.

    MLB said it would investigate allegations made in the documentary that several of its players took banned hormone supplement Delta-2.

    Dundee United have played down the possibility of a link-up with Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk after manager Mixu Paatelainen confirmed an approach.
    A United spokesperson says it is highly unlikely a deal will happen.
    The approach came from a third party and is one of a number the club receive throughout the season.
    "We have not taken it any further yet, but I have to say it is a very luring prospect," former Finland head coach Paatalainen had said earlier.
    The United manager said it been suggested that it could lead to some young United players heading east, with some Shakhtar players coming to Tannadice.
    Shakhtar are based in the city of Donetsk, which has a population of nearly one million people in the centre of Ukraine.
    They were runners-up in their national top-flight last season and Mircea Lucescu's side presently lead the table on goal difference from Dynamo Kiev.
    The Miners, also known at The Moles, have been regular participants in the Champions League and were third in Group A behind Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain this season.

    Leeds Rhinos: Floods force Super League side out of training ground
    Leeds Rhinos have been forced to move out of their training ground after severe flooding at the weekend.

    The Super League champions and rugby union club Yorkshire Carnegie train in Kirkstall next to the river Aire, which burst its banks on Sunday.

    All seven training pitches, in addition to the main building, were contaminated by flood water.

    It is likely to be at least a month before the two sides and 60 staff will be able to return.

    Dale Steyn: South Africa bowler doubtful for second Test against England

    South Africa pace bowler Dale Steyn is doubtful for the second Test against England because of a shoulder injury.

    Steyn, the world's top-ranked bowler, was unable to bowl on day four of the first Test against England because of a spasm in his right shoulder.

    The 32-year-old had scans on Tuesday but they showed no signs of a muscle tear and he will undergo further tests before the second match on 2 January.

    South Africa are battling to save the first Test in Durban.

    Steyn had only just returned to the Proteas side after missing the majority of their tour of India with a groin injury.

    He slumped over holding his bowling arm early in England's second innings and left the field for treatment.

    The right-arm paceman returned later and tried to bowl, but pulled up injured again

    South Africa have also been disrupted by speculation about the future of star batsman AB de Villiers.

    The 31-year-old, who is also keeping wicket during this Test, said on Monday that he was looking to ease his workload amid rumours he is considering retiring.

    "There are a lot of rumours flying around I hear, but for the last two to three years the only talk I've been doing is to keep myself fresh and to have a bit of rest here and there," said De Villiers, who is ranked the number three Test batsman in the world.

    British number three Kyle Edmund has been handed a place in the main draw of next month's Australian Open following Richard Gasquet's withdrawal.

    The 20-year-old was three spots outside automatic qualification when the entry lists were released earlier this month.

    But Frenchman Gasquet, the world number nine, has pulled out with a back injury.

    It follows the earlier withdrawal of Argentina's Juan Monaco and Australian youngster Thanasi Kokkinakis.

    Edmund, who is ranked 102 in the world, came through qualifying in Melbourne this year before losing to American Steve Johnson in the opening round.

    He thought he had done enough for automatic qualification this year but missed out after five players used protected rankings to gain places at the year's first Grand Slam, which starts on 18 January.

    Edmund was part of the Great Britain squad which beat Belgium last month to win the Davis Cup for the first time in 79 years.

    Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez believes there is a "campaign" against him and the the club.
    A number of polls in Spanish media have indicated fans would like to see Benitez, 55, replaced at the Bernabeu.
    His side go into Wednesday's meeting with Real Sociedad third in La Liga, two points behind leaders Barcelona who have a game in hand on their rivals.
    "Everything that is open to criticism is criticised and that which is not is manipulated," Benitez told reporters.
    "What is clear is that there is a campaign against Florentino Perez, against Real Madrid and against the manager.
    "Surveys are carried out continuously and the media's interest in doing them is part of their interest in manipulating things".
    Spanish publications AS and Marca conducted polls in which Zinedine Zidane - currently coach of Real Madrid's second string - was the clear first choice to manage Los Blancos.

    Jurgen Klopp has stressed the need for Liverpool to deliver "a stable level of performance".

    Liverpool head into Wednesday's trip to Sunderland, live on Sky Sports, on the back of a 1-0 win over Premier League leaders Leicester - but that followed a 3-0 defeat at Watford.
    Since Klopp's appointment as manager in October, Liverpool's league record shows four victories - including impressive wins at Chelsea and Manchester City - three draws and three defeats.
