I agree. What a legend.

Kevin Anderson about to start his Wimbledon Men’s Semi-Final match. If he wins, he’ll be the first South African to contest a Wimbledon Final since 1929! (SuperSport 6) His opponent John Isner leads their Head-to-Head 8-3.

Also Kgothatso Montjane contesting the Women’s Wheelchair Semi Final at the moment, but struggling in the 1st set. (SuperSport 11) Significant in that she is the first black South African woman to represent not just the country, but also the continent at Wimbledon.

He was probably so fatigued during today’s game. He did incredibly well however.

So the Rugby Championship started, and at least the Boks won their game. That first half was poor, but they came out absolutely swinging in the second half. And Ampiwe Djanti is an absolute beast of a wing!! That dude is going to be a Springbok for a long ass time!

Russia klapped with a big ban:

Don’t do drugs sporty types.

I thought they were already banned? Or are they now just banned for longer?

Bit of both I think. The athletics ban from 2015 is still place, but this one extends to “any major sporting event” in which the World Anti Doping Agency has a enforcement role. Which is pretty much all international level sport.

It comes after Russia’s Anti Doping Agency (Rusada) was declared non-compliant for manipulating laboratory data handed over to investigators in January 2019.

It had to hand over data to Wada as a condition of its controversial reinstatement in 2018 after a three-year suspension for its vast state-sponsored doping scandal.

Top marks to the CNN Twitter person for the inspired picture choice to go with that :grinning:

I remember my aunt from Blackpool telling me that everyone really prefers Man City and I was like that can’t be. Man United is the best team in the world. Then Man City got money somewhere along the way I by then I had lost interest in football.
