FIRST, the Colombian women’s cycling team uniform had us doing a double take with its revealing design. The men’s leaves nothing to the imagination, either.

WEIGHTS AND BETTING: JAPANESE raider Admire Rakti has been given the honour of topping the 2014 Melbourne Cup weights with 58 kilograms.

Arsenal are facing a crisis ahead of their Champions League opener, with Arsene Wenger only able to call on three fully fit first-team defenders.

WELCOME to the NFL, where a shocking number of players make our baddest footy stars look like boy scouts.
