AUSTRALIA’S golden era of the pool is back after a stunning opening night of racing was capped with the swim team’s first world record since 2009.

    BEFORE Anna Meares won our first gold of the Commonwealth Games she got a text from Sir Chris Hoy telling her to wipe her feet before she entered his velodrome.

    AUSTRALIA made an emphatic statement on the road to Olympic redemption with a Games record to beat England and win gold in the men’s team pursuit.

    WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Frank Lampard will not come to Melbourne City. A touted guest stint for the 106-cap England star has fallen flat amid his New York move.

    VINCENZO Nibali has confirmed his supremacy at the Tour de France with his fourth stage victory in the 18th stage from Pau to Hautacam.
