The UK government is conducting a review of the ‘listed events’ legislation which ensures that certain sporting events must be aired on free-to-air television. As you might expect, there are two sides lobbying strongly. The BBC has argued that there are millions of ‘main-eventers’.

Danish goalkeeper Kim Christensen, who plays for IFK Gothenburg in Sweden, could face disciplinary action after TV cameras caught him literally moving the goalposts during a Swedish 1st Division game. The referee spotted that the posts had been moved and pushed them back into the right place. Christensen also claimed that he had done the same thing before in several other games by using his feet to push the bottom of each post slightly inwards. As ever, YouTube is on hand to provide the evidence - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyx-UaW9ORc.
