- Sullivan rises from the pack to grab Joburg Open win
A blistering front nine laid the platform for Briton Andy Sullivan to claim a second European Tour win at the Joburg Open on Sunday. Sullivan, who has now qualified for the Open Championship at St Andrews in July, sunk five birdies on his outward nine. Two more birdies coming home, coupled with a bogey, gave him a final round score of 66 and a total of 270 to win at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Club.

- Sri Lanka hammer England as Pakistan falter at ICC World Cup
England's hopes of reaching the quarter-finals were left hanging by a thread as Sri Lanka inflicted their third crushing defeat of the World Cup on Sunday, while Pakistan began a salvage operation with a tense 20-run win over Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka cruised to a seemingly stiff target of 310 for the loss of just one wicket with 16 balls to spare as Lahiru Thirimanne (139 not out), and Kumar Sangakkara (117 not out) shared an unbroken second-wicket partnership of 212 in Wellington. Yet Sangakkara insisted he still planned to retire from white-ball cricket after the World Cup as he was "getting old". "Everything I tried came off," he said after a win that left 1996 champions Sri Lanka, losing finalists at the last two World Cups, on course for the last eight.

- Van Gaal admits Di Maria struggling at Man United
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal confessed that Angel di Maria is struggling to adjust to English football after substituting him at half-time of United's 2-0 win over Sunderland. After a promising start to his United career, following a club-record £59.7 million ($92.2 million, 82.3 million euros) transfer from Real Madrid, the form of the Argentina international has dipped. Di Maria has scored just once for United since the start of October and, after an ineffective first half against Sunderland at Old Trafford on Saturday, he was taken off at the interval by Van Gaal.
