Spectacular show marks Asian Games opening

A spectacular pyrotechnic show, including a simulated volcanic eruption, lit up the Jakarta skyline on Saturday night as Indonesia rolled out the red carpet for the continent's elite athletes in the opening ceremony for the 18th Asian Games. The country's president Joko Widodo made an unorthodox and dramatic entrance to the Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, riding a motorbike onto the stage before officially opening Indonesia's second hosting of the Asiad. "We are proud, we are honoured by the arrival of the special guests from 45 countries," Widodo told a crowd of 50,000 packed into the same arena where the 1962...

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock calls Kenedy penalty miss for Newcastle 'poetic justice'

Cardiff manager Neil Warnock described Kenedy’s stoppage-time penalty miss for Newcastle as “poetic justice” after the Brazilian had escaped a possible first-half red card in the 0-0 draw. Kenedy wasted the chance to give 10-man Newcastle the three points in the sixth minute of injury time, his weak attempt pushed out by Cardiff goalkeeper Neil Etheridge. But Warnock suggested Kenedy was lucky to be on the pitch after appearing to kick out at Cardiff’s Spanish midfielder Victor Camarasa in the 33rd-minute. Kenedy may yet face retrospective disciplinary action over the incident, but Warnock said: “It would have been devastating to...

With three Olympic gold medals and nine world titles already, he's already achieved great heights in his sport and earned the financial security that comes from global sporting success. He might...

Schweinfurt 0-2 SchalkeMagdeburg 0-1 DarmstadtWehen Wiesbaden 3-2 St Pauli Schalke secured their place in the second round of the German Cup with a lackluster victory against Schweinfurt of the Regionalliga, Germany's fourth tier.

But Schalke made heavy weather against a Schweinfurt side who were unable to muster any attacking threat, but defended stoically for long periods. Eventually Schalke got the second courtesy of an Adam Jabiri own...

Former Liverpool defender Ragnar Klavan has revealed that the counsel of Mohamed Salah and Alisson was vital in his decision to swap Anfield for Cagliari.
