iPhone : Really big step from Rugby World Cup taking the word “women” out of the World Cup so that the tournament name is gender neutral. First major sport to make the change. twitter.com/womenssport/st…

iPhone : In the build up to US Open Tennis I wrote about this tweet, and why Nick Kyrgios’ anger is a source of entertainment but Serena Williams’ debate with umpire Carlos Ramos caused global outrage. Until we allow sportswomen to be angry we’re not really letting them play sport. twitter.com/espnausnz/stat…

iPhone : Love this story so much. Makes me very happy to be showcasing women’s sports stories from history. Read this brilliant tale of two women drivers from 1962. twitter.com/womenssport/st…

iPhone : Six women’s football matches in 2018, including three internationals, were identified as having suspicion betting patterns by a new report | Tim

iPhone : It's not really fair trying to compete against Nafi Thiam. Katarina Johnson-Thompson long jumps her furthest in four years... so Thiam beats her by smashing her lifetime best. Obviously. telegraph.co.uk/athletics/2019…

iPhone : Lovely read on Fiona Kolbinger’s brilliant win - 10 days sleeping on roadsides, carrying full kit, and cycling 4,000 miles across the continent. Kolbinger, a doctor from Germany, beat the nearest male competitor by 150 miles. twitter.com/WomensSport/st…

iPhone : This quote on England tho. Sheesh!
“I always said that if you guys would loosen up a bit – let that asshole go a little – and actually have some enjoyment, you might have some success.”
