FOOTBALL

Newcastle's Matt Richie and Grant Hanley have been recalled to the Scotland squad for their World Cup qualifiers next month. Gordon Strachan's side face make or break Group F games against Lithuania and Malta. Matt Phillips, Steven Fletcher and Steven Whittaker also return to the squad. Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer gets a first senior call-up after David Marshall picked up an injury.

Stevie May got his first goals for Aberdeen as the Dons defeated Dundee to maintain their winning start to the Premiership. Celtic and St Johnstone are the other teams to have collected maximum points so far. 

Peterhead were beaten 3-1 by Stenhousemuir at Ochilview.  Nathan Blockley, released by the Balmoor club at the end of last season, was among the scorers in the League 2 match. 

Fraserburgh ended Cove's winning start to the Highland League after a 1-1 draw at Harlaw Park.  Marc Dickson scored a late equaliser for the Broch, who trailed to a first half penalty.  Meanwhile, Formartine were beaten at reigning champions Buckie while Inverurie managed a fine win at Brora. 

GOLF

USA's women retained golf's Solheim Cup, as Europe were unable to pull off a record comeback on the last day in Iowa. The hosts had a five-point lead heading into the final session. Despite a battling European performance in the singles, America expectedly took victory by 16-and-a-half points to 11-and-a-half.

Adrian Otaegui won his maiden European Tour golf title. The Spaniard took victory at the Paul Lawrie Match Play in Germany. He beat compatriot Alejandro Canizares in the semi-finals, before clinching the trophy against home player Marcel Siem.

ATHLETICS

Sir Mo Farah won his last track race in Britain - the 3-thousand metres at the Birmingham Grand Prix.  The four-time Olympic and six-time world champion's moving up to marathon after Thursday's Diamond League in Zurich. Two of Britain's 4-by-100 metres relay gold medallists from London's recent mWorld Championships suffered mixed fortunes yesterday. CJ Ujah won the individual race, with Adam Gemili disqualified.

TENNIS

Maria Sharapova will play her first tennis Grand Slam in a year-and-a-half later this month - after getting a wildcard for the US Open. The former world number one and 2006 champion's working her way back from a doping ban.  She unintentionally broke rules when taking a drug for medical reasons.

RUGBY

Scottish, Welsh and Irish rugby union clubs will have two new opponents from South Africa in an expanded Pro14 this season.  Free State Cheetahs and the Southern Kings will join the competition immediately.  It'll now be made up of two Conferences - where all 14 teams will play each other at least once, with home and away derbies protected.  The top three from each Conference will reach the knockout stages.
