Friday 21st July

FOOTBALL

It will be the Cypriots Appollon Limassol up next for Aberdeen in the third qualifying round of the Europa League.  It’s after the Dons defeated Siroki Brijeg 2-0 in Bosnia & Herzegovina last night.  Second half goals from summer signings Greg Stewart and Gary Mackay-Steven gave them a 3-1 aggregate win. The first leg against Appollon will be at Pittodrie next Thursday. 

European football bosses are taking action against Celtic after their Champions League qualifying win over Linfield. It's over a supporters' banner, stairways allegedly being blocked and rules about kit sponsors.  The Scottish Premiership champions won 4-0 on the night - 6-0 on aggregate - and face two more rounds to reach the group stage. 

Peterhead go to Dunfermline in the Betfred Cup on Saturday.  The Blue Toon already have three points in Group B having won their opening match against East Fife last weekend.  The Pars currently top the section but have played an extra game.  There's an all-Premiership tie in the Betfred Cup tonight as Ross County take on Hibs in Group D.

GOLF

It’s day two of the Open Championship golf at Royal Birkdale.  Three Americans, Jordan Speith, Brooks Koepka and Matt Kuchar, held the joint overnight lead on five under par.  Aberdeen pair Richie Ramsay and Paul Lawrie get their second rounds underway on two under and level par respectively. 

CYCLING

Britain's Chris Froome's closing in on his fourth Tour de France title - as he heads into Stage 19.  The defending champion's 23 seconds ahead of Romain Bardet in the overall classification.

TENNIS
Roger Federer says as long as his health holds up - he could be playing tennis when he's 40.  Ahead of turning 36 next month - he won a record eighth Wimbledon men's singles title by beating Marin Cilic in the final.  It brought up an unprecedented 19th grand slam trophy in men's singles.  Andy Murray, who crashed out at the semi final stage, remains at number one in the rankings.  His brother Jamie Murray partnered Martina Hingis to the mixed doubles title while fellow Scot Gordon Reid teamed up with Alfie Hewett to successfully defend their men's wheelchair doubles crown. 

MOTORSPORT

It turned into an excellent weekend for Lewis Hamilton who won a record-equalling fifth F1 British Grand Prix. He's now just a point behind world championship leader Sebastian Vettel – with the Ferrari driver only finishing seventh after suffering a late puncture. Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas was second, ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in third. Renault's Jolyon Palmer retired early on with a hydraulics problem.

Silverstone's owners say they're giving up hosting the British F1 Grand Prix after 2019 - unless they get a new deal with the sport's American bosses.  It puts the future of the race itself in real doubt. The track's owners - the British Racing Drivers' Club - say they've lost over 7-million-pounds hosting the event in the last two years.  Silverstone's regarded as the only viable venue in the UK.
