Sport in brief
Jon Rahm was still coming to terms with his latest win after beating Dustin Johnson on the first hole of a play-off in the BMW Championship at Olympia Fields in Chicago. A bogey-free six-under 64 had left Rahm in pole position on four under before Johnson birdied the 15th and holed a 43-foot putt on the 18th to force a play-off. But Rahm then sunk his own monstrous putt from 66 feet and when his American opponent’s effort finished short, Rahm took the win. “I still can’t believe what just happened the last hour of play,” he said.
The FIA has launched an investigation into the accident at Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix in which British driver George Russell escaped unharmed after hitting an errant wheel sent hurtling when Antonio Giovinazzi lost control of his Alfa Romeo on lap 10. Wheel tethers were introduced into Formula One to prevent a tyre flying off a car during a collision. FIA race director Michael Masi said: “It is a concern that it happened. Why the wheel came detached, I am not 100 per cent sure, but immediately when the car arrived back our technical team started their investigation.”
