Quote of the week: “It’s hor­ri­ble isn’t it. Did you vote for Brexit? Brex-shit. I don’t like it. Look at the pound and the euro. I get ev­ery­thing paid in pounds so just have a look how much it dropped. Let’s say it dropped by 10 per cent, that’s cost me 10 per cent of my prize money straight away. So that’s quite a lot of money.” Dutch darter who has won £7m in his ca­reer is a bit wor­ried Brexit will make his bulging wal­let go on a diet.

Leg­end in mak­ing: Stand-in Manch­ester United foot­ball coach Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer has made an his­toric start at the club af­ter tak­ing over fol­low­ing the Jose Mour­inho de­ba­cle.

The United leg­end agreed to take the job in Fe­bru­ary 1945 but didn't play a league match un­til Au­gust 1946 due to World War II. United started the 1946-47 sea­son with a run of five straight vic­to­ries, which in­cluded a 5-0 win over Liver­pool.
