FOTA concern at Bahrain decision

Motor Racing: The Bahrain Grand Prix could find itself back in limbo as the Formula One Teams' Association has finally voiced its concern.

FOTA, an umbrella organisation that represents 11 of the 12 teams with the exception of Hispania Racing, also has firm legal ground on which to stand.

That is despite the apparent unanimous decision taken by the 26-man World Motor Sport Council in Barcelona on Friday to reinstate the race on this year's calendar.

Prior forgiven for bat incident

cricket: The student who was hit by broken glass when Matt Prior accidentally smashed a dressing-room window yesterday has moved to draw a line under the incident.

Prior caused a furore when a bat discarded following his dismissal against Sri Lanka ricocheted against a window, sending shattered glass into the MCC members -- among them 22-year-old Emma Baker. She said: "Matt Prior has said he is sorry and I've accepted that."

Berdych edges it

tennis: Second seed Tomas Berdych was rattled by Belgian qualifier Ruben Bemelmans before making the second round of the Gerry Weber Open in Halle.
