Sports Update

It proved to be a great weekend for British sporting stars, as in addition to Andy Murray winning Wimbledon, Lewis Hamilton claimed a third consecutive British Grand Prix win at Silverstone yesterday. Hamilton finished six seconds ahead of team mater Rosberg and Red Bull's Max Verstappen chased Rosberg home in third, only two seconds adrift. Hamilton has now won four of the last five GP and his win this weekend meant he closed the gap on team mate Rosberg at the top of the Drivers Championship down to four points.

There are eleven GP remaining and it's going to be a fascinating battle between now and the end of the season, especially team tactics and orders with the tension between both drivers never higher.

Portugal, who lost talisman Ronaldo early in Sunday's final due to injury, shocked hosts France in their backyard when their extra-time winner from Eder proved to be the decisive strike that landed them Euro 2016 and an elusive first International tournament win. France looked to have the upper-hand throughout normal time, but Griezmann, who had been so deadly in front of goal prior to yesterday's final, missed a couple of guilt edge chances and it proved not to be his night.

France on any other night would have scored at least once given their possession and shots on target during the 120 minutes however, Portugal keeper Rui Patricio proved to be their downfall and he was brilliant throughout denying the hosts on numerous occasions with a string of world class saves.
