Could this be Williams’ new-look 2023 livery?

Williams are set to unveil their 2023 challenger on February 6, in an event hosted by F1 presenter Will Buxton.

Chelsea reach “agreement in principle” for Enzo Fernandez’s record UK transfer

David Ornstein is reporting the news that we have been waiting for all day – and all month, in fact. According to his Tweet, Chelsea have reached an “agreement in principle” for Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez. The player had to push hard on his end, and Benfica (to their credit) clung on until the end. His release clause was €120m, but Chelsea didn’t want to pay the lump sum up front. That has led to days of negotiations – and in fact will mean that Chelsea end up paying significantly more than that. The final deal will be something like €125m, a UK transfer record. https://twitter.com/David_Ornstein/status/1620551264139612161 The transfer deadline has now passed – but with enough elements already in place, an extension to complete the details won’t be an issue. As we reported ear...

Tom Brady could make ‘crazy’ move if he shuns NFL retirement to play in 2023

Seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady is set to enter free agency for just the second time in his career and he will have no shortage of suitors to play for in 2023. Former NFL coach Rex Ryan believes Tom Brady could spurn retirement and join the Washington Commanders ahead of the 2023 season. Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers were comprehensively defeated 31-14 by the Dallas Cowboys to end his 23rd NFL season at the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs. As he left the field, Brady doffed his cap to the fans and kissed his parents before disappearing down the Raymond James Stadium tunnel, suggesting his time in Florida is set to be over after three years. The quarterback is rumoured to be considering retirement as he heads into the offseason, and he will take time before making his decis...

Rory McIlroy claims victory over old rival Patrick Reed with perfect start to the year

An ‘ecstatic’ Rory McIlroy enjoyed the perfect start to the year after holding off ‘tee-gate’ rival Patrick Reed to win a third Dubai Desert Classic. McIlroy birdied the final two holes at Emirates Golf Club to card a closing 68 and finish a shot clear of American Reed on 19 under par. Playing in the group ahead, Reed had also birdied the 18th to complete a superb 65 and set the clubhouse target, but McIlroy was not to be denied and holed from 15 feet on the last. McIlroy, who had never previously won on his first start of the calendar year, said: ‘I just managed my game so well and played really smart. ‘Just ecstatic I gave myself an opportunity the first week back out and there’s tonnes of room for improvement but it’s a great start to the year.
