Our first stop is snooker, where we caught up with a young player who’s making serious waves in the sport.

Kyren Wilson beat Graeme Dott to secure his first ever showing at the World Championships in Sheffield, where he was narrowly beaten by Ricky Walden 10-7. Wilson told GiveMeSport T.V that he was still getting over the unique experience, and will do all he can to ensure he’s participating once more next year.

Now to boxing and Amir Khan has spoken out on the possibility of fighting former stable-mate Manny Pacquiao in the near future.

The general consensus was that the Brit would take on Floyd Mayweather if he’s successful in his upcoming fight, but he believes that a bout with Pacquiao could be made despite the fact that the two men are friends. Khan used to be coached by Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach.

And finally Andy Murray broke into tears after he was awarded the freedom of Stirling award for his efforts in Tennis. The Scot was given the honour upon a visit to the area where he grew up, and became a freeman of the city in a special meeting with Stirling council. He said that it meant a lot to him to be recognised.
