Hello and welcome to the GiveMeSport report - bring you the latest headlines from the world of sport.

We start off with rugby and England are facing an injury crisis ahead of their tour to New Zealand next month.

Hooker Tom Youngs won't make the trip to the southern hemisphere in order to stay with his wife Tiffany, who requires treatment for an illness. Alex Corbisiero, Tom Croft, Jack Nowell and Christian Wade will also be absent.

Andy Murray has paid a moving tribute to Elena Baltacha - the former women's British number one who died from liver cancer last week after his win at the Madrid masters last night.

Lewis Hamilton has been 'close to perfection' in 2014 according to former driver Nigel Mansell. 

And finally an attempt by the England cricket board to engage with fans has backfired badly.

They invited supporters to ask coach Peter Moores questions using the hashtag 'ask moores' - only for users to send in a flood of questions about Kevin Pietersen's departure.
