Hello and welcome to GiveMeSport - here are today's headlines.

We start with Formula 1 and it looks as though the sport's worst kept secret has been confirmed. Fernando Alonso's departure from Ferrari appears to have finally been confirmed by former chief Luca di Montezemolo. He's likely to sign for McLaren although the option of a year out ahead of potential talks with Mercedes hasn't been ruled out.

Dream over?

Next it looks like Steffon Armitage's hopes of playing for England in next year's World Cup are over. He's been named by Toulon for their clash against the Scarlets this weekend, meaning he would be cup tied which would effectively end Bath's interest in him.
