F1: And F1 legend Michael Schumacher is steadily on the road to recovery after his life-threatening skiing accident, as confirmed by French physician Jean-Francois Payen.

Balotelli fine

If you’re a Liverpool fans you’ll likely still be smarting from last night’s 3-0 humbling at the hands of Real Madrid. The point you’ll be most angry about however is sure to be Mario Balotelli, who once again produced a tepid display in front of a rowdy home crowd.

Reds supporters might be happy to hear that the Italian is set to be fined for audaciously swapping shirts with Madrid defender Pepe at half-time, as the club are said to be equally frustrated with his actions.

Fury wants Joshua

Tyson Fury has brashly called out rising superstar Anthony Joshua, offering to fight the 25-year-old in December after his bout with Dereck Chisora. The heavyweight giant broke his silence to tell promoter Eddie Hearn to put up or shut up on Twitter after Hearn said that Joshua would destroy Fury if the two ever met in a ring.

Djokovic boost/ Federer blow

Roger Federer may have been hoping against hope that Novak Djokovic’s commitments as a would-be father would be prolonged until he could climb above the Serbian in the ATP rankings, but his prayers have fallen on deaf ears.

Djokovic’s son was born yesterday and, whilst the tennis world celebrated the occasion, it means that he will be back in action for both the Paris-Bercy and ATP World Tour Finals, making Federer’s task significantly harder.

Schumacher recovery

Finally F1 received a welcoming boost by way of news that legendary driver Michael Schumacher is on the mend. Physician Jean-Francois Payen, who treated the German during the early stages of his recovery from a serious skiing accident, said that it could take three years for the recovery to be complete after visiting Schumacher’s home in Switzerland to track his progress.
