Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits the pressure is on after another disappointing defeat against Crystal Palace on Sunday made it the club's worst start to a league season in over 20 years. The Reds went down 3-1 at Selhurst Park despite going a goal up through Rickie Lambert, leaving them in 12th place in the Premier League table with just four wins from their opening 12 games. Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton says winning his second title is the start of something special for him and Mercedes. The 29-year-old was speaking after Sunday's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix win, which helped him clinch the series by 67 points following a season-long battle with team-mate Nico Rosberg. And finally, Chinese swimmer Sun Yang was banned for three months in May after the Olympic and World champion failed a doping test.
