Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte might not have taken long to master the English Premier League, but the uber cool Italian still has a thing or two to learn about dealing with the press.
Conte's Chelsea extended their lead over the chasing pack to 8 points in the Premier League standings, but he may still have to wait a while before his hope of transfer rumours dies down.
A goal each from returning cult hero Diego Costa and on pitch skipper Gary Cahill powered Chelsea to a 2-0 win over a relegation threatened Hull City side that competed well against the Premier League leaders for large periods, but lacked that cutting edge in the final third to convert good play into goals.
Chelsea made just one change to the side that put three goals past Leicester City last weekend with transfer rumour victim Diego Costa returning to starting eleven in ...
Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya's heroic batting efforts went in vain as England produced a disciplined performance riding on an all-round show by Ben Stokes to defeat India by five runs in a nerve-wracking third One Day International at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.
However, with India having already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead after the first two games, it was only a consolation win for the visitors before a full house at the iconic Eden Gardens, where the track's bounc...
Sevilla managed to beat hosts Osasuna 4-3 in an exciting round 19 match of La Liga at El Sadar stadium on Sunday.

It was a typical Sunday afternoon for Arsenal fans at the Emirates, put through the wringer emotionally by the side they love, and rescued right at the death by Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez, who despite missing 3 of his last 4 penalties showed the calmness and petulance that one has come to expect with greatness as he stroked home the winner for the home team in the 98th minute of the game.
The opening hour of the match is exactly what one has come to expect from Arse...
Angelo Mathews played a gallant and heroic innings to lead Sri Lanka to the first victory of their tour when they beat South Africa by 3 wickets with two balls to spare in the second T20 International match at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium on Sunday. The series will now go to a decider at PPC Newlands on Wednesday when the Proteas will be strengthened by the return of AB de Villiers.
Mathews finished unbeaten on 54 (54 balls, 1 four and 3 sixes). It was his fifth half-cen...
American Coco Vandeweghe defeated defending champion and world no.1 Angelique Kerber in the fourth round of the Australian Open on Sunday. Vandeweghe eased past the 29 year old German 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the quarterfinals.
"I think it's my first win over a World No.1, I guess. I'll take it. I faked it a lot, because I was feeling a bit crap out there. You have to fake it until you make it. I just had to pick my spots and trust my game," Vandeweghe was quoted as saying ...
Former world no.1 Roger Federer dug in his heels to stop Japanese Kei Nishikori, rallying past the fifth seed 6-7(4), 6-4, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3, to enter the quarter-finals of the Australian Open on Sunday. Federer, a 17-time Grand Sam winner, won in three hours and 23 minutes.
Nishikori made a bright start to the match, breaking Federer's serve twice to race ahead to a 4-0 lead. Federer rebounded to break the Japanese superstar on both occasions that he tried to serve out the o...
Indian badminton star Saina Nehwal was forced to dig deep to overcome unseeded Thailand teenager Pornpawee Chochuwong in straight games to clinch the women's singles title of the Malaysia Masters Grand Prix Gold on Sunday.
The 26-year-old top seed utilised her bank of experience and her vintage never-say-die attitude to pull off a 22-20, 22-20 win in 46 minutes to bag her first title after making a comeback after a knee surgery she underwent in August.
Russian tennis player Anastasiya Pavlyuchenkova advanced to the Australian Open quarter-finals beating compatriot Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-3, 6-3 in Melbourne on Sunday.

Unseeded German Mischa Zverev produced a bold display of tennis to shock top seed Andy Murray 7-5, 5-7, 6-2, 6-4 in the fourth round of the Australian Open here on Sunday.
It was an inspired serve-and-volley performance from Zverev, egged on by his younger brother Alexander Zverev, who pushed World No. 9 Rafael Nadal to five sets before losing on Saturday.
