A round up of the latest news stories from across the world of sport.

Liverpool striker Luis Suarez says he wants to leave the club, accusing manager Brendan Rodgers of breaking a promise he made last summer, suggesting Suarez could leave if Champions League football wasn’t secured.

“I gave absolutely everything last season. Now all I want is for Liverpool to honour our agreement,” said Suarez.

Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is refusing to speak about on-going talks with Tottenham Hotspur, over a deal for Gareth Bale.

“I won't speak about Bale, because I have already angered him (Villas-Boas) and I don't want to anger another coach. I didn't say anything in particular and I prefer not to talk about this,” said the Italian.

England cricket coach Andy Flower says Kevin Pietersen will be well looked after. There have been big question marks over the number four’s fitness, with the batsman missing three out of eight Tests this year and only being passed fit for the last Ashes Test at the final moment.

Andy Murray says life hasn’t changed too much for him following his victory at Wimbledon. Murray holds two of the four Grand Slam titles and heads into the US Open, the final major of the season, looking to retain that title and push to become the number one ranked player in the world.

Surrey and Northamptonshire are the first sides through to the finals day of the Twenty20 Cup. Surrey defeated Somerset at the Oval while Northamptonshire produced a brilliant display to beat the much fancied Durham at home. Hampshire play Lancashire and Essex take on Nottinghamshire in the other quarter-finals.
