The silent protest Colin Kaepernick started over a month ago has grown into a full movement. On Sunday, Washington’s star wide receiver DeSean Jackson became the latest athlete to make a statement about police killings. He risks a fine from the NFL and perhaps more signifiant punishment by wearing special shoes painted with yellow caution tape for the team’s home game against Cleveland.
Pitchside pyrotechnics, pillars of popcorn and a mascot descending from the roof on a zip line. The National Football League celebrated a decade of regular-season games at Wembley as only it knows how. There was even a first win of this season for London’s ‘home’ team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, who survived a wild fourth-quarter rally to beat the Indianapolis Colts 30-27.
When Thomas Pieters struck his first tee shot at 11.26am local time, the 24‑year‑old became the first European rookie to play in all five sessions since Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Paul Lawrie and Sergio García at the Battle of Brookline in 1999.

The Spurs attacker is facing a make-or-break campaign.
To the Cicada des Arts, a sprawling cultural complex in Barra, to join the sweaty throng for Usain Bolt’s pre-Olympic press conference.

It was job done for Kohei Uchimura as the all-around genius of gymnastics finally filled in his Olympic gold collection with Japan’s first team gold since 2004.
