John Murray, from Liverpool, drove to the King Power stadium to offer up his tickets for Leicester's last home game this weekend.

John said it's "a once in a lifetime opportunity" for lucky Leicester supporter Pele Orton and his young son Orlando.

Salford City has been promoted to the sixth tier of English football for the first time.

Gary Neville was at Moor Lane to see Salford score twice in the final 12 minutes to beat Workington 3-2 in their Northern Premier League play-off final.

It means Salford will play in National League North next season.

'Class of 92' members Neville, brother Phil, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt took a 50 per cent stake in 2014.

The club were promoted last season and this term reached the FA Cup second round, featuring in live TV games against Notts County and Hartlepool United.

Man City hijack Man United deal for £46m midfielder

According to reports in Portugal, Pep Guardiola was so impressed with the 18 year old during Bayern Munich's two Champions League ties against Benfica that he instructed City officials to pursue the teenager immediately.

With the media reporting that United are on the brink of confirming the Portuguese international, it remains to be seen whether he favours a move to the blue half of Manchester.

After starring for Benfica's B team in 2014/15, Sanchez forced his way into the first team in October 2015, two months after celebrating his 18th birthday.

A string of commanding performances since then earned Sanches his first two senior Portugal caps as he began drawing comparisons with Paul Pogba, the French international whose loss at Old Trafford still rankles with the club's hierarchy.

One key factor in the chase for Sanches could boil down to whether Jose Mourinho replaces Louis van Gaal in the summer, since Mourinho and Sanches are both represented by Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes.

Cyclist Simon Yates has not received a suspension after failing a drugs test as his Orica-GreenEdge team try to clear up an administrative error.

Yates tested positive for terbutaline, which is being blamed on an inhaler he was using for his asthma, as his Australian team take full responsibility for the failed test.

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) confirms that British rider Simon Yates has been notified of an adverse analytical finding of terbutaline in a sample collected in the scope of an in-competition control on March 12, 2016.

As per the UCI's anti-doping rules, such substance does not entail the imposition of a provisional suspension.

The rider has the right to request and attend the analysis of the B sample.

At this stage of the procedure, the UCI won't comment any further.
