LIGHTNING BOLT'S PICTURE PERFECT PERFORMANCE
There were no surprises at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow as Usain Bolt recorded a run of 9.77 seconds to win the 100m and banish memories of his false-start ordeal in South Korea two years ago. What was notable, however, was a quite remarkable photo by AFP's Olivier Morin, who took the kind of snap that makes careers. If you don't get it at first glance, have a look at what's forking through the sky as Bolt runs at the Luzhniki Stadium. Lightning Bolt indeed.
UNITED RELIANT ON ROBIN, ONCE AGAIN
New season, new manager, new kit ... same old Robin van Persie. The Dutchman proved the difference once again for Manchester United as his two goals settled a rather sterile Community Shield. Okay, so it was against a relegated Wigan side, but Van Persie showed his class with a fine header and then a rather fortunate deflection. David Moyes, to his credit, said it was a trophy that should go down under Sir Alex Ferguson's tally, rather than being his first - after all, it was his predecessor who won last season's title...
DUF MAN EXORCISES GHOSTS
More silverware was on offer at Oak Hill where Jason Dufner became a distinctly laid-back winner of the US PGA Championship when beating compatriot Jim Furyk on the way to a 10-under total of 268 over four days. Dufner lost in a play-off two years ago after a spectacular collapse but had the demeanour of a man playing a practice round as he strolled around the course. He was equally relaxed when engaging with his media responsibilities afterwards. A golf Major? It's nothing to get excited about.

The fourth Ashes Test continues in Durham with England building a lead of 202 with five second-innings wickets remaining thanks to a fine 102 not out from Ian Bell. Will they push on for a big total, potentially opening up a 3-0 series lead, or will Australia keep them to a manageable score? Play begins at 11am.
After the Community Shield gave us a taste for some real football after a long summer, Wednesday's friendly between England and Scotland is now eagerly anticipated. Roy Hodgson holds a press conference this afternoon when he will fend off vacuous questions about Wayne Rooney's club future as everyone ignores the fact the oldest international football fixture is taking place for the first time in the 21st century.
