World of Sport

Often some of the funniest, most interesting and quirky moments in sport go almost unnoticed, rarely featured in reports or blog posts.

So here are five ridiculous things you may not have already seen or heard about from the last few days.

Did you see anything particularly noteworthy that passed off without mention? Feel free to bring it to our attention in the comments section below...

Caroline Wozniacki has seemingly taken a delicious swipe at ex-fiancee Rory McIlroy - by wearing a pair of high heels while on a shopping trip.

The former world number one posted a picture of herself shopping with a friend in Istanbul, where she is competing in the Istanbul Cup.

Wozniacki said: "Out and about in Istanbul. It's been three years since I have worn high heels on a normal day out. #feelsgood #looksgood #shopping #highheels #sun."

Wozniacki and McIlroy went out together for three years and she is one inch taller than the Northern Irish golfer.

She later deleted the post on Instagram, in many ways confirming suspicions that she was being a tad cheeky about her ex.

Is there any better honour than being covered in slime by Nickelodeon? Surprisingly there is: golden slime.

David Beckham and family received the highest honour during the Kids' Choice Sports Awards. While accepting the Legend Award, Beckham and his two sons, Romeo and Cruz, were recipients of a terrific sliming.

He took it with remarkably good grace, simply saying: "If you have dreams and you believe in yourself, your dreams can come true. Thank you very much."

Ah yes, this was the glorious action shot...

3) OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHH, YESSSSSSSS! - Gary Neville celebrates honorary doctorate at university

Gary Neville has added a doctor of science award to his career honours after a ceremony at the University of Salford.

His interests in sustainable business design of his own homes, which led to him starting a design practice (Zerum) in 2005, and his founding of the Sustainability in Sport foundation led to the recognition from the Salford Business School.

"I’m very pleased to receive an honorary degree from the University of Salford,” Neville said.

"I’ve had a strong affiliation with Salford ever since I joined Manchester United as a youth player in 1991 and I’m delighted to be involved more closely with the city’s community through Salford City FC and now as an honorary graduate at the University.”

4) OOPS, I ONLY WENT OUT FOR A BITE! - Luis Suarez gets locked out of his house, has to spend time with fans

There's only one thing worse than getting locked out of your house, and that's having to chat to fans outside and pose for pictures.

While this painful experience may not be encountered by any of us mere mortals, that's exactly what happened to Luis Suarez when he forgot his keys.

Suarez has been staying with his wife’s parents in Castelldefels – a small town 20km outside of Barcelona - but when he went out for a bite to eat he clearly mislaid a key item. Whoops!

5) NEED A GOALSCORER? JUST SIGN THIS KEEPER... - Sao Paulo shot-stopper scores 118th career goal


Rogério Ceni scores yet again... by eksoxiko

If you are in charge of a club desperately searching for a new goalscorer just turn your attention to Sao Paulo’s Rogerio Ceni.

Okay, so he's a goalkeeper, but why should that matter? On Thursday he stepped up against Bahia to bag his 118th career goal.

The 41-year-old is an out-and-out set-piece specialist, and he opened the scoring with a penalty in the 13th minute at Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova. There's just no stopping him!
