“Welcome to Kenilworth Road, Luke!”

“He’s a fantastic character and a really good technical player; a left-footed, energetic midfielder who is attack minded.

“I’ve tried to sign Luke on two occasions before, wasn’t able to do it even though he had a real desire to do it on both occasions, I just couldn’t quite get there. To have finally got him is a big thing.

“He has come in to train with us, he has fitted in, he’s proved his fitness. And had a real desire of wanting to play for Luton, so we’re excited by it.

Freeman after completing his medical at The Brache, said: “The gaffer has asked me to come down here and I jumped at the opportunity to. I’ve really enjoyed my time so far.

“Hopefully I can add to the quality that is already here. The gaffer and the staff have done an unbelievable job over the last few years. So hopefully I can help the team move in the right direction. And maybe go one further this year.”

The club’s owner Frank McCourt stated: “Today, OM is in a stronger situation thanks to the leadership of President Pablo Longoria.

As Jorge hands over, I wish him well and express my gratitude for what he has done, together with the players and the club’s supporters, to take OM to a new and exciting stage.

Preston North End have completed the signing of Ben Woodburn from Liverpool. The club confirmed: “Preston North End are delighted to confirm the signing of Ben Woodburn on a one-year deal, with the club having the option of an extra year.”

Ben said: “I’m very excited for the deal to be done. Obviously I’ve been on trial for a week now and things have gone pretty well. So I’m buzzing to get started as a Preston player.

“Obviously when I got called and told I could come and train, I was buzzing. I wanted to show the gaffer what I could do, luckily I’ve earned a contract out of it.

“He’s tried to get me at his older clubs a few times and unfortunately things haven’t worked out there, but now we can work together and I’m a fan of how he plays football, so I’m really excited to get going.”

Manager Ryan Lowe said: “Ben’s someone I’ve taken a real interest. In over the past few years since he burst on to the scene at Liverpool at a young age.

“He can play in numerous positions. He can play as a ten, just off the striker. Or in any of the eight positions, whether it be left or right.

“He’s probably even capable of playing right wing back, so he’s someone who can play a few positions which is always nice, but ultimately he’s an attack-minded player who we feel can create and score goals.”

Cricket News: Rishabh Pant is the first Indian goalkeeper to achieve this incredible feat since 1973

Cricket News: So far, Team India has been the superior side in the ongoing Test against England at Edgbaston, with the tourists extending their lead to over 350 runs in their second innings. Rishabh Pant has been the driving force behind the Indian unit’s outstanding performance. With his counterattacking approach, the wicketkeeper-batter took the momentum away from the hosts, and it will be interesting to see if England can fight their way back into the game.

In terms of Pant, the wicketkeeper-batter was chastised during India’s recent white-ball series against South Africa. However, the 24-year-old produced an outstanding knock in difficult conditions, becoming the first Indian wicketkeeper-batter since Farokh Engineer to score a century and a fifty in the same Test match. Engineer had done it against England in 1973 at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.

Rishabh Pant scored 146 off 111 balls in the first innings and went on to pile up 57 off 86 deliveries in the second before being caught by Jack Leach. With this, he became the second wicketkeeper-batter, after Dhoni, to score 50 or more runs in both innings of a Test match at the venue. The former India captain did the same thing over a decade ago, scoring 77 and 74* in a Test match that India lost by an innings and 242 runs.

He also became the fourth Indian wicketkeeper to score 50 or more in both innings of a Test match. Dilawar Hussain, Farokh Engineer, Dhoni, and Wriddhiman Saha are among those on the list.

Apart from Pant, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also performed admirably in his first official match since returning from injury. The left-handed batter scored 104 off 194 deliveries in the first innings as India recovered from 98/5 to post a massive 416 all-out total.

In response, England were bowled out for 284 runs, with Jonny Bairstow smashing a century. Before lunch on Day 4, India was batting at 229/7 in their second innings.

NBA News: Brittney Griner sends a letter to President Joe Biden pleading for his help

NBA News: Brittney Griner wrote to President Joe Biden in a letter sent through her representatives, saying she feared she would never return home.

The letter also requests that President Biden keep her and the other American detainees in mind. Lindsay Kagawa Colas, Griner’s agent, said the letter was delivered on Monday.

The majority of the contents of Griner’s letter to President Biden remain private, though Griner’s representatives did share a few lines from the handwritten note.

“As I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I’m terrified I might be here forever,” Griner wrote.

“On July 4, our family normally honours the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran,” the Phoenix Mercury centre added.

“It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year.”

The two-time Olympic gold medalist is on trial in Russia, where she was arrested on February 17 on suspicion of possessing cannabis oil while returning to play for her Russian team.

On Thursday, the trial will resume. Fewer than 1% of defendants in Russian criminal cases are acquitted, and acquittals can be reversed, unlike in US courts.

Brittney Griner begged Biden in the letter to use his influence to secure her return.

“Please do all you can to bring us home,” Griner wrote. “I voted for the first time in 2020 and I voted for you. I believe in you. I still have so much good to do with my freedom that you can help restore.

“I miss my wife! I miss my family! I miss my teammates! It kills me to know they are suffering so much right now. I am grateful for whatever you can do at this moment to get me home.”

Griner has been able to communicate with family, friends, and WNBA players on a sporadic basis via an email account set up by her agent. After being vetted by Russian officials, the emails are printed out and delivered in batches to Griner by her lawyer.

When the lawyers return to their office, they scan any responses from Griner and forward them to the US.

She was supposed to call her wife on their anniversary, but it didn’t happen due to an unfortunate error, according to Biden administration officials.

Griners supporters have advocated for a prisoner swap similar to the one that brought back Marine veteran Trevor Reed in exchange for a Russian pilot convicted of drug trafficking conspiracy in April.

In May, the State Department designated her as wrongfully detained, transferring her case to the special presidential envoy for hostage affairs, effectively the government’s chief hostage negotiator.

Wimbledon: Nick Kyrgios wins in five sets to advance to the quarterfinals

Wimbledon: Nick Kyrgios defeated Brandon Nakashima in five sets to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals, but he was plagued by a shoulder injury that could jeopardise his chances of progressing further.

After the drama and recriminations of his match against Stefanos Tsitsipas, this was a much calmer affair, with Kyrgios largely controlling his behaviour on Centre Court to reach the last eight of a Grand Slam for the first time in seven years.

During the first set, it was clear that Kyrgios was in pain, but he recovered to win the decider against 20-year-old American Nakashima, winning 4-6 6-4 7-6 (7-2) 3-6 6-2 to advance to the quarter-finals against Chile’s Cristian Garin.

“It wasn’t near my best performance, level-wise, but I’m just super, super happy to get through,” Kyrgios said on court.

“I’ve never lost the fifth set here. Honestly, that’s what I was thinking about. I was like, I’ve been here before I’ve done it before and I came through again.”

Asked about facing Garin, he said: “I’m not going to think about that. I’m going to need a glass of wine tonight for sure.”

Despite the shoulder problem, there was still some showboating – an underarm serve in only his second service game and a completely unnecessary between-the-legs shot in the fifth game of the second set – but it was clear Kyrgios had other plans.

The 27-year-old began grimacing and holding his shoulder, and a half-hearted service game saw him broken to lose the first set.

After three games of the second set, he called the trainer and took a couple of pills, by which time he was unexpectedly a break ahead thanks to two double faults from his opponent.

Even a bad line call elicited only a raised eyebrow from Nick Kyrgios, who began to look more at ease and increase his service speeds as he levelled the match.

After five games of the third set, the trainer returned to the court, and Kyrgios did take a medical time-out to have his shoulder worked on.

The trainer continued to massage the Australian’s shoulder at the end of each set, but he was still serving well and was two sets to one up after an excellent tie-break.

Nakashima, whose expression had barely changed throughout, stayed in the match and was rewarded with a break of serve in the seventh game of the fourth set.

Kyrgios let his emotions show by ranting at his support camp, and his focus was completely gone when he dropped serve again two games later, rolling in serves, including one underarm effort, and slapping groundstrokes away.

He came alive again at the start of the decider, breaking Nakashima’s serve to lead 2-1 after briefly sparring with umpire Nico Helwerth over a line call and being told to “stop moaning” by one spectator.

When he broke again two games later, the crowd was completely behind him, and he did not look back as he maintained his record of never losing a five-set match at Wimbledon.

He has previously reached the last eight at two Grand Slams, first at Wimbledon in 2014 and then at the Australian Open the following year, losing both times.

Kyrgios started during his press conference that he is mentally prepared to go even further at the All England Club.

Wimbledon: Rafael Nadal cruises to date with Taylor Fritz

Wimbledon: Rafael Nadal advanced to his eighth Wimbledon quarter-final, where he will face Taylor Fritz, while 2019 champion Simona Halep returned to Centre Court with a vengeance.

Nadal beat Dutchman Botic van de Zandschulp to win the French Open last month, and he repeated the feat at the All England Club with a 6-4 6-2 7-6 (8-6) victory.

The Spaniard’s victory over the Dutchman in two hours and 22 minutes brought the proceedings on Centre Court to a close two hours before the 11 pm curfew that threatened to put defending champion Novak Djokovic in limbo on Sunday and ensured the Spaniard stayed on track for the calendar year Grand Slam.

It sets up a rematch with Fritz, who defeated Nadal in the Indian Wells final in March while suffering from a stress fracture in a rib. To make it to SW19, he needed radio-wave treatment on a nerve in his left foot last month, but constant talk of his fitness is wearing on the 22-time major champion.

It sets up a rematch with Fritz, who defeated Nadal in the Indian Wells final in March while suffering from a stress fracture in a rib. To make it to SW19, he needed radio-wave treatment on a nerve in his left foot last month, but constant talk of his fitness is wearing on the 22-time major champion.

“It takes a lot of mental and physical effort to try to play in this tournament after what I’ve been through in the last few months.” But, as everyone knows, Wimbledon is my favourite tournament.

“I have been three years without playing here. I really wanted to be back. That’s what I am doing. So that’s why it means a lot for me to be in the quarter-finals.”

Fritz, the 11th seed from the United States, easily defeated Australia’s Jason Kubler 6-3 6-1 6-4 to reach his first Grand Slam quarter-final.

“My first Grand Slam quarter-final, that’s really a big deal,” Fritz, who has yet to drop a set in the tournament, said.

“Part of the final eight and… I’m glad I could get the win on the Fourth of July, being American.”

After winning the Wimbledon warm-up tournament in Eastbourne, Fritz won his eighth straight match on grass.

Halep crashes Badosa on her return to Centre Court to reach the quarterfinals

Simona Halep, playing on Centre Court for the first time since winning the title in 2019, advanced to the quarter-finals with a 6-1 6-2 win over world No 4 Paula Badosa, extending her All England Club winning streak to 11 matches.

The Romanian smashed 17 winners, limited her errors, and broke Badosa’s serve five times to win in just under an hour.

“It was the place that I wanted to be today. I think I played a great match,” Halep said. “It’s always tough to play against her, she’s a great player.

“Always nervous before, but I enjoyed a lot to be back on Centre Court, in front of this beautiful crowd, always supporting me. It’s a pleasure to be back here.”

Because of Badosa’s shocking defeat, No. 3 seed Ons Jabeur is the only top-10 seed remaining in the women’s tournament.

Halep will face Amanda Anisimova, the last American woman standing, in the quarterfinals on Thursday.

Wimbledon: Cameron Norrie faces David Goffin in the quarter-finals

Wimbledon: Cameron Norrie is carrying the torch alone, but the British No. 1 is confident of reaching his first Grand Slam semi-final when he faces David Goffin on Tuesday at Wimbledon.

Norrie, seeded ninth after a stellar 18 months, defeated Pablo Andujar before overcoming a two-set deficit to defeat Jaume Munar in the second round.

However, the 26-year-old has been rock solid in defeating Steve Johnson before producing his best performance of the fortnight so far in defeating American 30th seed Tommy Paul 6-4 7-5 6-4 and setting up a very winnable match against Belgian Goffin.

Following Heather Watson’s defeat on Centre Court earlier in the day, Norrie found himself in the increasingly familiar position of being the last Briton standing.

When asked if he would carry the torch alone, Norrie replied, “I’ll take it.” You guys were asking me at the start of the tournament, ‘You’re British No. 1, you’ve got a lot of pressure, a lot of expectations on your shoulders.’ It means a lot to me to have performed so well in all of my previous matches.

“Unfortunately I’m the last one standing. But I think it’s even more reason for everyone to get behind me. The atmosphere was great today and definitely helped me get over the line there.

“Especially on that last game, I was obviously pretty nervous. I was serving for my first quarter-final of a Slam. I wanted to get it done there.”

Goffin is a high-level opponent when he is at his best, having been a top-10 player and now a four-time Grand Slam quarter-finalist, but he has recently been hampered by injuries.

Norrie isn’t ready to call it quits on his Wimbledon adventure just yet, saying, “It’s great to be through to the quarters.” But that’s no reason to be happy. I’d like to keep pushing.

“I’m looking forward to the next match. Another challenge. Very experienced player. There’s still a long way to go, but pretty nice to tick the box making the quarters.

“I feel like I’m improving and my level is getting better. Definitely a little bit calmer in the bigger matches. It’s nice to do it that way round.”

Goffin, 31, missed Wimbledon last year due to an ankle injury and then missed several months due to a knee injury, but he reached the quarter-finals for the first time since 2019, coming through a gruelling five-set match against American Frances Tiafoe in four hours and 36 minutes.

Now, the 58th-ranked 31-year-old is looking forward to his big day on Centre Court, when he will take on Norrie and the “whole country.”

“I have another opportunity to play on Centre Court to try to have a win, finally to have a win on Centre Court. I didn’t have any chances. I had [Andy] Murray and I had [Novak] Djokovic. Not easy,” said the former world No 7.

“Another British, against Cameron. He played less than me. He played well from the start of the tournament. He played really well. He’s very consistent. He’s a tough opponent to play, but I will try to recover. That’s the most important now, today and tomorrow, try to be ready to play against the whole country.”
