Joel Makin faces a Group decider at the CIB PSA World Tour finals in Cairo after losing his second match. The 25-year-old from Haverfordwest was beaten 2-0 (11-8, 11-6) in 48 minutes by Egypt's fifth seed Marwan ElShorbagy.
Ryan Giggs admits he was playing the long game when he agreed with Tottenham that Gareth Bale should be left out of the Wales squad. The Wales manager will be without his captain, talisman and match-winner for the England friendly on October 8 and the following Nations League games away to the Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria. It comes after Bale is yet to make his second debut for Spurs since rejoining the London club on a season-long loan from Real Madrid earlier this month.

Swansea City coach Alan Tate will sit out most of October in the stands – and be almost £1,000 lighter in the pocket – after being found guilty of violent conduct by the Football Association. One of head coach Steve Cooper’s right-hand men, Tate will be missing from the technical area for upcoming games against Millwall, Huddersfield, Coventry and Bristol City. Tate’s punishment comes after he was caught on camera at the Liberty Stadium on September 19 in an altercation with Birmingham City’s Jon Toral.
A speculative tweet to the organisers of the Virgin Money London Marathon has led to a Cardiff distance runner taking part in a unique race involving the world’s greatest athletes.
