Adele Nicoll is already an international athlete in two sports, but it would seem a reasonable bet to place on her one day making it a hat-trick. Adele said hello to bobsleigh after first emerging as a talented track and field athlete and she finds trying new sports just as satisfying as winning.

Elfyn Evans had admitted to more feelings of frustration after reflecting on finishing fourth at Rally Finland. Evans had been fighting for victory until he clipped a rock on Saturday’s penultimate stage – the impact with an inside wheel breaking a damper on his Toyota GR Yaris Rally1 Hybrid.

Luton went ahead on 30 minutes courtesy of a stunning 35-yard drive into the top corner by Carlos Mendes Gomes, but were pegged back six minutes later as Lewis Collins equalised.

From the weather to the welcome . . . with a huge dollop of world class sport in between.
