    Argentina's beaten the United States 47-17.



    Tom Abercrombie may have missed out on winning with the Breakers in Memphis, but he's garnered plenty of respect from fans in the United States.

    It's since been played on ESPN's SportsCenter.

    Russia's men have clinched their first team title at the gymnastics world championships, vaulting past China in the finals at Stuttgart.



    To Wag-watch...

    Coleen Rooney, wife of English footballer Wayne, has created her own "whodunit?" plot to uncover who was leaking news off her private Instagram account.

    Dubbed "Wagatha Christie", she's admitted to planting false stories while painstakingly blocking every other follower, bar one.

    In a Scooby-Doo ending, Rooney's accused Rebekah Vardy, wife of Jamie, one of her husband's England teammates as the culprit.

    Vardy's denied the allegation.
