    The New Zealand men's rowing eight have qualified for the Tokyo Olympics after winning their final at what's known as the Regatta of Death in Lucerne

    The New Zealand men's rowing eight have qualified for the Tokyo Olympics after winning their final at what's known as the Regatta of Death in Lucerne

    The move comes as the Israel-Palestine conflict escalates.

    Penrith have become the first NRL league side in 25 years to start a season with 10 straight wins after a 48-12 triumph over Gold Coast.

    French Tennis Open champion Iga Swiatek has tuned up for the defence of her title in Paris next month by beating Karolina Pliskova 6-love 6-love to win the Italian Open.

    British boxer Tyson Fury says Saudi Arabian authorities have given the final sign-off to host his world heavyweight title showdown with Anthony Joshua on August 14.
