His family say he is responding well to treatment.
If we want children to engage in more sport to live healthier lives, then it doesn't help to have any confusion over definitions. I realise that not all sports are very physical, but gaming is already extremely popular and the issue of children being stuck to screens needs to be mitigated, not made worse.
The announcement of BT's £1.2bn deal to retain the UEFA Champions League and Europa League until 2020/21 finally cements the company's status as a permanent fixture in the UK TV sports market.

Going to Pay to View does not deny people the opportunity to watch altogether, but the money that it brings, if well spent, can provide thousands with new opportunities to get involved: in this respect, it seems that pay to view broadcasting can be the egalitarian way, after all.
Paul Scholes has admitted punditry commitments next season have all but ended the chance of him joining Louis van Gaal's
Yippee, just what we need - more live football. Don't get me wrong, I love football. I love watching football, but there is nothing better than getting out there and attending a game, no matter the level.
This season's FA Cup has been fascinating viewing and a return to the good old days when giant-killings and Cup shocks seemed to happen every year. With many Barclay's Premier League sides being drawn against each other in early rounds it has also provided a chance for less-fancied teams and those outside the top flight...
The idea that success comes more easily to some than others, has always made me laugh. Anybody who has reached the pinnacle of their chosen profession has had to work hard for it and you can be sure that somewhere along the line they felt like quitting. I know this because I've been there.

Riding motorbikes is a great leveller. It doesn't matter who you are, what you do, or where you're from, motorbikes really bond people. But they do more than that. They can also save lives. It's no secret that I love mucking about on bikes; I work with a UK charity called Riders for Health (RFH) and when I heard they needed a hand taking a bike to a health worker in a remote African village - I was more than happy to help.

As a messed up young man, I made some poor life choices that led to me being expelled. Rugby came at a time when I badly needed guidance and support. That's why I set up Dallaglio Foundation's Rugby for Change project. With the help of money raised by The Supporters Club, BT Sport's charitable initiative, we help young people who have been excluded or expelled from school, and who need some inspiration to make positive life choices.
The Premier League has announced its televised fixture schedule for the much-loved Christmas and New Year period. One of
Growing up as a kid I have many fond memories of my granddad taking me to watch the Stoke City games, and now I take my son. Football can be such a great bonding experience, but for many children around the world it means something much more.
