Anyone who found themselves in possession of Wimbledon tickets this weekend must have been delighted to witness an electrifying match between Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz, with the GOAT losing to the kid 😁 in a final that looked like history in the making.

But June also saw its fair share of notable moments! While Frankie Dettori wasn’t able to secure a final Derby win to end his career, trainer Aidan O’Brien achieved a record-extending ninth Derby triumph. After a year of disruption in the men’s professional game, The PGA Tour, DP World Tour and LIV Golf surprised the sporting world with the announcement that they will merge to form “a new collectively owned” entity.

Meanwhile, we were able to catch up with Dr Mark Gillett just before he embarked on the gruelling Tour 21 challenge. You can read the interview with Mark here. []
