Durant and Curry sink LeBron's Cavs as Warriors reclaim National Basketball Association championship

The Warriors have defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 129-120 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals , clinching their second title in three years and their fifth in team history.

Draymond Green calls Cavaliers fans 'just rude' after mother's altercation

The Golden State Warriors' forward responded Thursday to his mother being harassed by Cavs fans as time expired following their 118-113 win to take a commanding 3-0 series lead.

Spaniard Rafael Nadal bags historic 10th French Open crown


A year after probably the lowest point of his career, Rafael Nadal sat in the same news conference seat to describe his 10th French Open title as one of his most special. Nadal said with a smile. On clay, it's 7-1. At that time, and with his ranking sliding, his grand slam-winning days seemed numbered. Nadal, never one to fuel the hype, warned against installing him as a favourite on the Wimbledon lawns where he has also lost three finals; especially as his recent record there is ... Read More »
