The 2010 World Cup just keeps dishing up non-stop action and dominated the weekend’s proceedings. Much fancied Brazil were sent home by the Netherlands who blew them away with a dynamic second half performance. Uruguay cheated their way into a penalty shoot-out with Ghana after Suarez thought he was a goal-keeper, from there Ghana sadly missed three penalties to bow out.

Rafael Nadal won his second Wimbledon title with Serena Williams out-muscling the ladies in the other draw.
