SOUTH African soccer coach Pitso Mosimane confirmed his status as the greatest coach to emerge from South Africa and one of the greatest to emerge from Africa as his Al Ahly side earned a convincing 3-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs in the CAF Champions League final last weekend. The Egyptian giants dominated the game for the most part with their goal not even threatened once. It was Mosimane’s third Champions League success and his second on the trot. His next stop from here should be to coach outside Africa, ideally in Europe. He has already won everything that there is to win in South African football and so should not return home. Shamsi stars in Proteas T20I series win over Ireland Tabraiz Shamsi’s 4-27 helped the Proteas to earn a 33-run win over Ireland in their first of three T20I games against the Irish yesterday. Batting first, the Proteas posted 165/7 as Aiden Markram top-scored with 39. Shamsi’s brilliant bowling with support from Lungi Ngidi (2-18) helped restrict the Irish to 132-9 in response. Sir Lewis will not relinquish World Championship easily Sir Lewis Hamilton suggested that he is not prepared to relinquish his Formula One World Drivers Championship easily as he won his home grand prix, the British Grand Prix, at the Silverstone Circuit last weekend. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc was second while Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas was third. It was a bad race for World Drivers Championship leader Max Verstappen who failed to get among the points following an early crash. Hamilton’s win reduces the gap between himself and Verstappen to just eight points. The next Grand Prix will be in Hungary in two weeks and there are still 11 races remaining before the season’s final race in Abu Dhabi, set for December. John Cena to make WWE comeback John Cena has barely featured in WWE in recent years as he focused on his career as a Hollywood movie actor. However, the 2000’s wrestling culthero returned to the WWE at the ‘Money in the Bank’ pay-per-view last weekend where he announced that he is back, and appeared to issue a challenge to reigning WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Cena’s return to professional wrestling comes after he concluded recent gigs in the movies F9 and Suicide Squad. His return was also part of a weekend where the WWE saw two sold-out shows, as fans returned to arenas.
