(Reuters) - Britain's Jessica Ennis-Hill does not expect to receive an apology from Tatyana Chernova after the Russian heptathlete was stripped of her 2011 world title for a doping violation but she is eager to get her hands on the gold medal. Chernova won heptathlon gold ahead of Ennis-Hill at the 2011 World Championships but was stripped of the medal along with her bronze in the 2012 London Olympics by the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) in November due to blood doping. Chernova has not issued a public apology after her ban and Ennis-Hill said she was not counting on getting one.
European Union leaders will insist Britain grant permanent residence to EU citizens who arrive before Brexit in 2019 and stay five more years, according to a draft negotiating plan they will endorse this weekend. In the latest sign of the bloc cranking up pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May to guarantee full rights after Britain's departure for the 3 million EU nationals living there, new draft guidelines include wording that diplomats said aims to head off any British move to cut immigrant numbers by forcing people out. The nine-page document, seen by Reuters on Tuesday and which officials do not expect to be significantly changed before May's 27 EU peers sign off on it over lunch in Brussels on Saturday, was also revised on Monday to make clear there is no guarantee that a future EU-UK free trade deal will give Britain's big financial services industry access to the bloc.

Over the last two decades, the public has grown accustomed to having no idea who the other person involved in a Serena Williams match is. Is this man worthy of Serena Williams? According to those in the know, Williams and Ohanian have been dating for over a year, having met “at a lunch” by chance in Rome last autumn, shortly after she ended a brief dalliance with the Canadian rapper Drake (who is now seeing Jennifer Lopez, having split with Rihanna this summer, which makes him a sort of male Taylor Swift - only he gets away with it).
It's always a shame to see a player limp out of a match due to injury, perhaps more so when it's one of the greatest footballers in the world.
