Tottenham Hotspur have revealed that the club will be the star of an upcoming All or Nothing documentary, hosted on Amazon Prime.

The club will follow in the footsteps of Manchester City, whose first title-winning season under manager Pep Guardiola was captured by the All or Nothing cameras.

The series will give an insight into the team’s first full season in their new Tottenham Hotspur stadium and will be produced by 72 Films in collaboration with NFL films. The new stadium has also hosted American football games in its inaugural season.

The PGA Tour experimented with a format differing from its normal 72-hole tournament as the first MGM Resorts The Challenge: Japan Skins took place in the country. Ahead of the ZOZO Challenge, the event took place on the same course, Accordia Golf Narashino in Chiba, to the east of the capital Tokyo.

The skins format, which sees players compete against each other for a specified set of money on each hole - with the lowest score winning the money - was part of the PGA Tour until 2008, and has been reprised in the build-up to the tour’s first official event in Japan.

Surrey Cricket has confirmed that the OCS Stand at the Kia Oval will be renamed as part of the club’s 175th anniversary celebrations.

The stand, which was built in 2005, will be named the 1845 Stand as part of wider celebrations which will include the announcement of a fans’ All-Time XI, with the players named in the side becoming the first intake into the club’s new Hall of Fame.

Six Day Series, the professional track cycling league, has announced Eurosport and BBC Sport as its UK broadcasters for 2019/20 season.

The BBC will cover the event for the first time on its digital channels, while Eurosport will continue as lead broadcaster for the series across Europe and Asia-Pacific.
