• Dynamic duo had fallen out during league match
• Basel run riot against 10-man Benfica
PSG’s coach Unai Emery said his side’s Champions League victory over Bayern Munich had fulfilled their desire to lead Group B. The French side won 3-0 with goals from Dani Alves, Edinson Cavani and Neymar.
“We took three points tonight, that’s a good thing,” said Emery. “We wanted to win to take the lead of this group, it is done. It was important for our supporters to enjoy this evening. We were able to adapt tactically against Bayern, who played high [up the pitch] against us.”

- Playmaker left out of Australia’s extended Bledisloe Cup training squad
- Eleven uncapped players named by coach Michael Cheika
Quade Cooper has been omitted from Michael Cheika’s extended Wallabies squad ahead of next month’s Bledisloe Cup opener against the All Blacks, although the coach indicated the decision would not spell the end of the flashy but often unpredictable playmaker’s international career.
The move leaves Bernard Foley as the only specialist flyhalf in the extended squad picked by Cheika for a series of training camps starting north of Sydney next week. Kurtley Beale, a utility back who recently returned from England, was recalled to the squad for the first time since the 2015 World Cup and is only other potential No10 in the initial group.

• Scots down Wallabies 24-19 in Sydney Test match
• ‘Against a team that brilliant in attack you need strong bonds’
Scotland beat Australia for the first time in more than four years on Saturday, winning 24-19 in Sydney to avenge two consecutive narrow defeats, including a controversial World Cup exit, by the Wallabies.
Tries from Duncan Taylor, Finn Russell – who is set to be called up to the British and Irish Lions squad along with Allan Dell – and Hamish Watson were enough to see the Scots home with Russell adding the extras following Greig Tonks’ early penalty.

• Italy 20-18 South Africa
Italy claimed their first victory over South Africa on Saturday, beating the demoralised southern-hemisphere giants 20-18 in Florence.
A delirious home crowd gave their team, ranked 13th in the world, a standing ovation after the match as the visitors – ranked fourth – formed a lonely huddle in the middle of the field, reminiscent of their shock loss against Japan in last year’s World Cup.

• State had ‘minimal interest’ in claims against F1 chief executive
• They relate to sale of major stake in the motor racing business
• Ecclestone pays his way out of court
A New York appeals court has upheld the dismissal of a $650m (£410m) lawsuit against the Formula One chief executive, Bernie Ecclestone, saying he cannot be sued in the state’s courts over the sale of a major stake in the motor racing business.
In a 2012 suit, the investment firm Bluewaters Communications accused Ecclestone, now 84, of giving a $45m bribe to a German banker in 2006 to secure the deal for the private equity firm CVC Capital Partners.
