Bradley Wiggins was in yellow as the Tour de France was crossing the Alpes. Andy Murray was playing the match of his life in the Wimbledon final. Round the bend, Lewis Hamilton was zorcing round Silverstone in the British Grand Prix, and he's always in with a chance, innit? London Olympics starting in a few days and the Three Lions of England lie fourth in the latest FIFA rankings. Murray's bid to become the first British Wimbledon men's singles champion since 1936 hit a major hitch in Roger Federer, who wasn't about to bow to hometown sentimentalism after dropping a first set to Murray 4-6. Murray's second set fight to a 7-5 tie-break loss would have given some false hope for a thriller, but that was quickly dashed with a fast-paced 6-3, 6-4 smack-down from the Swiss to end the hopes of a nation. Hamilton was looking slippery smooth in Friday's wet practice sessions, but faded to eight on the grid to start Sunday's race. His final place will be no different, as Aussi Mark Webber ran his Red Bull past Fernando Alonso's Ferrari to take a win.
Hamilton wouldn't stress that poor finish though, and hit the town in the early hours of Tuesday morning with J-Cole and Brit bad gurrl rapper Phreeda Sharp. The 27-year-old F1 driver was spotted at London’s celeb hotspot Funky Buddha, and was all up in Phreeda's grill in some sketchy snapshots that were all over the Brit press. So that leaves Wiggins eh? Well he's showing amazing form and his Team Sky teammates are pulling hard for him to stay in yellow after he destroyed the competition in the 41.5km Stage 9 Arc et Senans - Besançon individual time trial, putting another 1.43 on main rival Cadel Evans. Wiggins can win this Tour, and with another long time trial ahead, those mutton chop sideburns look like they will be getting a lotta press if the redhead stays in yellow.
See if Hamilton wanted this bad cop to pull him over http://youtu.be/a1CYh0Z4U2I
