HOT OR NOT: Marcus Rashford is still fighting the good fight for kids and giving the Government a kicking, but it seems very odd that medical data was lost from a third laptop with a man as meticulous as Dave Brailsford around
- Marcus Rashford is still challenging the Government over free school meals
- Iga Swiatek won the French Open while Lewis Hamilton recorded his 91st F1 win
- It was a bad week for Dave Brailsford and British Gymnastics CEO Jane Allen
It’s Hot or Not time again as Sportsmail’s Riath Al-Samarrai reveals what’s been making him feel warm and what’s been leaving him cold this week.
Fighting the good fight for kids and giving the Government a kicking at the same time.
In a week where football attempted another clumsy bite out of its own arm, this guy continues with his utterly barmy idea of thinking about the welfare of others.
England’s Marcus Rashford has carried on challenging the government over free school meals
It takes some doing to find limelight in the courts of King Rafa Nadal, but Swiatek was the greater tale of this year’s French Open.
To win a Slam for the loss of 28 games is brilliant.
To do it as an unseeded 19-year-old on a university gap year is really quite special.
He has a mechanical advantage. We all know that, even without Sir Jackie Stewart saying so.
But to go level with Michael Schumacher on 91 Grand Prix wins marks him out as one of the finest British sportsmen of any era, irrespective of whether a few were a little too easy.
Lewis Hamtilon equalled Michael Schumacher’s F1 Grand Prix record of 91 wins this week
Whoever knew the keenest gymnast in the building was a 65-year-old administrator?
It would seem the British Gymnastics CEO is quite happy to contort and spin her way around questions of athlete welfare until her retirement in December.
To hear her kind words for a coach under investigation was to take a step closer to understanding their mess.
The more we learn, the more we wonder.
This week, as part of Richard Freeman’s medical tribunal, we found out the former British Cycling and Team Sky doctor lost medical data from a third laptop.
To think, Brailsford, that knighted mastermind of gold and yellow prizes, was always so careful on details. How very odd indeed.

An excellent chess scandal. Rausis, a Latvian grandmaster, was exiled in disgrace in 2019 amid accusations of using his phone in a toilet to cheat.
He resurfaced at a tournament last weekend under a new name but a rival recognised him.
Igors is back in the cold.
