Italian Honda rider Marco Simoncelli was killed when his bike collided into two other riders competing in the Malaysian Moto Grand Prix.

The 24-year-old was well known for his flamboyant personality and will be greatly missed by his racing colleagues and fans.

At the Gold Coast 600 on the weekend, Mark Winterbottom has driven Ford to victory.

It was an action filled race with many drivers cutting corners and forcing multiple collisions.

Winterbottom secured a thrilling win in the last few seconds of the race, overtaking Jamie Whincup near the finishing line.

The New Zealand All Blacks are World Cup Rugby Champions for only the second time in 24 years.

In a gripping match against France, which proved tougher than many expected, New Zealand won by just one point.

Finally in netball, the Australian Diamonds missed out on victory by one point in their game against the New Zealand Silver Ferns yesterday.

The Diamonds fought back from an 11 point deficit at half time to take the lead from the Ferns.

But victory was stolen in the last few seconds by New Zealand shooter, Maria Tutaia.
