HOT OR NOT: Young Charlie Woods standing side by side with his dad Tiger on the range is a powerful sight to see while the claim that football wants Millwall ‘to fail’ is pathetic
- Tiger Woods and son Charlie, 11, team up for the PNC Championship on Sunday
- Callum Smith looks calm and collected ahead of his fight with Canelo Alvarez
- There’s been a negative reaction to Russia’s doping ban dropping to two years
- How can the Rugby World Cup draw for 2023 be based on 2020 rankings?
It’s Hot or Not time again as Sportsmail’s DANIEL MATTHEWS reveals what’s been making him feel warm and what’s been leaving him cold this week.
From the pre-swing shuffle to the lean-back-and-admire, the resemblance was scary. On Sunday, Tiger Woods and son Charlie, 11, team up for the PNC Championship. It was a powerful sight to see them side by side on the range, given how Tiger’s father moulded his son’s career.

Amid the turmoil of 2020, there was something comforting in seeing that his quest to become Steve Smith 2.0 continues apace. The Australia batsman left his first ball of the Test series against India with an extraordinary flourish and then displayed more lightsabre leaves along with whirling arms and legs.
On Saturday, the youngest of Liverpool’s four fighting brothers takes on one of boxing’s greats. You would not know it. Throughout the build-up, Smith has been a picture of calm. He has not appeared overawed – instead, during their face-offs, he has looked over the head of his foe. Now to make those advantages count.

The booing, by some fans, of players taking a knee was bad enough. The claim the rest of football ‘wanted them to fail’ was pathetic. So how Millwall thought trying to censure Sky for their coverage was a sensible next step… when will someone at The Den realise this is not about them and their ‘no-one-likes-us’ badge of honour? It’s bigger than that.

‘Nonsensical’ and ‘devastating’ were two of the more printable reactions to the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s decision to cut Russia’s doping ban from four years to two. So we can expect Russian players at the 2022 World Cup, wearing red, carrying the country’s name. But not representing Russia. What is the point of this charade?
Rugby World Cup
This week’s draw for France 2023 took place nearly three years before the first whistle, based on rankings from January 2020. How can archaic administration like this still endure? The only crumb of comfort: the RWC board now think the draw should be done no earlier than a year out from the tournament. Better late than never, I suppose.
