Expresso National and International Sports News Update at 3:30 pm on 23rd June 2022

You are listening to the Expresso Sports Update. Here is the latest news from the world of Indian and International Sports brought to you by The Indian Express.
“We begin with some football news,

Bayern Munich on Wednesday completed the signing of Senegal forward Sadio Mane from Liverpool on a three-year contact.

Bayern, who won a record-extending 10th straight league title last season, have reportedly agreed on a transfer worth about 40 million euros which was around $42.10 million, including add-ons, for the 30-year-old, who had a year left on his Liverpool contract.

Bayern president Herbert Hainer said, “Sadio Mane is a global star, he underscores the attractiveness of Bayern and the entire Bundesliga.”

The 30-year-old leaves Anfield after 269 appearances, having scored 120 goals in all competitions, and helped the club to the Champions League title in 2018-19 and the Premier League crown a season later.


“Meanwhile,

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia will step down from her role after the close season transfer window, the Premier League club said on Wednesday as the major overhaul at Stamford Bridge continues following the takeover led by Todd Boehly.

The club also said that new co-owner Boehly would replace outgoing chairman Bruce Buck as chairman of the board and take over as interim sporting director until the club names a permanent replacement,

Granovskaia’s departure follows that of chairman Bruce Buck, who will move to a senior adviser role after June 30.

A statement from Boehly read, “We thank Marina for her many years of excellent service to the Club and wish her all the best in her future ventures.”””
“On his way to Sau Paulo, Neymar’s private jet had was forced to make an emergency landing in the northern Brazilian city of Boa Vista due to technical problems. Everyone inside, including the Brazil and PSG forward escaped unharmed.

The footballer’s agency released a statement that read: “Due to a small problem in the windshield wiper of the plane of the NR Sports plane, in which the athlete Neymar Jr, his sister Rafaella Santos and Bruna Biancardi were traveling, the pilot decided, as a measure of precaution, to make an early landing in Boa Vista, so that the problem could be resolved. We would like to say that all the passengers are fine and waiting to continue the voyage.””
“In some golf news,

Following the footsteps of Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau (De-Shaum-bo) and Phil Mickelson, four-times major winner Brooks Koepka, a former world number one, became the latest big name to join the lucrative LIV Series.

The US-based PGA Tour has been the toughest, most prestigious and most lucrative golf circuit in the world, with most upcoming players aspiring to play on that tour. Together with the DP World Tour, formerly called the European Tour, it has dominated the golfing scene for decades.

Now, a Saudi-funded venture with immensely deep pockets has threatened the status quo, tempting the best players in the world with lucrative contracts and guaranteed prize money to play in their LIV Golf events.


“Meanwhile,

In a move to counter the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series, the PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan announced a sweeping overhaul of the circuit on Wednesday.

The sweeping reforms include a return to a calendar year season starting in 2024, and the creation of three international events at the end of the season. In addition, eight designated tour events will see prize money boosted significantly with purses averaging at around $20 million.

The moves are the PGA Tour’s most significant response yet to the rise of LIV Golf, which launched earlier this month and has signed eight of the world’s top 50 players

Monahan said, “We welcome good, healthy competition. The LIV Saudi Golf League is not that.”””
“The International Hockey Federation has joined a raft of governing bodies reviewing their policy on the involvement of transgender athletes in women’s sport following last weekend’s ruling by swimming’s top body FINA.

On Sunday, FINA voted to ban anyone who has been through male puberty from elite women’s competitions and to create a working group to establish an “open” category for transgender swimmers in some events as part of its new policy.

A spokesperson from the International Hockey Federation told Reuters, “We are conducting a review of our transgender policy and this is a current work in progress in consultation with the International Olympic Committee.”””
“Lastly,

Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, who had started a sports representation agency last month, has now started a media company in partnership with Basketball player LeBron James.

Osaka, 24, has started a media company called Hana Kuma in partnership with SpringHill, a fast-growing entertainment, marketing and products company co-founded by James. Osaka said in a brief Zoom interview that her ambitions for Hana Kuma, which stands for “flower bear” in Japanese, include scripted and unscripted television series, documentaries, anime and branded content, which is entertainment programming that has embedded or integrated advertising.

While she may not be setting the Tennis world on fire on-court, but her ambitions off the court certainly have caught the eye of millions of people out there.
