HOT OR NOT: You must question the wisdom of Dele Alli after his coronavirus joke … while Jon ‘Moss’ comments’ were satisfactory
- Referees get terrible abuse from players, such a shame when things go the other way
- Jemma Reekie continued to set new points for both the 1500m and the mile race
- The 50 of 22 batsman deliveries in England in South Africa were pretty incredible
- Dele Alli made a bad joke – most people, if they are honest, have done the same
It is again Hot or Not time if Sports emails Riath Al-Samarrai reveals what has made him warm and what has made him cold this week.
Although approving back-chat on the field is a slippery slope, there is something strange about this week’s episode between Moss and Dan Gosling of Bournemouth. Referees get horribly abused players, such a shame when it occasionally goes the other way.

After breaking the British indoor 800m record at the start of the month, Reekie drove new points in one race for both the 1500m and the mile. Yes, the Nike shoes help, but Laura Muir was hit in the same footwear in that 800m race – safe to say that Reekie achieved a major breakthrough.
Eventually lost the loss, but the 50 off 22 deliveries from the English batsman in South Africa were pretty incredible. Unfortunately, that was also the way England fell on their faces in a T20 chase where they only needed seven runs of seven balls at one point.
He made a bad taste joke. Most people have done the same thing at some point if they are honest. But you have to wonder about the depth of wisdom from everyone who thought it was a good idea to share it on social media.

Another week, another round of crises. They are now being assessed by UK Sport just five months after the Olympics and at a time when they have no director and the chairman has just stopped. The question is actually how it took UK Sport so long to notice all those flames.
Sleep continues. She is now three games in the season and only has one set to her name. On Wednesday, that meant a straight-sets defeat to the world No. 159 Oceane Dodin in Russia. After the highlights of 2019, her return after a knee problem is far from smooth.
