Horse racing was Queen Elizabeth II's big sporting love. She first rode a horse at the age of 3 and would inherit the breeding and racing stock of her father, King George VI, when she acceded to the throne in 1952. She became one of the biggest faces of British and global horse racing and had approaching 2,000 winners as a racehorse owner. Her jockeys always wore purple, gold and scarlet racing silks. The queen was present at some of the most famous occasions in British sporting history like when England won the men's soccer World Cup in 1966.

The Boston Celtics suspended coach Ime Udoka for the upcoming season after a months-long investigation by an external law firm that found multiple violations of team policies. That's according to team owner Wyc Grousbeck. Grousbeck would not comment on specifics. A person with knowledge of the matter, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the details were not made public, told The Associated Press on Thursday that it involved an inappropriate relationship with a woman in the organization. Grousbeck said no one else from the organization is facing punishment. He would not say whether the suspension was unpaid but confirmed that it comes with a “significant financial penalty.”
