Formula One's new U.S.-based owner Liberty Media on Monday completed its takeover of the sport's commercial rights and with it ended one of the longest, most colourful and controversial reigns in global sport.

If the object is moving at speeds equal to or greater than sound, it outruns those pressure waves.

  • Liverpool seek League Cup home comfort in Saints semi-final

    Liverpool's formidable home record was meant to provide the platform for a tilt at three trophies this season -– but Saturday's surprise 3-2 Premier League defeat by Swansea spoiled that idea.
