Pakistan hopes for another medal in commonwealth games 2014 as Pakistan's Muhammad Waseem qualify for the boxing quarterfinals of the 52-kg fly category.

In pre quarterfinals round, Muhammad Waseem beat Malaysia's Jaya Raman. 29 points were awarded by all 3 judges to Pakistani boxer.

 

Vincenzo Nibali became the first Italian to win the tour de France since the late Marco Pantani, dominating his rivals on all terrains as his main rivals crashed out of a superb three-week race.

Nibali began the day with a near eight-minute lead and as the 137.5-km procession from Evry Nibali and his team mates drank champagne while the Peloton rode towards Paris at a snail's pace. A jubilant France hailed its first double podium finish in 30 years as veteran jean-Christophe Peraud and youngster Thibaut pinot took second and third respectively. Peraud's podium finish had looked in doubt when he crashed heavily on the Parisian cobblestones but he remounted and rode his way back into the Peloton to ensure his second place. Nibali finished safely as the sprinters contested the embers of the three-week tour around the champs Elysees, emulating the 1998 feat of Pantani. Germany's Marcel Kittel produced a burst of speed to claim the final stage, his fourth stage win of the tour and a repeat of his victory on the iconic Parisian landmark last year. Nibali beat Peraud by 7 minutes 37 seconds and pinot by 8 minutes 15 seconds to become the sixth man to win all three grand tours after Belgian eddy Merckx, Frenchmen Jacques Anquetil and Bernard Hinault, Italian Felice Gimondi and Spaniard Alberto Contador.
