A Week Of Sport #29 – 25 July

Welcome to a week of sport, a weekly post that let’s our in-house sports fanatics rant and rave about last week’s sporting headlines.

Join in the conversation and let us know about your favourite sporting event of the week.

Chris Froome claims Tour de France hat-trick

Tour de France 2016's winner Great Britain's Christopher Froome celebrates his overall leader yellow jersey on the podium on the Champs-Elysees avenue in front of the Arc de Triomphe (Arch of Triumph) in Paris, at the end of the 113 km twenty-first and last stage of the 103rd edition of the Tour de France cycling race on July 24, 2016 between Chantilly and Paris.

After a gruelling Tour which saw Froome crash twice, the 2013 and 2015 champion became the first ever Briton to claim three Tour de France titles. With the Olympics next in Froome’s sight, few would bet against him bringing home a gold medal from Rio to add to his impressive trophy cabinet.

Konta claims first WTA title

Johanna Konta of Great Britain poses with the trophy after defeating Venus Williams of the United States in the final during day seven of the Bank of the West Classic at the Stanford University Taube Family Tennis Stadium on July 24, 2016 in Stanford, California

Johanna Konta became the first British lady since Sue Barker in 1977 to claim the Stanford Open in California, one of the most prestigious on the WTA Tour outside of the Grand Slams. Konta triumphed against seven-time Grand Slam winner, Venus Williams, winning 7–5, 5–7, 6–2 and will now move to the lofty height of world number 14.

Hamilton hammers Rosberg in Hungary

Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team's British driver Lewis Hamilton crosses the finish line to win the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring circuit in Mogyorod near Budapest, Hungary, on July 24, 2016

Once Lewis Hamilton had overtaken Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg at the start of the race, the three-time Formula 1 champion controlled the race and never looked back. Despite trailing by up to 43 points at one point in the season, Hamilton now leads team mate Rosberg by six points in the race for F1 glory.

Allardyce is the new man for English football

Newly appointed England manager Sam Allardyce poses after a press conference at St. George's Park on July 25, 2016 in Burton-upon-Trent, England

With Roy Hodgson’s departure as England manager after the national team’s dismal display in France, Sam Allardyce was announced as his successor. Experienced, straight talking and a meticulous organiser of his teams, Allardyce will certainly offer something different as England manager.
