FIFA World Cup 2018
BUSINESS -- The Donald Trump-Kim Jong-un summit has raised hopes of a relaxation of sanctions on North Korea, allowing imports of much-needed fuel from South Korean refiners and exports of its rich mineral deposits.
CYCLING -- The 2018 Tour de France starts in the Vendée region and ends three weeks later in Paris with the traditional circuits of the Champs Elysées. The race starts a week later than usual to avoid too much of an overlap with the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
GOLF -- At more than 7,400 yards, the rugged, windswept Championship Course at Carnoustie, Scotland has a reputation for being one of the toughest in the UK, with narrow fairways, sloping greens and ample bunkering.
SOCCER -- Reigning champions Manchester City kick off the new season away to Arsenal, while rivals Manchester Utd host Leicester City, Liverpool face West Ham United, and Tottenham travel to Newcastle United.
GOLF -- The links-style course in Southampton, New York is hosting the major for the fifth time, and will play as a par 70 at 7,445 yards – 450 yards more than the 2004 Open – thanks to 10 new back tees.
F1 -- The first French Grand Prix since 2008 takes place at the Circuit Paul Ricard at Le Castellet, Var, a track which last hosted Formula 1 in 1990, with subsequent races taking place at Magny-Cours.
