December 31, 2017 -- Looking back at a selection of the international sporting events and sports personalities in the public eye in 2017: -

Tennis masters Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal rolled back the years to secure two Grand Slams apiece, while Serena Williams won a record 23rd Slam.

Golfer Sergio Garcia tasted major glory for the first time at the U.S Masters, and Jordan Spieth picked up his third major aged only 23.

Anthony Joshua enthralled 90,000 fans at Wembley with his knockout victory over Wladimir Klitschko, Lewis Hamilton joined the greats with his fourth F1 World Championship title, Chris Froome also claimed a fourth title at the Tour de France, and track giant Usain Bolt retired after one last medal at the World Championships.

The New England Patriots and Houston Astros won the Super Bowl and MLB World Series respectively, Real Madrid continued their domination of European football, and Team New Zealand conquered the waves in the America’s Cup.

The southern hemisphere’s domination of rugby continued as New Zealand’s women won the Rugby World Cup and Australia’s male and female teams both won their Rugby League World Cups.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
