oRory McIlroy showed his true colours at the British Open last weekend - and what a performance it was. The Irish golfer has been through the mill, on and off the course, in recent times and many had doubted his form. But Rory's critics got their answer at Hoylake. In doing so he secured the Open title, the oldest and the greatest of all the majors. His status as a legend is assured.
JThe reaction of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the downing of MH17 by Russian-backed goons was despicable. He stood back for days, failing to put the pressure on as armed militia obstructed investigators. It was obscene. Meanwhile his defence ministry suggested this week that the flight was shot down by a Ukrainian warplane. This bully must be brought to heel.
