cycling: Flesh-colored uniforms worn by a Colombian women's cycling team were "unacceptable," according to the International Cycling Union president.

The uniform, with a flesh-colored section between stomach and thighs, was worn by IDRD-Bogota Humana-San Mateo-Solgar riders at the Tour of Tuscany in Italy over the weekend. UCI President Brian Cookson wrote on his Twitter account that "it is unacceptable by any standard of decency."

It was unclear if the six-member team was intended to be kitted in similar uniforms next week while representing Colombia at the road world championships in Ponferrada, Spain. Pictures of the team shared on social media prompted Cookson's response. "To the many who have raised the issue of a certain women's team kit, we are on the case," the British official wrote.

Woods delay on new coach

GOLF: Tiger Woods is "in no hurry" to hire a new swing coach - as he has yet to swing a club during his latest injury lay-off.

The former world number one's last PGA Tour action came on August 3, when he withdrew after eight holes of his final round at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational having aggravated a back problem.

Since then his focus has solely been on strength work, meaning the search for Seán Foley's replacement - following their split three weeks ago - can wait.

"Am I looking for a new coach? As of right now, no, I'm not," said Woods.
