Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi will remain with Alfa Romeo as the Italian brand announced the pair would be retained for next year’s Formula One season.

Ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in Imola, the team confirmed they have tied down Finnish veteran Raikkonen, who recently surpassed Rubens Barrichello as the Formula One driver to start the most races ever, and his Italian team-mate Giovinazzi.

Raikkonen, the 2007 F1 world champion, said: ‘Alfa Romeo Racing is more than a team to me, it is like a second family.

‘So many of the faces that were around me when I made my Formula One debut in 2001 are still here and the unique atmosphere of this team is what gives me that extra motivation to keep going in what will be my 19th season in the sport, next year.

‘I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t believe in the team’s project and in what we feel we can achieve together.’

Alfa Romeo announced on Thursday that it was extending its Formula One stay into next season after announcing a new title partnership with Sauber.

Giovinazzi added: ‘I am happy this relationship can continue for one more year. The team has put a lot of faith in me and I have done my best to repay this confidence with hard work and commitment.

‘We have achieved some good results and I feel I have done my part to make the team progress, but the road ahead is still long and there is much more we want to achieve together.

‘There will be a lot of continuity between this season and the next one, so everything we work on between now and the end of the year will already count for next, and we are ready to give it all we have.’

Jose Mourinho splashes out £500 on a leg of ham ‘as a reward for Sergio Reguilon after beating City’

jose mourinho splashes out 500 on a leg of ham as a reward for sergio reguilon after beating city

Jose Mourinho served up a feast for his Tottenham stars after they went top of the Premier League table by forking out £500 for a leg of ham.

Spurs put Manchester City to the sword on Saturday and underlined their title credentials after a 2-0 win, and Mourinho posted a picture of himself and Sergio Reguilon next to the giant joint of meat, suggesting the Iberico Ham was a reward for the left-back’s performance. 

‘A promise is a promise,’ he wrote alongside the photo on his Instagram account. ‘It cost me £500 but I keep my promises,’ he added as he tagged Reguilon’s account.

Reports in Spain claimed it was a prize for the Spaniard after keeping City winger Riyad Mahrez at bay throughout the game, while Sport Witness believe it was because Reguilon had won a bet that Spurs would win the game. 

With Raheem Sterling not fit enough to start the match, City’s hopes fell on Algerian international Mahrez, but he failed to inspire Pep Guardiola’s men and was hooked for the English winger with 20 minutes to play. 

Spurs midfielder Erik Lamela posted a video of the ham joint to his own Instagram followers, showing Reguilon carving up the meat – which was hoisted up on a huge wooden platter.

The north Londoners finished a gameweek top after nine games for the first time since 1985 thanks to goals from Son Heung-Min and Giovani Lo Celso.

Mourinho has been an avid user of social media this season, delighting fans with some hilarious insights behind the scenes, but he hasn’t always used it in a jovial manner. 

After Spurs lost 1-0 to Royal Antwerp, he posted a picture of himself sitting on the coach and wrote: ‘Bad performances deserve bad results. Hope everyone in this bus is as upset as I am. Tomorrow 11am training.’

He often takes the opportunity to reflect on games and also joked with his players after a victory against Burnley to show how they were all glued to their phones. 

Mourinho’s reward for Reguilon will bring back memories of Claudio Ranieri buying pizza for his Leicester City side in 2015-16 after guaranteeing them a meal out if they kept a clean sheet.

Uploading the clip on his Instagram story to his 3.8 million followers, Tyson could be heard cheering on his wife as Paris relentlessly punched away.

Along with Tyson, Paris was put through her paces by the Gypsy King’s strength and conditioning coach Kristian Blacklock.

Fury then uploaded a clip of the trio following their workout, where he said: “Another session done.

“Another day smashed. Another hour smashed. Well done Paris, well done Kristian, fantastic work.”

Paris and Tyson worked out together regularly during the first lockdown earlier this year, where the mother-of-five kept up with her husband’s gruelling 700 ab reps.

Tyson later claimed that Paris could outwork his boxing rivals as he lauded her fitness during their sessions.

He said: “She is fitter than me, outdoing me now, I have created a monster.”

Before adding: “You’re fit, you’re fit as a fiddle. Honestly, you’d outwork a lot of boxers, she would outwork a lot of boxers.

“She’s fit as a fiddle, you got fit Paris I tell you that! In six-seven weeks you got amazingly fit.”

Fury – who still has no opponent announced for his next fight – showered Paris with gifts last weekend after celebrating 12 years of marriage.

The 32-year-old treated his other half to Thornton’s chocolates and some flowers, alongside a pair of £890 J’Adior Slingback Pumps and some Christian Dior Dway Slides, which retail for £550.
