Sport chats to 18-year old Danny Kent – Moto3 rider and great British hope for the future, ahead of this weekend's races at Silverstone

Are you looking forward to racing at Silverstone, Danny?
“Yeah I'm really looking forward to it – I really enjoy racing in front of the home crowd. It gives you an extra buzz when you're driving round a track and you're seeing all the English flags and pictures of you out on the side of the track, so I'm really looking forward to it.”

LG 55EM960V 55” OLED TV

Like your cassette Walkman, your VCR and your Palm Pilot, your flatscreen TV is now painfully out of date. Sorry about that.

Don’t fret, though – the future looks pretty damn good. The latest in image projection is OLED, which stands for organic light-emitting diode. It’s tech that’s been used in phones and tablets for a while, but this is the first TV to make the leap.

It’s ‘mate v mate’ as rugby league’s 2012 International Origin Series gets under way on Saturday, with England taking on the Exiles at Langtree Park, St Helens.

The concept of the national team pitting themselves against the best Australian, New Zealand and South Sea Island players in the Stobart Super League was born last year with a one-off game. The Exiles won that one 16-12, thanks to a last-gasp try from Wigan’s George Carmon.

The West Indies top order has been dismally weak throughout the recent Test series against England, so for the three one-day internationals they have beefed up their squad by adding the biggest muscles in cricket.

Former captain Chris Gayle (pictured), who hasn’t played for the Windies for 14 months after falling out with the cricket board, has built a few bridges and arrives fresh for action after a destructive display in the Indian Premier League.
