Snack Summary – Ben Stokes not guilty of affray and GB Athletes win big in Berlin

Ben Stokes has been found not guilty of affray after the events of last September. The Durham player claimed he was defending a gay couple who were being verbally abused on a night out after a test match against the West Indies. He has already been reintroduced into the squad for the final test against India with England coach, Trevor Bayliss, announcing that Stokes would be assessed before they made a final decision on his inclusion.

Great Britain won 74 medals at the European championships in Berlin including 26 gold, 26 silver and 22 bronze. Among the winners was 22 year old Dina Asher-Smith who picked up three gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay. The brit beat both her own British records in the 100m and 200m and is the first woman to win three European sprint titles at one championships since 1990.

Tottenham fans hoping to start the season at White Hart Lane have been left disappointed after the club announced they would be delaying the reopening of the stadium due to, ‘issues with critical safety systems’. Spurs, who won their first game of the Premier League last weekend at Newcastle, will play their next three home games at Wembley. It has not yet been decided where the game against the 2017/18 champions, Manchester City, will be played on the 28th October.

After the reintroduction and impact Danny Cipriani had during the third test in South Africa, there was a general hope that his party boy days were over. However, the new Gloucester signing was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday morning and pleaded guilty to common assault and resisting arrest. He was ordered to pay £250 compensation to a woman police officer as well as an additional £2,000 fine.
