Chelsea to seal Jose Mourinho return with Radamel Falcao

Chelsea have all but sealed a sensational double agreement to bring Jose Mourinho and Radamel Falcao to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to reports in Germany.

In an article carried by the Daily Mirror, German newspaper Bild reports that Jose Mourinho is set to be appointed Chelsea manager for next season, with Atletico Madrid frontman Radamel Falcao a €60m "special welcome gift".

Falcao has been a long-term target for the Blues, and they were linked with a move for the Colombian international in January.

And with interim Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez set to leave the club at the end of the season, there has been speculation Mourinho could return to the Stamford Bridge dugout.

Bild broke the news of Mario Gotze's transfer to Bayern Munich earlier this week, and have now claimed the summer's second big transfer will involve the Blues.

Mourinho has been widely expected to leave the Bernabeu this summer, and Real Madrid's shock 4-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night will not boost his chances of sticking around much longer.

He'd be a popular appointment among Chelsea fans after a hugely successful three year spell at Stamford Bridge between 2004 and 2007.

And the report now claims he's "almost certain" to re-join the Blues this summer, with Falcao to follow in a €60m (£51.7m) deal.

The Atletico Madrid man would join Fernando Torres and Demba Ba, strengthening Chelsea's hopes of mounting a renewed Premier League title challenge next season.

Chris Gayle Scores Fastest Century in Cricket History

West Indies' flamboyant batsman opener Chris Gayle slammed the fastest century in cricket history, reaching the triple digit mark in just 30 balls during the Royal Challengers Bangalore Vs Pune Warriors IPL T20 match on Tuesday, then went on to make the highest score ever seen in Twenty20, ending unbeaten with 175 off 66 balls.

The West Indian battered the Pune Warriors bowling attack with a century that included just seven dot balls, four singles, eight fours and 11 sixes, during the process, to send the crowd at Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore in delirium. By the end of his innings he had amassed 17 sixes and 13 fours as Royal Challengers Bangalore recorded a total of 263 for five, the highest innings total in a Twenty20 match.

Gayle has been having a hit-and-miss IPL in 2013 thus far, with low scores coupled with an 85 off 50 balls and a 92 off 58. But his assault on the Pune bowling attack on Tuesday was in a different category all together. This was Gayle's second ton in his IPL career.

Pakistan's Shahid Afridi holds the record of fastest century in ODI (37 balls) while, Gayle's fellow man Viv Richards is credited for scoring fastest ton (56 balls) in Test history. South African Richard Richard Levi holds the record for fastest international T20 hundred. Levi had slammed 45-ball century against New Zealand in 2011 at Hamilton. Gayle had, earlier, also scored record 50-ball 100 in T20I before Richard Levi surpassed his feat. Gayle also beat the previous 34-ball ton Twenty20 league record set by Australia's Andrew Symonds.

By the end of the innings, it was hard not to feel sympathy for the bowlers. "Life is all about taking the right decision," tweeted the India captain MS Dhoni, "seeing Gayle bat today I think I took the right decision of being a wicket keeper. Though, the milestone came in an IPL clash, and not in any international tie, Gayle's fireworks will be remembered by cricket buffs for long.

Kimi Raikkonen gets airborne in Motocross Riding

Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen is someone who enjoys every second of life on and off the track in F1. This is probably the reason behind, why he has got a huge fan base following him & admire him a lot.

Kimi Raikkonen enjoyed the break between the recent Malaysian Grand Prix and next one in  China this weekend with a spot of motocross MX Riding.

Founded alongside his rallying team during his two-year Formula 1 sabbatical, Raikkonen's IceOne squad also includes a motocross arm.

So the Iceman pulled on his MX kits last week during the three-week break between Malaysia and China and headed to Belgium, according to the Finnish broadcaster MTV3.

There, the 2007 F1 world champion participated in the gravel practice session, with images depicting him in full airborne tilt.

Motocross riding would ordinarily be deemed too dangerous for Formula 1 teams to allow, but Lotus team boss Eric Boullier admitted last week that, "One of our drivers is famous for doing pretty much what he wants".

Kimi Raikkonen to join Vettel for Red Bull in 2014

Kimi Raikkonen is on Infiniti Red Bull Racing's radar if fuming Mark Webber quits Formula One at the end of Formula One 2013 season. Mark Webber was livid after team-mate Sebastian Vettel ignored team orders to hold station in second place and not to overtake the Aussie to win the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Vettel subsequently escaped sanction for his insubordination, a situation which appears to have backed up Webber's post-race claim that the triple world champion enjoys 'protection' at Red Bull. Mrak Webber, whose contract with the team expires at the end of this season, refused to be drawn on his future after the Sepang showdown.

But the energy drink owned team owner Dietrich Mateschitz has revealed they are interested in Lotus' Kimi Raikkonen. He admitted Raikkonen would be a strong candidate to partner Vettel next season. The billionaire Austrian said: "Kimi is cool and fast and always a candidate."

Meanwhile, Webber has been linked with a switch to racing sportcars with Porsche. And Mateschitz admits he does not know what is in store for the 36-year-old. Mateschitz said: "Whether he retires, only he will choose, but Mark is definitely a candidate for 2014."
