By Ben Blanchard BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese President Xi Jinping gave a warm welcome to Prince William on Monday as he began the first visit to the mainland by a member of the British royal family in almost three decades, setting aside rancour with London over Hong Kong. William's trip to China is the first since Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip, paid a visit in 1986, and follows some sparring between London and Beijing over pro-democracy demonstrations last year in the former British colony of Hong Kong. Meeting in Beijing's cavernous Great Hall of the People, William handed Xi an invitation from the queen for a state visit to Britain.

A November start to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar would cause severe disruption to Japan's domestic football schedule, the head of the J-League told AFP on Monday. A FIFA taskforce has recommended the controversial tournament take place in November and December to avoid the scorching summer heat in the Gulf state, a proposal which could be ratified by the body's executive committee next month. "If the World Cup does start in November, it would come right at the peak of the Japanese season," J-League chairman Mitsuru Murai said in an interview. Asian Football Confederation (AFC) president Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, who heads the taskforce, has circled November and December because stifling heat between May and September leave few alternative options.

By Ian Chadband LONDON (Reuters) – John Terry embellished his status to Chelsea fans as “captain, leader, legend” by scoring the goal that set his side on the way to a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the Capital One League Cup final at a rain-sodden Wembley on Sunday. The former England captain was once again a quite inspirational presence for the club that adores him as he defended like a lion and scored a 45th-minute goal to ease Chelsea nerves before Kyle Walker's deflected own goal from a Diego Costa shot settled the final in the 56th minute. It meant an ecstatic Terry lifting the League Cup 10 years since he first did so under Jose Mourinho’s watch — and just as in the last reign of ‘The Special One’, he will be hopeful that it signals an era of supremacy for the west London club. It meant an awful lot to us (to win the League Cup) in 2004-05 in Jose's first year here," Terry told Sky Sports.

Celtic manager Ronny Deila says he is taking nothing for granted despite his side opening a six point gap over rivals Aberdeen at the top of the table following a 4-0 thrashing of the Dons. Jason Denayer, Leigh Griffiths, Gary Mackay-Steven and Stefan Johansen all scored on Sunday as Celtic put a huge dent in Aberdeen's title hopes to move a step closer to claiming their fourth Scottish Premiership title in a row. The Glasgow giants could now extend their lead to nine points if they can claim victory against St Johnstone in their rearranged fixture on Wednesday night.
