Roger Federer had won the gold for men singles during the 2008 Olympics and silver for 2012.

Roger Federer had insisted that he will not retire, even after he had played in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

The 34-year-old Swiss will be celebrating his 35th birthday around the time of the event, but he believes that he has what it takes to make a haul of Olympic medals.

He will be playing in the singles and mixed doubles, but he has not made up his mind on men’s doubles.

“No plans to retire yet. I don’t have a definite date even though that would help to make things easier to plan,” Federer said.

Federer has not tasted Grand Slam glory since his last victory at Wimbledon in 2012, but claims that he is anticipating the forthcoming Australian Open event.

“The Australian Open is obviously a big goal for me. And after that it’s going to be a long, tough year.”

“So I’m happy I’m feeling fine physically and in good shape and of course, like I say so many times I hope I’m still on tour for a while.”

Doom, Riki, Faceless Void, Death Prophet and Lone Druid will be reworked in the latest patch.

Dota 2 had released patch notes for 6.86, and the contents appear to substantiate earlier claims that it would “change the history” of Dota 2.

As with other patches, heroes are the main focus of rework since it is already named as a “Balance of Power” update.

Doom, Riki, Faceless Void, Death Prophet and Lone Druid will be removed from Captain’s Mode due to their ability reworks. However, Earth Spirit, Oracle and Terrorblade has been added to Captain’s Mode.

A new Dota hero will be introduced – Zet the Arc Warden, able to use slow, evasion and doubles. And Zeus will get a new item called Arcana along with a chariot.

In addition, the patch comes with a new wasteland map configuration, aptly called the Desert Terrain, which opens up new maps like the Desert Colosseum. It is a nifty backdrop along with the Ultra Shadow Quality video option.

The patch also comes with optimizations to the Dota 2 Reborn client. This will feature new platforms for player tracking, a convenience for everyone from eSports analysts to new players.

Bristol blocks Borthwick from England coaching job

The resignation from Steve Borthwick was not accepted by Bristol.

The resignation from Steve Borthwick was not accepted by Bristol.

Bristol will “take all reasonable actions” after denying an agreement for Steve Borthwick to become England forwards coach.

The Rugby Football Union had released a statement earlier saying that former England captain Borthwick would join new head coach Eddie Jones’ team without prior notice.

Borthwick signed a long-term deal with Bristol after the World Cup, and previously worked under Jones in coaching the Japan international squad.

He handed in his resignation to the club on Tuesday, but Bristol asserted that they had not been asked for permission to speak to Borthwick and had refused to accept his resignation.

Bristol said they would take “all reasonable actions as necessary to protect the club’s position.”

Before Bristol had intervened, Borthwick was quoted in an RFU statement saying it was a “huge honour to be asked as these chances don’t come around often”.

Eddie Jones had praised Borthwick as a “young coach with great potential” and that his “analytical” approach was a great addition to the England coaching staff.
