SPORT IN PUBLIC: On the bus with vintage Spurs, not-so-vintage Torres and the greatest boxer ever

Welcome to our weekly round-up of sporting clips. Like Sir Alex Ferguson on a scouting mission, we’ve carefully handpicked these videos to ensure success. Our aim is to get you out of the car and going to sporting events on public transport. All you have to do is leave the car keys at home, fire up your internet enabled devise and kick back on the bus and train while these clips keep you entertained…


It’s hardly been a vintage week for football stories. Even the transfer window is proving something of a damp squib, unless the prospect of Christopher Samba fleeing the sinking ship at Blackburn quicker than the captain of the Costa Concordia, erm, floats your boat. Clearly the sight of last January’s big transfers – Fernando Torres and Andy Carroll – sinking faster than said cruise ship has put many managers off. This is pretty much the level of disdain we’re talking about…


It’s been such a slow footballing week that we were forced to search outside the beautiful game for our sporting entertainment (well, the feature is called SPORT In Public, after all). Boxing legend Muhammad Ali turned 70, so what better excuse to relive some of his greatest moments…


Perhaps Andy Murray can restore some national pride at the Australian Open. To be honest, we’re not massive tennis fans but we do always enjoy watching these crazy tennis shots…


Back in the world of football there is only one question on everyone’s lips. No, it’s not will Anton Ferdinand reprise Wayne Bridge’s handshake diss to John Terry when QPR meet Chelsea in the round of the FA Cup. It’s can Spurs really win the Premier League? (Excuse us a moment while we roll around on the floor urinating in our underpants)…. I mean we all know that Spurs love it when the year ends in 1, right? And as it’s now 2012, they might have to console themselves with a reminder of past glories rather than imminent future ones…


Still, judging by Arsenal’s latest capitulation at the hands of Swansea, at least Spurs are unlikely to be upstaged by their north London rivals…

Living green doesn’t have to mean growing dreadlocks and becoming an eco-warrior. At Global Cool we reckon a greener life is still a fun one. We’ve found four simple ways you can be greener without sacrificing the things you love. All our articles highlight one way (the one in bold below) to start being greener…

1. Be a winner, not a binner (aka recycling and reusing stuff)
2. Turn up the style, not the heat (aka using less energy at home)
3. Love the trend, not the spend (aka buying stuff that doesn’t harm the planet)
4. Do it in public (aka ditching the car and plane when you can)
