Harry Kane’s future may be resolved, but the summer’s other great transfer saga rumbles on. The rumours linking Remco Evenepoel with a switch from Soudal-QuickStep to Ineos Grenadiers continue to persist, despite the Belgian’s own appeals for calm this week.

After winning the elite men’s time trial at the World Championships in Stirling on Friday afternoon, Evenepoel was again asked about those constant murmurs. “I hope it calms down, the Vuelta is a three-week race and if I have to hear the same shit for three weeks it's going to be a long Vuelta,” Evenepoel said.
