This week Luis Suarez thinks he could make a killing in journalism, Serena Williams reveals her frustrating development as a youngster and could Britain one day bid for the Winter Olympics? It's the week's best quotes...

"I won't be watching Oprah on Thursday. I'll watch Jeremy Kyle in the morning though - that's a far better programme."
Should Sir Bradley Wiggins ever split from Team Sky, we now know which TV programme will help them patch things up.

"I've been playing tennis far too long to hit myself in the face."
Serena Williams' forehand has come on a tad since she was a beginner.

"I have not been in Munich. I was in Frankfurt on a pleasure steamer."
Nothing Pep Guardiola's agent Josep Maria Orobitg ever says again should be taken at face value.

"Snowboard, tobogganing, we've got the Winter Olympics here."
Kevin Blackwell puts forward Bury as an outside bet for the 2022 Games.

"It's only a thumb - I have got another one"
Wales forward Ryan Jones' memory of the film 300 could do with refreshing.

"I was like, 'Oh crap, it's Roger'."
Bernard Tomic neatly sums up what goes through 99% of tennis players' minds when they find themselves on court with the man from Switzerland.

"The name of Suarez sells papers."
But perhaps not enough to bring out his own publication, although then again....we'd probably still read it.
