Derek McGrath says All-Ireland final as far away as ever for Waterford in the aftermath of crushing defeat

Derek McGrath said he was devastated after Waterford bowed out of the All-Ireland hurling series despite putting Kilkenny to the sword over two games in the semi-final.

Full of praise for his players, Kilkenny and the game as a sporting event, McGrath says he was unwilling to committ "in the cold, hard analysis" after the game what his side were lacking in order to secure an All-Ireland final.

"An accumulation of three years of thought and work that the lads put into it," he says in relation to his devastation.

Six suffer burns and injuries after attack on Swiss train

Six people have been hurt after a man set a train carriage on fire in Switzerland and stabbed several passengers.

The alleged attacker, who is a Swiss citizen, was also injured when the train was set alight as it travelled in the far east of the country along the border with Liechtenstein.

Swiss police say the possibility of terrorism seems "very, very far-fetched" - however, they are not excluding the possibility it was a crime of passion.

WATCH: Gary Lineker stays true to his promise as he presents Match of the Day in his pants

On Saturday night, Gary Lineker proved that he was a man of his word as he took to the Match of the Day studios in nothing but his underwear.

Last season, clearly excited by the form his team were showing, the former Leicester and Bacelona player stated that  if the Foxes managed to win the league, that he would present the show in his pants. 

With the whole summer to prepare for his forfeit, Lineker appeared on screens in millions of homes wearing a pair of Leicester branded boxers (what else) as he presented the first Match of the Day of the 2016/17 Premier League season.
