Sales in the sports division rose 16.3% to £611.8m during the period and gross profit for sports climbed 15.8% to £260.4m.

Dave Forsey, chief executive of Sports Direct International, said trading was in line with management’s expectations.
“Some stronger weeks were offset by England’s disappointing World Cup performance. Within Sports Retail we continue to focus on upgrading our store portfolio and integrating recent acquisitions, including Eybl and Sports Experts in Austria,” he added.
The group will report its next interim results on December 11.
