The Daily Sport was a tabloid newspaper published in the United Kingdom by Daily Sport Ltd., which specialised in celebrity news and softcore pornographic stories and images. The daily paper was launched in 1991 by David Sullivan, following its former Sunday sister title, Sunday Sport (first published in 1986).[1] It ceased publication and entered administration on 1 April 2011.[2]

Following the purchase on 7 June by the telecom, travel and internet entrepreneur Grant Miller, the new online Daily Sport[3][4] was re-launched on 17 August 2011 with sports coverage plus classified advertising for the first time in its twenty-year history. There are not thought to be any plans for a re launch; however, Midweek Sport, Weekend Sport and Sunday Sport are still published by Sunday Sport (2011) Ltd.[3][5]
