It's Hot or Not time again as Sportsmail's Riath Al-Samarrai reveals what's been making him feel warm and what's been leaving him cold this week. 

HOT

Daniel Levy

What an interesting and infuriating character. He’s a builder, he’s a miser, he’s a pitbull and he’s a poodle (around Jose Mourinho). Truly, a riddle. 

But then he hands over all that cash to bring Gareth Bale back. And maybe, if only for a while, we can all be a little happy about that.

Dominic Thiem

We should resist framing the US Open champion in the context of tennis’s new wave — at 27, he’s older than Bjorn Borg was when he retired. But if Andy Murray taught us anything then it’s the of persistence. 

Thiem winning a Slam after losing three finals was simply delightful.
