Introduction: Digital journalism is rapidly maturing in the use of the resources that distinguish it from other types of journalism: Hypertextuality, multimedia and interactivity. Methods: Given that the study of the use of these resources is relatively recent, this article presents the results of an empirical quantitative study of the use of hypertextuality, multimedia and interactivity in digital sports journalism in Spain and France. The study is based on the analysis of the sports news sites L’Équipe and As. Results and conclusions: The mostly used type of hypertextual information is internal and contextual; the most predominant multimedia resource is photography; while interactivity occurs mostly in the comments section. The use of digital resources by digital sports journalism can be improved.
