Sprint cyclist Nicholas Paul left yesterday for Argyle, Switzerland, for the 2017 track training camp which starts tomorrow. It will be the second stint at the camp hosted by the sport’s go verning body, UCI.
Less than a minute after replacing Ivan Rakitic during a strangely discordant el clásico, Andrés Iniesta had Barcelona humming sweeter harmonies again. His first act was to float to the centre, collect from Gerard Piqué and exchange a wall-pass with Lionel Messi – bam, bam, bam – which started a 31-pass move. His next was to set up Neymar for a chance he smashed over. Later he steered a glorious eye of the needle ball that Messi, with the match at his feet, screwed wide.
