Snaps that tell the story
We were treated to a stunning weekend of sport, and between the Premier League, Cheltenham Festival, Six Nations, boxing, and plenty more along the way, punters barely had time to draw breath.
Highlight of the week in the Premier League saw Man City and Liverpool scratch out an entertaining draw on Sunday, while Sizing John was a dramatic winner of the Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival. We have picked out our best images, that go some way to capturing the emotion of it all…..
Sizing John won the highlight of the Cheltenham Festival on Friday, the Gold Cup. Beating Minella Rocco into second, it was a fantastic performance, which earned backers an SP 7/1.
Everyone had Gennady Golovkin picked to KO Daniel Jacobs in New York on Saturday evening, but the super-star was taken to points for only the fourth time in his career, before winning over the judges.
Man City and Liverpool played out an enthralling 1-1 draw at the Etihad on Sunday, with Aguero scoring 18-minutes after Milner had given The Reds a lead from the spot.
Ireland put an end to England’s unbeaten run in the Six Nations by recording a famous St Patrick’s Day weekend win over The Red Rose. It was a gutsy performance, leading to a convincing 13-9 win.
Roger Federer claimed his fifth Indian Wells title on Sunday with a win over Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5. It has been a stunning start to the year for Australian Open champion Fed-Ex, and there looks much more in the tank.
