Weekend in pictures: Ibrahimovic, Scotland & Frodon the winners

Frank Monkhouse | 28 February 2017

Best pics from the weekend’s sport

There was barely time for punters to catch breath over the course of the weekend as we shot from one pulsating match to the next. And there were plenty of big priced upsets along the way, just to keep Coral punters smiling.

Ibrahimovic starred on Sunday as Man Utd won the League Cup, with the odd goal in five vs Southampton at Wembley. Scotland were again the surprise package in Saturday’s Six Nations matches, beating Wales at Murrayfield, while Frodon lived up to expectations in a cracker at Kempton.

Below you will find a selection of the best pictures from the weekend’s results, which tell the story better than we could…..
