We tell the story of the weekend’s results
Plenty for sports fans to talk about over the weekend, including Portugal’s impressive win in the Confederations Cup, a result inspired by Ronaldo, of course. England also battled their way into the semi-finals of the U21 European Championships, where they’ll face Germany in a mouth-watering tie.
In the world of sport, Feliciano Lopez went from an unseeded player to Queen’s Club champion, upsetting the odds to topple Marin Cilic in the final, while the size of the task in front of the British and Irish Lions was evident. The Tin Man was another who caused a scene, taking the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.
We’ve picked out our favourite snaps from the weekend, which tells the story of what went on…..
