Mo Salah’s tears and agony a cruel end to his season of joy with Liverpool | Barney Ronay

What did Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos intend when grabbing the Egyptian’s arm? He might say he was reacting to Liverpool’s own concussive approach. Either way Salah was doneAnd fade to white.

Gareth Bale soars but hints he may be on his way out of Real Madrid | Sid Lowe

The Welshman was the match-winner off the bench but his two goals against Liverpool could prove to be a glorious farewellF or a moment there was silence and then there was a small smattering of applause. At the Liverpool end, they were stunned, and they were not alone. The goal that won the European Cup had to be watched twice and they still couldn’t believe it; even the replay on the giant screen didn’t entirely shake them out of it. For the second time, they were left wondering if that had really happened. The first time was surreal, the second sublime. Gareth Bale had been on the pitch for only two minutes when he took flight. High in the Kiev sky, he connected with a wonderful overhead kick. Related: Real Madrid win Champions League as brilliant Bale sinks Liverpool Continue reading...

Kyle Edmund ready for challenge of increased expectation at French Open

The British No 1 is unfazed by the pressure of his strong position inside the top-16 seedings bubble and welcomes the test of his dangerous first-round opponent Alex de MinaurKyle Edmund, simultaneously handling hay fever and raised expectations, rubs his eyes occasionally while he surveys the opportunities opening up for him at Roland Garros over the next fortnight in the most open major for several years.He is inside the protective top-16 bubble in the seedings for the first time and, in the continued absence of Andy Murray, hardly needs reminding that a nation expects – perhaps too much.

Serena Williams spells danger on eve of inspirational French Open return

Johanna Konta is in awe of the 23-times grand slam champion’s strength to come back after having a baby but is undecided on whether the American should be seeded at Roland GarrosSerena Williams, the grande dame of tennis, returns to her job at the highest level in Paris this coming week, as a 36-year-old mother with as much to prove as when she came from 5-3 down in the third set against Kim Clijsters en route to winning the first of her 23 majors, 19 years ago at Flushing Meadows.Among the American’s many admirers and rivals in the game Johanna Konta is in awe of her, for returning to the court after being away for most of the past 18 months, and her decision to defy convention. She knows, too, how dangerous Williams can be when cornered: as when Heather Watson had her on the ropes at Wimbledon in 2015 but could not land the knockout blow; or at Roland Garros a month earlier when, so sick she could barely walk to the service line, she won the deciding set to love against Timea Bacsinszky to reach the final. Williams, Konta understands, is a born fighter. Continue reading...
