He scored in the 14th minute of his first touchdown in the match. With an opponent from Jonathan David, the 35-year-old opened his feet perfectly to place the ball in the opposite direction.

Fabio Quartararo, Toel
Floundering in spite of himself. Or rather to his defender body. First-placed in his favorite Jerez circuit, the 22-year-old from Nice looked on his way to a third successive success in the Andalusian circuit. The captain while mastering the race twelve laps from the end, Quartararo managed to give himself with the power of his wrist by over a second ahead of his lone stalker, the Australian Miller. Then all of a sudden, the Frenchman lost track. Direct, his anxiety seemed to be mechanical. Except that it was not so. Two years ago, a Yamaha contestant experienced betrayal in his right arm and in pain due to cabin syndrome. “Once I was ahead again, I was no longer strong, I got stuck after the race, which ended in unknown number 13. I fought for six more laps with pain, but that was impossible, I had no more strength. It was dangerous for me to ride through This is the half of the race, but I didn’t want to stop because I knew a point or two could be important to the championship, so I gave it my all. ” As a result, he gave up his chair as captain of the World Championship. Hope he doesn’t have to go through the operating table too …
Paris Saint-Germain women fail at the doors of the Champions League final
A terrible disappointment for the ladies of Paris Saint-Germain, who bowed to the gates of the Champions League final against FC Barcelona. In the first leg (1-1), the second round turned in favor of the Catalans (2-1), a defeat synonymous with the semi-final.

And four. By losing at home to rival Stade Français Paris, Ciel-et-Blancs conceded their fourth straight loss in Top 14. A black streak should be added to by elimination in the Champions Cup quarter-finals against Bordeaux-Bègles. “There is a big mental aspect and we have to find the resources to show a beautiful face.
