REAL MADRID 6-3 GIRONA - PETE JENSON: Anyone who had 2018 in the sweepstake for the year when Cristiano Ronaldo would finally go to seed should probably tear up their ticket.

He now has 22 goals in La Liga – one more than Luis Suarez and three behind Lionel Messi. This end-to-end goal fest was perfect ground for him to show he’s still got as Madrid flexed their muscles before the international break.

Ritchie on target and Gayle misses a late penalty as Newcastle v Royal Antwerp ends all square... after 135 minutes

Volkov is a true to life Drago but Werdum KO at UFC London was a fight scene too violent for Hollywood
Fearsome heavyweight Alexander Volkov towered over Fabricio Werdum. All 6ft 7in of Russian belligerence hauled from his victim after landing a series of nightmarish shots. He appears to have been created by a Russian laboratory (though they would deny it). The man from Moscow may be a true to life Ivan Drago character, but this was a fight scene too violent for Hollywood. His freakish physique isn't much good horizontally however, with the Brazilian toppling his former training partner early on before using gravity, and his uncompromising top game to rain down punches in the first round.

Boxing, prison or death? Shot, stabbed and kidnapped... now Whyte is on the verge of fighting for the heavyweight world title after finally escaping a childhood of poverty
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW BY OLIVER HOLT: Underneath the railway arches, around the corner from Coldharbour Lane in Brixton, a couple of mechanics stare out at the pouring rain from a garage that promises 'crash repairs'. One or two jalopies come and go. A bashed-up wreck with flat tyres is parked nearby. It looks like a lost cause. Next door, at the end of a small alley, is Miguel's. A sign near the entrance proclaims it to be 'London's friendliest gym' but Dillian Whyte has not come here to be amiable. 'I don't like getting up early on Monday morning to get smashed in the mouth,' he says, 'but that's how it goes: you can't swim without getting wet.'
As he exited the court, LeBron James brought a young fan to tears. The Cavaliers' superstar made the boy's night by tossing him his sweat-soaked arm sleeve on the way to the locker room.

MICHAEL WALKER - A SHOT IN TIME: Rampaging Arsenal striker Ted Drake once scored seven goals in a match at Aston Villa. It was the season after he had scored 42 in the league, and both of those facts explain why it took Drake a mere 108 appearances to score 100 goals for the club. It is still a club record. Thierry Henry, by comparison, needed 181 games, Ian Wright 143. Drake’s goal tally at Villa Park also remains a top-flight record. This was some player. Drake was not just fast and prolific, he was, as this photograph from 1938 at Brentford confirms, indomitable. That combination of qualities that brought Southampton-born Drake two league titles as a player, an FA Cup winner’s medal and five England caps.
