Champions League: Messi scores hat trick as Barcelona blanks PSV Eindhoven

If the World Cup had given the impression that Lionel Messi was slipping down soccer’s pecking order, the Argentine star made it clear he remains at the top of his game. Messi scored a record eighth Champions League hat trick on Tuesday in Barcelona’s 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven as Europe’s top club competition got underway. Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe, the teenage star widely viewed as the man capable of dethroning Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in a near future as the best player in the world, endured a frustrating night in a 3-2 loss with Paris Saint-Germain at Liverpool. The World

Umpire banned for Kyrgios pep-talk at US Open

Umpire Mohamed Lahyani will return to work at the Stockholm Open in October Umpire Mohamed Lahyani has been suspended from his next two scheduled tournaments for encouraging Nick Kyrgios on court during the US Open.

Kyrgios, 23, fought back to win the second-round tie in four sets. The ATP has banned Lahyani, 52, from October’s China Open and Shanghai Masters after an internal review. “Lahyani’s actions in the match were deemed to have compromised the

Tango in Paris

From my parents’ old house, high above the White Cliffs of Dover, you could look out across the English Channel on sunny days and see the outline of the French coast. I used to imagine that somewhere beyond the horizon there was a French version of me, a bon viveur enjoying better weather, better clothes, better friends: chic, debonair, nonchalant, hanging out in cafés and brasseries, quaffing aperitifs, maybe Champagne, living with elan and panache; living une vie en rose. This alternate life could be glimpsed on family motoring holidays in the Loire Valley or the Dordogne, or cycling through

Alouettes QB Johnny Manziel to replace struggling starter Pipkin

The quarterback carousel in Montreal has spun again, and Johnny Manziel is once again the next man up. The former Cleveland Brown took the majority of Montreal’s first-team snaps at practice on Monday and will take over from quarterback Antonio Pipkin when the Alouettes (3-9-0) visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday. Pipkin, 23, started the last four games for Montreal but threw four interceptions in a 32-14 loss to the visiting B.C. Lions last Friday. “I think Johnny deserves the opportunity to play this week based on last week,” Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman said after practice. Sherman also

POV podcast: Stephanie Labbe plays the long game

Stephanie Labbe approaches soccer like Bobby Fischer approached  chess. She’s thinking many, many moves ahead. So — when the  goal is unprecedented, like getting Canada atop the World Cup podium, Labbe takes an unprecedented approach. She joined a men’s team in the Premiere Development league so she could face an exceptional proving ground between the pipes. No one questioned her skill: she stoned the best they could throw at her. But the league played the gender card: men only. Labbe was ready for that. Plan B? Learn. Adjust. Move on. In the latest podcast, Steph and her old bud Anastasia Bucsis talk about Labbe’s next step,

‘It was unreal!’ Federer stuns Kyrgios with ‘special’ shot

Roger Federer smiled to himself after his incredible shot, while Nick Kyrgios could only gasp in disbelief
2018 US Open
Venue: Flushing Meadows, New York Dates: 27 August-9 September Coverage: Live radio coverage on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra; live text commentaries on the BBC Sport website

Roger Federer says a stretching forehand winner around the net post that left opponent Nick Kyrgios open-mouthed in disbelief ranks as one of the greatest shots of his career.

The 37-year-old Swiss somehow reached a drop-shot from Kyrgios to flick it past the incredulous Australian on his way to a three-set win in the US Open third round.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion was already in control, leading two sets to love, when he produced the shot on advantage point for Kyrgios at 3-3.

“I definitely think it was a special one, no doubt about it,” said the second seed, who won 6-4 6-1 7-5.

‘In practice you’d run into a fence’

Federer showed no signs of his advancing years to produce a spectacular moment which left almost everyone inside Arthur Ashe Stadium on their feet in amazement and caused a stir on social media.

Although Kyrgios went on to hold serve in the game, Federer broke four games later to help seal his place in the last 16 at Flushing Meadows.

“You don’t get an opportunity to hit around the net post very often,” Federer said.

“You can’t train for that.

“The net is out further and the court is more narrow, so for a shot like this to happen in a practice, you will be running into a fence and you will hit it into the net.”

“These shots can only really happen on a big court.”

Chasing down a drop shot, the Swiss hit the ball inches off the ground and curled it around the net post for a winner

It was almost unreal – Kyrgios

Kyrgios was already scrapping to stay in the match when Federer produced a moment of magic.

The 23-year-old Australian mouthed ‘Oh my god!” before trying to congratulate Federer, who allowed himself a sly smile, from across the net.

“It was almost unreal,” said Kyrgios, who is no stranger to trick shots of his own.

“Almost got to the point where I wanted him to start making shots like that, and I finally got it.

“If anyone else is doing those shots against me, I’m probably not too happy. But it’s Roger.”

‘Are you even from this planet?’ Social reaction to that shot…

Taryn Bray: MOTION TO NEVER LET ROGER FEDERER RETIRE!

Gerard Ye: How?! Goat or God Roger Federer?

Rob Koenig: That was NAUGHTY from Roger Federer!

Scarface: Out of this world Roger Federer…

Crazyfedfan: You are unreal Roger Federer.

Matt Kreisher: Roger Federer just got one of the greatest shots I’ve ever seen

OurnumberoneRF: Touch of Roger Federer, I mean GENIUS.

Paulina Estrada: OH MY GOD ROGER FEDERER ARE YOU EVEN FROM THIS PLANET?

Oliver Brown: Roger Federer with one of the shots of this or any other year. Just preposterous.

James Stevenson: A mere mortal doesn’t get that. Roger Federer is immortal. No doubt.
