OVER THE WEEKEND: THE 6 TALKING POINTS

You could not keep track of all the happenings in the world of sport of the weekend? Not to worry, TouchlineUI brings you 6 Talking points (between last Friday and Monday) in its weekly bulletin.

The Green Jacket

A professional comeback for Tiger Woods seemed inconsequential as Jordan Spieth swept all the attention away with an historic win at the Masters. Breaking quite a number of records in the process, the talking point, however, is the fact that Spieth (at the age of 21) becomes the 2nd youngest ever to win a Masters. This feat also moves him to the 2nd position, after Rory McIlroy on the Golf World Rankings, making it the first time ever that the top 2 would not be more than 25 years of age.

It was all about the M 

Yes, it was the MotoGp, yes it was Marc and yes it was Marquez! Marc Marquez won the Grand Prix of the Americas, in a pulsating race that had all on the edge.

Manchester is all Red. No Blue spot!

The Manchester derby came but no one could have predicted the outcome. For the first time in a while, the Red Devils dominated, disgraced and demeaned their blue counterparts. Is this a whiff of things to come?

Lo! He makes us search for the Unbroken Records

It was a record-breaking weekend all right! The usual culprit, Cristiano Ronaldo, scores his 300th goal for Real Madrid to become the third player to do so in the club’s history, alongside Angelo Di Stefano (307) and Raul (323). And to think that he did so in just 288 matches, Ronalstic!!

Hamilton and Roseberg Again!

In what seemed like a perfect race for Mercedes, another row between the Mercedes pair appeared to take all attention. These 2 should just enjoy the wins!

Spahic’s Contract Terminated 

On a rather sour note, Leverkusen terminated its contract with defender Emir Spahic over a brawl to club security after a loss to Bayern Munich on penalties in the DFB Pokal.
