Sick Messi misses PSG away match against AS Monaco

2:25 pmLionel Messi can’t participate in Paris Saint-Germain’s away game against AS Monaco on Sunday. The 34-year-old Argentinian has had the flu for two days and is not fit in time, the French top club reported on Saturday. Ángel Di María, Messi’s compatriot, is also unable to play football due to a hamstring injury.

Defender Sergio Ramos is available again after the coming international period, PSG expects. The league-leader in Ligue 1 has almost won the league title. With ten games to go, the lead over Olympique Marseille and OGC Nice is 15 points.

Odermatt closes world cup with fifth victory in giant slalom

1.16 pm: Skier Marco Odermatt has finished the World Cup season in giant slalom in style. The Swiss achieved his fifth victory in eight races in that part in Courchevel in France.

In the three World Cup races that Odermatt did not win in giant slalom, he finished second twice and third once. As a result, the skier was already certain of the overall victory in the World Cup in the giant slalom and he could not miss the first place in the general world cup. He also won gold in the giant slalom at the Beijing Games last month.

Lucas Braathen from Norway was second on Saturday and Loïc Meillard, compatriot of Odermatt, finished third.

Van Gool withdraws from the World Indoor Championships for 60 meters

At the end of February, the 23-year-old Tilburger won the 60 meters in a time of 6.61 seconds at the Dutch indoor championships in Apeldoorn. It was the fourth year in a row that Van Gool won the national title at that distance.

Van Gool won bronze in the 60 meters at the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow in 2019.

VfL Bochum hopes to quickly identify a drinking cup thrower

11.18 am: VfL Bochum hopes to quickly find out which supporter threw a drinking cup on the field on Friday in the league game against Borussia Mönchengladbach. A linesman was hit. The referee stopped the game.

“The focus is now on identifying the perpetrator. The video footage is still under investigation. VfL hopes for a quick clarification and will actively support the police in its investigation,” said VfL Bochum. The club says that the perpetrator will receive a stadium ban and will also have to pay the costs of any fine for the club. Bochum expects to receive a penalty from the German Football Association.

“We ask anyone who can provide relevant information for identification to contact the Bochum police station,” said the Bundesligaclub board.

Bochum trailed 2-0 when the game was stopped. The linesman has been taken to hospital for a check-up. His damage seems to be minor.

It was the eighth game in Bundesliga history to be permanently abandoned and the third due to objects being thrown from the stands.

Austria has now been placed in group B instead of Belarus and will play against Olympic champions Finland, the United States, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Latvia, Norway and Great Britain.

The top four countries from both groups qualify for the quarter-finals.

The Ice Hockey World Cup will be held in Helsinki and Tampere from May 13 to 29.

Bendsneyder fifth in qualification in Indonesia

8.50 am: Motor racer Bo Bendsneyder will start on Sunday in the Indonesian Grand Prix in the Moto2 class from fifth place. Britain’s Jake Dixon was fastest in qualifying on Saturday. Bendsneyder also had to tolerate the Spaniard Augusto Fernandez, the Briton Sam Lowes and Somkiat Chantra from Thailand.

The match in Kuta is the second of the season. At the opening race at the Losail circuit in Qatar, Bendsneyder set the seventeenth time in qualifying two weeks ago. He finished nineteenth in the race.

The 16-year-old motorcycle racer Zonta van den Goorbergh, who will make his debut in Moto2 this season, will start the race on Sunday from 25th place.

LA Lakers basketball players achieve important win in NBA

08.48 am: The basketball players of the Los Angeles Lakers have won a precious victory in the NBA. The record champion won 128-123 after extra time against the Toronto Raptors. With this, LA Lakers maintain a lead in the standings of the Western Conference over the New Orleans Pelicans, who were too strong for San Antonio Spurs 124-91. The Lakers are ninth, which would be enough to qualify for the playoffs at the end of the regular season.

LeBron James was the most accurate player on the Lakers side with 36 points. Russell Westbrook was also a big part of the win. He equalized in the final second, requiring extra time.

At the top of the Western Conference standings, the Phoenix Suns basketball players took their 57th win of the season. That happened against the Chicago Bulls: 129-102.

Defending champion Badosa misses Indian Wells final

08:30 am: Paula Badosa failed to reach the final of the Indian Wells masters tournament. The Spanish title defender had to recognize her superior in Maria Sakkari from Greece in the semi-final. It was 6-2 4-6 6-1. Martina Navratilova remains the last tennis player to win the Indian Wells tournament twice in a row, in 1990 and 1991.

Sakkari will face Iga Swiatek in the final. The Polish won 7-6 (6) 6-4 against two-time Grand Slam champion Simona Halep from Romania. Due to her strong performance, Swiatek rises to third position in the world ranking anyway and even to second after winning the final. “It is really beyond my expectations,” said Swiatek after her victory.

Blackpool striker Daniels comes out as first British professional player in 32 years | NOW

Published

on

Blackpool’s Jake Daniels revealed on Monday that he is gay. The 17-year-old attacker is only the first British professional footballer since Justin Fashanu in 1990 to openly admit his homosexuality.

“This season has been fantastic for me,” Daniels begins his story on the site from his club. “I made my debut in the first team, scored thirty goals for the youth team and signed my first professional contract.”

“But off the pitch, I’ve been hiding who I really am. All my life I’ve known I’m gay. I think it’s time to come out publicly.”

There is still a taboo against homosexuality in professional football, as a result of which hardly any footballers at the highest or second highest level are openly gay. In October last year, Australian professional football player Joshua Cavallo came out and in the MLS, the highest level in the United States, Minnesota United player Collin Martin announced a few years ago that he was gay. Robbie Rogers announced that he was into men in 2013 and played for LA Galaxy for years later.

In the summer of last year, an anonymous Eredivisie player told in a podcast of the NOs not wanting to come out because he’s afraid it could hurt his career. John de Bever, now mainly known as a singer, made it known during his professional (indoor) football career that he was gay.

Fashanu became the first British professional footballer to come out in 1990. He took his own life in 1998.

‘Everyone reacted positively’

Daniels emphasizes that he has a lot of support from people within the club, family and friends. “And I have already told the news to my teammates. Everyone reacted positively.”

“I’m tired of lying all my life and always doing my best to fit into the familiar picture. Hopefully I can be a role model in this way too.”

Blackpool said in a statement that it was “incredibly proud” of Daniels. “It is vital for us as a club that we create an environment in which everyone can be themselves. Let football take the lead to combat discrimination and other prejudices in this area.”
