Sporting Round Up

This weekend saw some great sports action take place and The Sporting Week looks back at the best bits.

Corinthians defeated Chelsea 1-0 in the Club World Cup to become the first non European side to win the trophy in six years.

To make things worse, Gary Cahill was sent off for the European Champions League holders in a miserable day for the English club.

Back in England, Manchester United kept the gap at the top at six points with a comfortable win at Sunderland. Manchester City had earlier won 3-1 against Newcastle and Norwich City became the only team to currently match Barcelona as they went ten games unbeaten in the league with a 2-1 victory at home to Wigan Athletic.

In Rugby Union’s Heineken Cup, Saracens defeated Munster 19-13, Toulon destroyed Sale 62-0 in a game that saw eight different try scores for the French side and Leicester narrowly defeated Treviso 14-13.

There were also wins for Northampton, Harelquins and Exeter on Saturday, in a reasonably good weekend for English sides.

The Cricket continued in the fourth test in India and England edged closer to a series victory, their first in 27 years on day four of the test. England only require a draw and an unbeaten 66 from Jonathan Trott has helped them on their way.

Amir Khan got back to winning ways on Saturday night as he defeated Carlos Molina in a stoppage at the end of the tenth round. After two defeats it was important for Khan to win and he never let Molina in with a chance and deservedly came away with victory.

Sergio Garcia shot an impressive 61 to take the Johor Open in Malaysia, the lowest in Asian Tour history. It was a great couple of days for the World number 20 who had never been to Malaysia before, but finished on -18.

The World Short Course Swimming Championships continued this weekend, with some great performances for British swimmers, with Fran Halsall and Hannah Miley grabbing medals.

It has been a good few days for Britain who have now claimed an impressive haul of medals after what had been described as a disappointing Olympic cycle in london 2012.

Tonight also sees the greatest sporting event of the Year, Sports Personalty take to the screens and you can catch a full review on Monday.
