🤑😭🙂 KATHRYN BATTE - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL CORRESPONDENT: A tumultuous season for Paris Saint-Germain Women took another twist on Tuesday as manager Didier Olle-Nicolle was suspended following allegations of 'inappropriate behaviour'. In a statement, the club said that players were exposed to events that, 'if proven', would be 'incompatible' with PSG's 'sporting and human values'.  Meetings with players were held after a complaint was made public and Olle-Nicolle was subsequently suspended, pending further investigation. The news comes at the worst possible time, with PSG facing a must-win match against Lyon on Sunday. They are five points behind the league leaders with two games left to play.

🤑😭🙂 Marcelo is not taking the idea of leaving Real Madrid very well, with new footage showing the soon-to-be out of contract defender suggesting he deserves better treatment having been a 'f***ing example' at the Bernabeu. The Brazilian left back has been a mainstay in Madrid's side since 2007 but finds himself out of contract next month, with Saturday's Champions League final in Paris potentially his final game for the club. While the 34-year-old is keen to stay at the Bernabeu, Real Madrid appear like they are ready to move in a new - and younger - direction, to the bemusement of Marcelo. 

🤑😭🙂 Abramovich and the Blues have been under sanctions from the UK Government since early March, a couple of weeks after Vladimir Putin ordered Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

🤑😭🙂 River Plate ran out 8-1 winners against Alianza Lima with Alvarez proving why he was one of the most sought after young strikers on the planet.

🤑😭🙂 NEW Man City and Liverpool were battling for the title, with City needing to beat Aston Villa to secure the championship and the Reds hoping to defeat Wolves and wanting Pep Guardiola's side to slip up.

Victorious Roma boss Jose Mourinho films jubilant celebrations from his players after securing their first European trophy in 60 years... as he shows off gift from his daughter's jewellery line following triumph

🤑😭🙂 A delighted Jose Mourinho took in the wild celebrations from overjoyed Roma players and fans after sealing Europa Conference League glory. The Portuguese became only the second manager to win five major European titles after the Serie A side beat Feyenoord 1-0 in Tirana on Wednesday night. Scenes of jubilation broke out in the Albanian and Italian capital cities after Nicolo Zaniolo's goal earned Roma a first major European title in more than 60 years. The post includes a video of Roma players banging the roof and sides of the bus while blasting out a chant for goalkeeping coach Nuno Santos, who goes over to join in with the players' celebrations. Another video shows the Portuguese unwrapping a gift from his daughter. The present from Matilde Mourinho to her father is from her jewellery line, having the date and opponent on a night Jose will never forget inscribed on it. The 59-year-old then proceeds to put the bracelet on before giving a delighted thumbs up and shake of the fist to the camera.

🤑😭🙂 Midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo got the only goal of the game in Tirana on Wednesday night against Feyenoord to give Roma their first European trophy since winning the Fairs Cup back in 1961.

🤑😭🙂 The Italian side beat Feyenoord 1-0 on Wednesday night to secure the first ever Europa Conference League trophy thanks to a goal from Nicolo Zaniolo.

Gianluca Mancini appears to FIGHT his Roma team-mates in the aftermath of their inaugural Europa Conference League win as fans react to bizarre footage of 'crazy' defender - before Felix Afena-Gyan brushes off incident as 'nothing serious' 

🤑😭🙂 The Giallorossi defeated Feyenoord 1-0 in the inaugural final of the Europa Conference League in Tirana, Albania, thanks to Nicolo Zaniolo's well-taken first half effort. Jose Mourinho's win with Roma over the Dutch outfit claimed the club's first ever Uefa trophy, and saw the Portuguese become the first manager to complete the full Uefa set.

🤑😭🙂 An emotional Jose Mourinho hailed his 'historic' achievement of becoming only the second manager to win five major European titles after Roma clinched the Europa Conference League.

🤑😭🙂 Smalling was the man-of-the-match as he secured a clean-sheet for the Italians, while Abraham - though largely stifled in Tirana against Feyenoord - was the club's top scorer in the competition.

Fans revel in Tammy Abraham's cheeky wink to the Roma bench during their Europa Conference League final victory as supporters suggest Jose Mourinho has taught him the 'dark arts' 

🤑😭🙂 The Giallorossi were looking to see out a 1-0 win against an increasingly adventurous Feyenoord side and the England striker bought his defenders some much-needed breathing space with some intelligent forward play when he was brought down. With the cameras focused in on Roma's top scorer this season, Abraham looked to the bench while clutching his shin before winking towards his bench.

🤑😭🙂 Roma defender Chris Smalling chose a good time to put in a fine performance on Wednesday, as he guided his side to victory in the Europa Conference League final.

🤑😭🙂 DANIEL MATTHEWS: Jose Mourinho is the first manager to win all three of UEFA's European competitions. His record in major continental finals remains perfect, too.

Social media accuses NFL superstar Tom Brady of FAKING glitzy drone footage of an insane golf fluke - but the seven-time SuperBowl winner insists it was a 'once-in-a-lifetime' shot 

🤑😭🙂 Tom Brady sure knows how to stop the internet in its tracks. Whether that be by predictably announcing his u-turn on retirement to come back to the NFL or, in this instance, posting a golf shot people believe is simply too good to be true.  The Buccaneers quarterback and seven-time Super Bowl champion published a video of a stunning golf shot on social media on Wednesday which immediately saw sceptics among his 2.7million followers labelling the video as 'fake' and 'clickbait'.  Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen quickly poured doubt on it, labelling it as 'bulls***', after Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes appeared to endorse Brady's heroics.

🤑😭🙂 PETE JENSON: Kylian Mbappe has rejected Real Madrid for the third time, but the difference now is that Vinicius Junior has finally arrived at the top table of world football. He can fill void left by Mbappe's no show. Mbappe would have likely taken the Brazilian's left-sided berth but, now, the position is Vinicius' for as long as he wants it.

🤑😭🙂 EXCLUSIVE: He left Liverpool for Real Madrid aged just 24. The Reds beat AC Milan the following season in a classic but Michael Owen does not think Saturday will be close.

🤑😭🙂 Roll up, roll up... welcome to the last night of the Gareth Bale show. One of football's most curious episodes, featuring the Welsh wizard and the world's most prestigious football club, will draw to an end with this Saturday's Champions League final. It could easily be the case that Bale's Real Madrid swansong is a whole load of nothing. Carlo Ancelotti could simply leave him out of his matchday squad and Bale won't even travel to Paris. Yet, as Ancelotti ponders his team selection this week, there will be a big part of him tempted to pick Bale given the moments of magic he has produced on this stage in the past. They include the extra time goal in 2014 that put Real ahead for the first time in their final with city rivals Atletico and the astonishing overhead kick he produced against Liverpool in the 2018 showpiece. They were the good times for Bale at the Bernabeu. More recently it's been all injuries and insults, with the fans questioning his loyalty, quite a lot of golf and the Spanish media branding him a 'parasite'.

🤑😭🙂 Mane, who has been linked with a move away to the likes of Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, set off alarm bells at Anfield as he vowed to announce his future following the game.

🤑😭🙂 PETE JENSON: When Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in the Champions League final four years ago, Sergio Ramos's feud with Mohamed Salah lasted longer than the celebrations.

🤑😭🙂 PETE JENSON: He could win his fifth Champions League with Real Madrid on Saturday and if he does, a first Ballon d'Or will surely follow. But Karim Benzema could easily have ended up at Manchester United in 2009 instead of Spain. Back when Real Madrid rarely lost out on a transfer target, they battled with Sir Alex Ferguson for a 21-year-old who France Football magazine had dubbed 'Zinaldo' because he had Zinedine Zidane's technique and was as prolific as Brazil striker Ronaldo. Zidane helped Madrid get their man, advising president Florentino Perez to visit him in the Bron neighbourhood of Lyon where he had grown up.

🤑😭🙂 The forward, who is fit for Saturday's Champions League final, has been in talks with Liverpool for more than 12 months about extending the terms of his current deal, which expires next year.

🤑😭🙂 Liverpool are confident key midfielders Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara will win their races to be involved in the Champions League final after they passed crucial tests.

🤑😭🙂 Former heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder has not stepped foot on the canvas since his devastating 11th-round knockout defeat to Tyson Fury during their trilogy bout last year. However, the Bronze Bomber has said his 'journey's not over' and that he 'can't stop now' as 'the business of boxing needs' him to be successful.

🤑😭🙂 This marks Raducanu's second consecutive second round exit from a Grand Slam as she struggles to replicate the heroics that won her a stunning victory at the US Open in 2021.

🤑😭🙂 EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW BY PAUL NEWMAN: Eoin Morgan, fit and relaxed at the start of what could be his final summer in charge of the England white-ball teams he revolutionised, has no doubts about the impact his great friend will make on English cricket. 'It's unbelievably exciting,' says Morgan of the appointment of Brendon McCullum as England Test coach. 'In many ways I'm jealous of the Test players because, having played both with him and under him, I know what a great man-manager Baz is. 'The best head coaches have this ability to lighten things up and reiterate what direction you're going in, what your purpose is.

🤑😭🙂 EXCLUSIVE BY SAMI MOKBEL: Arsenal have offered Eddie Nketiah their final offer of a new contract with striker now ready to stay at the Emirates Stadium. It is worth roughly £100,000-a-week.

🤑😭🙂 The Australian boxing superstar, 28, confirmed the Filipino legend will be ringside to cheer him on against Devin 'The Dream' Haney at Marvel Stadium in Melbourne on June 5.

🤑😭🙂 EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW BY DANIEL MATTHEWS: Few know the tricks and tells of Daniel Levy better than Tottenham's former executive director Daniel Eales who spent five seasons in north London.

🤑😭🙂 After dominating European football in the 1970s and 1980s, English clubs can finally enjoy a new era of supremacy as the Premier League hammers home its financial advantage over continental rivals.

🤑😭🙂 TOM COLLOMOSSE: Aston Villa's victory over Bayern Munich in the European Cup final in Rotterdam on this day, 1982 is immortalised on a banner in the North Stand at Villa Park. 'Shaw, Williams prepared to adventure down the left, there's a good ball played in for Tony Morley… Oh, it must be!... And it is! Peter Withe!' - Brian Moore's commentary provided the soundtrack to the moment that would define these players' lives but there was a richness and depth to this 40-year-old story that went far beyond those unforgettable words.

🤑😭🙂 An Olympic athlete has warned that gender recognition reform could have a 'devastating' impact on women's sport in Scotland and prompt female competitors to quit 'in their droves.'

🤑😭🙂 The Premier League striker got down on one knee for long-time girlfriend Lucia Loi (couple pictured right) yesterday, less than a week after United ended their season in defeat to Crystal Palace. The pair, both aged 24, have been dating since the age of 15 when they were pupils at Ashton on Mersey school in Greater Manchester. Rashford had been planning the proposal for weeks and popped the question to Lucia at a lavish villa after they shared a romantic meal at celebrity seafood restaurant Catch LA. A source told The Sun: 'They went out in LA for a romantic night together on Tuesday and he proposed. It was extremely romantic.' Rashford shared news of the engagement on Instagram, posting an image of the pair embracing as they stood atop a bed of white roses in front of a heart-shaped archway (left)

🤑😭🙂 MIKE DICKSON IN PARIS: When the end came here to this extraordinary first phase of her top line career it did so in the most deflating fashion, a deciding set running away from her.

🤑😭🙂 With the demotion of Burnley, Watford and Norwich formalised on the Premier League's final day on Sunday, attention will quickly turn to reshaping their squads ahead of next season. Despite the financial boost of parachute payments for the relegated trio, it is likely to be a busy summer of ins and outs, with the new second-tier sides likely hoping to cut several high earners from the wage bill and raise funds for a promotion push. Clarets defender James Tarkowski (centre), Hornets forward Emmanuel Dennis (left) and Norwich star Max Aarons (right) are among the biggest names linked with moves to other Premier League sides in this summer's transfer window. Tarkowski could spark a transfer tug of war between Everton and Fulham, Dennis is interesting West Ham and Manchester United icon Rio Ferdinand urged the Red Devils to sign Aarons - and they may not be the only stars on the move. So, Sportsmail looks at the stars who could get poached by the big boys this summer.

🤑😭🙂 The former Manchester City defender, 36, is keen to replace Sean Dyche and return to the North West, where his wife Carla’s family are from. Kompany has also attracted interest from Monchengladbach.

🤑😭🙂 Many were keen to quickly jet off to start their relaxation time on holiday and Joao Cancelo (left) could not look happier aboard a private jet to homeland Portugal on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka (right) was in the US to watch Boston Celtics take on Miami Heat in the NBA on Tuesday evening. Elsewhere, Ben Chilwell (inset) posted a video of himself doing some keepy-ups on a beach, as the Chelsea left back enjoyed the beautiful surroundings.

🤑😭🙂 One of the worst seasons in Bath's 157-year history took another dramatic turn on Wednesday when chairman Edward Griffiths left the club after less than six months in the role.

🤑😭🙂 Erik ten Hag has requested a comprehensive profile of his Manchester United squad before meeting them personally, including where the players jet off to for their summer break. The Dutchman built a growing reputation in Ajax for a meticulous style of management and did not need a second invitation to stamp down his authority at Old Trafford. Beyond propelling the Red Devils further up the Premier League table next season, the 52-year-old coach is expected to instill a winning culture at the football club, following a decade of relative turmoil since the Sir Alex Ferguson era.

🤑😭🙂 The 81-year-old, who joined the Red Devils under legendary manager Sir Matt Busby in 1968, received the League Managers Association's Service to Football award.

Klopp is aiming to outmanoeuvre their Real counterparts with the forward-thinking technology, the brainchild of Dr Niklas Hausler and his business partner Patrick Hantschke. Liverpool engaged the company neuro11 - of which Hausler and Hantschke are co-founders - to help players get 'in the zone' when they play. Pictures of the Reds in training show full backs Trent Alexander-Arnold (second right) and Kostas Tsimikas (left) sporting the gear.
