🤑😭🙂 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.

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.

Gareth Bale has been crocked, mocked for playing too much golf and labelled a 'parasite' by the Madrid press... yet his epic Real saga could end with more Champions League final heroics as Ancelotti considers letting him loose against Liverpool
🤑😭🙂 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'.
PETE JENSON: Karim Benzema was derided by Jose Mourinho as a 'pussycat' in his early days at Real Madrid, but the master marksman can make history in Paris if he helps Los Blancos roar to glory in Paris
🤑😭🙂 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.
