Just a month after collapsing on the football pitch following a cardiac arrest, a smiling Fabrice Muamba left the hospital this week.  He puts his miraculous recovery down to his faith in God, and it is hoped the young footballer will be able to return to the game he loves.  Football is often in the news for all the wrong reasons and it’s refreshing to see some positive news about the game for a change.

Gloucester Rugby’s head coach Bryan Redpath stood down this week.  His resignation comes after a series of poor results and the former head coach says “I’ve offered my resignation with a heavy heart”.

Chelsea didn’t gain much credit for their performance against Barcelona this week but it’s the win that matters and win they did.  Chelsea were the victors winning 1-0; Drogba scored the goal.

An invitational golf tournament in Bahrain got underway a week ahead of the Grand Prix with barely a whimper but when it came to the higher-profile Grand Prix, protests were in full force.   Despite calls – some of them rather belated – for the race to be called off, it went ahead.  Sebastian Vettel won for Red Bull with Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean coming second and third.
