A MERE 14 weeks after winning in Lisbon, Real Madrid welcome FC Basel on Wednesday morning (EST) to kick off the UEFA Champions League.

FIRST, the Colombian women’s cycling team uniform had us doing a double take with its revealing design. The men’s leaves nothing to the imagination, either.

UPDATE: WEIGHTS AND BETTING: RACING Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter has ­described this year’s Melbourne Cup as “the Cup of ­opportunity’’.

Arsenal are facing a crisis ahead of their Champions League opener, with Arsene Wenger only able to call on three fully fit first-team defenders.

WELCOME to the NFL, where a shocking number of players make our baddest footy stars look like boy scouts.
