The best of the last week (or so). Fifa, Barca, failure, and a long hour.

FOOTBALL

FIFA
Blatter: Has he actually resigned, or is this all another ploy? And was he really all that bad? Richard Williams of the Guardian has a valiant go at making a case for Sepp.

Meanwhile, meet Andrew Jennings – the man who really kicked all this off. And what can Fifa learn from Miss World and Eurovision?

TENNIS

GOLF
A failure special. Tiger Woods shoots 85, and everyone wants to know how and why. Rory McIlroy seems out of sorts. Blame golf for being hard. And even Jack Nicklaus thinks he underachieved in his (18 majors) career. Tough sport.

CYCLING
‘Torture’. How Sir Bradley Wiggins broke cycling’s hour record.

RACING
American Pharoah (sic) is a triple crown winner, but he’s no Secretariat.

CRICKET

BASEBALL
Why is the MLB draft so low-key?

BASKETBALL
The NBA finals aren’t kind to underdogs. And they are as much about the sneaker wars as they are about basketball.

LASTLY
The most cursed sports cities in America.

Happy reading, and see you next Tuesday.
