1:D – Wales won the grand slam in 2019 and took the title in 2021. England’s last slam was in 2016; Scotland was in 1990 before Italy – who have never won the tournament – joined the Five Nations., 2:C – Pavon’s win at the Farmers Insurance Open made him the first French golfer to win on the tour since Arnaud Massy in 1907 . ‘I still can’t believe it. It’s big for our country,” the 31-year-old said afterwards. 3:B – Campbell saw his Lions side lose a 24-7 halftime lead as they lost 34-31 to the San Francisco 49ers, who advanced to the Superbowl. “It will be twice as difficult to get to this point again next year,” Campbell added. ‘That is the reality’., 4:A – “The coach’s departure is completely unacceptable, and we will discuss with him why this happened,” the Saudi FA president said after Mancini walked through the tunnel before Hwang Hee- chan converted the winning spot -kick., 5:C – All four men have won a world title driving for the Scuderia, but only Schumacher (2000-04) and Räikkönen (2007) won with Ferrari., 6:B – PSG and Ajax continued in a dramatic Group C final; PSG earned a late draw against Bayern, while Ajax fought back to beat Roma on a night when all four teams could have qualified. As for Real Madrid, they crashed out of Group D with one point from six games., 7:C – The tourists’ eight-run win was their first in Australia since a 10-wicket victory in Perth in February 1997 – and was also the Windies’ first-ever win in a men’s day-night test match., 8:C – The Winter Youth Olympics took place in Gangwon Province this week – but this photo is from the FIS World Cup which took place in the Swiss Alps., 9 😀 – If they win their replay with Coventry, the Owls – currently 23rd in the Championship – will next host Maidstone. There are no longer third, fourth or fifth level teams in the competition., 10:A – Azarenka, who like Sabalenka was born in Minsk, won the title in 2012 and 2013. Barty won her home event once (2022) , Osaka twice (2019 and 2021), while seven-time champion Williams has defended it just once, in 2010., 11:D – The England spinner silenced his critics with a match-winning seven-wicket haul after a difficult start in the first Test against India., 12:C – Pannetta defeated her compatriot Roberta Vinci in a memorable 2015 US Open final, after the pair eliminated Simona Halep and Serena Williams in the semi-finals. Adriano Panatta was the last man to win a grand slam before Sinner at the 1976 French Open., 13:D – “It’s history, my friend,” said Lourimi, one of three athletes who traveled through the North African country to the Games had been sent. Tunisia has never participated in the Winter Olympics, but perhaps Lourimi can change that in 2026. ‘He hasn’t scored enough goals to celebrate himself,’ Maddison said of Maupay after the match., 15:C – Klopp admitted he was emotional after the Liverpool crowd repeatedly chanted his name during the 5-2 FA Cup -Norwich victory – his first game at Anfield since announcing his departure at the end of the season.
