Teen ousts Wozzy

Caroline Wozniacki failed to capitalise on the stellar form that won her the Malaysian Open title earlier this month as she crashed out of the third round of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells to Swiss teenager Belinda Bencic. The world number five lost in straight sets 4-6, 4-6 to the world number 37.

Young gun awards

The Danish football association DBU handed out its annual talent awards for the under-21s (Yussuf Poulsen, Red Bull Leipzig), under-19s (Joachim Andersen, FC Twente) and under-17s (Mark Brink, Esbjerg) this week. Handed out since 1987, previous winners include Daniel Agger, Nicklas Bendtner and Christian Eriksen.

Barca beat down

Aalborg was always going to have its handball hands full when it hosted FC Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League. But few expected the Spanish giants to win as convincingly as they did – an 11-31 thrashing. KIF Kolding København also lost away, going down 17-22 at HC Prvo Plinarsko Drustvo Zagreb.
