This week saw a historic moment for England cricketer James Anderson as the veteran bowler reached a remarkable 600 Test wickets.

Anderson, 38, became the first fast bowler to hit the milestone during the final day of the rain-hit third Test against Pakistan at Southampton, that finished as a draw. England won the weather-ravaged three-match series 1-0.

The 2019/20 European football season finally reached its finale as Bayern Munich defeated Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the Champions League final.

Kingsley Coman scored a second-half winner in Lisbon as the German champions made it 11 wins out of 11 in the competition this season and sealed their sixth European Cup.

But the biggest story of the football week emerged on Tuesday as Barcelona star Lionel Messi stunned the Spanish club by handing in a transfer request.

On the tennis court, Serena Williams suffered a frustrating exit from the Western and Southern Open in New York.

The 23-time Grand Slam winner was surprisingly beaten in three sets by Maria Sakkari and likened the frustration she felt to that of being stuck in a bad relationship.
