The sporting week in pictures, including Stuart Broad, Kylian Mbappe and Zlatan Ibrahimovic

We pick out some of the stunning images from the last seven days

The first cricket Test series since the coronavirus lockdown finished this week with England securing a 2-1 victory over the West Indies in Manchester.

Fast bowler Stuart Broad made the headlines after securing his 500th Test wicket when he dismissed Kraigg Brathwaite on the final day at Old Trafford.

Broad went on the clinch a 10-wicket haul in the match that England won by 269 runs. After three one-day internationals against Ireland, England then face Pakistan in a Test-match series starting on Wednesday.

On the football pitch, champions Liverpool finished their Premier League campaign on 99 points after a 3-1 win at Newcastle United.

In France, there was controversy in the French Cup final when Paris Saint-Germain's star attacker Kylian Mbappe was left in agony – and in tears – after a horror challenge by Saint Etienne captain Loic Perrin, who was sent off as a result.

Mbappe was left with an ankle injury that means he will miss the Champions League quarter-final with Atalanta in Lisbon on 12 August.

PSG won the match 1-0 thanks to a goal with Neymar scoring the winner in France's first competitive fixture since March 11 following the pandemic.
