The sporting week in pictures, including Tyson Fury, Lionel Messi and Max Verstappen

We pick out some of the stunning images from the last seven days taken from the likes of Pyramids Half Marathon and Finswimming World Cup

All eyes were on the famous Las Vegas Strip last weekend as the much anticipated rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury took place at the MGM Grand.

And the fight certainly did not disappoint as British boxer Fury ended the American's undefeated record with one of the great heavyweight displays to become WBC world champion.

Wilder's corner threw in the towel after seven brutal rounds completely dominated by Fury, although the Alabama fighter would later criticise his corner for not letting him "go out on my shield" and suggested his lack of energy and subsequent defeat was down to the weight of his elaborate ring-walk costume.

In Spanish football, Lionel Messi produced yet another superlative performance in a remarkable career as he scored four in Barcelona's 5-0 thrashing of Eibar.

The Argentine had less joy in the Champions League days later when the Spaniards had to come from behind to draw at Napoli.

The next night, Messi's old rival Cristiano Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure as his Juventus side went down to a surprise defeat against Lyon.
