A sideshow to the NBA playoffs which has captured a lot of attention has been the ongoing trolling between NBA commentators and league legends Shaq and Charles Barkley.
The pair have been furiously trolling each other for sleeping on the job during their network's coverage of the NBA post-season.
As one Twitter user succinctly pointed out, it’s the only time when sleeping on the job is turned into ‘content’!

3 – Racing – Golden Girl Jamie Kah shines again
Jamie Kah is never far away from the winner’s circle and the golden girl of racing saluted again on Saturday, taking flight on Vega One in the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup at Eagle Farm.
Kah’s peach of a ride on the Toby Gollan-trained Vega One saw her become the first female jockey to record six Group 1 wins!
This woman is just incredible. This is the best ride I have ever seen from any jockey ever. I am in awe of what I have just witnessed here… watched it at least 10+ times now. Take a bow Jamie Kah #GIRLPOWER https://t.co/PqTJTsmdqS

2 – Football – Manchester United sunk by Spain’s yellow submarine
Manchester United’s trophy hunt was sunk by Spain’s Yellow Submarine in one of the most dramatic finals in Europa League history.
Villareal denied the Red Devils Europe's second tier trophy after edging the English giants 11-10 in a pulsating penalty shoot-out after scores were locked at 1-1 at the end of regulation and extra-time.
It was penalty perfection for the Spaniards who kicked 11 straight from the spot while United kicked 10 straight before goal-keeper’s David De Gea’s unfortunate missed penalty handed the Yellow Submarine the title.
DAVID DE GEA DENIED IN PENALTIES, AND VILLARREAL WIN THE EUROPA LEAGUE!
An incredible penalty shootout, decided by an unbelievable ending.
The Yellow Submarine win 11-10 on penalties!

1 – Football – Chelsea’s Champions League glory

Kai Havertz slotted home the solitary goal in an engrossing final which saw the Blues capture their first Champions League title since 2011-12.
Ecstasy for Chelsea but pain for City who were chasing a treble of trophies.
KAI HAVERTZ PUTS CHELSEA AHEAD
The pass from Mason Mount is breathtaking. The finish inspired.
His first EVER goal in the UEFA Champions League, and what a time to score.
