Sporting heroes are on the Costa del Sol for The Marca Sport Weekend Marbella: The event, organised by theMarbella City Council and the leading sports newspaper, will bring together more than 80 professionals and legends from a wade range of sports in 50 free activities. The event will begin on Friday with several highlights such as meetings with Boris Becker and Mick Doohan, the so-called ‘Craziest match in history’, which will feature footballers Vero Boquete, Diego Forlán and Carlos Cuellar with a hundred youth players.
There will also be a talk and screening of the Spain-Malta match won by Spain 12-1 and considered the most incredible feat in the history of Spanish football, despite some detractors who believe running up high scores is counter productive to the overall health of the sport. Should make for an interesting discussion.
On Saturday morning the programmes starts at 10.15 am, with the talk titled ‘Making a star’ by Toni Nadal, followed by a meeting with world record holder Hicham El Guerrouj and Fermín Cacho. There will also be an exhibition by the 2010 BMX world champion, Viky Gomez and simultaneous chess games against Anatoli Karpov. Football fans will be able to view a debate on the Spanish national leagues with the presence of the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, and Atlético de Madrid’s Enrique Cerezo, among others. Many more events are scheduled.
The complete programme can be seen at https://www.sportweekend.com/

Venice ‘on its knees’ after second-worst flood ever recorded: Venice, Italy (AP) – The worst flooding in Venice in more than 50 years prompted calls Wednesday to better protect the historic city from rising sea levels as officials calculated hundreds of millions of euros in damage. More than 85% of the city was flooded. The water reached 1.87 meters (6.14 feet) above average sea level Tuesday, the second-highest level ever recorded in the city and just 7 centimeters (2½ inches) lower than the historic 1966 flood. Another wave of exceptionally high water followed Wednesday. AP Photos/Luca Bruno  https://apnews.com/2e212a874a064ce4af63dc3ffda0258e
