Episode 13 of the podcast digesting and analysing the week in sports news with Rob Harris, Martyn Ziegler and Tariq Panja. On the agenda on April 16, 2021:

  • Steve Cockburn from Amnesty, a Newcastle fan, joins the pod to talk through the human rights issues in Saudi Arabia, why they aren't calling for boycotts of the Beijing Olympics or Qatar World Cup - and how players should handle scrutiny about playing next year in the Gulf nation.
  • The Champions League semifinal lineup is complete and PSG against Manchester City means it's Qatar against Abu Dhabi. We'll assess how the richest clubs have reached the last-four with Chelsea also taking on Real Madrid. Plus the latest on the talks on the new format for the competition.
  • A 10-game ban has been handed out by UEFA for racism but why was the victim Glen Kamara of Rangers also punished? Hear from Clarence Seedorf on booking players who cover their mouths.
  • In Olympic news, new coronavirus concerns about the Tokyo Games.
  • Why Christian Coleman won't be competing at the Games after the world's current fastest man lost his appeal over missed drugs tests
  • And how Russia's uniforms in Tokyo will still look very Russian despite the country's doping punishment.
