It will bring together by videoconference, under the aegis of Emmanuel Macron and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, representatives of around forty states and international organizations including US President Joe Biden.

Kevin Mayer's suffering slowed down by his back in the decathlon

The Olympic Games are turning into a real Stations of the Cross for Kevin Mayer. The decathlon world record holder had to contend with back pain this Wednesday, leaving his great rival Damian Warner to take off. Since his silver medal in Rio in 2016, Mayer had everything to believe in it. He has indeed become the world benchmark in decathlon with his world record and his planetary coronation in 2017. "It's been a week since I got stuck in my back, it's been a long time since that happened", a- he explained on the verge of tears after the first three events of the day (100m, long jump and weight). "I have very little feeling, very little pleasure, but I think I can go for a medal even like that". We do not let go then and we encourage him: Come on Kevin!

Object of racism, Monaco victorious in the preliminary round of the Champions League

In sporting terms, Tuesday evening was perfect for AS Monaco.

The team easily won in Prague against Sparta (0-2) in the third preliminary round of the Champions League.

But, apart from this result, the evening was much more disappointing and even despicable.

The meeting was indeed marred by racist cries against Monegasque players.

Aurélien Tchouameni thus complained of cries of monkey while he was celebrating his goal, the first of the meeting.

It is now up to the European football authorities to look into this issue.

In the meantime, Niko Kovac is proud of his players: “we won the match, but we also won against racism.

This is the most important message of the evening ”.
