Carlos Tevez kissing Diego Maradona, Ian Wright’s grandson scoring vs Arsenal, England’s Six Nations win, Aaron Ramsey’s heroics for Juventus and more things we loved

There was plenty of action across the sporting world this weekend, with some cracking rugby and football games, a major UFC fight night, and plenty more besides.

Manchester United did the double over Manchester City, Liverpool beat Bournemouth to close in on the Premier League title, while there was disappointment for Scott Quigg on his return to boxing.

Here, talkSPORT.com picks out some of the highlights….

Carlos Tevez kissing Diego Maradona

Tevez guided Boca Juniors to a 34th top-flight title in Argentina by scoring the game’s only goal against Maradona’s Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.

It saw Boca Juniors finish two points ahead of bitter rivals River Plate, who started the day in front of Tevez’s side.

The Manchester United and Man City striker rejoined his boyhood club in 2018 after a failed spell in China.

And the 72nd-minute goal meant everything to Tevez as he leapt on to the crowd fence to celebrate with fans.

Explaining his pre-match kiss with Argentina legend Maradona, he told Ole: “I knew I had to kiss Diego, I was lucky that way… sometimes you have to look for luck.”

Luke Ayling’s goal

Ayling’s spectacular volley set Leeds on their way for a vital three points against Huddersfield.

The right-back smashed home a Jack Harrison cross in the third minute, before Patrick Bamford sealed the points in the second-half.

It saw Leeds leapfrog West Brom at the top of the Championship table after Slaven Bilic’s men drew at Swansea.

Other results went Leeds’ way, too, with promotion rivals Nottingham Forest and Fulham dropping points.

Ian Wright’s grandson scoring vs Arsenal in a youth game

D’Margio Wright-Phillips, who is on a youth loan at Blackburn from Man City, scored a superb solo goal against his granddad’s former club Arsenal in an FA Youth Cup match.

The 18-year-old is the son of former Chelsea, Man City and England winger Shaun.

And he celebrated with an equally brilliant somersault.

Big things are expected of Wright-Phillips Jr.

England’s Six Nations win over Wales

England’s recovery in the Six Nations showed no sign of slowing down with a hard-fought 33-30 win over Wales.

Eddie Jones’ men lost their opening match against France, but have since bounced back with victories over Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

But the game looks set to be remembered for a bizarre incident which saw England prop Joe Marler fondling Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones’ penis in the first-half.

Jones told reporters after the game that he hopes World Rugby review footage of the incident.

Jadon Sancho’s match-winning assist

It seems like not a week goes by where we’re not talking about a Sancho goal or assist.

Well he came off the bench to assist Dortmund’s winning goal as Achraf Hakimi collected the England winger’s pass to score in the 71st minute to beat Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1.

Wednesday’s upcoming Champions League last-16 second leg tie against Paris Saint-Germain could have been a reason why Sancho was only a 66th-minute substitution.

Sancho, 19, has now scored 14 goals and registered 15 assists in just 23 Bundesliga appearances this season.

Joe Rogan and Daniel Cormier’s reaction to Beneil Dariush beating Drakkar Klose at UFC 248

Rogan and Cormier absolutely lost it when Beneil Dariush knocked out Drakkar Klose.

Both commentators hilariously had their mouth and eyes widened as they leaned back in their seats.

Rogan and Cormier just couldn’t contain their excitement.

Aaron Ramsey’s heroics for Juventus

Ramsey set Juventus on their way for a hugely important 2-0 victory over Inter Milan in the race for the Serie A title.

The 29-year-old, who has been linked with a summer exit from Turin, netted the game’s opener on 54 minutes, before Paulo Dybala’s goal further boosted Maurizio Sarri’s men.

The win saw Inter leapfrog Lazio into first place as they look to retain their title.
