It was a very busy sports weekend across the world (and man, is it nice to have the distraction and to see people in the stands again). Novak Djokovic took a major step toward being called the greatest mens tennis player ever with his Wimbledon win, giving him 20 majors and tying him with Rafa and Roger. It’s remarkable that we have one man who’s won 20 majors in this era. But three? And the least likely of the three (at least early his career) is about to take over the top spot.

+ “Lionel Messi finally did it. Despite his storied career, there had long been something missing for the world’s biggest soccer superstar as the 34-year-old had never been able to win a major international title with his native Argentina.” Messi Finally Secures First Major Title With Argentina’s Copa América Win.

+ In a crusher for the home team, Italy Defeated England In a Penalty Knockout To Lift The Euro 2020 Cup. (Ranked choice voting is better than penalty kicks.)

+ Sadly, but predictably, some of the missed penalty shots by England led to racist outburst online. England FA condemn racist abuse aimed at Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho after Euro 2020 shootout loss. “We’re disgusted that some of our squad — who have given everything for the shirt this summer — have been subjected to discriminatory abuse online after tonight’s game.”
