Thirty-six years after Diego Maradona helped Argentina beat Germany to lift the World Cup in Mexico City, the shirt he wore in the game has returned to his homeland.

Germanys Lothar Matthaeus, who swapped shirts with Maradona, donated the jersey to the Argentine embassy in Madrid in August and it was handed over to the countrys football association (AFA) by collector Marcelo Ordas on Wednesday.

I want to thank you, Marcelo, for having brought us this armor. An important armor for all of Argentine football. This shirt allowed us to hug each other when we won the title of Mexico, AFA president Claudio Tapia said in a statement.

The value of this means a lot to our country and our history.

Maradona set up Jorge Burruchaga for the winner in the 1986 final at the Azteca Stadium as Argentina triumphed 3-2 to claim their second World Cup title.

Maradonas Hand of God shirt, which he wore when he scored two of the most famous goals in soccer history against England in the 1986 World Cup quarter-finals, sold for a then-record 7.14 million pounds ($8.01 million) at an auction in May.

That shirt is on loan to the Sports Museum in Qatar which is hosting this years World Cup starting on Nov. 20.

Djokovics win, which came with a cheque for $4.7 million, matched Roger Federers record

For the 23-year-old Ruud it was a third near-miss of the year. He also lost the finals of the French and US Opens.

TURIN, Italy: Novak Djokovic claimed a sixth ATP Tour Finals title on Sunday with a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Norways Casper Ruud, to match Roger Federers record.

The 35-year-old Serb, the oldest player to win the Finals, ended in style after a season in which he missed two majors because of his vaccine status but also claimed his seventh Wimbledon title.

The win, which also brings a cheque for $4.7 million, came seven years after his last ATP Finals victory and will lift him from eighth to fifth in Mondays new rankings.

I made him run, made him play, said Djokovic.

I was really pleased with the way I played. I was looking to be very aggressive and it worked great. I am really pleased with the performance.

Djokovic started strongly with two break points on his opponents first serve.

But the Norwegian held and at 2-1, the Serb began to struggle, raising fears of a repeat of the physical slump he experienced in his two previous matches against Daniil Medvedev and Taylor Fritz.

Djokovic, however, served superbly, not giving Ruud a single break point in the match. He recovered physically and made the all-important break at 5-6 to take the opening set.

The Serb took charge of the second set early on, breaking to open up a 3-1 lead. He served out the match with an ace to claim his sixth Finals crown.

It is the Finals. Usually these kind of matches are decided by very small margins, said Djokovic.

One break of serve was enough in both sets. I knew Casper was playing really well coming into this match.

We both served really well and I think in some decisive moments, like the 12th game of the first set, I managed to put a few returns back in play.

It marked the end of an outstanding week for Djokovic who was given clearance to return to Melbourne for the Australian Open in January.

At the start of the year, he was detained and deported from Australia over his non-vaccinated status on Covid.

He was initially barred by the then-conservative government from returning to Australia until 2025 but Australias new Immigration Minister Andrew Giles said this week that with a significant easing in pandemic restrictions, the nine-time champion was now welcome to return.

For the 23-year-old Ruud it was a third near-miss of the year. He also lost the finals of the French and US Opens.

In the end its been disappointing to end up losing these big finals, he said.

Overall if you gave me an offer to end the year at No. 3, play the finals that Ive played, at the first of January this year, I would probably sign the contract right away.

Ive overachieved compared to my own mind, so Im very happy about that.

Ruud has never taken a set from either Djokovic or his French Open final conqueror Rafael Nadal.

They have this sort of ability in them to step up when they really have to that I dont have, Ruud said. They always seem to win the close points, the close sets.

The American Rajeev Ram and Britains Joe Salisbury took the doubles title with a 7-6 (7/4), 6-4 win over the Croatian pair of Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic.

A sold-out Grand Prix saw scores of celebrities turn up to witness the action at Yas Marina Circuit

ABU DHABI: An exciting season finale in Abu Dhabi saw Max Verstappen wrap up his stellar Formula One campaign with yet another race victory.

A sold-out Grand Prix saw scores of celebrities turn up to witness the action at Yas Marina Circuit. From Pep Guardiola to Shaquille ONeal to Usher to Usain Bolt the race in the UAE capital was a star-studded affair.

Heres what we learned from the F1 season-closer...

World champion Max Verstappen picked up a third consecutive victory at Yas Marina Circuit, marking the first time he has pulled off a three-peat at the same race in his career.

The Red Bull man concluded the season with 15 victories from 22 races in 2022 and he cant wait to try and do it all over again next year.

Its been really enjoyable to work with the whole team and to be able to achieve something like this this year, said Verstappen.

I know its going to be hard to replicate something like this. But its also very good motivation to try and do well again next year.

An amazing way to end an incredible season for aRacingGLB.

All in all, the whole season has been unbelievable and its been very enjoyable with the team. Thank you so much to everyone for your hard /nsUP2qhOIj

In the battle for the runner-up spot in the drivers championship, Ferraris Charles Leclerc pipped Sergio Perez by placing second at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix ahead of the Red Bull driver, who completed the podium in third.

A one-stop strategy from Ferrari for Leclerc made all the difference and it not only secured second place for the Monegasque driver, but also second place for the Italian marque in the constructors championship.

I was 110 percent from the first lap to the last lap, said Leclerc, who outscored Perez by just three points in the drivers standings.

Honestly, we had the perfect race for us, there was not much more today. I knew that the only possibility for us to beat Checo (Perez) today was with a different strategy and playing with the tyre management, which we did really well today. And we managed to make the one-stop work. So really, really happy.

2nd in the Driver and Teams Championship. We did the best race possible and for that Im happy.

Thank you for all the support during the year. Well work more than ever to do a further step in the right direction to fight for the championship next m/JAgZHqElgy

Vettel hopes to leave lasting legacy

Sebastian Vettels F1 career ended with a 10thplace finish in Abu Dhabi and featured some thrilling battles with Esteban Ocon and Daniel Ricciardo.

The four-time world champion enjoyed an emotional weekend filled with tributes from within the F1 paddock and beyond and he left the track with some lovely words about the legacy he hopes to leave behind in the sport.

I feel a bit empty, to be honest, its been a big weekend, said the Aston Martin driver.

I think the last two years have been very, maybe disappointing from a sporting point of view, but very, very useful and important to me in my life, a lot of things happened. A lot of things that I realized.

I think its a huge privilege being in the position that we are in and with that comes some responsibility. So I hope to pass on a little bit to the other drivers to carry on some of the good work.

Its great to see that we have the power to inspire you with what we do and what we say. So I think there are far bigger and far more important things than racing in circles, but obviously its what we love and through that if we can transfer some of the really important values thats big.

And I think for that the last two years have been great for me.

Lewis Hamiltons streak of 15 consecutive seasons in which he has won at least one race has come to an end after failing to top the podium at any Grand Prix throughout his 2022 campaign.

Since making his F1 debut in 2007, Hamilton had won a race in every single year he has competed in Formula One up until this season.

2022 is also the first season in Hamiltons career in which he hasnt scored a pole position.

His year to forget ended with a car retirement at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, with just three laps to go, and the seven-time world champion is grateful his season with Mercedes W13 car is finally over.

Im looking forward to the end of Tuesday because its the last time I will drive this car and I dont ever plan to drive this one again, Hamilton had said after qualifying on Saturday.

He joked on Sunday that he might call in sick so he doesnt have to drive the car during the Pirelli test at Yas Marina Circuit on Tuesday.

I always believed right until the last race that there was potentially a chance [to win], Hamilton said after his DNF in the UAE capital.

I think its important to hold onto hope and just keep working. I gave it everything and the last race was almost like the whole season; it summed up the whole year. Glad its done.

A race that summed up our season.pic.twitter.com/48VAI6PUa7

Wolff focused on giving drivers a competitive car

Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff said on Saturday the W13 provided a necessary learning experience for them and joked that it will not be forgotten as the car that dominated the Brazilian Grand Prix.

I think this car will always have a special place in our collection, very far back. But I think that hopefully the next years will do her justice. Because the learning curve with that car was enormous. Our fundamental understanding of aerodynamic, vehicle dynamics correlation has gone through a step change of learning.

Wolff believes Hamilton will not be too disheartened by seeing his streak of annual victories snapped and says the most important thing is to get both his drivers in a competitive car in 2023.

Lewis says that the one victory a year isnt really a record that bothers him, said Wolff.

And if Im trying to put myself in his shoes, where I was before Brazil, it didnt particularly bother me whether we could win a race this season because all our eyes are already on next year.

But then having won one (George Russells triumph in Brazil), it felt pretty good, certainly nobody can say, Well they didnt win a race that year.

So I dont think that this particular record is an important one for him. But we need to provide him with a car next year that he can fight for victories and the championship, thats most important and he knows that.

Esteban Ocon can breathe a huge sigh of relief as his stressful weekend in Abu Dhabi ended with him placing seventh in the race, which helped his Alpine team lock down fourth place in the constructors championship, ahead of McLaren.

With his teammate Fernando Alonso unable to complete the race due to a suspected water leak in his car, Ocon carried the burden alone at Yas Marina Circuit and the Frenchman certainly delivered.

Im very, very pleased with the result that we got today. Obviously one more lap and we could have probably got Lando (Norris). It was very, very close race the whole way but that doesnt matter; all the targets that we set ourselves are accomplished, said Ocon.

We finished fourth in the constructors championship, thank God for that, I lost two and a half kilos this weekend of stress and being too focused. It is also my best season in Formula One in terms of points. So Im very pleased with that. A good job by the whole team to develop the car so much over the year and hopefully we can close even more the gap for next year.

P4 in the Constructors Championship.

A year of hard work and commitment from every single person involved in our team.

Well keep pushing as one.pic.twitter.com/YBV2xBUFKJ

McLarens Lando Norris finished sixth in Abu Dhabi and set the fastest lap to end his campaign in seventh place in the drivers championship, just one spot off his position from last year.

Its where we deserve to be, P5, said Norris of McLarens place in the constructors championship.

I guess you feel very disappointed when theres a shot at P4 and you could have had it. But weve had bad weekend of reliability. Alpine have had four, five. Theyve been the quicker car the majority of the year.

I think to have kept in the fight with them for so long proves how good of a job weve done with a worse package honestly. And therefore thats why Im quite happy. Were P5 but there are a lot of good things about the job that were doing. Its just you need a good car and we just started too far behind in the beginning of the season.

Closing the book on the 2022 season. Its over to you,@LandoNorris

Ricciardo looks to rebuild himself

Daniel Ricciardo has no idea if Abu Dhabi was his last-ever race in Formula One, but the Australian is entering the unknown with a solid perspective on how he can use his time away from the cockpit to his advantage.

McLaren ended Ricciardos contract early and he will be without a seat for next year. He is likely to sign a deal as a reserve driver for his former team, Red Bull, but assures he would only be around for at most a dozen races in 2023.

The role Ill have will not be 24 races. If I was there 24 races then Ill probably be on the grid racing. I wanted to make that clear that, look, I want to still be involved, but personally for me, for my own headspace, I need some time away from the travel and everything, explained Ricciardo.

A fan favorite and popular figure in the paddock, Ricciardo finished ninth in Abu Dhabi, despite a three-grid place penalty for his crash with Kevin Magnussen in Brazil the previous week.

Im relieved that the season finished like this and not like the race in Brazil. To see the chequered flag, to finish in the points, just makes me a little more at peace with how this year has ended, said Ricciardo.

Asked about how it might feel next season being at a Grand Prix without being able to race, he said: Thats honestly a feeling which in a way, I hope, makes me a little bit agitated, makes me hungry, makes me a little bit edgy.

Ill truly know then if my place is back on the grid. If Im watching as a fan and not really caring too much, then I also have my answer that, okay then, my future looks different. I hope to get these feelings of course, Im sure I will.

But it also allows me some time off and some time to rebuild myself. Just to get a year of not so many highs and lows, just something a bit more balanced, also just for me personally I think will make me a little more consistent and a little happier.

Final race hugs with the family before lights out

Ferraris Carlos Sainz believes he may have to adjust his driving style to be as competitive as his teammate Leclerc next year but is pleased with the progress he has made in 2022.

The Spaniard finished fifth in the championship this year just like in 2021 and scored 62 fewer points than Leclerc.

Sainz says his relationship with his teammate is as strong as ever and was thrilled to see Leclerc secure second in Abu Dhabi.

I think he absolutely deserves it, said Sainz. I think he deserves to finish second this year. Hes been super strong all season with this generation of cars. Hes been driving extremely well and I may have to adapt and change a bit my driving to try and be closer to him. Butcongratsbecause he did a great season.

Sainz says Ferrari were out-developed by Red Bull and Mercedes in the second half of the season, which explains why they were unable to win any of the last 11 races of 2022.

Very simply, Red Bull is the stronger package, together with Max and we need to catch up a bit and out-develop them next year, added Sainz.

We want to beat them. I think its fair, its our first year back in the fight for the championship, so theres still things we need to learn, while Red Bull have been there with Merc the last two seasons. And we are a bit new for this. Well learn a lot from this.

P4. Solid race to finish P2 with Charles and P2 with the team. Not an easy year, but my feeling with the car was much better in the 2nd half. Thank you team and tifosi for your endless efforts and support! Bring on 2023! Forza Ferrari!

Asian champions Qatar enjoyed backing of majority of crowd at 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium

Ecuador proved too strong on the field as they cruised to a 2-0 victory

DOHA: Qatar became the first home team to lose their opening World Cup match as Ecuador cruised to a 2-0 victory over the hosts, with Enner Valencia scoring twice in the tournament curtain-raiser on Sunday.

Asian champions Qatar enjoyed the backing of the majority of the crowd at the 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium, but could not follow a glitzy opening ceremony with a statement performance.

Ecuador thought they had made a dream start when they silenced the home fans as Valencia headed in, only for the goal to be ruled out by VAR for an offside in the build-up.

Valencia did break the deadlock with a penalty in the 16th minute and doubled his tally just after the half-hour mark.

Qatar improved slightly in the second period, but by the end of the 90 minutes, the excitement which greeted the build-up featuring Morgan Freeman and BTS star Jung Kook was a distant memory as thousands of fans left early amid a deflated atmosphere.

Felix Sanchezs Qatar will likely need a positive result in their second Group A match against Senegal on Friday just to avoid the ignominy of becoming only the second hosts, after South Africa in 2010, to be dumped out in the first round.

Hopes were high among the crowd that Qatar could make a winning start, but the deficiencies of the World Cup debutants were ruthlessly exposed by an impressive Ecuador.

Qatar failed to even muster a shot on target in the game, with spectators filing out of the stands long before the final whistle.

In the 92-year history of the tournament, home countries had previously won 16 and drawn six of their opening matches.

The South Americans had the ball in the net inside three minutes when captain Valencia nodded home from Felix Torres miscued overhead kick.

VAR officials spotted an offside against Michael Estrada in the build-up after Torres challenged for the ball with Qatar goalkeeper Saad Al Sheeb.

Ecuador were completely dominant in the early exchanges, though, and were awarded a penalty after Valencia was tripped by Al Sheeb when through on goal.

The former West Ham forward coolly sent Al Sheeb the wrong way from the spot and stroked the ball into the bottom corner to score his 36th international goal.

Ecuador did not have to wait long to double their advantage as, after a surging run from Moises Caicedo, right-back Angelo Preciado swung in a cross which Valencia met with a thumping header.

Even the small section of noticeably enthusiastic Qatari fans situated behind the goal, who arrived together after the majority of the crowd and wore matching t-shirts, briefly fell silent.

Almoez Ali, the hero of Qatars 2019 Asian Cup success, should have pulled one back on the stroke of half-time but could only steer a free header wide from eight yards out.

Ecuador allowed Qatar more of the ball after the break but still looked the more dangerous side, with Romario Ibarra bringing a diving save from Al Sheeb.

Valencia hobbled off in the 77th minute after being on the wrong end of a series of heavy challenges, although that would only have taken some of the shine off a famous night for Ecuador.

By the time an official attendance of 67,372 was read out over the tannoy, the stadium was barely half full.

Ferraris Leclerc secures overall runners-up spot

Vettel brings curtain down on F1 career with points finish

ABU DHABI: Double world champion Max Verstappen signed off on a dominant 2022 Formula One campaign with a record-extending 15th win of the year in Sundays season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, as Charles Leclerc secured second in the overall standings.

The Dutchman, who wrapped up the title last month in Japan with four races to spare, was unchallenged as he led from pole position to chequered flag.

He crossed the line 8.7 seconds ahead of Leclerc, who having made just one stop, held on to second ahead of Verstappens two-stopping team mate Sergio Perez to edge him in their battle for second.

The pair had gone into the race level on points with Leclerc ahead on a countback of wins.

Sundays victory was the 35th of Verstappens career and second in a row at the Yas Marina track.

However, unlike last season, it was a straightforward race that required no safety car interruptions.

Incredible to win again here and 15th win of the season unbelievable, said Verstappen.

Its been really enjoyable to achieve something like this this year, I know it will be hard to replicate but it is good motivation to try and do the same next year.

Perez, who completed a front row lockout for Red Bull in qualifying, was unable to hand the team a one-two finish on Sunday.

He chased down Leclerc at the end on fresher tires but, delayed by slow moving backmarkers, ran out of laps.

Its how it is sometimes, said Perez.

At the end of the day, I have to be happy as I gave it my all and Im sure well be back stronger next year.

I was 110 percent from the first lap to the last lap, he said.

I knew the only way to beat Checo was with a different strategy.

Carlos Sainz, who went wheel-to-wheel with Lewis Hamilton early in the race, was fourth for Ferrari ahead of Mercedes racer George Russell, who served a five-second time penalty for an unsafe release from his pitstop.

Seven-time world champion Hamilton had his hopes of keeping intact his record of winning a race every season dashed by a hydraulics failure.

The Briton pulled into the pits to retire his Mercedes on the 55th of the races 58 laps.

Mercedess misfortunes, a week on from taking a resurgent one-two in Brazil, meant the formerly dominant champions were unable to overhaul Ferrari and had to settle for third behind the Italian team in the overall standings.

Sebastian Vettel scored the final point in 10th on what has been an emotional swansong weekend for the Aston Martin driver.

The German raced hard from his ninth-place grid spot but a long first stint compromised him and dropped him down the field.

He signed off with some tire smoking donuts on the start-finish straight.

Daniel Ricciardo took points in his last race for McLaren with a ninth-place finish.

Fernando Alonso, replacing Vettel at Aston Martin next year, failed to finish his last race for Alpine but the French manufacturer still secured fourth in the overall team standings ahead of McLaren.

Mick Schumacher, out of a drive next season after being replaced by Nico Hulkenberg at Haas, finished 16th ahead of team mate Kevin Magnussen.

He survived contact with Williams driver Nicholas Latifi, also out of a drive next year, that tipped both cars into a synchronized spin.
