Football: Crocked Ibrahimovic returns to Sweden

Paris Saint-Germain have revealed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to his native Sweden to undergo treatment on a thigh injury. The Ligue 1 leaders have not, however, confirmed how long they expect their leading scorer to be on the sidelines with the injury suffered to his right thigh in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea last week. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi told RMC radio that he expected the Swede to be on the sidelines for at least four weeks, meaning that he would not return until the start of May at the earliest.

Football: Atletico stun Barcelona, holders Bayern progress

Atletico Madrid's resurgence continued on Wednesday just a year after they were forced to sell leading scorer Radamel Falcao to reduce their huge debts as they eliminated Barcelona to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in 40 years. A goal by Koke -- who has been with the club since he was eight years old -- saw them deservedly beat Barcelona 1-0 on the night and progress 2-1 on aggregate and perhaps also register a changing of the guard at the top of Spanish and European football.
