Latest: Eddy Merckx of Belgium wins Carom Billiards World Cup 3-Cushion in Guri - his twelfth final and eleventh title

The week in review

11th to 17th November

Almost every week there is something extraordinary happening in the sporting world and on this occasion we have to mention the Kingdom of Tonga, a Polynesian sovereign state and archipelago with a population just short of 105,000. What is amazing is that this nation keeps on punching far above its weight in rugby union and league. It is in league where they have made history by beating Australia for the first time in a match played in Auckland. It has to be said that the Tongan team was an Invitational XVIII, which perhaps places a great significance on the result. Prior to that match they had also beaten the touring Great British team, who have also gone down to New Zealand and are not having a great tour. Moving on to Equestrian, one of the major events of the year is the Stuttgart German Masters, which is a multi-sport FEI World Cup tournament from Wednesday to Sunday. Categories include Driving, Jumping, and Dressage, to name a few. It is also worth mentioning the the final round of the Longines Global Champions League is just under two weeks away. We are in the quarter-final stage of the FIFA U17 World Cup currently being hosted by Brazil. Later today The Netherlands play Paraguay followed by South Korea and Mexico. Tomorrow we have Spain v France and Italy v Brazil. 

Marc Marquez of Spain has already won the FIM MotoGP World Championship and next Sunday the long season comes to a close with a race in Spain. There have been four race weekends hosted by Spain this season, so no wonder the sport is popular and there are so many Spanish riders in the most elite championship of motorcycling. In Formula One Lewis Hamilton secured his 6th World Championship last Sunday in Austin. There are two more race weekends remaining with Brazil up next and Abu Dhabi following two weeks after. Staying with Motor Racing, the FIA World Rally Championship concludes next weekend with the Rally of Australia. Ott Tänak and co-driver Martin Järveoja have already secured the championship title for 2019. The Mountain Running season concludes next weekend with the World Championships in the region of Villa la Angostura in Argentina. Lastly, we have the Fed Cup currently underway in Australia with the score all square as we head to the final day. Tomorrow is also the start of the Nitto ATP Finals with London as the host city. The Davis Cup Final is still to come.
