Real Madrid's Luca Zidane, son of Zinedine, sent off in U17 Madrid derby

Zinedine Zidane's act proved costly for France in the 2006 World Cup final.
Zinedine Zidane sends Marco Materazzi to the deck in the 2006 World Cup final.

Like father, like son, goes the old adage and Luca Zidane seems to be making a habit of following in former France star Zinedine's footsteps.

A goalkeeper for Real Madrid's under-17 side, Luca demonstrated that he has a potentially fiery temperament too when he was sent off in the Madrid derby game against Atletico.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger loses out in eternal zip battle once again

In addition to his interminable struggle against his players' injury woes, there is another, altogether more dramatic battle that Arsene Wenger seems perennially doomed to lose.

We are of course referring to the Arsenal manager's ongoing tussle against his very own coat zipper -- an old foe that has bested the Frenchman on more occasions than we care to remember.

Fan earns belated plaudits for predicting Jamie Vardy's rise in 2012

Former England striker Paul Mariner salutes present England forward Jamie Vardy on breaking the Prem goalscoring record.
Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has broken Ruud Van Nistelrooy's record, extending his goal streak to 11 matches.

Because he climbed from the non-leagues to the top of the Premier League goal-scoring charts in the space of just a handful of seasons, the rise of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is one you can probably best describe as "meteoric."
