Thierry Henry throws first pitch before New York Mets game

Thierry Henry threw out the first pitch at Citi Field with characteristic nonchalance
Thierry Henry threw out the first pitch at Citi Field with characteristic nonchalance.

With Barcelona still in the United States on their preseason jaunt, Thierry Henry fulfilled his ambassadorial duty by representing the club at the MLB game between New York Mets and Oakland Athletics on Sunday.

Henry attended the game at Citi Field alongside fellow Barca alumni Juliano Belletti, who were both presented with their very own personalised Mets jerseys to kick things off.

The Frenchman was then invited to toss out the ceremonial first pitch, which he did with characteristic nonchalance.

John Terry lifts first trophy as Aston Villa player, and it's... different

John Terry kicked off his Aston Villa career by adding yet another trophy to his already bulging collection of silverware.

The former Chelsea captain made his bow for Villa in a preseason tournament out in Germany, seeing off competition from Duisburg and Hertha Berlin to win the "Cup of Traditions".

And what a mighty cup it is too -- a small figurine clambering out of an oversized burst football in which he was presumably imprisoned, all atop a swirling plinth made from precious gold and silver...

Ronald McDonald leads Manchester United, Real Madrid onto pitch

Ronald McDonald led Real Madrid and Manchester United out before their pre-season friendly in California.
Watch as Real Madrid and Man United's ICC match ends in a bizarre penalty shootout with an astounding seven misses.
With both sides combining to miss seven attempts, Man United escaped with a 2-1 penalty shootout win over Real Madrid.

More than a few quizzical eyebrows were raised at the very start of Manchester United and Real Madrid's friendly meeting in San Francisco on Sunday night as the two sides emerged from the tunnel.

At the behest of the matchday sponsors, the two sides were escorted out onto the pitch at the Levi's Stadium by none other than Ronald McDonald himself.

Ronald McDonald made a surprise appearance before Manchester United and Real Madrid kicked off in Santa Clara.

The red-haired fast food clown then joined the line-up to shake hands with the two teams during the prematch formalities.

Mercifully, McDonald didn't...

Minnesota United finds a 'positive' after 3-0 home defeat vs. Red Bulls

Staying upbeat on social media after a defeat is never easy, so spare a thought for the good folks at Minnesota United, who had to find something to say after Saturday's defeat to the New York Red Bulls, which was the Loons' 12th in 21 games in their inaugural MLS season.

However, while kudos go to the players involved for timing their forward runs, we're not sure this will lift morale. 

Alternatively, maybe this is merely a nice line in self-deprecation; either way, everyone associated with...

Real Salt Lake's Mike Petke a picture of anger in postmatch news conference

Real Salt Lake coach Mike Petke unleashed on referees in his press conference following their 1-1 draw against Sporting KC.

Real Salt Lake coach Mike Petke was not a happy camper after Saturday night's 1-1 draw with Sporting Kansas City.

Petke was dismissed from the touchline in the 72nd minute of the clash for kicking off after Joao Plata was not awarded a foul -- and he took out his frustration at those in his postmatch news conference.

The RSL boss let everyone know that he was not pleased with the decision not to hand his side a free kick after Plata was put in what he described as "a freaking headlock," handing...
