Congratulations to Barcelona for winning the Champions League final (again)! They beat Manchester United 3-1 to bring the trophy home for the third time in six years. And extra congratulations to Éric Sylvain Abidal, who underwent surgery just two months ago to remove a tumour from his liver. The 31-year-old Lyonnais defender has made a speedy recovery, and played the entire Champions League final today. To honour his courage and dedication, Carles Puyol even passed him the captain’s armband after the final whistle so he could be the one to accept and raise the trophy.
