It was a good week for two of the biggest names in world football with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo both producing match-winning performances.

Messi produced one of finest games in a Barcelona shirt to help his side crush Real Valladolid 5-1 at Camp Nou, while Ronaldo's last-gasp penalty earned Juventus a 2-1 over Genoa.

There was also some familiar faces rolling back the years in tennis and golf.

Roger Federer sealed a remarkable 10th victory at the Swiss Indoors championship in his hometown of Basel. It was the 38-year-old Swiss' 103rd ATP singles titles.

In Japan, Tiger Woods won the Zozo Championship just two months after undergoing knee surgery. It was the 43-year-old American's 82nd PGA Tour title, equalling the record of countryman Sam Snead.

At the Rugby World Cup, England produced a stunning team performance to beat reigning champions New Zealand in Japan.
