The Blues were far from their best at the Etihad Stadium against Borussia Dortmund and had a fortunate late penalty to thank for securing a 1-1 draw.

It was no surprise to see the golf-mad Argentineans back in the swing on Thursday.

Tevez, a 13-handicapper, has been seen as much on the course as he has on the pitch during the past 12 months.

He even surprised the sporting
world when he emerged on the green at The Open held at Royal Lytham
& St Annes.

The
28-year-old was for once not taking part as a sportsman but, was in
fact a caddie for his good friend and countryman Andres Romero, 31.

City midfielder Yaya Toure (below) gave golf a miss and headed to the training ground for treatment on a thigh injury he suffered against Dortmund.

Thomas Lund, head of the International Badminton Federation, says the Olympic match-throwing incident which led to eight players being kicked out of the Games was a 'little hiccup' which should not reflect badly on the sport in the long term.

Four women's doubles pairs were thrown out of the games after trying to lose their last group matches in order to get an easier path to the final in the knockout round.

Lund said: 'Our disciplinary committee went in and sent out a strong message that this is not acceptable.

'This sent a message to the youth of the world that this is not our sport.'

He added: 'People will probably remember the little hiccup, but there are so many positives we can take out of this.'
