Manchester City have revealed playmaker David Silva did not suffer any fractures in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League victory over West Ham. Silva was taken to hospital for checks on his cheekbone and collarbone after being caught in the face by an elbow from Hammers midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate at the Etihad Stadium. The 29-year-old required around eight minutes of treatment on the field before being carefully lifted onto a stretcher and carried off. City are not likely to be in a position to fully update on the Spaniard’s condition until later in the week but are now hopeful no serious injury has been suffered. This comes after the player himself also moved to allay fears about his condition on Sunday evening. Silva tweeted: “Many thanks to all the messages of support, all the tests have gone well and I’m already home. The 3 points is what was important!” Team-mate Fernando also expressed hope after the game that the damage was not significant. “On the pitch it looked like a serious injury but inside the dressing room, when we discussed it – I think he is going to be okay,” the midfielder said. The incident, which occurred in the 67th minute of City’s 2-0 win, prompted some debate about Kouyate’s actions but home boss Manuel Pellegrini gave the player the benefit of the doubt. He said: “I always think that a player doesn’t want to damage another player. The referee was so near and he decided he was unintentional. Nothing more happens.” Opposite number Sam Allardyce leapt to the defence of Kouyate, who cannot face retrospective action anyway because he was booked at the time by referee Anthony Taylor. Hammers boss Allardyce said: “It was pretty innocuous. I didn’t think it was a foul.” Press Association

He finally got the first of his career in the third inning — and the White Sox made sure he got the ball — then added another in the fifth before scoring on a bases-loaded walk.Madrigal put an exclamation mark on his big afternoon in the seventh. He led off with a single and scored the go-ahead run on Jose Abreu’s base hit, then singled again and drove in his first career run when the White Sox batted through the lineup.Madrigal almost had a 5-for-5 day, too, but Salvador Perez barely beat him to first base on a grounder in the ninth. The Royals had high hopes Jakob Junis would get their pitching back on track. He was recalled along with batterymate Cam Gallagher earlier in the day to make his season debut. Both players had been cleared after testing positive for COVID-19 and building up their stamina at the club’s alternate training site in Kansas City, Kansas.Junis and Gallagher worked well together through 4 1/3 innings, surrendering just two runs and six hits. It was the bullpen that let Kansas City down. Tyler Zuber walked three while recording just two outs. Barlow then allowed the go-ahead runs in the seventh when Greg Holland was unable to get him out of the two-on, no-out jam. Holland proceeded to allow two more of his own volition, then Glenn Sparkman threw the ball away on an easy grounder for an error that let two more runs score.KICK SAVE AND A BEAUTYJunis helped himself in the second when he deflected a liner by Eloy Jiménez off his foot to Maikel Franco at third base.

The introduction of sports tourism as a major industry in Guyana is an excellent idea, but there are a number of challenges which would need to be addressed if the concept is to be successful. This is the opinion of Technical Facilitator to the Education Ministry, Vincent Alexander.A large crowd at one of the Amazon Warriors games in GuyanaThe Education Ministry official made this statement during brief remarks he made at the inaugural workshop on Developing Sports Tourism, which was held under the theme “Improving Sports through Tourism; growing Tourism through Sports”.“Do we have facilities that in fact can be provided for sports tourism, (which) include certain standards that can market the country? Do we have the kind of human resources that ensure that you can properly organise and manage those activities?” Alexander questioned. The industry will also be challenged by the capacity of sport organisations to become involved, he added.Alexander explained that the areas highlighted — described as critical to the sports tourism industry — would need to be addressed immediately if we are to move forward.He explained that apart from sport, there are other resources within the country that can attract tourism, and he expressed hope that those resources would be highlighted for the betterment of the country.Meanwhile, in a courtesy call made on Business Minister Dominic Gaskin on Friday, St Lucia-based Sports Consultant Joseph ‘Reds’ Perreira noted that the sports tourism industry needs major private sector input and support from sports associations and other stakeholders.Although Caribbean countries which are involved in the sports tourism industry have become successful, Perreira explained, it would take some time for Guyana to experience that success, especially since there is much need for promotion via the media to help in the process of attracting persons to the country.The sports consultant expressed gratitude for the co-operation he has been given, and the hope that an internal sports tourism industry can also be realised.Minister Gaskin labelled sports tourism a viable and sustainable component of Guyana’s overall tourism product, and added that it has a contribution to make towards the nation’s development. “We understand that tourism has to be developed from the ground up; and those involved have to understand that they are participating in something that has an economic value and has a contribution to make to our economy,” the minister explained.He noted that sports should not be seen only as competition, but as having the potential to bring persons to Guyana.This workshop was a collaborative effort between the Department of Tourism in the Ministry of Business; the National Sports Commission in the Department of Culture, Youth and Sport (NSC); and the Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA).CPL and local economyMeanwhile, Guyana, through the Caribbean Premier League has benefited significantly from sport tourism since the inception of the tournament, with some US$17 million being pumped into the economy last year.CPL’s Chief Operations Officer (COO), Pete Russell, during an exclusive interview with Guyana Times had explained that the games’ economic impact locally has been both direct and indirect. He said assessment reports compiled by CPL showed that our economy received close to US$17 million last season.Russell explained that the net sum is calculated by looking at the influx of tourists to the country, hotel bookings, vending during the games, and the overall spending of persons during this period.With the Guyana Amazon Warriors success at CPL, Guyana has over the past four years benefited from some US$80M from the tournament.In fact, some US$90 million was poured into the entire Caribbean region in 2016 as a result of the CPL tournaments.
