L'Hospitalet Athletics Club in Catalonia has been looking for ways to draw in more athletes and at the same time gain financing for the sports equipment they need.

The idea they've come up with is by no means ground-breaking, but it certainly is eye-catching.

With the help of local photographer Juan Vico, the team's athletes have posed for a calendar which is both action-packed and glamorous.

The calendar shows the sportsmen and women flexing their muscles in front of some of Barcelona's most iconic landmarks; including La Sagrada Familia cathedral, Barceloneta Beach and the Agbar tower.

The calendar — available in English, Spanish and Catalan — costs €10.

Ronaldo presents fifth Ballon d’Or to Bernabeu

Cristiano Ronaldo paraded his record-equalling fifth Ballon d'Or to an adoring Santiago Bernabeu before Real Madrid's clash with Sevilla on Saturday.

Ronaldo pulled level on Thursday with Barcelona rival Lionel Messi as the only two men to have won the annual award for the best player in the world five times.

It is the fourth time in five years Ronaldo has beaten Messi to the prize. This time he did it on the back of Madrid's feat of becoming the first side to retain the Champions League since 1990.

And the 85,000 crowd at the Bernabeu serenaded the Portuguese with chants of “Cristiano, Ballon d'Or” as he posed for photos with all five of his golden ball trophies.

A total of seven Madrid players were included in the top 30 for the prestigious award handed out by France Football magazine.

However, Real had to cope on Saturday without suspended captain Sergio Ramos, who came sixth in the voting, among a host of defensive absences as they strove to move to within five points of Barcelona at the top of La Liga.
