Jose Mourinho described Scott McTominay as “fantastic” in response to his decision to select the young midfielder ahead of Paul Pogba for Wednesday’s Champions League last 16, first-leg draw with Sevilla.

It was not until Will Hayward’s third straight night awake, when he was on the final 70 kilometres of the 298km Hong Kong Four Trails Ultra Challenge (HK4TUC), that he hit the “sleep wall”.

Survival is a fitting concept – the HK4TUC links all the major trails in...
