Masters quiz: What did former champions serve at their champions dinner?

BBC News

It's a tradition dating back to 1952, started by two-time Masters winner Ben Hogan. Each year the defending Masters champion selects the menu for the Champions Dinner, an exclusive event only attended by previous Green Jacket winners, on the Tuesday before the tournament, which begins this year on Thursday, 6 April. England's Danny Willett, who won last year's opening major of the year, promised to include Yorkshire pudding and the Sheffield golfer will also be treating his fellow champions to cottage pie, roast beef and local favourite, Henderson's Relish.

Manchester City crowned English Premier League champions

Al Jazeera

Manchester City have won the English Premier League title without even playing on Sunday after nearest challenger Manchester United were shocked 1-0 loss at home to bottom-placed West Bromwich Albion. After all their efforts to stop City from clinching the league in their 3-2 derby win last week, United offered a clear reminder of why they have not been close contenders for the title this year, with an abject display lacking in creativity. Their fans, who had celebrated the comeback victory at the Etihad last week, booed Jose Mourinho's side off the field after they lost to a team who had not won since January. It was City's third title in seven seasons and easily its most convincing, with Pep Guardiola's team 16 points clear and still having five games to play this season. City's other two Premier League triumphs, in 2012 and 2014, were sealed on the final day.
