New Delhi: Sunday proved to be a special day for sports fanatics all across the world. With three major sporting events- Formula 1, T20 World Cup Final and El Clasico- scheduled in the same day; sports fans are expected to stay glued to their television sets all across the globe.
In India, no doubt after India's early exit, the interest in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup final has waned a bit, but the presence of Chris Gayle in today's final, would force the cricket enthusiast tune into the match later this evening.
At the end of the day, far away in Europe, two football clubs would clash in the much anticipated football match of the season, El Clasico.
