India and Pakistan are facing off in a highly-anticipated Asia Cup cricket match in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The sub-continent neighbours resumed their rivalry in a group A match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium today.

The game is the first between the two teams since Pakistan thumped India by 180 runs in the final of the Champions Trophy at London’s Oval in June last year.

Lionel Messi scored his 48th career hat-trick as Barcelona thrashed Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven in their opening Champions League group game.

Barca’s captain curled home a stunning free-kick to open the scoring before Luis Suarez’s clever 20-yard lob hit the crossbar.

Meanwhile, legendary US swimmer Michael Phelps says more must be done to support Olympians after they move out of the spotlight.

Phelps, age 33, said in January that he contemplated suicide during the worst periods of his own depression.

He won a record 23 Olympic gold medals, competing at Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012 and, after retirement and a comeback, Rio 2016.
