Huddersfield became the first Premier League team to have their relegation confirmed this weekend and Lewis Hamilton secured a fortunate win in the Bahrain GP. Here we take a look at the best reactions to the action from social media.
1. Huddersfield out but not down
The Terriers became just the second team in the history of the Premier League to be relegated in March after a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday, coupled with wins for Burnley and Southampton.
Huddersfield have paid for a lack of a real goalscorer this season but last year they defied the odds to secure survival.
Some fans chose to reflect fondly over those past glories – rather than focus on the prospect of second-tier football next season, with the exceptionally named @HotlineBilling on Twitter reminiscing about arguably their best result in two years in the Premier League – last season’s 2-1 home win over Manchester United.
Huddersfield Town have officially been relegated from the Premier League, ending a two year spell in the top flight.
Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it REALLY did happen!
I don’t know how, I don’t know when, but we’ll be back one day. UP THE TOWN!

All good things must end and this Twitter user may want to choose a new handle for next term, with Billing unlikely to hand around for a campaign in the Championship.
2. Klopp snubs helping hand
At the other end of the table Liverpool ensured they retained top spot by two points thanks to a last-gasp, 2-1 victory over Spurs.
The Reds have played a game more than Manchester City in second, though, and the title race looks set to run until the end of the season.
One American journalist is so desperate to see the Anfield side end their wait for a league crown that she asked manager Jurgen Klopp if there was any way she could help at his pre-match press conference, unsurprisingly nothing sprang to the German’s mind.

3. Unity at Ferrari
Charles Leclerc should really be celebrating a maiden grand prix victory today but instead he had to settle for third spot in the Bahrain GP after technical issues allowed both Mercedes drivers to pass him, with Lewis Hamilton claiming the win.
The Monegasque did at least finish ahead of his superstar team-mate Sebastian Vettel in Bahrain and the battle between the two Scuderia drivers could well be an interesting sub-plot to the 2019 campaign.
Leclerc has understandably received plenty of praise for his ride over the weekend but has been quick to point out he is working with rather than competing with Vettel, as demonstrated by this post on his official Instagram account.
Leclerc and Vettel are both rated at 7/4 to win the next race in China.
4. Federer reaches 101
Roger Federer now boasts 101 career titles after seeing off John Isner in the Miami Open final in straight sets on Sunday.
The Swiss star – who is 7/2 to win Wimbledon this summer – produced a dominant performance in the final but remained humble afterwards, admitting he enjoyed a slice of luck earlier in the tournament on his way to Sunday’s showpiece.

5. Another incredible three from Curry
Golden State Warriors thrashed Charlotte Hornets with a 47-point blowout win on Sunday as they bounced back from an overtime defeat to Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday.
The two-time defending NBA champions still managed to provide a few incredible moments in their defeat at Minnesota, including this outrageous three-pointer from Steph Curry.
