Independent commission could rule on Cardiff leak complaint

An independent commission may be asked to rule on Cardiff's complaint that their team line-up was leaked to Crystal Palace.

The Premier League is investigating an official complaint, with the BBC reporting that Cardiff have argued the 3-0 result on April 5 in Palace's favour should not stand.

League chiefs will decide whether the complaint should be taken forward - it is understood there remains uncertainty about whether any regulation would have been breached even if proven.

If the complaint is taken forward it is likely to be dealt with by an independent commission.

Alonso in awe of Bale's Copa del Rey winner

Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso lavished praise on Gareth Bale for the incredible solo goal which sealed his team's Copa del Rey final victory over Barcelona.

The goal was incredible , I don't think I've seen anything like it. It looked like the ball was going out and he was under pressure, he ran off the pitch to keep it in, it was just amazing.

Now we have the taste of victory. It was a really exciting game, with both sides playing at their best.
