Farcical scenes as Sparta presented with football league title
At the other end of the table Opava and Ceske Budejovice were relegated. The Czech league's top scorer, meanwhile, was Sparta's Tomas Jun with 14 goals. That is the lowest tally of any top scorer in the history of the Czech league, and it must be said that between a long series of corruption scandals and low standards on the pitch, the 2004-2005 season has been one of the worst ever in Czech football.
Jankulovski joins AC Milan, Baros considering Valencia move
Further afield, the manager of Italy's Udinese has said the club has sold Czech international Marek Jankulovski to AC Milan, still one of the best clubs in the world despite losing to Liverpool in last week's Champions League final. Liverpool's Milan Baros, meanwhile, says he's more likely to join Spain's Valencia than remain on Merseyside. Baros is currently in Prague preparing with the Czech team for home World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Macedonia.
Czechs perform poorly at French Open
This year's French Open won't be remembered fondly by Czech tennis fans. Of all the Czechs at Roland Garros only men's number one Radek Stepanek got past the singles second round. Stepanek was beaten in five sets by Sebastian Grosjean of France in the third in a match lasting over four hours.
