The Bundesliga looks to be close to a return, with Angela Merkel giving it the green light on Wednesday. Ken details why this is possible, and the politics at play. Plus there’s more on England’s hard luck stories at major tournaments.

The Netflix documentary series “The Last Dance” is single-handedly getting many of us through the lockdown, and it’s appeal is now well and truly global – US fans are getting a trip down memory lane, while for the rest of the world this is the Michael Jordan career summary we’ve always wanted.

As the latest episodes talk us through Jordan’s “Republicans wear sneakers too”, his massive gambling debts, and his rivalry with the Detroit Pistons we talk to US Murph about just why, if this documentary is supposed to be about Jordan rehabilitating his image, it’s failing so badly at that exact job.
