Eric Bailly is battling to be fit for Manchester United’s clash with Everton at Old Trafford at the end of a difficult few weeks in which he was hurt in a car accident close to the club’s training ground.

Bailly was a passenger in a car that skidded on ice and collided with a tree stump on a back road out of Carrington before last week’s shock defeat against Sheffield United.

The Ivory Coast defender had a large plaster over an injury to his shin and missed the game, but returned on the bench for the last two matches against Arsenal and Southampton.

Covid-19 exercise masks to be sold by French sports brand

Face masks for exercise are set to go on sale in France from February 15, with two models available for running and winter sports. 

Sports brand Salomon which created the masks, after 8 months of development, say they will allow people to exercise at intense levels without risk, as the material used uses top level filtration technology. 

It said the mask fulfils “the health certification criteria linked to air flow, and the expulsion of Co2 produced by the athletes’ breathing.” 

The World Health Organisation has previously advised against wearing masks during exercise, due to the risk of reduced breathing capacity.

Initially the masks are being aimed at high-level athletes, who need to continue training while remaining protected from Covid-19. Around 10,000 masks will be produced each month, with models retailing at €18. 

Guillaume Meyzenc, a vice-president at Salomon, said they thought the ski lifts would be open this winter and

3 key trends for fitness and sports in 2021

Gumtree has highlighted three key trends that will impact the fitness and sports sectors in 2021.

January is synonymous with the two extremes – stretching budgets to deal with the hangover of December’s balloon expenses while enduring January’s 45 weeks until payday and all the ‘new year, new me’ resolutions we make to shift the extra love-handles that December (and the months preceding) left us with.

The two together are a big ask – January’s bank balance is low, and the cost of fitness equipment is high. If you’re determined that this is indeed your year to focus on getting a fighting fit, consider buying second-hand fitness equipment to lighten the ‘load’.

With almost 9,000 sport and fitness items listed on its site, Gumtree anticipates the following 2021 fitness trends.
