    But following allegations of state-sponsored doping, the IAAF had banned all Russian athletes from competing outside of their homeland.

    "You're trying to reach that balance between being concentrated but at the same time being kind of calm and relaxed and enjoying the moment.

    "I was always trying to keep that optimal state of mind. Instead of the occasional tantrum that I used to have, I (switched) that vibration and transformed it in a tune."

  18. Puel focused on victories over records

    Southampton v Burnley (Sun, 16:00 BST)

    Claude Puel

    Southampton manager Claude Puel would gladly miss out on a 94-year club record for clean sheets if it means securing victory against Burnley on Sunday. 

    Saints are bidding to register their seventh consecutive shut-out at St Mary's, which would be just one clean sheet short of matching a club record that stretches back to 1922, when Southampton managed eight in a row. 

    Two goalless draws, however, against Hapoel Be'er Sheva in the Europa League and defending Premier League champions Leicester, have left Puel more concerned about sealing a win this weekend. 

    "I prefer to lose this record and win the game, it's not important for me," Puel said. "Of course it's interesting because you show you are strong and with a good solidarity but most important is to win the game." 

  19. Juventus could hand debut to 16-year-old

    Juventus could hand a debut to 16-year-old striker Moise Kean tomorrow against Udinese.

    Marko Pjaca suffered a cracked fibula on Croatia duty.

    "Only one of Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain will feature and for that reason, especially since Pjaca is out too, we'll be calling up Moise Kean to join the first team squad," Allegri said.

    "The boy is a real talent but at 16 years old, he needs more match day experience."
