Britain was abuzz with discussion of Henry's unsporting conduct in clutching his face despite not being struck there at all in the Puyol challenge. Coupled with his sour graps after the deserved Champions League final loss, it seems he has lost his status as one of the rare players who can still be relied upon to demonstrate good sportsmanship.

I am surprised to see no mention of this part of the incident in your report. If Puyol deserved yellow Henry certainly did. the game would be better if players could be red carded for such behaviour in my opinion.
