Under Joseph Stalin in the 1920s and 1930s, the Soviet Union was keen to ‘revolutionise everyday life’ by encouraging physical fitness and exercise. They enlisted the help of artists to help get the message across, resulting in some wonderful sporting propaganda – now part of an exhibition at the recently reopened Olympic Museum in Lausanne. Not heading to Switzerland anytime soon? Fear not, comrade: you can enjoy the selection on this very page. The Russian Avant-Garde and Sport, January 24 to May 11 at The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Hot wheels

Reminiscent of the original top-down Grand Theft Auto, except with fewer Molotov cocktails, the official F1 Challenge app is right in the slipstream of the console release of F1 2013, which was released a fortnight ago.

Strip down

Boil your football club down to its essence, and what have you got? If you’re a Man City fan, it’s probably a wad of cash and a chip on your shoulder; or, if you’re a West Ham supporter, it’s a creased and faded photo of Bobby Moore that you won’t stop waving in everyone’s face.

Roller girls

Although at first glance it might seem like a bunch of women fighting in a school gym, cult hit sport roller derby actually involves two teams of five skating around a track and getting points for lapping their opponents.

Poles apart

A century ago, Captain Robert Scott and his team perished on their return journey from the South Pole after being beaten there by a Norwegian team using dog sleds. This week, adventurer Ben Saunders is setting off to do what Scott couldn’t and complete the trek to the South Pole and back along the same route – something that has still never been done successfully on foot. He talked us through how the challenges he faces will differ from Scott’s.

Four Four Jew

The ‘Y’ word has been in the news again, at the centre of a debate over whether Tottenham fans should still use it self-referentially. Even David Cameron has commented on the issue, although he does comment on absolutely everything. Those interested in the roots of the relationship between Judaism and football should check out the brilliantly named Four Four Jew exhibition at the Jewish Museum in London.

Sport talks

There’s a running joke in the Sport office about how to write best-selling sports books. Pick a random sport, a country and a vehicle at random, and before you know it you’ll be cycling in Rwanda, playing cricket in Cuba or managing a national football team on a Pacific Island (all real books).

Splash and grab

Main image (Background Landscape) : 

Throwing yourself off a cliff just because you’re in Wales seems a bit extreme to us. But this weekend a whole load of professionals will make a special trip to Pembrokeshire’s Blue Lagoon to do just that, at the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

Time to shine

The younger rugger lads to keep an eye on in the coming years

Just two years from 2015, and we are finally accepting that the flying car, hoverboard and conveniently located manure truck-filled world we saw in Back to the Future 2 might not come to fruition. On the plus side, the Rugby World Cup kicks off two years on Wednesday, when England get the tournament under way at Twickenham (start the countdown right now).
