Atletico fightback not good enough

Atletico Madrid put up a fierce fightback in a Champions Cup Juvenil A quarter-final second leg at the Valdebebas, but it was not good enough to earn a spot in the next round, Marca reports.

Torres' young charges, who lost the first leg 2-0 to their city rivals, scored twice in normal time to force the quarter-final tie into extra time.

However, Real Madrid killed the game off in extra time after scoring two goals to secure a 4-2 aggregate win and progress to the semi-finals of the cup competition.

Torres stuns fans with physique

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Torres impressed fans with his physique as a result of his keen interest in bodybuilding over the last two years.

After calling it quits on a lucrative football career which saw him play for club and country, the Spaniard has been working on honing himself physically.

Torres has undergone a stupendous transformation, so much so that he shocked some supporters who recently ran into him while they were on holiday.
