James on the ball
Tuesday was free of training for the FC Bayern pros, but James Rodríguez still reported to the Säbener Strasse and worked up a sweat. The Colombian continued his individual rehab programme under the auspices of Dr Holger Broich and Thomas Wilhelmi. The focus was on running, but James was also on the ball again. The 26-year-old has been out of action for about two weeks with muscular problems in his left calf.
Hummels against hunger
Mats Hummels has teamed up with tennis ace Angelique Kerber, singer Udo Lindenberg and UNICEF to launch a social media campaign and collect donations for malnourished children. The campaign is labelled #Stop10seconds. Every ten seconds, a child under the age of five dies from hunger, according to UNICEF. "It just can't be true that so many children are threatened by hunger, even today," the FCB centre-back said in a video.
