The week in numbers: w/e 9/5/10

138 – In millions of pounds, the current debt of Portsmouth FC, about double what it was when the club went into administration at the end of February.

0 – The number of Grand Tour stage wins for both Team Sky and Bradley Wiggins before his two second victory in the opening time trial at the Giro d’Italia on Saturday.

103 – The final tally of Premier League goals for Chelsea, who hammered eight past Wigan yesterday. It is the highest total for a season in 47 years.

18 – Yesterday was the 18th consecutive league game without a win for Wigan in London, underlining quite how remote Man U‘s chances of securing the title really were.

1Mark Webber became the first F1 driver in five races this season to convert pole position into a race win at Barcelona yesterday.

85 not out – Runs scored by Cameron White off just 49 balls (including six sixes and six fours) in Australia‘s World Twenty20 win over Sri Lanka last night. The entire Sri Lankan side managed just two runs more than White.

31 – The number of league wins (from 37 matches) for Real Madrid after their 5-1 thumping of Athletic Bilbao. This is one more than Barcelona, who still lead Spain’s Primera Liga by a point with one game remaining. The previous record for wins in a season was 28, jointly held by … Real Madrid and Barcelona.

92 – The previous points record for a Primera Liga season (set by Real Madrid in 1997), already broken by both Barcelona (96) and Real Madrid (95).

00:54 – The time on Tuesday morning at which Australia’s Neil Robertson finally overcame Graeme Dott to win the World Snooker Championship.
