The Agenda: F1 roars into Monaco, Pakistan on tour and rugby's play-off
Formula One hits streets of Monte Carlo, Newcastle and Bedford play in first leg of Championship play-off and did you know Pakistan's cricketers were on tour?PIT STOPS ON THE SHORE …Formula One motors into its most famous venue this weekend with talk of tyres dominating the paddock. Monaco, the great street circuit, draws the bright and beautiful to its tax haven shoreline. Expect Ferrari, Lotus and Force India to benefit from the slight changes Pirelli have been allowed by the FIA to make to tyres now so prone to degradation that the swirl of endless pitstops are affecting results. Just ask Red Bull. Gives burning rubber a whole new definition. Sunday 1pm, SSF1, highlights BBC1BIG GAME HUNTERS …The first leg of rugby's Championship play-off final between Newcastle and Bedford is on Wednesday. If Bedford win the two-legged tie (second leg on 29 May) London Welsh could be reprieved from Premiership relegation. While Newcastle meet the entry criteria for the Premiership, Bedford do not, although the Blues, following Welsh's example last year, say if they win the final they would challenge any decision to keep them out of the top flight. Thursday 7.30pm, Sky Sports 4SURPRISE TOURISTS …New Zealand are playing at Lord's but did you know Pakistan are also on tour here this week? After Pakistan beat Scotland by 96 runs in Edinburgh on Friday the teams face a rematch on Sunday, before matches against Ireland in Dublin on Thursday and Sunday. Misbah-ul-Haq captains the team, with Kamran Akmal and Saeed Ajmal in the ranks. It's all part of the long buildup to the Champions Trophy in England next month, when they line up in Group B with India, South Africa and West Indies.OTHER LONDON FINAL …Wolfsburg and Lyon contest the women's Champions League final at Stamford Bridge on Thursday. Lyon are the holders, while Wolfsburg – riding the German wave of success ahead of the men's final at Wembley – accounted for Arsenal Ladies 4-1 over two legs in the semi-final. Tickets cost £10 for adults and £5 for children and are available online from chelseafc.com/uefawomensfinal.GAME 39 IMITATION …Chelsea and Manchester City meet this week in the unlikely settings of St Louis and New York City on Thursday and Saturday as part of the new fad of a "post-season tour". Tickets for the St Louis game sold out in 20 minutes and are still on sale for the game at the 50,000-capacity Yankee Stadium. Brian Kidd leads City while Rafael Benítez signs off for Chelsea before his contract expires at the end of May.BEAMING SMILES …The 2013 Women's British Team Gymnastics Championships take place on Sunday at the Guildford Spectrum. The absence of last year's winners, City of Liverpool, means the title has been thrown – or rather tumbled, rolled, balanced and leaped – wide open. Last year's silver medallists, the Academy, hope the talented Ruby Harrold can take them one place higher on the podium and Notts, third last year, feature the Downie sisters, Ellie and Becky as well as the stalwart Niamh Rippin. Other contenders include Park Wrekin College, the only club to field two teams that will include the 2013 senior Welsh champion, Georgina Hockenhull, and the 2011 British champion, Rhyannon Jones.Motor sportFormula OnePakistan cricket teamGymnasticsWomen's footballRugby unionguardian.co.uk © 2013 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

How I train: Louis Smith, gymnast
Olympic gymnast and Strictly star Louis Smith on avoiding carbs, crisps and chocolate, training twice a day, six days a week, and looking up to his mumHi Louis! How do you stay in shape? At the moment I'm really busy so I squeeze in a half-hour workout whenever I can, either at the gym or just in my bedroom.Have you kept dancing? Only in nightclubs – I might manage the odd tango or waltz there.You obviously train more intensively when you're competing in gymnastics. What's your training regime? I train six days a week, twice a day. I get up around 10am, have breakfast, then head to the gym for 12. I train until 3.30pm, break for lunch, then train again from 5-8pm.I start by warming up, then spend 30 minutes on strength and conditioning. I stretch for 10 minutes or so, then spend two hours on three of the six gymnastic apparatus. In the second session, I concentrate on the other three apparatus.I don't do much aerobic work; it's all quite explosive. I don't like running because it hurts my knees and shins – unless running after girls counts …You must eat really healthily. What's on the menu chez Smith?For breakfast I have oats and fruit. Lunch might be couscous or chickpeas with chicken – sometimes I have steak, but I don't eat much red meat. I don't have many carbs in the evening: a typical dinner is steamed vegetables.So what do you eat as a treat? I can't get away with a cheeky treat like crisps or chocolate. Pistachio nuts are as naughty as it gets.How do you relax away from the gym? Sitting on the sofa with my PlayStation. It's tough, being an athlete in your early 20s when your friends are all going out and meeting girls. I stay in to avoid temptation.Which athlete do you most admire? The person I most look up to isn't an athlete; it's my mum. She did an amazing job of bringing up me and my brother as a single parent.Can we look forward to your return to competitive gymnastics? Who knows? I'm a very creative, adventurous person; there are lots of other things I want to do. But I'm still doing a bit of training and I know I could get back into gymnastics really quickly if I wanted to.• Louis Smith is supporting the launch of Danio yoghurt.
