Footballer Alexia Putellas honoured

The footballer Alexia Putellas cannot stop winning awards: just a few hours after becoming the first Catalan player to win the Ballon d’Or (foto bottom right), she has been awarded the Creu de Sant Jordi, or Saint George’s Cross.

It is one of the most important civil honours given by the Catalan government that recognizes those that contribute to and enrich Catalonia’s identity, usually from a cultural and civic point of view.

Putellas’ leadership during FC Barcelona Femení’s historic 2020-2021 season has earned her a place on this year’s official list of recipients.

Victory in Champions League for women’s football team

They had already won the Spanish Women’s Super League, but last night (16 May) Barça’s women’s team also beat Chelsea with a goal blitz in the first half not answered by the English team, so that they could take the Champions League Cup back to Barcelona with them.

During the first minute of the game the first goal was made laying the foundation of the historic success in a thrilling two hours.

Note: later the team would also win the Spanish Copa de la Reina (the Queen’s Cup), turning the end of the season into a triple winning streak.
