It was a big week for sport with Euro 2016, Wimbledon and the Tour de France all in full swing. We took the opportunity to find out where to get a good beer in Paris in advance of the final, see what a competitive cyclist actually eats and where you can get the Wimbledon buzz in London, even if you weren't on centre court.
