Fighting fit

Barcelona have confirmed that both Thierry Henry and Andrés Iniesta will be ready for the Champions League final against Manchester United next week, after injuries had made them doubts.

A source at the club told the Guardian that the pair will be fit, and released a slightly bizarre appraisal of the former Arsenal striker.

'It is a little harder for Henry to get back to full fitness and sharpness because he's a tank and, besides, his problem is articular,' said the source, oddly. 'But even if it is by the skin of the teeth, he'll be there if the manager needs him. Just. But he'll be there.'
