Our top press photos this week come from the world of sports including Tennis at Roland Garros, Cricket, Rugby and Cycling.

Each week we like to highlight some of our favourite topical press photography images of the week as captured by Press Association photographers. Although politics has rightly dominated the headlines, a lot has also been happening in the world of sport.
