UPDATE: Sport have since released a statement to explain the original front cover which they say has become a global “trending topic.”
“This image was taken by Sergio Perez of Reuters, after Puyol had scored a goal in the Santiago Bernabeu in the Copa del Rey match of 01/20/2012. When we released the cover this Monday night, social networks were disturbed by the position of Xavi and Puyol thus, not to hurt feelings, we decided to change the image of the original cover.”
