Here's our weekly look at the greatest images from around the world of sport, with the World Athletics Championships in Moscow and the resumption of the Premier League season taking centre stage.
CONTEXT IS EVERYTHING
Swedish high jumper Emma Green-Tregaro uses the rainbow colours associated with LGBT rights to make a point against Russia's recently-passed laws banning 'gay propaganda'.
Russian pole vault queen Yelena Isinbayeva took umbrage with this critique of her government, with comments that "we just live boys with women, girls with boys" drawing widespread condemnation from the athletics community but endearing her to local politicians.
She has since backtracked, but that was far from the end of it. After winning 4x400m relay gold, two of Russia's female athletes shared an 'intimate' moment on the podium. Was this their own protest, or has a kiss between friends been misinterpreted by the Western media?
