On this day in sport: Brathwaite leaves Stokes shattered, Popovich's sharp exit, Messi milestone
Carlos Brathwaite gave West Indies a historic second T20 World Cup triumph and left Ben Stokes shellshocked in 2016.FotMob - almost 3 years ago
Ben Stokes must have endured nightmares over this day four years ago, when Carlos Brathwaite smashed West Indies to T20 World Cup glory in such dramatic fashion.
Gregg Popovich also has bad memories of April 3, having been ejected only 63 seconds into the San Antonio Spurs' NBA clash with the Denver Nuggets last year.
Lionel Messi scored two penalties when Barcelona beat Milan to reach the Champions League semi-finals on this day back in 2012.
We take a look back at April 3 in sporting history.
2016 - 'Remember the name' - Brathwaite goes berserk
Stokes has had plenty to celebrate in the past year, but the England all-rounder endured a horror show at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Windies all-rounder Brathwaite was the star of the show, blasting Stokes for four sixes off the first four balls of the final over to ensure his side became the first to win two World T20 titles.
Commentator and former West Indies bowler Ian Bishop belted out "remember the name" when Brathwaite sealed a stunning victory, having needed 19 off the final over.
While Stokes has gone on to better things, he will certainly not have forgotten the name of Brathwaite.
2019 - Off you pop
Some spectators may not have taken their seats when Spurs coach Popovich was given his marching orders 12 months ago.
He took exception to a non-foul call and was issued a technical by official Mark Ayotte before being handed another by David Guthrie just over a minute after tip-off in an encounter with Denver.
The Nuggets went on to win 113-85 three nights after Popovich was also ejected during a loss to the Sacramento Kings.
2012 - Milestone for Messi as Milan crash out
There have been many days when Messi achieved a milestone and his half-century of Champions League goals came eight years ago to the day.
The Barcelona superstar made no mistake from the penalty spot twice as the Catalan giants beat Milan 3-1 to reach the last four.
There were no goals in the first leg at San Siro, but Messi proved to the match-winner, with Andres Iniesta netting the third. Chelsea ended Barca's run at the semi-final stage, though, winning 3-2 on aggregate.
