In this talk I shall talk about some properties of tournaments. A tournament is k-linked if for every two disjoint subsets A, B of order k and any assignment of the vertices of A to vertices of B there exist k vertex disjoint paths routing the prescribed pairs. We will discuss a recent result which asserts that there exists a function f such that for any positive integer k, if a tournament is 4k-strongly-connected and has minimum out-degree at least f(k), then it is k-linked. This comes close to resolving a conjecture of Pokrovskiy. Along the way, we show that a tournament with sufficiently large minimum out- degree contains a subdivision of a complete directed graph.
