An emotional Usain Bolt served as a pallbearer at the funeral of former Team GB athlete, Germaine Mason, who was farewelled in Jamaica on Sunday. Mason, who won a silver for Great Britain at the Beijing Olympics in August 2008, died after crashing his motorcycle in Jamaica on April 20, while returning home from a party along with Bolt and fellow sprinter Michael Frater. Jamaica’s The Gleaner reported that Mason’s cousin, Eric Cyrus Junior, delivered the eulogy and remembered the athlete as a man who thought nothing was too good for his son Jelani.
For a bride who arranged her day with military precision, it is perhaps unsurprising that Pippa Middleton wanted to ensure that even the waiting staff were as svelte and glamorous as her high society guests. Miss Middleton’s careful choreography extended to the table plan, which decreed that couples should not sit together.

Theresa May might like to think she’s a “bloody difficult woman” but in a landmark judgement that will have major consequences for British business after Brexit, the European Court of Justice might prove a bloody sight more difficult than she. The court ruled that the EU cannot sign off on comprehensive trade deals - those which mix trade and investment in a single agreement - without obtaining ratification by each every one of the EU’s member states. The European Commission had argued that it was enough for its trade and investment agreements to be rubber stamped by EU institutions in Brussels and Strasbourg, but the EU’s highest court has found in favour of national parliamentary oversight.
