  • Usain Bolt: Industry experts say cheating controversy will not effect sprinter's marketability

    Usain Bolt may be facing fierce scrutiny thanks to his transatlantic partying marathon but, according to industry experts, the controversy will not affect the Jamaican gold medallist's marketability, nor is it likely to jeopardise his multi-million sponsorship deals. Puma, Bolt's biggest sponsor, has supported him since 2003 – currently in a $10m-a-year deal – while, in 2012, he became the face of Richard Branson's Virgin Media, netting him £2m. During Rio 2016, reports emerged that he was planning to marry long-term girlfriend Kasi Bennett after drawing the curtain on his Olympic career.

  • Eight-year-old boy killed in his sleep after grenade thrown into flat

    An eight-year-old boy has been killed after a grenade was thrown into a flat where he was sleeping. The victim, believed to be from Birmingham, had been visiting relatives with his mother, brother and sister in the Swedish suburb Biskopsgården, near Gothenburg, the Birmingham Mail reports. Police said an unidentified attacker threw the hand grenade through a window as part of a suspected underworld feud. At least five children and several adults are believed to have been in the residence at the time of the attack. Gothenburg police spokesman Thomas Fuxborg, told local media that the boy's death is being investigated as murder. "Someone was standing outside the apartment and threw a hand grenade through the window, into the living room," he told Thelocal.se. "The boy was not part of the family registered at the address. This is abhorrent. "From the outside it is impossible to know who is in the apartment. That it affects an eight-year-old completely innocent boy, is despicable." ITV News has contacted the Foreign Office for a statement.
