A teenager with a tongue the size of a tennis ball fears going to sleep every night - in case he chokes to death on the huge organ. Krzysztof Wegrzyn, from Grojec, Poland, was born with a haemangioma - a benign tumour in the blood vessels of his tongue.
James Packer has called it quits with fiancée Mariah Carey, according to a new report. “I can’t really talk about them right now because everything is still being figured out,” she told People magazine, earlier this year.
Jamie Carragher believes Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered the worst half of football in his career during Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Manchester City on Wednesday. Carragher, who played 508 times for United rivals Liverpool, was working as a pundit for Sky Sports as he explained how the big Swedish striker deserved criticism for United’s form. Juan Mata scored the only goal of the game to help United recover from Sunday’s 4-0 defeat to Chelsea, but Carragher believes Ibrahimovic has been struggling.
Formally, yes, the heads of European Union institutions say Britain and its citizens will keep seats at council tables and in Parliament or go on with EU civil service careers in the two to three years left before it quits the 28-nation bloc. In reality, say British lawmakers and officials in Brussels - some of whom were offered trauma counselling by employers after the Brexit referendum four months ago to the day - they are already being sidelined, and expect further isolation. "Why should anyone listen to us?" said a British member of the European Parliament who forecast a December mid-term reshuffle of posts such as committee chairs will see many compatriots lose out.
Just when we think that we have seen it all on The Jeremy Kyle Show, an on-stage fight turned physical and knocked poor Jezza onto the floor.
A few weeks ago a man walked into an Apple Store in Dijon, France, and began systematically smashing the screens of all of the iPhones using a steel ball. This week he turned up in court to see what the French justice system had to say about it.
These are the spectacular winners of the 2016 Landscape Photographer of the Year awards. Dramatic coastal views, busy city-scapes and glorious countryside vistas were all recognised by the judges, who were looking for photographs that capture the UK’s rich and diverse landscapes. A picture of a frantic storm of swallows on the Brighton seafront, taken by photographer Matthew Cattell, was crowned the overall winner. Charlie Waite, the founder of the Awards, said: “The sense of movement is palpable in Matthew’s photograph and you really feel what it would have been like to stand beside him. “The starlings seem to be swirling around the iconic remains of Brighton’s West Pier in a manner reminiscent of the tornado in the Wizard of Oz.” The Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards are held in association with VisitBritain. Winning entries will be displayed on the Balcony of London Waterloo from 21st November 2016 - 5th February 2017. The Awards book, Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 10 (AA Publishing) is available now.
Tuesday night was boys’ night for the Beckham guys and we are definitely jealous that we aren’t a part of this squad!…
Britain's Amir Khan has admitted moving up in weight to fight Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez was a mistake. The 29-year-old star has confessed he risked long-term health problems by agreeing to fight the then-middleweight champion in Las Vegas in May. Khan compared his against-the-odds mission to Kell Brook's knockout defeat to the similarly fearsome middleweight Gennady Golovkin in September.

Zayn Malik has seemingly been keeping a dignified silence since his ex-fiancee, Perrie Edwards, started dishing the dirt on their romance and break-up, but it appears as though her comments have struck a nerve behind the scenes. In fact, Zayn’s new girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, is reportedly keen to meet with the Little Mix star to tell her to stop talking about her beau. What makes it all the more awkward is that the supermodel wants Zayn to orchestrate the get-together - and we can’t imagine that he will be jumping at the chance to do that.
"A lot of the moves today in Treasuries are being led by the dramatic steepening of the bund (German bonds) and gilt (UK bonds) curve," said Subadra Rajappa, head of U.S. rates strategy at Societe Generale (Swiss: 519928.SW - news) in New York. With (Other OTC: WWTH - news) gains on the long end, the Bund yield curve has steepened to nearly 79 basis points, its widest since early March, while the spread between long-term and short-term gilts rose to 95 basis points, the highest in four months. Societe's Rajappa said the gap between long-term and short-term yields on bunds and gilts have widened on the belief that both the Bank of England and European Central Bank would hold off on further easing.
Pupils at a school in Austria were evacuated because a rock they had on display was giving off radiation. The rock turned out to be a lump of uranium, the metallic element that is used to produce atomic bombs. Alarmingly, the uranium was giving off thousands of millisiverts of radiation into the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart School in Salzburg - a lot higher than what is given off naturally.
CHICAGO (AP) — Think autism and an image of an awkward boy typically emerges. The developmental disorder is at least four times more common in boys, but scientists taking a closer look are finding some gender-based surprises: Many girls with autism have social skills that can mask the condition. And some girls are born without autism despite the same genetic mutations seen in boys with the condition.
The ESA lost contact with its Mars lander minutes before touchdown on the Mars surface. The fate of the vessel is still unknown, but recent images of the Mars surface that were taken by NASA suggest the lander exploded upon impact.
