  • Sweden wins Eurovision Song Contest while Russia is booed

    Sweden beat Russia to win the 60th Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday, in an event described by organizers as beyond politics but marred by boos for the Russian that were apparently prompted by the Ukraine conflict and the Kremlin's anti-gay policies. Italy took third in Europe's iconic songfest, which this year carried the extra attraction of an entry by Australia. The race between Russian star Polina Gagarina and Sweden's Mans Zelmerlow went back and forth for most of the balloting as jurors from 40 countries voted along a worldwide audience submitting their preference by phone and app.

  • Hamilton Sets The Pace In Monaco Practice

    Lewis Hamilton has set the pace in the opening practice for the Monaco GP, with Mercedes teammate and rival Nico Rosberg down in ninth place. The German clipped the barriers in the opening minutes of the session and ended up with a fastest lap over a second slower than Hamilton's best, a 1:18.750. With Rosberg rejoining on a fresh set of soft tyres ahead of everyone else, the suspicion is that he therefore wasn't able to make use of them when the track conditions were at their best.

  • As migration soars, UK's Cameron sets red line in EU talks

    Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday that restricting welfare payments to EU workers was an "absolute requirement" of his efforts to renegotiate Britain's relationship with the bloc, as he unveiled a new crackdown on immigration.
