Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani caught in compromising position with young actress in Borat film 'gotcha'
Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and former New York mayor, has been caught in a compromising situation with a young actress while unsuspectingly being filmed for the latest Borat film. Mr Giuliani was invited to a hotel in Manhattan in July by a member of comedian and director Sacha Baron Cohen’s team posing as a Russian reporter who said she wanted to talk about the president’s coronavirus handling. The journalist, played by Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova, 24, starts off by discussing the virus and where it might have started with Mr Giuliani, 76. “Not with a bat,” Mr Giuliani says. “Have you ever eaten a bat?” he asks the reporter, who gets him to agree to try one. She tells him she is nervous, to which he replies: “I’ll relax you, you want me to ask you a question?” After they stop filming, she then invites the two-term mayor into the bedroom next door for a drink.

Coronavirus: COVID-19 will exist 'for evermore' and second wave could kill tens of thousands - SAGE scientist
Coronavirus will be around for "evermore" and is unlikely to be eradicated, a scientist advising the government on the pandemic has said. Professor John Edmunds, a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), also said the UK can expect tens of thousands of deaths from the second wave of coronavirus in what is a "bleak" situation. Britain, like other countries in Europe, is currently in the grip of a resurgence in COVID-19 infections, with much of the country under local restrictions and more than 21,000 daily cases reported on Tuesday.
