  • Duterte declares upcoming Philippines-U.S. war games 'the last one'

    By Martin Petty HANOI (Reuters) - Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte plunged one of the United States' most important Asian alliances deeper into uncertainty on Wednesday by declaring upcoming U.S.-Philippines military exercises "the last," and ruling out any joint navy patrols. The firebrand Duterte pledged to honour a longstanding security treaty with the United States, but said China opposed joint marine drills in the Philippines starting next week and there would be no more war games with Washington after that. "I am serving notice now to the Americans, this will be the last military exercise," Duterte said during a visit to Vietnam.

  • Guardiola urges Man City to learn Celtic lesson

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola expressed hope his players would learn their lesson after losing their 100 percent season record in a spectacular 3-3 Champions League draw at Celtic. Aiming to equal Tottenham Hotspur's English record of 11 straight wins at the start of a season, City had to come from behind three times to earn a point in Wednesday's Group C clash in Glasgow. City reached the semi-finals under Manuel Pellegrini last season, but not for the first time, Guardiola pointed to their current shortcomings as a sign of their callowness in continental competition.

    By Fathin Ungku SINGAPORE (Reuters) - A Singapore court sentenced 17-year-old blogger Amos Yee to six weeks in jail on Thursday for "wounding religious feelings", his second prison term in a year, reigniting concerns about social controls and censorship in the conservative city-state.

  • Vardy is a "genetic freak" like Bolt, says Leicester City scientist

    By Chris Bertram MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - England striker Jamie Vardy is a "genetic freak" like nine-times Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt, Leicester City's head of sport science Kevin Paxton said. Vardy enjoys an unorthodox lifestyle in an era of increasing emphasis on marginal gains from advanced sports science, meaning his electric pace and immense stamina are largely natural.  In his autobiography, the Leicester forward revealed his unusual warm-up methods which included drinking a glass of port the night before a game while on match days he consumed several cans of a popular energy drink as well as a cup of double espresso. Such unconventional habits appeared to have helped Vardy to score 24 goals last season as Leicester won the Premier League.
