Some of the Ligue 1 leaders said they had gifted the game to City and despite his two goals, Falcao's stuttering runup before his penalty miss was singled out as the turning point. "The key moment of the match was when we failed to go 3-1 up," said Jardim of the error.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu left Singapore for Australia on Tuesday (21 February), signaling the end of a low-key visit to the Republic by one of the world’s most high-profile politicians.

The first mention of his planned visit came from Israeli media outlets, such as the Jerusalem Post, in October last year.

  • Gymnastics-Raisman keeps eye on Tokyo during 'crazy' downtime

    By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - American gymnast Aly Raisman has been caught up in a whirlwind since helping the United States to its golden haul in Rio and the triple Olympic champion is waiting for her world to stop spinning before setting her sights on the 2020 Tokyo Games. Raisman, who captained the 'Final Five' U.S. women to the most dominant Olympic victory in the team event six months ago, will be 26 when she bids for her third Olympics, hoping to defy gymnastics' stereotype as a sport built for petite teenagers. The Boston-born Raisman is in no great hurry to plunge back into competition, however, knowing a year off to freshen up could be her best chance of building motivation for another tilt at surviving the cut-throat competition to make the U.S. team.
