  • England FA hit by another corruption crisis - report

    Hours after Sam Allardyce was sacked as England manager for inappropriate conduct, the Football Association was hit by a new crisis as eight current and former Premier League managers stand accused of receiving 'bungs' for player transfers after a long-running investigation by The Daily Telegraph newspaper. The British newspaper said it had agreed to hand over its findings to the FA and the police after its undercover reporters discovered "widespread evidence of corruption in the English game" by filming soccer agents boasting about how many managers they had paid off. The revelation comes 24 hours after Allardyce was shown negotiating a deal worth 400,000 pounds ($520,840) to represent a firm seeking advice on the transfer market.

  • Philippines' Duterte pivots to China, Russia as investors flee

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Monday he would seek closer economic ties with China and Russia, as the local currency and stock market extended declines following Western criticism of his deadly war on crime. The peso hit a seven-year low to the dollar on Monday and foreign investors pulled out from local shares for a 23rd straight day, which analysts said was due to growing uncertainty over Duterte's handling of what has been one of Asia's best-performing economies in recent years. "I will open trade alliances with Russia and China so all you other investors, just go.

  • Clinton, Trump take debate battle on critical state swing

    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump battled to break out of deadlocked polls after clashing in their first televised debate, lashing each other with insults on the campaign trail in critical states. An exuberant Clinton came out swinging, condemning her Republican rival as "dangerously incoherent" with an energy that suggested she was exiting perhaps the worst period of her 15-month campaign beset by blunders in belittling Trump supporters and laid up with pneumonia. The Manhattan billionaire retaliated, telling a rally of thousands of supporters in the battleground state of Florida "we're going to get rid of that crooked woman" and accusing the press of alleged bias.
