  • Mourinho calls on players to act like men

    Manchester United's players must behave like men in the wake of their humiliating 4-0 Premier League hammering by Chelsea, manager Jose Mourinho said on Monday. The Portuguese coach -- who sat helplessly as he endured his worst defeat in the Premier League against the club who sacked him last term -- wants an immediate reaction against city rivals Manchester City in Wednesday's League Cup clash. Mourinho, whose side have won just once in their past six Premier League games, said he was sanguine about United's recent results and took succour from the fact they would drop points when they play each other.

  • Samsung's prestige takes another hit over lawsuit

    A South Korean law firm said Tuesday that it expected thousands more people to join a class action lawsuit seeking compensation from Samsung over its combusting Galaxy Note 7 smartphones. Seoul-based Harvest Law filed the initial suit on Monday on behalf of 527 Note 7 buyers -- demanding 500,000 won (US$440) per plaintiff for time and effort lost during a chaotic recall process that turned into a PR nightmare for the world's largest smartphone maker. Although the sums involved -- even when accumulated -- are tiny for a giant like Samsung, the lawsuit illustrates the dent the Note 7 fiasco has made in the prestige of a company used to be being treated as corporate royalty in South Korea.

Prince Mihajlo Karadjordjevic's wedding on Sunday was a somewhat lower profile event -- covered by the tabloids but largely ignored by other media, leaving some Serbians completely unaware of the first "royal" wedding in decades.
