• Bad day for Guardiola, but much worse for old foe Mourinho

    Pep Guardiola may have thought it a bad day when he suffered a fifth match without a win on Sunday but it was nothing compared to the nightmare that befell his old managerial rival Jose Mourinho on an extraordinary afternoon of Premier League action. Guardiola's Manchester City went back to the top of the table on goal difference after a 1-1 draw at home to Southampton, leaving him to reflect glumly on a five-game winless streak for only the second time in his garlanded career. A couple of hours later, though, his Manchester United rival Mourinho, a general not used to humiliation, was forced to sit at a ground he once commanded and see his side ripped apart 4-0 as Chelsea produced one of the standout displays of the season at Stamford Bridge.

    Aged just 17 and still living with her family, Rina Fukushi has seen more of the world than most Japanese schoolgirls.

A girl who loves to rummage around vintage stores whenever she is travelling, she dresses for the interview in black -- mini skirt from Paris, turtleneck from Japan -- and brown handbag from Milan.

  • Hamilton cuts Rosberg's F1 lead with 50th win

    By Alan Baldwin AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Lewis Hamilton celebrated his 50th Formula One victory on Sunday with a pole-to-flag U.S. Grand Prix drive that cut Mercedes team mate Nico Rosberg's overall lead to 26 points with three races remaining. Rosberg, who had been chasing his 10th triumph of the season, finished second on a sunny Texan afternoon with a big crowd but little drama. The straightforward victory was Hamilton's fourth in five seasons in Texas and ended a barren and frustrating stretch for the triple world champion dating back to his last win in Germany in July.

  • Faded royals hold rare Serbian wedding

    At the wedding of his grandfather, King Aleksandar I of Yugoslavia, nearly a century ago, more than 100,000 people thronged Belgrade's streets in heavy rain to celebrate. 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. The 30-year-old prince married Ljubica Ljubisavljevic, a Belgrade-born pharmacist, at the Orthodox Church of St George at Oplenac in central Serbia, where members of the Karadjordjevic dynasty are buried.

  • Indonesian nationalism takes a bite out of Apple

    Apple is battling to gain a foothold in Indonesia after nationalistic regulations hit the US tech giant's efforts to compete in the booming emerging market against Samsung and other rivals. The iPhone 6S and 7 are yet to be released in Southeast Asia's largest economy as Apple struggles to fulfil requirements that phone makers must have 20 percent "local content" for 4G handsets sold in the country. South Korea's Samsung has been able to meet the demands and gain a share of the market in Indonesia -- a country of 255 million people, with an army of young consumers -- more than 25 times bigger than Apple.
