  • Premier League managers accused of taking kick-backs

    Eight current or former Premier League football managers were on Tuesday accused of taking kick-backs for player transfers, as part of a broader newspaper sting which led to England manager Sam Allardyce being axed. Three agents were filmed discussing corruption in football and the use of illegal "bung" payments to sign players, which the Daily Telegraph said involved eight current or former Premier League managers and two second-tier Championship bosses. Italian agent Giuseppe Pagliara said he opened Swiss bank accounts for managers and worked through intermediaries to cover the illegal payments.

  • 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.

    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.
