• Ibrahimovic fires Manchester United into FA Cup quarter-finals

    (Reuters) - Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic came off the bench to score the winner as they recovered from an early deficit to beat Championship strugglers Blackburn Rovers 2-1 away in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday. It was his first goal in the FA Cup and 24th in all competitions and sent 12-times winners United into the quarter-finals where they will play at Premier League leaders Chelsea. United's passage was far from smooth, though, against the former Premier League champions who are now struggling to retain their second-tier status.

  • Workmen's cafe overwhelmed with customers after it is accidentally awarded a Michelin star

    A workmen’s café in central France was overwhelmed with gourmet customers and TV crews after it was awarded a Michelin star by mistake. Prospective diners were astounded when they turned up at Le Bouche à Oreille, in the small town of Bourges, to find a cheap and cheerful eatery with red and white polka dot tablecloths, serving a fixed price lunch menu with homemade lasagna or beef bourguignon for about €10 (£8.50). The Michelin Guide apologised, saying it had confused the café with a more refined establishment of the same name near Paris.
