• Leicester City have Britain's bookmakers on run

    Leicester City, 5,000/1 no-hopers before the season started, will be responsible for an "unprecedented" £15 million ($22 million, 19 million euros) pay-out by Britain's bookmakers if they win the Premier League title, according to an industry insider. The Foxes need just three points from their remaining three league games this season to be crowned champions of England for the first time in their history and the Midlands club will take the title if they win at football giants Manchester United's Old Trafford ground on Sunday. "We are looking at a £3 million pay-out and the industry as a whole £15 million," Joe Crilly, of leading British betting firm William Hill, told AFP on Friday.

  • Snooker player Fu ignores cue crisis to level semi-final

    Hong Kong's Marco Fu lost his cue tip but held his nerve to level his World Snooker Championship semi-final against Mark Selby at 8-8 on Friday. While chalking his cue and glancing at the table mid-break, Fu nudged the tip off and joined the Crucible crowd in shock as the world number 14 realised what had happened. Television analysts Stephen Hendry and Steve Davis were equally surprised and suggested the incident could upset the 38-year-old's progress in the best-of-33 frames encounter as he chased a first appearance in the final.

  • Lego admits 'mistake' in Ai Weiwei bricks row

    Lego billionaire Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen has admitted that the Danish toymaker's refusal to sell bricks to dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei was a "mistake". The company found itself at the centre of a social media storm last year after Ai said Lego had refused his order of the famous children's building blocks as they would be "used for political works". Lego's deputy chairman, the grandson of the company's founder, said the decision to deny the artist a bulk order had been due to "an internal mistake." The order, which Ai planned to use for a show in Australia, had been rejected "very low in the organisation by our consumer service department," Kirk Kristiansen told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published Thursday.
