  2. All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite has played in 88 matches for West Indies across three formats West Indies cricketer Carlos Brathwaite says sportspeople taking a knee is "cosmetic" and legislative change is needed to combat racial inequality. The gesture is a symbol of support for the Black Lives Matter movement. Brathwaite told Stumped athletes doing it "showed the wider world they are aware of what's happening in society". He added: "Taking a knee in isolation or wearing a badge in isolation is not enough, it is the reprogramming and reconfiguring of the mindset." The Black Lives Matter movement has led to global protests against racism and police brutality following the death in the United States of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, while a police officer knelt on his neck. Footballers have taken a knee before matches since the resumption of the English season. England and West Indies players will wear a Black Lives Matter logo on their shirts for the forthcoming Test series. Asked if they should also take a knee, Brathwaite said: "For me it's just cosmetic - that may ruffle a few feathers. "The biggest change needs to be legislative and needs to be the reprogramming of the wider society. "Why is it that we go on a plane and see someone with a massive beard and we think, terrorist? When we see a black guy in the supermarket we automatically think he will shoplift, and as a result have the guards trail him? "That is a bigger discussion - how we reprogram our mindsets around those sorts of thoughts is a bigger discussion than just taking a knee." Brathwaite, 32, also welcomed the emergence of England seamer Jofra Archer. Barbados-born Archer bowled the crucial super-over as England beat New Zealand to win the World Cup last summer. "There's been talk in the media about the marginalisation of the black cricketer in England," said Brathwaite, who also hails from Barbados. "A black player spearheaded that charge and was there at the most important moment to execute and bring the cup home. "His success now provides a pathway for another Jofra Archer and another Jofra Archer." Brathwaite will be part of the commentary team, offering expert analysis alongside Sir Alastair Cook, as BBC Two broadcasts highlights from every Test and one-day-international this summer, starting with the three-Test series against West Indies.
  3. In Morgan’s modern era, however, in which traditional roadsters are built alongside aluminium-chassis Aero models and the 3-Wheeler, Morgan’s grunty old V8 model has been missed. The Plus 8 is bigger than a traditional Morgan roadster. It uses the same BMW-sourced V8 as the Aero coupé and Supersport, as well as the bonded and riveted aluminium chassis that has marked out Morgan’s Aero 8 and its progeny since 2001. Peak power from the 4.8-litre mill rises from 367bhp to 390bhp with our test car’s optional sports exhaust. Another interesting claim made by Morgan is that the Plus 8 is the lightest V8-powered production car to meet EU safety standards. It claims 1100kg for the car empty of fluids, whereas our test car weighed 1230kg in running order. Sifting your way through the Plus 8’s several keys during the entry and start-up routine is a little bit confusing, but at least clambering in with the roof up is not the chore that it is in a Caterham. The driving position is still snug, but of greater disappointment to us were some elements of cabin fit and finish. Some electrical wires had been left loose behind the dashboard, for example. The V8 offers character at any revs. Step-off is brisk, with a little more creep built into the automatic gearbox than feels totally intuitive. Still, there’s much to recommend the powertrain. That it automatically upshifts at the redline is a touch annoying, as is the way it slightly mismatches engine speed on downshifts, but it shifts fairly quickly and mooches around in ‘D’ agreeably. There is as much outright speed available as you’re likely to want, with good accessible torque. Although the modulation of the brake bite point can be tricky, the car brakes quite well in dry conditions; less well, it must be said, in the wet. Back to top Aero-series Morgans have disappointed us with their non-linear steering response before, and this one follows a related theme. The car’s ride is fidgety on poor surfaces and reactive over bigger inputs. The car tracks straight on the flat but it’s easily kicked off line by ruts and camber. There is inherent balance and fluidity to the car’s handling on a smooth track, but both are darned hard qualities to unearth. Verdict: Three stars If the Plus 8 didn’t overcome your objectivity so well, three stars would seem generous. It doesn’t ride and doesn’t steer and is generally not all the car it really ought to be. It retains the disarming charm to woo with its looks, noise and pace, but its dynamic failings remain hard to forgive for the outlay. We were mindful of the "aero incident" - Matt Saunders The Autocar road test team had some doubts about putting a Morgan Plus 8 through a full road test. We’d tried one on an Aero Coupé in 2011, when mechanical failure prevented it from completing our usual battery of MIRA proving ground tests. Halfway around a lap of our dry handling track, the Aero had simply died. I remember well Matt Prior’s remarkable calm (he’d been driving at the time) when he peered under the cantilevered bonnet and reported that the engine had parted company with one of its mountings, which had in turn caused most of the ancillary systems to fail instantly – and could have meant much worse than a slow, undignified stop for the pair of us. The Plus 8 did at least complete our day at MIRA, although the lap times it set show pretty plainly where its limitations as an £80,000 sports car lay. The test highlight? Former road tester Nic Cackett’s summary of the car’s aftermarket stereo, which “would regard your smartphone with the same stony-faced mystification with which a de Havilland Mosquito might contemplate a Hellfire missile.” A likeable car, but not as good as it ought to have been.
  4. Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell in New York in 2005 British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, an ex-girlfriend of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, is facing charges in the US after being arrested by the FBI. The six charges include enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts and two counts of perjury. She was reportedly arrested in New Hampshire and is due in federal court later. She has denied any involvement in or knowledge of Epstein's alleged sexual misconduct. Epstein died in prison on 10 August as he awaited, without the chance of bail, his trial on sex trafficking charges. He was arrested last year in New York following allegations that he was running a network of underage girls - some as young as 14 - for sex. His death was determined to be suicide. What are the charges? The indictment says that Maxwell "assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein's abuse minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18". She is charged with conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts; enticing a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts; conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity; and transporting a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. There are also two counts of perjury. The charge sheet says she "repeatedly lied when questioned about her conduct, including in relation to some of the minor victims". Between 1994 and 1997 Ms Maxwell was among Epstein's closest associates and was also in an "intimate relationship" with him, the indictment says. During the same period she groomed multiple minor girls to engage in sex acts with Epstein, the indictment says. She attempted to befriend them by asking about their lives and families and then she and Epstein built the friendships by taking minor victims to the cinema or shopping. Having built a rapport, Ms Maxwell would "try to normalise sexual abuse for a minor victim by... discussing sexual topics, undressing in front of the victim, being present when a minor victim was undressed, and/or being present for sex acts involving the minor victim and Epstein". What is the background? Some of Epstein's alleged victims say Ms Maxwell brought them into his circle to be sexually abused by him and his friends. One of Epstein's alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre, has accused Ms Maxwell of recruiting her as a masseuse to the financier at the age of 15. Details of that allegation against Ms Maxwell emerged in documents unsealed by a US judge last August in a 2015 defamation case, but are not part of the charges against Ms Maxwell unveiled in July 2020. Other women have also made allegations that Ms Maxwell was involved. One, Sarah Ransome, told the BBC's Panorama that Ms Maxwell "controlled the girls. She was like the Madam". Ms Maxwell has denied any wrongdoing. Earlier this year Ms Maxwell sued Epstein's estate seeking reimbursement for legal fees and security costs. She "receives regular threats to her life and safety", court documents in that case said. Who is Ghislaine Maxwell? Ms Maxwell is the daughter of late British media mogul Robert Maxwell. A well-connected socialite, she is said to have introduced Epstein to many of her wealthy and powerful friends, including Bill Clinton and the Duke of York (who was accused in the 2015 court papers of touching a woman at Jeffrey Epstein's US home, although the court subsequently struck out allegations against the duke). Buckingham Palace has said that "any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors" by the duke was "categorically untrue". Ms Maxwell has mostly been out of public view since 2016. In a BBC interview last year, the Duke of York said he had met up with Ms Maxwell last year, before Epstein was arrested and charged. However they did not discuss Epstein, he said. Last month a US prosecutor said Prince Andrew had "sought to falsely portray himself" as eager to cooperate with the inquiry into Epstein. US attorney Geoffrey Berman said Prince Andrew had "repeatedly declined our request" to schedule an interview. The duke's lawyers previously rejected claims he had not co-operated, saying he offered to help three times. Prince Andrew stepped away from royal duties last year.
  5. It’s the first car to emerge from the strategic alliance and gives an indication of how the two firms will seek to differentiate their own versions of shared models. The Across bears a strong resemblance to the RAV4 but is set apart by an all-new front end that features Suzuki’s large trademark grille. The differences between the two cars’ cabins are more subtle, with the Across having a largely identical-looking interior save for a new steering wheel. The RAV4’s 9.0in touchscreen display features as standard and offers smartphone mirroring functionality. The SUV’s electrified powertrain is carried over wholesale from the new RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid and comprises a 173bhp 2.5-litre petrol four-cylinder mated to a pair of electric motors - one with 180bhp on the front axle and another with 54bhp at the rear - for a top speed of 112mph. Combined power output is unconfirmed, but in the RAV4, this system produces 302bhp, making it the most powerful RAV4 yet, and Toyota’s quickest alternatively fuelled model. The Across emits 22g/km of CO2 on the WLTP combined cycle, compared with the RAV4 PHEV’s 29g/km, so it’s likely to use a detuned variant of the powertrain. Four driving modes feature: EV mode for pure-electric driving; Auto EV/HV and HV mode, which allows the petrol motor to provide occasional power boosts; and battery charger mode, which uses the petrol motor exclusively. The SUV’s 18.1kWh battery allows it to travel 46 miles on electric power alone and it’s expected to be able to reach speeds of up to 84mph in this mode, like the RAV4. An electronic four-wheel drive system, called E-Four, is as standard and can split torque between the two axles in ratios ranging in bias from 100:0 to 20:80. Suzuki says this provides “enhanced stability during take-off on slippery surfaces such as snow-covered roads, and confident handling when cornering on varying road surfaces”. The Across is also equipped with a Trail mode function that maximises grip on slippery surfaces by diverting power away from wheels that are losing grip towards wheels that have good traction. Safety features include a pre-collision system, lane-keep assist, road sign assist, dynamic cruise control and blindspot monitoring. Suzuki’s eCall system is fitted as well, automatically alerting the emergency services in the event of an accident. Additional features detailed so far include standard-fitment LED headlights and daytime-running lights and 19in two-tone alloy wheels. When the Across goes on sale in the UK and Europe in autumn, it will be available in six colours: white, silver, black, red, grey and blue. Prices are yet to be confirmed for either model.

  6. Novak Djokovic tested positive for the coronavirus on Tuesday after taking part in a tennis exhibition series he organised in Serbia and Croatia. The World No 1 ranked Serb is the fourth player to test positive for the virus after first playing in Belgrade and then again last weekend in Zadar. His wife also tested positive. "The moment we arrived in Belgrade we went to be tested. My result is positive, just as Jelena’s, while the results of our children are negative," Djokovic said in a statement. Djokovic has been criticized for organising the tournament and bringing in players from other countries amid the coronavirus pandemic. There were no social distancing measures observed at the matches in either country. Fellow Serb Viktor Troicki said earlier on Tuesday that he and his pregnant wife had both been diagnosed with the virus. Current world No 19 Grigor Dimitrov, a three-time Grand Slam semifinalist from Bulgaria, said on Sunday he had tested positive. The fourth player diagnosed with COVID-19 was Borna Coric (ranked 33rd), who played Dimitrov on Saturday in Zadar. Djokovic was the face behind the Adria Tour, a series of exhibition events that started in the Serbian capital and then moved to Zadar. He left Croatia after the final was cancelled and he was tested in Belgrade. He said he will remain in self-isolation for 14 days and also apologised to anyone who became infected as a result of the series. The tennis star defended his reasons for holding last week's tournament, despite the subsequent coronavirus outbreak. "Everything we did in the past month, we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. Our tournament meant to unite and share a message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region", his statement said. Djokovic added that it was aimed at helping up and coming players from southeastern Europe deprived of competitive play during the pandemic. "It was all born with a philanthropic idea, to direct all raised funds towards people in need and it warmed my heart to see how everybody strongly responded to this. "We organised the tournament at the moment when the virus has weakened, believing that the conditions for hosting the Tour had been met," Djokovic said. "Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with."
  7. Many residents worry the new law means the end of the "one country, two systems" principle Hong Kong police have made their first arrests under a new "anti-protest" law imposed by Beijing, as crowds marked 23 years since the end of British rule. Nine people were held accused of violating the law, including a man with a pro-independence flag. More than 300 others were detained at a banned rally. The national security law targets secession, subversion and terrorism with punishments up to life in prison. Activists say it erodes freedoms but China has dismissed the criticism. Hong Kong's sovereignty was handed back to China by Britain in 1997 and certain rights were supposed to be guaranteed for at least 50 years under the "one country, two systems" agreement. The UK has now said up to three million Hong Kong residents will be offered the chance to settle in the UK and ultimately apply for citizenship. On Wednesday, thousands gathered for the annual pro-democracy rally to mark the handover anniversary, defying a ban by authorities who cited restrictions on gatherings of more than 50 people because of Covid-19. Police used water cannon, tear gas and pepper spray on demonstrators. They said more than 300 people had been arrested, nine under the new law, which was adopted in the wake of last year's widespread unrest. They included a man who was holding a "Hong Kong Independence" flag, though some Twitter users said the picture appeared to show a small "no to" written in front of the slogan. The man has not been identified, and it was not clear whether he would be prosecuted. Police also said an officer was stabbed in the arm by "rioters holding sharp objects". The suspects fled and bystanders offered no help, they said. The legislation has been widely condemned by countries including the US and UK as well as human rights activists. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: "[China] promised 50 years of freedom to the Hong Kong people, and gave them only 23." In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian urged countries to look at the situation objectively and said China would not allow foreign interference in its domestic affairs. Earlier, Zhang Xiaming of the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs office of the State Council bristled at foreign critics, asking them: "What's this got to do with you?" Speaking in the House of Commons, UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called the measures a "flagrant assault" on freedoms of speech and protest, saying China had "broken" its international obligations. Meanwhile, the UK has updated its travel advice on Hong Kong, saying there is an "increased risk of detention, and deportation for a non-permanent resident" due to the new law. What does the new law say? Crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces are punishable by a minimum sentence of three years, with the maximum being life. The controversial law also says: Damaging public transport facilities - which often happened during the 2019 protests - can be considered terrorism Beijing will establish a new security office in Hong Kong, with its own law enforcement personnel - neither of which would come under the local authority's jurisdiction Inciting hatred of China's central government and Hong Kong's regional government are now offences under Article 29 The law can also be broken from abroad by non-residents under Article 38, and this could mean that foreigners could be arrested on arrival in Hong Kong if they are suspected of breaking the new law Some trials will be heard behind closed doors Beijing will also have power over how the law should be interpreted, and not any Hong Kong judicial or policy body. If the law conflicts with any Hong Kong law, the Beijing law takes priority. Mr Zhang said the law would not be applied retroactively - that is, to offences committed before it was passed - and that suspects arrested in Hong Kong on charges of violating the law may be tried on the mainland. Chief Executive Carrie Lam, Hong Kong's pro-Beijing leader, said the law would "restore stability" and that it was "considered the most important development in relations between the central government and Hong Kong since the handover". What is happening on the anniversary? Demonstrators in the Causeway Bay district chanted "resist till the end" and "Hong Kong independence" amid warnings that certain slogans and banners might now constitute serious crimes. Photos on social media - confirmed by police as genuine - showed a flag being used by officers to warn protesters about the new law. Police are carrying this banner warning protesters about the new law "I'm scared of going to jail but for justice I have to come out today, I have to stand up," a 35-year-old man who gave his name as Seth told Reuters news agency. Ahead of the protest, pro-democracy activist Tsang Kin-shing, of the League of Social Democrats, warned there was a "large chance of our being arrested", saying: "The charges will not be light, please judge for yourself." The law gives Beijing extensive powers to shape life in the territory that it has never had before. It not only introduces a series of tough punishments for a long list of crimes, it changes the way justice is administered. Trials can be held in secret - and without a jury. Judges can be handpicked. The law reverses a presumption that suspects will be granted bail. There appears to be no time limit on how long people can be held. Crimes are described in vague terms, leading to the possibility of broad interpretation, and the right to interpret lies only in Beijing. Foreign nationals outside of Hong Kong face prosecution. Most cases will be handled in Hong Kong, but the mainland can take over "complex", "serious" or "difficult" cases. Whether or not you think the legislation was necessary, it is impossible to deny its significance. As Hong Kong's leader Carrie Lam put it: this is a turning point. What reaction has the new law drawn? Minutes after the law was passed on Tuesday, pro-democracy activists began to quit, fearful of the punishment the new law allows. "With sweeping powers and ill-defined law, the city will turn into a secret police state," said Joshua Wong, a key pro-democracy leader. The political party he co-founded - Demosisto - was disbanded. Ted Hui, an opposition legislator, told the BBC: "Our freedom is gone, our rule of law, our judicial independence is gone". Ai Weiwei: "Today is the darkest day for Hong Kong" Mr Pompeo said the "draconian" law "destroyed Hong Kong's autonomy", adding: "Beijing's paranoia and fear of its own people's aspirations have led it to eviscerate the very foundation of the territory's success." The EU expressed "grave concerns" that the law could "seriously undermine" the city's independence. In the US, lawmakers from both parties have launched a bill to give refugee status to Hong Kong residents at risk of persecution, reported local media outlets. Taiwan's government has said it will set up a special office to help those in Hong Kong facing immediate political risks.
