One of the trio first showed symptoms earlier this week and was immediately self-isolated, according to the Telegraph. But after appearing to improve, he is said to have relapsed since. The club’s game this weekend will certainly be called off if the results come back positive. But the news puts even greater pressure on English football authorities to suspend all matches in line with their European counterparts. It seems almost inevitable games will be cancelled or postponed once a player case is confirmed but Premier League chiefs are yet to act.Advertisement Loading… Three Premier League stars have shown symptoms of coronavirus, according to reports. Some Premier League clubs are said to be hopeful the government intervenes today so the League’s hand is forced. The next step in combating the spread of the bug is to play games behind closed doors. But there is a growing belief among Prem teams that English football is falling behind the rest of Europe in halting the outbreak. Players are also said to be concerned by the rapid spread with many unwilling to play on in current conditions. Last night, it was confirmed Juventus star Daniele Rugani has got the disease and has been quarantined.

Palace: No military control of Luzon

The PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group onFriday charged four persons with spreading false reports and information amidthe coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. Policemen are seen at a checkpoint on the border between Quezon city and Manila on 18 March, 2020, as the Philippines imposed measures to curb the spread of COVID-19. AFP The Philippine National Police’sCriminal Investigation and Detection Group and Anti-Cybercrime Group, alongwith the National Bureau of Investigation, are now intensifying operationsagainst purveyors of fake news, added Nograles. “Anggusto nga natin, madaliin na ito. Gusto natin mapabilis na ito pero kailanganang cooperation,” he added. He branded the reports as “fake news.” President Duterte on March signedRepublic Act (RA) 11469 or the Bayanihan to Heal As One Act, which grants himspecial powers to solve the outbreak. Nograles also said all officialannouncements would only come from President Rodrigo Duterte, the Department ofHealth, and the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of EmergingInfectious Diseases (IATF-EID). The quarantine ends on April 12. One of the provisions included in RA11469 imposes a two-month jail sentence or a fine of up to P1 million against personswho spread false information related to COVID-19./PNlast_img read more

Samba keen to forget Fulham nightmare

first_img Press Association He continued: “Giving away 2 more tickets with players lounge as a sorry for yesterday game, just retweet to enter, meet u also in person and hand u my shirt. “Just to say I am human and like any others words can be upsetting, the money comments and performance tweets I can deal with to a degree.” Samba also hit out at the racism he suffered last night after a user called him “negro” on the social network. “As for the racist abuse I receive last nite I did not deserve at all, called it a early day today to be called a negro for a game of football,” he said via his verified account @cs4christsamba1. “2013 kick racism out of football, retweet if you are against it thank you, no matter what race sex or nationality STOP RACISM OUT OF FOOTBALL.” Samba was not alone in taking to Twitter after QPR’s latest defeat, with forward Jay Bothroyd left “absolutely gutted” by the result that leaves QPR seven points adrift of safety. Only seven matches remain but Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes remains convinced that Harry Redknapp can steer the west Londoners to safety. “Shocking first half,” he said via Twitter account. “No more breaks. Game every week. Its still in our hands. 7 games 21 points. Feeling calm and still optimistic. Keep the faith whatever happens.” That view, though, is not shared by former Rs captain Joey Barton. The 30-year-old is on a season-long loan at French giants Marseille and believes his parent club are destined for the drop. He said: “Realistically that’s it. Too much to do for QPR. Had enough chances to get something tonight. Can’t give 3 goal head starts at this level Feel its unfair to blame board, they’ve backed the managers.” Christopher Samba wants to start afresh and move on from Monday night’s miserable performance in QPR’s west London derby defeat at Fulham.center_img The 29-year-old endured a torrid time at Craven Cottage, gifting the hosts the two opening goals in what ended up as a 3-2 defeat. Only the greatest of escapes will now save QPR from the drop and their latest loss saw Samba, who arrived for a reported £12.5million in January, come under intense scrutiny. The centre-back took to Twitter immediately after the game to apologise for letting the side down, before biting back at those questioning his value. Returning to the social media site on Tuesday, Samba said: “Good morning to all, hope u (sic) all ok and start to day with a fresh mind set move on from what happen yesterday only way to over come the past.” last_img read more

McIlroy sorry after club rage

first_img McIlroy had just recorded his third birdie of the day to get back to level par for the tournament when he pulled his approach to the par-five eighth – a hole he had eagled on Thursday – into the water. And after a few seconds’ thought the 25-year-old then hurled the offending club into the same stretch of water on his way to recording a six, his third bogey of the day. World number one Rory McIlroy apologised for throwing his three iron into a water hazard after more erratic play in the second round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Friday. McIlroy recovered to card a round of 70 to lie one under par. “Frustration got the better of me,” he told Sky Sports. “Following on from last week I feel like it’s very close and to hit shots like that you get frustrated, but I shouldn’t have did what I did. “It all bottled up and had to let it go somehow and that’s what happened. I don’t feel good about doing it but I will hopefully have a new three iron on the way in the morning and be able to got out and play with another one. “I wouldn’t encourage kids at home to do the same thing.” It is not the first time McIlroy’s frustrations have got the better of him. At the US Open in 2013 he apologised for throwing one club and leaning so hard on another during the final round that he bent the shaft out of shape. And that came just months after he walked off the course midway through the second round of the Honda Classic, where he was defending champion, telling reporters he was in “a bad place mentally” before his management company issued a statement blaming toothache. McIlroy missed the cut in the Honda Classic last week and struggled to an opening 73 at Doral, but looked to be getting back on track when he began his second round with two straight birdies. However, the four-time major winner then bogeyed the third after driving into the water and three-putted the fourth before the frustrations of the course known as the ‘Blue Monster’ truly took their toll on the eighth. McIlroy added on Sky Sports 4: ” You can see I’m aiming left to try and cut it and it’s been frustrating this week because the shots I want to cut I draw, and the shots I want to draw I cut. I’m just not quite there with the swing the way I want to and another ball in the water wasn’t good. “(I have) another couple of rounds just to try and find a little bit of rhythm. I’m a little behind at the minute but it seems like the scores are quite spread out so if I can get off to a decent start tomorrow you never know.” Despite all the drama McIlroy ended up moving closer to the lead, with American JB Holmes finding water four times and running up a double bogey on the 18th to add a 73 to his opening 62. That left Holmes on nine under par, two shots ahead of compatriot Ryan Moore with former Masters champion Adam Scott a shot behind after a 68. The Australian is making his first start of the season after an extended break due to the birth of his first child, but also made light of switching to a short putter ahead of the ban on anchored strokes which comes into effect in 2016. “I’ve been playing a lot of golf at home with friends and family, thinking about it a lot and trying to come out better than I left last year. I’ve been working hard on a few things and managed to take it from the range to the course this week so far. “I putted well in the past with a short one, but felt I was very streaky. I had hot rounds and really poor rounds with the putter and the long putter just got me some consistency, taught me a few fundamentals I think for putting and I’ve managed to adapt that with the short one. “I had all that time at home to fiddle around and get comfortable with it so I thought I may as well make the adjustment now rather than stress at the end of this year.” McIlroy’s playing partners Bubba Watson and Henrik Stenson were both five off the lead on four under, Watson carding a 69 which featured no birdies, two eagles and one bogey.

Angels option slumping Justin Bour, will recall Jared Walsh to take his spot

first_img Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Once Ohtani came back last week, though, the chance for playing time shrunk. Pujols, who has been hitting better lately, is expected to play most of the time at first, leaving Bour on the bench.“It’s going to be hard to get him at-bats at the big-league level because obviously, the goal here is to win,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. “Going down isn’t punishment. It’s more that we want to get him at-bats to get himself right to come back and help us.”Bour said the chance to get regular at-bats at Salt Lake “can help. I have to figure some stuff out and get back.”Bour said he didn’t think he needed a mental break.“Mentally, I think I’m OK,” he said. “I think I’ve come every day with a positive mindset and do what I can to help the team. Production-wise, it hasn’t been there.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img MINNEAPOLIS — Justin Bour’s slow start finally resulted in him getting sent down to Triple-A.The Angels optioned Bour and his .163 batting average after Tuesday night’s 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins. They are expected to recall two-way player Jared Walsh to take Bour’s spot on the roster on Wednesday.“I can’t really say it’s coming to any kind of surprise,” Bour said. “The beginning of the season really hasn’t clicked for me like I know I’m capable of doing. There are two ways to look at it. I look at it as an opportunity to go down and figure some stuff out and get back as soon as possible.”Bour, 30, signed a $2.5 million deal with the Angels over the winter. They had hoped he could fill some of the gaps at first base while Albert Pujols was at designated hitter, prior to Shohei Ohtani’s return. Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Aside from his lack of production, Bour has had at least three embarrassing mental gaffes. After he’d been called safe at second, he left the base believing he’d been tagged out. He failed to run out of the box on a pop-up, allowing the Seattle Mariners to let the ball drop and turn a double play. He also was unaware of the Angels’ defensive positioning, so he stopped pursuing a ground ball that ended up rolling through the uncovered right side of the infield in Kansas City.Bour’s departure opens the door for Walsh to make his major league debut.A first baseman, outfielder and left-handed pitcher, Walsh was hitting .302 with 10 homers and a 1.002 OPS at Salt Lake. Walsh can play first when Pujols needs a day off, and he can also fill in in the outfield.Walsh has also pitched five innings so far this season at Triple-A, allowing two runs. He would be the Angels’ only left-handed reliever.last_img read more
