4. #DEREK CHAUVIN: A jury is to hear closing arguments today in the trial of the white ex-police officer accused of murdering George Floyd, in a court case that laid bare racial tensions in the US and has come to be seen as a pivotal test of police accountability.

5. #ON THE DEFENSIVE: There has been intense backlash to the news that 12 of Europe’s biggest soccer clubs plan to launch a breakaway Super League, despite the threat of an international ban for them and their players from other tournaments.
