#SASSOLI Tributes have been paid to the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, after he passed away in hospital early this morning. The 65-year-old Italian had been seriously ill in hospital for over two weeks, and he died due to a dysfunction of his immune system.

#SWASTIKA The Catholic Church in Rome has condemned an “offensive and unacceptable” funeral procession outside a church, which saw a coffin draped in a Nazi flag and mourners gave the fascist salute.

#SOUTH AFRICA A man who is accused of setting the South African parliament on fire has faced a new charge of terrorism. Zandile Mafe, 49, appeared in a courtroom in Cape Town for a bail hearing when the charge was added.

While Djokovic has said that he remains determined to play in the Open, the threat of being deported remains as the Australian immigration minister is said to be considering cancelling his visa.
