Will locals be able to watch the Tokyo olympic games?



The Tokyo Olympics Organising Committee looks set to postpone a decision on domestic spectators until June.

The news comes as the Japanese government looks set to declare a state of emergency in Tokyo due to a fourth wave of COVID-19 infections.

Gary Lineker returns to ‘Match of the Day’ duties



Alan Shearer welcomed his co-host, describing it as a “really difficult situation”

Football commentator Gary Lineker is back at the BBC following last week’s controversy surrounding his views on the U.K. government’s asylum policy.

Welcoming Lineker back, fellow host Alan Shearer said it has been a “really difficult situation for everyone concerned.”

Lineker was taken off air following a critical tweet on the government’s asylum policy.

Haas defends itself over Russia machine allegations



The team says the last time any machines were sent was in March last year

Formula One team Haas has defended itself against allegations its parent company was providing machines and parts to Russia.

The story on U.S. broadcaster PBS alleged 18 machines had been sent to Russia, from Haas, since sanctions were imposed, following the war in Ukraine.

Haas has denied the claims, saying the story is “simply false”.

The F1 team previously ended its partnership with Russian fertiliser company Nikita Mazepin in response to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Haas Automation is and has always been in full compliance with US government export control,” a statement from the motor racing team read.

“No machines have shipped from the Haas Automation factory to Russia since March 3, 2022.

“The 18 machines referenced in the story left the Haas Automation factory prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”

Haas was the most affected team from the war in Ukraine when it began in February 2022.
