Model with autism, breast cancer survivor walk the ramp in Dubai

A norm-defying fashion show in Dubai has seen two distinct women grace the catwalk: One is a model with autism, while the other is a breast cancer survivor. Runway Dubai's recent show has brought forth Natalie Oden, a model with autism who against all odds has fought for inclusion and acceptance around the world, and Makosi, a famous TV host, ex-model and a breast cancer survivor. The UAE's vibrant fashion industry is fast becoming a melting pot of cultures as nationalities from all over the world strut on the catwalk, and Runway Dubai's 2018 show has proven how the industry...

Doughty May fights back, rubbishes counter deals

British Prime Minister Theresa May fought back on Saturday against critics of her Brexit deal, telling her Conservative opponents that their alternative plans for Britain's departure from the European Union wouldn't work. In a public relations offensive, May tried to win support in a Daily Mail interview that revealed how her husband supported her during what she admitted to be "a pretty heavy couple of days". She also laid into political opponents, saying the alternatives they favour to tackle a key stumbling block - the issue of how to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of...

All Yemeni parties agreed to attend Sweden talks, says UN

The United Nations intends to convene peace talks on Yemen soon after receiving firm assurances from the parties that they will attend negotiations in Sweden, the UN envoy said. The Saudi-backed government and the Houthi rebels have shown a "renewed commitment" to work on a political solution to end a war that has driven millions to the brink of famine, Martin Griffiths told the Security Council. "With this in mind, I intend to reconvene the parties shortly and to do so in Sweden," he said. "I believe we are close to resolving issues to make this happen." "I have received...

Last-gasp Salah strike scripts Egypt's win over Tunisia

Mohamed Salah scored in the last minute to give Egypt a 3-2 win over Tunisia in African Cup of Nations qualifying on Friday, taking the forward's tally to 10 goals in his last eight games for his country. Salah slipped through the Tunisian defence right at the end after a one-two with Salah Mohsen and finished neatly with his left foot to settle a North African derby where the teams were playing for pride more than anything else - both have already qualified for next year's Cup of Nations in Cameroon. In the other two games on Friday to start...

Dutch eye semifinal after beating France

The Netherlands have qualification for the Nations League semifinals in their sights after beating France 2-0 on Friday to hand Didier Deschamps' side their first defeat since winning the World Cup. Georginio Wijnaldum struck on the stroke of half-time and the dazzling Memphis Depay chipped home a cheeky stoppage-time penalty to bag a win in Rotterdam for Ronald Koeman's revitalised side that leaves the impressive Dutch needing just a point against relegated Germany on Monday to leapfrog France and make the semi-finals. The Dutch are a point behind leaders France, who only needed a draw themselves on Friday to qualify...

Biggar-inspired Wales thrash Tonga

Dan Biggar guided Wales to their eighth consecutive victory as a much-changed side scored 10 tries in a comprehensive 74-24 thrashing of Tonga on Saturday. Tonga battered their way back from a 24-3 deficit to draw level early in the second-half at Cardiff's Principality Stadium. But the floodgates opened as the Welsh, with a host of World Cup hopefuls playing, ran in 50 unanswered points against a flagging defence, Biggar notching up 17 points of his own. With Biggar back at fly-half after Gareth Anscombe was preferred in last week's 9-6 win over Australia, Wales got off to a rocketing...

Australia crush Italy 26-7 in autumn Test

Fijian wing Marika Koroibete scored two tries as Australia beat Italy 26-7 in Padua on Saturday to relieve the pressure on under-fire coach Michael Cheika. Koroibete crossed twice in the first half, with Taniela Tupou and Will Genia adding two more after the break to get the Wallabies back to winning ways after last weekend's defeat to Wales in Cardiff. Italy's had held out against the two-time world champions for the first half an hour in north-eastern Italy with Tito Tebaldi and Braam Steyn both having tries disallowed for the Azzurri. But Koroibete broke through after 30 minutes in the...

Second-half surge gives England 35-15 win over Japan

England overcame a shocking first half when their experimental side trailed an effervescent Japan 15-10 to turn on the power after the break and run out somewhat flattering 35-15 winners in a classic game of two halves at Twickenham on Saturday. The long-shot outsiders had threatened a repeat of their 2015 World Cup upset over South Africa when well-made tries for Ryoto Nakamura and Michael Leitch rewarded some terrific play and a dominant 40 minutes after England had struck first through scrumhalf Danny Care. Coach Eddie Jones sent on most of his big-gun replacements during the second half and, inspired...

Facebook investors want Zuckerberg to resign as chairman

Facebook investors have increased pressure on chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to step down after a New York Times investigation suggested that the social network hired a Republican-owned political consulting and PR firm that "dug up dirt on its competitors". According to a report in The Guardian on Saturday, Jonas Kron, senior vice-president at Trillium Asset Management which owns a substantial stake in Facebook, "called on Zuckerberg to step down as board chairman in the wake of the report". "Facebook is behaving like it's a special snowflake. It's not. It is a company and companies need to have a separation...

Zverev shocks Federer to reach final of ATP Finals

Alexander Zverev beat Roger Federer 7-5, 7-6 (7/5) on Saturday to reach the title decider at the ATP Finals in a match that ended in confusion and high drama. The 21-year-old German, leading the charge of the new generation against the old guard, is now just one win away from the biggest title of his career but the Swiss must wait for a tilt at his 100th tournament victory. The end of the match was overshadowed by an unusual incident, Zverev stopping a rally with Federer leading 4-3 in the second-set tie-break after a ballboy dropped a ball, forcing the...
