  The Belgian bagged a brace to continue his superb start to the season, but suffered a pratfall in his attempts to commemorate the moment Romelu Lukaku has vowed to retire his knee-slide celebration after the Chelsea striker took an ungracious tumble during the Blues' victory over Aston Villa on Saturday. The Belgian bagged a brace to continue his superb start to his second life at Stamford Bridge, keeping Thomas Tuchel's side firmly in the mix near the Premier League summit. But the striker's attempt to commemorate his first goal was scuppered when his attempted knee slide fell short, leaving him in a comical heap - and the forward has now stated he will not repeat the feat.

Transgender Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard announces her Retirement after Making history 

Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has announced she will retire after making Olympics history as the first openly transgender woman to compete in the Games. The 43-year-old, who transitioned in 2012, competed in the 87kg+ category but failed to record a single valid 'snatch' lift in Tokyo. She crashed out of the Olympics after making history as the first trans woman to compete in a solo event. She overbalanced on her opening weight of 120kg, taking the bar behind her shoulders. Hubbard's second effort of 125kg was ruled invalid on a majority decision by the referees. The third attempt was almost a repeat of the first, ruling Hubbard out of medal contention. Her participation also sparked a firestorm of debate about transgender participation in women’s sport. The 'intens...

Desperation Will Make Senators, Reps Repeat Saraki’s Stunt — Abdulmumin Jibrin

Jubrin Abdulmumin, a member of the House of Representatives from Kano State, has expressed fears that high level lobbying already going on among elected senators and House of Representatives members over leadership positions in the 9th legislature may result in similar circumstances that saw Bukola Saraki and Yakubu Dogara clinching the positions in the 8th NASS. According to the former chairman of Appropriations Committee, who was once suspended by the House, what lawmakers should be looking out for ahead of the inauguration of the ninth Assembly should be leaders who are ready to commit to electronic system or reforms in the National Assembly, such that when lawmakers are voting on any bill, the constituencies where they come from will be visible.
