The summery treats will cost £3 for a pack of six and it will be the first time shoppers have been able to get their hands on them since the 00s.

The ice creams were spotted on the NewFoodsUK Facebook page, where a post read: “Funny Feet Ice Cream Sticks are back and are exclusive to Iceland! These will be officially out next week, but have been spotted in store already!”

Excited shoppers were quick to reminisce about the summer lollies, one said: “Yes! I used to get this when I was wee from the ice cream van. This or a green frog ice lolly thing. Loved a funny feet!”

Lewis Hamilton honest about Red Bull Bahrain edge as Mercedes star delighted for McLaren

Lewis Hamilton admits Red Bull are ahead of Mercedes after day one of the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend and says it is “great” to see McLaren so close to the front of the field.
The first race of the season gets underway in the desert this Sunday and the first two practice sessions of the 2021 season took place on Friday.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen topped the timesheets in both FP1 and FP2, while McLaren’s Lando Norris was second in the evening session after third in the first.

Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas went second quickest in the first session but was down in fifth under the lights, while Hamilton went fourth and third.

The Briton found himself 0.235s back on pace-setter Verstappen in the second to fuel hopes that Red Bull can truly take the championship fight to world champions Mercedes this year.

The Dutchman was also quickest in pre-season testing at the same circuit, when Mercedes endured a litany of problems.

But Hamilton is confident that the Brackley-based outfit, winners of the last seven straight Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships, are making progress.

However the seven-time world champion admits Red Bull have the early edge going into FP3 and qualifying on Saturday, and insists he’s delighted to see former team McLaren – without a title since Hamilton’s 2008 triumph – enjoying such fine pace.

Speaking to Sky Sports F1, Hamilton said: “We thought Red Bull would be as fast as they are if not faster. We know they’re leading at the moment.

“McLaren are looking great and it’s great to see them taking a step. It’ll be interesting to see how the long runs are.

On Mercedes’ struggles, the 36-year-old continued: “I definitely do [feel like we’ve taken steps forward]. Coming into this weekend we’d done a lot of work over the past week.

“I think we have taken a step forward but we still have more to do. With tyres and downforce reduced, the global balance has just shifted and it wasn’t where we wanted.

“This weekend it’s looking better but it’s still not perfect. We’re working as hard as we can. We’ve got great people working in the background.

“I know that we still have a hill to climb but we’re staying positive.

“And these tyres, the performance we’ve lost doesn’t help. We’ll work away at night and try and find a way.”

Red Bull’s Verstappen meanwhile reflected: “Of course different conditions again compared to testing. It’s been alright. Good feeling in the car.

“Of course there’s still things to look into, tyre-wise as well, and a bit of balance tuning. Overall I’m pretty happy.

“Still tomorrow is again a different day. Even more windy, which with these cars is quite tricky. We’ll have to try and be on it. But a good start to the weekend.”

Asked if McLaren could be greater challengers to Red Bull than Mercedes, the Dutchman added: “I don’t think so. I still expect Mercedes to be the strongest Mercedes-powered car.”

James Bond actor: Would Sam Heughan play 007? ‘Delighted’

Sam said of this meeting: “I met Barbara Broccoli and [Casino Royale director] Martin Campbell. I did a scene and they had the gun from The Man with the Golden Gun on the table and I remember thinking, ‘Wow, this is incredible’.

“It was surreal. He’s a character we’ve all grown up with.

“I don’t think any actor would ever say no. If I was asked to audition for it, I would be delighted.”

In a new interview this week with Esquire, Sam even took the time to mention James Bond in relation to his new movie, SAS: Red Notice, meaning it may be he has hopes for the role being sent his way.

He said, when talking about his character who might be considered a psychopath: “If they need to be charming, like maybe James Bond, you know, he could be more charming.

'Explosive' – Roger Federer delighted with two key elements on successful injury return

Roger Federer made his tennis return after more than a year out injured yesterday in beating Dan Evans at the Qatar Open. It took the Swiss three sets to get the job done but he eventually won 7-6 (8), 3-6, 7-5.
Federer will play his quarter-final against Nikoloz Basilashvili this afternoon at around 3pm GMT.

After two operations on his right knee it was not known how well the 39-year-old would recover after such a long lay off.

Federer was happy with his return though and despite still in some pain was happy with his condition.

“I was really explosive, actually,” Federer said.

In a match that lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours, Federer was able to prove his fitness and really test his knee.

The fact he didn’t double fault once and didn’t need any pain relief after the contest was another indicator of his conditioning.

“I was very happy with how I was able to handle the tough moments,” he added.

“I didn’t feel like my game started to wobble the more important the points got.

“I think I was able to play how I wanted to play, so I think that’s always a great sign and a great feeling to have.

“In practice, it doesn’t matter if you miss a backhand down the line, being down break point.
