Subjectivist suffers season-ending injury

Subjectivist suffers season-ending injury

Gold Cup hero Subjectivist is out for the season after suffering a leg injury.

The Mark Johnson-trained four-year-old gave a top-drawer performance to win in brilliant fashion at Royal Ascot, by five lengths from Princess Zoe – with three-time victor Stradivarius only fourth.

He was expected to renew rivalry with the latter in the Al Shaqab Goodwood Cup later this month.

It is possible Subjectivist could be ready in time to defend his crown at Royal Ascot next summer but, as a potential stallion, time could be called on his racing career.

Johnston said: “He’s got an injury and it’s certainly season-ending.

“There was no secret that the horse had filling in his left foreleg in Dubai straight after the race (Dubai Gold Cup) and we got a hell of a fright from that. Visually, that was a career-ending injury.

“Within 24 hours he’d got a reasonably clean bill of health and within a month he’d got a complete clean bill of health, which was very unusual for that type of situation. Everything went perfectly well and there were no issues going into the Ascot Gold Cup or afterwards.

Latest Racing Stories

“But on Monday he had filling in the opposite leg. Because the left foreleg had been so atypical and he’d come back from that, we hoped it would be the same with the other leg, but it didn’t.

“It’s absolutely heartbreaking. The only positive we can take from it is that at least he did get the opportunity to show us what he could do.

“Those of us that were there in Dubai thought that was a phenomenal performance and at least it was confirmed in what I like to think was one of the best Ascot Gold Cups in recent days.

“I don’t know (if he’ll run again).”

Man, 65, suffers horror toilet trip after 5ft python emerges to ‘pinch’ his genitals

Man, 65, suffers horror toilet trip after 5ft python emerges to 'pinch' his genitals

The 65-year-old Austrian shared how he bolted off of the seat after he felt a “pinch”. Turning around, he discovered the 5ft albino python in his toilet bowl.

He was taken to hospital for “minor injuries” and medics also checked for an infection.

The man, from Graz, suffered the bite below the belt at 6am local time on Monday.

After calling the emergency services, a local reptile expert arrived at his apartment and removed the snake.

Officers said the snake owner had been referred to prosecutors for negligent bodily harm. It is unclear if he will be charged

Mr Stangl said he had never been called out to anything like this in 40 years of working with reptiles.

Albino reticulated pythons are the world’s largest snakes, but do not attack humans by nature.

However, they will constrict or bite if they feel threatened or if they mistake something for food.

Murray vs Basilashvili LIVE: Murray suffers third-set collapse as Basilashvili fights back

Murray vs Basilashvili LIVE: Murray suffers third-set collapse as Basilashvili fights back

SET 4

Andy Murray 2-1 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

MURRAY BREAKS AGAIN! Murray breaks to love as the Scot battles back once again. He must be wishing he doesn’t have to serve at all, because he’s a different player on his opponent’s serve.

Andy Murray* 1-1 Nikoloz Basilashvili

BASILASHVILI BREAKS BACK! It’s going to be one of those nights! The Georgian powers his way back into the set and closes out the game with a sublime shot down the sideline to level the set at one game apiece.

Andy Murray 1-0 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

MURRAY BREAKS STRAIGHT AWAY! If only he’d done this earlier! Murray breaks Basilashvili to love to steal a march on his opponent in the very first game of the fourth set. Now comes a crucial moment. Basilashvili has broken each of Murray’s last FOUR service games. Can Murray hold here and put himself in the driving seat?

The Centre Court roof is currently being closed, after which the players will return and resume the match. Murray will be hoping the rest does him good. He looked totally spent in those final games of the third set. As for Basilashvili, he’ll be absolutely itching to get back out there and take the fight to the tiring Scot.

Set 4 updates will follow.

SET 3

Nikoloz Basilashvili takes the third set!

Andy Murray* 5-7 Nikoloz Basilashvili

BASILASHVILI BREAKS MURRAY AGAIN! Murray’s serve struggles continued, but he dug out a cracker to save set point and keep things alive in this set. But the Scot’s power bar is starting to dip into the red here. He looks absolutely shattered and, after a tense final rally at the net, Basilashvili prevailed to break Murray again and claim the set.

Andy Murray 5-6 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

That’s six games in a row for Basilashvili, who now knows that if he can break Murray again (he’s done three times already in this set) he’s back in this match. Murray’s starting to look tired, too. This is absolutely huge. Can Murray hold serve?

Andy Murray* 5-5 Nikoloz Basilashvili

BASILASHVILI BREAKS AGAIN! Well, this is incredible. Nikoloz Basilashvili was 5-0 down in this set. It’s now 5-5!

Andy Murray 5-4 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

That was a ballsy game from Basilashvili. A huge forehand error gifted Murray two match points, but the Georgian saved both, then closed out the game with an ace as he put himself in with a shot of survival in the set. Murray will serve for the match, once again. Will the third time be the charm?

Andy Murray* 5-3 Nikoloz Basilashvili

BASILASHVILI BREAKS! “I thought this match was supposed to be over!” exclaims Andrew Castle on commentary as Basilashvili breaks Murray again. It all looked like plain sailing for the Scot, but winning that final game is proving to be a tricky test.

Andy Murray 5-2 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

Don’t call it a comeback, but Basilashvili grabs another game as he holds serve to make the set look a little bit more respectable. Murray will serve for the match once again.

Andy Murray* 5-1 Nikoloz Basilashvili

BASILASHVILI BREAKS! Basilashvili’s desperate attempt to stay in the match sees him earn two break points. Murray saves the first with a serve and volley, but finds the net for the second and the Georgian grabs a foothold in the set. He needs a Murray collapse here, but he’s still in there – just.

Andy Murray 5-0 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

He’s fist-pumping, he’s hitting passing shots, he’s landing drop-shots with ease. Andy Murray is living his best life on Centre Court right now. The third set hasn’t been competitive as he has blown Basilashvili away. Now he’s about to serve for a straight-sets win and a place in the second round.

Andy Murray* 4-0 Nikoloz Basilashvili

“He’s tapped out,” says tennis legend John McEnroe on BBC commentary as Murray surges into a 4-0 lead and moves one step closer to a quite brilliant win. The Georgian is trying to blast his way back into rallies, but has lost the control and touch in his shots, and a drop-shot attempt falls apologetically into the net to put Murray in cruise control. 

Andy Murray 3-0 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

MURRAY BREAKS AGAIN! If this match was closely contested at the start, Murray has well and truly broken his opponent mentally now. He’s showing flashes of his old form, and is looking cool, calm and collected as he surges into a big lead. A straight-sets victory is there for the taking.

Andy Murray* 2-0 Nikoloz Basilashvili

He had to work hard for it, but Murray holds his serve to move to 2-0 up in the third set. He’s looking in fine fettle, while Basilashvili is starting to look a little demoralised.

Andy Murray 1-0 Nikoloz Basilashvili*

MURRAY BREAKS! What a start to the third set for Murray! The Scot earns three break points, but only needs one as he breaks Basilashvili to love to score a huge break at the start of the set. Is this a sign of the Georgian’s resolve breaking? Regardless, it’s exactly what the Wimbledon crowd were hoping for.

Joe Biden suffers awkward blunder as he almost calls Putin 'President TRUMP'

Joe Biden suffers awkward blunder as he almost calls Putin 'President TRUMP'

The US President – nicknamed “Sloppy Joe” by rivals for his frequent gaffes – made his latest blunder after holding his face-to-face talks with the Russian President in Geneva earlier today. Nuclear stability, cybersecurity and possible prisoner exchanges were on the agenda as the men sat down for their first meeting in person.

Both sides played down the possibility of major concessions beforehand and it appeared the talks were aimed at thawing frosty relations between the two countries.

Things appeared to be going well for the US leader until his glaring blunder in the post-meeting press conference.

When asked about ongoing disputes in the Arctic between the two countries, Mr Biden said: “I caught part of President Trum… Putin’s press conference and he talked about the need for us to have some sort of modus operandi we dealt with where the arctic was in fact a free zone.”

The 78-year-old American President has been accused of going senile previously – a claim that he vehemently denies.

The pair were photographed shaking hands earlier today in an effort to mend badly frayed ties.

Mr Biden has previously called Mr Putin a “killer” and an “autocrat” and warned him about Russian meddling in Crimea.

The Russian leader hit back saying “it takes one to know one” – alluding to American interference in countries across the globe.

Russia’s alleged involvement in attempted assassinations of a double agent and his daughter in Salisbury and political rival Alexi Navalny have also been widely condemned and led to harsh sanctions on the state.

Mr Biden said he warned his Russian counterpart that there would be “devastating” consequences if the jailed activist didn’t leave prison alive.

He told a press conference: “I made it clear to him that I believe the consequences of that would be devastating for Russia.”

Mr Putin shrugged off the threat – refusing to even mention the opposition leader’s name or guarantee his safe release.

Referring to him as “this man”, he said: “This man knew that he was breaking the law of Russia.”

The Russian statesman later said their three-hour talks had been “quite constructive” and praised Mr Biden as an “experienced statesman”.

Mr Biden responded that Russia is in a difficult situation because “they are being squeezed by China.

“They want desperately to remain a major power”.

Dominic Thiem out of French Open as Nadal and Djokovic's main threat suffers early exit

Dominic Thiem out of French Open as Nadal and Djokovic's main threat suffers early exit

“Novak Djokovic is still the rival, perhaps, who can cause more problems, along with Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev and Dominic Thiem,” he said.

“Of course, if Dominic Thiem regains the rhythm and confidence that he usually shows on clay, I would say that I do not see differences between him and Djokovic.

“Since he won the US Open he has dropped a bit, but I’m sure that for Roland Garros he will be at the necessary level and will be a very tough opponent.

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas suffers heart attack scare two years after first incident

Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas suffers heart attack scare two years after first incident

“I told him, ‘Roberto, give me sugar or something because I feel wrong and I don’t know what’s wrong with me’. I lay down on the ground and I could see something serious was happening to me.

“It’s like you’re in a pool and suddenly you want to get out and you can’t, it was an anguish. I was getting more and more short of breath. ‘Robert, please call the doctor,’ I said. ‘I’m drowning’.”

Casillas was spotted in the crowds of the Madrid Open on Tuesday, watching Rafael Nadal’s victory over Carlos Alcaraz.

The former Spanish goalkeeper reportedly holds an advisory role at Real Madrid, working alongside Florentino Perez.

Look away now: Sickened Erling Haaland can’t watch as teammate

Look away now: Sickened Erling Haaland can’t watch as teammate

Borussia Dortmund wonderkid Erling Haaland had to look away in the stands as his teammate Mateu Morey suffered a horrific injury against Holsten Kiel in the German cup semifinal on Saturday, finding his knee stuck in the turf.

The third division minnows, who had upset the odds to knock out domestic rulers and Champions League holders Bayern Munich on penalties earlier in the competition, were outclassed at the Signal Iduna Park.

A brace from Gio Reyna and goals by Marco Reus, Thorgan Hazard and Jude Bellingham gave the hosts a 5-0 and a date in the final with RB Leipzig.

Yet it was the horrendous incident involving Morey that stole the headlines.

Ruled out of the match through injury and watching from the stands, golden boy Erling Haaland looked away in horror as his teammate twisted his knee at a shuddering angle while stretching to control the ball.

“That didn’t look good,” admitted goalscorer Reus post-match to Ruhr Nachrichten.

“We have to wait and see what the investigations reveal.”

Ex-Liverpool star Emre Can vowed: “Of course we are happy about [getting to] the final, but Mateu’s injury seemed bad.

“We will support him no matter how long he is out. It hurts us all.”

Spain youth prospect Morey had been enjoying a breakthrough campaign at Dortmund, featuring in 23 games for them so far.

Brought on in the 62nd minute with the score already 5-0, his cameo lasted just 12 minutes when the grim accident ended his afternoon and season.

Stretchers were immediately called for Morey, who was replaced by Belgium international Thomas Meunier. Dortmund are unsure how long he will be back for.

Offering their support, Dortmund wrote on Twitter: “If there is anyone who will give their all to come back stronger, it’s Mateu. We’re all with you.”

Haaland echoed the sentiment, sharing a photo of Instagram of himself with his close friend, adding: “Come back stronger.”

Taking to his own Twitter account, Morey posted a photo of himself smiling with thumbs and his feet up on Sunday afternoon.

“Gutted to have to miss the final but I will be your biggest fan in the stands,” he said.

“I unfortunately have to undergo surgery and will be working hard to come back stronger. The road to recovery starts now.”

Toddler suffers kidney failure after eating seagull droppings while out playing in the garden

A TODDLER has suffered kidney failure which docs said was due to eating seagull droppings while playing in the garden.

Jaydon Pritchard, of Amlwch in Anglesey, Wales, spent 19 days hooked up to a dialysis machine and although is now home, he is “still not out of the woods”.

The youngster was diagnosed with an E. coli infection, which can cause severe stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting.

Humans can pick up the bug from food or water that is contimated with it.

But Jaydon’s grandfather, Arwel Pritchard, told North Wales Live: “The doctors diagnosed him with kidney failure and told us that he had E. coli poisoning from having ingested the seagull faeces.”

Jaydon’s ordeal started on Tuesday, April 6, when he was taken to the doctor after being unwell for two days.

He was suspected to have a virus by doctors at Ysbyty Gwynedd and sent home to recover, where he lives with grandparents Arwel and Christine and mum Tiffany.

But Arwel said the next day he “didn’t do anything apart from sleep and be sick”.

Later in the evening the family heard a “horrible noise coming from his cot” and were shocked to discover he was having a fit. 

They immediately called for the ambulance, but Jaydon suffered another four fits before he arrived at hospital. 

Arwel said: “It was like he was looking through you. He didn’t recognise anyone.

“There was a point where we really thought we were going to lose him. It was horrific.”

What is E. coli and what are the symptoms of infection?

Escherichia coli is a type of bacteria common in human and animal intestines.

While most types of E.coli are harmless some can cause serious food poisoning and infection.

E.coli bacteria is a common cause of cystitis – an infection of the bladder.

Some types of E.coli can cause gastrointestinal infections.

As the bacteria can survive outside of the body, its levels serve as a measure of general hygiene and faecal contamination of an environment.

A common mode of infection is by eating food that is contaminated with the bacteria.

Signs include:

  • Diarrhea, which may range from mild and watery to severe and bloody
  • Stomach cramping, pain or tenderness
  • Nausea and vomiting, in some people

After being rushed to Ysbyty Gwynedd, a team from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool were sent to pick up Jaydon within a few hours.

In most cases, people recover from E. coli within a week.

But some E. coli strains produce toxins (Shiga toxins) that can cause severe illness, which is extremely rare in England and Wales.

Sometimes these severe cases of E. coli can lead to a life-threatening form of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome.

The bacteria lodges in the digestive tract and produces toxins that enter the blood.

These toxins destroy red blood cells and block the kidneys filtering system, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

Last summer, Public Health England said it was investigating a spike in Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) infections focused in the Midlands.

It said it could be due to warmer weather.

Jaydon is "still not out of the woods" but is doing much better

Jaydon was hooked up to a dialysis machine which filters waste and fluid from the body when the kidneys are not working. He also received three blood transfusions during his stay.

Arwel said: “We were fearing the worst at the time, seeing his little body hooked up to the dialysis machine and his face turned yellow.”

The ordeal has been “traumatising” for the family.

But Jaydon is doing “much better now than what he was a couple of weeks ago”.

His grandmother said she was “apprehensive” over leaving him in the garden again, where he is suspected to have first eaten the seagull faeces. 

She said: “I clean the patio every day, but it’s difficult because the seagulls are nesting nearby and it’s a constant mess to clean up.

“Poor Jaydon is on all sorts of medications now, we just hope that he’s not suffered any permanent issues. He’s still not himself, he’s still quite grey, but he’s getting there slowly.”

The grandparents issued a warning to others to “make sure that their children are playing in a safe environment, particularly when they’re outside”.

Jaydon faces a series of visits to Ysbyty Gwynedd over the coming weeks before he is taken to Alder Hey again for another check-up.

Chris Weidman injury: American suffers horrific broken leg in Uriah Hall UFC 261 bout

Chris Weidman injury: American suffers horrific broken leg in Uriah Hall UFC 261 bout

Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman’s hopes of picking up a crucial victory at UFC 261 ended with the very first kick of the fight against Uriah Hall.

Weidman faced Uriah Hall in a middleweight bout in Jacksonville, Florida, and looked to make a fast start in the opening seconds of the fight as he closed the distance and threw a powerful leg kick at Hall.

But Hall, using a defensive technique to “check” the kick, lifted his leg off the ground, causing the Weidman’s leg to snap on impact. The break could be heard around the packed VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena as the 15,000-strong crowd gasped in shock at the sight, and sound, of Weidman’s horrific injury.

It meant the fight was over in just 17 seconds, giving Hall the TKO victory. But Hall wasn’t interested in celebrating a win, and was clearly shocked and distressed by what had just transpired in the octagon.

“I got nothing but respect for Chris Weidman. He’s truly one of the best,” he told Joe Rogan after the verdict was read.

“It’s a crazy story that he’s the first man I fought that defeated me, that introduced me to fear.

“He’s the first one to defeat Anderson (Silva). I was the last. and it crazy that we ended up here again.

“Man, I feel so bad. I hope he’s OK. I with his family well. It’s a sucky part of this sport. It’s the hurt business.

“Whatever rank I am in the future, if he gets healthy, I owe him this fight.”

The graphic injury suffered by Weidman was a bizarre flashback to a fight earlier in his career.

Back in 2013, at UFC 168, Weidman checked a kick from former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, causing the Brazilian legend to suffer a broken leg in Las Vegas.

And, in a cruel instance of history repeating itself, it was Weidman who suffered an almost identical broken leg as he was stretchered away from the cage with a career-threatening injury.

Oscars’ Red Carpet Economy suffers ‘brutal hit’ due to COVID pandemic

Oscars' Red Carpet Economy suffers 'brutal hit' due to COVID pandemic

In a typical year, Hollywood’s awards season provides work for an army of people including glam squads of hair and make-up people, of course, but also florists, limo drivers, waiters, parking attendants and so many more.

Those workers are suffering from what The Hollywood Reporter calls a “brutal hit” to their ability to make a living.

It’s been called The Red Carpet Economy, where thousands work largely unseen by the public, performing all sorts of tasks.

This has been their busiest weekend of the year, until now.

“I think a lot of people are really hurting,” said Eric Buterbaugh, who is known as the florist to the stars. “To be honest, I hate to say this but, it doesn’t really even feel like The Oscars, really.”

He is still the go-to floral designer, but right now his business must depend on gifting, for folks who send his floral designs to say “congratulations” or “thanks.”

“Normally, during Oscars season we’re doing four, five, six big parties and as those aren’t happening this year, it’s really a weird year for us,” Buterbaugh said.

His famous attention to detail has kept him busy. Same with caterer Sean Hayman, but that doesn’t mean business as usual.

“I had a full time assistant and she pretty much ran the office,” Hayman said. “And I had to let her go.”

His company fed firefighters battling last summer’s blaze in the Angeles National Forest, but his big show business gig last year, feeding the crowd at The Critics Choice Awards, evaporated in 2021 when the ceremony went virtual.

“It will be a matter of starting all over,” Hayman predicts. “But I like to think positive, and I think after a year or so, people will thirst for the more elaborate for what we were doing before this happened.”

Mark your calendars: April 25 is Oscar Sunday. Live coverage begins Sunday morning and continues all day with special “On The Red Carpet” coverage leading up to the 93rd Academy Awards ceremony. After the last award is handed out, stay with “On The Red Carpet” for continuing coverage. Be sure to follow @OnTheRedCarpet on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok for all your Oscar news and information.
