As reported by the BBC, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said today that the United Kingdom is in a “late” phase of the plan to combat COVID-19. There have been 596 confirmed cases in the British Isles. “We are considering banning important public events like sports games,” Johnson said. At the moment, the Premier League continues to be disputed and open door. On the other hand, Donald Trump, President of the United States, excluded the United Kingdom from the ban on flights within the European framework.The decision that the British Government can take will be highly relevant regarding the future of the Eurocup this summer. Seven of the matches in the tournament will be held at Wembley Stadium in London, while others will take place in Glasgow, Dublin and Cardiff. In Spain, Italy, Portugal, the Netherlands, Argentina and the NBA they have suspended their competitions. The Premier continues its courseAfter the appearance of the Prime Minister, the Premier League as a competition, has announced that the scheduled matches will continue to be held: “While the Prime Minister reported that all sporting events should take place as normal for now, also indicated that the Government is considering banning important public events, such as sports games. ““The well-being of players, staff and supporters is of utmost importance and we will continue to follow England’s Public Health guidelines in depth.“The Premier League explained in the note. So, and as long as the government does not alter the plan, football will continue to be played normally.

Indiana Pacers guard Jamaal Tinsley was suspended for Saturday night’s game against Philadelphia for conduct detrimental to the team. Tinsley has had his share of problems this season. He was hit with a felony charge of intimidation and misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and intimidation after a bar fight in Indianapolis last month. He also was present at the altercation at Club Rio in October that involved former Pacer Stephen Jackson. Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said those issues were unrelated to the suspension. The NBA suspended Detroit Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace one game for receiving his 16th technical foul of the season. Hardy defends titleWilson High graduate Jessica Hardy, now a sophomore at Cal, successfully defended her 100-yard breaststroke title at the NCAA women’s championships Friday in Minneapolis. Hardy finished in 59.43 seconds. Five days after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, Ron Artest said he’d stumbled as a father and husband – and the Sacramento Kings announced they would let the volatile player return to the team. “First, I want to apologize to my wife, to my family,” Artest said Saturday. He then lowered his head and fought back tears for nearly a minute before continuing. “I want to apologize to the Kings, to my teammates, to the NBA, everybody.” The Kings had excused Artest indefinitely Tuesday from all team activities, one day after he was arrested at his home in a Sacramento suburb. A woman called 911 and said she had been assaulted, and a police report said Artest had slapped the woman’s face and grabbed her repeatedly, causing visible injuries on her hand and leg. Klitschko KOs AustinWladimir Klitschko successfully defended his IBF heavyweight title Saturday night, dropping Ray Austin with a flurry of left hooks and stopping the American challenger in the second round in Mannheim, Germany. The Ukrainian knocked down Austin 87 seconds into the round with at least three left hooks. The American climbed to his feet but referee Eddie Cotton stopped the fight. “I was surprised he got back up, but he wasn’t clear in the head,” Klitschko said. “I was motivated by the talk from Austin and his promoter, Don King, before the fight.” Klitschko improved to 48-3 with his 43rd knockout in the mandatory defense, while Austin fell to 24-4 with four draws and 16 knockouts. Hastings sets recordSouthern Illinois’ Brittany Riley had the best mark in women’s weight throw history Saturday, breaking her own record with a toss of 83 feet, 10 inches in the NCAA indoor track and field championships. Riley, a junior from Flossmoor, Ill., broke her mark of 80-7 , set this season, and won by almost 10 feet. In fact, her second-longest toss Saturday was 82-2. Later, South Carolina’s Natasha Hastings set a collegiate record in the women’s 400, finishing in 50.80 seconds. Iowa’s Kineke Alexander, the defending champion, was second in 51.48. Jones may be doneTennessee coach Jeff Fisher doesn’t expect troubled cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones to return to the Titans’ facility with the rest of his teammates when they report March 19. The NFL is examining 10 separate incidents in which when Jones has been questioned by police since being drafted, including a Feb. 19 triple shooting at a Las Vegas strip club. Fisher and chief operating officer Steve Underwood met with Jones’ lawyers at the attorneys’ request Friday for what Fisher characterized as an information-gathering meeting. Fisher said the Titans are still gathering their own information before deciding whether to keep Jones. Marathon to pay upOrganizers of the Los Angeles Marathon promised they will pay this year’s winners on time and avoid delays that prompted last year’s top finishers to boycott the event. Some of the 2006 runners waited nearly a year to collect all their money and some are still owed thousands of dollars, the Daily News reported Saturday. “It’s all the aftermath of last year’s treatment. It didn’t even remotely cross my mind to send anybody this year,” said Brendan Reilly, who represented the 2006 fourth-place finisher, Nuta Olaru. Konstantin Selinevich, who represented fifth-place winner Irina Safarova Salinevich, said the runner still is owed $2,700. Federer closes inNext week at the Pacific Life Open, the mark in peril is the 46-match winning streak put together by Argentine left-hander Guillermo Vilas in 1977. Roger Federer has won 41 in a row during a streak that dates to mid-August of 2006. The three-time defending tournament champion can reach 47 consecutive victories with another title at Indian Wells. The 25-year-old Swiss star says the consecutive winning streak record “would be very nice,” but insists that’s not going to be his focus when he begins play in the tournament on today. Federer has been No. 1 on the ATP Tour for a record 162 consecutive weeks. He has won five of the past six Grand Slams and nine of them in four years. BrieflyGermany’s Jenny Wolf broke a world record that stood for nearly six years and Sven Kramer of the Netherlands shattered a mark that didn’t even last a month. Wolf broke the record for the women’s 500 meters and Kramer broke the men’s 10,000 mark – both by significant margins – Saturday at the World Single Distances Speedskating Championships. Steve Fisher led a U.S. medals sweep at the World Cup halfpipe snowboard competition Saturday at Whiteface Mountain, while Olympic silver medalist Gretchen Bleiler won the women’s event. Clemson running back Ray Ray McElrathbey, who took custody of his 12-year-old brother last year, was suspended from the team for at least four practices because of academic concerns. Coach Tommy Bowden said McElrathbey return to the team after spring break if he gets his class work in order. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won REVEALED A potential £27million deal for Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira, who is with Uruguay at the World Cup, is understood to be in the pipeline along with a transfer for Borussia Dortmund centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos.Off the field, there has also been plenty of re-organisation.On Tuesday afternoon, it was confirmed that Steve Bould will continue as one of two assistants for Emery, while Jens Lehmann would not be part of the backroom staff.Lehmann appeared to take a dig at Emery after his exit was confirmed, posting on Twitter: “I am sorry to leave the club after only one year again. It was a good experience working with the players as one of the assistant coaches.

ARCADIA – Rick Caruso has studied the marketplace carefully and believes Arcadia can handle two malls and 2.1 million square feet of retail space.He is so confident of this judgment that he is willing to place a $400 million bet on it.But Caruso is also rolling the dice for the Westfield Group, which has reached the opposite conclusion.“It doesn’t make sense,” argued Westfield Vice Chairman Rich Green at a community meeting last week. “This market doesn’t have the capacity.”The conflict between Westfield, owners of the existing Westfield Santa Anita mall, and Caruso, developer of the proposed Shops at Santa Anita mall, often feels unnecessary, observers say.Political leaders have repeatedly urged the warring corporations to cooperate. Why, they ask, should Arcadia be subjected to a zero-sum struggle for market dominance when both companies can succeed side-by-side?But Westfield and Caruso appear to have a genuine disagreement over how much retail the market can bear. Caruso said he believes his project will be successful and make Westfield more successful. Westfield officials say they believe Caruso could ruin them both. With such divergent views, how can they cooperate?“It’s getting to be quite a donnybrook,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation. “A lot of retail stores are very cautious about putting retail too close to each other… But I think (Caruso) feels like there’s an opportunity there.”The decision about how much retail to allow around Santa Anita Park rests, for the moment, with the City Council. To assist them, the council will have the benefit of an independent economic analysis, due out next month. Both Westfield and Caruso can be expected to prepare their own reports on this pivotal issue.But the decision was largely made a decade ago. Facing flagging attendance, the racetrack’s owner asked the City Council to rezone the track’s south parking lot for commercial development. The council agreed.Since then, the track’s owner, Magna Entertainment Corp., has attempted to develop the property several times. Each time, the deal fell apart.The Westfield Group bought the Westfield Santa Anita mall in 1998, knowing that the parking lot next-door could one day become a competing mall. In fact, Westfield had a series of meetings with Magna owner Frank Stronach in hopes of being selected to develop the property.Those negotiations broke down for reasons that are now in dispute. Caruso cites the episode as proof of Westfield’s hypocrisy. If the Shops at Santa Anita is overbuilding, why did Westfield seek to develop the same property?Westfield claims the negotiations broke down because, in Green’s words, “It just simply didn’t make sense. We don’t think the market can handle the depth.”Assistant City Manager Don Penman said Westfield proposed a “power center” for the site – a development heavy on “big box” retail chains such as Costco and Best Buy.“That was not what Stronach wanted,” Penman said. “He wanted more high-end retail.” email@example.com(626) 578-6300, Ext. 4444
