This is Bruno Fernandes, dear readers. He’s a former Brazilian league champion and convicted kidnapper who’s currently on trial again – this time for the assault and murder of his ex-girlfriend (and mother of his youngest child).

For those propped up against their beds’ headboards, blissfully spooning their duvets and unaware of the outside world, Chelsea lodged a formal complaint with the FA against referee Mark Clattenburg last Sunday for what they believe was a racist insult aimed at John Obi Mikel during that day’s match versus Man United. While the club’s second complaint involving Juan Mata has since been dropped, Clattenburg’s already been relieved of this weekend’s duties – due to “scrutiny” said the FA – and the Metropolitan Police are now concurrently investigating the matter.
Belgian international footballer, Jonathan Legear, said he was “only slightly” over the drink-drive limit when he and his car crashed through the glass doors of a petrol station store, ramming through several stalls of food and drinks along the way.
We’re going to need a more precise definition of “only slightly” when Jonathan gets a second.
