Spare a moment

Spanish Amateur Golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena was murdered last week in the US. The 22-year-old was found dead on an Iowa golf course. She was attending the Iowa State University on a Golf Scholarship. She was the second female student of the college to be killed in the recent weeks. The investigation continues.

Something completely different

Huang Zhengyu of Guangzhou R&F scored one of the most ridiculous own goals you’re ever likely to see. His teammate Yi Tend smashed the ball against him while trying to clear it for the corner and the ball rolls over the time. Seriously, look it up.
