Some rotter has stolen my mum's car after dialysis in Leicester. Silver/grey Corsa EX09TXE. I'll reward any help with return. RT please.

Former footballer and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker believes BT Sport "means business" after the company announced a £897 million deal to broadcast live coverage of Champions League and Europa League games.
Seems @btsport mean business. Securing the rights to the Champions League shows real ambition and an understanding of the power of football.

Gary Lineker has said that the behaviour of pushy parents is "utterly depressing."
Writing in the New Statesman the former striker, who was never booked during his career, said that he has even taken some parents aside to advise them to calm down.
Lineker wrote: "The competitive nature of most mums and dads is astounding. The fear they instil in our promising but sensitive Johnny is utterly depressing.
"We need a parental cultural revolution. If we could just get them to shut the f*** up and let their children enjoy themselves, you would be staggered at the difference it would make."

Football pundits had mixed reactions on Twitter to head coach Paolo Di Canio's exit from Sunderland AFC:
Di Canio signed 14 players, brought in an entire back-room staff, and now he's gone. Football madness. Match that Downton!
