KIM Jong-un has sent a historic personal letter to Donald Trump and it is making BIG news for all the wrong reasons. While political commentators wondered what was actually written inside the envelope, many were also asking why was it so huge in the first place. North Korean official Kim Yong Chol hand-delivered the overly large letter from the "Glorious Leader" to the President at a special ceremony on Friday. The Republican leader promptly described the massive message as "very nice" and "very interesting" during a meeting in the Oval Office. However, when the White House released photos of its delivery they quickly sent social media into meltdown. Many are now asking will Trump - who never likes to be outdone - send back an even bigger letter and, if so, where will it end. And others wondered if the giant envelope had been specifically sent to highlight the President's tiny hands. James Kosur said: "I'm 100% convinced that Kim Jong Un gave Donald Trump this unusually large … [Read more...] about Kim Jong-un sends MASSIVE letter to Donald Trump – could he be mocking the President’s tiny hands?

They had beaten Jonny Wilkinson and Sonny Bill Williams’ star-studded Toulon in Marseille eight years ago but this was more dramatic as they fought back from a 20-6 half-time deficit with an incredible show of defiance and courage. Just how did they manage to do it? Our man at the ground, Andy Howell, analyses the biggest comeback in a Challenge Cup final which thrilled locals in a crowd of 32,543 at Spanish football club Athletico Bilbao’s magnificent San Mames Stadium.

The west country … [Read more...] about The reasons for the Blues ‘mission impossible’ Euro glory
THE most common reasons for Brits to fail their driving test have been revealed - and they aren't as obvious as you might think. While Brits certainly aren't known for their incredible parking skills, tricky manoeuvres weren't the main reason drivers had to re-sit their test. A recent study, conducted by Warranty Direct, found that the most common reason new drivers would fail their practical test was because they did not properly observe the risks at a junction. Junctions posed a number of issues during driving tests, with many motorists failing when trying to turn right at a crossroads. Drivers were also highly likely to fail their test for not using their mirrors properly when making a turn. While parking manoeuvres weren't as common, reverse parking did come in third on the list, just above poor steering ability. Top 5 most common reasons for failing your driving test Observation at junctions Use of mirrors when changing direction Reverse park/left reverse Lack of control … [Read more...] about This is the top reason Brits fail their driving test – and it’s NOT parking errors

Having spent most of the past decade in a futile attempt to replicate the Barcelona model, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal finally almost emulated the Catalan giants here in the worst possible way. With a 4-1 first leg advantage, Arsenal had fallen 2-0 behind and were facing the very serious threat of following Barcelona out of European competition just 48 hours after Roma had produced one of the great comebacks from an identical position. A truly dreadful midfield performance had allowed CSKA Moscow to dominate the match but, with what was their first shot on target in the entire match, Danny Welbeck scored in the 75th minute to effectively take Arsenal into the Europa League semi-finals and also keep alive the club’s hopes both of a trophy and Champions League football next season. The respective loss through illness and injury of Granit Xhaka and Henrikh Mkhitaryan ensured two changes from Arsenal’s 4-1 first leg victory, with Mohamed Elneny coming into … [Read more...] about Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey strike late to send Arsenal to semi-final in difficult Russian test
