Review: NHL 21 scores with Be A Pro, but could still be better Playing NHL 21 makes me feel old. I say that as someone who used to religiously buy sports games starting way back in the NES days so my brother and I can play them to death, at least until the next new shiny sports title comes along. By the time the rivalry between EA Sports and Visual Concepts came about, there were times when we would actually buy their competing games during the same year. That’s how much we both enjoyed playing sports games. Somewhere along the way, though, we just stopped.

Paul Pogba 'makes transfer decision' after Bruno Fernandes claims emerge Paul Pogba reportedly still wants to leave Manchester United despite claims he's keen to play alongside Bruno Fernandes. Pogba's future has been the subject of much speculation all season, as the World Cup winner has largely watched United from the injury room. Until January the Red Devils were reliant on the French midfielder returning to transform their floundering season as they push for a top-four finish. But after signing Fernandes in the January transfer window, focus has moved away from Pogba and towards the fledgling Portuguese. Recent reports claimed Pogba has been keeping a close eye on the way in which United have been improving since January.

Accenture: ‘Every business will be a health business’ Image copyright Getty Images Consultancy firm Accenture says all firms will have to be focused on health even after the coronavirus outbreak ends. Theme parks taking guests’ temperatures to factories using thermal scanners could become permanent fixtures. “We used to say every business will be a digital business,” said Gianfranco Casati, Accenture’s chief executive for growth markets. “But today we say every business will be a health business."

Virtual F1 and Lando Norris provide light relief in testing times Formula One successfully ran its first virtual GP on Sunday with the Bahrain Grand Prix won by Renault’s Chinese test driver Guanyu Zhou. The esport event created to fill the void left by the opening seven meetings of the season being called off was a qualified success. It worked, albeit with technical issues but the driver lineup was far from the representative of the real grid, with current F1 drivers decidedly thin on the ground. F1 had hoped to involve as many current drivers as possible but of the 2020 grid only McLaren’s Lando Norris, a keen gamer, and Williams’s Nicholas Latifi were racing. Latifi in his rookie season, has yet to actually compete in a real F1 race. Coronavirus updates: El Paso, Texas, to go on 2-week shutdown; New York tops 500K cases; Wisconsin runs low on ICU beds; 227K US deaths Months into the COVID-19 pandemic states are setting records for the most new cases and deaths in a week since the pandemic began. USA TODAY While the resurgence of the coronavirus had been tough on the economy, there was a bit of good news Thursday — the economy grew more than 33% in the third quarter as it bounced back from shutdowns spawned by the pandemic. The reversal, however, came amid warnings that rising COVID-19 infections around the country could again slow the economy in the fourth quarter. The situation could worsen because of the lack of a stimulus deal from Congress. Daily U.S. coronavirus hospitalizations surpassed 45,000 for the first time since mid-August this week as the autumn pandemic surge continues unabated.

Coronavirus: South Korea confirms huge rise in cases Image copyright AFP South Korea says the number of new coronavirus cases in the country has more than doubled in one day. Officials said on Saturday that 229 new cases had been confirmed since Friday, raising the total to 433. In a televised address, Prime Minister Chung Sye-kyun described the situation as "grave". Many of the new cases are linked to a hospital and to a religious group near the south-eastern city of Daegu, authorities have said. Two patients in South Korea have died so far and there are fears the number will rise.

Coronavirus: Scammers use 'hook' of pandemic to target victims Image copyright PA Media People and businesses should be wary of scammers trying to turn the coronavirus pandemic to their advantage, the National Crime Agency (NCA) has warned. Scammers have been targeting vulnerable people including those self-isolating at home, the NCA said. Graeme Biggar, director general of the agency's National Economic Crime Centre, said the virus was increasingly being used as "a hook to commit fraud". It comes as two people were arrested on suspicion of selling illegal tests.

Rory Best: 'I thought you played hard and partied hard. I had to change' “It was another one of those nights and I went in to the local chicken shop, as you do,” Rory Best says as he remembers a drunken time long before he won the first of 124 Test caps. Despite being a Protestant from Ulster, and a man once derided for his background and body shape, Best captained Ireland 38 times, with his final game being the World Cup quarter-final defeat against New Zealand last year. He is the most capped forward in Irish rugby history, and only Brian O’Driscoll and Ronan O’Gara have played more times for Ireland. But I like the fact that Best can bring us back to a Belfast chicken shop – from where, in his early 20s, he stumbled home and caused unintentional havoc. “I’m coming back and sometimes I brought keys, sometimes I didn’t. At the place I was staying you could put your foot to the corner of the door and give it a nudge, and it sprung open.

Amazon expected to be biggest winner for Thursdays earnings On Thursday, the four biggest tech companies announce their earnings and tell you a lot about where we are as consumers. For instance, in the last earnings, Amazon and Apple stunned investors by revealing that when the pandemic started, Amazon replaced the neighborhood retail store for many people, as more products than ever were purchased during the crucial March 30 to June 30 time period, when COVID first hit. And as many people were sent home to work and learn, Apple sold more iPhones, iPads and Macintosh computers as essential work tools. Both companies set sales records, while Google and Facebook saw advertising dip, as coronavirus hit retailers in the pocketbook. So what now for Apple, Amazon, Google parent company Alphabet and Facebook?

Coronavirus: Tinder boss says 'dramatic' changes to dating Image copyright Getty Images Coronavirus has had a "dramatic" effect on the way people use the dating app Tinder, its boss has told BBC News, though the changes may suit plans he already had in store for the platform. The coronavirus outbreak and lockdown conditions have brought mixed fortunes to online-dating platforms like Tinder, according to its chief executive Elie Seidman. On the one hand, user engagement is up, a trend other dating apps have reported too. Tinder users made 3 billion swipes worldwide on Sunday 29 March, the most the app has ever recorded in a single day. China says coronavirus cases falling, it is past peak of disease: report Chinese authorities are allowing citizens to reopen their business and are easing containment measures as the country's health commission says the nation has made it past the worst of the coronavirus threat within its borders, according to reports. According to Reuters, new coronavirus cases in Hubei province, which contains Wuhan, the epicenter of the disease that Wednesday was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, totaled just eight on Thursday -- the lowest number recorded so far. "Broadly speaking, the peak of the epidemic has passed for China," National Health Commission Spokesman Mi Feng said, according to Reuters.

‘I thought it was appalling that the Atlético fans were allowed to come’ At a packed Anfield on that floodlit night not two weeks ago, before anybody knew Liverpool’s tumultuous 3-2 defeat by Atlético Madrid would be England’s last major football match for a very long time, it was – in sporting terms – a privilege to be there. It was genuinely a great European night, at a ground and club whose very essence is celebrating great European nights, stretching back decades to Bill Shankly’s great rebuilding. That night, before Boris Johnson’s government finally decided “mass gatherings” were no longer so safe in the Covid-19 pandemic, dazzled visitors were as ever taking selfies by the statue of Shankly, with its winning inscription: “He made the people happy.” Whether it was quite such a privilege to be there in health terms is a question a growing number of Liverpool supporters have been asking. On the same day, the World Health Organisation classified Covid-19 as a pandemic. Schools were not planned to close, football matches were being played.
