The announcement, first reported by Bloomberg, comes after Biden's deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said Sunday that the Democratic presidential nominee hasn't yet been tested for Covid-19 but that he hasn't had the virus.
Bayern Munich win Champions League as Kingsley Coman header sinks PSG When Kingsley Coman stole into space at the far post, he knew that the right delivery from Joshua Kimmich would give him the opportunity he had dreamed of. The Champions League final had been tight and tense, with a few chances for either team but, until this point, no clinical edge. That was about to change.

'It was dehumanising': Jessica Shuran Yu condemns training abuse in China A world championship figure skater has urged the International Olympic Committee to do more to protect vulnerable young girls after detailing how she and others suffered abuse inside the Chinese system. Jessica Shuran Yu, who was born, raised and trained in China and competed in the 2017 world championships before helping to coach junior skaters, told the Guardian that a “culture of physical discipline” was common in the country, with athletes also frequently criticised as “lazy”, “stupid”, “retarded”, “useless” and “fat”.

In emotional RNC speech, widow of retired police captain killed by looters says she relives 'horror' every day The widow of a retired St. Louis police officer who was shot and killed during the violence and looting that followed widespread protests over racial injustice in June spoke Thursday at the Republican National Convention – fighting back tears in deeply-emotional remarks as she recalled the night her husband was killed and expressing her anger at the rioting.

Mahmoud Trezeguet downs Arsenal to lift Aston Villa out of relegation zone The cries at full-time, after one last foray from Arsenal was repelled and once Chris Kavanagh had finally blown his whistle, were so loud that for a moment it was tempting to wonder whether any supporters had sneaked inside. Aston Villa, left desolate by Theo Walcott’s equaliser at Goodison Park last Thursday, had moved out of the relegation zone for the first time since late February and nobody could fault the way they took their chance.

It was seized upon through near-flawless defending at one end and, at the other, by a forward who has hit form at exactly the right time.
