I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Chelsea v Bayern Munich: pre-season friendly – live!

That was pretty fun, actually.

Chelsea have been much improved since the water break, and Willian does well to find Moses, banging outside him. His low cross is a good one, but Batshuayi goes just too early and it slides behind him. No matter; Alonso is backing up to smash a livener across Starke.

Don't let the sun go down on Snopes – it helped start the internet

The fact-checking website, which got a new lease of life in the era of ‘fake news’ is in danger of being snuffed out in a legal battle between warring exes

• Alex Hern is a technology reporter for the Guardian

One of the brightest lights on the internet is in danger of being snuffed out: Snopes, the website that brought fact-checking to the web, is facing the prospect of losing all its advertising revenue due to a painful legal battle that ultimately stems from the co-founders’ divorce two years ago.

It would be an ignominious end for a website which has survived more than two decades online, outlasting boom, bust and boom again, before finding a new lease of life, and widespread respect, in the era of “fake news”.

Real Madrid closing in on £161m world record deal for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappé
• Monaco deny agreement for forward has been reached

Clancy Sigal obituary
US journalist, novelist and political activist blacklisted in Hollywood during the 1950s who fled to London, where he became a darling of the left

The work of the American novelist, journalist and essayist Clancy Sigal, who has died aged 90, was much admired and discussed – particularly in leftwing circles – over the course of six decades. His best known book, the novel Going Away (1961), featured a politically blacklisted Hollywood agent on a cross-country journey from Los Angeles to New York, observing with sagacity the experiences both of ordinary people and of the protagonist himself.

The novel was largely autobiographical: Clancy himself had been blacklisted in Hollywood, where he worked as a talent agent, and, in the 1950s, had spent a period on the run from J Edgar Hoover’s FBI agents. At the end of that decade he fled to London, where he began a relationship with the novelist Doris Lessing and became a darling of the London left.
