One of the first things that strike you in most European countries is how life goes on with minimum of noise. First impressions of Germany four years ago were as if someone had pressed the mute button on a giant remote. Read more

He is 232 days old, but has a wicked sense of humour. He introduces himself as the “youngest Twitter scribe in the world.” He is an infant, who probably hasn’t even learnt to walk or hold himself upright, but tweets everyday. Read more

England’s recent performance against Algeria (0-0) has probably been one of the most dreadful ones we have witnessed so far. Capello and company were successful in the World Cup qualifiers but their start in South Africa has proved to be a major disappointment. Read more

The scorecard read 4-0. Germany started on a rampage and thrashed Australia, with all the goals coming from different players. Lukas Podolski opened the scoring, Old Gun Miroslav Klose chipped in with the second (aiming to break Ronaldo’s record of 15 World Cup goals at this tournament), young blood Thomas Muller got the third, and Brazilian-born Cacau (now a German national) slotted home the final of an evening of swashbuckling play.

He is a disciplinarian. He is stern and strict. He wears odd-shaped glasses that exaggerate the strictness quotient. He folds his arms across his chest during training and warm-ups, the beady eyes missing not a single thing.

The Cup of Life (France, 1998) was an anthem, a soul-uplifting number. It turned Ricky Martin in to a household name and effectively cemented his popularity around the world. It was an inspiration. Watching Ricky perform on stage, waving his arms in a left-to-right trajectory that would have belied a Chinese fan, was something different. The camera would zoom into faces of fans, as excited as the Puerto Rican on the stage. Read more
