Gives ‘awkward kiss’ at EU summit
Gordan Grlic Radman, Croatian minister
He himself described it as “a cordial interaction between colleagues”, but for example Croatian former Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor said: “Kissing women without consent is also violence, right?” That is what Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Grlić Radman (65) did when he greeted his German counterpart Annalena Baerbock at an EU meeting. They shook hands, he wanted to kiss and she quickly turned her head away. “Maybe it was an awkward moment,” Radman said. “I apologize.”
Injures knee during combat training
Mark Zuckerberg, American entrepreneur
Mark Zuckerberg (39) has torn the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. The founder of Facebook announced this via Instagram, which is part of Meta, the company behind Facebook. Zuckerberg suffered the injury while training in mixed martial arts (MMA). He said he was preparing for a fight early next year, which now has to be postponed. That fight is not against X boss Elon Musk, who has been challenging Zuckerberg online for some time and vice versa.
Then don’t stop playing football
Marouane Fellaini, Belgian footballer
“He will continue to play football no matter what, he will certainly not stop.” This is what Karim Mejati, the agent of Marouane Fellaini (35), says VTM News. However, the coach of Chinese Shandong Taishan had previously hinted that Fellaini is quitting the club because he is hanging up his football boots. So nothing of the sort, according to Mejati. “This year he has recorded exceptional statistics in China. So Fellaini is in shape for one last adventure.” Although a return to Belgium seems out of the question.
Receives criticism for playing with makeup
Alisha Lehmann, Swiss football player
A simple message that she “never gives up”, that can’t hurt, right? That’s what Alisha Lehmann (24) must have thought when she shared some photos with that caption with her 16 million followers on Instagram after the Swiss national team lost to Spain in the Nations League. Although this quickly led to online criticism of the make-up that Lehmann wears during competitions. Strange, because if Cristiano Ronaldo has proven anything, it is that paying a lot of attention to appearance does not equate to playing poorly.
