INDIANAPOLIS: Fernando Alonso hogged the spotlight all month at the Brickyard but on Sunday Takuma Sato was the headliner as the first Japanese to win the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing". On a powerhouse Andretti Autosport team that included twice Formula One world champion Alonso, last year's winner Alexander Rossi, 2014 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, Briton Jack Harvey and Marco Andretti, it was easy to overlook the soft-spoken Sato. But it will now be hard to miss him as he becomes not only the toast of IndyCar but also of his entire country. "This will be mega big," Sato told reporters. "I cannot imagine how it's going to be. "Nowadays, a lot of Japanese, the fans (are) following IndyCar Series, particularly for the Indy 500. "I know they flew over from Japan today. Many, many people came. "So I'm very, really proud of what we achieved, and the team gave a super good opportunity.

"It's indispensable to talk to Russia because there are a number of international subjects that will not be resolved without a tough dialogue with them," Macron said. "I will be demanding in my exchanges with Russia," the 39-year-old president told reporters at the end of the G-7 summit on Saturday, where the Western leaders agreed to consider new measures against Moscow if the situation in Ukraine did not improve. Strained relations under Hollande Relations between Paris and Moscow were increasingly strained under former president Francois Hollande. Putin, 64, cancelled his last planned visit in October after Hollande said he would see him only for talks on Syria. Then during the French election campaign the Macron camp alleged Russian hacking and disinformation efforts, at one point refusing accreditation to the Russian state-funded Sputnik and RT news outlets which it said were spreading Russian propaganda and fake news.

#FakeNews is the enemy!” Aside from bringing in additional aides to handle the Russia probe, the president's senior aides say that his strategy for confronting the crises — or for pushing a stalled legislative agendaremains unclear. Senior aides and long-time confidants admitted not knowing who Trump would hire, how safe the jobs of top staff are, what the White House's agenda is for the coming days, or what — if anything — they can accomplish. “We are letting others dictate entirely how we are perceived, one White House official said. “The calendar changes every day. There is no rhyme or reason to a lot of it.” Chief of staff Reince Priebus’s future remains uncertain, as it has been for several months. Shake-ups in Trump’s world can be slow to materialize or never happen, but White House senior aides regularly criticize Priebus in conversations with reporters.

MALACCA: The Malacca government has stopped issuing family entertainment licences in the state to make way for a review on the existing licensed operators, said Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron. He said the move was to identify the operators who had been abusing such licences by turning the outlets into gambling dens, although the state government had previously reviewed and issued the licences. Idris also said the cessation period had not been decided as the state government needed to obtain the right data including the existing number of such licences that had been issued. "I have taken the advice by Inspector-General of Police (Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar) before this and I want to see how many family entertainment licences had been issued so far. "Thus, the state government has taken a big step, namely to stop the issuance of the licence until all the existing operators have adhered to the set terms," he told reporters after the Umno Helps the People programme and the handing over of assistance to the Melaka Umno Division here today.

India has reported three cases of the Zika virus for the first time, including two pregnant women who delivered healthy babies. Health Ministry officials said Sunday that the three patients in western Gujarat state had recovered. “There is no need to panic,’’ Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, a top health ministry official, told reporters. Most recent case in January The World Health Organization said in a statement released Friday that the three cases that India reported to the WHO on May 15 were detected through routine blood surveillance in a hospital in Ahmadabad, Gujarat’s capital. Two cases were detected in February and November last year, while a third case was detected in January this year. Swaminathan, who heads the Indian Council of Medical Research, said the three patients had not traveled overseas and had acquired the infection locally. The virus is spread by the daytime-active Aedes mosquito.

GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government today lodged a police report over a flyer widely circulated on social media aimed to tarnish the image of the tourism industry. State Tourism, Development and Culture committee chairman Danny Law Heng Kiang (pix) said he received the flyer when he was in a market Saturday morning. He said he immediately checked on social media soon after he got home and was shocked to learn the fake flyer was posted by an individual. He said the flyer bearing tourism words with a beer brand logo reads "May has cum and so should you" to mark the National Masturbation Month at a beach hotel was uncalled for. It also stated each participant will receive free two bottles of beers for two "cums". He added the action by certain quarters was trying to sabotage tourism industry with the words of state's tourism on the flyer. "We (state) do not support such an event, " he told reporters outside Northeast district police headquarters in Jalan Patani.

Six against one The summit of G-7 wealthy nations pitted Trump against the leaders of Germany, France, Britain, Italy, Canada and Japan on several issues, with European diplomats frustrated at having to revisit questions they had hoped were long settled. Trump, who has previously called global warming a hoax, came under concerted pressure from the other leaders to honor the 2015 Paris Agreement on curbing carbon emissions. Although he tweeted that he would make a decision next week, his apparent reluctance to embrace the first legally binding global climate deal, signed by 195 countries, clearly annoyed German Chancellor Angela Merkel. "The entire discussion about climate was very difficult, if not to say very dissatisfying," she told reporters. "There are no indications whether the United States will stay in the Paris Agreement or not."

" The beauty school dropout hit the headlines in Australia when she was arrested in 2004 at Bali airport with several kilos of hashish stashed in her surfing gear, and was jailed the following year for 20 years. Corby, now 39, maintained her innocence, insisting the drugs had been planted, and received much support back home where some believed she had been set up or was the victim of a supposedly corrupt justice system. Her final day on the Indonesian resort island was a blaze of media attention, as she was hustled out of a villa with her face hidden under a scarf, and then chased by a huge pack of journalists before boarding a flight home. In a final twist, she managed to outsmart the media by heading back to Brisbane on a different flight than had been widely expected, apparently to avoid travelling with a large contingent of reporters. It was not clear if she was heading to her mother Rosleigh Rose's home in Loganlea, south of Brisbane, or to her sister's residence in the Gold Coast.

"This doesn't influence anything," record seven-times FA Cup winner Wenger told reporters. "It would be a bit ridiculous that 20 years depends on one game and that the future of the club depends on one game. "Overall I just want to do well for this club and apart from that it's down to the board members to decide whether I'm the right man to take this club further. "It's not about popularity, it's about competence. You can't do 35 years as a football manager if you think you are not the right man to do the job." The Wenger debate has divided the club's supporters this season, creating what Wenger describes as a "hostile" environment which has effected his players. He said more light would be shed on his situation on Wednesday or Thursday, but there seems little doubt Wenger is still held in high regard by the players. Aaron Ramsey, who scored his second FA Cup-winning goal having also secured the trophy in 2014 against Hull City, said he wants Wenger to continue in charge, praising his switch to a three-man defence which enabled Arsenal to finish the season strongly.

LONDON: Chelsea coach Antonio Conte rued his side's slow start to Saturday's FA Cup final, and a controversial decision by the referee that set Arsenal on their way to victory, dashing his hopes of a league championship and FA Cup double in his first season in England. "I think our start for sure wasn't good, wasn't good enough," Conte told reporters after Arsenal's 2-1 win over the English Premier League champions. "Honestly ... I think that this goal (should have been) disallowed because there is a clear handball." Arsenal took a 1-0 lead in the third minute when striker Alexis Sanchez seemed to catch the ball with his arm, deflecting it over the Chelsea defence and allowing him to nip in to score, even as a linesman had his flag raised for another Arsenal player standing in an offside position. Referee Anthony Taylor consulted with the linesman before awarding the goal to Arsenal.

"Nine trophies in a club like Barca, who have had a glorious decade, means that the players have been at their very best and I was able to enjoy it. These trophies were down to the players and their ambition," Luis Enrique told reporters. "It's great to finish the season with a trophy and not go home empty handed. We've won another trophy, but the team gave their best in every game. "I feel satisfied about a job well done and I can't wait to rest, to be with my family and enjoy some well deserved holiday." Luis Enrique said he had no plans for the immediate future and is expected to take a sabbatical year before plotting his next move. Former Athletic Bilbao coach Ernesto Valverde is set to be named as his successor on Monday, according to reports in the Spanish media. Rampaging run Barca were searching for one piece of silverware to end a disappointing campaign after surrendering the Liga title to Real Madrid and exiting the Champions League in the quarter-finals to Juventus and were without prolific striker Luis Suarez and defender Sergi Roberto through suspension.

President Donald Trump ended his first overseas trip on a buoyant note Saturday, telling a crowd of American sailors at a naval base in Sicily: “I think we hit a home run.” But aside from closing a $110 billion weapons deal with Saudi Arabia on the first day of his nine-day tour, it wasnt entirely clear what concrete goals the president achieved. Trump made it through the grueling trip without a major diplomatic incident—despite a close call in Israel, where he volunteered to reporters that he’d never uttered the country’s name as the source of intelligence he reportedly shared with Russian officials during an Oval Office visit. And he succeeded in putting off allies who were pressuring him to keep the U.S. in the landmark 2015 Paris climate accord, buying himself the space to make a diplomatically awkward decision that will please his base at home.
