The coincidences mount, as another Putin critic is shot dead

The coincidences mount, as another Putin critic is shot deadAn outspoken critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin was shot dead in broad daylight in Kiev Thursday, just two days after a lawyer for the family of a slain Russian whistleblower was injured in a mysterious fall from his fourth-story apartment near Moscow.

Rory McIlroy refuses to panic about Masters after Match Play exit

• Rory McIlroy not bothered by lack of competitive golf before first major
• World No3: ‘I can’t see a downside having not played as much as I planned’

Any comparison between Rory McIlroy and Lance Corporal Jones must register among the most peculiar of all time. It is doubtful the Northern Irishman has either watched Dad’s Army or would be of a mind to admit it.
