What’s in the news
After yesterday’s tragic news about Andy Murray’s gold postbox, we have a wonderful follow up on the story. The gold postbox has risen from the dead. It has been resurrected.

The BBC reports that Andy Murray’s gold postbox was repaired pretty quickly after it was knocked down by a car on Monday as by Tuesday afternoon it was back in business.

Well, well, well. As you will have read above, Bernard Tomic got a pretty impressive win at the Atlanta Open as he beat Frances Tiafoe, but fans were still not happy, according to the Daily Mail.

“Bernard Tomic sparks major backlash despite BEATING American tennis star – as fans accuse the pair of trying to ‘out-tank’ each other” says the headline, but we can’t find any fan using the word “out-tank” in the report.

Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia, who stunned former champion Garbine Muguruza in the first round at Wimbledon, has been provisionally suspended after failing a drugs test.
