The 63-year-old man completed his half-marathon just three weeks after leaving COVID-19

A 63-year-old runner in India has completed a 21km run exactly 3 weeks after recovering from COVID-19 treatment.

Mr. Jagat Karani (63 years old) surprised and admired many people when he completed a semi-marathon in Gandhingar in early December when he had just undergone a COVID-19 epidemic treatment three weeks earlier.

Mr. Karani contracted COVID-19 in November 2020 and his lungs were severely damaged by this dangerous virus. After being diagnosed with the illness, he felt very “itchy” when he saw his friends participating in the Adani Ahmedabad Marathon on November 29, 2020 and he was determined not to sit still.

He signed up for a run in Gandhingar, although a group of six doctors treated him, his friends and his wife to discourage him. “I still want to run to prove to everyone that even infected with COVID-19, it is not a death sentence. I don’t want to become weak just because I have to be treated in the hospital ”.

As a result, on the 21st day after recovering from his illness, Mr. Karani completed 21km in this tournament with a time of 2 hours 42 minutes. “My friends drove and honked to cheer beside me as I ran this tournament. I feel very happy because I dare to take a risk to do something that many people think can not be done”.

In fact, Mr. Jagat Karani has been a movement runner for four years. He has been participating in marathons since 2016 and has completed all 84 tournaments that he registered.

“I want to go through this run to send everyone the message that I should not be too scared to translate COVID-19 and let fear weaken me. Please exercise regularly to have a better physical foundation”.

India is currently one of the countries with the highest number of people infected with COVID-19. According to statistics, this country has over 10.1 million people infected, about 9.72 million people have recovered and more than 147,000 people have died from this dangerous virus.

Kevin De Bruyne’s future is going to be set

According to many reputable sources, midfielder Kevin De Bruyne arranged to sign a new contract with Man City, thereby ending all rumors related to his future.

Kevin De Bruyne is the one that is considered as the best midfielder in the world at the moment. Last season, although Man City could not win the Premier League or the Champions League, De Bruyne was still highly appreciated by football viewers. In this season, the integrity of the Belgian conductor continues to be evident when he is carrying many stars at the Etihad Stadium.

De Bruyne’s current contract with Man City is still valid until the end of the summer of 2023. However, during the past time, many rumors have spread around the future of this 29-year-old player. In particular, major European clubs such as Real Madrid or PSG are said to be planning to recruit this super pass, especially in the context of Man City showing signs of going down after the golden period with Pep Guardiola.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has also confirmed the concern that Real Madrid and PSG are for former Chelsea midfielder. However, it seems that these two teams did not foresee that Man City also had plans to tie De Bruyne in the coming years.

Specifically, De Bruyne is now said to be happy at the Etihad Stadium despite the unsatisfactory start of the Manchester half. Here, he is being treated as a true king. Man City also mentioned the issue of extending his contract until 2025 with the Belgian star and received a nod from him. According to Romano, De Bruyne will get a raise if he agrees to commit to a long-term future with Man City. The current salary he currently receives at The Citizen is £ 300,000 / week.

At this time, the two sides are in the process of completing final procedures before holding the signing session. If you agree to stick with Man City for another 5 years, it is likely that Man City will be the last stop in De Bruyne’s career because after his contract expires, he is 34 years old.

Man City draw the penultimate team in the rankings

Coach Pep Guardiola’s teachers and coaches drew 1-1 against West Brom in the 13th round of the Premier League on the morning of December 16.

Man City has the opportunity to seek more victory when welcoming West Brom, the team that is at the bottom of the rankings. However, the host is disappointed when the opponent is holding a draw. Gundogan opened the score, but the defenders lacked focus, making Manchester’s green half a pity.

West Brom entered the match at Etihad with great determination. The visitors almost opened the scoring in the 8th minute. Taking advantage of Man City’s defenders’ embarrassment, Karrlan Grant broke through, then shot decisively. The ball was stretched, but it found the right position of goalkeeper Ederson.

With home advantage and outstanding team quality, Man City soon regained control of the game. Coach Pep Guardiola’s army maintained a 75% possession of the ball throughout the first half and forced the opponent to retreat deeply to defend.

West Brom’s massive defender did his best, but still could not avoid the goal in the 30th minute. Sterling slipped the ball to the bottom of the line, then passed it to Gundogan to finish off the visitors’ net.

The red and yellow striped defenders spent too much attention on Gabriel Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne and let Gundogan freely choose favorable positions to score. This is the German midfielder’s first goal in the Premier League after nearly a year. With West Brom, they continue to be the club with the worst defenders in the tournament, conceding for the 26th time in just 13 matches. On average, “The Magpies” conceded 2 goals per game.

Man City defenders are not under much pressure, but they play awkwardly when West Brom organize an attack. The goal in the 43rd minute of the team in the blue shirt came from a messy ball in front of the penalty area.

Semi Ajayi used his strength to defeat Nathan Ake. After the number 6 defender’s shot, the ball touched Ruben Dias’s foot, changed direction and went into the net in an attempt by goalkeeper Ederson. This goal also ended about 10 hours and 8 minutes of keeping clean sheets in all competitions for teachers and coach Pep Guardiola.

The pressure was increased by the homeowner in the second half. Man City tried all attacks, from kicking, crossing the wings, but could not make a difference in the determination and roll of West players.

De Bruyne played hard, Sergio Aguero was also on the pitch. Former Man Utd goalkeeper, Sam Johnstones, became the hero of the visitors team with a series of saves. In the second half, the host launched 20 shots, but could not hit the net of the opponent.

India’s long jump queen wins world-class achievement even with just one kidney

Anju Bobby George, who was dubbed the “Queen of the Indian long jump”, shocked the world of athletics with her bronze medal 17 years ago.

17 years after becoming the first and only Indian athlete to “stand on the podium” at the World Athletics Championship, “The Queen of Long Jump” Anju Bobby George surprised many people with the secret she had hidden for years.

Recently on Twitter, the former athlete born in 1977 wrote: “Believe it or not, I have stepped up to the top group in the world when my body has only one kidney, is allergic to pain relievers, numbness foot and many other diseases”.

It happened 17 years ago, at the 2003 IAAF World Athletics Championship in Paris (France), then Anju was 26 years old, the same age as she won the gold medal for ASIAD 2018 in Indonesia with a 6m55 jump. That year, Anja opened his competition with a jump of 6m61 and then finished with his best record of 6m70 to become the first and only Indian athlete to stand at a podium at an athletics tournament of World Athletics Federation. Before that, in 2002, Anja won gold medal ASIAD Busan (Korea) with the achievement of 6m53.

Two years later, at the IAAF World Athletics Final held in Monte Carlo, the athletics award for the best eight athletes in 2005, Anju upgraded the gold medal won in the world tournament that same year in Helsinki (Finland. ) up to the prestigious gold medal. She also represented India at the 2004 Athens Olympics in Greece and won 6th place with her personal best performance of 6m83. Anja was later promoted to 5th place in 2007 because rival Marion Jones (USA) was found to use banned substances.

During her years of long-distance jumping, Anja was coached by her husband, Robert Bobby George. And also called my achievement thanks to “the magic of the coach’s talent”. Anja claims that she is born with only one kidney. The 2001 medical tests showed that, and she still worked hard to achieve the feat in 2003.

Anju Bobby George’s statement caught the attention of Indian and international athletes. Indian sports minister Kiren Rijiju also acknowledged Anju’s remarkable contributions to the country’s sports and called her role model in sport.

Neymar reunites Messi in Man City, the Premier League explodes

Page L’Equipe (France) confirmed that it is not PSG, Man City is a name capable of making the dream of reuniting Messi and Neymar into reality.

Recently, L’Equipe (France) page has just drawn a prospect that makes football fans fall back: Neymar will reunite Lionel Messi in Man City shirt.

The roots began after the match between MU and PSG in the Champions League group stage, when Neymar suddenly expressed his desire to work with Messi next season. The statement of sub Pele also means, either Neymar bid farewell to PSG to return to Barca, or Messi left the Nou Camp to join the Ligue I. champions.

According to L’Equipe, the scenario of Barca recruiting Neymar is more difficult because “the giants of Catalunya” are in financial trouble. On the other hand, it is unlikely that the team will continue to stick with Messi when there is only 1 year of contract left.

The 33-year-old superstar can freely find a new stop from January, even to avoid losing anything, Barca is ready to sell him to a partner who pays 55 million euros (£ 50 million). Recently, Interim Chairman Carles Tusquets also admitted that he would sell Messi last summer if possible.

The remaining scenario, PSG pleased Neymar and spent money to recruit Messi. However, according to L’Equipe, the leadership of the French team is extremely headache because of a loss of 100 million euros in the 2019/20 season, not to mention preparing to lose another 150 million euros this season.

The Financial Fairness Act (FFP) stipulates that teams are not allowed to lose more than 30 million euros in 3 years. PSG is forced to sell many stars such as Mbappe and Di Maria if he really wants to recruit Messi and “carries” the estimated salary of 80 million euros of M10 in total.

Therefore, L’Equipe affirmed that Man City, a team possessing financial strength equal to PSG, is a name capable of making the Neymar – Messi reunion dream come true.

The leading French newspaper site believes that Man City owners are willing to defy all obstacles in money and the Financial Justice law. The former King of the Premier League won a spectacular victory in a July Financial Fairness lawsuit, only fined 10 million euros instead of a two-year European Cup ban.

Man City almost successfully recruited Messi in the summer transfer period of 2020 if the Argentine superstar did not decide to stay in Barca at the last minute. With the presence of coach Pep Guardiola, “half-green to Manchester” is of course still the most ideal stop for M10.

Now, owning Neymar is no different from explosion, bringing the reputation of Man City and the Premier League to a new level.

The nurse left Maradona in a fateful morning

Diego Maradona entered his bedroom at 7:30 am on November 24, after complaining of fatigue, but the nurse responsible for looking after him did not come with him for an examination.

Dahiana Gisela Madrid, a nurse of the medical care company Medidom, admitted on November 27 that she did not see Diego Maradona sleeping as her original testimonial. She said she had only heard the 60-year-old legend screaming tired, before he went to his bedroom. According to Gisela Madrid, after the sudden death of the “Golden Boy”, she was asked by her employer to report as having a check while Maradona slept.

The San Isidro prosecutor’s office said from the nurse’s second attestation it could be confirmed that Gisela Madrid was the last person to see Maradona alive, around 6:30 a.m. on November 24 when she started her shift. At that time, Gisela Madrid made sure to see Maradona sleeping and breathing normally. The nurse’s cell phone is being checked by the prosecutor, mostly messages reporting work with Medidom, via the WhatsApp app.

Prosecutors also confirmed that the ambulance took 11 minutes to arrive at Maradona’s mansion, according to security camera inspection results and call logs. Before that, Maradona’s lawyer Matias Morla asked to open an investigation with the Swiss Medical company when its ambulance took 30 minutes to be present. According to the investigation results, the first ambulance call from Maradona’s house took place at 12:17 am and the ambulance arrived at 12:28. The person who made the call was Maximiliano Pomgargo, Maradona’s personal assistant and lawyer Morla’s brother-in-law.

Maradona died in a house in the suburbs of Tigre (Buenos Aires), rented by him, after a heart attack on November 25. He died just over half a month after surgery to take a hematoma in the brain. His death left many unanswered questions, from having to rehabilitate in a suburban house instead of a large medical facility, to the fact that he had not received medical care for many hours.

Shocked with the salary Marc Gasol received at LA Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers fans must be surprised when the home team recruited Marc Gasol, but perhaps they were even more surprised with his salary.

Reputable sources simultaneously reported that Marc Gasol accepted the contract with the minimum wage for veterans with over 10 years of experience. LA Lakers will pay only $ 2.56 million a year for the 35-year-old senior.

Although Gasol has turned 35, he is still a quality striker with rich experience, excellent defense and intelligence in his game. GM Rob Pelinka showed his negotiating skills when he persuaded the NBA Best Defense Player of 2013 to receive this salary.

Before that, both the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors wanted to recruit the Gasol brothers. The Warriors are trying to clean up the salary fund to bring the salary to nearly $ 9 million, while the Raptors have the bird right of the Spaniard and can offer higher salaries than any other club. However, both these teams only wanted to sign a 1-year contract, so Marc Gasol nodded at the Lakers’ two-year offer.

However, with the signing of a 2-year contract with the 35-year-old striker, the Lakers will not be entitled to incentives from the NBA. Usually, 1-year contracts with the minimum wage for veterans will only be charged about $ 1.6 million in the salary fund, regardless of the actual amount of the player. However, this long-term contract makes the defending champion directly deducted $ 2.56 million per season from the salary fund

LA Lakers is working to clean up the salary fund to strengthen the squad. If not including Anthony Davis, which has not yet renewed, the Yellow – Purple team currently has only 10 players. To make room for Gasol, they exchanged JaVale McGee for Cleveland Cavaliers for Jordan Bell and Alfonzo McKinnie, players with lower wages.

Marc Gasol was chosen by the Lakers himself in the 2007 Draft period, but he was immediately traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, replacing Pau himself. In the first 10 years of his career, he was the mainstay of the Grizzlies and made several times in the All-Star squad.

In Los Angeles, the 35-year-old will search for his second ring. In 2019, Gasol was traded to the Toronto Raptors and was immediately successful with the NBA Championship beating the Golden State Warriors 4-2 in the Finals series.

Sergio Ramos: The player between good and evil (Part 3)

Fernando Hierro has been the heart of the defense and leader of Real Madrid for 14 years. Like his predecessor, Ramos has been the leader of Los Blancos for a long time.

With Sergio Ramos on the pitch, Real Madrid’s face will be different. It is not that he will guarantee Los Blancos not conceding but simply that they will be much more monster. Moreover, their peers know they have someone who holds their faith in the most critical moments. On Ramos’s body there is a tattoo of the number “92.48”.

This was the moment when he hit the equalizer in the 2014 Champions League final against Atletico Madrid. That moment was decisive, changing the whole situation of this match. Real Madrid then won the Decima and entered the tournament history.

Ramos was indomitable and could not fall. One month after his shoot-up shot indirectly caused Real Madrid to stop in the 2012 Champions League semi-finals, he still confidently performed a Panenka in the Euro semi-final against Portugal. He has the wickedness of a street guy but still exudes a masculine aura representing royal dignity.

Ramos’s current contract with Real Madrid remains valid until June of the following year. According to AS, the leaders of the Spanish royal team just want to sign a new contract with a term of 12 months. They represent a policy of only offering a 1-year extension to players over the age of 30 on the team, regardless of their status and status. It is not known whether the two sides will find a common voice in this matter, but the Madridista just hope to see their captain present in the white shirt for a few more years.

Hierro’s No. 4 shirt at Real Madrid was left blank for two years before Ramos inherited it. Now, people question again when Sergio Ramos leaves, who will inherit the shirt, or rather who will be able to fill the void he left. And so far, they still have not had the answer for themselves.

Sergio Ramos: The player between good and evil (Part 2)

In the 2017 Champions League final, Ramos was lying on the field after being pushed lightly by Juan Cuadrado. The warm Colombian left the field with a red card.

In the 2018 Champions League final, his hand lock caused Mohamed Salah to leave the game with tears. He makes neutral fans and opponents uncomfortable, and Madridista can rest assured if he is on the pitch.

When Real Madrid were conceded three times by a Shakhtar Donetsk missing 10 players because of COVID-19, the Madridista missed Ramos. That match, the 34-year-old midfielder was absent due to injury. When Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus scored twice against Thibaut Courtois in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16 last season, the audience suddenly realized that a midfielder who had confirmed his class like Raphael Varane was also at times like a schoolboy when Ramos isn’t around. That day, the 34-year-old midfielder sat in the stands because he was suspended.

According to Transfermarkt, the Spanish defender is the player with the third number of Real Madrid caps in history. He also only missed 1 more goal to get 100 goals for Los Blancos, equal to the performance of former player Fernando Morientes.

Ramos has long been a living legend for Real Madrid. The goals he scored, many of them, are historic by importance for Los Blancos. Although not born in Madrid, he is the leader of the dressing room, the representative face of the royal team, embodying the immortal spirit of Madridismo inherited from Raul Gonzalez, Guti and Iker Casillas.

In the LaLiga 36th round of the 2004/2005 season, Real Madrid with the Galacticos star marched to the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium of Sevilla. In the 18th minute, the home team enjoyed a free kick from a distance of 30 meters. Central midfielder Renato pushes the ball, 21-year-old defender Sergio Ramos takes a thunderous shot, swirling ball completely defeated Casillas.

In the stands, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez watched the ball go into the net and Ramos was running away in celebration. In the transfer window that summer, he joined the Santiago Bernabeu team for 27 million euros, a record with a Spanish defender. Ramos received the number 4 shirt once worn by the legendary Hierro. And a new legend was born from that time.

Sergio Ramos: The player between good and evil (Part 1)

A few weeks ago, the Spanish team won over Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League.

After the match, Sergio Ramos posted on social media a video clip of a situation where Swiss striker Ruben Vargas held the ball to attack on the left flank of the Spanish penalty area. At this point, Ramos turned sideways, hooked back with his right foot, hit the ball and released a dangerous attack from the opponent.

“Access denied”, the Spanish defender wrote a caption in English with this video. A stunt that shows a high level of confidence but is really beautiful when it is successfully executed.

Recently, Ramos made a similar ball, and the opponent is Lionel Messi, a person much tougher than Ruben Vargas. 90 + 4 minutes, the Argentine superstar held the ball from home, Barcelona pushed the team up and Real Madrid pulled down. Ramos ran back and watched Messi.

In a decisive moment, he raised his hand to his teammates and then accelerated, rushing towards the ball. Like the situation facing Vargas, he turned horizontally compared to Messi and then used his right foot to jerk back. The ball was broken out of the Barca captain’s feet.

That ball was a highlight of Sergio Ramos in the last El Clasico match. And of course, it is impossible not to mention the situation that gave Real Madrid a penalty after causing Clement Lenglet to be blasted for a shirt-pulling foul. Barca side said why Lenglet pulled his shirt forward, but Ramos fell back.

 But somehow, the captain of Real Madrid is always a master of “dark art” in such controversial situations. A player who has received 26 red cards in his career, but is not a power defender who only knows how to cut iron. It is a master lurking between light and darkness, making the world admire his excellent handling but also receives many attacks because of the situations he makes the opponent stand up to complain the referee in anger.
