The popstar is in Haiti this week as part of a United Nations humanitarian visit – given the name ‘Bey Good’ – to see what progress the country has made since an earthquake hit its capital in 2010.
Wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with her BegGOOD charity’s logo, the 33-year-old was greeted by a group of Chileans who shouted “Chile” at her as she and her entourage disembarked the plane.
And in typically elegant fashion, she didn’t break stride as she turned to the fans and replied “Arturo Vidal.”
Speaking about the South American side’s midfield maestro was obviously a very smart way to get theRead More »from Beyonce meets Chile fans, impresses with her knowledge of Arturo Vidal
Brian Butler was chuffed to bits when he made an ace in a golf tournament and even more delighted when he heard there was a prize - but his joy didn't last long.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Wed, May 20, 2015 14:28 BST
You can imagine Brian Butler's delight when he bagged an ace at a small amateur tournament called the Benarus Open. The odds against making a hole-in-one have been calculated as just under 40,000-1 for amateur golfers, meaning that many players go through their entire lives without experiencing that perfect shot.
But Butler hadn't even stopped celebrating as he came off the green at the 158-yard 18th hole at a course called The Preserve in Rhode Island when he had even better news: the ace carried with it a special prize of $10,000 - that's £6,500.

Think all top-flight footballers are millionaires who get to spend their later years by the pool in Spain? Think again.By Eurosport | World of Sport – Wed, May 20, 2015 13:06 BST
Former Southampton, Leeds and Blackpool star Brett Ormerod has had a storied professional career in English football. He's plied his trade for a dozen clubs up and down the country, in all four of the top divisions - gracing the turf at everywhere from Wembley and Old Trafford to Accrington Stanley's Crown Ground.
Given his longevity, and the fact that he spent several seasons in the top flight and many more in the Championship, you'd think that the 38-year-old would have trousered enough in his career to retire comfortably.
You'd be wrong. As his playing career rumbles to a close - he isRead More »from Ex-Premier League striker Brett Ormerod opening sandwich shop in Blackburn

The Barcelona and Argentina star has been immortalised in waxWorld of Sport – Wed, May 20, 2015 10:31 BST
Madame Tussauds in New York has unveiled a new waxwork of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
According to the chap in the video below, Madame Tussauds took over 250 measurements and took up to four months to create the likeness of Messi.
“The hair alone took about six weeks,” he says.
Which makes it rather unfortunate that Messi has since changed his cut a couple of times at least since then.
That's just cruel, Leo. Just cruel.Read More »from Lionel Messi ruins six weeks of work for waxwork artist as likeness unveiled at Madame Tussauds

Marcos, our friend, what a hat-trick!
Put simply, this is the best hat-trick you will see all season.Read More »from Marcos Fabian scores best hat-trick you will see this year

Zinedine Zidane is an all-time footballing great – of that there is no question.
Trying to emulate their father’s greatness will be quite the task for his four sons - Enzo, Luca, Theo and Elyaz. All four are currently on the books of Real Madrid.
His second son Luca currently plies his trade with Real Madrid's Under 17s Juvenil B team as a goalkeeper, and is said to be highly thought of.
He is also the starting goalkeeper for France’s U17 team.
And Luca starred – in more way than one - as that France team made it into the final of the UEFA Under 17 Championship on Tuesday.
