England captain Eoin Morgan said there was nothing untoward about a new system of signals from analysts in the dressing room used to send messages to him on the field during limited overs internationals. "It is 100 percent within the spirit of the game," he told a news conference on Thursday as England looked ahead to the start of their three-match One Day International series against South Africa at Newlands on Friday. The system was used as England swept the three Twenty 20 internationals against South Africa with England’s analyst Nathan Lemon placing a series of large numbers or letters on clipboards, that were visible from the field, and were meant to help Morgan in his decision-making.

The promise of COVID-19 vaccines is "phenomenal" and "potentially game-changing", Hans Kluge, the World Health Organization's regional director for Europe, told a briefing on Thursday. Speaking from Copenhagen, he said supplies were expected to be very limited in the early stages and countries must decide who gets priority, though the WHO said there is "growing consensus" that first recipients should be older people, medical workers and people with co-morbidities. Britain approved Pfizer Inc's COVID-19 vaccine on Wednesday, jumping ahead of the rest of the world in the race to begin the most crucial mass inoculation programme in history.
Britain should raise its 2030 emissions-reduction target to at least a 68% cut on 1990 levels to help it meet its goals under the Paris climate agreement, the government's climate advisers said on Thursday. Britain currently has a target of cutting emissions by 57% by 2030, and last year it became the first G7 country to set in law a net zero emissions target by 2050, which will require wholesale changes in the way Britons travel, use energy and eat. It must also submit a plan called a nationally determined contribution (NDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change outlining how it will cut emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.

China on Thursday accused critics in the U.S. government of “an escalation of political suppression” against Beijing following a report of new visa restrictions on members of China’s ruling Communist Party and their immediate family members. Foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said China would “make representations” to the U.S. following the report Thursday in the New York Times that such people would be limited to one-month, single-entry visas. Hua called Washington’s approach “totally inconsistent with the U.S.’s own interests,” and said it would damage America’s global image.

The investigation into a 70-year-old Swedish woman detained this week on suspicion of imprisoning her adult son for nearly three decades will be closed, Stockholm prosecutors said on Thursday. No evidence of illegal imprisonment was found in the apartment where the man in his 40s was discovered and his injuries could not be attributed to inflicted violence, prosecutor Emma Olsson told Reuters. "Our forensic investigation of the apartment did not find signs which suggested the man was held there against his will," she said.
England's COVID-19 test and trace system has stopped trying to contact under-18s separately to ask them to self-isolate if a parent says they will tell their child, helping to boost the proportion of contacts of cases successfully traced. After weeks near a record low of around 60% of contacts of positive cases being successfully traced, 72.5% percent of the 246,604 people identified as a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the week to Nov 25. "This operational improvement has resulted in an increase in the proportion of contacts reached, and the proportion reached within 24 hours."
U.S. President Donald Trump's pardoning of his former adviser Michael Flynn has fueled speculation over whether the president could pardon other associates, and even members of his family, during his final weeks in office.

The Times also said Trump has asked advisers about the possibility of "preemptively" pardoning his three eldest children.
France will on Thursday start investigating dozens of mosques suspected of fomenting Islamist ideology to combat the rising threat of religious extremism, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said. The government has launched what it calls an unprecedented action against "separatism" following several Islamist attacks in France this autumn, including the beheading of a teacher who had shown his class caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad. Darmanin said 76 mosques out of the more than 2,600 Muslim places of worship had been flagged as possible threats to France's Republican values and its security.
