Londoner Sam Poch was anticipating the thrill of the big screen lighting up as he waited on Monday to enter a cinema on Leicester Square - a once routine experience that has not been possible for months because of COVID-19 restrictions. The 31-year-old content producer was among the first arriving to watch a film the old-fashioned way as cinemas in England reopened their doors as part of the latest stage in the government's phased lockdown relaxation plan. Across England, Wales and parts of Scotland, indoor entertainment venues were welcoming back audiences after several months of closure, albeit operating at 50 percent capacity, with social distancing and other safety measures in place.

"There's guys out here that have had way more experience on this golf course than I have," said Morikawa, recalling Rory McIlroy's stunning PGA Championship win by eight strokes there in 2012.

A fresh Kevin De Bruyne is essential to Belgium’s cause at next month’s European Championship and coach Roberto Martinez is therefore sending him on holiday before the tournament starts. The Manchester City talisman will join the Belgium squad only five days before their first Group B match against Russia in St Petersburg on June 12 – a calculated risk Martinez says he is taking to ensure his key midfielder is raring to go. But because De Bruyne is playing in the Champions League final for City against his old club Chelsea in Porto on May 29, he is not required by Martinez until June 7.

Early indications are that vaccines are protecting the elderly against the variant of concern first found in India and most of the people hospitalised with COVID-19 after contracting it have not been vaccinated, Britain's health minister said on Monday. Matt Hancock said there were 2,323 confirmed cases of the B.1.617.2 variant, and in the north-west town of Bolton, the majority of the 19 who had been hospitalised had not been vaccinated even though they were eligible. "This shows the new variant is not tending to penetrate into older vaccinated, groups, and it underlines again the importance of getting the jab," Hancock told parliament.

The streaming video industry got even more cutthroat, Monday… when U.S. telecoms giant AT&T - owner of HBO and Warner Bros studios - announced it would spin off its massive media empire to combine with the Discovery network, creating a standalone global streaming giant. Discovery President and CEO David Zaslav will lead the proposed new company, which will merge the likes of HBO, CNN and Warner Bros. Studios - including the Harry Potter and Batman franchises - with Discovery's trove of unscripted shows. The name of this new company will be disclosed by next week. It will be 71% owned by AT&T's shareholders and 29% by Discovery’s. The deal marks the unwinding of AT&T’s $108.7 billion acquisition of U.S. media conglomerate Time Warner in 2018, where AT&T sought to create a media and telecoms powerhouse… and underscores At&t’s recognition that TV viewership has moved to streaming, where scale is required to take on the likes of Netflix and Walt Disney. It was a costly strategy for AT&T, which - at the same time - sought to expand next generation wireless services. Now AT&T says it will use the $43 billion proceeds from the tax-free spin-off of its media assets to pay down its more than $160 billion of debt. The deal is anticipated to close in mid-2022.
