The daily number of new coronavirus infections in France stayed above 20,000 on average for the fourth straight day on Tuesday while hospitalisations reached an eight-week high of 27,041, increasing fears of a third national lockdown. President Emmanuel Macron still hopes a 6 p.m. curfew put in place 11 days ago will be enough to rein in the surge in new cases caused by the emergence of more contagious variants of the virus. Despite calls from some doctors and medics for a new lockdown, government minister Agnes Pannier-Runacher said earlier there was no need to make a decision on such a measure at this stage.

The Writers Guild of America and William Morris Endeavor have agreed to postpone their upcoming federal trial until February 2022 as the two sides continue to work towards a deal to sign a franchise agreement that will allow the Hollywood agency to represent writers again and end an industry dispute over packaging fees and agency-affiliated production companies that dates back to 2018. In court documents obtained by TheWrap, attorneys for both sides filed a request to push back the trial six months from its previous trial date of August 24. The trial stems from a lawsuit filed by WME, CAA, and UTA last summer accusing the Writers Guild of participating in an illegal boycott by having its members terminate their representation with any agency that does not agree to phase out packaging fees, payments from a studio to an agency in exchange for packaging talent on a project that have been called a conflict of interest by the WGA. Since then, every agency except WME has signed a franchise agreement requiring them to phase out packaging fees by June 30, 2022; including CAA and UTA, which have withdrawn from the lawsuit. The major sticking point between WME and WGA is the agency’s controlling interest in affiliate production studio Endeavor Content. The franchise agreement requires agencies and any private equity firms that own those agencies, such as WME’s equity owners Silver Lake, to hold no more than a combined 20% share in an affiliate production studio. The two sides have been at odds over how the agency should adhere to this rule, leading WME to request federal judge Andre Birotte Jr. to order the guild to end the boycott. Birotte refused, saying that federal law prohibits judges from intervening in non-violent labor disputes. Pamela Chelin contributed to this report.

Israel's top general said on Tuesday that its military was refreshing its operational plans against Iran and that any U.S. return to a 2015 nuclear accord with Tehran would be "wrong." The remarks are an apparent signal to U.S. President Joe Biden to tread cautiously in any diplomatic engagement with Iran. Such comments by Israel's military chief of staff on U.S. policymaking are rare and likely would have been pre-approved by the Israeli government.

Leeds United wingers Raphinha and Jack Harrison secured a 2-1 win at Newcastle United on Tuesday, piling more pressure on Magpies manager Steve Bruce after the north-east club's poor Premier League run stretched to nine games without a win. With seven defeats in those nine, the result left Newcastle 16th on 19 points from 20 games, seven points above the drop zone, while Leeds stayed 12th on 26 from 19 after ending their three-game winless streak in all competitions. Leeds also failed to score during that run and Harrison pointed out that manager Marcelo Bielsa had asked his side to show grit against Newcastle, who seem to be heading into a relegation battle after another poor performance.
