Zlatan Ibrahimovic won Swedish football's Golden Ball for a record-extending 12th time and Chelsea's Magdalena Eriksson received her first Diamond Ball as the country crowned its best players of the year in on online awards ceremony on Monday. Sweden's record scorer with 62 goals in 116 internationals, the 39-year-old Ibrahimovic has been in superb form for AC Milan, leading the jury to award him his first Golden Ball since 2016, the year he retired from the national team. "A huge thank you - I believe everything is possible if you just believe in it and you invest a lot of time and hard work," Ibrahimovic said in a video interview, adding that he hoped to see fans back at games soon.

It may never be known whether Donald Trump truly believed he won the 2020 US election, or if the last two weeks have been an extended face-saving exercise. Some senior Republicans, who have remained publicly silent, viewed the president's legal assault on the electoral system as akin to a tantrum, or to him working through the various stages of grief. Whatever his motivation, the president's decision on Monday to accept the formal transition process marked the end of an extraordinary interregnum. It began on Nov 7 when all major US television networks "called" the election for Joe Biden. At this point, it is traditional for one candidate to concede, although it is simply a custom. Instead, Mr Trump began making allegations of widespread voter fraud, and assembled a legal team to overturn counts in various battleground states. Three dozen cases were filed in six states. The vast majority were rejected by a judge, or withdrawn. Not a single case of voter fraud was upheld by a court. One legal expert described the strategy as like "throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks, which I tell my law students is never a good strategy." Mr Trump became increasingly frustrated with his legal team. But the frustration went both ways, and several lawyers withdrew from representing him in court. Rudy Giuliani, Mr Trump's personal lawyer, seized control. His all-out attack culminated in a bizarre, hour-long press conference on Nov 19. The claims Mr Giuliani made about voter fraud were overshadowed when black hair dye rolled down his cheeks. At the same event Sidney Powell, another firebrand lawyer, made claims including that voting software had been created at the direction of late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Mr Giuliani later distanced himself from her, saying Ms Powell was "not a member of the Trump Legal Team". Then, on Monday, a number of things collided to force Mr Trump's hand. Rush Limbaugh, the massively popular conservative radio talk show host, and friend of the president, issued a rare attack. He said: "They promised blockbuster stuff, and then nothing happened. And that’s just not good. If you’re gonna do a press conference like that, with the promise of blockbusters, then there has to be something more." Several more Republican senators broke cover, and said it was time to move on. Lamar Alexander, the Tennessee senator, and a close friend of Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell, publicly urged Mr Trump to "put the country first". More than 100 business leaders signed a letter calling for a smooth transition. Wall Street investor and presidential ally Steve Schwarzman, said the outcome was "very certain". The same day Michigan certified its election result in favour of Mr Biden, and so did many counties in Pennsylvania. Mr Trump was in the Oval Office on Monday when his chief of staff Mark Meadows, and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, appeared for what appears to have been a crunch meeting. Jay Sekulow, Mr Trump's personal lawyer, was reportedly on the phone. It was reportedly decided that Mr Trump would never need to formally concede, but could begin the transition. Since the election was called Emily Murphy, an appointee of Mr Trump as Administrator of the General Services Administration, had not officially declared the transition could begin, as is required under the Presidential Transition Act of 1963. Ms Murphy, 47, reported receiving "thousands of threats" to herself, her family, staff, and even her pets in the last few weeks. On Monday, after 16 days, she finally wrote to the Biden campaign. to say she had made the decision, and that it was hers alone. However, in tweets sent just minutes after news of Ms Murphy's letter was made public, the president suggested it was he who had urged the start of the transition. He struck an unexpectedly conciliatory tone, and in language remarkably similar to that used by senior Republican senators, said it was "in the best interest of our country."

Donald Trump is preparing for a new life at Mar-a-Lago after giving a 64-second press conference in which he did not mention the election at all. In an impromptu appearance at the White House, Mr Trump celebrated a new stock market record, and said he was "very thrilled" by new coronavirus vaccines. He went on to "congratulate" people within his administration who "worked so hard," and "most importantly the people of our country because there are no people like you." The president declined to answer any questions, including whether he would concede defeat. Meanwhile, it emerged that renovations of living areas are underway for Mr Trump, and his wife Melania, at Mar-a Lago, his club in Palm Beach, Florida. Secret Service agents in the president's protective detail have also been quietly asked if they want to relocate there. Former presidents receive Secret Service protection for life, and the agency's Miami office will look at whether further security infrastructure is required at the resort. Mr Trump changed his permanent residence from New York to Florida last year.
Over the course of his career, “Jeopardy” host Alex Trebek has made one thing clear: he never intended the popular trivia show to stop if he wasn’t able to host anymore. Since his death from pancreatic cancer a few weeks ago, rumors have been flying about who might replace him, either as an interim or permanent host.The most obvious name thrown around has been Ken Jennings, the 74-game streak, $2.5 million dollar winner who also recently claimed the title of “Jeopardy” GOAT in a recent tournament. Given that Jennings recently signed on a consultant, it’s no surprise that the show has announced he’ll be the first in a series of guest hosts to lead “Jeopardy” before a permanent replacement for Trebek is confirmed.Jennings clearly has all the makings of a good host: he knows his material, he was close with Trebek during his time on the show, and he now has experience working behind the scenes. But that doesn’t mean everyone is on board with his new gig. Actress Yvette Nicole Brown spoke out about her feelings towards “Jeopardy’s” host choice, replying with “nope” to the news and bringing up some four year old baggage.Peep his old tweets and get back to me.— yvette nicole brown (@YNB) November 24, 2020For context, here’s what Brown is referring to: Back in 2018, Jennings apparently made an ableist tweet where he noted that there was “nothing sadder than a hot person in a wheelchair.” Despite the fact Jennings followed up on the tweet, citing it as not being intentionally harmful, he never deleted it. And now, thanks to the tweet resurfacing, he’s coming under fire from the disabled community for his comments.Also Read: 'Jeopardy!' to Rotate 'Interim Guest Hosts,' Starting With Ken JenningsI never did a public flogging thing for this but I did apologize personally to angry/hurt people who reached out personally. it was a joke so inept that it meant something very different in my head & I regret the ableist plain reading of it!— Ken Jennings (@KenJennings) April 20, 2018“Not sure I’ll be able to watch Jeopardy after learning what an ableist-trash heap Ken Jennings is,” tweeted Rebecca Cokley, director of the Disability Justice Initiative at the Center for American Progress. She’s not alone in her thoughts. See more reactions to Jennings’ tweet below.Ah, I see @Jeopardy has chosen Ken Jennings as first interim host.Alex Trebek was it kind, goodhearted man.Ken is a bully who thinks it's fun to mock people with disabilities.Then double down when called out instead of apologizing.Bad choice, Jeopardy. pic.twitter.com/aT6AdP8cbs— Steven Spohn (Spawn) (@stevenspohn) November 24, 2020Ken Jennings could delete this tweet right now if he wanted. In the meantime, I recommend against being his fan. https://t.co/jVNCUp0Upm— David M. Perry (@Lollardfish) November 24, 2020I called Ken Jennings out on this tweet years ago but it still stings.My entire adult life men have told me, "you're hot for someone in a wheelchair"The desexualization of disabled women & ableist attacks like this are why we struggle. https://t.co/UsIhRtRjwI— Kristen Parisi (@Kris10Parisi) November 24, 2020.@KenJennings has been named interim @Jeopardy host.
