The European governing body for football, UEFA, has confirmed that Wednesday's Europa League final between Manchester United and Ajax will go ahead in Stockholm following a bomb explosion at Manchester Arena in England on Monday evening. Police are treating the incident in Manchester, which resulted in the deaths of at least 22 people whilst injuring 59 others, as a terrorist attack. "UEFA has been closely working with local authorities and the Swedish FA for many months and the terrorist risk had been taken into account since the very beginning of the project," a statement read.
Bookmakers Paddy Power have confirmed they have paid out on bets worth £3,500 made on the timing of John Terry's controversial substitution during his final match for Chelsea. Terry, who will leave Stamford Bridge after 22 years this summer, was subbed after 26 minutes against Sunderland on Sunday (21 May), corresponding with the number he has worn at Chelsea for his entire career. The plan, thought up by the former England captain, was accepted by Sunderland, who agreed to put the ball out of play so Terry could receive a guard of honour from his teammates as he left the pitch.
