And finally...

Turkish football fans were left shocked when one of the nation's favourite pundits suffered a heart attack during a live broadcast.

Former referee Ahmet Cakar became visibly unwell during a discussion about the match-fixing scandal in Turkish football and keeled over onto the desk to the shock of his fellow panellists. There is no suggestion that he has any connection with the controversy.

Cakar is reported to be in a stable condition in hospital.
