    Brazil, which will host the 2016 Olympics, is in the midst of an outbreak of the mosquito-borne virus.

    A health worker in Brazil calls out to residents to remain inside during fumigation to eradicate the mosquito which transmits the Zika virus.

    The International Olympic Committee announced a plan on Friday to help keep Zika-carrying mosquitoes away from Olympic venues during the 2016 Summer Olympic games in Rio De Janeiro.

    Workers will conduct daily inspections for and remove puddles of stagnant water that could attract the infected mosquitoes. Zika is a mosquito-borne virus with mild symptoms that has been linked to thousands of cases of birth defects in Brazil.

    The IOC said Friday it is "closely monitoring the situation with Zika in Brazil. We are also in close communication with the WHO and the Rio 2016 Organizing Committee on this topic." The IOC asserted that "the Rio 2016 Games will take place during the winter months of August and September, when the drier, cooler climate significantly reduces the presence of mosquitoes and therefore the risk of infection."

    "We remain confident that there will be a safe environment for successful and enjoyable Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro," said the IOC.

    In a statement, United States Olympic Committee spokesperson Patrick Sandusky said:

    We are closely monitoring the situation through the CDC and have ongoing contact with the International Olympic Committee, the organizing officials in Rio, the World Health Organization and infectious disease specialists with expertise in tropical diseases, including the Zika virus. Additionally, we're taking steps to ensure that our delegation and those affiliated with Team USA are aware of the CDC's recommendations regarding travel to Brazil.

    On Wednesday, the World Health Organization said that 3 to 4 million people in South and North America could become infected with the Zika virus in the next 12 months. In Brazil, the Zika virus has been linked to about 3,500 babies being born with a defect known as microcephaly, which causes the baby to have an abnormally small brain.

    Germany's Angelique Kerber and Serena Williams after the match.

    Angelique Kerber has upset Serena Williams in three sets to win the Australian Open title in a surprise victory.

    The German tennis star defeated Williams 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, ending the six-time champion's unbeaten streak in finals at Melbourne Park, AP reported.

    Williams was the favorite to win the Australian Open, where she had won all six previous times she'd reached the final, and was trying to equal Steffi Graf's Open-era record of 22 Grand Slam singles titles.

    The 34-year-old Williams hadn't lost a set in the first six rounds here until dropping the first on Saturday night against No. 7 seed Kerber, who was playing in her first major final.

    The Cleveland Browns player was allegedly part of a “disturbance” in Dallas Friday night, and has not been arrested.

    Scott Eklund / AP

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel may have been involved in an altercation with his ex-girlfriend on Friday night in Dallas, according to a police report.

    The woman called Fort Worth Police just before 2 a.m. Saturday and told officers that she had been involved in a "disturbance" with Manziel, her ex-boyfriend, according to a statement provided to BuzzFeed News by Fort Worth police.

    Authorities determined after a preliminary investigation that "a possible assault had occurred" in Dallas or elsewhere outside of Fort Worth.

    The two cities' departments are now working together to find out if Manziel committed a criminal offense.

    A Dallas Police spokesperson told BuzzFeed News in an email that officers were in the early stages of the investigation and could not comment further.

    Manziel's ex-girlfriend also told Fort Worth officers that she was concerned for his "well-being." The officer attempted to contact Manziel and eventually confirmed that he was safe and not in danger.

    Last October, Manziel was stopped by police in Ohio for reckless driving. His ex-girlfriend, who was in the car with him that night, accused him of assaulting her. Police said they determined the woman was intoxicated and allowed the couple to continue.

    The 23-year-old NFL player also has a history of alcohol abuse. He voluntarily entered a rehabilitation facility in January 2015 for four months.

    The Cleveland Browns did not immediately return a request for comment.

    More than 40 top flight tennis matches were identified by bookies as ‘suspicious’ in a three-month period in 2015, a new investigation into match-fixing in the sport has claimed.

    Julian Smith / AAPIMAGE


    One of the matches identified as suspicious was described by a bookies as the ‘weirdest match ever’, while at least four of the players involved in the allegedly dodgy games competed at this year’s Australian Open, according to the investigation aired tonight by the ABC’s Four Corners.

    International gambling outfits have a ‘blacklist’ of more than 350 professional tennis players who are considered too risky for bookmakers to offer odds on.

    One former pro player and coach said that match-fixing remains a ‘major problem’ in tennis, especially for young up-and-coming players on the lower-tier circuit.

    “I think match fixing is a major part of tennis as we sit here and speak,” Jay Salter told the program.

    “I think it’s always been talked about as I was a young 18, 19-year-old junior coming through trying to make ends meet. It has also come up in being a coach, with young guys that I coach that say ‘look these offers have been made. What do you think, Should I do it? Should I go down that path?’,” he said.

    “The experts would be correct to say that it’s a big problem.”

    Salter’s comments come a week after Australian former pro Nick Lindahl pleaded guilty to deliberately losing a match at a tournament in the country town of Toowoomba in 2013 in order to obtain financial advantage.

    Sydney’s Burwood Local Court heard that when police asked Lindahl why he had tanked the match, the former World No. 187 said: “that’s what tennis players do.”

    Richard Ings, a former ATP executive in charge of rules, told the program that tennis is the perfect sport to fix.

    “The line between winning a match and losing a match is very small,” Ings said. “All it takes is one backhand that misses the baseline by a couple of inches, a second serve fault on a big break point and a player has lost a match 6-3, 6-4 and in so doing can lose the match without any suspicion at all that the player actually threw the outcome.”

    “I would not be surprised at all if there were many, many, many dozens of matches across all levels of tennis which have suspicious betting patterns every year.”

    The revelations come after tennis authorities last week announced they would set up an independent investigation into the Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU), following a BuzzFeed News/BBC investigation, which showed that the sport’s governing bodies were repeatedly warned, but failed to act, on significant evidence of match-fixing at the top levels of the sport.

    Speaking to Four Corners, International Tennis Federation David Haggerty flatly denied the sport has a match-fixing problem and pledged that the TIU would investigate all claims of corruption in the sport.

    A brief lesson in how a suit jacket should fit.

    Cam Newton is the Carolina Panthers quarterback and is probably going to win the Super Bowl. But the dude cannot dress himself. And it's sad.

    Cam Newton is the Carolina Panthers quarterback and is probably going to win the Super Bowl. But the dude cannot dress himself. And it's sad.

    Newton arrived in California this weekend to prepare for the NFL championship, wearing these loud-ass Versace pants, and people are tripping.

    David J. Phillip / AP

    The pants themselves are pretty baller. A smaller dude, like, idk, Usher, could pull these off.

    It's that the pants don't actually fit.

    It's that the pants don't actually fit.

    A: The crotch is going to get blown out after literally an hour. Pants shouldn't be this tight.

    B: Pants should not hug your knees and calves. You should be able to bend your knee. One high step and Cam's gonna bust out of these things.

    C: This crop isn't quite as bad as we've seen from Cam before. But pants should break at the top of the ankle.

    But Cam's pants weren't even the most offensive thing on the tarmac.

    Brazil officials this week also insisted that they will not call off the summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro because of the Zika virus outbreak.

    Felipe Dana / AP

    Addressing the ongoing Zika virus outbreak, the International Olympic Committee on Tuesday said it was working with health officials to minimize the risk to athletes and visitors when the summer games kick off Rio de Janeiro in August.

    In a statement to BuzzFeed News, the International Olympic Committee said it was working with health officials to minimize the risk to athletes and visitors in Rio.

    "We welcome the action taken by the WHO to deal with this issue. We remain in close contact with them and are following their guidance.

    We are working with our partners in Rio on measures to deal with the pools of stagnant water around the Olympic venues, where the mosquitos breed, to minimize the risk of visitors coming into contact with them.

    It is also important to note that the Rio 2016 Games will take place during the winter months of August and September, when the drier, cooler climate significantly reduces the presence of mosquitos and therefore the risk of infection."

    The statement came one day after the World Health Organization officially declared the outbreak a global health emergency. The virus, which may cause mild flu-like symptoms in some people, has been linked to birth defects, miscarriage, and stillborn infants. There is no vaccine or cure.

    Brazil officials on Monday also insisted that they would not call off the games, although the president's chief of staff, citing the Zika outbreak, did say pregnant women should not travel to the event.

    "The risk, which I would say is serious, is for pregnant women," Jaques Wagner, chief of staff to President Dilma Rousseff, told reporters on Monday.

    The Centers for Disease Control last month warned pregnant women from traveling to areas experiencing an outbreak of the virus.

    Despite the warnings, Wagner said those who are not pregnant should not be afraid to attend the games when they go on as scheduled in August.

    "We have to explain to those coming to Brazil, the athletes, that there is zero risk if you are not a pregnant woman," Wagner said.

    SAN JOSE, California — Broncos guard Evan Mathis stood quietly at the back of Peyton Manning’s media scrum at Super Bowl Opening Night, iPhone camera raised and pointed at his quarterback.

    “I’m just checking out the circus,” said Mathis, who is the only player appearing in Super Bowl 50 next week to have played for the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.

    Monday night’s event at the SAP Center in San Jose, California, was indeed circus-like: a chaotic mix of the Super Bowl’s biggest stars being asked the same questions over and over, a lamé-clad cover band, and the fans who paid to watch the spectacle.

    It's unclear what purpose Opening Night — formerly known as Media Day — still serves, aside from promoting the NFL’s brand on primetime television. The NFL knows fans will watch any league event with interest (the Pro Bowl excluded). Television ratings are not yet available for Opening Night, but $27 spectator seats for the event sold out ahead of time.

    At Opening Night, each Super Bowl team hosted seven players and their head coach at individual podiums spread out across the stadium floor. The teams’ marquee players were introduced as if they were taking the field ahead of a game, as they walked out along a decorative “Golden Gate Bridge” to the cheers of thousands of fans.

    Lindsey Adler/BuzzFeed News

    NFL reporters mixed with people who’d obtained press credentials and came dressed in drag, spandex, and team jerseys. At the front of the crowd surrounding Manning, who is set to make his fourth Super Bowl appearance next week, a man held a puppet in front of the quarterback and mimicked the quarterback’s responses in a cartoonish voice as if the puppet were speaking.

    Earlier that day, NFL Network reported that Manning had told friends that Super Bowl 50 would be the last game of his 18-year career. Manning, who rightfully expected to field dozens of questions about his possible retirement came prepared: “Yeah, I haven’t made up my mind, but I don’t see myself knowing that until after the season, like I said earlier,” Manning told reporters. “Whatever cliché you want to use, but I kind of stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand and just deal with this week; that’s what I’ve done all season.”

    Meanwhile, Manning’s teammates were asked mostly about their experiences playing with the revered quarterback and if they had any clue about his plans after the Super Bowl. Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders wouldn’t speculate either way on Manning’s future in the NFL, offering: “We don’t know what’s going to happen. If it is, that’s going to be awesome for him to ride off into the sunset.”

    At his podium, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas held up a photo of himself as an infant that a stranger had given him that day. “I think I’m gonna keep it,” he joked.

    For over an hour, Thomas answered questions about his mother, whose life sentence in prison was recently commuted by President Obama. She was able to see him play football for the first time last month when the Broncos faced the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Divisional round. The second game she attends will be the Super Bowl.

    “She hasn’t been around a lot of people, especially like it’ll be right now for the Super Bowl. I think she’ll be fine, but it’ll be a little different,” Thomas said. “There’s going to be so many people and she’s not used to it. I’m sure if anybody notices her, they’re probably going to try to bother her or say something to her. Hopefully nobody asks her too many questions or wants to do too much stuff. That’s the main thing.”

    An announcement was made that there would be only two minutes left of Broncos media availability. Television producers riled up the spectators for camera shots while reporters strained to hear players answer their final questions. During this time, Thomas leaned in as a reporter from Mexico asked him if he liked Mexican food, likely the most unique question he’d heard all night. A bit confused, Thomas answered in the affirmative.

    “What kind of Mexican food? Enchiladas?”

    With Thomas still confused, the reporter changed strategies with the last seconds of availability. “Can you say anything in Spanish?”

    “Um, yeah! I can say ‘hola!’” Thomas said in amusement before a Broncos staffer liberated him from the podium.

    Soon, it was the Panthers’ turn. After their round of play introductions, quarterback Cam Newton, whom Manning had enthusiastically called the season MVP, took the center stage with his signature smile and Gatorade-brand towel wrapped in a du-rag around his head.

    “Some people call it a bandana,” he joked.

    Earlier this week, Newton told reporters he is “an African-American quarterback that may scare a lot of people because they haven’t seen nothing that they can compare me to.” Newton’s proclamation was simply making clear what has been spoken of in code and criticism during his five-year NFL career.

    Newton, an athletic quarterback who scored 10 rushing touchdowns himself during the 2015 season, celebrates his scores by dancing in the end zone — a longtime NFL tradition rarely seen by quarterbacks. His fun with the game is often interpreted as showmanship, much to the ire of traditionalist football fans who believe team leaders should demonstrate modesty against their opponents. The criticism against Newton was best exemplified in a November letter to the editor published by the Charlotte Observer in which a mother said Newton looked like “a spoiled brat” while celebrating a late-game touchdown over the Titans.

    On Monday night Newton was repeatedly asked why his touchdown celebrations are so divisive among football fans: “I don’t know, but I guess you’ll have to get used to it, because I don’t plan on changing,” the 26-year-old responded.

    Newton, an Atlanta native, spoke of his childhood aspirations to play in the NFL:

    “Just to play in the Super Bowl, one, and to win a Super Bowl. That was the big dream of mine. I remember when the Super Bowl was in Atlanta and Steve McNair was there, one of my idols growing up, one of many idols. It just goes to show you that this is a game of inches. He threw the slant at the end and reached out and didn’t get it, one of my all-time favorite Super Bowl moments. Yet that just makes you prepare even more so that you’ll be on the winning side of the pendulum.”

    The crowd around Newton was captivated by his answers, many of which went beyond the regular clichés often offered by players. But Newton soon made his boredom known, and made sure the crowd knew when he knew they were seeing him as just a spectacle. During his availability, Newton was asked to freestyle rap — which he did — and to dance at the podium.

    “Cam, can you teach me how to Dab?” one man asked Newton repeatedly, referring to the dance Newton did during the season.

    “Man, you know how to Dab,” Newton replied, not playing into the request.

    The consensus among the other Panthers players, anecdotally, is that they are bored of being asked to dance.

    “Everyone just wants us to Dab now,” said Panthers defensive end Wes Horton. “That’s kind of Cam’s thing, not really ours.”

    “It’s like, are we here to talk, or are we here to entertain you?”

    As an announcer called the two-minute warning on Panthers availability, and the spectators began to cheer on producer command, the answer to Horton’s question was not really clear.
