WATCH: Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho takes a fall outside Wembley stadium

LONDON: In an allegory for his recent woes at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho suffered a fall at Wembley, tripping over a rope outside the stadium.
Mourinho attempted to hurdle a rope but ended up taking a tumble in front of fans who caught the unfortunate incident on their phones, before he was helped to his feet by a steward.


The Portuguese was at Wembley to watch four of his United players — David De Gea, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw, who suffered a serious head injury during the game — in action for England against Spain in their Nations League opener.
The 55-year-old is under pressure at Old Trafford after suffering back-to-back defeats before the international break.
United are back in action in the Premier League on Saturday when they travel to Watford.

Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori get ready to serve up the action in Dubai championship

DUBAI: With the women’s tournament now over for another year, it is the turn of the men to wow the crowds in Dubai, with the men’s ATP event getting underway in the emirate this weekend.
The tournament has traditionally attracted some of the biggest names in the sport, with Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray all having played in the past.
The 2019 entry list is no different, with Roger Federer, Marin Cilic, Kei Nishikori, Karen Khachanov and Stefanos Tsitsipas all on show this week.
World No. 6 and top-seeded Nishikori will get his tournament up and running against Frenchman Benoit Paire, while second seed Roger Federer — seven-time champion in Dubai who last won the title in 2015 — will face German Philipp Kohlschreiber.
Croatian Marin Clilc has arguably the toughest opening match against the recent Rotterdam Open winner Gael Monfils.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, who shocked Federer at the Australian Open, begins his campaign against the Australian Matt Eden.
Other notable first round ties see Tomas Berdych up against Aljaz Bedene and last year’s champion Roberto Bautista Agut playing India’s Ramkumar Ramanathan.
Federer, apart from chasing an eighth title in what is likely to be his Swanson in Dubai, will also be hoping for victory next weekend to claim his 100th title on the ATP tour.
Nishikori, however, will be out to stop the Swiss ace and claim the $565,000 winner’s prize and his second title of the year having won the Brisbane International last month.
