The Guardian view on a Covid-19 Christmas: caution and creativity | Editorial
Allowing households to mix could prove costly. People should proceed with care, finding safer ways to celebrate where possible“Call off Christmas.” That three-word, ad-libbed flourish elevated Alan Rickman’s Sheriff of Nottingham to the pantheon of classic movie villains. This is a country where tree decorations can appear for sale in August. The discussion over what will happen this winter seems to have lasted almost as long. No politician – least of all Boris Johnson – would relish cancelling festivities as Oliver Cromwell once did.After a hard year, and a second lockdown, many people long for even the illusion of normality, and for the chance to be with those they love and have seen much less of than usual. Some relish the news that the UK’s Covid-19 restrictions will be loosened, with up to three households allowed to mix for a five-day period. Continue reading...

This autumn and winter they are enduring an invasion of celebrities and TV types, who have descended en masse to film a Celtic version of I’m a Celebrity ...

Diego Maradona obituary
Prodigiously skilled footballer who captained Argentina to victory in the 1986 World CupReligious faith is a psychological prop for many a footballer, but Diego Maradona, who has died aged 60 after suffering a heart attack, took things further and came to believe in his own divinity. His multiple skills as creator, organiser and striker brought him worldwide acknowledgement as one of the best players ever known, an accolade tempered, in English minds at least, by the goal he scored for Argentina after 51 minutes of their quarter-final against England in the 1986 World Cup finals in Mexico.Deemed by the referee to have been headed, the ball was actually punched over the line and the foul went unpunished.
