On an agonising day for Joe Root's team, Smith broke English hearts with his second double-century after recalled all-rounder Marsh celebrated his maiden century. They strode off to a standing ovation, with Smith unbeaten on 229 and Marsh 181 not out, pushing toward a double-century of his own. But the mark lasted less than a day, as Smith and Marsh smashed 57 boundaries between them to leave England praying for the mercy of rain. Having torched England for 107 runs in the middle session, Smith and Marsh plundered another 128 after tea, as the tourists' lack of pace was ruthlessly exposed. Smith punished England with 215 at Lord's in 2015 but set himself a new personal best at the WACA in a masterclass of patience, precision and timing.

Ilkay Gundogan put Pep Guardiola's side ahead with a 14th-minute header from a Leroy Sane corner and while Spurs had their moments, City ran away with it in the second half.

New Delhi: Sonia Gandhi, who served a record 19 years as Congress president, on Saturday seemed to imply that Rahul Gandhi was better prepared to lead the party than either of his parents was. "I'm proud of his endurance and firmness and I'm confident he will lead the party with a pure heart, patience and devotion," she told Congress politicians and workers after handing over charge to her son. Rahul has indeed had a long apprenticeship, learning the ropes through the decade-long UPA rule and going through the grind under a hostile Narendra Modi government. "As all of you go forward on your new path, I will be there to rejoice in your achievements. May this path be lit with the wisdom, high principles and great traditions of our forebears," Sonia added, implicitly nudging Rahul to practise ethical politics.

The bench disposed of 17 cases - appeals against lower court convictions and sentences - hearing them all for the first time and taking about 10 minutes over each. "I'm late by 12 minutes," Justice Bagchi joked, and the lawyers tittered.
Abu Dhabi: Cristiano Ronaldo scored with a free-kick which went through the defensive wall to break Gremio's brave resistance and give Real Madrid a 1-0 victory over the South American champions in the Club World Cup final on Saturday.
