Fans in Singapore see red over the cold Red Devils

Manchester United, arguably the most popular club in the world, rolled into town last night for this weekend's International Champions Cup (ICC). But, while the reception from the fans was red hot, the Red Devils themselves blew cold. As if acting on authority, players and staff alighted the team bus at about 8.10pm and shuffled past about 150 fans inside the Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore hotel and down a flight of stairs before they disappeared. Midfielder Juan Mata was the only one to stop, albeit for a selfie with one fan and an autograph on a fan's United memorabilia. Others, like forward Romelu Lukaku and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, mustered just about enough effort to wave as they walked past. Manchester United fans that The New Paper spoke to were bitterly disappointed. Said Tristan Loh, 23, an army regular, who was with about 100 people who had to settle for a spot outside the hotel, along Raffles Avenue: "A lot of us were rejected by security from even going outside the lobby area to wait.

Man jailed 2 weeks for hitting elderly man and injuring woman with e-scooter on pedestrian bridge

SINGAPORE - Ignoring a sign telling e-scooter riders to «dismount and push», a man rode his device onto a pedestrian bridge and it hit an elderly man who fell. Instead of waiting for the police to arrive, Victor Chin, 37, decided to flee on his e-scooter. Another pedestrian, Ms Soh Zhi Wen, 29, tried to stop him by holding onto its handle, which hit her right wrist when Chin continued riding. She then fell and hit her face against some railings. Chin, who works as a driver, was sentenced on Thursday (July 18) to two weeks' jail after pleading guilty to two counts of causing hurt by behaving in a rash manner. On June 9 last year around 7.30am, Chin on his e-scooter reached a bridge connecting Clementi Avenue 4 to Sunset Way and which spans a canal. Deputy Public Prosecutor Sarah Ong said there were many pedestrians on it at the time. While riding on the bridge, Chin tried to squeeze through a gap between two pedestrians, the court heard. The right handle of his e-scooter hit Mr Cheong Yik Choong's right elbow and the 72-year-old man fell.
