Van Gaal admitted that he’s dealing with severe pain but will do everything to take charge of their final qualifier against Norway in Rotterdam on Tuesday 

‘Physically it’s not going well, I’m in a lot of pain’, the stricken Van Gaal said on Monday in a video call after his wheelchair wouldn’t fit through the door to allow him to take the press conference.

‘That’s why I’m in a wheelchair. There is a fracture in a bone.

‘I can do everything [coaching], because my brain works. And there are resources that are made available.

‘It doesn’t look natural, I understand that. But I think coaching is verbal and you do it with your brain.

‘You convince the team with your presentation. I did everything I would normally do.’

A married woman was flogged 100 times after she commited adultery in Indonesia while her male partner, who was also married, received just 15 lashes.

The woman’s flogging in the conservative Aceh province on Thursday January 13, was briefly paused because she couldn’t bear the pain, according to an AFP reporter.

Ivan Najjar Alavi, the head of general investigation division at East Aceh prosecutors office, said the court handed down a heftier sentence for the married woman after she confessed to investigators she had sex out of her marriage.

Judges found it difficult to convict the man, who was then the head of East Aceh fishery agency and also married, because he denied all wrongdoings, Alavi added.

‘During the trial, he admitted nothing, denying all accusations. Thus, [judges] are not able to prove whether he is guilty,’ Alavi told reporters after a public flogging for Sharia law offenders in East Aceh on Thursday.

As an alternative punishment, the judges found the married man guilty of ‘showing affection to a female partner who is not his wife’ after the couple were caught by locals at a palm oil plantation in 2018.

He was initially sentenced to 30 lashes but his successful appeal at the Sharia Supreme Court in Aceh reduced the sentence to 15.

Another man, who was convicted of having sex with a minor, was also whipped 100 times on Thursday and will also serve 75 months in prison for the crime, according to prosecutors.

Aceh is the only region in Muslim-majority Indonesia to impose Islamic law, which allows whipping for charges including gambling, adultery, drinking alcohol, and gay sex.

Explaining the inspiration behind shooting an all-black, all-African cover, Edward, who was born in Ghana and moved to west London as a child, said: ‘I saw all these incredible models from across Africa who were just so vivacious and smart.

‘These girls are redefining what it is to be a fashion model.’

‘It’s sad and heartbreaking for me to see girls who are on the rise suddenly taper off.

‘We need to ensure these girls last. We have to invest in them, nurture them and support them with editorial, with advertising, with shows. It has to be 360. Alek Wek didn’t suddenly become Alek Wek.

‘There was a group of us behind girls like her, propelling them forward. This is what we have to do in all our different roles. Getting these girls and then throwing them away after one season? That has to stop.’

David previously addressed those who say kissing his daughter on the mouth is inappropriate.

In 2017, when Harper was five, David shared an image of him kissing Harper and when he was called out for it, he responded: “I got actually criticised for kissing my daughter on the lips the other day. I kiss all my kids on the lips. Brooklyn, maybe not. Brooklyn’s 18, he might find that a little bit strange. But I’m very affectionate with the kids. It’s how I was brought up and Victoria, and it’s how we are with our children.”

He added: “We want to show our kids love and we protect them, look after them, and support them, and we’re very affectionate with them.”
