Salomon Rondon compounds Newcastle fan misery as he completes transfer to Rafa Benitez’s Dalian Yifang – The Sun

SALOMON RONDON has completed his move to China – and sent a heartfelt message to Newcastle and West Brom fans.

Rondon has opted to join Rafa Benitez at Dalian Yifang instead of making his loan move to Tyneside permanent in a bitter blow to the club's supporters.

Newcastle have now seen the 29-year-old and Ayoze Perez leave in a terrible summer which also led to Benitez quitting for the Chinese Super League.

And the Venezualan admits the 12 months of a four-year spell in English football will live long in his memory.

He said: "Today is the end of an incredible spell for me in the Premier League.

"During these past four seasons I've seen my dreams come true, like scoring in some of the greatest stadiums in the world or hearing some of the most loyal supporters chant my name.

"In my final year, I was extremely lucky to be part of a very special club, where I felt loved by the supporters and after putting in a lot of effort, I enjoyed one of my best seasons on an individual level and we achieved a good outcome as a team.

HONOUR

"Being Newcastle's number nine is certainly an honour that'll always stay with me."

West Brom were the club that brought him to the Premier League, and they have been left with no choice but to let him leave for an undisclosed fee having missed out on promotion back to the top flight.

He added: "I also feel grateful to WBA for the affection from every single Baggie right from day one and for the opportunity the club gave me by bringing me to English football, which today I say goodbye to whilst knowing that the future in this sport is unpredictable and full of adventure.

"I'm beginning a challenge that really motivates me and that I'm really excited about as I become a Dalian Yifang player.

"I'm moving to a new country with a different culture, a growing league that's increasingly attracting talented and quality players, and above all a club with a really ambitious project.

"Those who know me are aware that I'm taking this step full of new objectives an am, as always, really keen to better myself whilst giving my all for my new team, as I have always done."

Carol Vorderman: ‘I do love a cockpit’ Countdown star sends fans wild in green jumpsuit

Carol Vorderman, 58, took to the micro-blogging site where she shared a snap of herself sitting in the cockpit of an aircraft at the Royal International Air Tattoo charity event. The age-defying beauty sported a pair of sunglasses as her blonde tresses hung past her shoulders as she beamed at the camera. In view of her 407,000 followers, the small-screen star penned: “I do love a cockpit #Pilot…sitting in one of the concept #GenerationTempest models at ⁦@airtattoo @BAESystemsAir @RollsRoyce @Leonardo_live #TopGun.” Fans quizzed the star on her comment, as one person added a clip of the movie character Austin Powers with the caption: “Oh behave.”

Another person said: “Can I be your wingman,” while another social media user added: “Just choked on my beer @carolvorders.”

It comes after Carol attended the Air Tattoo event by the Royal Air Force which is held over the next three days in order to raise money for charity.

The television presenter is an active supporter of the RAF Association charity and regularly appears at their fundraising events.

Also, the small-screen star obtained a private pilot’s license in 2014 and was appointed an ambassador of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets the same year.

Earlier in the day, Carol shared a solo snap of herself as she showcased her attire at the event.

She showed off her enviable physique in a dark green jumpsuit, which hugged her curves and cinched in at the waist.

The former Countdown mathematician teamed her ensemble with a pair of heels as her blonde tresses blew in the wind.

In view of her 407,000 Twitter followers, she captioned the post: “Hanging out at ⁦@airtattoo waiting for ⁦@rafredarrows @RAFRed1 to fly our amazing ⁦@astro_timpeake…counting down…”

Fans flocked to comment with one person writing: “You are just perfection.”

Another person commented: “That flying suit fits you well!”

While a third person exclaimed: “Loving the jump suit perfection right there.”

Meanwhile, the BBC Radio Wales presenter opened up about an emotional moment she experienced as a young child.

Speaking to her co-host Owain Wyn Evans, the mathematician revealed she and her mother had moved out of her stepfather’s home for the circus but she left with one particular item which broke her mother’s heart.

Carol told listeners: “This bear called Bunji. He’s quite pink.

“When my mum left my stepfather for the first time, when she ran way to the circus with me and Bunji came.”

She continued: “And we were in this awful place with a broken window opposite Leicester prison. I think I was nine then. We were staying in there and she said, ‘It broke her heart because I said Bunji hadn’t got a home anymore’.

“And she thought, ‘Oh God I’ve got to do something to get out of this situation’.”

Family spend five hours stuck on tarmac after TUI emergency landing

Family spend five hours stuck on airport runway ‘with just a small cup of orange juice’ after TUI flight from Cancun to Newcastle makes emergency landing in Orlando

  • Iain Gosman and his family were flying from Cancun, Mexico back to Newcastle
  • The flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Orlando, Florida
  • Mr Gosman said passengers were offered orange juice and water during the wait

A family travelling from Newcastle to Cancun spent five hours waiting in their seats ‘with just a small cup of orange juice’ after their flight was forced to make an emergency landing.

Iain Gosman, his wife Michelle and their daughter Caitlyn, 13, from Edinburgh, had been holidaying at the Mexican resort town and were set to fly back home on Wednesday. 

But their plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Orlando, Florida because of a technical issue. 

Mr Gosman explained: ‘We were about an hour and three-quarters into the flight when the pilot came up on the tannoy and said we were going to have an emergency landing because of technical issues.

Iain Gosman (right), his wife Michelle (centre) and their daughter Caitlyn, 13 (left), from Edinburgh, had been holidaying in Cancun, Mexico and set to fly back to Newcastle but their flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Orlando because of a technical issue

‘There was a burning smell and there were fire engines following down the runway.

‘A lot of people were quite concerned because they had no idea what were happening, but the cabin crew were brilliant and kept everyone calm.’

Despite this, he said the overall organisation of the situation from TUI was not good enough.

US immigration regulation meant passengers were not allowed off the plane and  passengers had to wait in their seats for five hours.

During the wait he claimed they were offered nothing more than a ‘small cup of orange juice’ as staff said they did not want to run out of food and drink for the rest of the journey. 

The travel company also said that custom regulations in Orlando meant they could not open the bar and could only offer passengers orange juice and water.

The plane was eventually flown back to Cancun with the burning smell still in the air, Mr Gosman claimed.

He said: ‘It was farcical, when we got back TUI were nowhere to be seen, there was no one telling us what was happening.

The family, along with other passengers, were not allowed off the plane and into Orlando airport (pictured) because of US immigration regulations and to wait on the plane for five hours. Mr Gosman said they were only offered ‘a small cup of orange juice’ and water

‘The local people on the ground told us nothing. We were stood queuing outside with no water waiting for a bus to take us back to the hotel we were in for the night.’

He explained that they arrived at the hotel at 4.30am, where there was a big queue of passengers trying to get a room, and that they were leaving at 11am.

‘So at best we were only get a few hours of sleep, we didn’t really have time to have a shower, get some food.’  

Mr Gosman said what had annoyed him most was the failure to provide proper food for Caitlin, who suffers from a severe nut allergy, over the two different journeys –  meaning she went hours without proper meals. 

On the outbound flight, he said the captain had taken Caitlin into the departure lounge to buy her food on his credit card. 

TUI says the family were offered food vouchers so they could buy food before getting on the plane.

‘She had to go nine to 10 hours with just crisps and some crackers and cheese,’ he said. 

‘They cater for gluten free and vegetarian but given how serious a reaction to nuts can be they seemed to suggest they didn’t want any responsibility.’

 TUI has offered all passengers €600 compensation following the flight fiasco and has ‘sincerely apologise[d]’ for the chaos (stock image)

The Gosmans arrived back in the UK around 7.20am on Thursday, almost 24 hours later than intended, and the family had to buy new rail tickets to get back home to Edinburgh. 

TUI has offered all passengers €600 compensation following the flight fiasco and has ‘sincerely apologise[d]’ for the chaos. 

A TUI spokesperson said: ‘We would like to sincerely apologise to customers on board flight TOM643 from Cancun to Newcastle on Tuesday, which was diverted to Orlando Sanford as a result of a technical issue with the aircraft.

‘As a result of immigration restrictions at Orlando Sanford, customers were unfortunately unable to disembark the aircraft.

‘Once the technical issue was resolved, the captain made the decision to return to Cancun where customers were provided with all inclusive hotel accommodation. 

‘Our team in Cancun did everything possible to minimise disruption for the customers. The flight arrived in Newcastle this morning.

‘We understand delays and diversions can be very frustrating and we would like to thank customers for their patience. The safety and wellbeing of passengers and crew is always our highest priority.’

Royal staff ‘grumpy’ after Meghan and Harry given new suite at Buckingham Palace

Royal staff have reportedly been left "grumpy" that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were granted a huge suite at Buckingham Palace.

It's claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to move their team into six large rooms off the master corridor – despite them having offices at Kensington Palace.

And the move has reportedly caused a stir among staff, with one source claiming "there a lot of people trying to cause trouble" for the couple.

A royal insider told The Sun: “The Palace traditionalists are grumpy that such a prime space is being given over to Harry and Meghan, who have perfectly adequate offices already at Kensington Palace.”

The rooms in the Palace are currently vacant and can be booked by anyone.

It is understood no refurbishment work will be carried out, and the move will involve minor details such as desks being installed.

A Palace source added to the publication: “There are a lot of people trying to cause trouble for the Duke and Duchess as a result of this move.

“But the facts are they were offered these rooms by the master of the household because they are currently unoccupied and used as meeting rooms.

“They will be reserved for Harry and Meghan when they are at the Palace but the permanent space is shared for the staff."

The move comes weeks after it was announced Meghan and Harry would be splitting from Kate Middleton and Prince William to form their own charity foundation.

Ben Stokes nominated for New Zealander of the year

England all-rounder Ben Stokes has been nominated for the New Zealander of the Year award – days after his man-of-the-match performance in the Cricket World Cup final.

The 28-year-old Stokes was born in New Zealand but grew up in England when his father Gerard moved there to take a rugby league coaching job.

Stokes remained in England when his parents returned home and carved out a successful cricketing career, scoring 84 not out in the final that helped his side to their maiden 50-over World Cup title at Lord’s on Sunday.

His total included a controversial six in the final over, when England needed nine from three deliveries. Stokes and Adil Rashid pushed for a second run when a throw from a fielder deflected off Stokes’ outstretched bat and away to the boundary for four byes and six in total.

  • Should Stokes’ six have been a five?

But Stokes’ exploits in the final earned some early nominations for the awards, as did New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, local media reported on Friday.

“The way he (Williamson) conducted himself, not only in the face of such devastating disappointment at Lord’s but throughout the tournament, resonated powerfully with Kiwis from all walks of life,” the award’s chief judge Cameron Bennett told the New Zealand Herald on Friday.

“Interesting to see some character having a bob each way: we also received nominations for England’s Ben Stokes.

“He might not have been playing for the Black Caps but, having been born in Christchurch, where his parents now live, and with Maori ancestry, there’s clearly a few Kiwis about who think we can still claim him.”

There was no immediate response from the awards’ organisers when contacted by Reuters.

Nominations for the award only opened on July 1 and close on September 15.

A shortlist is confirmed in December with the winner named next February.

The award is typically given to prominent members of the community with comedian Mike King, who has become a mental health and suicide prevention advocate, the most recent to receive the award.

The Night King actor finally clears up GoT mystery – but fans aren't having it

How did Arya Stark manage to sneak up behind The Night King? Game of Thrones fans have still been none the wiser months after the most terrifying villain in Westeros was slaughtered by the littlest Stark, but actor Vladimir Furdik may have finally cleared things up.

During The Long Night, the battle between the living and the dead came to a head with way too many heroes left standing. After eight seasons of sleepless nights living in fear of The Night King, Arya (Maisie Williams) came from nowhere stuck a dagger in his gut and in the blink of an eye he was gone.

Anti-climax doesn’t even cut it.

Vlad – the man behind the monster – has now shared a video on Twitter, which may explain how Arya got to The Night King with an early shot of the hero leaping from a rooftop in an episode from the early Game of Thrones hey-days, foreshadowing what was later to become her golden hour.

‘A girl learned from her training,’ the 49-year-old teased to his 9,000 followers.

Although, fans still need convincing:

The Night King’s death was just one of many complaints to tarnish Game of Thrones’ final season. From a rogue coffee cup to unfinished storylines and everything Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) did or said, the HBO juggernaut’s legacy will be one of the biggest disappointments imaginable.

Showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have since been immortalised as ‘bad writers’ on Google, thanks to fans of the fantasy epic, and they’ve subsequently pulled out of appearing at this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con where they were expected to address the backlash surrounding season eight for the very first time.

Regardless, Game of Thrones has been nominated for a record 32 Emmy Awards with eight of its stars up for acting gongs. EIGHT. Even if Gwendoline Christie and Alfie Allen had to submit themselves after being overlooked by HBO.

Game of Thrones seasons one to eight are available to stream on NOW TV.

Matt From ‘Queer Eye’ Has Made A Ton Of New, Exciting Updates To His Ranch

When the Fab Five first met Matt on Queer Eye, his house didn’t feel like a home after his recent divorce, his look needed a little polishing, and he was struggling to keep his family farm business successful. But as always, Jonathan, Antoni, Tan, Karamo, and Bobby worked their magic. And they left him in a much better place than where they found him.

Farmer Matt was nominated by a longtime friend who wanted the Fab Five to teach him how to invest in himself — in other words, to practice self-care. Before Queer Eye came along, he worked long hours on the land tending to cattle and crops, wore exclusively jeans and flannel shirts, and spent hardly any time grooming. His idea of styling his hair was simply running a little water through it.

As Matt explained to the guys, one day after returning home from an agricultural speaking engagement, he discovered his wife had left him with their two young kids. Since then, he’s been putting everything he has into his once-struggling farm business, which was initially anchored by a seasonal pumpkin patch. He was already working on a few new ideas when the Fab Five arrived — his end-of-episode event was his first farm-to-table dinner — but since then, he seems to have made even more upgrades.

According to the Red Barn Ranch’s website, Matt still has the corn maze and that giant silo slide, but has added a corn cannon (aka a missile launcher that shoots corn at pumpkins for $1 per shot), an irrigation arm swing set, a barrel train, pumpkin bowling, tic-tac-toe, corn hole, mini golf, and more.

Admission costs $6 for everyone two years old and up. And it looks like Matt took Bobby’s pumpkin decorating advice, because the site says kids get a free mini-pumpkin to paint and take home. You can also stop to feed the animals on the "working farm," as Matt calls it, for 50 cents per cup of food, and you’re invited to pack a picnic lunch and hang out as long as you want. The website also says the farm welcomes school field trips and group tours, as well as private events, photo shoots, and weddings. All of the facilities are open to the public on weekends from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m, but you can visit on other days by appointment.

The ranch also has a Facebook page where they keep community members updated on the farm’s happenings, like the fact that they’re already tending to the pumpkin plants for the upcoming season. And it looks like on Independence Day, Matt celebrated more than America’s birthday — he celebrated corralling his loose farm animals back into their pins. Apparently, someone "accidentally" unlocked the animal gate and his goats, sheep, and pig escaped, wandering the land and neighborhood. But thanks to his grandma and neighbor, Betty, he was able to get them all home safe and sound.

Other than the case of the loose petting zoo, Matt and the farm seem to be doing exceptionally well. They just started selling hats as merchandise and even held a sold-out berry picking, just in time for pumpkin patch season. (And oh, by the way, Matt seems to still be sporting a more cleaned up look).

INTERVENTION

SBS Viceland, 11.25pm

Addiction is a deadening, cruel constant – SBS is showing the very first series of this reality documentary series (there are now 20) that initially aired in 2005, but aside from the odd bit of technology or fashion the particulars of an addict and their circumstances are timeless. For wife and mother Tina, the constant intake of prescription pain medication results in self-loathing, financial dodges, and an increasingly dangerous enlarged heart; hanging out at the racetrack with her toddler in tow hoping to win some money sums up her day. "I don't want to have to say to my son, 'Your mum is dead'," says her husband, Harley, the tone as blunt as the handheld shooting style. These early episodes have an unadorned openness in the lead-up to the actual intervention, which is a tearful but somewhat premeditated ritual.

The houseguest who won HOH on Big Brother last night now has a lot of control in his hands. The competition didn’t get finished during the Thursday night episode, though, as they had to cover the Camp Comeback twist first.
