Joe Biden says all adults are eligible for Covid-19 vaccine ‘starting tomorrow’

President Joe Biden made an appearance on Sunday night’s televised Roll Up Your Sleeves vaccination special, which also featured appearances from former President Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Dr Anthony Fauci, and many more. During his speech, Biden said, “For months I've been telling Americans to get vaccinated when it's your turn. Well, it's your turn now. “Starting tomorrow,” he continued, “all adults are eligible to get their shot. It's free, it's convenient, and it's the most important thing you can do to protect yourself from Covid-19 including the new variants we're seeing. To protect your loved ones, to help our economy recover, and to help things get back to normal.” He went on to thank those who have already been vaccinated and urged viewers to help their friends and neighbors find a way to secure a vaccine of their own if they needed assistance. “If you've been fully vaccinated, thank you. If you're planning to get vaccinated, make sure you follow through, please. If you have a friend, a family member, a neighbor who needs a hand or a ride getting to the site to help them out, well, help them out. Offer to give them a ride. If you know someone who's uncertain about whether to get the vaccine, let them know that these vaccines are safe and effective. “Look, we're making tremendous progress, but we're still in the race against this virus,” he concluded. “And we need to vaccinate tens of millions of more Americans. I've said it before, we can have a safe and happy 4th of July with your family and friends in small groups in your backyard. But that's going to take everyone doing their part.” The special, presented by NBC in the US, ATTN:, and Walgreens, airs on 18 April at 7PM on NBC in the US. The broadcast is meant to educate audiences about the importance of getting vaccinated against Covid-19.

European Super League confirmed: 12 leading clubs announce new breakaway competition

A dozen of Europe’s richest clubs, including six from the Premier League, have agreed to join a new European Super League. Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham have announced plans to establish the competition along with AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Real Madrid. It is anticipated three more clubs will join the breakaway group as founding members of the new mid-week competition, which will begin “as soon as practicable”. The 15 regular participants, who will be granted automatic entry each year, will be joined by five more teams, who can qualify annually based on achievements in the prior season. The plans have faced widespread criticism for creating a “closed shop” at the summit of European club football, while Boris Johnson on Sunday described the move as “very damaging” for the domestic game. Uefa, the sport’s governing body in Europe, has said players participating in the Super League could be “banned from all Uefa and Fifa competitions”, including representing their national sides at the World Cup or European Championships. READ MORE: What is the planned format and how would the Super League work? A statement released by the European Super League group said clubs would receive a share of a €3.5bn (£3bn) fund “solely to support their infrastructure investment plans and to offset the impact of the Covid pandemic”. The statement added: “The formation of the Super League comes at a time when the global pandemic has accelerated the instability in the existing European football economic model. “Further, for a number of years, the Founding Clubs have had the objective of improving the quality and intensity of existing European competitions throughout each season, and of creating a format for top clubs and players to compete on a regular basis. “The pandemic has shown that a strategic vision and a sustainable commercial approach are required to enhance value and support for the benefit of the entire European football pyramid. In recent months extensive dialogue has taken place with football stakeholders regarding the future format of European competitions. “The Founding Clubs believe the solutions proposed following these talks do not solve fundamental issues, including the need to provide higher-quality matches and additional financial resources for the overall football pyramid.” Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is named the first chairman of the Super League, with Juventus counterpart Andrea Agnelli the vice chairman alongside Manchester United’s Joel Glazer. As it became clear an announcement was imminent on Sunday, criticism of the competition was raised from all angles, including the UK government and all major European football organising bodies. Culture secretary Oliver Dowden said the “deeply troubling” proposals could undermine fair competition in the game, while the European parliament’s sports group warned a “closed competition of superrich clubs” could “form a privileged caste outside the structures of European club football”. The Premier League said in a statement that a Super League would “destroy” the premise of open competition. “A European Super League will undermine the appeal of the whole game, and have a deeply damaging impact on the immediate and future prospects of the Premier League and its member clubs, and all those in football who rely on our funding and solidarity to prosper,” it added. And in a joint statement with the English Football Association, the Premier League, the Spanish FA, La Liga, the Italian FA and Serie A, Uefa also condemned the “cynical project”, threatening to ban participating clubs from existing domestic competitions. “We will consider all measures available to us, at all levels, both judicial and sporting in order to prevent this happening. Football is based on open competitions and sporting merit; it cannot be any other way. “The clubs concerned will be banned from playing in any other competition at domestic, European or world level, and their players could be denied the opportunity to represent their national teams.” Fifa also condemned the proposals. “Fifa can only express its disapproval to a ‘closed European breakaway league’ outside of the international football structures and not respecting the aforementioned principles,” it said in a statement. “Fifa always stands for unity in world football and calls on all parties involved in heated discussions to engage in calm, constructive and balanced dialogue for the good of the game and in the spirit of solidarity and fair play. “We will, of course, do whatever is necessary to contribute to a harmonised way forward in the overall interests of football.” Read More ‘We’re heading in the right direction’, Stanway says after Lioness loss to Canada How would a European Super League work?

Barack Obama urges viewers to get Covid-19 vaccine on Roll Up Your Sleeves special: ‘The sooner we get more people vaccinated, the better off we’re going to be’

Former President Barack Obama urged viewers to get the Covid-19 vaccine on Sunday night’s televised Roll Up Your Sleeves vaccination special on NBC. Speaking over a Zoom call with former basketball players Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley, Obama stressed the urgency of the situation and said that the sooner everyone can be vaccinated, the sooner life can return to normal. “As the vaccine becomes more available, I want to make sure that our communities, particularly ones, African-American, Latino, as well as young people understand that this will save lives and allow people to get their lives back to normal. And the sooner we get more people vaccinated, the better off we’re going to be,” he said. Barkley agreed, telling Obama that he’ll be getting his second vaccine the very next day. “I cannot wait,” he said. “I think it's important for us to keep talking about the vaccine. So I'm telling my friends, 'Yo, man, forget what happened back in the day. Every Black person, please go out and get vaccinated.” O’Neal nodded. “I'm not worried about me and my family,” he said, noting how they had already been vaccinated due to having underlying health conditions. “I'm worried about the average mom and dad,” he concluded. The special, also featuring Michelle Obama and Hamilton personality Lin-Manuel Miranda, airs on 18 April at 7PM on NBC in the US. The broadcast is meant to educate audiences about the importance of getting vaccinated against Covid-19. “The ability to get people back to work and kids back in school, getting us reunited with family and friends and attending concerts, sporting events and many other activities we hold dear is contingent upon people getting vaccinated,” said Matthew Segal, the co-founder of ATTN, which created the special in partnership with Walgreens and Civic Nation. The special itself was announced earlier in March and will feature public figures, comedians, artists, and performers, as well as frontline and medical professionals.
