Jose Aldo accepts that McGregor won with a perfectly thrown punch on Brazilian TV

Jose Aldo was knocked out by Conor McGregor after 13 seconds of the biggest headline fight in the history of the UFC. Videos and photos have been circulating since the Brazilian hit the mat of a dejected and broken former champion.

In an interview with a Brazilian TV channel (in Portuguese), Aldo, who is known for his mental fortitude, speaks about getting back in the ring and his defeat to McGregor. 

Asked if he will be looking for a rematch, he said, "Of course, if god wills it, now, firstly I want to get back to gym and come back stronger. And of course, a rematch. I think every champion, after losing, and especially the way I lost - no excuses, I lost, he connected with a good strike and was successful - but, of course, I want a rematch. If god wills it, we will come back a lot stronger, and we will bounce back."

Nurofen 'specific pain' range to be pulled from Australian shelves after products found to be identical

A court in Australia has ordered the company behind a number of Nurofen branded products to remove them from shelves over misleading claims.

The ruling affects a range of products that were said to treat specific types of pain, such as back pain and migraine pain.

However, the Federal Court in Australia has now found the Nurofen Specific Pain products were identical.

The proceedings against manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser (Australia) were commenced by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. The commission says "each product contains the same active ingredient, ibuprofen lysine 342mg, and is no more effective at treating the type of pain described on its packaging than any of the other Nurofen Specific Pain products".

"The 8th Amendment compounds the grief and the trauma... I never felt so trapped and alone"

Amy Walsh and Yousef Hazimee spoke to Newstalk Lunchtime today to share their story of a journey the hoped they would never have to take.

Amy and Yousef had been married for around two years when they found out Amy was pregnant in late 2014. "I was quite anxious about this, because I didn't want to think I was pregnant and then find out I wasn't," Amy explained.

They arranged an early scan at eight weeks, and found out that the "pregnancy was good, there was a heartbeat, and we were told our chance of a miscarriage now was negligible".

However everything changed when they went for their 12 week scan. The midwife told them that she was really unhappy that the baby had lost a week's growth - especially since the baby had measured correctly during the first scan a few weeks earlier.
