Donald Trump's financial troubles, OCI in more trouble in Rio, and Conor McGregor wins
After a busy weekend of news and sport, here's what you need to know to get caught up this Monday morning.
Donald Trump has had a very busy week, between his speech directed at the African-American voters, his lawyer's interview going mega-viral, and the unveiling of naked statues of his likeness around the States.
And as we head into the weekend, Trump's eventful period is far from over, with a new investigation by The New York Times claiming that Trump is currently in at least $650 million of debt, at least double what he had previously publicly disclosed.
Police in Rio have seized the passports of three personnel working for the the Olympic Council of Ireland.
A statement just issued by the OCI, said Brazilian police arrived early this morning to the OCI offices in the Olympic village and at OCI accommodation outside of the village.
Five gruelling rounds were required to separate the two fighters, with both parties coming away with punishing side effects from the clash.
Diaz sustained some heavy facial hits which drew blood and left him with a lot of bruising, and Conor McGregor paid tribute to his opponent Nate Diaz after exacting revenge on him at UFC 202.
"His face opened up and he's still coming at me. You've gotta respect that. You've gotta respect Nate and the style of fighting that he brings. How can you not?"
While most Irish eyes were focusing on London 2012 bronze medalist Rob Heffernan during Friday's 50-kilometre walk, Canada's Evan Dunfee was battling it out for a medal.
The 25-year-old finished in fourth place, 40 seconds behind Matej Toth, but was moved up to third place when Japan's Hirooki Arai was disqualified after the race. Arai and Dunfee clashed inside the final kilometre, before the Japanese athlete moved clear. He finished 14 seconds ahead of the Canadian.
Dunfee was briefly Canada's first Olympic medallist in the discipline, before Arai's disqualification was reversed. The British Colombia athlete could have appealed the decision to reverse the disqualification, and give himself an opportunity, but in a statement released by Athletics Canada, he revealed why he turned down the chance.
Steven Avery's new lawyer is confident that she will be able to overturn the conviction that put him behind bars.
Avery, whose story gained international recognition after the Netflix seriesMaking a Murderer became one of the most successful shows the streaming service has ever produced, was imprisoned for the rape and murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005.
Lawyer Kathleen Zellner took up Avery's case shortly after the series debuted on Netflix, and is confident that she can get his conviction overturned, particularly in the wake of the news that a federal judge in the United States ruled that Brendan Dassey's confession was involuntary.
