Neymar gets one match ban for Marseille red



Neymar was handed a one-match ban on Thursday after being sent off in PSG’s explosive 2-2 draw at bitter rivals Marseille at the weekend.

The Brazilian forward will miss Friday’s Ligue 1 visit from Mario Balotelli’s Nice.

Neymar grabbed a brilliant equaliser in a fiery encounter at Marseille Sunday before his side went down 2-1 with ten minutes to go.

Leading the chase for another equaliser, Neymar appeared to lose his cool, picking up two yellows in quick succession for retaliation.

His teammate Edinson Cavani levelled with a dramatic injury-time free-kick to save a point for the Ligue 1 leaders.

PSG coach Unai Emery has told his 25-year-old star to wise up to provocation tactics.

“He is intelligent. He is also aware that he must learn from what happened on Sunday,” said Emery.

“I spoke to him about it before the match and we said not to get involved in any provocation. But on the pitch, with the intensity and the aggression, the players are people

The 222 million-euro ($264 million) Brazilian has scored 10 goals in 11 games since his move from Barcelona.

Neymar was also given a further one-match suspended ban that will be activated should he be sent off again this season.

Are you over 100? Then you've got a better chance of living even longer!

It’s considered an inescapable fact of life: the older you get, the more likely death becomes. But a new research conucted in Germany disproves of that suggestinh that the chances of dying may level off – at least for those who make it to 105 years old.
The study found that death rates, which rise exponentially in adulthood, begin to decelerate after 80 years old and appear to eventually plateau, or even decline slightly, after the age of 105. By that point, the chances of passing away in a given year are approximately 50-50.“It’s the equivalent of tossing a coin each year,” said Prof Jim Vaupel, a specialist in ageing at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Germany and one of the authors. The findings add fuel to an unusually hostile debate between two camps of scientists, who are locked in an escalating dispute about whether humans are approaching their upper limit in terms of lifespan.The latest paper, from Vaupel’s team who argue there is no evidence of a looming lo…
