Accord to Twitter Seve has passed away. RIP if it is true. An absolute legend.

Reports on both BBC and Guardian today of his condition taking a severe turn for the worse. Didn't sound too hopeful.

Howth faithful bemused at bin Laden memorial services (from the Irish Times)

CONOR POPE

CHURCHGOING RESIDENTS of Howth, Co Dublin, were bewildered to see Osama bin Laden listed for two memorial services in their parish newsletter yesterday morning.

The Catholic Church in the seaside town had named the terrorist – shot dead by US navy seals in a heavily-fortified compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, last Sunday – among those to whom it planned to devote a Mass.

In addition to carrying information about upcoming communions and confirmations, the Church of the Assumption newsletter also contained a brief announcement which read: “Osama Bin Laden (recently deceased)”, adding that the man who had topped America’s most wanted list for more than a decade was scheduled to have two Masses said in his honour next Thursday at 8am and 10am.

The information was also carried, without any further explanation or clarification, on the church’s website.

A number of parishioners were shocked at the appearance of the late al-Qaeda leader on the shortlist of people who were due to be remembered by the parish this week, but assumed the information was correct.

One said he did not really know what to make of the scheduled Masses and added that he would need to reflect on it for some time before deciding if it was an appropriate step for the church to take.

In a reflection of the growing influence of social media in Ireland, news of the proposed bin Laden service spread quickly via Twitter, with some users speculating that the decision was a genuinely Christian act of forgiveness and others marvelling at the insensitivity of the move.

However, a spokeswoman for the Dublin archdiocese expressed surprise that such a Mass would be scheduled. She subsequently confirmed that it was a hoax.

She said someone had telephoned the church last week asking that two services to be dedicated to the infamous al-Qaeda leader’s memory.

His name had been taken without question by a church official and included on the list for upcoming prayers without the sanction of parish priest Msgr Brendan Houlihan.

Msgr Houlihan was said to be very upset at bin Laden’s inclusion on the Mass list and insisted that under no circumstances would a memorial service be held in the church for the deceased terrorist.

“A lot of hurt has been caused by this hoax,” the archdiocese spokeswoman said, shortly before this week’s newsletter was taken down from the church’s website.

Aye. What, if anything at all, was going though the church official's mind when s/he transcribed "Osama Bin Laden (recently deceased)"!

Belgian cyclist Wouter Weylandt killed in accident in Giro d'Italia today

Belgian rider Wouter Weylandt has died following a crash during the third stage of the Giro d'Italia on Monday.

Leopard-Trek rider Weylandt, 26, crashed badly on the descent of the dangerous Passo del Bocco climb and received emergency treatment including cardiac massage at the scene of the accident.

Television shots showed the rider bleeding heavily and lying unconscious on the ground. His team later confirmed that he had died.

The stage was won by Spain's Angel Vicioso but his victory was overshadowed by the sad events earlier.

Leopard Trek spokesman Tim Vanderjeugd told Press Association Sport: 'I can confirm the death of Wouter Weylandt. He was taken to hospital but had already died at the scene.'

Giro race doctor Professor Giovanni Tredici told the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper: 'Weylandt was the victim of a fall and we are still trying to reconstruct the dynamics of what happened.

'We tried immediately but he was already unconscious, his condition was already compromised. We tried for 40 minutes to resuscitate him but there was nothing we could do.'

A further statement from Leopard Trek general manager Brian Nygaard read: 'Today, our team-mate and friend Wouter Weylandt passed away after a crash on the third stage of the Giro d'Italia.

'The team is left in a state of shock and sadness and we send all our thoughts and deepest condolences to the family and friends of Wouter.

'This is a difficult day for cycling and for our team, and we should all seek support and strength in the people close to us.'

The podium celebration at the end of the race was cancelled by organisers.

Weylandt won stage three of the same race last year, and also stage 17 of the 2008 Vuelta a Espana.

Tributes were quick to emerge from other riders.

Mark Cavendish said on Twitter: 'Things like this shouldn't happen. Absolutely sick to the stomach. My thoughts are with his family. RIP Wouter Weylandt.'

Australian Robbie McEwan simply said he was 'devastated'.

A statement from the International Cycling Union (UCI) read: 'On behalf of the whole cycling family, the UCI president Pat McQuaid wishes to extend his deepest sympathies to all members of Weylandt's family, all his friends and team-mates, but also to all his colleagues on the Giro, who will have to overcome their grief to continue in the race.'

One of my first boyhood crushes aged prob 10.

She knew how to keep K9 in place. Great to see her return to a later Dr. Who. I am sad to hear she is dead.
