Curated by our Picture Desk, we catch you up on the news and stories from across the globe. From uncovering stunning creative images, diving deep into the major news stories to the moments to remember from the sporting world.

On Sunday, the long and divisive reign of Benjamin Netanyahu, the opinion dividing Israeli Prime Minister officially ended. As the Parliament gave its vote of confidence to a precarious coalition and swore in new Prime Minister, Naftali Bennet, Israelis celebrated in Tel Aviv and across the country in support of the new government. Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, is relinquishing power after almost a quarter of a century and has been a divisive figure throughout. Arguably leaving Israel a stronger country than when he first took charge, in recent years, and with particular spotlight on the recent fighting with Palestine, this election has seen a new era for Israel begin and a desire for a less aggressive and combative leader.

Over in the States, Pride events took place across the country with Vice President, Kamala Harris taking to the streets with crowds and parades to mark the occasion. Thousands of people took part in the annual event that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community with Boston holding a Trans-specific rally in support of equality and recognition of Trans and Black Trans people.

With the lowest numbers of COVID cases reported in India since March, Taiwan is continuing their fight against the latest wave. Chemical troops were seen disinfecting streets in New Taipei, a zone deeply affected by the community transmission of Covid-19. Taiwan’s increasing number of domestic cases and deaths related to the coronavirus are further worsened by an inadequate supply of vaccines.  

In Sport, the start of this year’s EUROs has seen highlights, goals, and trauma as Denmark’s Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch during their game against Finland. In distressing and troubling scenes, the player can be seen collapsing with his team mates later standing around him as he was resuscitated by medical staff and was then taken to hospital. The Shocked football world rallied around the player with team mates, players and fans sending their messages of support. The match resumed after a few hours and fans could be seen cheering as news broke that he was awake and stable. 

So far, the group winners have been; Italy, Finland, Belgium, England, Austria and the Netherlands with Wales and Switzerland drawing 1-1. Today’s match sees Scotland’s long-awaited return to a major tournament as the country watches on. After 23 years of heartache in the football world, their return may help lift a nation and inspire future generations.

Take a look at this Weekend’s Roundup.
