Sports betting firms offer to get out of the jersey game
In Australia, the sports betting sector has offered to remove logos from football club match-day jerseys amid an intense stand-off with the government over a looming clampdown on gambling advertisements.
Communications Minister Michelle Rowland is preparing to announce curbs on TV, online and outdoor betting promotions and has been in talks with gambling, TV and sporting code executives.

Three sources from these sectors, speaking anonymously to detail confidential discussions, said the gambling industry had offered to stop advertising on football jumpers.
The industry has also floated taking advertisements off radio airwaves at school pick-up times and enacting Victorian-style rules prohibiting promotions on billboards and around schools.

Crowd storms Russian airport to protest flight from Israel
Hundreds of people stormed into the main airport in Russia’s Dagestan region and onto the landing field to protest the landing of an airliner coming from Tel Aviv, Russian news agencies and social media reported.
Authorities closed the airport in Makhachkala, capital of the predominantly Muslim region, and police converged on the facility.
There were no immediate reports of injuries or arrests.
Russian news reports said people in the crowd were shouting antisemitic slogans and tried to storm the airliner belonging to Russian carrier Red Wings that had landed from Tel Aviv.
Video on social media showed some in the crowd on the landing field waving Palestinian flags.
