I see a Young King!! The ruler of the world, an untouchable Force that can never be denied!” the athlete said.“We as African Americans will always have to break barriers, prove people wrong and work even harder to prove we belong,” James added.A generic photo of the hooded sweatshirt without the modelling child is still available online.“You do know that monkey is a known racial slur to black people right?” style blogger Stephanie Yeboah tweeted on Sunday.H&M is one of several major companies to be hit by an advertisement scandal in recent years.In October last year, skincare brand Dove apologised after it was accused of racism for airing a commercial showing a black woman turning into a white woman after removing her top.And Spanish clothing brand Zara in 2014 removed a striped pyjamas with a yellow star after facing outrage over its resemblance to clothes worn by Jewish prisoners in concentration camps.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LeBron James posted his fourth triple-double in five games with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 15 assists as the streaking Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Washington Wizards 106-99STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan 9 – NBA superstar LeBron James on Tuesday lashed out at an H&M advertisement of a black child modelling a hoodie with the inscription “coolest monkey in the jungle” that has sparked outrage and accusations of racism.James is the latest public figure to criticise the Swedish clothing giant, which apologised and removed the online shopping ad.last_img read more

At Argentina football club, Maradona is God, Messi is Adam

first_imgNow, on the ceiling of one club in Buenos Aires, in a painting modeled after Michelangelo’s work in the Sistine Chapel, Maradona is God, extending his hand to Adam — Lionel Messi.Argentina-born Pope Francis, an avowed football fan, would certainly smile at the grand gesture made by the club Sportivo Pereyra, located in the Barracas district of the capital, where football and other team sports are played.“For us, this pitch is our temple — a sacred temple of football, and what better than to have a fresco on the ceiling that is worthy of a temple,” coach Ricardo Elsegood told AFP.“The Sistine Chapel has God and Adam, and the chapel of football has Messi and Maradona.”In this version of Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam,” instead of the angels surrounding God, other football stars are featured: Juan Riquelme, Gabriel Batistuta, Mario Kempes, Sergio Aguero, Claudio Caniggia, Ricardo Bochini and Ariel Ortega.The players are clad in the classic blue and white striped jersey of Argentina’s national team.Argentina’s Sistine Chapel of football pays tribute to Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” © AFP / JUAN MABROMATAThe club, where many children play, is located in the southern part of Buenos Aires, not far from the stadium of the Boca Juniors, Argentina’s most successful club.“It’s as if Maradona had bestowed upon Messi the gift of continued good football,” explains the artist who painted the work, Santiago Barbeito.For Elsegood, it was a simple decision.“We realized the ceiling was rather dark. We thought at first of painting it blue with white clouds. But one day, the artist came and said it would be better to do it with Messi and Maradona,” he said.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Young people play football at the Sportivo Pereyra club in Barracas, where local artist Santiago Barbeito has painted the sport’s version of the Sistine Chapel featuring legends Diego Maradona (R) and Lionel Messi (L) © AFP / JUAN MABROMATABUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Apr 26 – There is no question that football is a sort of religion in Argentina.And one of the football-mad country’s brightest stars, Diego Maradona, is known for his infamous “Hand of God” goal against England in the 1986 World Cup.last_img read more

This was the hardest game of my life- Oliech

first_img“This was the most difficult match of my life. Not even the numerous Harambee Stars games,” Oliech told Capital Sport just after the game against Mathare.He added; “This was my first match and the most important thing for me was the impact I was to make. People were expecting a lot and that made it more difficult. The competitive feeling is coming back slowly and I think I am building up nicely.”“Coming off the bench, from experience is very tough. But, I expect to start on Wednesday against Posta Rangers.”Oliech, still panting form the rigorous warm down he was put through as well as the other substitutes who played under half an hour said he was delighted to make his debut for Gor and furthermore mark a return to the Kenyan Premier League.Dennis Oliech dribbles towards goal during his debut during a Kenyan Premier League match against Mathare United on January 6, 2018.

It is the same now,” a delighted Oliech stated.Coming on, Oliech caused some jitters to the Mathare United backline and coach Francis Kimanzi admitted as much, that he had to guide his young backline to contain the mental fist-fights that came with the striker’s entrance.“It was a psychological thing which tried to disturb my boys but we had prepared well mentally for it, that we don’t care who plays but they play against Mathare United,” said the tactician.With a target of scoring more than 20 goals, Oliech says his biggest ambition is to help Gor retain the KPL title and personally for him to win a title after a long time in his career.“My focus now is on helping Gor Mahia win the league. Personally, I want to win a trophy because it has been so long since that happened. The last time I won a title was in 2010 when we won the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup in Mwanza with Harambee Stars. I want that feeling all over again,” he noted.Dennis Oliech moves around the pitch closely guarded by Mathare United defender Andrew Juma when he made his debut during a Kenyan Premier League match on January 6, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaCommenting on whether or not he will be ready to step into the national team for an opportunity to play at the Cup of Nations, Oliech says that will only count as a bonus as it is not on his mind.Oliech scored the all-important goal against Cape Verde that took Kenya to it’s last ever African Cup of Nations in 2004 and was also on the score sheet netting the second goal as Kenya beat Burkina Faso 3-0 for its only win in the tournament staged in Tunisia.“For me, I am not thinking about that very much now. My focus is on Gor Mahia and helping the team do well in the league and continentally. That will come later,” he further stated.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Dennis Oliech points out tactics to his teammates when he made his debut during a Kenyan Premier League match against Mathare United on January 6, 2018.
