The United States edged Europe by a single point as the Duel in the Pool came down to a thrilling tie-breaker in Glasgow on Saturday. After 30 events over two days at the Tollcross Swimming Centre, the venue for the swimming events at next year's Commonwealth Games, the two sides were locked on 131 points. Inspired by local favourite Michael Jamieson, who prevailed in the 200 metres breaststroke, the European side had built a 68-54 lead after Friday's first day. They carried their momentum into Saturday's early races, but the USA hit back with wins for Michael McBroom, Conor Dwyer, Olivia Smoliga, Eugene Godsoe, Jessica Hardy and Kevin Cordes.
British drinks giant Diageo said Saturday it will challenge an Indian court decision annulling its purchase of some shares of United Spirits that threatens its control of India's biggest liquor firm. Friday's ruling came five months after Diageo announced it sealed a 52.4-billion rupee ($845 million) deal to aquire a quarter of United Spirits' shares which made it the Indian company's controlling shareholder. "We do not believe there are any grounds for declaring the sale of shares in United Spirits Ltd purchased by Diageo on July 4 from United Breweries Holdings Ltd (UBHL) as void," Diageo said in a statement.
