The report published on Tuesday said the figure includes amounts missed in 2019-20 when the top 20 highest-earning clubs in Europe earned 8.2 billion euros of combined revenue, which was down 12% on the previous season. That drop in income of 1.1 billion euros was primarily down to the deferral of broadcast revenue into the financial year ending in 2021, with all the major leagues brought to a standstill in March last year due to the pandemic. "Matchday operations are a cornerstone of a club's business model and help drive other revenue-generating activity," Dan Jones, partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, said.
Cole Beasley was so committed to being part of what became the Buffalo Bills’ deepest postseason run in 27 years, the veteran slot receiver spent the past three weeks playing on a broken leg. The pain of a 38-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC championship game might linger far longer. “I’d expect everybody to take that feeling in the offseason and do what they feel they need to get us to where we want to go,” Beasley said Monday, a day following the loss.
He was eliminated following Saturday’s show.

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. said top hardware executive Dan Riccio is stepping down from his role to lead a new project at the company and John Ternus, one of his top lieutenants, will replace him.Riccio has been senior vice president of hardware engineering since 2012, overseeing development of the hardware in the iPhone, iPad, Mac and audio products like the AirPods and HomePod. Ternus, who Bloomberg reported last year was poised to replace Riccio, has been vice president of hardware engineering since 2013, and was most recently leading the iPhone, Mac and iPad engineering groups.Riccio will remain at the company as a vice president of engineering and focus on a new project reporting to Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, the Cupertino, California-based tech giant said Monday in a statement. “I’m looking forward to doing what I love most — focusing all my time and energy at Apple on creating something new and wonderful that I couldn’t be more excited about,” Riccio said in the statement.Apple didn’t specify Riccio’s new assignment, but the company has at least two major hardware initiatives in the works: a self-driving car and headsets for augmented reality and virtual reality. In his previous role, Apple’s head of AR and VR hardware reported to Riccio, while the car project was moved under the leadership of John Giannandrea, the company’s machine learning chief, last year.Apple is working on a consumer-oriented self-driving car, but it won’t launch for at least five to seven years, Bloomberg News reported earlier this month. Apple is however inching closer to announcing its first VR-focused headset as early as next year, whereas lightweight AR glasses won’t launch until several years later.Read more: Apple Plans High-End VR-Focused Headset as Prelude to AR GlassesRiccio joined Apple in 1998 and succeeded Bob Mansfield as hardware engineering chief nine years ago. When Mansfield left that job, he also remained at Apple and in 2016 became the head of the car project before retiring last year. Riccio briefly oversaw the car project in its early stages.Apple in recent years has pushed Ternus into the public eye. When the company was criticized several years ago because its Mac computers had been updated infrequently and lacked features demanded by professional users such as photo and video editors and app developers, Ternus was the prime executive responding to the complaints and pledging to improve the machines. In November, Ternus announced new Mac laptops that were the first to use company-designed chips.Read more: Apple Launches Three New Macs to Kick Off Switch From IntelA person who knows Ternus told Bloomberg in September that he is a well-respected manager who understands the technology, and despite his rising profile, has remained unassuming — all characteristics of a potential future company division head or even CEO.Around the beginning of 2020, Ternus’s responsibilities expanded to include the iPhone. Prior to that change, Riccio spent the bulk of his time on the handset, the product that generates the bulk of Apple’s sales. He also worked closely with Jony Ive, Apple’s former design chief who departed in 2019.Riccio is the second top executive to leave Apple’s leadership team in the past year while remaining at the company in another role. Phil Schiller, Apple’s former senior vice president, was named an Apple Fellow last year leading the App Store, public relations and the creation of Apple product announcements.Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams remains the only holdover from the executive team that served under former CEO and co-founder the late Steve Jobs. Every member under Cook has been either promoted to or hired for the executive team since Cook was named CEO in 2011.(Updates with more context on Ternus transition in ninth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
Asian stocks came under pressure on Tuesday as worries about U.S. stimulus and surging coronavirus infections led to a mixed Wall Street session, while the dollar consolidated overnight gains. The choppy trade reflected concerns about new strains of the deadly virus, along with uncertainty about the $1.9 trillion U.S. fiscal stimulus plan that has hit opposition from Republicans in Congress. Those factors tempered earlier optimism stoked by the roll-out of vaccines and anticipation that new U.S. stimulus would give the world economy a much-needed fiscal shot in the arm.

(Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks slipped Tuesday after a choppy U.S. session as investors mulled the timing of further stimulus amid gains for technology shares. Treasury yields held overnight losses.Stocks saw modest declines in Japan and South Korea. Australian markets are shut for a holiday. S&P 500 futures dipped after the gauge closed higher, though gains were limited after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said an aid package was unlikely before mid-March and a U.S. health official expressed concern about vaccination delays. The Nasdaq 100 outperformed as investors awaited earnings from some of the biggest companies.Elsewhere, crude oil climbed toward $53 a barrel and gold was little changed. European stocks retreated earlier.With global stocks trading around record highs investors are looking for fresh catalysts to push them higher or at least justify current valuations. That could come from a slate of earnings reports due this week. Meanwhile, the possibility that a U.S. fiscal-relief package might be delayed is undercutting a key reason why Treasury yields climbed earlier this year.President Joe Biden said he’s open to negotiate on his $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief proposal, and is hopeful to bring Republicans behind it, though didn’t rule out pursuing a Democrat-only route. Schumer said earlier Monday he aims to secure passage of the next round of relief by mid-March, just when jobless benefits from the last package will be running out.On the pandemic front, vaccine coverage won’t reach a point that would stop transmission of the virus in the foreseeable future, the World Health Organization said Monday. U.S. infectious-disease chief Anthony Fauci said he’s worried about delays to second doses.These are some key events coming up in the week ahead:Microsoft Corp., Apple Inc., Tesla Inc., Facebook Inc., UBS Group AG and Samsung Electronics Co. are among companies reporting results.Data on U.S. home prices and consumer confidence come Tuesday.The Federal Open Market Committee monetary policy decision and briefing by Chair Jerome Powell are scheduled for Wednesday.Fourth-quarter GDP, initial jobless claims and new home sales are among U.S. data releases Thursday.U.S. personal income, spending and pending home sales come Friday.These are the main moves in markets:StocksS&P 500 futures fell 0.1% as of 9:03 a.m. in Tokyo.

Nissan Motor is accelerating the rollout of electric vehicles in China under its main brand and its local, no-frills Venucia marque as it overhauls its strategy in the world's biggest auto market, four sources told Reuters. Besides the focus on green vehicles, the plan involves using more locally made parts and technologies to reduce costs and help the struggling Japanese carmaker compete better with lower-cost Chinese firms and major global rivals, the sources said. The China strategy is a key pillar of Nissan's turnaround, which involves focusing on producing profitable cars for China, Japan and the United States, rather than chasing all-out global growth as it did under disgraced former boss Carlos Ghosn.
A delegation of House members delivered an article of impeachment against Donald Trump to the U.S. Senate tonight, a ceremony that triggers a process for a trial on charges that the former president incited the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday delivered to the Senate a charge accusing former President Donald Trump with inciting insurrection in a speech to his supporters before the deadly attack on the Capitol, setting in motion his second impeachment trial. Nine House Democrats who will serve as prosecutors in the trial, following the clerk of the House and the acting sergeant at arms, carried the written accusation through the Capitol Rotunda and to the Senate chamber, following the same path that a mob of Trump supporters took on Jan. 6 as they clashed with police.The Senate is expected to start a trial on Feb. 9 on the article of impeachment against Trump.The 100 senators are due to serve as jurors in proceedings that could result in Trump's disqualification from ever again serving as president.Ten House Republicans joined Democrats in voting to impeach Trump on Jan. 13. Senate Democrats will need the support of 17 Republicans to convict him in the Senate, a steep climb given the continued allegiance to Trump among the Republican Party's conservative base of voters.Democrat Patrick Leahy, the Senate's longest-serving member, said on Monday he will preside over the trial.Although the Constitution calls upon the U.S. chief justice to preside over presidential impeachments, a senator presides when the impeached is not the current president, a Senate source said. First elected to the chamber in 1974, Leahy, 80, holds the title of Senate president pro tempore.Chief Justice John Roberts presided over the impeachment trial when the Senate, the controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans, acquitted Trump in February 2020 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress arising from his request that Ukraine investigate President Joe Biden and his son.Leahy will still be able to vote in the trial, an aide said, noting that senators still vote on all matters when presiding over the chamber.Some Republicans questioned the arrangement. "How does a Senator preside, like a judge, and serve as juror too?" Republican Senator John Cornyn asked on Twitter.A number of Republican lawmakers have objected to the impeachment, some arguing that it would be a violation of the Constitution to hold a trial now because Trump no longer serves as president.Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, rejected that argument on Monday."The theory that the Senate can't try former officials would amount to a constitutional get-out-of-jail-free card for any president," Schumer told the Senate.Trump is the only U.S. president to have been impeached by the House twice and is set to become the first to face trial after leaving office. He left office on Jan. 20.A divided senate The Senate is divided 50-50, with Democrats holding a majority because of the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris. Senate leaders on Friday agreed to put off the trial for two weeks to give Trump more time to prepare a defense and let the chamber focus on Biden's early priorities, including Cabinet appointments.The impeachment focuses on Trump's speech to supporters on a grassy expanse near the White House shortly before a mob stormed the Capitol, disrupted the formal certification of Biden's victory over Trump in the Nov. 3 election, sent lawmakers into hiding and left five people dead, including a police officer.During his speech, Trump repeated his false claims that the election was rigged against him with widespread voting fraud and irregularities. He exhorted his supporters to march on the Capitol, telling them to "stop the steal," "show strength," "fight much harder" and use "very different rules."Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and other lawmakers in the party have condemned the violence and some have accused Trump of inciting it. Republican Senator Mitt Romney told CNN on Sunday that the trial was necessitated by Trump's inflammatory call to his supporters.A Reuters/Ipsos poll on Friday found that 51% of Americans thought the Senate should convict Trump, breaking down largely along party lines.(REUTERS)
Over 300 leading companies said on Tuesday they would work together to help hundreds of thousands of merchant sailors stuck on ships for many months due to COVID-19 in a crisis that risks creating more dangers at sea. About 90% of world trade is transported by sea, and coronavirus restrictions in many jurisdictions are affecting supply chains. In December the U.N. General Assembly urged all countries to designate seafarers and other maritime personnel as key workers.
