Credit Suisse has reached an out-of-court settlement with former star banker Iqbal Khan over allegations of spying that led to the resignation of the Chief Executive Tidjane Thiam, a spokesperson for the Swiss bank said on Sunday. "Everybody involved has agreed to settle and this matter is now closed," Simone Meier said, confirming a report in Swiss newspaper NZZ am Sonntag. The agreement, details of which have not been disclosed, ends a dispute that rocked the normally sedate world of Swiss banking when allegations of corporate espionage involving Credit Suisse emerged in September 2019.
Germany's conservative candidate to succeed Angela Merkel as chancellor apologised on Sunday for laughing on a visit to a flood-stricken town last week, a gaffe that has hit his ratings two months before a federal election. Armin Laschet's conservative bloc is around 10 points ahead of the Greens in most polls, but his lapse last weekend at Erftstadt, when he was caught on camera laughing at a joke while the country's president was giving a sombre speech, has cost him. "It was stupid and shouldn't have happened and I regret it," he told ZDF television.

The luxury group said consolidated net sales had fallen 25% last year to 1.6 billion euros ($1.9 billion), with most of the decline occurring in the first half of 2020.
Britain's Tom Pidcock has left nothing to chance for Monday's Olympic mountain bike race, training in a heated tent at home to prepare for Tokyo's soaring temperatures. The 21-year-old, a road rider with Ineos Grenadiers but returning to his cyclo-cross roots for a shot at gold, is one of the favourites along with reigning champion Nino Schurter and Dutchman Mathieu van der Poel. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-30s again on Monday at the demanding 4.1km circuit but Pidcock thinks his unusual training regime in which he rides his training bike inside a tent will help him cope.

Five years before Simone Biles was born, Oksana Chusovitina was already an Olympic gold medallist in a sport whose brightest stars often fade early, their bodies battered by years of gruelling training. At 46, the Uzbek gymnast has defied all odds to compete at her eighth Olympic Games in Tokyo but following the opening day of the women's competition, she bid a tearful farewell after failing to make the cut for the vault final. With ticket-paying fans barred from the arena due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Chusovitina missed out being given a rousing farewell from thousands of cheering fans but she was nevertheless moved by the standing ovation she received on Sunday from the coaches and fellow gymnasts who hailed her extraordinary career.

Spain shaded possession in a match marked by plenty of aggressive play on both sides, peppering Serbia keeper Branislav Mitrovic's goal with 25 shots before sealing a memorable win with desperate defending at the death.
