The badly beaten bodies of Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24, were found on a beach on the Thai island of Koh Tao in 2014. Two migrant workers from Myanmar, Wai Phyo and Zaw Lin, were handed death sentences in 2015 after being found guilty of both murders and the rape of Ms Witheridge. On Thursday, a final appeal to get the death sentences overturned was rejected by Thailand's Supreme Court.

ANKARA (Reuters) - Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan, currently on loan with Turkish club Basaksehir, was sentenced to two years and eight months in jail for firing a gun to cause fear and panic, illegal possession of weapons and intentional injury.

However, the court deferred the implementation of the verdict, which means Turan will not go to prison unless he commits a crime in the next five years.

Turan was involved in a fight with Turkish singer Berkay Sahin in an Istanbul nightclub late last year, leaving the singer with a broken nose. Turan later arrived at the hospital with a gun which he fired at the ground, causing panic.

Robots and artificial intelligence has long been touted as a replacement for humans carrying out jobs around the world. However, robots are rarely thought of as pole dancers in nightclubs - but that is exactly what is happening in Nantes. Two robot dancers, wearing high heels and topped with a CCTV camera for a head, will debut at the SC-Club in the French city to celebrate its fifth anniversary next week. The bots were the brainchild of British artist Giles Walker, who has overlaid their metal bodies with parts from plastic mannequins.
