  Paris zoo adds slime mold ‘blob’ to its list of attractions If you find yourself at the Paris Zoological Park this weekend you might come across a creature you wouldn't normally expect to see on display. It’s not a plant or an animal, and it doesn’t have a brain, but it does demonstrate shocking levels of intelligence. It’s a slime mold nicknamed “the Blob,” and it’s incredibly cool.

Edmund back on winning trail in 16:44. Paris Masters: Kyle Edmund beats

Kyle Edmund returned to winning ways for the first time since August by beating Ricardas Berankis 6-4 6-3 to reach the Paris Masters second round.

The British No 2 put almost three months of misery behind him to dispatch the Lithuanian in 80 minutes, setting up a meeting with 14th seed Diego Schwartzman in the last 32.

Edmund has slumped to 75 in the world rankings following a miserable run that had seen him lose eight matches in succession since a first-round victory over Nick Kyrgios at the Montreal Masters.

However, in the final tournament of the regular ATP season, Edmund ensured his year would have at least one more win by seeing off Berankis although there was time for a wobble with the winning post in sight.

After taking the first set, the 24-year-old raced into a 5-0 lead in the second before Berankis held serve and then broke to reduce the deficit. The Lithuanian qualifier then took a third game in succession before Edmund finally got over the finishing line for an overdue victory.

Edmund and Cameron Norrie are battling for the last remaining spot in the Great Britain Davis Cup team and Edmund's return to winning ways could put him in the box seat to join Andy Murray, Dan Evans and doubles pair Jamie Murray and Neal Skupski.
