‘Legendary’ 103-year-old woman celebrates beating coronavirus with a cold beer

The 103-year-old Massachusetts woman came back from the brink of death after battling the coronavirus — and celebrated with an ice-cold Bud Light. “She’s feisty and tenacious,” her grandson, Dave Stejna of Easton, Mass., tells The Post. “She is legendary in so many different ways.

CAF fast-tracks disbursement of financial aid to Member Associations

The CAF Emergency Committee has approved the immediate distribution of financial grants to Member Associations (MA) to support the management of football at the domestic levels hugely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of USD 10.8 Million will be transferred to the 54 MA’s on the continent as part of a relief plan to ease the financial burden on the African football community during these unprecedented times. “Due to the fast-spread of COVID-19, African MA’s have suspended all domestic competitions, which has brought about huge financial burdens on their shoulders. CAF has thus decided to wave the eligibility requirements to access the annual grants, so all Member Associations can benefit during this difficult period,” said CAF President Ahmad Ahmad.
