DORTMUND return to Bundesliga action as they look to haul in Bayern Munich at the summit of the table.

Lucien Favre's side were beaten 1-0 by their big rivals last week, a loss which leaves them facing a monumental task to win a first title since 2012.

To stand any chance of catching the pace setters it's likely that Dortmund will have to win all of their remaining games, starting here against Paderborn.

The hosts are rock bottom of the table though and have won just four out of 28 top-flight matches this season.

When is Paderborn vs Dortmund?

  • This Bundesliga clash is part of a double-header on Sunday, May 31.
  • Kick-off is at 5pm BST.
  • When the sides met last, they played out an entertaining 3-3 draw just before Christmas.

Which TV channel and live stream can I watch it on?

  • You can catch every remaining game of the Bundesliga season live on BT Sport.
  • Coverage of this one begins at 4.45pm on BT Sport 1.
  • If you're a BT customer or have their broadband package, you can grab the official app to stream on a number of devices.

How can I watch for free?

If you have a phone contract with EE, you can get a three-month trial to BT Sport without paying a penny.

Simply text SPORT to 150 – you can cancel at any time.

What is the team news?

Dortmund will be without talisman Erling Haaland who is out with a knee injury.

The visitors will have to plan for the absence of Mahmoud Dahoud, who will be out for the rest of the campaign.

Klaus Gjasula is suspended for the hosts, who are yet to lose since the Bundesliga returned.

Premier League: BBC to show live matches when season resumes in June

Four Premier League games will be broadcast, free to air, live on BBC Sport when the season resumes.

It is the first time since the Premier League’s inception in 1992 that games will have been shown live by the BBC.

On Thursday it was announced that the league is set to restart on 17 June, subject to government approval.

“This opportunity creates an historic moment for the BBC and our audiences,” director of BBC Sport, Barbara Slater said.

“At a time when sports fans across the country are in need of a lift, this is very welcome news.”

As well as the four live games there will be additional Match of the Day highlight programmes.

Every one of the remaining 92 Premier League games will be broadcast live across Sky Sports, BT Sport, BBC Sport or Amazon Prime.

Sky Sports will make 25 of the remaining top-flight matches free to air, including the Merseyside Derby on the first weekend of the 19-21 June.

The last time a live, top-flight league football match was broadcast on the BBC was during the 1987-88 season.

Facemasks in the works that light up if you have coronavirus

Face masks that LIGHT UP under a scanner if you have coronavirus are in development and could be used to identify infected people in hospital waiting rooms and airports

  • Sensors in masks are able to detect signs of the virus in saliva after three hours
  • When they detect the virus the mask then emits a very faint fluorescent glow 
  • This glow can then be picked up by cheap handheld scanners called fluorimeters
  • Developers of the masks hope to have them ready for distribution at the end of the summer but say they have a small team so it may take longer than that 
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

Facemasks that give off a fluorescent glow if you have coronavirus are being developed and could help slow the spread of the virus, its developers claim.

Researchers from MIT and Harvard are working on adapting a technology that was first developed in 2016 to quickly and cheaply detect signs of the Zika virus.

They are building sensors into the masks that lets off a glow that is too faint to see with the naked eye but can be picked up with a handheld scanner.

The MIT-led team say this could allow officials in airports, train stations, offices and hospitals to quickly detect people infected with the deadly virus. 

Lead researcher Jim Collins said it would be useful as a more reliable alternative to temperature checks already in use in some public places like airport terminals. 

Scroll down for video 

Hospitals and public places such as airports currently rely on temperature scans to detect signs of COVID-19 but these scans pick up any illness that results in a fever. Researchers say this test would only detect the COVID-19 virus

Currently, testing involves taking samples from the nose and back of the throat and then sending them off to a lab to be analysed – this can take up to 24 hours 

By contrast, the face mask sensor could return a result within three hours of someone wearing their mask, the study authors say.

Collins and his team say they have adapted the 2016 technology to detect SARS, measles, hepatitis C and the flu, and are now working on spotting COVID-19. 

The sensors can be built into paper, quartz or plastic and freeze-dry genetic material into the fabric that remains stable at room temperatures for months.

They are then activated from the moisture coming from breath as someone puts on the mask; saliva or mucus with the virus is picked up and gives a positive reading.

This then triggers the glowing fluorescent light that can be picked up by scanners known as fluorimeters. 

A fluorimeter costs about £1 to buy according to Collins, who says they could be brought in bulk and used in most public places where large groups might gather after lockdown measures are ended. 

The team say they are still at a very early stage of development but should be able to demonstrate the first prototype in a few weeks, before starting real-world trials.

They would need to test the mask on confirmed coronavirus patients to ensure that they get regular positive readings before rolling it out more widely.

‘As we open up our transit system, you could envision it being used in airports as we go through security, as we wait to get on a plane,’ Collins told Business Insider.

‘You or I could use it on the way to and from work. Hospitals could use it for patients as they come in or wait in the waiting room as a pre-screen of who’s infected.’ 

He said doctors may even be able to use them to diagnose patients on the spot – without having to send samples of saliva off to a laboratory.

Someone would have the mask placed on their face and then they would be scanned by the fluorimeter to determine if they have the virus.

At the moment a sample is taken from the back of the throat and nose, sent off to a lab and then a delay of hours or even days follows while they wait for a result.

Collins says real-world and rapid testing could help not only slow the spread of the disease but also help prevent future major outbreaks.

They are working on whether to embed the sensors inside a mask – requiring people to have a specific mask – or whether it can be attached to any over the counter mask.

‘We initially did this on paper to create inexpensive paper-based diagnostics,’ Collins said. ‘We’ve shown it can work on plastic, quartz, as well as cloth.’

The team say it would be useful in airports and other public places and the sensors could be added to existing over the counter masks 

Currently testing involves taking samples from the nose and back of the throat and can take up to 24 hours to get a result. The facemask sensor could return a result in under three hours

The sensors are designed to have a relatively long shelf-life – potentially lasting at room temperature for months and still be able to detect the virus when worn.

In order to detect signs of the virus, Collins’ team needed to wait for the COVID-19 genome to be sequenced – something done by a Shanghai laboratory in January.

He said they only needed a small segment of the sequence to spot the virus.

It’s not an immediate test though – it would need to be worn for between one to three hours before it would give off its fluorescent glow – so they are better for environments like airports and hospitals rooms where people are waiting.

In 2016, the Zika sensors cost about $20 to produce, and the test to check for the glow cost less than $1. It is thought the COVID-19 sensor could be cheaper. 

Collins hopes to begin manufacturing his COVID-19 masks for public sale by the end of the summer – in time for many schools to return.

‘Right now we’re time-constrained and talent-constrained in that we’ve got a relatively small team,’ he said. 

‘We’re limited in how many we can have in the lab working, and they’re all working as hard as they can.’  

The original 2016 research was published in the journal Cell.

Ryan Thomas admits lockdown life with a newborn is ‘intense’ & praises Lucy Mecklenburgh after she was viciously trolled

THE first weeks at home with a new baby are, for most new parents, a whirlwind of visits and presents, cuddles and family snapshots.

But for Ryan Thomas, 35, and Lucy Mecklenburgh, 28, who welcomed son Roman on 12 March – just before the UK went into coronavirus lockdown – that 'newborn bubble' has been far from ordinary.

"We have our good days and our bad days but we are coping," Ryan says, but hints the couple – who are also planning their future wedding – are deeply missing quality family time like millions of us.

"I think the hardest thing is not being able to see our families – my little son not seeing my brothers and my nieces and nephews, that’s quite an important thing to do when you have a little newborn baby, but that’s been taken away from us.

"Being a 'celebrity' means nothing when you are going through this, it’s no difference to me and the person next to me – it is daunting and it is intense. The lack of sleep is terrible and you can’t think straight," he admits.

While things are odd for thousands of new parents, Ryan's fiancee Lucy – who's known for her openness and honesty on Instagram with her 1.6million followers – hasn't been shy of discussing the trials and tribulations of being a new mum on lockdown.


In the hope to support others in similar situations, like Ryan, she's spoken about everything from leaky boobs to keeping healthy but, sadly, been victim to trolling too.

Last week she opened up about going to get Roman’s vaccinations, revealing she’s received a mixed response from fellow mums – some attacking her for doing it.

She hit back on her Instagram stories sharing clips of Good Morning Britain’s Dr Hilary discussing the benefits of vaccinations amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s about perception of risk. People have forgotten how damaging Polio was, Rabies, Diphtheria, whooping cough. They used to kill thousands and thousands of children. We’ve become complacent because we don’t see that as a risk anymore,” he explained on the ITV morning show.

“Meningitis still does, however, get publicity, but people are more likely to vaccinate their children than the other things they’ve forgotten about. Vaccinations have saved millions and millions of lives.”

Lucy said she thought it was 'important' to share Dr Hilary’s words because she had faced criticism over her decision to vaccinate and Ryan says he supports her decision.


"A lot of people have opinions about parenting but I don’t feel as though they can judge others on what they do with their own child, " he says.

"Everyone has their own way of bringing up a child and that’s fine, I’m not going to preach to other parents about how they should bring up their kids, because I don’t think it’s right for me to do that.

"Lucy is doing it her way and she’s trusting her motherly instincts that she’s doing the right thing and I can only vouch for that and I’m backing her 100%, because it’s right."

"Lucy is amazing though, " he adds.

"We have tag teamed everything so the house stays in order. Food, dishwasher, walks. We have a little routine and Lucy has been like clockwork, she should have a cape on!"

As for the former Towie star, one of the biggest challenges has also been having to isolate away from best friend Lydia Bright.

With their due dates so close to one another, Lydia, 30, and Lucy enjoyed every aspect of their pregnancies together but have been forced apart due to the coronavirus crisis.

But Ryan says – while he's on hand 24/7 to help Lucy – Lydia has been there too from those exhausting night-feeds to muddling through those endless questions every new parent has.

"She’s on the phone to Lydia all the time – her friends, her mum, her dad, they only live round the corner – it’s really weird, but we are sticking by the rules and trying to save lives, like everyone else, it’s important right now. Staying connected is the most important thing."

Lucy is doing it her way and she’s trusting her motherly instincts and I’m backing her 100%, because it’s right."

Ryan and Lucy also have another helper lending a hand with Roman when she can – Ryan's 11-year-old daughter Scarlett.

"Scarlett absolutely adores her little brother, they have a real connection. He looks at Scarlett like she is the best thing that has ever happened."

Ryan is also juggling homeschooling Scarlett when he can but the pair have been treating Lucy to breakfast in bed and bonding over baking, like thousands of parents out there.

"I'm really proud of her, she's doing really well."

*Ryan will be a panellist on today’s WaterWipes Early Days Club LIVE event, via Zoom at 2pm.

Ryan will also be joined by host comedienne, Ellie Taylor and panellists: Myleene Klass, Dr Laura Lenihan and midwife, Marie Louise. For details on how to join today’s Zoom call at 2pm, please click here.

Bachelor’s Madison Prewett ‘Likes’ Tweets Shading Ex Peter Weber

All the shade! After dropping a major revelations about Peter Weber on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s “Off the Vine” podcast, former Bachelor contestant Madison Prewett liked tweets that shaded her former flame.

Madison, 24, went on a tweet-liking spree on following her interview with Kaitlyn, 34, on Tuesday, April 21. “I’m team @madiprew any day 💯✊🏽,” one tweet read, while another fan wrote, “Madi is the person I strive to be 😭💕.”

A third fan called the Alabama native “a true gem,” as another supporter noted that Madison “said her truth” during Tuesday’s tell-all conversation. 

“I have never watched the bachelor before this season but I’ve loved you from the beginning to now,” another Twitter user shared. “I just love the message and the power you [are] showing and letting everyone around you gain as well. You’re showing woman [sic] that it’s okay to be who you are regardless.”

During her appearance on Kaitlyn’s “Off the Vine” podcast, Prewett opened up about her former romance with the 28-year-old pilot. At the time, she recalled a “really confusing” moment, during which Peter allegedly reached out and confessed his love for her. She claimed that this occurred before his reunion with fellow Bachelor alum Kelley Flanagan, who he’s currently quarantined with in Chicago alongside Dustin Kendrick.

“He was, like, calling me and texting me being like, ‘I miss you, let’s get back together,’” she alleged to the Dew Edit designer.“I mean, I think that to me was a little confusing.” 

Madison continued, “I think, like, when you break up and you’re going through a heartbreak and you just came off a show that was emotionally, physically and very which way exhausting, everybody handles that differently. Everybody leans on different things.”

Madison also claimed that she was “best friends” with Kelley while shooting The Bachelor, but was caught off guard by the attorney’s rekindled romance with Peter. “I was definitely hurt and thrown off by that whole situation,” she admitted. “I want the best for the both of them, but I definitely was thrown off.”

In response to Madison’s claims, Peter shared his take on the matter by dropping a comment beneath a related post shared by the Bachelor Nation Instagram fan page, writing, “You’d think you’d have a little more respect for this situation given we both know there’s more to the story…”

Alabama church is struck by lightning on Easter Sunday as tornados and storms rage through the Deep South – The Sun

AN Alabama church was struck by lightning on Easter Sunday, as tornadoes hit the Deep South.

Parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama were facing likely "strong tornadoes", as the NOAA warned severe weather would last until Monday.



The warnings for severe weather came as every U.S. state is already under a major disaster declaration due to the coronavirus.

More than 22,000 people were out power in Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas due to the stormy weather, according to the Southwestern Electric Power Company.

Pictures showed Shoal Creek Baptist Church was on fire, after lightning struck the Princeville, Alabama building's steeple, WAFF reported.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and luckily, no injuries were reported, WAFF reported.

According to the National Weather Service's tornado watch service, parts of Louisiana and Mississippi are under a tornado watch until 8 p.m. Central Time.

Much of the Deep South is under similar warnings, as the states face flash flooding, severe wind, thunderstorms, and the threat of tornadoes on the Easter holiday.

Maps from The Weather Channel show the storms are going to continue in the Deep South until Monday.

A picture shared by WJTV showed a tornado on the ground at Yazoo County airport in Mississippi.

All flights out of Monroe Regional Airport in Louisiana are canceled indefinitely, after severe winds tossed around debris and left planes buried.

Pictures shared by the City of Monroe on social media show planes at the airport buried under piles of debris.



One plane had its tail pushed into the ground and was half-buried under a building, with its nose pointed into the air at a 45-degree angle.

Buildings were torn apart because of severe winds or tornadoes, the City of Monroe said.

Another picture showed the sides of an office building at the airport were torn apart, looking as if they'd been clawed.

Insulation and the interior of the building were exposed as the siding was almost completely torn off the outside wall.

Jamie Mayo, the Mayor of Monroe, and Ron Phillips, the airport's Regional Director, announced in a joint statement: “all flights at the Monroe Regional Airport are cancelled until further notice.”


Travel has already been slowed due to the pandemic, with some airlines announcing domestic flights alone have been reduced substantially – and many airlines have all but halted international flights.

Delta Airlines, one of the companies that has flights to and from Monroe Regional Airport, reduced the number of flights in April by 80 percent, according to a statement from CEO Ed Bastian.

The airport in Monroe was not the only area damaged by the severe weather.

Another video shared by Mississippi's Emergency Management Agency showed flash flooding near an apartment in the town of Como.

As workers stepped off a truck, they were standing nearly knee-high in flooded streets.



Weather conditions remained poor, and officials worked to clean debris from the runways so flights could begin operating again.

Pictures shared by the city showed power lines and trees near St. Mary Baptist Church in Monroe, Louisiana were down, as other large pieces of wood were strewn about, crushing fences.

Hannah Brown Denies ‘Making Light’ of Coronavirus With ‘Contagious’ Smile

Hannah Brown raised eyebrows by sharing two photos of herself in a bikini alongside a caption that some fans deemed “insensitive” in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

“What’s more contagious than a smile,” the Bachelorette alum, 25, wrote via Instagram on Friday, March 20.

In the comments section of the post, one Instagram user reminded Brown that COVID-19 is “quite literally” more contagious than a smile, while countless others simply wrote, “Coronavirus.”

The Alabama native later updated her caption to read, “Just trying to spread some love here rather than fear, not making light of the situation.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/B9-eR8WnVnq/

What’s more contagious than a smile 😊 . . . Just trying to spread some love here rather than fear, not making light of the situation 🙏🏼

A post shared byHannah Brown (@hannahbrown) on

Brown has been quarantining at her ex Tyler Cameron’s house in Jupiter, Florida, since earlier this month when the disease began rapidly spreading across the United States. The former couple have been keeping busy by making TikTok videos and doing outdoor workouts on Instagram Live with their so-called “quarantine crew,” which also includes Tyler’s brother Ryan Cameron and best friend Matt James.

Although some fans — and several members of Bachelor Nation — want the Dancing With the Stars champion and Tyler, 27, to get back together, a source told Us Weekly exclusively last week that they are simply “great friends [who] have a lot of fun together.” A second insider added, “Tyler and Hannah are very much aware of the attention that’s been on them recently. They think it’s funny that people are so invested.”

The general contractor finished as the runner-up on Brown’s season of The Bachelorette in 2019. After breaking off her engagement to Jed Wyatt, the former pageant queen asked Tyler to get drinks — and they ended up having an overnight date at her apartment later that week. However, their reunion was short-lived, as he went on to have a nearly two-month fling with fellow model Gigi Hadid.

Brown and Tyler seemed to pick up where they left off earlier this month when they reunited at a celebration of life for his mother, Andrea Cameron, who died from a brain aneurysm on February 29.

The reality stars have not publicly commented on the current status of their relationship.

‘You can’t stop people from living’: Beachgoers defiant as NSW government shuts down Bondi Beach

On a warm autumn day, as waves gently wash over the sand, there are few better places in the world than Bondi Beach.

But the large crowds of sunbathers, swimmers and surfers flocking to the popular beach in the past few days have been criticised for ignoring health advice about social distancing and restrictions on public gatherings implemented in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In response, the NSW government announced on Saturday it would shut down the beach.

Earlier, Waverley mayor Paula Masselos had urged beachgoers to follow the guidelines about social distancing.

"I am frustrated that people continue to ignore health advice about social distancing as observed yesterday at Bondi Beach," she said.

There were less beachgoers on Saturday morning as Keith McNaughton prepared to swim in the ocean with his friend Mary.

Mr McNaughton said he was visiting the beach to maintain his physical and mental health.

"I’m trying to apply some reasonable risk management," he said. "But for me it’s important for my mental health to keep doing exercise."

However, Mr McNaughton said he had adjusted his regular routine to avoid crowds: "It’s pretty busy down here but we’re going to have a swim out the back."

"So am I worried about it? I’m trying to keep away from people and isolate per the government guidelines."

Mr McNaughton said he had taken his children to Clovelly on Friday, but had left when it became too busy.

But he said: "It’s important they allow the community to still go out and get exercise appropriately."

Sam Sirianni, who regularly runs and swims at Bondi Beach, said he was "not really" worried about visiting the beach.

"I keep my distance from people," he said. "As you can see, I’m laying by myself."

Mr Sirianni, from Double Bay, said the crowds at the beach were a problem but added: "You can’t stop people from living. That’s the way I look at it. If it’s a nice day and I want to have a run and a swim, well I’m gonna go do it."

However, Mr Sirianni said he would accept a lockdown if it was imposed: "But at the moment, if they’re telling us to keep 1.5 [metres] away from people, well, let’s go by that."

Other beachgoers interviewed by The Sun-Herald expressed similar sentiments, although they declined to give their surnames.



Diego, from Chile, said he had come to the beach for "just a quick walk" after avoiding it last week.

"We’ve been trying to keep ourselves in our houses for a while but I think that getting some fresh air during the morning is a good thing," he said.

Belinda, from North Bondi, said she had arrived at the beach early when there were few people around.

"I went for a swim where there was no one near me and then I lay on the beach where there was no one near me," she said.

A regular beachgoer, Belinda said she was concerned by the large numbers of people at the beach who did not appear to take the pandemic seriously.

"Did you see yesterday?" she said. "It was outrageous."
