Here are the Latest Details Regarding the Notre Dame Cathedral Disaster

0

The 15th of April was a tragic day for everyone across the globe but particularly heart-breaking for those in France as the country’s iconic 856-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral went up in flames. As for how this occurred, the fire seems to have been as an accidental consequence of the on-going construction on the building, however, an investigation has been opened by the prosecutor’s office to clarify.

As for the extent of the damage, the cathedral has reportedly had two-thirds of the roof destroyed as well as its 19th-century spire. Furthermore, the three iconic rose windows first installed during the medieval era reportedly exploded due to the high temperatures. However, since then more detailed reports have stated that although the West and North windows have been damaged to an extent, all three actually remain intact, I guess we will have to wait for further examinations to confirm their state.

However, it’s not all bad news as the main edifice and two bell towers were spared from the destruction as a consequence of the hundreds of firefighters that fought the blaze. As well as this, the City’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, announced – to many people’s relief – that most of the artwork and religious relics were evacuated before they could be claimed.

Once the dust settled on the event, President Emmanuel Macron stood outside the cathedral and vowed to rebuild the beloved structure, saying: “The worst has been avoided, but the battle isn’t fully won yet.” In fact, Macron has already launched an international fundraising campaign in order to raise money for the expensive reconstructions, and as of yet, tens of millions have already been raised thanks to the generosity of people around the world.

Tiger Woods Wins the 2019 Masters, Completing One of the Best Sporting Comebacks Ever

0

22 years after becoming the youngest and first African-American Golfer to win the Masters, Tiger Woods has once again made history as he took home his fifth Green Jacket, marking his first major tournament win since 2008. In fact, Woods has now become the second most successful Masters golfer in the history of the sport, something that is truly groundbreaking given the trials and tribulations he has faced over recent years.

Specifically, Tiger faced an almighty media backlash as a consequence of his legal and moral mistakes, and as this approximately coincided with his potentially career-ending injuries, no one thought that it was possible for him to return to his previous form. In fact, even the bookies were confident that the Woods wouldn’t be hanging up another Green Jacket, something that came back to haunt them after a string of unlikely bets have come through, with one punter even taking home $1.19 million after placing an $85,000 bet.

Amazingly, Woods has now secured wins at the Masters in 1997, 2000, 2001, 2005 and now 2019. Consequently marking one of, if not the most, significant comebacks in sports. Watch his winning put as well as a follow-up interview below.
