A man who allegedly walked along the track during Sunday night's Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix has been arrested by police.

A statement released by the International Automobile Federation (FIA), Formula One's governing body, after the race said the 27-year-old, who was clad casually in T-shirt and shorts, was "assisting police with investigations".

Radical ex-PM Alexis Tsipras 'wins key Greek election'

Greece's charismatic radical left leader Alexis Tsipras on Sunday appeared on track for a second mandate as premier of the crisis-hit nation after a tense election race against his mainstream conservative rivals.

With more than a quarter of the votes counted, the leftwing Syriza party had a larger-than-expected lead of 35 per cent against 28 per cent for the conservatives.

This led the leader of the conservative New Democracy party, Mr Vangelis Meimarakis, to admit defeat.


Violent protests as Nepal adopts new constitution

Nepal on Sunday adopted a new constitution aimed at bolstering its transformation to a peaceful democracy after decades of political instability and a long civil war, even as protests raged over its terms.

The charter, the first to be drawn up by elected representatives, had been voted into law Wednesday after the main political parties - spurred by a deadly earthquake to shelve differences - agreed on a new federal structure.

Firecrackers went off in celebration in Kathmandu as President Ram Baran Yadav announced the adoption of the long-delayed constitution at a ceremony in parliament.


Football: Manchester United edges Southampton 3-2, Liverpool draw

Teenage striker Anthony Martial further endeared himself to Manchester United's supporters with a nerveless brace as his side came from behind to win 3-2 at Southampton on Sunday.

Scorer of a memorable solo goal in last weekend's 3-1 win over Liverpool, 19-year-old Martial struck either side of half-time at St Mary's after Graziano Pelle had given Southampton a 13th-minute lead.

Juan Mata added a third in the 68th minute and despite Pelle scoring again, United held on for a victory that propelled Louis van Gaal's side up to second place in the Premier League table, two points below leaders Manchester City, who lost 2-1 at home to West Ham United on Saturday.


Rugby: New Zealand All Blacks survive scare to beat Argentina; Samoa and Wales also win

The biggest crowd to ever watch a Rugby World Cup match were treated to a classic on Sunday as Argentina pushed New Zealand all the way before the holders' class eventually earned them a 26-16 win in front of almost 90,000 fans at Wembley.

A day after Japan stunned South Africa, another huge upset looked a possibility as Argentina, who had never beaten the All Blacks, led the team who have never lost a World Cup pool game, until the 56th minute only for the favourites' mounting pressure to pay off with two tries.

Earlier Samoa ensured there would not be another shock in Brighton, the scene of Japan's heroics, as they beat the United States 25-16, while Wales demolished Uruguay 54-9 in Cardiff but suffered yet more injuries in the process.
