  3. It's brain. Injecting the blood of young mice into older rodents boosted their brainpower, a study found.
  4. It's a baguette. Morrisons was forced to apologise for the stunt after it was criticised by the sculpture's designer Antony Gormley as well as social media users.
  5. It was an outbreak of head lice. Six out of 16 child performers were affected, the New York Post reported.

  7. It's a men's football team. Costa was named head coach of French Ligue 2 team Clermont Foot. In 1999 Carolina Morace took charge of Italian Serie C1 side Viterbese for two matches.
