Transcript

Hillary Clinton has claimed victory in the race to become the Democratic Party's candidate for the White House. President Obama has called to congratulate her on securing enough delegates to contest November's election. She'll be the first woman to run for president for any major political party in the US.

Chelsea and their former manager, Jose Mourinho, have reached a settlement with the former team doctor, Eva Carneiro. She claims she was forced to resign last season because she was demoted and said that she was victimised by Mr Mourinho. On Monday it emerged she'd turned down an earlier settlement offer of almost two million dollars.

Let's take a look at these spectacular pictures. They were taken off the east coast of Australia where recent deadly storms have created huge swells. Sixteen of the world's best surfers made the most of these conditions, tackling waves up to five metres high.

Transcrição em português

Hillary Clinton se declarou vencedora da corrida pela candidatura do Partido Democrata para a Casa Branca. O presidente Obama ligou para felicitá-la por ter conseguido garantir o número suficiente de delegados para disputar a eleição de novembro. Ela será a primeira mulher a concorrer à Presidência por um dos grandes partidos dos EUA.

O clube de futebol Chelsea e seu ex-técnico José Mourinho chegaram a um acordo com a ex-médica do time, Eva Carneiro. Ela alega ter sido forçada a renunciar na temporada passada após ser rebaixada e diz ter sido tratada de forma injusta por Mourinho. Na segunda-feira foi revelado que ela tinha recusado uma oferta anterior de acordo de quase US$ 2 milhões.

Vamos dar uma olhada nessas fotos espetaculares. Elas foram tiradas perto da costa leste da Austrália onde tempestades recentes provocaram grandes ondulações. Dezesseis dos maiores surfistas do mundo tiraram proveito dessas condições, enfrentando ondas de até cinco metros.
