Football fans plan to sue Italian soccer club Juventus. The club had a contract to play Cristiano Ronaldo for 45 minutes in a game against a K League team, but he did not play. Fans want money. They sang the name of Ronaldo’s rival Lionel Messi at the game. One fan wrote: “I’m no longer a Ronaldo fan.”

The angry fans saw a lawyer in Seoul. They want $850 each for the stress of Ronaldo’s no-show. A lawyer said this was “a special case”. He said Juventus used “false advertising” to get Ronaldo’s fans to buy tickets. He added: “Some of the fans are very passionate. They are real fans….It is very painful because they love Ronaldo.”

K league – kay / lee / g

Ethiopia broke the world record for the most trees planted in a day. Ethiopians planted more than 350 million trees in just 12 hours on Monday. This smashed the record held by India by 50 million. Ethiopia’s government announced the record on Twitter. It revealed that people planted 353,633,660 trees. Ethiopia’s Prime Minister participated in the planting. He congratulated everyone involved in the record for their efforts and for helping the planet.

Ethiopia’s record is part of a strategy to plant 4 billion trees by October. So far, volunteers, businesses and government workers have planted over 2.6 billion trees. Ethiopia is trying to reverse the cutting down of its forests. Less than 4 per cent of Ethiopia’s land is forest. This is down from 30 per cent at the end of the 19th century. Planting billions of trees is the cheapest and most effective way to absorb carbon dioxide and tackle global warming.
