The famed ‘Hamrun Jeep’ captured in multiple videos during the Hamrun Spartans Football Club Premier League trophy celebrations in St. Joseph High Street is currently in a wrecked state after multiple people were seen jumping on its exterior on Thursday evening.

The Jeep served as a colour-appropriate platform for revelling Hamrun Spartans supporters after the Spartans’ BOV Premier League trophy presentation following a 30-year wait for Hamrun football supporters.

A former constable for the Malta Police Force has been accused of the rape of a fellow constable and the sexual assault of another constable from the Msida Police Department and has put forward a number of exceptions to annul the accusations against him by the Attorney General.

The former officer, whose name cannot be published due to a court order, is denying the accusations made against him between 2017 and 2019 for sexual acts on a 23-year-old and a 19-year-old constable and is also reported to have previously made rough advances, including the inappropriate groping of the colleagues.

Jul 2 2021 Share

Football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has, for the first time ever, topped the Instagram rich list as he can now charge up to £1.2million per post. With 303M followers and £1.16M per sponsored post, the Juventus player has topped the likes of Dwayne The Rock Johnson who stands at £1.1M per sponsored post. According to social media marketing firm Hopper HQ, Ronaldo can charge advertisers $1.6m – around £1.2million – for a post on his Instagram account.

With social media averts with Clear, LiveScore and Insparya (but definitely not Coca-Cola), Ronaldo managed to top The Rock, who is followed by Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner and Selena Gomez. The other football star on the list is Lionel Messi in 7th place, behind Kim Kardashian and before Beyonce. Justin Bieber and Kendal Jenner close off the list in 9th and 10th place.
