A man disguised as an old woman smeared cake over the iconic and historic Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum in Paris, with images and videos of the act going viral on Sunday. 

This despite the fact that the cake simply collided with the glass that protects the painting dated to 1503 and crated by Leonardo da Vinci. 

According to eye witness testimonies, the man was in a wheelchair wearing a wig. However, to the surprise of other guests, the man stood up and approached La Gioconda, tossing the cake at her.

Security charged the man to move him out of the Louvre, as guests at the museum went wild with photographs and videos. The painting was thankfully unaffected as it was protected by the safety glass. 

However, the man did try to destroy the display case, resorting to smearing the baked good over the glass and sprinkling roses on the floor before being knocked to the ground. 

According to initial reports, the motives of the man seemed to be related to activism as he went on to shout; ‘some people are trying to destroy the Earth! Think of the Earth!.’ This is not the first time the painting was attacked, as it was doused with acid back in 1956.

After a confusing weekend in terms of weather which saw strong winds, rain and even thunderous gusts in some localities on the island, the Maltese better brace for the first heat wave for summer 2022!

The first heat wave for this summer has officially started, thanks to high pressures making their way from Northern Africa and expanding to the Central Mediterranean.

Expect hot weather higher than the normal seasonal average by around 3 to 8 degrees. The least hottest day of the week is set to be today, Monday 30th, at 29 degrees Celsius. Wednesday is set to be a blistering 35 degrees. 

Sea temperatures are also set to increase significantly after a rather cold bout earlier this month. It is currently at an average of 20 degrees Celsius, which is the same as the seasonal average for the start of June.
