KUALA LUMPUR, Sept. 3 (Xinhua) -- Badminton World Federation (BWF) President and Olympic gold medalist Poul-Erik Hoyer Larsen revealed on Thursday that he is receiving treatment after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
Members of the US women's team filed a lawsuit against their federation in March because of alleged discrimination over wages. A federal judge ruled against the players, who have since lodged an appeal.
"I didn't realize at all that it was unauthorized," Alaphilippe said, "But if that's how it is, then no worries. I'll pick myself up again and we'll forget about it."
The hosts added their third goal when Daniel Sampaio latched onto Marco Antonio's pass to slot home in stoppage time.
Alaphilippe had led Yates by four seconds when the race was finished and looked to have retained the yellow jersey, but television footage showed him taking a bottle from a Deceuninck-Quick Step team support member with 17.8km to go - under the rules of cycling's world governing body UCI, riders are not allowed to take on food or drink in the final 20km of a race.
"It's top players, so if you wait for the mistake it's never going to happen," Garcia said. "If you let Pliskova breeze and take your serve, you're never going to make a return, and then it's 6-4, 6-4 and you're done in one hour."
Fiorentina loanee Pedro put the visitors ahead in just the second minute by pouncing on an errant pass and sliding home from close range.
"The Premier League confirms that it has today terminated its agreements for Premier League coverage in China with its license in that territory, the Premier League will not be commenting further on the matter at this stage," read a statement.

LAUSANNE, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- Armand Duplantis from Sweden set a season's best 6.07 meters in the pole vault at the Wanda Diamond League meeting here on Wednesday, securing the highest outdoor pole vault jump for 26 years.
"In the end it got too dark to go for 6.15 meters and I felt it was unsafe to continue any further," said the world silver medalist. "I felt I was in the zone. But you have to be prudent."
