Cambodia seized more than 3.2 tonnes of elephant tusks hidden in a storage container sent from Mozambique, a customs official said on Sunday, marking the country’s largest ivory bust. The discovery of 1,026 tusks at the Phnom Penh port followed a tip from the US embassy, the official said, and highlights Cambodia’s emergence as a key regional transit point for the multibillion dollar trade in illicit wildlife. The ivory arrived at the port last year, but the unidentified owner of the shipment did not arrive to pick up the cargo. The largest before this week occurred in 2014, when Cambodian customs seized about three tonnes of ivory hidden in a container of beans at the south-western port of Sihanoukville.

Liverpool have returned to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 victory over Manchester United, earning the win through a couple of deflected strikes from substitute Xherdan Shaqiri. The Swiss international was brought on 20 minutes from time and made a huge impact on the game, putting the Reds back in front 144 seconds after being introduced and sealing Liverpool’s 14th league win of the season with a second late on. United, previously unbeaten in their previous eight meetings with Liverpool in all competitions, managed just two shots on target - one of those being Jesse Lingard's close-range finish from an Alisson Becker howler to cancel out Sadio Mane's opener. Shaqiri became the first Liverpool player to score multiple goals in a home Premier League game in this fixture since Dirk Kuyt in March 2011.

Charlie Austin scores the match-winning goal for Southampton against Arsenal. Southampton on Sunday ended Arsenal's 22-game unbeaten streak with a 3-2 win in a thrilling Premier League fixture at St Mary's. Danny Ings twice gave the Saints the lead only for two Henrikh Mkhitaryan goals to get Arsenal back on level terms, but Austin headed home a late winner to hand Ralph Hasenhuttl his first win since his arrival at the club. Southampton now move out of the relegation zone with just their second success of the campaign, while Arsenal remain fifth having suffered their first defeat in any competition since the second weekend of the season.

Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez completed a clinical stoppage win over Rocky Fielding in the third round to claim the WBA 'regular' super-middleweight title in New York. The Mexican star stepped up in weight to challenge Fielding, who was floored in every round before the fight was waved off, as Alvarez claimed a version of a world title in a third division. Fielding was making the first defence of the belt he won by stoppage against Tyron Zeuge in July and the Englishman was troubled by a sustained body assault from the start at Madison Square Garden. In the opening round, it was a crunching shot to the ribs from Alvarez that sent him down. Fielding bravely stood and traded in the second, only to be sent back down to the canvas by another body shot. Fielding tried to answer with his own flurries in the third, but Alvarez packed too much power as a right hook dropped the Liverpudlian heavily and the referee mercifully called a halt after he was floored again by a left hook to the body.

Conservative Party MP and chairman of the European Research Group (ERG) Jacob Rees-Mogg speaks at a political rally organised by the pro-Brexit Leave Means Leave campaign group in central London on December 14, 2018. The Leave Means Leave group, supported by political figures like ERG chairman Jacob Rees-Mogg and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, held a political rally to “Save Brexit” as the latest Brexit summit in Brussels leaves Theresa May facing a dwindling number of options over Britain’s exit from the EU. The 27 leaders made abundantly clear to the British prime minister that the draft withdrawal agreement they reached after nearly two years of talks was not open to change.

Spanish prosecutors have charged the Colombian singer and philanthropist Shakira with tax evasion, alleging she avoided €14.5m in taxes by claiming to live in the Bahamas while actually resident in Catalonia. Shakira changed residences in 2015 from the Bahamas to Barcelona, where she lives with her partner, the Barcelona footballer Gerard Piqué, and the couple’s two sons. But prosecutors allege that she was already living in the Catalan capital between 2012 and 2014, and should have paid tax on her worldwide income for those years in Spain. The Grammy award winner, who set up the Bare Foot foundation for underprivileged children in 1997, is the latest star to face legal action over their tax affairs. In July 2016, the Barcelona footballer Lionel Messi, and his father, Jorge, were given suspended 21-month sentences after being found guilty of evading tax on the player’s image rights. The suspended sentences were later replaced with fines. Five months ago, the former Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo agreed to plead guilty to tax fraud and pay a fine of nearly €19m in exchange for a two-year suspended prison sentence.
