While the UK government initially announced that sport could continue as normal, the confirmation that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had tested positive for coronavirus led to an immediate suspension of the Premier League and EFL.

Mikel Arteta is said to be recovering following the diagnosis.

While they may not be playing football together, at least for the foreseeable future, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac teamed up on March 14 for some Fortnite Battle Royale.

The pair actually joined forces with professional player Berkay ‘Berki’ Sarioba, who represents M10 eSports – the organization owned by Mesut Ozil. 

M10 currently compete in both FIFA and Fortnite, boasting the recent acquisition of Duos World Cup winner ‘Nyhrox’ on their Fortnite roster. 

Many athletes are taking an increasing interest in video games, emphasized by the establishment of esports organizations in their names. Another example is Rise Nation, whose co-founder is NFL star Rodger Saffold, as well as Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, who started esports org Ellevens in February.

The Arsenal duo were carried by the professional players to a number of victories as they streamed on their respective channels.

However, they didn’t disgrace themselves either, supplementing the M10 pros with a number of decent plays.

Football and Fortnite fans were united to enjoy the pair’s streaming, despite the universal agreement that they’re not quite as good at Fortnite as they are football. 

With the Premier League’s return initially set for early April (dependent on the Coronavirus situation), we can expect to see the duo streaming together again in the near future.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
