British PM Boris Johnson marries fiancee in secret ceremony: Reports

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson married his fiancee Carrie Symonds in a secret ceremony at Westminster Cathedral on Saturday, the Sun and Mail on Sunday newspapers reported.

The Catholic cathedral was suddenly locked down at 1.30pm (9.30pm Singapore time) and Symonds, 33, arrived 30 minutes later in a limo, in a long white dress with no veil, both reports said.

Brentford promoted to EPL after Swansea City playoff victory

London club Brentford ended years of heartbreak to seal their place in the top flight for the first time in 74 years thanks to a dominant 2-0 win over Swansea City in the Championship playoff final on Saturday.

Ivan Toney’s early penalty and a goal on the counter-attack by Emiliano Marcondes put Brentford in command with only 20 minutes on the clock and they were rarely threatened.
