Cheers and a standing ovation greeted the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, as she returned to work today after a month-long absence caused first by a stomach virus, then a fall and a concussion and finally a brief hospitalisation for a blot clot near her brain.

Some 75 State Department officials greeted Ms Clinton with a double gift – a white American football helmet emblazoned with the State Department seal, and a blue football jersey bearing the number 112 – the record-breaking number of countries she has visited since becoming Secretary of State.
