In the final episode of the first series of Glee last Monday, it was revealed that the bitchy teacher Sue Sylvester was writing a memoir called I'm a Winner, and You're Fat.

When Spain paraded the European Championship trophy around Vienna's Ernst Happel Stadium, the massed ranks of their supporters began an acapella version of the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army".

If you're looking for a football-free holiday in Europe, try Sweden, Croatia or, er, Scotland.
