(CNN) Cesc Fabregas is well known for his technical ability and eye for a pass but the Spanish soccer star has turned his attention to a very different part of the game. The AS Monaco midfielder was one of the judges at this year's Red Bull Street Style World Championship, a tournament that pits the world's best soccer freestylers against each other. Amid the pandemic, the competition went digital and World Cup winner Fabregas appeared live as a hologram. "It's a completely different competition of what I'm used to," Fabregas told CNN Sport. "The amount of pressure that these guys are (under), they are doing the skills and they know the world is watching and that they cannot make any mistake because every little mistake can punish you."

But when it came, the Lagos State government's security camera footage of the Lekki toll gate shooting did not capture everything. The surveillance footage once again raises questions about the investigation into what happened at the Lekki toll gate protest -- and why surveillance video from the evening does not provide a more complete picture. The army has repeatedly said the soldiers deployed to the toll gate fired into the air and not at protesters directly. CNN's investigation had revealed the use of live ammunition at the toll gate, based on analysis carried out by ballistics experts and conversations with military sources. "It had nothing whatsoever to do with the Lekki toll gate," he said.

(CNN) Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued his prolific form by scoring twice in AC Milan's 3-1 victory against Napoli on Sunday. The 39-year-old netted a trademark bullet header and a close-range volley either side of halftime to bring his impressive tally up to 10 goals in six league games this season. However, there was a sour end to AC Milan's night as Ibrahimovic left the pitch early after suffering a leg injury. "I don't have much information, he had ice on his thigh and we'll see in the next few days what the tests say," AC Milan's assistant coach Daniele Bonera told Sky Sports after the game. "He isn't someone who usually comes off the pitch."

Hong Kong/New Delhi (CNN Business) Netflix (NFLX) is facing a backlash in India over a now-infamous kissing scene in one of its shows. The exchange takes place in the series, "A Suitable Boy," an adaptation of the award-winning novel by Indian author Vikram Seth, which was released on the streaming service last month. The story follows the love life of a young Hindu woman and at one point, depicts her being kissed by a Muslim man at a Hindu temple. That has proven controversial for some viewers in India, including Hindu nationalist politicians. "This has extremely objectionable content which hurts the sentiments of people of a particular religion," said Mishra, who is a member of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The companies said in a joint statement that tests of a train equipped with a new hydrogen drive will commence in 2024 and run for one year. The train, which is called the Mireo Plus H, will run between three cities in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, replacing a conventional diesel-powered unit running on the route. Deutsche Bahn operates around 1,300 diesel trains in regional service, and roughly 40% of its 33,000 kilometer (20,500 mile) rail network has not yet been electrified -— meaning trains can't run using overhead power lines. The company plans to eliminate diesel trains from its network by 2050. An image of the Mireo Plus H provided by Siemens.
