Curated by our Picture Desk, we catch you up on the news and stories from across the globe. From uncovering stunning creative images, diving deep into the major news stories to the moments to remember from the sporting world.

Monday was this year’s International Women’s Day, and we in Berlin had a public holiday. Whilst many people around the world celebrated this day with loved ones or paid homage to women in their lives, thousands too took to the streets in cities across the globe to demonstrate and fight for women’s rights. Mexico saw some of the largest crowds as female activists marched, sang and danced in support of women. In their capital, protests turned violent with at least 81 people injured. Armed with blowtorches and hammers, demonstrators took to the president’s residence and confronted police lines demanding for the Mexican government to take action against one of the world’s worst rates of gender violence.

In the States, Pro Trump Rally supporters gathered outside of Trump Towers as the former president visited New York City for the first time after leaving office. Unravelling a huge ‘Trump 2024’ and chanting through the streets of Manhattan, Trump supporters held signs welcoming him back home and thanking him.

Today is also the final day of Paris Fashion week. Mostly digital this year, the fall edition was full of street style highlights alongside brands and models walking in online catwalks. A few shows took place live and in person with minimal and socially distanced audiences including Gabriela Hearst’s first show for Chloé which took place outdoors.

In sport, Marek Hamsik was welcomed by fans after a press conference with IFK Gothenburg. Although they have not officially completed their signing of the former star and Naples idol player, his return from a Chinese football team is much celebrated in Europe.

The European Athletics indoor Championships was underway over the weekend, with a record 733 athletes registering for the continental championships, attracting 17 reigning European indoor champions.

Players and spectators were seen during an international Ice hockey match on the frozen Lake Baikal lake near the village of Bolshoye Goloustnoye. Russia’s Irkutsk region has announced that 2021 will be the Year of Baikal. To bring attention to Baikal’s environmental issues, Irkutsk region governor Kobzev and UN Environment Patron for Polar regions and former ice hockey player Fetisov have agreed to organize annual ice hockey matches featuring famous Russian athletes on Lake Baikal.
