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.

In the last weekend before the Christmas period, COVID restrictions were tightened throughout Europe and families desperately attempted to be together. IMAGO photographers from all corners of the world showcased the effects lockdowns and testing is having on communities.

Culture prevailed this weekend as artists from Rome gathered in support of the street artist, Geco, who recently was identified and reported to police for damage to the city. Artists and supporters alike came together in Tor Bella Monaca, a suburban neighbourhood, along the painted wall to protest the accusation. And in China, the world University Student Fashion Design Competition took place on Friday to showcase the talents of the year.

Tributes were held in Beirut to show thanks and support to the Lebanese firefighters.
Firefighters and soldiers gathered on Sunday afternoon to pay tribute to the firefighters who fought and served during the explosion earlier this year.

As Germany’s hard lock down is now in full effect with many staying put in cities, in sport, the Bundesliga reportedly allowed restricted access to photographers and saw wins for SC Freiburg and Wolfsburg on Sunday. Finland’s Juho Olkinuora conceded a goal in their Euro Hockey match against Russia and some of the world’s best freestyle skiers competed in Val Thorens on the road to the Olympic Games.

Take a look at this weekend’s roundup.
