    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's 'super jelly' — a bizarre new material that can survive being run over by a car even though it's composed of 80 per cent water. The 'glass-like hydrogel' may look and feel like a squishy jelly, but when compressed it acts like shatterproof glass, its University of Cambridge developers said. It is formed using a network of polymers held together by a series of reversible chemical interactions that can be tailored to control the gel's mechanical properties. This is the first time that a soft material has been produced that is capable of such significant resistance to compressive forces.  Super jelly could find various applications, the team added, from use for building soft robotics and bioelectronics through to replacement for damaged cartilage.  The team have already used their new material to create a hydrogel pressure sensor, which, when placed underfoot, can monitor subjects walking, standing and jumping.

    THE first time that I encountered Jurgen Klopp, he actually gave our Watford team an extra psychological edge. The German with the Colgate smile had only been at Liverpool for two months when he turned up at Vicarage Road in December 2015. 4Jurgen Klopp watches opposition teams warm-up with a great deal of intentCredit: Getty 4Troy Deeney was a part of a Watford side that beat Liverpool 3-0 six years agoCredit: PA:Press Association So we weren’t aware of his habit of standing on the halfway line and staring out the opposition team during the pre-match warm-up. I remember a couple of team-mates saying, ‘What the f*** is he doing, staring at us?’ We thought he was trying to wind us up, it seemed to give us a bit of extra motivation and we ended up winning 3-0. Now I realise Klopp is not trying to psyche out the opposition when he watches the warm-up. He is studying what patterns of play and tactics they might be working on, looking for that extra one per cent. That’s because Klopp is an...

    THE AstraZeneca vaccine is 97 per cent effective at dealing with the Indian variant of the Covid, a new study has found. The UK has now recorded 1,313 cases of the strain and Health Secretary Matt Hancock has repeated his plea for people who have not yet been vaccinated to get the jab. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest updates 3A member of the public being vaccinated in BoltonCredit: AFP 3Matt Hancock has urged people to get vaccinatedCredit: Getty He said "vast majority" of people diagnosed with the super-infectious Indian mutation in hotspots Bolton and Blackburn haven't had the vaccine - despite being eligible. The Health Secretary says he has a "high degree of confidence" that the jab does work against the new variant, which could be up to 50 per cent more transmissible than the Kent strain. A study 3,235 vaccinated healthcare workers in India given the AstraZeneca found that just 85 reported symptoms of Covid and just two required hospital treatment.

    CANELO ALVAREZ reckons 90 per cent of Brits wants to see him batter Billy Joe Saunders on Saturday. Mexico’s WBC, WBA and pound-for-pound king faces Britain’s undefeated 30-0 WBO champ in his Texas backyard in a red-hot clash. 3Canelo Alvarez and Billy Joe Saunders go toe-to-toe on SaturdayCredit: Michelle Farsi/matchroom. Over the years Saunders, 31, has hounded the 30-year-old over his ginger hair and his 2018 doping ban - which he blamed on contaminated beef - with the softly-spoken four-weight icon choosing to ignore his abuse. In 2017, at a London press conference to promote Canelo vs Gennady Golovkin I, Saunders gatecrashed the event and hurled abuse at his potential rival in person. Now, after rows over the 70,000 crowd, the judging panel and the ring size, Canelo admitted he is extra motivated to hurt Saunders, rather than just defeat him, and he believes most of the UK are on his side. When Eddie Hearn asked Canelo about Saunders’ popularity on his podcast, he said: “90 per cent of the people don't like him. “This fight is different because he...
    ROGER FEDERER hopes to be 100 per cent fit for Wimbledon but accepts his right knee will dictate his tennis comeback. And speaking five months before his 40th birthday, the Swiss maestro has revealed that a long-awaited return to the ATP Tour has been driven by a desire to “go out on my terms”. 3Roger Federer is in a race to be fit for WimbledonCredit: Getty Images - Getty Since losing to Novak Djokovic in the 2020 Australian Open semi-finals, Federer has undergone double knee surgery. His first match for 13 months will be against either British No.1 Dan Evans or Frenchman Jeremy Chardy in the Qatar Open second round this week. Reassuringly, he claims he is now “injury-free and pain-free”. And those hoping to be eating punnets of strawberries and cream in SW19 on Henman Hill this summer should be rewarded with a sight of the eight-time champion in action. Federer said: “From this standpoint, it’s about building up to being stronger, better, fitter, faster. “So, I hope by Wimbledon I’ll be 100% and from then on the season...
    How did you sleep last night? The chances are, not very well. At times of increased anxiety or financial stress, if your routine has been disrupted or you’ve drunk more booze then is normal, then a good night’s rest is the first thing to go. It’s no wonder, then, that the coronavirus has made insomniacs of us. A survey commissioned by sleep scientist Dr Guy Meadows at The Sleep School reported that 42 per cent of its 3,000 respondents think their sleep has worsened since the pandemic began. More than half said they were now ‘dissatisfied with their sleep’, citing ‘work worries’ as the main reason. Other studies report even higher figures. According to the British Sleep Society, about three-quarters of us have seen a change in sleep habits since we first heard the word ‘coronavirus’, and less than half are getting refreshing sleep. Four writers reveal how they're dealing with Covid-­somnia, as it's revealed 42 per cent of people have had worse sleep since the pandemic (file image) On social media, traffic is increasing at night as hashtags such as...
    Ultra-processed foods — such as ready meals and junk food like crisps and fizzy drinks — can lead to a 58 per cent increased risk of heart failure, a study has warned. Experts from Italy studied the diets and health of 22,000 people — finding that regular consumption of such foods increased premature death rates by 26 per cent. A staple of the common supermarket, processed foods are popular because they are easy to manufacture, cheap to purchase and tasty to eat.  Processed ready meals are often a lot quicker to cook — and can be readied in the microwave in less than 10 minutes compared to 30–40 minutes of regular meal prep. While many criticisms have been levied at the high sugar content typical of processed foods, the problems may come from the processing itself, the team said. Heart and circulatory diseases are responsible for a quarter of all deaths — or 170,000 individuals — in the UK each year. Ultra-processed foods — such as ready meals (pictured) and junk food like crisps and fizzy drinks — can lead...
    NATHANIEL WOOD is back on UFC Fight Island - for the second time this year.

    Airliners could reap fuel savings of up to 10 per cent — along with a corresponding decrease in emissions — by flying in formation like birds, Airbus has revealed. The concept — which the European aerospace firm has dubbed fello'fly — will see planes fly relatively close behind each other, so the trailing craft can get free lift. This comes from the smooth updraught that flows around on the edges of the leading aircraft's more turbulent wake.  Tests — which will involve two of Airbus' A350 aircraft — will begin this year, and move to trial runs in oceanic airspace as early as 2021, the firm said. If successful, the firm hopes to add the manoeuvres to regular service by around 2015 — a move that could cut aviation CO2 emissions by 3–4 million tons per year. However, the firm will first need buy-in from air traffic service providers and regulating authorities to allow craft to fly closer together than they do today.  Scroll down for video  Airliners could reap fuel savings of up to 10 per cent — along...
    Women with the faulty breast cancer gene BRCA have, on average, a 35 per cent risk of developing breast cancer, a new study claims.     Researchers at Harvard studied the impact specific genetic variants have on breast cancer, coronary heart disease and colon cancer.  It revealed that for women with either BRCA1 or BRCA2, the chance of getting diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 75 ranges from 13 to 76 per cent. The study found the presence of either gene did increase the likelihood of developing breast cancer, but by how much varies considerably by individual.     For women without this mutated gene, the average risk was 10 per cent, but ranges from 3.3 per cent to 29.6 per cent.   In 2013, actress Angelina Jolie decided to undergo a double mastectomy – surgery to remove both breasts – after after learning she had a BRCA1 mutation.  She was told at the time that her risk of developing breast cancer was 87 per cent.   Scroll down for video  Angelina Jolie carried a faulty gene, BRCA1, which sharply increased her risk of...
