The government's key witness in the corruption trial for former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell took the stand Wednesday under the cloak of immunity, and he was expected to lay out prosecutors' case in the gifts-for favors scandal.
Olympic champions Kirani James and Greg Rutherford brought world-class performances to the Commonwealth Games on Wednesday while Usain Bolt hit back at claims that he'd made disparaging remarks about the event. James won the men's 400m to give Grenada its first Commonwealth Games gold and became the first man to win gold in the discipline at both Olympic and Commonwealth level. "I am happy for my country and everyone affiliated to us," said 21-year-old James who took gold ahead of Wayde van Niekerk of South Africa and Trinidad's Lalonde Gordon.
