'Where's Jaycee Chan' game goes viral

A screengrab of the 'Where's Jaycee' online game which debuted after news of Jaycee Chan's drug-related arrest.

Where's singer-actor Jaycee Chan? 

The real answer to that, of course, is most likely a cell somewhere, being interrogated for the names of his other celebrity friends who use drugs

But on the Internet, that question has been turned into a fun 'Where's Wally'-type game that has gone viral, being played over 60 million times since its release Tuesday, reports the BBC. 

The aim of the game? To find the one picture of Chan amid a sea of pictures of his good friend, Taiwanese actor Kai Ko Chen-Tung. 

Chan, of course, was arrested last week alongside Ko in an ongoing crackdown of celebrity drug use in China. 

In the game, which is called 'The National Search for Jaycee', you have 60 seconds to find and click on Chan's picture. As the game progresses, more and more Ko pictures pop up to distract you from your mission. 

According to the BBC, the game proved popular on Chinese messaging app WeChat.

One WeChat user was quoted as saying: "It's a great shame about his career but I had fun playing the game; it seemed pointless but proved to be very addictive."

Atletico Madrid gained some measure of revenge for their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid by beating their city rivals 1-0 at the Vicente Calderon on Friday (Aug 22) to win the Spanish Super Cup 2-1 on aggregate. 

The hosts made the best possible start as Mario Mandzukic volleyed home the winner from Antoine Griezmann’s pass after just 90 seconds. 

Real boss Carlo Ancelotti had named Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench due to the effects of a hamstring injury that had seen him withdrawn from the first leg. 

Ancelotti also Fueled speculation over Angel di Maria’s future, by excluding the Argentine from his squad entirely. 

However, he claimed Di Maria’s absence had purely been for sporting reasons. “Di Maria was a technical decision. I didn’t need him today.” 

Atletico boss Diego Simeone was sent off midway through the first-half for protesting that right-back Juanfran hadn’t been allowed back onto the field quickly enough after receiving treatment for a facial injury.

The Argentine could be in for a severe ban as he confronted the assistant referee and sarcastically applauded the decision.

However, he apologised and admitted he had overreacted at the time. 

“When you commit an error you have to ask for forgiveness and I accept it was an error,” he said.

The victory was Atletico’s first at home against Real in 15 years and continued Simeone’s amazing run of success since taking charge of the club just under three years ago. 

However, he again downplayed expectations that Atletico can repeat their amazing La Liga title triumph of last season. 

“When you play in a league that is so long against Real Madrid or Barcelona it is very difficult to compete, but in one or two games we have the capability to beat anybody.”

Work permit delays Rojo's Man United debut

Argentine defender Marcos Rojo will not feature for Manchester United against Sunderland because he has not been issued a work permit.
Argentine defender Marcos Rojo will not feature for Manchester United against Sunderland because he has not been issued a work permit.

Manchester United fans will have to wait a little longer to see Marcos Rojo in action after Louis van Gaal confirmed that the new arrival from Sporting Lisbon will miss their upcoming match against Sunderland.

Despite declaring that the Argentine World Cup star was ready for action, the Red Devils boss revealed that Rojo will not play because he has not yet been issued a work permit.

Speaking to MUTV, van Gaal said: "Rojo is fit and ready to play but he doesn't have a work permit so we have to wait."

Midfield crisis

Rojo's omission is certainly another blow for United, who have a mounting injury crisis in midfield.

While the overall number of players in the treatment room has dropped from nine to seven, Marouane Fellaini, Jesse Lingard and summer signing Ander Herrera have been ruled out through injury.

The Dutchman said: "It's (the injuries) much too much. I have had this as a manager for the first time. We have to live with this.

"We have four injured midfielders - Carrick, from the beginning, but now also Herrera, Fellaini and Lingard. So these four are injured and we are thin on midfielders now."

However, there was some good news as van Gaal revealed that star striker Robin van Persie was fit to return against the Black Cats.

Mackay probe escalates as Cardiff call for LMA chief to resign

Malky Mackay is at the centre of a scandal involving several offensive text messages.
Malky Mackay is at the centre of a scandal involving several offensive text messages.

Cardiff City have called for League Managers' Association (LMA) chief executive Richard Bevan to step down as the storm surrounding Malky Mackay's offensive texts scandal escalated.

Mackay allegedly shared racist, sexist and homophobic text messages with Iain Moody during their time at the Cardiff City Stadium, prompting the LMA to release a statement on behalf of the Scot.

However, the body was forced to issue an apology after the statement said the offensive messages were merely "friendly text message banter" as Mackay was "letting off steam to a friend".

Cardiff were far from impressed, however, prompting them to demand Bevan's resignation.

A statement issued on behalf of Cardiff by law firm Mishcon de Reya read: "We...find it entirely reprehensible that the LMA should itself put out a statement which seeks to dismiss deeply offensive racist comments as 'friendly banter'.

"If that is the view held by the LMA, as appears from its statement, we consider that Richard Bevan's position is untenable and we call for his resignation."

Fallout continues

The news of the scandal appeared to scupper Mackay's chances of landing a job with Crystal Palace while Moody resigned from his post as the Eagles' sporting director.

Another manager who could find himself next in the firing line is QPR boss Harry Redknapp, who tried to defend Mackay.

However, his choice of words were far from ideal.

Redknapp said: "He's not murdered anyone, he's not a rapist or a paedophile.

"He's made a big mistake. It shouldn’t finish his life or his football career. It’s going to take time for him to get back into the game. People get second chances in life who have committed bad crimes. Why shouldn't he? He's made a mistake but we're not going to hang him for it, are we?

"Obviously someone is after him, ain't they? They are certainly not giving up, that's for sure."
