Cruz, R-Texas, and other critics of the $60 billion Sandy aid package claimed that it was wasteful spending. "What was wrong was for Ted Cruz to exploit the disaster for political gain - that's what he was doing".

A fee of around £35m was agreed with Arsenal for Oxlade-Chamberlain earlier this week and Chelsea had initially been confident they would deflect Liverpool's interest to secure the England global. "In the past year, he has made huge progress and personally I want him to stay here for a long time ".

That is the dream scenario for Liverpool fans with the transfer window shutting tomorrow.

Although he said he was focused on the US Open , Kyrgios said he had not always been dedicated, citing his behaviour at the Cincinnati Open, where he reached the final.
