Many songs were written about the legend that is Diego Maradona. As a musical tribute to a great footballer, here’s my version of one of the most famous Maradona songs: La mano de Dios. Rest in peace Diego. @BBCNews @BBCWorld @BBCSport @bbcmundo #Maradona

At my local Moscow supermarket, I just bought this patriotic Russian board game for little kids, featuring nuclear missile silos and declarations that “Our enemies will never beat us!” The perfect Christmas gift? @BBCNews @BBCWorld

Personally I prefer Snakes & Ladders.

It's an open-and-shut case: from Bergerac to The Bill, British TV has created some brilliant detective dramas. It would be criminal not to celebrate their signature tunes on #WorldTelevisionDay. So here we go: 'Do Re Mi Fa So LAW Ti Do!" @BBCNewsEnts @BBCNews @BBCRadio2

I’ve only met a BBC Director-General once. It was 35 years ago today, when Alasdair Milne invited a BBC-crazy school kid from Chingford to Broadcasting House. Busy guy, but he still found time to reply to my letter & meet me. Never forgotten that. @BBC @BBCNews @BBCWorld

Richard Baker was one of my BBC heroes. The affable, unflappable newsreader, who also narrated kids’ shows & played the piano. I wrote to him when I was 7 & he sent me a signed photo. I was so excited. Now, so sad to hear of his death. RIP Richard. Here’s my musical tribute.

BBC newsreader Richard Baker died two years ago today. This was my musical tribute to a BBC legend.

We speak to Maia Sandu, winner of Moldova's presidential election. She'd like #Moldova to join the EU. Would Russia stand by & let that happen? "We have the right to choose what we want for our country" she says.

Moldova’s President-Elect speaks to the BBC. @BBCNews @BBCWorld @bbcworldservice

The Kremlin may be slow in congratulating America’s new leader. But it’s been quick to reach out to Moldova’s new president. Vladimir Putin has sent Maia Sandu a telegram wishing her good luck & calling for “constructive development of relations.”

In Moldova’s presidential election, all the votes have been counted. Big win for the pro-EU candidate over the Kremlin-backed incumbent:
57.75% = Maia Sandu
42.25% = Igor Dodon

Judging by Russian state TV, Moscow thinks it has outmanoeuvred Turkey over Karabakh. We’ll see. Anchor says: “Turkey’s participation (in the region) will be kept to small doses due to Russia’s strong position & Putin’s unique ability to curb the appetite of our partners.”

In the end, Vladimir Putin’s good luck wishes to Moldova’s pro-Russian president don’t appear to have brought him much luck: Igor Dodon is heading for defeat in the presidential election. Maia Sandu’s on track to become Moldova’s next president.

Just reached Moldova & heard the sad news Des O’Connor has died. What a great entertainer he was. Found a hotel, as a tribute, is one of his greatest hits. Rest in peace Des. (P.S. The Greek national football team is sitting listening & sends condolences.) @BBCNews

Today we saw Russian peacekeepers in Dadivank, Kelbajar district. Their mission: to protect the Armenian monastery there ahead of the district being handed back to Azerbaijan.
