Alan however continued to brush off the concerns of those around him and urged everyone to return to the game, which they did. And the Growing Pains star still thought he was going to be fine even while being taken away on the stretcher, making Carter snap a photo of him as he was taken into the ambulance because he thought it was funny.

EXCLUSIVE: Ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails - they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for 'disgusted' Democratic insiders
Craig Murray (left), former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and associate of Julian Assange (right), told the Dailymail.com he personally received Clinton campaign emails in Washington D.C. after they were leaked by 'disgusted' whisteblowers - and not hacked by Russia. He claims he had a clandestine hand-off in a wooded area near American University with one of the email sources. The leakers' motivation, he says, was 'disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the 'tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.' Murray says: 'The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks. But regardless of whether the Russians hacked into the DNC, the documents Wikileaks published did not come from that,' Murray insists.

How HAS Mad Mel pulled off Hollywood's most unlikely comeback? Vile racist rants and domestic abuse destroyed his career. Now he's nominated for a Golden Globe
Audience members said the cast and crew of Gibson's World War II movie, Hacksaw Ridge, were 'overwhelmed' as they soaked up the plaudits earlier this year. And none more so, one can be certain, than its director, Mel Gibson (with girlfriend Rosalind Ross, right). It seemed a return to his glory days as Hollywood's most bankable name as he walked out of the Sala Grande theatre to find screaming fans waiting not for the film's stars, Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn, but for him. Gibson is engaged in one of the most delicate comebacks in Tinseltown history. After a decade in the wilderness he looks to have finally shrugged off an ugly past of anti-Semitic and racist outbursts, and incidents of domestic violence that few felt could be excused by Gibson's rampant alcoholism (drinking at a party, left).

A video by Harvard physicist Dr Greg Kestin shows that just one tablespoon of olive oil poured over water can spread out within minutes, calming the waves around you. The oil spreads out to form a layer just one molecule thick because oil molecules are double sided: one end is attracted to water and so flips towards it, and the other end stands upright because it's repelled by water.
