Nigeria has criticized the UK’s travel restrictions after it was placed on the red list amid fears over the Omicron COVID-19 variant. “What is expected is a global approach, not selective,” Sarafa Tunji Isola, Nigeria’s high commissioner to the UK, said on Monday. He also echoed comments made by the UN’s chief, who described restrictions imposed on some southern African countries as “travel apartheid.”
New rules came into force on Monday morning. It means travelers arriving from Nigeria will be required to enter hotel quarantine — at their own expense — and isolate for 10 days. UK government minister Kit Malthouse, meanwhile, said the wording “travel apartheid” was “very unfortunate language.”

The German Football Association is investigating England midfielder Jude Bellingham’s comments about referee Felix Zwayer after Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 defeat by Bayern Munich. Bellingham, 18, questioned Zwayer’s appointment, referring to his six-month ban for a match-fixing scandal in 2005.
Zwayer rejected Dortmund’s appeals for a penalty before giving their rivals a spot-kick for a Mats Hummels handball. Robert Lewandowski scored the penalty to secure victory for Bayern. Speaking to the media, Bellingham said: “You give a referee, that has match fixed before, the biggest game in Germany. What do you expect?”
The DFB control committee have written to Bellingham and asked him to comment on his statements “as soon as possible.” Once Bellingham’s response has been evaluated, the control committee will decide what action to take.
