Nottingham Forest were a team in what was then the Second Division of English football, but in three consecutive seasons, under their charismatic manager, Brian Clough, they were promoted to the First Division, then won the League title and then they became European Cup winners - champions of Europe.

The last 24 hours have brought the heaviest bombardment yet of Syria, by Russian fighter jets, but according to the United States, Russia has agreed to resume talks to ensure the two countries' forces don't clash during bombing campaigns over Syria.

The winners of this year's Nobel Peace Prize were announced yesterday and the Prize went to the leaders of the so-called Tunisian national dialogue quartet -- we find out who they are.
