Picture News: Should sports stars be expected to give interviews?

Good morning,

I hope you have all had a fantastic weekend in the sunshine!

This week's Picture News is about female tennis player, Naomi Osaka. Naomi has withdrawn from the French Open tennis tournament after the controversy over her refusal to speak to the media at the tournament. The 23-year-old Japanese player said last week she would not do news conferences at the event to protect her mental health.

This week's British value is MUTUAL RESPECT and TOLERENCE.
