LONDON (AP) — The U.K. has become the first country in Europe to pass 100,000 coronavirus-related deaths. With more than 2 million dead worldwide, people the world over are mourning loved ones, but the U.K.’s toll weighs particularly heavily: It is the smallest nation to pass the grim milestone. For comparison, the United States, with five times Britain’s population, has four times the number of deaths. Alongside excess deaths comes excess grief, made even more acute by the social distancing measures in place to slow the virus’s spread.

Press Association Van Gaal said after the game that “every aspect of the match” had been “against” his team, including the referee Chris Foy. A statement from the FA on Wednesday said it was alleged that Van Gaal’s words “allege and/or imply bias on the part of the match referee and/or bring the game into disrepute”. The Dutchman has until 6pm on Monday to respond to the charge. Having seen the Barclays Premier League giants held by their Sky Bet League Two hosts in the initial encounter between them on January 23, Van Gaal said: ”Every aspect of the match is against us – the pitch, the referee, everything that you can think about is against you.” He later repeated ”every aspect of a match is against us”, adding: ”You have seen the referee. It’s always the same. “Everywhere I have coached these games – and I have coached them also with other clubs – it’s always the same.” United won the replay 3-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has been charged by the Football Association over comments he made following his side’s FA Cup fourth-round goalless draw at Cambridge last month.
