• Board hope to get new manager in before Saturday’s game with Crystal Palace

Swansea City are looking for their third manager in less than 12 months after Paul Clement was sacked. The club’s American owners decided to part company with Clement after losing faith in his ability to engineer a turnaround following a dismal run of 10 defeats in 13 Premier League matches that left Swansea anchored to the bottom of the table and four points adrift of safety.

It is understood that Swansea have a replacement for Clement lined up and hope to have him in place before the critical home match against Crystal Palace on Saturday, with an announcement anticipated within the next 24 hours. Clement’s successor is expected to have Premier League experience, although there is no suggestion at this stage that Tony Pulis is in the frame.

France v Italy: Six Nations – live!

71 mins: Machenaud kicks another penalty, and it will be his last touch, as France make a string of replacements.

70 mins: France push forward again, hint at a try again, and mess it up horribly again. The referee was playing an advantage, so there’s another penalty here, but some of the home side’s decision-making and execution in crucial situations has been comical.

Weatherwatch: wildlife calls change volume as hurricanes pass

Recent research has recorded how creatures modified their calls in the wake of hurricanes Irma and Maria – with some surprising results

It’s not just humans that hunker down when a hurricane arrives; insects, birds and shrimps do too. But for fish a hurricane is a chance for a party and an opportunity to make a lot of noise, as new underwater recordings show. Back in March 2017 Ben Gottesman from Purdue University in Indiana, USA, and his colleagues placed sound recording devices in coastal forests and amongst coral reefs on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico’s southwest coast, to monitor how animal vocalisations change over time. By chance Hurricanes Irma and Maria swept through in September 2017.

The recordings revealed how birds and insects became much quieter for up to three weeks following each storm. The clicks of the normally noisy snapping shrimp went quiet for a good few days. By contrast the fish turned up the volume. Gottesman and his colleagues, who presented their findings at the 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Portland last week speculate that the increased murkiness of the water following the hurricanes may have sent shrimps scuttling back to their burrows to clean them out, whilst fish may have been taking advantage of the added gloom to sing for a mate, safe in the knowledge that predators would have a harder time spotting them.
