Dr Richard Freeman accepted a free bike worth several thousands of pounds as a “gift” from Shane Sutton that was “cleared off” the British Cycling budget, a medical tribunal heard.

Freeman had previously told the tribunal that he was “terrified” of the former British Cycling head coach – and also said in his witness statement that Sutton had wanted him to sign off £6,000 of cosmetic dental treatment while the two men worked together.

However under cross-examination by Simon Jackson QC, counsel for the General Medical Council, Freeman stated that he had “regrettably” accepted a sponsor’s bike from Sutton, believed to be a Pinarello Prince worth several thousands of pounds, which he subsequently gave to his wife.

There’s one aspect of my boyfriend’s “gift” that I really can’t take.

How to Do It is Slate’s sex advice column. Have a question? Send it to Stoya and Rich here. It’s anonymous!

Dear How to Do It,

I’ve been with my guy for two years. While we have fantastic sex, one thing I love is missing: anal. I’ve enjoyed anal sex in the past and want it with him, but he has an extraordinarily long, fat penis. It’s something to behold. And Tab A just won’t fit into Slot B. To get used to his size, I’ve tried graduated training plugs but the largest is still smaller than his “plug.” It’s worth noting that his length is not preventing penetration—his girth is.

So, I’m literally asking “how to do it,” anally. Thanks for your, um, input.

Inflatable butt plugs. I’ve seen them starting

Jimmy Kimmel Surprises Dearborn Woman With Birthday Gift

DEARBORN, MI — Jimmy Kimmel, a host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on ABC, surprised one of his biggest fans with a birthday gift Sunday.

Lillie Washington, a resident at Beaumont Commons, Dearborn, turned 95 years old Sunday and was stunned when she received a signed T-shirt, hat and card as a gift from Kimmel in the mail.

“I watch him every night, religiously,” Washington said in a video of her opening up a letter from Kimmel.

Washington was profiled in the Dearborn Press and Guide, in which she said her favorite TV show is “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” While Kimmel vacationed over the summer, Washington complained that his guest hosts were not as funny.

To everyone’s surprise, Kimmel read the story. Kimmel’s assistant then emailed the senior living community to inquire about the best way to send a package to such an enthusiastic fan.

Wedding guest calls thank you gift ’ghetto’

Your wedding is meant to be the most amazing day of your life. Some women have been daydreaming and planning their special day since they were little girls.

But in reality those dreams of planning the perfect wedding can quickly turn into a nightmare.

Yes, it can be exciting and fun but as most brides-to-be will tell you, it can be equally as stressful.

With a checklist longer than the trail of your wedding dress and the cost that of an overseas holiday, the last thing you need is to have that one guest who you only invited to keep the peace, complain about everything from the food to the thank you gift.

Growing up we were oh too happy to get a little bag of candy coated almonds in a pretty little bag or a slice of the wedding cake wrapped in cellophane as
