The remaining population consists of Africa's largest communities of European (white), Asian (Indian), and multiracial (coloured) ancestry.

Breaking news Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Breaking news, interchangeably termed latebreaking news and also known as a special report or special coverage or news bulletin, is a current issue that broadcasters feel warrants the interruption of scheduled programming and/or current news in order to report its details.

Its use is also assigned to the most significant story of the moment or a story that is being covered live.

It could be a story that is simply of wide interest to viewers and has little impact otherwise.

Many times, breaking news is used after the news organization has already reported on the story.

When a story has not been reported on previously, the graphic and phrase "Just In" is sometimes used instead.

Sport Confidence: 69% Arrow up

Sport (UK) or sports (US) are all usually forms of competitive physical activity or games which, through casual or organized participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing enjoyment to participants, and in some cases, entertainment for spectators.

Usually the contest or game is between two sides, each attempting to exceed the other.

Some sports allow a tie game; others provide tie-breaking methods, to ensure one winner and one loser.

A number of such two-sided contests may be arranged in a tournament producing a champion.

Many sports leagues make an annual champion by arranging games in a regular sports season, followed in some cases by playoffs.

Hundreds of sports exist, from those between single contestants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals.

In certain sports such as racing, many contestants may compete, each against each other, with one winner.
