Joggers ruled the streets early on, before it was the elderly and then children’s turn – all under orders to stay two meters apart under continued social distancing guidelines.”We can breathe,” exulted one elderly resident of Madrid, Maria Jesus, enjoying a walk in the city center.”At home, all you can do is open a window, and you open them every day, but it is not the same as being outdoors.”One of the worst-hit nations, Spain’s death toll climbed by 164 in the previous 24 hours to 25,264, while cases reached 217,466, according to latest health ministry data on Sunday. But the declining pace of deaths and infections has led Spain to start unwinding its stay-at-home order, with children allowed out under supervision from last weekend, and adults given permission to exercise outdoors from Saturday.Wife hidden in car boot Walks and sports are allowed from 6-10 a.m. and 8-11 p.m., while children have the afternoons, and the elderly are given late morning and early evening windows.”This is a great relief to me to get out and run again,” said musician Jordi Jornet, 45, who went jogging along the shore in Gava on Sunday after a run in the mountains the previous evening.Not all were following the rules though: in Logroño, northwestern Spain, police stopped a car driven by a man whose wife was hiding under a blanket in the boot, according to the Interior Ministry. He had said he was taking tools to an allotment.To prevent overcrowding, Barcelona’s city council barred entry to its urban beaches, so thousands converged instead on the beachfront boardwalk.In the capital Madrid, where parks and other large public spaces remain closed, runners and walkers shared narrow pavements and walkways.Government spokeswoman Maria Jesus Montero described the population’s behavior as “exemplary”.But newspaper ABC said Madrid police broke up 29 groups of teenagers drinking on Saturday night, and Cadena Ser radio cited police sources as saying a record number of arrests were made for breaking confinement rules on Sunday.Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The relaxation of exercise restrictions is one of the first steps in a four-phase plan to reopen Spain by the end of June.From Monday, businesses that operate by appointment, such as hairdressers and beauty salons, will resume limited services.In the next stage, outdoor areas of bars and restaurants can open at 50% occupancy, while groups of up to 10 people will be allowed in public places and in homes. Topics : Spaniards reveled in a second day of freedom on Sunday, heading outside in time-slots for age groups on the first weekend adults were allowed out since one of the world’s strictest coronavirus lockdowns was imposed in mid-March.Though Spain’s appalling COVID-19 outbreak has shrouded the nation in mourning for more than 25,000 dead, there was much-needed relief on a sunny spring day as people at last headed back to the streets, hills and sea.Surfer Sigrid Cervera, 44, yelled for joy as she jumped into the waves with her board in Gava, a town on the Mediterranean coast outside Barcelona. “I have not been able to go surfing for ages so I am very excited,” she said.

Former women’s champion Paige returned to the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on Monday Night RAW last week in style and she took the momentum forward this week as well.Last week three women led by the the returning Briton attacked Bayley, Mickie James, Alicia Fox and Sasha Banks to interrupt their Fatal-4-Way match for the women’s title and then went on to hammer the current RAW women’s champion Alexa Bliss backstage to make a bold statement.This week, Paige and her crew from NXT consisting of Mandy Rose and Sonya Devill were supposed to face Bayley, James and Banks in a three-women tag-team match. But the trio, now called the ‘Absolution’, had something else in their minds. They continued the chaos by injuring Bayley and Mickie James backstage and then went on to attack Banks in the middle of the ring after surrounding her from three sides of the squared mat.They also returned to do the same after Asuka beat Dana Brooke but surprisingly allowed her to escape.Does that ring a bell?Yes! This is exactly how ‘The Shield’ started.Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins would surround the ring and then prowl onto their prey and deliver a hammering.Paige’s return in this avatar was something that no one was expecting and it will be interesting to see how the trio go about in the business.Another group of NXT women also invaded SmackDown last week. Ruby Riot, Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan laid out Naomi and Becky Lynch in the backstage area and then went onto attack Charlotte Flair and Natalya during their rematch, causing it to end in a no-contest.advertisementThere are rumours suggesting that Paige will lead a ‘cross-band’ women’s revolution and if the signs in the three nights are anything to go by, it will be an exciting time for women’s wrestling in the upcoming months. This is something that the WWE fans will be seeing for the first time in a long time to come and knowing how well they embraced ‘The Shield’, it could be a great way to carry forward the upsurge in women’s wrestling with a strong and capable performer in Paige.
