News Quiz of the Week: How much can you remember?

From a royal funeral to an incredible week of outrage in the world of football, it's been a busy week in the news.

The nation mourned the death of the Duke of Edinburgh as he was laid to rest on Saturday, with iconic pictures showing the Queen sitting alone at his funeral as she was joined by just 29 fellow mourners. 

In sport, the headlines were dominated by the revelations that six major Premier League had agreed to join a breakaway European Super League, sparking a monumental backlash from fans, former players and the government, which led to them all withdrawing.

The gradual easing of coronavirus restrictions continues as people enjoyed a return to some aspects of normal life, though the discovery of a variant from India sparked concerns and prompted the cancellation of a trade trip to the country by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
