1. Man charged over Sydney sexual assault of a seven-year-old girl.
A man has been charged over the sexual assault of a seven-year-old girl at a dance studio in Sydney’s south.
The 54-year-old man was arrested by detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad on Sunday afternoon, after being deemed fit by doctors to leave hospital where he had been under guard.
It’s alleged he physically and sexually assaulted the girl in the toilet of a dance studio in Kogarah earlier this month.
He has been charged with 11 offences, including aggravated kidnapping, sexual intercourse with a child under 10, choking a person, using a child to make child abuse material, and two counts of aggravated act of indecency being filmed.
Some of the 11 charges relate to the assault of two men who confronted the man.
Police said he was taken to hospital after the alleged November 15 sexual assault and stayed there in Corrective Services custody while being treated until doctors deemed him fit.
He was taken to Maroubra Police Station on Sunday and was charged.
The man is due to appear by video link at Waverley Local Court on Monday.
2. I could still challenge Serena: McEnroe.

He turns 60 in February but John McEnroe still believes he could challenge women’s great Serena Williams on a tennis court.
Not that he wants to.
Before he was US president, Donald Trump once famously offered McEnroe $US1 million to play either Serena or Venus Williams in a match to rival the 1973 battle-of-the-sexes showdown when Billie-Jean King beat Bobby Riggs.
