1. What did Trump know, and when did he know it? The Orange One has fired FBI director James Comey. Speculation is rampant that the reasoning is because of what Comey might reveal about Trump's links to Russia.

2. Why would MPs not vote for a bill that would make companies reveal their gender pay gap? That's a good question.

3. What's next for South Korea? The Asia nation has elected Moon Jae-in, the son of North Korean refugees, as its next president. He'll replace Park Geun-hye, the country's first female leader who was removed from office and later jailed amid a corruption scandal. Also, Moon has said he favours dialogue with neighbouring North Korea, rather than threats and a military buildup.

4. Is it ever ok to use a haka in advertising? German insurance company ARAG is under fire for using a haka in a TV advert.

5. How could a member of FIFA's council not know who the reigning Women's World Cup champion is? A viral video shows new FIFA Council member Mahfuza Kiron unable to name who won the 2015 Women's World Cup. In the video, Kiron says the winner was North Korea or Japan. It was actually the United States.
