Spain's Rafael Nadal celebrates with the French Open trophy after his final match against Austria's Dominic Thiem in Paris, France, June 9. The 33-year-old Nadal became the first player to win the same Grand Slam title 12 times, going past Margaret Court's 11 Australian Opens, and now sits two major titles behind his great foe and men s Grand Slam title record holder, 37-year-old Roger Federer. The first set had been one for the ages, the second ran it close, but after three hours and one minute all that mattered was that Nadal was once again in familiar pose, flat on his back on the clay, a 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-1 winner to clinch his 18th Grand Slam triumph in total.

U.S. President Donald Trump holds up what he described as proof of a deal with Mexico on immigration and trade as he speaks to the news media prior to departing for travel to Iowa from the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, June 11. The U.S.-Mexico migration agreement reached last week includes a regional asylum plan and Mexico's commitment to examine and potentially change its laws, according to a copy held up to journalists by Trump. The deal lays out "a regional approach to burden-sharing in relation to the processing of refugee status claims to migrants," the document said. A Reuters photograph of the folded document, taken as Trump held it up, allowed reporters to read parts of it. REUTERS/Leah Millis
