In the statement about the cancellations, Costello wrote: 

The spirit has been more than willing but I have to now accept that it is going to take longer than I would have wished for me to recover my full strength. Therefore, I must reluctantly cancel all the remaining engagements of this tour.

Costello announced in the statement that he has a new album that will be released in October. He also offered this advice to his fans.

Take very good care of your loved ones but Gentlemen, do talk to your friends -- you’ll find that you are not alone -- seek your doctor’s advice if you are in doubt or when it is timely and act as swiftly as you may in these matters. It may save your live. Believe me, it is better than playing roulette.

Ronda Rousey becomes first woman inductee in UFC Hall of Fame

Ronda Rousey, who dominated the women’s mixed martial arts division with a string of convincing victories over a three-year period, became the first woman inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame on Thursday, ESPN reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Rousey, 31, was the UFC’s first women’s champion. As the company’s bantamweight champion, she held the title from 2012 to 2015 and defended the belt six times. She won her first 12 mixed martial arts matches -- all by submission -- and appeared unbeatable until she was stunned in November 2015 by Holly Holm in a second-round loss. A comeback match against Amanda Nunes in December 2016 ended in a 48-second loss in the first round. Rousey has not competed in mixed martial arts since and signed with the WWE in January, ESPN reported.

“I am not the first person who had the ability to do this, but I am here because I am the first person you took the time to watch, that you put the energy into supporting," Rousey said during her induction speech in Las Vegas at the Pearl Theatre. “Because of you, I am the first woman standing up here accepting this incredible honor. May I be the first of many."

Rousey won a bronze medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, becoming the first American woman to win a medal in judo. Rousey debuted in the UFC in 2013, defeating Liz Carmouche in the UFC’s first women’s fight.

"In my almost 18 years as UFC president, I've learned many valuable lessons," UFC president Dana White said as he presented Rousey. "And the one that comes to mind tonight is never say never, especially when you're talking to UFC. In my defense, when I famously said women would never fight in the UFC, I had never met Ronda Rousey. I had never met the woman who would change everything. She started by changing my mind and she ended up changing the world."

“So this email from my agent (a political liberal) today...,” Woods tweeted. 

The tweet included a screenshot of an email that appears to be from Kaplan with the subject “Well...”

“It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic,” Kaplan said in the email. “I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I can go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”

Woods tweeted his response to Kaplan, although it is not clear if he also replied directly to the email.

“My response: ‘Dear Ken, I don’t actually. I was thinking if you’re feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one’s right to think as an individual. Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf. Be well.’”

Woods has been vocal about his conservative politics. In February, he said he was blacklisted from Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the Golden Globes, when former HFPA president Philip Berk asked him if he would vote for Hillary Clinton if she ran for president. 

“During a press junket with HFPA, (Berk) asked if I would support Hillary Clinton if she ever ran for president,” Woods said in a tweet. “Never nominated again.”
