Monaco resident Nicolas Colsaerts, a Belgian pro golfer and Ryder Cup player, has married Rachel Smith, an Australian Entrepreneur.
The ceremony took place at the town hall in Monaco on the morning of December 14.
They newlyweds were joined on the Rock by a small group of family and friends who afterwards headed to the Hotel de Paris for a celebratory lunch at the Michelin-starred The Grill, recently named by CNN as one of the world's "49 most stunning rooftop bars and restaurants".
The 35-year-old, who closed the 2017 season at the AfrAsia Mauritius Open, was the first Belgian to represent Team Europe at the Ryder Cup when he played in 2012.
The Government announced that there will be further work carried out on the hot water supply at the Jardins d’Appoline complex, from Tuesday, December 12, at 10 pm until Wednesday at 5 am, and again from Wednesday night until Thursday morning, at the same times.
Cold water will be accessible as usual but hot water will not be available during these periods, and the hot water taps should not be used.
Residents have also been warned to run the hot water for a minute after the service has resumed to get rid of discolouration, although it is possible that some discolouration will last longer.
Most importantly, when the hot water is back in service it will be at a higher temperature initially, at about 55 degrees. Users are advised to open the hot water supply slowly at first, in order to avoid the danger of burns. All this necessary information and precautions should be passed on to children in the household.
The Government service responsible for the repairs has apologised for the inconvenience.
Monaco’s Criminal Court has been told that a 33-year-old Israeli living in Russia kept a wallet containing 12,000 euros he had found in the Fairmont Monte Carlo.
The resident, a father of three, committed the offence last August and was quickly apprehended by the police using video surveillance. When arrested, the defendant said that the wallet had contained 7,500 euros, but added that he was prepared to make up the difference in the two amounts.
He also told the police that he believed the wallet had fallen from his wife’s handbag, although video cameras told a different story. He was alone when he picked up the wallet.
Prosecuting counsel said that the accused earned 15,000 euros a month but had taken advantage of the opportunity to steal 12,000 euros. Prosecutor Cyrielle Colle called for a warning from the court and a fine corresponding to his monthly income to give him cause for reflection.
Defence counsel said that the defendant - absent from the hearing - was an honest businessman who suffered from a moment of weakness.
The court decided on a suspended prison sentence of 15 days.

Pierre-André Chiappori has been elected to the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences in the Political Economy, Statistics and Finance section, to fill a place left vacant by the death of the French academic Pierre Bauchet.
Two hundred years after the famous sculptor François-Joseph Bosio, born like him in Monaco, Pierre-André Chiappori joins the prestigious Institut de France.
After graduating from high school at the Lycée Albert 1er, he joined the Ecole Normale Supérieure in 1974, was awarded a mathematics degree in 1977, and then received a doctorate in economics from the University of Paris in 1981.
After a brilliant career in France - CNRS, EHESS, Ecole polytechnique - he moved to the United States in 1997, first to the University of Chicago, then to Columbia University where he held the E Rowan and Barbara Steinschneider professorship.
He regularly visits Monaco where he chairs the scientific committee of IMSEE and the Advisory Board of the International University of Monaco and also sits on the board of directors of Monaco Asset Management. Pierre-André Chiappori is also a board member of major international corporations.
The Academy of Moral and Political Sciences, founded in 1795 and restored in 1832, is one of the five academies to come under the umbrella of the Institut de France. It is also the oldest French institution devoted entirely to law and the human sciences.
