Carry on post-Olympic momentum of peace: South Korea's message to North

IN THE WORLD PAPERS - Wednesday, March 7: "A lesson served to the nouveau riche": The Spanish press are less than gracious after Real Madrid defeat PSG in the Champions League! We also look at reactions to North Korea considering denuclearization. What are its real motives? The British papers continue to speculate over the poisoning of a Russian spy and his daughter. Finally, a message in a bottle dating back to 1886 is deemed uninteresting, so internet users make up their own message!

For more on our stories, check out the links below:

Why is Kim Jong-un suddenly interested in denuclearization? The Washington Post has its own cynical theories.

Who's behind the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the UK? The press points the finger at Vladimir Putin, who vowed that spies would "kick the bucket".

Marca, a Spanish sports paper, jeers PSG after its loss to Real Madrid, saying the Parisians were "served a lesson".

Finally, a message in a bottle dating back to 1886 washes up on an Australian shore. But internet users hilariously come up with their own message after the bottle's note is deemed too boring!
