AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – Mexico, it hasn't been made official but Enrique Pena Nieto appears to be the new president and has already delivered his victory speech. In the speech he barely touched on the war against drugs in his country and so many in the U.S. are concerned. They are worried that he may take it easy on Mexican drug cartels.

Spain – The fiesta continues here as soccer fans celebrate their team's victory in the Euro 2012 Soccer Championships. Spain beat Italy four to zero on Sunday. They are the first team ever to bookend a world cup championship with 2-european championships.

United Kingdom – Wimbledon's beloved Hawk “Rufus” makes a safe return after being stolen. The hawk is used to patrol the skies watching for pigeons during the tennis tournament. Someone swiped him last week but we still don't know who did it.

Australia – They're calling a woman here ‘the smiling thief’. The woman walked into a gas station looking sweet but then threatened the cashier with a knife to turn over all the stores cash. It totally caught the employee off guard. She did make off with money and hasn't been found yet.
