Heavy metal icons Black Sabbath triumphed at this year's Classic Rock awards in London on Thursday (November 14), picking up three prizes including the living legend award. The band also won album of the year for 13 and event of the year, after 13 topped album charts across the world and scored them their biggest US hit. Jean-Claude Van Damme has had to perform countless daring stunts, but in a stunt for Volvo, he carries out one of his most spectacular yet. Standing between two moving trucks with a foot on each side mirror, Van Damme performs one of his world-famous splits as the two trucks drive in reverse. The online video has already gone viral after its posting on YouTube on Wednesday (November 13), with more than 9 million views. Oscar winner Jean Dujardin and his wife of four years, Alexandra Lamy, have reportedly split. The couple met in 1999 on a French TV series. Dujardin won a best actor Oscar in 2012 for silent film "The Artist," becoming the first Frenchman to win the coveted accolade. Sony's newest gaming console PlayStation 4 (PS4) hit stores on Friday (November 15). Sony said that it has received more than 1 million advance orders for the PS4. Its predecessor, the PlayStation 3, has racked up lifetime sales of about 80 million consoles.
