It's been speculated for months, rumored for weeks, and now official for hours: The Special One is returning to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea announced Monday the Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho inked a four-year contract to return to London, piloting the club he left in 2007 after a highly successful run. Despite seeming to cause at least some frustration everyone he goes, Mourinho's return must be cause for celebration at the Bridge: not only is he tied with two others for the most European Cup/Champions League titles with different teams (2, with Porto and Inter Milan), but he was the youngest manager to reach 100 Champions League matches, and also piloted Chelsea en route to his longest unbeaten home run by a football/soccer manager, spanning nine years, four clubs, and four countries without defeat on home turf.

Matt Smith announced he's stepping down as Dr. Who at the end of the year, and already oddsmakers are out, claiming action on everyone from Rupert Grint to Idris Elba to Dame Helen Mirren. Depending who takes over as Time Lord, Smith could find himself unseated in the record books. He was the youngest person to ever play the role - at age 26 - and Grint, currently 24, would surpass him if he took over.

The minds behind Minecraft are at it again. The wildly successful game - which holds no fewer than a dozen world records, including best-selling indie video game - has seen its creators Mojang release its latest creation, "Scrolls," into beta testing. The game puts two players battling against each other, using effects from a virtual deck of playing cards.

Lastly, history was made in the Czech Republic over the weekend, as government representatives announced that Alexandra Kinova gave birth to quintuplets; it's the first time ever someone in the nation has done so. Her babies were born without complication, although delivering five children is never a walk in the park. This was especially so for the two cases of heaviest quintuplet births on record, each at 11.35 kg (25 lbs) combined for mothers Liu Saulian (China, 1953) and Mrs Kamalammal (India, 1956).
