hello. good morning. this is breakfast, with rogerjohnson and rachel burden. bolt bows out with bronze. the greatest sprinter of all time fails to secure a 20th global gold as he prepares to exit the world stage for the last time. it's just one of those things. you know what i mean? i can't say much. i just didn't execute when it matters. so, here at the london stadium, it was bronze for bolt, gold for gatlin. the controversial american stunned the crowd by taking the title. and he paid his own tribute to his great rival, bolt. good morning. it's sunday the 6th of august. ministers launch a review into the cost of energy, but consumer groups say it's "cold comfort" for households that are already paying too much. "stop wrapping children in cotton wool." the new chief inspector of schools says overzealous health and safety rules are holding pupils back.
and how to have a vacation like vladimir putin. we will talk about the russian president as he goes on his summer holidays. and jay has the weather. good morning. good morning. a refreshing start to sunday. a lot of bright weather around. in the south—east, you get the sunshine. north and west, showers. the man said to be the world's greatest ever sprinter, usain bolt, has failed to win his last individual ioo—metre race at the world athletics championships in london. bolt is retiring after a career which saw him win 11 world titles and eight olympic gold medals. he finished third, behind americans, justin gatlin and christian coleman. gatlin has twice served doping bans. our sports editor, dan roan, watched the action unfold. with the night sky crackling with excitement, the fireworks gave a sense of what was to come. usain bolt! lapping up the adulation for one
last time in an individual final, bolt knew this buildup hadn't been perfect, beaten in the semi—final by an american, christian coleman. his starts have also been shaky. bolt gets a pretty good start. so does coleman. coleman leading it. chasing hard. here he comes. and gatlin wins it! with coleman second, bolt was pushed into bronze, the disbelief sweeping round the stadium, the crowd making it more than clear what they thought of the winner. booing. gatlin had shocked the world, but he quickly moved from arrogance to humility. and as the american basked in unpopular glory, usain bolt gave an interview we're not used to seeing. it's just one of those things, you know what i mean? i can't say much. i just didn't execute when it matters. it wasn't meant to be this way.
the crowd her expected usain bolt to win his final ioo—metre race, not come third, and certainly not get beaten by a two times drug cheat injustin gatlin, who crashes the farewell party. it's the last thing track and field would have wanted. mistakes can happen. but you can come back hard and work hard for them and be accepted back. the crowd had experienced history, just not the history they expected. but bolt still bows out having transcended his sport. dan roan, bbc news, at the london stadium. we have all the sport and comments oi'i we have all the sport and comments on that later. an independent review into the cost of energy is being launched by the governmentjust days after british gas raised standard electricity prices by i2.5%. the business secretary, greg clark, says the report will examine how prices can be kept as low as possible, while ensuring the uk still meets its climate change targets. let's speak to our political correspondent, leila nathoo. we know that the government before
the general election promised there might bea the general election promised there might be a cap on energy prices. this particular study is slightly different, isn't it? yes. this independent review was also promised in the manifesto. it was planned for some time. by the wrist no sign of that cap on bills for customers on standard variable tariffs. —— but there is no sign. theresa may promised a before the election. ofgem is also considering ways to protect consumers, looking to extend a cap already existing on prepaid meters. but this independent review is going to look at how to reduce costs across the system, so, all stages of the supply chain, and looking to see how those might be able to be passed on to consumers as well as making sure the uk meets climate change targets. this review has been welcomed, but consumer
groups are saying it does not do anything to address prices now we expect that to happen by the end of october. thank you very much. more details on that later. and later on, we'll be speaking to will hodson, co—founder of "the big deal," a consumer group that advise people how to save money on their energy bills. that is later. italian police have arrested a polish man accused of kidnapping and drugging a british model as she arrived for a photo—shoot. the 20—year—old woman was attacked by two men and held captive for six days. it's alleged they threatened to hold an on line auction for her unless a ransom was paid. 30—year—old, lukasz pawel herba, who lives in britain, has been arrested on suspicion of kidnap and extortion. schools must stop trying "to wrap children in cotton wool" because it leaves them ill—prepared for the challenges of later life. that's the view of the chief inspector of schools. ofsted's amanda spielman says over the top health and safety rules stop children developing resilience and wants new guidance for schools in england. andy moore reports. it's clear the chief inspector
of schools is no fan of children in high—vis jackets. she says they look like troops of mini construction workers minus the hard hats. pupils, she claims, are being shortchanged by teachers trying to insulate them from every bump, germ, or bruise. take conkers for example. she says every minute spent trying to ban it takes away from the multitude of real dangers children face. she says this is her message. she wants children to be able to take full advantage of the freedom of childhood to explore the world around them. and so, to that end, the 1,800 school inspectors in england will be taking part in sessions next month called
"when is safe, what really matters?" the aim is to get away from the tickbox culture of the past. there is also a warning today that children are spending too much of their free time on line. it comes from the children's commissioner in england saying youngsters are bingeing on social media in the same way they like to tuck into junk food. they say they want parents to regulate internet usage just like they would stop them eating cheeseburgers and chips for every meal. belgian officials have admitted they knew that eggs from dutch farms might be contaminated with an insecticide a month before the issue became public. belgium's food safety agency said it had kept quiet because of an ongoing fraud investigation. shops in belgium, the netherlands and germany, have removed
the eggs from sale. tough new sanctions will be imposed on north korea following the country's recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests. the un voted unanimously for the resolution to ban some north korean exports, like iron, coal and lead, and to limit investments in the country. pyongyang has been under un sanctions for almost a decade, but refuses to end its nuclear programmes. our new york correspondent, nick bryant, reports. this was a show of ambition and menace, north korea last month testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appeared capable of reaching the american mainland, west coast cities such as los angeles, and even beyond. it's this kind of brinkmanship that's intensified diplomacy at the united nations security council, and led to a deal between the united states and china, north korea's ally, to impose tough new sanctions. this is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation. these sanctions will cut deep, and in doing so, will give the north korean leadership a taste of the depravation they have chosen to inflict on the
north korean people. most of north korea's export trade goes across this border, into china, and pyongyang could be deprived of roughly a third of its export income, the sanctions hitting its trade in coal, iron, and seafood. but they don't limit oil deliveries, a move that would have a crippling effect on the economy, and potentially a collapsing effect on the pyongyang regime. this week, the pentagon conducted its own test of an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile, proof, it said, that america is ready and able to deter, detect and defend against attacks. so far, sanctions have failed, and most intelligence analysts here believe that north korea won't come to the negotiating table until it has proven beyond any doubt that it not only has a missile that could reach the us mainland, but a missile that could be armed with a nuclear warhead. nick bryant, bbc news, at the united nations. meanwhile, the us secretary of state, rex tillerson,
will meet his korean, russian, and chinese counterparts at the summit of the association of southeast asian nations in manila today. north korea's nuclear programme is expected to be a main topic. 0ur south asia correspondent, jonathan head, is in bangkok for us this morning. thank you for talking to us. rex tillerson will be there. there will bea tillerson will be there. there will be a north korean diplomat there. will rex tillerson have a conversation with him?|j will rex tillerson have a conversation with him? i doubted very much. it not unprecedented. backin very much. it not unprecedented. back in 2002, there was the famous axis of evil speech. we found out later with all the translation and protocol involved, all they were saying was hello and how are you?
they will be avoiding that. this is the only arena in which the north korean diplomats is near the american one. they are looking for solid condemnation of north korea. they would even like north korea kicked out of the forum. that might happen this year. this is important for the americans and the donald trump administration. up until now, asia does not really know what donald trump stands for. rex tillerson has a chance to show engaged diplomacy, bringing people on board, diplomacy, something we have not seen from the donald trump administration in other issues. that is interesting. we will watch in interest in the hours ahead. thank you. jonathan head in bangkok. president trump is beginning his 17—day golfing holiday, but his russian counterpart valdimir putin, had more energetic pursuits in mind, for his summer break. the president made a three—day trip to the siberian wilderness, and he's been showing
off his fishing, snorkelling and quad biking skills. the top of everyone's holiday list! 0ur moscow correspondent, sarah rainsford, reports. it's russia, it's summer, so it's time for vladimir putin's photo—shoot. and this year, the action—man president went fishing in siberia. the video footage ran for a full ten minutes on state television. the highlight was the pike—chase. this year, mr putin went underwater with a spear gun. the kremlin says he was hunting his prey for two hours. "i had to shoot twice," he admits, finally surfacing with his catch. after notching up 17 years in power, russia's leader is a dab hand at such stunts. he once took to the skies as a human crane. he is regularly snapped on his skates. commentator: vladimir putin! and horseriding is another action—man favourite for the judo black belt. this year, too, it was all about vladimir putin, the macho man, even at 64.
the strong leader, ready as ever to stand up to the west. and, never shy of revealing a bit of flesh, mr putin took a moment to flex his muscles in the siberian sunshine. "now that's good fishing," he tells his entourage. sarah rainsford, bbc news, moscow. he is in good shape. you will be getting similar photos in your holiday, won't you? lots of you have got in touch this morning about the events last night at london stadium. we will talk about that soon. this person says in this occasion, justin gatlin got victory fair and square. he was booed and should be banned
for life said this person. third in the world and usain bolt is still the world and usain bolt is still the best of all time. this person says he lost his title to a drugs cheat. it would have been a good story if the baton was passed onto him. it's eight years since usain bolt set his jaw—dropping 100—metre world record in berlin. he did it in 9.58 seconds, and cemented his reputation as one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen. but last night, bolt was denied a golden goodbye to his incredible career. among those watching the drama unfold was a former commonwealth champion, iwan thomas, who joins us now from the london stadium. you were on duty last night and you interviewed bolt after the race, how was that, what did he say and how was that, what did he say and how was he feeling? he was pretty upbeat and really humble and at one stage he apologised to the crowd saying i'm sorry i didn't perform and i said stop, you don't need to apologise for what you have done for
the sport, you have put it back on the sport, you have put it back on the map, he has been the saviour of athletics and the reaction he got, i almost felt sorry for gatlin, it was all about bolt, he didn't win but he's the people's champion, the response he gets all over the world and it would have been lovely to have the fairytale ending but he wasn't in the best shape and it had to be bronze. many of us who had seen him in the heats and the semifinals, people were already saying we're not sure he's there but you hope he might have the final push. in the end has his heart not beenin push. in the end has his heart not been in it over the last year preparing for the championships? are not sure his heart hasn't been in it but what has opened a lot of people's eyes, when he breaks down and gets injuries at the top level with the speed he runs at and the punishment he puts his body through the struggles and it hasn't been the smoothest run but it never normally
is for bolt but normally we see him step upa is for bolt but normally we see him step up a level when it comes to major championships but after the heats and the semis he didn't look himself and i was worried and nervous he wouldn't win and u nfortu nately nervous he wouldn't win and unfortunately he didn't but in my eyes he will always be a winner. he has really saved this sport and he isa has really saved this sport and he is a showman, no one can replace what he has done or him, he's been remarkable to watch. looking back at the race last night, we will come to gatlin in a moment but christian coleman, what a talent he's going to be? yeah, that's what championships are about, it's about the likes of bolt but it's also about the next generation and for people like coleman to hold his nerve and perform at a major championships, that's what it's all about and u nfortu nately bowled that's what it's all about and unfortunately bowled will go and we need the next superstar so for athletes that come to a world championships and step up their game and produce fantastic performances, fair play. he had an unbelievable start and he very nearly did win it but gatlin powered through in the
end. lots of texts and tweets, social media was alight last night in response to this. broadly speaking most people think that gatlin is a cheat, a two—time cheat and you should never have been given the chance to run again and that's why we saw the reaction last night. can we set out a case for the defence? he is a 35—year—old man, astonishing to see him run these speeds at this age. he ran well but i have to say being inside the stadium, it's a knowledgeable crowd and the blues he gets before he races, i've never seen it anywhere else —— boos. people know their sport. gatlin is running with the rolls, personally i think he should be banned for life, he has been banned twice, but he has served his time and he is coming and running well. some would argue yes, but he has cheated before and he's had the influence of those drugs and it is still in his system, training at the
high—level because he's a cheat and he should be thrown out of the sport. the iaaf are doing their ha rd est to sport. the iaaf are doing their hardest to clean up the sport and we have had retrospective medal ceremonies tonight going as far back as 2009 with those failing tests being stripped of their medals. personally i don't think gatlin should be allowed to run, he is a clear cheat, this isn't like alan baxter who lost a medal as a skier through taking the wrong nasal spray, he knowingly cheated. it is difficult but he is running under the rules. the first offence was a tiny amount of amphetamine in his drugs for attention deficit disorder so that's why they were relatively lenient on the ban there, the second one he still says was a setup but all the evidence would suggest otherwise. is that what you're saying? it's difficult. as an athlete you have to be responsible for what you put in your body, be it supplements or the food you eat, you know what you're eating and i think
if someone has bent the rolls clearly then i personally think the ban should be longer or lifetime because what message are we sending out to future generations? every night and day the stadium is packed with kids who want to love athletics for the right reasons and usain bolt is the right reason. he is and he will always be a legend. great to hear from you, thanks will always be a legend. great to hearfrom you, thanks berry much. the sun on the london stadium and usain bolt will always be the golden boy. —— very much. the sun is shining on the london stadium. here's jay with a look at this morning's weather. good morning. a bright start for many parts but also a fresh start to the date. major towns and cities just about double figures but you don't have to go too far to get to single figures and it's cold enough for a touch of frost in rural scotland. a bright start, yes, for most scotland. a bright start, yes, for m ost pla ces scotland. a bright start, yes, for most places but maybe not so in northern ireland because you have this weather system moving in and thatis this weather system moving in and that is bringing cloud and breeze
and rain with it. a bit wet here this morning. that rain is on the move and pushing ever northwards and eastwards through the afternoon. eventually things will drier and brighter and up eventually things will drier and brighterand up in eventually things will drier and brighter and up in northern ireland but still showers dotted around as it goes downhill across most of scotla nd it goes downhill across most of scotland with the rain moving eastwards but the far north—east staying dry into the afternoon. not too much rain east of the pennines but west of the pennines it will be wet, cumbria in particular and the rain will set into western wales through the afternoon. cloud in over in the south—west, maybe some rain but essentially dry here and after a lovely bright start for the south—east corner, cloud amounts will increase into the afternoon but staying fine and dry with temperatures into the low twenties. a decent day at the london stadium, increasing amounts of cloud, a bit of breeze but nothing to run toward. this evening we still have the rain shifting a bit further south through the evening, showers in scotland and northern ireland, northern england and wales and the south—west and
this line of rain will not move to too farc. north of that, sunny spells and showers. in the south—eastern corner it is dry, some brighter spells, 22 and the middle teams as you head further north. into this week am not looking great, we have this area of low pressure developing to the east of us and the isobars are coming down from the north and those weather fronts will bring rain to it so fairly u nsettled, bring rain to it so fairly unsettled, showers around, the wind is coming down from the north so a lwa ys is coming down from the north so always feeling on the poolside. thank you very much! not looking brilliant for anyone holidaying holidaying in this country at the moment. still roasting hot if you're heading to europe. smart vehicles which are connected to the internet can making life easier for drivers, allowing them to access maps, travel information and digital radio services. but there are warnings that unless manufacturers improve security, hackers could target them to access personal data or even take
control of the car. our business correspondent joe lynam reports. ca rs cars can do far more for drivers now than ever before. they can park themselves... they can even drive themselves... they can even drive themselves. but all that technology also makes them vulnerable to cyber attack, so the government says it wa nts to attack, so the government says it wants to act by forcing carmakers to do more to prevent vehicles from being hacked remotely. that includes stealing personal details such as phone numbers stored with the car. but also to prevent the car itself from being controlled remotely while you are at the wheel. may be cyber security could actually affect the safety of our cars, but it has been the case that some of the hacks that have been around can affect the safety of cars, it can affect the steering wheel to putting the brakes on so this isn't a new problem but perhaps more of a new focus on
another problem. or although it's not publishing any new legislation nor has it carried out any specific research into the scale if any of theissue, research into the scale if any of the issue, the government still wa nts ma nufa ctu rers to the issue, the government still wants manufacturers to think about the risks of a cyber attack on the private vehicles of the future. fully autonomous vehicles will be with us in the next few years and we need to make sure there's public acceptability and secondly that they are designed to be cyber robust. britain hopes to become the go to place for modern car technology, including self driving cars and electric vehicles. the advances are rapid. always staying in front of the hackers, though, will be an equal challenge. joe lynam, bbc news. and later on the programme we'll be discussing smart vehicles with technology writer 0lly mann. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. time now for a look at the newspapers. paul horrocks is here to tell us what's caught his eye.
we'll speak to paul in a minute. actually we will speak to him now. where shall we start? the sunday telegraph story about schools wrapping pupils in cotton wool. one we mentioned earlier. this is a really good talking point because there's a lot of debate about health and safety regulation and all the rest of it and what amanda spielman, who is the new chief inspector of schools is saying is that children are being wrapped in cotton wool and that it leaves them ill—prepared for the challenges of later life. what she is now saying is from september schools have to do more to distinguish between real and imagined risk and i think that's the whole point, isn't it? schools have got to... and as parents you would wa nt got to... and as parents you would want schools to safeguard and looked after vulnerable children but you can't eliminate life. you don't want
them looking like an army of construction workers on school trips. indeed. examples of school teachers popping children's balloons because they were deemed dangerous. sport cancelled because of wet grass. i'm cautious about stories like this because i know teachers will tell us this is nonsense, the high—viz jackets improve visibility of children and help us keep an eye on where they are and the rumours about conkers, i know they are banned in some schools but how? the author of this report, or this directive if you like, is the chief inspector of schools, so this isn't some wacky report. she is in charge. what she is saying is it has gone too far and lots of people are saying it is true. we've got the spectrum too far the wrong way. couple of texts, the older generation say this all the time says one younger person. my
generation were called soft because we wore long trousers in the winter. yes, from ones end of the spectrum to the another. we have gone from not enough to too many. fruitjuice will be banned as a routine drink for children in nurseries according to this sunday times story. 9% of children are obese by the time they start primary school because there is too much sugar and fruitjuice will be banned. action on sugar has warned sugary drinks including juices are one of the main contributors to obesity. amazing how much sugar there is in standard fruit juice much sugar there is in standard fruitjuice which we used to think was healthy. dogs and dog fouling is one most people understand, when you see people... most people clear up after their dogs nowadays, this is about dogs being let off their leash inland up now. i'm a dog walker. i
walked along that very beach where that beautiful photograph was taken with a bag in every pocket i've got to say. here we've got a case of this beach inland at no where dog walkers are being put under surveillance by a private security firm observing them with binoculars and following them into the sand dunes to check they don't let their dogs off the lead and if they do, the minute they do that a security firm, covert security firm, slaps them with an instant penalty and i think it's about £75. they can go to court and get it overturned, though. now conway, the capital for dogs on lead orders, with a92 people handed these orders last year. word 65 were overturned. how do you argue that? there has to be compromise. it is right in the summer when kids are on the beaches, you don't want dogs all over the place and fouling is a
menace but surely you could have designated areas for dogs off the lead but what about times of the day, between 6am and 9am or later in the evening? i think we should have the evening? i think we should have the children on leeds never mind dogs! that's another matter! spoken like a true mother! this is one that got us talking at 5am. i threw two of these away but only because i cleaned out the car. debate that has raged for years, how long do you keep the kitchen sponge. apparently you should throw it away quickly because of the number of germs. according to german scientists, a cubic centimetre of sponge tissue contains seven to eight times more bacteria than there are humans living on earth. fact of the day. i tend to throw mine away when the green bit gets a bit manky. tend to throw mine away when the green bit gets a bit mankym tend to throw mine away when the green bit gets a bit manky. if it gets a bit smelly as well then you
have to throw it out. there are trillions of bugs on it as well according to the article. thanks very much, talk to you again in an hour. everyone will look at their kitchen sponges differently now. stay with us, headlines coming up. but first, mike's on the beach finding out how to improve his handball game and it involves him hitting the sand several times over! surprise surprise! headlines on the way. hello. good morning. this is breakfast with rogerjohnson and rachel burden. coming up before 8am, we'll have the weather for you. but first, a summary of this morning's main news. the man said to be the world's greatest ever sprinter, usain bolt, has failed to win his last individual 100—metre race at the world athletics championships in london. bolt is retiring, after a career which saw him win 11 world titles and eight olympic gold medals. he finished third, behind americans, justin gatlin and christian coleman. gatlin has twice served doping bans. an independent review into the cost
of energy is being launched by the government, just days after british gas raised standard electricity prices by i2.5%. the business secretary, greg clark, says the report will examine how prices can be kept as low as possible while ensuring the uk still meets its climate change targets. italian police have arrested a polish man accused of kidnapping and drugging a british model as she arrived for a photo—shoot. the 20—year—old woman was attacked by two men and held captive for six days. it's alleged they threatened to hold an on—line auction for her unless a ransom was paid. 30—year—old, lukasz pawel herba, who lives in britain, has been arrested on suspicion of kidnap and extortion. schools must stop trying "to wrap children in cotton wool" because it leaves them ill—prepared for the challenges of later life. that's the view of the chief inspector of schools. 0fsted's amanda spielman says over the top health and safety rules stop children developing resilience and wants new guidance for schools in england. meanwhile, the children's
commissioner for england says parents need to regulate their children's social media use the same way they would with fast food. anne longfield said parents need be proactive in stopping their children from bingeing on the internet over the summer holidays. children aged five to 15 are spending 15 hours a week on the internet, according to 0fcom. we hope to speak to her in the next hour here on bbc breakfast. belgian officials have admitted they knew that eggs from dutch farms might be contaminated with an insecticide a month before the issue became public. belgium's food safety agency said it had kept quiet because of an ongoing fraud investigation. shops in belgium, the netherlands and germany, have removed the eggs from sale. tough new sanctions will be imposed on north korea following the country's recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests. the un voted unanimously for the resolution to ban some north korean exports, like iron, coal, and lead, and to limit investments
in the country. pyongyang has been under un sanctions for almost a decade, but refuses to end its nuclear programmes. the us secretary of state rex tillerson will meet his korean, russian, and chinese counterparts at the summit of the association of southeast asian nations in manila today. mr tillerson willjoin talks about north korea's weapons programme, which is expected to be one of the main topics. last week the us claimed that china was not doing enough to stop north korea's nuclear ambitions. and we have been talking about it all morning. history was made last night as usain bolt made his final individual appearance at a major championships. but it wasn't the fairy tale end to his glittering career that may were hoping for. jess is at the london stadium for us this morning. you have all of the sport news on a morning where people are no doubt still talking about what happened
last night. it is the only story in town this morning. good morning. it wasn't meant to be for usain bolt, who bowed out of his final 100—metre race, beaten into third place at the world championships, asjustin gatlin claimed his second world title. bolt hadn't been at his sparkling best coming into these championships and he was always trying to make up ground in the final last night. gatlin, who won his first would crown back in 2005, stormed through at the finish to take the title from bolt, with american, christian coleman, finishing second. that's what killed me. normally, i would get better turna rounds, but it didn't come together. that is what killed me. i felt like it was there.
know what i mean? i didn't get it. that's why i lost. it isjust one of those things. how are you managing the emotion? your last individual race in a championship? it's rough, do you know what i mean? a championship. i did my best. it is a surreal moment. i thought of all the things i would do if i did win and i did none of that. it was almost like 200a all over again. i got a victory by a little margin and just got across the line with that excitement. it is amazing. usain bolt‘s last race. so many victories in so many losses. to run against him all of those years... yeah.
so, not the golden goodbye that bolt wanted. many of his family and friends had travelled over from jamaica to see his final individual race, he races again in the ax100 relay next weekend of course. afterwards, his dad reflected on his son's performance. i am a little bit sad. but, of course, it happens sometimes. i was doubtful he would win the race. but finishing third, i just have to accept the result. 0n reflection, would it have been better to retire after rio? not really. i was trying to persuade him to go for one more year. he was telling me it is time to go. elsewhere, british eyes on the track were focussed on laura muir who was running in the semi finals of the women's 1,500 metres. she comfortably qualified for the final. she came in second behind faith kipyegon.
laura weightman also made it through her semi—final. it was really surprising. i thought really good. yeah, the 1500 is scrappy. i just wanted to get that final and i have done that now. katarina johnson—thompson has work to do today to get a medal in the heptathlon. an impressive run in the 200 metres lifted her back up to fourth in the standings, and helped to repair some of the damage done after a poor high jump earlier in the day. i am not going to lie, it was very hard. i went back to the hotel. had a bath. there was a lot of crying. it is a seven—event. it was only event two. last year, after getting 1.98 in thejumping, i'm not going to let that happen again. england are on top heading into day three of the fourth test against south africa
at old trafford. jonny bairstow smashed 99 for england as they posted 362 in theirfirst innings. in reply, james anderson took four wickets on his home ground to help reduce the touring side to 220 for nine in reply. england lead 1a2 runs. it was nice to stick around with jonny bairstow for a bit. it was good to get to three figures. a fantastic knock. getting to 360, it is a competitive score. myjob is to take wickets. it is always nice to get a cluster. those three wickets after tea were key for the team. leigh griffiths scored the 200th goal of his club career as celtic started the defence of their scottish premiership title with a a—1win over hearts. elsewhere, hibernian marked their return to the premiership with victory over partick thistle. ross county and st johnstone also won.
john terry captained aston villa on his debut in the championship yesterday but couldn't help them to three points against hull city. jarrod bowen scored the second half equaliser in a 1—1 draw. south korea's kim has a comfortable lead after three rounds of the women's british open at kingsbarns in fife. she starts the day on 17—under—par, six shots clear of england's georgia hall who is tied for second. the bad news is usain bolt lost. there is good news. he will be back in action on the ax100 metres in jamaica. that will be on saturday. count down to that. lots to look
forward to. and british prospects as well. both lauras running well yesterday. katarina johnson—thompson could possibly bring things back and stay in contention. but usain bolt and justin gatlin, that is what people are talking about. debate is raging. some people are standing up forjustin gatlin. to still come back on top even after all of that negativity. he deserved the win. this person is feeling deflated and frustrated and angry that the he should not have been allowed to run as he is still benefiting from doping. the effects of that can be long—lasting. doping. the effects of that can be long-lasting. this person said ok, he did not win his last race, stop being negative, bbc breakfast, he is
a legend. that is true. the british athletics team are in back in action again today as the world championships continue today. here's a quick look ahead to some of the moments you won't want to miss. britain's top finisher at the london marathon, josh griffiths, will be one to keep an eye on. katarina johnson—thompson, she beat three—time world champion jessica ennis—hill. jamaica's elaine thompson will only run the 100m. there is coverage through the day on bbc two from 930 this morning. and later on bbc one from 630. don't
forget all of the coverage on 5 live as well if you are out and about. it doesn't have the same profile as football or volleyball, but handball is becoming more popular since it became a hit with audiences during the 2012 olympic games. now, a brand new championship has started in the uk that's part of the european handball tour. so, mike bushell decided to give it a go, and where better to try it out, than on the golden sands of poole beach? there is something so appealing about sport on a beach. i can smell barbecues, people are out on pal board, the ocean is inviting. —— paddleboards. that is why beach handball and volleyball have grown to such an extent. beach handball is
a legacy of the london 2012 olympics when its host, read britain, were able to bring in a handball team. —— great britain. they wanted to bring ina great britain. they wanted to bring in a younger crowd so they brought it to the beach and get that extra flair. it is more social and chilled out. the main differences are you get extra points for trick shots and ones that are spectacular. two points for doing an alley oop like in basketball. the sand is soft so you don't have to worry about landing properly. we will work on that. it is a work in progress. i think that was a fluke! it is so accessible. it breaks all of the
stereotypes of netball and rugby and all of that. anyone can play any level can come in. girls in particular don't care about throwing themselves on the sand so it is not quite as scary. sometimes when we tackle it is comfortable to land on the floor. you are on the beach, not in the hall all year round. you can drop it after three steps and pass it. four a side, three and a keeper. you are on sand so it is a bit tricky. there is a nice physicality in rugby. but with the speed and pace, you get more with football which i am used to. you can dive around more and have more fun. oh, i tell you what, ten minutes is absolutely exhausting running up and down on the sand. but at least there
isa down on the sand. but at least there is a quick way to cool off. mike bushell, bbc news, poole. that reminds me of vladimir putin. it did look good! the weather was a bit better! you're watching breakfast from bbc news. the main stories this morning: usain bolt has failed to win his final individual 100 metre race at the world athletics championships. the eight time 0lympic champion came third, with america'sjustin gatlin taking gold. an independent review into the cost of energy has been launched just days after british gas increased electricity prices by 12.5% for three million customers. also coming up in the programme... he's the three time 0lympian who also holds down a full time job in greggs, and he's a dad to six—year—old twins! no wonder the sri lankan marathon runner is thinking about retiring from athletics. we'll meet him later. let's ta ke
let's take a look at the weather, you might have plans for this sunday. jay is with us. good morning, a nice sunrise somewhere by the coast? a lovely sunrise bore many parts. a bright start, some nice sunshine for many but it's also a bit fresh. major towns and cities hanging on to double figures, but in more rural spots, single figures quite widely, low enough for a touch of grass frost in some parts of rural scotland but a bright start for many, not for all because we have this weather system coming in from the west bringing a bit of a breeze, cloud and rain into northern ireland through this morning, not such a bright start here but rain on the move, drifting ever eastwards so things going downhill through the day in scotland and north—western england and west and wales. equally things will begin to brighten up in northern ireland but with showers in the afternoon and that rain will
ta ke the afternoon and that rain will take longest to get to the far north—east of scotland but elsewhere it will be cloudy and wet. not too much rain to the eastern side of the pennines but in cumbria i suspect the rain will be heavy for a time and quite wet in the western side of wales. increasingly cloudy in the south—west of england but staying mostly dry and for most of the midlands and eastern england a decent day, a bright start, increasing cloud in the afternoon but staying dry and bright so a decent day at the london stadium, increasing cloud but temperatures into the low 20s by the middle of the afternoon. through this evening, the afternoon. through this evening, the rain will be there or thereabouts in northern england and parts of wales and to the north of that, showers around, should be dry to the south—east but pretty wet for much of the date on monday in the south—west of the uk and into the south—west of the uk and into the south of wales, persistent rainfall here, not a great day. scattered showers and sunny spells to the north of that and largely dry in the south—east, the far south—east seeing some sunshine and relatively warm at 22 or 23. overall this
coming week isn't looking great. low pressure to the east of the uk, quite a brisk northerly wind and weather fronts will bring outbreaks of rain as well so rather unsettled over the next few days with heavy rain and showers around. the wind coming down from the north went to anything for the temperatures. thanks very much, jay. we'll be back with the headlines at 8am but now it's time for the travel show. coming up on this week's travel show: ben is seeking out beats in pakistan. i'm getting my kicks in thailand. i am about to step in the ring with momo. he looks really mean. this is a country that some governments say you probably shouldn't visit as a tourist, pakistan. terror—related incidents,
kidnappings and political turmoil have all taken their toll on the country's reputation. and as the country prepares to celebrate its 70th anniversary of independence, the travel show‘s benjamin zand packed his backpack and headed for karachi. i was in karachi, pakistan, on the search for some good news. as a man who likes music, like pretty much everyone else in the world, i thought it would be a good place to start. so i decided it was time to check out karachi's music scene. historically, being a musician here has been hard. musicians and gigs have often been targeted by religious extremists. but i had heard that things were getting better and some great tunes and artists were coming out as a consequence. so on an insanely hot day injuly i find out more. 0n the breakfast show. what is it like being a musician?
is it hard? it is but it has become a lot better to the point that we have actually come out and started doing more outdoor events. we have food festivals, we have music festivals. we have lots of concerts in the last year. people are not afraid any more to come out and go to a concert. what is the driving force? is that these kind of young musicians who are just like, i don't care, i'm going to be a musician? yes. there was a music festival that took place in lahore about a month ago. a week before the event there was a really tragic bomb blast took place in lahore so we had to figure out whether we were going to have the event or not these after that. we ultimately decided to do it. not out of any other reason than the fact that it should happen regardless of what is happening in the city. and that was amazing. i wanted to see for myself how pakistan was changing. and meet someone from this new era of artists. so i asked my new friends. i want to hear some rap. the name they gave me was ali gul pir. are you ali?
hey. nice to meet you. sorry for being late. long time. i know. how's it going? good, good, good. i feel like i'm meeting a superstar. you should not think that. i look like a bum. ali was jamming with his friends, preparing for a gig the following day. i talk about issues that we face as a society. it is something like there is a song about feudalism, feudal landlords and the power. there is another song about people who stare at women. i grew up with a single mother and i saw her face a lot of that growing up so i made a song about that. youtube was banned in pakistan so i made a song about that. ali wanted me to go with him to his gig so of course i said yes.
we set off on a road trip. it was the first time ali would ever be playing in hyderabad and he was excited. and so was i. i left the band to go and prepare for the show elsewhere. i carried on to the location alone. this could not be more different from the image most people get when you think of pakistan. we are watching two beat boxers perform to an audience full of young people eating pizza and enjoying life waiting for a rap group to come on. i only knowjustin bieber. you only knowjustin bieber? yes. i am a very great fan. you are a belieber? i am a belieber. # touch me like you do. # what are you waiting for? that was good. well done. thank you. soon ali and his band arrives. are you nervous? i am always nervous. i have done hundreds of shows but i still get nervous before a show.
before he went on stage i decided to ask why he puts himself through all of this. by the end of the show i go home and i go like, great, i made them dance, and i made them think as well. a lot of people when they think of pakistan think of the taliban, terror, and they would think that being a musician would be difficult as a consequence. have they got it all wrong? my content gets me into trouble with some bad people but you can see a thousand people here having fun. and there is no taliban here. you don't have to be nervous about security because it happens and if it is going to happen it is going to happen. it has never happened. i have never been shot at while performing and stuff like that. i need to speak to these people. my audience is this. they are more or less the same people. they just want to survive
and make a good living. they want to be happy. in the end of the day theyjust want to make a living. music gives them hope. we lack education. we lack proper employment. there is a lot of corruption. at the end of the day somebody goes back home happy, i think that's what i give them. a little bit of happiness, a little bit of hope. everyone should be a pioneer, right? it's no good to follow. you should lead. you should do something. that's where the risk is. it might not work, but if it does, it'll be the best. finally this week, i'm in bangkok finding out why thailand's national
sport is drawing visitors from around the globe. muay thai is said to have been developed by thai warriors in the battlefields of the 1ath century where it became known as the art of the eight limbs. fighters battle it out in villages and towns across the country but only the very best make it here to the stadiums of bangkok. this is rajadamnern stadium, it's the oldest of its sort here in bangkok and it's held host to many a legendary muay thai fight and tonight is no different. tickets to the the main part of the arena start at 1,000 baht which is just under us$30. for that you can watch several bouts made up of five rounds. the competitor who lands the most
strikes on their opponent's body wins that particular round. like boxing, you can also win by knockout. the atmosphere is amazing. these fighters are astonishing watching up close and personal. but some bright spark at the travel show decided it was a good thing for me to try it out first hand so tomorrow morning i'm heading over to an actual muay thai camp that trains the fighters from all over thailand. i hope i don't come out the other end too bruised and banged up. i head a5 minutes to the north of bangkok to the gym where some of the country's top champions live and train. tourists who want to get fit can
stay at camps like this throughout thailand but this place is known as the country's toughest. how's the experience been so far? good, man. these guys, they're tough. really, really tough. you always think of leaning into a punch. with muay thai, you have to stay pretty much dead centre, keep your weight evenly distributed. it's weird, it's like breaking habits. children here start learning from a very young age and it takes years to master the practice. i'm about to step in the ring with momo who is the top contender for muay thai in japan. he looks really mean. look at his abs.
they look ridiculous! i have fair way to go yet. practice, yeah? i think i'm going to have to call it a day. these guys are finely tuned athletes. i have had the tiniest of training here. it's been absolutely amazing but my time here is done so i hope you enjoyed my agony. i'm very relieved to say that it for
this week but coming up on next week's travel show: coming up next week, barjan begins hisjourney from the far west to the far east of india as the country celebrates 70 yea rs of india as the country celebrates 70 years of independence. join us for that if you can but don't forget you can that if you can but don't forget you ca n follow that if you can but don't forget you can follow us wherever we are in the world byjoining our social media feeds, all the details are on your screens now but from me, henry golding, and the rest of the travel show team in bangkok, thailand, goodbye. hello this is breakfast, with rachel burden and rogerjohnson. the greatest sprinter of all time fails to secure a 20th global gold as he prepares to exit the world stage. it is just it isjust one it is just one of those things. i cannot say much, ijust did not execute when it mattered. so here at the london stadium,
it was bronze for bolt — gold for gatlin. the controversial american stunned the crowd by taking the title. and he paid his own tribute to his great rival bolt. good morning it's sunday the 6th of august. ministers launch a review into the cost of energy — but consumer groups say it's "cold comfort" for households that are already paying too much.
