farewell but itjust 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 a second world title. bolt hadn't been at his best coming into these championships and he was always trying to make up ground in the final last night after a bad start. 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. the start. 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 is just 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? it was up and down, i was a little bit stressed, but i come out here andi bit stressed, but i come out here and i take it as any 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 2004 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... an amazing night. so not the golden goodbye that bolt wanted. former british 400 metre runner iwan thomas himself suffered at the hands of drugs cheats
at the 1997 world athletics championships and he told breakfast earlier that he has doubts about whether gatlin should have been allowed to compete. as an athlete you have to be responsible for what you put inside your body, be it supplements of the food you eat. you know what you're eating and i think if someone has bent the rules, clearly i think a ban should be longer, it should be a lifetime ban because what message are we sending out to future generations. this stadium is packed with kids and they want to love athletics for the right reason. the way to voice how we feel is to be silent. let us be silent and dignified. there are two other guys oi'i dignified. there are two other guys on the podium, usain bolt himself. who is going on during the medal
ceremony, we have two be careful. 0ur athletes will be competing in america and you don't want one of those situations where we hate the americans. it isn't one of those situations, but it could get built up situations, but it could get built up into it, but it's not. its drug cheats and we are tired of it. 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 felt really good. a girl went down at one point. 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 if she is to win 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 and had a bath. there was a lot of crying. it was only event two. last year, after getting 1.98 in thejumping, i'm not going to let that happen again. there are six gold medals to be won today, including in the women's heptathlon. we'll be watching katarina johnson—thompson. the first event is this morning at 10am — the long jump. later on, holly bradshaw will be in the final of the high jump. england are on top heading into day three of the fourth and final test against south africa
at old trafford. jonny bairstow made 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 visitors to 220 for 9 in reply. england lead by 142 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 began the defence of their scottish premiership title with a 4—1win over hearts. elsewhere there were wins for hibernian,
ross county and stjohnstone. john terry captained aston villa on his debut in the championship yesterday but couldn't lead them to victory against hull city. jarrod bowen scored the second half equaliser in a 1—1 draw. details of all yesterday's football league results are on the bbc sport website. and the fa cup final might be 286 days away but the competition got under way yesterday with the extra preliminary round. the bbc is showing a match from all the qualifying stages. we focused on litherland against afc liverpool yesterday. litherland won 2—0. wembley here they come. plenty of football this afternoon as well, of course, including the community shield at wembley. league winners chelsea take on fa cup winners arsenal in the traditional curtain raiser
to the new premier league season. it was a pity to lose the game, to lose the final against arsenal after a really good season for us. now there is another game and we know very well that arsenal is a strong tea m very well that arsenal is a strong team and they are making the game very difficult for us. we want to start the season with a win, it will be difficult for the same arsenal. we're going for the first trophy of the season. there is a desire as
well to be ready for the championship. we need to give competition also to players that need it. that's all the sport. now on bbc news it's time for the papers. hello and welcome to our look at this morning's papers. with me are caroline crampton from the new statesman and the political commentatorjames millar. first, let's take a quick look at what's on the front pages. the sunday telegraph has a photograph of usain bolt and justin gatlin after their controversial 100 metres final, but its main story is about brexit. the paper reports the the uk is prepared to pay up to £36 billion to settle the brexit divorce bill. it says it's the first time a precise figure has been proposed. the independent on sunday also focuses on brexit
and a warning from scientists about the government's intention to leave the eu's nuclear agency. the observer concentrates on advice from the children's commissioner, who's concerned that many kids are bingeing on social media like junk food. the mail on sunday says it has found that around 40% of police stations have been closed down in seven years. the sunday times reports that british students are being discriminated against by universities, in favour of more lucrative foreign students. the sunday mirror has a story we've been reporting on today, the ordeal of a british model who was kidnapped in milan. and the sunday express chooses to feature prince harry and his girlfriend, the actress meghan markle, as they arrive in botswana for a break. so let's begin. let's start with the telegraph. the
big picture of usain bolt. he lost and only got a bronze. what does that say about the world of athletics? it is a great picture because the winner has his back to the camera which tells the story. no one ca res the camera which tells the story. no one cares about the winner because he isa one cares about the winner because he is a drugs cheat and he got booed when he won and all the rest of it. but bolt took the adulation of the crowd because he has been a great athlete and i have to say, i'm quite pleased he lost. that might be controversial. it proves he is human. if he finished and had never been beaten, there will be questions as to how he has been so invincible. i think it has humanised him a bit more. controversy about the crowd booing and jeering gatlin. some say
people should just have been silent. fans will do what they want to do. booing is an acceptable reaction, just like cheering is when someone wins. it was interesting, the interviews we saw with athletes afterwards how usain bolt, rather than looking back at his or saying that he had been beaten by someone who had been banned for being a drugs cheat, he just talked about his performance. a lot of people also say that if you are dropped for drugs cheating once and even twice, you should be banned for life. gatlin‘s win adds to that argument. you same bolt is retiring because he
is 30 and knocking on, butjustin gatlin is 35. it does seem unusual, to say the least. let us move on to the main story in the sunday telegraph, the eu brexit divorce bill. there has been talk about how much the divorce feel might be. 100 billion is the top and figure, but 110w billion is the top and figure, but now for the first time, according to the sunday telegraph, we have got a figure. it is 40 billion euros, or £36 billion. does that sound about right? who can say? so many figures are floating around, but what is clear is that we will pay so boris johnson's statement that the eu can go whistle, we need not pay any attention to it. we will have to make contributions to the eu after
we have left in order to maintain certain benefits and smooth the way toa certain benefits and smooth the way to a transitional arrangement. what is interesting is the sourcing for this story. this isn't one random person saying this, there are three separate sources in whitehall and government. this is probably a fairly excepted fact in the civil service in whitehall and it's now a question of managing the media and people's expectations. that is tricky because a lot of people who voted for brexit will say that we should not have to pay a penny. this takes us back to the misinformation of the eu referendum campaign. people who voted for brexit and who believe in that side of the argument we re believe in that side of the argument were told that. it was wrong that they were told that, so it's understandable they make that assumption. james, this is something that has to be sorted out from the
eu's point of view. if we are going to have a new trade agreement, this has to be sorted out. this figure of 36 billion, i have a problem with that. i have havejust been on holiday and i think that 40 billion euros equals 40 billion quid! it seems we will be paying for access to eu benefits, which will cost about £10 billion a year. the actual pay—out that we have to fork out for oui’ pay—out that we have to fork out for our liability in terms of projects that are ongoing in eastern europe, pensions, buildings, all this sort of literary bricks and mortar in some cases, that they are saying will be 10 billion. i'm not sure the eu will settle for just will be 10 billion. i'm not sure the eu will settle forjust 10 billion. we know what the eu figure is, it is 60 billion. but this figure, is it
the british offer, if you like and it's not necessarily what the eu are going to settle for? it's a haggling process. it is, and this is a low first appeared. i'm sure somewhere deepin first appeared. i'm sure somewhere deep in whitehall is the upper bound of what they will go to. that will be interesting. james, let's talk about children bingeing on social media. the children za is warning of kids being on the tablets and smartphones all the time. it's like junk food. it is a good sunday story because all parents are concerned that the children are on screen is too much. but parents have been worried about that since the dawn of television to some extent. it is interesting because kids don't watch television any more. they do watch youtube as social media. that's just the way it is, things have changed.
there is a lot of talk about comparing it to junk food. there is a lot of talk about comparing it to junk foodlj there is a lot of talk about comparing it to junk food. i am sure pa rents comparing it to junk food. i am sure parents will be screaming at the television right now. stop them bingeing on social media, but how do you do it? the children tsar doesn't seem you do it? the children tsar doesn't seem to have any ideas of how to do this. adults of a problem with this as well. speaking for myself, none of us seem to be able to do much about it. the stories light on evidence that it is bad for kids. i know there is a feeling that should be out climbing trees rather than watching youtube, but there is a lot of good stuff on the internet. there was a balance to be struck.|j
suppose one of the things is that they don't read books as much as they don't read books as much as they used to? the summer reading challenge comes around every year and they are encouraged to go to the library. it doesn't have to be an either or. speaking of education, the sunday times said that universities are taking foreign stu d e nts universities are taking foreign students ahead of british students. is that true? that's what the story is suggesting. it's a good story for the moment because we have a level results coming up next week and the obligatory picture of some happy students hugging each other. female students. of course. this is less a story about students are more about universities in the way they are funded because what lies behind this is not that universities wish to betray sixth formers, but just that non—eu international students bring
in higher fees. universities have had the government grants cut progressively and have to make up the shortfall somehow. with brexit coming along, eu students, there is a lot of uncertainty about how many will be admitted, so this kind of makes sense. the suggestion is they can get into british universities with lower academic requirements. nothing like with the a—levels, where you need two az and a b. yes, they have these access courses that are being run by two or three big companies that they say will guarantee you a place at university, but you do have to passed the course to get in. it does play into that fear, especially if you have kids who have taken a—levels. will they be beaten to the line? they are using figures in an interesting way.
foran example, using figures in an interesting way. for an example, manchester university, british graduates have declined by 10%. in terms of bold numbers, those figures will be different because there will be 10% ofa different because there will be 10% of a huge bigger number of british undergraduates and 50% of a smaller number. the journalist dudes pose as an international student and he was told that he would be guaranteed a place. i think we are getting ahead of ourselves. i think that was just one incident. all right, let us have a look at the mail on sunday. criminal — 40% of police stations
shut down. we think about fuh bobbies on the beat, on the street maybe, but this is about police stations. —— fuh bobbies. maybe, but this is about police stations. -- fuh bobbies. the figures on this one are quite controversial. there has been a lot of discussion after the recent terrorist attacks. i think the daily mail has gone with this because he was the home secretary in 2010? i think it is a coded attack against the prime minister. good analysis.
and, of course, amber rudd is the current home secretary and is being talked up as the next leader of the conservative party. is it a bit like high street banks? some people might argue that you don't need as many police stations physically as had we had in the past? what was the last time any of us and she went to a police station? i used to go as a cop reporter, but i haven't been for a very long time, but there is something about closing police stations. it makes you think that it's a bit dodgy. there seems to be only one police station in northumbria that you can walk into. what people would want to know is because this is a worry headline, is that 0k, police stations are being
cut, but our police response times good? if i call 999 the nonemergency number, will someone still come and help quickly as possible? if the response times are good, maybe people won't mind that there aren't as many police stations. the last story, prince harry sweeping megan off to botswana. a lot of papers are wondering whether he will propose. probably not! as i have learned from the mail on sunday, they have previous coverage of when prince harry took his former girlfriend chelsea to africa with the same headline. does the new statesman
have a view on this? people going on holiday, but them. are you fascinated by megan and harry?|j can't fascinated by megan and harry?” can't say i am, to be honest? there has been so much bad news and whatever you think of royal weddings, they are big news to most people in the country, but actually a royal wedding to look forward to is perhaps what the country needs to look forward to to bring it together after a ll look forward to to bring it together after all the brexit staff. so you are calling for a royal wedding? that or an england world cup win.” think the royal wedding is more likely! that's it for the papers. thank you both forjoining me. just a reminder we take a look at tomorrows front pages every evening at 10.40pm here on bbc news. coming up on bbc one after this programme is sunday morning live.
with the details, we say good morning to sean fletcher. good morning. coming up on sunday morning live lord sugar spells out why he thinks politician should face legal action if they lie. the controversial princess diana tapes are being broadcast this evening. also asking, do the royal family deserve more privacy? and is embryo research gateway to designer babies? join at10am. thank you. now it's time for a look at the weather. bit of a mixed bag this weekend. this weather system is moving in from the atlantic, bringing breeds and cloud and some rain. it has been and cloud and some rain. it has been a wet start to the day in northern
ireland, windy as well. it is on the move, crossing the irish sea and heading into central parts of scotla nd heading into central parts of scotland and the western side of wales. there will be some improvement this afternoon as the more persistent rain pushes across scotland. not too much rain gets east of the pennines, but it will be wet in cumbria and in the western side of wales. not much rain gets into the south—west of england, but it will be quite cloudy and after a bright start further east, more clouds, but staying fine and dry. temperatures in the lower 20s. it looks good at wembley this afternoon for arsenal and chelsea in the community shield. similar temperatures down towards the london stadium. again, a pretty decent day, staying dry with patchy cloud. this
evening and overnight, we have rain across the north of england. some will get towards the eastern side and it is what overnight across the north—west of england and wales. north of that, a scattering of showers to the north and east. monday, this weather front is not moving too far too quickly, so it will be a dull and damp start from northern england. for the south—west the rain will be there all day. the far south—east corner should be mainly dry. 22 degrees again with the top temperature in the london area. and then thought much of the coming week it is looking unsettled. low pressure to the east of the uk. whether france will bring rain. a squeeze on the isobars on tuesday into wednesday with some northerly
winds. also some heavy rain and showers. 0ver winds. also some heavy rain and showers. over the next few days, changeable weather. if you need more details, the is plenty more on the website. —— there is plenty more on the website. that's it from me for now. goodbye. this is bbc news. i'm ben brown. the headlines at 10: shock as usain bolt loses to a two—time drugs cheat. as crowds booed, justin gatlin defended his right to compete. i've done so much for the communities back home. i want them to know mistakes can happen. but you can come back and work hard for them. and you know you can be
