11:01 am
for a medal in the heptathlon. england are on top as they're about to head into day three of the fourth and final test against south africa at old trafford. and the dateline london panel examine ireland's growing fears around brexit. that's in half an hour, here on bbc news. good morning and welcome to bbc news. the world of sport is in shock this morning after usain bolt was beaten in his last solo race at the world athletics championships in london. he lost to justin gatlin, who has been banned from the sport twice for drugs cheating and was booed and jeered by the capacity crowd at the london stadium. gatlin ran in 9.92 seconds,
11:02 am
with christian coleman coming in second place. bolt finished in 9.95 seconds to take only the bronze. our sports editor dan roan has more. with the night sky crackling with excitement, the fireworks gave a sense of what was to come. commentator: usain bolt! lapping up the adulation for one last time in an individual final, bolt knew his buildup hadn't been perfect, beaten in the semi—final by young american, christian coleman. his starts also have been shaky. commentator: 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
11:03 am
from arrogance to humility. and as the american basked in unpopular glory, 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 here expected usain bolt to win his final 100 metres 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. i have come back to the sport, i have worked hard. i have faced all the penalties and the rules. i have inspired other athletes to be better, young athletes, and i've done so much in the communities back home. and i want them to know, you know, 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. our sports presenterjessica
11:04 am
creighton is at the london stadium and a little earlier she gave us this update on the games. it was a night of drama and i don't think any of the thousands of fans here last night expected the result that played out on the track, but usain bolt is a man that has lit up tracks around the world for over a decade and despite not getting the golden farewell everyone hoped for, he still has fans around the world that are willing him to win. this is some of the reaction from his home country injamaica. gatlin beat him. i can't believe it, man! gatlin beat him. he crossed the line and he madejamaica proud. he is the best thing to happen to track and field ever. we love him and we support him no matter what.
11:05 am
it is the morning after the night before. we just want to reflect on what played out, the drama that unfolded. with me is iwan thomas. we heard the boos forjustin gatlin once the crowd realised he had won. considering he has been banned on two occasions, should he have been in the race? his first ban was for medication for adhd he took as a youngster, the second he says was a massage oil that he did not know was being used on him. on one hand, he has done the time within the laws of the sport and he is rightfully here and he ran well, he is 35 years old and he performed when it matters. but the athletics fan in me thinks that if you have taken a banned substance you should be banned for ever.
11:06 am
i almost felt for him last night. the world champion sat on the track and i was luckily the first person to speak to usain bolt and everyone was going crazy for him. he will always be the people's champion. in gatlin you have someone with a chequered past, and in usain bolt you have the saviour of our sport. were the fans‘ frustrations misdirected? gatlin has not done anything wrong in terms of being here and racing and winning the race. it is the iaaf that has allowed him to compete. the iaaf are trying very hard to clean up the sport and in doing that you have to highlight the fact we have issues in all sports and people will try to cheat. what the iaaf are doing well is looking at past medallists as far as 2009, retesting samples, and giving those medals to the rightful owners. clean athletes are getting their moment to shine.
11:07 am
which is fantastic. perhaps they do need to look at the laws of the sport and if you have been banned more than once it should be a lifetime ban but at the moment gatlin is running as he is allowed to do. it's just a shame usain bolt did not win, as everyone wanted to see. maybe apart from america. it was usain bolt‘s last individual race and this is someone who has lit up the track for so many years and won everything there is to win. what contribution has he made to athletics and sport in general? you cannot measure it. he actually apologised last night, he said i apologise for not performing. i said, i'll stop you right now, you have nothing to apologise for. he was the saviour of track and field, he came into the sport when it was in a bad place. he is a showman, he is so charismatic and no doubt
11:08 am
we will miss usain bolt. he is a one off. is there anyone that could replace him at the moment? i think it will fall to the south african runner who is the first man to run under ten for the 100... i think he will start doing the 200 metres as well and perhaps become more like michaeljohnson. but you cannot replace usain bolt and you should not try. he is like a lost pet you once had. the pet may go up but will always be in your heart. he was a freak of nature. katarina johnson thompson goes in the heptathlon on the second day. she did not have the best of days yesterday, setting in forth at the moment. she is so talented, perhaps we put too much pressure on her.
11:09 am
the highjump did not go as well as it could have done but she came back in the 200 metres and ran such a fast time to put her back in contention for a medal. she will have to have a strong second day but it is all about being consistent. this is obviously a world—class field but she has the talent to get a medal and if she puts together a fantastic second day she could do it. she has moved her training base from the uk down to france, to really develop as an athlete. what effect might that have? hopefully it will help. mo did something similar, moved to america and changed his this whole lifestyle and look what mo farah has become. ijust hope she can live up to her promise because we all know how talented she is, she needs to do it here and fingers crossed she will. lots for the british fans to look forward to. thank you forjoining us. not the result people might have wanted yesterday
11:10 am
but there is still lots of action and lots of excitement for the british athletes on day three of these world championships. 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. let's get more on this story with tom burke, the chairman of eg3 an independent climate change think tank. the new review ordered, is this a goodidea? the new review ordered, is this a good idea? i welcome the idea of more information but i don't think it will uncover anything which is new, it is a three—month review. it
11:11 am
is being led by a well—informed person but it is unlikely he will be adding anything to the equation that is already there. what we know, if you want to achieve the fuel poverty reduction goals and your climate goals anyone to improve the efficiency of the economy, what you need to do is improve the energy efficiency of your building stock, thatis efficiency of your building stock, that is the quickest and most reliable and most secure way of driving bills down. and doing it permanently. the professor who is running the review says it will be independent and it will sort out the fa cts independent and it will sort out the facts from the myths about the cost of energy. i'm always troubled by someone of energy. i'm always troubled by someone who of energy. i'm always troubled by someone who comes up of energy. i'm always troubled by someone who comes up with the line, fa cts someone who comes up with the line, facts and myths, that often means they want you to use their facts and not your facts. we saw this with the airport commission and a chest too, it is very difficult to do this, especially in three months, these are highly contested areas and
11:12 am
there's a lot of opinion and very differentjudgments there's a lot of opinion and very different judgments about what the fa cts different judgments about what the facts mean, and that is what matters. what do they mean for people in their daily lives. is there a link between this review and there a link between this review and the controversial price hike we had for british gas? prices going up by 12.5%. there is for british gas? prices going up by 12.596. there is a link blame game, the industry wants to blame the government and the government wants to blame the industry and they are both at fault, in reality. utilities have not passed on the benefit of falling energy prices and government has failed to implement its building regulations as effectively as it could. there is about may be 25% more savings we did get in our energy demand through efficient proper use of the building stock and infrastructure and investing it as if it were infrastructure, if we could get those savings it would
11:13 am
drive down bills permanently and also improve the overall efficiency of the economy and meeting our climate targets. we heard in the election about the promise of a price cap on energy. what happened to that? laughter the government has adopted the ed miliband policy suddenly which they roundly rubbished and in both cases it was probably an attempt to manage the headlines rather than really change the outcomes. this won't be brought about by tinkering in the margins of price policy, this will be brought about if the government decides to make this part of its infrastructure programme, industrial strategy, harnesses the energy in the cities to do this and then drives it forward as a proper investment programme. thanks for joining us. the liberal democrat leader, sir vince has criticised elderly brexit supporters for, as he puts it, this
11:14 am
"comprehensively shafting" young people in the uk. writing in the mail on sunday, sir vince said that older voters have had the last word on brexit by imposing a world view coloured by a nostalgia for an imperial past. a crew member has been found dead and two others are missing after two boats collided and one sank off the west sussex coast. the boats collided about two miles off the coast of shoreham. a fourth person was rescued and taken to hospital. coastguards are carrying out searches between worthing pier in the west and brighton in the east. the headlines on bbc news: american sprinter, justin gatlin, has defended his right to compete — despite two drugs bans — after being booed when he defeated usain bolt at the world athletics championships. president trump welcomes china and russia's backing for new un sanctions against north korea. the us ambassador said it was "the most stringent set
11:15 am
of sanctions on any country in a generation". a review into the cost of energy is dismissed as "cold comfort" by consumer groups, who say households are already paying too much. let's get more on the sport. we have athletics and cricket. it is a big day indeed. so not the golden goodbye that bolt wanted. but the issue of whetherjustin gatlin should have been on the starting line up in the first place has dominated the headlines today — he's served two bans for doping over the years. the heckerling rang around the
11:16 am
stadium when the crowd realised justin gatlin was the winner —— the heckling. well, former 0lympic champion darren campbell — who missed out on medals at the hands of drugs cheats in the past — says there's a way for fans to make theirfeelings known.. i think the way we need to voice how we feel is just be silent and dignified about it. there are two other guys on the podium, usain bolt himself, last memories, boos going on while the medal ceremony is on. we have to be careful. 0ur athletes have to go and compete in america and you do not want it to be like, we hate the americans. it is not that situation but that is what it
11:17 am
could get built into. it is not an american thing, it is drugs cheats. we are tired of it. katarina johnson—thompson has been taking part in the long jump in the heptathlon. it went very well for her indeed. 6.56 was enough for her to finish second and she is now in the bronze medal position. she has two more events left. british bands really enjoyed that performance from her. —— fans. there's quite a bit for the crowds to look forward to. absolutely. what else can we expect later on? we have two more events for katarina johnson—thompson, then
11:18 am
she moved into the silver medal position? —— can she moved. she will have the javelin and the 800 metres. a very impressive british showing in the semifinals of the women's 1500 the semifinals of the women's1500 metres. holly bradshaw will compete in the pole vault final. and one of the greatest in the 400 metres. wayde van niekerk will go in the 400 metres semifinal. it looks like it will be a cracking day. as always, thanks. day three of the fourth and final test between england and south africa at old trafford and england just needed 15 minutes to wrap up the south african innings. south africa resumed this morning on 220—9 but the proteas were only able to add six runs
11:19 am
before stuart broad dismissed duanne 0livier. that means that england have a first innings lead of 136 runs and will begin their second innings shortly. the domestic football season is under way. the championship and scottish premiership seasons started yesterday and today it's the community shield at wembley. league winners chelsea take on fa cup winners arsenal in the traditional "friendly" ahead of the premier league season. it was a pity to lose the fa cup against arsenal after a great season for us. but now there is another game and we know very well that arsenal is a strong team. and we are waiting for a difficult game and we wa nt to waiting for a difficult game and we want to try to start the season with a whim but the same for arsenal. —— with a whim. for us, just a good
11:20 am
opportunity to repeat the performance we had in the final. and go for the first trophy of the with power. and with a desire —— is first trophy of the season with power. and to be ready for the premier league and to give time to players who need it. it is looking good for the england cricket team, just about to start their second innings. thanks for joining us. president trump has welcomed the latest un sanctions on north korea— saying they will have a big financial impact on the regime in pyongyang. the measures were agreed unanimously by the un security council last night. 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
11:21 am
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.
11:22 am
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. the us secretary of state rex tillerson is in the philippines where he will meet his korean, russian, and chinese counterparts at the summit of the association of southeast asian nations today. the north korean foreign minister will also be taking part in the meeting — with the country's nuclear programme expected to be a main topic — but us officials said there were no plans for the two to meet privately. rex tillerson had this to say ahead of the talks. three engagements in six months is
11:23 am
indicative of the importance that you are united states places upon this relationship —— that the united states. a number of economic areas of interest and i look forward to discussing these today, the threats to all of us and our common response to all of us and our common response to that and also opportunities that exist amongst all of us to strengthen this relationship. parents must intervene to stop their children overusing social media and consuming time online "like junk food", the children's commissioner has said. in an interview with the observer, anne longfield criticised the ways social media giants use to draw children into spending more time. she said parents should be proactive in stopping their children from bingeing on the internet in the summer holidays. we are talking about children as young as eight, nine, ten here. so whoever is looking after them will be part of that
11:24 am
parenting agreement, if you like, with the parents. what we're talking about is talking to children for the long term about how they spend their time online. just as we want children to know that it is great to have pizza, it's great to have fast food, but we don't need it all the time — that is exactly the same message with the five a day, from being online that i'm talking about today. so really it is about understanding what being online is. now, for children who have grown up in the digital age, they think the digital age is just normal. it is just the way we are. but we know the internet is very addictive, we know it targets children, and we know that children particularly find it very difficult to get off online. so this is about helping parents have that conversation. smart vehicles which are connected to the internet can make life easierfor drivers,
11:25 am
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. cars can do far more for drivers now than ever before. they can park themselves. they can even drive themselves. but all that technology also makes them vulnerable to cyber 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. maybe 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, from turning the steering wheel
11:26 am
to putting the brakes on so this isn't a new problem but perhaps more of a new focus on another problem. although it's not publishing any new legislation nor has it carried out any specific research into the scale if any of 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. let's check on the weather. it isa it is a mixed bag this weekend, the best of the ryan brierley weather is in the south—east, but the opposite in the south—east, but the opposite in the north west, that is where the rain will be —— the best of the dry
11:27 am
and bright weather. the rain has been across northern ireland, it is moving from there to scotland and western england and the west of wales, behind that, scattered showers, and it stays fine and dry across the south east with increasingly hazy sunshine, 22 is pleasa nt increasingly hazy sunshine, 22 is pleasant enough. through the evening, is >> studio: showers across scotland, the band of rain over northern england. into monday, we have a zone of damp weather through north england and the midlands and down to the south west, sunny spells to the north that and largely dry and relatively warm in the south—eastern corner. hello, this is bbc news. the headlines at 11.30am: american sprinter, justin gatlin, has defended his right to compete — despite two drugs bans —
11:28 am
after being booed when he defeated usain bolt at the world athletics championships. president trump welcomes china and russia's backing for new un sanctions against north korea. the us ambassador said it was "the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation". a review into the cost of energy is dismissed as "cold comfort" by consumer groups, who say households are already paying too much. lib dem leader, sir vince cable, criticises elderly brexit supporters for — in his words — "comprehensively shafting" young people in the uk. now on bbc news, dateline london. hello and welcome to dateline london.
11:29 am
i'm jane hill. this week, we're discussing ireland's growing fears about the brexit negotiations. what should the world do about venezuela and north korea? and is the duke of edinburgh setting the tone for us all by not retiring until the age of 96? my guests, not quite 96, any of us. brian o'connell, the irish writer and broadcaster. the algerian journalist, nabila ramdani, and michael goldfarb. and david aaronovitch.
11:30 am
a very warm welcome to all of you. so the brexit negotiations are on hold for the summer holidays. no more talks for the next few weeks. that hasn't stopped the new irish prime minister from making his opinions known. he made a speech this week, calling for unique solutions to preserve the relationship between the uk and the eu after britain leaves. brian, you're not long back from dublin. just how worried is the administration? it is a distinct change of tone from enda kenny's time. leo varadker has decided, probably correctly, to distance himself from the uk. enda kenny, at the beginning of when the referendum was held, enda kenny has said to the other eu members, "we are very close to britain, we can help britain through this."
