7:39 pm
poor run of form, windsor park was on full boys for the game against bosnia. and the greener whites responded immediately and should have had a penalty and opening minutes. bosnia was rattled and the timing of the challenges were in question. all pressure with the home side and the only thing missing was the finish. but with international football, if you cannot take your opportunities, chances are that your opponents will. elvis terigi shook up opponents will. elvis terigi shook up the tie after capitalising on a defensive mix—up. there was still a fire in northern ireland with a spark of hope of a late comeback. in the end it was not meant to be and northern ireland will want to bounce back in tuesday's friendly against israel. later tonight serena williams

and european gold medals. it was remarkably emotional the final round. i have been ignoring the fact that this is going to be the last one i think all day. i was trying to enjoy it and then it hit me like a tonne of bricks. it was the final time i was ever going to run down as a professional long jumper. it was an incredible sendoff, i am not going to live. ——iam —— i am not going to lie. probably one of the most memorable for me, the way the crowd got behind me was wonderful. over in the czech republic, team europe were up against africa, the americas and asia—pacific in the iaaf continental cup, a meet that happens every four years. in the 100m, dina asher—smith finished second behind ivory coast's marie—jos e ta lou in a time of 11.16 seconds. but it was a close race, with just two hundredths of a second between the pair. britain's modern pentathletes failed to win a medal at the rio 0lympics and were considered by many to be somewhat lucky to retain over

the first couple days of the new working week. a bit of rain in places on and further south and further south there will be spells of sunshine and some southern areas might get up into the low 20s for a time at least. plenty of twists and turns ahead in our weather. this is bbc news. the headlines at eight: aftera pairof labourmps suffer no—confidence votes in their own constituencies, chuka umunna issues a stark warning to the party's leadership not to hound moderates out of the party. my message to our leadership is clear — it is within your power to stop this, so call off the dogs. people on low—pay wages, below what they were in 2008. they're the issues we're dealing with, not internal disputes that he's trying to invent, or referring to are party members as dogs. unacceptable.
