he said just to relax and have fun, and look around and see all the people having fun, and try and smile, and just have a good time with it. that's — that's why you're there, and i definitely felt like that today. i felt at ease, and having his words in my head coming down the stretch and being able to close like that, it's a lot of good feelings. 0nto cycling, where the year's first grand tour, the giro d'italia, came to an end on sunday. at the end of three weeks and over 3,500 km of riding, ecuador‘s richard carapaz reigned supreme, creating history, as claire thornton reports. with the lead of almost two minutes going into the 17 kilometre stage, 26—year—old richard cara paz co mforta bly 26—year—old richard cara paz comfortably held off his main general classification challenges to just become the second south american to claim the title. the ecuadorian, who was fourth on his giro debut last year, was

unflappable on the circuit, that was used in the 1999 and 2004 world championships. american chad hagel w011 championships. american chad hagel won the stage, while the spanish contender was replaced on the podium. behind the home favourite nibali. after taking the pink race leader's jersey following the 14th stage, carapaz leader's jersey following the 14th stage, cara paz rarely looked leader's jersey following the 14th stage, carapaz rarely looked like with increasing the leader's jazzy. he extended his advantage over the next three stages, and then kept pace with his general classification rivals on the final two mountain ranges which —— stages which concluded in the dolomites, to concluded in the dolomites, to conclude the tour. south africa's cricket world cup campaign has taken another early blow after they lost to bangladesh by 21 runs at the oval in london on sunday. the proteas failed to chase down what would have been a tournament—record run chase, making it back—to—back losses, as alastair ross reports. after being comprehensively out played in the opening game of the tournament, south africa had plenty tournament, south africa had plenty

to prove against bangladesh. but after winning the toss and electing to field, that's about as good as it got for them. angered as set to work straightaway, as iqbal and his partner added 64 the wicket, before this player looked like he was in the mood to register something special. when hasanjones, they neutralise the proteas‘ bowling attack, in a partnership of 142 of 141 bowls. a quickfire 46 was added as bangladesh set a world cup record chase of 331. in response, south africa started well. aidan markham put on 49 before confusion lead to the first wicket. skipper pfaff du plessis did his best to lift the ru nway plessis did his best to lift the runway at as wickets fell at regular intervals —— run rate. du plessis tried to force the issue when he missed on altogether. needing 14

i’u ns missed on altogether. needing 14 runs from the final over, it proved a bridge too far, as they got their campaign under way a bridge too far, as they got their campaign underway in a bridge too far, as they got their campaign under way in a stunning way, while south africa suffered consecutive losses. and it doesn't get any easier as they face up to india on wednesday in southampton. we played so well, especially in england. it's not easy for us. you know, conditions are not giving us the favours which we are used to at home. but again, i thought one of the best... 0ne home. but again, i thought one of the best... one of the best performances to us, and we love to play the way we played today. i'm sure that it won't be happening every day, but that is the idea. i know we would love to play better. to blame bad luck is not an option for me. you know, with the previous game and today, i think you still have to find a way to make sure that you put in performances. and we are just off in most areas. we are doing
1:52 am
some good things during games, but we are not putting it together over 80% of the time. liverpool are back home from madrid after winning the champions league, and they have been parading the trophy through the city streets. the 2—0 win against tottenham on saturday saw them become european champions for a sixth time, and our reporter azi farni was following celebrations. tens of thousands were expected, but hundreds of thousands have turned up. they are on the streets here, they are on roofs, balconies, bus stops, scaffolding, all to catch a glimpse of their champions league heroes. it's been a long time since this city has been able to celebrate like this, since the 2005 champions league parade and the 2006 fa cup parade. there has been a long period of hope and expectation. but that has now been fulfilled byjurgen klopp and this side. now, ask any of the fans down here at the beginning

of the season and they would have told you that it is a different trophy that they were hoping to see paraded here, that all elusive premier league trophy. they have waited 29 years for a league title. but go and ask them now and they will tell you that there is a real belief that this team, champions of europe, can bring more trophies, more parades like this, and perhaps that one that they've been waiting so that one that they've been waiting so long for, in the not—too—distant future. with the women's world cup set to start on friday, two further warm—up matches were played on sunday. japan and spain played out a 1—1 draw in the early game, while isabell herlovsen scored a hat—trick for norway as they beat south africa 7—2 in the late kick—off. anthonyjoshua's promoter says he will only be thinking about regaining his world heavyweight titles, after he was stopped by andy ruinr on saturday in new york. eddie hearn has told the bbc he is confident the fans will get behind his fighter, as he looks forward to a rematch later this year. imean, the i mean, the plan for his next fight
1:54 am
has always been november— december, when i anticipate this rematch to happen. we have to exercise that, and we will do. every day that passes 110w, and we will do. every day that passes now, he will want this fight more and more. the only thing on his mind is to become heavyweight champion of the world again. you know, i hope the people get behind him, because he is a very good guy, has dedicated his life to the sport, and he will come again. and now the next chapter is, can he returned, and can he retain his belt, in what will be a much anticipated rematch? ducati rider danilo petrucci picked up his first ever motogp win in his home race, as he clinched the italian grand prix in mugello. the 28—year—old edged out championship leader marc marquez, who was aboard his honda, by less than half a second to take the win, with fellow ducati rider andrea dovizioso taking third. the victory was petrucci's first in 123 races, and puts him fifth in the overall standings. just enough time to let you know in the nba toronto lead 32—28 in game two of the nba finals, midway

through the second quarter. the ra ptors a through the second quarter. the raptors a 1—0 up in that best—of—7 series at present. you can get all the latest sports news at our website. that is but, from me and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. hello. sunday was a real mixed bag of weather right across the british isles. for some, it was rain and puddles. elsewhere, particularly in weybourne, in norfolk, 28.8 celsius was recorded, making it the hottest day of the year so far. and, as ever, our weather watchers were right on the spot. now, that weather front eventually has dragged what was left of the rain into the near continent and up into scandinavia, leaving behind the big area of low pressure which will dominate scotland's weather for the next day or two. a lot of isobars on that chart, as well, so some pretty gusty conditions there. now, that weather front will have had the effect of dragging heat away from the british isles,
1:56 am
shovelling it into the continent, and our air will be coming from the atlantic, so a fresher feel to start the new day on monday. and showers right from the word go, gusty showers at that, with the odd rumble of thunder in there, i don't doubt. and that's going to be the case for northern and western parts of scotland, northern ireland too. further south across england and wales, a dry enough day, but a speckling of afternoon showers running along on the breeze from wales and the south—west up towards the midlands and east anglia. from monday into tuesday, as the low pressure centre drifts just a little bit further north away from scotland, isobars opening out, so we'll bring in this little secondary low pressure in towards the south—western approaches, spreading the threat of showery bursts of rain through the south—west, wales, the western midlands, eventually to northern ireland, northern parts of england, central and southern parts of scotland, too. and it's only really the far south—east and maybe the north of scotland that during the daylight hours escapes the heaviest of the rainfall. i think we'll complete the journey of that weather front towards the north of scotland overnight from tuesday into wednesday. and then, if we've got the sums
1:57 am
right, we'll be looking down towards the near continent, because it could well be that some really moist, muggy air eventually drags the threat of some heavy, thundery downpours into the south—eastern quarter of the british isles. elsewhere, it's a decent enough day, showers in the south—west perhaps, and still the remnants of that front. a bit of bother across northern scotland. but in between, it's a pleasant enough day. then through the evening and overnight again, as i say, there's some doubt about this, it could well be that we drag meaningful rain through parts of the midlands up across eastern england. the bulk of it, i think, will be found out in the north sea. but there's just the chance that it could come a little further west. it's a neat call, as you can see. thursday could be a wet day across the eastern half of the british isles, the best of the sunshine, i would have thought, for northern ireland and perhaps the north of scotland.
