no sweat. natalie pirks, bbc news, wimbledon. couple of other things to mention, and there was disappointment though for britain's harriet dart. she was beaten by the world number one ashleigh barty on centre court. dart said it was a learning curve. and trouble could be looming for the italian fabio fognini. the world number ten has apologised after being heard to say that he wanted a bomb to explode on wimbledon during his defeat to the american tennys sandgren. phil neville described england's third place playoff at the world cup as nonsense. and the players were pretty crestfallen afterwards too. they lost to sweden in nice after going 2—0 down in the first 22 minutes. sofia jakobsson getting the second. england rallied later in the first half and got a goal thanks to fran kirby. and their comeback would have been complete were it not for another intervention from the var. just like in the semi final against the usa.
ellen white thought she'd scored an equaliser. but replays showed she'd handled the ball in the build up. it finished 2—1. i just think maybe there was a carry on from the semifinal and emotion. and the two goals, actually, probably sparked us into a bit of life. after that, i don't think i've seen us play better after that, after that first 20 minutes. i thought the courage to keep going forward, the energy at the end, both teams were on their knees, to be fair. they gave everything. we gave it our best shot, we fell short. and we've just got to make sure next time we're better. so while england's tournament is now over, one of the usa and the netherlands will win the trophy this afternoon. they meet in lyon with the defending champions very much the favourites.
they only qualified via a play—off, but despite not bringing their best football to the tournament, they are on the verge of a first world title. they know they are up against formidable opponents, they will be the underdogs. the usa have won the world cup three times, olympic gold four times, world cup three times, olympic gold fourtimes, a team world cup three times, olympic gold four times, a team seemingly built to win. their star forward four times, a team seemingly built to win. their starforward on four times, a team seemingly built to win. their star forward on and off the pitch has been megan rapinoe. she scored five goals and isa rapinoe. she scored five goals and is a social activist, equal rights campaigner as well. she is expecting to be fit for the final and recover from a hamstring strain that kept her out of the england game. the netherlands star player is a former ballon d'or winner, martins, she is an injury doubt, another reason why the odds seem to be stacked against the odds seem to be stacked against the european champions. but they have belief. they won the european championship two years ago, they are a great attacking side on their day. they know they need to raise their level to knock the usa off their perch. the usa are hoping to win
the competition for a fourth time, while the netherlands haven't before. you can watch it on bbc one... kick off in lyon is at 4pm lionel messi has been sent off for only the second time in his career. the first was on his international debut. and last night he was also shown a red card playing for argentina in their third place playoff at the copa america. this was in the first half of the game against chile. and a confrontation with gary medel. they were both sent off although it looked like one was doing more pushing than the other. they even checked it via the var. and still messi was sent off. and afterwards he claimed argentina were the victims of corruption england are going to play australia in the semi—finals of the cricket world cup — that's after two positions changed following the final round of games in the group stage. australia lost to south africa by ten runs at old trafford. that means that australia finished second in the final standings and therefore play third—placed england at edgbaston on thursday in a match the aussie captain aaron finch says will be a blockbuster. india meanwhile will play new zealand at old trafford on tuesday after they thrashed sri lanka to finish
top of the table. rohit sharma became the first man to score five centuries in a world cup, as india won by seven wickets. there was an eventful start to geraint thomas‘ defence of his tour de france title in belgium. the briton collided with barriers on the right side of the road a mile from the end of the opening stage in brussels. he was able to get to the finish where he said he was fine. mike teunissen beat peter sagan in a photo finish to become the first dutchman for 30 years to claim the leader's yellow jersey. i'm fine, i was going pretty slow by the time i hit them and just toppled over. i gave myself enough space and avoid the actual crash. just with the barriers, nowhere to go. just one of those things. the main thing is that it didn't do any damage. it just sort of... yeah, the bike took the hit and i toppled over.
great britain will compete for a bronze medal today at the first women's eurobasket championship. that's after they were beaten by france in the semi final in belgrade yesterday. great britain did have an early 4 point led — but the french proved too strong. britain will play either serbia or spain in the third place play off. catalans dragons have ended a run of five defeats in the super league — thanks to a great performance from jodie broughton. he scored a hat—trick to help them thrash wakefield 44—10. tony gigot also scored twice for the home side who move up to fifth. wakefield have now lost six of their past seven matches. elsewhere warrington beat the london broncos. and there's live sport going on right now... this is the world series triathalon taking place in hamburg in germany. britain has a team taking part in the mixed relay — jonathan brownlee and jess learmonth part of that team. they're down in tenth, france currently leading. you can watch it live right now via the bbc sport website and app. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, now it's time for the papers.
hello and welcome to our sunday morning paper review. with me are sian griffiths, education editor at the sunday times and the journalist and author shyama perera. lovely to have you here. you will notice there is a bright light shining on the desk. i have equipped oui’ shining on the desk. i have equipped our guests with my phone. we are struggling to see the font. the sunday telegraph carries an interview with borisjohnson in which he warns he's "not bluffing" about delivering a no—deal brexit on the 31st of october. the sunday express insists post—brexit trade deals, around the world will be ready to go — under boris johnson. according to the sunday times, jeremy corbyn has been plunged into a fresh crisis after his closest allies turned on him, insisting that he sack his top aides. the observer claims that the home office has a secret plan to use homelessness charities,
to help deport non—uk rough sleepers. the mail on sunday claims it's seen memos from britain's ambassador to washington, in which he describes president trump as "inept" and "incompetent". the sunday mirror pictures the world's first face view of the royal baby archie at his christening yesterday. so a varied set of front pages — let's see what our reviewers make of it all. the mail on sunday, our man in the us says trump is inept, a leaked secret cable. saying things a lot of people might have thought, but when it is from a diplomat, it seems to be the more startling? absolutely. this is a very good story in the mail on sunday. as you say, leaked secret memos from oui’ man mail on sunday. as you say, leaked secret memos from our man in washington. this is what diplomats are supposed to do, they are supposed to send memos back to numberio, to supposed to send memos back to number 10, to the covenant about what is going on in the country.
these memos are not supposed to be licked. they are an unbelievably colourful language, rather undiplomatic. they say things like the white house is uniquely dysfunctional, the president's career could ended this disgrace. he complains donald trump to arnold schwarzenegger, the cyborg always coming back from disaster, never succumbs to scandal. incredibly bad timing. we've just succumbs to scandal. incredibly bad timing. we'vejust had succumbs to scandal. incredibly bad timing. we've just had the state visit, with donald trump, and we are hoping we are going to get some wonderful free hoping we are going to get some wonderfulfree trade deal hoping we are going to get some wonderful free trade deal if we do leave the eu without a deal. so, it is all incredibly embarrassing. the question has to be, he on earth lea ked question has to be, he on earth leaked these documents and why? that is the question, really. why? there can't be anything in these documents that anyone of us are surprised by. if you had said anything different, we would have been saying why is kim darroch, our man in washington, com pletely darroch, our man in washington, completely blinkered and doesn't know what is going on? quite
honestly, a 14—year—old reading the newspapers regularly could give you this thumbnail portrait of the president and his current administration. i think the story is simply that it has been leaked, because what has been said here surely cannot surprise us, however colourful or accurate some might say the language. i don't see the foreign office denying the authenticity of it? they must be so pleased to be shown to be in the right place, the right time, and not toadying. they could probably say, i could really elicit this deal with mr trump. there is none of this nonsense. just help! that is what it says. do you think something is in it, that it if it had come from a journalist reporting it, you know what journalists are like, but this is a diplomat. what is interesting is that it shows the diplomat behind the scenes, and talking with members of the administration, has not come up of the administration, has not come up witha of the administration, has not come up with a different reading of what
is happening. so actually it is probably terrifying if you are sitting in whitehall today, just thinking about this. it is bonkers. but alarming as well, because we know donald trump is very thin—skinned, we have a special relationship with america and we hope we are going to get some good free trade deals if we do leave the eu. this, you know, is the hugely embarrassing thing that donald trump could turn around and say, you know, be really angry about it, and it could scupper any trade deal. he will do a horrible tweet about kim darroch and say this man is a twit, oi’ darroch and say this man is a twit, or whatever, oh i knew him when he was receiving treatment for this, or something like that. he willjust be rude about him. he always shoots the messenger. it is 4.30 in america, so we'll have to wait. he used to treat in the middle of the night, when he first started. lets look at the sunday times and what is happening
in the labour party. civil war rips apart captive corbyn‘s team. this is diane abbott and john mcdonnell turning on him, according to the paper? which makes you feel that things are... of course, emily thornberry turned after the european elections. she said we need to change. so people are starting, finally, to stop sitting there looking at him adoringly and start to question the decisions he is making. this is yet again an attack on seamus milne, and carry whatever. karie murphy. it comes in the wake of the panorama programme, we know what is going to be in it, roughly, on wednesday, the panorama programme has apparently got up to eight members of the labour party who have signed an nda, nondisclosure, but have broken ranks to talk about their fears have broken ranks to talk about
theirfears for it have broken ranks to talk about their fears for it is happening. allegations of anti—semitism and bullying. allegations of not knowing what the hell the public wants. john mcdonnell saying that we need to position ourselves as a remain party now, because there have been so many splits in the labour party. they're have in the conservative party as well, but the opposition seems to be no different. exactly, it is warfare in both parties, both the conservatives and in labour. and this demand within the labour party that we do have a referendum, that they do back a referendum, but there are so much going on. i think the panorama in particular is going to focus on the allegations of anti—semitism which are tearing the party apart. the otherjeremy corbyn story, i'm not sure what i make of this, pages eight... great story! eight and nine. this, pages eight... great story! eightand nine. as this, pages eight... great story! eight and nine. as labour slips to fourth in the polls, corbyn takes
the morning off to spend the morning with a man who claims he is rihanna's fitness trainer. hats off to them, really. it's more than i manage in the morning. come on, martin! if this was his regular saturday morning, being in the park with his wife, who we rarely see, doing exercises with rhianna's trainer. we would have seen these photographs three years ago. it is a com plete photographs three years ago. it is a complete set up to meet the allegations he is becoming frail. here he is, doing a giant rubber band to beef up those legs, it says. i wonder how one unbeefs legs, for those with the other end of the problem. he took umbrage at a story about a week ago that he might have had a stroke, that he was too frail to lead the labour party. this absolutely does look like some
clever pr wheeze dreamt up by labour to put him on some better... and rhianna's trainer, it is like getting mr motivator to work with margaret thatcher. but it's quite a sympathetic tone. hats off to him, maybe they are thinking that they couldn't do that. it says not many 70—year—olds could do to my collapse of the park. i don't know about that. maybe that was just of the park. i don't know about that. maybe that wasjust in of the park. i don't know about that. maybe that was just in a of the park. i don't know about that. maybe that wasjust in a press release they were given. they mention the fact he is wearing a festival t—shirt. mention the fact he is wearing a festival t-shirt. he has mention the fact he is wearing a festivalt-shirt. he has been on his bicycle as well. he has been photographed cycling through london. let's look at the sun on sunday. archie is a red ring for dad. —— read —— a red ringer. a bit of
consternation that was quite a private baptism ? consternation that was quite a private baptism? indeed. they have only released two photos, and one is only released two photos, and one is on most of the front pages today. this is an absolutely beautiful photo. he looks like an adorable baby, in his mother's arms. as you say, there has been a lot of consternation about the fact that the couple don't want to release the names of the godparents, they had a very small private ceremony, christening ceremony yesterday at windsor castle. there has been a bit ofa windsor castle. there has been a bit of a backlash with people saying they take taxpayer money, for instance, the cottage, their home, and they should make their private occasions more open to the public, more open to the press, but i actually have a lot of sympathy for the couple trying to keep archie out. i have no sympathy for the couple. it is not that they get the public schilling. whether or not you
choose, if you have been living your life in the public eye, that is that, and that is actually his destiny, even if it is not hers. i think it's interesting. we all wanted to look at this baby. let's mention the elephant in the room, we wondered what colour it was, what it would look like i speak as the mother of mixed race children. i'm delighted to say it is white is white. when mine were born, they we re white. when mine were born, they were white as white people would say, are you the nanny? you know. one of them was blue—eyed, so that made it even more, are you the nanny? and they only actually took colour when both of them got to about 11 or 12, colour when both of them got to about 11 or12, and colour when both of them got to about 11 or 12, and suddenly the melatonin in their skin released. and they went from being whiter than white, whiter than either of you, to being a kind of italian, arabic, brazilian look. you know, the blue—eyed one really kind of has to consta ntly blue—eyed one really kind of has to constantly state her otherness. the
other one is having to state her sameness. because they are different markers of what makes you different. and that is quite interesting. i think it successive polls, or what young people find attractive, mixed—race is the biggest marker of attractiveness. for me, this baby is notjust attractiveness. for me, this baby is not just about diversity or bringing together different types of people, this baby should be a marker of what the future is going to look like. and it's very important that... i say this as a person of colour, as opposed to a white person, it's important to me, actually, to know what this baby looks like, as well as to everybody else. what this baby looks like, as well as to everybody elselj what this baby looks like, as well as to everybody else. i had a very nice opposite experience to you. i was with a colleague's children, they are mixed—race girls, dark eyes, dark hair, dark skin, nothing like me, somebody said, that your girls. these days, it would not be
unusual. i thought that was lovely. even five or ten years later, it is absolutely, even when my girls were at school, mixed—race was the largest racial group. that was quite interesting. we should say that the sun on sunday speculating as to whether archie has red hair. already! nice dark eyes. lets look at the observer. a secret plan to use charities to help deport rough sleepers. what is the plan? this is a story that the home office has drawn upa a story that the home office has drawn up a programme and they are going to ask outreach workers who go on the streets to help rough sleepers to report back to them and tell them whether some of the rough sleepers are illegal immigrants, so they can be deported. what is alarming about the story is that the charities do not want outreach workers to become spies for the home office. they don't want them to
become surrogate border guards. this is just another example of something we are seeing across the public services. so we are getting teachers in schools that are expected to report back on whether children, say, are saying alarming things that might reveal terrorism at home, when children who have been stabbed going to hospitals, nurses and doctors are asked to feedback to the police whether they think those children are in gangs, and then they are put on the gangs matrix. so this is using public servants and charitable workers for a purpose they really are very uncomfortable about. tension between what is safeguarding and what is betraying trust, isn't it? were children are concerned, maybe it is a level of safeguarding. you want an intervention that will change the course of what they are doing. with rough sleepers, it is much harder tojustify doing. with rough sleepers, it is much harder to justify it, doing. with rough sleepers, it is much harder tojustify it, i think. i think it is a good idea to have numbers, i think it's a good idea to know all of this, have all of this information, but i don't think it is
thejob of information, but i don't think it is the job of charities to be supplying it. they should be neutral and they should not be seen as part of authority. unless, of course, the authorities wish to finance them. if they wish to finance charities for they wish to finance charities for the homeless, they can have the data thatis the homeless, they can have the data that is collected. i'm not bluffing or no deal, says boris. did anybody think he was? he may not be bluffing, he believes he is not bluffing. but do the rest of us believe what he says? this is another load of guff from boris. parliament has had more than once it does not want a no—deal brexit. parliament has had more than once it does not want a no-deal brexit. is making sure that we do not have a no—deal brexit, that parliament
cannot be suspended and all the rest of it. this is a long running narrative that unless we insist that we are prepared to have a no—deal brexit, the eu will not buckle, because the eu doesn't think that we are going to go right up to the wire and actually do this thing. it is this idea that they have to see the whites of our eyes and then they will give us a new agreement, because they don't want no—deal. it is more of the same rhetoric. again, he is saying, i am is more of the same rhetoric. again, he is saying, lam not is more of the same rhetoric. again, he is saying, i am not bluffing about delivering a no—deal brexit on october to 315t. we know that the eu are not going to come up with another agreement. they have been consistent about that. jeremy hunt has been saying similar things, you don't show your hand when you are trying to go into negotiations. absolutely. it is interesting, coming back to boris, everybody is saying here so far ahead in all of the poles of who is going to get voted in. the one thing that one really does enjoy about him is his
use of language. he does say, you know, theresa may has been presiding over a diet of misery, and a computer says no attitude in government. i thought of the old lady they used to feature in little britain, she would be in the post office queue, and something would go wrong with her works. i was wondering which one boris would be out of the carer or demand in a wheelchair? the one in the wheelchair, which i suspect, or the care? there has been a of that. that is so funny. he will get up when nobody is looking under run around and come back in. very old-fashioned english he uses. you've got to show more gumption about this. lets move on to page three of the sunday times. no open top bus for you, my lioness you lost. there was an
advertising campaign for a sports brand that says you don't win silver, you lose gold. it is in that vein. i think it is a great message. obviously the team agree with him. i am sure he would not say it otherwise. it is a reminder that we are celebrating the fact women football, that's great. but we don't cla p football, that's great. but we don't clap them when they fail, they have to do what any football team does, which is win. if you don't win, you don't get the plaudits. we are delighted you are women and you have really delivered the games that we feel proud of, i saw the england football tea m feel proud of, i saw the england football team when we watched them play japan, and they football team when we watched them playjapan, and they won, as i recall. you know, the whole point of sport is to win. and they didn't even come third. they lost against sweden in the play—offs. but they
have had massive audiences. they have had massive audiences. they have really put women's football on the stage. even my son. props to the bbc for having done that, we wouldn't have seen that if somebody hadn't made the decision it was important. is the tournament going to be much bigger next time with more teams taking part? we have young men talking about and watching women's football for the first time ever. it was always a bit of a joke for them. ever. it was always a bit of a joke forthem. i ever. it was always a bit of a joke for them. i think the story underneath it is interesting, martina navratilova saying women should play five sets at wimbledon. it's all about wanting to be paid the same as the men. bursting with pride, the main picture story in the independent, 1.5 million people celebrating on the streets of london. everybody musters outside
the bbc building, even if you are just coming to work, you can't help but get caught up in it. fantastic, 1.5 million people, the biggest they have had. the independent is the only newspaper to have it on the front page. everybody else has it tucked away inside, with small photographs. and i think in the current climate, where we are seeing young girls getting attacked on buses because they will not kiss for the delectation of men travelling on the delectation of men travelling on the same bus with them, where there are homophobic attacks all the time, where children are being refused education to do with different types of family, i think it is so important. pride should have been on everybody‘s front page alongside that baby today. everybody had the baby, and not pride, but i agree. in birmingham, where you have those protests outside schools, kids are being taught that some families have two dads or mums, it is a great celebration. there is more this
evening at 10.30 and 11.30, and we will look ahead to tomorrow's front pages. all of the front pages of the papers are online come on the bbc news website, seven days a week. if you missed the programme, you can watch it later on the bbc iplayer. good to see you. strange time of day for me. coming up next, the weather. a lot of fine weather to come across the uk for the remainder of today. always a few exceptions to the rule. there will be a little more cloud across scotland, part of the north—east of england, may be the odd sharper shower here, too. an improving picture to the south, where the remnants of a weather front brought us a grey and wet
start. the south—east, moving into sunshine for the afternoon. thickening cloud through the second pa rt thickening cloud through the second part of the day for the south—west of england and for south wales. a nagging northerly breeze feeding the ploughed into northern scotland and north sea coasts. 40 degrees in aberdeen, a chilly 15 in newcastle. showers for northern scotland and the pennines. maybe the odd sharper one, may be drifting into lincolnshire and norfolk as we move through the evening. overnight, a fine story, however, and with clear skies across government it could actually turn pretty chilly in some of the glans to the north. loads of two or three degrees. low enough for a grass frost. monday dawn is fine and clearfor a grass frost. monday dawn is fine and clear for the majority, a grass frost. monday dawn is fine and clearfor the majority, and there will be plenty of sunshine around through the day. more widespread, if anything, than today. but come the afternoon, we will see cloud thickening for northern ireland, a warm front moving in and then some rain by the evening. temperatures for monday, well, average values, basically. we are
looking at 16 in aberdeen, warm in newcastle, up to 17. 21 or 22 to the south. we should have a fine day for wimbledon on monday, with some pleasa nt wimbledon on monday, with some pleasant spells of sunshine. courtside should feel pretty co mforta ble courtside should feel pretty comfortable as 20 or 21 degrees. later in the increasing chance of seeing some disruption to play. tuesday, i think any rain will stay to the north as this front are just tips in. high pressure hangs on in there to the south. grey prospects for northern ireland with some rain and then the rain moving into scotla nd and then the rain moving into scotland and northern england. to the south, the best of any brightness, perhaps 23 degrees. further north, we are looking at the mid—teens. perhaps heavier rain for a time across the central belt of scotland. on to the outlook. through the middle of the week, quite u nsettled the middle of the week, quite unsettled across the northern half of the uk, and then friday, fairly widespread showers are possible with some real hunting is in the mix. that, as i said, could bring some disruption to wimbledon.
this is bbc news, i'm martine croxall. the headlines at ten: leaked emails from the british ambassador to washington describe president trump's administration as "in ' ' and "incompetent". iran says it has breached another condition of its 2015 international nuclear agreement. protesters gather in hong kong for another big rally against china's increasing control over the territory. ministers are to spend three million pounds on a service to transport medication, in the event of a no—deal brexit at the end of october. greece is going to the polls to elect a new parliament, with opinion polls suggesting defeat for the left—wing government. a dream start for the pairing of andy murray and serena williams in the mixed doubles — as they delight wimbledon's centre court crowd with a straight sets victory.
