in myself. ahead of england's match against argentina in tokyo, eddiejones says his side know what they've got to do — they've just got to do it. and the sports governing body isn't happy about it but the international swimming league is due to start with a host of olympians in the new team—based competition. also coming up in the programme: we hear from manchester city striker ellen white on the injury that kept her out of the first manchester women's derby plus talking italian — aaron ramsey speaks exclusively to the bbc about his move to juventus and... his favourite food. my my favourite food is pizza.
hello and welcome to sportsday, i'mjane dougall. there's been injuries and heartbreaking failure for katarina johnson—thompson, but last night kjt proved that she had fought and overcome her personal demons to go on and win heptathlon gold at the world championships in doha. in an emotional interview the new world champion said it had in the heptathlon, every stride, everyjump in the heptathlon, every stride, every jump has to in the heptathlon, every stride, everyjump has to all come together. for katarina johnson—thompson, this was finally the year. three times before in full glare she had fallen short. last attempt. no. that is a massive disappointment. you only become a great athlete through trials and tribulations. but at these world championships, there was a new kind of focus. in a shot but,
she threw two feet further than she had ever done before. it was one of four events this week where she made a lifetime best. by the javelin, she sought way clear. she had the points in the smile that told the field this year was hers. this time in the spotlight, there was onlyjoy. katarina johnson—thompson is going to finish off the best heptathlon of her life with a victory in the 800 metres. she is the gold medallist. and phil kay jt, metres. she is the gold medallist. and phil kayjt, this was also validation. three years ago, she moved her training base to france to end the heartache but in the next ten months, i attended japan at next yea r‘s ten months, i attended japan at next year's olympics, ten months, i attended japan at next yea r‘s olympics, old ten months, i attended japan at next year's olympics, old rivalries intensive five. in this athletics all—round event, there is always room to improve. and after the
celebrations, kay jt will keep on running. watching at the stadium last night in doha was ade adedoyn. ade, such a fantastic moment for kjt. she'll be presented with her medal later. there's been criticism of the atmopshere at the stadium but what was it like last night? it wasn't full but it was a really good atmosphere and they saw a really good habitat filling competition. —— a really good heptathlon competition. kjt has seen a great year. this is an athlete who at one stage in her career question whether she was good enough to compete at any level. she killed that imposter syndrome. people also doubted whether she had the mental strength to do it after, as you had in the packaging regime, in 2015, she had a couple of files and some people wondered whether she had what it takes to compete at the very
best. she has showed she is a true champion, she had four personal bests, in the shot putt, high hurdles, javelin, and in the 800 metres, she cemented her place as the best heptathlete in the world. we caught up with her today and she had going into than in the year, she won't become pleasant as she attem pts won't become pleasant as she atte m pts to won't become pleasant as she attempts to become the first heptathlete to win the world title and the olympics in consecutive yea rs. and the olympics in consecutive years. i'm not taking anything for granted. ijust years. i'm not taking anything for granted. i just know years. i'm not taking anything for granted. ijust know how sport can go andl granted. ijust know how sport can go and i feel like my competitors have been in a situation of placing second, placing fifth, and athletes in those positions are very hungry, so in those positions are very hungry, sol in those positions are very hungry, so ijust in those positions are very hungry, so i just want in those positions are very hungry, so ijust want to continue to be the same, trying the same, act like, you know, this didn't happen, almost, when i go back to france. but for i'iow when i go back to france. but for now i am going to enjoy the moment. and perhaps not on the same scale but is there any other british
interest in the events tonight? yes, we've already had a semifinals for the 1500 metres and it has been good for britain. in the first semifinal, we had a man going up against the olympic champion for london 2012. nick gallie performed really well. he was heavily bunched going into the last hundred metres but he positioned himself well to qualify for the final. he wasn't the only one to get through. we had josh kerr and jake white meant as well. it was a tactical race. they made their way through. whiteman had to go through as a fastest qualifier but britain have three athletes in that race. the manta because timothy cherry. there are 20,000 people here tonight, and that is partly because they could be when the high jump at
this level. a strong contender for a gold medal downed all around me you've got qatari in flowing white robes, the royal family you've got qatari in flowing white robes, the royalfamily are here, and it has created a really good atmosphere. great to hear the stands are filling up into her. —— in doha. england have never lost against argentina in the rugby world cup, but eddiejones says they'll have to be brutal if they're to beat them again tomorrow. england are top of their pool going into the game in tokyo, with two bonus—point wins, but their match against argentina will undoubtedly be tougher. captain alan farrell once again sta rts captain alan farrell once again starts at centre with george forward at fly half. jo marla keeps his place in the front row. another

where he was without him so an emotional day for eddie jones. he'll 110w emotional day for eddie jones. he'll now hope is england team can rise to their biggest challenge this world cup so faragainst their biggest challenge this world cup so far against argentina here in tokyo on saturday. and there's live commentary of england against argentina on bbc radio 5 live. coverage is from 8am, the match gets underway at 9. there was one match in the tournament today and it was a convincing win for south africa, beating italy by 49 points to 3 to take a huge step towards the quarter—finals. they ran in seven tries — cheslin colby getting two of them. that ensured a bonus point for south africa. italy were reduced to 1a men for most of the second half after andrea lovotti was sent off for a dangerous tackle, dropping duane vermuelen on his head. the win took south africa above italy to the top of their pool and the italians' hopes of progressing now rest on beating new zealand for the first time. brendan rogers will return to his old club
when leicester visit anfield in the premier league tomorrow. liverpool are unbeaten in the league, but rogers has been praised for leicesters form so far this season, they're currently third in the table. their manager says he has fond memories of his time at liverpool and the experience helped developed his skills. i'm really looking forward to going back. i had a great privilege of managing one of the iconic clubs in the world and so much learning took place for me at liverpool. yes, like isaid,| place for me at liverpool. yes, like isaid, i haven't place for me at liverpool. yes, like i said, i haven't been back since i left as manager so i'm looking forward to seeing, you know, good friends there and i'm obviously looking forward to the same. once my time has finished there, there was no bitterness there, i was really so happy for the opportunity and it gave me great strength and it gave me an edge to move forward in my management career which is what i
needed. updates of that match will be on five live. aaron ramsey recent move tojuventus was one that many arsenal fans weren't happy about but the wales midfielder has settled into life in italy. and he says that walking into his new club wasn't as intimidating as when he started at arsenal all those years ago as a 17—year—old. it isa it is a different sort of thing where i have to prove myself to my new team—mates now and the new staff, the new fans, all of that, so it is going through that side of it more now. i know i'm capable of doing it. i've been playing for a long time so it is just about showing what i can do to them. it wasn't as daunting as i was as a 17—year—old boy but, yeah, it is just going in there and showing what ican do. and you can see more of that interview on football focus tomorrow. that's bbc one at five past 12.
england women play brazil this weekend in a sold out fixture at the riverside but phil neville has had some squad problems to contend with as chelsea's fran kirby and manchester united's abbie mcmanus have both withdrawn and returned to their clubs. jo currie is in middlesbrough for us. for many of the line ss, trip back here to the north—east is a bit of a homecoming. in fact, seven of phil neville's england squad will be hoping to be picked for this friendly against brazil tomorrow and they come from this area including steph houghton. i caught up with england captain earlier, she and her tea m england captain earlier, she and her team prepare for this match which was played down the road at the riverside stadium. despite the fact that the ground will be full of friends and family, they will be no time for nostalgia. that is because england haven't won in the last four matches. something steph orton said she and the rest of the team are determined to put right and in front of what is going to be a sell—out crowd. hopefully these people that
have come and bought tickets, we've got a sell—out stadium, they can really get behind us and push us on. for us as players we are determined to put on a good performance and show what we are really about. it is going to be a tough game but i think when we play in these high—pressure environments it really does bring the best out on us. the crowd could be infora the best out on us. the crowd could be in for a treat tomorrow. england and brazil fans tomorrow will be hoping to get a glimpse of marta, widely regarded as one of the greatest women players ever to play the game. after brazil in middlesbrough tomorrow, they fly off to lisbon where they will face portugal on tuesday. good news, both matches live across the bbc tomorrow, england versus brazil, is at 1245. one of england's star strikers, ellen white, won't feature in the friendly as she's still recovering from a knee injury. the manchester city player has said she hopes to be back in an england shirt in time for their fixture against germany at wembley on the 9th of november.
she says she doesn't want to put a date on her return, but is itching to get back on the pitch. i can't wait. semi—people keep asking me and i am like, soon, soon. i don't want to ban specific date on i don't want to ban specific date on i don't want to fail and get into that. i don't want to say soon but i'm hoping soon. there wimpy game is when i have been looking at and hoping for. keeps reminding me about that one as well. it will be an incredible occasion. i missed out on the last one when a plane in germany. to be involved would be incredible and hopefully put it to bea incredible and hopefully put it to be a sell—out would be amazing for so many fans to come and support us on the back of the world cup as well. so, iwould on the back of the world cup as well. so, i would love to be involved in that. still to come on sportsday: it isa it is a new era for swimming but will the new league bring more excitement and bigger crowds?” believe we can revolutionise swimming and make it more friendly,
give usa swimming and make it more friendly, give us a bigger fan base. the new cricket format, the hundred has been launched with some controversey before a ball has even been bowled. the white—ball competition will consist of 100 balls per innings, with a change of ends after 10 balls. it starts next year and the aim is to appeal to a younger audience with the matches running throughout the school summer holidays. however, despite the eight city based teams launching men and women's squads together — there's a huge disparity in pay. earlier, i spoke to england fast bowler and manchester originals player kate cross and asked her how significant this launch was. the hundred have launched as a men's and women's team which has never been done anywhere in the world. the wins big bashjoined six years been done anywhere in the world. the wins big bash joined six years after the men started so the fact that we are starting on equal footing to them now, you know, all the protocols are the same, the kid is the same, so hopefully they will be a lot of excitement and as the
tournament builds and gains momentum, hopefully we will get some fa ns momentum, hopefully we will get some fans as well and rack people with us. fans as well and rack people with us. the other thing about it as their pay. there is a huge disparity between the men's pay because the top band for the top male players is £125,000. for the women, top band for the top male players is £125,000. forthe women, it top band for the top male players is £125,000. for the women, it is only £15,000. how do you feel about such a wide gap? there is always going to be the talk about the pay gap certainly in female sport at the minute. i think it is very easy to compare it to the men but the men have been playing professional cricket for a lot longer than the girls have. we turned professional five years ago now so i think if you look at our journey and turns five years ago now so i think if you look at ourjourney and turns of our context, it is actually a real significant improvement. like i said, it is easy to get washed away with what the men are earning but this competition is probably the most desirable in the world for women at the minute, you know, in terms of the big bash, there is quite an ipl yet for the women so this is a lot of money for the girls and we are now starting to earn
money that makes us comfortable. i think in terms of our point of view, when we look at it realistically, we don't get the same crowd that the men can generate. until we can do that, we are probably not going to be demanding £125,000 because it is unrealistic. do you think it is a missed opportunity? a brand—new tournament with both men and women together, launched as a men's and women's quad, and have they missed a trick? this could be a market i could have laid down, we abed have pay parity. it is still a great opportunity for the bells and the money we have been offered is still so far away from what we were earning even 12 months ago. you can't run before you can walk, you have to take things slowly and if you look at ourjourney, it has leapfrogged. like you look at ourjourney, it has lea pfrogged. like i you look at ourjourney, it has leapfrogged. like i said, i came out of university i did know what i was going to be and suddenly i was a professional cricketer. as a child growing up, never dreams that was an opportunity. but now you have young girls who might see it on television next year and they might think that is what i want to do and you might
be encouraging girls who might not necessarily have thought of cricket as an option as a career. let's have a quick look at some of the other stories around today. andy murray says his comeback from surgery is going better than expected, despite his impressive run at the china open coming to an end. he was beaten in the quarterfinals by world number five dominic thiem but there were encouraging signs — he took the second set to a tie—break before going out. defending motogp world champion marc marquez escaped serious injury in a dramatic crash in first practice for sunday's thai grand prix.he was taken to hospital and although he was bruised, he was given the all—clear and was back on the track within a couple of hours to take part in second practice. marquez could win his sixth world title this weekend. and rugby union's pro 1a competition continues this evening.
there is a huge match in the rugby league championship this weekend with promotion to the super league at stake. the play off final between toronto wolfpack and featherstone rovers takes place in canada.whoever wins, there will be a new team in the super league, as neither team have ever competed in it. featherstone's last major honour was the challenge cup in 1983. we've achieved something pretty special this year. they've kept building as the years go on. i didn't start with all roses and we have got better as the season has gone on and we are getting the benefits of that. it has been a cool journey, different one, and cool story. now, nfl begins it's annual series of matches in the uk this weekend with the first of four games taking place at white hart lane. the oakland raiders will face the chicago bears on sunday at a stadium that has been built with the sport very much in mind. former player and bbc nfl punditjason bell has been speaking to olly foster. this is going to feel like one of
the best stadiums that they have in the best stadiums that they have in the us. it is specifically built for the us. it is specifically built for the nfl and what is most important and amazing as the locker rooms. players spend so much time in their getting ready for the game, preparing, going over what happened at half time, so having that nfl specific locker room is key and players are going to love that. what is the perception of these london games are stateside? for the players, this is a part of football now. this is part of the national football league. remember, you have a lot of young players coming in each year. they know this is what they want to do, they want to come here and play. a lot of these kids have not been outside of the united states. this is a huge opportunity for them. teams come over here and they bond. players don't get a lot of time to spend with each other like they do when they are at university and college so they come over here, they've got plenty of time to be together and bond as a tea m time to be together and bond as a team and that helps them throughout the season.
you can watch a preview of that match at tottenham hotspur‘s stadium on the nfl show on saturday from 11.50pm. that's on bbc one and the iplayer, and there are post—match highlights on sunday from 11.45pm. a new global swimming competition gets underway this weekend. the international swimming league — the isl — will start in indianapolis in the usa. the series will feature some of the world's biggest names including katie ledecky, chad le clos and britain's adam peaty. the swimmers hope this will revitalise the sport and attract new audiences. here's bbc olympic sports reporter nick hope. in simple terms they have never been better time to be an elite swimmer. there are more events to compete in a more money to be made in any point in the sports history. the new international swimming league, the isl, will have the best players on the planet. they will be six competitions in the qualification phase, three in the usa and three in
europe. the last of those in the london olympic aquatics centre at the end of november. at that stage, the end of november. at that stage, the top four teams will qualify for a grand final which will take place in las vegas in december. swimming has never had a stage quite like that before. you know what, it has been stuck on a ladder for a long time now. i think with this new league, we can revolutionise swimming andjust make league, we can revolutionise swimming and just make it more fan friendly, give it a biggerfan base, obviously we don't want to —— i believe we can go forward. and obviously we still have the world championships which are hugely important to me and in epic games. there was quite a battle between the sports international governing body and the organisers of the isl when the idea was first mooted last year, with the threats of bands. the fears have been allayed somewhat by the range between the two organisations are something to watch as it new
event develops and grows. from an athlete's perspective, the prize money in the competition, another bonus they see for the isl is a zero tolerance policy they have towards doping. remember the podium protest at the world championships around that china swimmer because he had any other athletes who have incurred doping violations in the past will not be invited and will not be allowed to compete. those who are taking part in the isl hope its launch will mark the start of a new era for swimming launch will mark the start of a new era forswimming and professionalisation of the sport. let's ta ke professionalisation of the sport. let's take you straight to jo professionalisation of the sport. let's take you straight tojo hart where katarina johnson—thompson has been presented with her gold medal for her teflon —— for her heptathlon. this is the first time she has won an outdoor medal at this level before. she won it with a british record of 6981 points, beating the 2017 champion to her left there by 30a points,. austria
took third place. it was quite emotionalfor katarina johnson—thompson as she walked off of that stage. really, really fantastic feat for her to be presented by that. we'll take a look at some of her for personal bests at the khalifa station in doha. a high jump the khalifa station in doha. a high jump of195 the khalifa station in doha. a high jump of 195 centimetres, she took .0 two seconds off her personal best. what effectively clinch gold for her, she reduced —— she recorded another personal best by throwing her javelin to 49.3 another personal best by throwing herjavelin to 49.3 metres. she beat herjavelin to 49.3 metres. she beat her herojess herjavelin to 49.3 metres. she beat her hero jess ennis herjavelin to 49.3 metres. she beat her herojess ennis hill's record as well. a british champion world champion as well. the gold medal for katarina johnson—thompson. that is it for us. thank you forjoining us.

coast and hills, further east some clear spells and the odd bug patch here and there and temperatures will dip away, the daily across parts of scotla nd dip away, the daily across parts of scotland where we could get all the way down to freezing. but in this cool way down to freezing. but in this cool, clear zone in the east, we will have some fog patches to contend with, perhaps most especially across the north—east of england, they should tend to clear. then we see brightness but cloud will quickly spread from the west ahead of this band of rain. through tomorrow afternoon, we'll see some strong winds across the far west and final to scotland, these are the average wind speeds that glass could be close to gale force. we'll see rain spreading across the south west of scotla nd rain spreading across the south west of scotland and northern ireland, parts of north—west england getting down into wales and into the south—west of england eventually, as we go on through the afternoon. through the middle and end the south—west of england eventually, as we go on through the afternoon. through the midlands into eastern parts of england, in dry weather, some brighter glimpses perhaps but increasing amounts of cloud, temperatures around 16 or 17 degrees. on saturday night, the band
of rain will push from the west to the east very slowly. heavy and persistent rain affecting many areas. on sunday, the frontal system instead of clearing awayjust hangs back, it holds on so rain is likely to persist across some parts of southern and central scotland down the eastern side of england, they are met office yellow warning is in force, that is the lowest warning the met office will issue. we could see a further 40 millimetres of rain or more in some places after what has been after a real wet spell of weather, this could cause flooding and travel problems. in the west, things will brighten up and we will see sunshine a day on the day. next week stays unsettled, heavy rain at times, and it will often be windy.
