motivated, so i think that's what gives me that extra edge of being motivated. i know he lost weight, i know he is going to try to box me around, but it is myjob to prevent that, so i am ready for whatever comes my way, and i am ready to rock and roller. he has had this steely, determined look about him, very different to his demeanour in new york when he was miles a week and didn't have a care in the world. he looks almost on edge which isn't necessarily a bad thing, because perhaps that was the missing ingredient in new york. has achieved a lot in his years in boxing, 0lympic a lot in his years in boxing, olympic champion back in 2012, and he says rather than denting his confidence, the defeat against andy ruiz has reinvigorated him. confidence, the defeat against andy ruiz has reinvigorated himlj confidence, the defeat against andy ruiz has reinvigorated him. i didn't lose any heart or any type of fire in my belly, and a started punching the heavy bag. i am really looking forward to at. there is no fear in my heart, my eyes, my mind, i am

really looking forward to putting on a show and i am confident. the buildup to this show has been different. we haven't seen thousands of the travelling fans as we did in new york, and both men will meet in a gala dinner on thursday night. is it the reason they have come to the middle east is to introduce boxing toa middle east is to introduce boxing to a new territory, and coming to a wealthy country like saudi arabia will bring huge financial rewards for both men. the ioc and organisers of next year's tokyo 0lympics have been defending their decision to move the men's and women's marathon from the japanese capital to the city of sapporo, 831 kilometers further north, because it's cooler. the women's race will take place on the 8th august, and the men's on the 9th, which is the final day of the games. that means athletes will have to be flown to tokyo for the closing ceremony. there has been a lot of discussion regarding start times across the game which led to some reviews. the
1:54 am
move to sapporo and knowing that it was done to protect the welfare and the athletes and knowing that sapporo is significantly cooler generally at the time of year than tokyo, that allowed us a little bit more flexibility, so in terms of the actual start times that were confirmed with tokyo and world athletics, the marathons are both at 7pm. this was the original planned start time before they were brought forward to six ams. it allowed us to go back to that originally planned time of seven am. and all the sports news is available on our website, but we are totally out of time, so from me and all of the team, goodbye.

some of us have got quite murky conditions to come over the next few hours. the fog patch is to the south—east of this weather front but if we zoom out of the uk and look at what is upstream of us we can see the next area of low pressure showing its hand and this will bring wet and windy weather to the north—west of the uk in a few hours time. for the time being we have showers across the north—west so if you step outside here, take your umbrella. dense fog patches are forming around the thames estuary. we have seen fog at heathrow, around the m25 and some of that is freezing fog with temperatures well below freezing as well. some of these murky conditions, some of the fog patches may last into the first part of thursday morning bringing poor travelling conditions out and about. but for thursday's weather for the most part, really we're looking at this next weather system moving in and
1:56 am
that will bring strong wind with it to the north—west and outbreaks of rain which will quickly spread in across northern ireland and scotland before sinking southwards later in the day into the north of england and wales. in the highlands of scotland we will see the largest accumulations of rain with 70 or 80 millimetres of rain in the forecast here. that is a lot of rain, enough for localised surface water flooding issues. damp at times in the northern half of the country, after the murky start in the south—east, things should brighten for a few of us with sunshine around and for most it is a relatively mild day with temperatures widely into double figures. through thursday night we will see the rain push southwards across all of england and wales for a time with all the cloud around and south—westerly wind it be a very mild night. thursday night into the first part of friday morning for most, temperatures into double figures. a mild start to friday but for quite a few of us a wet start as well. mild and wet with south—westerly wind later in the day the rain will tend to eased to a mixture of sunshine and shower, north—westerly winds will start
1:57 am
to move in bringing cooler air to the north—west of the country and a significant drop in temperature. so later on in the afternoon, five degrees in some areas, eight in aberdeen. still mild further south with highs of 11 or so in london. this weekend we're looking at a ridge of high pressure to start the weekend. later in the weekend we will see the band of rain come through and quite a bit of that might come through overnight. there will be further pulses of rain for sunday. 0verall, saturday looks like being the better of the two days of the weekend and sunday could see rain at times for many of us. and that is your weather.
