hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are benedicte paviot from france 2a and matt dathan from the times. tomorrow's front pages. the guardian reports that britain's live events sector has finally been promised a covid cancellation insurance scheme — but that the announcement comes too late for many festivals and events that have already been cancelled. the daily telegraph writes that universities are turning to entrance exams because they can no longer rely on a—levels to find the brightest students. the i reports on the government's plans to deploy vaccine buses and use influencers to encourage teenagers to take upjabs. the times adds that young people will be told to get a coronavirus vaccine or miss out on fun — as ministers employ veiled threats to boost waning take—up rates.

11:33 pm
commercial insurers are not covering events for covid reasons. it's been estimated that around a quarter of all music events of our capacity of 5000 have already had to cancel this year, so that shows you how many that it's too late for a lot of music events, such as that festival. it's come just in time, the industry experts to save music events early next year, so that's all tells you how far in advance these events are and having the right insurance in place in case of having to cancel. sub benedicte, a great scheme for 2022. ., ., �* , sub benedicte, a great scheme for 2022. ., ., �*, ., 2022. yeah, that's part of the problem- _ 2022. yeah, that's part of the problem- as _ 2022. yeah, that's part of the problem. as has _ 2022. yeah, that's part of the problem. as has been - 2022. yeah, that's part of the problem. as has been coming 2022. yeah, that's part of the . problem. as has been coming for 2022. yeah, that's part of the - problem. as has been coming for a lon- problem. as has been coming for a long time, — problem. as has been coming for a long time, so it is very disappointing for some people on, and as_ disappointing for some people on, and as nat — disappointing for some people on, and as nat was saying it's notjust the music—

11:39 pm
rather than really trying to persuade youngsters to come forward by pointing out that they are going to be missing out on a whole load of fun, basically. they will see billboards and social media campaigns telling them that you on this out on the good times. we can see those billboards and snap chats, tick tax, it will be interesting to see if that has an impact. i think it will because alongside the threat of if you want to go to a nightclub, you have to have two jabs. i think that will really have an impact rather than trying to persuade people to getjabbed by offering them free pizza orjumping on a bus in the high street, for example. is in the high street, for example. is that the secret? get jabbed or that the secret? getjabbed or missed the fund? that the secret? get 'abbed or missed the fund?_ that the secret? get 'abbed or missed the fund? ~ ., �* ,, ., missed the fund? well, i don't know if this is a secret. _ missed the fund? well, i don't know if this is a secret. this _ missed the fund? well, i don't know if this is a secret. this is _ missed the fund? well, i don't know if this is a secret. this is clearly - if this is a secret. this is clearly part— if this is a secret. this is clearly part of— if this is a secret. this is clearly part of the _ if this is a secret. this is clearly part of the plan of the government because _ part of the plan of the government because the fact of the matter is that they—

11:43 pm
would be. so, it's desperate times for young people, notjust16 and 17—year—olds, but also those in their early 20s are starting new jobs and haven't been able to meet their new colleague. i can't imagine what it's like. and that's before you think about those who have to work from home, often in their early 20s, living in the flat shares at five or six people. i don't know how thatis five or six people. i don't know how that is sustainable for what has been 16 or 17 months now. can we introduce and _ been 16 or 17 months now. can we introduce and a _ been 16 or 17 months now. can we introduce and a double _ been 16 or 17 months now. can we introduce and a double star, - introduce and a double star, benedicte? i introduce and a double star, benedicte?— introduce and a double star, benedicte? ~' ., , , benedicte? ithink, i mean, yes, it's possible. _ benedicte? ithink, i mean, yes, it's possible, but _ benedicte? ithink, i mean, yes, it's possible, but i'm _ benedicte? ithink, i mean, yes, it's possible, but i'm not - it's possible, but i'm not convinced, as you can see from my reaction _ convinced, as you can see from my reaction i— convinced, as you can see from my reaction. ., ., convinced, as you can see from my reaction-_ as _ convinced, as you can see from my reaction._ as they say . convinced, as you can see from my reaction._ as they say in | reaction. i got that. as they say in french- -- — reaction. i got that. as they say in french... that's _ reaction. i got that. as they say in french... that's the _ reaction. i got that. as they say in french... that's the least - reaction. i got that. as they say in french... that's the least one - reaction. i got that. as they say in french... that's the least one can | french... that's the least one can say _ french... that's the least one can say we _ french... that's the least one can say. we have _ french... that's the least one can say. we have had the bank of england governor talking about inflation, and here — governor talking about inflation, and here we have got grade inflation. and itjust adds and here we have got grade inflation. and it just adds to the stress _ inflation. and it just adds to the stress of— inflation. and it just adds to the stress of the students, the stress of the _ stress of the students, the stress of the universities as well, trying to handle — of the universities as well, trying to handle this, and, you know, try to handle this, and, you know, try

the most in english club has spent on one man. granulation is from sally hall. he joined villa as a six—year—old, and by 18 was in the first team. he stayed with them even when they were relegated and dragged them back to the top, but as club captain, he pledged to stayjust last year, and even after 20 years with one

team, it can hurt to say goodbye. he is a local boy, but i think being a professional footballer is different when you've got that professional athlete mentality and you do want to win things, and 26 next birthday. i thinkjack wants to sample the highest level. he has had a taste of it with england. i think he probably thought it's now or never to make a move. at city, hejoins raheem sterling and phil foden, three england team—mates who could play in the champions league together. but the price tag doesn't guarantee greatness. two players have left the premier league for nine figures, but both delete and hazard have struggled at new clubs. a lovely a little ding. he is a lifelong villa fan, but as many teens struggle, manchester city have shown they can get to they want. and even if it's £100 million, every player has a price. joe lynsky, bbc news.

barcelona say that after 20 years, lionel messi is leaving the club. they've released an extraordinary statement claiming that "financial and structural obstacles" are preventing him from signing a new contract. messi has been a free agent sincejuly, and there have been countless rumours about his future — he agreed a new contract with a huge pay cut to stay at camp nou but barca say they can't even afford that. so where might messi go next? manchester city has already signed a very expensive player, guardiola he always said he would not take lionel messi from there, they are allowed to take him there, but i think that psg seems a more likely club for him. of course, because psg could interchange lionel messi for real madrird, so the operation i think it's quite possible. staying with football, celtic are back to winning ways, after being knocked out of the champions league. they beat fk jablonec

4—2 in the first leg of their europa league qualifier. kyogo furuhashi marked his first start with a lovely finish — and the victory in the czech republic gave manager ange postecoglou his first win since taking over. the second legs in glasgow next thursday. there was a famous night for stjohnstone in their qualifier in istanbul. they held the former winners of this competition galatasaray to a 1—1 draw. jason kerr had put the scottish premiership side in front from the spot, but galatasary equalised two minutes later through sacha boey. christian ramirez rescued aberdeen after they'd thrown away a two goal lead against breidablik in iceland in the europa conference league qualifying. his second goal gave them a 3—2 advantage to take back to pittodrie. for all the scores visit the bbc sport website to tokyo now, where great britain won three more medals on day 13 — and there's a chance of more when the action restarts on friday. let's speak to our reporter sarah mulkerrins. sarah, hello, big day for gb's women on both the cycling
11:55 pm
and athletics track. yeah, it certainly is. we will start with katie archibald and loretta kenney going in that madison for great britain. laura kenny after his silver earlier in the action in the dome, she could potentially win her third olympic gold medal, three olympic games potentially for her to do that. she would be the first female to do that from great britain. if she gets any medal at all, she would equal the record of charlotte with six 0lympic medals. so no doubt it will be all eyes on laura kenny bear and the great story that she provides, and then on the track, we have got another laura and laura mira, she's going in the 1500 metres final. she has been there or thereabouts, hasn't she, in most of the spine is that the outdoors and the olympics and at the recent past, but she is never quite got on the podium. she has taken the 800 metres away
11:56 pm
from herself and this event in order to focus on the 1500 metres. however, she will have some stiff opposition from the dutch runner. she has already won gold in the 5000 metres. she's going in the 1500 metres as well, and she is also trying to get an unprecedented treble she's also going to go for gold in the women's 10,000 metres. a great story but deena asher—smith. we have seen the injury concerns for her earlier on in the games. she was able to come back and take part back and take part in the four by 100 metre relay. they were able to qualify to through the final. however, the jamaican relay team will be really tough and that, so they will give them a tough task. that potentially, get hopes for great britain's men's and the relay because we saw that the usa men's team failed to qualify yesterday, a very bad second changeover in their seat side and finished down in sixth. so team gb potentially looking at some medals in the relays. thank you very much, sarah, talking to us from tokyo. india will resume on 125 for four

on the third day of the first test with england tomorrow. that's 58 runs behind the hosts total. england were in the ascendancy whenjames anderson took the wicket of virat kohli for a first ball duck, but rain eventually stopped play. and that's all the sport for now. bye— bye. hello. northern parts of the uk face the greatest risk of disruption from heavy and thundery downpours during friday. parts of scotland, northern ireland, northern england, north wales, also the further north you are in the midlands as well. also some longer spells of rain in eastern scotland only easing later in the day, and again a risk of some localised flooding here. and there'll be some sunny spells around at times, too, but most of those are going to be towards south wales, the south midlands, east anglia and southern england. yes, a few heavy showers to contend with that may be thundery, but also they'll move through more quickly in a stronger wind and perhaps more of the day is dry compared with the northern half
11:58 pm
of the uk. as we go on through friday night and into saturday morning, showers still spiralling around that low pressure system and temperatures in the mid to low teens. part one of the weekend maybe just beefs up the showers across southern areas and up towards east anglia for a time. the downpours continue elsewhere. but it's important to point out it won't be raininig all the time. you may well find yourself in a drier, sunnier moment, too.
