the 5th of the 5th efjanuary. year period from the 5th of january. but we are not doing nothing in the meantime, the exemption scheme is important and is already helping in many key sectors and the changes i talk about today to ensure prioritisation for essential workers and access to testing will help further so there is no sense in which we are not taking this issue seriously but we are simply trying to avoid compounding the problem as we try to solve that problem. secondly, on financial support, the financial support available for businesses in scotland now is significantly higher proportionally thanit significantly higher proportionally than it certainly is in england, i can't say much for wales and northern ireland, it demonstrates the seriousness with which we are taking this on money is flowing and will flow to businesses as quickly as possible. from announcing it through to making the money available to councils, through to i thinkjust days before christmas, a

leaders meeting to agree that these funds, to the checks being done right now to get the money out the door, it is being done at pace and money will start flowing to businesses in the days to come, and of course there will be more of it as we allocate the additional funds we have made available. 50. as we allocate the additional funds we have made available. so, nicola sturueon we have made available. so, nicola sturgeon still _ we have made available. so, nicola sturgeon still taking _ we have made available. so, nicola sturgeon still taking questions - sturgeon still taking questions there. this is a virtual session of holyrood, the scottish parliament, as you will gather, and this has been specially convened, in light of covid, and because we are running up to new year, to hogmanay, and the first minister again urging people to stay—at—home more than normal, and to limit the size of your indoor gatherings to know more than three households. a lot of talk about boosters as welcome as we have heard from the westminster government, please get your booster, please bring your appointment forward for your booster if you possibly can, and also making the point that the belief is about 80% of cases of

covid in scotland are now believed to be the omicron variant. no one should be complacent about getting covid, says the first minister. and all of that again throwing up what we have discussed a lot in the last few days, the difference in approach in the uk, depending where you live, depending which nation you live in, in terms of different restrictions, as we edge up to new year. we will talk more about that in the coming hours. i am sure. right now, the time is 2:32pm, much more coming up from 3pm. now on bbc news, review 2021, the year in sport. the world of sport roared to life in 2021, as major events took place, and spectators returned. our sport presenter adam wild takes a close look at the highs and lows of a memorable year.
2:33 pm
there's never been a sporting year quite like 2021. it would, though, take a little time for the volume to be turned up. like everything else, it had to wait. as the year began, the backing track was the sound of silence. fans were still some way behind. covid's cancellations and chaos continued, the pandemic still providing all the background noise. the empty stadia, a stark, constant reminder that no amount of fake sounds or even fake crowds could drown out. that was over here. over there, well, this was how the world's best tennis players were preparing for one of the first major sporting events of the year, the australian open. strict hotel quarantine divided opinion. tennis was struggling to keep calm and carry on. novak djokovic became the men's champion, the first of three
2:34 pm
grand slams for him this year. naomi osaka, the women's champion, herfirst and final grand slam of 2021. her withdrawal from the others to protect her mental health, the starting point for another of the year's major sporting narratives. in truth, many were still questioning whether sport should be going ahead at all. rugby union's six nations did — just about — and despite everything off the field, on it, it was one of the best we've ever seen. an empty twickenham, and defending champions, england, is where scotland began. intimidating, perhaps, but they came with a plan. commentator: try. strange and silent twickenham. save _ commentator: try. strange and silent twickenham. save only _ commentator: try. strange and silent twickenham. save only the _ commentator: try. strange and silent twickenham. save only the cheers - commentator: try. strange and silent twickenham. save only the cheers and i twickenham. save only the cheers and roars of the scotland players. wales began at home. no crowd, of course.

england couldn't stop winning, and neither it seemed could rachael blackmore. riding winners but never getting carried away. in april, she became the first femalejockey to win the grand national. the gender thing was never an issue. i just carried that forward. it was just such a special race. i'm absolutely honoured to be able to put my name beside it. at the crucible, the role was finally back. the snooker championships became the first major british event to welcome back fans. raising the roof, champion mark selby. fans returning in football, and revolting — proposals for european super league sparked outrage. fan power won, for now. manchester city are the premier league champions.

its finest team. one of those involved was manchester city. having won the league cup, they added the premiership title, celebrations but they dreamt of more, as the chelsea women but not before they had to wait for the very last day of the season to clinch the big domestic prize. chelsea are the champions of england! still very little could match the scenes ofjubilation in glasgow. in one side of it, at least. for every rangers fan, all players all over— for every rangers fan, all players all over the — for every rangers fan, all players all over the world, _ for every rangers fan, all players all over the world, it's _ for every rangers fan, all players all over the world, it's a - for every rangers fan, all players all over the world, it's a big - all over the world, it's a big moment _ all over the world, it's a big moment-— all over the world, it's a big moment. ~ ., ~ ., , ., moment. we worked our way up from the bottom and _ moment. we worked our way up from the bottom and now _ moment. we worked our way up from the bottom and now we _ moment. we worked our way up from the bottom and now we are _ moment. we worked our way up from the bottom and now we are right - moment. we worked our way up from the bottom and now we are right at i the bottom and now we are right at the bottom and now we are right at the top. for the bottom and now we are right at the to -. ., the bottom and now we are right at theto. ., . ., , the top. for the champions, it has been one fantastic— the top. for the champions, it has been one fantastic journey. - the top. for the champions, it has i been one fantastic journey. rangers been one fantastic “ourney. rangers champions. _ been one fantastic “ourney. rangers champions. but — been one fantastic journey. rangers champions, but the _ been one fantastic journey. rangers champions, but the caps, _ been one fantastic journey. rangers champions, but the caps, both - been one fantastic journey. rangers champions, but the caps, both of. champions, but the caps, both of them, belong to stjohnstone. in scotland, still no fans were there to see the historic double, and that is what partly made the fa cup final so extraordinary. 21,000 inside wembley to witness one
