just say watchathon into your voice remote to watch now. ♪ >> announcer: this is cnn br breaking news. hello and welcome to all of you watching all around the world. i'm kim brunhuber. two breaking news stories this hour, each stied to grand spectacles taking place in their nation's capitals. in paris, official ceremonies to get under way for the inauguration of emmanuel macron to a second presidential term. guests and dignitaries began arriving about an hour ago. in moscow, red square is getting ready for monday's important victory day military parade. may 9th is the 77th anniversary
of the soviet union defeat of nazi germany in world war ii russians call the great patriotic war. the russia's brutal war in ukraine now in third month with enormous military losses debatable whether president putin has much to show for it. we begin our coverage in paris and macron's second inauguration set to take place about an hour from now. cnn european affairs commentator dominic thomas from los angeles. we're watching live pictures as the guests and dignitaries are waiting for macron at the palace. so i just want to ask you sort of about what we're about to see here. traditionally these second inaugurations are less showy than the first ones. give us a sense of what we might see and what we might hear from macron coming up soon. >> reporter: yeah, in terms of the showiness, this is the first incumbent to win in 20 years. it's been a while since we have seen someone have a second run
at this. certainly this time around emmanuel macron since his 2017 victory is toning down the spekd kal, but i think this speech is an opportunity to reach out. it was a very divided election. people were asked for the third time in five elections to vote against the far right candidate marine le pen or her father from back in 2002. so, that's a tall order. very divided, as we saw in the first round and all the debates, voter apathy and so on and so forth. emmanuel macron has the opportunity to capture the attention of the nation and to talk crucially, as we are just a few weeks away from the legislative elections, and -- >> i'll just jump in to point out that emmanuel macron is arriving now. very somber face. there he just cracked a smile. we see a band playing in the background there as he's
greeting the people at the palace. so as we await to see what's going to happen here as he's going to address the people, you know, one of the decisions he has to make is about prime minister. he said he will appoint a new one. any idea when that might happen? who the front-runners are? i know he mentioned that he wanted to appoint a woman and just tell us a bit more about what's at stake here. >> reporter: a lot at stake because it will send a very important, crucial message as we go into the legislatures. it's a difficult decision because i think the outcome of the ledge slaift elections unlike 2017 when it was quite clear emmanuel macron was going to carry the momentum from his election into that and be able to control the legislative branch, it's a little up in the air this time around. so he's got to convince somebody to be a prime minister that potentially a prime minister only for a period of three to four weeks as the legislatetures
end. if he doesn't have a majority, he may not be able to hold on to that post. he's made clear he's eager to appoint a woman to the position and somebody with important environmental credentials so that he can reach across to some of those voters on the left that he's hoping to capture in kind of these races. some names have been thrown around, christine lagarde, for example, but i think it's still too early to call. those are the main concerns he has right now but it will send a very crucial message, kim, as we go into these legislative elections. >> speaking of those, so we have a coalition from the left that's trying to oppose him there. he's formed his own centrist coalition, but notoriously in france these coalitions are very volatile. do you think that they will hold, you know, in time for the parliamentary elections and beyond? >> yeah. we see everybody is trying to
rebrand themselves. they see how divided the country is. they know so many people did not bother to vote in either the first round or the run-off stages. they're all eager to appeal to those voter. it introduces a lot of volatility, a lot of uncertainty. certainly emmanuel macron is trying to appeal to center left and center right voters. the biggest move has been on the left and ironically enough those parties failed to come together in the first round and i think it cost them potentially a place in the run-off stages. they seem to have been able to forge some kind of alliance going into these races but the legislatures are a different thing all together. one seat constituencies and a lot of strategies and a lot of attempts to keep candidates out from the run-off stages. the percentages they get in the presidential election very rarely translate into those kinds of seats when it comes to the legislatures, kim. >> before we look ahead again, i want to look behind at the last
term many people say was plagued by many different crises. let's put covid aside. what do you think macron has learned from that first term that he might be able to apply in the second term? >> yeah. well, i think that when it comes to foreign policy credentials, he's absolutely ideally poised. in fact, his reputation abroad is actually better than it is domestically. i think what he needs to understand when it comes to the situation in france going all the way back to the yellow jackets is that whether or not he goes to the people saying that unemployment numbers are good, as far as he's concerned cost of living is doing okay, so and on and so forth. deep seeded emotions running high in the country. he needs to understand, listen better to the grievances that people have and that's the way in which you go about combatting the policies of the far right. so he's going to have to focus a lot more on the domestic agenda and can't simply rely on his
position and leverage with the european union on the conflict in ukraine to distract from those particular issues. that's going to be a very difficult uphill struggle for him in a very divided country where the majority of the population did not vote for him in the first round. when there are deep divisions on the far right and on the far left and contempt in many ways for a president that they see as not being a good listener as rather aloof and not attentive to the genuine grievances of so many french people when it has -- when it comes down to their lifestyles, cost of living, gas prices and the broader kind of economic concerns in the country, kim. >> i think we're just going to listen in. i believe he's being declared now. so let's listen in and hear what's going on here.
>> sorry, not the foreign legion. grand master of the legion. >> i think as our translator was being said there, he was being declared -- the legion of honor. and then we're going to get the signature of the official report of the election and then he'll step up to speech. i think we're going to listen in now. >> translator: ladies and gentlemen, at the time when the french have entrusted me with
the responsibility of this country, i am fully aware of the gravity of our times and the return of war in europe, the pandemic, as well as the ecological urgency. this is a time of crisis. rarely that we have known recently our country has been confronted with such a conjunction of challenges. in the name of the people, you have decided to vote for me. at times not given in to the temptation of nationalism to the nostalgia of the past or the idealogies we hoped we have left last century. the french people made the choice of a clear, explicit project of the future, a republican project and a european project, a project of independence in a world that is destabilized. a project of scientific and
social progress and ecological progress. a project that is faithful to the time of the enlightenment when we turned our back on demagogues. this choice is now part of the history of our republic and the presence of my two predecessors i thank you for this, that you are here to witness it. this sovereign choice requires me to do so much because it is the french people who chooses its representative, and in particular the french president of the republic. today i receive the mandate of the french people has not prolonged the project of 2017. this is a new french people from five years ago has entrusted in me a new president, a new mandate.
the time comes upon us will be a crucial time for france and europe. we must act first to avoid all escalation given russian aggression in ukraine. we need courage. we need to build a new peace in europe and new autonomy on our continent. we need to act in a way to make our country a power, agriculturely, scientifically, industrially stronger, simplifying our laws and to create the france looking to 2030, act to build a society of full employment. france has to continue innovating, create added value and business. act to make us a leader in ecology, a great power, a radical transformation of the way that we create power, that we move around our country and also in our overseas stories to confront inequalities at their
root. recreating our schools and health system. schools that are more inclusive, fundamental -- looking at fundamental knowledge. to guide us. schools that are open to new cultures, to sport so that we have those to reflect the olympics in '24, so we need to create an improved working conditions, improve when people get sick, the conditions for them. we all address all the problems that we confront as individuals. the problems between men and women, act to protect our compatriots with a strong engaged committed army on all our continues innocents. and fight daily, the daily challenge of terrorism and new threats. act finally, ultimately, to
reunite and bring together our people and satisfactions we have had. yes, we must act without rage. with one objective to be a more independence nation, to live better and to construct french and european responses to our challenges. this action we all know we must do it. it comes at a moment in the life of our nation when there is a lot of division in our society. so acting will not be about administering, will be about administering the country and just offering already made solutions. actions will be about bringing people together, dialogue, consideration, reunifying us. that is why we must, as a
country, invent and find a new method far from the old ways, old choreographed act, so we can create a new contract, productive, social, ecological contract because bringing together and just pacifying us would mean to accept to do nothing and to forget our responsibilities. by sharing objectives and ambitions and responsibilities at a national level, making the government, the administration, parliament, social partners work together, associating all of us, all political, economic, cultural, social agencies and agents to bring them together by planning, by reforming, by coming together i am sure that our country can at the same time decide to have big national
ambitions and liberate the creativity and the initiatives all that we find all around our country. most of all, this will be the fundamental refounding of the democratic relations of our country. it will be constinstitutional, political but it must be in our everyday actions, and everybody will have their part to play. ladies and gentlemen, our passions must show in these most difficult times. and it is often in difficult times we show our best side. it's often from tragedy that we will find the power to transcend these, to write in ink, in universal ink, the history of our country. this is where we're at. as the century, we do not know where we go and with the planetary issues we must create
a new path and show and be an inspiration. my conviction is already in place. let us have the courage to look at the real in face, to make our ideals more concrete instead of giving in to nebulous solutions in the name of democracy, for eternity and secular ideals. let us work together. how we're all together in this new millennium that we bring together under universal beliefs. let us continue to love the republic and everything it brings. the preeminence of public and general will will help us. the respect of law as the main duty of a social contract, let
us love our country, our history and our heritage, its geography, its landscape. from the pyrenees to the plains of pikidy from top to bottom to left to right, this ancient nation with its great roots which offered the most wonderful dreams, humanous dreams, enlightenment, rights of man, so, yes, france has not finished. will never end inspiring the world. because of what you have entrusted in me, french people, i'm ready to fulfill this duty. this trust you have in me is always fragile. i'm aware of that. but it is the foundation of our government and our freedoms. each day it will be just to you, the french people i will be serving, serving the country.
miracle of the will of man's belief in freedom. serving other citizens in the sense of duty and the love of our nation. serving our children and our youth. i think of them particularly at this time and to whom i say this sermon and i say i will leave them a safer planet and a stronger, living france. long live the republic, and love live france. [ applause ]. >> we're listening there to french president emmanuel macron who is being inaugurated for his second term. and the ceremony was taking place at the palace in paris. he defeated far right candidate marie le pen. now he is facing coalition of left wing parties. i want to bring in dominic
thomas now who has been watching there with me. dominic, we heard him start off with that phrase, this is a time of crisis. top of the speech he was talking about having to act in order to avoid aggression, clearly referring to the war in ukraine. macron sought to play a peace-making role since the beginning of the war. what do you get a sense here? will he continue to carve a path separate from the european nations to try to get russian to the table? or are we going to see macron fall more in line with the rest of europe and become more confrontational perhaps with russia on this issue? >> i think that emmanuel macron is ideally poised now, particularly given the fact that the merkel era is over in germany, to assume the kind of leadership position in the european union. he still controls the presidency until the end of the european union, until the end of the
month of june. of course, the distraction of the electoral campaign played a part in it and the conflict in ukraine is the number one priority. and i think that now that the election is out of the way, he's got to focus on the legislatives. but with that in mind, it is absolutely clear that he remains committed to maintaining that foreign policy objective and to finding a solution to that conflict in ukraine. and he has been repeated interlocutor with president puten from his very early days in office and i think he sees himself as a key broker in this conflict at this stage, kim. >> yeah. so many challenges internationally and domestically as well. we'll keep following along throughout the day. thank you so much, dominic thomas, really appreciate it. >> thank you. ♪ there have been no new evacuations reported yet today from mariupol's besieged as of
stall steel factory. at least 50 civilians were successfully evacuated from the complex on friday. let's go to isa soares in ukraine. on the azovstal steel factory, what more do we know about the evacuations there? >> reporter: very good morning to you, kim. we were expecting evacuations to take place, of course, earlier today. we are being told we should be expecting and still we're about three hours in or so, but remember there is still about 100 or so civilians inside the azovstal steel plant looking out and they're being bombarded every single day. the intensity of this is increasing. so we're keeping a very close eye on the city this morning to see if there are any developments, to see if we get any good news, of course, as we have seen the last few days.
russia made the promise of evacuating civilians. that hasn't happened with the exception of friday we saw at least 50 civilians evacuated from mariupol. the russian military, as you can see there, was seen escorting those two buses said to be carrying some of those evacuees to the town east of mariupol. ukrainian officials say they were later able to travel to ukrainian-held territory. but you know, like i was saying, sprawling factory is being under constant bombardment. president zelenskyy said he is hoping to negotiate the safe evacuation of the soldiers. there are roughly 600 still inside. have a listen. >> translator: we are also working on diplomatic options to save our military who remain in azo azovstal. influential mediators are involved, including influential states. >> reporter: russia has been
hastily putting its stamp where it can in mariupol ahead of its victory holiday on monday. a russian flag been seen flying above a city hospital. signs have been changed from ukrainian to russian. and adviser to mariupol's mayor soviet era statues are popping up across the city. today ukrainian force in northeast ukraine are having some success against the russians and for the first time the ukrainian general staff is accusing russia of blowing up bridges to slow down ukrainian counterattacks, a sign, of course, that russian offensive in kharkiv may not be going well. but russia is also touting the progress in the region. it claims to have destroyed a large stockpile of western weapons at a railway station northwest of kharkiv. but cnn cannot independently verify either of those claims. jill dougherty is professor at georgetown university and cnn's former moscow chief and she
joins me now. jill, very good morning to you. let's talk what we can expect on that may 9th parade. i know for years you have been covering this. the significance probably has shifted maybe not. what do you think we can expect this year? >> i think it's one of the most important times on may 9th for russia in a very long time because, isa, as you know, that holiday and it really is the biggest holiday in russia it's filled with not contradictory but deep feelings of both victory because russia is celebrating the ussr's victory over nazi germany in 1945, but there's also a very large amount of suffering and understanding what the russian people, the soviet people went through. so, it has always been very, very important.
but i think before president putin, this has become the core issue of his ideology, what makes russia russia. and it really looks back to the past. there has been increasing militarization in russia of society. there are organizations. there's one group in particular for young people, the young army, youth or army. and leading people into that understanding of their past in a very militaristic way. so that said, that's kind of the basis. what will be important, obviously, is what president putin will say. and he could, you know, nobody really knows precisely, will he say mission accomplished in some fashion? he kind of has to i think for the russian people to say that all of this suffering, a lot of which they have not seen on state tv i should add, but all of this is it worth it what has
been accomplished. so there has to be that. but he could also broaden it, i think. and he could say the fight against -- this is all in quotes, of course, but the fight against what he perceives as neo-nazis is not over. so it's going to be a very important part. people of russia will be watching and listening carefully, but so will the world. >> reporter: yeah. i do wonder, jill, whether the messaging or the parade this year will have obviously different significance given the fact it's not just about avoiding repetition of horrors of war, like you were mentioning. and more likely perhaps to be interpreted as a warning to its enemies, given the show of force. >> yes. and it always is, because you know, in this -- on this day, there will be, may 9th, there will be missiles. there will be a parade. it's a real show of force.
but as we have been seeing the pictures of some of the parade preparations, you're going to get a lot of reference to 1945. and i think the president is going to link that and say the grandparents accomplished back in 1945 is what these brave, young people, especially men, are accomplishing for russia right now. it really is -- if there's any emotional link for every russian regardless of where they are on the political spectrum it is what happened in 1945 because 27 million people died on that side, on the russian/soviet side. so everybody has a relative. and this is very resonate. the president is using, some would say, exploiting those emotions to build support for what he is doing now. >> and that, of course, we will be seeing will be in red square this morning.
we saw the dress rehearsals in moscow for may the 9th. but what do you think, jill, will be the message? what do you think we'll see in ukraine because we have been talking, of course, of kherson and the independence of republic of kherson and the territories they have taken. what do you think we're expecting to see here? >> i think on the issue of rhusification, i've seen video and pictures on social media of a soviet flag in the hands of the statue. this kind of -- the soviet nostalgia is very big in russia. it's a very strong tendency among some people. and so, i think we're going to get echos of that. it might be visual. it might be a flag raised, a little parade. nobody knows whether that can happen under these circumstances. but i think again you're going to have these emotional res sew
n resew nans. what can president putin show concretely he has accomplished. right now you have, as everyone has been saying, and we see graphically in front of us that the war for russia is not going well in ukraine. i think also, isa, another thing it helps president putin expand the idea of who the enemy is here because if the enemy is simply ukraine or, you know, fascist, quote, neo-nazis in ukraine, then that's one thing. but if the enemy gets broadened to nato, the united states, the really big powers of the world, it makes, i think, putin's message stronger. so i would not be surprised if you have hints maybe not by name but it could be, but i think broadening that idea that the person -- the entity that russia
is fighting against is again in quotes as putin is displaying it or trying to present it, is naziism, fascism and that russia once again is leading the fight and saving the world. that's the message i expect to hear. >> yeah. i think the images of military strength is something that you and i have seen every year. but it will be interesting to see what exactly he says. i'm sure many of us will be reading between the lines as he -- in regards to what he might declare come monday. jill dougherty, i'm sure we'll talk on monday. joining us from washington. thank you very much, jill. great to have your insight. >> tune in monday for live coverage of victory day parade in russia. we'll have live coverage as troops and officials gather 9:00 a.m. moscow time, 7:00 a.m. in london and the parade is expected to get under way an hour later. and that does it for me here in
lviv, ukraine. back to you, kim. >> thanks so much, isa. the eyes in the sky, playing a huge role in ground battles in ukraine. next you'll see a video of a brutal infinity fight recorded in its entirety by a military drone. stay with us. for back pain, i've always been a take two and call in the morning guy. but my new doctor recommended salonpas. without another pill upsetting my stomach, i get popowerful, effective and safe relief. sasalonpas. it's good medicine.

said evacuations should continue today but there haven't been any signs of them happening so far. at least 100 civilians remain trapped underground bunkers along with the last defenders. on friday, 50 civilians were rescued and made it to ukrainian-held territory. ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy said he is hoping to get soldiers out safely as well. this as ukraine's forces say russian forces have blown up bridges. now cnn can't independently verify either of those claims. so we'll show you now the war in ukraine from an entirely different sperktive. it involves a ground battle recorded in realtime by a russian military drone. the footage was released by pro-kremlin media outlets as
salma abdelaziz reports how important drones have become on ukrainian battlefields. >> reporter: this is drone warfare as russia wants you to see it. moscow's troops hunting down ukrainian defenders. backed by surveillance from the skies. we sat down with a military expert to parse through the 22 minutes of aerial footage released by pro-kremlin channels. so what am i looking at here, this column? >> russian forces there, about eight soldiers. the first moved into the trench to clear that trench. >> we see that ukrainian soldier popping out of that shed over and over again, don't we? >> yeah. small arms fire taking place now and he is essential lipined on that location. whoever is on the drone will speak to the soldiers on the ground. >> this is close and intense combat with limited visibility. the russian fighters here depend on the drone operator for a bird's eye view and realtime
intelligence. >> post another grenade this time he'll get closer and probably done it this time. if that grenade did not kill him, i would be particularly surprised if he survived. >> now watch this part carefully. the video cuts. we're still looking at the same location, but now there are at least six captured men on the ground, purportedly ukrainian defenders. >> we can see the russian soldiers are marked with the white arm bands and the white leg bands and we have a series of soldiers who appear to be prisoners that are on the ground. we don't know where these soldiers have come from. >> what's the plan once they get these guys? >> they have been told to take off the body armor, stripped of their fighting capability immediately. we have here a russian soldier which looks like he's giving physical abuse to prisoner of war that's on the ground just out of sight. they're looking for individuals of interest. they're looking for individuals
of intelligence interest. and they'll get taken away for tactical questioning. >> see that soldier kicking that man. >> yes. that's quite normal, but it's interesting where they're going to next. they'll get crowded in a prisoner war pen. within that, they'll get searched in more detail. they'll get questioned and then they'll get moved to essentially a prison system. >> reporter: the ukrainian military's effective use of turkish made drones helped it beat back russian troops around kyiv and other areas. now the kremlin wants the world to believe it's capable of the same success. >> what we're witnessing is that the russians are being much slower to pick up the use of tactical drones than ukrainians are. >> so are you saying the message here is look, we're really good at using drones, too? >> i believe it is. what we also have here is propaganda material. this is really effectively staged propaganda material. >> it's unclear when this footage is shot but russian troops are now largely in control of what's left of this
town. and that's the other kremlin tactic on display here. scorched earth on the eastern flank. ukrainian troops have largely stood their ground, retreating, if possible, surrendering when no options are left. salma abdelaziz, cnn, london. much more to come on cnn including reports that north korea fired another ballistic missile. we'll get the latest from the region after the break. please stay with us. another pilg my stomach, i geget powerful, effective and safe relief. salonpas. it's good medicine.

korea. and traveled over 600 kilometer trajectory. i'm joined by will ripley in taipei. yet another missile fired by north korea, real flurry of them this year. we're learning disturbing things about this one. what's the latest? >> reporter: yeah, kim. you just talked about the fact that the maximum altitude of this missile was only 60 kilometers. that's less than 40 miles. it could literally be launched from a submarine along the coastline of japan, of south korea hypothetically and would fly under the radar and be essentially impossible for existing missile defense systems to shoot down or certainly very difficult. and this is the kind of missile that could be launched by surprise. that is the nature of submarine warfare, even though north korean warfares are diesel, loud, relatively easy to detect, unlike the united states nuclear submarine fleet far more silent and stealthy. one of the reasons the u.s. navy
is supreme in endoe pacific because of nuclear powered submarines. north korea is demonstrating a submarine launched ballistic missile can travel 600 kilometers more than 370 miles inland that's an escalation and major potential security threat when you're talking about already volatile situation and an arms race essentially that's been happening in the endoe pacific region with china and north korea making hypersonics. a test could happen within the month. that also echoed just hours ago by the japanese defense minister who is speaking publicly about this submarine launched ballistic missile. is south korea national security council held a security meeting. that meeting held during the overnight hours in the east and during the afternoon hours here in asia. and the end result of that was strongly condemning north korea for this launch and president moon jae-in vowing to continue to keep a readiness posture in
the final three days of his presidency because the new south korean president takes office on may 10th. kim, for moon jae-in, the south korean president who hoped to define his five-year term by making peace with north korea and there was the korean detente ant the diplomacy began with president moon and continued with former u.s. president donald trump for him to end his years in office with this flurry of missile tests, north korea conducted 14 missile tests this year, more than 2020 and 2021 k combined has to be a gut punch and corning to see what kim jong-un will do next as the world is focussed on ukraine and kim's activities continue to escalate almost unabated at this stage. >> yet another in a long list of worrying developments there. will ripley, thank you so much. appreciate it. coming up here on cnn "newsroom," two legends, tom brady and lewis hamilton in a sit-down interview. they'll listen to see what

this will be like our super bowl. >> what is something you see within each of you that has propelled you to greatness. >> for me, i look at tom. he is such an icon, such a legend. how he's able to do what he does time and time again, year on year. i don't think enough people can appreciate that. and it's understandable because tom is the only one in his sport that does that. so i look to him for inspiration in terms of how can i do that? how can i raise my bar each year? how can i be a better teammate? those are qualities i feel like i've learned from watching tom. but i think probably the things we have in common is that sheer grit, focus to be better. better than you were yesterday. and precision. >> there you go. attention to detail. >> precision, man, is -- >> can you relate to that when it comes to that precision lewis is talking about. >> yeah. i think it's amazing as i have become a fan of f1 and lewis over the years, just watching him compete, it's ultimate
teamwork. everyone thinks it's just lewis and the car, but he recognizes it's everyone behind the scenes that are allowing him to be successful as well. and, i've seen him when he wins and he gives credit to everyone. and i've seen when he loses, you know, how he doesn't -- there's never blame associated with it, too. so i always feel like our best moments in life come when we're facing our most difficult challenges. >> both of you, though, just iconic, high-level of operation for decade more, right? so, what keeps you going? what drives you? what is it? >> for me, it's always just been trying to -- i always feel like no one cares what you did in the past. you have to be motivated to be your best this year. everyone is showing up to buy season tickets for this season, not for what happened last year or two seasons ago. i feel like people want to come see me do great. they want to see lewis do great. they follow their sports heroes and their favorite sports teams because they want to see you -- the thrill of victory. when i make that commitment to
play, it's an all-encompassing commitment. i want to go out and perform at my best. that requires really at this point in my life a year-round effort to do that, which is really challenging as you get older because things change in life. you know, your life when you're 25 is very different than 35. i look at 35 and think, man, my life was so simple at 35. now at 45, there are so many more unique challenges to it. and i still got to put my time and energy where it needs to be you know, so that other aspects of my life do well too. i feel when it's football season, that's where my -- always been my first love. and it's just amazing to still have the ability to go out and compete. >> both of you have pulled off incredible feats throughout your career. tom, greatest come back in super bowl history. when your back is against the wall, and lewis, i'll get to you as well. adversity strikes, up against it, how do you overcome it? where does your mind go? how do you rise to that moment? >> obviously everyone wants to win. it's a very tough competition. when i'm losing i focus on, you
know, how do i just get back in the game. i always feel like i think of a super bowl in 2016 against atlanta we were down 25 pointings. you can't score 25 points in one touchdown. you have to just chip away. you have to get yourself in striking distance. that just comes with a lot of great plays and great confidence in what you're doing. i've obviously done it long enough where there's no part of the game i feel like we're out of it. i feel like we got a shot until truly the clock says 0:0. we don't always win. that's just part of sports. >> lewis, back is against the wall. how does your team rally in those moments? >> as tom was saying, success is a great thing. and, when you're riding a wave of success, that's one thing. but when you stumble, when you fall, when there's such a large group of you, 2,000 people on my team and on the race weekend, just under 100 people, but we all feel it. and we have responsibility to pick each other up.
but it's through those difficult times that we grow stronger and we grow closer and we pull tighter and dig deeper than we ever thought -- they say you got to dig deep. but you can always dig deeper. you can always go a bit further. and i love that common -- sharing that common goal with your teammates because no matter how many days or how much work it takes to get there, when you finally do, it's the greatest feeling. and so that's what we're seeking all the time. and i watched so many of tom's games, watching him do that, coming back from the toughest times where your head is in your hands. you're like, i don't know how i'm going to pull this back together. then somehow he pulls out this magic from somewhere. i just think it's that ultimate belief inside that we have as athletes that it can be done, that belief in your side that you are great. and that you can do this. >> one of europe's most successful soccer clubs may soon have new owners. chelsea fc announced friday that
