not a hint of that, it is hardly snowing across the scottish mountains let alone anywhere else. this is bbc news, the headlines: the nephew of amis amri and two other men have been arrested by the tunisian authorities for allegedly no part of a terrorist cell linked to the attack on a christmas market in berlin, here, a man and woman have appeared in court in london charged with making preparations for a terrorist attack between july this year and the arrest two weeks ago. israel is to review its contacts with the united nations one day after the security council condemned its policy of settlements on occupied palestinian land. the status quo guitarist, rick parfitt, has died, he was taken to hospital in spain after suffering a severe infection, the musician had been admitted on thursday due to complications following a shoulder injury. and in her christmas address the prime minister has called for

extraordinary sporting achievement, athletes striving to go faster, higher, stronger, if those were the names then this is very much their award, heroes parade, returning paralympics and olympians, many are living up to the high expectations, so living up to the high expectations, so many surpassing it. there's only one place really we can start this review of 2016, and that is some 6000 miles away, from the murky manchester, rio, where this heroes parade, really began. brazil welcomes the world. but just two would welcomes the world. butjust two would be lining up beside them after months of claims and revelations of widespread doping? russia were at the olympics, their track and field team were not. but as they say in sport you can only beat what is in front of you. tea m only beat what is in front of you. team gb, at times, were beating everybody. adam peaty takes olympic call for great britain. in the pool, the best british games
for over a century. above the waves around the base, roaming in rio was truly spectacular. and it is great britain who are men's olympic champions. it is carnival time for great britain. history being written and then rewritten. these were tales of triumph, passion, britain confound its golden touch. all games need their superstars, we had plenty. some catapulted themselves onto the biggest stage. for others, a final flourish before a fond farewell. there were those that arrived as superstars, levi's legend. he is going what he always does, it is called again. the triple trouble. the greatest ever. andy murray. a double olympic gold medallist. some were making history. some were doing what no brit had done before. some award no one had done, for a very long time. justin rose of great
britain takes olympic gold. whilst others, well, they werejust britain takes olympic gold. whilst others, well, they were just doing what they have always done. mo farah has gone, he is away, he is going to get gold for great britain again. the double double. arise sir mo farah. but amidst such company even giving everything might not be enough. at times it was... trust. that is the golden goal. great britain, they have won the olympic gold medal. marvellous moments in the marvellous city, and that was before the paralympics arrived. when they did, those special moments just kept on coming. 147 medals for paralympics gb, 64 of them gold. again and again expectations were met, and then exceeded. you can see a detailed review of all the rio games on the bbc news channel over the festive period. so many
extraordinary achievements on which to look back and enjoy. thank you, rio. few people could have predicted the scale of the success for great britain in rio, but then perhaps 2016 was the year of unexpected triumphs. and there were no bigger shocks anywhere than in the premier league. in the beginning i felt something special of —— but of course i could never have imagined this. there were no odds i would have taken. 10 million to one, i would have thought, no, it isjust wasting £1. it is impossible. injanuary, it is impossible. in january, february... the it is impossible. injanuary, february... the more that the games past, we started to believe, maybe, you know? we are in the champions league, man!
come on! there's only one chance in life. this is our chance. the title has gone for tottenham. claudio ranieri, wins the premier league, leicester city are the champions of england. seeing my team do this it has been amazing. we've done it! this is a team of players where they have been plucked from other clubs, free transfers, it isjust the most incredible achievement, i believe, in british sport. i cannot get my head around it. i think it is genuinely the biggest sporting shock in... probably all sport. i cannot think of anything that surpasses it in team sports.
and it means i have to wear my pants presenting much of the dates? the fans are dreaming. keep dreaming. why wake up? a repeat of that season was always a lot to ask but they did continue the journey into the champions league. there were hopes of another upset in the fa cup, crystal palace went ahead, but their joy would the fa cup, crystal palace went ahead, but theirjoy would not last. a rare moment of triumph for louis van gaal is his reign came to a rather inevitable end. the league cup went to manchester also, city defeating liverpool on penalties, the reds were also defeated in the europa league final. manchester clu bs europa league final. manchester clubs dominated the domestic cup competitions, the woman also did their bit, manchester city winning their bit, manchester city winning the continental cup in the woman's super league. a more established name and the fa cup. arsenal ladies
winning for a 14th time in front of a record crowd. in scotland, celtic we re a record crowd. in scotland, celtic were champions again. with glasgow city dominant in the women's game, and at hampden park, the long wait for a scottish cup ended for hibs. and celtic, league cup champions, after it was awarded for a second time in 2016. but for the other home nations, well, plenty of tales to tell from their summer holidays. with wales, northern ireland, and england, all making it to the european championship in france, hopes were high for a summer to remember. but at times those memories were threatened with being tarnished, violent england fans a worrying reminder of tournaments gone by. on the pitch,
disappointingly it was the same story. a late russian equaliser in marseille set the tone for another tournament to forget. a horrible end tournament to forget. a horrible end to the night. but whilst they were underachieving, northern ireland and wales, well, they were far exceeding expectations. 2-0, niall mcginn! for those, it was a first european championship. even a late, late defeat against england could not stop the wales journey. air a high note for england, but it was wales who carried on the song. ramsey, on—site, aaron ramsey with a chip, and wales have the lead! ramsey, we think it through to gareth bale, he is onside, surely this time... wales 3-0 is onside, surely this time... wales 3—0 russia. is onside, surely this time... wales 3-0 russia. that is what it means to
the fans. look at them. in paris they would meet northern ireland. what a moment for everybody involved. only one team could progress, a heartbreaking end for my colonial‘s team, in particular, gareth mcauley. another welsh win, and they go to the quarterfinals. with the northern ireland truman over they left with plenty of credit and plenty of new friends. if only the same could be said for england. ahead against one of the tournament's big surprises, iceland, it did not last. iceland have turned it did not last. iceland have turned it round, they lead. defeat was as humbling and humiliating as anything in living memory. there is disbelief right around the ground. from england fans, and iceland supporters. the england manager, roy hodgson, has resigned in the past few minutes... now was the time for somebody else to oversee the progress of this young, hungry,
extremely talented group. so it was left to wales to fly the flag for the home nations, a quarterfinal against belgium, perhaps the most magnificent night in their football history. williams! towards robson carnot. taylor is available. what a touring, and a goal. go and wake your kids up. something special is happening here tonight. wales are going into the semifinal! portugal were waiting. for most fans, even beyond their wildest dreams, passion, determination, and the desire, had carried them further than anybody thought possible, but even all that just was not quite enough. thought possible, but even all that just was not quite enoughm thought possible, but even all that just was not quite enough. it is all overfor just was not quite enough. it is all over for wales. just was not quite enough. it is all overfor wales. it will just was not quite enough. it is all over for wales. it will be just was not quite enough. it is all overfor wales. it will be portugal in the final on sunday. welcome to the end of the month long party. too upset that fringe party, portugal took the time. 109 minutes, to be precise. but the wait for a first major tournament win was over. the
stadium is stunned. kings of europe. portugal. back home, for wales, hopes that this now might begin a new era of success. wales came to the airport and i got my shoe and my book signed. for england, a new era also. but there would be no success. tonight at ten, a significant error ofjudgment tonight at ten, a significant error of judgment means that tonight at ten, a significant error ofjudgment means that sam allardyce is no longer the england football manager. he had been in thejob for just two months. the fa has terminated its contract with immediate effect... so in came gareth southgate, the third manager in as many matches for england. and as the football association continued to recover, above them, fifa we trying to start afresh with a new man in charge of rescuing the damaged reputation of the organisation.
danny willett was not even supposed to be at the us masters, let alone win it, but the early arrival of his baby son are looking to take part. his round finished, he watched on from the courthouse as a jordan spieth collapsed. a quick call to tell his new family that he would be bringing home a very special souvenir. the 2016 us masters champion, danny willett. .. there was a first major winner two at royal troon in the open championship, an astonishing final round from henrik stenson and in the claretjug. in the woman's british open, we are in chana gann became the first major champion from thailand, in fact this was a year of maiden major winners, dustinjohnson was a year of maiden major winners, dustin johnson taking was a year of maiden major winners, dustinjohnson taking the us open andjimmy dustinjohnson taking the us open and jimmy walker securing the pga. all this made for one of the most eagerly anticipated ryder cups in recent memory. raucous, emotionally
charged, as we have come to expect, but, for europe, they could not quite live up to the expectation, a first us triumph since 2008. 2016 was full of success for sporting great, but that still only one who can lay claim to being the greatest. and this was the year we said goodbye. in june, dali and this was the year we said goodbye. injune, dali died at the age of 74. we will not see like again. boxing owes him a great debt, for british fighters and has been some year. they now have a glittering array of world champions. but tyson fury is no longer amongst them, his battles outside of the ring continue. in formula one, lewis hamilton was the defending champion, with his eyes and a fourth world title. the season began in melbourne, and he quickly realise retaining that crown would not be easy. victory for team—mate, nico
rosberg, in the opening race, hamilton second, the town set for the season. by the time they reach barcelona the lead of rosberg was 43 points, on the track they too would be much closer. a crash on that one open the doorfor max be much closer. a crash on that one open the door for max mushtaq tapping, formula one's youngest ever race winner. at silverstone hamilton was out on his own, leading from start to finish, now just start to finish, nowjust one point separated the pair. but in malaysia hamilton's hopes appeared to go up in smoke. so down to the jewel in the desert in abu dhabi. victory for hamilton, but it was not enough to stop nico rosberg winning his first world title. it came just days before his shock retirement. the year in rugby union began as a lwa ys the year in rugby union began as always with a bang, in the six nations tournament, and whilst all teams had their moments, the story of success was built here at the home of english rugby. they had been, a site in crisis, but a new coach, a new captain, and suddenly
they were looking like a new team, and in this tournament, nobody could compete. what they try for england. a glorious grand slam one on foreign shores but built in england. fowler, just the beginning, they had to go to the other side of the world to see just how far they had come. a 3-0 see just how far they had come. a 3—0 whitewash of australia and again the rugby world was taking note, fittingly, it was back at twickenham, against austria, that england completed the flawless year. they have beaten everybody put before them. in the woman six nations, france were crowned champions. whilst in the club game
saracens were all conquering, premiership and champions cup winners, core triumphing in the pro 12. welcome to wembley stadium for one of the showpiece events of the sporting summer. in rugby league 2016 was a year history making achievement and heartbreaking near misses. alessi had famously never won at wembley, ahead, just, against warrington, but they managed to cling on, as the wolves agonisingly it slip. listen to the noise. the black—and—white. warrington did win the league shield, when it really mattered, at the grand final, again, they fell short. just, c, wigan are they fell short. just, c, wigan are the super league champions. the four nations then was there an opportunity to test british rugby league against the game down under, for scotland, the progress continues apace. a draw with new zealand, their greatest ever result. for
england, disappointment. defeat to the kiwis and then eventual winners australia shows the northern hemisphere is still some way behind. england's hearts are being ripped out. for england's cricketers, an eventful yea r. for england's cricketers, an eventful year. an historic series win over south africa, and then against sri lanka, captain, alastair cook, became the youngest batsman ever to 10,000 test runs. series against pakistan, bangladesh, and i, we re against pakistan, bangladesh, and i, were rather less successful, but the real heartbreak came at the world t20, all the way to the final, before falling final hurdle. victory battered from their grasp, carlos brathwaite and the west indies, uncontrollable, ben stokes and england, inconsolable. it was a double for the west indies as they claimed the women's title as well. drama only rivalled by the end of the county championship season. middlesex, winners, and one of the tightest finishes in years. so much
of sport is about getting across the line first. 33/1 shot rule the world lived up to his name, winning the grand national. on—board was teenager, david mullings, proving that even on his 169 running, this great rate is still a couple of fairy tales. there are others for whom crossing that line first is now afamiliar whom crossing that line first is now a familiarfeeling. whom crossing that line first is now a familiar feeling. a third to de france title for chris froome, it feels amazing, i mean, it really could be the first one all over it is just such a special, it isa over it is just such a special, it is a combination of months of hard work, of almighty made, all the support of the team, and what it symbolises, standing in this final podium, on the shamsul user here in paris, it isjust,... it is monumental, such an amazing feeling. but being the first to cross the line is not always everything.
getting to the finish can be a triumph also. 2016 was the year of the 1,000,000th finisher of the london marathon. just a little behindjim imus omron, and elliot chaudhry, who missed the world record by an agonising seven seconds. getting to the end, just, wasjohnny seconds. getting to the end, just, was johnny brownlee. seconds. getting to the end, just, wasjohnny brownlee. the heat of cozumel taking its toll, even on one of sport's very best. being helped toward the line by his brother, alistair, one of the defining images of the. second place, and second place overall in the world triathlon series. but there are some who won't mind being put to the line. just 13 minutes after leicester city won the premier league, another of the city's sons, mark selby, became the world snooker champion. quite a double celebration. even in this crowded year of sport of this corner of south west london remains centrestage, for two summer weeks at least, there history is rich in glory and triumph, still, for the british, wimbledon had remained, for that one, something just to watch and admire. more
recently, and in 2016 in particular, there was so much here to celebrate. the crowds stayed always come, and now with a little added expectation, to go with all that hope. having lost the australian vienna french open finals, andy murray was again the flag bearer for british tennis, but these days he is not quite alone. the brodie on the other side of the net, and the all british vat and the round one, the
signs are encouraging is the result was. and it is a welcome back to this fw 19th for andy murray, straight sets. for murray there would be tougher times ahead, not in round two. for a moment, would be tougher times ahead, not in round two. fora moment, it looked like he was in trouble, but it was only a moment. a tour de force from andy murray. john millman, flawed in straight sets, murray, through to but something far less familiar was happening on court one. there will be no novak djokovic in week two at wimbledon. there was no way chance for andy murray. all he had to do was take it. against nick curiosity thatis was take it. against nick curiosity that is exactly what he did. ruthless, clinical, and he is a quarterfinalist yet again. but if you was making things look simple, the quarterfinal, against a jo wilfred tsonga, was anything there will be no novak djokovic in week two at wimbledon. there was now a chance for andy murray. all he had to do was take it. against nick curiosity that is exactly what he did. ruthless, clinical, and he is a quarterfinalist yet again. but if you was making things look simple, the quarterfinal, againstjo wilfred tsonga, was anything arms raised aloft, another triumph on centre. a five set marathon. thomas berdych in the semifinal proved little obstacle. andy murray in straight sets, a demolitionjob, really. that is sunday afternoon taking care of. the men's singles final is between mule is routledge canada and andy
