it is a good morning. it's sunday, the 8th ofjuly. thank you forjoining us on brea kfast. england's preparing for the world cup semi—finals, after beating sweden 2—0. their semi—final opponents will be croatia, who knocked out the hosts, russia, in a penalty shoot—out last night. here's our sports news correspondent, natalie pirks with a round up of the action. they sang their hearts outjust as the players have ran theirs. but they still had enough in the legs for a party... just as england fans up and down the country were beginning their run. singing in truth, it took a while for drama in samara to materialise. but when england finally upped the tempo, it reaped immediate rewards. commentator: harry maguire got his head to it. if one harry doesn't get you, the other one will! a memorable first international goalfor harry maguire. from the space—inspired cosmos arena,
england had blast off, and a nation rejoiced. for most of the game, dele had looked off the boil. southgate stuck with him. yet again, it was the right call. this is the stuff of dreams from the three lions! just one sweden goal, though, could've turned the game, but they weren't getting past pickford, who seems to grow taller with each second. it's another remarkable save by pickford! as the clock ticked down, this young team kept their calm and composure. a team of grafters are closing in on immortality. not all heroes wear capes. some wear waistcoats. well, eight of these players weren't even born the last time england made a world cup semifinal. just look what it means to them and their fans. they are writing their own history! our togetherness and our mentality is different, we just keep — we'll work hard and recovery
tomorrow and we'll get ready for the next game. this is amazing. it's so exciting! yeah, we've not done it for so long, have we? so this isjust real good. i cannot believe that. that is the best thing i've ever witnessed. i'm following this country all over the world. i love them. fantastic. amazing. come on, england! the fans in samara sang "don't take me home." not just yet, anyway. these boys of summer are giving england a heatwave to remember. natalie pirks, bbc news, samara. wonderful pictures. our moscow correspondent sarah rainsford is in samara where the match took place. i suspect there are one or two england fans wandering around conscious that they may have overindulged last night. yes, a few bleary eyes and saw heads in samara this morning. it was an incredible atmosphere in the stadium as you just saw the and also a great
atmosphere here in town last night. although fingered fans celebrating the moment, 2—0 against sweden. a moment some of them probably didn't dare to dream of before this began. wejoin this morning by neil, he is a pilot in normal life, you bear a striking with them a rather popular man in england. a little bit, few people have been telling me over the years and mr southgate has got into this new position and i thought, well, why not wear the waistcoat and vitae and have a bit of fun? you are working bee looks. it is an extremely popular look. apparently the waistcoat are taking off now. i had to go to some different branches of the store to get one. you do not have the message and prodigious yet, but tell me about the teen comedy performance. iu
fuzzing the chances for your team to bring this home? after the iphone game, who thought we would be in this position? the country is going bonkers. —— iceland. this position? the country is going bonkers. -- iceland. you enjoyed the game, tell us about the atmosphere. it was not. —— nuts. there were some good songs, a carnival atmosphere. after all the years of hurt, like the song goes, who thought we would be here now? very quickly, semifinals, can southgate's team really do it? we got this far, it is open. we were pretending to cheer for russia yesterday, but now it is croatia. let us go for it, france or belgium in the final might be tricky. let us do this. it's coming home! not be real gareth southgate, but the people taking photographs might not know that. as neal was
just saying, a huge amount of hope and expectation on the team. they focus is going to move to moscow and the semifinal and gareth... neill! is hoping with a lot of england fans they can actually get a ticket. my they can actually get a ticket. my favourite moment of the morning, thatis my favourite moment of the morning, that is terrific. gareth, neill, thank you. sarah, thank you. neill is me now. —— made. i have the waistcoat. that is as good as it gets. and it wasn'tjust the 5,000 fans at the cosmos arena in samara that were celebrating last night. a record 30 million viewers were expected to watch the match around the world — pubs were packed, barbecues were burning and towns were tense as people gathered to watch on big screens up and down the country. lots of people got soaked, but i am
not sure that is all water. we'll bring you more world cup reaction throughout the programme, but in other news: further signs of tension within the conservative party have emerged over the prime minister's plan for future relations with the eu agreed by her cabinet on friday. the foreign secretary, borisjohnson, is understood to have used some colourful language at the meeting to criticise the proposal. let's get more detail now from our political correspondent, pete saull who is in our london newsroom. it is interesting, this language that we are all focusing on. it is the tone of that comment. he said polishing a kurd and basically saying a bad deal made to make good. —— polishing a serves. —— turd. no break over the sunshine, as you storm fans gathering over downing street this morning. borisjohnson, we understood was pretty hostile at that meeting on friday to theresa
may's brexit plan, using some fairly disparaging comments as you say to watch out what the prime minister was putting forward. he was talking rabbit of becoming a vassal state and friends of the foreign secretary are saying that he needs to stay in the cabinet to make the case for brexiteers. this idealfit may because yesterday she called for collective responsibility. —— this is not idealfor may. it collective responsibility. —— this is not ideal for may. it seems collective responsibility. —— this is not idealfor may. it seems boris johnson again stepping out of line. michael gove and greg clark on opposite sides of the referendum have written a joint article in the mail on sunday together, brexiteers on backbenches though, a bit noisier with their comments. andrew bridge example says now the time for a new leader to take control of the conservative party. but the moment it seems she has a majority of her mps onside, we might see more dissent coming in the next three days ahead of the publication of the
white paper setting out what was agreed on friday. thank you very much for taking us through that. a wiltshire police officer who was tested for possible exposure to the nerve agent, novichok — has now been released from hospital. the officer was cleared of any contamination. a man and woman are still critically ill after handling a contaminated item which police are still searching for. the substance was used to attack a former russian spy and his daughter in salisbury four months ago. torrential rain in western japan has left 51 people dead and another 50 missing. more than four and a half million people have been told to evacuate their homes, in the face of floods and landslides. japan's prime minister says emergency services are in a race against time to try to save people caught up in some of the devastating flooding. it is 11 minutes past eight. teams of divers have begun a risky operation to rescue the 12 boys who've been trapped with their football coach in a cave in northern thailand
for more than two weeks. the thai authorities decided to act in response to forecasts of heavy rain which could make getting them out even more difficult. let's speak to our correspondent, sophie long who is following events for us. sophie, this rescue attempt has been under way for a few hours but it will be several hours yet before we have any sense of whether it could be successful. that is right, yes, each rescue attempt each boy will take at least 11 hours. now, my fora normal expert diver it takes five hours to get where the boys have been shuttling in the mouth of the cave. for each rescue attempt it will take at least 11 hours. stations along the way where they can rest and be medically assessed and see if they are capable of carrying on but it will be a lengthy operation. it is a race against time, it was felt that the conditions are as good as they are going to get. the guy in charge of the operation is clear this is the war against water. they spent the war against water. they spent
the past week pumping out millions of litres of water from the cave complex, the water levels are now as low as they happen in ten days and the great fear is that with the monsoon rains but forecast, the cave could fill up again and the boys could fill up again and the boys could be in a worse position, potentially than they were in the first place. as you say, it will ta ke first place. as you say, it will take many hours yet before we even see the first body emerge. they know what is going on, that —— before we even what is going on, that —— before we even see what is going on, that —— before we even see the first boy emerge. the country, the world is waiting for them. thank you. updates throughout the day on sophie on the bbc news channel. listening to that was jack crossley, who joins us channel. listening to that was jack crossley, whojoins us now. —— geoff. the mood was not very optimistic, we are now the mood was not very optimistic, we are now in contact with the boys and
some attempt is being made. i think the hand has been forced that the brain is going to come and if you could guarantee that they we re if you could guarantee that they were be safe where they were, you could leave them there that even than they were talking along, long time, three orfour months. it is very different to what you would find over here. we have been told about the oxygen levels hopping, around 21% and the dropping down to around 14%. levels hopping, around 21% and the dropping down to around 1496. that is forcing that hand. yes, it is more the fact that the brain is going to come where they are trapped as likely to flood. —— rain. it is the lesser of two evils in some way. talk to us about the practicalities ofa talk to us about the practicalities of a rescue operation like this. you have been involved in one in the yorkshire dales some years ago. how do you go about trying to get people out? very much so. the incident that we we re very much so. the incident that we were involved in was very similar in some way, smaller scale, where there
are 13 people trapped here, we had to be brought up. it was exactly the same, they were trapped behind a significant portion of flooded passage, 250 metres, and we had to decide whether to leave them there until the water dropped or get them out. as it was, we knew the water was actually coming up, the forecast was actually coming up, the forecast was bad, and we knew the whole cake did blood to the reason we have no alternative but to give them a crash course after getting all the equipment through to them. —— we knew the whole cave would flood to the reef. we managed to give them a crash course and died the casualties out. it isa out. it is a slow operation. could they swim already? some of these boys cannot swim. i do not think it is too much of a problem. if you are underwater, if you are on the floor or following a guideline, underwater, if you are on the floor orfollowing a guideline, all cave days have guideline, it should not be too much of a problem. they will
be too much of a problem. they will be accompanied almost certainly. i would not want especially to much and what is happening down but here, in our incident, we had two divers for each casualty and you were co nsta nt eye for each casualty and you were constant eye contact and ensuring up close to ensure if there was any panic or any problems with the equipment, we could try and do with it as best as we could. in terms of your approach to that rescue, was it not until you got to the very end, they were both out and find, that you were confident that that would be the outcome? was the essence of jeopardy? that would be the outcome? was the essence ofjeopardy? there are so many things can wrong. there are a lot of things that can go wrong. it is a specialised area, cave diving. it is not, there are very few people actually do it. so, you have always got that one the other non—diver who might panic i might lose control, so, to be honest, when we did that particular
rescue, we were worried that we would not get them both out. did you tell them that? no, no, you have to be very positive all the time. and give them the best opportunity you can, but certainly it is a worry, it isa can, but certainly it is a worry, it is a worry when you are diving somebody out. spare a thought for the divers as well because not only... we have had a tragedy with one of the volunteers, an ex—navy diver who died earlier this week. that brings it home. brings home exactly how dangerous prisoners. —— how dangerous prisoners. —— how dangerous this is. cave diving is not really bad remit, they have done a fantasticjob out there in circumstances that must be very difficult for them. let us hope they succeed with bringing them out. they have got the best guys possible from our country over there. i am
confident that they will be doing what they can. let's hope your confidence is well might as well because we will be hearing from sophie, she will be updating everyone on the news channel throughout the day. thank you. you are welcome. it is 17 minutes past eight. time for a look at the weather. is it almost a bit groundhog day for you? if you have got whether thesaurus and you can find new words for dry, sunny and hot, send it my way any viewers, send us any new ways to tell the story. yes, a bit groundhog day, there is more of the same. but that is not necessarily a bad thing because if you like sunshine, like the way the day had started on the east sussex coast. plenty more dry and hot weather to come to the day ahead, some strong sunshine, but not quite as straightforward as that for all of us because we do have this little
weather front ending its way across the north—west of scotland, bringing more in the way of cloud. if you spots of rain with this cloud. certainly not much rain for the goblins or anything like that. you can see from the picture the wave that scotland are starting off with the way of cloud. —— not much rain for the gardens. long studies on time to dig through the morning and honour to the afternoon. where we are honour to the afternoon. where we a re closest honour to the afternoon. where we are closest to the weather front across the north west of scotland, the odd spot of drizzle but the eastern and southern scotland, there will be some spells of sunshine, 24 in aberdeen. northern ireland, a patch of cloud and sunny spells. far south of sunshine, 24 in aberdeen. northern ireland, a patch of cloud and sunny spells. faster south of scotland, far north of england, a small chance of an down towards these doctors, sunny weather. temperatures as high as 32. we are expecting today to shape up as silverstone for the british grand prix. lots of sunshine overhead,
temperatures up to 29 or 30. it is going to stay warm as we head onto the evening, some late sunshine to be had but our weatherfront the evening, some late sunshine to be had but our weather front still lingering and meandering its way across the north of scotland and then bending its way down the east coast, eastern scotland, north—east scotla nd coast, eastern scotland, north—east scotland quite cloudy through the night. wrap the odd spot of drizzle, another warm and humid night. 12 — 18 is the minimum. high pressure in charge of the scene tomorrow, following the progress of this weather front, bringing following the progress of this weatherfront, bringing some following the progress of this weather front, bringing some extra cloud and bringing some cooler air during tomorrow, squashing the hot weather or the holders of the whether any way down into southern parts of the uk. it will not be cold by any means across the north, a bit more cloud spelling, the odd spot of drizzle. the cloud drifting south and west throughout the day, still some spells of sunshine. take a look at the temperatures, deep orange colour is done in the south. likely to get up 29 or 30. a little bit
cooler north. the cooler weather will think a little bit further throughout the week but it stays dry, they will be some sunshine and those temperatures climb again by the end of the week. more of the same. we will think of some sunshine acronyms and give you down in the next half—hour. let's return to our top story now — england are in the semi—finals of the world cup for the first time in 28 years. the last time they got this far was in italy in 1990, when they defeated cameroon 3—2. it was quite a night in naples. you are on one, our seats are reserved in the world cup grandstand. music: nessun dorma i know you are getting the hang of the tune. good evening, welcome to naples on a hot and sultry night for england against cameroon. how much do you know about cameroon?
i was very impressed with them against argentina and romania. and roger milla has been brought back into the side. the whole team expect us to go outside and beat them five on six, if we do, fine. the mood is great, the lads are very happy, it's a beautiful place. i understand back home in england that, you know, the streets are singing and the avenues are dancing. four years on from the quarterfinal of maradona's deception, england enter maradona's den. there's a name to be made here, that's for sure. in comes lineker and scores! england lead by 3—2. last chance for cameroon. the referee looks at his watch. england are in the semifinal! we have all aged ten years! let's go back to des. well, i suppose is enjoyment, this. i hope you have enjoyed it. but england are there, their first semifinal since they won it back in 1966. cheerio from all of us here in naples.
excitement, how many of us who are this morning. —— are feeling this morning. well, we can speak to one man who was there that very night — tony dorigo, member of the 1990 england squad, hejoins us now from our leeds newsroom. how are you feeling? are you getting flashbacks of that excitement you had in 1990? absolutely. i am very excited. brings back a lot of memories as well, some good ones and lots of good ones. we got very, very close to doing something extreme especial. we do not quite manage it, the game yesterday, watching that, proud of the england boys, i thought they played magnificently. what an opportunity, like everyone else, excited. how do you deal with those nerves? as pa rt of how do you deal with those nerves? as part of the squad, you knew the country back home, what they were thinking, how the fans were feeling,
how did you deal with that pressure asa how did you deal with that pressure as a squad? it is increasingly certainly in this day and age, the pressure is absolutely huge. i think with social media as well, that much closer. we we re very media as well, that much closer. we were very much locked away as a group and made sure that we recovered, that is the first thing, then prepared well. but trying to keep calm is difficult and i think that this state of the tournament as well you just want to get on, play the next game, but you have to wait those three or four days of training and going through tactics, very long period. they will be excited, they will be trying to keep calm as well. but i do think the atmosphere, certainly be attitude around the squad, this one particular squad in particular, has been very impressive. so much credit being given to gareth southgate as well or how he is leading this young team, much exposure in terms of social media and dealing with that as well as putting in amateur performance on
the pitch. —— a mature performance. they have handed —— handled it very well. a close knit group, relax. i remember my time with england over the years becoming completely relaxed was quite difficult. feeling —— dealing with the press, i think they've handled it very well. it is about results on the pitch. their attitude and the detail that southgate has gone into her is getting results. 0k, what do you do now getting results. 0k, what do you do now in terms of when you are excited or optimistic for england? has the tea m or optimistic for england? has the team been tested so far? that is the question. are we doing, they make very clear you do not underestimate sweden, but the team, it was not easy, but it wasn't difficult. you say that. it wasn't difficult. i
think every single game that they have play at the world cup is extremely difficult. you have got to remember the team you are playing against, this is a huge opportunity and they are going to give everything. we have the handle different sort of situations, intimidation by some teams like panama. sweden, the resoluteness of their side. i think every game has been a different challenge. they have risen to the challenge. i think they deserved their win each and every time. the belgian game is the second site, which i do ignore that, the next game, croatia, there's nothing to be frightened of. i think the way they have played, the way they have reacted, i think they are looking really good. they are confident. they are young, almost naive and away, but they are bad success together and not many failures do they know about this group of players. —— they have had success. they are going to get tested in the semifinal of the world
cup, so they should. i think they are more other match, i really do. it is very easy to be an armchair fa ntasy it is very easy to be an armchair fantasy it is not difficult. thank you forjoining us. we all knew we were going to get to the semifinal, a walk in the park. it is 27 minutes past eight. you're watching breakfast from bbc news, technology expert dan sodergren is here to tell us what's caught his eye. good morning. shall we head into the inside pages? an app for the heart. yes, this is a world first, i think, but as well. a fantastic idea of you've got this application that links to pacemakers and sends the reports to the doctors remotely. it isa reports to the doctors remotely. it is a billing idea where you can use technology to help people and that
is what i am all about, how can we use technology. a couple of people in southampton and so, well says. amazing what you can do with health technology these days. a great new world we are going to be going into when... as long as it does not panic them. i love that you can have this incident response they can go back to the doctors. always the text theme when you are reviewing the papers, we head to the observer, and i guess this is the essence of the kind of comedy business argument around all things tech and the global race that is on to be at the forefront of it with china, according to this piece, racing ahead of europe. that is the thing, if we look at this of the next bit, before the industrial revolution, artificial intelligence and apps and mobile, all these different things, the government and other people have to start putting more money behind it. you look at the chinese government, they have
$15 billion in the chinese medicine group in their tech fund, that is nothing compared to another tech group which is $100 billion. —— chinese merchant group. the next equivalent of a facebook founder and make your billions? government has a role to play, back in the day with industrial revolutions, i think the government has to get behind it if we want to start winning the race. i think that will be key. it cannot just will be key. it cannotjust be the private sector that are doing it. this piece in the observer, looking at the high street, saying many of the stories we are hearing about stores closing, retail is struggling, traditional names, because they have outdated formats. it is to do with the digital economy and that is brilliant news for some, we've had this revolution and the fa ct we we've had this revolution and the fact we have apps on mobile, e—commerce, however other companies like marks & spencer is an more
traditional companies have to pay business rates, etc, are starting to lose out. the big thing for me is the amount of tax that they have to pgy- the amount of tax that they have to pay. i think it is something like ten times the amount of tax but marks & spencer ‘s are paying compared to amazon. because they have property. what this piece is saying is maybe introduce an online sales tax and they were saying even if it was just 1%, you would add another £5 billion into the coffers. that could then be put into attack fund. —— the technical fund. lots of businesses saying hold on a minute, talking about business rates, it is not really that if you've got these old school buildings. lots of them and of a sudden you have got these things, amazon aren't necessarily paying their way and neither are some of their way and neither are some of the bigger tech giants. there can be a really good way of levelling the playing field. philip hammond, the chancellor has said he is making
progress with plans to find a better way to tax the digital economy. ina in a couple of sentences, with double page spread of exercise for the brain. maybe wejust double page spread of exercise for the brain. maybe we just don't need technology, we can do it the old—fashioned way with fasting diet and maybe using the mediterranean diet to help things like type two diabetes and reverse that, it is costing the nhs ben wright £10 billion per year, type two diabetes, and this is not only could you help type two diabetes but also things like dementia, so you might not need technology, just good old—fashioned better food. sam allan pawn fish pie with sliced tomato crust, sounds good but not for breakfast. i could eat anything for breakfast! thank you forjoining us. stay with us, the news summary is coming up. hello, this is breakfast with chris mason and naga munchetty. it is 8:32am.
here's a summary of this morning's main news. england's preparing for the world cup semifinals, after beating sweden yesterday. the 2—0 victory sent fans into raptures and left the team only one match away from their first appearance in a world cup final since 1966. their semifinal opponents will be croatia, who knocked out the hosts, russia, in a penalty shoot—out last night. more than an hour after the match finished, england manager gareth southgate went on to the pitch to thank the england fans who had stayed behind in the stadium to applaud the players. he was seen conducting his choir as they chanted their admiration for him and the players, who could well go down in english football history. # you still turn me on # football's coming home again # one, two, three, four! indistinct chanting. and gareth southgate wasn't the only one to celebrate with a song...
i think you're going to be hearing a lot of that! this band of the guards division played a special rendition of three lions on the forecourt of buckingham palace. the video was shared by the official british army facebook page — the post said, "the troops are used to stepping forward to serve their country. this makes today s gesture of unwavering support to the england team particularly fitting". in other news this morning. an attempt has begun to rescue the 12 young footballers who've been trapped with their coach in a cave in northern thailand for more than two weeks. the thai authorities decided to act amid forecasts of more heavy rain, which could further flood the underground complex. further signs of tension within the conservative party have emerged over the prime minister's plan for future relations with the eu which was agreed by her cabinet on friday. the foreign secretary borisjohnson is understood to have used colourful language at the meeting to criticise the proposal before later giving it his backing. critics say the plan would be "unworkable" and could cost
the conservatives the next election. however, theresa may says it will ensure brexit is delivered. a wiltshire police officer who was tested for possible exposure to the nerve agent novichok has now been released from hospital. the officer was cleared of any contamination. a man and woman are still critically ill after handling a contaminated item, which police are still searching for. the substance was used to attack a former russian spy and his daughter in salisbury four months ago. donald trump's visit to the uk this week will put "unquestionable pressure" on forces — that's according to the police federation. the american president will spend time in london and windsor during the two—day working visit. thousands are expected to protest and forces from across the country have been asked to send officers to assist. the home office said other forces can be "recompensed by the hosting force". it is 8:35am. you will notice we are
celebrating england and you are doing your heart marge to gareth southgate. my patriotically deep. we have encouraged people to carry on doing that and john read the memo as well. i've got my scissors out, i felt left out so i have cut out and keep gareth southgate waistcoat. the sellotape is a good look. thank you, i appreciate that. i think if you had stuck it under the jacket. nothing is ever good enough. were you told you've got to keep it on night and day until wednesday?m you told you've got to keep it on night and day until wednesday? it is for luck. england are through to the semifinals of the world cup, yes! keyword streaming last night, it is true and they are back at their base. —— you were not dreaming last night. our sports correspondant david ornstein is at the england training base in repino... incredible scenes, what is it like
there this morning? no waistcoat but we are paying tribute to england and the ways they are making in the competition with our live location, a short distance from the hotel where england arrived back last night. they won't be trading today but recuperating behind closed doors, no media activity. minds are now very doors, no media activity. minds are now very much on the task ahead, that crucial semifinal and an opportunity of a lifetime in moscow against croatia on wednesday evening. shall we take a look back at the action from yesterday? why not? england opening the scoring with harry maguire. they have become seppi specialist at the world cup, no other country has scored more and england struck again with the eighth of the competition, harry maguire's first international goal, queueing wild celebrations in russia and back home as england got one foot in the last four. jordan pickford, the goalkeeper, helped maintain the lead with a brilliant save and then at the other end, england made it two,
dele alli nodding in the back post, finally announcing himself at the world cup after struggles with form and fitness but wrapping the win up in some style. gareth southgate afterwards was quick to pay tribute not only to the starting 11 but the entire 23. i can't speak highly enough of the whole squad and the whole group of staff because it is so whole group of staff because it is so united and their level of work has been great. their commitment to each other, you don't get through withjust 11 each other, you don't get through with just 11 players and each other, you don't get through withjust 11 players and some of the guys have not had a lot of time on the pitch but their mentality of training, people like philjones, gary cahill, danny welbeck, top people. so full training resumes tomorrow. england will then have one final session on tuesday morning before taking the short flight over to moscow and setting themselves up ahead of this match, which the nation will be glued to. what an opportunity, the first world cup
semifinal since 1990, aiming to reach the first final since 1966. thanks, david. don't stay that! i don't know if my nerves can take it. loads of reaction from the players on social media — jesse lingard's been very active online during the world cup. after the colombia win in the last 16, he posted a picture of himself on the phone telling his mum that he'll be staying in russia a while longer. and after the win over sweden, he shared this video saying "because i said we're not coming home, she came here!" she surprised at the end of the game, isn't that lovely?|j she surprised at the end of the game, isn't that lovely? i love your high—pitched, "look!" game, isn't that lovely? i love your high-pitched, "look!" look, she's there! i'm still so excited. what will you be like on thursday?|j will you be like on thursday?” know, goodness me. it all got a bit much for one former england international. have a listen to this reaction from chris waddle who was speaking to kelly cates on bbc radio 5 live. chris, how does it feel to watch another england squad reach that stage? kelly, it's just unbelievable.
i couldn't believe i would witness this. it's quite emotional, actually... really, chris? do you feel it that much? chris, we'll come back to you. we'll let you settle down, let you gather your thoughts. it's all too much for chris waddle as well! standing between england and a place in the world cup final is croatia after they knocked out hosts russia on penalties. it finished 2—2 after extra time in sochi with russia grabbing a late equaliser. both teams had already won a penalty shoot—out to reach this stage, but fedor smolov missed the first for russia meaning they were relying on croatia doing the same. they missed one more each, so it was left to barcelona's ivan rakitic to send them through to the semifinal against england on wednesday. not all good news for english sport
yesterday. britain's kyle edmund has been knocked out of wimbledon in the third round against novak djokovic. after making a good start, winning the opening set, edmund was soon reminded of why djokovic‘s been so successful at wimbledon in the past, as the three—time champion took the next three sets to end edmund's hopes of wimbledon glory this year. elsewhere at wimbledon, rafael nadal is through. the two—time wimbledon champion is into the last 16 after a comfortable victory over australia's alex de minaur. he'll play the czechjiri vesely in the next round. the latest big name to fall in the women's draw is world number one and top seed simona halep. the french open champion was beaten by taiwan's shai zsuwei in an epic 3rd round match. lewis hamilton will start this afternoon's british grand prix in pole position — chasing a record sixth win at silverstone. he logged a lap record on his final run in qualifying to start in front of his main championship rival
sebastian vettel. he said he wanted to get the country off to a good start as qualifying finished just as the football started! chris froome will be hoping for a less eventful second day at the tour de france after a crash has left him a minute off the pace. he went down a grass bank on the opening stage as colombia's fernando gaviria won the stage. today's route should be another one for the sprinters. england's women's cricketers thrashed new zealand to win their opening one—day international. amyjones and captain heather knight each made 63 at headingley before new zealand were bowled out forjust 148 runs. the second game of the three—match series is at derby on tuesday. it's coming home! how comfortable is that waistcoat? you fixed it now, it looks great. it is nice and cool for this kind of weather, too. speak for yourself, this one is getting a bit
sweaty, a few hours in. thank you for joining sweaty, a few hours in. thank you forjoining us. calmed down now! prepare for wednesday. it is 8:42am. roberta borsotti would routinely wipe tears from her daughter's face because she was so upset about being forced to wear a skirt to school. after three years, she managed to get the dress code policy changed. now, she's fighting to change the guidelines for the rest of england. roberta joins us from our london newsroom and here in the studio were joined by susannah mcshane, a primary school head teacher from wirral. thank you forjoining us. . roberto, how is your daughter now? what has changed? she is much happier now. yes. since she was able to wear shorts, she is a lot happier and smiling. during the years that she was unhappy about the uniform policy, she was never quite able to
verbalise why she didn't like dresses or skirts but the other day, she came home and said, "mummy, now ican she came home and said, "mummy, now i can play without thinking about my clothes". i think thatjust gave her, you know, a free mind to play without having to worry about her dress getting caught in something or her underwear being one show. she's just much happier, compared to what she has been through in the past three years. susanna, uri headteacher at a different school. talk us through how you manage situations like this or what it says if you have a policy around uniform. yeah, so i'm very proud to say we have a non—gender discriminatory policy and that is something that has evolved with the change in the need of our children. we received non—statutory guidance... need of our children. we received non-statutory guidance... in other words, it's your decision? it is and they explain that in the 2013...
words, it's your decision? it is and they explain that in the 2013. .. the department for education. yeah, sorry, in their guidance, they specify school should strongly consider the following recommendations, when revising a school uniform policy. so schools then have a duty to translate that locally so they would use the information that they are given, consult with the governors and the main stakeholders, primarily the pupils, who are wearing the uniform and the parents who are paying for them and then it is launched or the change is reviewed and the children wearthem. change is reviewed and the children wear them. so boys can wear skirts and girls can wear trousers or short. children have a choice, yes, and that's the main thing because for me, a child needs to be able to learn. as of yet, i've not come across boys who have elected to wear skirts as part of uniform. they may well have warned other skirts on top of their uniforms as part of
role—play of their uniforms as part of role— play or of their uniforms as part of role—play or dress, should they choose. but i think because of our ever evolving society and changes, we need to be able to accommodate that as a school but we also have to have the balance of uniform policy, tradition, and what the governors expect from uniform as well. roberto, what do you want to do next because when we introduced the discussion, you said you are keen to change the policy across england. what would you like to see? yes, basically, since i've been involved in this issue with my daughter, i found out there are several parents that are fighting schools for the uniform policy that are so inflexible and restrictive. they have been in —— i've been in touch with a lady that had the same fight i had 18 years ago. it seems that not much progress has been done. because we put so much effort into this, we thought it would be wasted
and that if we just dropped the case now, with my school having changed the policy, so what we would like to do is solve the issue once and for all, and i've asked the department for education to update the guidance on school policy to make it more in line with the equalities act. the legal team that i have been working with think that it is falling short of that. the department for education has on the occasions we have contacted them, said they don't think there's an issue with the guidance as it stands so i think it is for thejudge, guidance as it stands so i think it is forthejudge, hopefully, guidance as it stands so i think it is for thejudge, hopefully, to decide and establish that such an inflexible and restrictive uniform policies are discriminating on the basis of gender. you know, it needs to be looked at, whether the current guidance goes far enough to take into account the equalities act. 0k.
thank you forjoining us. we really appreciate it. you can hear more from roberta on sunday morning live at 10am on bbc one. this is where we must part but you are going to read the news for andrew marr. waistcoat on. very smart. we will say hello to bed before we go because he was having problems. looking at the thesaurus because of the number of times you had to use the word sunshine in the last couple of weeks and we've been doing a search for the last few minutes and there are not that many options. there really aren't. we are keen to hear about the luminosity, ben. and perhaps a bit of visible radiation, much of that about today? a highly luminous visible radiation around today. you know what, put the thesaurus back on the shelf because i don't think it helps very much. to
be honest, what we want to talk about is a day of blue sky and sunshine because for many of us, thatis sunshine because for many of us, that is exactly what we are getting. what a gorgeous start for one about weather watchers in cornwall and that sums it up for most of us, dry and what with strong sunshine. however there is something else to talk about, some slightly cooler air pushing its way towards the north—west of the country behind this weather front. it will bring the odd spot of rain and certainly more cloud as you can see from the satellite into north—west scotland, a bit of patchy cloud across central and southern scotland and northern ireland, fringing into northern england but breaking up to give spells sunshine as well. the further south you are across england and wales, it is a story of sunny skies for a good part of the day and some patchy fairweather clad developing. at the other end of the country, north—west scotland will have some thicker cloud, maybe the odd spot of drizzle and a bit cooler. eastern and southern scotland with sunny spells and northern ireland, just a small chance of an outdated shower for southern scotland and northern
england this afternoon. —— isolated shower. through the midlands, east anglia, wales and the south coast, long spells of sunshine, temperatures of 31 or 32, if you like vilhete, i think you will like this afternoon and that is the story at silverstone, blue skies ever had the most part, temperatures 29—30 four the british grand prix so hot out on the track and for spectators. this evening and night, plain sailing, clear spells for many but the extra clout and the weather front in the north will start to drift across the east coast so eastern scotland and north east england turning cloudy night, maybe the odd spot of drizzle but nothing much more for the garden. another warm and muggy night as well. tomorrow we catch up on the progress of the weather front, by this stage tomorrow morning, just sliding down the east coast, eastern scotland, north—east england and a bit more cloud but what it will do because there is cooler air behind it, it will squash the hottest weather down
towards the south which is where we will have the best of the sunshine in southern and western parts of the uk. further east, a bit more cloud and the odd spot of drizzle for a time and temperatures across northern area is beginning to drop away, slightly lighter shades on the chart but down towards the south once again, we could get very close to 30 degrees. more of the same, plenty more sunshine in the next few days. and ui luminous two. lots of luminosity. we are loving the luminosity. we are loving the luminosity love. thanks, ben. president trump visits the uk this week. the two—day working trip has been downgraded from what was intended to have been a state visit. it's set to attract headlines while thousands are expected to protest and police forces from across the country have been asked to send officers to assist. let's talk about this in more detail with professor trevor mccrisken who specialises in us foreign policy. good morning, what do you make of
the downgrading of the state visit? it will be a lot of focus for protesters, certainly, they're going to trying to find out where donald trump is around the country and show that they really don't like this president, they think he is not the kind of individual that should be in office and a lot of things he says and does they really don't like. but it looks like now we see the schedule that the authorities are going to try to keep him as away from the public as possible. what is the advantage of the trip? what are the advantage of the trip? what are the benefits of the trip? for theresa may, she sees any us president as important in the uk because of the so—called special relationship. she's obviously looking across the atlantic now with things not exactly going well in the brexit negotiations, etc, and thinks having that relationship with the us is very important for britain. the problem of course is that associating yourself with someone who is as unpopular as the president of the united states and so controversial in the things that he
says the policy positions he is taking, not least ever immigration but also international relations around the iran deal and even his negotiations with north korea are maybe not as positive in some ways as we might have expected they were going to be. it is an association which is not going to give her the kind of benefits that may be previous uk prime minister ‘s have had by sidling up to us president. what are the benefits and advantages for him being here, if he is now avoiding a lot of the public because of the obvious protests? again, i think the relationship with britain for quite a lot of people in the us is taken quite seriously. it is an opportunity to be with the prime minister, who, because she does have theseissues minister, who, because she does have these issues in europe, etc, with her own domestic situation, is looking across to trump to be a friend and have a closer association with the us. he has not got that many friends internationally at the moment so he will be coming off the
back of a nato summit where he will get a lot of criticism, probably, from other heads of state that nato members. he may come out of a very difficult nato summit so having a couple of days where he's having some nice dinner than playing golf in scotland and meeting the queen and having some photo opportunities, as long as he can stay away from the protesters and the media focuses more on what he's doing with those individuals rather than what people on the streets are saying or the trump balloon flying over westminster, that potentially gives some good images back home that he can utilise. but again, it is kind of sandwich between two bigger, more important meetings, the nato summit is very important and then he's going to meet with vladimir putin. it is almost like it has been squeezed in. it's going to be a very well orchestrated visit i imagine. thank you forjoining us. did i met in that england have made it to the semifinals of the world cup for the first time in 28 years?
