9:30 am
from the government after sending texts of a sexual nature to two female constituents. it's the world cup final this afternoon, with france the favourites to win against croatia in moscow. and in the wimbledon men's final, novak djokavic is set to face kevin anderson on centre court. here's the man who knows all about those stories, it's ben crouch at the bbc sports centre. good morning to you, ben. good morning. angelique kerber said it was always her dream to lift the wimbledon trophy. well, this morning she can raise it to her heart's content after becoming the first german since steffi graf in 1996 to win the women's singles title. she ended the fairy tale comeback of serena williams with some impressive defensive tennis on centre court. it was a repeat of the 2016 final that kerber lost, but after taking the first set 6—3, she took the second by the same scoreline for her third grand slam title. she has only the french open to win to complete the set.
9:31 am
you know, at the end, i was starting to get quite nervous. i knew i had to take my first chance, because you never know with her, she fights until the last one. and, yeah, i think it's just amazing. i cannot describe this feeling. because, when i was a kid, i was always dreaming of this moment. and to win wimbledon, it's something really special in my career. it was a great opportunity for me. you know, i didn't know a couple of months ago where i was, where i would be, how i would do, how i could come back. it was such a long way to see light at the end of the road, kind of. and so i think these two weeks have really showed me that, 0k, i can compete, obviously i can compete for the long—run in a grand slam. jamie murray is in the mixed doubles final today, hoping to emulate the feats of gordon reid and alfie hewett, who took a third straight title
9:32 am
in the wheelchair doubles. lucy shuker will take part in the mixed doubles final later today, too. and so, 2pm this afternoon, before the football begins, it'll be all eyes on novak djokovic and kevin anderson in the men's doubles final. both came through the longest semi—finals in wimbledon history to make it this far. djokovic outlasted rafa nadal in a match split over two days before prevailing 10—8 in the final set. he says he doesn't have much to lose as he chases a 13th major title. anderson, playing in his second grand slam final, says he knows what to expect this time around. on the subject on marathon semi—finals, this was jack draper in the boys' event. he needed ten match points against colombia's nicolas mejia before winning 19—17 in the final set. the 16—year—old will play top seed chun hsin tseng on court number one today. in a couple of hours, england will fly home after five weeks in russia that exceeded expectatations. they matched the run at italia 90 afterfinishing fourth, beaten 2—0 by belgium
9:33 am
in the third—place play—off yesterday. with more on that match and a look ahead to today's final between france and croatia, here's david ornstein. this isn't how england hoped it would end, though as the dust settles, they will reflect on a remarkable journey that should help positively shape the future of the national sport. in a game neither side really wanted to be playing but both hope to win, belgium were quick to showcase their devastating attacking ability. harry kane squandered a fine opportunity to equalise, and after half—time, eric dier looked certain to score, until toby alderweireld intervened. jordan pickford kept england in contention, only for the mercurial eden hazard to expertly seal the win. a bronze medalfor the so—called golden generation, their best—ever world cup placing.
9:34 am
the lads gave it everything, you know. it's not the way we wanted to finish, but it shows that we've still got room for improvement, we've still got a lot to learn. but it's been a great tournament for us. ultimately, then, it is disappointment for england who depart russia wondering what might have been, yet their overall performance, their sense of joy and a reconnection with their long—suffering supporters suggests that success might not be too far away. today, the attention turns to moscow, where football's biggest prize is to be decided. france are firm favourites, but at the culmination of a competition that's been full of surprises, croatia will try to cause one last upset. david ornstein, bbc news, st petersburg. and you can follow that match wherever you are this afternoon. bbc one from 3pm, as well as commentary on five live, and all on the bbc sport website, too. couple of other lines of football news to bring you, and eden hazard has dropped the biggest hint yet that he might
9:35 am
leave chelsea this summer. hazard scored in that 2—0 win over england yesterday, and has made no secret of his desire to play for real madrid one day. the 27—year—old says "it might be time to discover something different" after six years at stamford bridge. and wayne rooney made his debut for dc united overnight. he came off the bench in the second half, and they beat the vancouver whiteca ps 3—1 in the mls. loads of clubs are now well into their preseason friendlies, but there won't be many as easy as this one. everton walloped austrian side atv irdning 22—0. the pick of the goals was an own goal — it was a beauty, too. by the time they got to scoring their 20th goal, the opposing keeper had given up. nicola vlasic with the simplest goal he'll score in his whole career. a good start for new boss marco silva. much sterner tests to come, though. england captain eoin morgan says it's important his side take
9:36 am
the momentum into their next match in leeds, after squaring the one—day series with india at 1—1. it was a fine performance from england at lord's yesterday. joe root scoring a century in the process. and the chase always proved too tricky for india. i—i process. and the chase always proved too tricky for india. 1—1 as they head to headingley. it was a fabulous effort to sort of get to where we did, but i think, ultimately, our bowlers were outstanding to back that up. and as i've said previously, the conditions might have slightly favoured us today. but, you know, we were ruthless and we took that opportunity and, you know, the scoreline is a fair reflection of that, i think. today is the day when the tour de france really comes to life, with the main contenders challenging over 22 kilometres of cobbles into roubaix. today is the day when the tour de france really comes to life, with the main contenders challenging over 22 kilometres of
9:37 am
cobbles into roubaix. the overall standings could quite literally be shaken up. so the sprinters will be thankful they got the chance for the stage win on saturday. dutchman dylan groenewegan took his second in a row, with mark cavendish at eight. geraint thomas remains second, and could well take the leader's yellow jersey later today. this time next week, the open at carnoustie will be coming to a close, and the final warm—up event, the scottish open, has plenty of british interest at the top of the leaderboard. england's matt fitzpatrick is after a bogey—free round of 64 left him on i2—under—par. that's just a shot behind the leader, sweden'sjens dantorp. russel knox, aaron rai and tyrell hatton are just two behind him. jonny brownlee finished fourth on his return to racing on the world triathlon series in hamburg. after struggling with injury this season, brownlee led off the bike, but was edged off the podium as spain's mario mola took the win. france's cassandre beaugrand took the women's race. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, here's the papers. hello, and welcome to our sunday
9:38 am
morning paper review. with me are james rampton, features writer for the independent. and peter conradi, foreign editor at the sunday times. let's take a look at the front pages. welcome to both of you, just to have you —— did to have you with us. let's bring you up to date with what is in the papers today. the observer leads with claims of a cross—party consensus on theresa may's brexit plans, with the labour peer lord mandelson saying the current blueprint would lead to " national humiliation". the paper also carries a picture of serena williams congratulating her opponent, angelique kerber, on her victory in the wimbledon final. brexit also the lead for the sunday express, with claims borisjohnson is preparing what it calls a "bombshell" resignation speech. the telegraph leads on an interview with a former government minister over his decision to resign because of the prime minister's brexit plans, but also carries a picture of the duchesses of cambridge and sussex enjoying an afternoon at wimbledon.
9:39 am
the sunday times claims princes william and charles didn't want to meet donald trump on his uk visit, with a source describing it as a "snub". the sunday mirror breaks the story which forced the resignation of business minister andrew griffiths. the burton and uttoxeter mp said he was ashamed and sorry after sending more than 2,000 inappropriate texts to female constituents. and the mail on sunday looks ahead to piers morgan's interview with donald trump, claiming the president reveals the queen's view of the eu. so, a variety of stories for the sunday papers, but after a turbulent week in british politics, no real surprise that brexit makes an appearance on a number of front pages. let's plunge straight in with the daily mail. its crisis time for the prime minister, you can tell that, because she is in another studio in this building urging her mps... our viewers will be switching over, don't tell them! we will be
9:40 am
absolutely done for! but i think it's very interesting that she's launching this pr offensive. it shows, a game, today's crisis is, you know, predicted to be the record—brea ker you know, predicted to be the record—breaker for mrs you know, predicted to be the record—brea ker for mrs may. but you know, predicted to be the record—breaker for mrs may. but i think there's a lot of interesting detail in this piece in the daily mail, particularly buried right down in the bottom," from lord's by sir, —— a quote from lord spicer, saying it may be time for the conservative party to split into two. that is a remarkable admission and it's really something that has haunted the tories since the days of mrs thatcher and her no, no, tories since the days of mrs thatcherand her no, no, no, tories since the days of mrs thatcher and her no, no, no, to jacques delors and thenjohn major swearing about the people in his cabinet, it did for david cameron in the end. michael howard, iain duncan smith, william hague, you name it, they've all been brought down by europe. and this idea that they may be split into two, and of course that was cameron's great hope, that the referendum would unite the tory
9:41 am
party, kill off ukip and bring those right—wingers back into the fold, now right—wingers are saying, well, no, maybe we do need a separate part because mrs may has sold out. it's intriguing, lord spicer, so michael spicer, it used to chair the 1922 committee a loyalist, if at the right, but pretty much kind of solidly in support of the party —— a thatcher right. is this a peel moment? jacob rees—mogg has talked about this. he said robert peel took eight ounce against his party and split his party —— took a stand against his party. we had a neutral party and a liberal party founded. the this be happening all over again was blocked the shadows of the mid—19th was blocked the shadows of the mid-19th century, it was over free trade and protect those them. they're running feruz well —— and protectionism. ultimately peel did do the right thing. going through history, peel was for free trade and
9:42 am
britain's prosperity in the late victorian era was very much built on that. but it did considerable temporary damage to the tory party, which was out of power for a couple of decades. what did you make of the article that theresa may has written in the mail herself? she says, this is the time to be practical and pragmatic. it seems to be a message sent to both wings of her party, those who say, no, we want to have a much stronger relationship and maintaina much stronger relationship and maintain a strong relationship with the european union, and those who would prefer to look to the world beyond europe, even though effectively she is saying, we want to have both? she would say that cool when she! —— she would say that, when she?! she is, to paraphrase... ina that, when she?! she is, to paraphrase... in a sense, she is trying to plough a centre course. she has got the hard brexit people oi'i she has got the hard brexit people on one she has got the hard brexit people on one side, the remainers who do not want a brexit at all on the other side, and she has got the
9:43 am
saubers compromise. and the problem, i suppose, —— to sell this compromise. the problem is to be tough in selling this compromise. she has had donald trump a couple of days ago suggesting that she wouldn't be very tough, or he would have done things in a much tough away. then we get quotes from her saying, it is a plan with a set of outcomes that are non—negotiable. which is going to be a bit of a problem if she's going into negotiations! i was very struck by that. but she said, the outcomes are non—negotiable, but not that the way to get outcomes are non—negotiable. it's hard to believe she would go to saying, it's this or nothing. it's hard to believe she would go to saying, it's this or nothinglj think she is. i hate to say this, i do actually feel sorry for her. because it's an impossible position that she's in. both sides of typing at her, labour is not playing ball. even peter mandelson, as we are going to discuss, has turned against her deal saying that he no deal
9:44 am
would be better. so, she is com pletely would be better. so, she is completely kidnapped by this situation. there's no way out. and, you know, i don't think she's an incredibly charismatic or inspirational leader. that's a controversial thing! very, inspirational leader. that's a controversialthing! very, very controversial, but she is competent, but she is trying to get something done. i'm certainly not a tory, but she is trying to get something done against impossible odds and ijust don't see how it's going to be resolved. the trade bill, they are saying it's the latest watershed moment. labour are not playing ball, lots of watersheds in a robe. whatever the collective noun of watershed is, a pile! so will watersheds in a row. parisjohnson is starting the telegraph columnist tomorrow and will no be lambasting her in that —— borisjohnson. even president trump is criticising her for not being brutal enough, on the
9:45 am
human level, i full story for her. the sunday telegraph will not help her mood or her prospects. a minister has quit over her brexit plans. this of the fallout for last weekend's resignations, they are to the sunday papers. the sunday telegraph has steve baker, not necessarily a household name as for the viewers are concerned. but clearly an influential figure, a brexiteer. he is laying into theresa may, saying she is presiding over a cloa k may, saying she is presiding over a cloak and dagger plot to undermine brexit. it is astonishing. he has a great quote describing braegger, department that he worked in, —— describing the brexit department in which he worked, as a structure in which he worked, as a structure in which the cabinet office and european union was doing for the prime minister. i asked peter what that meant, and he said during catherine the great‘s time she would
9:46 am
tour round the provinces, potemkin showing her round would build a hollywood set to show her how wonderful society was, and in fact, peter, sorry, peter, thank you for that, steve baker has accused her of building potemkin structures to put him off. theresa may is catherine the great! we can't even go there! if there are any cartoonists watching, we would look forward to a reaction to that! i do not have is with him, she is the prime minister and she has to get a deal done. he isa and she has to get a deal done. he is a brexit zealot and always has been, and! is a brexit zealot and always has been, and i really don't have sympathy with his view that it is an establishment elite going against the boys of the people. she says, we are —— going against the voice of the people. we are leaving. this idea of a conspiracy and betrayal is just the zealotry talking. it is, the vote was purely, do we leave or
9:47 am
don't we leave? everyone puts into that vote what they want to put into it. to be fair, every politician of foresight start my precisely, it's a bit like a verse of a religious text, people are trying to work out something that was written thousands of years ago and its significance to modern day. it was only two years ago, but it feels like thousands of years ago! we could do with the wisdom of solomon right now! let's have a look at the inside of the times, james. actually, peter, i'll let you start off first, this is your paper. i take some of the glory on behalf of tim shipman, our political editor, who has some great sources. this is basically mrs may's week, as it were. her relationship with trump, everything that went on, and also looking at the plotting that has been going on in the tory party behind—the—scenes. it's great, because he has some great quotes,
9:48 am
obviously from anonymous people as always, but that happens. looking at the challenge facing borisjohnson. this should come a little bit with a trigger warning. johnson apparently was telling friends last week he's been feeling liberated and energised. but one ally who spoke to him said he was enduring a black dog depression, very churchillian, and was sitting around in his pants wondering if he's done the right thing! we should apologise to any children watching, such a difficult image to deal with! another one for the cartoonists tomorrow morning!|j think the cartoonists tomorrow morning!” think the headline could have been, gareth southgate thought he had a bad week! mrs may has had a terrible week, but she's still standing. you're right, i was praising tim shipman to peter fear, you're right, i was praising tim shipman to peterfear, he's astonishingly diligent, the number of sources he's got —— heater off
9:49 am
air. he's got a great quote about jacob rees—mogg saying, he's not a man to network, he is more of a blue skies thinker. steve baker, who we mentioned earlier, is seen as a hand to hand fighting guy. inputting jacob and steve together, they have made the perfect killing machine, an u nfortu nate made the perfect killing machine, an unfortunate image when you were talking about trying to make peace with any party. but it's not peace, its open warfare, who knows how it's going to pay out —— play out? theresa may looking almost lovingly at donald trump! it's like the worst date you've ever been on, you want to meet this guy but he's just ignoring you, how dare he! note -- no fury like a prime minister scored! you alluded to this little earlier, peter mandelson, a name we didn't meet a lot of recently —— here a lot of recently. peter mandelson over the years has been
9:50 am
absolutely evangelical about the eu. he was of course a commission of air. he, surprisingly, is saying that if we follow the tekkers plan, it will lead the national humiliation —— piszczek as planned. i think his point of view is that it will be much better to have what he calls the people spoke, a second referendum, which a lot of people think is anti—democratic, and i think is anti—democratic, and i think would probably involve a change of government to get that mandate. however, he is so worried that these terms would hamstring the government's ability to trade that he actually says it would be better off having a no deal. we get more favourable terms with other countries if we crashed out of the eu altogether rather than going for this compromise. i think it gets to the heart of the problem, theresa may is trying very hard to sell this is the best of both faults. and mandelson, speaking for art remainers, as it were, says it is
9:51 am
actually the worst of both wells, and it would be better to do something that he had argued so strongly against, rather than do this, is. it shows the complexity of the that she and the government face. chuka umunna, a fellow labour person, says we are not going to support this plan because it is the worst of all world's, support this plan because it is the worst of all worlds, and we will stay within a form of customs union, some sort of single market, but have none of the benefits of being in the eu. i mean, it is like paying into a clu b eu. i mean, it is like paying into a club and then being chucked out of the club and still having to abide by some of the rules. it's bizarre. the norwegians used to call it, i remember talking to a former norwegian foreign minister about this a few years ago, they called it faxed diplomacy. i'm sure nowadays they would call it e—mailed a piracy. other people make the rules and you have to accept. —— e—mail diplomacy. most of the rules are not controversial, like the standards for plugs and all of the rest of it. britain doesn't want to go and
9:52 am
introduce new plugs with their own standards. we have different plugs from the rest of europe anyway. but in terms of electrical safety, these asked and advised things —— these are standardised things. lots of this discussion is always about the abstract, the rules, and there isn't sufficient discussion of concrete... apart from the odd bit of chlorinated chicken or whatever, what are we actually talking about was my lots of people negotiating about principles, but in reality, what are we arguing about? there is so much mythology stroke lies flying around, the whole mythology about, you know, straight bananas and a certain length of sausage and all of those myths, many of whom will —— we re those myths, many of whom will —— were propagated by borisjohnson. that has clouded people's view of what the eu does. it is nothing to do with straight bananas, it is to do with straight bananas, it is to do with straight bananas, it is to do with a trading relationship for 60% of our economy and that has kept
9:53 am
western europe useful for the longest time in history. that is an argument often debated by brexiteers, saying that brags it has nothing to do with that. you do not fight wars against people you are trading with, it's bad for business, and it's always about this is. the sunday times, royal family snubbed trump. did they? no, having spent ten minutes praising tim chipman, this is a bit of a trumped up story -- tim this is a bit of a trumped up story —— tim shipman. you know, it's a good headline, and the sense that the allegation is that prince charles and prince william refuse to see him, but the final sentence is what undermines the whole house of cards, which comes crashing down as much a downing street source said this was always going to be the queen. so, where's the story? sorry, peter, evictee you! that is an point. there is a slight problem,
9:54 am
also in the mail on sunday, piers morgan interviews donald trump. we broadcast his interview tomorrow. piers morgan gives an audience to donald trump! he takes time out of his busy schedule! it was aboard f or is one. trump claims that —— air. .trump claims or is one. trump claims that —— air. . trump claims that the queen spent much more time with him. but it is always these comparisons. my inauguration crowd was much bigger! we have been running this language on news bulletins this morning that he has broken protocol by revealing what the queen thought about brexit, but all that she said was, it's very complex! she never gives anything away! she is so good at it. briefly, the sunday telegraph, the trains again, oh, no! we love trains in this country, that and the weather.
9:55 am
this story brings them together in a wonderful way. apparently, many train drivers are going to be mysteriously off work today because of the gorgeous weather, and also because they thought england were going to be in the world cup final! a lot of people have booked the day of! i would enjoy france's wonderful players, mbappe—lottin and nadal. but i would enjoy sitting out in 31 degrees temperatures, and i won't blame them for that! maybe they will be working from home!” blame them for that! maybe they will be working from home! i was due to be working from home! i was due to be on be working from home! i was due to beona be working from home! i was due to be on a train to the west country at 3pm this afternoon, i booked my ticket yesterday and nobody should have mentioned, i probably would have mentioned, i probably would have thought, guess what, the trains are cancelled! any replacement? no, i willjust are cancelled! any replacement? no, i will just have are cancelled! any replacement? no, i willjust have two... it will be worth it in the end. james, peter, real pleasure to have you with us. giving us such an entertaining talk through the papers.
9:56 am
that's it for the papers this morning. don't forget, you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website at and if you miss the programme, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you to my guests, james rampton and peter conradi. goodbye. i will be back with the headlines at 10am. hello there. it's another glorious summer hello there. it's another glorious summer stay out there for most of us. summer stay out there for most of us. but not for all. summer stay out there for most of us. but not forall. —— summer stay out there for most of us. but not for all. —— summer day. let's ta ke us. but not for all. —— summer day. let's take a look at where we have seen let's take a look at where we have seen beautiful weather so far. glorious across devon, indicative of much of england and wales. but further north and west, the clouds gathers, the rain has arrived in the highlands. this weather front continues to bring some wet weather across the western scotland and northern ireland today. it's going to introduce slightly fresher conditions too. but ahead of it, high pressure is the dominant
9:57 am
feature. it's hot, dry and sunny. some rain has been heavy at times and we will to see it moving further east as it pushes out of northern ireland and in the western scotland. we are not expecting too much across eastern scotland down into the borders, perhaps clouding over as we go through the day. north west wales, but elsewhere, a light south—westerly breeze, the temperatures are set to soar. we are likely to see highs of 30 degrees plus in the south—east corner. a little bit fresher behind that front, 17—20 is our maximum. but if you are headed for centre court action this afternoon, it does look as though it's going to be a hot one. it could be the hottest men's final day for a couple of decades. at least. and that means, as we go through the night, we still keep that one. —— although temperatures will fall away, way, they're not going to fall very far. the weather friend pushes eastwards, by then, in
9:58 am
wea k friend pushes eastwards, by then, in weak affair, just a band of cloud and showery rain, behind it fresher conditions continue. that will be the story as we go into monday. some sunshine around for western scotland and northern ireland in comparison to today. our front will bring a few scattered possibly thundery showers as it bumps into that warm. but it's still hot and humid across much of eastern and south—eastern england. when not expecting that much in the wa ke when not expecting that much in the wake of significant rain across central and southern areas, a good deal of fine weather sitting behind. light winds, still some sunny spells. temperatures high teens, perhaps late 20s of the next few days. —— low 20s. this is bbc news. the headlines... the prime minister warns conservative mps they are putting brexit at risk by arguing over her proposals for how the uk will leave the eu.
9:59 am
the many people who voted from the heart to leave the eu, myjob as prime minister is to deliver for them but also i have to be hard—headed and practical about this and do it in a way that ensures we get the best interests for the uk. the us president, donald trump, is playing golf again this morning. he will leave scotland later and fly to helsinki for a summit with the russian president. the minister for small business, andrew griffiths, has resigned from the government after sending texts of a sexual nature to two female constituents. it's the world cup final this afternoon, with france the favourites to win against croatia in moscow later.
