11:01 am
the wimbledon men's final takes place this afternoon. novak djokovic says he hasn't got "much to lose" when he faces kevin anderson on centre court later. and in dateline — foreign correspondents look at how the issues of the week are being tackled around the world. theresa may has revealed the advice donald trump has given her on brexit — which was to sue the eu. in an interview on the andrew marr show she also said she still wants to deliver brexit for the uk but has to be ‘hardheaded' about protecting jobs.
11:02 am
this comes after she warned conservative mps they are putting brexit at risk if they fail to support her proposals in the commons this week. the prime minister gave a staunch defence of the proposal of what's being called a ‘common rule book'. he told me i should cdu. cdu? not going to negotiation, sue them. we're going into... we're going into negotiations with them. but interestingly, what the president also said at that press conference was, don't walk away. don't walk away from negotiations. i want to be able to sit down, to negotiate the best dealfor britain. let's drill down into this with our political correspondent nick eardley. after an unpredictable week in politics was a fitting end with that advice the prime minister was given by the president. she's getting advice from him, i don't think she's
11:03 am
quite going to take the advice to suit the eu but she's also getting a lot of advice at home about what this deal could mean, about whether it is the best thing she can achieve and about whether or not she should be trying to negotiate it slightly differently. there are key votes in parliament this week on the issues of trade and customs. she's basing a lot of pressure on them but she really ca m e lot of pressure on them but she really came out fighting in that interview. here are some more of what she was saying. the european‘s commission to ideas that they put forward, two proposals were no good. one hand, it was what would've been for us a very portrayed steel and would've kept northern ireland and the customs union. effectively carving northern ireland out in these terms from the uk. that is unacceptable to any government here in the uk and on the other hand, a deal that would have meant accepting free movement and being in the customs union. both of those are unacceptable. they are what people voted against. so faced
11:04 am
with that we had an option. we could go for no deal and of course, nobody was still there. it is still. i think the best thing for the uk is to have a deal that sets a good relationship with our trading partners in the future. so if we're going to find something that is in britain's interest, that delivered on the bus and was negotiable, we had to make what is a compromise, but is a positive in terms of the benefits that it gives us. her argument there is this is the best deal on the table and she has picked a side. she's clearly coming out fighting for that plan this morning. the problem is, on the opposition benches you people who think, we perhaps need to negotiate it differently, the customs union, slightly closer relationship with the european union than theresa may is suggesting. but even within her own party there are those who say this is too close. the brexiteers who wanted a clean break the eu.
11:05 am
those votes was mentioned on monday and tuesday, the big question is what brexiteers do on the trade bill. they have their amendments, they are unlikely to pass, but whether they can back and unamended trade deal as it stands. we will probably find out more about how they are approaching that the next few hours. some of them will be on the airwaves to. prime minister was asked by andrew marr what would happen if that build and go through on monday. if that trade bill, that trade bill is an important part of our no deal preparations. batch trade skill as an important part of ensuring that we re an important part of ensuring that were able to maintain trade agreements in the future. if we don't see that trade deals with an something like a0 agreement that the eu has with various countries around the world would be able to be continued in the uk leads the eu for us continued in the uk leads the eu for us in the united kingdom. what i'm saying, andrew, is very simple. and
11:06 am
as you might imagine on this particular issue of europe and brexit, i have voices from all sides. you know, there are hundreds if not thousands of different views of people have about what we should be doing. so some people are saying they want to vote in the trade bill to keep us in the customs union. i say that's not acceptable. that is not what the british people voted forfoot not what the british people voted for foot above are saying, perhaps we can not have the bill at all. that would be damaging to our no deal preparations of us give her eyes on the prize here. the prizes delivering leaving the european union ina delivering leaving the european union in a way that is in our national interest. to what extent would you say that the prime minister is effectively saying to her constituents, colleagues, there is no alternative? nobody has come up with a better plan. you might not like bits of my plan. you might not like bits of my plan but in the absence of anything better, this is the only option on the table. that is exactly her. she saying that the european union came up with some
11:07 am
suggestions and none of them are acceptable. so here is my proposal. it is the only one on the table. before that meeting at chequers, her allies in cabinet where saying, you have to face down your critics. i think that is essentially what she did. she lost a couple of cabinet ministers as a result. david davies and boris johnson of ministers as a result. david davies and borisjohnson of course could not stomach what was in it. the question now is the extent to which she is prepared based on her own backbenchers, the likes of jacob rees mogg of the european research group who are deeply unhappy with elements of this, it keeps us far too close to the european union and will stifle uk's ability to do what it wants after brexit. the key test of that, some of the more come this week. it will probably actually, the summer. week. it will probably actually, the summer. we're not getting away with it after this week. this conversation is going to continue for a long time that you are absolutely right. theresa may are sitting up there today saying, this
11:08 am
is the best option on the table. the other arrant is the best option on the table. the other arra nt acceptable. is the best option on the table. the other arrant acceptable. we need to stick with this. thank you very much. the ministerfor small business, andrew griffiths, has resigned from government after sending text messages of a sexual nature to two female constituents. mr griffiths, mp for burton, and theresa may's chief of staff in opposition between 200a and 2006, told the mirror he was "deeply ashamed". he said his behaviour had caused "untold distress" to his wife and family to whom he "owed everything". president trump heads to helsinki later today where he's due to meet the russian president vladimir putin on monday. mr trump spent a second night at his turnberry resort in ayrshire, and this morning is already out on the golf course. but today — unlike yesterday — there are no protests. let's talk to our correspondent ros atkins who's at turnberry for us now. good morning. it is much more low— key good morning. it is much more low—key today he returned real west coast of scotland this morning. the president has now playing goblet as you mentioned, he has not been accompanied by protesters. in back,
11:09 am
casually glancing across the course it would look like any other day. look more closely and juicy police lined up across some of the fairways. between me and the turnberry hotel but one policewoman walking around but the whole atmosphere feels a little bit more low— key atmosphere feels a little bit more low—key than yesterday. one of the things which protest as he was caught and achieves, which the protesters in england did not is they actually came very close to mr trump. they managed to shout at him so trump. they managed to shout at him so much that he was able to hear about. he waved back at some point. also on friday night a greenpeace protester threw a powered paraglider close to the presidency were standing out of the front of the hotel just over there. let's standing out of the front of the hoteljust over there. let's look across, what the process in scotland have been doing with this report. he has described it as magical, incredible. this is the first time donald trump has played his course at turnberry since he became president of the united states of america. but not everyone was pleased to see him.
11:10 am
some protesters came to the beach at turnberry, telling mr trump he was not welcome at his own resort. i would much prefer to be doing a hill walk on arran, but i think when something like this happens, you have to turn up and be counted. yesterday, there were protests around the country. police estimate 9000 came to the carnival of resistance in edinburgh, while on his other golf course in aberdeenshire, a number gathered. hello, glasgow! cheering. the first minister, nicola sturgeon, did not meet president trump. she led the pride march in glasgow. the trump estate provides jobs in the village and has poured millions of pounds into the local economy. john furlong livesjust along the road from trump turnberry. he says his neighbour should be made to feel welcome. i thinkjust normal, scottish, british good manners, we should welcome him. he was invited here. he didn'tjust decide to come. a visit from the president of the united states was never
11:11 am
going to be low key. the security, roadblocks and checkpoints will all soon be cleared as donald trump heads off to helsinki later today. catriona renton, bbc news, turnberry. let's now talk to william courtney, former us ambassador to russia who joins us via webcam from france. thank you for your time. what are your expectations of the summit? it will be important for the white house to have a summit that has some concrete achievements. the summit with kimjong concrete achievements. the summit with kim jong un concrete achievements. the summit with kimjong un did not have concrete agreements, just a joint statement. two weeks later the north koreans are accusing the secretary
11:12 am
of state. so it is not clear that the summit has made as much progress as president trump has hope. next time then used the concrete achievements. and what might those concrete achievements looks like, in your opinion? at the first ronald reagan russia summit after a period of tense relations, the two presidents talked about nuclear arms and other big issues but the actual concrete achievements were more low—key issues. exchanges of people, people to people exchanges, educational and cultural. opening new consulates. so it probably would be prudent for the white house to pursue a similar low— key white house to pursue a similar low—key accomplishment just to be sure there are some. it is quite hard, isn't it? to read how president trump views of russia
11:13 am
in advance of nato, for instance, he called some nato members delinquent over their defence spending. he gave the interview to the sun newspaper in the uk when the undercut theresa may's plans for a brexit but he has not been so outspoken about vladimir all about thrush in the build—up to the summit. yes, for a long time he said he would like to have a good relationship with vladimir putin. but if you look at actual us foreign policy, us policy has been pretty consistent through the years example, president trump did sign onto the nato communique was some tough climate with regard to russia. last august, president trump signed into law congressionally sponsored sanctions that would expand sanctions. president trump... us policy with regard to russia is still pretty firm and remain so.
11:14 am
thank you very much indeed for your time. one of the things we're going to be looking at very closely is how donald trump's public statements fit in to longer term american policy because as an past courtney was suggesting they're sometimes there appears to be a disconnect between the rhetoric and the actual policies that are in place. and if you're thinking, why am i not mentioning the agenda of the summit? that is because so far we have not been given one. it's highly unusual ahead of the summit of the size for us not to be given more details on what the two lea d e rs to be given more details on what the two leaders will be talking about what they're hoping to achieve but donald trump is ever does things quite differently. he would not have it any other way. and we will have to see what plays out on monday. thank you very much. enjoy watching president trump played golf at least. we've got some breaking news and events at turnberry. this is come to us from police scotland. they say that the city of glasgow,
11:15 am
this is an arrest to do with that incident on friday. paraglider got close to the turnberry resort whilst mrtrump was close to the turnberry resort whilst mr trump was there at the hotel. something that raise lots of security concerns. a 55 draws man has been arrested in connection with the incident. this is a powered parachute that the flow and vicinity of the turnberry hotel around 9a5 on friday evening. there are now no further details on that. beyond the fa ct further details on that. beyond the fact that it is a 55—year—old man. he has been arrested and he's been questioned in connection with the incident involving the powered paraglider, which was very close to turnberry hotel when the president was in residence there. police in wiltshire are continuing their search for evidence after the poisoning of a couple with the nerve agent novichok. dawn sturgess died after she and her partner charlie rowley were exposed to the chemical last month.
11:16 am
detectives say more than a00 items have been recovered so far. our correspondent is outside the hospitalfor our correspondent is outside the hospital for us now. do our correspondent is outside the hospitalfor us now. do we know anything more about the condition of the patient? we know that he's been treated here. the hospital said there is no change in his condition and they said it is serious but stable. that has been the situation for the last few days. the metropolitan police have because quite a lot of information on the investigation, on this ongoing investigation, on this ongoing investigation which of is now a murder investigation. it is a week since she died. the police that there is a huge search operation going on and they are that this is one of the most complex and difficult that uk policing has ever faced. as you mentioned that they have recovered a00 items, a00 separate items they observed a significant number may be
11:17 am
contaminated. that is obviously very worrying. we do know that on friday a bottle was recovered from the home of charlie rowley. they do believe that bottle was the source of the contamination. the possible contamination. the possible contamination of this nerve agent. and they are saying this work is going on that it is going to last for weeks, if not months. so obviously, huge operation here. the headlines on bbc news... the prime minister has revealed that us president donald trump advised her to ‘sue the eu' in order to achieve brexit. the us president, donald trump, will leave scotland later today and fly to helsinki for a summit with the russian president vladimir putin. the ministerfor small business — and theresa may's former chief of staff — andrew griffiths, resigns from the government after sending texts of a sexual nature to two female constituents. do you watch the world cup final in
11:18 am
moscow or deed chewing into the men's singles final at wimbledon? watch both. watch both. get one on your phone and one on the tv. we're just underfive your phone and one on the tv. we're just under five hours away now from one of the biggest games in sport. france against croatia in the world cup final. it is the maiden final for croatia who knocked out england in the semifinals. france overcame belgium. they favourites to add to the trophy that they lifted in 1998. i'm confident in france. because i think it was a big team, big tournament for us. step—by—step, the tea m tournament for us. step—by—step, the team grow up together. it is very important that i have big respect
11:19 am
for the team. after 2010, with french football it was very, very bad. eight years after, you can win the world cup. it is very important for french football. very important. croatia are the lowest ranked team to reach a world cup final on the second smallest in terms of population as well. the manager says his side will have no excuses and that they are fully prepared. coverage is on bbc one from 3pm. now, england's the boys are coming home. they have departed their training base and are due to fly into birmingham airport later this afternoon. other they came up just short, beaten by belgium yesterday and finishing how does gareth southgate reflect the tournament as a whole? ten yea rs a whole? ten years since we had a knockout win. that was becoming a huge barrierfor win. that was becoming a huge barrier for everybody. the win. that was becoming a huge barrierfor everybody. the penalty shoot out. huge barrier. but i think the biggest thing for me is the ethos that the players have terms of
11:20 am
how they work every day and a desire to get better, their understanding that we have done well. but we still have a bit to do to be considered a really top team. and i think that's important that we recognise that. closer to home, the chelsea forward scored in the two nil win over england yesterday. he has made no secret of his desire to play for real madrid monday. he says it might be time to discover something different after six years at sta mford something different after six years at stamford bridge. could he be on the way? west ham have confirmed a new signing in this fancy little video. hejoined for a club record fee that could be worth £a1.5 million. before the football begins a small matter of the men's wimbledon final. and be honest, who predicted that it would be these two ? predicted that it would be these two? kevin anderson and novak
11:21 am
djokovic contesting it. djokovic said he does not have much to lose as he chases a 13th title and fourth at wimbledon. he does wish he had the day off that anderson had. both the day off that anderson had. both the semifinals lasted more than five hours. the action is already under way at the all england club. the women's wheelchair doubles final. they've never won a grand slam doubles title. their facing the top. the three to love in their first game. kerber won the finalfor kerber won the final for the first time ending the comeback of serena williams. competing in a grand slam finaljust ten months after giving birth to herfirst finaljust ten months after giving birth to her first child. was a repeat of the 26 team final that kerber loss after taking the first set by six games to three, using
11:22 am
some very fine defensive tennis as well, she did the second by the same scoreline. she has only the french open to win to complete the set. stage nine of the tour de france gets under way in about ten minutes. the combined updates about on the bbc sport website. i'll have more in the next hour. so let's pick up on that croatia—france world cup final this afternoon. france are the favourites of course but croatia have defied expectations so far. both sides extremely confident out of this game and extremely enthusiastic about being in the final pool. this is red square today and it is filled with the flags of croatia and also the french. the
11:23 am
croatians the majority but all day dabbing fans of both teams and all over the world. a confident about winning? are you going to win? yes. 1—0, it's ok. brands are the favourites. it is ok. france, what do they know? fans can cry and go home. you said there from a croatian fan. the french will be crying today, apparently. i've heard from events that they are extremely. one man told me he took his french flag to the world cup in france in 1998 and it was very confident that 20 years later it will be francia is taking the cup home this time again. the kind of build—up for the match itself sarah. russia got knocked out, of course. it is still a major event for russians? it is. i mean, youjust seen some of the images here in red square. it is a square that is
11:24 am
usually full of frozen but not usually full of frozen but not usually from 32 countries. an extraordinary moment in russia. the many visitors and tourists from all over the world. given that the state of political relations between russia and the west has been so dire in recent years. seen a realfall of an number of tourists coming here, particularly from western europe, for example. this last month, this whole square in many of the host cities have been filled with foreigners. it is extraordinary reaction between russians and foreigners. people talking about football, talking about their lives and talking a bit about politics. and i think it has been a real eye—openerfor many and i think it has been a real eye—opener for many people both for those visiting russia but also of course the russians visiting people from all over the world. let's talk about relations between russia and the west. the summit in helsinki tomorrow with president putin. how important is that? i think for russia it is hugely important. this is a moment of russia has been waiting for for a long time. there have been meetings
11:25 am
between vladimir putin and donald trump the forces he was elected the baby on the sidelines of other summits. this is the bilateral summit. this at the moment but i guess both sides have been building towards but russia, i think, has perhaps wanted more. there is a big question over what is going to come out of that in terms of any concrete state m e nts out of that in terms of any concrete statements are agreements. questions about the unpredictability of donald trump, what you might offer to vladimir putin in their meeting which we know is going to happen just there to have them together. there will be no sort of outside advisers at that meeting. it will just be a one—on—one. the question of the unpredictability of donald trump. but i think the vladimir putin this is about being back at the table. you know, this is a country that has been isolated. a country that has been isolated. a country that has been isolated. a country that has been under international sanctions are still under international sanctions particularly because of the annexation of crimea from ukraine. that remains the case and yet, even so, even though the state of politics is so dire, these two men,
11:26 am
these two powerful leaders amount going to sit down to talk. so the kid is extraordinarily important for russia, particularly for mr putin is normally sitting here in the kremlin, that he will have this face—to—face encounter with the most powerful leader in the world. a british teenager who fell 70ft from a balcony in magaluf has died. thomas channon, 18, from rhoose near barry, vale of glamorgan, is the third holidaymaker from the uk to die at the eden roc apartment complex this year. he was celebrating the end of his a—levels at the spanish party resort. the foreign office are supporting the family. the troubled rail operator govia thameslink is introducing its third new timetable in two months, promising it will be more robust and reliable. passengers on the company's lines, which include southern, thameslink, and great northern, have suffered severe disruption since an overhaul of the schedule in may. the operator says the new timetables will be in place until additional services can be re—introduced. the twelve boys rescued from flooded caves in thailand have been told of the death of one of the divers who helped save them. former navy seal saman died

11:28 am
minutes that we have discovered, you will remember of course that incident that happened about 20 minutes after donald trump arrived at his turnberry hotel on friday evening. now, we understand now from the police in scotland that a 55—year—old man has been arrested. an incident with a powered parachute that was flown close to the turn very hotel on evening. that the information that we have at the moment. of course, we watched this happen on friday night. we were standing at the bottom of the road where the turnberry hotel, looking up where the turnberry hotel, looking up to the hotel. present company ‘s wife out of the terrace. they were with their entourage chatting away and then, interview, as we were filming out, keller paraglider that went around the building, roundabout to three times, going past the banner that unfurl from it. it was a greenpeace protest. at the moment
