6:35 pm
paris. ordinarily, this street has cleared in seconds because everyone is heading up to the shone blue sea, clusters of people around the bars watching the presentation, but within 20 minutes of the cup being won, people have upped sticks, and we have seen groups of people sporadically passing with everything tricolor, heading in the direction of the champs—elys es. half an hour ago, it was a very different scene, madness when the whistle went, absolute madness, i was trying to broadcast, and within seconds, i was hit by 100 flying french men and french women, belting pass me likes only missiles, knocking me for six. —— tricolore. they clustered around the camera, the place has gone mad, com pletely the camera, the place has gone mad, completely mad. it is nice, everyone
6:36 pm
i°y completely mad. it is nice, everyone joy is, a lot of elation in all of this. the country is football mad, if it has happened here, it will have happened in every town, from the south to the middle to the north. we have been talking about how money people right across france have been engaged and infused by this world cup contest, just as they we re this world cup contest, just as they were here in england, while the england team were still in the contest, but also there has been a lot of interest in this french team, young, multicultural, president emmanuel macron, who we saw in the pouring rain, in the stadium, in moscow, clearly wanting to see that tea m moscow, clearly wanting to see that team as victimising his approach to the culture of france. the country
6:37 pm
has swung behind this team in a very big way, but relatively recently, the country was the target of a lot of criticism of until pretty recently, even in the group stage matches, the headlines in l'equipe work, what is going on here, kind of thing, —— the headlines in l'equipe were. multicultural is not a french expression, from the french point of view, from the point of view of a emmanuel macron, this is not a multicultural team, it is a french team, maybe they are immigrants, from a lot of different places, and thatis from a lot of different places, and that is a hallmark of this young team, but, the french view is that this is a french team and what is very striking about this team, and the elements that have come from different areas, like kylian mbappe, symptomatically emblematic, they are extremely outward in their patronage is and their expression of patriotism and i have not seen that
6:38 pm
before. 0ther patriotism and i have not seen that before. other teams in the past have had a large immigrant element but they have not maybe had the same outward willingness to address their patriotically fervour that this team has. i think that is different, and that has made the country very happy about rallying behind them. france isafair about rallying behind them. france is a fair weather football country, only rallies behind winning teams but this time it has rallied big—time. but this time it has rallied big-time. clearly going to be quite a night there, in paris, many thanks for the latest. in a moment, we will be here with the main early evening news, but now, let's catch up with the weather forecast. for many places the one glorious summer for many places the one glorious summer weather has continued through the weekend but things are starting to change, this is the scene, sunday afternoon, hastings, beautiful blue skies, and as we head through this coming week, things will gradually start to turn a little bit cooler,
6:39 pm
there will be the chance that the sunshine will be interrupted by some rain, which will be welcome rainfall across some parts of the country that has seen barely any rain over the past six weeks or so. the rain that we are going to see at some point, down to frontal systems moving in, high pressure still keeps things dry. 0ver moving in, high pressure still keeps things dry. over the south and the east of the uk. satellite and radar, showing the cloud and rain we have had out there during sunday afternoon, northern ireland and the western half of scotland, it has been raining, eastern scotland, things remaining dry into the evening hours. england and wales and the day on a warm, humid and dry note, through the evening and overnight we will see more cloud, pushing into parts of north—west england, wales, if you spelt of rain, northern ireland, clearand dry, fresher, in the south—east, still 17 degrees in london, overnight low, which will feel quite warm and quite humid. another warm and humid day for sexual and eastern
6:40 pm
parts, sunshine again, further north—west, change behind the cold front, more cloud working in across eastern scotland, northern england and wales, sharp showers, making its way east. temperatures ranging 20 in belfast to nearer 30 towards london, contrast in temperature east to west. some showers on the frontal system across eastern england through tuesday, easing away, this will be welcome rainfall for parts of the country that really are desperate for a bit of rain. most places do look largely dry with a mix of sunshine spells and one or two scattered showers tended to bubble up anywhere in the afternoon, but temperatures 22, 25 for most of us, 5 degrees cooler than we have seen us, 5 degrees cooler than we have seen through the weekend. looking ahead through the middle of the week, sunny spells, temperatures not doing too badly at all, cooler and wetter, as we get towards the end of the week and into the weekend. become the champions of the world
6:41 pm
for the second time. triumph came after a 11—2 win over croatia, to the delight of supporters back home. we'll be looking back at a tournament that was a showcase for russia. president trump is on his way to meet vladimir putin, after the end of his uk visit, as theresa may reveals his brexit advice to her: he told me i should sue the eu. sue the eu?! sue the eu! not go into negotiations with them, sue them. another new timetable from govia thameslink, as it tries to reduce the number of cancelled trains. and at wimbledon, a fourth men's singles title for novak djokovic. good evening.
6:42 pm
the world cup has drawn to a close in russia, with a dramatic final, in which france beat croatia 11—2 to lift the trophy for a second time. president macron was in russia to see the french team's triumph. for president putin, it was the end of a tournament that gave his country a prominent place in the international spotlight over the course of the last month. from moscow, our sports editor dan roan reports. it's a sporting occasion like no other. cheering a fixture with a global appeal that transcends the game. and in keeping with the world cup of surprises, a final that few had predicted. russia has put on quite a show this last month. the tournament is seen as a public relations coup for its leader. would this provide a fitting
6:43 pm
conclusion? france were favourites and it was the three—time finalists who took the lead, albeit fortuitously. commentator: as easy a goal as you will see. mario mandzukic whose goal ended injured's dreams of being here but the ball into his own net. not for almost 70 yea rs has into his own net. not for almost 70 years has a country with such a small population reached a world cup final. but this is croatia and for the fourth match in a row, they then fought back from going behind. commentator: perisic! with a super strike. but then came controversy. goal—scorer perisic seemed to know little about the ball deflecting onto his hand here but french protests then saw a va our review for the first time in a final. penalty given, antoine griezmann stepping up —— var review. penalty given, antoine griezmann stepping up -- var review. france regained the lead. these the scenes of celebration in paris. then came the tournament's first real lapse in
6:44 pm
security, russian feminist activist group pussy right claiming responsibility. —— pussy riot. group pussy right claiming responsibility. -- pussy riot. paul pogba has the biggest goal of his career. one of the tournament's stars mbappe just becoming the second teenager to score in a world cup final after pele. france 4—1. france are running away with the crown. this vinyl had it all, even a goalkeeping howler. but that was merely a consolation for croatia. in this final. commentator: and france are world champions. france adding a second title to the one they won 20 yea rs second title to the one they won 20 years ago on home soil. didier dish on was the captain then, nowjust the third man to win the sport's most coveted prize as both player and coach. the party back in paris meanwhile getting into full swing. russia 2018 will be remembered for
6:45 pm
the way some football's top nations struggle to meet expectations but ultimately, one has prevailed. and we can talk to dan roan in moscow now. an amazing end to that world cup final, how will we look back on this tournament as a whole? as you can see behind me the heavens have openedin see behind me the heavens have opened in moscow. i don't think the organisers will mind too much. that was a great final. it has been a classic tournament with plenty of drama, great goals, great matches, some new drama, great goals, great matches, some new star is a gripping final and that all reinforces the view that this will be a tournament to beat. it won't be the same again maybe because in four years' time we go from one of the biggest countries in the world as host to tiny qatar. it won't be in the summer, in the middle of the premier league season, in the middle of winter. after that, the entire format of the tournament changes to 48 teams. eight years from now. perhaps this may be the
6:46 pm
last of a kind. the organisers will be delighted. in terms of security, apart from that pitch invasion here this evening. logistics, transport, not of the footballing information russia had in this tournament, didn't come to pass —— footballing infinity. they will be concern from russia's critics at the way that football has cosied up to the president, vladimir putin. and the pr coup he has undoubtedly achieved here through this tournament. of course, when all is said and done, from the fans‘ respective, especially in england, they will look back fondly. in a tournament where england, of course, reconnected with its public. and when football undoubtedly was the winner alongside the president of russia. thank you. president trump has ended an eventful visit to the uk — where he met the queen, gave advice to the prime minister on brexit and attracted mass protests. he's now flying to helsinki, where he'll hold talks with russia's president vladimir putin. from donald trump's turnberry resort in ayrshire, james cook reports. president trump came to turnberry,
6:47 pm
we were told, to prepare for his meeting with president putin. this was his second round of golf. before he left, he was asked to name his biggest foe and the answer was intriguing. i think we have a lot of foes. i think the european union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. you wouldn't think of the european union, but they're a foe. russia is a foe, in certain respects. it was a parting shot, which will alarm america's allies. president trump is leaving the uk, having caused consternation, confusion and chaos. but for the white house, that was just the warm up, the main event now follows in helsinki. this will be the third time the leaders have met and there's plenty to discuss. russia's illegal annexation of crimea, a nerve agent poisoning of wiltshire and, of course, election meddling. the key question, did moscow plot her downfall?
6:48 pm
on friday, a dozen russian intelligence officers were charged with hacking the democratic national committee. mr trump said it hadn't occurred to him to ask president putin for their extradition, blaming not the hackers but the hacked. i think the dnc should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked. they had bad defences. they were able to be hacked, but i heard they were trying to hack the republicans, too. and this may be wrong, but they had much stronger defences. and with that, he was off, dampening expectations but no doubt hoping to make history. this is what awaits in helsinki. and as he flew towards it, mr trump was tweeting again, calling much of the news media the enemy of the people. at least the two leaders will have something in common. james cook, bbc news, turnberry in ayshire. the prime minister has revealed that
6:49 pm
president trump advised her to sue the european union over brexit, rather than negotiate with them. theresa may disclosed his advice as she defended her plan for a deal, which favours close links with the eu on trade in goods. the policy has been strongly criticised by some leave campaigners and faces a tough test tomorrow in the house of commons. here's our political correspondent iain watson. the prime minister is coming out fighting on brexit. though her most immediate battles are with those in her own party. at her country retreat, chequers, she hammered out a new brexit plan and then lost two cabinet ministers. and many more of her mps think shejust isn't being tough enough on brussels. oh, and so does someone else. i gave her a suggestion, not advice, i wouldn't want to give her advice. i would give her a suggestion. i could fully understand why she thought it was a bit tough. and when he spoke to american television, he remained coy about his suggestion, but still thought it was a good idea.
6:50 pm
..strong advice. and i think it probably would have worked. they're having a very hard time in terms of that separation. so, what was his advice or suggestion? he told me i should sue the eu. sue the eu?! he told me i should sue the eu, not go into negotiations, sue them. actually, you know, no. did you think about that for a second? we're going into negotiations with them. more seriously for the prime minister, her new plan agreed at chequers to have a common rule book with the eu with traded goods hasn't gone down well with many of her backbenchers. the prime minister's brexit plan is in potential danger on two fronts, next week in the house of commons, ardent brexiteers will try to change legislation on trade and customs in a way that could scupper it. but some of those who had previously backed remain are trying to push her in the opposite direction, closer to the eu. something she says would be a betrayal of the brexit vote. some people are saying they want to vote in the trade bill
6:51 pm
to keep us in the customs union. i say that's not acceptable, that's not what the british people voted for. others are saying perhaps we cannot have the bill at all. that would be damaging to our no—deal preparations. let's just keep our eyes on the prize, here. the prize is delivering leaving the european union. some long—standing leave campaigners say they won't vote down the government's brexit legislation entirely, but they are determined to give it a radical overhaul. brexit is enormously positive, a huge opportunity for the country and i'm afraid the prime minister doesn't see that. it's why i think she is a remainer who has remained a remainer. so, would labour help the prime minister out and back her brexit plan? i've read it a couple of times and quite frankly can't make head nor tail of it. it's theological. it's... it's a mess. so the answer to the question is, very simply, not that i can see. and the political fallout from chequers continues. today, a parliamentary aide at the foreign office resigned over brexit.
6:52 pm
it's still not clear if the prime minister's new plan will survive intact. iain watson, bbc news. the czech republic has rejected a request from italy to accept some migrants who are stranded on patrol boats in the mediterranean. nearly a50 people are being stopped from disembarking at ports in italy as the government attempts to involve other eu countries. the rail operator govia thameslink is introducing its third new timetable in two months. passengers on the company's lines, which include southern, thameslink and great northern, have suffered severe disruption after an overhaul of the schedule in may. 0ther rail companies cancelled services today, blaming staff shortages due to the hot weather and world cup final. here's our business correspondent joe lynam. beeping. in recent weeks, it's getting to be a familiar sight. cancelled trains and packed carriages. yet another new—ish timetable on great northern, southern and thameslink services and yet more trains cancelled.
6:53 pm
passengers are getting weary. i travelled on the day they changed the timetables, on may 20th, from cambridge and it was just a guessing game, to know what platform to be on. the staff have no information. it can only improve things, to be honest. as far as i'm concerned, it's very, very poor. since the new timetables were introduced in may, the government has launched an inquiry into govia thameslink, threatened to strip it of its franchise and its ceo has resigned. but it's notjust govia where there's problems. another operator, northern, cancelled 170 services today and great western, which runs trains between london and the south west, also cancelled more than 30 trains, blaming engineering works, the hot weather and the world cup for staff choosing not to work overtime. govia thameslink, which runs southern, thameslink and great northern trains said: "the new timetable provides passengers with a more robust and reliable service, gives priority to peak—hour trains and seeks to reduce gaps in the service.
6:54 pm
we apologise to passengers for the disruption caused". transport focus, which represents commuters, said rail companies must make sure they do everything to minimise inconvenience on the day. and to restore services, as soon as possible. the real test, though, for new timetables will come tomorrow, when commuters will grit their teeth as they try to get into work. joe lynam, bbc news, hertfordshire. tennis and novak djokovic has won the wimbledon men's title for the fourth time in his career after beating south african kevin anderson in straight sets. it's djokovic‘s first title since suffering a serious injury more than two years ago. from wimbledon, our sports correspondentjoe wilson sent this report. the tall one is djokovic, the taller one is anderson. after a gruelling fortnight, who had something left for this final? kevin anderson maintained his effort today, but the magic touch was hard to find. that arm had already endured 21 hours of tennis of this wimbledon.
6:55 pm
and, of course, there was novak djokovic to consider, reaching everything and taking the first two sets 6—2. whether physical, mental or emotional, djokovic has refound himself. the exit seemed certain for anderson. but he was just warming up. the third set needed a tie—break but djokovic did it. four time wimbledon champion. look, i recognise that man. the djokovic family all here, the good times were back. i had many moments of doubt, and didn't know really if i could come back to the level to compete and this was my... ..first grand slam final after a couple of years. and there is no better place in the world to really make a comeback. djokovic champion at 31, anderson runner—up at 32. well, this wimbledon may have been
6:56 pm
about the older guys but there was another final today, which offered a glimpse of the future. 6'2", 16 years old, britain's jack draper really rose to the court 0ne occasion in the boys‘ final today. he won the second set. tseng chun—hsin was too good in the end, but draper played a big part in the big day. as, in his own way, did stefan djokovic. joe wilson, bbc news. there's more throughout the evening on the bbc news channel. we're back with the late news at 10pm. now on bbc one, it's time for the news where you are. goodbye. this is bbc world news. our top stories... france are crowned world cup champions. jubilant scenes in paris as france beat croatia by four goals
6:57 pm
to two at the world cup final in moscow. kylian mbappe was among the top scorers, the first teenager to score ina scorers, the first teenager to score in a world cup final since kelly yea rs before. as president trump heads to helsinki to meet russia's president putin, he says the global challenges faced by the us include the european union. the prime minister has revealed the advice she was given by donald trump about brexit.
