i've been through so much just to get to this stage and now i'm just over the moon and definitely a lot of emotions have been going around. i haven't had enough time to process it yet but it is really huge for me and i am really excited for the next step. it has been festering at times differently because learning in the nfl is like winning a new language. so much to learn having not played the sport before. deftly a high demand on the body physically as well. —— definitely a high demand. it's been a strawberry kay struggled but i've been enjoying things on the way. it will be so hard. it's a huge mountain to climb so ijust need to learn about the game before you even talk about trying to make it into the team. for me, the hard work sta rts the team. for me, the hard work starts now. so much stuff that i need to get through but yeah, i am

well. so next week, you go to an iconic surfing venue in the world. how much would mean for you to lift the trophy above your head at the end of the competition? that would be absolute incredible. it is one of my favourite waves on tour and i did really well there last year. i'm really well there last year. i'm really looking forward to going back there and like you said, there is so much history behind that event and so much history behind that event and so many of my heroes that have wanted. so many people that have one have gone into entitles. that would be really cool so i look forward to it. seven—time marathon des sables champion rachid el morabity and his younger brother mohamed have dominated the first two days of the event with dutchwoman ragna debats well ahead of the women's field. rachid won the first stage on sunday ahead of his brother — but mohamed won monday's second stage six seconds ahead of his brother and abdel—kader el mouaziz was third coming in over three minutes later. debats meanwhile was the the quickest woman once more, fastest overall, a full 44 minutes

here i think on tuesday because the rain is still probably a bit further south through rush—hour, so affecting south wales, southern england, perhaps into the south midlands. move further north, very much quieter, bit of a chillier start perhaps one or two mist and fog patches but sunshine in most areas and very light winds as well a much sunnier day for the north—east of england. we will still have this showery rain mind you and it is moving very, very slowly its way southwards. it could induce a few more thundery downpours in the south west of england during the afternoon. away from here though, a lot of dry weather with sunshine continuing through the day. easterly breezes mind you. colder around the north sea coast, significant drop in temperature across east anglia as you can see as well as some western parts of scotland which was quite warm on monday. it gets chillier as the sun goes down, mind you. and we should see the showers moving down going further south out towards the english channel overnight. clear skies, maybe one or two mist orfog patches but a chillier night, northern parts of the uk, as you see we have a touch
of blue on there. there could be a touch of frost around as well. now we are going to find any showers squeezed way to the south by this developing area of high pressure that is extending its way into the uk and it's keeping all these weather fronts at bay from the atlantic. so, a lot of quiet and dry weather through the rest of the week. chilly start as i say on wednesday. any showers are more likely to be across the english channel. it should be a dry day for the most part, maybe a little bit more cloud coming in, more of a breeze across east anglia and the south—east of england with some chilly breezes as well. those temperatures not changing an awful lot. 9—13 degrees if you are lucky, a bit below par for this time of year. and with that high pressure still around, essentially it is dry. there will be some cloud around, some sunshine at times. the winds probably picking up a bit later on in the week and still feeling chilly for this time of the year. goodbye.
