however, we mention some developing. there was a big moments morning, the british businessman sirjim radcliffe entered into the fray and all of these discussions. he is founder of ineos, the chemicals giants, and they offered in with an offer of £4.25 billion in order to buy chelsea football club. that has broken down in terms of 1.75 billion, invested in chelsea over the next ten years and also 2.5 billion which would be put towards the charitable foundation in terms of that more in ukraine. it is not quite clear, you mentioned there are some ripples about it, because there has been a process about in place also there were three consortiums in the running today. it is not yet clear what this latest of elements has done to it, but is certainly creating a lot of conversation around. ., ., , around. indeed, sarah, and 'ust finall , around. indeed, sarah, and 'ust finally, what does it i around. indeed, sarah, and 'ust finally, what does it mean h around. indeed, sarah, andjust finally, what does it mean for. around. indeed, sarah, andjust. finally, what does it mean for the

round of the madrid open — winning 7—6, 6—0. mo farah will race for the first time in nearly a year in monday's vitality london 10,000 metres. the four—time olympic champion hasn't featured since failing to qualify for the tokyo games lastjune. the 39—year—old has said he wants to continue to race on road and track. west ham say two fans been identified after german, teachers were allegedly attacked during the europa league semifinal against eintracht frankfurt last night. the commentators had their headsets ripped off and thrown on the floor. chelsea women have announced that ji so—yun will return to south korea at the end of the season. the midfielder has scored 68 goals in her eight years with the club and also won 11 major trophies. staying with football. the football writers' association have named the winners of their footballer of the year awards for this season. the men's winner is liverpool forward mohamed salah,
who previously won it back in 2018. the egyptian is having a remarkable campaign — scoring 22 goals and contributing 13 assists, and of course his side could still win the quadruple. and the chelsea striker sam kerr has been named women's footballer of the year. the australian is the wsl�*s top scorer with 18 goals this season. she scored in last night's win over tottenham which saw her side move four points clear of arsenal at the top of the table. there you go. that is what she does, isn't it? now to the longest serving manager in the premier league — jurgen klopp's going to be spending longer at anfield too. all the signs were that he'd leave at the end of his contract in 2024, but he's now added another couple of years to his stay on merseyside. a boost to his players? if it is a positive sign for the boys, great. but! if it is a positive sign for the boys, great. but i don't think this will be the one decisive thing. it's good, but we havejust
will be the one decisive thing. it's good, but we have just wanted to guarantee everybody who wants to be here knows what they can expect. well, liverpool's rivals manchester united, i think it's fair to say, have had their struggles this season. they drew with chelsea last night, ceding yet more ground in the race for a champions league place. their interim manager, ralf rangnick, has been confirmed as the new austria manager today. he'lljoin up with them when the premier league finishes next month but will continue in his role as a consultant to united next season. tom middler said it was somewhat unexpected. it is a bit of a surprise. over the last day or two, the rumours circulated again that ralf rangnick was going to be manager of austria, but people tracked the head of the federation's flights, the rumour mill went crazy, but the federation themselves quash the rumours at the time and that was not very long ago, so it has been a
crazy timeline to now stand here today and say ralf rangnick will take over as the austrian boss. the board basically said it was not a problem for them. they looked at the job he is got a manchester united, it is theoretically limited to six days per months, his role at manchester united, so the thought given the international calendar is quite busy but is not the same as a clubjob, we all quite busy but is not the same as a club job, we all know that they thought there was no problem and perhaps just the eval ability of ralf rangnick, getting the estimates waited in his favour —— the availability. he is a big name. budget is the main reason, but the first rumours, basically, most people thought financially it was not possible. i was certainly one of those people who thought he is out of the reach of the austrian national team, since you actually secure him is quite a coup, nothing mostly he knows austrian football, he has been here with red bull salzburg for quite a few years. i
think most people are positive about it, and someone of his stature will be seen as a good appointment for sure. rangnick is set to continue in that consultancy position with united next season — he says he can do that alongside other roles. erik ten hag is taking over the permanent position at united this summer, but the former mancester united defender rio ferdinand, who won six league titles with the club, believes it will take more than a new boss to improve their fortunes. he says big changes are needed if they're to have any chance of returning to their trophy—winning best. personally, i don't think a manager is going to be the answer, i think it is good have to be collective fight and bringing all the different components together and the layers around management, recruitment especially. that is going to... but the culture has to be improved. i think chris yadav and has been talked about as the problem, but without him they would be languishing in about 15th place. —— cristiano. all
—— ole gunnar solskjaer was sacked midseason and the results have gotten worse. there's a lot to do at the club, and i know the new manager is trying to build the foundations of club can start forming some kind of club can start forming some kind of come back into the area where we are used to seeing them. it is not 'ust a are used to seeing them. it is not just a new — are used to seeing them. it is not just a new manager. _ are used to seeing them. it is not just a new manager. people - are used to seeing them. it is not just a new manager. people look| are used to seeing them. it is not l just a new manager. people look at jurgen klopp and say, it is and everything has come through him. yeah, but behind him, there are people doing fantastic work, and they have done. there are people around, there is a good nucleus of people that have facilitated behind—the—scenes. yes, jurgen klopp is at the front of centre of it, and he has to take it on. rio ferdinand on bbc breakfast
there. now, it is all set up for a super saturday in the women's six nations tomorrow. england are in france for a winner—takes—all decider to this year's tournament. both sides have won all four of their matches with bonus points, england ahead only on points difference. but they are on one heck of a run at the moment. jo currie is in bayonne for us. so it's the night before le crunch, and just like last year, this women's six nations title is going to come all down to this fixture between france and england, with both sides coming into tomorrow's game unbeaten. now, it may be relatively quiet here at the moment, although you might be able to hear the mowers just giving the pitch a final once over, but tomorrow this place is going to be absolutely rocking. it's a sell—out crowd. 12,000 fans are expected to turn up. not many of them are expected to be english. and as the england lock abby ward says, they are prepared for the noise, they are prepared for the atmosphere and theyjust can't wait to get going. it is the most brilliantly brutal atmosphere will ever be involved in. i love it. the you know, the games, they love to sell—out especially against us, so if they have 12,000
fans there, maybe 100 will be english, so there is almost 12,000 people there waiting to see you slip up people there waiting to see you slip up or waiting to see that ever. i love that, i thrived in that atmosphere. as you say, is the games you wants to be involved in, so we are incredibly excited to be involved with it in the night. well, england will start this fixture as the favourites, and that's down to the fact they're currently on this incredible winning streak. they now haven't lost in 23 games. the french haven't beaten them in their last ten attempts. and tomorrow, they will be going for their fourth women's six nations consecutive title, but it won't be easy. this is third versus first in the world. and bearing in mind that later on this year, in october, in new zealand, we got a world cup, whichever team lifts this trophy tomorrow, what a boost it's going to be in such a massive year for women's rugby. jo currie, bbc news. huge indeed, cannot wait for that decider tomorrow. huge indeed, cannot wait for that decidertomorrow. onto huge indeed, cannot wait for that decider tomorrow. onto the snooker, and ronnie o'sullivan and john
higgins resumed their semifinal at the crucible. let's check in now. second day of our semifinals, and i think what could be described as a pulsating afternoon in the crucible theatre, because ronnie o'sullivan has reached out a four frame advantage overjohn higgins, and you felt it was coming today?— felt it was coming today? yeah, timm , felt it was coming today? yeah, timmy. they — felt it was coming today? yeah, timmy, they would _ felt it was coming today? yeah, timmy, they would be - felt it was coming today? yeah, timmy, they would be one - felt it was coming today? yeah, l timmy, they would be one player felt it was coming today? yeah, - timmy, they would be one player who would dominate the table and was the more aggressive in every part of his game, if you look at the puddling which are both players, ronnie looks by far the more confidence document body language of both players. it was a matter of time before he established his authority on this match and that is what he has done in the end the. for match and that is what he has done in the end the.— in the end the. for all the world, it looked like _ in the end the. for all the world, it looked like john _ in the end the. for all the world, it looked like john higgins - in the end the. for all the world, it looked like john higgins was i it looked likejohn higgins was going to narrow that gap to two frames, but suddenly we got to a black ball decider! what drama. it felt like a session of the final,

of the 100 metres, finishing with a time of 13.47 seconds. that is it from me. see you a bit later on. hello. the sunnier skies that many of us saw today not necessarily a sign of things to come this bank holiday weekend. in fact, there is actually a bit of rain in the forecast. that may be a good thing in some areas. here's a bit of blue sky that we enjoyed during friday. high pressure has kept us dry for quite a while now, but here comes low pressure, weatherfronts and, yeah, this is some rain into northern ireland and scotland during saturday. now, overnight, the cloud will increase in northern ireland and western scotland along with the breeze, and so here that will keep frost at bay. whereas elsewhere, through southern scotland, wales and england, you can see the blue here. there'll be a patchy frost and the colder spots will be down below freezing going into the morning. a cold start then, but with plenty of sunshine. away from that incoming weather
system that will bring rain across northern ireland and western scotland during the morning, across the rest of scotland into the afternoon and towards north west england and north wales during the afternoon. ahead of that, after all that morning sunshine, cloud's going to increase. there'll be further sunny spells, though. it'll be a warmer day compared with today in east anglia and south east england. it'll be a cooler, windier day with the rain in northern ireland and scotland. and the rain does move south overnight and into sunday. now, it is going to weaken, but it still has rain with it as you can see, particularly through wales, the midlands and the western side of england, but also some outbreaks of rain reaching further east across england on what will be a much milder night. after tonight, there's no frost for the rest of the weekend and into the start of next week. so, sunday then, here's another look at this system. yes, gradually petering out, but still with a little rain. now, as it is weakening, there probably won't be very much rain at all where we've had such a dry april, and particularly across
the east and south east of england. that said, though, will still be damp in places on sunday. still outbreaks of rain on into the afternoon here, where as for scotland and northern ireland, well, well, it'll be mainly dry, there'll be some sunny spells coming through. and for sunday, it's a warmer day, whereas for england and wales, with all of that cloud and rain, it'll be a cooler day. and then for the bank holiday itself, there's a lot of cloud around. there will be a few sunny spells here and there whilst many places will stay dry. there's also a chance of seeing some showers. i think particularly across northern areas of the uk. a colder day in northern scotland, a touch warmer again by then in england and wales.
