now it's time for a look at the weather with helen willetts. hello, although there has been a good deal of dry and bright weather, we have some rain in the north—west. some brightness in northern ireland and eastern scotland and england and wales. but under the starry skies it could turn chilly in england and wales. but generally speaking cloud and rain and it could be a cloudy and rain and it could be a cloudy and grey start for sunday. we should see the sunshine coming out. again we have the fronts close to the north and west bringing more persistent rain, some drizzle, coast and hill fog in north and western parts. the best of the sunshine in the south and east. temperatures should be up on those of today.
particularly in southern and eastern areas. but potentially here some rain through the night and into monday. a cooler and unsettled start to next week. hello, this is bbc news with luxmy gopal. the headlines: celebrations for australia's labour party as it wins the country's general election. it means this man, anthony albanese, is set to form the next government, though it's not yet clear whether it will be a majority or minority administration. ukraine's president zelensky has said that diplomacy is the only way russia's war on his country will end. here, opposition parties demand an explanation from borisjohnson, after he met with the senior civil servant, sue gray, ahead of the publication of her report into lockdown parties at downing street.
now on bbc news it's time for sportsday. hello and welcome to sportsday. i'm olly foster. we are alive at the bbc sport centre. here is what is coming up for you... rangers finish their season on a high, scottish cup winners for a 34th time. dina shines at the diamond league meeting in birmingham, but she was just one of the british winners today. and leclerc has put himself in the best possible place to win the spanish grand prix — he's on pole in barcelona.
good evening. three days after rangers were beaten on penalties in the europa league final, they were taken to extra time again in the scottish cup final, but it was there that they came good, beating hearts 2—0, to lift the trophy for the 34th time in their history. jane dougall reports from hampden park. a last chance for rangers to win a trophy, after missing out on the league and losing out on penalties in the europa league final two days ago. are you guys over the disappointment?— ago. are you guys over the disappointment? ago. are you guys over the disauointment? ., , , disappointment? no, probably i will never aet disappointment? no, probably i will never get over _ disappointment? no, probably i will never get over the _ disappointment? no, probably i will never get over the disappointment, | never get over the disappointment, no. . , never get over the disappointment, no, ., , ., ., never get over the disappointment, no. ., , ., ., ., no. rangers are going to win the cu -. it is no. rangers are going to win the cue- it is the _ no. rangers are going to win the cup. it is the score _ no. rangers are going to win the cup. it is the score going - no. rangers are going to win the cup. it is the score going to - no. rangers are going to win the cup. it is the score going to be? | cup. it is the score going to be? 12-0. cup. it is the score going to be? 12-0- for _ cup. it is the score going to be? 12-0. for hearts, _ cup. it is the score going to be? 12-0. for hearts, winning - cup. it is the score going to be? 12-0. for hearts, winning the i 12—0. for hearts, winning the scottish cup would be an impressive

your supporters a celebration. so rangers have a trophy, but they had to do it the hard way. i think when it went to extra time the fans were worried it might be a repeat of wednesday, when they eventually lost on penalties to frankfurt in the europa league, but they roused themselves, scored two goals, one of them sensational and the fans were able to watch their team lift a trophy at hampden park, the home of scottish football. hearts did not really turn up football. hearts did not really turn up on the day at all, they didn't even really have a shot on target and that is a shame for them because they had really quite an impressive season under their manager robbie, who took them to third just below the old firm. and of course here to the old firm. and of course here to the scottish cup final. it would have been nice to get a trophy at the end of the season, but rangers were by far the better team on the day. for rangers, well, it came close to being a disappointing season. they missed out on the europa league, their rivals, celtic, winning, always a bitter blow, a
hard way to lose out on penalties as well, this was their last chance to get silverware. they got the two goals and did not miss out this time around and so, they are the scottish cup champions and their fans certainly have something to celebrate. jane dougal reporting from hampden park. let's head to wembley now because... afterfour seasons in league one, sunderland are on the way up again. they've been promoted to the championship after beating wycombe wanderers 2—0 in their play—off final at wembley. elliot embleton gave them a half—time lead with a swerving shot that completely fooled the wycombe keeper, david stockdale. wycombe were relegated from the championship last season, but their hopes of an instant return were dashed when ross stewart added a second with about ten minutes go. sunderland were a premier league side only five years ago before back to back relegations saw them drop into the third tier, but there was delirium among their 40,000 fans at wembley as they are finally moving in the right direction. the league two and championship play—off finals are next weekend.
matches at wembley. southampton will be playing in the women's championship next season after beating wolves in their play—off final at stockport�*s edgley park. they're was only one goal — sophia pharoah scored the first half there was only one goal — sophia pharoah scored the first half winner to send them into the second tierfor the first time. wolves finished the match with ten players and will remain in the national league northern premier. it's approaching full time in the women's champions league final in turin and lyon are heading for an eighth european crown. they are beating the holders, barcelona, 3—1. a stunning strike from amandine henry after six minutes gave the french side the lead. the former world player of the year, ada hegerberg, who has struggled with injuries for the past few seasons, doubled the lead. lyon added a third before ballon d'or winner alexia putellas pulled one back for barcelona just before half—time. no sign of a comeback, with 15
minutes remaining, barcelona the strong favourites, but lyon looking very good. harlequins have secured a place in the rugby union premiership semi—finals. that didn't look likely at half—time at twickenham when they trailed gloucester by 17 points but the reigning champions turned it around, winning 28—24. jim lumsden reports. it always helps when you can host the occasional game down the road at the home of english rugby. gloucester cared little and soon repaid the hospitality with a try from ben morgan. a win would boost their semi—final hopes, but victory or a draw would confirm harlequins' place. alex dombrandt�*s converted score brought them level. half an hour gone and the tries were flooding in. two more before the break, both for the visitors, including one of the best of the season. chris harris and gloucester led 24—7 at the break. but they lost concentration and danny care's football skills were seized upon byjoe marchant. oh, he went for the kick!
whistle blows. cheeky! brilliant joe marchand! more of the same followed, as marchant broke through once more. gloucester were reeling as another player completed this side's remarkable recovery and the champions are in the semifinals. jim lumsden, bbc news. here are some of the other results. bath have moved off the bottom of the table after beating london irish 27—24. leicester tigers look like they'll finish the regular season at the top of the table. they beat newcastle falcons 27—5. that top spot would have been secured if saracens slipped up against norrthampton saints, but they have won 42—38. dragons have gone through the urc season without a single home win, losing 21—11 to lions. ruan venter scored the second of the south african club's three tries.
the welsh region finish one off the bottom of the table. ferrari's charles leclerc is on pole for tomorrow's formula one spanish grand prix. the world champion, max verstappen, will be alongside him on the front row in his red bull. lewis hamilton will start from sixth. ben croucher reports. formula i felt familiar this season — ferrari battling red bull. well, enter player three. no, not him, but the greatest one formula i have had for the past few years, but... mercedes have struggled so far this season, but car updates for the spanish grand prix were supposed to boost lewis hamilton and george russell closer to the front. how much closer? that depended on the usual pretenders. mercedes would get a shot at goal, although that final shot at qualifying would miss brit norris. pressure building, first to crack? championship leader charles leclerc. it meant he had it all to do with one flying lap for pole.
as rival max verstappen was hit by power problems, charles leclerc was inch perfect to take his fourth pole in six races, ahead of max verstappen and team—mate carlos. as for that mercedes revival? mussel fourth, hamilton six. on sunday, you may well have seen them at the front already this season. ben croucher, bbc news. well, let's get more from our formula one reporter, jennie gow, who's out in barcelona. good evening, jenny. fairly straight forward, not too many surprises, but charles leclerc put a lot of pressure on himself with that spin?— put a lot of pressure on himself with that spin? didn't he “ust? i soke to with that spin? didn't he “ust? i spoke to him i with that spin? didn't he “ust? i spoke to him afterﬁ with that spin? didn't he just? i spoke to him after qualifying i with that spin? didn't he just? i l spoke to him after qualifying and with that spin? didn't he just? i i spoke to him after qualifying and i said, wow, you made that really tough and that spin, just at the final corner on his lap, the first attempted to pull position was so costly and it meant all the pressure was on him to come out in one lap and perform. and perform he did. it was a stunning pole position for the driver and i think it really reaffirmed to everybody the quality
that he can offer in this championship.- that he can offer in this championship. that he can offer in this chamionshi -. , . ., championship. yes, him and that if there are in — championship. yes, him and that if there are in tune. _ championship. yes, him and that if there are in tune. a _ championship. yes, him and that if there are in tune. a much - championship. yes, him and that if there are in tune. a much better i there are in tune. a much better weekend for mercedes, they have done a few bits and bobs because, they have split the red bulls and four for george russell, the team's best qualifying driver so far this season? it qualifying driver so far this season? , ., ~ , season? it is and i think definitely ureen season? it is and i think definitely green shoot _ season? it is and i think definitely green shoot starting _ season? it is and i think definitely green shoot starting to _ season? it is and i think definitely green shoot starting to show- season? it is and i think definitely | green shoot starting to show there is a revival on the way for mercedes. lewis hamilton was actually pretty frustrated that he cannot drive the car in the same way that russell can, he can't get as much out of it as his new team—mate, so the first time he really signalled his frustration at the situation, but as you say it is encouraging for mercedes, the direction they are going on, i think, is hopefulfor the future. i think, is hopeful for the future. i wasjust going to think, is hopeful for the future. i was just going to ask you know you have touched on that, what is going to great most for lewis hamilton? is it the fact that mercedes still seem a long way off those that ferrari and max verstappen and what he's doing in his red bull or is it to be that he is being continually
outpaced by russell? that has got to rental a bit? ﬁnd outpaced by russell? that has got to rental a bit?— rental a bit? and you honestly think it has today — rental a bit? and you honestly think it has today for _ rental a bit? and you honestly think it has today for the _ rental a bit? and you honestly think it has today for the first _ rental a bit? and you honestly think it has today for the first time, - rental a bit? and you honestly think it has today for the first time, as i it has today for the first time, as i said he showed that frustration and vocalised that frustration. however, what i will say is that actually the to a not very dissimilar when it comes to their qualifying pace. they are gossip getting a lot out of the car, but it is the car's potential that is the problem. they have done a lot of testing between the last race and this. they had one filming day and they capitalised. so i think knowing they capitalised. so i think knowing they are going in the right direction with the philosophy of the car is key to lewis hamilton. there is hope there, even if today his performance was not as good as he would have wanted.— performance was not as good as he would have wanted. yes, still with a lot of racing — would have wanted. yes, still with a lot of racing to _ would have wanted. yes, still with a lot of racing to go. _ would have wanted. yes, still with a lot of racing to go. lots _ would have wanted. yes, still with a lot of racing to go. lots more - would have wanted. yes, still with a lot of racing to go. lots more from i lot of racing to go. lots more from jenny gowen and the formula i team on five live tomorrow and that's spanish grand prix, thanks.
in rugby league's superleague hull kr were beaten 20 points to 8 by catalans dragons. the french side scored 3 tries to just the one for the robins at craven park. their third came from the club's top try scorer fouad yaha as they move up to second in the table. hull kr have lost their last four games and are seventh. elsewhere hull fc beat wigan 31—22. the second diamond league meeting of the year was a good one for some of the british atheltes in birmingham — dina asher—smith won the women's 100 metres, beating shericka jackson by a hundredth of a second! daryll neeta was third. asher—smith and neeta then joined forces to win the 4 by 100m relay for great britain. this is my first 100 of the season, you know? it is a long season, so we're easing our way into it, and it was good. it was a very strong field. i could have done a few things differently, if i am being picky, but you know... you know, the first one is always a bit... but i'm very happy with that time, very happy to win in this
temperature and with this kind of field as well, so it is good. it was good. britain's olympic silver medallist, keely hodgkinson, won the 800 metres. she beat france's renelle lamote in second and jamaica's natoya goule in third. i'm just happy to be now healthy, running well and in good shape and i hope to be able to build on this, have a good race next week and improve on the new regime for the classics. yes, it is all good, still only may, still early days, still early in the season. you know, i wanted to smash it, still good, just get one down. and yes, just build on it, really, that is it. two months to go for the championships. britain's laura muir opened her season with victory in the 1500m, holding off australianjessica hull. fellow britjemma reekie finished in fifth. iamso i am so happy, yes. i could not have wished for more, it is my first race to be on uk soil this summer, but i am just happy i am here. i didn't even think i would be here, so... i have had the biggest week of training since january this week, so
i was like, oh, i training since january this week, so iwas like, oh, i hope my training since january this week, so i was like, oh, i hope my legs will be ok! to do it on the first run on turned legs, not 100% of their get, but i'm very happy. canada's aaron brown won the men's 100 metres ahead of yohan blake withjerome blake third. nethaneel mitchell—blake was the highest finishing brit in fifth. trayvon bromell and zharnell hughes were both disqualified for false starts. and some of great britain's para—athletes were also in birmingham — world record holder sophie hahn triumphed in the t38100m race. let's have a quick look at some of the day's headlines. kylian mbappe has agreed a deal in principle to stay at paris st—germain. the french international had been heavily linked with a move to real madrid this summer. britain's simon yates claimed his second stage win of this year's giro d'italia, as richard carapaz claimed the overall lead from juan pedro lopez after stage 1a.
history was made in the irish 2,000 guineas today when native trail won at the curragh. that makes charlie appleby the first trainer to win both the irish and english guineas with different horses in the same season. and cameron norrie has won his fourth atp title in the space ofjust ten months. the world number 11 beat alex molcan from slovakia in three sets to win the lyon open. norrie will play his first round match at the french open on monday. the last few groups are starting their third round at the us pga championship in oklahoma. amongst the early starters, it's been a very disappointing day for tiger woods. he went into the water here on the sixth as he triple bogeyed the hole. there were seven other bogeys in his round as he finished on 12 over par.
rory mcilroy has just teed off and has parred the first hole, he had led after the first round, but is five shots behind the leader, will zalatoris, who is on 9 under. we mentioned cameron norrie in the french open that starts tomorrow. it will be emma raducanu's first french open — she's seeded 12th in paris. the us open champion had been a doubt after pulling out of the italian open last week with a back problem, but she says she's fit. iam learning i am learning about my body, for sure, but i am very happy to be continuing my preparations for the french open and to be able to play this tournament and fortunately i don't have to miss this grand slam, so yes, that is definitely, you know, a really positive thing, that i can... because i really look forward to these big moments in the big tournaments, so yes, i am looking forward to continuing.
our tennis correspondent russell fuller is in position for the start of the tournament and i began by asking him about raducanu. i think she has played well on the field, she has had five wins and a couple of wins in stuttgart at an indoor event and a couple of wins at madrid, where conditions are a bit quicker and certainly suited to her game style, which was a bonus, but she has had consistent victory problems, as she hinted at, throughout the season and that is not altogether surprising at all because here we are dealing with a 19—year—old on herfirst full year 19—year—old on her first full year on 19—year—old on herfirst full year on tour. her body is just not robust enough and she missed that crucial training block in september because she contracted covid atjust the wrong time and was out of action for three weeks, but the back is a major concern going into the french open. she retired from herfirst concern going into the french open. she retired from her first round match in rome. she has been in the gym quite a lot this week, practising from monday, so i think she will be ok certainly to start
this match and hopefully finish it as well. there is no suggesting there is a particular problem going in, but we know if the matches get drawn out on this physically brutal surface to play, there has to be a question about her robustness at the moment. , , ., ., ., ., question about her robustness at the moment. , , ., ., ., ~ ., moment. yes, when you look at the women's draw. _ moment. yes, when you look at the women's draw, no _ moment. yes, when you look at the women's draw, no one _ moment. yes, when you look at the women's draw, no one can - moment. yes, when you look at the women's draw, no one can look - moment. yes, when you look at the . women's draw, no one can look beyond igor, ken bay, the form that she is in? 28 igor, ken bay, the form that she is in? j ~ , ., igor, ken bay, the form that she is in? j~ , ., ., in? 28 wins in a row, five tournaments _ in? 28 wins in a row, five tournaments won - in? 28 wins in a row, five tournaments won in - in? 28 wins in a row, five tournaments won in a - in? 28 wins in a row, five i tournaments won in a row, in? 28 wins in a row, five - tournaments won in a row, she is in? 28 wins in a row, five _ tournaments won in a row, she is the overwhelming favourite, she has won it before, the only grand slam she has one, that was staged in october 2020 because of the pandemic. what we don't know is shall she will do with the pressure of being world number one and the favourite in a grand slam for the first time. she admitted that she knew this position would fall on her shoulders, but she has had left absolutely brilliantly so far and she is the clear favourite, iga swiatek has played the absolute best tennis and as we
say, we will see whether she now feels that she is the play everybody else's targeting. ﬁn feels that she is the play everybody else's targeting-— else's targeting. on the men's side of thins, else's targeting. on the men's side of things, rafael _ else's targeting. on the men's side of things, rafael nadal _ else's targeting. on the men's side of things, rafael nadal the - else's targeting. on the men's side of things, rafael nadal the king - else's targeting. on the men's side of things, rafael nadal the king of| of things, rafael nadal the king of clay, nursing this sonic fit problem he is going to always have to deal with. does that make him a vulnerable player in the field? that is the reality _ vulnerable player in the field? that is the reality of _ vulnerable player in the field? that is the reality of life _ vulnerable player in the field? twat is the reality of life for rafael nadal, he will turn 36 during this french open. this fit problem, we thought it could be career ending years ago, but obviously not. congenital condition, it has got worse during lockdown and as it is a problem. it can disappear or rather, the pain can subside, but when it gets out of control, as we saw in rome, it was really impossible for him to be competitive, so it is very much a case of keeping fingers crossed for nadal and hoping his foot is not too painful for getting through the fortnight. novak djokovic won in rome, so he is a favourite, and he has already won
four titles this year, so why not? nadal won it the other year, so why can't djokovic do the same thing? let's return to football, because by this time tomorrow, the premier league season will be over. manchester city or liverpool will be champions. it's in city's hands. they lead their rivals by a point and have a superior goal difference, so liverpool must beat wolves and hope city slip up against aston villa. at the bottom of the table either burnley or leeds will be relegated. patrick gearey reports and so, it has come to this. up and down the country, at the top and the bottom, it is all stacked against the final match. don't blink now. manchester city and liverpool have been racing against the clouds for weeks. city sit nearest to the sun and will win the title if they beat aston villa. their manager will want to keep it that simple. just aston villa. their manager will want to keep it that simple.— to keep it that simple. just don't rive u- to keep it that simple. just don't give up and _ to keep it that simple. just don't give no and do — to keep it that simple. just don't give up and do exactly _ to keep it that simple. just don't give up and do exactly what - to keep it that simple. just don't give up and do exactly what you | to keep it that simple. just don't - give up and do exactly what you have done the last month with all of the games we have played, at home, away

hampden park. that is it for me here at the bbc sport centre, goodbye. hello there. the last few days have brought some much needed rainfall to some of the gardens across the united kingdom and with the weather pattern remaining unsettled for the coming days we will see more rain. no pressure, for example, sunday sitting towards the north and west, add another area of pressure approaching from the south. some drier weather around costs southern and eastern areas, the lines share of the sunshine here, but i think it will be quite drizzly and damp across the irish sea coasts, misty and drizzly, coastalfog across the irish sea coasts, misty and drizzly, coastal fog across the irish hills, certainly persistent band of rain from northern scotland as well, rain included on sunday. otherwise because you have that warmer air pushing northwards, it will be a milder day, for the most
part, but across the northern half of scotland that rain pushing through during monday night, this next area of low pressure approaching from the south bringing some rain, and also some warmer air with it, but that will slip away as the northerly wind sets in and disappears off into the north sea. but for the start of monday and threw sunday night we could see some heavy rain pushing on across southern and eastern parts of england and behind it the shower is falling on that north—westerly, it really unsettled day with heavy showers, the odd rumble of thunder and hail as well, temperatures down to 15-18 , and hail as well, temperatures down to 15—18 , and that is because of the change in wind direction, that north—westerly, which stays with us for tuesday, just meandering up into the north sea, so could drag some rain into eastern coastal areas, but what we will find is because of the north—westerly later on tuesday and into the start of wednesday we get cooler air drifting its way south through the middle of the week. on tuesday, that north—westerly with us
for much of the time, bringing further showers or longer spells of rain, of course on strong sunshine in between, but only 15—18 , which is about average for the time of year. it will feel pleasant enough if you are out of the breeze, but quite a breezy day and potentially a windy day on wednesday for the time of year, as this next area of low pressure and its attendant weather fronts rattles in bringing more rain. it doesn't look like i wash out, but some heavy showers developing on that front end as it moves eastwards, feeding up from that war may sunshine when it comes with the clouds and a pretty windy day as well, up to 30—40 mph in the north, but a pretty breezy further south as well. wednesday is those weather fronts start to slip away eastwards, we start to see the arrival of high pressure in from the south and west, so thursday will be a day when it starts to dry up a bit, the wind is easing down, the cloud breaking up. there is or is going to be a chance with the low pressure to the north with these weather systems fitting in to
north—western areas, keeping it rather cool here, but elsewhere 17-19 c. for rather cool here, but elsewhere 17—19 c. for the end of the week, it is looking for now as if the azores high will move its way in, drying things up and settling things down and also bringing some warmer air. it is going to keep those weather fronts at bay, still the risk of some rain from northern areas, but because we will start to drag in the airfrom because we will start to drag in the air from the south, some continental air, things are set to get a little bit warmer. not very hot, but temperatures will lift into the low to mid 20s once again. so it is looking drier by the end of the week. the main uncertainty is how far north that azores high bring that drier and warmer air because still there will be some rain around, mainly in the north.
