6:30 pm
cloud and showery rain coming in from the west. the winds will start to strengthen. the cloud will creep steadily eastwards during the day. there should not be that much rain across the east. it is worth bearing in mind, if you've got the sunshine, you've starting to reach the peak of the grass pollen season. going into friday, we have got the remnants of an ex—tropical storm which means windier weather conditions to the far north and west. some showers on friday and saturday, but for england and wales, for the start of the weekend, it looks likely to be dry and bright with a good deal of sunshine with temperatures back up. a reminder of our top story...
6:31 pm
more travel misery, including the biggest daily rise in petrol prices for 17 years. that's all from the bbc news at six so it's goodbye from me and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are. hello, and welcome to sportsday — i'm sarah mulkerrins. on the eve of the new saudi—backed golf venture, the big—name players taking part are being grilled over their participation. if the money was right, is there anyway you wouldn't play? i
6:32 pm
if the money was right, is there anyway you wouldn't play? i don't need to answer— anyway you wouldn't play? i don't need to answer that _ anyway you wouldn't play? i don't need to answer that question. - world cup celebrations be gone — wales are back in action in the nations league, with a tricky tie at home to netherlands. and just three months after giving birth, cyclist elinor barker talks to us about making the wales team for the commonwealth games. you're very welcome along to sportsday. is this the eve of a new era for men's golf? the controversial saudi—backed series gets under way tomorrow. and today, more reports of yet more big name players signing up — bryson dechambeau, a former us open champion, patrick reed, a former masters champion, and rickie fowler all lined up to join the likes of phil mickleson and
6:33 pm
dustinjohnson. the liv invitational series has been dogged with questions over where it's money is coming from, and also how it also threatens the current structures in the game. there have been threats of sanctions and bans, of forfeiting future ryder cup hopes for anyone who signs up. there's a huge sense that golf is at a significant crossroads. the bbc sports editor dan roan is at the centurion club, where the event will take place. there seems to be developments almost every hour of every day in the story, we are nearly there at this getting under way, and today potentially more names signing up? absolutely, you mentioned some of those names, two of the most controversial and talk about players and world golf, both major winners. it's something of a turn of events
6:34 pm
because price and dechambeau said he would stay with the pga and this wasn't the right time for him to branch out on this venture. but his agent has appeared to suggest the reports are true and he has signed up. there is due to be an announcement before the end of this three—day event which gets under way tomorrow here at the century and club. there was a pro—am of an earlier on where some big names and had an opportunity to have a practice, and it's becoming very real now. —— century and club. you mentioned rickie fowler as well, and there's this growing sense of momentum. the more players that do join up, more will follow, and that will be very ominous indeed for the established bodies and world golf such as the pga tour. we've seen the likes of dustinjohnson, for example, quit that to her, he's resigned it to avoid being suspended. there's talk of sanctions for those who take part in this
6:35 pm
tournament and legal action, as well. this could get very ugly indeed, very toxic and divisive. johnson is the top ranked player to sign up, a former two—time major winner, former world number one as well. he's reported to be earning a staggering £120 million to be part of this eight match siri, that's before any prize money he may win which is also at record levels. i had the opportunity to speak to him and ask him why he was taking part in whether it was worth the cost. for me, i played the tour for a for me, i played the tourfor a long time, i love the tour, i'm very thankfulfor time, i love the tour, i'm very thankful for everything that it's done for me and my life. and this is just kind of a new chapter, and i felt like this was what was best for me and my family and what i'm trying to do, which is be at home more and spend more time with the kids and
6:36 pm
paulina. so talking with my team and everyone about it, it's just something that we felt was best for me. . , . ., something that we felt was best for me. . , ., ., something that we felt was best for me. ._ ., ., me. finally, what do you say to those who _ me. finally, what do you say to those who would _ me. finally, what do you say to those who would argue - me. finally, what do you say to those who would argue you're l those who would argue you're allowing yourself to be used for saudi pr, given the concerns over human rights controversies in the country and the source of the funding. what's your response to those concerns?— funding. what's your response to those concerns? first and foremost, a professional— those concerns? first and foremost, a professional golfer, _ those concerns? first and foremost, a professional golfer, and _ those concerns? first and foremost, a professional golfer, and this - those concerns? first and foremost, a professional golfer, and this is - a professional golfer, and this is just an opportunity to play golf on a world stage, you know, just like if i was playing on the pga tour. so my response to that is just that i'm here to play golf and enjoy it, and have a good time post and try to grow the game across the world. interesting to pick up on that last answer because it is a question that all players are being faced with, and it's also been quite tense and a lot of those press conferences? it’s lot of those press conferences? it's a notable lot of those press conferences? it�*s a notable and it's not what these
6:37 pm
guys are use to, and they are suddenly being tasked with answering pretty difficult questions from us in the media about geopolitics and ethics, and the morality of taking part in a competition which critics argue is the latest attempt, latest example by saudi arabia through their sovereign wealth fund pif, also newcastle united to invest in global sport as a means of furnishing the country positive reputation and distracting away from its poor human rights record, and they are having to explain themselves. it can be very uncomfortable on occasions, and on top of that they must also deal with questions as to why they're doing it, given they are already mostly very wealthy. not all here of course, but the big names are, and they face the prospect of being ruled out of the ryder cup, even people like ian poulter and lee westwood, there could be captains in the future. as dustinjohnson has a mentioned, this affects them rules
6:38 pm
amount of taking part in that wonderful competition in the future. they are agreed to be used as a pr stunt by the saudis, effectively. coming to the other side of the debate in a moment, we will hear from poulter and westwood now. but before then, phil mickelson who has just returned from a self imposed for absence from the game after he made controversial comments about the saudi backers of the event, calling them scary. he also had some criticisms of the pga tour, accusing it of obnoxious greed, then he left the public spotlight for several months, going into hiding. in the nick of time, would you believe it, he's appeared in time to play another tournament, he's appeared in time to play anothertournament, but he's appeared in time to play another tournament, but he's netting $200 million is the most effective name, and here's what he had to say along with westwood and poulter.
6:39 pm
i don't condone human rights violations_ i don't condone human rights violations at all. nobody here does, throughout— violations at all. nobody here does, throughout the world. and i'm certainly— throughout the world. and i'm certainly aware of what has happened with jamaal certainly aware of what has happened withjamaal khashoggi, and it is terrible — withjamaal khashoggi, and it is terrible. i've also seen the good that the — terrible. i've also seen the good that the game of golf has done throughout history, and i believe that live — throughout history, and i believe that live golf will do a lot of good for the _ that live golf will do a lot of good for the game, as well for stock. is there anywhere in the world you wouldn't play? if vladimir putin had a tournament, would you play in it? i'm not even going to comment on speculation. is there anywhere you wouldn't play on a moral basis? i don't need to answer that question. lee, do you want to answer that question? you're just asking us to answer
6:40 pm
a hypothetical question there. their moral questions, aren't they? you really get a sense of the atmosphere there. has there been any word from the saudi backed of things? word from the saudi backed of thins? . ., ., , things? the counter argument they ut things? the counter argument they put forward — things? the counter argument they put forward as _ things? the counter argument they put forward as that _ things? the counter argument they put forward as that is _ things? the counter argument they put forward as that is this - things? the counter argument they put forward as that is this is - things? the counter argument they put forward as that is this is an - put forward as that is this is an innovative format, it's condensed, shorter and played over three days, there no cut, its a shotgun start so all players begin simultaneously, so all players begin simultaneously, so their playing days much shorter. there's live music, you can see behind me the stage, there's lots of innovations around the place, it's not playing for world ranking points. and it's the latest example of a sport trying to improvise to challenge the established order, and they believe this is about growth as much as it is about greed, they say it's about attracting new audiences to the game and shaking golf up after a period of time in which they say it is in need of that. i had a
6:41 pm
brief opportunity to speak to the governor of pif, the saudi investment fund that's backing this tournament, and of course they are now the owners of newcastle united, having taken over last year. he's the chairman of newcastle united, he hasn't spoken publicly since taking over the club, but he arrived here earlier today — he's a very keen golf enthusiast, playing alongside mickelson in the opening pro—am of the day. here's what he had to say when i asked him a couple questions about this to her. dan roan, bbc news. there's been criticism about this to her, people saying it's borscht washing, but what can it do for golf? it’s saying it's borscht washing, but what can it do for golf?- what can it do for golf? it's the bi thin what can it do for golf? it's the big thing in _ what can it do for golf? it's the big thing in golf. _ what can it do for golf? it's the big thing in golf, and _ what can it do for golf? it's the big thing in golf, and we - what can it do for golf? it's the big thing in golf, and we are i what can it do for golf? it's the . big thing in golf, and we are going to enjoy it. that's why i'm here. i'm going to play the pro—am and have fun, hopefully fun playing with 55 and six players. thank you very much. . . r'
6:42 pm
55 and six players. thank you very much. ., ., ,~' i. 55 and six players. thank you very much. ., ., , 55 and six players. thank you very much. ., «g ., much. can i ask you quickly about the suggestions _ much. can i ask you quickly about the suggestions of _ much. can i ask you quickly about the suggestions of sports - much. can i ask you quickly about i the suggestions of sports washing? i'm not really sure... as you can see, not commenting on these claims that this is effectively an attempt by the saudi authorities to sports wash their image away from the formal public comments there, insisting this is a genuine attempt to shake up the game and they believe it's a good investment, as well, and that they can make money from it. and i guess the more of these big—name signings there are, perhaps the more realistic that becomes. having said that, there are doubts overjust how popular this will prove both audiences, there's a lack of ticket sales this week, it's not on any mainstream television output so far, it will be streamed so it remains to be seen to what extent this does shake up the game, there's no doubt it's proving very divisive even at this early stage.— it's proving very divisive even at this early stage. football now — and wales will have
6:43 pm
to move away from world cup celebration mode tonight, as they are back in action — this time in the nations league — and will be taking on a very tricky team in netherlands. we saw the joyous scenes in cardiff on sunday as they reached a first world cup in 64 years. and, bearing in mind what the players have been through, manager robert page is expected to make several changes. thomas daffyd has more. three days on from some incredible scenes here at the cardiff city stadium, wales finally clinched the place at the world cup finals for the first time since 1958. it's back to business tonight, that's the message from the manager bob page, it's the netherlands in the nation's league who are hoping to extend a ten game unbeaten run. the former... has yet to taste defeat in his third run, and rob page says he is relishing the chance to go head—to—head with him. relishing the chance to go head-to-head with him. he's an

6:46 pm
of the day's other football news. liverpool have rejected a second bid of £30 million from bayern munich for sadio mane. the senegal striker has scored 120 goals liverpool since arriving from southampton in 2016. he'll be out of contract next summer. chris kirchner�*s attempt to buy derby county is in danger of collapsing. bbc radio derby say he's failed to close the deal, and funds promised to pay wages have not arrived. the american businessman still insists the takeover will happen. the start of the trial of sepp blatter and michel platini has been delayed by a day, after blatter said he was too ill to testify because of chest pains. the pair were due to go on trial on wednesday accused of fraud, which they both deny. the isle of man tt race organisers have confirmed that they named the wrong french sidecar competitor to have died in an incident on saturday. in a statement, they said rider cesar chanal had now been confirmed
6:47 pm
as having died in the crash. on saturday, they wrongly said passenger olivier lavorel had died. he remains in a critical condition in aintree hospital in liverpool. both competitors' families have been informed and they say a "thorough review of the processes relating to the identification of competitors will take place in due course". yorkshire's former head coach andrew gale has won an unfair dismissal claim against the club, after he was sacked in the wake of the azeem rafiq racism scandal. gale was one of 16 members of staff dismissed by yorkshire over the winter. ajudge has now found that six of those employees have a "well—founded" case against the county. our reporter patrick gearey has more. gale and five other employees who were sacked by yorkshire have chosen to take the county to an employment tribunal. ajudge at to take the county to an employment tribunal. a judge at the tribunal
6:48 pm
has ruled their cases are well—founded. no yorkshire say all 16 of this acting dutch sackings they made in the wake of the azeem rafiq racism scandal were justified. they do acknowledge the judge must make finding that no disciplinary process was followed. they say they are accepting that in order to reduce the amount of time taken up ijy reduce the amount of time taken up by these tribunals. so the next step is to find a remedy — that might come in the form of an agreement between the employees in yorkshire, or it might take a new hearing. either way, the fallout from what happened last winter in yorkshire could last well into the summer. legendary india batter mithali raj has announced her retirement from international cricket. the 39—year—old retires as the all—time leading run—scorer in women's one—day internationals and also captained her side to two world cup finals. dust with 7500 runs over 50. she also remains india's highest run
6:49 pm
score in t20 internationals, having retired from that format in 2014. she's led the side into world cup finals, the only to do so. let's have a quick look at some of the other stories making the sports news today. dan evans is through to the quarterfinals of the nottingham open, after a straight sets win over italian thomas fabiano. evans is still yet to drop a set in nottingham. he comfortably raced to victory taking the second set 6—love. things didn't go so well for fellow brit heather watson, though. she was beaten in straight sets by viktoria golubic of switzerland — the swiss winning 7—5, 6—1 to reach the quarterfinals. anthonyjoshua's rematch against oleksandr usyk is likely to be held on 20 august in the middle east. ukrainian usyk beatjoshua on points last year to claim the wbo, ibf, and wba titles. fast bowler ollie robinson is unlikely to play for england until the test series against south africa in august because of an ongoing back issue.
6:50 pm
robinson was not selected for the first test against new zealand. now, today marks just 50 days to go until the commonwealth games get under way in birmingham — and no doubt we'll be reporting on some amazing stories and feats during it. and cyclist elinor barker may well be featuring — she's made the wales team just three months after giving birth to her son, nico. barker won commonwealth gold in the points race back in 2018. she's been speaking to tom brown. it's been quite hard, getting back into training and trying to build my fitness back—up. i'm under no illusions that i'm the same athlete i was a year ago at this point in time, but i deftly feel like i'm getting back to my usual self. it's been all right on the bank, actually. i didn't ride my bike for actually. i didn't ride my bike for a month at all, and that was just a medically no go. and from there it
6:51 pm
was really gradual, so my first session was literally five minutes. that was all i'm allowed to do, i had a day off the next day to make sure everything was all right and i hadn't caused any damage or anything. and then after that, i was allowed to do 15 minutes, then i had two days off. it slowly progressed that way, which i found really frustrating, to be honest, because getting on a kit for five frustrating, to be honest, because getting on a kit forfive minutes just doesn't feel worth it. but that's increased week by week until i think probably next week, maybe the following week, i feel like i'll have a normal training week in terms of hours. maybe not a huge training week, but a fairly normal training week. �* , . , week, but a fairly normal training week. �*, ., , ., ~ week. it's all very well talking about coming _ week. it's all very well talking about coming back _ week. it's all very well talking about coming back to - week. it's all very well talking about coming back to training | week. it's all very well talking - about coming back to training and returning to the bike after giving birth, but of course you know have yourson birth, but of course you know have your son to look after, a three—month—old baby in tow for a lot of this. how have you balance to being a mum with also being an elite
6:52 pm
cyclist again? it’s being a mum with also being an elite cyclist again?— cyclist again? it's been a crash course in _ cyclist again? it's been a crash course in being _ cyclist again? it's been a crash course in being organised, - cyclist again? it's been a crash course in being organised, to i cyclist again? it's been a crash i course in being organised, to be honest. and it's sometimes been a crash course in accepting that i can't arrange... and simultaneously to off his back, all these disasters that happen just as you're about to leave the door. you have to be as organised as possible, but also as relaxed as possible. but to be honest, we've got lots of support under us, and my friends have been phenomenal, as have world cycling. i think having all that support around has made it so much easier to balance all these things. tiffany youngs, the wife of former england and leicester hooker tom, has died. she was diagnosed with a lymphatic cancer in 2014, prompting tom to step away from england's tour of new zealand to care for his wife. her brother—in—law, ben youngs, also opted not to tour with the british and irish lions
6:53 pm
in 2017 to spend time with family. leicester said they were "deeply saddened" by the news. a national charity says disabled people feel left out of the uk's sporting covid recovery. the activity alliance has spoken to nearly 2,000 people for its annual activity survey, and has found that disabled people are "feeling forgotten". the findings really are troubling, and he gives us the evidence to demonstrate that while there is considerable activity building back from covid, disabled people are feeling left behind and not necessarily built into this building back environment for sport and activity. i think there's four key actions we are really calling for across the sector to make happen, about involving disabled people in the decisions that they are making around bringing back activity. it's about supporting disabled people to feel like they are included as the
6:54 pm
sector recover. ensuring the workforce can be really inclusive and disabled people in activity. and for us, it's something that's been echoed a few years now about making sure health care professionals can be built into those conversations as well, because we know that disabled people really do trust health care professionals. and finally, it's been some year for british judoka lucy renshall. her first appearance at the olympics last summer didn't go to plan, after being eliminated in the first round. but she's one to keep an eye on for paris 2024, afterjust being made the world number one in the 63—kilo category. i spoke to her about that achievement and her plans for a big year ahead. it's amazing, like it's been a dream and a goal of mine since i was young. especially at the start of this year, me on my coach, jamie, we wrote down some goals — one of them
6:55 pm
—— world number one was always a top goal to reach. and it'sjust such good news, we worked so hard back at the national training centre and i've been there for nine years now. so to come out world number one is a dream come true, really. find so to come out world number one is a dream come true, really.— dream come true, really. and what does it mean _ dream come true, really. and what does it mean for— dream come true, really. and what does it mean for british _ dream come true, really. and what does it mean for british judo, - dream come true, really. and what does it mean for british judo, as i does it mean for britishjudo, as well? because it's the first world number one win since natalie powell backin number one win since natalie powell back in 2017 — what do you think it means to everybody involved? i back in 2017 - what do you think it means to everybody involved? i think it's 'ust means to everybody involved? i think it's just amazing _ means to everybody involved? i think it'sjust amazing news, _ means to everybody involved? i think it'sjust amazing news, it _ means to everybody involved? i think it'sjust amazing news, it shows i it's just amazing news, it shows that what we're doing back at the national training is really working will stop we haven't had a roll number one for five years now since natalie. notjust me, but the whole team is given confidence moving forwards, because if i can do it and on the face of the national training centre, why can't all the other team do that? in centre, why can't all the other team do that? , ., ., do that? in terms of what you're doinu do that? in terms of what you're doing now _ do that? in terms of what you're doing now and — do that? in terms of what you're doing now and the _ do that? in terms of what you're doing now and the confidence i do that? in terms of what you're doing now and the confidence ofj doing now and the confidence of being rule number one, talk us through this year. i understand qualification for the paris olympics will start in the next month or so?
6:56 pm
