such a feel—good moment for the country. everything just felt positive and joyous and that is a really massive moment for women's football. it's notjust the response as well, borisjohnson didn't attend the game at wembley on sunday whereas olaf scholz did. boris johnson hasn't yet hosted the successful women's team and downing street yet. downing street argues it haven't because he's been in northern ireland for the funeral of the former first minister. no northern ireland for the funeral of the formerfirst minister. no plans so farfor the pm the formerfirst minister. no plans so far for the pm to host the england women's game. i think the team... ithink england women's game. i think the team... i think the risk here is that this was such a massive moment on sunday and i think there is a real widespread feeling that we need to capitalise on this and use it as a springboard for further progressing women's football in this country and access to football that
women and girls have. i guess what this front page touches on is this idea that the government really isn't rising to the occasion, i suppose it will come under pressure to perhaps change the stance and perhaps look like at least it is rising to the occasion and reflecting the enormity of what has happened in the last few days. i thank you very much. there seems to be a real grassroots movement here. that's it for the papers this hour. adam payne and natalie fahy will be back again at 11:30. goodbye for now. hello, i'm marc edwards with your sport. a great day for team england.
adam peaty was absolutely ecstatic tonight. he says he has his spark back. he put the disappointment of missing the podium in the 100m breaststroke behind him to win gold at the commonwealth games in birmingham. peaty has struggled for form since his return from a broken foot, and he admitted to struggling with motivation. if anyone knows me, ifight. that means so much to me. it means so much to me because what i've been through these last few months, last year, last five years. 37 gold medals available today, and england's domination continues in the gymnastics, with jake jarman making history today. his victory in the vault final meant he takes home four gold medals. no english male gymnast has ever won so many at a single commonwealth games. there was also another gold forjoe fraser at his home games, and gold for alice kinsella. austin halewood reports.
the final day of artistic gymnastics and arena birmingham has been how and arena birmingham has been the hottest ticket so far for english fans. the hosts had already won ten medals, and with this man competing, you got the feeling there is more to come. jake jarman already had three golds in the bag before the men's full final and once again he was the man to beat, with more difficulty final and once again, he was the man to beat, with more difficulty than any other competitor. the relief on jarman's face when he landed the second vault was clear to see. that will go into the lead without doubt. atjust 20 years old, jarman became england's most successful male gymnast at a single games. i can't quite comprehend what hasjust happened. i've come out here today and just wanting to do my absolute best and enjoy every moment, and the result i've come out with is... i'm overthe moon, i'm absolutely ecstatic, and i couldn't have asked
for a better day. but england'sjoe fraser packs a punch and he sealed his third title in the parallel bars final. it's an event he's been a row champion of before, so it was no surprise when he landed another gold. and once again the silver to another english 1—2. being in this arena has filled me with so much joy and i have wanted to give so much more in my training. and being in my home town with a home crowd, performing out here has been one of my proudest moments to date. that meant england took all but one event goal... alice kinsella in the last discipline taking gold in the women's floor. england's 16th gymnastics medal of the games, and after nearly missing out on some silverware in two other events, kinsella saved her best for last, but how it was worth the wait. austin halewood, bbc news.
there was a huge win for team wales in the athletics. there was a highly—anticipated contest between livvy breen and england's sophie hahn in the women's t37/38 ioo—metres final. and it was livvy breen who came out on top. hahn, the reigning paralympic champion, looked on course for victory, but breen powered through to take victory with a personal best time of 12.83 seconds. hannah cockroft picked up her first commonwealth title, leading home an english clean sweep of the podium in the 100m t33/t34 wheelchair final. wales have won their second gold of the games. it came in the lawn bowls, in a very tight match against england — jarrad breen and daniel salmon beating jamie walker and sam tolchard 19—18, to win the men's pairs at victoria park. welsh cyclist geraint thomas was watching and tweeted his congratulations. look how happy everyone is. sam also
won the title four years ago in australia. amazing. i would never even have dreamt of that happening. obviously, i always wanted to get to the commonwealth games, but to win two gold medals now, it's just beyond my wildest dreams, to be honest. there's been some confusion in the formula one. driver oscar piastri says he will not replace fernando alonso at alpine next season after the team said he would. alpine made an announcement that the 21—year—old would race "in line with commitments made by the team to the young australian". but then piastri tweeted that he hadn't actually signed a contract with them for 2023, and he won't be driving for them next year. an alpine spokesperson said in response, "we believe we are legally correct in our statement, but don't have anything further to say."
hanging bya hanging by a thread — some football for you now. rangers will have their work cut out if they want to stay in this season's champions league. they lost the first leg of their third qualifying round match 2—0 away to union saint gilloise. teddy teuma gave the belgian side the lead in the first half, before dante vanzier made it two from the penalty spot. the return legs at ibrox on tuesday night. and finally, away from the commonwealth games — in cricket, england'sjonny bairstow takes a rest out rather than play in the hundred. bairstow has been in blistering form and was secheduled to play for welsh fire in the opening match of the competition on wednesday. he says that he's had a hectic few months and wants to take a breather before the test series against south africa. it starts on the 17th of august. that's all your sport for now. from me, marc edwards, and the rest of the team, bye—bye. hello. another warm and muggy start to the day on wednesday.
a little bit more sunshine around, admittedly, but turning fresh across scotland and northern ireland through the day. some outbreaks of rain to begin with turning more showery, though heavy on the odd rumble of thunder, maybe into the far north of england, too. misty, murky repatriated drizzle southwest through towards the west — that pushes towards east anglia southeast. not much rain on it though, and it will break up to sunny spells later. and in fact, a lot more sunshine across the country compared with tuesday afternoon. still very humid heat tangling in the southeast, but elsewhere, warm but not quite as humid as it was then through wednesday warm, but not quite as humid as it was. then, through wednesday evening and overnight, whilst much of england will stay dry, there'll be a few showers in northern england. northern ireland will see some more showers continue, some of them on the heavy side, but certainly turning a bit fresher still some showers around, but many places on thursday and friday will be dry.
