nearly 170,000 tonnes of grain and sunflower oil leaves on a second convoy of ships out of ukaine after russia's blockade caused global shortages. liz truss promises a cut in national insurance within weeks if she wins the conservative party leadership race. her rival rishi sunak disagrees and says he wants to give more direct help to those hardest hit by inflation. taiwan accuses china of practising for an invasion of its island after beijing expressed fury over us house speaker, nancy pelosi's visit to taipei. it is time now to get a look at the sport, and chetan is there. it's a
9:31 am
bumper day here at the commonwealth games, the penultimate day, with 45 gold medals to be one, easily the busiest games day that we have had so far. the women's road racing, england's anna henderson among the competitors and matt. as for last night... well, we were hoping for a super saturday in the athletics stadium but it failed to materialise. nick miller did win gold for england in the hammer, but other hopefuls were pushed down the medals. here's our sports correspondent natalie pirks. every sinew strained, every effort made, but gold remains elusive. keely hodgkinson won silver at the world championships and hopes were high in the 800 metres, but when kenya's mary moraa turned the burners on, there was no stopping her. bronze for scotland's laura muir and boogie wonderland for moraa.
9:32 am
10 years ago, keely hodgkinson watched super saturday at london 2012 and decided to focus on running. she now has world silver, 0lympic silver and commonwealth silver. i'm not quite sure i could do anything. it went so quick, i gave it all but came up with silver again. world championship wins don't automatically guarantee commonwealth ones, as jake wightman found out. with all eyes on the world champion, the scot found himself fading in a rapid 1500 metre final and having to settle for bronze. it's going to be - australia, the gold! but for england's nick miller it was hammer time. he gave everyone an early scare with two no throws, but he made up for it to successfully defend his commonwealth title. four years ago, england's zharnel hughes won the 200 metres only to be disqualified during his victory lap. this time he was denied again by trinidad and tobago�*sjereem richards. smiles, though, for this silver lining.
9:33 am
and this is what it is all about. alastair chalmers with an unexpected 400 metres bronze, guernsey's first alastair chalmers with an unexpected 400 metres hurdles bronze, guernsey's first ever athletics commonwealth medal. hugs all round. it's called the friendly games, after all! natalie pirks, bbc news, birmingham. away from the track, there was plenty of success for the home nations including a rather emotional gold forjack hunter—spivey. as matt gravelling reports. 33 golds were won on day nine, but not many meant more than this. crowd erupts after opening up about his struggles with mental health, jack hunter—spivey has now added a commonwealth gold to his paralympic bronze from tokyo. i'm just a normal, working class scouse lad, and i've now got a gold medal in the commonwealth, so it's incredible and i can get see my mum. 0h, love you!
9:34 am
it was an english one, two, three in the men's three metre springboard, with daniel goodfellow taking the win. four years ago, goodfellow partnered tom daley for the commonwealth ten metres synchro title, but this was the dive that helped him claim individual glory. england's hope of a second commonwealth gold in a row in the netball didn't quite go to plan. australia won this semifinal 60—51. england will now play new zealand for the bronze. and it was australia v england in the men's hockey semifinal too, with england again losing out, this time throwing away a two—goal lead. elsewhere, wales got their first rhythmic gymnastic gold. gemma frizelle with a surprise first place in the hoop event. and in boxing, while it was a night of semifinals across the weight classes, there could be quite a party planned in belfast. aidan walsh will today go for gold in the men's light middleweight final, while sister michaela will
9:35 am
battle for the featherweight crown. northern ireland are having their most successful games ever. and while they wait on the boxing, the bowls was in the bag. martin mchugh, northern ireland's joint flagbearer with the winning bowl in the men's fours to beat india. you two weren't even born when these guys were winning the gold medal at the commonwealth games in kuala lumpur. not sure they'll appreciate that on tv, but yeah. unbelievable. speechless. these pair here are legends of the game and it's a pleasure to be a part with two legends and my best mate. in the men's lawn bowls singles, it was bronze for scotland's iain mclean and silver for northern ireland's gary kelly. but it was australian aaron wilson who won the event and with it came arguably the celebration of the games.
9:36 am
matt gravelling, bbc news. away from the games, we're in the middle of the first weekend of the new premier league season. liverpool had to come from behind twice to earn a point at newly—promoted fulham, aleksandar mitrovic with both the home side's goals. darwin nunez came off the bench to score liverpool's first and set up mohamed salah for their second. they never felt the game properly. maybe directly after they equalised, looked like we found a little bit where we want to go. yeah, so, really bad game. really bad game for my side and from us. you know, we got a point for it, so that's the only positive thing. tottenham are the early league leaders, thanks to a 4—1 win over southampton.
9:37 am
eric dier was among the scorers, his first goal in three years. there were wins for celtic and rangers in the scottish premiership. celtic were made to work for their win at ross county, it was heading for a draw when a debut goal from moritzjenz put them ahead 6 minutes from time and they went on to win 3—1. it was a little more comfortable for rangers, they were 2—0 winners at home to kilmarnock, alfredo morelos with their second goal. south africa's ashley buhai leads the women's british open at muirfield going into the final day. she had a storming third round, hitting eight birdies to move to 1a under par. that's five shots
9:38 am
clear of the field. so much more to look forward to in the commonwealth games. we have the men's track cycling, and the road races. 17 home nations, boxers and competitions as well, and england will play the hockey final against australia. that is all for me, know it is time for the papers. hello and welcome to our look at what the the papers are saying today. with me are james rampton, features writer at the independent; and dave wooding, political editor at the sun on sunday.
9:39 am
the sunday express leads with conservative leadership candidate rishi sunak vowing to jail child groomers for life. former labour prime minister gordon brown tells the observer that both tory leadership hopefuls should should agree to hold an emergency budget to help with the cost of living crisis. the sunday telegraph has a picture of the tearful family of archie battersbee, who was taken off life support, and died yesterday. the sunday times says rishi sunak has pledged billions to help ease the cost of living crisis. the sunday mirror reports on a warning from the nspcc that schoolgirls are being groomed on tiktok. the sun continues to discuss the fallout of the �*wagatha christie�* trial. and finally, britain faces an �*eco meltdown�* as the heatwave looms, according to the sunday people. so, let's begin... hello, lovely to see you both, thank you forjoining us on the sunday
9:40 am
morning. a lot of big topics to discuss through the morning, were going to start with the front page of the sunday telegraph, focusing on liz truss versus rishi sunak. the headline they go on is, truss will rush through her tax cuts to cover cost of living crisis. can you kick us off? ., , ., cost of living crisis. can you kick usoff? ., , ., ., , , us off? the only two leadership rivals are both _ us off? the only two leadership rivals are both fighting - us off? the only two leadership rivals are both fighting it - us off? the only two leadership rivals are both fighting it out i us off? the only two leadership l rivals are both fighting it out with barely three weeks to go until the ballot papers must be n. and a new prime minister chosen. about what they will do when they get into number ten. they spoken about all sorts of things, he saw the sunday express talking about the crime, and liz truss talking about other issues, but the big dividing line seems to be about tax. how the two
9:41 am
candidates will help people with the cost of living crisis. the big dividing line on that seems to be, liz truss is saying that she will do it by cutting taxes, and rishi sunak are saying he will do it by targeted financial support, and tax rises will come later. in this op—ed which liz truss has written inside the telegraph, she is saying that she will rush through these tax rises as soon as she gets into number ten, and that will mean a tax cut, reducing the national insurance levy, and suspending green taxes. that will appeal directly to the tory grassroots who have a say on this, 160,000 members of that party. she is also having a bit of a pop shot at rishi sunak by talking about
