by, every time they can sleep and get three meals and get some treatment, we will see an improvement. fortunately at the moment we cannot make the decision. the last time the two roberto smit, the 2013 fa cup final. martinez was depicted that day, only one can return to wimbley for the semis. no doubt that is the tougher side of the drop. italy still in there belgium and spain as well. gareth southgate and his players all too aware that if they can come past ukraine here tomorrow it will be denmark or the czech republic they would face. that route to the final really is opening up for gareth southgate and his squad. it seems that he has got everyone of those big decisions right so far in this tournament and he will hope that that theme continues tomorrow. that is just about it from myself here at rome. let's go back to gavin

in the studio and software and the rest of the day sport. thanksjohn. well after stunning the cycling world with two stage wins so far, on his comeback to the tour de france, the longest stage today was always going to be struggle for sprinter mark cavendish. mathieu van der poel still leads the way, with the yellowjersey — as nick parrot reports. there are many races within the tour de france. mark cavendish is to win the sprinters green jersey. on the longer stage for 21 years come he wrote at the front until he secured vital points at the intermediate spring. job done come hejust had to make it to be finished. while he slipped back, i met a moorish surge forward. the slovenian likes to write hard for a long, and the 151i write hard for a long, and the 154 miles were to his liking. it meant so much to him to win this stage, to add to his victories in the other two grand tours. his countrymen were suffering though. last year's runner—up one of the favourites, but could not keep up, slipping down the
6:53 pm
standings. defending champion stuck to his rivals such as britain's garrett thomas but they and the rest of the palatine lifetime to vanderpool who will spend another day in the yellowjersey. —— lost time too. keeping it will be tough tomorrow. us sprinter sha'carri richardson is set to miss the tokyo olympics — after testing positive positive for marijuana. richardson received a one month ban — and said she used the drug as a way of coping with the death of her mother. richardson won the 100m at the us olympic trials in oregon last month — and earlier this year ran the sixth—fastest time in history. but positive test means her qualification result has been wiped. earlier i spoke to journalist andre lowe, who helped break the story — he told me why she has to be punished. it isa it is a big mistake, and you want to empathise, it is never easy to lose a loved one and that is the expression she gave today. that's the explanation. in admitting that she didn'tjust marijuana during the
6:54 pm
us trial. she is a professional athlete and of course as she said, she is aware of what she can do and what she cannot do. —— that she admitted to using. i'm afraid smoking marijuana is one of those things that you cannot do as we all knew cup you cannot miss days. it is on the list of prohibited. it does contain other performance—enhancing properties. it really is a big mistake for her. luckily she is still young. she should return to the mix but you never know in sports. a massive loss for her. when ou think sports. a massive loss for her. when you think richer— sports. a massive loss for her. when you think richer cigar— sports. a massive loss for her. when you think richer cigar from _ sports. a massive loss for her. when you think richer cigar from here - you think richer cigar from here now? what is next her? how does she rebuild and bounce back? —— where do you think richardson goes from here now? ., ., , you think richardson goes from here now? ., ~' , ., you think richardson goes from here now? . ~ , ., , you think richardson goes from here now? ., ,, , ., , ., now? thankfully for her, it is not as somewhat _ now? thankfully for her, it is not as somewhat term _ now? thankfully for her, it is not as somewhat term a _ now? thankfully for her, it is not

as somewhat term a major- now? thankfully for her, it is not as somewhat term a major drug, now? thankfully for her, it is not i as somewhat term a major drug, so she does have the opportunity to return to tracking a few months. and get back on the circuit. and confirm the times that she has shown an performance that she has shown over the season so far. an update from the first of tonight's quarter finals — switzerland v spain in st petersburg. denis zakaria own goal, early in the first half. it is not to extra time. in the swiss go all the way? we shall style c. swiss go all the way? we shall style c_ __ swiss go all the way? we shall style c. -- it swiss go all the way? we shall style c. —— it is now in extra time. let's go back to wimbledon and join chetan i centre court where we are expecting andy murray to come out any moment. in fact, andy murray has just made his way out onto centre court. he will get going against dennis. it is buzzing at the moment as they await that match. i have to say, the atmosphere in the mood has dropped a little bit because since
6:56 pm
you have been away, the british number one dan evans has gone out the championship. round three again, he hasn't made a past the stage before. going no further this time around either. he was beaten by sebastian korda in four sets. korda was practising for novak djokovic. that feels a bit ominous. that is how it played out. annabelle kroft talked about his heritage, the family dynasty. his older sisters are both professional golfers. he reached the quarters and has pulled off a surprise result. dan evans had a good year. he won his first atp title. he looked good in the first round. but dan evans is wimbledon from his stop is here. he is out in the hopes tonight at least rest on andy murray against dennis. i should
6:57 pm
say wins today in the men's for a, in straight sets, andy women's draw, they went through a straight sets, so and karolina pliskova. in the men's ? cameron norrie beat stefan ice and his brother. —— in the men's doubles. we have got february, nori tomorrow, looking forward to that, emma as well but also it was all about andy murray tonight against dennis. —— we have roger federer and cameron norrie tomorrow. it will be whole different test for murray tonight. compared to the two matches he's had so far. it will have to bring his game, bring hits variety but there are few better problem solvers and tennis the andy married.
6:58 pm
metal helped or not. on that centre court, with the home crowd, he wouldn't put it past him to make it through to around four tonight. but dennis will relish this as well. he will have the whole of wimbledon and most of the british fans going for him this evening. he can stay updated on bbc news but for me and the team, that is all for now. good night. hello again. a warmer day on friday with a bit more of thatjuly send signed to go around. what a fine place to spend that time on the white sand beaches. a glorious picture. when the two storms around however heading into the weekend, though storms will become much more intense and much more widespread. it could cause problems. overnight, showers and thunderstorms clearing

away from northern england and scotland, further south a benefit that every rain edging its way in and it will turn quite muggy, missed and it will turn quite muggy, missed an fog patch is around across the hills and coast of england and wales, tomorrow this first man of that every rain pushes northwards, thunderstorms follow, they could bring 30 mm of rain in the space of an hourand bring 30 mm of rain in the space of an hour and cause localised surface water flooding. an hour and cause localised surface waterflooding. but an hour and cause localised surface water flooding. but the way the winds are, that will tend to lock this line of london storms in place across southwest england and we could see something like a0 and when the two areas. and that could cause flooding issues.
