there's all the difficulties of fighting over the tory party, as well, and she did well to win that election by 323 votes, so it was very clearly close. so to come out and face all that and come out as the winner, i think it is a great day for the labour party and her. the other interesting thing i suppose is, asjoe was saying, complicated contest there, the tories finish second by only 300 votes, george galloway came in third, some people forget he was a giant killer, the man who ended roy jenkins's long parliamentary career. for a newbie politician like kim, that's quite an environment of cut your political teeth in. absolutely, she did do incredibly _ your political teeth in. absolutely, she did do incredibly well, - your political teeth in. absolutely, she did do incredibly well, it - your political teeth in. absolutely, she did do incredibly well, it was l your political teeth in. absolutely, l she did do incredibly well, it was a very close — she did do incredibly well, it was a very close to victory, only three to but what _ very close to victory, only three to but what i — very close to victory, only three to but what i like about this story in the yorkshire post as i think it

10:50 pm
through sets of three and four, evan struggled to find his best game and he knew it, and he couldn't hide it. he needed a target. poor coach. korda's sisters are elite golfers, his parents were professional tennis players — "genes" can come true. evans was out, but the hill was still at full capacity. i mean, who's going to move when it's you—know—who? andy murray will never lack commitment or bravery, that is him. that isn't always enough, not against an inspired opponent. they gave it everything in the seats. denis shapovalov off was courageous on court. the canadian's aged 22, seeded ten. it showed. the roof was closed, it has helped before. not this time, 6—2 in the third, straight sets, murray. but he is shapovalov�*s hero, the canadian told him at the net
10:51 pm
and perhaps we should remember the two matches murray won this week and be grateful he was here at all. joe wilson, bbc news, wimbledon. tunisian ons jabeur has reached the fourth round in stunning fashion, coming from a set down to beat garbine muguruza on centre court. she beat the two—time grand slam winner5—7, 6—3, 6—2. it's the first time she's reached this stage of the competition. i'm very happy. and honestly, this is the first time i've been on centre, and it's amazing energy. think you guys, thank you. cheering. you'll make the _ think you guys, thank you. cheering. you'll make the energy _ think you guys, thank you. cheering. you'll make the energy is _ think you guys, thank you. cheering. you'll make the energy is amazing, . you'll make the energy is amazing, and i played on the fourth centre court before. but i want here. i’m court before. but i want here. i'm so, so, court before. but i want here. i'm so. so. so — court before. but i want here. i�*m so, so, so happy. italy are just one match away from reaching their first european championship final since 2012. they beat the world number one ranked side belgium 2—1 in munich — nicolo barella put italy ahead. and they had a second before half time, a stunning strike
10:52 pm
from lorenzo insigne. belgium were given an immediate lifeline, jeremy doku brought down, and romelu lukaku scored the penalty. belgium couldn't find an equaliser, though — italy into the final four. italy will play spain next after they reached the semi finals in dramatic style. they beat switzerland, but only just. an own goal from denis zakaria putting spain in front. switzerland were level before half time, liverpool's xherdan shaqiri making iti—i. switzerland then had a man sent off, but managed to take it to penalties — only for spain to win it 3—i, mikel 0yarzabal with the winning spotkick. england have arrived in rome ahead of their quarterfinal against ukraine tomorrow evening. the squad trained this morning at st george's park before flying to italy. it's the first match england have played away from wembley in the tournament, having won three of their four matches without conceding a goal. manager gareth southgate says
10:53 pm
it's good to be away. it's not been too difficult, really, to refocus people. the opportunity is there, the confidence is there, and the belief. and i think they are looking forward to the challenge. i actually think it's good to come away from wimbley now. it would've been hard to replicate the atmosphere we had the other day three days later. and i think to have a different focus, different surroundings, different challenge is good for us. we're going to every game respecting our opposition, but we have to focus on ourselves — our opposition, but we have to focus on ourselves mainly, ourselves and our performance at regional level, we are _ our performance at regional level, we are more than capable of winning a football— we are more than capable of winning a football match. that's the main focus, _ a football match. that's the main focus, if — a football match. that's the main focus, if we — a football match. that's the main focus, if we focus on ourselves and make _ focus, if we focus on ourselves and make sure — focus, if we focus on ourselves and make sure the mentality is right, and we _ make sure the mentality is right, and we make sure the performance is i’ilht and we make sure the performance is right we _ and we make sure the performance is right we give ourselves a great opportunity of going through the semifinal. just three days after england put germany out of the competition, toni kroos has announced his retirement from the
10:54 pm
international game. the 31—year—old said he had taken the decision before the euros and that he wanted to focus on his club football with real madrid. kroos scored 17 goals in 106 appearances for germany, and helped them win the 2014 world cup. norwich city have signed scotland midfielder billy gilmour on a season—long loan from chelsea. the 20—year—old was man of the match on his full debut in the goalless draw against england at euro 2020. gilmour made just 11 appearances for chelsea last season, starting only three league games. derby county will play in the championship next season, after the english football league decided not to appeal against a decision to just fine the club for their accounting policies. derby were told to pay £100,000 but won't now face a points deduction, which would have relegated them. chelsea women's manager, emma hayes, has signed a new contract with the club. following her success with the women's side, wining the league and getting to the champions league final, there was speculation that she might be tempted to go elsewhere. however, hayes has committed to chelsea, saying... "i really look forward to building on the successes we've already achieved and i'm delighted to have extended further." now, a dislocated shoulder
10:55 pm
would rule many of us out of work — especially if that was work was for the british and irish lions. however, that might not be the case for alun wyn jones. the welshman, who had been named lions captain, looked set to miss the tour after suffering the injury last saturday. however, he now has his sights set on what's being described as a "miracle recovery" and could make a return! the lions play theirfirst warm up match of the tour tomorrow. obviously it's a big blow, no doubt. he's a player, and obviously where very close. he's a class act in everything he does. if we can get them back in anyway shape or form, that be awesome. i'm not sure about that, to be honest, but again, you know, if someone of that calibre becomes available again and he's able to represent us, yeah, it's a no—brainer, i would say. slovenia's matej mohoric has won stage seven of the tour de france, while mattyew van der pole retained the overall lead. at 154 miles, it was the longest
10:56 pm
stage for 21 years. britain's mark cavendish claimed more sprinting points to stay in the greenjersey. mohoric won by more than a minute to claim his first tour win. britain's geraint thomas finished in the main group, slipping a place to 13th overall. mercedes will be hoping they've done enough to close the gap to red bull for this weekend's austrian grand prix. world champion lewis hamilton topped the time sheets in second practice ahead of his team—mate valtteri bottas. the briton was more than two—tenths of a second quicker than championship leader max verstappen, who won last weekend's race at the red bull ring. holly smith has become the first woman for 45 years to be included in the great britain showjumping team for the olympic games. smith is named alongside harry charles as travelling reserve, while london 2012 gold medallists scott brash and ben maher are in the squad. and that's all the support from us for now. we will see you soon. we've got some big showers in the forecast for saturday, so be prepared.
10:57 pm
the skies could turn dark almost at any time, thunder and lightning is possible too, and even the possibility of flash flooding in some areas. so this is what it looks like early on saturday morning — warm and muggy in the south, 16 celsius, a little bit fresher further north. we'll see one band of rain moving northwards through the morning, already giving quite a lot of rain in an initial space of time, but then come the afternoon, we'll see very heavy showers developing across the west country, the midlands, east anglia, the london area possibly, too. we could see, in the extreme case, up to 80mm of rain. now, that's a lot of rainfall in a relatively short space of time, so hence the possibility of flash flooding. temperatures will be typically around the low—20s further south, high teens in the north, and the showers and thunderstorms will probably linger at least in some areas into the evening hours as well. take care.
