7:48 pm
at wembley on wednesday. our reporter olly foster is with them at st george's park. the players only arrive back here at their training camp at five o'clock in the morning so it was always going to be a day of rest and recovery and we saw some of them having a walkabout in the grounds here and they dodged a lightning storm that dodged fry for about an hour or so here at st george's park and what they will be doing for the next few days as a full training session tomorrow, another on tuesday before they head down to london on the eve of that semifinal against denmark on wednesday. they will be analysing the opposition, what about the danes? they played them twice backin the danes? they played them twice back in the autumn in the nations and the heat and there was a goalless draw and they also lost england one nail and christian eriksen won his 100th cap in that game and scored the winner and of course what the danes are doing here is motivated by that terrible incident, the trauma in their first match of when christian eriksen collapsed on the pitch. they are
7:49 pm
going out and playing every single match for him. that is what is motivating them. the england players were deeply affected by that as well. gareth southgate cancelled one of his news conference as they waited to hear positive news. he recovered at home, which is fantastic news, but obviously this meeting england are going to have to put all that emotion to one side. they are obviously riding a wave of emotion after what happened with christian as well and that is understandable so it is going to be a fantastic game to be a part of. we have got more experience as a group of those sorts of games and individually the players have got experience of those games, which is definitely helpful, but we have got to do that now on wednesday night. i am conscious it is notjust our country that has been through so much difficulty, but we have also had a lot of division for a little while and i know that these england nights and nights that bring

everybody together. communities, families, and so to give them so much enjoyment over the last two matches in particular i think the ones before as well and to have them with hope looking forward now is part of the privilege of being on thejob, really. it part of the privilege of being on the job. really-— part of the privilege of being on the job, really. it promises to be a ve , the job, really. it promises to be a very. very — the job, really. it promises to be a very. very special _ the job, really. it promises to be a very, very special evening - the job, really. it promises to be a very, very special evening on - very, very special evening on wednesday. of course, by then they will know who is waiting for me in the final. the first of the semifinals between italy and spain is on tuesday but everything geared now for england towards the game against the danes on wednesday and you know that they are just coming to the boil, england, just the right time after looking fairly pedestrian through the group stages, a little bit lacklustre, dare i say, in the last 16 match against the germans before exploding into life in the last 15 minutes but now you feel have lift off after that performance against ukraine. theyjust need to take that with them to wembley, get

it right once again and then there into the final. there are huge favourites against the danes and they are also huge favourites to become european champions. staying with football. in the premier league, crystal palace have appointed former arsenal legend patrick vieira as their new manager. vieira replaces roy hodgeson, who stepped down at the end of last season. the world cup winner has signed a three—year contract at crystal palace and said he was excited to return to the premier league and hoped to drive the club forward. the former arsenal midfielder won three premier league titles and four f.a. cups at his old club. rain forced the england's match to be abandoned at bristol in their third one day international against sri lanka, denying them the chance to reply to the visitors 166 all out. england won the toss and put sri lanka in to bat, but a poor display saw them lose four wickets in the first ten overs. tom curran almost managed to match his brother sam's five wicket haul in the second odi, taking four wickets off 35 balls.
7:52 pm
sri lanka's performance was summed up in the final wicket. a lack of communication saw both batsmen at the same end to finish their series with an incredible run out. before england could even get their innings started, the heavens openend and the match was abandoned. let's turn to tennis now, where wimbledon is preparing for manic monday, where it'll be busier than expected after the all england club announced there will be 100 per cent capacity at the tournament next week. centre court will host almost 15,000 and court one will hold more than 12,300 for the quarter—finals, semi—finals and finals. it's part of the government's events research programme and it'll be the first time outdoor sporting stadiums will be full in the uk since the pandemic began. 18—year—old emma radacanu will headline monday's fourth round action on the show courts

as she takes on australia's ajla tomljanovic on court one. she is the youngest british woman to reach the wimbledon last 16 in the open era. it's been another unpredictable day at the tour de france. the 25—year—old australian ben o'connor put in an extraordinary performance to win stage 9 and move up to second place overall. but tadej pogacar is two minutes clear of o'connor in the yellow jersey, and more than five ahead of anybody else. drew savage reports. it has been the face of constant surprises so far but would there be any more? well, yes. it's rare for anyone near the race lead to make it into a breakaway but ben o'connor managed it. although as he started the day 1ath, over eight minutes behind pogacar, maybe the defending champion could afford to relax just a little bit. o'connor was having the ride of his life.
7:54 pm
the young australian has won a stage at the giro d'italia before, but now in the alps he was heading for a really big win. the yellow jersey group had to respond, which included geraint thomas — looking stronger after losing 35 minutes yesterday. he led the counterattack to help ineos team—mate richard carapaz. but o'connor still had time in hand to win the stage handsomely and move up to second overall. but pogacar is still two minutes and a second ahead of him in the standings, and he rode away from the rest of his rivals including carapaz. no—one else, now, within five minutes of him. drew savage, bbc news. to rugby union now and there was a crowd of 10,000 at twickenham to watch england beat the usa 43-29. with the lions tour leaving eddiejones with a shortage of familiarfaces, he brought several uncapped players into the side, as craig templeton reports. with many players away on lions duty, it was time for some new england stars to earn their stripes. out of the eight uncapped starters,
7:55 pm
the most excitement was around marcus smith. his kick was kept in brilliantly by max malin is in sam underhill did the rest. it was the usa's first match since the world cup. joe took advantage of any rustiness and scored two tries. now, can you spotjoin me looking on the right? rubin didn't! a try at less than a minute into his england debut. one american that was paying attention was cam dolan. join me randall caught on in the usa had some glory. randall, though, would have the last laugh. he missed the six nations with an ankle injury but i think it is safe to say he has recovered. in the end it was comfortable for england but with a total of 11 tries it wasn't a bad way to spend independence day. bbc news. british athletes have been warming up for the olympics at the diamond league in stockholm. cj ujah will be flying

the flag for team gb at the 100 metres in tokyo. today he came third in sweden. the race was won by ronnie baker of the united states, with lamont marcelljacobs of italy finishing second. that's all from sportsday. thanks very much for watching. goodbye. good evening. between the showers we had a little sunshine through the day but evening and overnight showers are going to be on the cards throughout this evening and overnight and into tomorrow with this area of low pressure driving our weather and this are of low pressure developing rapidly to the south could bring some unseasonably windy weather through monday night.
7:57 pm
but for what remains of this evening there'll be further thundery downpours around. i think the thunder will ease a little as we go through the night but it will stay unsettled, further outbreaks of showery rain for scotland, northern england, northern ireland. fewer showers further south but a mild night for most and low cloud coming onto the north—east coast of scotland and tomorrow it looks as if the northern half of the country will have the thickest cloud, the showery outbreaks of rain. further south it looks drier and sunnier than today. not ruling out the odd shower — can't be ruled out anywhere — but there will be some heavy ones further north, eventually starting to ease a little across northern england, perhaps later to northern ireland. ahead of this gathering massive rain. so in between i think it'll feel warmer than it has felt today just because we have got some sunshine and strong sunshine coming through and as a result of high levels of pollen at this time at this time of year, grass pollen, and some high levels of uv as well. as we go through the week ahead at wimbledon that means there's the chance of some interruptions but monday looking a little bit drier, tuesday concerning us and wednesday and wednesday and thursday,
7:58 pm
i wouldn't like to rule out some showers, but they will tend to diminish in frequency and intensity but as we go through monday evening and overnight this area of rain that is in force, but it weighed north across much of england and wales but we will see some impacts potentially from gale—force winds through the channel, unseasonably windy weather through the time of year affecting many parts of the southern half of england, southern half of england, so the north of wales, in fact, eastern england as well for scotland and northern ireland as you can see impacts potentially from gale—force winds through the channel, unseasonably windy weather through the time of year affecting many parts of the southern half of england, so the north of wales, in fact, eastern england as well for scotland and northern ireland as you can seem evening to tuesday will stay showery, some heavy tuesday. still quite warm, 18 to 19 about average for the time of year but that is going to trigger some heavy showers as well. they showers are still around on wednesday, diminishing in number on thursday and friday but some
