the 33rd stage victory of his career. cavendish considered quitting the sport last year after illness, injury and poorform — but now he's just one stage win away from the all—time record, as nick parrott reports. a brief rest bites from the mountains and the chance for mark to shine again. it was a place where he won back in 2010, doing it again was what mattered. stating he energy for the finish and a couple of lapses in concentrations and classes not much you can do about mechanical problems. catching up would cost the italian vital energy. even without
the setback he would have struggled. his team set him up perfectly for the finish and once again he surged to victory his third of the tour. if he can survive tomorrow's claims he will get the chance on thursday to equal the record of 8034 stage wings. he would have to be brave to get another stage when in the store. now, emma raducanu says "the whole experience of wimbledon caught up with her", following her retirement in the last 16 last night... the british teenager was the surprise package this year, but missed out on a place in the women's quarter finals, which have taken place today. well chetan parthek is at wimbledon for us...and it's been a very honest assesment from radacanu today chetan? it's been a very honest assessment and he hasn't it? yes. i think everyone was thrilled to hear from her a few hours ago after what
happened here last night and where she was forced to retire when she walked off. we heard it was breathing difficulties and her medical team advised her not to go back out which is very unusual but we didn't see a return to court and made it through to the quarterfinals and understandably no media conference late last night. there was nothing this morning either but a few hours of she did sit down with sue and said this was the culmination of everything the excitement and the buzz of the occasion and she does not know exactly what happened but she followed that medical advice and decided it was the right thing not to come back out but she is rightly incredibly proud of what she's achieved and what a story she's been for british women's tennis and this is what she's been saying.- is what she's been saying. now, i did not know _ is what she's been saying. now, i did not know what _ is what she's been saying. now, i did not know what caused - is what she's been saying. now, i did not know what caused it. - is what she's been saying. now, i did not know what caused it. i - is what she's been saying. now, i l did not know what caused it. i think that it was a combination of everything that has gone on behind the scenes in the last week and an
accumulation of the excitement and the buzz and i think it's a great learning experience for me going forward and it's a great step forward and it's a great step forward and it's a great step forward and now next time i'll be better prepared and i had the best time of my life. this whole week has been absolutely incredible and had never felt support make it and i'm so grateful for every single person who cheered me on during the matches and out of the messages i received via social media or messages so i would like to thank everyone who got in touch and supported me the last two weeks. she in touch and supported me the last two weeks. ,, in touch and supported me the last two week-— in touch and supported me the last two weeks. ,, ., , ., ~ ., ., two weeks. she was talking about a number of people _ two weeks. she was talking about a number of people getting _ two weeks. she was talking about a number of people getting in - two weeks. she was talking about a number of people getting in touch l number of people getting in touch with her. she said that instagram was at about 2000 followers and she's up to 289,000 at the moment. instagram was freaking her account and she's trying to get back hold of it. showing her support is paid in
return have been showing their support for her. marcus rush prayed meeting this afternoon that something similar happened to him when he was playing for england's under 60 and there is no doubt a new star is born in so many people now her name. here at the moment at limbo than i can see the cover are beginning to come outside courts for some of the doubles action but in centre court number one which had been at full capacity for the first time today so just over 12,000 on court number one 15,000 on centre court. able to enjoy the women's quarterfinals. getting past her into the quarterfinals setting up a shady anti—but the world number one leaning in straight sets and a tough one when you consider how it relates to finished last night but she really did not have the answers losing 6—1 and she will play
angelique next. what a story here and one title between then and the start of this limbo then and she has totally remembered her game especially looking so good on the other side of the draw and a breakthrough championship for her in herfirst quarterfinal in breakthrough championship for her in her first quarterfinal in her first semifinal at a grand slam gleaned for her. 6—4, 6—3. so much history at the championships. but her story ends now and she will play catalina next brushing aside in straight sets. if that's was not exciting enough you have got the names quarterfinal to look forward to tomorrow and both novak djokovic and roger federer in action. another exciting data, at wimbledon tonight. you very much.
england have been forced to name an entirely different squad for their one—day series against pakistan — which gets underway on thursday — after three players and four staff members tested positive for covid—19. the rest of the original squad are all self isolating. and this comes just a few weeks before they're due to face india in a lucrative test series, but england's director of cricket, ashley giles, doesn't believe the ecb has taken risks with the schedule. i don't believe we have gambled at all and we are fully aware of the risks, no one is more than i sent thatis risks, no one is more than i sent that is the knife edge we are working on all the time and this data around looking after our people and keeping them saying as much as anything with protecting the revenues of the whole game and it's a really difficult balance to strike but i think were also hopeful that post 19th ofjuly some things may change and we may have more freedom
but more freedom in the event of a positive case to treat things differently and that's what we are hoping for an i think that is what sports needs going forward. let’s sports needs going forward. let's aet more sports needs going forward. let's get more on _ sports needs going forward. let's get more on this _ sports needs going forward. let's get more on this with _ sports needs going forward. let's get more on this with our - sports needs going forward. let's get more on this with our cricket commentator. thank you for coming on and speaking to us. early on in the pandemic, cricket was known for having such a strict bubble for the players to live in. you were in it as well. you know any better than most. so, what has changed with this latest situation? has the bubble stopped? latest situation? has the bubble stoned? �* , , stopped? absolutely. the summer there is no sense _ stopped? absolutely. the summer there is no sense of _ stopped? absolutely. the summer there is no sense of this _ stopped? absolutely. the summer there is no sense of this strict - there is no sense of this strict bubble they were in last year and that impaired living at the ground and inside the ground and there was no eating whatsoever. and those hotels were privately booked outs, no other publicly staying there so this year yes, the players have still tight restrictions they have not really been allowed to leave the hotel much and they relaxed environment because they had been
struggling mental health wise that the strict environments being separated from families and families have been able to go into the team hotel after being risk assessed. so there has been a different environment and it exposes the players and now we have seen an entire squad at risk.— entire squad at risk. drastic measures — entire squad at risk. drastic measures for _ entire squad at risk. drastic measures for the _ entire squad at risk. drastic measures for the squad - entire squad at risk. drastic measures for the squad to l entire squad at risk. drastic i measures for the squad to be completely changed but the ecb and other nations aren't always going to have the luxury of completely overhauling the squad. how far do you think this can go before see reason is in coming jeopardy. it’s a reason is in coming 'eopardy. it's a serious business reason is in coming jeopardy. it's a serious business and _ reason is in coming jeopardy. it's a serious business and yes _ reason is in coming jeopardy. it�*s —. serious business and yes the fact that england are the home team have been able to bring in a whole new squad and that has got to be the first issue to address is to avoid a situation where if one or two positive cases come in and it wipes out the entire squad but it's imperative that the pakistan series but then after that test matches and india and in between there is a hundred competition if the rule comes in that double vaccinated individuals will not have to self—isolate. that will be key to
help sports and many other people and all sorts of walks of life and society to move forward with the health secretary suggests that would be after the group stage of the hundred test matches.- be after the group stage of the hundred test matches. there is one ofthe hundred test matches. there is one of the story — hundred test matches. there is one of the story to _ hundred test matches. there is one of the story to bring _ hundred test matches. there is one of the story to bring you. _ hundred test matches. there is one of the story to bring you. some - of the story to bring you. some breaking news in the last hour. the british tour match against the bulls on saturday has been postponed after four players and one member of the management team returned and organisers say they are looking to reschedule the game or provide another opponent and meanwhile south africa's second test against georgia on friday is also being reviewed after a number of players from both camps returned positive tests. that is all from the bbc sport centre. i feel you at wembley. all of those stories about covid—19 impacting sports. after the last
three weeks of the complicated tournaments. yes there have been a few scares amongst various teams much we are into the home stretch. two semifinalists i can connect with the against spain in the final on sunday and uefa will be very relieved to have gotten this far with all of these matches taking place. the sun is bursting through the crowds here at wembley and the fans are still pouring up for this up fans are still pouring up for this up wembley way for the first of the semifinals and we have some means between 80 and spain kicking off just over an hour away. that is cross pitch side now. thank you so much. welcome back, the atmosphere is building and the off to my right we have just is building and the off to my right we havejust had is building and the off to my right we have just had the team so i can tell you he keeps his place in the italian attack. the big question is who will come in and replace leonardo who has been brilliant about this tournament and suffer the dreadful injury in the last match
against belgium. emerson comes in to replace him at left back with you instead fail. he has been the standout players of the tournaments. he will be a big loss to italy. as for spain, the big means, farrell been dropped as we know. he struggled for goals in the early stages of the tournament and faced a lot of criticism. so he dropped to the bench and it says he does not feel he can rely on him in such a big match as this, the semifinals coming tonight. in the centre of the offence by spain of course he will partner as e—mail coming in. the manchester city defender at the start of this finance and has really helped improve the defence and in the outset as e—mail coming for such a long time for spain. it will be a fascinating contest. he does not get much bigger than the semifinals here of the european championship match with england and denmark to come
tomorrow. it a stand against energy tonight. it will be one game. i can tell you that. john watson down there pitch side at enmity against spain. they led by a course but it's all system because for the final week, but semifinals here at and then the final lever it may be on sunday. you can watch tonight match on bbc one and listen on radio five live across the bbc as that. we will have to build up throughout the day from bbc breakfast to kick—off at eight o'clock tomorrow evening for england against denmark and in 1992 champions england is looking and i are the favourites to become the champions here for the first time. good night for now.
well, it certainly feels like summer is on hold. further showers expected through the rest of today and into tomorrow and the reason for it is this low pressure, which swept across the country earlier on today. it brought some really quite heavy rain and some strong winds to southern areas. in the second half of the day, the more persistent rain is around eastern scotland and the north—east of england. elsewhere, it is a mixture of areas of cloud and the showers come and go as well. that will continue into the evening hours and overnight. it is not going to be a cold night, temperatures in the south around 13 or 14 degrees, not far off that in scotland as well. so, tomorrow, we will call it a day of sunny spells and showers. some of the showers could be heavy almost anywhere. there could be some cracks of thunder, but i think most of the time, most of the day, the weather should be dry. more sunshine tomorrow, so feeling a little bit warmer too.
