10:11 pm
things are progressing in the extra time and it is now, just trying to read the clock, extra time you got left, eight, nine minutes and with a half minutes, where is 45 into the first half of extra time this coming up first half of extra time this coming up to nine minutes of extra time. coming on for i'm not sure if he's gone off butjack coming on for i'm not sure if he's gone off but jack was coming on for i'm not sure if he's gone off butjack was in poor condition in the semifinal in the final stages and bringing a player on the sleeve in the game is an opportunity for some fresh energy on the pitch which can make all of the difference in the next six minutes and in the first half, a short pause in the plane another 50 minutes after that and no tickets to around 20 to uk time, british summertime at
10:12 pm
the moment and that will be the time with which we are expecting this to be 20 to midnight and central european time. in west european time in rome. and going to that picture in rome. and going to that picture in rome, that's look onto some other news in brief so far today. here, the government says people will still be "expected" to wear masks in many indoor spaces — and on public transport — after covid restrictions in england are lifted. the prime minister is due to confirm tomorrow whether most of the rules will end on the 19th ofjuly — including the legal requirement to wear masks. here's our health correspondent, jim reed.
10:13 pm
it's one of the most visible signs of the pandemic. injust over the week, the legal requirement to wear a mask in england is set to end. speaking earlier, though, the vaccines minister said there would still be an expectation to mask up in some cases. the guidelines will be very clear on things like mask—wearing. there's an expectation of people to wear masks indoors, in crowded places, on public transport. so rather than governed by diktat, what we're saying is we move to step four cautiously. in wales, scotland and northern ireland, wearing a mask will still be law for the time being. in england, laboursaid making the rule voluntary would be a mistake. we think more could be done to make sure that public spaces are properly ventilated. and as we've said all the way through this crisis, people who do need to go home
10:14 pm
to self—isolate need, if they're on low incomes, to be financially supported to do that. we think more could be done to make sure that public spaces are properly ventilated. and as we've said all the way through this crisis, people who do need to go home to self—isolate need, if they're on low incomes, to be financially supported to do that. it comes as infections are rising across much of the country. more people are mixing, and there are signs the football has led to a spike among young men. though in scotland, that trend has started to reverse. do you have a registration card? across the uk, ministers have said 100,000 a day could soon be testing positive. vaccines will keep the vast majority out of hospital, but some are warning there could still be disruption to the nhs. so the actual numbers in hospital would still be well below the second wave peak, even if we did hit that 100,000 a day. but, of course, it's very disruptive having covid cases and there would, of course, be a lot of bad outcomes. but i guess the judgment is that it's better that we do it now than in the winter. tomorrow, borisjohnson will confirm plans to lift most of those last restrictions in england. but the message will be one of caution rather than celebration as ministers try to navigate out of this pandemic. jim reed, bbc news. sir richard branson hasjust

returned from the edge of space, during virgin galactic�*s first fully crewed flight. take—off from new mexico was slightly delayed by bad weather but the flight is being seen as a milestone for the commencial space industry. sir richard said it was the experience of a lifetime. from spaceport america in new mexico, here's sophie long. preparations were made before take—off... about ten years, and an hour and a half behind schedule, in one of the most desolate areas of north america, a lifelong dream became reality. sir richard branson, along with two pilots and three other virgin galactic employees, were transported to the spaceship unity tethered to the mothership eve. then take—off. this is the moment he's been waiting for. after more than 16 years, and hundreds of millions of pounds, sir richard branson is now on his way to space. that's so cool. so you can see the moment when they release right there... forjust under four minutes, they experienced weightlessness and enjoyed a view of planet earth that only astronauts can dream of.

well, i've done some ridiculous things in my lifetime. that was really, really, really ridiculous. but ijust can't wait for... ..one day to be able to experience this. it's the experience of a lifetime. and touchdown. safely back on earth after a 90—minute flight. critics call this a billionaire'sjoyride, harmful to the planet sir richard says he wants to protect. for the people here at the first purpose—built commercial spaceport on the planet, this passenger flight marks an historic moment in the long and continuing journey towards space tourism becoming a reality. sophie long, bbc news, spaceport america, new mexico. this is bbc news. the headlines: the battle to be crowned champions of europe goes to extra time, as england and italy finish the 90
10:17 pm
minutes with one goal apiece. england went one up against italy in under three minutes thanks to a bit of magic from luke shaw. but italy hit back in the second half to level up the scores, with leonardo bonucci putting them back in contention. the final of the euros 2020 is going to extra time. defence busier than they ever were in the tens second half which —— tense. they've added a minute for injuries, delays during the course
10:18 pm
of the 15 minutes. it is to be coming to an end very shortly and it remains i—i. lots of anxious faces in rome this evening as fans watch their team it kind of transformational shift in the mood after that second goal. up until that point, looked pretty much like england's match for the taking. but italy have regained quite a bit of momentum and despite the fact that the team is about a decade older than the english players, they're showing the lack of energy. back to the match now and the scene in wembley stadium as we are in the final moments of that extra half, free kick for england coming up. needs a better delivery from luke shaw. on the edge of our seats. the raid to get up if necessary.
10:19 pm
he has floated that one and it's going straightaway for a bit of england pushing at the italian defenders, there will be a free ticket for italy and i would do it for the end of the first half of extra time and so, no difference in score. ., , ., , ., , score. for staff extra time is ended with the score _ score. for staff extra time is ended with the score still _ score. for staff extra time is ended with the score still 1-1 _ score. for staff extra time is ended with the score still 1-1 and - score. for staff extra time is ended with the score still 1-1 and we - score. for staff extra time is ended with the score still 1-1 and we are l with the score still 1—1 and we are into a retrenchment for both sides now and the residual fear and goodness me, it has been the night first the manager and it could be leading to penalties and very painful personal histories and a famous listed at a critical moment, i would not reveal the details of the particular subject, we would not
10:20 pm
want to curse these few moments of the match. it could shift quite a lot the evenings proceedings at wembley. we've had the fee for president, he has landed and got to the stadium with plenty of time to watch the match and how he is coping with the lack of sleep is beyond me because he was up watching the game in rio and left rio in the early hours of the morning and spent the time in real, got on a plane to london, arrived in wembley and despite the fact that it is a red zone coming into this country, covid—i9 restrictions. but they've been exempted from that and they are having to go testing and that is been something of a controversy in this country and many are complaining about the risks of bringing large numbers of people here. even though they've had various tests at risk because the
10:21 pm
delta variant is so prolific and nonetheless, we are where we are, the officials are here, the journalists are here in the fence are here and everyone is celebrating but hopefully what they're celebrating is a great night of football in one of the rare occasions in the last months were people have been able to be together again for a major sporting event and marcus rushford embracing fans from the touchline after the end, he is getting his england shirt on. are the up and no wonder they need to change of shirt, imagine what the sweaty 90 minutes to suspend, pretty sweaty 90 minutes to suspend, pretty sweaty one for the as well. it is a c that you have to say it is a very good nature in the stadium tonight. yes, there've been some booze, but it's been pretty respectful on the whole and this is what gareth southgate wanted to set for the standard. he was talking with the
10:22 pm
blowing of the italian national anthem when he was on five wayjust morning he said look, sometimes when you're brewing at them, you're giving a boost to the other side, you give them a bit of encouragement, they determined to see wrong and that was a clever and subtle way by gareth southgate to say defence, do not criticise them, don't do it. it's not smart and might actually be counterproductive. tonight, the game got off with a very good mood and the spirit on the whole it's been in a few scrappy encounters between the teams, the two sides have been treated much in the spirit of which would have been at the highest level. we will return to the match a little later, we have 15 minutes of extra time and if you penalties, for now, bring some other news around the world and parts of the united states are brace for more
10:23 pm
record—breaking temperatures after having endured the hardestjune on records. it remained dangerously hot and even more wildfires. charlotte wright reports. in the western united states, the heat is relentless. on friday, death valley in california reached 54.4 degrees celsius, believed to be the highest temperature ever reliably recorded on earth. now more warnings that much of california and nevada will be dangerously hot in the coming days. we definitely took the time to take extra precautions. we brought a cooler full of water, and we are making sure everyone stays hydrated. it is the hottest place on earth. this is hot. it's never been hotter. with the extreme heat come wild fires. firefighters in the region say the air is so dry that much of the water dropped by aircraft to quell the flames evaporates before it reaches the ground. as soon as you get these hot temperatures and these extreme drought conditions, that leads to the explosive growth on these wildfires,
10:24 pm
so not only are we dealing with these temperatures that are breaking records, affecting more than 30 million people, now, as those wildfires grow, in the coming days we are going to have to watch the air quality impacts in the region. in northern california, nearly 200 square miles of forest have been closed, and homes have been evacuated close to the nevada border, while in idaho the governor has declared a wild fire emergency and mobilised the state's national guard. because of our drought that we just came out of this winter, our fuels, the trees, the shrubs, they are very, very dry, and so as we extend through the summer, we can expect larger fires. the high temperatures are expected to continue well into next week. charlotte wright, bbc news.
10:25 pm
onto wimbledon — and it's been a centre court thriller for the final of the men's singles. winning his sixth wimbledon final, novak djokovic has equalled roger federer and rafael nadal�*s 20 grand slam titles. the italian matteo berrettini took the serb to four sets, but as joe wilson reports from the all england club, the world number one was just too strong. at wimbledon, there are always people we miss. strong look. but now, a first opportunity for matteo berrettini. against him, novak djokovic, the ultimate immovable opponent. but when berrettini raised his game, we heard. oh, it's in! london supporting italy, hours before wembley. 71 minute first set settled in a flash. wow! that is a bullet! well, if djokovic was shocked, a bit, he reacted. took the second set 6—4 and let's be clear, he is respected globally as a true sporting great. but djokovic wanted to feel the love
10:26 pm
on centre, "let's hear you", he gestured and then, "read the score". and as berrettini faulted, it was 6—4, it was 2—1. passed three hours went the final. louder grew the noise. "matteo" chanted many. djokovic chased everything. who's winning this point? the world number one. and the break of serve followed. it should be a gripping rally on championship point. it should be a challenge to achieve something momentous. it was. grand slam title number 20. the last ten years has been an incredible journey... ..that is not stopping here. with this, djokovic is now level with federer and nadal and surely they will have been watching.
10:27 pm
at wembley stadium, before we give you more on that, let us take a look at the weather prospects. hello there. it looks like we're going to see something much more like summer as we head further into the new week. major change in the weather pattern. much of the summer has been wet because we've had low pressure close by, as we've got now, bringing the rain. and that's because the jet stream has been to the south of the uk. hop the other side of the atlantic, run things on a bit, we've got much more amplification of the jet, which means we're going to find a strengthening jet running to the north of the uk. that will allow high pressure to slowly but surely build up from the south—west and settle things down. things are not settled at the moment, though. we've got rain developing and pushing its way eastwards across england and wales. northwards, too. so, turning wetter here, some heavy bursts of rain. does turned drier across scotland, the thundery downpours easing away, and it should be largely dry overnight in northern ireland.
10:28 pm
so, a touch cooler here. warm night where we have the cloud and rain, though, across england and wales. still some heavy bursts of rain in the morning. the rain is moving very slowly northwards. it may ease off for a while, but as some sunshine comes out in places, it will trigger some thundery downpours — scotland, but also in particular towards the south east of england and east anglia. threat of some localised flooding by the end of the day. not going to be as wet for northern ireland, wales and perhaps the south west, and it should be a little bit warmer than it was today. low pressure, then, is with us for the start of the week, hence that flooding rain in places. the low transfers out into continental europe. most of the thundery downpours are away the other side of the channel, but the low is close enough by to bring the threat of some heavy showers towards the south east. but generally we've got fewer, lightershowers. it's turning drier from west. a bit more sunshine coming through, so temperatures will be a degree or two higher on tuesday. and it continues to dry out during wednesday as that rain pushes away.
10:29 pm
yes, we're going to find a weak weather front arriving in the north west bringing more cloud, but otherwise it's dry and there should be some decent spells of sunshine. as a result, those temperatures up to 24, maybe even 25 degrees. now, it's not going to get hotjust yet. we've got the high pressure building in towards the uk, but this is where the air is coming from. it's more of a northerly breeze, but certainly an improvement as the week goes on. we're starting wet with some flooding rains in places. from midweek onwards, though, it looks much drier with some sunshine. it looks like summer is coming home at last.

10:35 pm
or the other. as far as i can see, we are at about ten minutes left, about eight minutes left. i have completely overestimated that. it is just about two minutes left, and thus any injury time is added to this extra time. marcus rashford is being substituted, they are really throwing everything at this last couple of minutes. we saw a rashford putting his shirt on just a few minutes ago on the sidelines. on the touchline. let's cross to trafalgar square, nese the scene as they anticipate what nobody would want tonight, least of all manager gareth southgate, that this match could be settled and this competition could be settled by penalties. the mood
10:36 pm
must be similar in croydon tonight as well. why? because the great animus sitting on gareth southgate's shoulder is that occasion 25 years ago at the euro semifinal gives germany, when he missed a penalty, he missed a penalty, and that cost them the cost of getting into the final of course, and he has had to live that down the last 45 years. this could've been catharsis for that memory, but we will see whether or not that is the case. we can go to rome and fans there watching the match there. they are as tense as everybody else. i wonder if that man used to smoke and is just taking it up used to smoke and is just taking it up tonight, because it has been one of those matches. been pretty stressful. here we are. marcus rashford running onto the pitch, bit of extra energy, we hope, on his
10:37 pm
arrival. again, that really valuable youth... we are on the view above trafalgar square at the moment. this is one of the fanzones which has been set up, as i say. you can see the big screen there to the top of the big screen there to the top of the picture, and we will doubtless see when the match finally finishes. not yet, because if it does to penalties, the irruption if one side wins, the rage and despair of england fans, thejoy wins, the rage and despair of england fans, the joy of italy fans, or vice versa. who knows? it really is not all over at any means at this stage. there is a bit of competitive football still to be played. it has got three minutes of stoppage time before we have completed. this is a bit stressful for everybody concerned, of course, in the stadium and beyond watching this match. let's talk to our guests this evening, and joining us to review the papers that they have not got any papers to review. at least they
10:38 pm
