this is bbc news 7 these are the latest headlines in the uk and around the world. england's euro dream ends in heartbreak after the team loses to italy in a penalty shootout. agony for england's fans after coming so close to winning a major trophy after so many years. the devastation of getting so close and not being able to give our country what we wanted to is difficult to put into context. celebrations in rome — as italy's footballers are crowned champions of europe for the first time since 1968. borisjohnson joins the football association in condemning racist abuse on social media directed at some of england's black players after their defeat.
10:01 am
i'm annita mcveigh here at wembley. italy may have emerged victorious but england team have many reasons to hold their head up high. i'll be assessing what happened with fans and footballing experts. borisjohnson is expected to announce lifting the remaining coronavirus restrictions in england in one week's time — but people will be urged to wear face masks in crowded places. thousands of people take to the streets to join cuba's biggest anti—government protests for decades, demanding freedom, democracy and more covid vaccines. america's west is scorched by record—breaking heat as california and nevada brace for even higher temperatures.
10:02 am
hello and welcome if you re watching in the uk or around the world. england's bid to end their 55—year wait for a major trophy, in the end, came upjust short. it ended in painfully familiar agony of being on the wrong end of a penalty shoot—out as italy claimed the euro 2020 crown at wembley. the manager, gareth southgate, said the defeat was incredibly painful. the captain, harry kane, said it would probably hurt the players for the rest of their careers but that they should be extremely proud of what they'd achieved. three england players missed their penalties, the final one from 19—year—old bukayo saka, who was heartbroken and had to be consoled by his team—mates and manager. the trio's social media pages have since been flooded with racist comments, leading the fa to release a statement condemning the "disgusting behaviour". and the uk prime minister,
10:03 am
borisjohnson, has said "those responsible for this appalling abuse should be ashamed of themselves." facebook said the removed comments and abuse directed at england's footballers. cheering. it was italy's night. cheering. coming back from england's electric start and then winning it on penalties. cheering. european football's finest honour goes to rome. translation: i'm so happy! we are euro champions! i'm going to celebrate all night! repeats: i'm going to celebrate all night! after sky—high expectations for england, it was heartbreak. after 55 years without a trophy, the wait goes on. and ifeel sorry, in particular, you know, for everyone because, you know, it's a community thing, you know, and everyone was rooting for england.
10:04 am
and in my lifetime, it's probably the closest that i've seen they've come to a championship like that. it was the perfect start for england. left back shaw hitting the back of the italian net afterjust two minutes — the fastest goal in a european championship final. but italian pressure and possession was rewarded with a 67th—minute goalfrom bonucci. no more goals in normal and extra time, just an intruder on the pitch and some extremely intrusive italian tackles on display. penalties would provide both ecstasy and agony. following verratti and kane's goals, belotti denied for italy. england's rashford hit the post. donnarumma denied england's sancho before pickford saved jorginho�*s effort. it all came down to english teenager saka. one kick to keep the game alive for england, but not this time. a cruel ending for the 19—year—old and gareth
10:05 am
southgate�*s team. they're a team who have pulled together, have given the country some incredible evenings. but, of course, tonight, the devastation of getting so close and not being able to give our country the trophy that we wanted to do is difficult to put into context. there is added misery for england's players — who all take the knee before games to highlight the fight against racial inequality — after racist abuse on social media aimed at the three players who missed penalties. condemning it, the football association has said: back on the pitch, a joyous italy is now unbeaten in sa matches.
10:06 am
translation: we are happy for our people, for italians who deserve this after such a difficult period. and this is ourjoy, and the fact that we played really well. plays sombre tune. england, on the other hand, must now pick themselves up with less than 500 days until the world cup. mark lobel, bbc news. let's go to wembley for more reaction. thank you very much. one of those nights that people, whether an italian or england fan will be talking about for a long time into the future, where were you when you watch that game, the final of euro 2020, 60,000 fans packed into wembley station last night because of travel restrictions, the vast

majority of those england fans. as you watched it all crystallise into that penalty shoot out there was agony for sides. let's discuss that now. let's speak to italian football journalist, daniele verri. the last time they won was back in 1968, how big a deal was theirs for the team, for the fans, for the country? the team, for the fans, for the count ? ., . . the team, for the fans, for the count ? ., u, ., ., , country? you can imagine, it has taken us 53 _ country? you can imagine, it has taken us 53 years _ country? you can imagine, it has taken us 53 years without - country? you can imagine, it has taken us 53 years without such . country? you can imagine, it has taken us 53 years without such a | taken us 53 years without such a trophy from the euro point of view it's massive in italy. not only in italy, a very difficult period in the last 18 to 23 months, this is a greatjoy the last 18 to 23 months, this is a great joy for the people,

the last 18 to 23 months, this is a greatjoy for the people, the people following the incredible development of the steam in the last three years. it is definitely massive. the way we got there, we got the trophy in the end, it was impressive. last night's game makes it a run of 34 last night's game makes it a run of 3a games without being beaten, how much has the manager had to do with this success? we have analysed gareth southgate so much, how he has the manager been to what we saw last night? it the manager been to what we saw last ni . ht? ., , the manager been to what we saw last ni . ht? . , ., ., the manager been to what we saw last niuht? ., ., , u ,, night? it was the italian success. the last world _ night? it was the italian success. the last world cup _ night? it was the italian success. the last world cup in _ night? it was the italian success. the last world cup in novemberl night? it was the italian success. - the last world cup in november 2000 17, two months later, we were 21 in the feedback ranking, now we are the top three. we have not been beaten
10:09 am
in 3a games. he changed the style of italian football, going from a defensive kind of verbal to an offensive football. we have a few world players who did very well in the italian team, due to their age, who won the 2006 world cup. youngsters who really knew what they had to do, we performed, we are a team that impressed on the pitch, we keep attacking, i mean, it has completely changed and the credit is down to the manager. he keeps saying their players have been fantastic and he is right but without him, the players would not have done this.
10:10 am

10:14 am
a major competition. the abuse directed at them has been roundly condemned by the uk prime minister, by the metropolitan police here in the uk, in london, they are investigating this by social media companies including facebook. let's talk to our political correspondent. the prime minister, one of those condemning this abuse. what can you tell us about what he has been saying and what sort of action is being taken to try and find out who is responsible? it is being taken to try and find out who is responsible?— is responsible? it is a striking art of is responsible? it is a striking part of the — is responsible? it is a striking part of the conversation - is responsible? it is a striking part of the conversation in - is responsible? it is a striking - part of the conversation in england this morning, notjust the despondency, the sense of deflation following the penalty shoot out and's losing, the serious outbreak of racism on social media targeting this trio of lack of english
10:15 am
footballers are brave enough to follow their manager's command a colossally important game. roundly condemned the racist abuse they have suffered on social media overnight. let me show you the tweets from the british prime minister. about three hours ago now, seven in the morning. adding to that, the labour leader, he said in a tweet that the entire england team have brought us together and given us memories to last a lifetime. they represent the best of us and racial abuse is a disgrace and does not represent us. scratch below the universal condemnation that we are hearing this morning from the prime
10:16 am
minister, the leader of the opposition and others, and there is a political charge here as well. take a look at this. the deputy leader of the opposition labour party, she has tweeted, let me be clear, the prime minister and the home secretary give licence to the racist and are now racially abusing england players. borisjohnson and priti patel are like arsonists complaining about a fire that the board petrol on. total hypocrites. that is a reference to our unwillingness during the european championships and before them for downing street to outright condemn those fans who chose to boo at the taking of the knee that the england players and lots of sides, not least italy last night, have been doing for eight seconds before kick off of
10:17 am
each of the matches. there is a bit of political charge here. we should emphasise, though, the prime minister is saying categorically that he thinks the abuse is appalling. the culture secretary as saying that the social media companies need to address what they do as far as abuse on their platforms is concerned. if they do not do that, there is some legislation on the way that will hold them to account by potentially fining them. a recurrence of this long—standing discussion about how you go about regulating social media companies and whether regulation is a good idea and is practical. certainly after incidents like this, there are plenty who think something does need doing. thank you very much. we are going to show you some pictures of the england team hotel and let you know
10:18 am
that we are expecting to see the england players emerge from their very shortly. we will do our very best to bring you the pictures live when they emerge. a huge outpouring of praise, talking about the ugly side of this, the abuse they have been getting on social media, but a huge outpouring of praise for what the team have achieved and great hope for their future success with so many of this team, very young players, bukayo saka only 19 years old, the list goes on, to have got this far with a very young team, so much praise for them and for the manager gareth southgate. of course, for many households, there were split loyalties last night. let's

10:26 am
when as a team and lose as a team and it is not theirfault. immediate priority to let those three players because it will be going through a very difficult evening. he would want to reemphasise how proud he was of the team, their performance at the euros, outdone expectations by getting this far, and the next priority is to prepare to complete the qualification and desperately hoping that england can go one step further in the world cup in 16 months. we will come back to that in a minute, in terms of the tactics last night, the strategy and the decisions around who would take the penalties, what are your thoughts on that? was there anything that could have been done differently? i that? was there anything that could have been done differently?- have been done differently? i think that gareth southgate _ have been done differently? i think that gareth southgate did - have been done differently? i think that gareth southgate did not - have been done differently? i think that gareth southgate did not get l that gareth southgate did not get his tactics right for the game itself. the back three system which caught italy off guard in the first
10:27 am
few minutes i think stifled england more than it stifled the opposition. england struggled to get out and create after the opening goal, it was too easy for italy. it looked as though they did not have quite enough peace are attacking power in the team. it was too reminiscent of the team. it was too reminiscent of the 2018 semifinal defeat to croatia in moscow where england took an early lead and thenjust in moscow where england took an early lead and then just gave the ball up and defended too deep and got punished in the second half. i think that while gareth southgate has been tactically peppered throughout the tournament, yesterday we are handing back to the studio. gareth southgate is giving a news conference right now. just a quick note, you cannot see him at the moment, we are trying to fix that. but we can hear his answers. there
10:28 am
are a huge — but we can hear his answers. there are a huge number— but we can hear his answers. there are a huge number of— but we can hear his answers. there are a huge number of positives - but we can hear his answers. ii!” are a huge number of positives and those players will be far better for going through so many important victories, landmarks that they set, historic performances. in the main, they performed under huge pressure of being at home for the majority of the tournament, being one of the favourites, that was a far different situation to the team when we went to russia. they dealt with that so well in the opening game, in the game with germany in the semifinal, for a large part of the final, certainly the first half of the final, they dealt with that. we probably had a 20 minute period where we did not keep the ball as well as we needed to just after half—time, but then even the rest of the game was fairly even although we could not create the clear chances we have been able to in the past.
10:29 am
part of that is because we were against a team that had gone 13 games unbeaten, some incredibly experienced players, and the team that are just a little bit further ahead than us in their development and their progress. and, hello, can you hear me? yes. ultimately, this is the first team to reach a final in 55 years. you have to reflect unlike back it seems that you are struggling to embrace that you are struggling to embrace that today. is thatjust that you are struggling to embrace that today. is that just a that you are struggling to embrace that today. is thatjust a show of how great your ambitions are? yes. that today. is that just a show of how great your ambitions are? yes, i know in time — how great your ambitions are? yes, i know in time we _ how great your ambitions are? yes, i know in time we will— how great your ambitions are? yes, i know in time we will have _ how great your ambitions are? yes, i know in time we will have an - know in time we will have an appreciation of that. and i know the messages we are getting our underlining that, but when you are
10:30 am
in sport and you get to finals, you know those opportunities are so rare, and to be so close and to know what that has taken and to know you have to pick yourself up and go again, the day after, that is very difficult. you have given everything and the inner levels are low, and the emotions are drained. —— energy levels. we will go again, of course, but sometimes it is easy to say things like we can go on to win, it isa things like we can go on to win, it is a bit glib, it is a long journey, we have to qualify, we have steps to take, yes, you have all the complexities of players throughout the qualifying period that you have to start that cycle again, this has been fantastic to have the time with
10:31 am
the players that we get, to work with them every day, really embed the culture, embed our way of playing, those periods are what you left for as an international manager and when it comes to the end, it is very difficult. to thank yourself and also your communications team, who have changed communications and how it works with broadcasters, journalists, you have given us an enormous amount of time in a pressured situation and we truly appreciate that. many journalists who appreciate that. manyjournalists who could not have been at the games because of covid, but you have gone out of your way, we have to thank you for that, and we have to thank you for that, and we hope that media relationships can go forward in the same way. that
10:32 am
we hope that media relationships can go forward in the same way.- go forward in the same way. that is ve kind. go forward in the same way. that is very kind- i— go forward in the same way. that is very kind- i am _ go forward in the same way. that is very kind. i am fortunate _ go forward in the same way. that is very kind. i am fortunate to - go forward in the same way. that is very kind. i am fortunate to lead . very kind. i am fortunate to lead some incredible staff. you have highlighted the guys in the communications department, but all of our staff in all areas are special people. that is why we have been able to create the culture we have. i am fortunate. i sit at the top. as the leader you get all the praise. but the work in the background is phenomenal in all departments. it is a privilege to work with everybody and we do not have the team we have without that support. and about your coaching staff, how important have they been in this journey? yes, it is critical. the rules are too big for the manager to do everything. the detail that we are
10:33 am
able to go to, we have had some consistency and some changes within that group. martin has been with us throughout the last couple of campaigns and has done a good job. we had graham and chris with us this time and that added something different to the group. i am gratefulfor different to the group. i am grateful for what they did. but i have to highlight steve holland, he is a phenomenal coach, a phenomenal man. at times of the season when nobody is thinking about england, travelling back from matches, talking into the early hours, trying to plan things, trying to get things right. without his support and the quality of his work there is no way we could go to the stages we have in the last couple of tournaments. i am
10:34 am
a fully indebted to what he has done. bbc five live. i understand that you need to see the match back but i am sure it has been going around in your head over and over again. what is at the forefront of your mind about what you might have done differently last night? we picked a team because of a tactical problem that italy pose. areas of the pitch we needed to get pressure on them, and where we thought we could hurt them. for the first 45 minutes everybody would agree that that works. we did not keep the ball well enough for a 15, 20 minute period. we know that with midfield players of the quality of verratti, jorginho, that is going to be a strength with italy, they will
10:35 am
have possession. we were controlling the game without the ball for long periods, but that period we were a little bit more open. we then could not release that pressure by keeping the ball, which we had done so well in the first half. we changed the shape, which i think gave us a little bit more control, but it did open up spaces elsewhere. any tactical change, you have strengths and then there are weaknesses to any system. they went with a false nine for a period which is difficult to deal with, for a period which is difficult to dealwith, if for a period which is difficult to deal with, if your defender step out you leave spaces, if they stay end you leave spaces, if they stay end you get overloaded a bit in midfield, that is a difficult problem, that is difficult for any team to solve. we did not quite create the chances that we would have liked to, but you are against a
10:36 am
team that are incredible in terms of their defensive power as a team, not just the two centre backs. there are lots of things that i will reflect on of course. we do that after every game. that is the right process to go through. until you watch the game in absolute detail then i would not be giving you a fully accurate appraisal of that. talk sport. jordan pickford was superb last night. his contribution easy to be overlooked because of their result in the end but he was excellent. i their result in the end but he was excellent. ., ., ., excellent. i thought he had a brilliant tournament. - excellent. i thought he had a brilliant tournament. there l excellent. i thought he had a l brilliant tournament. there are excellent. i thought he had a - brilliant tournament. there are a lot of players who come into that category. you do not get to a final without so many players having played well. that is what happened for us.

10:38 am
shoot—out. he could do little more in terms of keeping the ball out of our net. that is always a starting point for any goalkeeper. he had a really outstanding tournament. henry winter of the times. this is civilised _ henry winter of the times. this is civilised for— henry winter of the times. this is civilised for a poster to admit defeat, — civilised for a poster to admit defeat, but are we, are england to nice to _ defeat, but are we, are england to nice to win? — defeat, but are we, are england to nice to win? i defeat, but are we, are england to nice to win?— nice to win? i do not see that, reall . nice to win? i do not see that, really- we _ nice to win? i do not see that, really. we have _ nice to win? i do not see that, really. we have got _ nice to win? i do not see that, really. we have got to - nice to win? i do not see that, really. we have got to a - nice to win? i do not see that, really. we have got to a final. nice to win? i do not see that, l really. we have got to a final for the first time in 55 years. i am not sure... iam not sure the first time in 55 years. i am not sure... i am not sure what a team that gets to a final, you are not a
10:39 am
nice team to get to a final. we have overcome a lot of hurdles that we have never been able to in the past. we know that a lot of players that are still very inexperienced in terms of international football, and have delivered at an incredibly high level, the more experienced players in the big matches were really able to use that experience to defeat germany, who had an incredibly experienced team, to come through a semifinal which was hugely challenging experience for them. and we have taken italy, who are a top, top team, and unbeaten in 30, write top team, and unbeaten in 30, write to the wire. if we had been torn apart or we had looked a mess, then
10:40 am
i might be thinking differently about it, but of course we are going to analyse everything, but we are also going to be realistic about that and notjust dive into things that and notjust dive into things that are not reality and i'm not the reason for not having one. —— are not the reason for not having victory. it is important to reflect carefully and analyse carefully when you are the coach, because i do not want to go along with narratives that probably are not correct, but also i have to reflect on everything thatis also i have to reflect on everything that is asked, which is totally fair. martin samuel, daily mail. italy— martin samuel, daily mail. italy have now won four world cups, italy have now won four world cups, i think it is the second european
10:41 am
championship. i know we have tried to play down history and everything throughout the tournament, the significance of it. but is there something in what happened last night about the fact it is 55 years, it is so long for as, and the only way you really overcome that is by getting to as many finals, getting to these situations as many times as countries like italy, germany, argentina do, because they have experience of winning, they have experience of winning, they have experience of winning, they have experience of losing, it adds massively to the football culture that those players have? yes, you are right. i remember when yes, you are right. i rememberwhen we look— yes, you are right. i rememberwhen we look back— yes, you are right. i rememberwhen we look back at jeremy's when in 2014 _ we look back at jeremy's when in 2014 they— we look back at jeremy's when in 2014. they had been to two semifinals —— germany's victory. semifinal— semifinals —— germany's victory. semifinal when they hosted in 2006,

10:45 am
the expectation of the group, when they come together now, will be, this is how it works, this is how we train every day, this is what is needed. this is what we need to do to get to the level to win. that should be a process that stands as in good stead. press association. following on from that, what happens with the _ following on from that, what happens with the group, are they gone now, did you _ with the group, are they gone now, did you have — with the group, are they gone now, did you have one last meeting together? you said last night it is about— together? you said last night it is about the — together? you said last night it is about the collective rather than individuals. we have discussed the sickening _ individuals. we have discussed the sickening abuse in that some players. _ sickening abuse in that some players, what support processes are in place _ players, what support processes are in place for _ players, what support processes are in place for them? we players, what support processes are in place for them?— players, what support processes are in place for them? we have got to be there, in place for them? we have got to be there. mickey — in place for them? we have got to be there, mickey sure _ in place for them? we have got to be there, mickey sure that _ in place for them? we have got to be

10:47 am
outlook. they have all given everything they possibly could. i am tremendously grateful for that. and i know the country is, because you can sense from the reactions of people. they will all head on their way now. they need a break, they need a rest. i hope they all have a fantastic summer. the express. this- the express. this is so much different from the postmortem after the last euros. i know— postmortem after the last euros. i know you — postmortem after the last euros. i know you said earlier, two semifinals and a final now, makes us consistently — semifinals and a final now, makes us consistently one of the best teams in europe — consistently one of the best teams in europe i— consistently one of the best teams in europe. i think we have done that by anticipating what the opposition are doing _ by anticipating what the opposition are doing and adapting accordingly. in are doing and adapting accordingly. in 2022— are doing and adapting accordingly. in 2022 will we be in a position more _ in 2022 will we be in a position more to— in 2022 will we be in a position more to imprint our own on two

10:49 am
tournament, without having been able tournament, without having been able to play that back forward together too often in two years before. luke shaw only came back in with us in march for one game, he had a phenomenal tournament as well. we were constantly dealing with uncertainties. kalvin phillips, amazing treatment. we were not sure we were going to have him in the weeks leading into the first camp. —— amazing tournament. remarkable yearin —— amazing tournament. remarkable year in terms of trying to build something consistent. we never had the players altogether until seven days before the start of the tournament itself. you would liked tournament itself. you would liked to have built across the entire season, but that was not the realities of the season we had. that should be the aim, moving forward. in some areas of the team we have got clear strength, and players who
10:50 am
were in form, and got clear strength, and players who were inform, and in got clear strength, and players who were in form, and in other areas of the team, we do not have quite the same amount of strength and we have had to do it differently, and do it our way. had to do it differently, and do it ourway. by had to do it differently, and do it our way. by adapting and adjusting we have managed to get to a final. of course you are always looking for perfection and always looking to improve and we must continue to do that. rob harris. does it frustrate you and are rob harris. — does it frustrate you and are you reflecting — does it frustrate you and are you reflecting on how to tackle players how you _ reflecting on how to tackle players how you -- — reflecting on how to tackle players how you —— how you have players who have generated so much pride that you still— have generated so much pride that you still have two address with fans being _ you still have two address with fans being aggressive, offensive, violence. _ being aggressive, offensive, violence, and counter to the image the players — violence, and counter to the image the players have presented? we cannot the players have presented? - cannot control that, we can only give the example we think we should,
10:51 am
and represent the country in the way that we feel we should when you are representing england. everybody has to remember when they support the team that they also represent england, and should represent what we stand for. the players have done that brilliantly. we can only continue to dry to affect the things that we can. we have had a positive effect on society but we cannot affect everything, other people have responsibilities in those areas. we have all got to work collectively to constantly improve those things. olly foster, bbc. just as those players are really hurting at the moment, especially
10:52 am
the three that mr penalties, you take collective responsibility and responsibility as well, how much does it hurt you that you did not get things right? you talk about feeling to solve those problems that roberto mancini set you. —— failing. as a manager you have to accept that whenever there is a defeat there will be intense analysis of everything that happened in the game. i have benefited from a lot of praise during the tournament. and if we did not get that right last night, if i did not get that right last night, i have to accept that as well. some of that analysis could be accurate, and i expect some of it won't be. but i need time to reflect on all of that. you make hundreds of
10:53 am
decisions in the course of a week, in the course of a tournament there are even more, and you are not going to get all of those rights. you call them as you see them at the time. you have got to get more right than wrong. if i did not get the calls right last night then so be it, i have to live with that. we concluded there and i thank you all. england an. — england manager all. en-land mana-ergareth all. en-land mana-er gareth south-ate england manager gareth southgate giving that a news conference there. he said he feels like, my stomach has been ripped out this morning. he said, i know in time we will have an appreciation of what we achieved but to be so close and know that that has been taken away and to have to pick yourself up and go on again, that there is hard. he said,
10:54 am
emotions are drained. he said, if you want success you have to consistently be evolving, improving, and in those latter stages of big tournaments. and he said, the first time now they are seeing some consistency being in the semifinal and final, he said it is a step in the right direction and we need to remember that. the right direction and we need to rememberthat. he the right direction and we need to remember that. he spoke about what happened after the match last night, there was a long period in address and with the players, they then met off to see their families. he said he had the moment with each player individually to thank them for all that they have given. he said they had given everything they possibly could. he said, they do need a break and the rest. he was asked about some of the actions of the fans. of course there has been that social media racist tweets and messages sent to those three players that mr penalties last night. that has been roundly condemned and on that he
10:55 am
said, the team can only set the example they cannot control what fans do but everybody should remember that when they follow the team they represent the country also. prince william has tweeted on that this morning. he has said, i am sickened by the racist abuse aimed at england players after last night's match. there has been condemnation of that racist abuse from all quarters this morning. the team have been brilliant throughout that tournament in terms of seeing, we have got that game in the bag, now we look ahead. he was asked about looking ahead to the world capped 18 months away. he said, it would be glib to say, we could go on to that and when, we have got a whole journey ahead of
10:56 am
as, the cycle starts again. that was a news conference from gareth southgate. we will have more reaction to the result of that match. he said he feels sick to the stomach. a lot will empathise with that this morning. you are watching bbc news. now, the weather. something drier, brighter and warmer on the horizon, good news for those of you stuck with the downpours today. quite a few of them around. away from that, more sunshine for the rest of today. extensive sheet of cloud should be pushing up from western europe. breaking best across south—western areas at the moment. showers throughout the afternoon. showers throughout the afternoon. showers breaking out, west of scotland, north—west england, northern ireland. slow moving, heavy

11:02 am
prince william has said he's sickened by the racist abuse aimed at england players after last night's match, where england's bid to end their 55—year wait for a major trophy — in the end — came upjust short. it ended in painfully familiar agony of being on the wrong end of a penalty shoot—out — as italy claimed the euro 2020 crown at wembley. the manager, gareth southgate, said the defeat was incredibly painful. the captain, harry kane, said it would probably hurt the players for the rest of their careers but that they should be extremely proud of what they'd achieved. three england players missed their penalties, the final one from 19—year—old — bukayo saka, who was heartbroken — and had to be consoled
11:03 am
by his team—mates and manager. the trio's social media pages have since been flooded with racist comments, leading the fa to release a statement condemning the "disgusting behaviour". it's also been condemned by the prime minister borisjohnson. let's speak to annita mcveigh at wembley. thank you very much and we heard the england manager gareth southgate to stay a short time ago at a news conference that the team cannot control everything or affect everything. he said they could only set the example that they believe they should. he thought they had a very positive effect on many areas of society but there are some things we cannot effect and of course he was alluding to that racist abuse. these players have campaigned on so many issues from child poverty to
11:04 am
support for the nhs and of course on theissue support for the nhs and of course on the issue of racism, taking me before the final began last night at wembley along with the italy side as well supporting that. but still best torrent of abuse levelled at those three young black england players who took brave... brave enough to step up and take those penalties who unfortunately missed them. we have heard some of the condemnation of all of that. listening to what gareth southgate had to say as well, you could tell that there had been an emotional tool for losing the game. he said emotions were drained, the energy levels were low but he said that when he got his logical brain back in a few days' time, he believed that he and all the players will pick themselves up, look at the many positives in all of this and move forward. let's listen to a little bit more of what he had to

more missing hit for the vast majority, not as heavy, more sunshine, it should really touch warmer. see you soon. —— should feel a touch. hell,o this is bbc news. the headlines... it is saved! it is italy who are the champions of europe! england s euro dream ends in heartbreak after the team loses to italy in a penalty shootout. agony for england's fans after coming so close to winning a major trophy after so many years. the devastation of getting so close and not being able to give our it has to be a step in the right direction, it is not where we wanted to get you, when you are so close, that even more painful, it feels like the stomach has been ripped out

11:34 am
the dust settling here after that disappointing result last night, frustrating result for england. hopes high that at long last they could have got over the line in the final, not to be. despite what was such a brilliant staff england matt luke shaw with that early goal in the first half, a first half that england dominated, a different story in the second half, gareth southgate in the second half, gareth southgate in the second half, gareth southgate in the press conference this morning saying his side lost control in that second half against italy, as it aged it was six of time. once again penalties doing it for england, falling under wrong side of a penalty shoot—out, so disappointing. gareth southgate saying how much it hurt for that team and those players who missed those penalties last night. marcus rashford came on as a substitute, he missed his penalty, jadon sancho on as a substitute as well, late order that game, one of the first things he had to do was
11:35 am
take such a huge spot kick, their biggest match of his life. it was saved, and then another chance to try and keep england's dream alive, not to be as the italian goalkeeper saved that spot kick, sparking disappointing scenes, frustration for england, huge sadness at the end, but as you know, gareth southgate in that press conference saying his thoughts immediately went to those players who missed their penalty, he himself knows what it is like to miss a penalty in a major tournament, doing so here at wembley in euro 96 as england lost to germany. let's hearfrom gareth southgate now who spoke of the anguish and disappointment and sadness. we have had the first signs of consistency semifinal, final, it has to be a step in the right direction,
11:36 am
not ultimately where we wanted to get to, and when you are so close, thatis get to, and when you are so close, that is even more painful, it feels like the stomach has been ripped out this morning. but i know when my logical brain comes back to life in a few days, that is the process we have to go through, we have to keep continuing that. the very worst side of football presenting itself last night. as we've been hearing this morning, some really disappointing reactions to the defeat. after their penalty misses, it has been condemned. the prime minister borisjohnson, the fa, and prince william have condemened racst abuse directed at the three england players who missed penalties — marcus rashford, jadon sancho and bakayo saka. the official england account tweeted: "we're disgusted that some of our squad, who have given everything for the shirt this summer, have been subjected to discriminatory abuse online. we stand with our players".
11:37 am
as you can imagine, this is only going to add to calls for some sort of change to be brought about for those social media companies to really tackle this issue of racism, which seems to present itself time and again. marcus rashford, this is not the first time he has suffered racist abuse online, when you consider the same thing happened after manchester united competed in the europa league final. let's hear from alan shearer who called it absolutely disgusting. what on earth are people thinking when these guys have been brave enough to go and take a penalty, what are people thinking about to go online and abuse these players? what is wrong with some people? it is so sad and ridiculous, i hope this social media companies expose these individuals, absolutely disgusting. it does leave a hugely sour taste in
11:38 am
their mouth, and when you consider some of the scenes we saw on full here yesterday on wembley way, thousands of fans gathered here, if fee broil atmosphere, certainly spilled over when you consider that some of those fans, a small section who arrive here without tickets, managed to breach security and forced a way through the barriers and gain entry into the stadium. this is what the fa chief executive had to say about fan behaviour at wembley yesterday. it was sad and frustrating to see some of them trying to break into the stadium, unfortunately one or two succeeded, we do not know how many, we're still putting together all the evidence to find out what has happened. we will take action against people involved. when we step back and look at the matches we stage at wembley and the positive impact throughout the country, the bias that has been created, we have had so much praise i sure that sets
11:39 am
us up well for future tournaments. if you echoed by gareth southgate this morning saying they do not represent or stand for the england team. —— a view echoed. you hope it is those images on the pitch, togetherness and that this court have brought throughout this tournament, you hope that those are the memories that england fans won't cling to and not the scenes we saw unfilled at certain moments here at wembley yesterday. —— unfold. couldn't agree more, got on the subject of abuse, i want to pick up with some breaking lines for you. this from a twitter spokesperson who is saying that following the racist abuse of marcus rashford, jadon sancho, yesterday after the game, twitter has removed more than 1000 tweets, and permanently suspended and number of accounts, they do not
11:40 am
say how many, but a number have been permanently suspended for the cause of racist abuse. we are hearing from manchester please that a mural of marcus rashford, manchester united player, has been vandalised in the withington area of manchester, the police say this happened, they heard from someone at around two 50p —— 2:50am this morning, that the mural had been damaged, the police say it is racially aggravated damage. we are not showing you the pictures of what has been done to the mural, but to explain it has been defaced, the police are calling it racially aggravated damage, and greater manchester police a they will be working alongside the city council and the artist to ensure the graffiti, racialabuse and the artist to ensure the graffiti, racial abuse is removed and the mural is restored as soon as
11:41 am
possible. the chief superintendent of the greater manchester police says this is disgraceful behaviour and will not be tolerated, greater manchester and prides itself on being made up from a number of diverse communities, and hate crime in any form is completely unacceptable. and not welcome here in our city. let's talk some more now about what has been happening on the pitch, we have discussed england's performance, and what it means for the team going forward. let's focus for a while on italy. this was a big deal for italy, let's focus for a while on italy. this was a big dealfor italy, they failed to qualify for the last world cup. victory last night to become european champions once again, all this metre the last they were champions was in 1968 —— all the sweeter. you can imagine the scenes across italy of celebration through

11:43 am
wanted to talk about it, one man said it was the highlight of the year, and other couldn't stop laughing when i asked him how he felt about it. also a lot of sympathy for england. i heard time and again how it was a good team, strong team, the italians were shivering at times, and it is really tough for any team to lose on penalties. tough for any team to lose on penalties-— tough for any team to lose on enalties. ., ~' , ., , . , penalties. thank you very much my lu . penalties. thank you very much my lucy- let's — penalties. thank you very much my lucy- let's talk _ penalties. thank you very much my lucy. let's talk now _ penalties. thank you very much my lucy. let's talk now to _ penalties. thank you very much my lucy. let's talk now to an _ penalties. thank you very much my lucy. let's talk now to an italy - lucy. let's talk now to an italy fan. manuele di miceli joins us from torino. just give us a sense of your thoughts as you watched the game last night, the early goal from england, a strong period of possession, and of course that penalty shoot—out. the possession, and of course that penalty shoot-out. the penalty, i don't look — penalty shoot-out. the penalty, i don't look because _ penalty shoot-out. the penalty, i don't look because i _ penalty shoot-out. the penalty, i don't look because i do _ penalty shoot-out. the penalty, i don't look because i do not - penalty shoot-out. the penalty, i don't look because i do not wantl penalty shoot-out. the penalty, i i don't look because i do not want to look at the penalty. my dad said,

11:47 am
million of those people by watching on bbc one, 6 million watching on itv because it was broadcast across both stations. also interesting that the peak, 31 million, the average for the match was an absolutely phenomenal 29.85 million, almost 30 million. incredible that the average for a game that went to extra time and penalties was only! million lower than the peak. with my own eyes i witnessed a couple of younger viewers falling asleep during extra time, i do not know if they count in the figures are not. i time, i do not know if they count in the figures are not.— the figures are not. i wonder if we can't all the _ the figures are not. i wonder if we can't all the people _ the figures are not. i wonder if we can't all the people who _ the figures are not. i wonder if we can't all the people who were - the figures are not. i wonder if we l can't all the people who were hiding their heads in their hands or peeping through their fingers during that penalty shoot—out just to pick up that penalty shoot—out just to pick up on those figures, it is incredible but not surprising, given that we have graduated months
11:48 am
pandemic, we had this audience for a metre dash major sporting event, and it brought so many people who perhaps would not watch football. than perhaps would not watch football. sift england game in normal times we perhaps would not watch football. fifty england game in normal times we get 8-10,000,000, what england game in normal times we get 8—10,000,000, what you see very clearly here is excitement building throughout the tournament, the quarterfinal peaked at 20 million, semifinal with denmark peaked at 26 million, the final picking just a fraction below, 31 million. all kinds of people who would not normally watch football were drawn into watch this. the figure for the 1966 world cup final is often bandied around as the highest viewing figure in british history, don a completely different way, tv viewing figures were worked out in an astonishingly different way, but the figure is bandied around for 1966 and 32 million, a little behind that, but it is very hard to compare those figures.
11:49 am

11:51 am
at low—risk, but even after being doubly vaccinated i am not sure what protection i have, so i do not do things with indoor mixing, without ventilation, with people who i do not really know if people might be carrying covid or if they are vaccinated, i cannot take the risk. so you have just mentioned you a double vaccinated but you do not know what level of protection that has afforded you. if there anyway to measure it?— has afforded you. if there anyway to measure it? ., ,., ., , , measure it? there are some measures, but i think measure it? there are some measures, but i think from — measure it? there are some measures, but i think from what _ measure it? there are some measures, but i think from what my _ measure it? there are some measures, but i think from what my medical- but i think from what my medical professionals tell me that things like antibody levels and some other measures like t cells might not give the full picture but i know myself and this is just lucky because i am in the study, i do not have any antibodies, so the traditional measure which may not tell the full picture, by that i do not have any, so it is a question of, do i have protection or not? it is a bit of an

11:53 am

this is bbc news, the headlines... as england lose to italy in the euros final. three black players who missed in the penalty shoot—out have been targeted with racist abuse on social media. it is unforgivable, really. i know a lot of that has come from abroad, people who have tracked those things are able to explain that but not all of it. it is just not what we stand for. prince william joins the pm and others in condemning the racist abuse as twitter deletes over a thousand tweets and permanently suspends a number of accounts. celebrations in rome — as italy's footballers are crowned champions of europe for the first time since 1968. here, millions of england fans felt
12:01 pm
the agony of defeat in the final moments after coming so close to winning a major trophy after so many years. i'm annita mcveigh here at wembley. a massive 30.95 million people watched last night's euro final. the biggest peak audience since the funeral of diana princess of wales. italy may have emerged victorious but england team have many reasons to hold their head up high. borisjohnson is expected to announce lifting the remaining coronavirus restrictions in england in one week's time — but people will be urged to wear face masks in crowded places. america's west is scorched by record—breaking heat as california and nevada brace for even higher temperatures.
12:02 pm
good afternoon. the england manager, gareth southgate, has described racist abuse directed at his players as "unforgivable". earlier, prince william said he's sickened by the abuse. england's bid to end their 55—year wait for a major trophy — in the end — came upjust short. it ended in painfully familiar agony of being on the wrong end of a penalty shoot—out — as italy claimed the euro 2020 crown at wembley. the manager, gareth southgate, said the defeat was incredibly painful. the captain, harry kane, said it would probably hurt the players for the rest of their careers but that they should be extremely proud of what they'd achieved. three england players missed their penalties, and all of their social media pages have since been flooded with racist comments, leading the condemnation form the fa and the prime minister borisjohnson. twitter says it's removed over
12:03 pm
a thousand and has also permanently suspended a number of accounts. let's speak to annita mcveigh at wembley. thank you very much. welcome back to wembley. what we saw at the team hotel this morning from the england manager gareth southgate, not that we expected anything else from him, was a considered and thoughtful response to the events of the night before so many hopes and expectations resting on the shoulders of the england team. a young team who had delivered so much in the tournament and you knew from what the players and gareth southgate said in the run—up to that final that they really wanted to deliver it for the fans. it wasn't to be at last night, that inevitable it seems sometimes penalty shoot—out. a cruel way to decide any football game. but had seen strong
12:04 pm
moments from both teams. but italy emerging victorious, theirfirst european title since 1968 and huge ioy european title since 1968 and huge joy for the italian team and their fans after missing out on the last world cup. let's reflect a little bit on what gareth southgate had to say at that news conference. he was tired, emotionally drained, he said that was the state of mind of all of the players and the whole team. he said these opportunities are so rare and we were so close. but he said the players would want more as a result of the experience they had gone through here in this tournament and coming so close to winning the title, they would want more, he said. on that vile racist abuse, he said. on that vile racist abuse, he said for some of the team to be abused was unforgivable. he said, we have been a beacon of light in bringing people together. the national team stands for everybody.
12:05 pm
that was the rebuttal by gareth southgate, the england manager, to that racist abuse directed towards market rashford, jayden sanford and bukayo saka. the three young black england players who bravely took the penalties last night but unfortunately missed. let's hear some more now from gareth southgate himself. the players have had an incredible togetherness and spirit which i think has brought so many parts of our country together, so they should be, and i think they are, incredibly proud of what they have done. for some of them to be abused is unforgivable, really. i know a lot of that has come from abroad, the people that track those things have been able to explain that, but not all of it. it is just not what we stand for. we have been a beacon of
12:06 pm
light in bringing people together and people being able to relate to the national team, and the national team stands for everybody. so, that togetherness has to continue and we have shown the power our country has when it does come together and has that energy and positivity together. we felt that from the fans and i am incredibly proud of the players, and as i said yesterday, the game, we needed to win in hundred and 20 minutes. we were a little bit short in that period. then it is my decision who takes the penalties. it's not a case of the players not volunteering or a more experienced players backing out, they didn't have the chance. that was my choice, nobody else's. my decision to give the guys that took it to the penalties that they took. still got
12:07 pm
huge belief in them. those boys have done a brilliantjob and we heal together as a team now. we are therefore them. olly foster is at the grove hotel. i believe gareth southgate left the hotel a short while ago. i i believe gareth southgate left the hotel a short while ago.— hotel a short while ago. i know ho eful hotel a short while ago. i know hopeful fans — hotel a short while ago. i know hopeful fans had _ hotel a short while ago. i know hopeful fans had gathered - hotel a short while ago. i knowl hopeful fans had gathered there hotel a short while ago. i know - hopeful fans had gathered there to cheer on the team, the players and the rest of the team as they emerged. the rest of the team as they emerged-— the rest of the team as they emerued. ~ ., , ,., the rest of the team as they emerued. . ., , ., emerged. we have seen some of the -la ers, emerged. we have seen some of the players. john — emerged. we have seen some of the players, john stones _ emerged. we have seen some of the players, john stones has _ emerged. we have seen some of the players, john stones hasjust - emerged. we have seen some of the players, john stones hasjust left, i players, john stones has just left, calvin phillips, jordan henderson. we believe not all the players return to from wembley last night. gareth southgate to give that virtual news conference to about 85 members of the press. i was one of them asking a couple of the questions in the england manager has just left in the last couple of minutes. there was a ripple of
12:08 pm
applause from about two dozen fans who their way into this luxury golf resort in hertfordshire. you can hear them there. gareth southgate give them a wave and waved out of the window of his limousine as he was driven away. he says he needs a break now to collect his thoughts. i think they all do because it has been such an intense month of this euros, seven matches played, getting further than any other england team since 1955 and listen it by those margins of missed penalties. —— losing. today, as he did in the immediate aftermath of that penalty shoot out, he shielded his players. he said last night they were not alone as they walk to the penalty spot, possibly the longest walk, it must have felt. today he said, it was my responsibility, but did not have the option. i chose who we take the penalties. obviously, it didn't
12:09 pm
work out with those three missed spot kicks. obviously, england facing questions as well now from the behaviour of their fans and that apple warrant racist abuse online. he says we don't represent that. we are a beacon of light and we will continue to set an example. —— that abhorrent racist abuse. is it about what they are doing to stop these vile comments, this hate crime, the racist abuse appearing on the social media platforms in the first instance? this morning facebook has released a statement following the abuse targeted at players on instagram. it says "no one should have to experience racist abuse anywhere, and we don't want it on instagram.
12:10 pm
we quickly removed comments and accounts directing abuse at england's footballers last night and we'll continue to take action against those that break our rules. and the former england forward alan shearer gave his reaction to the racist abuse this morning. there are so many positives for social media but also so many negatives. the positives are it allows a lot of these players and the squad to show their personality both on the pitch and off the pitch, and we have seen some of the great work that raheem sterling has done, marcus rashford has done. but on the negative side and what on earth are people thinking about when these guys have been brave enough to go and take a penalty, what are people thinking about to go online and abuse these players? what is wrong with some people? it is just so sad and ridiculous. i hope the social media companies expose these individuals. absolutely disgusting.
12:11 pm
let's hear more on this from our political correspondent, chris mason about the political reaction to that abuse. it about the political reaction to that abuse. . . ~ about the political reaction to that abuse. , , ~ ., abuse. it is striking how politicised _ abuse. it is striking how politicised the - abuse. it is striking how politicised the reaction l abuse. it is striking how. politicised the reaction has abuse. it is striking how- politicised the reaction has been. yes, there is widespread condemnation of that abuse of the england players but certainly some teasing out of what they see as a certain amount of hypocrisy on the part of the prime minister and some seniorfigures in part of the prime minister and some senior figures in government. part of the prime minister and some seniorfigures in government. let me show you tweets from the prime minister. this was around about seven o'clock this morning. boris johnson saying the england team deserved to be lauded as heroes, not racially based on social media. those responsible for this appalling abuse should be ashamed of themselves. a categoric condemnation from the prime minister of the abuse of the england players. sir keir starmer, the labour leader, echoing the language from borisjohnson,
12:12 pm
saying that anyone racially abusing the england players is a disgrace and doesn't represent us at all. more can and must be done to stop online abuse, but a tweet from his deputy angela rayner saying, let me be clear, the prime minister and the home secretary gave license to the bassists who booed the england players and racially abusing england players. borisjohnson and priti patel, a reference to the home secretary, are like arsonists complaining about a fire that they poured petrol on. total hypocrites, she says. that is a reference to a willingness at an earlier stage of the tournament, or an unwillingness, from downing street to directly condemn the billing by some fans of the taking of the knee by england players and others during the tournament. —— billing. a little later on the altar of their language
12:13 pm
and said players should respect a decision, fans should respect the decision, fans should respect the decision taken by players if they chose to take the knee. chris mason reporting. let me bring you news about an apology from the conservative mp from dover who has apologised for suggesting that marcus rashford should have spent more time focusing on football than coach, playing politics after he missed a penalty last night. this morning she said in a statement, i applaud the england team who gave their all in the euro 2020. last night i shared the frustration and heartbreak of millions of other england fans. she goes on, i regret messaging privately a rash reaction about marcus rashford's missed penalty and apologised to him for any suggestion that he is not fully focused on football. she is referring there to a message sent on a whatsapp group that included other conservative mps. she goes on risk
12:14 pm
to the world cup and i look forward to the world cup and i look forward to marcus rashford's and edition at that time. she apologises for suggesting marcus rashford should have spent more time football and less on politics. let me just remind you about some other music brought to you a short while ago. this is coming from greater manchester police following the racist abuse on social media. a mural of marcus rashford in weathering manchester, the mural which is in a street has been vandalised. police have said it is racially aggravated damage. not showing images of what that consisted of. but greater manchester police say they are going to be
12:15 pm
working alongside manchester city council and and the artist to remove the graffiti and make sure the mural is restored as soon as possible. the chief superintendent paul savill said this is disgraceful behaviour, will not be tolerated. he said greater manchester prides itself on the made up from a number of diverse communities and hate crime in any form is completely unacceptable and is not welcome here in our city. greater manchester police are appealing for anyone who has any information to help identify the offender or offenders behind what they are calling a hate crime that is racially aggravated vandalism of the mural of marcus rashford in manchester. following the racist abuse on social media, we have heard from twitter that they have removed over 1000 posts and primly suspended a number of accounts following.
12:16 pm
a number of accounts looking over 1000 posts and primly suspended a number of accounts looking more broadly at the racist abuse last night, i spoke to our technology correspondent and discussed with him what the social media companies were saying and what more they were going to try to do to tackle this. it is claiming they quickly remove comments and accounts. we know an awful lot do get to get through and it is throwing it back at the users to protect themselves. i'm sure a lot of people will say they shouldn't have to go to extra measures to protect themselves from this vile racist abuse. this is a huge test for the social media companies, probably the biggest test yet because this problem has come back time and again. we heard about marcus rashford having been abused before after the europa league final. they are turning to automation, trying to get machines in place to effectively spot this stuff
12:17 pm
and remove it almost before it is posted but that is pretty difficult. we had one example last night. somebody complained about a comment made on one of the instagram pages of one of the footballers which wasjust using an emoji of an orangutan. they got a reply back saying that our technology has found this comment doesn't go against our community guidelines. the reply made clear they were struggling to cope with the sheer volume of complaints and they were leaving it to the machines in the first place rather than human moderators. it went on, our technology isn't perfect and we are continually trying to improve it. this is a problem. it underlines the sheer volume of abuse that facebook, instagram and twitter are all dealing with. their attempts to use technology
12:18 pm
to counter it and the fact that that technology is still pretty limited, for instance, in understanding what an emoji which might be completely innocent in one context means in another context. i guess some people will call the response and explanation an excuse and say the social media companies have known for a long time what the issues are, and they need to do more to tackle it to stop these comments being put up there in the first place. the people they are directed at, many of these young footballers, have a huge social media presence and influence themselves. there was that time when football in england and in other parts of the world, many removed themselves from social media for a period of days in protest. the social media companies do not want to lose the presence of people like that _ on- platforms, do they? they don't and they know
12:19 pm
how important it is. it underlines how difficult to control these vast platforms are. and how regulations now are a real threat to them. we know mainstream media organisations, if such comments appeared on their platforms, would be in deep trouble with ofcom, the regulator. that hasn't been the case up until now but that kind of regulation is probably coming down the track. there will be more and more pressure on them to deal with material that sometimes is not actually illegal. this is the difficult area. material that is abusive and harmful but not technically illegal. they will say they have a difficult tightrope to walk because on the one hand they are accused of acting as a kind of sensor and a decision—maker, and on the other hand they are accused of allowing this kind of hate speech to flourish.
12:20 pm
let's leave wembley for the moment but stay with sports and head to the bbc sports centre to join gavin. thank you very much indeed. as we have been hearing all morning and into the afternoon, england came heartbreakingly close but their european dream ended in penalty defeats to italy at wembley last night after reaching their first major tournament final in 55 years. hopes are high ahead of the match but incidence off the pitch and dominating the headlines, both fan behaviour and the stadium. and unfortunately racist abuse aimed at some of the england players following that loss. england manager gareth southgate said he took responsibility for the shoot—out defeats but said the team are making progress. we defeats but said the team are making rouress. ~ . defeats but said the team are making rouress. . ., ., , progress. we have had the first sins progress. we have had the first si . ns of progress. we have had the first signs of some _ progress. we have had the first signs of some consistency, - progress. we have had the first| signs of some consistency, semi final, final, it has to be a step in the right direction. it is not ultimately where we wanted to get to and when you are so close, it is even more painful of course. it
12:21 pm
feels like your stomach has been ripped out this morning, but i know when my logical brain comes back to life in a few days, that is the process we have to go through. we have got to keep continuing that. questions have been asked about the policing and security at the game after fans managed to policing and security at the game afterfans managed to push through the barriers at wembley before the match and gain entry into the stadium. england's chief executive says he was sad and frustrated to see it. it says he was sad and frustrated to see it. . . ,., says he was sad and frustrated to see it. ., , ., , ., see it. it was sad and frustrating to see some _ see it. it was sad and frustrating to see some people _ see it. it was sad and frustrating to see some people time - see it. it was sad and frustrating to see some people time to - see it. it was sad and frustrating l to see some people time to break into the stadium. one or two succeeded, we don't know how many yet and we're still pulling together all the evidence to find out what happened. we will take action against people involved. i think when we step back and look at the matches we are staged at wembley on the positive impact and buzz that has been created, we have had so much praise. that sets us in good
12:22 pm
stead for future tournaments. the en . land stead for future tournaments. the england developed and what happens next will continue throughout the day. gareth southgate was very effective in his press conference but had the team will go forward now, progression. they did very well to get to the final of the euros and investigations will be continuing into those tweets on social media and the abuse of the three players we saw earlier on today. that is the sport for now. we will have more in the next hour. we havejust sport for now. we will have more in the next hour. we have just received some new pictures of what happens when fans tried to force their way into the stadium without tickets. very dramatic pictures here. the clashes with the security and people breaking through. running into the stadium. incredible pictures here.
12:23 pm
this was a couple of hours before kick—off. when those fans decided to force their way into the stadium, some did manage to get inside wembley stadium. a spokesman at the time said a small group of people got into the stadium and they were working closely with stadium security and stewards to remove this people. yeah, those new pictures from the ones we were seeing before are a different perspective of this clashes with security as this england fans managed, some of them, to break their way into the stadium. prime minister borisjohnson is expected to confirm later the plan to lift almost all legal restrictions on social contact in england on 19july, but has urged people to be cautious. he warned that covid—19 cases, currently at about 30,000 a day, would continue to rise as society reopened. let's speak now to devi sridhar, professor of global public health
12:24 pm
at the university of edinburgh. welcome, thank you very much for joining us. the tone is changing a bit from the government in terms of now talking about more vigorously about wanting people to wear masks. what are your thoughts on how things stand now? i what are your thoughts on how things stand now? ~ . stand now? i think there is definitely _ stand now? i think there is definitely a _ stand now? i think there is definitely a change - stand now? i think there is definitely a change in - stand now? i think there is definitely a change in tone| stand now? i think there is - definitely a change in tone because what we are seeing is dealt, this new variant that is taking over across the world is a game changer. not only in britain but across europe, the united states, east asia, australia. we are seeing country struggling with a whole new world in terms of what they have to do to suppress this virus. i think we will see from the government, not a backtracking that more caution, saying do we want to call this freedom day as cases arising everywhere or do we try to release restrictions cautiously, keep face coverings in place, put in place of

evidence to know the latter option, to be vaccinated and then to be exposed is far better in terms of your chances of getting prolonged covid in severely ill for months. what would you like the policy to be going forward in terms of vaccination and what happens in terms of restrictions? the government is clear on the choice to test taking at this point in restrictions, but do you think that is right? restrictions, but do you think that is riuht? . restrictions, but do you think that is riuht? , ., is right? the first thing to say if there is no _ is right? the first thing to say if there is no easy _ is right? the first thing to say if there is no easy option. - is right? the first thing to say if there is no easy option. i - is right? the first thing to say if| there is no easy option. i cannot point any country in the world and say they are winning at this. in 2020 there were countries country is littered exceptionally well, but they are now struggling with delta. it is challenging for everywhere. here in the uk, it means is coverings indoors, that is an easy way in the sense we can keep shops open and maintain the profits we have made, that is something simple we can do for each other. the second thing is we have to anticipate a spite because of the football. it is impossible to look at the seams in london and across the country, not just at wembley but all the parting

12:34 pm
it's heartbreaking. i've never been more heartbroken. horrible! commentator: rashford has missed. to lose on penalties again isjust devastating. absolutely devastating. the night started with hope, expectation even. this is the kirby estate in bermondsey in london. in trafalgar square, fans were desperate for an all—night party. we've made it, we're here, come on, england! this is mark and his dad, john. john was at wembley for the 1966 final and he's back. he didn't have long to wait before the whole country was in dreamland. trippier. it's trippier who will cross and it's luke shaw! we're going to enjoy these goal celebrations, because to be honest,
12:35 pm
there wasn't much else to celebrate all night. in fan zones and front rooms, england wasjumping. oh, my god! the night settled into a cagey, tense encounter, then inevitably, the almost random chaos of penalties. from euphoricjoy... ..to total despair. that is such a devastating way for england fans to see their team going out of the tournament, again, on penalties. and yet, in defeat, gareth southgate's men have played with unity, with purpose, with dignity and with pride.

12:37 pm
than 100 heathrow security staff being paying, which meant there was disruption at terminal five, long queues we were hearing from passengers via twitter, heathrow is confirming there was disruption earlier because of the paying from the nhs test and trace out, but due to colleagues being instructed to self—isolate, they have activated additional team members as a result of that, so now those additional team members have meant that the operation has now returned to normal and they are apologising to passengers for any inconvenience caused. the viewing figures from last night's euro finals have been released — and they were huge. annita mcveigh spoke to our entertainment correspondent colin paterson earlier. the viewing figures during the penalty shoot—out was 30.95 million,
12:38 pm
almost 31 million people were tuning in at that exact moment. that is the highest viewing figure for any event since princess diana's funeral way backin since princess diana's funeral way back in 1997. 31 million, interesting to see the breakdown, 25 million of those people were watching on bbc one, six million watching on bbc one, six million watching on bbc one, six million watching on itv, because it was broadcast across both stations. now, also what is interesting with these figures, the peak, 31 million, the average for the match was an absolutely phenomenal 29.85 million, almost 30 million, incredible that the average for a game that went to extra time and penalties was only! million lower than the peak. i can tell you, with my own eyes, i witnessed a couple of younger viewers falling asleep during extra time, i do not know if they counted the figures are not. == time, i do not know if they counted the figures are not.— the figures are not. -- counts in the. i the figures are not. -- counts in the- iwas— the figures are not. -- counts in the- i was if— the figures are not. -- counts in the. i was if we _ the figures are not. -- counts in the. i was if we count _ the figures are not. -- counts in the. i was if we count the -

the figures are not. -- counts in| the. i was if we count the people who were had their heads in the hands or peeping through their fingers during the penalty shoot—out. to pick up on those figures, it is incredible that... but not surprising given that we have gone to 18 months a pandemic, that we had this audience for a major sporting event like this, i don't brought along so many people who perhaps may traditionally not watch football.— watch football. absolutely, and en . land watch football. absolutely, and england game _ watch football. absolutely, and england game in _ watch football. absolutely, and england game in normal- watch football. absolutely, and england game in normal times| watch football. absolutely, and - england game in normal times would get 8-10,000,000, what england game in normal times would get 8—10,000,000, what you have seen clearly here is the excitement building throughout the tournament, the quarterfinal with ukraine, peaking at 20 million, semifinal with denmark, that peaked at 26 million, the final peak injust with denmark, that peaked at 26 million, the final peak in just a fraction below 31 million. all kinds of people who would not normally watch football were drawn into what's this. the figure for the 1966 world cup final is often bandied around as the highest viewing figure in british history, done a
12:40 pm
completely different way, tv viewing figures were worked out in an astonishingly different way, but the figure that is bandied around 419 six the six is 32 million, so it little behind that, but i think it's very hard to compare those two figures. to cuba now, where thousands of people have joined protests across the country, taking a stand against cuba's communist government. the president argues the united states is to blame, calling supporters to confront those demonstrating. tanya dendrinos reports. chanting for freedom.... all chant: libertad! ..not heard often in havana. cubans took to the streets in what the opposition has called the biggest anti—government protests in almost three decades. translation: state security beat me and my daughter. i they beat us because we were walking down the street. translation: we are here because of the repression i against the people. they are starving us to death. havana is collapsing. we have no house, we have nothing. but they have money to build
12:41 pm
hotels and they have us starving. all chant: libertad! demonstrations were also held in florida, where the cuban exile community showed its solidarity. cuba's president has blamed the united states for the unrest, laying down a threat for anti—government protesters. translation: we came here to show, togetheri with the revolutionaries of this town, that here, the street belongs to the revolutionaries. no worm or mercenary will claim the streets. and if they provoke us, without violating their constitutional rights, we will confront them. words spurring on supporters of the communist government, some taking it upon themselves to surround and detain those demonstrating... man: viva la revolucion! ..while others staged counter protests. translation: we are defending what we did 60 years ago. - that this is ours.
12:42 pm
that it has cost many lives. that capitalism will never come back here again. and that these mercenaries, paid by the empire, will never again take our streets. they will have to kill us all first. demonstrations of this kind are rare in cuba. but, as the country reports a record number of coronavirus infections, tensions are boiling over and cries for democracy are growing. tanya dendrinos, bbc news. ajordanian court has found two men guilty of plotting with a former crown prince to destabilise the kingdom. an ex—chief of the royal court, bassem awadullah, and a minor member of royal family have been sentenced to 15 years in prison. the prince allegedly involved in the plot, prince hamza, was not on trial. after the conspiracy emerged he re—affirmed his bbc world service's middle east analyst alanjohnston has more on the background to the case.
12:43 pm
for a long time, jordan has enjoyed a reputation for stability in what is a turbulent region, but that image took a real battering back in april when it was suddenly announced that a senior member of the royal family, prince hamza, had been conspiring allegedly, against the king, king abdullah, there was mediation between the two men and soon prince hamza reaffirmed his loyalty to the king. he has not been put on trial but two of his co—conspirators have, and exchange for the royal court, bassem awadullah, and a royal member —— a former member of the royal family, it has been behind closed doors, but reports have emerged that suggest that the prosecution alleged that the plotters sought to present prince hamza as an alternative to the king. they looked to capitalise

on popular discontent with issues like corruption and economic hardship, said to have discussed how prince hamza should best present himself on social media, and said to have hope they might eventually attract support from saudi arabia's powerful brown prince, —— crown prince, and the men deny the charges but sentenced to 15 years in prison. appalling racism directed at england players on social media, it has shown widespread condemnation. labour leader sir keir starmer has been speaking in the past few minutes, he's condemned the online racist abuse england players faced. iam afraid i am afraid the prime minister has failed the test of leadership because whatever he says today about racism, he had a simple choice at the beginning of this tournament in relation to the booing of those that
12:45 pm
were taking the knee, the players taking the knee, they medically abiding when taking the knee, the prime ministerfailed to abiding when taking the knee, the prime minister failed to call that out. —— they made it clear why they were taking. parts of the us are braced for more record—breaking temperatures, having already endured the hottest june on record. forecasters are warning that some places, including california and nevada, will remain dangerously hot, fuelling fears of even more wildfires. our north america correspondent, peter bowes, has this report. wildfires are burning with a ferocity that has rarely been seen before. in oregon, firefighters on the front line of this inferno to be pulled back for their own safety. after almost a week, it's spread to almost 600 square kilometres. in arizona, two firefighters died when their aircraft crashed while responding to another blaze. dozens are burning in california, including this enormous fire, spreading rapidly close to the border with nevada.

12:49 pm
around 100 people watched the final last night here at severn brothers brewery in salford. there are five big screens on the walls. but social distancing rules meant that they were still only operating at about 80% capacity. but the football has brought a welcome economic boost for many businesses. beer sales here have surged over the last couple of weeks. in fact, an estimated 7 million pints a day and last night alone. the hospitality sector, though, is now planning for the 19th ofjuly. that is when final restrictions are expected to be lifted. social distancing rules could be relaxed, wearing a facemask could become a personal choice, night clubs could reopen again, and we could all have a drink at the bar and start queueing instead of table service, so lots of changes ahead. we are expecting to hear more details on the timescale from downing street later on today. businesses, you know,
12:50 pm
lots of challenges, now looking to the weeks and months ahead. with me now is keith, the manager of the brewery, good morning, keith. a quick question about last night, how much has of a boost has the football been for sales? football has been incredible. ever since restrictions started to be lifted from april into may, the last fortnight, the last four weeks, actually, the football has been incredible for businesses. and what about next week onwards, what changes will you be making if rules are relaxed? hopefully, rules will be relaxed. it will be tricky for us, because, you know, we are a manufacturer as well as a retailer. here we make the beer and we have our bars as well. so it is going to be tricky because people are going to have to be cautious. so we will take it, we will listen to our customers and see what they want. and take it from there, really. and you are expanding as well. namely, a new taproom at manchester airport.
12:51 pm
so more people travelling and those rules relaxed will be really important for you as well. yeah, thankfully, we are getting news that air travel is going to get the go—ahead. people are getting vaccinated which is incredible. so that news is a huge boost to our business. but we will see, we will see how it goes. it is something we have been planning for the last 18 months as well. this should have happened last april. so we are really, really pleased that things are starting to, you know, we are looking forward to basically. some cautious optimism there. thank you. one of the things that may change is the work from home guidance could be lifted, businesses reliant on that commuter trade in city centres, they could have a lot to kind of look forward to going forward. and, jason, you have got a big garden, a big bit of open space, how important has that been over the last 18 months?
12:52 pm
it's been huge. it's been absolutely critical. i think without that and a very friendlyl landlord, we wouldn't be here. and the football really helped last night to get bums on seats? yes, definitely helped, definitely thirsty. - so we got from... this week was probably our best week of the entire year. we have talked a lot about staffing and the hospitality sector, recruiting at the moment, what challenges have you come across in terms of getting the chefs, the waitresses, the bartenders that you need? as for recruitment, we have not been able to get to the level— that we needed, especially with |the football, these busy shifts.| we have been pretty constantly running a| couple of people - short on every shift. which means the team have to work that bit harder to make it— work. and table service, presumably, means that you need more staff to do that as well. will you be keeping the table service option or will we be seeing more people queueing at the bar again like we used to? we are going to be pragmatic and as cautious as we possibly can be. - we will let some - people up to the bar, | but not quite back to what it usedj
12:53 pm
to be, but we will also be keeping table service open for those people i who are a little bit nervous or. might be vulnerable themselves. thank you very much. good luck for the future. and some businesses are allowing their staff a later start this morning so, you know, they'll get a lie—in, time to recover from the drama of last night. last night may have ended in gut-wrenching _ last night may have ended in. gut—wrenching disappointment last night may have ended in- gut—wrenching disappointment but there _ gut—wrenching disappointment but there was— gut—wrenching disappointment but there was plenty— gut—wrenching disappointment but there was plenty to _ gut—wrenching disappointment but there was plenty to cheer- gut—wrenching disappointment but there was plenty to cheer along i gut—wrenching disappointment buti there was plenty to cheer along the way, there was plenty to cheer along the way. as— there was plenty to cheer along the way. as natalie _ there was plenty to cheer along the way, as natalie perks _ there was plenty to cheer along the way, as natalie perks reports. - back where it all began. croatia, a fresh start. england's first opening match victory in euros history. scotland, back to reality. out fought, outsung. but then, czech mate, england through as group winners. into the knock outs, an old rival vanquished.
