6:31 pm
for most of us it is a cracking date with sunny spells, a little bit fresher on the actual coast itself, a little bit in there, norwich around 19 but up towards the it is more likely mid 20s in the south. low 20s for scotland and northern ireland. then the high pressure nosing in and putting the weather front in the direction of iceland rather than us so that means sunny skies for many parts of the uk, probably best of the sunshine around southern areas of scotland, the lake district, northern ireland, easily hitting the mid 20s a number of areas and guess what, with the high pressure sitting right on top of us, for the end of the week and into the weekend, the temperatures go do one thing, they will rise into the high 20s, so some very warm weather on the way if that is what you like. thank you. that is all from us. time for the news where you are. goodbye.

at the tour de france, with five stages to go. hello there, and a very warm welcome to the programme. the prime minister, borisjohnson, says the uk still has a very good case to still host a world cup in 2030 despite the ugly scenes of violence on sunday as fans broke into wembley without tickets ahead of the euro 2020 final between england and italy. european football bosses are launching a disciplinary investigation into the disorder. joe lynsky reports. wembley was the hope 8 euros games. it was a glimpse for the country. an entire tournament in the uk and ireland, that is the hope for 2030.

when the world cup grows to 48 teams, the government says it wants to bring the british isles together but on sunday there was confrontation. before the final, wembley was breached. the scenes outside and in the ground are under scrutiny. uefa have issued fines on four counts, including the booth for the italian anthem them about the f8 thinks what still matters is the whole psalm. i thinks what still matters is the whole psalm.— thinks what still matters is the whole psalm. ~ , ., , , whole psalm. i think when you step back and look— whole psalm. i think when you step back and look at _ whole psalm. i think when you step back and look at the _ whole psalm. i think when you step back and look at the matches - whole psalm. i think when you step back and look at the matches we i back and look at the matches we staged it wembley and the positive impact through the country and the buzz is created, we have had had so much praise that i'm sure that stands us in good stead for hosting future tournaments.— future tournaments. before 2030, there are two _ future tournaments. before 2030, there are two world _ future tournaments. before 2030, there are two world cups - future tournaments. before 2030, there are two world cups and - future tournaments. before 2030, there are two world cups and a . future tournaments. before 2030, i there are two world cups and a drawn out process. unexpanded tournament requires more venue. portugal and spain so they can host it together, while to the east is a joint bid from romania, greece, bulgaria and

6:37 pm
tentacle bid and the best commercial bid, a passion forfootball, that's not enough. the country has seen before can be delicate and applicable. 0n the pitch at the euros, it went wrong at the very end. now the uk and ireland hope a world cup bid does not fall at the start. joe linsky, bbc news. well, the former sports minister richard caborn was involved in england's failed world cup bid for the 2018 world cup, and hejoins me now. great to see you and thank you for joining us. how damaging will the behavour of fans on sunday be to any 2030 bid? it is damaging, there is no doubt, but i think we can actually amend that very quickly. it depends on leadership that the government shows now and indeed the fa. you go back to 2000 when i was sports minister, we had real problems then and we had to deal with hooliganism as we saw on sunday night, but we dealt with it by bringing the banning orders
6:38 pm
and if you recall, we very quickly i think started turning the sport round from being the pariahs of europe. 0urfans to becoming some of the most respected, and i think that actually that leadership will be shown in 2001— 02 in rooting out some of these who were there really just to cause problems and trouble, you can do that. and i'm hoping doubt the government will make sure it takes the right actions with the fa and bringing in the banning orders again and bring them in pretty strictly. i know we were criticised at the time for being to your county and but they actually worked and i think now we have got to show that it is 0—tolerance now and i think that could well bring your reputation back where we will be seen as contenders for the 2030 world cup. but action at the political and sporting level needs to be taken. also i think questions need to be asked about why it happened on sunday. to allow
6:39 pm
ticketless fans, many of whom would have had too much to drink, actually getting near wembley stadium is questionable. i think the intelligence should have been out there making sure that did not happen, just clearly was woeful. find happen, 'ust clearly was woeful. and how happen, just clearly was woeful. and how much of — happen, just clearly was woeful. and how much of a pr exercise is needed now in terms of operationally going forward for the fa and the government? i forward for the fa and the government?— forward for the fa and the government? ~ , ., government? i think they need to take decisive _ government? i think they need to take decisive action _ government? i think they need to take decisive action as _ government? i think they need to take decisive action as i _ government? i think they need to take decisive action as i say. if i l take decisive action as i say. if i go back and look at big sporting events i was involved in as minister, take the olympics, the olympics was a difficult from a 0lympics was a difficult from a security point of view because of terrorism and in fact we had a great accolade said about the olympics to be the safest place in the world was actually at the olympic stadium. which was pleased to receive. but you have to take those actions to make sure that you are doing the prevention and just not the cure. and that to me on sunday night i
6:40 pm
think was missing. now we have done it before. we have turned football around and took out the hooligan element and we can do that again. thank you very much indeed, richard, the former sports minister. a mural of england striker marcus rashford, a tireless campaigner against child food poverty, was covered in notes of support earlier in manchester. the artwork was vandalised in the wake of the euro final defeat. it comes after defender tyrone mings called out the home secretary's motives in her support for england's black players who received racist abuse after the loss on penalties to italy. nesta mcgregor has more. the government defended her saying she fully understands the issues having been the victim of appalling racist abuse herself. nesta mcgregor has more. politicians, footballers — professions where a career can be defined whether you go to the right or the left. and rashford has missed! two professions now at the centre of a racism dispute. i know that the whole house willjoin me in condemning
6:41 pm
the sickening racist abuse directed last night at our heroic england football team on social media. soon after, england defender tyrone mings, who featured at euro 2020, refused the support of the home secretary. on twitter he responded, claiming she had failed to back the squad's the anti—racism message in taking a knee. he accused the minister of stoking the fire ahead of the tournament by calling taking the knee gesture politics, and now she was pretending to be disgusted. ms patel has yet to comment further. although taking a knee has been contentious, for some the argument that politics and sport should remain separate seems contradictory. the people that run this country are coming out and saying... i |..booing a gesture that the playersj are taking, they're not condemning ithat, so how can you not condemnl
6:42 pm
that, but then come out and say it's about the social media? sort your own house out first, and then you can start - talking about other people and other organisations. . you can't say one thing and not do the other. i it just screams hypocrisy. social media companies continue to say they are doing everything they can to combat online abuse, although the sheer numbers using it globally makes it a tough task. the government meanwhile says it will start fining social media platforms if they fail to act. the home secretary is committed to tackling racism. she is taking action as home secretary to tackle extremist groups. that is what she is doing. the prime minister is clear that the government will also legislate to take action against those platforms that enable this sort of filth to be peddled online. england's current squad has been described as the most diverse ever.
6:43 pm
players socially aware, amplified voices for those in the stands. captain harry kane saying those who abuse its members are not welcome at games. to lose a game of football is tough enough _ to lose a game of football is tough enough and to lose a final when you are so— enough and to lose a final when you are so close — enough and to lose a final when you are so close is heartbreaking. and now some — are so close is heartbreaking. and now some of them will be dealing with the _ now some of them will be dealing with the aftermath of being racially abused _ with the aftermath of being racially abused. this affects the whole squad — abused. this affects the whole squad. black or white. this mural of marcus rashford in south manchester was defaced hours after his penalty miss on sunday, but since then hundreds of people have turned up to post good luck messages of thanks and support. last night, the manchester united striker tweeted he can apologise for missing a spot kick, but won't apologise for the colour of his skin. the mural is currently being restored, but restoring the confidence of the young england players affected by this could take much longer. nesta mcgregor, bbc news.
6:44 pm
let's take a look at some of the day's other sports news now. england are chasing 330 to win the third and final one—day match against pakistan. is that currently posted 39 and the edgbaston captain ben stokes is currently batting at 23 not out. england are at i38—3. they are up to heaven zero in the series. roger federer has pulled out of the tokyo 0lympics. the rugby league world cup will take place in england this autumn after all competing nations signed an agreement. the tournament had been in doubt over issues with covid regulations and quarantine rules for those travelling from australia and new zealand. roger federer has pulled out of the tokyo 0lympics. the 20—time grand slam—winner said he experienced a setback with a knee injury and that he was "greatly disappointed", but hopes to return to the tour later this summer.
6:45 pm
not long to go as ten days left for the olympic games. the former england striker eni aluko feels social media companies must be accountable to government in their efforts to stamp out online abuse. she earlier told me that the gains in 2012 were a watershed moment for women's football and also as a commentator after the black players received abuse for their euro final loss. the experience was like changing honestly. i live in a world where football rules and is donated by football rules and is donated by football but the olympics are bigger than football. and for all of us involved we saw how important sports is to the rest of the world and how effective it is in making people happy and inspiring the next generation for each sport. so just looking up and walking into the lift and seeing the other athletes and one day i walked into the lift and
