10:52 pm
are finally underway. fewer than a thousand dignitaries watched in the olympic stadium, while only 22 british athletes represented the 375—strong squad. but yet the ceremony was still a celebration, albeit a poingnant one — joe lynskey was watching. as the flame was lit, the sights felt the same, but the sound was empty. this was naomi osaka, tennis�* grand slam champion, marking the start of a games in the silence. at this olympics, the backdrop is inescapable. this opening ceremony was different. it was solemn. let us all take moment to remember all those friends and loved ones who are no longer with us, in particular because of the covid—i9 pandemic. there was reflection, but the theme, too, was moving forward. music. and a tribute to how athletes have had to adapt
10:53 pm
to 12 months of lockdown. at the front of it, japan's arisa tsubata, a boxer and a nurse who missed out on the games when her qualifier was cancelled. japan's flag, too, was brought on by key workers, waved on in the stands by around 1000 dignitaries. the build—up has been fraught, but japan still wants to showjoy. and just like in 2012, there was tradition. these figures are daiku, traditional carpenters who sing as they chisel. tokyo were last host for the games in 1964, when trees were planted. the wood's being used for these olympic rings. and so, more than 200 nations converged on a city in a state of emergency. all in masks, the british team for the night was trimmed down. just 22 of them marched, led by moe sbihi and hannah mills, a rower and a sailor. this games is a year late.
10:54 pm
the ioc�*s called it the light at the end of a tunnel. the pandemic forced us apart. this separation made this tunnel so dark. but today, wherever in the world you may be, we are united in sharing this moment together. over four hours, there was fun and, too, the sense of an olympics as a tv event. it's showtime. but tokyo's showpiece has come with the world still in a pandemic. for the next 16 days, they want sport to be the focus. joe lynskey, bbc news. chair of uk sport and five time olympic medallist dame katherine grainger told me the ceremony did what it needed to given the circumstances around the games. before it started we knew it was had to be dramatically different. there was never again be the crowds were used to. not the sins of hundreds of
10:55 pm
thousands of people in the stands in the athletes marching in. but it felt appropriate. as we were saying there, without moving, it felt quite emotional, and it still felt like a celebration just something olympians and the japanese people are proud of. it was always get a feel a little bit different today. we have to talk about the pandemic. his affect, we delayed by a year. of course is a subject matter of the crowds on there. but once the sport starts in almost as a spectator readjust what you're watching you won't see the crowds in the background, you won't the noises. i've got to ask you about helen glover. going for a third olympic medal. we've seen her compete brilliantly, when the gold in london, in rio as well. there she is winning the gold medal in rio with scanning. what about her chances tomorrow, in that he thought to having come back after having three children? what can we expect from helen? in a way she doesn't know what to expect either, does she? tia.
10:56 pm
what to expect either, does she? no. it's an what to expect either, does she? tip. it's an absolutely incredible story. lots of people have said, just getting and she's made history. we never had a mother committed to the rowing team and compete in the olympic games before. she's already done when no one else is done by just starting tomorrow. but we know helen well, she'll want more than that. she does want to just rozier was the road to the best possible. she's got great company with polly swan. i think they have a lot of potential there in front of them. speaking to me earlier about helen glover who goes ahead in the women's pair in the heat at about 130 this morning. team gb's women's football team take on the hosts japan tomorrow. after victory in their opening group game against chile they know another win would see them through to the knockout stage. everyone here is so talented and convinced very much it that the team is amazing to think how far we can go. obviously we will keep improving, keep progressing and
10:57 pm
hopefully we will reach the final and win gold in the end. but it's little moments i imagine is can help us there was a lot of good play in the game yesterday and we are hoping to build on that and make it even better. to build on that and make it even better. we've seen some incredible scoring at the evian championship in france. south korea'sjeongeun lee 6 birdied her last two holes to record the lowest round ever at a men's or women's major. this chip at 8 was one of ten birdies that helped her to a round of 61, she leads the field by 3 shots at the half—way stage. cricket�*s new competition — the hundred had a double heaeder at at edgbaston today. england's zak crawley opened for london spirit against birmingham phoenix and made 64, the highest score so farfor the format, in his side's total of 144. but the home side went past that with three balls to spare, adma milne hitting the winning runs. before that the spirit women won their contest.
10:58 pm
danielle gibson's boundary took her side past the phoenix total of 128 with four balls to spare. and of course all the olympic action kicking off overnight follow that 1—over on the bbc. 1—over and that's all the sport for now. hello friday brought us his seventh consecutive day with some seeing temperatures of a 30 degrees. as we head to the weekend things get a drink cooler and fresher and they will be some heavy and thundery downpours for some particularly the further south you are. we've already seen some of that heavy rain pushing and overnight. during saturday morning we could see some heavy showers moving their way northward across the southern half of england and wales. some thunderstorms mixed in. if you do have a catch one of the heavy shows they will be hit or miss later in the day. by the north lots of warm, sunny weather once again. we have more clout looking through the aisles, easton coasted into saturday evening for the heavy showers and thunderstorms in the cell. most of the places i can
10:59 pm
