10:00 am
you're watching bbc news, broadcasting in the uk and around the world. i'm lucy hockings live from tokyo. ecuador�*s richard carapaz wins the gold in the men's olympic cycling road race, making it the country's second ever gold at a summer olympics. a golden start for china — its team picks up two gold medals in shooting and weightlifting. there are still lots of medals up for grabs on the first full day of action, including in fencing and judo. i'll have all the latest. i'm ben boulos. in other news, from the uk and around the world... tackling britain's "pingdemic" — hundreds more covid testing sites are to be set up across england to ensure essential workers can avoid self—isolation and keep working. president biden warns that the us
10:01 am
is facing a "pandemic of the unvaccinated" — as the delta variant of coronavirus spreads. and pandemic — what pandemic? a major music festival gets underway in the north of england. a warm welcome to tokyo, where the first gold medals of the olympics have been awarded. 11 medals are up for grabs on the first full day of action, including in fencing, judo and weightlifting. but perhaps the most eagerly awaited event of the day was the men's road cycling race. ecuador�*s richard carapaz has just won that, with a thrilling race
10:02 am
on the outskirts of tokyo. carapaz started out strong, with a a0 second lead. great britain's adam yates missed out on medal, while geraint thomas was out after earlier crash. japanese spectators have defied coronavirus restrictions to watch the race. it's one of the few events during which they can see the competitors in action. china has gone straight to the top of the medals table winning two of today's events. 21—year—old yang qian took the first gold of the games in the women's 10—metre rifle final. yang says she learnt to perform under pressure, with coaches purposely creating a nerve—wracking atmosphere. but a sad end forjapanese gymnast, kohei uchimura, known as the "king". he failed to qualify for a gymnastics apparatus final. in 2016, he became the first man in 44 years to win back—to—back
10:03 am
olympic all—around golds in rio. but his failure to qualify has ended his olympic career. a moment of sadness for fans of his. let's get a sense of that incredible race. i'm joined by triple olympic medallist and former double world champion rob hayles. it was a remarkable race. what did you make of it? it it was a remarkable race. what did you make of it?— you make of it? it was incredible, it was absolutely _ you make of it? it was incredible, it was absolutely brutal. - you make of it? it was incredible, | it was absolutely brutal. conditions really did start to play a part. in the final, there were ten separate nations crossing the line. it wasn't so much about tactics and team tactics, it was just about who had the legs left. in terms of going to paper, there were eight out of the top ten who are all favourites, riders listed to be up there. in that terms, it went to form. but for richard carapaz, just a third in the
10:04 am
tour de france, finishing last week. he took the gold, and only the second gold for ecuador. and i think only the third olympic medal in history for ecuador. so i think richard carapaz will be going back to a party in a week or two. i strongly suspect that he will be an absolute hero instantly in his home country. how unusual is it any race like this? we were watching it over the six hours, but it wasn't until the six hours, but it wasn't until the final few kilometres that you really got a sense that richard carapaz was going to take it stop is that unusual? i carapaz was going to take it stop is that unusual?— that unusual? i think that the way that unusual? i think that the way that the race _ that unusual? i think that the way that the race panned _ that unusual? i think that the way that the race panned out, - that unusual? i think that the way that the race panned out, there . that unusual? i think that the way i that the race panned out, there were a couple of launch pad later on. the writer who ended up finishing silver was the favourite. the issue for him was the favourite. the issue for him was that if the writers get up to richard carapaz in the final few stages, it would have been very hard
10:05 am
for anyone to beat him. he was the winner on the shop silly is a last sunday. he also won a mountain stage and an individual time trial. for richard carapaz, he played absolutely perfect. that pairing went on. for richard carapaz, it was all about who had anything left. but he riders behind, it was about what was left in the tank, pretty much. tell us about the conditions. it is extraordinarily hot here, of course, and very humid. extraordinarily hot here, of course, and very humid-— and very humid. very difficult for the riders- _ and very humid. very difficult for the riders. extremely— and very humid. very difficult for the riders. extremely difficult. i and very humid. very difficult for. the riders. extremely difficult. for the riders. extremely difficult. for the writers on the road race, it has been difficult for them to prepare for these olympics because while they have been doing their dayjob,
10:06 am
which is the tour de france and all the other races since february, whereas a lot of other riders for the gb track team for instance, they have been able to use heat chambers and get their body prepared. whereas these writers this morning weren't really able to do that. it was very difficult. it is unsurprising that an ecuadorian was able to come to the fore at the end of the race. it was absolutely brutal. there was a little bit of rain earlier on. they are used to the heat, but this is obviously very humid. there were a lot of ice packs going out early on, drinking and fuelling and keeping hydration, one of the key things. the italian rider, one of the favourites. there will be some very sore bodies tonight.— sore bodies tonight. there will be. the commentators _ sore bodies tonight. there will be. the commentators kept _ sore bodies tonight. there will be. the commentators kept saying - sore bodies tonight. there will be. i the commentators kept saying things like, "who's got anything left in the tank?" that was the sense you
10:07 am
got final stages of the race. thank you for your insights. at home, they call richard carapaz at the locomotion. he certainly proved that today. let us give you some idea of how it feels here in tokyo the day after the opening ceremony. mariko oi is in the shopping district of ginzo for us. what were people's thoughts about the opening ceremony?— what were people's thoughts about the opening ceremony? indeed, lucy. we were just — the opening ceremony? indeed, lucy. we were just glued _ the opening ceremony? indeed, lucy. we were just glued to _ the opening ceremony? indeed, lucy. we were just glued to the _ the opening ceremony? indeed, lucy. we were just glued to the television l we were just glued to the television inside _ we were just glued to the television inside arrochar. the first japanese athlete _ inside arrochar. the first japanese athlete to — inside arrochar. the first japanese athlete to be winning a medal, it's 'ust athlete to be winning a medal, it's just a _ athlete to be winning a medal, it's just a matter of gold or silver. we will find _ just a matter of gold or silver. we will find out injust about just a matter of gold or silver. we will find out in just about ten just a matter of gold or silver. we will find out injust about ten or 15 minutes. we are also watching for the men's _ 15 minutes. we are also watching for the men's 60 kilograms. as we mentioned earlier, we are also

10:11 am
come to see the rings were gathered around the stadium. i think they were saying, "well, why can't we be let in, if we are being taken precautions and wearing masks and socially distanced, and there are other sporting events going on around the world that are seeing thousands of people packed in stadiums, why cannot we come in to?" if people actually left tokyo to try to escape it?— to escape it? yes, it seems there was this escape — to escape it? yes, it seems there was this escape on _ to escape it? yes, it seems there was this escape on friday, - to escape it? yes, it seems there was this escape on friday, where | was this escape on friday, where there was traffic jams was this escape on friday, where there was trafficjams getting out of tokyo. and of course, the cases are still over 1000 every day, which is high for tokyo. the severe cases, people requiring ventilators, is rising. every day there are new cases coming out of the olympic village, which of course stokes anxiety. a relatively small number compared to the number of people that have come into the country and have been tested. it seems that there is more spread within the japanese public than within the overseas visitors who have come in
10:12 am
for the olympics. can overseas visitors who have come in for the olympics-— overseas visitors who have come in for the olympics. can you explain to us why that — for the olympics. can you explain to us why that infection _ for the olympics. can you explain to us why that infection rate _ for the olympics. can you explain to us why that infection rate is - for the olympics. can you explain to us why that infection rate is so - us why that infection rate is so concerning? we are in such a large city, rates and other capital cities around the world are much higher. what are the concerns about the health system?— what are the concerns about the health system? well, part of it is that there are _ health system? well, part of it is that there are very _ health system? well, part of it is that there are very few _ health system? well, part of it is that there are very few hospitals| that there are very few hospitals that there are very few hospitals that accept covid patients, and then if they require ventilation or other kind of severe assistance where they will need a lot of skilled nursing and medical staff to attend to them, there is a concern that very quickly that capacity will fill up. so even in this very large city, there are only a handful of hospitals that can really attend to the victims of covid, and so the worry is that if all of a sudden there is a spike in cases, that the hospitals will be overrun, the staff won't be able to handle it. but i also think there is something else going on, which is that people are angry and fed up. they have been told for many months that they have to hang on and
10:13 am
sacrifice, and there has been a big hit to the business community. and so this notion that a country with borders that have been closed for so long have suddenly been flung open to all these people to participate in an international sporting event, i'll one that can inspire people and give them something to focus on other than this year and they have pandemic, i think there are a lot of people that are upset about it, because they feel that the priorities of the government are skewed. ,., ., ., , ., ., , skewed. good to get your thoughts, thank ou skewed. good to get your thoughts, thank you very _ skewed. good to get your thoughts, thank you very much _ skewed. good to get your thoughts, thank you very much for _ skewed. good to get your thoughts, thank you very much for enjoying i skewed. good to get your thoughts, | thank you very much for enjoying us. the tokyo bureau chief for the new york times. plenty more to come from here in tokyo. for now, it's back to ben in the studio. we certainly will, lucy. more workers in england will now be able to avoid self—isolation
10:14 am
if they're contacted by nhs test and trace or "pinged" by the covid app. a government scheme which had just been for supermarket depots and food manufacturers, is now being extended to include front line emergency services and some transport workers. the scheme was due to start yesterday, but has been delayed until at least monday. our political correspondent helen catt is here. helen, this scheme is different to the first one that we heard about? yes, so what is happening here is a couple of different schemes that the government is using to try to address this issue of staff shortages caused by the sheer number of people reading told to self—isolate, there's been a record number in the week, especially with the app. so the government has put forward these schemes to try to address that. as you said, there was one on monday that was a very narrow scheme for 16 sectors and critical industries like energy and water. under that, industries like energy and water. underthat, companies industries like energy and water. under that, companies have to specifically ask for it named
10:15 am
exemptions for named individuals for it to be exempt from isolation. this second scheme, brought in for a food distribution after concerns about the food supply team, we saw those pictures earlier in the week of supermarket shelves looking pretty empty, this was announced on wednesday and would allow some places like distributors that warehouses to have a rethink on site testing facilities so that workers there, if any were to get pinged, they could get daily tests instead of having to self—isolate, and that scheme is the one that has been extended last night to cover emergency services, so front line police, fire services, border stuff for imports, and some people who work in critical rail infrastructure. we are expecting that... in fact, we had expected the food distribution want to start on friday, but that isn't up and running. the earliest that will happen is monday. but running. the earliest that will happen is monday.— running. the earliest that will happen is monday. but there is ressure happen is monday. but there is pressure on — happen is monday. but there is pressure on the _ happen is monday. but there is pressure on the government i happen is monday. but there is pressure on the government to happen is monday. but there is i pressure on the government to bring this scheme forward? to pressure on the government to bring this scheme forward?— this scheme forward? to bring the date forward- _
10:16 am
this scheme forward? to bring the date forward. the _ this scheme forward? to bring the date forward. the committee i this scheme forward? to bring the date forward. the committee said | date forward. the committee said that after that date, people who are fully vaccinated won't have too isolate, even if they are pinged. what we're hearing from some industry bodies, from the london from ministers likejeremy hunt, is because on the government to say, you can't wait until then, you need to bring it forward a week earlier. we heard calls this morning from the local government association, which represents most councils in england, to say they think they should be looked at now, this idea of bringing forward the date from the 16th. the government has been pretty insistent it is not going to do that. it says that self isolation is a key tool in fighting the pandemic. i that self isolation is a key tool in fighting the pandemic. i suppose there is a balance _ fighting the pandemic. i suppose there is a balance to _ fighting the pandemic. i suppose there is a balance to be - fighting the pandemic. i suppose there is a balance to be had, i fighting the pandemic. i suppose there is a balance to be had, as. there is a balance to be had, as they are expecting more and more people to return to work places, between keeping the company to the macro country functioning and making sure the people if they are going into the workplace feel safe doing so around others who may have been

10:18 am
each day, while gatwick is operating more than 260 flights today — compared to just 15 at the height of lockdown. travel companies say new rules allowing fully vaccinated travellers to visit amber—list countries, without quarantining on their return, have provided a huge boost. president biden has warned that the united states is facing a "pandemic of the unvaccinated" — as the delta variant of coronavirus spreads rapidly in areas where the uptake ofjabs has been low. speaking in virginia, mr biden praised the governor of alabama — kay ivey — who said it was time to start blaming the unvaccinated for the rise in infections. here's our north america correspondent david willis. with less than 34% of its population fully vaccinated, alabama is the least vaccinated state in this country. and thursday's remarks by its republican governor were well received by the white house. folks supposed to have common sense. but it's time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks,
10:19 am
not the regular folks because it's the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down. in a speech, president biden echoed governor kay ivey�*s assertion that the recent rise in covid—19 cases was the fault of those who have refused to get vaccinated. what we have now is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. here's the point. first of all, the covid—19 deaths and hospitalisations today are among the unvaccinated people. and i know, i know this has gotten a bit politicised but i hope it is starting to change. a growing number of republicans and conservative leaders have called on people to get vaccinated in recent days following a nearly three—fold increase in coronavirus cases in the last two weeks. most of them involving people who have not been vaccinated. 56% of americans, including children, have now received at least one jab, but a new poll suggests that the majority of those who are yet to be vaccinated still say they are unlikely to do so. david willis, bbc news, los angeles.
10:20 am
police in manchester say they're extremely concerned about the welfare of a missing 11—year—old girl from bolton. fatuma kadir was seen boarding a train from manchester piccadilly on thursday evening, and was last spotted leaving london euston station in the early hours of friday morning. greater manchester police are trying to trace a man and woman, who travelled on the same train as her from bolton to manchester and are believed to have been worried about her. you're watching bbc news. one of the largest music festivals in europe to be staged since the start of the pandemic is taking place this weekend in sheffield in the north of england. around 40,000 people are expected to attend every day over the weekend. masks and social distancing will not be required but to get into the grounds, concert goers will need to prove their covid—19 status. corinna wheatley explains
10:21 am
how that's being done. it's a scene we used to take for granted during the festival season. now it seems a little unfamiliar. around 40,000 people are attending tramlines each day this weekend, and once they're in, social distancing and masks are not required. there are measures in place around the site to try and keep people safe, like this one—way system, for example. but the main thing that's changed this year is how you get in. if you're not double vaccinated, you have to do a lateral flow test, i did mine last night, for example, and then log the results on the government website, and then use the nhs app to bring up your covid pass and show this along with the results of a health questionnaire at the entry points. it's extra hoops to jump through, but most people we spoke to say it's worth it. i'm quite happy to go along with everything — if it means getting back into gigs and festivals and everything, i'lljust go along with whatever the organisers want to do. it just feels good to be actually doing something after two years of not doing anything.
10:22 am
it just feels great to actually get out. can't live in this lockdown forever and ever, so i'm happy for it, i and i'm chuffed to bits| the performers, at last they're getting the revenue what they well deserve. i the entry requirements mean a bit of extra organisation forfestival—goers, but a huge amount of extra work for festival organisers. they had less than eight weeks from being giving the greenlight to go ahead, to opening the gates, but it all comes at a time of rising covid rates. across the site, we've looked at more space, so we've moved the second stage into its own arena. we've got better queuing, we've got more toilets. we've got to balance what we're doing, the positives against the risk. you know, we're hugely important culturally, supportive of local businesses, and we're trying to do it in a way that minimises the risk for everyone. tramlines is part of the government's events research programme which also included things like wimbledon and a concert in liverpool's sefton park. while there are strict
10:23 am
guidelines to follow, the covid risk at these events can't be eliminated entirely. if people came to the event with infection then it's obviously a very strong possibility of them transmitting it in that setting. from a public health point of view, i am concerned. we know mass gathering events are high risk for the spread of infection. i guess, if people adhere to some simple measures, they can probably keep the risk manageable. it won't be zero risk but there will be a degree of risk there. for many people here, in the crowd and on the stage, it is a joyful return. and it's certainly a milestone — organisers say it's the biggest festival in europe since the reopening. the outcome of this and other events will be watched closely. the american baseball team — the cleveland indians — have announced they are changing their name. from the end of this season, they will be known as the cleveland guardians. they're the latest us sports franchise to change their name — after criticism some found it offensive. tim allman has the story.
10:24 am
tucson, arizona, a world i champion gets into the sun. the cleveland indians begin spring i training under manager lou boudreau. for more than a century, they have been known as the cleveland indians. an illustrious, and every so often successful, baseball team. but in recent years, that name has become increasingly controversial — so it's out with the old, in with the new. we are excited to usher in the next era of professional baseball in cleveland, as the cleveland guardians — adding to our team's deep and rich history in our community. after being known, amongst other things, as the rustlers, the bluebirds, and the naps, they were first called the indians back in 1915. but the nickname and others like it is seen by many as racially insensitive, particularly to native americans.
10:25 am
we ask ourselves, why are we are the only race that are subjected to that? so if this were truly an honour, then why wouldn't other races be subjected to it? it is racially offensive, and we don't want to be the only group that's singled out for such an honour. not everybody�*s in favour — former president donald trump issued a statement saying... and it's notjust baseball. last year, washington's american football team retired the name redskins, and will announce a new name in 2022. the relationship between sport and politics can be difficult, but the owner of the team that will soon no longer be known as the cleveland indians says that, while the transition will be difficult for many, he hopes to unite the community. tim allman, bbc news.

you can see at the top of the screen there. and then close up pictures as they pick themselves up. basically, he couldn't avoid going down after a team—mate lost control of his front wheel. he did get back on, but here he is later on in the race. he eventually had to pull out after that crash. it has been a similar story for thomas. it was this team—mate who broke away, and he held on to cross the line with the rivals out of sight. it is ecuador�*s first gold medal since 1996. only their second gold medal ever. you might have heard of him, he is known as the locomotive, and he was the third in the tour de france. britten's adam yates, he led a sprint to the finish right at the end. it seemed he might get the bronze, but he said clap in those legs unsurprisingly kicked in, and so it was in the end belgium who won
