11:37 pm
olympic sportsman but he is still a rarity. the fact that he is so open and is so confident, i think that will inspire many people, especially those who are struggling. irate will inspire many people, especially those who are struggling. we talked about an hour— those who are struggling. we talked about an hour ago _ those who are struggling. we talked about an hour ago about _ those who are struggling. we talked about an hour ago about his - those who are struggling. we talked about an hour ago about his press i about an hour ago about his press conference given on the world stage when there are so many countries of course who are trying to limit if not band homosexual rights. dozens of countries — not band homosexual rights. dozens of countries and _ not band homosexual rights. dozens of countries and indeed _ not band homosexual rights. dozens of countries and indeed tom - not band homosexual rights. dozens of countries and indeed tom daley l of countries and indeed tom daley pointed _ of countries and indeed tom daley pointed that out. and the commonwealth games, there are 45 countries _ commonwealth games, there are 45 countries in — commonwealth games, there are 45 countries in the commonwealth that still hold _ countries in the commonwealth that still hold homosexuality or the practice — still hold homosexuality or the practice of it to be illegal. what was most — practice of it to be illegal. what was most powerful about that press conference is he said those really moving _ conference is he said those really moving words sitting between athletes from china and russia, which _ athletes from china and russia, which are — athletes from china and russia, which are both countries where you are not— which are both countries where you are not allowed by law to be homosexual. it is absolutely unthinkable to us in this country, but what — unthinkable to us in this country, but what a — unthinkable to us in this country, but what a great role model to take the opportunity when the whole world
11:38 pm
media is— the opportunity when the whole world media is focusing on you and give such— media is focusing on you and give such an _ media is focusing on you and give such an uplifting message. he said to young _ such an uplifting message. he said to young people struggling with their sexual identity you are not alone, _ their sexual identity you are not alone, you _ their sexual identity you are not alone, you can achieve anything, and what a _ alone, you can achieve anything, and what a brilliant message to send the young _ what a brilliant message to send the young people. many people at the moment— young people. many people at the moment are having a terrible time, particularly — moment are having a terrible time, particularly younger people with education, exams, perhaps having been_ education, exams, perhaps having been cooped up with their parents for too _ been cooped up with their parents for too long and talking about my own children here. and to hear that message _ own children here. and to hear that message from a winner, somebody who has achieved _ message from a winner, somebody who has achieved so much, is incredibly uplifting _ has achieved so much, is incredibly uliftinu. ,, ., ., ., , ., uplifting. should we have a shout out for matty _ uplifting. should we have a shout out for matty lee? _ uplifting. should we have a shout out for matty lee? this _ uplifting. should we have a shout out for matty lee? this is - uplifting. should we have a shout out for matty lee? this is his - uplifting. should we have a shout| out for matty lee? this is his first olympics and he has got a gold so he will not have to have four attempts at it. . , will not have to have four attempts at it. ., , ., at it. certainly well done, him. one ofthe at it. certainly well done, him. one of the seats— at it. certainly well done, him. one of the seats were _ at it. certainly well done, him. one of the seats were obviously - at it. certainly well done, him. one of the seats were obviously we - at it. certainly well done, him. one| of the seats were obviously we have our stars that we all talk about and we all know about someone like tom daley, but also there are several other people who have won gold and they should all be acknowledged. it
11:39 pm
is no easy feat winning a gold medal and certainly he deserves the credit as well. �* ., ., ., ., ., , as well. although adamant peaty throu~h as well. although adamant peaty throu . h to as well. although adamant peaty through to be — as well. although adamant peaty through to be able _ as well. although adamant peaty through to be able to _ as well. although adamant peaty through to be able to do - as well. although adamant peaty through to be able to do it - as well. although adamant peaty through to be able to do it time i as well. although adamant peaty i through to be able to do it time and time again. listen on now to the times and the sixth consecutive dropping coronavirus cases puzzles scientists. it's not clear. warnings from the who who i think described freedom date as it was done by number ten as one of the most irresponsible things to be doing. and there is no scientific evidence at the moment to quite know what the consequences of this will be. i think the huge caveat to these very encouraging figures and i have to say i _ encouraging figures and i have to say i was — encouraging figures and i have to say i was light and when i read it, the caveat — say i was light and when i read it, the caveat is it normally takes two weeks _ the caveat is it normally takes two weeks for — the caveat is it normally takes two weeks for changes in our behaviour to fiiter— weeks for changes in our behaviour to filter through an impact on the results _ to filter through an impact on the results. the so call and i agree with— results. the so call and i agree with the — results. the so call and i agree with the who dreadful phrase of freedom — with the who dreadful phrase of freedom date only happened this time
11:40 pm
last week, _ freedom date only happened this time last week, so unfortunately it may will he _ last week, so unfortunately it may will be another week before those changes— will be another week before those changes in our behaviour are desired to go— changes in our behaviour are desired to go to _ changes in our behaviour are desired to go to the — changes in our behaviour are desired to go to the cob in a nightclub, those — to go to the cob in a nightclub, those changes are reflected in the figures _ those changes are reflected in the figures and then we might see a bit of a spike — figures and then we might see a bit of a spike. because people and i totally— of a spike. because people and i totally understand this has been locked _ totally understand this has been locked up for so long, they are desperate _ locked up for so long, they are desperate to go out and see friends, remembering going to the pub with a friend _ remembering going to the pub with a friend for— remembering going to the pub with a friend for a _ remembering going to the pub with a friend for a pie and being able to do that— friend for a pie and being able to do that is— friend for a pie and being able to do that is a — friend for a pie and being able to do that is a wonderful thing. but it may well— do that is a wonderful thing. but it may well hasten a rise in infections and that— may well hasten a rise in infections and that is— may well hasten a rise in infections and that is why the scientists and in the _ and that is why the scientists and in the government are urging caution at the _ in the government are urging caution at the moment. we are not out of the woods— at the moment. we are not out of the woods vet— at the moment. we are not out of the woods vet as — at the moment. we are not out of the woods yet as a prime minister said. and the _ woods yet as a prime minister said. and the times is quoting an epidemiologist who sits on one of the government had was panels saying that he wonders whether schools are breaking up and other contact patterns changing, i think the end of the euro football tournament was part of that, so he also said that
11:41 pm
one factor might be the people may be less inclined to get tested if they have summer holidays booked. but you have to get tested, don't you, i think for most for holidays may be just you, i think for most for holidays may bejust for you, i think for most for holidays may be just for uk holidays. that you, i think for most for holidays may be just for uk holidays. at the moment there _ may be just for uk holidays. at the moment there is _ may be just for uk holidays. at the moment there is a _ may be just for uk holidays. at the moment there is a lot _ may be just for uk holidays. at the moment there is a lot of _ may be just for uk holidays. at the l moment there is a lot of speculation as to why the numbers are falling slightly, and you mentioned at schools and can be the fact that we are not testing in schools any more. could be people who maybe are being a bit cheeky and not testing when... can i pick you up if he will listen very carefully so you said numbers falling slightly but i think they have fallen quite significantly over the past week?— the past week? yeah, so it's been ruite a the past week? yeah, so it's been quite a stark— the past week? yeah, so it's been quite a stark decrease _ the past week? yeah, so it's been quite a stark decrease but - the past week? yeah, so it's been quite a stark decrease but i i quite a stark decrease but i think definitely echoing what jane said, the it is encouraging but i think it's important not to get too carried away. we have still got for example i think around 3 million 18—30 —year—olds who were not vaccinated. so many who are not vaccinated. so many who are not vaccinated and still have winter comer in the corners we don't know
11:42 pm
what will happen with the flu and we don't know how there is good to be a new vary around the corner, so i think that it is encouraging but i think that it is encouraging but i think is important that we don't get too excited by it.— too excited by it. let's go on to the exoress- — too excited by it. let's go on to the express. they _ too excited by it. let's go on to the express. they have - too excited by it. let's go on to the express. they have got i too excited by it. let's go on to the express. they have got a l too excited by it. let's go on to i the express. they have got a law and or splash but it is one of their own investigations. chief council rages to my police are the nation's punch back. and he actually means this. and i have to say without blowing our own _ and i have to say without blowing our own trumpet too much to my papers — our own trumpet too much to my papers do _ our own trumpet too much to my papers do this sort of thing really well _ papers do this sort of thing really well they— papers do this sort of thing really well. they have the time and the resources — well. they have the time and the resources to throw at an investigation like this and this is really— investigation like this and this is really quite shocking. the express has come — really quite shocking. the express has come up with these really alarming _ has come up with these really alarming figures. they are saying 20,000 — alarming figures. they are saying 20,000 police officers have been attacked — 20,000 police officers have been attacked since the first lock down last march. 50 officers a day, i repeat, — last march. 50 officers a day, i repeat, a — last march. 50 officers a day, i repeat, a day have been victims of assault— repeat, a day have been victims of assault and — repeat, a day have been victims of assault and other figures to make your eyes— assault and other figures to make your eyes pop out. i find it a
11:43 pm
horate — your eyes pop out. i find it a horate to _ your eyes pop out. i find it a borate to hear that anyone is wanting _ borate to hear that anyone is wanting to attack please officers but those levels, it is quite extraordinary. so i positively express— extraordinary. so i positively express for mounting this campaign. yes, express for mounting this campaign. yes. there _ express for mounting this campaign. yes, there may be an element of politics— yes, there may be an element of politics involved because i police federation is involved in a big row with the _ federation is involved in a big row with the government about pay and that's— with the government about pay and that's going to get quite vociferous in the _ that's going to get quite vociferous in the moment, but the basic facts make _ in the moment, but the basic facts make your— in the moment, but the basic facts make your hair stand on end and i applaud— make your hair stand on end and i applaud the — make your hair stand on end and i applaud the express for highlighting this to _ applaud the express for highlighting this to us _ applaud the express for highlighting this to us. ,, ., ., ., this to us. should we move on because the — this to us. should we move on because the telegraph - this to us. should we move on because the telegraph has i this to us. should we move on| because the telegraph has got this to us. should we move on l because the telegraph has got a this to us. should we move on i because the telegraph has got a law and order story as well. free burglars to wear 24 hour tax. that is if they have been released before the end of their sentence. so basically they will be monitored i think 19 police forces are doing it. this is all part of the government's beating crime plan. the you think this is a good idea to actually sort
11:44 pm
of monitor the fee but when you look at the recidivism rates in terms of crime? i at the recidivism rates in terms of crime? ~' , ., , , crime? i think the stats definitely in the telegraph _ crime? i think the stats definitely in the telegraph show— crime? i think the stats definitely in the telegraph show that i crime? i think the stats definitely| in the telegraph show that around half of those convicted of burglary or theft and want to reoffend. i think it's been a space of the year. so clearly our current policy when it comes to dealing with criminals is not really effective at the moment camas was a man does need to be changed in the government is recognising that. i do think there is always a risk of policies like this that you end up stigmatizing people, creating and donating people effectively. but i did that the government has been smart to only roll it out in 19 forces and trial it and see actually how effective this measure is. i do hope somewhere in the new crime policies that are being introduced to the government tomorrow that there is also a focus on the causes of crime and what is leading people to commit burglaries and also looking at giving people emotional or financial support when they do eventually leaves you forcibly think that needs to be part

11:51 pm
before going on to expertly handle all the nerves and pressure in their final two routines. in a nail—biting finale, the british pair watched on as the chinese duo made theirfinal dive. daley and lee then broke into wild celebrations when it became clear they'd ended china's golden grip on the event dating back to 2000. i've been diving now for 20 years, and this is my fourth olympic games and lots of people probably would have counted me out at this olympics being the older person but i'm in the best shape physically and mentally. the moment stood behind that rostum over there and about to be announced as olympic champions and then to hear the national anthem play, i was gone, i couldn't even sing. i was halfway singing and i was blubbering. i just... yeah, i can't believe it. the gold rush started in the early hours of this morning with adam peaty becoming the first british swimmer to defend their olympic title. he won the 100—metres breastroke once again,
11:52 pm
and the world record—holder really blew away the competition in a perfectly executed swim, six tenths clear of the field. i haven't felt this good since 2016. itjust means the world to me. i didn't have the... i thought i had the best preparation of my life but then the morning finals, it goes out the window. that's really what it takes to be an athlete, not who's the best all year round, it's the best on the day, best person on the day who is the most adaptable. the third gold came from an unexpected source, tom pidcock winning the men's cross country mountain biking. the ineos grenadiers riderfinished a clear 20 seconds ahead the rest of the field. the win today came just two months after pidcock broke his collarbone in a collision with a car while out training. it hasn't been a dream that long, but i have worked so hard for it and it has been the end of the path for such a long time. yeah, i can't imagine how it

would feel to build up four years for this event because it was bloody stressful enough with less than a year! it is unbelievable, really. well, there were more medals on day three for team gb in taekwondo, lauren williams taking silver, while britain's alex yee cemented his position as the new star of british triathlon with a silver medal. so, this is how the medals table looks after day three in tokyo. hosts japan have made a great start and sit top of the shop with eight golds, 13 medals in total. the usa second with seven golds, and then team gb up into fifth after a fantastic day today. well, there were more medals on day three for team gb in taekwondo, well, gold for a 13—year—old in the skateboarding is one of the reasons the hosts top that table. momiji nishiya winning the women's street event to make it two from two

in the skateboarding events so far for the hosts, one of the new sports at these games. the average age on the podium wasjust 14, with japan taking bronze, too. coming up, one of the best celebrations of the games so far after a thrilling race in the women's 400—metres freestyle final. australia's ariarne titmus beat the defending champion and five—time olympic gold medallist katie ledecky to win herfirst—ever gold medal. titmus swam the best time of her career to clinch victory. just look what it means! this is dean boxall, titmus' coach, going absolutely nuts. and now he's gone viral for this celebration following titmus's thrilling 400—metres freestyle gold. onto the tennis now, and disappointment for british doubles pairjamie murray and neal skupski. they were knocked out in the second round in tokyo, losing 6—3, 6—4 to japan's kei nishikori and ben mclachlan. novak djokovic is through after beating germany's jan—lennard struff in straight sets. the world number one is bidding for a first olympic gold medal after winning bronze in beijing 13 years ago. japan's naomi osaka cruised into the third round of the women's

singles with a win that only took 65 minutes over viktorija golubich. the second seed is favourite to win gold after ashleigh barty�*s exit yesterday. away from the olympics, there was a thrilling finish in the hundred as the trent rockets made it two wins from two, but only just. they beat the northern superchargers, who batted first. rashid khan and marchant de lange with three wickets each as the superchargers, with ben stokes in their ranks, were bowled out for 132. but despite that, the rockets struggled, losing wickets regularly. they couldn't get rid of alex hales, though. he thumped david willey for a towering six to seal the win with six balls to spare, sending a large trent bridge crowd wild. in the same fixture in the women's tournament, it was the northern superchargers who came out on top. they set the rockets 150 to win, and the rockets were always playing catch—up, falling 28 runs short, meaning the superchargers go to the top of the table with two wins from two. a bit of football transfer news to end with, and manchester united look set to continue their summer spending by completing

the signing of real madrid defender raphael varane. an initialfee of around £34 million pounds has been agreed, potentially rising to 42 million with add—ons. varane won four champions league titles with real along with the world cup with france in 2018. united secured the signing of jadon sancho last week. and that's all the sport for now. bye— bye. hello. the forecast for the next few days is looking quite turbulent and at times very wet indeed, with some torrential, heavy, thundery downpours, albeit with some sunny spells in between. now, let's take a look at the recent satellite picture because you can see all of these areas of cloud just rotating around, circulating on top of the uk, and this pattern continues with low pressure firmly in charge. close to the centre of the low, particularly, we are going to see some really intense downpours and thunderstorms popping up during tuesday. so, some cloud and some showery rain from the word go
11:57 pm
across western and southern parts, a bit more sunshine further east. but through the day, the showers will pop up quite widely, and some of them will be very heavy and thundery, especially across parts of north wales, the north midlands, northern england and scotland. and with very light winds, those showers will be very slow—moving, so in one or two places, we could see an awful lot of rain, giving rise to localised flash flooding. temperatures not doing too badly in the sunshine between the showers, as high as 23—24 degrees. some of those big showers and storms will rumble on through tuesday evening into the early hours of wednesday, and we start to see some more persistent rain developing across parts of scotland. so, low pressure still very much with us for the middle part of the week. in the centre of the low, an area of rainfall is going to become very slow—moving across scotland, so that could well cause some flooding issues. see, the rain willjust continue here throughout the day. for northern ireland, england and wales, it's sunshine and showers again, some of the showers heavy and thundery.
11:58 pm
some really squally, gusty winds, but the winds generally will be a bit stronger on wednesday. so, at least that means the showers, where they do turn up, should move through a little more quickly. temperatures will be lower on wednesday, though. quite cool for the time of year actually, 14—20 degrees. as we move out of wednesday into thursday, the rain across scotland will only slowly pivot and start to move southwards. so, before this rain finishes, some places across scotland could see 100 millimetres or more, hence the potential for flooding. some of that rain drifting southwards into northern ireland and northern england through the day. some sunshine further south, chance of one or two showers, but we could well see another area of wet and blustery weather pushing into the far south west later in the day. and temperature still a little disappointing, 17—21 degrees.
