fog in central and southern dense fog in central and southern areas. that will lift and break but hopefully it will lift into low cloud and then sent a break—up and allow the sunshine to come through. we have still got the rain in the far north—west but temperatures may peak on friday 21 degrees, 70 fahrenheit. the weather front meanders its way out of scotland and into the north of england for the weekend. there will be outbreaks of rain around and sunday looks likely to be the better day. that's all from the bbc news at six. so it's goodbye from me, and, on bbc one, we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are. hello and welcome to sportsday. i'm olly foster. everything is pointing towards the ashes tour going ahead, but how strong will the england team be?
6:31 pm
we'll look at the apparent reluctance of footballers to get a covid vaccination, and can they be forced to get the jab if they want to do theirjob? and after last nights defeat for arsenal, can chelsea do any better in the champions league? also coming up in the programme... ready to step up again, we'll head live to the californian desert ahead of raducanus first tournament since the us open. and rugby fans are always proud to show their colours, but the game is tackling a big problem for a small group of supporters who see the sport like this. good evening. so much has been thrown up
6:32 pm
in the air over the past 18 months because of the pandemic. competions scrapped, fixtures moved, major events pushed back by a year and for the past few weeks, the ashes tour has been in jeopardy. test cricket's fiercest rivalry is due to be renewed in december, but australia, in their efforts to keep on top of covid, have strict border and quarantine protocols in place. that has been the sticking point for england, but talks over the past 2a hours might have seen a breakthrough to getjoe root and his team on the plane. here's our sports correspondentjoe wilson. the issues surrounding the ashes, those complications and negotiations appear to be reaching a resolution. positive dialogue is not the same as getting on a plane, but ifjoe route seems happier with the arrangements, he clearly carries significant influence. in australia cannot take it's by the ashes are being promoted online, and there is a spirit of
6:33 pm
understanding can at least when it comes to the players, it appears. the need for families to be accommodated in australia is a big consideration.— accommodated in australia is a big consideration. they had played a lot of test cricket, _ consideration. they had played a lot of test cricket, so _ consideration. they had played a lot of test cricket, so i _ consideration. they had played a lot of test cricket, so i can _ consideration. they had played a lot of test cricket, so i can understand | of test cricket, so i can understand where they are coming from having family around, especially in a pandemic, guys are on the road for a lot longer than what to his use to go when you are adding on quarantine at the start and potentially on the end depending where you are coming or going. so i sympathise for them. that is difficult. but it is great to see them supporting that. the? to see them supporting that. they are not there _ to see them supporting that. they are not there yet. _ to see them supporting that. they are not there yet. if _ to see them supporting that. they are not there yet. if you _ to see them supporting that. they are not there yet. if you are an ashes family member travelling up for christmas, imagine doing quarantine in the state of victoria, somewhere like this. the prospect of a more relaxed isolation is likely to be at key concession. australia's captain has been clear the ashes will start as scheduled in december, england unofficially are yet to agree. but no one doubts the importance, after all,
6:34 pm
agree. but no one doubts the importance, afterall, if agree. but no one doubts the importance, after all, if the ashes stop, then in effect, so does the entire momentum for test cricket. joe wilson, bbc news. let's get more on this from bbc sports cricket reporter stephan shemilt stephan. from talks being fairly touch and go over the weekeknd, what's changed here. what has changed in the last 2a hours? what has changed in the last 24 hours? , , , .,, hours? they were presented those lans hours? they were presented those plans command — hours? they were presented those plans command that _ hours? they were presented those plans command that moved - hours? they were presented those plans command that moved them l hours? they were presented those i plans command that moved them to sand monday morning that the two or might even be endowed, but what we understand now is that england players met with cricket australia on tuesday morning. those talks were much more positive. that doesn't mean that it's over the line yet. england and wales cricket board will meet later this week to decide if the where we'll go ahead are not. a, the where we'll go ahead are not. a lot of noises from outside these talks. you know, some big figures in the game. lord botham questioned whether some of the players are hiding behind covid and need to just get on with it. clearly there is an issue of bubble
6:35 pm
fatigue and player welfare, those kind of comments can be very useful or helpful, because surely some players are still wavering, as joe root was still saying in his report — joe was saying in his report. they are still waiting for some kind of nod. if report. they are still waiting for some kind of nod.— report. they are still waiting for some kind of nod. if you think that over the past _ some kind of nod. if you think that over the past 18 _ some kind of nod. if you think that over the past 18 months _ some kind of nod. if you think that over the past 18 months being - some kind of nod. if you think that i over the past 18 months being binge cricket team have paid more than any other international cricket team, possibly more than any other international sports team, they have kept to international cricket on the road, both at home and abroad. england players have faced periods of quarantine, they had been in these very strict environments to make sure that covid—19 doesn't get inside. and really, they have almost had enough of that, when you think that in the uk, things have relaxed for them over the summer, to then look at somewhere like australia where they are thinking about what the restrictions may become even understand why they would be reluctant to travel, even though it is the ashes series, the pinnacle of an england test players career. you mentioned the _ an england test players career. you mentioned the last ecb announcement we had, and they said conditions
6:36 pm
that would enable the selection of a squad befitting a series of that significance. clearly they don't want to send a half—baked junior team over there. how strong can it be close neck we will probably have some withdrawals. it is be close neck we will probably have some withdrawals.— some withdrawals. it is a good question- _ some withdrawals. it is a good question. the _ some withdrawals. it is a good question. the feeling - some withdrawals. it is a good question. the feeling that - some withdrawals. it is a good question. the feeling that we | some withdrawals. it is a good - question. the feeling that we have at the moment is that the majority of england players that are available will want to travel. remember, there is a couple of key absentees are potential absentees already can a elbow injury, he will be out until the new year. stokes is on an indefinite break from the game to protect his mental wellbeing. we don't know if he will be in australia. so you are looking at the likes ofjoe root, those sorts of players being in australia to make sure that england had a chance. star; sure that england had a chance. stay with us, because _ sure that england had a chance. stay with us, because the ecb has certainly had a lot to deal with in recent weeks, some strong criticism of their decision to pull their men and women out of white ball to this month. citing security concerns and player welfare issues as we were
6:37 pm
talking about, bubble fatigue, the west indies legend was particularly strong this week. what's that signal sends to me is the same — what's that signal sends to me is the same as during our events. i will treat— the same as during our events. i will treat you, it doesn't matter what _ will treat you, it doesn't matter what you — will treat you, it doesn't matter what you think and i willjust do what _ what you think and i willjust do what i _ what you think and i willjust do what i want. four days in pakistan, i what i want. four days in pakistan, lam _ what i want. four days in pakistan, i am absolutely sure they would not have done _ i am absolutely sure they would not have done that they are. but you know _ have done that they are. but you know what? india is rich and poor. there _ know what? india is rich and poor. there is_ know what? india is rich and poor. there is a — know what? india is rich and poor. there is a lot _ know what? india is rich and poor. there is a lot there from michael holden, some powerful words. does that play at all and england's decision around the ashes — ashes series? in decision around the ashes - ashes series? ,., ._ , decision around the ashes - ashes series? , ~ . ., ., series? in some ways, michael holden is riuht. series? in some ways, michael holden is right- it's — series? in some ways, michael holden is right. it's much _ series? in some ways, michael holden is right. it's much easier _ series? in some ways, michael holden is right. it's much easier for _ series? in some ways, michael holden is right. it's much easier for them - is right. it's much easierfor them to pull out of this tour of pakistan thanit to pull out of this tour of pakistan than it is the ashes. — michael holding. a lot of money at stake command at this tour didn't go ahead now, when would it be played? it's
6:38 pm
difficult to see when that would be. stephen, many thanks indeed for the update. there are more matches in the women's champions league this evening, chelsea's first opponenet in the group stage is wolfsburg but chelsea boss emma hayes thinks her side are better for the experience and are ready to go again. it's the same for any loss you ever have. you know, you take from it what you need and then you discard the rest. i think you don't get preoccupied on the losses for long, like, i think the players, you have to ask them what they have what they have learned from it. from my perspective, i think we have gained another year's experience. let's get more on this from the bbc�*s football reporter emma sanders. it's so — they know each other so well — they know each other so well chelsea and wolfsburg and these should be the two that go
6:39 pm
through to the quarters? yeah, you would think so. there is event to send a group as well who i think will a bit of a problem that these two sides obviously not in the quarterfinals last season on chelsea's route to the final, and it was a competitive match, the chelsea did come out to 5— one aggregate winners. as you say, to plane which had a that victory will certainly give them confidence, but you would expect these two to be different runners in the group, certainly. we saw arsenal last night, by side the w sl so far in this season completely taken apart by barcelona, just as chelsea where in that final last season. are theyjust freakishly good at the moment, barcelona, because arsenal certainly got a bit of a schooling.— got a bit of a schooling. yeah, i mean bryce _ got a bit of a schooling. yeah, i mean bryce alone _ got a bit of a schooling. yeah, i mean bryce alone are _ got a bit of a schooling. yeah, i mean bryce alone are a - got a bit of a schooling. yeah, i - mean bryce alone are a tremendous side. they are packed full of world—class talent. it has a concern. anna hayes herself spoke a
6:40 pm
lot last season about the steps up between the top therapy and sides and arsenal were given a bit of a paystub of that last night. i think it's just that experience that the therapy insides have in the latter stages of the competition. there is a bit of a 3—way battle in the w sl between arsenal, chelsea and manchester city, which means that up until this season, there has only been two teams allowed to compete, and obviously now, there is that their qualification spot for the english side, which means that those three, hopefully, we'll get a bit more experience competing in the champions league command i think that will be really important. there is also a different style of play, and barcelona are used to dominating possession and suffocating deposition command they certainly get that last night, and that is something which arsenal are not used to. i usually do that themselves. so i think they will learn as that game went on, but there is certainly a bit of a gulf between the top english sides and the topsides at the moment. that's for sure i. shining the moment. that's for sure i. anna ha es the moment. that's for sure i. anna

hayes also — the moment. that's for sure i. anna hayes also spoke — the moment. that's for sure i. anna hayes also spoke about _ the moment. that's for sure i. anna hayes also spoke about what - the moment. that's for sure i. anna hayes also spoke about what she wants to see from this expanded european competition we are and be and r gorelick group stages. she just hopes that it will did lead to developing women's football across europe away from the traditional powerhouse nations.— europe away from the traditional powerhouse nations. yeah, i think that's kind — powerhouse nations. yeah, i think that's kind of _ powerhouse nations. yeah, i think that's kind of comes _ powerhouse nations. yeah, i think that's kind of comes back - powerhouse nations. yeah, i think that's kind of comes back to - powerhouse nations. yeah, i think that's kind of comes back to that l that's kind of comes back to that point before about the english sides having that golf, and i think one of theissues having that golf, and i think one of the issues as they haven't really been able to meet top european clubs too often, because until you have got until the semifinal stages of the competition you weren't meeting giants like ben. so the fact that these group stages are now part of these group stages are now part of the format, it means that clubs are going to be competing with the best sides in the group stages, and therefore they can build that experience and build towards reaching the latter stages, and i think it will be really helpful for the landscape of women's football as a whole. ., ~ the landscape of women's football as a whole. ., ,, i. ., the landscape of women's football as a whole. ., ~' ,, . . the landscape of women's football as a whole. ., ,, i. ., ., ., a whole. thank you, emma, and a standard stair _ a whole. thank you, emma, and a standard stair with _ a whole. thank you, emma, and a standard stair with the _ a whole. thank you, emma, and a standard stair with the bb - a whole. thank you, emma, and a standard stair with the bb sports i standard stair with the bb sports football reporting. let's stay with papa. remember last weekjurgen klopp appeared exasperated when asked
6:42 pm
about why so many premier league players have failed to get vaccinated against covid 19? — let's stay with football. the health secretary sajiv javed has appealed to them as role models to set the right example. austin halewood has been looking at this. austin, it's an issue that has caused plenty of headaches and friction between national associations and fifa, especially now we're in an international break with hundreds of players jetting around the globe. it's something that's been bubbling away for a few weeks now, olly, and as you say, with an international break it's more prevelant than other times with players travelling all over the world. now, premier league organisers have put some incentives in place to try and boost the vaccine uptake amongst players. they're debating whether to offer rewards to clubs with high vaccine uptake and they're also banning non vaccinated players from travelling to red list countries for international matches. now, the comments that olly mentioned there from sajid javid were referring to the reports that
6:43 pm
at least 5 england players haven't recieved both jabs. defender fikayo tomori didn't reveal whether he'd had the vaccine, but here's what he said this afternoon. for me personally, it'sjust kind of, for me personally, it'sjust kind of. you — for me personally, it'sjust kind of, you know, like a personal issue, so i of, you know, like a personal issue, so i am _ of, you know, like a personal issue, so i am like. — of, you know, like a personal issue, so i am like, you know what? i want to do— so i am like, you know what? i want to do what— so i am like, you know what? i want to do what i— so i am like, you know what? i want to do what i want to do, that is it. if to do what i want to do, that is it. if another— to do what i want to do, that is it. if another player wants to do that, if another player wants to do that, ithink— if another player wants to do that, ilhink and — if another player wants to do that, i think and as i said commits a personal— i think and as i said commits a personal issue for every single individual, notjust athletes, but also people that are not athletes. 50, also people that are not athletes. so. yeah. — also people that are not athletes. so, yeah, for me, it'sjust a personal— so, yeah, for me, it'sjust a personal issue that i am just kind of, personal issue that i am just kind of. like. — personal issue that i am just kind of. like. you— personal issue that i am just kind of, like, you know, ifi personal issue that i am just kind of, like, you know, if i want to do it, of, like, you know, if i want to do it. if— of, like, you know, if i want to do it. if i_ of, like, you know, if i want to do it. if i don't— of, like, you know, if i want to do it, if i don't want to do it, that's what _ it, if i don't want to do it, that's what it— it, if i don't want to do it, that's what it is — so what are the figures? well, as of last week, less than half of the players at most premier league clubs have been double vaccinated. and its notjust in the premier league, in the efl, as of september, only 49% of their players have had two jabs and that was up from only 18 per cent in august.
6:44 pm
and these figures, of course, are in stark contrast to the uptake of vaccinations from the general public. in the uk, almost 45 million people have had two doses that's 82.5% of over 16s. now, of course, it's a personal choice whether people get the vaccine and that's the reason why west brom and republic of ireland forward callum robinson, who's had covid twice, has decided not to get the jab. just happened, i just just happened, ijust haven't done it. i just happened, ijust haven't done it ilhink. — just happened, ijust haven't done it. ithink, as just happened, ijust haven't done it. i think, as i said, it is your personal— it. i think, as i said, it is your personal choice, and my choice at this moment in time, i haven't been vaccinated — this moment in time, i haven't been vaccinated. there are managers and people _ vaccinated. there are managers and people that — vaccinated. there are managers and people that will want you to do it, which _ people that will want you to do it, which ism — people that will want you to do it, which is... which is right in their way— which is... which is right in their way of— which is... which is right in their way of what _ which is... which is right in their way of what they think, but everyone has their— way of what they think, but everyone has their choice and what they want to do _ has their choice and what they want to do i_ has their choice and what they want to do. i wouldn't force it on people to do. i wouldn't force it on people to do— to do. i wouldn't force it on people to do it _ to do. iwouldn't force it on people to do it or— to do. i wouldn't force it on people to do it or not, it is your choice,
6:45 pm
it is— to do it or not, it is your choice, it is your— to do it or not, it is your choice, it is your body. callum robinson there who says not taking the vaccine is his personal choice, and that's not the only reason. in some cases the lack of uptake has been because of misinformation and online conspiracy theories. but also it's because the number of positive cases has been low amongst footballers. only 4 cases were found last week, among the 2927 players, and staff, at top flight clubs. and that number has been in single figures each week since the end of august. now, the premier league are hoping the insentives like traveling to red list countries and reawrds for clubs will be enough. but if not, they could be forced to follow a much tougher approach, like basketball�*s nba in the us. unvaccinated players over there are tested more, they're kept away from the rest of the team where possible and they're also banned from what they call "higher risk settings" like restaurants and entertainment venues, so there's a much tougher approach
6:46 pm
across the pond, olly. that's just an example of the kind of things the buck could bring in if they wanted to.— they wanted to. watch this space, austin, they wanted to. watch this space, austin. many _ they wanted to. watch this space, austin, many thanks _ they wanted to. watch this space, austin, many thanks indeed. - a quick look at some other stories. david brooks and ben davies are both out of wale's world cup qualifiers with the czech republic and estonia because of illness they are already without captain gareth bale. and, cyclist elinor barker has revealed that she was pregnant while winning team pursuit silver in tokyo. barker posted this picture with her partner casper saying they were "so excited to start the next part of our lives together". the dutch writer is the new leader of the women's tour of britain. she won the time trial in stage three and leads by over a minute. there's plenty of british interest in the californian desert as one of the most prestigious events outside the grand slams gets
6:47 pm
underway in the next 15 minutes or so. 0ur tennis correspondent russell fuller is at indian wells, a lot of attention on emma, our tennis correspondent is there for us and told me that she is in no rush to find a full—time coach and will just be looking to see out the year with plenty of time uncorked. she didn't play much in the first forfive months of she didn't play much in the first for five months of this year or barely at all because of the pandemic and also because she was studying for her a—levels. so i think to schedule a run of tournaments at the end of the year and if she plays well in india as well, she probably want have enough time for all of these, but she could be playing in moscow, romania and austria before the end of the season to train for the increase that ranking, get use to life as a us open champion on the court, as you are the target one other players suddenly want to be you and they have been well, perhaps have a trial, she was talking about, but the coach at the end of the season.
6:48 pm
no rush, though, she said, it's important to get the right person, a few names have been helping her out here in the desert.— here in the desert. there is plenty of british interest _ here in the desert. there is plenty of british interest and _ here in the desert. there is plenty of british interest and heather- of british interest and heather watson is on fairly shortly. yes. watson is on fairly shortly. yes, the first british _ watson is on fairly shortly. yes, the first british prayer— watson is on fairly shortly. yes, the first british prayer and - watson is on fairly shortly. 1a: the first british prayer and action against sloan stevens, and other us open champion, they won the title in 2017. watson, she is not seated, the top 32 player does not get a buy in the first round, andy murray will be in the same position, he will play in the same position, he will play in france. the other two british singles players in the drawer are dan evans and cameron norrie. they are having such good seasons, they are having such good seasons, they are seated and they will have buys through to the second round. you mentioned _ through to the second round. you mentioned and _ through to the second round. you mentioned and be merry there, just great to see him stringing back—to—back tournaments together, getting the odd win and he is loving life. that is pretty much all he wants to be doing at the moment. i wants to be doing at the moment. i think since wimbledon in terms of
6:49 pm
its that is, things could not have gone better because at the championships when he lost in the third round, he said that the first time publicly, i'm putting in so much work and if my body keeps letting me down, and this is as far as i can get, is it all worthwhile? and that was very much in the aftermath of defeat. i don't think it changed his long—term philosophy, that he loves that, he believes he can be truly competitive again. he has had a couple of months of fitness where he has been able to train hard, pay regular tournaments. but he hasn't had so far are the winds over top ten players. that is the next piece of the jigsaw. russell fuller, many thanks indeed. attend a special from nine o'clock tonight on five life. many thanks. staying in roughly the same pa rt part of the world, the build—up continues to the big fight in las vegas on saturday. the british wbc heavyweight champion tyson fury against the american deontay wilder. the third fight between the two, and there's no love lost. when we was first going to fight and i thought he was a decent man, a
6:50 pm
family man, doing it for his kids and all of that, but now i know he is a real piece of garbage, a piece of rubbish, and i'm going to knock him out on saturday night, and i cannot wait to give him — get in that ring and get him a good one, for sure. that ring and get him a good one, forsure. i might take that ring and get him a good one, for sure. i might take it slow with him, i might take it slow and punish them. you see me beat him up and then i might take it slow and punish him. you see me beat him up and punish him. you see me beat him up and then knock him out. there there are many things that i had visualised — there are many things that i had visualised and that the first fight, along _ visualised and that the first fight, along with the second, you know, and ididn't— along with the second, you know, and i didn't execute the game plan, but this time _ i didn't execute the game plan, but this time around, itjust i didn't execute the game plan, but this time around, it just a different— this time around, it just a different feeling, you know? all the way around. all the surrounding around — way around. all the surrounding around me, the atmosphere, you know what i'm _ around me, the atmosphere, you know what i'm saying because notjust the energy— what i'm saying because notjust the energy as _ what i'm saying because notjust the energy as a — what i'm saying because notjust the energy as a whole, you know? and i am looking — energy as a whole, you know? and i am looking forward to putting on a great _ am looking forward to putting on a great performance, october the ninth _ we are just three days away, let's cross live to vegas now and speak to our reporter ade adedoyin. both fighters doing their bit to sell the fight, but this is fury vs wilder part three — is there still that appetite and interest out there?
6:51 pm
yes, i think there is, because these are still two of the biggest names and world boxing. it's been a lot of bad blood between the pair since that second fight in february here in las vegas. they had made lots of accusations as to why they lost the fight, he accused tyson theory of wearing loaded gloves. he said exactly energy in his legs, he sacked his trainer the former olympic champion and world champion who said that he threw the towel into early according to deontay wilder. so a lot of bad blood between the pair. it will be interesting to see how they approach the press conference which will be in a couple of hours' time. the last and looking to get press conference which was to publicise this bout, deontay wilder wouldn't engage with the media. he answered one question from the host, but his headphones on and left it to his new trainer to deal with the price. as for a press conference which was to publicise this bout, deontay wilder wouldn't engage with the media. he answered one question from the host, but his
6:52 pm
headphones on and left it to his new trainer to deal with the price. as far tyson will poke and prod him today to get a bit of reaction. because they have been so inactive to make it really look at form or anything like that. and who is the smart money should wilder prevail, from all the belts being in british hands a few weeks ago, what would that do to the heavyweight division? you know, ithink you know, i think that is the interesting part about all of that, because when they step in the ring on saturday night, it will be over a year and a half since that last fight. had they had the trilogy fights and after that february 2020 bout, you would favour tyson theory, but in the time that has gone by, he has faced some difficult issues, he tested positive for covid injuly, his daughter was born premature and was and i see you for a little bit. has had has been elsewhere. when i spoke to the sports betting area at the mgm when i got here last night, they said that tyson is that favoured to win simply because of the way that he performed in the two fights paper and get the bacon argument that he went both. he went down twice, but a lot of people still felt he wanted on planes. the second fight with a masterclass. at
6:53 pm
the thing about deontay wilder if he is such a hard punch or that you cannot write him off, and as the week starts to build, he will start to find reasons as to why he could potentially win this fight, and that's what makes it so intriguing. tyson fury will go and i'm sure, but deontay wilder has that one punch knockout power, that equaliser, and it only takes one punch, you know, to turn a heavyweight fight around. just quickly, this could be a typicalfew just quickly, this could be a typical few weeks just quickly, this could be a typicalfew weeks for just quickly, this could be a typical few weeks for the division, couldn't take? because should deontay wilder prevail, but the belts being in british hands a few weeks ago, what would that do if deontay wilder wins the heavyweight division? what direction does he take then? the division? what direction does he take then?— take then? the landscape has chanced, take then? the landscape has changed, hasn't _ take then? the landscape has changed, hasn't taken? - take then? the landscape has changed, hasn't taken? sicki changed, hasn't taken? sick statements ago we were talking anthonyjoshua and tyson fury having this unification bout. they are going to have a rematch for the preliminaries. but if deontay wilder were to win this fight, there is no rematch, that's it. so it will certainly open things up spectacularly and who knows what it will end up being deontay wilder and you sick fighting for that
6:54 pm
