post—traumatic stress disorder. it is mental as much as physicalfortitude. but bear in mind she had done this crossing with a chest infection. i had very favourable conditions. i am not exhausted and worn out, which i often am after swimming the channel, which is nice. i really got to enjoy soaking in every minute because i was not getting bashed around by the channel, so i've got energy, i feel great and yeah, it's really amazing. 44 channel crossings — that is way ahead, incidentally, of what any man has ever managed. joe wilson, bbc news. time for a look at the weather. here's susan powell. what an act to follow! the weather today across the uk has been quite benign. if you have seen the sun, you have done rather well. for many of us, the skies were like this and this i'm just trying all the time to break through but the cloud then coming back together into rather
6:31 pm
solid layers and giving a bit of a great impression. and that is what things will look like for many of us tomorrow because we keep this same area of high pressure we have had today and it locks the weather in place. but coming into the far north of scotland, there will be a weather front that shifts things on a little here. this evening, it is a fine story, plenty of cloud out there, the wind relatively light. temperatures hovering in the higher range of single figures, perhaps double figures in a few spots. and for early on thursday, in comes that weather front to northern scotland and that will shake things up here because it will bring heavy rain but also some very strong winds, gales for a time and the wetter weather and the strong winds will sink further south is the day progresses, probably the rain into the central belt of scotland for the evening rush—hour. elsewhere, a fine story but one where we will see a lot of cloud around. some bright spells but certainly not wall—to—wall sunshine. for that, you will have to wait until friday and you will have to put up with some colder air coming in behind this weather front, the
6:32 pm
one from scotland, working southwards across the uk and through friday, as the front eventually clear to the south of the uk, we will all move back into clearer skies and there will be a lot of sunshine but there will also be a northerly breeze, particularly across the eastern side of the uk so it will look brighter but through the day, as the front comes down, temperatures in some areas will go down by the time we get into the afternoon so perhaps mid—teens at best the highs on friday. with clear skies overnight friday, look out for a patchy frost. it is after autumn, and the weather will start to the commander again as the weekend goes on. that is all from us, goodbye. hello and welcome to sportsday — i'mjohn watson. after the racially aggravated scenes
6:33 pm
at wembley, calls grow for hungary to be banned from international football. back in the premier league, can king claudio — work his magic again, this time at the other end of the table? and why exeter fans are being asked to leave the headdresses at home against wasps this weekend. also coming up in the programme... bringing it home — the excitement among team england how the excitement�*s building for team england as they prepare to compete at home at next year's commonwealths. good eveneing. fighting between a section of hungarian supporters and police at wembley last night has been condemnded by fifa. disorder broke out when police arrested a fan for for a racially
6:34 pm
aggravated public order offence not long after kick off in england's world cup qualifier. it's led to calls from anti racsim groups for hungary to be banned from international football — responding to the bbc today the hungarian fa said we reject all forms of discrimination but that they were in contact with the english fa. alex howell reports. before kick—off, the tone was set. and not long after that it turned violent with hungary fans clashing with police in the stands of the national stadium. i think the togetherness that people see is there and that doesn't change based on banners, it doesn't change based on people's views, it doesn't change based on people opposing what we stand for. so it makes no difference to me. the met police released a statement last night saying officers went into the away end to arrest a spectator because of racially aggravated comments towards a steward and as a result of that the violence we saw
6:35 pm
in the away end broke out. i think governing bodies could quite easily ban hungary for a period of time, ask them to show improvements, and then allow them in on the basis of satisfying whatever criteria they lay down. and it is an unexpected turn of events! - on the pitch, england had to come from behind to salvage a draw and despite a disappointing performance, it's the images in the stands that people are talking about. they came a few months after the euros final here between england and italy where ticketless supporters forced their way into the stadium. and last night, in another match in england's group, there was more trouble. objects were thrown onto the pitch as albania played poland and the game had to be temporarily stopped. this morning the world governing body fifa said its position remains firm and resolute in rejecting any form of violence as well as any form of discrimination or abuse.
6:36 pm
what steps the authorities eventually take will be decided in the coming weeks but with places at qatar 2022 still up for grabs, any sanctions could have a big impact on qualification. alex howell, bbc news. joining me this evening is former footballer anton ferdinand. anton good evening. your thoughts firstly on what you saw play out last night? it on what you saw play out last night? wasn't good t surprise it wasn't good to see, was a surprise that it happened. especially after washing three not watching england play hungry a few months ago a mom was surprised to see what happened at wembley. it was hard to watch the altercation between the police and the fans and stuff but... as i said, it wasn't a surprise to me which is the worrying thing. not an isolated incident. should hungary be banned
6:37 pm
from international football. strongly, i feel strongly about that. i keep hearing and the piece you playing that a number of things fever had calmed out and condemned it and their messages the same that they are 100% it. ok well, as football and as society if we based our opinion on what we think of what's happening on the words and that's fine but we can't base it on the words any more it's about action. if uefa and fifa can get involved when the euro super league was coming about and then if you're involved in that you will no longer play in these competition there why can't you do that with raising discrimination? itjust doesn't make sense. if you really do condemn it and you really wanted out of the game the way that you say that you do because you have zero tolerance, by the way, then stop talking about
6:38 pm
it and actually have some action. for me the punishment should be they should be nowhere near a tournament they should be involved in national football until they sort themselves out. it illustates the lengths still to go in addressing racsim. and as someone who yourself has been through your own experiences. how do you view the amount of work still do? there is a lot of work to do but this is why i can sit here proudly say that i am supporting bt united campaign. for me personally i want to fight against all races hate whether it's to fight against all races hate whether its online or real life. and through education which is what it's bringing to the fore is educational programme that people can get involved in and seek for educational purposes and resources to get to a place where they understand. some people are never actually going to feel what it feels like to be racially abused but they
6:39 pm
can understand and by having understanding that is education. i urge people to go to vts hope united campaign and see videos that we've done previously to show education is key. done previously to show education is ke . , . ., done previously to show education is ke . , ., ., , ., ., , done previously to show education is key. great to get your thoughts on sorts key. great to get your thoughts on sports days _ key. great to get your thoughts on sports days today. _ many thanks for speaking with us. five years on from his incredible premier league title triumph with leicester — and an ill fated spell with fulham — the man who led the 5000—1 outsiders to that historic victory — claudio ranieri is back once again in the premier league. we are in champions league, we are in cheek to add champions league, man! come on! he in cheek to add champions league, man! come on!— in cheek to add champions league, man! come on! he such a character, isn't he? i'm — man! come on! he such a character, isn't he? i'm with _ man! come on! he such a character, isn't he? i'm with you _ man! come on! he such a character, isn't he? i'm with you next - man! come on! he such a character, isn't he? i'm with you next season i isn't he? i'm with you next season when something _

6:42 pm
semifinals and their manager says it's notjust the volume of games, but the nature of them that's so demanding. i think it's hard for english teams, knowing that every weekend the intensity of our games are really, really tough. there's no denying leagues across europe have wonderful teams in them, but it's the speed and the intensity that a wsl game is played at that takes a lot out of players. but, you know, this is what happens in the men's game and we all have to adjust to that in our game. a set of her side second match in the women's league tonight. stay with us on sports day we have plenty more to bring you this evening. a quick look at some of the stories this evening. the wales and bournemouth midfielder david brooks has revealed he's been diagnosed with cancer.the 24—year—old's suffering from stage two hodgkin lymphoma but said that "the prognosis is positive" brooks

6:47 pm
world is changing and we are all getting a bit more hopefully considerate and a bit of a small world and seeing that there are other people who have a right to their own culture and identity, it's their own culture and identity, it's the only way it's going. we think it's a brilliant opportunity for the club. first of all let's just get rid of this distraction. it's such a great club, it's such a great set up, so much home—grown talent they're the kind of rags to riches story, it's an absolute fairy tale. fairy tale. it's 150 story, it's an absolute fairy tale. fairy tale. it's150 of the year of the club this year they won the partnership and that championship that year 2020. itjust partnership and that championship that year 2020. it just feels like this is a great opportunity to look forward to the future and continue to build the club and inspire the entire region with a great rugby thatis entire region with a great rugby that is on show there and to celebrate its own rich history and culture. i celebrate its own rich history and culture. ., ., ~' celebrate its own rich history and culture. ., ., ~ ., culture. i wonder with the work that ou're culture. i wonder with the work that you're doing. _ culture. i wonder with the work that you're doing. how— culture. i wonder with the work that you're doing, how is _ culture. i wonder with the work that you're doing, how is this _ culture. i wonder with the work that you're doing, how is this going -
6:48 pm
culture. i wonder with the work that| you're doing, how is this going down on the terraces in the stadium on a match day, how much of the exeter support would you say are on board with what you're trying to do? i think it shifted to. i think it's understandable that it something first people like no, no, no this is like rubbish. but i think the more people take the time to listen to indigenous people, look at the research, hearabout indigenous people, look at the research, hear about the impacts and the damage that stereotypes of all kinds even those that we think are positive do. they produce, dehumanise, one—dimensional, they don't really represent the hundreds of different nations that go into first nations and indigenous people. it's like trying to have a local demand logo or summary of the european with even more different variations. i think what people take the time to understand and listen to indigenous people the only peoples views we should be listening to it they understand it. i think the challenge comes when obviously the club didn't do this to be hard to you, to be offensive it's meant to
6:49 pm
be positive. but i think it's a decent human nature thing that once we are aware that our actions aren't having the attentions that we meant them to then i think we are better people than that to listen and say "sorry, but our mistake of it wasn't our intention of it let's move it let's move on and let's better. the number of sports included in the commonwealth games could be reduced with news this week a total of 16 compulsory sports could be cut to two in 2026, with a host for the event still to be found. prepararions for the birmingham games next year are underway as athletes who were part of team gb compete for their own countries, the current crop of athletes hop(ing to follow in the footsteps of those who've won medals in front of their home fans. i'm bringing home for my family. they've been there for me through thick and thin and i'm doing it for

6:56 pm
