edition of the papers. this morning's reviewers are the journalist yasmin alibhai brown and the political commentator james millar. before the papers, sport. and for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, here's richard askam. andy murray is out of the australian open after losing in four sets in melbourne. mischa zverev is the world number 50, but murray had no answer to his serve and volley tactics. despite making the final on five occasions , andy murray has never won the title. paul garrity reports on a missed opportunity for the world number one. being box office number one, the scene was set for andy murray to finally become the australian open champion. zverev, the world number 50, dreamta champion. zverev, the world number 50, dreamt a different end to detail. the british number one was sent home after three and a half hours and four gruelling sets. it was one set apiece going into the
third, but at this point the momentum swung in the german's favour. murray was seemingly running out of ideas. the world number one was asking questions at the net. zverev, a serve and volley specialist, had all the answers. murray is a specialist in dealing with adversity and wasn't about to concede just yet. but zverev and his superb net play frustrated murray. the german felt like a superstar. so to the final act, one which zverev will always remember. for murray, this wasn't where the story was supposed to end. obviously a tough match, it was a long one. hard conditions, it was hot out there. zverev zve rev ca m e zverev came out with great stuff. he plays against are that not many players play. he played extremely well,
especially the end of the match. he came up with some great stuff, really good volleys and pick—ups, reflexes, you know, he was really good. he deserved to win. a tough one to lose. dan evans run is also over after losing to 12th seed jo—wilfried tsonga in melbourne. evans had knocked out world number seven marin cilic and then bernard tomic to reach his first grand slam fourth round but the frenchman proved too much. despite taking the first set on a tie break, evans lost the next three. tsonga goes through to face us open champion stan wawrinka for a place in the semi—finals. while evans is set to climb from sist to 45th in the world rankings. there are highlights from melbourne on bbc two from 5:15pm. england's cricketers have already lost the one day series against india so there's little more than pride to play in the final match in kolkata. after being put into bat, england have made a positive start on a tricky pitch.
sam billings and jason roy added 98 for the first wicket, with roy making his third consecutive half century — but the surrey man has just departed for 65 — bowled by ravi jadeja. a short time ago, england were 110 for 2 from 20 overs. sir bobby charlton says he's delighted for wayne rooney, who yesterday scored his 250th goal for manchester united to become the club's top scorer, finally eclipsing sir bobby's record. rooney will not have scored too many better with a stunning 94th minute free kick earning united a 1—1 draw at stoke. yes, a great honour, so i can really proud. it is difficult at the minute to be over pleased because of the result. two points dropped, but in the grand scheme of things, is a huge honourfor me and something i did not expect when ijoined the club, but i am delighted and really proud. premier league leaders chelsea
will be happy with the results in the premier league yesterday — the teams chasing them gained little ground. liverpool suffered a shock defeat to swansea city and manchester city and tottenham hotspur drew. ben croucher wraps up the day's action. saturday wasn't a good day to manage a top—six side. if you played, that is. along with manchester united, the other three in action couldn't muster a win between them. liverpool are yet to win in the league in 2017. struggling swansea had never won in the league at anfield, but llorente put them ahead. liverpool couldn't hang on. it is going to come to sigurdsson. swansea back in front! and holding on for a 3—2 win, paul clements‘s first as swansea manager. the liverpool slip—up presented manchester city, and tottenham, the chance to move clear of them. city looked on—course, when two mistakes allowed them to go two goals up, only for spurs to then score with their only two shots on target.
gabrieljesus thwarted one with his first shot in a city shirt. one slight problem. it is not easy being a football manager, is it? oh, look at the agony! if it is tough near the top, try being at the bottom. that is where david moyes‘s sunderland find themselves, after losing 2—0 at west brom. chris brunt scored the pick of the goals. if the moyes magic hasn't rubbed off on sunderland, sam's sorcery is lacking at crystal palace as well. allardyce is still without a premier league win at his new club. seamus coleman's late strikes for everton relegate palace into the bottom three. one man on the upper right now is andy carroll. he followed up his wonder goal last weekend with two more in west ham's 3—1 victory at middlesbrough. ben croucher, bbc news. elsewhere bournemouth came from behind twice to salvage a draw against watford.
that is all your sports are now. now it is time for the papers. hello and welcome to our review of the sunday morning papers. with me are the journalist yasmin alibhai brown and the political commentator james millar. so, today's front pages... the sunday express leads with news of theresa may's upcoming meeting with president trump. the global protests against the new president makes the front page of the observer. the mail on sunday claims the prime minister is set to use her meeting with president trump to tell him to stop insulting women. while the sunday telegraph says the president is planning a new deal with britain to reduce trade barriers and reach a joint position on nato.
the sunday times leads on a story that downing street covered up a nuclear weapons mishap which apparently led to a trident missile veering off course during a test firing near florida and heading towards the united states. so, let us get started. we will stop the sunday express. theresa may is my the sunday express. theresa may is gie. the sunday express. theresa may is my maggie. the prime minister will be the first world leader to meet the president. the relationship is expected to be as close as margaret thatcher and ronald reagan. a lack of imagination. theresa may and a right wing american president. it will be like reagan and maggie all over again. it really does suggest a lack of imagination. this is not ronald reagan and this is not maggie. clearly different people.|j think i might end up missing margaret thatcher by the time this
period is over. honestly! that would bea period is over. honestly! that would be a first. would be. listening to theresa may's speech i thought, my god, she is hard right in some ways, which margaret thatcher never dared to be quite that way. she wasn't so in yourface. to be quite that way. she wasn't so in your face. but one of the things in this story, it's all about wanting to go to the palace! he is like a little boy, isn't he. he wants a bigger party, a big reception. more than obama had. this is where the queen will do the nation's business and will welcome him, whether it is buckingham palace, golf at saint andrews or whatever. the queen will fly the flag for britain. she always does, which is nothing in a way. publicly it will be very level and all the rest of it. the question is will the rest of it. the question is will the rest of it. the question is will the
rest of them meet with him? prince charles is a champion of climate change. donald trump does not believe in it. it is off the white house agenda. no, he said it doesn't exist. it is not happening, you know? it is a plot by china. it will be an interesting meeting. let us move on. i was struck by the daily mail headline. cut out your sexist chat, mr president. first of all, i don't know how much of it is too much imagination or wishful thinking or whatever, but i don't know if she can. if she does, good. but do you really think that the first meeting, and they will curtail to him because of this trade deal, that she is going to say that? i doubt it.|j
hope so. if you are a grown—up place with a bully who is offensive to women, she should walk into the room and so, please don't do that. can i point out, he got half the women's bob. that is why i am fascinated by the headline. the mail on sunday is not a champion of women's rights, shall we say, as a title. but it does have a lot of women readers, so they clearly think the readers are offended by trump's sexist insults. whereas as you say, a lot of women in america when so offended that they couldn't bring themselves to vote for him. i'm intrigued by the fa ct vote for him. i'm intrigued by the fact that the daily mail thinks that the readers, if they work in america, would be trump voters. that is very interesting. also, the mail oi'i is very interesting. also, the mail on sunday is a very different paper
from the daily mail. the mail on sunday was four remain and the daily mail was for brexit. maybe they have a different place they are coming from. and i suppose we will hear this tired phrase about the special relationship, which every british diplomat who has worked in washington can't stand. there is a special relationship. we have to be quite careful about how we use that phrase. but theresa may will be the first foreign leader to meet him on friday, we now know. it is a koo. mr farage will take the credit for it. i think the british ambassador in washington might take the credit. he will get that within the diplomatic service. and theresa may's team went over a few weeks ago. beyond this,
we over a few weeks ago. beyond this, we have the sunday telegraph who have the substance of what we think might go on. trump's new dealfor britain. president's teamwork on deal, despite global protest. a deal to reduce barriers between british and american banks. a working group to identify barriers to trade and a joint statement on defence. but the context has got to beat america first, hasn't it? it is. that's a striking thing about his inauguration speech, that if any other nation thinks that he cares at all about anybody else, i don't know what they are thinking. and there is also this small problem that we are still in the eu, so we still can't go around signing agreements until we are out. or even formally discuss agreements. it is against the rules, but honestly this man doesn't understand anything about international relations and how the
whole world works. but a warm personal relationship, if that is what theresa may can establish, is important? what we have seen over the last few days suggests trump might be absolutely crazy. he is still a bit of a mystery. is he crackers or is it a big plan to distract people with one thing whilst something else is going on? theresa may, whatever you think of her politics, is a grown—up. theresa may, whatever you think of her politics, is a grown-up. she is a very serious person. to have a grown—up men him who has his ear and can possibly have some control over him... she is a woman. him dancing with his wife. his wife seem to be curling away. so theresa may, don't dance with him. he is not ed balls, in terms of the dancing! in so many
ways he is not ed balls. i think another interesting point over the last few days is this sensitivity to things which other people might think are less interesting. like the size of the inauguration crowds. we have seen the pictures, but we are now told that it was the most viewed inauguration in history. maybe on tv, but the crowds look thinner. he hates it. he is a bully in everywhere, but if anyone criticises him what he thinks he has achieved, then there is this real anger that erupts out of him. they are not able, i mean they have controlled messages for long enough, but we may be entering a time when there is proper coverage of what this man is and people are less scared of his tweets and his bullying. but the white house press spokesman has made it clear that they will hold the media to account. this is what i
mean about is it all part of a plan? quite clearly the crowd was not as big as previous crowds. he said it was. is it because he is mad, which isa was. is it because he is mad, which is a worry because he has the nuclear codes, or does he want us to worry about the crowd was he is trashing obamacare behind the scenes. he wants to control everything, including the story and thatis everything, including the story and that is what we now have ahead of us. that is what we now have ahead of us. it is a plan. so you're talking about the crowd instead of talking about the crowd instead of talking about obamacare. no, talking up the crowd. that is crazy. there are millions of americans who distrust the so—called mainstream media. they don't regard it as reflecting the views. they look at donald trump's
tweets and think that it reflects their views. i have a problem with their views. i have a problem with the term mainstream media. and we have two admit, the mainstream media, we hate each other because we are all competitive. sometimes! it doesn't really matter in a way because the bottom line is, there we re because the bottom line is, there were only so many people there at trump's inauguration. it doesn't matter who is reporting it, it is a fa ct! matter who is reporting it, it is a fact! in one breath he said what he said about muslims when he was campaigning. and then the next day he got up and said, i like muslims, they are good people. some of my best friends... i think he even use that term. he said he didn't mock a reporter with disabilities. yes you do, we saw it. the observer talks
about the protests. does it change anything at all? it is important because if we are not going to let us because if we are not going to let us get into the situation of a new kind of neofascism, one way or another, individually or as collectives, we have to resist or at least be cut because otherwise i don't know what is going to happen to be world. the whole world, not just the united states. remember, this happened during the iraq war. on one day the world came out. they could not stop the war, but nobody has ever forgotten that in one of the reasons blair ended up when he did was because of that coming out against the war. so it is important. how do you see james? as one who was on the march in london yesterday, i don't know how much it achieves, but it does make you feel better being amongst like—minded people. iwas
struck by the number of men who were either on the tube on the sidelines of the module are saying exactly that in an aggressive way. why are you doing this, it won't change anything, your ridiculous. i shouldn't be surprised by it, but i was. no, it's not going to change the fact trump is president, but it sends out some sort of message, either to him to like—minded people that you not alone will stop that there is hope if the lee—macro. —— that there is hope. but he is being skint. more people turned out for the protest marches than his inauguration. and that will really affect him. it's a strange story.
they've reported on the american march and not the british one. at the top of the front page of the paper be leader line, this summarises absolutely clearly what many of us feel has happened. let's move on to the sunday times. they have an exclusive. a really good story. house covered up trident fiasco. —— number ten. there was no nuclear tipped on it, but it clearly malfunction. the head of all of this has said it is safer we know what we are doing, but we will never know if it happened and how it happens, i don't think. i think the contrast with the observer, that is a story. it is exclusive. some people will be
reporting tomorrow and the next day because the commons want to know what were wrong. the protest were reported on the story. what were wrong. the protest were reported on the storylj what were wrong. the protest were reported on the story. i thought one of the most interesting stories was about 10% of people not owning a single book. would you make of that? i believe it and i find it terribly depressing, especially as now libraries are closing down, you know? ijust find it really sad that there are people, i know people, i have got some rich friends who have artificial books. they look like books? they look like leather bound books, but they are not, so that is where we are. i am suspicious of it. it might be fake news. it is a pr survey will stop if it is true, as you say, the worst thing is if
people don't have books, you can't go around to the house and judge them on what they read. people have e—readers on the trainer. them on what they read. people have e-readers on the trainer. he has got an e—reader, what is he reading? is it something dodgy? i'm talking to an american —— i remember talking to an american —— i remember talking to an american —— i remember talking to an american teacher and she said that they determine how well a child is going to do based on if there are books in the house. that is an important determinant.|j books in the house. that is an important determinant. i helped a young child to read. she had a typical home life. the first time i gave her a book, she was six and she did not know which side to open. it was very sad. but she did learn and within three months she was reading fluently. it's just within three months she was reading fluently. it'sjust the opportunity. does it matter that much these days
with e—readers? you can read books online. are we terribly old—fashioned? i am glad we are old—fashioned. i am old—fashioned? i am glad we are old—fashioned. iam in old—fashioned? i am glad we are old—fashioned. i am in favour of newspapers as well, something you can pick up and read, but the kids are not necessarily reading, they are not necessarily reading, they are reading something else.|j are not necessarily reading, they are reading something else. i do think you can give a child be hungry caterpillar on an e—reader. think you can give a child be hungry caterpillar on an e-reader. most kids started with comics. there is only bb note left. dandy went online a few years ago. i don't know is a simple answer. not ideal for a pundit to say that. we will leave it there. that is it. and a reminder, we there. that is it. and a reminder, we ta ke there. that is it. and a reminder, we take a look at the front pages
every evening, here on bbc news. this weather watch review shows the frost on the ground, but some cloud around. many places are hovering close to freezing. parts of the uk have a lot of cloud, and that's the case in scotland. we will see wintery flurries in scotland today, not amounting to very much. some light rain, sleet and snow. thicker cloud across the north as well. temperatures are recovering after a frosty start. the cloud will thin at the time to allow bright and sunny spells. a fine afternoon into northern ireland. feeling cold
around three celsius. in two tonight, the frost is coming back. could turn icy in places. there are four patches especially into england and wales for monday morning's shower. not everyone will say, but it could be dense and there will be freezing fog patches at that. that could cause a few problems. the fog could linger and temperatures won't be any higher than freezing. elsewhere, variable clouds and better visibility compared with the four key areas. still on the chilly side and that is how we are starting the week.
temperatures mostly in the range between three and five celsius. as we between three and five celsius. as we go into monday evening, again, a frost coming back for some. the fog patches will go into tuesday and most at risk will be england and wales. during the week, high pressure will still settle for a time across england and wales. the scotla nd time across england and wales. the scotland and northern ireland the wind will pick up, low pressure gets closer and by the end of the week it will be turning wetter. this is bbc news. i'm gavin esler. the headlines at 10. theresa may will be the first world leader to meet president trump when she travels to washington on friday — trade, nato and brexit are on the agenda. whenever there was something i find unacceptable and will not be afraid
to say it. after hundreds of thousands took to the streets in protest against the new president — the white house accuses the media of dishonestly reporting the size of the crowd at his inauguration. we had a massive field of people, you saw that, packed. i get up this morning and turn on one of the networks, and they show an empty field. the ministry of defence says it has absolute confidence in the uk's nuclear defence system after reports that a trident missile test went wrong. also in the next hour — calls for more to be
