7:31 pm
hello and welcome to our final wimbledon sportsday — i'm hugh woozencroft. and there's a fairytale ending for roger federer as he seals a record 8th men's singles crown at the all england club. there's a slice of british success in the ladies wheelchair and the mixed doubles as jamie murray and his partner martina hingis seal victory. there's more british success at silverstone in today's men's final, roger federer gave to his fitting end. his
7:32 pm
straight sets wind over marin cilic was not exactly what we were expecting. in centre court history, one man has his own chapter. play roger federer here and you face the thousands who adore him. going for a record eight wimbledon title on this court, there are two kinds of royalty. at 35, still he is at his peak. two month break earlier this year has kept in swift on his feet, with a racket there is the same artistry. in the tension of the opening exchanges, federer has the power to break through. he ripped it across court. it was tough to take for marin cilic. one set down, already feeling the strain. he is having a horror, fallen apart a bit. in his first wimbledon final, it became too much to bear. with the weight of
7:33 pm
expectation back home, marin cilic was facing a torrent. you want the ground to open up and swallow you in situations like this. the great champions have now time for sympathy, federer ruthless to the second set. marin cilic put up more ofa second set. marin cilic put up more of a fight in the third, but already this looked inevitable. 18 grand slams later, the swiss has the same thirst for success. the championship title field without dropping a set. the first man to wind each championships. it was no time to show emotion. wimbledon‘s record—brea ker show emotion. wimbledon‘s record—breaker and, unquestionably, king of this court. an eighth title for federer means as much as the first. better than holding the trophy and winning today, i guess, is just trophy and winning today, i guess, isjust being trophy and winning today, i guess, is just being healthy. trophy and winning today, i guess, isjust being healthy. it trophy and winning today, i guess, is just being healthy. it feels great and it's means the world to me, we worked hard last year, so to
7:34 pm
be back here, i am just feeling great, holding the trophy, the tournament that i please, not dropping a set, it is magical, i cannot believe it, really, yet. eight wimbledon title, the only man in the history of wimbledon to ever wind it eight times. i guess it is disbelief that i can achieve such heights. i was not sure if i was ever going to be here again in another final after last year. i have had some tough frontier, losing to novak djokovic in 2014 and 2015, but i always believed that i would maybe come back and do it again and if you believe you can go really far in your life, if you believe you can go really far in yourlife, and if you believe you can go really far in your life, and i did that and if you believe you can go really far in your life, and i did thatand i really happy. i kept on believing and dreaming and here and today, it is fantastic. it is never easy playing with an injury, but you bravely battled on. yes, that is what i did throughout
7:35 pm
all of my career, never gave up when i started a match. that was my idea also today, i give my best and that was all i could do. i concede that it is obviously very washed all for you, but i can see that you have had a wonderful tournament and you can be so proud of that. yes, i have had an amazing journey, played the best tennis of my life and they really want to thank my team. they gave so much strength to me. and, of course, to all of my fans in croatia, it was really tough today and i gave it all andi really tough today and i gave it all and i am hoping definitely that i am going to come back here and try it one more time. sad moments for marin cilic, but roger federer makes history were sent —— with a 19th grand slam title. his place in the history books is definitely assured. this is what boris becker had to say about federer‘s achievements. what boris becker had to say about federer's achievements. we have seen
7:36 pm
history in the making, no man has w011 history in the making, no man has won a championship here to before. there were only three men who had seven. for him to achieve each today, that is something that we tell our grandchildren, we were there —— to achieve each titles. last year, he walked off limping, he had any problem, in the semifinal losing. he probably did not think that he would come back. he rescheduled all of this year, he won the austrian open, the first major of the year, and all of a sudden, federer is back. if you compare him to any other athlete of the world, he is right up there. if you think of formula 1, running, basketball, football, there is nobody like roger federer at the moment. i do not know if you can get better, but he can
7:37 pm
continue winning. i'm sure he will ta ke continue winning. i'm sure he will take some weeks off, but then which tournament to pick, the way that he is playing at the moment, there are more grand slams in the making. lam amazed, more grand slams in the making. i am amazed, it is incredible, when you reflect on the next 12 months, losing last year with a bad knee, questioning whether he would reach the heights again. when he took six months on, you're questioning whether he would recover and potentially get back to the heights he had reached before. to do that in a short period of time, winning in australia and indian wells and miami was australia and indian wells and miami wa s lova ble australia and indian wells and miami was lovable start to the year. then his decision to take the clay—court season off, there were definitely a few people questioning the wisdom of that, but getting back on a grass court to win and then when his eight wimbledon title without dropping a set has been incredible to watch. he doesn't move so which is
7:38 pm
understandable, but you have to be more aggressive and make your opponent to the running. that is what he is prepared to do, still hitting his spots brilliantly on his serve and then when his forehand comes into play, i don't think there's a better shot in the game. when you look at his accomplishments, certainly in an individual sport, in a global game, you look at the numbers, i guess jack nicklaus ingolstadt 18 majors and jack nicklaus ingolstadt18 majors and federer now 19, jack nicklaus ingolstadt18 majors and federer now19, it jack nicklaus ingolstadt18 majors and federer now 19, it is tough to think of other athletes that have transcended their sport as much as he has. he does not over exert himself with his technique, he's incredibly smooth, and he's incredibly super competitor as well. he's got a numberof competitor as well. he's got a number of things that can work amazingly well. breaking records as amazingly well. breaking records as a by—product of that. he knows his
7:39 pm
serve is going to hold up. he knows he will be able to get enough returns back. he knows he is quick off the mark. he is lightning, superfast. he is able to do that year in, yearout. superfast. he is able to do that year in, year out. that is the longevity of his career, it is quite phenomenal. i joked before, longevity of his career, it is quite phenomenal. ijoked before, saying federer will be winning matches at wimbledon when years 42. i'm not sure it is such a joke any more but he's incredibly light on his feet, just the way he plays enables, it puts pressure on the opponent very quickly and he's a master at getting through the first of tournaments quickly. his style of play, a bit like other champions that we have seen, nadal as well, they bring something new, different to the game that the regular player can't handle. now after roger federer's wimbledon win today, the centre—court crowd were also able to enjoy some british success on the final afternoon. and it came in the mixed doubles,
7:40 pm
afterjamie murray and the former wimbledon singles winner from switzerland — martina hingis — beat the defending champions — britain's heather watson and finland's henri kontinen in straight sets. i guess the crowd was a bit split but look, i mean, it was a great success for british tennis, to have two guys in the final, for us, we had a great week, we had a lot of amazing tennis, especially in a final, we knew we would have to play a really good match if we wanted another chance to win and we managed to do that. more home success away from wimbledon. lewis hamilton has won the british grand prix for a record—equalling fifth time. the historic victory moves him to within a point of sebastien vettel at the halfway stage of the f1 season — after the championship leader suffered a dramatic late puncture. silverstone 50 years ago, a scotsman won the british grand prix for a fifth time in a ltus ford.
7:41 pm
jim clark, surrounded by wonder and flowers. now anyone who comes here can experience every curve, every straight. every tyre. but only one could really feel how clark felt. lewis hamilton started with the same view, everyone behind him, but watch the rear—view mirror. kimi raikkonen tries to overtake. not so fast. off went hamilton. more to keep an eye on further back. sebastian vettel, the leader in the standings, had been caught, but charged back at verstappen full of adrenaline. formula 1 does dodgems. he wants to play bumper cars! sebastian vettel eventually passed him, but hamilton was over the horizon. the only question was whether he could get in and out of the pits still ahead. of course, he could. no one would get near him, but his position would improve. storari's tyres punctured. kimi raikkonen was beaten to second by bottas, and vettel‘s championship lead
7:42 pm
was about to deflate. we went from third to seventh. lewis hamilton could hardly have had a better day. it is amazing to be appear. it is amazing to be up here. so proud to see these flags everywhere, and the supporters return has been immense. i'm proud i could do this for you all. thank you for the support pushing us, the team was faultless this weekend. valtteri did a greatjob as well. it is a perfect return for us. these fans have just seen history, hamilton's fifth british grand prix win, his fourth in a row, and what's more the title race is definitely on. only one point stands between hamilton and vettel. sebastian, beware, he is catching. not so close in the cricket at the moment. south africa are dominating the second test against england and are on course to level the series at trent bridge. as adam wild reports, this has been a stark contrast to joe root‘s as adam wild reports, this has been a stark contrast tojoe root‘s debut as england's captain. for england's captain this was a first real test of strength. joe root, new to the job, his team in trouble and now was the moment to show his leadership.
7:43 pm
south africa already with a frustrating lead, all the more so with moments like this. amla should have been given out but england choose not to review it and would regret it. with one lusty blow, amla past is 50. it was time for the skipper to step up and step in. whatever he said to ben stokes, it works. finally, a wicket. root was the first to congratulate his bowler. and as all captains know, one wicket often brings two. england still struggling, but at least something to cheer. there wouldn't be very much more. forjoe root and england, this was getting tough to watch. rather less so for the south african fans. their lead way beyond 400 now as england's bowlers were again sent way beyond the boundary. a difficult day ina way beyond the boundary. a difficult day in a field finally brought to an end with moeen‘s fourth wicket but they would now need a
7:44 pm
record—breaking performance with the bat to win this. alastair cook knows a thing or two about captaincy but he was given out first ball and chose to review it. it was the right decision. he survives for tomorrow but a difficult task for the current captain has become almost impossible. adam wild, bbc news. england with a mountain to climb, still needing another 473 to win with all of their second innings wickets in hand. south africa, weather permitting, have a full two day to take the wickets they need to level the series. britain's defending champion chris froome overcame mechanical issues to retain his 18—second lead after stage 15 of the tour de france. despite a dramatic afternoon for an irritated froome, where he had to change a wheel, and deal with the hostile, booing home fans — he recovered brilliantly. but the briton was nowhere near today's 189.5km stage winner, bauke mollema, who took his first ever victory in the race. more importantly for froome, he retained the yellowjersey
7:45 pm
and continues to lead italy's fabio aru. tomorrow is a rest day. aled davies won his third world title in the discus and britain's seventh gold medal of the world para—athletics championships in london. let's take you to the london stadium and our sports news correspondent andy swiss. a good gold medal haul so farfor great britain? that's right, after last night's gold rush, yet more success for the british team this morning, courtesy of one of these styles of london 2012 in the stadium behind me, aled davies in the discus. 51.54 metres, the winning distance, his third world title in the discus and he could yet add a second gold medal later at these championships because next weekend is the shot put. that is the event where davies is the paralympic
7:46 pm
champion. it could be the first of two world titles in london for him. afterwards, not surprisingly, he said he was delighted with this morning's performance. work so hard. i know what i'm capable of doing. i'm going in there, like, i have been 353,54, capable of doing. i'm going in there, like, i have been 353, 54, 55 all year but with the crowd, i might do 55 or56, all year but with the crowd, i might do 55 or 56, we thought, who knows? but you keep forgetting that championship performance is a different kettle of fish and i'm just glad i've got the w and we can focus on the shot but now because i know i've got a special performance in the tank. plenty to look forward to this evening as well? that's right, as far as the british bands are concerned, no doubting the style of the show tonight because the final of the men's t 44100 metres, which meansjonnie of the men's t 44100 metres, which means jonnie peacock, the of the men's t 44100 metres, which meansjonnie peacock, the poster boy of london 2012, won gold five years
7:47 pm
ago, also won gold at the rio paralympics but ago, also won gold at the rio pa ralympics but he ago, also won gold at the rio paralympics but he did miss the last world championships two years ago with injury. he does have something to prove. his biggest rival, richard browne of the usa, the world record holder, is not here but even so, plenty of competition forjonnie peacock, especiallyjarryd plenty of competition forjonnie peacock, especially jarryd wallace of the usa but we have to say, peacock looked very impressive in his heat about half an hour ago, winning it convincingly, easing through in the end. the final is just before 9pm and certainly, jonnie peacock will begin as red—hot favourite for another gold medal. andy swiss at the london stadium, thank you forjoining us. great britain have topped the medal table after a highly successful para canoe european championships in bulgaria. there was final day success over the 200 meter distance with silver medals for ian marsden and rob oliver and a bronze for nick beighton. british olympic champion liam heath has defended his k—1200
7:48 pm
metre title, the gold medallist from the rio olympics will be hoping to add the world title to his collection in the czech republic next month. there's a dramatic finish at the scottish open in dundonald where a play—off is currently underway. world number 405, callum shinkwin, was on course for the biggest win of his career but on the 18th green, with a 1—shot lead over spain's rafa cabrera—bello, his final putt for victory came up short. it was his first drop shot of the round, reducing him to 13 under par. early in the day, cabrera—bello had carded a fantastic final round 64, including eight birdies. both will feature in next week's open at royal birkdale but one man missing out for the first time in 14 years is 2010 us open champion graeme mcdowell who finished inside the top 20 but that won't be enough for the world number 102. england have beaten ireland 3—2 at
7:49 pm
the women's oche world league semifinals. the victory means they finished top of the pool going into tuesday's quarterfinal. danny kerry's side went 2—0 up in johannesburg through sarah haycroft and shona mccallin but two goals in two minutes for ireland at the start of the third quarter levelled the scores. ten minutes later, captain alex danson fired in a rebound to seal england's victory. the top four teams in the tournament go through to the world league finals in new zealand in november. no medal success for great britain at the world aquatics championships today in bupadest, but there were a couple of personal bests. ross haslam and james heatly made their senior world championships debut in the 1m diving final. haslam finished in tenth while heatly scored ididn't i didn't even think i was going to make the team at the beginning of the season, let alone make the team and the final. i'm really happy and i've got a pb in the prelim and i beat that again this time saw over
7:50 pm
the moon. probably one of the biggest ages venues i've ever competed at so. this, that is a checkin competed at so. this, that is a check in the box. i'm happy with it. i could have dived a bit better but to dive in such a high standard event and hold my own, i'm really pleased. we're going to return to matters here at the all england club now and the home crowd had early reason to celebrate today with more success in the wheelchair doubles. fresh from alfie hewett and gordon reid's victory yesterday, jordanne whiley and herjapanese partner yui kamiji have won their fourth successive women's doubles title. they came from a set down to beat the second seeds marjolein buis and diede de groot 2—6, 6—3, 6—0. it's the pair's fourth straight wimbledon title, and it now means that whiley has ten grand slam titles to her name. this is by far the most special to me because i've been out for eight months, struggling with injury, i have not played with you for a year 110w have not played with you for a year now and i really tried my hardest and they are such a strong team. i'm so and they are such a strong team. i'm so happy! so yet another grand slam title forjordanne whiley. ten in total, equalling the number won by britain's most decorated
7:51 pm
wheelchair tennis player, pete norfolk. he's been speaking to gemma—louise stevenson. you know, when we started watching the match, and i have watched her this week, she has had quite a long time off with injuries and i did not think she was going to do it, i'll be honest. i was a bit pessimistic, idid not be honest. i was a bit pessimistic, i did not think she had the match fitness but i think what happened was a bit of a transition in the match, the dutch pair started pummelling jordanne with shots and she basically got into the groove and started slicing her back and and by the time the third set came around, with yui kamiji behind her, it was unbelievable. what really givesjordanne it was unbelievable. what really gives jordanne the it was unbelievable. what really givesjordanne the platform to play if her partner, she is so consistent, so committed, 100%. her defence was marvellous. and she has
7:52 pm
beaten your grand slam achievements, how do you feel about that.|j beaten your grand slam achievements, how do you feel about that. i don't mind at all, i did not realise it was a challenge, she started tweeting me, though. it's brilliant, they are so young, gordon, alfie, jaw dan bunn i started playing when i was 30, for goodness sakes. go mad when you're buddhist, versus what you witnessed today with the crowds and everything, all the matches, how different is it right now? well, we, i was playing at grand slams and progressively, they have moved the courts up. it depends on scheduling, actually, as to what the crowds are like. i mean, i played at the us open when my courts have been rammed with thousands of people and then we played on bigger courts with not much but that is not because of the crowd not wanting to be there, it is like today, federer is going for potentially history, so it's not surprising. but like gordon said yesterday, what would be fantastic
7:53 pm
would be to be on the main grandstand courts at all the grand slams. we have got the talent and the speed and power and the determination. let's get it out there so everyone can determination. let's get it out there so everyone can see determination. let's get it out there so everyone can see the showcase the specials of wheelchair tennis. after the wheelchair doubles the men's singles final took place on court number three. sweden's stefan olsson, who lost in the final a year ago, beat world no 1 gustavo fernandez in three sets to take the title. we arejust we are just about out of time for another year here on wimbledon sports day. we've had two weeks of drama at the all—england club. andy murray and johanna konta fell short in the singles but there were still three british successes to celebrate in the doubles competition. thank you forjoining us. we will leave you forjoining us. we will leave you with the history maker, roger federer, on the day he clinched an unprecedented eighth wimbledon singles title. from all the team here at wimbledon, good night. arguably the greatest champion of

of our weather watchers in suffolk but we should clear the cloud away as we go through tonight and then for the vast majority, dry with clear spells. always quite blustery across northern and western scotland with a bit of showreel rain at times. overnight lows of 13—15, certainly cooler and fresher towards the south. tomorrow, if you like warm and sunny weather, it is shaping up to be a beautiful day because it will be blue skies and sunshine forjust because it will be blue skies and sunshine for just about everyone. some showery rain across northern scotla nd some showery rain across northern scotland and some extra cloud across southern parts of england, which could turn the sunshine a bit hazy but it won't stop temperatures getting to 25, 26 and maybe 27 across the south—east. fine across wales, northern england, northern ireland and the vast majority of scotland, 23 or 24 in aberdeen but across the far north, it will stay quite cloudy and blustery with a bit of showreel rain continuing across

the northern isles. high pressure is because of the fine, dry, bright weather. in tuesday, the high—pressure drifts eastwards which allows us to import some warm air from the near confident, quite humid as well. a fair amount of sunshine all around although it will turn quite hazy across england and wales and late in the day, just a hint that we could start to see some scattered thunderstorms breaking out towards the south—west but before they arrive, temperatures 27 in northern scotland, maybe 2930 across some parts of england and wales but with the heat in place, it looks like the showers and storms will become more widespread, drifting northwards through tuesday night into wednesday, further scattered thunderstorms breaking out later in the day across england and wales. a pretty unsettled middle part of the week. once the storm is clear away, it will turn cooler and fresher. this is bbc news. the headlines at eight... the chancellor criticises cabinet colleagues for briefing against him as he defends his position on public sector pay. public—sector workers on average are paid about 10% more than private—sector workers. relative to private—sector workers, are they overpaid? they are paid about a 10% premium
