8:02 am
and matt has the weather. most m ost pla ces most places will be dry. i have all the details on that later. good morning. first, our main story. after all of the hype, came the fight. the most lucrative boxing bout in history came to a dramatic conclusion just over an hour ago. the american fighter floyd mayweather beat ireland's conor mcgregor as the referee stopped the fight in the tenth round. the irishman, the biggest name in mixed martial arts, had never boxed professionally before, while mayweather came out of retirement for the fight. our sports news correspondent richard conway was ringside. 50 wins, no defeats. floyd mayweather junior confirmed his position as one of the all—time greats in a fight that surpassed expectations. with just over a minute remaining in the tenth round, the dominance of a man who refers to himself as tbe, the best ever, proved too much for conor mcgregor with the referee stopping the contest. # there's only one conor mcgregor #. a sense of hope, anticipation and excitement had built throughout the day, with irish fans turning the desert city green.
8:03 am
three rounds, three rounds. mcgregor. you know, he has got the punter's chances, they say, and if he can land a... one of his left hand shots, he could do it. and floyd mayweather wasn't without support either. 49 tried, 49 failed, it is going to be 50 tonight, believe that. put your money where your mouth is. conor knows it, it is a cool 60 million. he'll come and get punched up for a cool 60. that is what we are going to do to him. when the bell rang for the first round, mcgregor emerged all guns blazing, catching mayweather with a number of powerful shots. the irishman had claimed for weeks that he was ready to shock the world and with three rounds gone, some began to wonder if he would deliver on his promise. but in his first professional boxing contest, the pace and skills of mayweather ground the irishman down and he visibly tired. by the ninth round, mcgregor‘s legs began to wobble, clinging to his opponent and the ropes for survival. and the next round saw the end of a fight that has intrigued and repulsed in equal measure, with all its controversies and the amount of money involved.
8:04 am
and richard joins us now from las vegas. ican i can see the press, it's behind you. they have clean themselves up. conor mcgregor speaking. what has he been saying? he has taken to the stage in the last few minutes, you can see alongside him floyd mayweather, he has been talking to the press that while. talking about his respect for conor mcgregor, helped off an opponent he proved to be in the end, going ten rounds with him before the referee stopped this contest will stop as the conor mcgregor, he said it was a lot of fun. he said he enjoyed the experience, he enjoyed the fight, he wa nted experience, he enjoyed the fight, he wanted the fight to go on. he said he thought it was stopped too soon, he thought it was stopped too soon, he wanted to feed through to the tenth round. but but the respect to
8:05 am
floyd mayweather. in stark contrast to this fight where both men through slower after sir one another, their behaviour, their language tarnishing beef bought, some believe. but in the end, they have to do their talking. it is coming up to midnight here, both men emerging after the fight, question still going on to them here. both men are walking away with a huge sum of money from this contest, conor mcgregor going back, we may not see him box again. floyd mayweather going into retirement with an unblemished record. in that sense, both fighters were winners on this occasion, conor mcgregor did much better than people thought he would. what are the experts saying now that the dust has settled a little bit on this? yes, we still getting the opinion coming through. thought this fight would be fast, people who questioned
8:06 am
the sporting legitimacy of the bouts, wondering if a man like conor who had never box professionally could really hack it in the ring against a boxer who is considered the best one of the best of all time. in the end, he went ten rats, the first three rounds he came out they gave it is all. but then he lacked the stamina, the stamina started to say, you saw him clinging on, the legs had gone towards the end of the eighth and ninth round. in the tenth, that is when floyd merriweather showed always express and skill but he's built over two decades and put the contest beyond his reach. —— floyd mayweather. both men liked it, they are to continue on with questions for some time. they want to use this moment to talk about where they are going to go next and what they are good to do, especially conor mcgregor talking about going back to mixed martial arts. he has certainly impressed a lot of people in this arena in las vegas tonight and those watching around the world. thank you so much, it is fascinating
8:07 am
to watch that kind of drama going on in the background there and there is no doubt that you have the will of done quite well out of this and conor mcgregor‘s profile. i will beat you want wheat. lennox lewis the conor kept it interesting that he was outboxed and out great in the ring. nothing to be ashamed of, i like him even more. i think it takes guts to start a boxing ring or whenever b where ever. it is 80 7p last night it is 8:07am. for the first time labour has committed to keeping the uk in the single market and the customs union for a number of years after leaving the eu. the plan would mean accepting the free movement of labour beyond the official brexit date of march 2019. let's get more detail now from our political correspondent, jonathan blake. he is in london newsroom. jonathan, this book is a bit of clear blue water between labour and the conservatives over this particular issue? yes, it does. it is clarification of labour's position on brexit which has been criticised for being a little bit confused. but
8:08 am
it does, as you say, said about their powerfor it does, as you say, said about their power for life it does, as you say, said about their powerfor life in it does, as you say, said about their power for life in the it does, as you say, said about their powerfor life in the uk post brexit from the government. key is the transitional agreement, the transitional period which would happen after march 2019 and a date at some point in the future as yet unspecified. the government got up —— guzman, as we know, once you leave the single market on day one. when we formally leave the eu, labour on the other hand, keir starmer setting without this morning, would keep the uk in the customs union and the single market during that transitional period. for how long? as short as possible but as long as necessary is what labour are saying. definitely keeping their options open their and as to what would happen after the transitional agreement ended, that is much less clear. so still plenty of questions about britain's relationship with the european union, longer in the
8:09 am
future but some clarity from labour, loose what they would do in the interim period this morning. jonathan, thank you. emergency workers in texas are being deployed into the area hit by the most powerful hurricane to reach the state in half a century to assess the damage it has caused. two people are now known to have died. earlier on breakfast, cbs news reporter weijiajiang who is in corpus christi told us hundreds of thousands of residents are without power. we're here in corpus christi, the city is pretty much in the dark because those hurricane force winds knocked down so many power lines, in fact, you can see the pier behind me was snapped into pieces by the same winds. but the second part of this is really the rain and that is going to make the rescue efforts, the clean—up efforts, the rebuilding efforts so much more difficult in the hardest—hit areas. about 30 miles from where we are, rockport, texas, which is where harvey came ashore. we were there all day today and i can tell you it is difficult to look at this town that looks like a town
8:10 am
that once was, that sort ofjust has the remains there all strewn about, all over. i mean, here in corpus christi, there is debris and palm trees, light posts, a lot in the street, right? but there you see completely levelled buildings, whether they are homes, buildings and all sorts of material too, even brick buildings were totally ripped apart. and so people who decided to stay there and not evacuate, we were talking with them, we were watching them, and they were all still ina state of shock almost, that this was their town because they did not recognise it. so, as they are trying to clean up, they're worried that the system could whip back around to them. but right now the focus is shifting at least for tonight to houston in that area because they are dealing with so much catastrophic flooding. a cbs reporter talking to earlier
8:11 am
from christie corporate —— corpus christi. the victims of the grenfell tower tragedy will be remembered with a minute's silence this afternoon at the notting hill carnival. security for the event has also been reviewed in the wake of the barcelona terror attack. and simonjones is in notting hill for us this morning. how visible is the security there are? lots of police around, lots of roads have been shot of and it is a very big security presence. the carnival does not officially kick off another hour but take a look at the seams along here on the road and thousands of people have already taken to the streets, they are making a lot of noise. there's a lot of mess, a lot of paint being thrown around. a lot of music, people are here determined to have a good time. but as well as the celebrations, there is also going to be commemorations of the people who lost their lives and the grenfell tower fire. the lost their lives and the grenfell towerfire. the idea is that at lost their lives and the grenfell tower fire. the idea is that at 3pm, the whole carnival will come to a halt, there will be a minutes
8:12 am
silence to remember those victims. for the organisers, it is a balancing act, they want people to come out to have a good time but they want that moment of reflection and it is the same for the police as well. they are determined that people should be able to have a good time that thousands of officers will be on the streets, there is going to be on the streets, there is going to be face recognition technology to try and identify known criminals. party, but responsibly. thank you very much. people clearly in the party meter in notting hill. —— party meter in notting hill. —— party mood. three minibus passengers including a 5—year—old girl remain seriously ill in hospital, after yesterday's crash on the m1, in which eight people were killed. two lorry drivers are being questioned on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and are in police custody. it is 12 minutes past eight. the clash between boxing legend floyd mayweather and cage—fighter conor mcgregor was billed as the "fight of the century". in the end the class and skill of the undefeated american
8:13 am
champion, mayweather shone through. so did the action match the hype? bbc radio 5 live's steve bunce was ringside for the highly anticipated clash. good morning. thank you so talking to us. i heard you beforehand referred to as more event than a boxing match, did anything you saw their tonight change your opinion? it was still an event, itjust happen to be a fantastic boxing match. it was still a circus, you just happen to be a fantastic boxing match. it was a fight that nobody could have possibly predicted because even conor mcgregor‘s staunchest fans, the while travelling irish port, the men that have been with him in the gym for the last 12 years, none of them seem to think he was going to go out and outboxed the boxer, floyd mayweather. for three rounds, possibly even format, it was all conor mcgregor and that was the real
8:14 am
shock, these letters, yes it was a circus. but what a fantastic circus it turned into. some people on social media suggesting that maybe those early rounds, it was just a case of mayweather working out what he had got to deal with and he was letting him come on the did try and gauge the way that he thought. would you agree with that? listen, i've been around floyd mayweather a long time, ifirst been around floyd mayweather a long time, i first interviewed been around floyd mayweather a long time, ifirst interviewed in 1996. i think that is amiss from the vision of what happened. mayweather said it all went to plan. absolute rubbish. what happened in the first few rounds is that conor mcgregor had an absolutely fantastic plan and came out fired up and floyd mayweather, who lives revealed in the last 20 minutes that for one month, he did not bar because his brittle handsworth hurting him, his timing
8:15 am
was bad. his distance was bad. floyd mayweather only came into this fight when conor mcgregor‘s tanks started to empty. what happens now? will floyd mayweather, who says he is retiring, stay retired ? floyd mayweather, who says he is retiring, stay retired? he is doubly gone. he is 50—0. he is 49 years of age. he is gone. he is going to spend more and more time around his boxers, his team, team mayweather here in las vegas and also he has said tonight is going to become a trainer, just like his father floyd and just like his uncle, two or three of them all have had various times in the corner with him. floyd mayweather, he is 50—0, he is a0 yea rs of mayweather, he is 50—0, he is a0 years of age and he's going to be a trainer. he is still going to be in the box and business. conor mcgregor, do expect to be reporting
8:16 am
on another boxing bout with him in the future? i hope so because i've had seven days out of there, i have had seven days out of there, i have had a lot of fun. i've had a lot of fun with all the needy. there's not a region in uk but i've not talked about this fight. he says he will go back to mixed martial arts to the ufc but undoubtedly he will have at least one, properly too, maybe even three more fights in the boxing ring and that is because when he actually sits down when his holiday next week and starts counting up the money, he is going to about a, minimum. what happened to the hawaiian shirt you promised us. -- hundred and 50 million, minimum. i told promised us. -- hundred and 50 million, minimum. itold you promised us. -- hundred and 50 million, minimum. i told you not to mention it to my wife. she said i cannot wear that one when you did a bit of social. apparently i had it
8:17 am
on and on the spec, she said i cannot wear it. i am rocking a unique lock billy matlin, i have got shorts on and a suitjacket. elegance. great to speak to you. thank you very much. i love it. lows of reaction to steve's short a little bit later. reaction from the boxing community to that fight. take it or leave it, floyd mayweather made it. conor mcgregor was disciplined in his debut and showed good boxing skills. here's one from frank bruno who tweeted a well done to conor mcgregor. he gave it everything but floyd mayweather has shown boxing is boxing. a test of endurance, the poor women in the bikinis or been standing in leicester letters for six hours now.
8:18 am
—— standing in their high heels. here's matt with a look at this morning's weather. if the weather for bikinis and shorts? some could get away with it today, but not me. look at the view from someone's window in suffolk at the moment. it is a fine start to sunday while vast majority of the country, light winds. a bit of cloud and sunshine. there is a bit more cloud and sunshine in parts of west scotland, northern ireland, a few splashes of rain here and there. north england, north and west wales, but more cloud coming and going at times. do not be surprised if you see is drizzle, especially over the higher ground. the emphasis is on dry weather. best of the sunshine south and east of the country into the afternoon and the highs of the temperatures up to the mid—20s for
8:19 am
some. low 20s in leeds for the second test between england and west indies, it stays dry. a bit more cloud tomorrow. the same if you're heading off to the carnival this weekend in leeds. the notting hill carnival, dry and sunny and warm. temperature is kind a little bit further tomorrow under a gentle breeze. we finished the day with some sunshine, a bit more cloud north and west. some hazy sunshine today in scotland and northern ireland. tonight, the car picking up a little miffed boar, the breeze strengthens. a bit more anyway a blue cloud —— lou cloud. anxious to start your monday, mid—teens for many. high pressure keeps things dry and bright to be south and ease, low pressure to the north and west introduces a weather front, breezy conditions. some sunshine at times in the east of scotland, particularly in the morning, same in northern ireland. clouding overfor many, abbot of rain —— outbreaks of
8:20 am
rain. a bit more cloud here, some bricks in the cloud, allowing the sunshine three. it could well be a blue sky day be further south east you go. temperature is around 28 celsius. a little bit patchy rain will meet through the saudis as we go through monday night and into tuesday and that will introduce slightly fresher conditions for next week. quite a bit of cloud around at times and there will be some rain on the west on wednesday but still a lot of dry weather and if you off the whole week, there is some sunshine to enjoy as well. thank you very much, matt. the story behind the construction of the queensferry crossing which links the lothians and fife is best told in numbers. it cost has cost £1.35 billion, its 1.7 miles long and required more than 23,000 miles of cables and 35,000 tonnes to steel to build.
8:21 am
0ur scotland correspondent, lorna gordon has visited the bridge as the finishing touches are made before the queen officially opens it next week. rising out of the waters of the fall, the queensferry crossing linking edinburgh and fight. the construction of this bridge took six yea rs construction of this bridge took six years to complete and its design means it should stay open to traffic no matter how strong the winds get during the often bad winter weather. it isa during the often bad winter weather. it is a very technical bridge and a lot of the technical aspects are invisible, you cannot see them. the foundations, for example, are probably be most dramatic and the most difficult to achieve on the whole project and i think people do not see that. they do see the magnificence of it, quite a beautiful bridge. the narrow crossing has a striking cantilever design, which catches the light what the bridge soars above the landscape below. it is the tallest bridge in the uk, as well as the longest of its type in the world. 15,000 people
8:22 am
have been involved in this huge construction project. last—minute work is continuing to get the motorway crossing ready for traffic which injust a motorway crossing ready for traffic which in just a few days' time will start using this, the third bridge on this part of the forth. look spectacular. it amazes me how they build these things. an incredibly talented of people. it isa it is a 22 am. time now for a look at the newspapers. the writer, paul vallely is here to tell us what has caught his eye. we'll speak to paul injust a minute. letters have a quick look at the front pages, the sunday express. 0ne story fed them on the front page, terrible crash yesterday on the m1, five people still in hospital. eight people died also a suggestion that a
8:23 am
number of them were members of the same family. front page of the sunday telegraph this morning is talking about certain weaknesses around the security measures surrounding parliament and westminster, suggesting that terrorists could break into parliament in under five minutes, according to certain test that were carried out by the police. the front page of the sunday mirror has an exclusive interview with bruce forsyth's widow who talks about the gap there has been left in her life since the entertainer died just over a week ago. fat cat so—called buses of companies have been under the spotlight for a long time now but the sunday times this morning suggesting that ministers say they could be looking ata ministers say they could be looking at a pay cut. it is complicated to try and ensure that that happens but thatis try and ensure that that happens but that is something they are exploring in the sunday times this morning. let us get inside the papers with poor all who is here. —— paul. a bit
8:24 am
ofa poor all who is here. —— paul. a bit of a move by labour about brexit baptism distinct difference between themselves and the conservatives over the single market. this is a major story, this is brexit, soft brexit being endorsed by the labour party. there's a big article by keir starmer there, the brexit spokesman, but has been endorsed byjeremy corbyn and the rest of the leadership and it says an end to constructive ambiguity, no more mixed messages. labour has been a difficult position because their supporters in the north, broadly speaking, i'll throw brexit and in the south, and brexit. they have tried to tread a tie—break to keep eve ryo ne tried to tread a tie—break to keep everyone happy. for a long time, saying we are out of the single market. now they seem to be contradiction. they are changing their mind, he is an old—style hard lefty. he realises that all the young support forjeremy corbyn is
8:25 am
anti—brexit and they have got a sniff of power now, labour, they think there's a real chance that something can happen here and so they are putting forward what they regard as a realistic policy of up to four years transition basically staying in the kind of situation, the kind of relationship we have got with the eu, that we have always beenin with the eu, that we have always been in until a proper agreement is negotiated. not ruling out staying in permanently as well? 0nly in permanently as well? only if they can get certain compromises on freedom of movement because that is what so many people waiting for brexit were later bullied tighter controls over borders. —— were led to believe. there is a story about brexit to the future, they call it. it is basically a hardline the tories are still maintaining and david davies
8:26 am
saying we are not going to pay 80,000,000,000th in compensation, 80,000,000,000th in compensation, 80,000,000,000th seems to be the new figure the difference between the tories is now clear. it was not in the last election. i press screening of the new bake 0ff, rave reviews. this reviewer here in the sunday express , this reviewer here in the sunday express, presumably watch that, things that has all the ingredients to bea things that has all the ingredients to be a success. that is a little supplement that they have done and the question on the cover on the supplement is well bake 0ff rise to the occasion? ten inside and the a nswer the occasion? ten inside and the answer is yes. if you like the other papers, the sunday telegraph and so forth, all saying the same thing. what struck me about it is when bake off what struck me about it is when bake 0ff went to channel a, the universal opinion among the papers with this isa opinion among the papers with this is a terrible thing, it will never be the same again. big thumbs down
8:27 am
all round. it is imminent again, interesting there has been a big shift on the reviews, the previews of it. they all saying it is has got all the ingredients, it is looking like a good thing. they pay £20 million for its? they are buying that recipe, that successful formula, they are not good to change it, are they? they lost three of the four key presenters. the same tent, same format. people seem convinced about it. they will be interesting to watch. if you have ever stood on a piece of lego or an uptown plug, you may have found certain expletives coming out of your mouth. seemingly this could help with pain. science now so —— scientists now say popping pills is not as good for you as swearing when it comes to pain. they have an experiment where you have do plunge your hand into an ice cold bucket and half the group has to swear
8:28 am
while they are doing it and the other group are giving a different non—swearing word to say and they did this and injapan and they discovered that people can keep that had in the cold water for twice as long. does it have to be swear words or can adjust the those explosive words? a proper swear word. a p pa re ntly words? a proper swear word. apparently the japanese do not swear as much as we do. they were told that they should use the proper swear words. you can double the length of time you can put up with pain if you swear, it is official. i think pain if you swear, it is official. ithink any pain if you swear, it is official. i think any woman who has been through childbirth will be able to confirm that you as well. we are going to victoria. the return of victoria, this is inside the sunday telegraph. it is in the express as well. sunday nights, we have been spoiled in recent years, downturn, the handmade's tale, the
8:29 am
original series of victoria, the night manager, appletree yard, the great thing on a sunday night is now to stay in. victoria was a great series because it did notjust deal with sex, it confronted the real political issues and did it in an entertaining way. this new series is going to be looking at science and has got prince albert apparently is going to take shine to the famous victorian mathematician ada lovelace, one of the pioneers of the computer and charles babbage, another computer pioneers going to be in it. it is victoria, apparently does not take kindly to this. it promises to be a good way of spending sunday night. diana rigg hasjoined spending sunday night. diana rigg has joined the spending sunday night. diana rigg hasjoined the series. paul, thank you so much. we'll be back with a summary of the morning's main news injust a moment. stay with us.
8:30 am
good morning. 0n the way before the end of the programme, matt will be here with a full weather forecast. first of all, at half past eight, the summary of this morning's main use. floyd mayweather has the denial‘s conor mcgregor after ten rounds is what is picked his bid to be the most lucrative battling bugs in history. for the road mayweather who came out of retirement is reportedly guaranteed at least $100 million from the fight. mcgregor showed a 30 million. he had never boxed professionally before. mma multiple champion but a plumber‘s apprentice four years ago. we'll have more in action in the sport. for the first time labour has committed to keeping the uk in the single market and the customs union for a number of years after leaving the eu. the proposal would mean accepting the free movement of labour beyond the official brexit date of march 2019. emergency workers in texas are being deployed into the area hit by the most powerful hurricane
8:31 am
to reach the state in half a century to assess the damage it has caused. it has left buildings badly damaged. two people are known to have died. rescue efforts are being hampered by strong winds and thousands are without power. the victims of the grenfell tower tragedy will be remembered at the notting hill carnival this year. thousands of revellers along the route are expected to pause and observe a minute's silence to mark the tragedy. security for the event has been reviewed in the wake of the barcelona terror attack. more than 1 million people are expected to take to the streets in the next two days. and the weather is looking pretty good this bank holiday as well. now we can catch up with all the sport. all eyes in las vegas at 5:15am this morning, eventually starting! about lived up to expectations. the mega— fight, the super fight,
8:32 am
whatever you want to call it. my wife has just texted me. whatever you want to call it. my wife hasjust texted me. he went whatever you want to call it. my wife has just texted me. he went to tesco to buy some bread and she saw a man buying eight cans of lager, an irish man! i think they can hold their head up high because conor mcgregor was brilliant in the end. about what we thought it would be. we thought it would be a pushover, knocked out early on. but after floyd mayweather got his measure, he really took over. floyd is now 50 and nine, beating rocky mount they are no's record and he will not only retire, but trained boxers. it was interesting conor mcgregor saying after the fight, richard was saying, that he is going to go back to mma of course but he has not completely ruled out going back to boxing. and he didn't want the fight to be stopped on the tenth round. he wa nted stopped on the tenth round. he wanted to see it through to the end. at the end the referee said he was on the ropes and he was down on fitness, and that is what we have
8:33 am
got to realise. referee has a duty of care, he has got to protect him. exactly. it would have turned into a circus and they were calling it a circus and they were calling it a circus because mayweather was getting his measure but well done to conor mcgregor. and there are some fantastic floyd mayweather quotes. we gave the fans what they wanted to see and we owed it to them. the money packing our fight was seen as a dull affair. —— manny packing. tonight i chose the right dance partner to dance with. conor mcgregor, you are a hell of a star. and just when it is all over, it is good to remember how much of the trash talk was just about selling tickets. of course, it is all the show. call it a circus, freak show, it was good entertainment in the end. that is the boxing. now the football. manchester united have maintained their perfect start to the premier league season. it's now three wins out of three
8:34 am
and ten goals without conceding forjose mourinho's side. they beat leicester 2—0 at old trafford. here's nick parrott. after battering west ham and swa nsea, after battering west ham and swansea, manchester united face tougher opposition in the form of leicester. not for the first time a goalkeeper called schmeichel looked like being a hero at old trafford. the jose like being a hero at old trafford. thejose mourinho like being a hero at old trafford. the jose mourinho is like being a hero at old trafford. thejose mourinho is as widely as the foxes. substitutes marcus rashford and marouane fellaini changed its fortunes. last season united won their opening three matches but could only finish sixth, so the special one is not getting carried away yet. second season, my contract is for three seasons, so let's see at the end of the third seasonif let's see at the end of the third season if we manage to improve the clu b season if we manage to improve the club and the football team. manchester city kept in touch with their neighbours but their hard—fought their neighbours but their hard —fought 2—1 their neighbours but their hard—fought 2—1 win over bournemouth came ata hard—fought 2—1 win over bournemouth came at a price. matchwinner raheem sterling was sent off after celebrating in the crowd and will
8:35 am
miss their next match against his former club liverpool. writing's first point in the premier league is likely to be remembered only for this foul on anthony can card. it left watford down to ten men for more than an hour. but the visitors we re more than an hour. but the visitors were not able to take advantage. crystal palace appointed frank to break to make them play like his former club ajax but swansea inflicted the third straight defeat for the eagles. and west ham brought goalkeeperjoe hart to shore up their defence. newcastle had not scored this season until they put three passed the england number one. he has now been beaten ten times in just three games, leaving the hammers rock bottom. nick parrott, bbc news. just one other premier league game missing from that round—up — the goalless draw between huddersfield and southampton. there was a bit of a surprise in the scottish premiership. celtic were held to a 1—1 draw at home to saintjohnstone.
8:36 am

8:37 am
guess we bowled well in patches. we put some balls on the right area but we didn't do it consistently enough. there were too many balls for them to release the pressure and the two quys to release the pressure and the two guys batted really well. lewis hamilton will start from pole for this afternoon's belgian grand prix after smashing the lap record at spa. it's the first race back from the summer break, but the three time world champion was quickly into his groove, pipping championship leader sebastian vettel who'll start from second. it's the 68th pole of hamilton's career, equalling the all—time record of michael schumacher. britian's cal crutchlow rode beautifully in moto gp qualifying to start from third on the grid in today's big race at silverstone. three—time world champion marc marquez rode the first ever sub—two—minute lap at the track as he sped to a record—breaking pole position, edging out valentino rossi by less than a tenth of a second. and from motorbikes to pedal power. britain's chris froome has extended his lead on the eighth stage of cycling's vuelta a espana.
8:38 am
the four—time tour de france champion showed he's still in great shape attacking his main rivals on the final climb of the day three miles from the finish. frenchman julian alaphillipe took the stage win, but froome won't have minded as his advantage grew to 28 seconds. andy murray will miss the last grand slam open because of an injury to his hip. he struggled through wimbledon but he says it is too sore to start the tournament that starts tomorrow. it is the first time he has withdrawn from a grand slam and more than four years. this is actually why i didn't want to come out here. after wimbledon, you know i spoke to a lot of hip specialists andi i spoke to a lot of hip specialists and i tried resting, rehab, to try and i tried resting, rehab, to try and get myself ready, but it is too
8:39 am
sore for me to win the tournament and ultimately that is why i was here, to try and do that. u nfortu nately i here, to try and do that. unfortunately i won't be playing here this year. england women's rugby union captain sarah hunter has insisted defeat to new zealand in the world cup final will not define the success of her side. it was brilliant rugby end to end for 70 minutes. england led at the break but new zealand's superiority came through in their fitness as they dominated in the last ten minutes. there was pace, power and glass from both sides, ending inhalation for new zealand but heartbreak for england. we gave them a good game of rugby to watch with end to end stuff and a lot of tries. a very hard —fought end to end stuff and a lot of tries. a very hard—fought spectacle out there. that is what we want, and we know that is the standard of the women's game right now. wejust know that is the standard of the women's game right now. we just need other people to realise that it is
8:40 am
fantastic. i think we have probably shown that tonight. interestingly, new zealand are not a professional by new zealand are not a professional rugby team, they are still amateur. they're looking forward to getting that status and they might get it after winning the world title again. they really deserve it. the professionalism of that team, how competitive it was yesterday. the brilliance on display. it was brutal andi brilliance on display. it was brutal and i really enjoyed it. we will get more reaction from the former england captain in belfast last night. maggie alophonsi. england seem to unravel in the second half. what went wrong? england seem to unravel in the second half. what went wrong ?m england seem to unravel in the second half. what went wrong? it was a sensational game, absolutely amazing. ten tries and one penalty try, but it was a game of two halves. i hate using cliches but i have got to. in the first half,
8:41 am
england dominated. they came out, they were aggressive, they went into half—time with a lead of 17—10 but in the second half new zealand just turned it on. they retained possession, they were very clinical and they sucked england into the defensive area, around the breakdown, and new zealand were very smart. it was just a very good game and new zealand showed their class. it was a brilliant game of rugby, entertaining and relentless in its place. in terms of the good it has done for the game, this competition, will it have a long—lasting impact? definitely. i think it will leave a legacy. i mentioned it yesterday. it has been viewed in 110 countries, the most it has ever been shown in. i think the viewing figures will be brilliant. what is great is that final really was a final and those who watched it realised just how good a game it is. it was not about women or men, it wasjust good a game it is. it was not about women or men, it was just watching a good game of rugby and i think what was really pleasing is that the
8:42 am
standard has improved over the last few world cups. i really enjoyed it. talking about professional contacts, as we were, for the new zealand team, what about the england team? there was controversy because their contracts operate on a two year cycle a nd contracts operate on a two year cycle and a number of players will be left out of contract as they concentrate on the seventh game. having got this far, it is really ha rd having got this far, it is really hard for some players to take, having to go back to work and their old lives. yes, it is not easy. as of the 31st of august, their contracts come to an end. those doing sevens will have their contracts renewed and the others will retire lord macgregor back to full—time work and balance it with by. —— full—time work and balance it with rugby. —— or go back to full—time work. now that the rise of women's sport has grown, people want more investment in women's sport and after this there will be more
8:43 am
discussions to make sure that these women and hopefully many other women who go after them will get full support to be full—time athlete and be the best they can be to make sure the game is growing. the physicality of that game, those women deserve that professional support. nice to talk to you. if you enjoyed watching the game last night, there is plenty of women's rugby and club rugby around the country. it seems unfair when they have done so well. they a lwa ys when they have done so well. they always knew that would be the case, thatis always knew that would be the case, that is the argument the rfu have a lwa ys that is the argument the rfu have always made clear that it is a shame. now we can look at the weather forecast. final time this morning. bank holiday weekend for many parts of the country but before you look at that, this is the situation with this fellow harvey in texas, causing trouble. yes, it has lost hurricane status. good morning. the winds are 50 mph and it is the rain that is the real feature. this isa rain that is the real feature. this is a radar chart of the last six to
8:44 am
12 hours. lots of rain to the north and east of the storm. sunspots have seen 100 millimetres, a month's worth of rain in an hour. —— some areas have seen 100 millimetres. and we will do see the same notjust today but monday and tuesday, one metre of rain, year's worth falling over three orfour metre of rain, year's worth falling over three or four days. flooding will be ongoing here notjust this week but for weeks on end, i suspect. that is the south of the united states at the moment, thanks to harvey. if we cross the atlantic, things are much quieter. and as bank holiday weekends go, it is shaping up holiday weekends go, it is shaping up to be very nice. cloud across scotla nd up to be very nice. cloud across scotland and the south—east of northern ireland, threatening drizzle here and there with sunshine to the north west of northern ireland. some breaks in the cloud in scotland. thicker cloud in western areas will come and go through the
8:45 am
day. some sunshine but over the hills the odd spot of rain and drizzle but in east anglia and the south, the cloud we have got at the moment will break up and there will be sunshine all afternoon. 26 the high temperature. even in northern ireland with a bit of cloud we could get up to 21.23 ireland with a bit of cloud we could get up to 21. 23 in leeds for the second test match between england and the west indies. similar conditions if you are heading to the leeds carnival. warmer further south polar not in your carnival with cloud breaking up and blue skies on sunday and into monday as well with temperatures around 28. on sunday, we will seek the best weather in the south and the east. the cloud increases in the north at the west bringing outbreaks of rain on monday morning. temperatures to start bank holiday monday for many in the mid teens. it looks like high pressure is holding on to the south and east for the bank holiday. across england and wales, the best sunshine will be away from northern and western coasts, where there will be drizzle.
8:46 am
some wet and windy weather spreads south and east with temperatures in the teens. the further south and east you are, it will be a bank holiday monday of dreams. blue skies, light winds and temperatures soaring to 28, 80 two fahrenheit. enjoy the rest of your bank holiday. -- 82 enjoy the rest of your bank holiday. —— 82 fahrenheit. thank you! it was the emissions scandal that affected 11 million vehicles worldwide when it was found volkswagen had fitted software in diesel engines that could detect when they were being tested, changing the performance accordingly to improve results. later this week, new tougher tests will be introduced which all cars must pass before they can be driven on uk roads. let's get more detail from steve gooding, director of motoring research at the rac foundation. thank you forjoining us from brighton. can you explain what the tougher tests will be, please? one of the things that the volkswagen scandal revealed was quite how big a
8:47 am
gap there was between the performance of cars in everyday use on the road, and what showed up in the laboratory testing that they have got to pass right now. for some time, we have been pressing as a country in the international forums to get a new type of test introduced, that would actually reflect the driving that we do in the real world. that is what is coming in this coming friday and it will come in with tighter requirements at the key thing is there is a drive cycle that reflects real—world driving, and that is what we have been waiting to see. that is not the equivalent of putting a car ona not the equivalent of putting a car on a treadmill, rolling road, it is strapping the kit to the car and taking it out and driving it on normal roads. is that right? absolutely. up until now it is the rolling road that has been used, putting the car in a laboratory. the idea is sensible in its way, having a standardised test that can be repeated across europe, wherever the car is being made, so everyone can
8:48 am
meet the same standard through the same test. it is much harder to reflect that in a real—world cycle when we are driving around an actual roads. the fact of the matter is thatis roads. the fact of the matter is that is where we use our cars and where we need them to perform, and thatis where we need them to perform, and that is where we are breathing in the emissions that we need to control. the volkswagen scandal, as everybody knows, cost the company an awful lot of money. can people be reasonably confident that that kind of thing doesn't go on in the motoring industry and companies will not try and find a way to get round these new tests? i think it will a lwa ys these new tests? i think it will always be something of a temptation for engineers if they are faced with a test to pass the test rather than to think more broadly about our vehicle will be used and what the obligations are of that cycle. —— how a vehicle will be used. i think it will be harder to cheat something
8:49 am
that involves slow—moving urban traffic rather than faster moving rows and then bringing the vehicle back in. i think we are all hoping that this will be a more secure and trustworthy test. steve gooding, from rac, thank you for your time. the conor mcgregor and floyd mayweather fight has been one of the most hyped things of the summer. in the end it was the class and skill of undefeated mayweather which shone through in what could be the richest boxing match in history. was it a victory for sport or the advertisers? certainly good for the boxers. frank warren, the boxing promoter, will give us his take this morning. hello. how are you?” promoter, will give us his take this morning. hello. how are you? i am fine. did you enjoy it? it was what i inspected. a guy who had never had a professional boxing life in his
8:50 am
life, against the greatest boxer of his generation who has seen better days. what it was. people bought into it and they made a lot of money and god bless them for that but please don't call it the fight of the century. it might have been the biggest money fight but not the biggest money fight but not the biggest fight. did you see anything technically from conor mcgregor that surprised you? not at all! i have never seen him box before. i have seen little snippets that were released publicising the fight and i thought if thatis that is what he is bringing to the table, he has not got much chance of winning. ididn't table, he has not got much chance of winning. i didn't think you would winning. i didn't think you would win the british title and beat bradley, but he has got a big brain, a big heartand he bradley, but he has got a big brain, a big heart and he is tough, fighting irishman, but not a boxer. all the people who bought into this and paid to watch, are they fall is sucked into the hype or what? know,
8:51 am
in some ways it was a car crash. people watch things because they wa nt to people watch things because they want to see something that would surprise them but i never thought it would happen. there was a big mma following from people who got behind their man but the bottom line was it was never ever going to be what i would call a true boxing match. it never could be that. it is no more than anybody with any sense could expect to happen with mcgregor nevin had a professional boxing fights before. as a promoter, surely you would love to be involved in as event like this. of course! i would like 1% of the action! of course i am not saying that. floyd mayweather was the best fighter of his generation but that was a while ago and he is a0 and he retired the two yea rs and he is a0 and he retired the two years and he was not quite as good as he has been in the past. floyd is as he has been in the past. floyd is a clever guy. the fights that he picks. and he knew this guy after a few rounds would not have gas in the
8:52 am
tank. he took risks that i have never seen him take before, going on the offence when normally he backs off. he is a counterpuncher but he went on the offence. he has not stopped anybody since ricky hatton and that is all you need to know. if he was fighting somebody like terrence broadfoot, it would have been a different fight entirely. you cannot see how great floyd mayweather was from beating conor mcgregor. conor mcgregor was fantastic in terms of his ability as a boxer but let's not turn it into something it is not. and good luck to them making the money. they are old enough to spend their money. that is entirely up to them. a lot of people are happy with what they have seen. the clever people will have seen. the clever people will have listened to it for free on bbc five live! what have they bought it for? they shouldn't be wasting the public‘s money on that. it isn't a boxing match. you are kidding me!
8:53 am
you don't think there was massive interest in this match so that people who cannot afford to pay per view wouldn't have access to read otherwise? i don't agree with that. 0ur otherwise? i don't agree with that. our greatest amateur boxer, two gold medals, nicola adams, a woman, and they have never covered one of her fights. despite me continually asking. they have never done it. answer me that. she is british. and the other fighters were american and irish. that is typical bbc. you should be sticking up for it, women against men. a woman boxer and our most successful 0lympian and they have never ever covered one of their fights. they say they don't have the money to do it and yet they can take everybody off to the united states to cover an event, not a boxing match, an event. to be honest, i don't have a timetable of programmes that we have done covering nicola adams. i know! that we have done covering nicola adams. i know i have interviewed many times. i was not expecting to
8:54 am
have the fight of the morning with you this morning! but it is great to have your company and your thoughts. thank you, frank. enjoy your day. have your company and your thoughts. thank you, frank. enjoy your daym isa thank you, frank. enjoy your daym is a good job you two were not side—by—side on the sofa! is a good job you two were not side-by-side on the sofa! frank warren's thoughts on all sorts of things and notjust the so—called fight of the century this morning. you may have seen the macmillan brave the shave campaign, people shaving their heads to support people they know with cancer. we are going to talk tojenny and her daughter. they have both shaved their heads. how are you feeling?” am feeling 0k. their heads. how are you feeling?” am feeling ok. how does your mamma lurk now she has had her head shaved? she lurk now she has had her head shaved ? she looks lurk now she has had her head shaved? she looks really beautiful. it is nice. you do like it, don't

8:56 am
like ours. we made a big thing of it and it was fun. seren had a bob at the same time but we knew it was going to fall out quite quickly. it didn't last week. it was quite an awkward conversation because she was born with a lot of hair. her hair was passed her waist and beautiful. she is known as the girl with her, the little mermaid, you know. she is known as the girl with her, the little mermaid, you knowm will all come out. —— it will all grow out. it will. no hair, don't care. that is our motto. how is the family coping? we are coping. it is sinking in and we are taking it day by day, which i find difficult because i look years ahead. taking a step back and doing things day by day is what we are trying to do, keeping positive. seren helps the most probably because she is
8:57 am
amazing. ironically, she helps us get through. the photographs that we can see, the famous photographer rankin did a shoot with you. can see, the famous photographer rankin did a shoot with youm can see, the famous photographer rankin did a shoot with you. it was amazing and it made her feel really special and we had a great time and we had lots of chats. did you feel like a supermodel? she said she wants to be famous, so it was a good place to start. what an amazing record to have of yourjourney. is that your dad? he looks very happy and smiley. and we have got a facebook page, seren shooting star, to raise awareness of ourjourney, and we have had a lot of support through that, and it is great to have those nice messages. to anybody thinking of doing it, braving the shaved, what is your advice? do it. it isa shaved, what is your advice? do it. it is a great cause and it raises money for lots of different
