10:31 pm
unfortunately i didn't. boxer cheavon clarke, is one of great britain's big hopes for a medal at the next olympics. and already he could be labelled the lazarus of the boxing world. and notjust because he's able to get back up off the canvas. the jamaican—born boxer has been impaled... poisoned... and brought back from death — twice. despite that, he's now at the world championships in hamburg and competes in the quarter—finals tomorrow. our olympic sports reporter david mcdaid has more. as britain's top amateur heavyweight, cheavon clarke is used to taking blows but this is a man, it seems, not even the grim reaper can keep down. you know how people say yolo, i don't believe in that. yolo means you only live once but he has come back from the dead not once but twice, those dices with death came aged 18 and eight, the first when he fell onto a metal spike in the second when his appendix burst.

the doctor said to my mum i am a lucky young man. they said during the operation i flat lined on the table. i came back to life, fair to say god didn't want me! i don't know, sometimes i look back and i think i've come a long way, but then, like, ijust brush it off because bass yesterday, you can't live on yesterday. cheav may be keen to downplay his past but back at home in graves and his friends feel his experiences have given him an edge. if that's happened to you, then you've gone through that and survived it twice and been clinically dead twice, i think your outlook on life can only be more positive, invincibility, it has helped him so much in boxing because that mentality he has going forward is allowing him to knock people out. one thing cheav does say is he has learned not to plan too far ahead,
10:33 pm
except, that is, when it comes to the next olympics. yeah, i want to go there, i want to do damage and i wa nt to go there, i want to do damage and i want to win gold, make everyone proud and again, inspire people. yeah, gold medal, olympics. and come tokyo 2020 you get the feeling it's going to take more than just a few done a couple of killer punches to stop him. bbc news, gravesend. it has been an inspiring story already and it looks like he could be about to write another chapter in it. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
10:34 pm
bringing us tomorrow. with me arejohn crowley, managing editor of newsweek media group and the broadcaster lynn faulds wood. lovely to see you. we will get on with our chat in a moment. first off, a reminder of what some of the front pages will look like tomorrow morning. the telegraph says that the brexit talks between the uk and the eu have descended into a slanging match with the eu's chief negotiator, michel barnier being called ‘unhelpful‘. whereas the times picks up the frustration of the other side in its headline: ‘it‘s time to get serious, brussels tells britain'. the ft says that theresa may is set for disappointment this week so the paper claims, the japanese government won't rush
10:35 pm
into free—trade talks with the uk. the metro reports that the driver, accused of killing eight people in a motorway crash on the m1, was twice over the drink—drive limit. the lead in the express is that arthritis sufferers, who take ibuprofen for pain relief, are greater risk of high blood are at greater risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. the daily mail highlights the case of a five—year—old christian, of a five—year—old christian girl, who it says, was forced to live with muslim foster carers. that is some of our front pages. let's kick—off. we start with the telegraph. it has all been about brexit today, it is round three of the talks and britain is not happy with michel barnier. the talks and britain is not happy with michel barnierlj the talks and britain is not happy with michel barnier. i don't think this has descended into a slanging match, it started off a slanging match, it started off a slanging match, remember boris telling them they could whistle for money and michel barnier, who strikes me as
10:36 pm
being a very urbane, great example of somebody who is calm under pressure, he said the only sound i can hear is the ticking clock. we don't seem to be getting anywhere any fast —— very fast command to have yet another slanging match, there is also tough words being used, such small print on the front of the telegraph i have to put on my glasses. a senior source in britain says michel barnier‘s attack is inconsistent, illjudged, ill considered and unhelpful. what cards have we got to play in this game at the moment? it seems to me that michel barnier is saying, show us your hand, and we are saying, no, we can't show you are a handful stop what was the phrase david davis used? constructive what was the phrase david davis used ? constructive ambiguity. what was the phrase david davis used? constructive ambiguity. the i'iews used? constructive ambiguity. the news is taking a pop at him because he accused britain of ambiguity today. i think there is a bit of mudslinging going on. we were told
10:37 pm
la st mudslinging going on. we were told last year to take back control, we didn't quite realised that this hard negotiating phase which we are in now, it is tricky, and whether you are a brexiteer or remain, whether you agree or not, there is two very men staring at each other down the barrel, it is not thinly veiled taunts, they are stabbing each other in the front and it is all rather unseemly, to be honest. but also they should do it away from the public gaze, if humanly possible, because this doesn't strike me as helpful. i don't know what our cards are and i'm not absolutely sure we've got too many, because we've come at this unexpectedly and we we re come at this unexpectedly and we were not really prepared for it, and they are saying things like, michel barnier is saying, we will be less secure because of brexit and a british voice is saying that is risible nonsense. i don't think it's a risible nonsense. we will have to give leave the european defence agency, europol and then all the
10:38 pm
french have to do is say we're not going to look after calais and dunkirk, we are just going to open the gates and let them all come through to britain and it's your problem of the migrants want to come to britain. you mentioned boris johnson and wesselingh. i don't know if you picked up on the interview on radio for them i think it was yesterday, where he did concede, did say that britain would have to meet, we will have to meet our legal obligations when he was pressed, bike, ithink obligations when he was pressed, bike, i think it was mishal hussein, about the divorce bill. what do you make of that? there seems to be an a cce pta nce make of that? there seems to be an acceptance that we have to pay. will that open up the negotiations and the eu will say, let's move ahead. michel barnier is saying there are three pillars, three separation agreements that need to be done, the first on the divorce bill, which has ranged from 100 million euros, the ft reported a few months ago, which is clearly not acceptable for the uk government, coming down to 30 or 40.
10:39 pm
there is also the issue of northern ireland, the 310 miles border that the eu says must be solved before you get into the nitty—gritty of association, and that is obviously very close to the heart of people in northern ireland. my family come from there. people are extremely worried about it. the last thing, one more thing, they want to agree on, the eu says they want to agree oi'i on, the eu says they want to agree on the fate of the citizens here in the uk from the eu and i think there is1 million britons in the eu, what happens to their status as well? it is unseemly. this is really... this is unseemly. this is really... this is mudslinging. they should come it all down. let's turn to the huffington post because we continue with brexit. the headline here is this idea of a messy divorce.
10:40 pm
barnier has always said we are going too slowly and i think having an election that cost us 120 million or something in the middle of all of this when we should just have been cranking on, the decision has been taken, get on with it, don't keep looking, which is the way it looks to me is happening in britain as if we are not really getting to the point. and, of course, we don't blame them for saying, right, we wa nt blame them for saying, right, we want you... at the moment you pay towards a lot of the european institutions and projects we are working on and you can't suddenly cut off, you agree to them so you should pay towards them and the british are saying we are being made to pay twice because we are trying to pay twice because we are trying to leave the single market and we are still being made to pay into it. at the moment there is a stalemate. but who blinks first? that is what the constructive ambiguity phrase that david davis has come out with is true, you don't want to reveal all of your hand
