mr election and orders a new one. mr kenyatta was declared the winner in last month's poll. now for a look at what else is coming up on bbc news. bin workers have returned to the picket lines as strike action in birmingham resumed after a dealfell apart. wayne rooney is charged with drink—driving. as harry potterfans will know, today is the 1st of september, the day the young witches and wizards of britain had from king's cross to hogwarts for the beginning of a new school year. now it is time for sportsday. hello. i'm olly foster at the bbc sport centre. here's what's coming up on sportsday. there's a lot at stake in the international break. england and scotland play tonight.
should be an easy three points for northern ireland but they promise not to be complacent against san marino. and it's finals day in the kia super league. the defending champions, southern vipers, have made an imperious start against western storm. also coming up... the cheaters from south africa. it is a new era in the new pro 14. —— cheetahs. good evening. lot's coming up in the programme to set you up for the weekend. it could be make or break for the home nations over the next few days of world cup qualifying. all four can still make it to russia next summer. we'll have the latest from scotland, northern ireland and wales in a moment.
but england are in malta. kick off in valetta just over an hour away. let's hear from gareth southgate was that this is the first match in the post wayne rooney era. he decided to retire from international football. who will wear the captain's are bad? we have focused too much on wayne rooney in particular over the last few years and we must start to build a more resilient group of leaders, allowing people to take responsibility. for me it is not the most important decision. the more important thing is trying to build the group. they must react in the right way collectively. we are expecting the team news from
the letter to come through in the next 15 minutes or so. a lot of speculation about who will be given the captain's speculation about who will be given the ca ptain‘s armband speculation about who will be given the captain's armband for that there have been five different captains with his eight matches in charge. it is pointing towardsjordan henderson although harry kane has been tipped as well. while we were talking about wayne rooney and who takes over the leadership and mantle, he has been making some unwanted headlines today. he was stopped in a car in wilmslow in the early hours of this morning. he has been subsequently charged by cheshire police with drink—driving. he is being released on bail. he is due to appear at stockport magistrates‘ court on september the 18th, the day after everton september the 18th, the day after eve rto n fa ce september the 18th, the day after everton face manchester united. i think some details have just coming of the england team. joe hart, kyle walker starting. ryan bertrand.
of the england team. joe hart, kyle walkerstarting. ryan bertrand. gary cahill and philjones at the centre of defence. jake livermore is in midfield. jordan henderson as well. oxlade—chamberlain after just completing his move. raheem sterling the manchester city man. dele alli linking up with his team—mate, harry kane up top. i do not know who will captain the team but that is the england team in the letter tonight. whereas england appear to be cruising through qualification for another major championship, scotland look like they are stuttering towards another free summer next year. they are 11th in the group six points behind england. with four games to go, they are still alive but can‘t really afford any more slip ups starting tonight in lithuania. alastair lamont reports from vilnius. iamat
i am at the national stadium in film yea rs. i am at the national stadium in film years. it is a pretty small stadiums as you can probably tell over my shoulder. the capacity just as you can probably tell over my shoulder. the capacityjust over 5000. 3000 scots are inspected tonight as we are still taking official confirmation of the scotla nd tea m official confirmation of the scotland team but it does sound as if matt phillips of west brom will be part of a front three. a carnival atmosphere here. for once, not entirely the result of the exuberance of visiting scotland fans. the day of celebrations and festivities adds colour to an already charming city. this much more than the football has the locals in high spirits. if tonight‘s game isa locals in high spirits. if tonight‘s game is a sideshow, no one has told the national manager. we're going to follow our dream. it is a big day for us. not many games in the year of that calibre we have got in this country. this'll be a very different
tea m country. this'll be a very different team from the one at the start of the campaign. in some areas there are more options and some less. on the day you want to try to get more coming through in the game. the manager believes this could be enough for a second—place finish. the reality is that scotland have very little room for error. the campaign has been flawed. two wins, two draws and two defeats. the fans have been start of major tournament football. if that is to enter victory tonight is a must. the other thing to consider is that scotland‘s main rivals for second place, slovakia and slovenia, both play each other tonight. a draw would probably suit scotland‘s best as
they seek to claw back the advantage both countries have over the scots. euro 2016 was northern ireland‘s first major championship for 30 years and they are well placed to secure at least a play—off spot for the world cup. they are behind runaway leaders germany but should consolidate second place away at san marino. joel taggart is there for us. kick—off isjust kick—off is just an hour or so away in san mouinho. michael o‘neill has picked an attacking side. —— san marino. kyle lafferty and connor washington will start. jonny evans got after the drama around his possible transferred deadline move will also play. john o‘neill will be alongside me as ever. it is inconceivable to think northern ireland will do anything other than win this game. providing they are not sloppy. they have lost every
game in the group, scored one goal and conceded 30. the one thing you wa nt to and conceded 30. the one thing you want to do is to try to win your game as early as possible. perhaps ta ke game as early as possible. perhaps take the likes of steven davis of the pitch so he does not get a second yellow. not only steven davis, there are another couple in the field as well. maybe get two all three of them off if it gets that far. it could beach and is game if the result goes for us in the czech republic and germany win. the result goes for us in the czech republic and germany winm the result goes for us in the czech republic and germany win. it is about starting the game well, isn‘t it? it is. if you do not get the first goal you have to be patient. i do not think we will have any problems tonight. famous last words. you heard the england team news. jordan henderson will captain england tonight. gareth southgate choosing the armband for him tonight. wales may have been surprise
semi—finallists at the euros last year but they are up against it in their qualification group four points behind the top two of serbia and the republic of ireland. chris coleman‘s side are are level on points with austria who they face in cardiff tomorrow. none of our boys will be phased by tomorrow night. we have been here before. we have been in situations where we have to and we must get the job done. we had been here before and our players has not disappointed. never easy. how long will we wait again to be in this situation? years and years. here we are again. the -- the draw‘s has been made for the first round in the women‘s champions league. of the 32, there are three british teams involved super league champions manchester city reached the semi—finals last season. they face austrians st polten. chelsea were runners—up to city in the league and face german league runners—up bayern munich.
the scottish champions, glasgow city, have a trip to kazakhstan and kazygurt. it‘s a knockout from the start, the first legs are in the first week of october. the dust has just about settled after the premier league transfer window closed last night. it didn‘t quite deliver the promised deadline day dramas with alexis sanchez, riyad mahrez and ross barkley all staying put but, in the final reckoning, these are the big three ranked by net—spend across the summer. manchester city are almost £131 million in the red. manchester united aren‘t too far behind, £127 million down. remember romelu lukaku set them back 75 million and chelsea‘s net spend is minus £745 million.
the other bottom of the scale and the other bottom of the scale and the other bottom of the scale and the other clubs in the premier league that did pretty good business. the fans would like to have spent a little bit more. totte n ha m have spent a little bit more. tottenham worth £10 million to the good. they did a lot more. they might have spent 80 million but they have sold £90 million worth of players. arsenal, that could be £77 million to the good had they got rid of alexis sanchez to manchester city. arsenal £17 million up. swa nsea swansea are sitting very pretty. gylfi sigurdsson for 45 million and llorente to spurs for 12 million yesterday. swa nsea swansea have an extra 30 million in the bank after all their business. it was another record
breaking summer window with £1.11 billion spent, over 200 million on deadline day. there may be a few more zeros on the cheques being written but has the pattern of spending actually changed? pretty much as we anticipated that we thought it would be a record and it has been. again a few of the club is particularly driving that. but four biggest spenders spending half the combined total. one thing we have picked up on now we have looked at this 15 the window has been going, in any given year the big clu bs going, in any given year the big clubs spend between a fifth and a third of the revenue on transfers. this summer, 30%. right there in the range. while the numbers are startling to some people and a big increase on before, it is in line with revenues going up. if we were
to look outside the premier league, paris st germain and the spending of the transfer window has really raised a lot of eyebrows. they had the record fee they spent on neymar a few weeks ago. uefa have, in the last hour, opened an investigation into their financial fairplay compliance. our reporter has ball. normally when uefa look at financial fairplay it is retrospective analysis. here they have gone on the front foot and say they will look into paris st germain‘s financial fairplay compliance due to their recent transfer activities. by that they mean the world record signing of neymar from barcelona for around £198 million but also the loan deal from monaco which has been presented with an that is either as a loan deal with an option to buy at the end but many think it is an obligation to buy and they have used
it as obligation to buy and they have used itasa obligation to buy and they have used it as a way to navigate around financial fairplay and regulations. u efa financial fairplay and regulations. uefa has today said it will focus on the compliance of the club but the break even requirements that it clear light of its recent transfer activities. that break even requirement is the fact that all clu bs requirement is the fact that all clubs in european competition have to live within their means. they‘re not meant to spend more than they earn. uefa says it is not going to give any more comment on this. an interesting paragraph of their statement said financial fairplay is a crucial governments mechanism which aims to ensure the financial sustainability of european club football. they are trying to keep every clu b football. they are trying to keep every club on a level playing field. at the time of the neymar transfer, the p56 at the time of the neymar transfer, the psg president‘s —— president, told the associated press about whether they would comply with financial fairplay could go and have a coffee, don‘t worry about us. we
are in good hands. thank you. i‘m sure we hear more about us —— that story and the estimation into psg. it‘s going to be another exciting domestic rugby union season. it all starts tonight. and the pro12 has become the pro1li, with two south african sides — the southern kings and the cheetahs — being drafted into the competition following their removal from the southern hemisphere super rugby tournament. the cheetahs, the south african domestic cup winners from bloemfontein, are involved in one of the first matches this evening as they travel to ulster. we area we are a team that is used to touring. we have three to four weeks on tour plus a tour to argentina and singapore orjapan. touring is not new to us. the one big difference we have noticed as we do not have the time differences that we had between us time differences that we had between us and new zealand. travel has been
easier. we are in a starting point at the moment. we want improvement and we want the guys to be competitive. that is one thing we look to do for the 15 competitive players on the field. if we can achieve that, by the end of the season, hopefully we will be where cheetahs rugby needs to be. it'll be interesting to see what brand of by interesting to see what brand of rugby they will bring to the pro 1a. the rugby union premiership also sta rts the rugby union premiership also starts tonight. exeter chiefs are the defending champions, are in action. they won the title with an extra—time penalty in the final against wasps last season. the top 11 teams from last season have been joined by newly—promoted london irish, with saracens the bookies favourites to regain the title. two matches this evening, including the chiefs‘ trip to gloucester. what we learned last season is the way to do it. that is the day by day grind and taking things into your own hands and making it about you. what we cannot do is sit and look at them. they are a good side, they are at home for the bags of energy first game. first game in the premiership
season against us, the current champions. there are so many reasons why it can be really mention the charge for them. and they‘re just going to happen to deal with it. it‘s another formula one weekend, and mercedes dominated practice today for the italian grand prix. tom clarkson reports from monza. this marks the end of the european season of the 20 17th world championship. on the evidence of anything we have seen so far at monza is it all about mercedes. lewis hamilton fastest in the first practice session and valterri bottas fastest in the second practice session. sebastian vettel is third fastest all day today. with him leading lewis hamilton by seven points in the world championship. it is all to play for this weekend. what were the gap be after the race on sunday? it‘s been a good day for chris froome at the vuelta a espana, he still leads the race after crashing yesterday. 7th place on stage 13 means that he keeps his 59—second lead
with eight stages to go. he finished in the leading group along with his nearest rival, vincenzo nibali. italy‘s matteo trentin took the stage win. natalie powell has won britain‘s second bronze medal at the world judo championships in budapest after she beat former world champion marhinder verkerk from the netherlands. kyle eastmond is on court now. he is the last remaining british player in the last remaining british player in the single store. he is playing dennis shapovalov. it‘s finals day in the kia women‘s super league with the western storm taking on southern vipers in hove. the storm had a three—wicket win over surrey stars earlier this afternoon. this was the final ball of the stars‘ innings. they made 100—7 in their 20 overs, which didn‘t prove to be enough. despite a number of storm wickets falling early on in their reply, stafanie taylor steadied the ship and hit the winning runs thanks to this little bit of good fortune.
they were closing in on victory anyway. stephanie taylor played so well in the semifinal. a couple of wickets had fallen since then. southern vipers currently 99—3. staying with the cricket... nottinghamshire can complete the one—day double tomorrow if they win the t20 blast at edgbaston. they‘ve already won the one day cup this season and face hampshire in one of the semi—finals. the winner meets either home side birmingham or glamorgan — the county who are making their first appearance at finals day since 200a. after winning the quarterfinal,
seeing smiles on people‘s faces and the level ofjoy that is around. and the level ofjoy that is around. and the fans as well. it will be fantastic. i know the guys will be having a full crack at it. i am sure we have a great chance. some great cricket coming up at lord‘s next week and the final test between england and the west indies. it is the decider. we could also seejimmy andersonjoin the 500 the decider. we could also seejimmy anderson join the 500 club. only two other fast bowlers have achieved that. only two other fast bowlers have passed that total but anderson already has one eye on this winter‘s ashes series in australia. it isa it is a really special thing. we have a much more settled squad the me had last time. fantastic players
in ourteam. some me had last time. fantastic players in our team. some brilliant talent. i‘m sure we can give them a good run for their money. so many people want to get on the plane to australia. extra pressure of being a decider. it is not often you get in this position, a test series where it is a final. the extra pressure will show a lot about people‘s characters. great britain boasts multiple champions in their chosen sports, liam heath achieved the grand slam in his last weekend. last sunday in the czech republic, the 33 —year—old sprint canoeist won his first world title in the k1— 200 metres. that completed the set alongside his olympic and european gold medals. hejoined me earlier, here in the bbc sport centre, and with his first child on the way in the next week, he told me that he‘s having to think hard about his future, and that might not defend his olympic gold in tokyo.
i had to think about where i wanted to go next. you build targets in an summer to go. i‘m lucky i have completed those targets and i can put more targets in place. essentially i‘m not ready to leave the sport. another big event on the horizon. my first—born child riding ina horizon. my first—born child riding in a couple of weeks‘ time... will make a lot of decisions for me, i think. i will see where i fit in and where i want to go. you cannot commit to it then? i need to see what the future holds. it is a sense of achievement. it is quite surreal. it is not often that an athlete sets out with a lot of targets for the season. to come the other end is an incredible feeling. is the sport
well set up? there is a good platform —— platform to see how good they can be. you're trying to promote as much as possible. it is not a well—known sport in the uk. british canoeing is trying to channel a lot of funding into grassroots, getting people enjoying the sport. the weekend, 1600 of the best young athletes in the country have descended on loughborough university for the 2017 school games. now it its 12th year, the games are an opportunity for future sporting stars to test themselves against the u.k.‘s best. they‘re following in illustrious footsteps too and as ben croucher has been finding out, it‘s more than just a big old sports day. johnny peacock gets the win. what a massivejump johnny peacock gets the win. what a massive jump that was! johnson thomson, that is a season‘s. massive jump that was! johnson thomson, that is a season's. some of the most recognisable faces in british sport. this was the springboard for their success. it
has taken the best young athletes in the country and pitted them against each other in a big, multisport event. what this does is give them the opportunity to learn lessons about multisport you would not otherwise get and we got to win major championships. everyone has an accreditation. whilst the school games is centred around sport, it replicates what an athlete might experience at an olympic or paralympic games. there is an opening ceremony, and athletes village. they even get taught about anti—doping. village. they even get taught about anti-doping. once you learn it hit a lwa ys anti-doping. once you learn it hit always sticks with you. i am glad i learnt about that. it is about key bits of information and start yours do to keep extra safe. whilst athletes are used to be sporting side it is the values of integrity and honesty that the school games tries to drill home with former
olympians and paralympian is helping out as mentors. as for the competition it is a must as good as it gets. you see these people are new thing, i feel it gets. you see these people are new thing, ifeel quite it gets. you see these people are new thing, i feel quite special. you feel quite valued. for me it motivated me a bit. i thought, feel quite valued. for me it motivated me a bit. ithought, i feel quite valued. for me it motivated me a bit. i thought, i am here, i want to compete and try to win custom if they had this when i was younger i would have gone to my first multisport games with having some experience. it is a once—in—a—lifetime opportunity. after a couple of times it is a fantastic springboard. before we go, let‘s quickly remind you where you can see and hear coverage of the weekend‘s big sporting events across the bbc there‘s radio commentary of tonight‘s world cup qualifiers on five live, radio scotland and radio ulster. full race coverage of the italian grand prix on 5live on sunday. finally he‘s known for his attacking instincts on the field, well turns out lionel messi is good natured off it.
after making the day of one football fan. the five time world footballer of the year, was heading into his team hotel with his national team mates. when an excited fan tred to get an autograph and a picture with his idol. the boy is hauled away — but messi spots him. and it all had a happy ending. that security guard will think twice next time. i‘m sure he got a yellow card as well. from all of us at the bbc sports centre, have a good weekend. good night. good evening. the first day of september in the first day of major logical autumn. it started on a fine note. for many of us we have blue sky and sunshine. this image was taken in
sky and sunshine. this image was ta ken in bristol. sky and sunshine. this image was taken in bristol. some of them are bringing showers. —— some of the clouds. a few showers in eastern england but most places are looking drive. into the evening we will see the direct of one or two showers across parts of eastern england. most of us will be dry with clear spells and light winds. the risk that it will be quite chilly. double figures in the towns and cities. in the more rural spots in the close to freezing. in the south we will see four degrees also in the countryside. a fresh start to saturday morning. sunshine from the word go. the chance of a few showers. many of us will avoid them. a lot of dry, decent looking whether through much of the day on saturday. for scotland a fine day to campus at temperatures round 17th, 18th in the
warmer spots. —— to come with temperatures around 17, 18. across much of northern england, down through wells, a lot of dry weather to be seen. a few showers popping up across south eastern england. most of us will avoid the showers. perhaps the chance of a few isolated ones. it will feel warm in the sunshine. into saturday evening that is when we will see the rain arriving in the west. quite heavy for a time. quite the breeze developing with the arrival of that rain. it would be a martyr night with temperatures around 12, 13. as we head through the day on sunday, it is this frontal system moving in from the west that brings us all that wet weather. in the east of the uk it should stay dry for quite a large part of the day. still sunshine to be seen in the east. gradually the wet and windy weather works its way slowly eastwards
across much of the country. in the middle part of the afternoon there will be patchy rain. goodbye. this is bbc news. the headlines at 7:00pm. gas suspends nine employees, after claims of abuse and assaults on detainees at an immigration removal centre. nine people have failed my standards, the establishment‘s standards and the company‘s standards, we need to reflect on that, learn from that, and see what we‘re going to do. cardinal cormac murphy—o‘connor, the former archbishop of westminster, has died. kenya‘s supreme court has annulled the result of last month‘s presidential election, and ordered a new one to be held within 60 days. the former england football captain wayne rooney, has been charged with drink driving. also in the next hour... more than 11100 people dead after monsoon rains. the impact of floods in south asia becomes clearer —
