crewmembers missing after a fishing vessel capsized last night. it is time to catch up with today's sport news. russia's anti doping agency, rusada, says that remarks reportedly from its acting director general about doping were distorted and taken out of context. in interviews with the new york times, it had seemed that for the first time, russian officials had admitted the existence of a doping operation. now they say the words were taken out of context. began speed to our sports correspondent richard conway for more. what has been said and what is happening? these comments came in a piece for the new york times. the current head of russia's anti—doping agency is reported to have told the new york times it was an institutional conspiracy, seemingly the first time
1:16 pm
any admission has been made by a russian official over those allegations of widespread doping amongst its sportsmen and women. there has been a quick reaction from russia today, firstly from the kremlin who said they would investigate and then said there was no state involvement at all, reiterating that line, of any doping by russian athletes. there was then a statement the comments had been taken out of context and has reserved the like that matter they have reserved the right to take legal action. nevertheless, these claims sure once again that russia remains on the fringes of the international sporting community, given the very strong claims and evidence outlined in professor richard mcevoy and's report earlier this year in which he outlined, in his words, institutional corruption had taken place within the russian sporting firmament and that 1000

russian athletes had been involved ina russian athletes had been involved in a cover—up. lots of backtracking, as you say, but where does that leave russia at the moment in terms of global sport? russian track and field athletes are still banned from international competition by the iaaf. that remains in place. there seems to be some doubt about when they will be reintegrated, the world championships take place in london in 2017. you'll have to see if they will be back in time for that. we have two high—profile winter sports events removed from russia in recent weeks, that is a sign of the pariah status some sports federations hold russia in now. russia has to be integrated self but there is seemingly no contrition, given the evidence against it, so we will have to see how the state takes it forward from this point. it is

maintaining it has no state involvement in doping and any problems were at an individual level. the sporting bodies are taking a different view. thank you forjoining us. swansea city hope to have a new manager in place by monday — with manchester united legend ryan giggs and current wales manager chris coleman the leading candidates. it follows the sacking of bob bradley last night. the new manager will be the club's fourth of 2016 and giggs has been linked with the club before. ryan giggs was interviewed for the job and bradley was appointed in october so was overlooked on that occasion and we do understand that swa nsea still clea n on the manchester united legend. he has not managed in his career yet but he has some coaching experience with manchester united. the other candidates and wales manager chris coleman and former leicester boss nigel pearson and the x birmingham boss.
1:19 pm
ryan giggs is the early favourite. the fifa president gianni infantino says the world's football federations are "overwhelmingly in favour" of plans for a a8—team world cup. earlier this month, the head of the sport's governing body outlined his vision for an expanded tournament comprising of 16 groups of three teams. the top two in each group would progress to the knockout stages. a decision is expected injanuary but even if approved is unlikely to take effect before 2026. that is all of the sport for now, more later this afternoon. japanese play ministers shinzo abe has offered his see and everlasting condolences to the victims of his country's attack on pearl harbour in 18a1. speaking after a visit to the uss arizona memorial, mr abe said the horrors of war must never be repeated. while japan correspondent reports. voiceover: it has taken 75 years

1:21 pm
to remember pearl harbor, but today president obama called on americans to take a different lesson from this place. even when hatred burns hottest, even when the tug of tribalism is at its most primal, we must resist the urge to turn inward, we must resist the urge to demonise those who are different. it was a directjibe at his successor, donald trump, who has been accused of stoking hatreds against everybody from muslims to mexicans. for mr abe, too, there is deep concern about what will happen to japan's most important partnership when mr trump enters the white house in 23 days' time. nhs hospitals have made more money than ever

1:24 pm
happy memories of her working with c three po. i am not dress like this in the movies. —— working with c3p0. to work with the gold faced... she did, i am remembering, to work with the gold faced... she did, iam remembering, she switched me off at the end of empire strikes act. she thought that was a joke! it was in the switch —— script, she found the off button. in terms of her acting career, she also referred to herself as a writer, and that became a big part of her life come in terms of the acting, did it bother her or did she accept it had been a gift that came along at the age of 20? yes, what a gift, 2a the next a0 yea rs. yes, what a gift, 2a the next a0 years. it is a good question, some actors do resent being known for something back in the day. do i mind being known as c3p0? i am so proud
1:25 pm
and grateful for the gift she and i got back then from george lucas. we both made it our all in different ways. i don't think she minded for a minute. she was quietly proud and more satisfied, i think, because she was a very skilled writer, of her writing. maybe going back to the origin, the early days, i suppose having a female character, who had something about her, that was very unusual then, maybe still is today. yes, i remember the film barbarella, backin yes, i remember the film barbarella, back in the 60s, there was jane fonda being a space kitten, a strange, rather wonderful movie, fonda being a space kitten, a strange, ratherwonderful movie, but carrie was much more grounded in whatever planet we happen to be on at the time, she could do this in spate of the something silly hairstyles she did not always liked.
1:26 pm
occasionally she would forget and pool 20 minutes of hair out of the week. i think she was not sure about the bikini in return of thejedi. of course, she became every young man's crush for ever. it is important to remember, when you see a movie back when you're younger, particularly star wars, people maladies, when you're younger, particularly starwars, people maladies, grown men, remember those days, and all of the fans who were there. it has become part of people's family and i feel the loss of a family member if i think about it. was it hard for her to deal with that? we all age, it is the natural process yet there is the pressure for people to look the same all those years later and of course we all change. ido! all change. i do! outside. the greatjoy i never
1:27 pm
realised is that i will forever be young as c3p0. carrie i think really accepted, i think, who she was. she was becoming... i'm not good to see a better person but she was coming out of her skin by the end, doing her thing and people delighted in her doing that. they saw her happy behaviour, she said what she wanted to say and she said it with great truth. she seems to go everywhere with her beloved dog, as well. gary! after one of the read—throughs, we were in a posh restau ra nt read—throughs, we were in a posh restaurant with mark hamill and his wife, christina, and me and the dog, gary. you would always see pictures of the dog with his tongue hanging out. she adored the dog and gary went everywhere with her. a great companion. that was the actor anthony daniels
1:28 pm
remembering the many times he worked with carrie fisher. he played c3p0, of course, in star wars, remembering carrie fisher, who has died at the age of 60. just to tell you some news coming through from germany in the last few moments. police are saying they have arrested a man, a a0—year—old tunisian man in connection with the lorry attack on the berlin christmas market earlier this month. persecutors in germany are saying the man they arrested had been in contact with the burning lorry attack, the man who was shot dead later, believed to have carried out that attack on the berlin christmas market that killed 12 people. police in germany saying in the last few minutes they have arrested a a0—year—old tunisian man who had beenin a0—year—old tunisian man who had been in contact
