on his was making him play more on his service games and i felt the level was really high. jamie murray and martina hingis are through to the mixed doubles final after beating marcelo demol—iner and maria jose martinez—sanchez in straights sets on centre court. and waiting for them are heather watson and henri kontinen. they beat bruno soares and elena vesnina to sets to one. so that means britain is guaranteed success one way or another in the final. while gordon reid and alfie hewett are back in the hunt for another wimbledon title after britain's star wheelchair tennis double act reached the final. after early defeats in the singles for both men, they recovered — as a team — with a to sets to one victory over argentinian gustavo fernandez and japan's shingo kunieda. on the first night of the world para—athletics championships in london, hannah cockroft won the 100 metre t34 gold in a world record 17.18 seconds. and it was a british one—two as sixteen—year—old carrie adenegan came in second,
winning silver. amazing, i was getting emotional, the noise was so loud, we have not had that since london 2012. to put a performance in a mean so much, hopefully a sign of a good championships to come. and gemma prescott won gb‘s third medal of the tournament with bronze in the f32 club final for seated athletes with cerebral palsy. prescott‘s best throw was 19.97 metres. now let's get to trent bridge where england are looking for a good start to the second test against south africa, after a comfortable victory in the opening match. adam wild is our reporter there. a warm welcome at trent bridge for the fans. visiting teams, they will
be all to wear this hospitality and friendly reception or not stretch as far as them. england team with one thing undermined. a big victory in the first test, in no mood to let up the first test, in no mood to let up the pressure. england's pace was uncomfortable and unsettling. when james anderson comes into bowl, magic seems to happen. quite brilliant catch from liam dawson. anderson's 300 test wickets on home soil. the first englishman to do that. the south african batsmen have a point to prove. they better time 01’ a point to prove. they better time or place to do it. it wouldn't be here yet. breakthrough from broad. hashim amla finding form that has eluded south africa in this series. this took in 250. quinton de kock follow. they break a0 brought a breaking concentration. alastair cook making up for an earlier drop. the key wicket, hashim amla
threatening to break loose, coming up threatening to break loose, coming up short. things beginning to fall england's way. faf du plessis the captain acrobatically caught behind. behind him tender bifouma falling into the gloves arejonny bairstow. the patience paying off. south africa finish in the day on 309—6. at times frustrating for the english bowlers, they will be keen to wrap things up as quickly as possible, get their batsmen in. 0nly things up as quickly as possible, get their batsmen in. only then will we tell how hospitable they have been. it's been a difficult few weeks for rory mcilroy, he's been struggling for form and he's now missed the cut at the scottish 0pen too. the world number four had a chance for a birdie on the final hole, you can see he missed it, and his frustration. it means he misses the weekend's play, for the third time in the last four tournaments. now let's turn our attention to stage 13 of the tour de france...
and it was an important one for britain's chris froome. the three time winner and reigning champion lost the lead of the race yesterday, with the yellow jersey passing to fabio aru. you don't often see this, chris froome ian white rather than yellow. six seconds behind fabio aru, with 100 miles to go until paris, plenty of time to make that up. there are worse places than the high mountains in the pyrenees 20s swoop on your prey. mikael lundberg joint two time leader alberto contador at the front. frome kept jabbing leader alberto contador at the front. frome keptjabbing away with fabio aru. it has become a race rather than a progression. the fans out in force on bastille day. a home favourite during the breakaway, leading over the big climb. the race
leaders would not catch them. fighting it out on the descent of the finish. neither could gain an advantage. a four way battle for the overall lead. fabio aru hung on to follow chris froome over the line. the italian with a six second lead. we will see where they are the legacy to hold on until paris. write a great feeling to go out there and race for the win, as opposed to racing defensively, having the pressure on defending the jersey. felt quite nice to have the shoe on the other foot. celtic have beaten linfield to nil in their champions league qualifier first legs. the match was moved to friday, so it didn't clash with the marching season, and celtic declined to take up their ticket allocation amid safety concerns. but the visitors were 2—0 up after half an hour thanks to goals
from scott sinclair and tom rogic, and that's how it finished. the england defender kyle walker has completed his transfer from tottenham hotspur to manchester city. the 27—year—old has signed a five—year contract, for a fee that could rise to around 50 million pounds after add—ons. the fa has charged the former sutton united goalkeeper wayne shaw with breaching betting rules after he ate a pie during the fa cup defeat to arsenal. shaw resigned after being captured on camera eating the pie during the match in february, it later emerged he had been offered odds by a bookmaker to do so. he's been charged with intentionally influencing a football betting market and improper conduct. he has until six o clock next friday to respond to the charges. the long term future of the british grand prix at silverstone may be uncertain but mercedes driver valtteri bottas set the fastest time in second practice for this year's race. and team—mate lewis hamilton wasjust behind him on the time sheets, although he did come off the track briefly, and reported possible damage
to the underside of his car. and while you thought december was prime pantomine season, floyd mayweather jnr and conor mcgregor have been doing their latest bit of acting this evening... ahead of their fight on august 26th, the latest stop on their world tour was in london. and a packed wembley arena watched them curse at one another for around 30 minutes — this the cleanest bit of footage we could show you! mayweather is of course one of boxing's greatest ever fighters, while mcgregor, the biggest name in ufc, is boxing for the first time in his career. and that's all from sportsday, with me tim hague. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be
bringing us tomorrow. even women can do it, that is releva nt even women can do it, that is relevant and aaron. -- relevant and current. with me are caroline crampton from the new statesman and lynn davidson, whitehall correspondent with the sun. the times leads with the rise in acid attacks and suggests that anti—knife crime laws might be harnessed to combat the sale of corrosive substances to under 18s. the guardian has new research which it claims highlights the financial divide between the generations. the daily mail has a warning for drivers hiring cars abroad with excess charges for damaged cars now averaging over a thousand pounds the ft reports on the fortunes of two major us banks which are facing a drop in revenues — the front page photo shows one of those extended handshakes between presidents trump and macron. the treatment of charlie gard, the baby at the centre of a court dispute over his care makes
the front of the ‘i'. and the same story is on the front of the daily mirror — an american doctor is flying in to discuss a new therapy for the seriously ill baby. let's begin with the story about the knife crime laws to halt acid attacks. headlines in the times, ministers act after five new victims in east london. these incidents are increasing. it is a particular concern to the police. it is. the figures in the story, 183 in 2012-13. 52a in 2016-17. the figures in the story, 183 in 2012—13. 52a in 2016—17. the problem for the police and home office, as one person says, these are chemicals which most people can find under the kitchen sink. hard to introduce a licence. controls about carrying them, as they did with knife crime when that spiked a few years ago. the authorities are in a bind. you
cannot prove because someone is carrying acid there is any intent. stephen timms, the mp for east ham who was attacked in his constituency some years ago. he will be debating oi'i some years ago. he will be debating on monday in parliament, pushing for a change in the law, so that carrying acid is the same is carrying acid is the same is carrying acid is the same is carrying a knife. if you have a knife wrapped up, bought it from the shops, it is an offence. if you can prove intent. if someone has sulphuric acid, which they may be taking time to unblock the drain, but if there is evidence of intent, they can be charged with a serious offe nce. they can be charged with a serious offence. what we discovered talking toa offence. what we discovered talking to a qc, there are laws from victorian times which mention corrosive substances like vitriol. there are laws like gbh with intent, using a corrosive substance. maybe those laws may be used if people are
called. interestingly legal precedent goes back that far, showing this is not a new phenomenon. corrosive liquids as a weapon has been around for as long as corrosive liquids. it is finding the balance between cracking down on people doing household chores, versus people doing household chores, versus people causing serious harm. top us doctorflying in to versus people causing serious harm. top us doctor flying in to see charlie gard. the parents of this little boy in the high court again. they have been there all week. to wina they have been there all week. to win a chance to get this numerology may have an experimental treatment which could help. everyone involved and this is in an impossible position. they are, the staff at great 0rmond street hospital and to provide the best care for the child. the parents want to give their child every chance of survival. i'm sure this expert wants to offer the same thing. but it seems like they are
competing interests, competing evidence. so difficult to settle that and see that clearly in such an emotive case. a sensible ethical solution, they are calling for. whether that turns out to be the case, we don't know. this professor arguing that this experimental therapy he can offer can give 10% improvement for charlie's condition. this is a baby that cannot see or hear or move or swallow or even breathe on its own. it is very emotive for everyone involved. some of the staff working at the hospital, theyjust want the best for little charlie. so appalling, when you think great 0rmond ‘s reaches so world—renowned. everybody working for the best of all the patients they are trying to treat. let's look at the guardian. campaigning headline. divided uk,
the rich thrive, the under 35 struggle. what is new about the report? repeating quite a lot about it. not reading anything that any of us it. not reading anything that any of us did not know already. we know that people earning £275,000 or more than recover quickly any recession. the other 99% of the population, we know under 35 is which many of whom supported labour, the just about managing under35 is, supported labour, the just about managing under 35 is, that's a reason may want to support by overhaul housing. incomes are the top people take a others didn't. a big challenge facing us is divided britain. does it offer any solutions? it does not, outlining what we have been talking about as the background to every political event since the referendum. to be
honest, before that. this idea how you vote these days is better predicted by whether you own a home or not than any other factor. the average age at which you can own a home is steadily getting higher and higher. meaning that people in their a0s, maybe 20, 30 years ago would have made the switch from labour to conservative which comes with greater stability are not making that anymore. the issue housing came up that anymore. the issue housing came up quitea that anymore. the issue housing came up quite a lot in the election. even though it was supposed to be about brexit. the fact that so few people can brexit. the fact that so few people ca n afford brexit. the fact that so few people can afford to buy a house was such an issue. fundamentally what you wa nt an issue. fundamentally what you want in this country. we are programmed to want it. people not getting on a housing ladder is not good news, particularly not good news for the tory party. the issue with a triple lock, which the tories did not, and labour wanted to hold
onto. the redistribution of wealth, he held at the top, the older generation, not trickling down. there will be many people saying there are a lot of pensioners struggling. difficult to make sweeping statements. it is indeed. more evidence and more grass cannot hurt. we like grass, even though quite difficult to see. maybe that is my eyesight. the ft, hands—on approach. president is joining forces for the bastille day parade in paris. donald and emmanuelle in their best friends. loaded with symbolism. 100 years since the american forces during the first world war, bastille day, france looking at its very best for this holiday. two great revolutionary republics. throwing off the shackles of oppression at the same time in the 18th century.
