and awarded 2028 to the us city of los angeles. last month it was decided that the two summer olympics will be awarded at the same time, after a number of cities cancelled their bids over concerns about the size, cost, and complexity of organising one of the world's biggest sporting events. our sports correspondent alex capstick is in peru for us where the announcements were made. i have been to a few of these contests i have been to a few of these co ntests a nd i have been to a few of these contests and this has been by far the most relaxed. no tension, no nerves normally associated with these occasions and that is because when paris and los angeles arrived here, they knew that 2020 for in 2028 had been divvied up between them. paris would go first and los angeles agreed to wait. but still, but said it had to make presentations to show their plans for the olympics to the ioc members and to the watching around the
world. there were hardly any questions from the floor and in a simple shorthand there was unanimous and, finally, confirmation that both cities will be olympic hosts. the ioc president has hailed this as a win—win victory. it buys the ioc time to come up with a plan to encourage other potential ioc host cities because that has been a problem. as for the members, they can now concentrate their attention on more pressing issues. what to do about russia at next year's winter olympic picks following the doping scandal. and also the question the damage being inflicted on the olympic brand because of the growing number of allegations against olympic officials. but for now, in paris and los angeles, it is time for a party. to las vegas now ahead of the middleweight boxing bout that purists have been waiting for.

definition of spectacle as they showed. this is a show. i think that they are a lot of opinions but there isa they are a lot of opinions but there is a market for shows and a market for five. rarely you is a market for shows and a market forfive. rarely you get is a market for shows and a market for five. rarely you get if none of those minds together enjoying the same thing. it was shed light on us and even more after saturday when a fight is one, a special historic event being displayed. it will be a clear separation between two or three weeks ago and now. and it is cheaper. talking about a historic event. i have changed my mind a few times about who i think would win. i have spoken to manyjournalists here, we are all split. which we are you going? i'm going with canal are.

coast, sunshine for a time. but there's a strip of cloud coming down across the midlands, east anglia, and across wales, too, that will have heavy showers in it, and that's going to be pushing southwards as the morning goes by. so the sunshine in the south will not last long. to the north, for scotland and northern ireland, there will be some sunshine to start the day. still, though, with that blustery wind making it feel cool around the coast. stornoway 9 degrees, but factoring in the strength of wind, it will feel a little chilly. as we go through the rest of the day, that band of cloud and showers pushes south across england before clearing. then the sunshine comes out across england and wales, that sunshine triggering one or two heavy showers. some of the showers will turn thundery. when the showers come along, they'll really drop the temperatures for a time. it'll be quite a cool day, in any case, across the north—west, with temperatures of 13 degrees or so in glasgow. showers in the north of scotland could merge to form a lengthy spell of rain for a time. through the night—time,
the band of showers will push south and across northern england and across wales, as well, still tied in with this week when a front that is pushing its way southwards. going through friday, this will push the showers southwards across the midlands, east anglia, and into southern counties of england. along that line, there'll a lot of cloud, and some heavier showers. the sunshine comes out across the north across scotland, northern england and northern ireland. another cold day, though, across northern parts for this time of year. just 12 celsius. factoring in the wind, it will feel that bit cooler. that low is sending northerly winds across the uk. this area of low pressure will continue to feed in showers. the majority of the showers will be across central and eastern parts of england. elsewhere, particularly through the weekend, the weather could become drier and brighter across the north—west of the uk. the winds continue to ease. we will have some cool weather, perhaps some overnight frost across sheltered parts of scotland this weekend. and that's your weather. hello, i'm tom donkin. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america
