welcome to bbc news — broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. lead at home to shandong luneng. my name's mike embley. and, on a day of shocks our top stories. at indian wells, men's top seed novak djokovic goes out along with women's second seed simona halep. by a huge margin, for a second time, the british parliament rejects the prime hello and welcome to the programme, where we start with the uefa minister's brexit deal. the australian cleric, champions league, and cristiano cardinal george pell, ronaldo has again dragged his team has been sentenced to 6 years back from the depths. this time a hat—trick forjuventus, in jail for child sex offences — the most senior clergyman ever to be as the old lady saw off atletico madrid to progress to the quarter—finals, convicted of such a crime. while manchester city thrashed schalke to also progress. ronaldo‘s hat—trick in turin capped it was a clear relationship of trust off a remarkakable turnaround for massimiliano allegri's side, and our football reporter john bennett gave me his verdict with the victims and you breached on what we can expect next that trust and abused your position from the italians. to facilitate this offending. the boeing 737 max is temporarily banned from european airspace, and many other countries, after 2 fatal accidents in 5 months. actress felicity huffman amongst a0 i think this was a defining note for people charged with involvement in a scam to help wealthy americans cheat their way juventus, because yes, cristiano ronaldo was the hero. everyone will talk about him, he will grab all the headlines, but i thought it was a fantastic team performance. the two centre—backs faultless. atletico
madrid didn't want to put across in because they knew it would be headed away. and a really good team performance. max allegri answered a few critics, people have talked about his future, perhaps leaving in the summer. but i think they a nswered the summer. but i think they answered a lot of critics, and cristiano ronaldo answered a lot of critics. they will be joint favourites, i think, critics. they will be joint favourites, ithink, with critics. they will be joint favourites, i think, with manchester city and barcelona to win the champions league. arguably that was not the biggest outcome of the night, manchester city defeating schalke. they have pretty much come of age during this one, haven't they? think of the most one-sided game you have seen in your life, and it is this. two goals for aguero and the goals shared out as well between the goals shared out as well between the manchester city players, including foden, one of their youngsters coming through. guardiola
one of the only managers in the champions league to win the title. they have never been past the semifinals. they will see this as a big opportunity with the likes of real madrid out, the likes of paris st germain out. in the second half we we re st germain out. in the second half we were incredibly good, and quick, and the dynamic, the transitions, and the dynamic, the transitions, and we scored goals, seven goals. i know that schalke is in a tough period because they lost the last games, they their confidence might not be on top. but even with that situation, you have to do yourjob, and we did it. on wednesday, bayern munich host last year's beaten finalists, liverpool. there is everything to play for after their goalless draw in the first leg. liverpool are in good form, and the german champions are top of the bundesliga for the first time since september, while for liverpool manager, jurgen klopp, it is just another game. if you deserve to go through, if you play good football, it could mean it could change the world for us. if not, on thursday morning, we say it
is over now, let's concentrate on fulham. it is only one game, a very important game, and more important games will come. and it is sure to be tense at camp nou, with barcelona and lyon also goalless after the first leg. despite their dominance of la liga, barca haven't reached the champions league final since 2015. the teams actually met in this competition ten years ago, and barca won 5—2 on the night. one of the survivors from that night is a certain lionel messi, another game in which he scored. in the asian champions league, holders kashima antlers of japan were held to a 2—2 draw, despite being 2—0 up. and a homecoming for a star midfielder didn't turn out how he would have hoped, as nick parrott reports. the reigning champions, kashima antlers, look to have made the perfect start. in under a quarter of an hour, they struck twice to put the japanese in charge. but italy's striker is in a hot run of form.
pelle scored twice in his side's opening champions league fixture and repeated the feat to draw the chinese side level. they could have won it had the former manchester midfielder fellaini not missed his chance. the south korean side are impressing in their competition. they were in their opening match and pulled off a surprise 3—1 win over the champions to maintain their 100% record. the brazilian striker edgar scored twice in the first half, and daegu secured the victory. melbourne victory were led to face erythema. his return to his homeland was spoiled by the host who took an early lead. the australians drew level midway through the second half, but they couldn't avoid their second straight defeat, losing out with just four minutes to go. now to horse racing, where the much—anticiapated cheltenham festival started in england on tuesday. and the weather played a part on the opening day,
with high winds also expected on wednesday, as our sports correspondent andy swiss reports. well, welcome to cheltenham, where we've had a real mixed bag of weather today. we've had rain, we've had sunshine, we've had some blustery wind. and the racing itself has been just as unpredictable. a big upset in the feature race of the day, the champion hurdle, the two—time winner buveur d'air going for a hat—trick. he fell early on. that left the way clear for the 16:1 shot espoir d'allen, ridden by mark walsh, to claim an emphatic victory. so a real turn—up for the bookies there. one sad piece of news, with the focus on horse welfare here at cheltenham, there was one equine fatality, the horse ballyward in the final race of the day. but earlier on, i mentioned the weather, and there is real concern about the high winds that are forecast for tomorrow, whether they could potentially
disrupt, even postpone racing tomorrow. there will be an inspection early in the morning to see whether racing can go ahead. if it can't, then all of the races scheduled for day two will take place on saturday, so there will be an extra day here at cheltenham, which is something of a logistical problem for the organisers. so the feature race on day two — supposed to be the queen mother champion chase. we'll have to see whether it can actually take place at all. now to tennis, and five—time winner novak djokovic has been knocked out of the indian wells masters in the third round by philipp kohlschreiber. the world number one serb, who currently holds three of the four grand slam titles, was beaten 6—4, 6—4 by the german world number 39. no such problems for the world number two, though, as rafael nadal moved through to the last 16. he accounted for diego schwartzman 6—3, 6—1, and will now play serbia's filip krajinovic. elsewhere, hubert hurkacz upset kei nishikori for the second time
this season with a three—set victory. hurkacz has now won both of his meetings against nishikori, after also defeating the world number seven last month at the dubai tennis championships. in the women's event, 2015 champion simona halep has been knocked out losing in three sets to marketa vondrousova. the czech player stunned halep with four breaks in the first set to take it in 30 minutes, eventually wrapping it 6-2, 3-6, 6-2. the 19—year—old will now play elina svitolina in the quarter—finals, who needed more than three hours to see off ashleigh barty. elsewhere, garbine muguruza played some of her best tennis of the season to upset kiki bertens and book a spot in the last eight. the spanish 20th seed recovered in style after dropping her opening set, to win 5—7, 6—1, 6—3. tiger woods says the neck injury that forced him out of last
weekend's arnold palmer invitational tournament has improved, but he has admitted that there will always be some pain after all the surgery he has had. the 14—time major winner returns at the players championship, saying his neck had been troubling him for a while. it is not painful now. it was getting to a point where it was affecting my set up, my backswing, my through swinging. it was just gradually, you know, getting worse. and that's just because my lower backis and that's just because my lower back is fused, and so the stress has to go somewhere. if i don't have movement. and so it is very important for me, going forward, since the surgery, is to keep playable, or else the stresses going to somewhere else. in rugby union, the six nations is considering an offer from private equity firm cvc to sell a stake in the sport's oldest championship. it is believed it could provide a windfall of more than $130 million to each union, but would mean partly surrendering control of the competition. the interest means the six nations
face a dilemma between selling to private money or embracing the potential option of a world rugby—sanctioned nations championship. ireland's sam bennett sprinted to victory on stage three of the paris—nice, while dylan groenewegen's overall lead was halved to six seconds by michal kwiatkowski. racing 200 km, no riders fancied their chances of making a successful breakaway and the day finished in a bunch sprint, with bennett of bora—hansgrohe holding off caleb ewan and fabiojakobsen to claim his third stage win of the year. seven games taking place in the nba. the milwaukee bucks are up in new o rlea ns, the milwaukee bucks are up in new orleans, that one is into the final quarter. you can get all the latest sports news at our website. but from me, tulsen tollett, and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye.
hello there. very windy overnight. it's still going to be very windy during the day on wednesday. sunshine and blustery showers. we're still feeling the effects of storm gareth. this was earlier on, that belt of cloud brought the rain. behind that, we're seeing frequent showers around the centre of the storm, and just on the southern flank of that curl of cloud, this is where the strongest swathe of winds has been, affecting western scotland, northern ireland, increasingly now running over the irish sea. by the time we get to the early morning, into the rush—hour time, the winds still very strong in western scotland and northern ireland. not as strong, though — 50—60mph. strongest winds over the irish sea into north—west england, into pennine areas, leeds and sheffield, 65 mph. there'll be some continued disruption.
it will be windy everywhere early in the morning, and gales widely. also streams of showers, one in north—eastern scotland one into western scotland, and over the irish sea into the midlands. for much of the day, southern parts of england and wales and eastern england will be dry with some sunshine. the winds gradually easing down through the afternoon. eventually, some cloud and some rain arrives in northern ireland. shouldn't be quite as chilly — temperatures 11 or 12 degrees on wednesday afternoon. the winds continue to ease through the evening, but we introduce more cloud, we introduce rain to many parts of the country overnight. and the main concern is the amount of rain, the continued rain in upland areas of north—west england, over the pennines and the cumbrian fells, could lead to some flooding issues over the next few days. mild enough, temperatures 5—7 degrees, ‘cause it's windy and it's wet. now, the worst of the rain will probably be overnight and first thing in the morning. that weather front will take the heaviest of the rain away, and then we've got this secondary cold front that's
moving its way southwards and taking patchy rain across wales and into southern england. then still a strong to gale—force north—westerly wind will bring down sunshine and showers, most of the showers in the north—west of scotland, where it's a little bit chillier, 8 or 9 degrees. further south could get as high as 11 or 12. now, as one band of rain moves through, so we would look to the atlantic again. this is where everything is coming from. very mobile situation, another set of weather fronts arriving overnight, the winds picking up in time for friday. so some more strong—to—gale—force mainly westerly winds, most of the rain across scotland and northern ireland. as the rain pushes down into england and wales, it tends to peter out. south—west might be dry, and quite warm, actually. temperatures 01:14 or 15 degrees, chillierfurther north. increasingly wintry showers in scotland.
