welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers and it's all about fingers, rather than feet — in north america the premier league players and around the globe. in a world of pixels, potentially about to earn thousands. i'm reged ahmad. our top stories: the mueller report says there's no evidence the trump campaign colluded with russia over welcome to the programme. the 2016 us election. football's international window's the president claims victory. given us an early crunch match in the european championship qualifiers, as germany's visit to amsterdam provided the stand—out tie in group c. and they were 2—0 up by half—time. leroy sane opening the scoring after 15 minutes. before serge gnabry curled a beauty, his 5th goal in six internationals. but the netherlands drew leveljust after the hour mark, after matthijs de ligt so its complete exoneration — halved the deficit. no collusion, no obstruction. but as calls grow for the release memphis depay equalised — of the entire report, three goals in two games for the winger. a senior democrat says president trump still both sides pressed for the winner. it came on 90 minutes, for nico schultz. 3—2 germany. translation: of course i have a good
feeling about this match. the things we do in the first half did well and that was very satisfying. we practised a lot and the team executed them well. they were good combinations. maybe we had a bit of luck on our side, like that we did not have before that, unlike that we did not have against holland at home. tonight we were efficient and scored three times and those other reasons why i feel good about the match and the result. so, a winning start for germany. but northern ireland top the group, played two, won two — josh magennis with a later winner in belfast against belarus. in group e, last year's world cup runners—up, croatia, sufferered a shock defeat in budapest, where hungary came from behind to win 2—1. and swansea's danieljames got the only goal in cardiff, as wales beat slovakia. as poland beat latvia 2—0. in group g, robert lewandowski
was among the scorers, as poland beat latvia 2—0. they too have won two. 2—0 in group i for belgium meanwhile. perfect start maintained. eden hazard and michy batshuayi on the score sheet against cyprus. also in that group, denis cheryshev scored twice in russia's 4—0 win in kazakhstan. and scotland won 2—0 in san marino. in africa, the last five places at this year's cup of nations have been decided. among the teams who've booked their places in egypt: the former champions — south africa and dr congo. percy tau scored both goals for south africa. they won 2—1 in libya — that qualifies them as runners—up of group e, behind nigeria. and cedric bakambu scored the only goal of the game as dr congo beat liberia to decide who qualified from group g along with zimbabwe. elsewhere, steve mounie scored the winner as benin beat togo 2—1 to qualify from group d. as mentioned, zimbabwe
the group g winners they beat congo—brazzaville 2—nil. and, in group l, tanzania beat uganda — who'd already qualified — to join them in the finals. on to tennis — the defending champion john isner‘s through to the fourth round of the miami masters. the american is the number 7 seed. he beat spain's albert ramos vinolas in straight sets — but he was made to work hard for his victory. isner won the first set — 7—5 — and was taken to a tie—break in the second. isner will now play great britain's kyle edmund, the number 19 seed, who beat milos raonic in straight sets. edmund won — 6—4, 6—4 — so round 4 of a second successive masters series event he made the last 16 a fortnight ago at indian wells. meanwhile, simona halep‘s through to round four
of the women's singles but she had to come from behind to beat polona hercog after the world number 93 from slovenia took the opening set 7—5. the number 2 seed, halep, turned it round — by taking the second set on a tie—break — then racing through the decider — 6—2. she'll now play venus williams. to golf — and a celebrating paul casey. the englishman is once again the valspar champion — he's retained a title for the first time in his professional career. he held on for a one—shot victory overjason kokrak and louis oosthuizen. dustinjohnson was among the big players to fall behind his five under par finish was three shots behind the winner. casey finished eight under, windy conditions in palm harbor, florida. david warner's made a high—scoring return to the indian premier league. a i2—month ban for taking part in a ball—tampering scandal meant
the australian missed last year's tournament. but he came back with a top—score 85 for sunrisers hyderabad. still not the happiest return, kolkata knight riders beat them by 6 wickets. more joy for his former aussie team—mates though. they beat pakistan by 8 wickets in sharjah. mohammad rizwan hit 115 as pakistan made 284 for 7 from their 50 overs. chasing 285 to win, usman khawaja and aaron finch put on 209 for the first wicket. finch went on to make 153 not out as the aussies reached their target with 13 balls to spare, to go 2—0 up in the five—match series. 2—0 now in the series of five one—day internationals. now, plenty of students prefer computer games over studying. owen venn‘s made a career of it, giving up a university degree. this week he'll represent southampton in the very first premier league finals in london.
mike bushell found out what it's all about. it might not look like it at first end of this west london park but i am having a kick around with some premier league footballers, potentially earning hundreds of thousands of pounds and this week heading to win a league title for their team, not with their feet but taking centre stage rather than centre circle, the fever games finals, hoping they will find the back of the net in the first ever premier league final this week. i would quit his bournemouth university degree to become a professional and will play for southampton this week. my dad was really supportive but the hardest thing was telling my mum i had to move back in and tried to pursue a career in fever and she was like,
what? but the longer she has gone on she has been fine and really supportive. it is a common worry for pa rents supportive. it is a common worry for parents that their children are spending too much time on their xbox 01’ spending too much time on their xbox or playstation ‘s but many have special diets and go to the gym. a healthy body gives a healthy mind. lot of focus, if you make a slight mistake you can hinder how the game turns out and something was coming into it for me was my nutrition and my living. it definitely takes a lot of dedication, probably as much as in any spot. two players will compete in the tournament. the finals this weekend will take place here, and it is studio compass enema. it will be beamed all over the world. each move shine. chris, a bricklayer, is open to go full—time
despite not making the burnley team this year. it is a dream to play for the team. i could never make it as a footballer but hopefully i can make it here. it is big business with small fortunes after grabs in some tournaments and, with their crowds roaring you on in the theatre or on line. the former chief executive of manchester city supports it. who as a young man 01’ a young manchester city supports it. who as a young man or a young lady would not want to play and represent their team. as the audience continues to grow, because we are in the middle ofa grow, because we are in the middle of a digital megatrend, this is an extension of that and i recommend the premier league for taking this step. the speed and skill the game left me behind. five — zero thrashing despite the heroics of my keeper. compared to the real premier league, it is more of a level playing field. money cannot buy success in this game. the team is
only as good as the person who controls it. who wants to watch space invaders in eight beads, i would have been a champion otherwise. switzerland's nino schurter and lars forster have won the 2019 cape epic — billed as one of the toughest cycling stage races in the world. 14th place on sunday was enough to claim the title — after 700 kilimeteres over 8 days. staged in south africa's western cape, the event attracts elite professional mountain bikers from around the world — competing in teams of two. to qualify for a finish, the pairs have to stay together for the duration. it was a second cape epic title for schurter who also won in 2017. that's all. thank you for watching.
hello there. we saw mixed fortunes of the weather across the uk on sunday, with breezy, windy conditions, with showers across the north. further south unbroken sunshine. we saw 15.1 celsius in stjames's park, in london. the windy showering conditions across the north of the country has been attributed to this area of low pressure, which is continuing to push out into the near continent, and allowing this big area of high pressure to topple in across the uk. so it will continue quite windy for the early hours of monday, across some eastern areas, perhaps a few showers. but elsewhere lighter winds and lengthy clear skies. so it's going to be quite a chilly start to the day today, with low single figures across the south and a touch of frost out of town, across more northern areas. so a chilly start to monday but at least largely dry and bright with plenty of sunshine. the winds will be light too because high pressure will be dominating. so lots of sunshine across england and wales, and across scotland and northern ireland to begin with, but then skies will gradually turn cloudier through the day as we see a weak warm front pushing off the atlantic. so it will blot out
all the sunshine. we'll see a little bit of showery rain across the north and the west. but some milder air moving in — 10—11 degrees, in fact, milder than it was on sunday. for england and wales, down into the channel islands a glorious afternoon with widespread sunshine, light winds and temperatures around 13 degrees after what was a cool start. and then high pressure dominates the scene for the week ahead. slap bang on top of us, in fact, we will be drawing some drier air off the near continent. this is why we shouldn't see too many problems with clouds and we should potentially see quite a bit of sunshine. so it's looking pretty good for the rest of the week. mainly dry. quite warm by day but night will continue to be chilly, with a touch of mist and fog. this is thepictue then for tuesday: chilly start, any mist clearing away quickly and then we'll see plenty of sunshine. but into the afternoon a bit of fairweather cloud tending to build up here and there. and to the very north of scotland, here we'll have a frontal system which will bring outbreaks of rain, mainly to the northern isles, where it will be quite breezy.
a nice mild day, temperatures 13 or 1a celsius. a similar picture on wednesday. we start off quite cool, a little bit of mist and fog around and that hould clear quickly. and then three's lots of sunshine through the afternoon. again, a bit of fairweather cloud building up here and there. the best of the sunshine will be across england and wales. a little bit warmer on wednesday. 1a degrees in aberdeen, 15 degrees across central, southern and eastern parts of the country. and if anything it turns even warmer towards the end of the week. we could be looking at 17, 18, maybe 19 degrees across the south east. but like i mentioned, warm by day but still quite chilly at night.
