bring, but we know they are going to be committed, we know they are going to play with a lot of pride —— usa are going to bring. they are coast very well by gary gold. they have a good team. sean davies, a very good kicking nine. and that kicker is a good ball kicker. i was they were pretty much don't have anything to lose, other than the rugby game. we don't have anything to lose. the expectations are quite low. noda gives us a chance. and conversely that puts pressure on eating like england, it will go through their mind ——on a team lake. on to football, and inter milan have regained top spot in italy's serie a. they beat lazio on wednesday — to make it five wins out of five. the only goal of the game was scored by danilo d'ambrosio mid—way through the first half. it was the defender‘s first goal of the season —
and the result takes inter two points clear ofjuventus at the top of the table. roma missed the chance to move into the top four by losing 2—0 at home to atlanta — who scored both goals late in the second—half. duvan zapata's goal after 71 minutes was followed by a second from marten de roon in stoppage time. the result takes atlanta up to third in the table. calgliari complete the top four after winning at napoli where lucas castro headed in the only goal of the game 3 minutes from time. straight after the goal, napoli's kalidou koulibaly was shown a straight red card for dissent. there were four other games in italy on wednesday — with wins for fiorentina, parma and lecce, while genoa versus bologna finished goalless. in spain, real madrid's have gone top of la liga — courtesy of a 2—0 win over newly—promoted 0sasuna. it was viniciusjunior who opened the scoring with a brilliant curled effort from outside the box. real madrid then had a goal ruled out by var before rodrygo made sure of the points with less than 20 minutes to go to maintain real‘s unbeaten start to the league.

the opportunities they would never have had the chance to do without athletics. the only standing multi- events in the world. without athletics are probably would never have left. the first ever world title. what a talent she is. you're up title. what a talent she is. you're up against great britain and there has been much talk of a rivalry.|j thought it was a bit funny. 0f course it is motivating to have her there. it is what it is about. you just have to follow your plan. it is the final result. what is it like at the final result. what is it like at the moment back home, do you feel that pressure at all? actually yes. but i would is a less and less. it is me getting useful. people really positive. 0ne ago to get my groceries, i think it is super cute and it is pressure, no everyone is expecting a lot from me, but it is a lot of support. they don't want to
deceive anybody, but i think if it is going wrong i will be the first wa nt to is going wrong i will be the first want to be disappointed. they want to focus on the good side and not paying attention to the bad talk or the pressure behind it. how much of that plays on your mind, this defence of your title with yellow of corso want to keep that title. especially the last years i have had. it would be weird if they say, 0k, had. it would be weird if they say, ok, i had. it would be weird if they say, 0k, idon't had. it would be weird if they say, ok, i don't want to keep it. of course they want to. but i don't think i will be really focused on that. my goal every time is to do better than my pb. and it is a 7000 points, so why want to do 7000 points, so why want to do 7000 points again and get that european record. so i will be really focused on the performance. if a get 7000 points owe her bible get the gold too. i'm just focusing on myself and hoping i'd do better next time —— i hope they will get. staying with athletics, sebastian coe has been re—appointed as the head of the sport's world governing body
for a second four—year term. speaking at the iaaf congress in doha — ahead of the world championships, coe tried to allay fears that the intense heat in qatar would be a problem for the athletes taking part in the games. of 0f corso want as many people to finish in good shape as possible. 0ur medical people will be very low to that ——of course i want. heaters, ifiam to that ——of course i want. heaters, if i am being tougher, heat is not the big issue, clearly humidity. anyone who has run and completed knows that actually you can deal with heat, but humidity is really a challenge. so we will not all those metrics. we do have extra precautions, we do have extra stuff out on the course. more medical support, more water. but, yes, it is going to be tough. it is going to be tough. tennis, and there were a couple of big name casualties at the wuhan open in china on wednesday. the number four seed and wimbledon champion simona halep was forced to retire with a back injury during the first set of her match

sports news at our website — that's bbc.com/sport. but from me and the rest of the sport today team, goodbye. hello there. we're in the middle of a run of really unsettled weather with no end in sight, really. rain at times coming our way over the next few days, with some fairly strong wind around at times as well. now, looking at the satellite picture, we've got some shower clouds heading our way for today. this area of cloud, just to the north, is going to be bringing some rain across parts of the uk on friday, and then as i spin right the way across towards the other side of the atlantic, well, we've got this juicy looking cloud, quite a deep area of low pressure that's going be bringing some wet and windy weather for some of us as we head into this weekend. so rain will continue
to be blown our way. now at the moment we've got some rain crossing the country. it will tend ease across the west with showers following. the winds continue to pick up as well. so it's becoming increasingly blustery, particularly around the coast and hills. it's a mild start of the day, with temperatures around 11—15 degrees. once the sun is up, the rain still with us initially, will clear away from england and scotland, in the showers really do start to pack in. now, for northern ireland and scotland, the showers will probably tend to merge together to give some lengthier spells of rain at times. and things will begin to get a little bit cooler across the north as well. there'll be some bigger gaps between the showers in southern and eastern parts of england, but no—one is immune from seeing an odd heavy downpour. and through thursday night those showers will continue to rattle in as well with those brisk south—westerly winds continuing to push the showers in, particular into western coast and hills. temperatures then through thursday night, between around 9 and 13 degrees, and then for friday, well,
we've got further showers swinging our way. the showers will tend to most together to give some longer spells of rain. and this time it's properly most likely across england and wales. but there will be plenty of showers for scotland and northern ireland. it will continue to be quite gusty as well, gusts of wind running in at around 30—40 mph across the south of the uk. and the temperatures continue to slowly slump. so highs of around 14 or 15 degrees for scotland and northern ireland. even turning a bit cool across the south—east. now this weekend we do have some heavy rain and some strong winds on the way, thanks to that area of low pressure i showed you a moment ago. but the northward extent of where that low‘s going could change a little bit before we actually get to the weekend. but here it comes, through the weekend, the heaviest rain and strongest winds will be heading across england and wales. but it could cause localised disruption. the unsettled weather then continues, would you believe it, well into the first part of next week as well. that's your latest weather.
