it's not pattern through the week. it's not going to be particularly settled but there will be decent spells of sunshine for a time before rain arrives from the west. this is bbc news. the headlines at 6:30pm... president trump has issued a new warning to north korea, saying pyongyang will "regret it fast" if it targets the us island of guam or any of america's allies. a 27—year—old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a mother and daughter were found stabbed at their home in north london last night. detectives investigating the murder of an elderly dog—walker near east harling in norfolk have arrested a man in his 20s. a state of emergency has been declared in the us city of charlottesville in virginia following violent clashes in the run—up to a large march by white nationalists. president trump, in a tweet, has called for calm and unity. big day, today. let's crossed the
bbc sports centre. stay. —— for sportsday. hello there. i'm olly foster at the london stadium, this is world athletics sportsday, and this is what's coming up on the programme... it's going to be a farewell for farah. his last race for a global gold. will it the be a golden goodbye for bolt? it's the relay, then retirement. and, with six finals tonight, katarina johnson—thompson gets a second chance to make it onto the podium. i'm lizzie greenwood hughes. also coming up in the programme... the defeated champions — chelsea are beaten by burnley in their opening game of the season. but it's terrific for the terriers. promoted huddersfield beat crystal palace 3—0. good evening.
and what an evening gets going to be on the ninth day of these world athletics championships, on the penultimate evening. two figureheads of atheltics will be leaving the sport tonight. 29 world championship and olympic golds between them. we have about three hours before usian bolt bows out of the sport, and in the next two hours, mo farah is due to cross the finish line in the 5000 metres — his final race at a major championship. it would be his fourth world title in a row over the distance, and after his 10,000 metres gold, he is on for another double. it would be his fifth in a row at worlds and 0lympics. a true giant of distance running,
perhaps not the greatest. he's never had a world record. at a true racer. he took david moorcroft was not 5000 metres british record. he holds pretty much every british record of the distances. earlier, i spoke to david moorcroft, former 5000 metre record—holder, about tonight's race and fa rah‘s career. he can certainly do it. if he thought the 10,000 was his toughest ever race, tonight it might be even tough. his domination has been incredible. the way the guy up thinks the opposition, how he uses his head and makes the right decision at the right time, controls the race throughout the whole of the race. then he hits the front at the right time. in the ten victories he's had, his greatest length of victory, 0.6 of a second, but within thatis victory, 0.6 of a second, but within that is world domination. tonight could be his office to ask. there are fresh legs in there. but he is a superb athlete —— his toughest
asked. over the last couple of yea rs, asked. over the last couple of years, he and his coaching team have beenin years, he and his coaching team have been in oregon. alberto salazar has faced increasing scrutiny of their practices, both by on three deny any wrongdoing. but we know that us doping officials are investigating alberto salazar. that must be very difficult for mo farah to have dealt with as well. it is difficult. we have seen at these championships he has chosen not to speak to the breast. he said, let me speak out on the track. —— not to speak to the press. he tries to separate himself from any controversy. he says, i'm very much my in person. trust me, i'm queen. i think that's what we have to do. i have known mo city was a kid —— he says, trust me, i'm queen. he is one of the most impressive racers. i'm going to be celebrating his career this evening and leave mo farah is like to answer any questions beyond this.
sirmo farah going sir mo farah going for an incredible 11th gold medal this evening. is saying bold, the last race on the track, will be going for a 20th. you've got to go way, way back to where it. did, beijing, the incredible world records, the treble troubles. he was out on the track this morning to get the jamaican four by 100 relay team into two nights final. his last chance at a global gold. what shape is the great usain bolt in? it's brilliant, you know what i mean? it's a great team. these guys are young. they are wonderful, they came out to qualify. weather added nerves for you today? no, i enjoy relays more than anything. and as for the big farewell tonight, have you got your head around it? you're there now? i don't know, we'll see what happens. for me it's hard to be sad, the energy and the vibe is
wonderful. for me, it'sjust been brilliant. he loves this stadium and the stadium loves him. the majority of the crowd would love to see a british medal from the crowd would love to see a british medalfrom mo farah. they haven't seen one since he delivered in the ten k race on the opening night. that was eight nights ago 110w. night. that was eight nights ago now. but there are plenty of chances in the relays, both the women's and the men's team in the four by 100. and the men's team, well, they came safely through this morning. the quartet of cj cj ujah, the fine young muchall blake —— nathaniel rich mitchell—bla ke narrowly young muchall blake —— nathaniel rich mitchell—blake narrowly missed out on a muddle. the usa could not go make off their perch yet again. great britain's ax100m women's team made the final with a season's best time. dina asher—smith missed out on the 200m. but they are also through.
but all eyes on morgan lake and katarina johnson—thompson. the decathlon is ongoing, it seems to be never—ending. the morning sessions go on late and they have to go out very quickly. ashley bryant is great britain only competitor in the decathlon. kevin mayer, the frenchman, has been leading. ashley brya nt frenchman, has been leading. ashley bryant is doing 0k, he has never really challenged. ashley bryant started the day in 16th place at the half—way stage of the decathlon. this morning saw the 110m hurdles, the discus and the pole vault, and they are under way in the javelin right now. he threw very well in the javelin, actually. the final event is always the 1500 metres in the big apple. —— in the decathlon. the decathlon finishes with the 1500m. the decathletes are such gladiators. i'll be back with more from the london stadium later. you know it has been a busy day of sport, all of that football. over to lizzie and john bennett now, with details of the opening saturday in the premier league and the rest of the day's sport.
thanks, 0lly. well, john, this is a dream start to the new premier league for neutrals. after last night's opening goal—fest, today has been equalling compelling. starting of course with champions chelsea, beaten 3—2 at home by burnley. 0k, chelsea had two players sent off, but they were poor enough to be booed off at half time. what went wrong? the big turning point was gary cahill said. treble challenge on steven defour. some debate as to whether it was a red card. i thought it was. we have to give credit to burnley. i don't think they will get enough credit for this performance because everybody will talk about how bad chelsea were in the first half, but really good performance. two goals for sam vokes, awarded with a screamer. conte will point to the fact that they didn't have a good transfer window. it looked like a weak team for me. they had a youngster starting the game. let's might hearfrom youngster starting the game. let's might hear from both youngster starting the game. let's might hearfrom both managers. very differing emotions. might hearfrom both managers. very differing emotionslj might hearfrom both managers. very differing emotions. i don't think they would have given us a chance
today. we came round here with a game that they had to. some of these game that they halite. someotthesel would - it game that they halite. someotthesel wo but $3; game that they halite. someotthesel wo but ii; with game that they halite. someotthesel wo b did 3; with game that they halite. someotthesel wo b didi; wit he get'” back 3g: back on eegtien is; the wing eet'gethtﬁe . e, eeetien, te the wine eet'gethtﬁe . e, i was pleased with - mentality it. i was pleased with the mentality of our players. i see the game of our players. we see the game through. all in all, it's a fantastic three points. the referee was outstanding fantastic three pl the . the referee we fantastic three pl the . the referee anywhere "e”e’ew”"ﬂ” ' ’ ' ’ "”"""*”””"ﬂ” ' ’ ' ’ "’e”"""e""’ ' ’ ' ’ our heat easily. and i think that we to reflect on the situation. have to reflect on the situation. because if we are able to stay in
the game, then anything can happen in the second half. not a happy looking man there, as you can understand. it was a great start to life in the premier league for huddersfield. they beat crystal palace 3—0. how much of this was bad palace and that huddersfield? i would be concerned ifi huddersfield? i would be concerned if i was a crystal palace fan. maybe the new manager is changing things too quickly. again, make sure that they get the credit. we talk about tra nsfer fees they get the credit. we talk about transfer fees being relatively cheap. two goals, dream debut for steve mooney. —— for steve mounie. patrick stewart is a huddersfield man, looking very happy! patrick, wait until we see the league table, you will be celebrating even more!
wonderful stuff for huddersfield. they will do well in the premier league this season, they have carried the momentum from last season. manager david wagner not getting carried away too early. listen, we have now played one game, the first premier league game ever in the club history! so we will not make one mistake and look too far ahead. we try now to recover as good as we can. and then we start the week and try to prepare as good as week and try to prepare as good as we can for the next home game. as things stand, you are top of the premier league! ok, ok! i think we are going to enjoy having david wagner in the premier league. everton, this was all about wayne rooney, going back to his boyhood club. it was a poor first half. rooney started and ended the move, about five or six players, crossed m, about five or six players, crossed in, brilliant header. wejust saw
jordan pickford making his premier league debut for everton. he made a great save near the end. the new signings like ramirez really playing well for evidence. but it was all about homecoming. it was his 199th premier league goal. he left everton in 2004, he's back now i'm back with a goal. on a personal note, i absolutely delighted to score the winning goal at goodison, it is a special home for me. a lot of relief and emotion coming out. it was an important goldust before half—time. obviously delighted in the end that it's turned out to be the winning goal. you know, all appreciation. i felt that was the right move for me to make. coming back, ifelt felt that was the right move for me to make. coming back, i felt at home as soofi to make. coming back, i felt at home as soon as i set foot on the ground the first day. i've been looking forward to this day for a long time. tha nkfully forward to this day for a long time. thankfully it's been a good day, a good result for us. obviously topped off by the winning goal. a good day for rooney and a winning start for everton. so, a winning start for everton, but liverpool were held to a late draw by watford.
it's been a difficult week forjurgen klopp's side, after phillipe coutinho put in a transfer request yesterday. patrick gearey reports. liverpool without philippe coutinho, temporary or permanent? is injured but in demand, from barcelona, no less. his sight offered wiggle room at corners. a loophole was located inside ten minutes. one down, but chin up, the jurgen inside ten minutes. one down, but chin up, thejurgen klopp way. after all, he has sadio mane. he can create and score goals. here, he did both. watford managers know that things change fast. marco silva, in three minutes his side were back ahead. clearing up for more untidy defending. this seems to have been a theme of the season's earliest days. liverpool's record signing drew her year gomes into a mistake. a penalty. roberto firmino did the mess. only a brief thank you, but that's their problem. —— did the rest. when firmino went very goal,
was there to make sure? for nearly three minutes into stoppage time, the scoring finished as it started, drama from a quansah. this time, miguel britos the scorer. a game to represent a league flawed but thrilling.|j flawed but thrilling. i think it is afair flawed but thrilling. i think it is a fair result, really, like we played a very good first half. they are team with a good intensity. i prepared our team as well to play, the attitude we showed this afternoon, we need to put it all in order. this is our house, we need to show something special for our fans as well. good, not too good in a few moments, and in the end. getting an equaliser, which was offside. but how i thought, which was obvious, because really in this line, he needs to see. but we don't have
enough direction in our game. we passed and passed and we couldn't see what we actually wanted. passed and passed and we couldn't see what we actually wantedm there any news on philippe coutinho's situation? during the game, coutinho's situation? during the a coutinho's situation? during the game, i've no idea, nothing has happened during the game. clear as mud, john! brighton's first ever game in the premier league is the late kick off at home to big spenders manchester city. brighton have just come close, but the game before that was dominated by city. gabrielle jesus has before that was dominated by city. gabriellejesus has had the best man is about chances for manchester united. he had a gold is allowed as well. because of handball. you can see the replay, he got a touch on his hand into the back of the net. jesus missed a good chance, but for brighton, is good for them to be backin brighton, is good for them to be back in the top flight. at the moment they are holding firm. it is 3-0. show us the rest of the day's
results ? show us the rest of the day's results? any others that you want to have a quick mention of? west brom had a poor end to last season. a really good win for them today. and a debutant scored, the egyptian international with a really good header. he will get a few goals this season. meanwhile, southampton will be frustrated. 0—0 draw against swa nsea. swa nsea be frustrated. 0—0 draw against swansea. swansea didn't have a shot on target. i know it is only weak one, but huddersfield fans, this is just for you! one, but huddersfield fans, this is just foryou! huddersfield one, but huddersfield fans, this is just for you! huddersfield town are top of the premier league! notjust for huddersfield fans, we should mention burnley as well. you are in the champions league places as well! take a photo of that, huddersfield fans, top of the premier league!m has been a busy day in the scottish premier league. we have had five matches, one of which was particularly important. st johnstone keeping up their 100 cents record,
"100 keeping up their 100 cents record, —— 100 cents record. there are a few teams that have a 100% record in the spl. one of them is stjohnstone at the top. on goals scored. celtic, hibernian and aberdeen still on 100%. it's been a pleasure, now we will move onto golf. hideki matsuyama will tee—off his third round at golf‘s uspga championship inafew round at golf‘s uspga championship in a few minute's time, bidding to become the first japanese player to wina become the first japanese player to win a major. he's tied with the american kevin kisner at eight under par at quail hollow — two shots clear of the field. rishi persad is following the action for the bbc in north carolina. well, thunderstorms predicted for earlier this week here at quail hollow five year arrived late on day two of the pga championship, meaning the second round was only completed earlier on today. some of the big names to miss the cut included phil mickelson, sergio garcia and justin rose. pretournament favourites jordan spieth and rory mcilroy. both made the cut and were out on court
now. too far behind to have a realistic chance of winning. at the top end of the leaderboard, america's kevin kisner, just on the driving range beside me, alongside ledecky matsuyama, they share the lead at eight under par, just two points ahead of jason lead at eight under par, just two points ahead ofjason day, who is on six under, just two shots behind the leaders. the leading british hope is england's paul casey, who struggled somewhat yesterday but managed to get it around so that he finished 80 13 under par, five shots behind the leaders. but he knows he is going to have to play better this weekend to stand the chance of landing that elusive first major. it is a very demanding golf course from the two green, which has been emphasised by the bermuda grass, which they've laid down on these greens. the greens are amazing, but you have to be in the right position. that works all the way back to the tea, getting the shots on the fairway, preferably on the right—hand side, i've not been doing that. sol on the right—hand side, i've not been doing that. so i need to improve. i scrambled back into position, but i've got to push on from here and find some form if i can. paul casey talking to richard
brassard. watch the action from quail hollow on the bbc red button from 7pm. and on bbc two from 10:30pm. some cricket for you... after losing their opening match in the women's super league, western storm have bounced back to beat loughborough lightning this afternoon. loughborough posted 108 in their 20 overs, with australian all—rounder elise perry top—scoring with 25. storm were always up with the chase, and completed a five—wicket victory with five ball to spare. they move up to third in the table. hull kr are still on course for a return to super league next season after a second straight win in the qualifiers... this time against leigh centurions. the championship side beat leigh — who finished second bottom of the super league, 20-16, second bottom of the super league, 20—16, as tim hague reports.... the ideal afternoon to enjoy rugby league in the attire of your choice. whatever the weather, leigh centurions and the rovers... leigh
went ahead. mortimore getting over early. their opponents had already slipped up once, they levelled matters with one of their own. and that was how things went throughout. back and forth, toe to toe. and then they were level with 12 minutes remaining, only forjosh drinkwater to give the hosts the advantage with a little help from the post. it meant we went into the final minutes with two points separating the sides, time for a captain to take charge. and he did. his second score of the game. could hull kr hang onto their narrow lead? of the game. could hull kr hang onto their narrow lead ? the of the game. could hull kr hang onto their narrow lead? the last player at the 80 minutes when way, just. having been relegated from the super league for the first time in ten yea rs league for the first time in ten years since october, hull kr are looking upwards again. just one other result from the super 8s qualifiers today. warrington wolves beat catalans dragons 52—24. that's two wins from two for warrington, who'll now be hopeful of a super league place for next season. that's it from the bbc sport centre.
