    A European Union (EU) flies alongside a British Union flag, also known as a Union Jack in London.Jason Alden | Bloomberg Creative Photos | Getty Images LONDON — The United Kingdom and the European Union are due to enter new negotiations on Friday in an attempt to avoid a looming trade war. The U.K. officially left the EU in January 2020 and since then a number of new trade arrangements have come into place. However, the agreements now look to be under threat as the U.K. complains about difficulties in implementing the required checks on goods moving from Great Britain to Northern Ireland. The nature of this border post-Brexit has been a major sticking point in negotiations between the U.K. government and the European Union. Great Britain includes England, Scotland and Wales, but not Northern Ireland; Northern Ireland is, however, part of the U.K. The European Commission, the executive arm of the EU, proposed last month to adapt certain parts of the trade deal in an effort to make it easier for these checks to take place. But EU officials have since complained...
    These are the fresh faces of some of the heroic 'boy soldiers' who fought for their country in the First World War.  Boys as young as 13 served overseas as a patriotic fervour swept over Britain in the war with Germany.  Many who joined up believed that the war would be over in a matter of months, but it in fact lasted for more than 4 years.  The fresh-faced boys participated in some of the war's bloodiest battles, including Ypres, the Somme and Gallipoli.   It is believed that more than 400,000 underage soldiers signed up to 'do their duty', with quarter of a million entering battle and thousands dying.  Their inspiring stories are told by historian Richard Van Emden in his new book, Boy Soldiers of the Great War. Whilst some of the boys mentioned in Mr Van Emden's book were among the more than 800,000 Britons to die in the conflict, others survived the war.   On the outbreak of war in 1914, Britain was was the only major power to not begin with a mass conscripted army.  When it...

    ANDY MURRAY will skip Great Britain's Davis Cup Finals campaign, because he doesn't feel that he 'deserves' to play. The Scot, 34, was GB's hero back in 2015 - winning 11 of 12 rubbers as Leon Smith's side won the prestigious competition. 3Andy Murray was left frustrated in Indian WellsCredit: Getty Images - Getty 3Murray, 34, lost 6-4, 7-6 to Alexander Zverev in the California desertCredit: Getty Now in a new format, the Finals won't finish until December 5, just three weeks before players are set to fly out to Australia.

    VANCOUVER (AP) — South Africa and the U.S. both went undefeated through the group stage and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Vancouver Sevens world series tournament on Saturday, which is missing many of the top ranked teams due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. Vancouver was the last tournament to be staged before the COVID-19 pandemic leading to the cancelation of the rest of the series in March 2020.

    CONWY, Wales (AP) — Rose Zhang won both her matches and Allisen Corpuz delivered a big run of birdies Friday as the Americans rallied from a three-point deficit to forge a tie going into the final session of the Curtis Cup. One day after Great Britain & Ireland won four of the six matches and halved another, the Americans returned the favor at Conwy Golf Club. Zhang and Rachel Heck, Nos. 1 and 2 in the women’s world amateur ranking, seized control early in the opening match of foursomes for a 3-and-2 victory over Louise Duncan and Hannah Darling, setting the tone for the day. “They were definitely inspired and fired up to play better today and I really didn’t have to do much pep talking,” U.S. captain Sarah Ingram said. “I know that they are all real fighters and that they would follow up a tough day with a really good day.” The Americans won two matches and halved the other to pull within a point. In the afternoon fourballs, Corpuz ran off four birdies in a five-hole stretch...

If you do not see the narration correctly click HERE. We tell you all the last hour of what happens in the Moto 3 classification at the Silverstone circuit, of the British GP with our live commentary.
    How long are the weeks when we don’t have motorcycle races! Luckily, this week we do have to live again the emotion of seeing the fastest pilots on the planet battling. Also, they do it in the British GP, on the legendary Silverstone track, a track that has been in the Motorcycle World Championship for more than a decade and is usually synonymous with a lot of tension in the race. We remember that Silverstone is one of the most curvy circuits on the MotoGP calendar, very different from the Red Bull Ring in Austria a couple of weeks ago. On this track, located just over an hour and a half by road to the northwest of London, the pilots have to travel 5.9 kilometers to complete each lap, in which they run into eight left and ten right turns. The longest straight is 770 meters. If we take a look at the main data, Jorge Lorenzo is the premier class rider with the most wins (3), while Marc Márquez is the man with the most poles on...
    (CNN)At least 30 athletes competing in the Tokyo Paralympics identify as LGBTQ -- a new high for LGBTQ representation at the Paralympic Games, by one count. That's more than double the amount of athletes who publicly identified as LGBTQ in the 2016 Rio Paralympics, according to the SB Nation blog Outsports, which conducted a similar count of LGBTQ participants for the Summer Olympics. Former Paralympians helped the blog compile the list of LGBTQ athletes competing this month in Tokyo. The competitors this year include Asya Miller, a US gold medalist in goalball, a sport for athletes with visual impairments; engaged wheelchair basketball players Laurie Williams and Robyn Love from Team Great Britain; and Edênia Garcia, a Brazilian swimmer with four gold medals. Asya Miller is a Paralympics veteran who's won gold in goalball. The Paralympics began this week in Tokyo, with more than 4,400 athletes competing. Both the Paralympics and Olympics saw an improvement in the number of LGBTQ athletes this year, according to Outsports. The Summer Olympics in Tokyo saw at least 168 LGBTQ athletes, by the blog's...

    Although it will take some time to take effect, Great Britain may write off the men’s 4×100 silver medal, a race in which they lost gold in extremis by one hundred to Italy last Saturday. The positive of one of his relievers, Chinjindu Ujah, who made the first post, with s23, a drug that helps to build muscle, framed in the group of selective androgen receptor modulators, makes it impossible for them to hold the medal. Ujah, 27, is one of four athletes hunted by the Intregrity Unit of the International Athletics Federation (World Athletics), an independent unit created under the mandate of Sebastian Coe, and which has also notified the positives of Sadik Mikhou, a 1,500 Moroccan; Georgian shotgun Benik Abramyan and Kenyan sprinter Mark Otieno Odhiambo. The substance, known since the end of the first decade of the 21st century, When it was developed for osteoporosis and muscle atrophy – in its first tests it was detected that it left mice sterile – it is a non-steroidal anabolic, whose action is limited exclusively to the muscle, helping it...

    Knockout GB WE could not be prouder of our Olympians. They have been a knockout, and it was fitting that Lauren Price’s boxing masterclass should earn Team GB’s final gold medal of the Tokyo Games. 1Lauren Price earned Team GB’s final gold medal of the Tokyo GamesCredit: AP Great Britain have once again punched above their weight. Our fourth position on the medal table is all the more amazing when you consider the comparative populations of the USA, China and Japan. That really is battling against the odds. There is something truly remarkable about the British sporting spirit. INCREDIBLE DEDICATION Behind every single medal is a story of incredible dedication, countless hours of training, Herculean determination and sheer courage to overcome all obstacles, including sometimes life-threatening injuries. As Boris Johnson said, they have shown the very best of this country. We salute them all. And if you think they’re inspirational, wait until you see our Paralympians. Bills of frights TOO many hard-pressed families and OAPs are penalised with over-priced default ­tariffs because they stay loyal to their greedy energy...

    THE "shark" sighting in Dorset will be the first of DOZENS this year as they head for Britain due to climate change, experts have claimed.

This time, however, there were no miracles, just a mauling. GB could have no complaints, and Giselle Ansley’s penalty corner strike came with the game effectively already lost. They had made a bright start and then showed defensive resolve to cancel the Dutch out in the scoreless first quarter. But two goals in the space of barely 60 seconds at the start of the second quarter were hammer...
    Great Britain’s Tom Bosworth likened the accommodations Olympic race walkers were receiving to prison as he and his colleagues prepare for their event later in the week in Tokyo. Olympic race walkers were being housed in Sapporo Odori Park. Bosworth took issue with the so-called "cold slop" the athletes were allegedly being served. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "Any chance, in the week of our race, we could get some food? Like meals? Not cold slop, steamed onions or partly cooked pasta? This is the ‘pinnacle of sport.’ Sapporo feels like a prison," he tweeted, according to The Guardian. "Welcome to the sweaty school dining hall that a lifetime of hard work gets you. Any chance you could be a little athlete focused? Any chance we could have some where to get some fresh air aside from the 900m training lap we have? A cup of coffee wouldn’t go amiss."

    08/02/2021 at 06:00 CEST The Spanish women’s field hockey delegation faces the quarterfinals in Tokyo 2020 against Great Britain after accessing as second in the group. Already with Adrian Lock, until now isolated for positive in Covid-19, Spain wants to make history and win its second Olympic medal in the history of women’s field hockey. The Spanish team, which has gone from less to more in these Olympic Games, easily defeated host Japan (1-4) and recovered from the initial two defeats to reach the quarterfinals for the second time in a row. The victories over China (2-0) and New Zealand (1-2) have quickly made us forget the matches against Argentina (3-0) and Australia (3-1). Spain is not favorite for an Olympic medal in the women’s field hockey team: according to forecasts, those of Adrian Lock would not access the semifinals and would be in sixth position. Their rival, Great Britain, which also registers three wins and two losses on the other side of the group, is precisely the fourth best selection of...
    While on the campaign trail at a Kent funfair before the 1950 election, a 24-year-old Margaret Roberts – later to become Britain's first female Prime Minister – stopped at a booth to meet a fortune-teller. 'You will be great – as great as Churchill,' the future Mrs Thatcher was told. It was a comparison that would be drawn many times in the decades to come. Indeed, she would be likened to him in a way no other Prime Minister ever has been, before or since. Like his own time in office, hers would change the face of British politics. It would also see an apparent blossoming of the 'special relationship' between Britain and the US, with Mrs Thatcher and her opposite number in the White House, Ronald Reagan, united in their devotion to the victorious wartime leader. 'Churchillian rhetoric,' the historian Richard Aldous has noted, 'became a consistent and well-choreographed feature of Reagan and Thatcher's shared public performance.' Reagan hung a poster of Churchill in the White House, and filled his administration with devotees of the great man. Margaret Thatcher,...
    With a team made up of Jessica Learmonth, Jonathan Brownlee, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee, Great Britain got this Saturday the first Olympic gold in history in mixed triathlon relay, discipline that premiered at the Tokyo Games. The British quartet won with a 1h23: 41 time, followed by United States, to 14 seconds, and from France, the world champion, who entered third at 23 seconds. Spain, with Mario Mola as the last reliever after the posts of Anna Godoy, Fernando Alarza and Mriam Casillas, he entered tenth at 2:50 minutes from the winner and just 8 seconds from the diploma positions, his most realistic goal at the beginning of the test. The mixed triathlon relays, which debuted in the Olympic program, were contested by teams consisting of two women and two men, each of whom had to travel the distance. spersprint distance of the three disciplines: 300 meters of swimming, 6.8 km cycling and 2 km running.

    Updated 07/31/2021 – 05:35 Great Britain demanded the attention in the pool after the pulse that the United States and Australia sustain. In the mixed 4×100, a test with more strategy than it seems, the quartet made up of Dawson, Peaty, Guy and Hopkin broke the world record by almost a second to leave it at 3: 37.58 and beat China (3: 38.86) , which was left without the record (the previous one was his with 3: 38.41) and without the gold. The bronze went to Australia (3: 38.95). The fiasco was the United States that finished fifth. It was the only relay that used the formula of placing the two women at the intermediate posts, and it was a complete wreck. Espaldista Ryan Murphy, who if the 4×100 styles were not fixed on Sunday will go without a gold and go for four, could not even gain an advantage with the Italian Ceccon (Italy was fourth) and Lydia Jacoby made a very weak breaststroke in result ( 1.05: 09), but meritorious if you consider that you swim with...

    Lawrence Okoye put his Olympic dreams on hold eight years ago to launch a nomadic NFL career with the 49ers. It didn’t work out so well, nor did his return to the Olympics on Friday. Okoye failed to register a qualifying mark in his three throws in the discus for Great Britain in Tokyo’s Olympic Stadium. Okoye, 29, placed 12th at his hometown London Olympics in 2012 before joining the 49ers as a defensive lineman who’d never played American football. Then-coach Jim Harbaugh marveled at Okoye’s 6-foot-6 physique, saying “He’s just an Adonis. Just a great physical specimen of a man. Our creator created a beautiful man.” He never amounted to a beautiful football player. Okoye was a pet project of Jim Tomsula, who was the defensive line coach before replacing Harbaugh in 2015 as 49ers coach. Tomsula’s roots in NFL Europe gave him perfect experience to mentor Okoye, who praised Tomsula’s promotion in 2015 and noted, “I’m so happy for him. Without him, I wouldn’t still be in the league.” A minor knee issue...

    All the favorites qualified for the quarterfinals of the Olympic Games, which has left a very even picture with four high-tension duels. The reissue of the grand final of the World Cup in France between the Netherlands and the United States stands out. In addition, a Sweden in a state of grace meets host Japan, solid Great Britain will face Sam Kerr’s Australia and two myths will face: Sinclair vs Marta. The anticipated final No one could have foreseen that the United States would end the first phase with just one victory and against weak New Zealand. The current world champions are far from their best version but they have a cast of stars that can wake up at any moment. Rapinoe, Ertz, Mewis, Lavelle, Press, Heatl, Morgan or Lloyd are names to at least have respect. However, ahead will be the steamroller from the Netherlands. The Dutch have beaten all the scoring records in three games and Miedema has already scored eight goals in just three games. They have been murderous in attack, but weak in defense. A high-voltage...
    Lewis Hamilton He asked publicly in the last races for a reaction from his team. He demanded that his set present improvements to his car to hunt down some Red bull who have won 5 races in a row, four of them for Verstappen. The Englishman, 32 points behind the Dutch, said that in the last Grands Prix it was impossible to keep up with those of Milton Keynes, which from Paul Ricard exhibited great straight speed thanks to improved engine reliability, new fuel and a minimalist rear wing. The set of Brackley he listened to his star and in this British GP, Hamilton and Bottas will have some news with which Lewis he hopes he can fight Max. “It’s not a huge (update). There are a lot of changes to the car, but it’s not a massive update in terms of the difference (to Red Bull) that we’ve seen in racing. But it will definitely help us close that gap quickly, ”he said at the press conference prior to the British GP. “A lot of work has been...
    This weekend, at the 2021 F1 British GP A new experimental weekend format debuts, with a qualifying session on Friday that will serve to establish the starting order for Saturday’s qualifying race, which in turn will decide pole and grid for Sunday’s race. This leaves Fernando Alonso a greater opportunity to take advantage of his great starts, since from the position he achieves in the qualifying on Friday, he will be able to try to win places starting from a standstill at the start of the qualifying race to the sprint on Saturday and do the same on Sunday. For this reason, the Spaniard made it clear that on Saturday he had to go out with an aggressive mentality, although without forgetting that the points are distributed on Sunday (in the sprint appointment only 3 points will be given to the first, two to the second and one to the third), So he stressed as essential not to suffer any accident that relegates him to the last places on Sunday. “We have to be aggressive on Saturday, but smart, as...
