I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Trump blasts Fed for blowing US recovery; German business confidence slides – business live

Rolling coverage of the latest economic and financial news

Donald Trump’s tweetstorm failed to address the fact that his trade dispute with China has been weighing on markets for some time.

Rupert Thompson, head of research at Kingswood, points out that investors are hoping for a breakthrough at the G20 meeting of world leaders on Friday and Saturday.

The meeting of Presidents Xi and Trump at the G20 gathering later this week will be critical.

Most likely, Trump will back away to some extent from the sharp increase in tariffs planned for early July. But a full-blown trade deal looks very unlikely. With equities riding high, the pressure on Trump to reach an early deal has been reduced.

One of the president’s top advisors, Kellyanne Conway, has been discussing Iran at the White House:

At WH driveway gaggle, @KellyannePolls says new sanctiions against Iran are coming, yet @POTUS doesn't want war & wants Iran to come to the negotiating table. She says he won't allow Iran to engage in nuclear blackmail, disrupt global oil markets or terrorize its own people. pic.twitter.com/lebT6BnqVb

Brian Hook said he had been holding extensive talks with US allies in the wake of the Gulf of Oman tanker attacks, when two vessels were damaged by explosions. He believed a global coalition to protect shipping was required.

Afghanistan chasing 263 to beat Bangladesh: Cricket World Cup 2019 – live!

Anyhow, thanks all for your company and comments - John Ashdown will be here presently to coax you through the chase. In the meantime, here’s something to read.

Related: When Ian Botham played king at the panto and the 1992 Cricket World Cup

Afghanistan bowled pretty well but let themselves down with their fielding, and probably lack the firepower to chase a decent total on a difficult pitch and slow outfield. If they’re going to get it, they probably need to go early, because once the fielders are back and the rate’s up, they’re in trouble.

However you look at it, the logic of a Brexit backstop refuses to yield

None of the options proposed as a solution to keeping the Irish border looks workable

The question, set less by Brussels than the logic of Brexit, is how the UK government can in one move leave the European union’s single market and customs while also maintaining the flow of trade and people on its one land border with the bloc in Ireland

The fact that the existence of the land border in question cost more than 3,600 lives over 30 years led to the British government in December 2017 restating its commitment to avoid “a hard border, including any physical infrastructure or related checks and controls”.
