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.

Klopp praises Arteta, Cooper’s Forest deal, England v USA: football countdown – live

Klopp gives an injury update: “Curtis Jones was in training yesterday … he’s closest … nothing new about Naby [Keita] and Ox [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain] are still a little bit away. One new injury is Arthur Melo, in the last session before the Rangers game … he just injured a muscle … we have to wait for further assessment.

“Robbo [Andy Robertson] is running a lot, looks like he’s close, but probably Curtis is closest.”

The Centre for the Less Good Idea: To What End review – sketches from South Africa

Barbican, London
There are good ideas in this collection of pieces from William Kentridge’s experimental performance studio but they lack depth and development

South African artist William Kentridge currently has an acclaimed exhibition at the Royal Academy in London. Here’s another project he’s behind, The Centre for the Less Good Idea (the name comes from a Tswana proverb: “If the good doctor can’t cure you, find the less good doctor”). It is a studio in Johannesburg: an experimental performance lab, Kentridge tells us before this show, and a place for artists to follow their impulses rather than create with an audience in mind. So as the first people to see this staged work outside South Africa, what can we take away?

On offer are six short pieces drawing on dance, theatre and music, and there are certainly some good ideas. Thulisile Binda’s The Weep of the Whips uses a leather sjambok, associated with violent apartheid-era policing. At first the whip seems to have its own voice, a startlingly sharp swoosh as it slices the air. But Binda takes control, standing with solid power, circling the whip in wide arcs like a superhero, then letting the momentum of it lift her feet off the ground. There’s an elemental power, and lots of thematic potential.

At the Pit, Barbican, London, until 9 October

Bank of England must ‘stay the course’ fighting inflation despite pain; house prices fall and insolvencies climb – business live

Deputy governor Dave Ramsden says “however difficult the consequences might be for the economy, the MPC must stay the course” on interest rates

Britain’s housing sector could soon shift from being a seller’s market to a buyer’s market, predicts Karen Noye, mortgage expert at Quilter:

Rising interest rates will simply make mortgages less affordable. This will precipitate more people to put their houses on the market so they can downsize and achieve lower monthly payments. When more houses hit the market there is naturally more choice and crucially more room for bargaining. The seller’s market, we’ve been witnessing for the past few years quickly becomes a buyer’s market.

The problem is buyers are also struggling massively with the cost-of-living crisis so demand is also set to soften, therefore those that can still afford to move will have more choice and more leverage to put in lower offers and house prices drop.

UK and Ireland agree to work together on post-Brexit arrangements – live

UK and Ireland agree to do ‘everything possible’ to restore power sharing in Northern Ireland

The UK and Ireland have agreed to do “everything possible” to restore power-sharing in Northern Ireland, following a meeting of the British-Irish intergovernmental conference in London.

The Irish foreign affairs minister Simon Coveney and the UK’s Northern Ireland secretary Chris Heaton-Harris met in London today – alongside the Irish justice minister Helen McEntee and the UK’s Northern Ireland minister Steve Baker.

The UK and Irish governments reaffirmed their commitment to doing everything possible to facilitate the reestablishment of the executive by 28 October and the full functioning of all of the political institutions established by the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement including the North South Ministerial Council.

They agreed on the importance of respecting the agreement in totality.

The conference discussed the approach to the legacy of Northern Ireland’s past and the value of further engagement on this crucial issue, in particular the Irish government’s concerns with the UK government’s proposed legislation and how those concerns might be addressed.

In terms of setting up a central bank, we would start that process as soon as Scotland voted for independence. That central bank would be the provider of advice to the Scottish government on these matters, it would be the lender of last resort for our financial services industry, it would require reserves that could cover these limited functions in that first period.

We have said, and this is my party’s position, that we would move from using the pound, we would continue to use the pound after independence ... and we would move to a Scottish pound when the economic conditions were right.

Superdry returns to profit despite talks on £70m debt pile

Founder Julian Dunkerton says being ‘cool again’ with TikTok generation helped turn previous £37m loss into £18m profit

Superdry is in talks with its banks to renegotiate up to £70m debt, the fashion retailer revealed on Friday, but investors shrugged off concerns to send shares soaring more than 14% as founder Julian Dunkerton announced a return to profit.

Dunkerton claimed Superdry “was cool again”, with strong demand from the TikTok generation for items such as parachute pants and Afghan coats, as he revealed pre tax profits of £18m, a bounce back from a loss of almost £37m a year before as sales rose almost 10% to £610m in the year to 30 April.
