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.

Norwich City v Brighton & Hove Albion: Premier League – live!

38 min: Lewis is booked for cynically blocking Lamptey, who was working his way down the right.

37 min: More space for Mooy down the right. He loops long, the ball dropping towards Trossard, who should volley first time for goal from close range, but opts to cushion a pass towards Connolly instead. A very good chance is gone.

UK ponders joining EU's coronavirus vaccine scheme

Ministers said to be weighing benefits against broader desire to cut ties with Brussels

The UK is assessing whether to join an EU programme to help secure a potential coronavirus vaccine in what could mark a bellwether for post-Brexit cooperation.

In what the Daily Express described as a “Brexit backtrack”, UK officials are thought to be considering the advantages of being part of the EU plan because the bloc would have greater purchasing power to strike deals with multinational drug companies.

UK coronavirus live: pubs and hair salons reopen in England as lockdown eases - latest updates

Follow all the day’s coronavirus news as the easing of lockdown measures in England also reopens restaurants, theme parks, galleries, hotels, cinemas and bingo halls

Rail services in the UK will be increased by around 15% on Sunday, industry body the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) said.

As demand increases due to the relaxation of coronavirus restrictions in parts of the UK this weekend, services will increase from around 70% of pre-lockdown levels to 85%.

Here’s a rather amusing report from Press Association on pubs reopening in Chester:

Drinkers have enjoyed their first post-lockdown pints as pubs reopened in Chester but remained shuttered just a few miles away over the border in Wales.

Derby day at Epsom – live!

I am a fan of ITV Racing but at times the coverage is crying out for a presenter such as former Timeform and Channel 4 Racing pundit Jim McGrath – someone who has a bet but also recognises the importance of proper, intelligent analysis. That was most definitely the case this morning on the Opening Show when the subject of the Derby draw was discussed. My email ‘in-tray’ has been bulging with news about English King since Frankie Dettori was booked to ride the horse. But the fact that the horse is drawn in stall one has had an impact on the colt’s chances and has been a legitimate source of discussion.

Indeed, a spokesperson from horse-bettors.com pointed out to me today: “English King was all the rage for the Derby minutes after he crossed the line in his Classic trial. His price came under further pressure as it was confirmed Frankie Dettori would take the ride, but since getting drawn in the worst stall possible, even with the Frankie Factor, that development was enough to see the market leader double in price from 2-1 to 4-1.”

How decisive is the draw in the @Investec Derby?

To the many of you who would love to be at Epsom today, the hearty message from a makeshift press room is: wish you were here. It’s been fun to see some familiar faces for the first time since March but the 20 or so of us seated behind laptops at socially distanced tables are struggling to create much of an atmosphere, to be brutally honest. Conditions are unexpectedly Spartan, with all the grandstand doors propped open to ensure air circulation. On a cold, windy day, this is causing problems for the circulation in my fingers, which have not been so pale since that day at Kelso when Zaynar got beat at 1-14. Winners are going to be needed, or the long drive home will feel like the retreat from Moscow.

The Chinese agriculture ministry has pushed back on a study into the ‘G4’ strain of swine flu, claiming it is not new and does not infect or sicken humans easily.

Earlier this week a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), warned that the G4 strain could become a potential “pandemic virus”.

Afghanistan has announced the first death of a high profile official from Covid-19, as the government reported it had reached the peak of the virus outbreak.

Yosuf Ghazanfar, President Ashraf Ghani’s Special Envoy for Economic Development and Poverty Reduction, died from the virus on Friday night. A main player in president Ghani’s 2019 presidential campaign, a state commission headed by the president’s chief of staff is to be tasked with conducting his funeral and burial process.

The health ministry said on Saturday that the country had reached the peak of coronavirus with 32,672 confirmed cases,including 348 new infections, with the number of deaths has risen by 7 to 826.
