Simone Says

Wednesday, 28 July

‘I have to focus on my mental health’ Simone Biles, dubbed the greatest gymnast of all time, has withdrawn from two events at the Olympics. We speak to top gymnasts past and present – Team GB legend Beth Tweddle and British-Jamaican gymnast Danusia Francis – about the pressures of performing in front of billions of eyeballs. And a change to quarantine rules for double-jabbed people from the EU or US could finally reunite family and friends in England and Scotland. The BBC’s Transport Correspondent, Caroline Davies, has the details. Today’s Newscast was made by Maz Ebtehaj with Daniel Wittenberg, Ben Cooper and Rick Kelsey. The Studio Director was Emma Crowe. The Assistant Editor is Sam Bonham. The Editor is Dino Sofos
