I’m off on holiday tomorrow, so a final reminder from me to pick up the current . I’m in it writing about my last trip to France, and having breakfast next to Nicola Sturgeon - while Lothar Matthaus writes about meeting Trump and Putin...

Looking forward to IFAB clarifying what happens when you kick the ball so the sun sets it on fire, which happened to a schoolmate of mine (he told me).

Arsenal are open to letting Chelsea win the Europa League, my sources tell me. They stress this is their decision.

Roger Federer is 37 years old and just won 36 games in a final he didn’t win. Build a statue.

I’m in a Donegal pub where the general anti-Kerry prejudice is seeing me through. Away for next round of matches, but up for Mayo-Donegal(!) in early August

They’ve got the cricket on one of the tellies so I’ll know (if not fully appreciate) if England win
