Well done England. The team has done us proud and my heart goes out to our three players who missed the penalties. And the racist abuse on line that has followed is simply appalling and I condemn it in the strongest terms possible. Those words 'penalty shootout' sent a shiver through me last night as memories of other such conclusions sprang to mind. What a cruel way to end what has been a remarkable journey for our young and talented team. However, sport is all about winning and losing and I am confident that the team and their manager have gained invaluable experience, which will serve them well in the World Cup. I was sorry to read there had been 49 arrests, with 19 police officers injured. Again, this is totally unacceptable, with a minority of thugs always on hand, it seems, to ruin sporting fixtures such as last night's. Beforehand, we enjoyed another feast at Wimbledon. Novak Djokovic won his sixth Wimbledon title, beating the Italian Matteo Berrettini by three sets to one. Matteo raised all expectations by taking the first set. But the master kept his cool in another extraordinary performance, and came through. What a day.
