Tonight at Ten, Donald Trump at loggerheads with US intelligence

:00:00.:00:00.

officials over allegations of Russian cyber hacking.

:00:07.:00:11.

Earlier today, the President-elect met with intelligence chiefs.

:00:12.:00:13.

He claimed there was no evidence Russia affected the result

:00:14.:00:17.

But tonight, the intelligence agencies stated "with high

:00:18.:00:21.

confidence" that the Russians had tried to boost the Trump campaign -

:00:22.:00:25.

We'll have the latest from Washington on the growing

:00:26.:00:30.

tension between the President-elect and the intelligence community, just

:00:31.:00:32.

In Florida, a gun attack at a busy airport leaves five people dead

:00:33.:00:37.

The Shropshire man who's terminally ill -

:00:38.:00:41.

and the latest legal challenge for the right to die.

:00:42.:00:45.

I have a right to determine how I should die, and more

:00:46.:00:53.

A visit to China's most polluted city, as the country struggles

:00:54.:01:00.

with the worst winter smog of recent years.

:01:01.:01:04.

And Chris Froome talks to us about the damage done

:01:05.:01:06.

to cycling by allegations of doping and misconduct.

:01:07.:01:13.

And coming up in Sportsday on BBC News: All the day's stories,

:01:14.:01:16.

including action from the FA Cup third round's opening

:01:17.:01:19.

game between West Ham and Manchester City.

:01:20.:01:43.

President Putin did try to boost Donald Trump's campaign for the

:01:44.:01:52.

presidency, according to a report published tonight by US intelligence

:01:53.:01:56.

officials. The report was released shortly after intelligence chiefs

:01:57.:01:59.

had briefed Mr Trump on their findings. The President-elect

:02:00.:02:04.

insisted that any cyber espionage by Russia, China or anyone else, had

:02:05.:02:07.

not influenced the result of the contest. But he is now ordered a

:02:08.:02:10.

plan to be delivered within 90 days of taking office of developing an

:02:11.:02:16.

aggressive reserve -- response to any cyber attacks as Nick Bryant

:02:17.:02:17.

tells us. American intelligence tonight

:02:18.:02:23.

released its explosive report, claiming Vladimir Putin personally

:02:24.:02:27.

ordered an influence campaign, to help Donald Trump win the presidency

:02:28.:02:32.

by denigrating Hillary Clinton and harming her electability.

:02:33.:02:37.

It concludes, the Kremlin had a clear preference

:02:38.:02:39.

Donald Trump today described the investigation as a political

:02:40.:02:42.

witchhunt by adversaries badly beaten in the election.

:02:43.:02:44.

He rubbished the notion that he achieved a Kremlin assisted victory.

:02:45.:02:48.

But US intelligence claims it wasn't just the billionaire

:02:49.:02:51.

who celebrated his unexpected success on election night.

:02:52.:02:55.

Intercepted conversations reportedly picked up senior figures

:02:56.:02:58.

in the Russian government rejoicing, too, among them officials said to be

:02:59.:03:02.

At Trump Tower tonight, he was given a classified briefing

:03:03.:03:07.

by America's top intelligence officials, who claim the Russians

:03:08.:03:10.

tried harder to hack computers of the Democratic National Committee

:03:11.:03:14.

than those at Republican headquarters, and that

:03:15.:03:17.

delivered stolen e-mails to the WikiLeaks website

:03:18.:03:22.

to help him move from his penthouse in Manhattan to the White House.

:03:23.:03:26.

Never before has a President-elect been so openly scornful of America's

:03:27.:03:30.

spies, or so disparaging about their work.

:03:31.:03:34.

But the Trump team says he's right to be cautious,

:03:35.:03:37.

not least because the US intelligence community has got it

:03:38.:03:41.

wrong before, over Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.

:03:42.:03:46.

In a statement after the meeting, Mr Trump said that Russia, China,

:03:47.:03:49.

other countries and outside groups are consistently trying to break

:03:50.:03:53.

through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions

:03:54.:03:56.

and organisations, including the Democratic National Committee.

:03:57.:04:03.

But he added, "there was absolutely no effect

:04:04.:04:05.

Tellingly, he did not single out Russia for blame.

:04:06.:04:10.

But Vice President Joe Biden has told him to accept the intelligence

:04:11.:04:13.

findings pointing the finger at the Kremlin.

:04:14.:04:16.

The idea that you know more than the intelligence community

:04:17.:04:23.

knows seems like saying, "I know more about physics

:04:24.:04:26.

I didn't read the book, I just know I know more".

:04:27.:04:30.

Relations between President Obama and President Putin have

:04:31.:04:38.

had a Cold War chill, and Donald Trump has

:04:39.:04:42.

Speaking to the BBC today, the outgoing Secretary of State,

:04:43.:04:47.

I would encourage him to engage with Russia

:04:48.:04:52.

and to try to find that common ground, but not at the expense

:04:53.:04:56.

of rolling over and losing the values and principles,

:04:57.:04:58.

or interests that we need to protect as we do so.

:04:59.:05:04.

Donald Trump tonight expressed tremendous respect

:05:05.:05:07.

for America's spies, but he still clearly believe

:05:08.:05:09.

the allegations of a Kremlin conspiracy are being used

:05:10.:05:12.

One of the most noticeable trends in American politics over the last 25

:05:13.:05:29.

years has been partisan attempts to delegitimise presidents. With Bill

:05:30.:05:32.

Clinton, it was a personal scandal. With George W Bush it was the

:05:33.:05:37.

contested 2000 election, the Florida recount and the fact conservative

:05:38.:05:41.

leaning Supreme Court intervened in his favour. With Barack Obama it was

:05:42.:05:45.

the campaign led by Donald Trump that claimed he wasn't even a US

:05:46.:05:49.

citizen. And political opponents of Donald Trump are going to seize on

:05:50.:05:55.

this report and say that it creates a big question over the validity of

:05:56.:05:59.

his electoral victory, even though the intelligence community has made

:06:00.:06:03.

no assessment over whether boats were changed or opinions were

:06:04.:06:07.

altered. -- whether boats were changed or opinions were altered.

:06:08.:06:10.

With me now is our security correspondent, Gordon Corera.

:06:11.:06:14.

You have looked at these findings. What do they tell us? The most

:06:15.:06:20.

significant line is the first line, we assess with high confidence that

:06:21.:06:24.

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign to influence the

:06:25.:06:29.

election, not crackers, not officials in the Kremlin, Vladimir

:06:30.:06:33.

Putin himself. What you get is a story of how American intelligence

:06:34.:06:37.

believed he did that. How at one point, when they thought Hillary

:06:38.:06:41.

Clinton might win, they sought to delegitimise the whole process. And

:06:42.:06:44.

another point they sort of support Trump and denigrate Hillary Clinton.

:06:45.:06:48.

I did that through propaganda as well as cyber attacks. As a whole,

:06:49.:06:53.

is it plausible? Yes. Is it convincing? Well, I'm not sure it

:06:54.:06:58.

will be to sceptics, because actually what you don't get in the

:06:59.:07:01.

report is the hard evidence. That's undoubtedly secret material which

:07:02.:07:03.

the intelligence community might have, but which isn't in the report.

:07:04.:07:07.

There's no technical details of hacking. One thing which is not in

:07:08.:07:11.

the report but it which I've been told incidentally is that British

:07:12.:07:16.

intelligence, GCHQ, was the first to spot the significant breach into the

:07:17.:07:19.

Democratic party and reported it to its American counterparts. But

:07:20.:07:23.

that's not in the report. Where are we left? We've had clash between a

:07:24.:07:29.

president who is worried about his legitimacy and an intelligence

:07:30.:07:31.

community worried about its credibility. They have both set out

:07:32.:07:34.

their stalls today. But I don't think it's a clash that either side

:07:35.:07:37.

are actually going to win. In offence, both will come out damaged.

:07:38.:07:42.

America will still come out divided. I think the only people who might be

:07:43.:07:46.

left smiling or America's adversaries, people like, if you

:07:47.:07:51.

believe this report, Vladimir Putin Gordon Corera, thank you.

:07:52.:07:55.

At least five people have been killed and eight injured,

:07:56.:07:57.

after a gunman opened fire at Fort Lauderdale International

:07:58.:07:59.

The man, who's in custody, is said to have taken the gun out

:08:00.:08:04.

of a bag that he'd checked in and opened fire

:08:05.:08:06.

Passengers ran onto the tarmac outside, where they're currently

:08:07.:08:09.

being held while the police search the building.

:08:10.:08:11.

Our North America correspondent, James Cook, has the latest.

:08:12.:08:15.

A mundane task at a busy airport has turned into a scene of horror.

:08:16.:08:19.

Passengers, who seconds earlier were collecting their bags,

:08:20.:08:21.

Survivors say there were desperate attempts to save lives.

:08:22.:08:32.

We heard the noise, thought it was firecrackers

:08:33.:08:36.

We looked again and we saw him with the gun going up and down.

:08:37.:08:46.

Once he was done with the ammunition, he threw his gun down.

:08:47.:08:52.

He basically threw the gun on the ground and he laid

:08:53.:08:56.

on the ground, face down, spread eagle.

:08:57.:08:58.

For hundreds who fled the airport, the terror was not over.

:08:59.:09:09.

Rumours of another gunman sent people running from the terminal,

:09:10.:09:12.

but they were just rumours, as the local sheriff confirmed.

:09:13.:09:15.

There has been no shooting at any place else

:09:16.:09:38.

other than downstairs at terminal two.

:09:39.:09:42.

The subject is being interviewed by a

:09:43.:09:55.

team of FBI agents and homicide detectives.

:09:56.:09:57.

The subject is being interviewed by a

:09:58.:10:11.

team of FBI agents and homicide detectives.

:10:12.:10:13.

The suspect is reported to have flown into Fort Lauderdale

:10:14.:10:16.

with a weapon checked into his luggage legally.

:10:17.:10:20.

A senior US politicians said the man was

:10:21.:10:31.

carrying a military ID card in the name of Esteban Santiago.

:10:32.:10:37.

The shooter is in custody, according to TSA.

:10:38.:10:40.

As we get information we will pass it on.

:10:41.:10:42.

The focus is turning to the investigation.

:10:43.:10:45.

The motive is not clear but terrorism has not been

:10:46.:10:49.

In the United States, those phrases, these pictures, now

:10:50.:10:52.

A man from Shropshire who's terminally ill with motor neurone

:10:53.:10:58.

disease has started a legal challenge to secure the right

:10:59.:10:59.

Noel Conway claims the law as it stands condemns people like him

:11:00.:11:04.

It's the first challenge of its kind since MPs rejected an attempt

:11:05.:11:08.

to change the law two years ago, and it's being backed

:11:09.:11:10.

by the campaign group Dignity in Dying, as our medical

:11:11.:11:15.

I fear very soon I shall be entombed in my own body,

:11:16.:11:28.

and the thought of that fills me with absolute horror.

:11:29.:11:32.

Day by day, Noel Conway is gradually losing all strength in his body.

:11:33.:11:39.

Increasingly, he relies on his wife, Carol.

:11:40.:11:41.

He's too weak to take his own life, so when his condition gets worse,

:11:42.:11:43.

he wants a doctor to be allowed to give him a lethal dose.

:11:44.:11:49.

It's my body. I have a right to die.

:11:50.:11:51.

I have a right to determine how I should die.

:11:52.:11:53.

And more importantly, when I should die.

:11:54.:11:55.

And I want to do so when I have a degree of dignity remaining to me.

:11:56.:11:59.

Noel often relies on a ventilator to help him breathe.

:12:00.:12:01.

He's registered with the Swiss suicide group Dignitas,

:12:02.:12:03.

but will soon be unable to travel, so he's challenging the law here.

:12:04.:12:08.

Our current law condemns people like me to unimaginable suffering.

:12:09.:12:14.

I'm just heading, really, on a slow, slippery slope to hell.

:12:15.:12:23.

Noel was a keen walker, climber and skier.

:12:24.:12:26.

His family support his right to die but don't want to play

:12:27.:12:30.

It places me in an intolerable position.

:12:31.:12:36.

We need the assistance of professionals, of medical staff,

:12:37.:12:48.

The courts have shown leniency with relatives involved

:12:49.:12:59.

in assisting a suicide, but campaigners, most

:13:00.:13:01.

recently Tony Nicklinson, have never been able to persuade

:13:02.:13:03.

judges that doctors should be allowed to end a life.

:13:04.:13:10.

This issue stirs huge passions, and when MPs last voted,

:13:11.:13:12.

So does that mean this latest High Court challenge is doomed to fail?

:13:13.:13:23.

While it is Parliament that makes the law,

:13:24.:13:27.

So when the case comes here, Noel Conway's legal team will seek

:13:28.:13:32.

a declaration that the current law is not compatible with his basic

:13:33.:13:37.

human rights, to live and die with dignity.

:13:38.:13:42.

Under the 1961 Suicide Act, any doctor who helped end his life

:13:43.:13:46.

Baroness Jane Campbell has spinal muscular atrophy and has been close

:13:47.:13:57.

A disability rights campaigner, she says altering the law

:13:58.:14:04.

If the law were changed, it would feed into society's fear

:14:05.:14:12.

that to be severely disabled, to be trapped within your body,

:14:13.:14:16.

which I already practically am, is a state worse than death.

:14:17.:14:23.

We already have to fight for the right to live.

:14:24.:14:29.

Please don't help us with the right to die.

:14:30.:14:35.

But that is exactly what Noel Conway wants.

:14:36.:14:39.

Canada and California have introduced assisted

:14:40.:14:41.

Noel is determined it should happen here.

:14:42.:14:50.

But he knows he may run out of time before his case is settled.

:14:51.:14:56.

Hundreds of people have attended the funeral

:14:57.:15:01.

in Huddersfield of Yassar Yaqub, who was shot dead by police

:15:02.:15:04.

The inquest into his death was opened and adjourned today.

:15:05.:15:12.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is continuing

:15:13.:15:14.

Hundreds of people came to the funeral of Yassar Yaqub

:15:15.:15:21.

Many didn't know him personally, but were here to support his family.

:15:22.:15:26.

His father, mother and sisters were deeply distressed.

:15:27.:15:29.

One family friend said they still need more detail

:15:30.:15:35.

As far as the gun culture is concerned and criminal

:15:36.:15:45.

activity is concerned, we strongly condemn that.

:15:46.:15:46.

But the question arises that the way this was carried out,

:15:47.:15:49.

in my opinion it was totally out of order.

:15:50.:15:53.

Investigators say they are working swiftly and keeping

:15:54.:15:55.

But one key question about the shooting was answered today.

:15:56.:16:02.

The police have already said a gun was found in the white

:16:03.:16:05.

We know he was the front seat passenger in the car.

:16:06.:16:11.

At the inquest into his death this morning, it was revealed the gun

:16:12.:16:14.

was found in the front passenger foot well of the vehicle,

:16:15.:16:18.

Yassar Yaqub was listed in court as being a 28-year-old office clerk.

:16:19.:16:24.

He was once accused and cleared of trying to murder two people

:16:25.:16:27.

His family and friends though stress he was never convicted of anything.

:16:28.:16:34.

Meanwhile a 30-year-old man arrested on Monday as part

:16:35.:16:38.

of the police operation here, has appeared in court today,

:16:39.:16:42.

charged with possession of a gun, bullets and a silencer.

:16:43.:16:47.

Moshin Amin from Dewsbury was remanded in custody,

:16:48.:16:50.

after his hearing at Leeds Magistrates.

:16:51.:16:53.

Danny Savage, BBC News, West Yorkshire.

:16:54.:16:59.

The First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, has

:17:00.:17:01.

suggested that if the UK were to stay in the European single

:17:02.:17:03.

market after leaving the EU, the question of Scottish

:17:04.:17:06.

independence could be "put aside" in the short term.

:17:07.:17:10.

Ms Sturgeon said she was seeking "consensus and compromise",

:17:11.:17:12.

but that she was still committed to the goal of independence.

:17:13.:17:15.

Our correspondent Glen Campbell is at the Scottish Parliament.

:17:16.:17:25.

Your thoughts on the First Minister's thinking in this far.

:17:26.:17:33.

Nicola Sturgeon still believes in Scottish independence but what she

:17:34.:17:37.

has made clear today is that she would be prepared to park a second

:17:38.:17:42.

referendum for at least the next couple of years while Brexit is

:17:43.:17:46.

negotiated, if Theresa May's government would accept her idea of

:17:47.:17:51.

a compromise deal. As Nicola Sturgeon set out last month, she is

:17:52.:17:54.

prepared to hold her nose and I accept that leave will mean leave,

:17:55.:18:01.

even for Remain voting Scotland, if the Scottish Parliament gets more

:18:02.:18:06.

power, and if the UK Government is prepared to seek to remain in the

:18:07.:18:10.

European single market, or to seek a special deal that would allow

:18:11.:18:15.

Scotland to stay in. The snag with all of this is that even though

:18:16.:18:19.

Theresa May says she will consider these proposals seriously, there is

:18:20.:18:24.

no great expectation that she will actually adopt them. Perhaps that is

:18:25.:18:29.

why Nicola Sturgeon has taken to social media to say that right now

:18:30.:18:33.

she still thinks another vote on independence is more likely than a

:18:34.:18:41.

soft Brexit. Thanks, Glenn Campbell at Holyrood.

:18:42.:18:45.

Concerns about air pollution are acute in China, where more

:18:46.:18:47.

than half of all cities are badly affected, with some experiencing

:18:48.:18:50.

the worst winter smog clouds of recent years.

:18:51.:18:52.

Visibility in Beijing was reduced to less than 200 metres.

:18:53.:18:54.

The effects of increased use of coal, and current weather

:18:55.:18:57.

conditions, have left a smog cloud 2000 miles long across

:18:58.:18:59.

The city with the worst air pollution is Shiijazhuang,

:19:00.:19:02.

from where John Sudworth sent this report.

:19:03.:19:08.

Somewhere, underneath this murky gloom, is a city

:19:09.:19:12.

And for the unfortunate residents of Shiijazhuang, this is normal.

:19:13.:19:22.

For the past 30 days, the average air quality in this city

:19:23.:19:26.

has measured as "hazardous" on the official scale.

:19:27.:19:30.

You can smell, even taste the coal dust in the air, the grim,

:19:31.:19:35.

tangible reality of this country's model of economic growth.

:19:36.:19:41.

And people have no choice but to live, eat and sleep in this

:19:42.:19:45.

"It's like living under a cloud", this noodle seller tells me.

:19:46.:19:56.

"The smog is harming my children's health."

:19:57.:20:01.

"Of course I want to leave", this man says, "but I can't

:20:02.:20:04.

"afford to, and anyway, the whole country is polluted".

:20:05.:20:10.

200 miles away, the pollution literally rolled into

:20:11.:20:15.

A toxic mix of coal dust from power stations and car exhaust.

:20:16.:20:26.

The smog now regularly blankets a huge swathe of northern China.

:20:27.:20:32.

And it is believed to cause more than a million

:20:33.:20:35.

TRANSLATION: As a lung cancer doctor, I'm seeing an increase

:20:36.:20:41.

in patients in recent years, especially from heavily

:20:42.:20:44.

And when the smog gets worse, we see more kids with asthma.

:20:45.:20:51.

Public concern has forced the Chinese government

:20:52.:20:53.

to begin investing heavily in renewable energy.

:20:54.:20:59.

Those working in the sector believe China can clean up its air,

:21:00.:21:03.

just as wealthier, more developed countries once had to.

:21:04.:21:08.

I'm pretty positive for China's future.

:21:09.:21:11.

Actually, we don't need that much time for the science research.

:21:12.:21:16.

We don't need that much time to develop relevant technologies.

:21:17.:21:21.

So I think a lot of things are more ripe for us

:21:22.:21:24.

Those solutions can't come fast enough for this city.

:21:25.:21:33.

Fossil fuels may have lifted China's economy to ever greater heights,

:21:34.:21:38.

John Sudworth, BBC News, Shiijazhuang.

:21:39.:21:46.

A cycle courier has won an employment rights case

:21:47.:21:48.

against the logistics firm City Sprint, in a ruling that

:21:49.:21:51.

could have implications for other workers in the so-called "gig

:21:52.:21:54.

economy", where people are employed on a job-by-job basis.

:21:55.:21:56.

Maggie Dewhurst was classed as self-employed but argued

:21:57.:21:58.

she should be treated as a worker and given greater rights,

:21:59.:22:01.

The company has said it is "disappointed",

:22:02.:22:04.

Maggie Dewhurst delivers medical supplies by bike to hospitals and

:22:05.:22:19.

labs, but despite being a City Sprint career for the last two

:22:20.:22:23.

years, she doesn't have basic workers' rights. She's one of

:22:24.:22:28.

thousands in the so-called gig economy, characterised by temporary,

:22:29.:22:33.

insecure jobs. City Sprint say she is an independent contractor. In

:22:34.:22:38.

other words, she is self-employed. But she believes her relationship

:22:39.:22:41.

with the firm is more like that between employer and worker. We

:22:42.:22:46.

spend all day being told what to do, when to do it and how to do it. We

:22:47.:22:51.

are under their control. We are not a mosaic of small businesses. And I

:22:52.:22:57.

think that is why we deserve basic employment rights like the national

:22:58.:23:02.

minimum wage. Today, and employment tribunal agreed and found she is a

:23:03.:23:07.

worker, describing her City Sprint contract as contorted,

:23:08.:23:11.

indecipherable and windowdressing. Tonight, City Sprint said it was

:23:12.:23:15.

disappointed but that the judgment applies to a single individual and

:23:16.:23:19.

was not a test case. It added that the case demonstrated there is still

:23:20.:23:23.

widespread confusion regarding this area of law. It is calling on the

:23:24.:23:27.

government to provide better support and help for businesses. But there

:23:28.:23:32.

are a number of legal challenges just around the corner which

:23:33.:23:35.

threatened to shake up this part of the gig economy. As well as this

:23:36.:23:40.

case involving City Sprint there are tribunal cases pending involving

:23:41.:23:45.

Addison Lee, and XL. Some say that if the firms lose these challenges,

:23:46.:23:48.

it could fundamentally undermine their business models. Within the

:23:49.:23:54.

industry it is very important, but further afield it is important to

:23:55.:23:58.

any business that uses self-employed people as their main business model.

:23:59.:24:04.

They will have to be looking at, well, can we justify this? Are they

:24:05.:24:08.

genuinely self-employed or is there a risk they will be found to be our

:24:09.:24:13.

workers? This case mirrors a similar judgment against the cab firm Uber

:24:14.:24:17.

last year. An independent review of modern employment purposes

:24:18.:24:21.

commissioned by the government is Jude to report in the spring.

:24:22.:24:25.

The cyclist Chris Froome, three-time winner of the Tour de France,

:24:26.:24:27.

has told the BBC that allegations of doping have been "bad

:24:28.:24:30.

He said he would never take substances that are banned

:24:31.:24:34.

except for medical reasons, unlike his former

:24:35.:24:36.

He's been speaking to Natalie Pirks in Monaco.

:24:37.:24:40.

Olympic bronze and his third Tour de France victory in four years.

:24:41.:24:42.

2016 might have been a year to forget for some

:24:43.:24:45.

But whilst British cycling enjoys a golden age,

:24:46.:24:50.

off the road and track it's mired in controversy with doping's blurred

:24:51.:24:54.

A TUE, or Therapeutic Use Exemption, allows athletes to take

:24:55.:25:00.

a banned substance for genuine medical reasons.

:25:01.:25:04.

The issue is whether some have exploited the system

:25:05.:25:06.

Just the fact that we're having that debate about authenticity of TUEs,

:25:07.:25:11.

I think there's a problem with the system.

:25:12.:25:14.

I think Wada, the anti-doping authorities, need to tighten

:25:15.:25:18.

their regulations around TUEs, so that they're not

:25:19.:25:22.

In those leaks by Russian hackers it was revealed that

:25:23.:25:29.

Froome's former team-mate, Sir Bradley Wiggins,

:25:30.:25:30.

had received three TUE injections before three major races

:25:31.:25:32.

It's perfectly legal, but Froome revealed to me he refused

:25:33.:25:40.

I didn't feel as if having a TUE in the last week of the Tour de

:25:41.:25:47.

France was something I was prepared to...

:25:48.:25:49.

It just didn't sit well morally with me that that was

:25:50.:25:52.

Do you think, therefore, it's right we are asking questions,

:25:53.:25:56.

for example why Bradley Wiggins had three corticosteroids

:25:57.:25:58.

Sure, I mean, I think it's only healthy to ask those questions.

:25:59.:26:05.

Froome's team, Team Sky, is currently the subject of a UK

:26:06.:26:08.

anti-doping investigation over an incident involving

:26:09.:26:10.

a mystery package delivered to Wiggins in 2011.

:26:11.:26:14.

I mean, it's not good for sport in general,

:26:15.:26:18.

the fact that we are discussing the validity of results and...

:26:19.:26:24.

And, as I said, that brings it back to the authorities and something

:26:25.:26:29.

that they hopefully need to tighten up on.

:26:30.:26:33.

As he attempts to win his fourth Tour this summer, the doping

:26:34.:26:36.

questions will again come thick and fast.

:26:37.:26:38.

Froome's biggest desire is to leave a cycling legacy no one

:26:39.:26:40.

Now it's time for the news where you are.
