Good morning, Jenny here with all the news you need

:00:10.:00:11.

First, it was a bit of a bumpy weekend at the Tour de France.

:00:12.:00:16.

Britain's Chris Froome still leads the pack,

:00:17.:00:19.

cycling but will have to race the rest of the tour

:00:20.:00:21.

without team-mate Geraint Thomas, who broke his collarbone,

:00:22.:00:24.

after a collision with another rider, on stage 9 yesterday.

:00:25.:00:29.

And it's a big day for the Brits at Wimbledon -

:00:30.:00:32.

with Andy Murray and Johanna Konta both in action to try and win

:00:33.:00:35.

If they win it will be the first time a British man and woman have

:00:36.:00:40.

Konta plays France's Caroline Garcia at one this afternoon.

:00:41.:00:45.

Andy Murray is up against Frenchman Benoit Paire

:00:46.:00:48.

Record goalscorer, Wayne Rooney is leaving Manchester United,

:00:49.:00:54.

after 13 years to return to Everton where he played as a teenager.

:00:55.:00:58.

And he's just admitted that even though he's been wearing

:00:59.:01:00.

the United's red shirt in the day, he's been wearing Everton

:01:01.:01:03.

Six time Paralympic gold medallist, David Weir, has ended his career

:01:04.:01:13.

on the athletics track with victory, at the London Anniversary Games

:01:14.:01:16.

David says he's going to concentrate on road racing,

:01:17.:01:20.

and his next challenge - finding the athletic

:01:21.:01:22.

Small asteroids hit Earth almost every day,

:01:23.:01:29.

and are completely harmless, breaking up in the atmosphere,

:01:30.:01:33.

but US space agency, NASA have been thinking

:01:34.:01:34.

about what they'd do if a bigger one came along.

:01:35.:01:37.

, and asteroid hurtling towards Earth and you have to come up with a

:01:38.:01:52.

plan to stop it. How about crashing a spacecraft into the asteroid to

:01:53.:01:56.

not get out of the way? It might sound a bit crazy but that's

:01:57.:02:01.

actually the plan from NASA. The asteroid NASA want to hit will be

:02:02.:02:06.

approaching Earth in October 2022. And then again in 20 24th. It's made

:02:07.:02:16.

up of two different parts, ... But they only need to target the small

:02:17.:02:23.

asteroid to stop is being hit. It's the first ever mission to change the

:02:24.:02:29.

direction of an asteroid called the double asteroid redirection test or

:02:30.:02:32.

if you want to be quicker... Bart. Plans for the spacecraft got the

:02:33.:02:36.

thumbs up and they are about to start designing it. So how would

:02:37.:02:41.

this all work? It's expected to be about the size of a fridge. The

:02:42.:02:45.

spacecraft will shoot itself at the asteroid literally crashing into it

:02:46.:02:50.

at 50 times the speed of a racing car. The force of the crash would

:02:51.:02:56.

physically knock the asteroid off in a different direction. It could be a

:02:57.:03:01.

space tackier moment in history! Thank you.

:03:02.:03:03.

Next, It's times tables, but not as you might know it.

:03:04.:03:05.

Students from more than 50 schools across the North East of England

:03:06.:03:08.

have been battling it out to be crowned regional champion.

:03:09.:03:11.

I've been practising for seven months, waiting for this

:03:12.:03:21.

competition. I've been practising the table is the same time as having

:03:22.:03:26.

fun. It pushes me to get quicker and quicker. Error guitar, rock star

:03:27.:03:31.

photo shoots and times tables? Something you don't usually put

:03:32.:03:34.

together but at this event in Leeds, it seems to be a winning formula.

:03:35.:03:39.

They are fighting it out in a series of head-to-head rounds to become

:03:40.:03:42.

crowned the supreme ultimate rock hero. Meet Baz winter otherwise

:03:43.:03:51.

known as maths teacher Mr Reddy who created times table Rock stars used

:03:52.:03:58.

in 5000 schools across the UK. I was bad at maths in year five but now

:03:59.:04:04.

I've really improved. The rock thing, that helps as well? Yes. Why

:04:05.:04:10.

is that? It creates inspiration. Then it was time for the grand

:04:11.:04:17.

final. Gave it up for Nadal! How do you feel? Excellent. My family is

:04:18.:04:25.

going to be proud. His prize? A helicopter ride above Leeds. How do

:04:26.:04:30.

they have to inspire you guys? I hope his amazing performance today

:04:31.:04:33.

inspires children in his school and this region to be incredible

:04:34.:04:37.

mathematicians. More rock and roll for you now.

:04:38.:04:42.

Coldplay fan who went to the band's concert in Dublin got a little more

:04:43.:04:48.

than he had been expecting. Rob had been crowd-surfing in his

:04:49.:04:52.

wheelchair, when he was spotted by Coldplay's Chris Martin,

:04:53.:04:54.

and invited on stage. The crowd seemed pretty happy too,

:04:55.:04:56.

and gave him huge cheers

:04:57.:05:00.
