Tonight at 10, in a shock result, Usain Bolt fails to win the 100m

:00:00.:00:09.

at the World Athletics Championships in London.

:00:10.:00:14.

He finished third, behind the American Justin Gatlin.

:00:15.:00:18.

It's Bolt's last individual 100m race before retirement.

:00:19.:00:23.

The UN Security Council imposes its toughest

:00:24.:00:28.

sanctions yet on North Korea over its nuclear and

:00:29.:00:30.

At least five people have died in Italy and Romania,

:00:31.:00:35.

as large parts of southern Europe and the Balkans endure record

:00:36.:00:38.

And the Irish Prime Minister says it's only a matter of time before

:00:39.:00:44.

Northern Ireland legalises same sex marriage.

:00:45.:01:07.

In the last few minutes the man believed to be the world's

:01:08.:01:12.

greatest ever sprinter, Usain Bolt, in a shock result,

:01:13.:01:17.

failed to win his final individual 100m metre race

:01:18.:01:19.

at the World Athletics Championships in London.

:01:20.:01:23.

The 30-year-old Jamaican, and eight-time Olympic champion,

:01:24.:01:26.

was beaten by the American Justin Gatlin.

:01:27.:01:28.

Our sports correspondent Natalie Pirks watched the action.

:01:29.:01:36.

The day began with a thunderstorm, which gave way to blue skies.

:01:37.:01:43.

Jamaica's fans being made to feel at home in London as they geared up for

:01:44.:01:46.

what they believed would be their hero's fairy tale ending.

:01:47.:01:48.

Last run, last time, it will be a great loss to the sport.

:01:49.:01:51.

But we're going to be here with him on the last lap.

:01:52.:01:54.

When he finishes, it's the best celebration.

:01:55.:01:59.

It's going to go on all night, and all night long.

:02:00.:02:06.

By the evening, the night sky was crackling with expectation. Reece

:02:07.:02:14.

Prescod, Britain's only finalist, was first out, to a wall of noise.

:02:15.:02:20.

They saved the Bolt until last. But the warning signs had been there.

:02:21.:02:24.

Beaten for the first time in four years in the semifinal, by young

:02:25.:02:29.

American Christian Coleman, Bolt's starts had been shaky. As he took to

:02:30.:02:33.

the blog scum he looked to the heavens for divine intervention one

:02:34.:02:38.

last time. -- as he took to the blocks, he looks to the heavens.

:02:39.:02:40.

Bolt gets a pretty good start, so does Chris Coleman.

:02:41.:02:42.

He's not going to catch him at the moment.

:02:43.:02:47.

Disbelief swept around the stadium. This wasn't in the script. There

:02:48.:02:59.

would be no 12th title, no dream goodbye. The crowd made it more than

:03:00.:03:04.

care what they thought of the darling, Gatlin, the pantomime

:03:05.:03:09.

villain. A two times drug cheat, now a three times world champion. Bolt

:03:10.:03:14.

has rarely had to settle for second best, let alone third. But he bowed

:03:15.:03:17.

out having transcended his sport. His legacy is secure.

:03:18.:03:25.

Dan Roan is at the stadium. Nobody predicted this. But Usain Bolt will

:03:26.:03:32.

go down in history as possibly the best sprinter who ever lived?

:03:33.:03:37.

Absolutely. You are right, it wasn't meant to be like this. Usain Bolt

:03:38.:03:44.

was meant to win his final race, not come third, and certainly not get

:03:45.:03:51.

beaten by a two-time drugs cheat in Justin Gatlin. It's the last thing

:03:52.:03:54.

the sport would have wanted as it looks towards a New Year. They would

:03:55.:04:03.

have preferred a young athlete to take the title away from him, but

:04:04.:04:07.

not Justin Gatlin. Bolt struggled in the build-up to the Championship.

:04:08.:04:09.

Many will speculate he should have quit while he was ahead, after the

:04:10.:04:15.

Rio Olympics. He had injury problems and looked vulnerable in the early

:04:16.:04:17.

rounds. He said he was desperate to go out on a high. It didn't work out

:04:18.:04:22.

that way. Having said that, you can't take away the three world

:04:23.:04:26.

records, the eight Olympic gold medals, the 11 world titles. He has

:04:27.:04:31.

simply been a sporting giant for almost a decade. It wasn't just the

:04:32.:04:36.

amount he won, it was the way he did it, the charisma, showmanship, in an

:04:37.:04:40.

era were doping cast a long shadow over athletics, he was a potent

:04:41.:04:44.

symbol that it is possible to win clean. He sells tickets, filled

:04:45.:04:49.

stadiums, he made sure broadcasting and sponsorship deals were signed.

:04:50.:04:52.

He was athletics. Track and field must now work out what it is without

:04:53.:04:59.

him. He leaves an almost impossible void to fill. People talk about

:05:00.:05:03.

Federer, Serena Williams, Michael Phelps, all great, but nobody

:05:04.:05:05.

propped up his sport like Usain Bolt.

:05:06.:05:08.

The UN has voted unanimously for tough new sanctions

:05:09.:05:10.

on North Korea after Pyongyang's recent intercontinental

:05:11.:05:13.

It means there's now a ban on certain North Korean exports,

:05:14.:05:19.

including coal, iron, and lead - depriving the regime

:05:20.:05:22.

of Kim Jong-Un of more than ?1 billion a year.

:05:23.:05:25.

Pyongyang has been under UN sanctions for almost a decade,

:05:26.:05:27.

but has refused to end its missile and nuclear programmes.

:05:28.:05:31.

From the UN, in New York, Nick Bryant reports.

:05:32.:05:36.

This was a show of ambition and menace.

:05:37.:05:40.

North Korea, last month, testing an intercontinental

:05:41.:05:43.

ballistic missile that appeared capable of reaching the American

:05:44.:05:46.

mainland - West Coast cities such as Los Angeles and even beyond.

:05:47.:05:52.

It's this kind of brinksmanship that has intensified diplomacy at

:05:53.:05:56.

the United Nations Security Council and lead to a deal between

:05:57.:05:59.

the United States and China, North Korea's ally, to impose

:06:00.:06:01.

The sanctions will cut deep and give the North Korean leadership a taste

:06:02.:06:20.

of the deprivation they have chosen to inflict on the North Korean

:06:21.:06:25.

people. Every country must ensure that these measures are adhered to.

:06:26.:06:31.

Every country must live up to our word. This time, there is too much

:06:32.:06:34.

at stake. We simply cannot afford to fail.

:06:35.:06:40.

Most of North Korea's export trade goes across this border into China

:06:41.:06:43.

and Pyongyang could be deprived of roughly a third of its export

:06:44.:06:46.

income, the sanctions hitting its trading coal,

:06:47.:06:48.

But they don't limit oil deliveries, a move that would have a crippling

:06:49.:06:52.

effect on the economy and potentially a collapsing effect

:06:53.:06:54.

on the Pyongyang regime - something that China has always been

:06:55.:06:57.

TRANSLATION: We hope that the parties will create the conditions

:06:58.:07:07.

for the resumption of talks and bring the nuclear situation back on

:07:08.:07:13.

track, seeking a peaceful solution to dialogue and consultation.

:07:14.:07:15.

This week, the Pentagon conducted its own test of an unarmed

:07:16.:07:18.

Proof, it said, that America is ready and able to deter,

:07:19.:07:21.

Last weekend, in another show of force aimed at the leadership

:07:22.:07:28.

in Pyongyang, America flew supersonic bombers over

:07:29.:07:30.

But, as well as displaying its military hardware,

:07:31.:07:34.

the Trump administration has indicated it might be willing

:07:35.:07:36.

These sanctions increase the pressure on Pyongyang

:07:37.:07:41.

So far, sanctions have failed and most intelligence analysts

:07:42.:07:48.

here believe that North Korea won't come to the negotiating table

:07:49.:07:51.

until it has proven beyond any doubt that it not only has a missile that

:07:52.:07:55.

can reach the US mainland, but a missile that could be armed

:07:56.:07:58.

Nick Bryant, BBC News, the United Nations.

:07:59.:08:09.

Police in Italy are investigating the kidnapping of a British model

:08:10.:08:12.

who was held captive for nearly a week.

:08:13.:08:14.

The young woman, who hasn't been named, had been in Milan

:08:15.:08:16.

for what she thought was a photoshoot.

:08:17.:08:19.

Detectives say she was drugged, and attempts were made

:08:20.:08:21.

A Polish man, who lives in Britain, has been arrested.

:08:22.:08:26.

She had travelled to Milan for a photoshoot.

:08:27.:08:33.

But it was bogus and the young woman was abducted and held here,

:08:34.:08:36.

an abandoned shop on the outskirts of the city.

:08:37.:08:39.

Italian police say the 20-year-old British model was attacked

:08:40.:08:41.

TRANSLATION: The victim was doped with ketamine,

:08:42.:08:50.

then she was locked in a bag and carried for hours in a car.

:08:51.:08:53.

Think what could have happened if she suffered from asthma.

:08:54.:08:56.

It's thought that she was bundled into the boot of this vehicle.

:08:57.:08:59.

They believe she was taken to a remote mountain cottage,

:09:00.:09:01.

near Turin, and say she spent much of her week-long ordeal handcuffed

:09:02.:09:04.

Her kidnapper is alleged to have tried to sell her for sex

:09:05.:09:10.

on the internet and demanded a ransom of nearly ?250,000.

:09:11.:09:14.

But after six days she was released and taken

:09:15.:09:16.

This man, Lukasz Herba, a 30-year-old Polish

:09:17.:09:23.

national living in Britain, has been arrested by Italian police.

:09:24.:09:27.

The Foreign Office here say they are providing consular support

:09:28.:09:33.

to a British woman in Italy and are in touch with local authorities.

:09:34.:09:36.

At least five people have died as large parts of southern Europe

:09:37.:09:42.

and the Balkans endure unprecedented hot weather.

:09:43.:09:46.

The severe heatwave has affected a huge area,

:09:47.:09:48.

bringing with it drought and forest fires.

:09:49.:09:51.

With records temperatures, the island's grapes suddenly need

:09:52.:10:03.

But working in the fields in 43 degrees is brutal.

:10:04.:10:16.

TRANSLATION: Today, unfortunately, the temperature was so high,

:10:17.:10:18.

we had to tell the workers to come back later when it's cooler.

:10:19.:10:22.

We all suffer, the machines suffer, the vineyard suffers.

:10:23.:10:27.

The fight here against the sun to save the grape and wine

:10:28.:10:30.

industry is reflected in vineyards across Europe.

:10:31.:10:32.

But the wider impact has led to some governments to warn people to stay

:10:33.:10:38.

indoors in the afternoon because of the threat

:10:39.:10:40.

In the Balkans, authorities have been advising people to stay indoors

:10:41.:10:45.

In Hungary, it's about keeping cool and carrying on,

:10:46.:10:50.

and there's strong advice from Hungarian officials.

:10:51.:10:58.

TRANSLATION: If you know any elderly people, ask them if they need any

:10:59.:11:02.

help and offer to do their shopping instead for them.

:11:03.:11:04.

Don't let them go to the market in this heat.

:11:05.:11:06.

We also draw your attention to adequate fluid replacement

:11:07.:11:08.

He says it's very hot where he is - Marseille, France.

:11:09.:11:13.

Staying hydrated while travelling has been a key message here.

:11:14.:11:24.

This is Galicia in northern Spain - flames turning the sky red

:11:25.:11:26.

Here in Sicily, the usually packed summer streets look

:11:27.:11:33.

For those hoping for a break from Europe's heatwave,

:11:34.:11:39.

temperatures are expected to return to some normality late next week.

:11:40.:11:45.

This is something scientists predict we should get used to, though,

:11:46.:11:48.

suggesting global warming will lead to more of us being exposed

:11:49.:11:51.

to increased extreme weather patterns in the years to come.

:11:52.:11:53.

The Prime Minister of the Irish Republic, Leo Varadkar,

:11:54.:12:01.

says it's only a matter of time before same-sex marriage

:12:02.:12:04.

is introduced in Northern Ireland, the only part of the UK,

:12:05.:12:07.

Mr Varadkar spoke while attending a gay pride event in Belfast,

:12:08.:12:12.

This could be the single biggest parade in Northern

:12:13.:12:19.

Uniformed police officers were taking part for the first time.

:12:20.:12:32.

Today is about inclusion and representation for

:12:33.:12:33.

the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

:12:34.:12:36.

We represent all sections of society.

:12:37.:12:39.

Leo Varadkar shows the change which has happened in

:12:40.:12:42.

He is the country's first openly gay Prime Minister.

:12:43.:12:49.

The state he leads voted to allow same-sex marriage two years ago,

:12:50.:12:55.

but in Northern Ireland it's still outlawed.

:12:56.:12:57.

Mr Varadkar said he had come to this event as a gesture of solidarity

:12:58.:13:06.

and expected the law will change here.

:13:07.:13:09.

It is, of course, a decision for the Northern Ireland Assembly,

:13:10.:13:13.

but I'm confident that, like other Western European

:13:14.:13:15.

countries, they will make that decision in due course.

:13:16.:13:19.

Those comments were welcomed by Pride organisers.

:13:20.:13:22.

Northern Ireland is still lagging behind the rest of the UK in terms

:13:23.:13:25.

of laws that have been enacted there and they are

:13:26.:13:28.

It's time we as a community demand change, we demand the same rights

:13:29.:13:35.

The devolved administration, which will have to make a decision

:13:36.:13:43.

on marriage laws here, is currently suspended,

:13:44.:13:45.

because of a dispute between the DUP and Sinn Fein.

:13:46.:13:48.

But during the last period of Government, the DUP were able

:13:49.:13:51.

to veto a measure which would have led to same-sex marriage.

:13:52.:13:57.

Mr Varadkar's intervention may increase the pressure

:13:58.:14:00.

But this is a society where religious conservatives

:14:01.:14:06.

Back to our top story and Usain Bolt's shock defeat in his last

:14:07.:14:29.

individual 100 metre race at the World Championships in London. Here

:14:30.:14:33.

is what he had to say. My start is killing me. Normally, I would get

:14:34.:14:39.

better through the rounds. But it didn't come together and that is

:14:40.:14:42.

what killed me. It didn't come together. I knew if it didn't come

:14:43.:14:45.

together... But I felt like it was there, you know what I mean? The

:14:46.:14:49.

fact I didn't get it, that is the reason I lost. It's just one of

:14:50.:14:50.

those things. With the rest of the day's sport,

:14:51.:14:53.

here's Katherine Downes England are in a commanding position

:14:54.:14:55.

after Day 2 of the final test They were bowled out for 362

:14:56.:14:59.

and James Anderson took four wickets at his home ground,

:15:00.:15:03.

Old Trafford, to hold the tourists to 220-9

:15:04.:15:05.

at the end of the day's play. You can't visit this

:15:06.:15:09.

Old Trafford without being Sporting seasons, already

:15:10.:15:16.

beginning to change. Come next weekend, the traffic

:15:17.:15:19.

will be heading to the other Back at the cricket, it was being

:15:20.:15:32.

played at Premier League pace. Adrenaline, wickets, runs.

:15:33.:15:36.

Jonny Bairstow held England together, mixing the skilful

:15:37.:15:38.

with the physical - and, at times, the magical.

:15:39.:15:40.

More importantly, he got England to 362.

:15:41.:15:46.

Now James Anderson, bowling from the James Anderson End -

:15:47.:15:49.

named yesterday, christened with his third ball today.

:15:50.:15:55.

A roar to compete with United at home. England had three by tea.

Temba Bavuma rebuilt, until Anderson tore into him once more. The game

South Africa no chance. Such quality is catching. The end bearing his

:16:13.:16:25.

name, what is that like? It is a huge honour for me to have the end

:16:26.:16:30.

named after me. It is just a bit odd, there is a lot of Mickey taking

:16:31.:16:34.

from the lads. But my job is to take wickets. Those three wickets in that

:16:35.:16:38.

spell after tea were key for the team. You can't get away from James

:16:39.:16:42.

Anderson at Old Trafford, his name is on part of the ground, all over

:16:43.:16:45.

the scorecard. Tomorrow it might be on the honours board as well. There

is still one South African wickets to take and he will definitely have

:16:50.:16:50.

his eye on it. The Scottish Premiership season

:16:51.:16:52.

has kicked off today, and Celtic began the defence

:16:53.:16:54.

of their title with a convincing Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths

:18:04.:18:22.

Good evening. It has been quite a turbulent weather day with
