Sunday's episode of Love Island and its spin-off Aftersun have been postponed to allow fans to watch the Euro 2020 final. 

Love Island typically airs at 9pm at ITV2, but in order to avoid clashing with the football it was pushed back to a 10pm start, with Aftersun, airing from 11pm to 12.05am.    

Love Island lost 1.2 million viewers on Wednesday night when the public switched over to ITV to watch the England match instead.

Jose Mourinho questions why Raheem Sterling and more experienced players did not step up for penalty ahead of Bukayo Saka

Yahoo Eurosport UK 12 July, 2021 - 02:06am

Saka missed the decisive penalty as England suffered a heartbreaking shootout defeat to Italy in the Euro 2020 Final at Wembley.

The 19-year-old Arsenal midfielder was selected by Gareth Southgate to take England’s fifth penalty and had his effort saved by Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

“For Saka to have the destiny of a country on his shoulders, I think it is too much for a kid to have everything on his shoulders in this moment,” Mourinho told TalkSport.

“But I do not know if I have to ask that question to Gareth or not. Because many times what happens is that players who should be there, they are not there. Players who should be there, they run away from responsibility.

“Gareth is such an honest guy and a protective coach that I do not believe he would ever say Player A or Player B ran away or told me they were not ready to [take a penalty].

“I do not know in this case, but I do not think it matters if you are a great penalty taker or not. In this situation, where was Sterling? Where was [John] Stones? Where was Luke Shaw?

“And why did [Jordan] Henderson or [Kyle] Walker not stay on the pitch? In reality it is very hard for [Marcus] Rashford and [Jadon] Sancho to come and take a penalty after one touch of the ball.”

Djokovic defeated Italy's Matteo Berrettini 6-7(4) 6-4 6-4 6-3 in the final to seal a sixth Wimbledon title and qualify for the Nov. 14-21 ATP Finals in Turin. "I am happy to have qualified for Turin so early," Djokovic, who will play in his 14th ATP Finals, said in a statement.

The Arsenal forward’s penalty was saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma to hand Italy victory at Wembley.

The Three Lions lost a penalty shoot-out to Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday night.

‘We conquered Wembley’: Italian press reacts to Euro 2020 victory

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday condemned the racist abuse on social media aimed at England soccer players after their narrow defeat in the final of Euro 2020, drawing accusations of hypocrisy from political opponents. Black players Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka were subjected to "disgusting" online abuse after they missed spot-kicks in a penalty shootout with Italy which settled Sunday's final which had finished as a 1-1 draw. It prompted a police investigation and wide condemnation including from ministers and royalty, with Queen Elizabeth's grandson Prince William, who is president of the Football Association, saying he was "sickened".

Arsenal said they would offer their support to Saka, and told him to hold his head high.

Pablo Lopez set an MLB record by striking out the first nine batters of the game, leading the host Miami Marlins to a 7-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday. Lopez (5-5), who did not record another strikeout after the third inning, lasted six innings and allowed five hits, with two walks and three runs. The previous record of eight straight strikeouts to start a game was shared by German Marquez of the Colorado Rockies in 2018, Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets in 2014 and Jim Deshaies of the Houston Astros in 1986.

Barty, 25, heads into the July 23-Aug. 8 Tokyo Games aiming to join Steffi Graf (1988) and Venus (2000) and Serena (2012) Williams as the only women in the Open era to win Wimbledon and Olympic singles gold in the same year.

The talk pre-game was that Giorgio Chiellini could be targeted. A brilliant defender, but past his best. Potentially vulnerable to England's pace. Arguably showing signs of cracking up with his pre-penalty routine in the semi-final against Spain. He may have been underestimated. Chiellini had a masterful game alongside Leonardo Bonucci, limiting England to a total of two shots on target in 120 minutes. From the outset he seemed more focused than in the semi-final, assuming his usual chirpy aspec

A glut of 16 new caps over a curious summer schedule has taken Eddie Jones to a total of 64 Test debutants in the five and a half years since he succeeded Stuart Lancaster as England head coach. Even when you consider that the Australian is effectively in the midst of a second squad rebuild, that seems like a hefty number. Then again, as he explained after a 70-14 thrashing of Canada, depth of talent is not a problem in England. It is the job of Jones to sift through a vast pool and, to use his
