I have visited Greece twice, the first time in 1980 I was pregnant with Angus and was uncomfortable in the August heat, the plumbing. But from the hotel window I could see the Acropolis, and I watched Spanish dancing and singing in the ancient stadium. After my travel-mate returned to Philadelphia from Athens, I traveled to Olympia, and was there exactly when the Olympic Games were held in Moscow. Wow. Olive trees. I remember olive trees and shady groves and a small Olympic Stadium that captured the imagination of so many in the world.

The second time was in Oct 2001, I was in Athens for an HIV/AIDS conference because right after 9/11, so many were afraid of flying, and I was very happy to fly anywhere.

Sutton United v Arsenal: FA Cup fifth round – live!

7 mins: Walcott breaks towards the area but is halted, and the ball falls to Reine-Adelaide, but his shot is blocked. It goes out to Downer, but Monreal barges him over and Sutton have a free-kick in their right-back region.

6 mins: Sutton have their first attack...after a fashion. A long throw is directed towards the big man Collins (there are, it must be said, one or two big men in their team), but the flick-on went nowhere.

MPs debate refusing Donald Trump a state visit to Britain - Politics live

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen

A state visit is a uniquely British construct. No other country is able to offer a state visit in quite the same way as we do. It is distinctively British. And over the course of her reign Her Majesty has hosted over 100 of them. All such visits are a rare and prestigious occasion. But they are also our most important diplomatic tool. They enable us to strengthen and influence those international relationships that are of the greatest strategic importance to this country.

Stop Trump has been tweeting and retweeting pictures on its Twitter feed of some of the various anti-Trump protests taking place this afternoon.

Greece stand-off over €86bn bailout eases as inspectors return to Athens

Government agrees on talks on reforms with European creditors against progress on releasing next instalment of funding

Greece’s bailout inspectors are returning to Athens to seek changes to the country’s tax, pensions and labour market laws, in a sign that prime minister Alexis Tsipras will give way to European pressure for deeper reforms.

The Greek government agreed on talks on big economic reforms, in exchange for progress on releasing the next instalment of bailout funds, at a meeting of the single currency’s 19 finance ministers in Brussels on Monday. In return, Europe signalled a winding back of austerity measures for the struggling nation, in a move that could end a dispute between EU creditors and the International Monetary Fund over how to deal with Greece.

Theresa May must take £115bn hint from Kraft Heinz's failed Unilever bid

Warren Buffett and 3G were apparently surprised at hostility from Unilever’s board – but PM must use this bid as cue to form proper policy on takeovers

Warren Buffett and his Brazilian private equity chums at 3G, the main players at Kraft Heinz, must process their cheese and beans on another planet. The US firm abandoned its £115bn bid for Unilever, we’re told, because it wasn’t expecting its proposal to receive such hostility from Unilever’s board and a few British and Dutch politicians. If that explanation is correct, Kraft’s crew of billionaires should get out more. Did they miss the debates that have raged over rootless global companies, asset-stripping deals and the UK’s open-doors policy on takeovers? Hostility was predictable and justified.

Unilever’s board was always likely to reject the chance to be bought by a financier-led firm in search of another target for its job-cutting formula. Unilever’s chief executive, Paul Polman, lectures the world on the importance of looking beyond the next quarter’s earnings and was not about to trade 100 years of corporate history for an uncertain ride on 3G’s debt-propelled takeover machine. A miserly initial offer, comprising a takeover premium of only 18%, will only have strengthened Unilever’s sense of indignation.
