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.

Australia v India: fourth Test, day three – live!

100th over: India 305-6 (Sundar 53, Thakur 64) A regulation over from Lyon save for the fourth delivery which keeps very low, forcing Thakur to get his bat down in a hurry. What now, Australia? What do you have?

99th over: India 304-6 (Sundar 53, Thakur 64) Starc’s sincere but fruitless spell comes to an end. Cummins takes his place and carries on the short-pitched theme. He gets Thakur hooking but luck is on India’s side as the right-hander skies a top edge over the keeper’s head for four more. That’s the 300 up for India, who now trail by just 65 runs.

Sri Lanka v England: first Test, day four – live updates from Galle!

83rd over: Sri Lanka 212-4 (Mathews 18, Chandimal 2) The stand-in captain, Dinesh Chandimal, joins the former captain, Mathews. He gets forward to Curran and opens the face to open his account. They have work to do: Sri Lanka are, in effect, minus 74 for four.

Gone at last! Curran bowls an inswinger to the left-hander and Thirimanne gets an inside edge, well held by Buttler. Curran’s gift for making things happen strikes again, and that’s the end of a very fine innings.

Mahatma Gandhi's killer venerated as Hindu nationalism resurges in India

Nathuram Godse rehabilitated from traitor to patriot for many, as Gandi’s vision of secular India eroded by ruling BJP

Last Sunday, in a nondescript building in the India city of Gwalior, 200 miles south of Delhi, a large crowd of men gathered. Most wore bright saffron hats and scarves, a colour evoking Hindu nationalism, and many held strands of flowers as devotional offerings.

They were there to attend the inauguration of the Godse Gyan Shala, a memorial library and “knowledge centre” dedicated to Nathuram Godse, the man who shot Mahatma Gandhi. The devotional yellow and pink flowers were laid around a black and white photograph of Godse, the centrepiece of the room.

Nasa’s Space Launch System cuts short vital test

Engines of Boeing rocket fired for only a minute, potentially delaying push to return humans to the moon by 2024

Nasa’s Boeing-built deep space exploration rocket has cut short a crucial test, after briefly igniting all four engines of its core stage for the first time.

Mounted in a test facility at Nasa’s Stennis space centre in Mississippi, the Space Launch System’s (SLS) 64-metre core stage roared to life for just over a minute on Saturday, well short of the roughly four minutes engineers needed to stay on track for the rocket’s first launch in November.
