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.

Germany beat England on penalties in Euro U-21 Championship semi – live!

England exit the tournament with a familiar tale of woe. It was a fair result, too, as Germany were the better team throughout the match and would have won in normal time if not for shoddy finishing. That is not to say England were without merit, however, as there were some individual performances from them throughout the tournament and they did cause Germany problems today, especially from setpieces. But Germany earned their right to contest the final against Italy or Spain.

Redmond sends a gentle shot at a comfortable height towards the keeper, who bats the ball away to secure Germany’s passage to the final.

The Guardian view on Scotland’s indyref2: Sturgeon has faced reality | Editorial
The SNP exists to lead Scotland out of the United Kingdom. But the tide is not running the nationalists’ way and may even have turned against them

Nicola Sturgeon has announced a delay in any attempt to hold a second Scottish independence referendum. This is no more than a recognition of new political realities in Scotland and the UK. Although her Scottish National party remained the largest in Scottish votes and seats after the general election, the SNP took two massive hits, seeing its vote lurch from 50% in 2015 to 37% on 8 June and losing 21 of the 56 seats it won only two years ago. This was the SNP’s worst electoral reverse in a generation, and it has inevitably caused the party to rethink its immediate political priorities. At the same time, however, the election of a hung parliament and the weakening of Theresa May’s Brexit position provide the SNP with a changed UK landscape too. This is the background to the first minister’s statement.

Even during the election, the SNP had allowed its original plan for a new, pre-Brexit independence referendum to slip until after the completion of the article 50 process. Now it has become clear that the Brexit process may be longer than originally anticipated. Today’s announcement takes the postponement further: Ms Sturgeon has said she is “likely” to revisit the issue in autumn 2018, setting out her thinking on the case for a referendum then. There was no firmer commitment than that, although she insists she does believe a referendum may well be justified before the next scheduled Holyrood election in 2021. That allows her to keep the threat on the table as the Brexit process, in which the Scottish government and the Holyrood parliament will be significant players, evolves. In reality, it surely means a second referendum is now an open question, and the issue is not the daily priority for her government that it might otherwise have been.

The Guardian view on human rights in China: Liu Xiaobo is dying, free him | Editorial
The country’s Nobel peace prize winner, now facing death, should never have been jailed. Beijing should let Liu Xiaobo and his wife go free – and the rest of the world should say so

China’s Nobel peace laureate is no longer behind bars; but nor is he in any sense free. Liu Xiaobo’s lawyer, who has been unable to speak to him directly, says police are posted inside his room as he lies in hospital, terminally ill with liver cancer. Friends have been unable to visit him there. He is at least allowed to see his wife, Liu Xia. But her contact with friends is extremely limited too. In a brief but devastating recording of a video call, shared by one of their friends, she weeps as she says her husband cannot be given surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy, presumably because the cancer is so advanced. It appears that the couple want to return to their home in Beijing or go abroad. The authorities call this medical parole, but an eminent scholar of Chinese law calls it “non-release ‘release’” – transfer into another form of coercive control.

China, though it does not like discussing Mr Liu, has said he is being looked after by “renowned cancer experts” and has urged other countries not to interfere or “make irresponsible remarks”. To Beijing, he is simply a criminal, sentenced to 11 years for inciting subversion of state power. But his crime was co-authoring and gathering support for a call for peaceful democratic reform. And his wife, who has endured years of strict house arrest, has never been accused – let alone convicted – of any crime.

Senate Republicans forced to delay vote on healthcare bill due to lack of support

Mitch McConnell postpones vote to after Fourth of July recess, as a growing list of defections had imperiled the prospect of a vote on replacement for Obamacare
