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.

UK coronavirus live: officials tackling more than 100 outbreaks a week, says Hancock

Health secretary says targeted action being taken to control virus after big outbreak at vegetable farm

Should it be mandatory for people to wear face coverings in shops across the UK?

In Scotland, it is the law for shoppers to wear face coverings when the shops reopen today. But the governments in England and Wales have stopped short of making it mandatory and the messaging from Westminster has been unclear at best in recent days.

“I think outside is one thing, with social distancing, but a small shop I think is a very sensible place to wear a covering, and it protects people working in the shop, and also anybody else who you might come into contact with.

“I think a mask is just an additional helpful mitigation that isn’t just an act of courtesy. I think it’s an act of increasing safety and public confidence.”

“I think, carrying one with me and wearing one into a supermarket is a good idea and I think, frankly, the best thing to do is to carry on wearing it. I think if the supermarket is very busy then wearing it is absolutely sensible. I think people can be trusted to have the good sense to make the judgment call.”

The continuing city-wide lockdown of Leicester is “not justified”, its mayor, Sir Peter Soulsby, has said, after he was provided with government data that apparently shows the outbreak is only in a “couple of areas of the city”.

Soulsby told BBC Breakfast that, having “finally” been provided with “useful data”, they know that around 10% of the city has recorded a higher transmission of the virus.

“If we had known that weeks ago we could’ve actually dealt with it at that time and prevented this lockdown.

It’s very clear when you look at the data that it’s a couple of areas of the city that have got a higher than the average transmission of the virus, and certainly the way in which the city has been locked down in its entirety, and indeed beyond our boundary, is not justified.”

“I mean even the data we’re getting now is the best part of two weeks out of date, and we need to be knowing, on a day-by-day basis street-by-street basis, what that data is telling us and then we can tell whether or not, in those particular neighbourhoods, we’re actually combating the virus effectively.

“We need to know the ethnicity of the people who are being tested, we need to know where they are working. There’s been all this talk about perhaps it’s passed on in factories, but we have no way of knowing that.”

Gareth Ainsworth makes Wycombe unlikely Wembley headliners

Wycombe’s manager led the relegation candidates to the League One play-off final while fronting a rock band

Last summer, when nine players pitched up for the first day of pre-season, there was little expectation that Wycombe Wanderers would reach the League One play-off final. Then again, how many other managers have had to cancel band practice because they have a date at Wembley? Gareth Ainsworth, the country’s longest-serving manager and part-time frontman, is the inspirational leader who has taken a team tipped for relegation to the verge of an extraordinary promotion. “When your gaffer drives into training in a Mustang, wearing a leather jacket, and plays rock‘n’roll while working out in the gym, how can that not be contagious?” says the defender Darius Charles.

Wycombe’s rise is nothing short of incredible but Charles’s personal tale takes some beating. Last year, before being released after playing only a handful of games owing to injury, he was told to retire in order to prevent the prospect of a hip replacement before the age of 40. But Charles had other ideas, which is why there were tears when he returned to the starting line-up in August. Without setting foot on Wembley turf, the centre-back believes he has won his biggest battle.
