Manchester United confident of second dealManchester United are optimistic about their chances of securing a deal for Newcastle ace Sean Longstaff to follow up the purchase of Daniel James. The midfielder has caught Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s eye as the Norwegian looks to rebuild United from the ground up. And the Mirror reckon Ed Woodward and the United board are ready to make their interest in Longstaff concrete. Longstaff is expected to cost around £25m if a deal goes through, substantially less than other midfield targets United have eyed.

MondayOn an appropriately dismal wet morning, the Tory leadership race proper got under way with five of the candidates launching their campaigns. The ongoing spat between McVey and her former GMTV colleagues has been one of the highlights of the week. With intelligence like that, we will soon find out that the reason fish chose to stay in the water was to avoid having to listen to any of the Tory leadership speeches. This is my gaff” Photograph: James Veysey/Rex/ShutterstockThursdayOne of the more fascinating aspects of the Tory leadership contest has been the behaviour of those members of the government who will be out of a job whoever becomes the next prime minister. Grayling was one of those hovering anxiously at Johnson’s launch, desperate to get himself noticed.

In the UK, Jeremy Corbyn revealed in a 2016 Mumsnet Q&A that it has long been his favourite novel too. “A very great Irish friend of mine told me 15 years or so before the journey that I had to read Ulysses. Ulysses is set at a time when political tension was rising in Dublin. “Ireland has had a huge impact on British political life for a very long time,” Corbyn reflects. Politicians should never forget that people have lives to lead and they often have dreams they don’t talk about.”

There are, of course, dozens of countries where these civilised rules do not apply, so it was heartening to note a small flurry of cases this week in which individual freedom defeated social oppression. First, Russia, a country where it is easy to find justice spiralling away from you if you fall foul of the wrong people. Botswana has little in common with Russia, apart from a lot of diamonds and a lingering prejudice against homosexuality. But this week, as Jason Burke reported, judges ruled that laws criminalising same-sex relations should be struck down.

As it came down, it suddenly veered to the right, straight towards SammyIt was a bright, sunny day at my girls’ grammar school in 1983. I was 13 and proud to have been chosen to throw the javelin for my house team. Ahead and to the right, I could see my classmates Sammy and Sarah, who had volunteered to mark the distances. When my mum came back, I begged her to take me to see Sammy in hospital. I was left in the waiting room while my mum went to talk to a doctor for about half an hour.

That’s according to the Daily Mail, who claim the Emirates is one of only two Premier League grounds to have not received a five-star hygiene rating. In 2016, it was revealed the Gunners’ home was dealing with ‘extensive evidence of mouse activity.’And it seems that problem hasn’t dissipated, with mouse faeces recently being found in a number of areas. According to the latest hygiene report conducted at the stadium, ‘a failure’ to properly close doors in a central processing area has led to increases in rodents.

Good morning: Oil prices have continued to rise in overnight trading in Asia, extending yesterday’s sharp gains after the second attack in a month on tankers at the entrance to the Strait of Hormuz, one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes. Brent crude, the global benchmark, rose more than 4 per cent at one point yesterday before settling up 2.2 per cent. The attack stoked concerns of reduced crude flows through one of the world’s key shipping routes. Higher crude prices feed through swiftly to those for petrol and diesel, as well as consumer goods that are affected by transport costs. The International Monetary Fund calculates that every 10 per cent increase in oil prices translates to a 0.4 percentage point increase in inflation in…

Rose was wayward off the tee but deadly accurate on the greens Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesNot only did Justin Rose surpass the new Tiger Woods on a day of intrigue, missteps and periodic brilliance by the California seaside but he also matched the old one. The Englishman’s round of 65 equalled the American idol’s record round at a Pebble Beach US Open dating back to his fabled demolition job of 2000. It also gave Rose the early lead by a stroke from a gaggle of players. Rose, whose 2013 US Open remains his solitary major, did it in unconventional fashion, hitting only half of the fairways but taking only 22 putts to polish off an unusually benign USGA set-up. You could almost hear the ticking of Machiavellian minds in the USGA war bunker after 39 players managed to get under…
