BBC Olympics coverage misses events after selling TV rights



Viewers complain after rights-holder Discovery puts majority of events behind paywallThe BBC has faced a series of complaints about the lack of live Tokyo Olympics coverage on its channels, after viewers failed to realise the International Olympic Committee has sold the majority of UK television rights to pay-TV company Discovery.During the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics the BBC was able to offer dozens of free livestreams of different sports, revolutionising how British viewers watched the games and providing much-needed publicity to niche events that would not normally have enjoyed their moment in the public eye.

Covid live: UK could extend vaccine passports to sports; India reports 39k new cases



Follow all the latest news on the coronavirus pandemic from around the worldSee all our coronavirus coverage 9.42am BST Indonesia is preparing more intensive care units after logging several days of record-high Covid-19 deaths last week, while the country waits to see whether the government will extend or loosen tough restrictions due to expire on Sunday.
“Deaths have risen due to a number of factors: full hospitals, patients admitted with low saturation, or dying unmonitored in self-isolation,” Senior Minister Luhut Pandjaitan said in a statement late on Saturday, Reuters reports.
Luhut, who oversees the Covid response on the islands of Java and Bali, said ICU capacities would be added in areas that have reported the highest fatalities.
Bali, famous for its tourist beaches and temples, has been grappling with oxygen shortages.
Indonesia last week reported record-high deaths on four separate days, the last of which was Friday’s 1,566 fatalities, bringing cumulative deaths to more than 82,000. Total case infections have climbed to over 3.1 million, though health experts say both deaths and case numbers have been undercounted.
Just under 7% of its population of 270 million has been fully vaccinated, with Southeast Asia’s largest country primarily reliant on shots produced by China’s Sinovac Biotech .

9.25am BST China reported 32 new Covid-19 cases in the mainland on July 24, down from 35 cases a day earlier, the National Health Commission said in a statement. Five of the new cases were local infections, down from 13 the day before. Two were in the eastern province of Jiangsu, and there was one each in Liaoning, Yunnan and Guangdong provinces, Reuters reports.
The number of new asymptomatic cases, which China does not classify as confirmed cases, fell to 17 from 20 the day before.
The total number of confirmed Covid -19 cases in mainland China stands at 92,529, while the death toll unchanged at 4,636. Continue reading…
