Netherlands v Austria: Euro 2020 – live!
Group C updates from the 8pm BST kick-off in AmsterdamEuro 2020 overview: group tables, results, fixturesGet in touch! Email Rob with your thoughts on the game 3.17pm BST After 21 years of hurt and hubris – acquired on a blood-splattered balcony in Memphis – the tall showboating preacher in the handsomely cut double-breasted suit received his heart’s desire: anointment. And the television arc lights never went out. If you were paying attention to your super soaraway Guardian in 1989, you’ll recall this quote from Alex Brummer’s feature on the Reverend Jesse Jackson. It is also, according to a search of our digital archive, the only time the phrase “years of hurt” was used in this beloved rag before 1996. Then Ian Broudie wrote the lyrics to Three Lions, and the phrase became part of the lexicon of sport. It’s used most often during international tournaments - not only in football, and not only when England are getting giddy again. Continue reading...

Hot water helped me heal. A decade on, a bath is still the best part of my day | Brittney Rigby
There’s something special about a wintertime bath, and for those who deal with pain it can be more necessity than luxuryThis month marks 10 years since my right knee was reconstructed. Years of basketball accelerated the destruction of my genetically floating kneecaps, which took turns to dislocate, competing until my right knee shot ahead in the tally.With each click out (and the resulting click back in), my cartilage tore further, and the damage worsened. My orthopaedic surgeon said my joint was one of the worst he’d seen – and I was a teenager at the time. Continue reading...

Martha Argerich review | Andrew Clements's classical album of the week
(EuroArts, six DVDs)A collection of dazzling performances spanning 50 years – including her acclaimed interpretations of Chopin, Schumann and others – marks the virtuoso’s 80th birthdayHard to believe, but on 5 June Martha Argerich turned 80. Her birthday has been celebrated by several of the labels for which she has recorded over seven decades, with lavish reissues of her classic discs, many of them dazzling performances that rank among the greatest of the piano repertoire ever recorded. Even though it’s well over 30 years since she was lured into a studio to make a solo recording, and almost as long since she gave a solo recital in public, saying that she feels “lonely” on stage without a recital partner or an orchestra, she is still generally regarded as the greatest pianist alive today.

Public inquiries are institutionally corrupt, we should just give the money to victims | Simon Jenkins
Be it the Manchester bombing, children’s homes or Daniel Morgan, millions are squandered on probes that merely enrich lawyersThere should be an inquiry into inquiries. They are institutionally corrupt. The latest, the fifth into the 1987 Daniel Morgan murder, justified itself this week with 1,200 pages and the headline-grabbing epithet “institutional”. We are no nearer the truth of this single unsolved killing, and the home secretary has merely announced another inquiry into police oversight. For this the nation has waited 24 years and spent £30m. It is a scandal. Related: Daniel Morgan murder: inquiry brands Met police ‘institutionally corrupt’ Continue reading...

US Open golf 2021: first round – live!
Live updates from the opening round at Torrey PinesCheck out the official US Open leaderboardDrop Scott an email with your thoughts 6.06pm BST We had to wait a little longer than planned this morning, but the players aren’t hanging about now we’re up and running.
