Moving on to Tuesday and it’s the first Euro 2020 semi-final between Italy and Belgium at Wembley, with the second taking place 24 hours later at the same stadium.

There’s more golf action in the evening with the John Deere Classic from 8pm.
It’s exactly the same menu on Friday with the men’s semi-finals at Wimbledon taking place before the golf action gets underway across both sides of the pond.
On to Saturday and there is the Wimbledon women’s final, the second ODI between England and Pakistan, more golf from Scotland and America as well as the British and Irish Lions encounter with the Bulls.
