But don’t worry lets discuss Team GB’s medal haul as the BBC News is full of Tokyo Olympics while other news takes a back burner again with wildfires not really as important ….

The Guardian focuses on Boris Johnson, who will not self-isolate despite a member of his staff testing positive for Covid during a visit to Scotland. It says the PM is facing “mounting anger” over the decision, with a senior government source telling the paper that Mr Johnson and the aide in question were “side by side” on several occasions. The government said Mr Johnson has not been in close contact with a positive case.
BBC News: Staff:
The Daily Mail takes aim at government minister Alok Sharma on its front page for a second day, as it says angry travellers and MPs are calling on him to self-isolate in a hotel “like everyone else”. Mr Sharma – who is leading the UK’s upcoming climate change conference – returned to the UK after visiting several places on the red list, but used an exemption for ministers to avoid quarantine. Defending Mr Sharma, the government said he had held many video calls but in-person meetings were also important.
Team GB cyclist Laura Kenny features on most of Saturday’s front pages, including the Mirror, after she became the first British woman to win gold at three Olympics. A photo of Britain’s relay team, which includes sprinter Dina Asher-Smith, also features after they won bronze.
Great Britain’s medal haul has now hit 58 says the Sun, as it also praises two of the Olympians named Laura on its front page – cyclist Kenny and also Laura Muir who won silver in 1500m. It was the most female GB medals in a single day, the paper adds. It quotes presenter Gabby Logan as saying: “It’s ladies’ day!”
The UK’s Olympic spirit is spurring on the economy, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has said, according to the Daily Express. The paper describes Mr Sunak as buoyant and quotes him as saying he is “confident in the strength of our economy”. Households have amassed billions of pounds in savings during lockdown and experts believe it will now be spent, the paper adds.
The Archbishop of York has written an article in the Daily Telegraph in which he criticises the “metropolitan elite” in London and the South East, claiming they misunderstand people who are proud to be English as “backwardly xenophobic”. The Most Rev Stephen Cottrell – who is the Church of England’s most senior cleric as the Archbishop of Canterbury is on sabbatical – also asks why being patriotic has become taboo.
The Daily Star leads with reports the UK could see a shortage of chips because of high demand from the continent for British potatoes. A catering firm tells the paper that floods in Europe have affected growers, and frozen chips are likely to be particularly affected. “We’ll be left with salad,” suggests the Star. “Lettuce pray.”
The latest on the takeover bid for supermarket Morrisons leads the front of the Financial Times. The paper reports that the US private equity group Fortress has increased its offer for Britain’s fourth largest supermarket to nearly £10bn. A rival firm has until Monday to decide whether to outbid Fortress or walk away.
Britain’s Olympic success is celebrated on many front pages, with pictures of the medal winners.
The Daily Mirror dubs it the “haul of fame,” the Sun says “girl power glory” while the Daily Mail asks whether triple Olympic champion Laura Kenny may get a damehood. The Times seems assured the honour will be bestowed in the New Year.
The i newspaper describes yesterday as the “best day ever for Team GB women”.
An opinion piece in the Financial Times suggests the games will have inspired a generation of girls.
Only the Daily Telegraph focuses on the men on its front page. It shows an aerial shot of the tight finish in the men’s 4x100m relay final, with the title “pipped at the post by Italy again” – referring back to the Euros.
The chancellor tells the Daily Express that the Olympians are inspiring businesses to help revive the economy. Rishi Sunak says he is sure the spirit from the games will live on.

Writing in the Daily Telegraph, the Archbishop of York, The Most Reverend Stephen Cottrell, speaks of the loss of identity for people living in England, outside London.
He says they are no longer British, never European, and are denied the opportunities of the capital.
The archbishop highlights that his position is within the Church of England – a nation with centuries of history. He suggests it should have a “strengthened regional government” – without which he warns of the danger of the UK “falling apart”.
The Sun reports that the fall in Covid cases is sharper than anywhere else in the world under the headline: “Twinkle twinkle little R”. Is the UK’s strategy paying off, the paper asks.
According to the Times, scientists believe future lockdowns are unlikely. One scientific government adviser speaks of his confidence that the NHS won’t be overwhelmed.
But the i newspaper says that the government has put contingency plans for so-called “firebreak” lockdowns over winter in case the health service does suffer.
Many of the papers pick up on a report by the Guardian in which it says the prime minister has refused to self-isolate after a member of his team tested positive for Covid.
The Guardian says this decision is causing “mounting anger”.
The Telegraph indicates that he could yet be told to stay at home by Scottish contact tracers.
ReutersNo 10 said the visit to Scotland was carried out in line with Covid protocols
Meanwhile the Guardian points out that the government has spent £163,000 on union flags in the past two years.
The paper suggests ministers have been using the flags to signal what it calls their “patriotic credentials”.
Expenditure on union flags has apparently gone up in nearly every department since Boris Johnson became prime minister. But it’s not just the Conservatives who’ve embraced flags; the Guardian recalls that Gordon Brown ordered that they be flown from all government buildings.
And the Mail tells the tale of a bat that has broken British records by flying more than 1,200 miles from London to Russia. It’s thought the journey by the Nathusius pipistrelle – which weighed just 8g – may be longest bat migration ever undertaken globally. Sadly its epic flight ended in the jaws of cat and the poor bat died from its injuries.
