Four-time Olympic diving gold medallist Shi Tingmao has revealed her struggles with depression, joining US gymnastics superstar Simone Biles in openly discussing her mental health at the Tokyo Games. China's Shi comfortably won the 3m springboard title on Sunday (Aug 1) for her second gold in Japan but cut a tearful figure in the immediate aftermath at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre. The 29-year-old later said she had considered quitting diving after her form dipped last year.
Heathrow Airport has urged the government to reopen the UK economy to fully vaccinated travellers from the EU and US by the end of the month after revealing coronavirus crisis losses of almost £3bn to date.
The company said expensive COVID testing requirements were hampering an effective reopening of the skies, while it also reported that the UK was falling behind its EU rivals in international trade by being slow to remove restrictions.
