Boris Johnson lifted the vast majority of the remaining Covid-19 restrictions in England on July 19, as the country moved to step four of its coronavirus lockdown roadmap.

As far back as 2014, Sydney McLaughlin was announcing herself as a freakish talent with the potential to become the best on the planet, making her mark in athletics-mad Eugene as she claimed the first of many world-age-bests at the US Junior Championships. At 14, McLaughlin was already faster than any 15 or 16-year-old girl had ever been and by the time she hit 16 herself, she was breaking the world junior record to book her place on the US team headed for Rio, where she became America’s youngest track and field Olympian in 44 years.
