The message flashed on the Court One scoreboard just before play resumed for five minutes in between the rain showers yesterday read: "In hot weather drink water, wear a hat, apply sunscreen." It must have brought a belly laugh to the small crowd who had gathered at that stage of a day when a flask of hot coffee and a sou'wester were more useful, and the sunglasses worn by Andy Murray's coach Ivan Lendl were as out of place as a tub of £2.80 Wimbledon ice cream.

Ted Sismore: RAF veteran of daring low-level air raids

Ted Sismore planned and navigated Second World War RAF low-level daylight raids which were the most precisely timed, the deepest-penetrating, and the most appreciated by those for whom they were targeted. His skill freed prisoners and destroyed papers held by the Gestapo, preventing many executions and hundreds of arrests, with the minimum of civilian damage. The raids were made in answer to requests by the French and Danish resistance movements. "The difficulty was to achieve this kind of success without killing a lot of people," he wrote. "It was a very difficult decision of what to drop and how much to drop."
