Let's talk sport, and Amelie Mauresmo has become the first French woman in over 80 years to win the Wimbledon singles title. The world No.1 overcame some early nerves to beat Belgium's Justine Henin-Hardenne 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. It was the 27-year-old's second grand slam title. At the beginning of the year I would never have thought I would win two grand slams, so I am just going to enjoy it. In Rugby League, Newcastle skipper Andrew Johns has become the game's all-time greatest point-scorer despite his teams' 46-12 thrashing by the Eels last night. In other games, Penrith beat the Raiders 24-12 and the Roosters continued their losing streak, going down 33-16 to the Sea Eagles. As for Johns, he kicked his way into the record books in the 71st minute of the game at Parramatta Stadium. COMMENTATOR: 75 tries, 893 goals, 22 field goals and 2,108 career points. Meanwhile, doctors say Penrith half-back Craig Gower is unlikely to miss a game despite tearing his hamstring

in last night's victory against Canberra. John Connolly's winning streak since taking over as Wallabies coach is over after Australia was thumped 32-12 by the All Blacks in Christchurch. The Wallabies had a strong start after an early piece of individual brilliance from full-back Chris Latham

paved the way for Loti Tuqiri to cross the line. But the questionable sin-binning of Rocky Elsom gave the All Blacks the room they needed, responding with two quick tries.

From then on, the Wallabies struggled to get back in the game. We definitely gave New Zealand a lot of opportunities.

Four tries, and most of them came directly from our mistakes. New Zealand are a great Rugby side, and they gave us very little. In AFL, the Brisbane Lions have gone down on home turf at the Gabba with an 8-point loss to Melbourne in an exciting game. Richmond thrashed Port Adelaide 92-54 at AAMI Stadium. And West Coast Eagles survived a valiant assault by Hawthorn at the MCG to win by 10 points, despite trailing at every change. And in the round ball game, Germany may have missed out on the World Cup final but their fans had something to cheer about this morning. The tournament hosts beat Portugal 3-1 in the play-off for third place. France, of course, meet Italy in the final tomorrow morning. Now to Sunday's weather. And looking good today in Brisbane with 23 degrees. Sunny, too, in both Sydney and Canberra. Hobart should be mostly fine, while things will clear up in Melbourne. A fine 17 degrees for Adelaide, but Perth may get a few showers.

Looking further ahead now, and staying fine in Brisbane, all clear for Sydney and Canberra, but rain may develop in Hobart by Tuesday. Showers may also hit Melbourne Late rain over the next few days in Adelaide. Things will fine up in Perth by Tuesday and Darwin will remain warm, if not a little cloudy. And we'll have more news at 8.30.

Andrew, it's like, do you love

Sophia Loren or brick its Bardot. I

was always with Sophia Loren, so

I'm going Italy. Are you still with

Sophia Loren now? She was always

the girl It would be good for the

French in Mauresmo won Wimbledon

and their soccer team winning the

World Cup in the same week. Let's take a look at what's making papers around the country. And every city has this splashed across the front page today. The so-called broken leadership pact.

As Simon told us, John Howard is said to have promised 12 years ago that he'd only remain Prime Minister for two terms. We'll ask Mark Riley more about that story just after 8.30.

In the meantime, tell us what you think - should John Howard now step aside, or have things changed since that deal was made?

I think Peter Costello would make a

good leader, but it's like they are

playing their own personal game

with our country. It is a little

bit. Two Trigg things : the fact

that Mr Howard has put a

development application in for the

family home that he lived in before

he became Prime Minister, so a bit

of spruceing up going on back home.

Also, the fact the deal was made in

1994, if we think back, John Howard

was not the confident man that he

is these days. Indeed. Interesting

to know how he looks back on that. I want to see the development

application. The garage is getting

a pitched roof and there is a bay

window change. Big stuff. Not huge,

but it will pretty the place up.

Peter Costello has ordered a big

wrecking ball for the Howard renovation. Fairfax papers have some bad news for airline travellers - Travel agents plan to increase their fees because of falling commissions from airlines like Qantas. That means - if you're heading to Europe, for example, you could be paying an extra $200 a ticket.

Pretty steep. Simon? And the big story of the morning now - The Sun Herald has the inside scoop on why Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer named their new baby Tenyson. Apparently, they're both big fans of English poet, Lord Tenyson. Russell even shared his favourite stanza from the poet - "If I were loved, as I desire to be "what is there in the great sphere of the earth "and range of evil between death and birth that I should fear, "if I were loved by thee?"

That is almost better than some of

the lyrics for 40 odd foot of grunt

- only slightly. I think it's quite

nice. I wonder if Russell will use

that when standing by the cot and

reciting that to get the baby off

to sleep. If I were loved ... that sort of thing?

Maybe if it were a grown woman, it might. Ahead this morning - how the world is reacting to North Korea's rather mad leader. Mark Riley will sum things up in his weekly diary. But next - get excited, soccer fans! We're taking you live to Berlin. Sheffield in Tasmania's remote north. Wouldn't it be good if you could simply capture this moment? Birds Eye do capture it. These peas are picked at their peak and snap-frozen within four hours of harvesting.

Who would've thought that Australians would get so excited about a soccer match? Of course, this is no ordinary game of soccer. We're talking the World Cup final! By this time tomorrow, we'll know whether it's Forza Italia or Vive la France. And if you think the excitement is at fever pitch here, imagine what things are like in Berlin. Seven's Adrian Brown is there for us this morning. Hi, Adrian.

There's a bit of partying going on

in the background. What's

happening? It's party central here

The preparations for the World Cup

final have been final have been overshadowed by

what happened earlier tonight when

Germany Pete Portugal 3-1 if a

play-off for third place. Germans

have going to celebrate, because in

the past they have been reticent

about wrapping themselves in the

flag, now they are not so reticent,

they are proud to show they are

German The party is just beginning

and it will go on for hours. Moving

on to what is about to happen, can

you tell us the history between the

two great soccer nations who are

about to meet? You say great soccer

nations, great soccer rivals. Going

back to when France played in the

World Cup against Italy, in the

runnup to the final, which France

won, they eliminated Italy on

penalties, then speed forward to

euro 2000 and the French did it

again, they beat Italy. So the

Italians have never quite got over

that, so there is enormous rivalry

between the two. Probably the

Italians are the marginal

favourites. The French are fielding

a much older team - in fact, the

oldest team to be fielded in the

World Cup ever. The average able of

the French players is 34. The

Italians, on paper at least, have

the edge But the French have

experience and they also have a

great player in the name of Zidane.

This will be his swan song, his

last game for France, Hayes last

game as captain and I think he will

be the man everyone will be

watching very closely on this

historic day. What about the

controversy surrounding the Italian

players? Will that make much of a

difference? As you say, they are

mired in controversy, mired in

scandal. There are about 13 players

that are playing for four clubs

that are caught up in a match

fixing scandal. On Monday morning,

the day after the World Cup final,

a panel of Junes will decide

whether to relegate those four

clubs to lower divisions. That

could mean that many of these big

names, the big Italian names, will

play in loafer divisions next

season. They have been playing in

this qub with that terrible threat

hanging over their heads, so the

Italians desperately need some good

news. They desperately need to win

the World Cup. There is a

possibility that if they win the

justice ministry has said it may

well pardon those clubs involved. I

guess they have to hope that they

win. They will be playing for their

lives. Do you think the justice

ministry will pardon Silvio

Berlusconi for everything he has

done as well? You would have to

hope so, but he will now stand

trial for corruption. Corruption is

hanging over Italy at the moment.

They have had to push that aside

and concentrate on playing. Ever

since the painful penalty against

Australia, the Italians have got

stronger and stronger in each game.

As I said, if you were a betting

person, you would have to say that

probably on paper the Italians are

the favourites in this match. There

was a feeling that, given we lost

to Italy, we may have gone further

had we not played them. Are there

many Aussies left in Berlin for the

final? We bumped into some today.

Of course, they are divided as to

who to support, given the huge

Italian ethnic base we have in Australia. They are divided between

France and Italy. Who are the

Germans going to support? The

Germans and the French have become

increasingly close over the last decade, with close economic

cooperation, so I think you will

see Germans rallying behind the

French. The other thing to remember

is that if Italy win the World Cup

it will be their fourth World Cup

victory, France have won it only

once before. It will be a great

match, less than 24 hours away from

the the first whistle. Enjoy the

game, Adrian. I will, thank you.

After last week, I was giving a bit

of stick to the ARenas who run the

world's best dell can says ten. Joe

along and barrack for France at 4am

on Sunday morning and see how you

on the table. Where do we start?

I'm going to start with the French

because it's an my side of the

table. The smells are exquisite.

The pate doesn't look like normal pate.

It is shredded duck meat. Very low

fat, I imagine! Yes. You put

gherkins with that? Yes gherkins with that? Yes , it works

well together. What is best to eat

the terrine with? Some baguettes.

This cheese is incredible. It's a

very smelly cheese, brie, from

Paris. Beautiful creamy cheese.

Served at room temperature, of

course?. Yes. What is this? This is

my pizza, to ma toe mozzarella,

proper sue toe Melony, and Canolo.

That looks fantastic. The

prosciutto looks so fresh with the

Melon. Yes, a freshen tray. There

are plenty of rock Melons around at

the moment. You can always find

them in Australia. You will be

running the pizza ovens tonight at

the Marconi club. Very busy. This

all goes beautifully with beer, of

course. A big night for both of you. In a moment on the show - how 'Team America' responded to North Korea's missile madness. Mark Riley will have that in his weekly diary. But first, let's get a quick news check from Simon Reeve in Melbourne. Good morning, again, everyone.

Jo you were born in the wrong country, Anne druefplt It's being reported John Howard made a promise to Peter Costello 12 years ago that he would only serve two terms as Prime Minister to make way for the Treasurer. A former shadow cabinet minister said he was in the room at the time, but said Mr Howard made no guarantees. Nobel Peace Prize winner Jose Ramos Horta has been appointed East Timor's new Prime Minister. President Xanana Gusmao said the leader will help to bring peace and stability to the country. And Lebanon says it will deport an Australian man accused of planning a terrorist attack on Sydney. It's alleged that Saleh Jamal tried to recruit six others

for the attack on New Year's Eve in 2003. Weatherwatch now, and looking good today in Brisbane with 23 degrees. Sunny, too, in both Sydney and Canberra. Hobart should be mostly fine while things will clear up in Melbourne. A fine 17 degrees for Adelaide, but Perth may get a few showers.

Were you more of a Lewis Jordan or

a Marcelo woman? I'm a bit of a

Marcelo woman. Even when you say

the name Marcelo, you are halfway there.

Dannii Minogue's hot pants - never

let it be said weekend sun rise

doesn't set the national agenda. It turns out our man in Canberra has a way of predicting the future. Although in this case, it was more like history repeating. with a bold prediction. This week began

We're a year away from an election

and journalists' minds turn towards thoughts of whether the Prime Minister will be here in a year's time. He certainly has to answer that question at some stage, so my prediction is that he will be asked that question some time this week. The next day, everyone was at it. I think Malcolm Mackerras has said today that you'll resign from the top job before the next election. Oh, yes. Is that news to you?

Yeah, well... Another interview was interrupted by a stray hair on the prime ministerial suit. No, no, a bit higher. Up there.

Haven't you got someone to do that for you? There, that's got it. And the leadership questions kept coming as the polls turned down for the government and the PM. Why are you a little on the nose? Well, I will leave that for other people. I have plenty of people - there are people queuing up to nominate the reason for that,

so I won't deny them the opportunity. Meanwhile, Peter Costello was taking the opportunity to be treated like a leader in the Solomon Islands. But the pesky media spoiled the party, asking if he'd done a deal with Mr Howard These things are worked on a timetable for a handover. These things are worked in the interests of the Australian people and the Liberal Party and the people concerned. There's no point in speculating on that. Funny old answer - the "non-denial" denial. But maybe this sign was a sign? Probably put it there himself. So, is there a deal or not? I'm certainly not going to speculate on these things in the jungles of the Solomon Islands. JOURNALIST: Why not? (laughs) Back home, the PM wanted to put an end to all this beating around the jungle bushes.

Peter has been a great Treasurer, he's a great colleague, he's a great deputy leader. The Prime Ministership is not vacant.

I'm occupying it. That seems clear enough. And, just to make sure... If you're asking me whether there's a deal or an understanding, the answer to that is no. Which pretty much landed us back where we began. And it seems the world is back where it began with North Korea this week after it launched seven missiles that may have been fizzers but had an explosive effect on international affairs. Leading our Foreign Minister, Alexander Downer, to ring the North Korean ambassador here and give him a bit of a rocket. I have made it clear to him that we condemn what has happened and we see this as a real challenge to international security.

But we know Kim Jong Il doesn't listen to the international community.

Sir, Hans Blix is here from the United Nations. Hans Brix? Oh no!! Oh, hurro. Great to see you again, Hans. Despite all the grand displays, masses of military marching through the streets and missiles going off like firecrackers, he's always denied having nukes. Hans! Hans! Hans! We've been through this a dozen times! I don't have any weapons of mass destruction! Okay, Hans? The leader of 'Team America', who's got the odd WMD or two himself, reckons the north will end up with no friends at all. All the firing of the rockets has done is they've isolated themselves further. North Korea's "Dear Leader" is already feeling isolated. # I'm so ronery

# So ronery and sadry arone # There's no one, just me onry # Sitting on my rittle throne # The UN went into emergency session, but couldn't agree on what to do. Not that it would take any serious action. Let me see your whole palace, or else! Or else what? Or else we vill be very, very angry with you. And ve vill write you a letter telling you how angry we are. Letters don't work

and trying to make friends probably won't, either.

Well, I don't think it's a question of cuddling up. I don't think they'd ever cuddle up to anybody. He knows no-one wants to give him a cuddle. # I'm so ronery #

Mark Riley in Canberra, good morning to you.

There was no way you could resist

that. Pour little dictator with

the very big hair. The big news this morning

remains the leadership tension within the government. News Limited papers are reporting a deal was done 12 years ago, so what does all this mean?

It is interesting, Ian McLachlan,

at that time a former environment

spokesman for the opposition, when

Alexander Downer was at the end of

his leadership, Peter Costello was

the deputy and the feeling among

the party was that John Howard had

the better chance of taking them to

an election victory, and certainly

did. Ian McLachlan is saying at

that time John Howard said to Peter

Costello, "I'm planning to serve

two times as Prime Minister and

then happened over to you," but

there was the typical Howardian

rider, I can't goorn tee this, at

the beginning. Ian McLachlan had a

note of the meeting and kept it in

his wallet and 12 years later

opened it - which is typical for a

politician. Why after 12 years

would he remove it now? Perhaps he

was watching weekend sun rise last

week. There is certainly an

interesting tran and renewed

interest in the transition, the

forces supporting Peter Costello

may have reminded a few people and

brought this story back to the

surface. That may be why. It is

just to keep the pressure up. As

you mentioned earlier, there are

renovations going on at the prime

ministerial home, maybe he is

taking advantage of some negative

gearing. He was the treasurer once

and he knows the tax laws. There

are certain signals that indicate

that he is leaving the option open.

One of his closest advicers from

the past, Graham Morris, who is a

nice bloke and a straight shooter,

said late last week he expects the

Prime Minister to make a decision

around November or December on

whether he will stay or go. He will

certainly have to do it before

Christmas, to give peek peerk a

chance to bed down as the Prime Minister That's right. Ahead this morning - Kevin Spacey talks about following in the footsteps of Bobby Darin. Nelson Aspen will have that in this half hour.

Nelson Aspen probably knew backy Daryn. And after 9.00, how East Timor will change with a new PM. But next, does your man understand the needs of a woman? Stand by for the Counselling Corner.

Is your relationship going through a rocky patch? Or do you have a family problem that's causing you pain? This week our resident psychologist Jo Lamble is in the chair.

It is all getting very confusing around here. Perhaps you need advice from our Counselling Corner. This week our resident psychologist Jo Lamble is in the chair. Good morning, Jo. First up, we have Belinda from New South Wales. How can Jo help?

I have a history of depression and

anxiety, which was successfully

treated with medication and

counselling in the past. My husband

doesn't believe in depression and

thinks that taking antidepressants

is a sign of weakness. We have a

demanding 8-month-old daughter at

the moment and I'm receiving counselling for postnatal

depression. How do I get him to

understand my situation and, if I

can't, how do I keep my marital

problems from affecting our

daughter, as he also refuses

marriage counselling. As you

probably heard in counselling, you

were a sitting duck for postnatal

depression, having a history of

depression in the past, and having

a demanding 8-month-old, which

means you're not getting much sleep

and not having the full amount of

your husband. We know there is a

core regulars between the amount of

support a woman gets from her

husband and the chance of getting

postnatal depression. It's

important to get your husband on

board. Obviously it would be good

for him to go to counselling. In

New South Wales there are excellent

courses for both partners. There

are great books, a really good book

called beating the blues which has

a small section for the partners,

for anyone living with someone

suffering from depression, or if

you download a small section from

the net on the'ss and treat of

postnatal depression, that might be

a good idea. In the meantime, I

would encourage you to ask him for

help and be specific. If you just

say you want support or affection

or understanding, he obviously

doesn't know what you mean. Be

specific. Start with practical

things. Ask him to mind the baby

for an hour or two while you have

time for yourself, to get a coffee

or a haircut. When he sees he can

do that and sees the benefit of

that, you might be able to ask more

emotional support. Be specific.

That sounds like a good wake-up

call for men because quite often as

women we don't trust our partners

to be with the child on their own

and once the husband or partner

knows what you are going through ...

It is often the only way to

experience it themselves. It is

also important not to give them too

many instructions, but to let him

do it his way, because mums can

become control freaks, so let him

do it his way and you might get far

more support. It is great to allow

the fathers to engage with the

child in the frackal way, they get

so much out of it. Dads do find it

hard when the baby is small. As the

baby grows, often you get more

support. Hopefully this is just a

phase and you will get through this.

Sky from Victoria is next. What's

your question? After the death of

my father about 12 months ago, my

sisters and myself inherited the

house. All we seem to do is fight

constantly on the phone, and we

have started to fall out. I am

wondering what I can do to help us

bring us back together? It's

amazing how often a death creates

turmoil in a family that has been

close beforehand. That's the nature

of grief unfortunately. Only 12

months, so you are really in your

early days of grief. I would

discourage you or the family from

making any decisions in these early

days. For example, trying to decide

what to do with the house, it is

not a good idea to do that and it

may be why the tension is

heightened at the moment. You might

need to spend some time apart. If

you are together, I would encourage

you to talk about fun things about

your father. A nice idea that might

help to bring the family close is

to make a memorial book or box. It

is good to collect things together,

photos, clippings, letters, nick

knacks, that remind you of your

father and gather what you think

might be nice and share the box,

maybe keep it at your number's

house and share it amongst

yourselves. It is a lovely exercise,

but especially for the family to do

it together might help to bring you

closer. Good advice, as always. We

will see you in a few weeks. As we

mentioned, next week, Michael Carr-Gregg will be in. If you'd like Michael's advice, you can email our soapbox. Coming up - does Sophia Loren still have what it takes to pose nude? Make up your own mind in our next half hour. But next, we're off to the movies. You're about to meet an all-new singing and dancing Kevin Spacey!

Do you remember Bobby Darin?

In the 1960s, he was king of Hollywood. He was everywhere and he could sing, dance and act. A bit like our Nelson Aspen. Nelson, good morning. # Good mornin', good mornin' # Good mornin' to you! # Andrew and Lisa, yeah! Serious, Bobby Darin was big hero of mine.

And I have to say, Hollywood is long overdue in finally making a biopic about his life. Ladies and gentlemen, Bobby Darin! # Oh, the shark, babe # Many of us dream of stardom. But for Bobby Darin, that dream became real. # Splish, splash, I was taking a bath # Long about a Saturday night # 'Beyond the Sea' stars Kevin Spacey. And for some reason, when I was a kid, I just thought he was the coolest cat

that ever walked the face of the earth. Kevin doesn't just act in this. He IS this film. Just ask his cast member Bob Hoskins.

He took me to dinner and said "Right, I've written it, "I'm going to direct it, I'm going to play Bobby Darin, "and I'm going to sing a song, "then I'm going to do the dancing."

"Then I'm, you know... Yeah!" (laughs) He said, "No, hang on - I've got the money." I said, "If you're going to stick you're neck out that far, "I'll go with you."

So Kevin put on his director's hat. Do I look like mini-mouse in these ears? I swear!

How tough is it to take me seriously when I'm like this? "Well, Mickey, I think we should shoot a dance." Not in the school van now, huh, Bobby.

Let me tell you - when you come from nothing like us, like him, then you're destined to make a name for yourself.

And we will, Ritchie. We will. The film follows Darin's rise to stardom. Along the way, he falls in love with screen sweetheart Sandra Dee... Hello. ..played here by Kate Bosworth. # Somewhere beyond the sea # Somewhere waiting for me # I have an interview.

Tell him you met Bobby Darin and he's gonna marry ya! Kevin and Kate are arch enemies in the new 'Superman Returns' movie. Come on, let me hear you say it, just once. You're insane. No! (laughs) But in this film, they're husband and wife.

# And I know beyond a doubt # My heart will lead me there soon beyond the shore # We'll meet, I know we'll meet

# We're gonna kiss just as before # The movie was shot in Berlin in the middle of winter. It was five degrees outside,

and we're faking summer in Italy.

So there I am in like these tiny Sandra Dee summer dresses, supposed to be sort of skipping about, being all Sandra Dee - the youngest days, the most innocent, and my lips are blue. And so I'm trying - so they're like, "Kate's lips are blue, we have to warm her up now." You know, "We gotta take a break!" Ah, but for Spacey, the weather wasn't a challenge, not was the music! Being in a musical environment for me is very comfortable.

I've just never done it professionally. I mean, it's not that I didn't audition for a couple of musicals, but they didn't cast me! Give it a real thing. Now, if you're wondering why Kevin Spacey looks a little different in this, it's because he's actually got on a prosthetic nose

to appear more like Darin. Now, come on, I shaved my head to be more like Kevin as Lex Luther. Do I have to go out and get a fake nose now? Forget about it! Happy Sunday! Thanks, Nelson.

The fake nose might go along with

some of the other cosmetic

procedures he was telling us about when he was here recently. And 'Beyond the Sea' is in cinemas this Thursday.

What happens on tour stays on tour,

remember? But only he was on tour.

Does it bring back JOK memories for

you? Some of the moves were. Still to come - should biscuits be banned from childcare centres? We'll seek some views. And we'll enter that debate on Sophia Loren. But next - Sunday's news and weather.

You're watching a special European Edition of Weekend Sunrise live from Soccer Central.

VOICE-OVER: Now back to Weekend Sunrise with Andrew and Lisa.

We could get used to this! We're celebrating European culture this morning ahead of the World Cup final.

That canoli looks magnificent.

There's no use putting it in your

mouth, you may as well just go like that. We're about to start eating. But plenty more to come on Weekend Sunrise. In a moment, has East Timor finally got it right? Keith Suter will pass judgment on the new PM. Also ahead - should biscuits be banned from preschool? We'll talk more about the latest plan to beat child obesity. And is Sophia Loren still sexy?

I think the answer is yes, but make

up your own mind. I think that's called a no brainer.

She's posed nude for a calendar at the age of 72. Is there anything wrong with that? We'll seek some views.

I would be interested to know who

else people think over the age of

50 are sexy. Is there any reason

why you have to check your sexyness

at the door when you turn 50? Women

tend to fade into the background

once they turn 50, 60 they are no

longer in the limelight as much. If

you have people over 50 you think

should be at the top of the sexyest

list, we would love to hear from you. Good morning, everyone.

Reports this morning suggest that John Howard promised Peter Costello 12 years ago that he'd stand down after two terms as Prime Minister. Former Shadow Environment Minister Ian McLachlan has told News Limited papers that he was in the room when the two men discussed their future in 1994.

But he says Mr Howard made no guarantees. Mr McLachlan has kept notes of the meeting in his wallet ever since. Nobel Peace Prize winner Jose Ramos Horta has been appointed East Timor's new Prime Minister, ending weeks of political uncertainty. The position was left vacant after Mari Alkatiri was forced to stand down last month accused of arming hit-squads to kill his political opponents. President Xanana Gusmao says the appointment will bring peace and stability to the troubled nation.

To respond to the crisis, to

respond to the situation of the

people, to respond to the processes of healing. Months of unrest in Timor has claimed 21 lives

and forced 150,000 people to flee their homes. The Federal Government has welcomed the appointment of Jose Ramos Horta Lebanon says it will deport an Australian man accused of planning a terror attack in Sydney. Australian police say Saleh Jamal recruited six men to launch a strike in Sydney on New Year's Eve in 2003.

He's also wanted over a drive-by shooting on a Sydney police station. Jamal went to Lebanon on a fake passport two and a half years ago. He's just completed a two-year prison sentence for terrorism offences. Private Jake Kovco's family say

they are not satisfied with the official report into the bungled return of his body from Iraq. The family of Private Kovco's widow Shelley told Seven News they were only given a cut-down version of the report that left many questions unanswered. I don't want to see anyone lose their job, but there has to be something done. A Defence Inquiry found that Private Kovco's boss mistook the soldier's body for that of a Bosnian carpenter. But Shelley's family say the sergeant was the wrong man for the job and shouldn't be punished. A 47-year-old will appear in court today charged with the attempted murder of a mother and her seven-year-old son in their Sydney home. The boy is fighting for his life at Westmead Children's Hospital after suffering severe head injuries. Police say his mother was bashed and cut with a knife. The suspect is believed to have been a boarder at the family's home in Strathfield. Two astronauts on board NASA's Space Shuttle Discovery have successfully completed the first of three planned spacewalks outside the International Space Station. The two men spent seven hours among the stars to repair parts of the station's exterior. The American and British astronauts performed the delicate operation as they passed 350 kilometres above Asia. The next space walk is planned for Monday. Let's talk sport, and Amelie Mauresmo has become the first French woman in over 80 years to win the Wimbledon singles title. The world No.1 overcame some early nerves to beat Belgium's Justine Henin-Hardenne 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. It was the 27-year-old's second grand slam title. At the beginning of the year I would never have thought I would win two grand slams, so I am just going to enjoy it. John Connolly's winning streak since taking over as Wallabies coach

came to an abrupt hault last night after Australia was thumped 32-12 by the All Blacks in Christchurch.

The Wallabies had a strong start after an early piece of individual brilliance from full-back Chris Latham paved the way for Loti Tuqiri to cross the line. But the questionable sin-binning of Rocky Elsom gave the All Blacks the room they needed, responding with two quick tries. From then, the Wallabies struggled to get back in the game. We definitely gave New Zealand a lot of opportunities. Four tries, and most of them came directly from our mistakes. New Zealand are a great Rugby side, and they gave us very little. In Rugby League, Newcastle skipper Andrew Johns has become the game's all-time greatest point-scorer despite his teams' 46-12 thrashing by the Eels last night. In other games, Penrith beat the Raiders 24-12 and the Roosters continued their losing streak, going down 33-16 to the Sea Eagles. As for Johns, he kicked his way into the record books in the 71st minute of the game at Parramatta Stadium.

COMMENTATOR: 75 tries, 893 goals, 22 field goals and 2,108 career points. Meanwhile, doctors say Penrith half-back Craig Gower is unlikely to miss a game despite tearing his hamstring in last night's victory against Canberra. In AFL, the Brisbane Lions were valiant in defeat on home turf at the Gabba with an 8-point loss to Melbourne in an exciting game. Richmond thrashed Port Adelaide 92-54 at the AAMI Stadium. And West Coast survived a valiant assault by Hawthorn at the MCG to win by 10 points, despite trailing at every change. Geelong also thumped Carlton. And in the round ball game, Germany may have missed out on the World Cup final but their fans had something to cheer about this morning. The tournament hosts beat Portugal 3-1

in the play-off for third place. France, of course, meet Italy in the final tomorrow morning. Now to Sunday's weather. And looking good today in Brisbane with 23 degrees.

Sunny, too, in both Sydney and Canberra. Hobart should be mostly fine, A fine 17 degrees for Adelaide, while things will clear up in Melbourne. but Perth may get a few showers. Looking further ahead now, and staying fine in Brisbane, all clear for Sydney and Canberra, but rain may develop in Hobart by Tuesday. Showers may also hit Melbourne Late rain over the next few days in Adelaide. Things will fine up in Perth by Tuesday and Darwin will remain warm, if not a little cloudy. And that's the latest. More at 9.30. Thanks, Simon. As we've been reporting, East Timor is waking up this morning with a new Prime Minister. Jose Ramos Horta will take over from Mari Alkatiri,

who resigned last month. But will the new appointment finally bring peace and stability to the troubled nation? Our foreign affairs editor, Dr Keith Suter, is here. Good morning to you, Keith. Good morning. Is Jose Ramos Horta a good choice for East Timor? Yes, I think it's excellent because he's really the international face of the country. Throughout the years of the Indonesian occupation he was the person who travelled around the world galvanising support for East Timor. So he's very well known and will be very helpful when he tries to drum up some foreign aid for the country. I think part of the problem for East Timor is that it just slipped off the international radar. There was a lot of international assistance given at the end of the '90s, the beginning of the new millennium, but then suddenly our attention has gone elsewhere - not so much in Australia but in the rest of the world.

With Jose Ramos Horta again being a figurehead for East Timor it will help revive interest in providing foreign aid to that country which, after all, is the poorest in Asia. It needs every dollar it can get its hands on. Ramos Horta and Xanana Gusmao will work well together, do you think?

Absolutely, they are a good partnership. Xanana Gusmao spent the years of the occupation either fighting the Indonesians or, later on, being captured by them. There is a good bond between the two, so I think they will make a good partnership. What will Ramos Horta have to do to bring peace back to East Timor? I think the major problem he's got is to find ways of dealing with the rebels, which now may be of far less concern because they have got rid of Mari Alkatiri. And then, of course, to reassure people that money will start to flow again into the country, which I think is where Jose Ramos Horta will be good because he will be able to go to the European Union or the United States and elsewhere, saying, "We need foreign aid, we're desperate for it, "Can you help us bring some more money into the country?" The East Timorese are decent, gentle people but they are feeling increasingly impatient. There is 40% unemployment in the country. They really do need some foreign investment, some foreign aid, to come in. I think he'll be good at doing that. It's interesting to note that under the new structure there are two deputy prime ministers, and most of the day-to-day running of the country may well be left to them, which leaves Jose free to take up this role as Prime Minister and travel around the world. Which is what he does best.

Absolutely. He's had 30 years of doing it, he's very good in that role. He's a real friend of Australia as well, Jose? You've known him for over 30 years. I think he's a friend of Australia, but Australia is not necessarily a friend of him. He came out here in 1975 to warn the Whitlam Government about events going on in East Timor and the problems they were having with Indonesia, and the Whitlam Government refused to see him. Instead, he ended up seeing peace activists, like myself, in what was then the Association for International Cooperation on Disarmament because he couldn't get access to the Whitlam Government. As we now know, of course, Whitlam was supporting an Indonesian takeover of East Timor. So he's had close connections with this country. As you know, Jose Ramos Horta is a doctor, and his doctorate is from the University of New South Wales and he has relatives living in the western part of Sydney. So he knows the country well, visits here regularly, and I think is someone who will help build the bridges even more between East Timor and Australia. Let's hope that's good news for East Timor. Moving on to one other big story from overseas, the United Nations is expected to vote tomorrow on whether to impose sanctions on North Korea over the missile tests that have been gone on, seven so far. What options does the UN have? Actually, very few, because we think the resolution may well be vetoed by China and Russia, who want to keep open their links of communications with the north Koreans. If they support the resolution Ask If they support the resolution being put up by the Americans on behalf of Japan, then we will end up with the North Koreans enclosing even more within their own community and not even having contacts with the Russians and the communist Chinese. So I think they may well want to veto it. There are all sorts of negotiations going on. The way the UN Security Council operates is there is a lot of talk in the corridors and the lobbies before a resolution is brought. The Americans know well the dilemma the Russians and the Chinese have if they were to support the resolution but they also know the condemnation they will get

if they veto the resolution because the world has been so hostile towards what the North Koreans are doing. There are all sorts of issues that are arising now in Japan, with the Japanese, some of the conservatives, saying, "We have got to re-arm to take on these threats to our security." Because the Japanese have an election coming up and bashing the North Koreans is always very helpful during an election campaign. The Japanese are pushing up the pressure as well. It's a real flashpoint. The worry a lot of us have is that when you have a lot of tension like this in a flashpoint, you could end up with conflict accidentally breaking out. Mistakes happen, yes. Mistakes happen. Let's hope the Koreans aren't as gun crazy as their rhetoric is suggesting lately. Thanks a lot, Dr Keith. We'll see you next time. Thank you. Have a good day. Ahead this morning - a complete change of pace when we ask - is Sophia Loren still sexy? You can be the judge. You don't have to judge much. The answer is yes. Absolutely. She's 72!

Isn't that extraordinary? Amazing. Sexy at 72! Not even Paul McCartney could pull that off. But next - should kids be banned from having biscuits at day care? It's time for our Weekend All Stars.

I'm I'm sucking gerkin and duck

liver pa tie from between my teeth. We're with you until 9.30,

Good morning, guys. What have you got coming up?

We want to come over there. we have

some newspaper and some water and

you guys have pizzas and gherkins

and all sorts of stuff. We

obviously work for the wrong people.

I wish we had that camera in the

break, because the people at home

needed to see what you were doing.

El gabt, wasn't it? We are going to

cover the World Cup, the betting

for the final, Italy favourites,

France just a little bit outside,

and everyone else is favourites to

get some sleep next week. The

woeful Wallabies. We weren't speck

towed beat them. I think our

confidence was too high. Nick far

Jones made the comment, you smashed

us. I didn't think the All Blacks

were particularly brilliant, we

just gave them too many chances.

Absolutely. The Latham try was a

good start, but it all went

downhill from there. Did you see

the haka? It was the scaryest thing

of all time. They finished it with

that. We will talk to Stu Wilson,

Clinton Schifofske, and how the

Raiders are going. Andrew Johns

broke the point scoring record but

didn't stick around for the presentation. We talk a lot on this show about child obesity. Solutions aren't easy to come by. But now the New South Wales government is having its say. It thinks the trick is to start early,

so is planning to force all preschoolers to do exercise. It also wants childcare centres to ban things like chocolate and biscuits. Our Weekend All Stars are here. Social commentator Rebecca Le Torneau and Radio 2UE's Glenn Wheeler, good morning to you both. Rebecca, we're talking about children under five - will it work?

I'm astounded to think that there

are preschools that are giving

children chips and chocolates and

soft drinks. Honestly, all of us

have certainly seen a room full of

15 under-3-year-olds. You wouldn't

on pain of death give them soft

drinks and lollies, they would be

racing around like complete idiots.

The notion of those banning those

things seems completely ridiculous,

unless it's on a party day. Let's

not take all the fun out of life.

One day a year there's a Christmas

party or an occasional birthday

party. I was under the impression

that children did exercise at

preschools, they run around, they

are not sitting in front of

computers and TVs. I'm questioning

what is changing here. Certainly we

need to address this, we have twice

as many fat kids and fat adults as

we had 10 years ago, dreadful

figures, but this is confusing. The

preschools that I have seen do have

exercise for children. Kids just

run and run all day at preschool.

I'm not sure what they are

proposing. Is it Kallis thenics

classes? I think we have missed the

point. Who is measuring obesity in

kids? We keep reading about the

problem of children being obese. I

should have brought in my baby

photos, because I was fat. Now

you're just ugly. It's gerting

person. But still highly

intelligent. I have that image of

babies like a Michelin man, when

babies are born, saying, isn't he

or she beautiful, nothing wrong

with that. I don't understand why

we have to focus on kids being

skinny, healthy, pumped up little

fellas who run around at the

preschool. When we were young, we

got that exercise because we used

to walk to school and had parks

with swings and slippery dips and

things to keep us going. That's the

difference, that we did run around.

I think it's the parents. We talk

about North Korea a lot lately. We

are starting to get into an

environment where the government is

telling us how to bring up kids. We

didn't have a fridge full of

Coca-Cola and a cupboard full of

chips. May be it is a way of

getting it on the agenda, getting

people talking about it. Maybe it

is a way of governments taking our

attention away from other issues.

What other issues? There is no

issue with child care, schools -

it's all about fat kids. If you're

a single mum trying to study and

raise your children, things are

about to get tougher. Child care

subsidies will only be offered to

single mothers whose study course

lasts less than 12 months. If you

want to go to uni, how do you get a

subsidy? This is tough, because it

ties into the obese children issue,

because if mums want to stay at

home and be mums, why shouldn't

they be able to get a benefit for

being a mother? There is a great

offset to encourage mums to stay

home and say, bring up the kids in

a homely environment, feed them

well, exercise them, instill all

those things that mums are good at

doing, and we will give you a

benefit, rather than saying, we

need you to do 15 hours a week

before you can qualify for that

benefit. I think we are at

cross-purposes. By the time mum

does the 15 hours a week and gets

little Johnny minded, before or

after school or during the day,

there will be a play-off, who is in

front? I don't think anybody will

gain out of it. From a society

point of view, I would like to see

more mums stay at home and focus on

their kids. Than be forced to go

out and do letter box drops. What

other job can you get for 15 hours

a week. What concerned me most

about this is that if you read it,

it says that if you want toe do a

course that is longer than 12

months you will pay basically full

child care, but if your course is

shorter, your child care is $2 a

day. The idea is to get women into

fast quick courses, like a waitress,

that will not take long and get

them into the work force. Women who

want to be a nurse, we need good

nurses - we need more teachers,

those are not 12-month courses, so

these people are being told they

cannot become this. It is a bizarre

plan, it doesn't make sense. It's a

slap in the face, another slap in

the face for single mother. I would

so angry when I read about this

What do you think of Sophia Loren's

calendar shots? What a sensational

woman. The best part, she's 71, she

looks fantastic, and despite the

fact it looks like three cameras

are being used to take the one shot

, that was achieved on a diet of

pizza and pasta. I know I'm heading

the right way. I know I will look

like Sophia Loren one day. Can you

see yourself doing a photo shoot

for pirelli tyres at 71? Absolutely,

as long as you promise you won't. Thanks, guys. In a moment on the show - this morning's headline news and weather. And we'll find out what's got you talking with the Sunrise Soapbox. Stay with us. (All cheer) # No, Gary, no! # Noooo, Gary! (All sing) # Go, Gary (All chant) # Go, Gary, go! # Nicorette Freshmint Gum. # You can beat the cigarette. # Tomorrow on Sunrise - join Monique Wright inside the walls of the Playboy Mansion. Hello, it's Monique from Australia to see Mr Hefner. Hello, Mr Hefner is expecting you. Come on in. It's your exclusive invitation to a world of parties, pyjamas and Playboy bunnies. Monique found it quite bizarre, and you'll see why. Monique in the Mansion, tomorrow on Sunrise. We've got more of your emails in just a sec. But right now, let's get a final check of Sunday's news with Simon.

Good morning, again, everyone. It's being reported that John Howard made a promise to Peter Costello 12 years ago that he would only serve two terms as Prime Minister to make way for the Treasurer. Nobel Peace Prize winner Jose Ramos Horta has been appointed East Timor's new Prime Minister. Lebanon says it will deport an Australian man

accused of planning a terrorist attack on Sydney. Weatherwatch now. Looking good today in Brisbane with 23 degrees. Sunny, too, in both Sydney and Canberra. Hobart should be mostly fine, while things will clear up in Melbourne. A fine 17 degrees for Adelaide. But Perth may get a few showers.

As we say down here in Lygon Street,

when the moon hits your eye like a

big pizza pie. This one is left

over from Wednesday night. It

smells a bit dodgy. I appellant

going to eat it. Is that good for

the voice for tonight? Beautiful.

Looking forward to tonight, it will

be a lot of fun, the 70s and 80s,

ACA DCA. Weal be there., should be

a challenge, backing away from your

rock roots, where you sit

comfortably. Indeed. Best of luck.

As you heard in the news, all the

papers are reporting the pact, the supposed pact that

was between

Howard and Peter Costello, in 1994,

when then shadow environment

minister Ian McLachlan overheard a

conversation between the two where

John Howard said he would only

serve two terms. He company a note

of this conversation in his wallet.

Which he pulled out after 12 years.

Very dangerous pulling anything out

after 12 years. Plenty of emails,

one from Mark. Two people that

can't keep promises made to the

Australian public are hardly likely

to keep one made to each other.

Bruce says, the only two people not

talking about this are the two

people involved. Can we please get

on with governing the country.

Margaret says: Should he quit? As

our elected leader he must are main,

regardless of any past deals he

made. He should lead by example and

teach our children you don't just

quit your job when you feel like.

Good luck tonight, be it France or

Italy. I am doing a bit of Forza

Italy. I think I'l
