This program is live captioned
by Ericsson Access Services. VOICEOVER: This is Seven News
with Ann Sanders. Good afternoon. A 16-year-old boy is in custody
this Anzac Day, accused of plotting
a terrorist attack on events in Sydney. Police say he was trying
to get his hands on a gun when he was arrested. What it's meant for security and the reaction from the Prime Minister
and Police Commissioner in a moment. News of the plot
didn't keep the crowds away, tens of thousands
paying their respects at dawn services across the country. Crowds then lining the streets
for the Anzac Day marches - all the highlights shortly. Also coming up,
we're live to Anzac Cove 101 years
after the landing at Gallipoli. Plus, we'll take you to the
commemorations on the Western Front in France, London and Iraq. In sport, the traditional Anzac Day
games in the NRL and the AFL. Plus, the biggest wipe-outs
of the year. And incredible scenes as the Wanderers complete
the A-League's greatest comeback to make the Grand Final. On the weather front, it's a stunning Anzac afternoon
around most of the nation. More detail in 10 minutes.

First at 4:00, a 16-year-old boy
has appeared in a Sydney court, accused of plotting
an Anzac Day terror attack. Police say he was arrested
after he tried to obtain a gun. Live to Tim Lester in Canberra. Tim, the Prime Minister and his
Justice Minister have spoken today. What did they have to say? Ann, the comments from both have been more about
reassuring Australians, though Minister Michael Keenan
calls this arrest "chilling" and "disturbing". New South Wales and Federal Police
moved yesterday afternoon at 3:15 to arrest a 16-year-old boy
near his Auburn home, in Sydney's west. They claim he spent much of the
weekend trying to obtain a gun. He did not appear
at a closed hearing in Parramatta Children's Court today and was denied bail. Police have not linked
the 16-year-old to any particular Anzac Day event but say his arrest was necessary
to protect public safety. They also say there is
an online component to this case and their comments imply
he acted alone. The risk from this particular threat
has been thwarted. Go out and enjoy this sacred day. We're very concerned that this is part of a pattern
we've been observing where people are targeting, younger and younger people
are targeted and incited to go and commit an act of terror. We take great care in ensuring
Australians are safe at all times and on every day. NSW Police say the case has prompted
them to increase security around Anzac events today. Our national terror threat level
is unchanged at probable. Tim Lester in Canberra, thank you. The threat of an attack
didn't keep people at home with large crowds
attending dawn services on this 100th anniversary
of the first Anzac Day. Many braved cold and wet conditions
as they honoured our fallen heroes and those still serving.


A sombre service at the Cenotaph
in Martin Place on the centenary
of Sydney's first Anzac Day march. (DRUMS PLAY)

Thousands gathered in darkness
to pay their respects to the fallen, their memories still
very much alive. The Anzacs live on. They live on us in this service. It's 101 years since Australian and New Zealand
soldiers landed at Gallipoli. Stories from their diaries
were read to a new generation. "Artillery shells were bursting
everywhere "and you could see machineguns
knocking bits off the trees "and sparking against the wire. "When men looked over the top, "they saw no-man's land leaping up
everywhere in showers of dust." In Canberra, pictures
of ex-servicemen and women were projected onto the War Memorial as letters were read out
from those who never made it home. "Kiss little Gwen
and our new baby." "I have seen so much suffering
and sorrow here "that more than ever
I have realised the tragedy of war." For me, on a personal note, it's about remembering my close
friends who I lost in Afghanistan. Certainly makes mornings like this
very sombre. But it's one of those times when we
must reflect and we must remember. From the Shrine of Remembrance
in Melbourne to Adelaide Showground, people young and old turned out. Some slept outside
in a unique tribute warmed by the Eternal Flame. It was a wet morning at Currumbin
on the Gold Coast but massive crowds braved the rain, dozens laying wreaths
before the sun rose. WOMAN: (SINGS)
# Of beauty rich and rare. # Numbers were down in Perth but
tens of thousands still gathered at the State War Memorial
in Kings Park. On a clear morning in Hobart,
the focus was on younger Australians honouring loved ones who sacrificed
so much. Uncle Bill served in the Boer War, which was the very first war
he served in. He served at Anzac Cove
in World War I and he also served in World War II.

The nation's leaders
joined the commemorations at the Australian War Memorial
in Canberra. Amelia Brace is there. A cold start cleared the way
for a beautiful and busy day in the nation's capital. This morning the parade grounds out the front
of the Australian War Memorial swelled with pomp and ceremony as thousands watched on for
the annual national Anzac Day march. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull
and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten were among them. This Anzac Day we thank the men
and women who serve and have served, those who have brought
and who bring hope in times of despair. Those whose names we may not know but whose courage and sacrifice
we will honour forever. We will remember them. Earlier, 55,000 people
braved 6-degree temperatures for the Dawn Service. War Memorial Director
Dr Brendan Nelson said it's a clear sign the spirit
of the Anzac is strong. In our midst are men and women
who have served our country in recent
and not-so-recent conflicts, who are suffering, who've been affected by
what they've done, and it means so much to them
to see people just turn out and show their respects
and their gratitude. This afternoon, people are taking the chance
to visit the Shrine of Remembrance and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as part of the busiest day
of the year here at the Australian War Memorial.

It may have changed course this year but Sydney's Anzac Day parade was
still as big and colourful as ever, more than 100,000 people
lining the streets to cheer on our veterans,
current servicemen and women and their families. Chris Maher was there. Sydney's Anzac Day march
has been moved to a brand new route here along Elizabeth Street but there's been no less enthusiasm
from marchers and spectators. Now, on the stroke of 9:00
this morning, the march began a new era, having been shifted
from George Street because of the construction
of light rail. Now, around 20,000
ex and current service personnel have marched or ridden in vehicles
or been pushed in wheelchairs. (DRUMS BEAT)

They've been joined by the thousands
of proud relatives of diggers who've since passed away. Now, any concerns about security
around the 4-hour march haven't dampened the event. Perfect April weather... (BAGPIPES SKRIL) ..and the cheers of onlookers
have brought many smiles and waves. Who are the kisses for? The whole of the crowd. The ones we fought for. The ship I served on at wartime,
a crew of 260, and there's seven of us left. A great crowd
and it's really good to see. Puts a bit of a kick in you,
it's wonderful. I just I think it's a great time
to remember, to reflect and to enjoy each other's company when we haven't seen each other
for so long. It's been brilliant. I'd love a drink of water! I'm as dry as a Pommy's towel and it don't get any drier
than that, mate! But enjoying the sun all the same?
Oh, too right I am! 101 years
since the landing at Gallipoli and the Anzac spirit still lives on. (MARCHING BAND PLAYS) After the march, of course, there's the traditional gathering
of old comrades in pubs and clubs around the city... (CHEERS!) ..toasting the memory of those
who couldn't be here today. In Melbourne, Vietnam veterans have
led the parade for the first time. This year marks the 50th anniversary
of the Battle of Long Tan. Thousands lined St Kilda Road
to cheer them on. In Brisbane, the procession was led by
serving members of the RAAF. (MARCHING BAND PLAYS)

There were large crowds too
at the parade in Adelaide and pouring rain in Perth
didn't put people off with big numbers gathering to
watch the parade through the city. There was unprecedented security
for the dawn service at Gallipoli where the sacrifices
of our soldiers 101 years ago gave birth to the Anzac spirit. Robert Ovadia joins us live
from there. Rob, crowd numbers were down
this year. What was the mood like?

There is no doubting at all they were significantly down. 14,000 last year. Probably unfair to compare this year but even on previous years well down. I would put it at 1500 with more people arriving through the night. As for the mood, it was a weird. It was jubilant. With all the security, x-rays, snipers, concrete barriers, people felt safe from the beginning. I got that impression from everyone I spoke to. They are right jubilant and got weary through the night. Very solemn for the service. The sounds and particularly the poignant silences as well. The crowd was reminded about what Anzac Day is all about. It is a story of courage, resilience
and a unique Anzac spirit of rolling your sleeves up
and getting the job done no matter what the adversity.

Perhaps the most poignant statement, I guess, of all is from the New Zealand defence minister. He made the observation that from all we have learnt the planet is still plagued by the source of conflict that forced this conflict. Robert Ovadia live from Gallipoli,
thank you. Let's get a check
of this evening's weather forecast with David Brown. How's this Anzac Day wrapping up,
Brownie? Ann, it's been a stunning day
across most of the nation this afternoon. That said a showery change
is slipping across WA.

This is it on radar - frequent showers and the odd storm
streaming in from the Indian Ocean over Perth and surrounding areas

There is a stronger system on the way. 7mm has fallen in Perth since nine o'clock this morning. Looking at the nine o'clock this morning. Looking
at the rest of the country, high pressure is responsible for clear and warm conditions around SA, Victoria and Tasmania. Moist onshore winds around the northern NSW coast and the south-east of Queensland. Across the tropical north it has been incredibly dry.

One at two showers in moment. Tomorrow's forecast is coming up
a little later, Ann. Next in Seven's Afternoon News - Channel 9's admission
over the Beirut kidnap fiasco. Also, the hunt for a killer - the man wanted
over the bashing murder of a woman in her Sydney home. And an astronaut's record-breaking
marathon run in space.

At Apia, we know you've lived more. You've shared more, loved more, talked more and listened more. You've appreciated more. And you've done so much more. At Apia, we give you more. We take the time to listen
to your insurance needs, and you'll speak to someone
right here in Australia 24/7. We believe your experience
deserves more. If you're over 50, call Apia
on 13-50-50 for a chat today.

You're watching
Seven's Afternoon News on this Anzac day and spectacular pictures
of the RAAF fly-past over Sydney Harbour this morning - three Hawk fighter jets
on a backdrop of stunning blue sky. And we'll have more
on the Anzac commemorations shortly, including Prince Harry
at the dawn service in London. Plus, he joins William and Kate in a new campaign
to raise awareness of mental health. A man-hunt is continuing
this afternoon for a man accused of bashing his
partner to death with a cricket bat. Tina Kontozis's violent death has shocked members of her
local community in Sydney's south. Ashlea Brown reports. Good afternoon. The victim's 17-year-old son is recovering here
at Sutherland Hospital after being injured
trying to protect his mother who was killed in a brutal attack
yesterday. Police have stepped up their search for Stephen Boyd,
who remains on the run. He's accused of beating
Tina Kontozis to death with a cricket bat. Police were called to the
Bundeena home yesterday afternoon after a resident heard screams. Tina's teenage son was injured
when he fought back and tried to protect his mother
from his father.

Sorry, we seem to have a problem with that story. We will move on. Police are still trying
to identify a woman who was found inside a blowhole
north of Sydney. The woman's naked body was found
floating face down at Snapper Point yesterday morning. It's understood
she suffered multiple stab wounds but police are still waiting
on an autopsy to determine exactly how she died. The woman is described
as Asian in appearance, aged between 20 and 35. Police have followed up
several calls from the public but they haven't led to any clues. Anyone who has concerns about
a woman matching her description is asked to call Crime Stoppers.

Dozens of residents
had to be evacuated after a massive blaze broke out
at an apartment complex in the US. The building
was still under construction when it erupted into flames
and quickly spread to nearby homes. and three police officers
were treated for smoke inhalation. Officials are trying to determine
why the blaze started. Tens of thousands of runners have taken part
in this year's London Marathon, including an astronaut in space. Tim Peake ran the 42km
on a treadmill on the International Space Station. He even broke the record
for the fastest marathon in orbit. Back on Earth, Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge ran
the fastest London Marathon ever. He missed breaking the record
for the fastest marathon in history by 8 seconds.

Fellow Kenyan Jemima Sumgong
recovered from an early fall to be the first woman
across the line.

Next in Seven's Afternoon News, we're live to London as royalty
joins the Anzac commemorations. Also, the cause that brought
Harry, William and Kate together for their biggest project. And saying goodbye to Prince, the shock revelation
about his last days.

Prince Harry has paid tribute to the
Anzacs at a Dawn Service in London, laying a wreath
on behalf of the Queen. Ben Lewis is at the
Australian War Memorial. Ben, it's the first of three
services happening in London today.

That is right. A few 100 people at the dawn service That is right. A few 100 people at
the dawn service this morning, numbers down on previous years. Prince Harry was among them. His dedication to ex- service men and women is well known. This is far from his first dawn service and he laid a wreath under the Wellington art along with the Australian high Commissioner, Alexander Downer, and the chief of the Australian Defence Force. Many people are now on their way to the Senate half, just around the corner from Big Ben, for the parade. --To the Cenotaph. Back in 1916 Britons were saying thank you to the Anzacs for their sacrifices. Sadly many who marched then went on to be killed in the Western front. After today's parade the services will move to Westminster Abbey where there will be eight remembrance service. Prince Harry will attend that and once again play a wreath on behalf of the Queen. -- once again place a wreath. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
and Prince Harry have appeared
in a new advertising campaign raising awareness
of mental health challenges. The royal trio posed
in blue headbands for Heads Together to support London Marathon runners. We can all play our part by
talking and listening to each other and helping each other find support.

Let's get our heads together and change the conversation
on mental health. OK, we do a serious one.
Do a serious one? (LAUGHTER)

This is the biggest project William, Kate and Harry
have done together. As the world waits to hear
how music legend Prince died, it's been revealed
he didn't sleep for 6.5 days before his body was found. His family and close friends
have said goodbye at a modest service in his hometown. Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to
get through this thing called life. His farewell
belied his public persona - small, understated, private. # I'm crazy!

# I just want your extra time
and your # Kiss. # A departure from the master showman
he was on stage, the eclectic superstar whose song-writing and fashion
were a magnet for millions around the world, including thousands
who've arrived non-stop outside his Paisley Park estate. His custom-made piano
recently delivered and unveiled at his final party now all alone. The celebration
was very sombre and quiet. The singer's family
confirmed Saturday his body was cremated, final resting place for the remains
undisclosed. Since his death,
a parade of salutes. 'The Boss' Bruce Springsteen
serenaded Prince's memory by playing Purple Rain
at a New York City concert. # Purple rain, purple rain... # And closer to the legend's home, bells tolled his tunes today
at Minneapolis's City Hall. (BELLS TOLL) Ladies and gentlemen, Prince! (APPLAUSE)

Last night, Saturday Night Live
devoted an entire program to him. Prince has never not been cool. Jimmy Fallon hosting, showcasing clips of
the performance visits to Studio 8H, starting in 1981, through his last stop in 2015.

You're watching
Seven's Afternoon News. Stay with us. Next, we'll return
to the Anzac Day commemorations, including the services
at Villers-Bretonneux and Iraq. Plus, meet the 101-year-old digger
marching in his first parade - why it took him so long. And running on empty - the plane that's just flown
for three days without using a drop of fuel.

VOICEOVER: This is Seven News
with Ann Sanders. You're watching
Seven's Afternoon News. It's great to have your company. These are our top stories. A 16-year-old boy
is in police custody, accused of plotting a terror attack
at Anzac Day services in Sydney. Police say
he was trying to source a gun. Thousands of people have attended
dawn services and Anzac day parades across the nation, to pay tribute to the Anzac spirit. Numbers were down
at Anzac services at Gallipoli but hundreds of Australians and
New Zealanders attended the event, despite a heightened
security threat. And Prince Harry has laid a wreath
on behalf of the Queen during special Anzac services
in London. And still to come in sport
with Mel McLaughlin, the winners and losers
in surfing's Big Wave Awards.

Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove has attended the Anzac Day service
at Villers-Bretonneux in France, marking 100 years since our diggers
fought on the Western Front. Chris Reason is there. The Anzac Day service
here at Villers-Bretonneux has concluded in the last few hours led by the Governor-General,
Sir Peter Cosgrove - the first time
an Australian head of state has led the service here in France. He did, though, address - as expected, as predicted - a far smaller crowd than
had been seen in previous years. Organisers say around 3,000 people
attended this year, about half the number
which attended last year, about 6,500. The reason - terror incidents
in both France and Belgium were cited as the main reason
for the low turnout and we saw evidence of the concern
of authorities about that as well this morning with unparalleled security. They set up a security centre at the front of the war cemetery
here, the first time they have done that, and everybody that came in
to attend this service had to go through X-ray machines
and body scanners and physical body searches as well - an unparalleled level of security. Now, it's a great shame
for the region and the organisers because this is a critical part
of the Anzac story. This year marks 100 years since
the diggers moved from Gallipoli to here, France and Belgium,
the Western Front. And, of course,
the slaughter and sacrifice here so much greater than Gallipoli - 45,000 young Australians lost, eight times the numbers
in Gallipoli - and tonight, today,
they remembered all of them. Of course, thankfully, gloriously, we Australians
found some respite, comfort and another family
behind the lines - the French. Today's service is also the start
of the centenary memorials for the Western front. We have Fromelles and Pozieres
in July, building to the 100th anniversary
of this famous battle at Villers-Bretonneux - one that some say
turned the course of the war. A great victory
for the Australian troops. That, of course,
will be held Anzac Day 2018 and organisers are hoping that
numbers will have picked up by then. Back to you. with a dawn service inside the walls
of our base near Baghdad. Hundreds of Australian
and New Zealand troops are serving as part of
Task Group Taji, one of our biggest shared missions
since Gallipoli. Just thankful for those
that served before us. We're the reason... If it wasn't for them,
we wouldn't be here on this mission. There's no public holiday
for our soldiers. They all returned to work
after the service. At 101 years of age, there aren't too many firsts
left in life, but today, one of
Australia's oldest soldiers marched in his first
Anzac Day parade. An administration oversight
meant John 'Cop' Hingley only recently
received his war medals, 70 years after he served
in the South Pacific. A police escort led the 101-year-old
to the Port Douglas service where he was received
a huge applause. It's beyond me. I could almost cry. It's really, really lovely. The World War II veteran is believed to be
one of the last living members of the 2/26th Battalion. Presidential primaries will be held
in five US states tomorrow and if the polls are correct, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
will win them all. But their rivals aren't
giving up hope just yet. In front of a crowd
of 7,000 enthusiastic supporters in Providence, Rhode Island, Bernie Sanders making a case
for staying in the race for the Democratic nomination. This campaign is doing well
and will win because we are listening
to ordinary people and not spending half my life
with the billionaires, trying to hustle
campaign contributions. Sanders seemingly unfazed by
Hillary Clinton's double-digit lead in the new NBC poll
of Pennsylvania - part of a rough road ahead in
all five states that vote Tuesday. Ignoring Sanders,
a confident Hillary Clinton, taking on Trump instead - her campaign releasing
a biting new web video aimed at Donald Trump's promise
he can be more presidential.

TRUMP: Knock the crap out of him,
would you? I'd like to punch him in the face. I could stand in the
middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody
and I wouldn't lose any votes. That more presidential Trump
not ready to make an appearance late today in Maryland, saying he likes people better
after he knocks out of the race. Right now, I don't like
lyin' Ted Cruise. But you know what? In about four or five weeks
from now, I think he's gonna be
one of my best friends. I mean, that's the way it works. That's Ted Cruz, who - along with John Kasich
and Bernie Sanders - is fighting the perception
that the race is already over. (CHEERING) A perception that some Yale students
in Newhaven tonight clearly aren't buying. Today marks one year since
thousands of people were killed in a powerful earthquake in Nepal. Residents clashed with police
on the streets of Kathmandu, saying the government hasn't done
enough to rebuild the city since the 7.8-magnitude quake hit. The Red Cross says $4.1 billion of international
funding hasn't been spent because of political in-fighting. A candlelight vigil
was held at Durbar Square to remember the victims. A Swiss adventurer flying an experimental solar plane
around the world has completed another milestone. 56-year-old Bertrand Piccard
made the dangerous 3-day trip from Hawaii to California
over the Pacific Ocean. He's attempting the historic trip
without consuming a drop of fuel using solar energy
to charge the plane's battery. Piccard will now cross the US, stopping in New York before flying
over the Atlantic to Europe. The Frenchman known as 'Spiderman' has climbed the tallest building
in Kazakhstan's capital. Alain Robert scaled the 168m tower
in Almaty in just over an hour, using suction pads
to stick to the glass windows. Despite strong winds, he managed
to take a selfie on the climb, while thousands of spectators
gathered below. Next in Seven's Afternoon News - 10 years on, how the people of Beaconsfield
are remembering the great escape. And in sport with Mel McLaughlin, the Wanderers
through to the Grand Final, winning an A-League classic.

Giving is...doing your bit.

It's being there for your kids. And for Norma from next door. It's your Saturday. And your little girl's big day. It's about having a go and a laugh. Always showing your respect. And leading with your heart.

Giving is a part of who we are too. Your local club.

You're watching Seven's
Afternoon News on this Anzac Day. Still to come,
Mel McLaughlin with sport. And we go underwater
with Rio-bound swimmer Kyle Chalmers as he comes face to face
with sharks. Police are investigating whether a tomahawk attack
in Melbourne's north-east was a case of mistaken identity. A 20-year-old suffered head injuries when he was assaulted
by two men and a woman at Heidelberg West last night. Witnesses say
he was covered in blood. Just at a mate's house and this guy's come running over,
screaming help! He'd just got tomahawked
to the head. The trio escaped in a maroon sedan. The victim is in a stable condition. Channel 9 admits it "made mistakes"
in the botched kidnapping attempt that put a 60 Minutes crew
and Brisbane mother Sally Faulkner in a Beirut jail. Ms Faulkner has been reunited
with family in Australia but the network has described
its role in the story as a failure. Because, ultimately,
she's lost everything, you know, she's lost her babies. I had to try.

You had to try. We understand.
We wanted you to try. Reporter Tara Brown maintains
they were just journalists reporting on a story
about a desperate mum. The people of Beaconsfield
in Tasmania had another reason
to pause and remember today. It's 10 years
since the disastrous mine collapse that claimed the life
of Larry Knight and left his workmates
Brant Webb and Todd Russell trapped nearly a kilometre
underground. Nick Etchells has the story. This was an event that really
captured the nation's attention from when the mine collapsed
on Anzac Day 2006, killing Larry Knight, to win the two survivors walked free
two weeks later from this elevator behind me. It is an occasion that
Todd Russell's family has marked with a visit
to the Beaconsfield mine. We always come back for Anzac Day,
just not only for obvious reasons but because it is something
we've always done as kids. Bring back a lot of memories
being here, I guess. I didn't really like it. The two men have suffered
with post-traumatic stress disorder in the 10 years
since the mine collapse but thankfully, seem to be coming through
the other side of that. The same can also be said
for the town. Although the mine
no longer operates, it is now a museum which seems to be a must-stop place
for tourists making their way around Tasmania and that is breathing some real life
back into the town. The mining heritage museum
has been amazing for the town so there's lots of tourists
that come. The township
is a very resilient town and it has gone through phases
of hard times. The Beaconsfield community
has chosen not to mark the 10-year anniversary
of the mine collapse. They will instead hold
small community events on May 9 - the anniversary of when
the two men walked free.

Sport now with Mel McLaughlin. Mel, it's a big Anzac Day of sport.

The Dragons and Roosters
are underway in their traditional Anzac Day clash
at Allianz Stadium. Earlier in Newcastle, Nathan Brown and Trent Barrett
joined their sides on field but didn't cross paths. After losing 53-0 last week, the Knights had two tries overruled
by the bunker early against Manly. It was a lacklustre contest but the Sea Eagles took control
in the second half. COMMENTATOR: Tom Trbojevic! It was a costly end for both sides. Veterans Jarrod Mullen
and Brett Stewart both suffered hamstring injuries. It got worse for Manly when
Tom Trbojevic suffered a leg injury and was carried off. Still, the Eagles claimed their
fourth win of the season, 26-10. The annual Anzac Day clash
between Collingwood and Essendon has produced one of the
sports stories of the year with former US college basketballer
Mason Cox scoring the opening goal
in his very first touch on debut. COMMENTATOR: He rides it home. What a beauty. At 211cm, the American was recruited
from Oklahoma University. His Pies are blowing the Bombers
away at the MCG, leading by 76 points at half-time. The Wanderers believe
they are primed to finally capture
their maiden A-League title on their third attempt in Sunday's Grand Final
against Adelaide. Western Sydney
pulled off a semifinal escape act at Pirtek Stadium, coming from 3-0 down to defeat
Brisbane in a 9-goal classic. Romeo Castelen netted a hat-trick before Dario Vidosic clinched an
unforgettable victory in extra time. COMMENTATOR: And Vidosic!
5-4! Utter madness! You could see the confidence grow,
the belief and they know that
physically and mentally, they can handle any challenge. In the Premier League, Leicester City continued its charge
towards glory. The Foxes thrashed Swansea 4-0 to move eight points clear
on the ladder. And Mile Jedinak
will become the first Aussie to captain a team
in the FA Cup final after Crystal Palace won its semi
against Watford 2-1. Palace will play Manchester United
in next month's final. Rafael Nadal has claimed
his 49th clay court title, equalling the record
of Argentine great Guillermo Vilas. The Spaniard easily accounted
for Kei Nishikori in the Barcelona Open final, winning in straight sets. After a long slump, Nadal is starting to look
more like the player that won 14 Grand Slam titles. The world number 5 will chase an
unprecedented 10th French Open crown in Paris next month.

9-time MotoGP world champion
Valentino Rossi won his first race of the season, leading all the way at
the Spanish Grand Prix. Local heroes Jorge Lorenzo and
Marc Marquez completed the podium. It's the first time since 2009 that the race hasn't been won
by a Spaniard. Many of the world's
most respected big-wave surfers have been honoured in California at the World Surf League's
Big Wave Awards. 43-year-old legend Shane Dorian
took out the coveted Ride of the Year award for his effort at the fearsome
Jaws break in Hawaii. Niccolo Porcella won
Wipe-out of the Year for his bone-jarring spill
at Teahupoo in Tahiti.

Just madness, absolutely spectacular stuff. What about the Western Sydney Wanderers, nine goals it was great. Up next, an Olympic hopeful
dives into the deep end with sharks. But first, here's what's coming up
in your local Seven News at 6:00.

Teen Olympian Kyle Chalmers has got
his adrenaline pumping before Rio, taking the plunge
in a daring shark cage dive off South Australia's Port Lincoln. The swimming sensation's
returned home

Out of the pool and into the chilly waters
off Port Lincoln, swim star Kyle Chalmers comes face to face
with the ocean's top predator. As the enormous white pointer
circles the cage, the 17-year-old
appears cool and collected but back in the boat,
he admits he was out of his depth. I had a bit of a fright, actually,
I was a bit worried. I didn't really know what to do so I stuck my feet under the thing
and held on for dear life. I'd love to be able to swim
at that speed and look so graceful. I don't think I'll ever -
ever be that good! The high school student
secured his ticket to Rio just over two weeks ago after he finished second
in the 100m freestyle final at the Olympic trials in Adelaide. COMMENTATOR: Chalmers coming
at him, brilliant swim! McEvoy...
Chalmers is going to get there! The 17-year-old! Now back in his hometown, Chalmers is enjoying
a well-earned break before he dives back into training
on Wednesday. My skills are definitely
not near world-class and what I need to be at, so I can work
on my tumble turns and dives and just holding water
while I'm swimming, it's gonna make
a massive difference.

Visitors have been treated
to a special sight at Prague Zoo. They've been introduced to the
newest resident, a baby gorilla. 24-year-old Shinda gave birth
to the little one on Saturday in what was a surprise arrival. Delighted keepers didn't realise
the proud mum was pregnant. Mother and baby are doing well. The gorillas are one of the most
popular attractions at the zoo. Next in Seven's Afternoon News, the weather forecast
with David Brown.

David Brown joins us
with the forecast. And, Brownie, how long will
this mild and sunny weather last?

The working week, Ann,
and good afternoon. Let's go to our weather wall. In Adelaide,
it's a stunning afternoon.

A little warmer tomorrow.

That pattern will persist for most of the week. In Melbourne, the sky will clear but a bit of cloud. Light wind at the moment. Warmer conditions tomorrow. Blue sky in Sydney, light wind and 22 degrees. We expect 24 tomorrow. This nice mild spell will persist as we head towards the weekend. Different story in Brisbane, a few showers moving in and can you see it? A rainbow. The end is sitting across state parliament I believe. 23 at the moment. A moist south-easterly is duelling showers along the Queensland coast, driving showers around the northern coast of NSW as well. In the west a strong cold front is pushing across the south of WA. There is a lot more rain on the way. Have a look at the forecast. Another big front on the way, and will engulf the south-west corner. It is warming up across SA, Victoria, inland NSW but the shale Ory weather is expected to persist across large parts of the Queensland coast.

That's the latest weather.
More at 6:00. Ann. That's the Afternoon News

to winning My Kitchen Rules. Only three teams are left standing. You're fighting for a place
in the grand final! All of Australia will be watching. Go! Who will you be cheering for? And who will become...

ANDREW O'KEEFE: These four strangers
must work as a team to win thousands of dollars, but standing in their way is one of
the sharpest minds in Australia, the Chaser. The Chase is on.

Welcome to The Chase Australia. Hope you've had
a wonderful afternoon. Prepare to focus. We've got some
serious brain power back here. Let's meet the team. Hi. I'm Annabel. I'm an author and a poet, and I once
danced with Prince Andrew. Hi. I'm Rhyse. I'm a law student,
and I'm also a part-time model. Hi. I'm Todd. When I'm not working in IT, I spend hours of time in my studio
recording music. Hi. My name's Kathleen. I come from a family of
circus performers, and my grandfather was
the strongest man in Britain. Oh, the Governess is
the strongest woman in Britain. That is my team. Their challenge is to bring
as much money as they can down the board into the team bank. But placing them
on the bed of nails, whacking them with the old hammer, will be the Chaser. If they get caught,
they lose the money, they go home. Make it through to the bank and they could share in
a great team cash prize. Everyone faces the Chaser. Tonight, Annabel is first.

Welcome to the show, Annabel. Thank you. An author and performance poet. Yes. I do do some performance
poetry, and I had a book out, and it did very well.
Yes? But it was a picture book and it was

three kids, you're writing books, you're performing your poetry.
Yeah. Once worked in the royal household,
I believe. Yes.
What was your position? Scullery maid or...? Well, actually, yes. Really?
Yeah! Between university,
I worked in the royal household, and I pushed porridge down a long,
dark corridor for my morning job, and decanted it into varying degrees
of pots going from the staff dining room all
the way to the royal dining room. Oh, how hilar.
Was it a good place to work? It was fantastic.
Yeah? We had some great balls and we also got to go in
the big fancy dress parade. Fun. The royal family all had a lot of
fun with us as well. Oh, lovely. That's where I got to dance
with Prince Andrew. You danced with Randy Andy? Really? (BOTH LAUGH) Alright, Annabel.

Any faves, any particular nemeses? I would not like to face the Beast. Really? Because he's nasty? Well, Anne's my favourite. Yeah. We're not willing to
slander the Beast, right, just in case it is him. But hoping for the best.
We'll find out after the break.

Excuse me. Mr Aleksandr,
