BBC win rights to broadcast UEFA Women's Euro 2021

The BBC has secured exclusive rights to broadcast the Women's Euro 2021 tournament in England, the broadcaster has announced.
Television bosses have struck a deal after attracting record audiences for this summer's World Cup in France, at which Phil Neville's England team reached the semi-finals.
Director of BBC Sport Barbara Slater said: 'After the success of the World Cup on the BBC and the record-breaking viewing figures for women's football, we're delighted to be the broadcaster of the UEFA Women's Euro 2021 Championship.'
A peak television audience of 11.7 million - the biggest of 2019 to date - watched the Lionesses' semi-final showdown with eventual champions the United States.
The BBC will cover every game at the Euros on television, radio and online.
Slater continued: 'At the start of this summer, we wanted to shift the dial on women's football and I feel the phenomenal coverage from France has done just that. The BBC's sport portfolio continues to go from strength to strength and we're thrilled to add the 2021 Euros to that.'
UEFA marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein promised an 'unprecedented' level of coverage of the tournament.
He said: 'UEFA is delighted to partner with the BBC for the UEFA Women's Euro in 2021, which takes place in the United Kingdom.
'The BBC will provide an unprecedented level of coverage for the competition in the host country, ensuring that the women's game is brought to the rapidly increasing fanbase in an outstanding manner.'
