Parts 2 & 3: Murray’s Wimbledon Defeat: Your Verdict
First up: well, there is only one talking point today and that’s Andy Murray. He made history by winning a place in the Wimbledon final and for a couple of hours yesterday it seemed he might even win it. In the end Federer came through like the champion he his, but I wonder if Murray’s tearful speech later achieved more, in terms of his popularity, than all his previous matches added together?

We’ll take calls on that before it’s over to Fatima for the rest of today’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Is Infertility As Heartbreaking For Men?
After that: Is infertility as heartbreaking for men as it is for women? Last week we heard our women often turn to drink if they can’t have kids. This prompted a viewer, Stuart from Bristol, to get in touch. He said infertility is just as devastating for men as it is for women and yet fellas get next to no support. Well, is it? Are men’s feelings given short shrift?

Part 6: Limit A-Level Retakes
Moving on, I want to know if we need to limit A-level retakes? Only the papers have outed this chap who took his A level math’s 29 times before passing. In truth he retook the various modules five times but even so. There are now calls to limit students to just one retake. Is that a fairer way of doing things?

Part 7: Trust Me - I’m A Snooper
And finally: can you claim you trust your partner when you regularly check their phone for suspicious msgs and emails? Jamie Oliver’s wife says she trusts her husband but regularly checks his dog and bone. Is that what trusting wives and husbands do?
