Newspaper headlines: 'Heartbreak' for England who 'did us all proud' – BBC

Images of England's footballers, some of them wiping away tears after losing to Spain in the World Cup final, are on all the front pages.
"Proud of you" is the Daily Mirror's message for the Lionesses, while the Sun tells them: "We still think the world of you."
The Daily Telegraph says the players' desolation should be temporary because the nation's overwhelming response to this result was not despair that a dream had died, but gratitude that it came to pass at all.
Similarly, an editorial in the Daily Mail says the Lionesses can return home with their heads held high because they've brought joy and celebration to the country, at a time when the spiralling cost of living has left many in dire need of a lift.
Separately, on its front page the Mail reports that parents of babies murdered by nurse Lucy Letby are calling for a change to the law that allows offenders to refuse to attend their sentencing.
It's thought she won't be in court when the judge imposes her punishment today. One father, whose twin boys Letby tried to kill, tells the paper he feels cheated that she won't hear how her terrible actions have affected his family.
But the Daily Telegraph says it's been told by a government source that prison officers could use "lawful enforcement" to ensure Letby is in court.
The paper says under existing rules, judges can order criminals to appear and prison officers are able to use reasonable force to take them to the court. But it's believed some guards are reluctant to do so, because of the risk of legal action if they are seen to have overstepped what is "reasonable."
According to the Guardian, Letby may have harmed dozens more infants in addition to those who featured in her trial.
The paper reports that detectives have identified about 30 babies, who suffered "suspicious" incidents at the Countess of Chester Hospital. Police are also examining medical records of babies born at Liverpool women's hospital, where Letby also worked.
It is increasingly likely that Rishi Sunak will sack Home Secretary Suella Braverman in a reshuffle expected early next month, according to the i.
The paper says those around the prime minister are frustrated with what is described as her divisive rhetoric and failure to reduce the number of asylum seekers crossing the English Channel. But the article says Downing Street is also worried that outside the Cabinet she would attack the government the run-up to the next general election.
The lead story in the Financial Times says China is pushing for the Brics bloc of big developing countries to become a "full scale rival to the G7" group of industrialised democracies.
The bloc – made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa – are expected to invite several other countries to join the group at a summit starting on Wednesday in Johannesburg. But the FT says India has clashed with China, because Delhi doesn't want Brics to become a political force that openly challenges the West.
The Sun claims a growing number of American parents are naming their children after British towns and cities. Bradford, Aberdeen, Brighton and Carlisle were among newborns registered last year.
