Newspaper headlines: Armed police, Lottery winners, Olympic Games and online breaks

More armed police on patrol on the streets of London, the family that won £61m on the Lottery and one day to go until the Olympics feature in the press.

The Robocop-style officers in their distinctive kit appear on the front of the Telegraph and the Financial Times.

The Times says armed police will be deployed on routine patrols in High Streets, sports grounds and shopping centres for the first time amid heightened fears of a terrorist attack.

"Police marksmen with SIG semiautomatic carbines and Glock sidearms, will carry out foot patrols across London to deter an atrocity inspired by Islamic State," it continues.

"Tactics used at the London Olympics in 2012, including a higher number of vehicle stops by armed officers, are to become commonplace after the spate of terrorist attacks in France and Germany.

"Scotland Yard said that armed officers would use BMW motorcycles to reach the scene of an attack more quickly.

"Masked counter-terrorism officers, the elite members of the unit, have been trained to abseil down buildings or from helicopters and to launch water-borne assaults."

However, the Guardian says the announcement was met with scepticism by the Police Federation, representing rank-and-file officers, which said it would take two years for the national target for armed police to be met.

An extra 600 are planned for London and 900 in the rest of England and Wales.

The Telegraph says: "The new face of counter-terror policing in Britain was unveiled yesterday in Hyde Park, London, clad in Kevlar body armour and with an array of hi-tech weapons.

"As concern over a UK attack mounts, Scotland Yard Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe announced the first of 600 extra armed officers are ready to start work."

The FT reports that the deployment will double the amount of counter-terrorism patrols in London, increasing the number of armed officers to 2,800.

'Luckiest person on planet'

Sonia Davies has every reason to be happy after she was given the all-clear following surgery on a tumour - then won £61m on the EuroMillions Lottery.

Ms Davies shares the fortune with partner Keith Reynolds, daughters Stephanie and Courtney, and Stephanie's partner Steve Powell.

She says she is the "luckiest person on the planet", reports the Express.

"It is the £60m Lottery win that almost never happened," says the Times. "Sonia Davies decided to buy a half dozen tickets because she felt luck was on her side after undergoing life-saving surgery on a tumour in Florida."

"So convinced was Ms Davies of her good fortune that she rang her daughter at home in Monmouth and urged her to buy a lottery ticket," says the Telegraph.

"Having been told by doctors that the surgery had saved her life, she felt she was 'on a winning streak'," says the Guardian.

The i explains that looking after about 1,500 "big winners" who scoop at least £50,000 on the Lottery each year is a full time job for Camelot's Winners' Advisers.

"These employees manage the entire winning process, including writing out the cheque, managing media appearances and contacting bankers who deal with high net worth individuals," it says.

"There is a Camelot aftercare programme designed to provide legal and financial support to winners. The advisors visit winners face-to-face, sometimes at home, and may also attend the meetings with financial experts and lawyers.

"Keeping winners grounded is an important part of their job."

The Mail pictures Sonia, Stephanie and Courtney in tears with the giant cheque, and urges: "Cheer up girls, we're getting £12m each!"

The Sun says Stephanie bought six Lucky Dips from a garage - but did not check the results until Saturday night after having friends round for dinner.

Flying the flag

Andy Murray is pictured practising on the front of the Guardian having been chosen to carry the British flag at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony on Friday.

"Murray, who is aiming to repeat his London Olympic success in Rio, said that carrying the flag ahead of the British team would be one of the highlights of his career and represented the biggest honour in sport," states the Guardian.

"The Scot, appearing at his third Games, was chosen ahead of other contenders including boxer Nicola Adams and the cyclist Bradley Wiggins.

"He will lead a British contingent reduced by the fact that many of them start competition the following day around the Maracana stadium, before Pele lights the Olympic cauldron."

The Telegraph notes that Murray's wife Kim will miss the big moment, having opted to remain at home with their baby daughter Sophia.

The Times gives an insight into the Team GB training camp in Belo Horizonte before they go to Rio.

Sprinter Harry Aikines-Aryeetey and relay runner Richard Kilty were glued to a football video game.

Jamie Fox, a member of the Team GB communications team, tweeted: "That moment when the boys have been playing FOREVER and you and Dina Asher-Smith fall asleep!"

Sprinter Adam Gemili was singing along to Adele using a water bottle as a microphone a few hours later.

'Digital detox'

The Guardian says the scale of the UK's obsession with the internet has been laid bare by a new study showing that the ever-increasing hours spent online is leading to lost sleep, neglected housework and less time for friends and family.

Ofcom's annual Communications Market Report examined how people coped with spending so much time connected.

It found that more than a third of UK internet users were deciding to take "digital detox" breaks from the web.

The Guardian finishes: "While the overall picture suggested many people were realising they needed time away from the internet, the majority were enthusiastic about the benefits of the web, citing keeping up to date with current affairs, being inspired to try new experiences such as travel and restaurants, and keeping in touch with friends.

"Younger age groups, in particular, while being more aware that they were spending too much time online, were more convinced of its benefits."
