'Jof brought a tear to my eyes' - Jordan

Sussex Chris Jordan admits that he felt emotional watching his Sussex and England team-mate Jofra Archer keep his nerve under pressure in last night's electrifying Lord's finale.

Jordan was the man who discovered his fellow Bajan back home in their native Barbados, before helping him to bring him to Sussex in 2016.

“I was sat there thinking regardless of what happens, I’m still very proud of him to have even got to this stage on that journey," Jordan told BBC Sussex.

“Watching Jof go through all that brought so many emotions. I found it hard to get my words out but it brought a tear to my eyes."

As to whether Lord's Archer would be the man for the job in what proved to be a Champagne Super Over, Jordan added: "He was the best person in that team to do the job.

"I'm not at all surprised. I called it from the start. He has plenty of variations and was the most fitting person for that final over. No occasion is too big for him.”

Boy critical after electric scooter crash

A teenager is fighting for his life after a second electric scooter crash in two days in London.

The 14-year-old boy suffered a serious head injury after crashing into a bus stop on Saturday, the Met Police said.

He was taken by air ambulance to hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

The crash happened on Monks Orchard Road in Beckenham, south-east London, shortly before midday.

It came one day after YouTube star and TV presenter Emily Hartridge, 35, died after being struck by a lorry while riding an electric scooter.

Ms Hartridge was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at Queen's Circus roundabout in Battersea, south-west London, shortly after 08:30 on Friday.

A DfT spokeswoman said: "Safety is at the heart of all our road laws and it is important that retailers continue to remind people at the point of sale that it is illegal to ride e-scooters on public roads."
