The main news this morning: Wales' heroic efforts at the Euros came to end last night with a 2-0 defeat to Portugal. I'm feeling a little sad this morning but what a great effort in getting to the semi-final.
Anyway there'll be more great stuff on influence skills this morning as we head into day 3. You can read all about the first 2 days by following the links below
