Chrystia Freeland laid down on floor of Trudeau’s office — exhausted — after sealing USMCA

Thursday 04:15 GMT

After more than a year of leading intense trade negotiations with the United States and Mexico, the first thing Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland did when the new agreement was reached was lie down on the floor of the Prime Minister’s office.

Freeland agreed that her reaction was due to exhaustion and just the thrill of the tumultuous 14 month-long process finally being over. The new trilateral pact between the U.S., Mexico and Canada, commonly referred to as USMCA, was reached at the 11th-hour on Sept. 30 and sets to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Saturday 13:35 GMT

The weather and a limited Sri Lanka side have ensured this series has not offered the world number one ODI side many tests to their status as favourites to win the World Cup on home soil next year.

Sri Lanka have not won a home one-day series since beating West Indies in 2015 and never looked like breaking that streak against a superior England outfit. Dinesh Chandimal's side did post a total that could have proved challenging though, with Dickwella - who smashed 36 from 20 balls in the rain-shortened third ODI - adapting a more circumspect approach in overcast conditions.
