There’s not a lot to cheer about right now, particularly if you’re still not allowed to roam your city freely.

While Victoria will leave lockdown from tomorrow night, restrictions will remain and New South Wales shows no sign of getting on top of its outbreak.

But in case you’d forgotten, our cricketers have been touring the Caribbean. Overnight, we defeated the West Indies in the third ODI and won the series 2-1.

So that’s something.

And in Tokyo, Australia has recorded 3 gold medals, 1 silver and 3 bronze, putting it in sixth place (one spot behind the Brits – gah). Japan sits on top with 8 gold medals followed by the USA with 7.

The ASX is having a positive day as well, with the ASX 200 gaining 0.41% in the first couple of hours of trade.
