The Supreme Leader of Iran, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, didn't leave room for doubt or interpretation in anyone's minds when he lead Friday prayers in Tehran today.
There was no vote rigging, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won a "decisive" victory in the country's disputed presidential election last week and protestors have been warned to stop demonstrating, the Ayatollh told supporters in the Iranian capital.
We will bring you part of an interview I conducted with our Tehran reporter Reza Sayah and will take you live around the world for reaction to what is happening in Iran.
Just a reminder to all who've been asking, the reason we cannot be live in Iran at the top of the hour is because CNN has been limited by the government to one report per day. We recorded the exchange I had with Reza earlier and will bring a portion os that back to our viewers at the Idesk.
Also today, we'll explore the drama unfolding in Formula 1, with several top teams threatening to launch a rival F1 league. What will happen to the multi-billion dollar business of high-speed car racing? Take part in our Idesk poll on the topic.
We'll bring you reports on the Iphone launch and breaking news from the world of tennis: Rafael Nadal has pulled out of Wimbledon, presumably because of the knee issues he's been having.
See you on TV!
