    Earlier this month he published their report – The Hamilton Commission, run in association with the Royal Academy of Engineering – which identified shortcomings in education, particularly in science, technology, engineering and maths.
    Now Hamilton has pledged to pump his money into a new foundation, Mission 44, to act on the report’s findings.
    He said: “Supporting the ambitions of under-represented young people has always been important to me and Mission 44 represents my commitment to create real change within this community.
    “In my early life, I experienced first-hand how coming from an under- represented background can affect your future but, luckily for me, I was able to overcome those odds through opportunity and support.
    “I want to ensure that other young people from similar backgrounds are able to do the same.
    “The findings of The Hamilton Commission and its recommendations have provided us with a fantastic basis to begin our work.
    “Change within the industry is long overdue but we are now firmly on the journey towards transforming it for the better.”
    Hamilton, 36, has also formed Ignite, a joint charitable partnership with his racing team Mercedes.
    The multi-million-dollar fund will continue his work.
    FIGHT FOR CHANGE
    Hamilton remains the only black driver in F 1. And he added: “Mercedes have long supported my ambition to improve diversity and inclusion within the motorsport industry.
    “I am so thrilled that, through Ignite, we are able to work together to achieve this.
    “Diverse workforces are not only more successful but are also the morally correct approach for any industry.
    “The findings of The Hamilton Commission have provided us a fantastic base to begin our work and I am confident that Ignite will result in real, tangible change within motorsport.
    “For 15 years I have remained one of the few black employees within Formula One and I am proud that my work with Mercedes is going to change that for the better.”
    Hamilton, who has signed a new two-year deal with Mercedes, has the full backing of team boss Toto Wolff.
    Wolff said: “We are delighted and proud to be standing alongside Lewis.
    “Lewis has long spoken about the challenges he has faced in motorsport.

    “His determination to turn his experience into such powerful and decisive action is a measure of both his character and unwavering commitment to support people to fulfil their potential.
    “At Mercedes, we have listened and worked closely with Lewis over the last year to understand how we can help open up our sport to achieve a more diverse and inclusive workforce within our own team.
    “The opportunity is both exciting and challenging.”

    ONE of the girls who took prank pictures as Wayne Rooney dozed off was “dumped” by her fiance in the wake of the viral snaps, it was claimed last night.Trainee accountant Elise Melvin, 21, posed next to the England legend, 35, after he fell asleep on a chair inside a budget hotel room.

    Elise Melvin posed beside the seated ex-England captain in a budget hotel room on Sunday morning
    Pals Brooke Morgan and model Tayler Ryan, both 21, also took pictures with the retired Manchester United captain on Sunday morning.
    But friends said Elise’s husband-to-be, Stuart Rodger, 26, was so upset he called off their engagement hours later.
    One said: “Stuart ended it because it was all over the internet. It’s not nice.”
    The mechanical engineer declined to comment at the couple’s home in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria.
    ‘RASCAL’
    Stunning Elise’s car was parked up outside but she was unavailable.
    His and her parents both declined to comment when approached. Friends hope they can patch things up.
    The trio remained in hiding last night after Cheshire Police confirmed no offences had been committed.
    A relative of Tayler branded Rooney a “rascal” and questioned why the former ace went back to the hotel with a group of 21-year-olds.

    He said: “He’s a rascal. This is textbook for him – he’s got form.”
    Meanwhile, bosses at paper producers Kimberly Clark denied claims Brooke had been sacked for bringing the firm into disrepute.
    They said they were offering her “our full support”.

    Wayne called the police over the hotel pictures and today was quizzed by officers.
    Three girls stripped off and paraded in front of him in the room before pictures of him passed out were put online.
    One featured married dad Rooney, 35, getting close to a reveller earlier in the evening at Chinawhite nightclub, Manchester.
    The photos, taken in the city’s £60-a-night Staycity hotel, were leaked and went viral.
    Defiant Rooney, boss at Championship side Derby County, returned to pre­season training today.
    His wife Coleen, 35, was refusing to cut short a holiday with their four sons in Abersoch, North Wales — as sources insisted the former Manchester United ace was the victim of a set-up.
    Rooney called cops to complain the humiliating photos were taken without his knowledge and today was quizzed by them for over an hour.

    A source said: “Coleen is fully behind him. She feels he’s been the victim of a stitch-up.
    “She has spoken to him and is entirely backing his version of events. They are rock solid.”
    Rooney met model Tayler Ryan, Elise Melvin and their pal Brooke Morgan, all 21 and celebrating a birthday, after inviting them to his VIP booth.
    The fan who filmed him in the street said: “I ran over when I spotted it was him. I was so excited to see my footballing hero.
    “He’d clearly had a heavy night and was all over the place. He was struggling to put words together. It was daylight and heaving in town.”
    Timeline to snapsTHIS is how Wayne Rooney’s night on the lash in Manchester unfolded hour by hour:
    SATURDAY 3PM: His Derby County kick off pre-season friendly against Salford City at the Peninsula Stadium, and lose 2-1.
    SATURDAY NIGHT: He heads into Manchester city centre with pals and is given VIP booth in exclusive Chinawhite nightclub. He gets close to a blonde reveller after inviting Elise Melvin, Tayler Ryan and Brooke Morgan, all 21, to join him.
    SUNDAY MORNING 4AM: Chinawhite closes its doors as revellers head out into Manchester’s streets.
    5.15AM: Rooney filmed by Manchester United fan walking back towards the Staycity hotel, with Tayler Ryan and another blonde.
    8AM: Snapchat pictures taken by the friends in the room begin to leak online before going viral.
    MONDAY 11AM: Rooney arrives for training at Derby County
    3PM: Coleen hits the beach in Abersoch, Wales, with kids and her parents.

    Rooney carried on walking before joining the girls in their room moments later.
    Tayler, who has 13,000 Instagram followers, posted a pic of her and Rooney on a sofa.
    She used a filter to decorate some of her snaps, scrawling the word “cute” all across her face. One picture showed Rooney waving his arm while holding a glass of wine.
    But after he nodded off the group decided to strip and pose. One flashed her bottom next to him, captioning it “Mooney Rooney”.
    Another made a peace sign next to him while one girl lay on the bed in her lingerie in a photo they titled “Sleepy Wayne”. Footage circulated on social media showed her strut over to him before bending over his face.
    ‘WILDEST NIGHT’
    Friends described it as the “wildest night of their lives” but insisted there was no sexual contact.
    One added: “Wayne was very complimentary of them, of how they looked, but nothing happened.”
    When he eventually woke Rooney texted a pal who picked him up. The girls, all of Barrow, Cumbria, deny any wrongdoing.
    Tayler’s mum Angela, 43, said: “The thing is, it’s gone into a group chat and someone has posted it.
    “It was never meant to be out there in the world. It’s erupted into this absolute volcano.

    Another relative said: “Yes, they’ve been stupid or drunk or whatever they were doing. But I’m 41, he’s nearly the same age as me.
    “Tayler doesn’t want to return to work at the moment because of this.”

    A ROONEY tackle in training yesterday left Derby midfielder Jason Knight with an ankle injury that could put him out for 12 weeks.

    THE mum of a 21-year-old girl pictured partying with Wayne Rooney has questioned why he boozed with her despite a 14-year age gap.The former Man United ace, 35, partied into the early hours with Snapchat model Tayler Ryan and her pals Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan, all 21.
    Tayler’s mum has questioned why Rooney was partying with 21-year-olds

    He was seen passed out in a chair as the girls cavorted in their undies at their £60-a-night room in Manchester.
    One flashed her bottom next to the retired England striker — then posted it online, captioning it “Mooney Rooney”.
    Another photo which went viral yesterday saw him leaning in on one blonde reveller at a nightclub.
    But Tayler’s mum Angela has now questioned why the Derby manager was even spending time with the girls given their age.
    She said: “The poor girls were just going out for a 21st birthday.
    “They’re 21 and he’s nearly 40. He’s invited them over. He sent over a security guard to invite them over to his VIP booth.
    “It’s upset them all. They’re in tears. She’s a good girl and comes from a decent family.
    🔵 Read our Wayne Rooney live blog for the very latest updates
    “They thought they were being funny but I’ve told them it was absolutely stupid.
    “I feel awful for them but I’m also angry because they’ve been stupid.”
    ‘VERY COMPLIMENTARY’
    Rooney was out partying hours after Derby lost 2-1 away to Salford in a pre- season friendly on Saturday.
    Friends revealed he and his pals invited the girls to his VIP booth at the exclusive Chinawhite club in Manchester.
    One said: “The girls were out celebrating a pal’s birthday.
    “They love Chinawhite and are always there but couldn’t believe their luck when they were invited over — they were stunned.
    “They spent a couple of hours with him and his pals there before they moved on.”
    Rooney is then understood to have been accompanied by two friends as he went to the girls’ hotel room.
    The friend went on: “They were flattered. They had a really good night and said Wayne and his friends were lovely.
    “The girls all love to party but I think this was probably the wildest night of their lives.
    “There was no sexual contact — it was just a great night.
    “Wayne was very complimentary of them, of how they looked, but nothing happened.”
    PHOTO FEARS
    Rooney has now called the police after the photos emerged of him in a hotel room with the scantily-clad girls.
    The ex-Utd ace was angry they had taken snaps of him asleep without his permission and feared he had been the victim of a “set-up”.
    Tayler, who has 13,000 Instagram followers, posted a photo of her sitting with Rooney on the settee.
    She used a filter to decorate some of her snaps, scrawling the word “cute” all across her face.
    One picture shows the bleary-eyed Derby County manager, wearing a black hoodie and jeans, waving his arm in the air while holding a glass of wine.
    However the married dad of four later passed out — so the girls decide to start playing pranks.
    One is throwing a peace sign next to the sleeping celebrity while the other is laying on the bed in her lingerie in a photo they titled “Sleepy Wayne”.
    Another shows one in a G-string jokingly baring her bum next to the star’s head, with the caption “Mooney Rooney”.
    Footage also circulated on social media showing her strut over to him before bending over his face.
    The friend said: “They were all having fun dancing around with Wayne and his mates and posting about it on Snapchat but they couldn’t stop laughing when he passed out. They decided to have some fun.”
    Rooney, married to Coleen, then made a swift exit from the Staycity complex after he eventually woke up yesterday morning.
    The pal continued: “Wayne left straight away. He was very rough. There was no hanging around — he just got up and went.
    “He texted a mate to ask him to pick him up, went downstairs and waited for the friend to pick him up and then he left.
    “Then the girls started putting it on social media and it’s just gone viral.
    “He may have expected that so went first thing into a waiting car and probably back to Coleen.
    “I suspect he’ll have a few questions to answer back at home.”
    The three girls were spotted leaving Staycity at 12.30pm yesterday.
    They confirmed they had spent the night with Rooney but refused to go into details.
    SAVING HIS MARRIAGE
    It comes after sources claimed he was going to “quit alcohol” to save his marriage after a series of scandals while playing for DC United in the States.
    He said he was going teetotal when he returned to the UK in 2019.
    Coleen, 35, had also allegedly previously asked him to get help with his drinking.
    Sources told The Sun he wanted a “fresh start” and “knows losing his unhealthy relationship with the bottle would be the best thing”.
    Rooney, dad to Kai, 11, Klay, eight, Kit, five, and Cass, three, has been in the dog house with Coleen for a series of drunken scandals.
    In 2017, he was driving Laura Simpson home when he was nicked for drink-driving at 2am after a ten-hour booze session.
    In 2019, the then-DC United player was arrested for being drunk in public when he set off a security door alarm at a US airport after a booze and sleeping pill mix left him “disoriented”.

    It is also the latest booze-fuelled scandal to hit Derby County after star players Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett, both 25, were convicted over a drink-drive smash in 2018.
    Rooney was just 16 when he burst on to the Premier League scene with his boyhood club Everton in 2002.
    He was capped for England the following year and starred at Euro 2004.
    That year he also signed for Manchester United, scoring a hat-trick on his debut.

    Rooney went on to become the club’s record goalscorer — as well as England’s.
    He was transferred back to Everton in 2017, before heading across the Atlantic to Washington, and then returning to England with Derby as a player-coach.
    In January, he became the Championship club’s full-time manager.

    It is also the latest booze-fuelled scandal to hit Derby County after star players Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett, both 25, were convicted over a drink-drive smash in 2018.
    Rooney has vowed not to quit as Derby manager, but demanded new signings before the season starts in two weeks.
    Speaking on Saturday, he warned it would be “impossible” to field a team with only nine registered senior players — two of them goalkeepers.
    He told Sky Sports News: “It’s other people which I can’t control who need to make bigger decisions that I do.”
    He added: “I need other people to do their job.”
    Rooney was just 16 when he burst on to the Premier League scene with his boyhood club Everton in 2002.
    He was capped for England the following year and starred at Euro 2004.
    That year he also signed for Manchester United, scoring a hat-trick on his debut.

    Rooney went on to become the club’s record goalscorer — as well as England’s.
    He was transferred back to Everton in 2017, before heading across the Atlantic to Washington, and then returning to England with Derby as a player-coach.
    In January, he became the Championship club’s full-time manager.

    David Beckham quizzed by Italian police about his children Cruz and Harper jet-skiing on holiday on Amalfi Coast

    The ex-England captain was moored off the Amalfi coast, Italy, when a police boat pulled up.
    Son Cruz, 16 — sporting dyed pink hair — had earlier been jet-skiing, with sister Harper, ten, joining him later.
    A witness said: “The kids are quite young. You are meant to be 18 to jet-ski in Italy.”
    And added: “Cruz and Harper had just started jet-skiing, and five minutes later the police boat arrived.
    “David was sun-bathing and he immediately left the deck and went downstairs to deal with it.
    “Both Cruz and Harper were wearing life-jackets and staying very near the yacht so it is hard to see what the problem was.
    “David seemed to call to them to come back to the yacht, and they anchored the jet-ski.
    “The questioning by the police went on for about 45 minutes although it all looked quite amicable.
    “At one point, they asked for documents which David showed them.
    “During the questioning the police recognised David and seemed to chat to him.
    “They even asked him for a selfie.
    “Then, at the end, David leant over for a friendly fist-bump and the police sped away.
    “The Guardia Finanza usually deal with drug and people smuggling so I am sure they had better things to do.”

    The drama on Friday came after the Beckham family – who had been isolating at their £6million Cotswolds home – jetted to Italy last week.
    David and wife Victoria, 45, were joined by son Brooklyn, 22 – accompanied by his US actress fiancée Nicola Peltz, 26 – and son Romeo, 18, as well as Cruz and Harper.
    It is thought Brooklyn and stunning Nicola have been eyeing wedding venues in Italy during the trip.

    The would-be sellers were held after we alerted police.
    The Euros final between England and Italy on July 11 was marred by violence as 2,500 ticketless yobs stormed the stadium.
    Cops have made at least 86 arrests and issued ten images of men they are hunting over the trouble.
