    US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet in Helsinki on Monday. Trump has said he has "low expectations" for the meeting, which comes after 12 Russians were indicted for alleged hacking during the 2016 US elections. Mr Trump said he would raise this issue with Mr Putin at the summit and "maybe some good" would come of it. We hear from Atlantic Council Senior Fellow Dr. Ariel Cohen on what else Trump might bring up at the meeting, and Lilit Gevorgyan, Senior Economist at IHS Markit, gives us her take on what Putin may be after. Also in the show, the Farnborough Airshow kicks off this week. For aerospace companies in Britain, the event is a vital shop window event, but for many the dominant conversation points will be Brexit, defence and short-haul airplanes. The BBC's Theo Leggett has been given a preview, and will tell us what he saw. And finally, the World Cup may be over, but are you still struggling to get that "it's coming home" song out of your head? That's probably why the song just smashed an all-time music chart record. The Financial Times' Pop Critic Ludo Hunter-Tilney joins to explain the significance of "Three Lions".
