Boris Johnson's pledge to revive his referendum campaign idea to introduce an Australian-style points-based system for migrants is widely reported - and makes the main story for the Telegraph.

It says foreigners who want to work in Britain will have to be able to speak English and must have a job before they arrive if he becomes prime minister.

"Boris talks tough on migrants" is the Mail's headline. According to the Times, Mr Johnson believes the system has proved effective, is supported by the public in Australia and has generated a lot of interest in Britain.

The Financial Times says Theresa May's decade-long legacy of restrictions on students, workers and family migrants - forged at the Home Office and Downing Street - is being dismantled before she has left office.

A promise by Mr Johnson's Tory leadership rival, Jeremy Hunt, to consider preserving free TV licences for all over-75s is the lead for the Express and the Mirror.

Mr Hunt tells the Express the Conservatives should stick to their 2017 election manifesto commitment to keep the free licences.

The Mirror says he told LBC radio: "I'm not comfortable with the way things have ended up."

The Times leads with the prediction by scientists that cervical cancer could eventually be eliminated in Britain because the HPV vaccine has been so successful.

According to the paper, models based on Australia - where vaccine uptake is similar to the UK - show that the cancer could be eliminated within decades.

A Public Health England official tells the paper: "There will be a time in the future that we will start to see very, very low rates of cervical cancer, particularly as long as vaccination and screening continues to remain as successful as it is at the moment."

Wednesday's warning by the leaders of social care departments in England that the system is failing elderly and disabled people makes the lead for the Guardian.

The paper says the frank message reflects deep frustration at the government's repeated neglect of promises to come up with a way to pay for growing adult social care needs.

A funding green paper - promised more than 18 months ago - has been postponed six times, it adds.

With England playing Norway in the quarter finals of the Women's World Cup this evening, the papers report that a record TV audience is expected to tune in, as women's football goes mainstream and prejudices are shattered.

The Guardian says a peak audience of 6.9 million watched England's match against Cameroon at the weekend, and France, Brazil and Italy have also been enjoying record-breaking TV figures in recent days.

The Mirror reports that the Glastonbury Festival is showing the game on big screens after a request by England's midfielder, Georgia Stanway. She had tweeted the organisers to say her brother would be at the festival - and didn't want to miss the game.
