The Financial Times leads with a report that the UK is set to give the Chinese telecoms giant, Huawei, the go-ahead to build Britain's 5G network, despite pressure from Washington not to do so.

But the paper understands that the company will be given only a restricted role. It says ministers are looking to impose a cap on the market share Huawei can take in the UK in an attempt to bring other suppliers in and avoid over-reliance on the company.

The Daily Telegraph leads with US warnings that Britain's sovereignty will be at risk if it allows Huawei access to its 5G network.

The paper says President Trump is expected to make a public intervention in the coming days.

For its main story, The Guardian says experts are warning that more than 100,000 people around the world may already be infected with the coronavirus.

Professor Neil Ferguson - a public health expert at Imperial College London - also tells the paper that sooner or later, someone in the UK will be diagnosed because of the very large numbers of Chinese tourists currently in Europe.

The Daily Mirror's headline on the story predicts that the virus will be "here in a few days".

The Daily Mail quotes a Department of Health source as saying the government's "working assumption" is that it will be here this week.

The Sun splashes on an interview with the Duchess of Sussex's father, confirming that he will give evidence against her in a legal case with a newspaper over its publication of a letter she wrote to him.

Thomas Markle tells the paper: "It would be the worst place to have to meet her and Harry, but it might come down to that because I will certainly testify about the things that have been said about me - the lies".

He adds that "when me and Meghan end up in a courtroom together, it will be quite stunning for everybody".

The Los Angeles Times has extensive coverage of the death of the basketball star, Kobe Bryant.

Among the many tributes, one writer says his death has cut a huge hole out of the city's heart - and the wound is breathtaking.

He reflects on the player's impact on America as one who - for many - started as a childhood hero and went on to become an adult icon.

You watched him grow up, and this city's relentless approach to sports grew with him - and soon, even with all of his off-court failings, many people felt they carried a little piece of him, the writer goes on.

"How can Kobe Bryant be gone? His legend wasn't supposed to end this way", is the headline.

Finally, the Sun reports that the England cricket fan who's been the Barmy Army's trumpeter for the last 16 years, is retiring - as the team march towards victory in the Test against South Africa.

The paper says Billy Cooper - a classically trained musician - has lifted the team and supporters with his tunes at 52 overseas Tests.

The Daily Telegraph says that for many fans, watching cricket won't be the same without him - but it will certainly be quieter.

The Sun has an interview with the British teenager convicted of lying about being gang-raped by Israeli youths in Cyprus.

"They were like a pack of wolves", she tells the paper.

Twelve men were arrested in connection with the allegations, but were freed after the woman retracted her claims.

However, she says she was forced to change her account under pressure from Cypriot police, and is appealing against her conviction.

The Spectator website says Britain's departure from the EU at the end of the week will be a momentous, historic event.

But - it adds - it's not clear whether the day will be dominated by the celebrations of the people who campaigned to get the country out - or the regrets and recriminations of those who tried to stop it happening.

The Daily Mail reports that leading Remainers have vowed not to use the new 50 pence commemorative coin.

Tony Blair's former spin doctor, Alastair Campbell, tells the Daily Telegraph he will ask shopkeepers for "two 20p pieces and a 10p" instead of the 50p coin.

There are many reflections on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

The Guardian says today's ceremony carries a special poignancy because of the diminishing number of survivors.

But it warns that - in a period of resurgent nationalism and xenophobia - the need to remember and retain the lessons of the Holocaust grows rather than diminishes.

For the Times, the anniversary is a reminder to the world to redouble its efforts to ensure that what happened is never forgotten.

Only by confronting history - it says - can we hope not to repeat it.
