carpet for tonight's bafta television awards. michael mcintyre has won for best entertainment performance, and the bbc show happy valley has won best drama. hello and welcome to sportsday, i'm hugh woozencroft. the main headlines this evening... commiserations for hull city as they relegated from the premier league — but celebrations for crystal palace who are staying up! fond farewells at spurs as tottenham say goodbye to white hart lane after 118 years. and congratulations for lewis hamilton as he takes the victory at the spanish grand prix. it was a day of contrast‘s at selhurst park —
7:32 pm
a 4—0 defeat for hull city confirmed their relegation from the premier league, but there were celebrations for crystal palace as the win meant they are safe in the top flight for next season. for hull though it's real disappointment and a case of what might have been as nick parrott reports. had the season started when marco silva took charge charge of hull city, they would have been tenth heading into their match with crystal palace. it made them almost unbeatable at home but could not improve their awfulform on the road... many who travel to selhurst park were resigned to their fate and they knew it would not be their day as early as the third minute. on loan defender andrea ranocchia billed this match as the equivalent of a champions league final. but this error that led to wilfried zaha's goal was more akin to what you would see on a park on a sunday morning.
7:33 pm
the tigers did not manage a single shot on target while crystal palace scored all four of theirs — christian benteke given all the space he needed to make it 2—0. if referee martin atkinson missed this, he was on the ball in the second half... no dispute over crystal palace‘s spot kick. the home sides were not content to leave it there either. patrick van aanholt struck in the final minutes so the eagles could soar to safety in style while condemning hull to the championship... nick parrott, bbc news. sad for our fans, for our boys, for the club. it is not a good moment. now is the moment the club gives the next step. it's hard to understand why this happened, with many goals during the season. today we come here to play one final. we start in a bad way.
7:34 pm
we give for them what they want for the match. there's no doubt the new players arriving injanuary made a massive effort and a massive difference as well. that lifted all the other players here. for me, it's the hardest one i've done because of the fixtures that we had to face going into the last eight or nine games. to come out of those fixtures with a win against chelsea away, liverpool away, and arsenal at home. if you see what arsenal have done now since that victory, it shows you how big a task it was for us. and in the end we've done it with a game to go, i'm glad to say. so relief for sam allardyce‘s palace side but disappointment for hull and their fans, who had mixed emotions after the game. it was lost at the beginning of the
7:35 pm
season it was lost at the beginning of the season unfortunately. if you do not invest in the side and don't have the best players, they were flagging and playing the same old stuff. u nfortu nately, and playing the same old stuff. unfortunately, no initiative. and playing the same old stuff. unfortunately, no initiativem and playing the same old stuff. unfortunately, no initiative. if we hold marco silva we might do something next year otherwise we will be another portsmouth. keeping marco silva is unlikely. we will rebuild. we've done it before, we will do it again! so that result means palace avoid relegation as do swansea city as well. their players celebrated keeping their place in the top flight next season, defender angel rangel posted this on social media. at the start of the year the swans were bottom of the table and four points from safety. but three wins from their last four games has helped them stay up. at the other end of the table, liverpool took a step closer to guaranteeing champions league football next season with a 4—0 thrashing of west ham. the win movesjurgen klopp's side up to third. a win from their final game against middlesbrough
7:36 pm
will see them secure a place in europe's elite competition, as maz farookhi reports. even from up here, the task for liverpool was crystal clear. anything less than a win and champions league qualification was out of their hands. the problem is, they haven't enjoyed visits to west ham in recent years. but then those were at their old ground. at the london stadium, philippe coutinho was able to slice through the hammers defence, setting up daniel sturridge for his first goal since the beginning of the year. the home side had plenty of chances of their own in the first half but failed to make them count. it was more difficult for andre ayew not to score here but inexplicably, he only hit the post twice. after creating a goal, it was time for philippe coutinho to take centre stage. this run doubling the liverpool lead, before adding another minutes later. rather than celebration, commiseration for west ham. in the goal build—up there was a clear handball noticed by everyone, it seems, but the referee. west ham pause for thought
7:37 pm
for what might have been. the visitors didn't. origi added a fourth. the scoreline in the end was emphatic. after the result yesterday, all the pressure had been on jurgen klopp's men. champions league football was now in touching distance... daniel sturridge, i have to say, had no rhythm. he is really training out, not very long, but what a clear he is. it's important for us today, all of these performance with 50 or 60% of chances. i think 2—0 was a knock for west ham. and we kept on going. it's good football, then. we could have scored more. we started more, we could have had some good chances. we should have equalised. the third goal was very
7:38 pm
straight, a penalty for us, or maybe he should have stopped the game, all of that. there were those moments that went against us but no mistake, they were the better team. over 90 minutes, a much better team. they were the better team. over 90 minutes, a much betterteam. not happy with the performance that we put into night. after 118 years at white hart lane, tottenham hotspur said goodbye with a 2—1victory over manchester united. having missed out on the title, spurs erased that disappointment by going a season unbeaten at home, for the first time in 52 years. adam wild has more. after 118 years, this was tottenham fa ns after 118 years, this was tottenham fans last lingering look of the lane, capturing final memories of this famous old ground. while spurs face a bright future, this was a day to honour the club's past. they
7:39 pm
could have been no more perfect way to start such a party then an early goal. it came from victor wanyama on an afternoon with already plenty to celebrate, this was just one more reason. while the result was perhaps secondary to the occasion, the chance of victory over manchester united is always incentive enough. spurs were an lucky not to have gone further ahead. before the break dele alli was one of many to get close. ona day alli was one of many to get close. on a day when the club remembers its greatest heroes, harry kane reminded fa ns greatest heroes, harry kane reminded fans that he may one day he counted among them. the final spurs goal at white hart lane but not the final goal... that went to wayne rooney. with his united future uncertain, fittingly for the occasion perhaps, a farewell of sorts from him as well. spurs hang on for a whole league season unbeaten at the lane. now, a club with plenty to look forward to. adam wild, bbc news.
7:40 pm
at the same time, we come to the new stadium, wanting to move on. i think we will be very happy playing at the new white hart lane you mention celebrations, will you take anything from the ground as a momentum? we will see what we can take from white hart lane and keep! keeping our house! well, jose mourinho made eight changes to his side. after reaching the europa league final on thursday night and with a number of injuries to his side, he reiterated the match in ten days' time is his priority. positive performance, with a team thatis positive performance, with a team that is not a team, but a group of players that you try and put in place, to play some matches where we have pride to play for and responsibilities in relation to the
7:41 pm
results. but matches we don't want to play. we've only got one match today and that is not in the premier league. huddersfield drew 0—0 with sheffield wednesday in the first leg of their championship play off semifinal at thejohn smith's stadium. a dull first half provided few opportunities to score with huddersfield's izzy brown let down by his powers of balance. wednesday spent most of the second half defending but huddersfield were unable to make the breakthrough. the second leg is at hillsborough on wednesday. forest green rovers have been promoted to the efl for the first time in their history after a 3—1 win over tranmere rovers in the national league play—off final at wembley. with half time approaching the sides were drawing 1—1 before christian doidge helped forest green edge in front. kaiyne woolery had scored their opener and his second made it 3—1 before the interval could come. neither side managed to add to that and after missing out last season, forest green have now secured a place in league two. lewis hamilton has moved to within six points of championship leader sebastian vettel after winning the
7:42 pm
spanish grand prix. it's hamilton's second race win of the season. tom clarkson was in barcelona for us. this is the battle that formula 1 has been wanting. two of the best drivers in the world with seven world championships between them, racing wheel to wheel and even touching wheels on the racetrack. as you can imagine, victory in the spanish grand prix was one that lewis hamilton relish... formula 1 price on the spectacular. in barcelona, a battle for the championship is taking place. over lewis hamilton's shoulder, sebastian vettel was in pursuit. the german set the pace so far this season. he too, and early charge got his ferrari in front. while his start was perfect his team—mate could not dodge the traffic. kimi raikkonen's
7:43 pm
the briton's opportunity came with the briton's opportunity came with the safety car. with the race held up, hamilton took a pit stop so when sebastian vettel emerged, he had company. it was the spectacle they hoped for. in this sport, brilliance occurs through bravery. the moment came with a lunch for the front. points for pole position urging him to the top, but in a battle for the title, this victory means so much more. so, hamilton understandably was very satisfied with his day of work. the gap between him and sebastian vettel, leading the world championship, down to six points. now we head to the monaco grand prix. the jewel now we head to the monaco grand prix. thejewel in now we head to the monaco grand prix. the jewel in the now we head to the monaco grand prix. thejewel in the formula now we head to the monaco grand prix. the jewel in the formula 1 crown. hamilton and sebastian vettel have both won there before. who is it going to be this time? warrington are through to the quarterfinals of rugby league's challenge cup after a hard—fought 34—20 victory over local rivals widnes.
7:44 pm
a hat trick from kevin brown against his former club kept warrington ahead for much of the game before late trys, including this one from chris hill, made the game safe in the closing minutes. elsewhere in the challenge cup, there were no surprises as leeds rhinos thrashed championship side barrow 72—10 and swinton lions were beaten 112—12 by wigan warriors. and in the last half hour, the draw for the quarter finals has been made. the pick of the ties sees warrington host wigan. featherstone, who will be playing in their first quarter final for 20 years, have been rewarded with a tie away at leeds. salford host wakefield, while holders hull take on castleford. hopes of a first british winner of the giro d'italia are effectively over after a crash on today's ninth stage. team sky's geraint thomas and orica—scott‘s adam yates
