can level the series in adelaide with another good day. tonight's football results are coming up. our tonight's football results are coming up. 0urtop tonight's football results are coming up. our top story this evening — russia has been banned from taking part in the winter 0lympics from taking part in the winter olympics in south korea next february. the international olympic committee has ta ken february. the international olympic committee has taken action after the findings of its own investigation revealed the extent of state—sponsored systematic doping of russian athletes. the report clearly lays out an unprecedented attack on the integrity of the olympic games and sport. the report includes in particular the manipulation of the anti—doping laboratory at the
0lympic winter games in sochi 201a. the ioc executive board, after following due process, has issued proportional sanctions for this systemic manipulation while protecting clean athletes. let's get more on this from our sports correspondent alex capstick, who was at today's news conference in lausanne. this was an unprecedented decision. never has a country been banned from the olympics because of doping violations. this is an 0lympic superpower, a heavyweight of the movement. and they won't be at the movement. and they won't be at the olympic games, because the ioc decided there had been state—sponsored doping. it all boiled down in the end to a report written by a former swiss politician who was looking at whether, between 2000 and 2015, there had been a state led conspiracy. he said there
was manipulation of the anti—doping rules by russia, so they are banned. what does this mean for the individual athletes? some will be allowed to compete. there will have to pass a very strict vetting process which will be run by the ioc, not the individual sports federations. so when they get to pyeongchang, they will have to wear neutral vests. there will be no russian national anthem or russian flag flying for those who may win medals. the focus will now shift to moscow and whether vladimir putin will accept these terms and the decision. there has been talk of a boycott. at least one senior sports official from russia has boycott. at least one senior sports officialfrom russia has described the decision as insulting. the next few days will be very interesting. now to the football. it is the final round of matches in the champions league group stage this week. we have had eight games tonight. chelsea were already through but after drawing against atletico madrid, they finished as runners—up in theirgroup. madrid, they finished as runners—up in their group. manchester united w011 in their group. manchester united won there's after coming from behind
to beat cska moscow 2—1. that also equalled a club record. a0 matches ina row equalled a club record. a0 matches in a row at old trafford unbeaten. for the english teams tonight, the group stage battle was already all but over. just a point needed at old trafford for united to top their group. but they were almost undone bya group. but they were almost undone by a goal that perhaps shouldn't have been. 0n the stroke of half—time, cska moscow darting around the back of united, pulled back and bundled them, glancing off a player on the way. it was given as his goal, though seemingly offside and running away and didn't know much about it. according to the rules, the linesman was right and united dismissed any misplaced sense of injustice after the break with two goals in two minutes. first, romelu lu ka ku breaking two goals in two minutes. first, romelu lukaku breaking his goal—scoring drought, and then marcus rashford breaking his. points secure, and united sitting pretty for the new year. chelsea were
already through to the last 16 before a ball had even been kicked. time now to clinch their top spot. and they have the best of the chancesin and they have the best of the chances in the first half, alvaro morata just a few degrees away and za p pa costa morata just a few degrees away and zappacosta denied by the keeper. but atletico la id zappacosta denied by the keeper. but atletico laid siege to the chelsea goal at the start of the second and broke their way through. eden hazard snatched a frantic equaliser, but they ran out of time for the win. chelsea finish second in their group and may be in for a choppy ride when the champions league returns in february. the manchester united and chelsea are through to the knockout stage. celtic are already out of the reckoning, but they have parachuted into the europa league after finishing third behind psg and bayern munich. they still finished
above the belgians, though, because ofa above the belgians, though, because of a better head to head record. england's cricketers have every chance of levelling the ashes series tomorrow after their best day on tour so far. they bowled australia out for 138 in their second innings and with joe out for 138 in their second innings and withjoe root out for 138 in their second innings and with joe root at the crease, they will chase 178 more runs for victory with six wickets in hand on the final day. 0ur sports correspondent is in adelaide. it began a peaceful adelaide. it began a peaceful adelaide tuesday, but turned into the tensest ashes nailbiter was that england began with barely a flicker of hope. they needed early wickets and found them,jimmy of hope. they needed early wickets and found them, jimmy anderson taking five as his team—mates clung onto their catches. australia's lead was growing, though. england kept chipping away. if only they had bowled like this in the first innings. by the time australia were all out for 138, england's target was still a massive one, 350 four. they would need a record run chase
and as alastair cook is then passed the 50 mark, england dare to dream. but then a reality check. both went in quick succession and another soon followed, james vince wafting his wicket away, not what the occasion called for. but under floodlights and pressure, dafydd malan and joe root hang in there. australia kept appealing. india kept surviving, just. it was pure sporting theatre. root reached a gutsy half—century as the pair rekindled england's hopes, but ten minutes from the toes, a final twist. mallan gone. australia are still favourites, but england are still favourites, but england are 178 runs from something special. this has been some fight back from england. barely 2a hours ago, they looked beaten, the ashes all but gone. and yet they still have a chance of a remarkable win. we are delighted to be in this position to have any chance of winning the game, which we didn't think we would have
after the first couple of days. it's good for us. 0bviously, after the first couple of days. it's good for us. obviously, there is a huge amount of work left for us in this game if we are to have any chance of winning it. but we are in with a chance, which is all we could ask for after the first two days. so an enthralling finale awaits. from the brink of defeat, a chance of one of cricket's greatest victories. ball by ball commentary is on bbc radio test match special and the bbc sport website. at 3.30, the final day gets under way. ronnie 0'sullivan is due to the last 16 of snookehs 0'sullivan is due to the last 16 of snooker‘s uk championship. he thrashed michael white 6—1. he is playing on his a2nd birthday as well. he finished the match with a final break of 65 to take him closer to matching steve davis' record of six uk titles. the third round winners today where john six uk titles. the third round winners today wherejohn higgins and shaun murphy.
that's all for this sportsday, on a day that saw russia banned from the winter olympics next year for systematic doping. coming up next, it's the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are former pensions minister baroness ros altmann and the writer and broadcaster mihir bose. tomorrow's front pages...starting with... the guardian leads with a story of pressure growing on theresa may amid what it describes as a "jolt" to brexit talks. the telegraph claims that mi5 foiled an alleged plot
to assassinate the prime minister in downing street. that story also makes the sun's front page. the mirror also leads with what it describes as a "terror plot to kill theresa may". the times leads with a story on the row between philip hammond and the ministry of defence, claiming the chancellor has been banned from using raf aircraft. the metro leads with next year's rise in railfares, saying passengers are being "bled dry". the i notes that the increase in rail prices will be the biggest in five years. the ft reports that james murdoch could be the new boss of disney if disney buys 21st century fox from the murdoch—controlled group of companies. good to have you both here. let's begin with the telegraph. rose, that iconic picture staring out at us.
christine keeler in that pose on that chair, the chair which is now in the v&a, it was so iconic. with a note saying christine keeler sat here? i must look at what it does say. this is a reminder of one of the bigger sex scandals of the last century. and it brought down the macmillan government. it certainly brought down ministers. profumo, for lying. was married. he had an affair of apparently, christine keeler was also having an affair with a russian attache. so have the makings of a real scandal. mihir bose, i am not being impolite but you just about remember the profumo affair?|j being impolite but you just about remember the profumo affair? ijust about remember reading political stories for the first time. what is interesting looking back to from our
zist interesting looking back to from our 21st century scandals is that when harold wilson made his attack on the macmillan government, he said it is not about the sex, it is because christine keeler has shared secrets with the soviet intelligence officer with the soviet intelligence officer with whom she shared a bed. the point was, the sex was not talked about. now we are in a different world and a better world in the sense that this is much more open, but then, the question was, is the country's intelligence being compromised by the same woman being in bed with two different men? and the picture captures something of the picture captures something of the period, doesn't it, with the ambiguity of how women were regarded then. she looks like a sophisticated ingenue, when she was actually a young home counties girl. she is remembered as being quite naive and caught up in all of this political shenanigans and not really up to all
