6:33 pm
we'll track the progress of the british sprinters in doha where zarnell hughes makes it through to tonight's 100 metre final. and we tell you how annamiek van vlueten produced one of the most astonishing solo rides to win gold at the road world championships in yorkshire. where else to start than injapan and the result of the rugby world cup so far and one of the biggest upsets in the tournament's history. hosts japan stunned ireland. ireland had never lost a world cup match to a team outside the traditional tier one nations before today. they led at half time. but an inspired performance from the hosts stunned the irish and ignited the tournament. from shizuoka, here's andy swiss. cheering. yeah! japan, we win! it couldn't happen again, could it?
6:34 pm
a sea of red and white flowed to shizuoka as japan fans hoped for another world cup miracle. at the last tournament they beat south africa and now they had ireland in their sights. but at first it seemed there would be no repeat. garry ringrose with the first of two early tries to put ireland in control. inspired by theirfans, though, the hosts clawed their way back. three penalties closed the gap to 12—9 at the break. and after it, the moment that sent the decibel level to new dizzying heights. kenki fukuoka the hero. japan in dreamland as the stadium sensed something very special indeed. and they were not to be disappointed as after another japan penalty, the final whistle sparked scenes ofjubilation. ireland, who began the tournament as world number ones, had been humbled, and the celebrations had only just started. 0utside, they continued into the evening. for a nation that is proving such popular hosts, what a night to remember. exciting, awesome.
6:35 pm
yes, the best i have ever seen in my life. well done, the japanese. they played very well. what an unforgettable night for the japanese fans. at their very own world cup they have done it once again, with another spectacular upset. andy swiss, bbc news, shizuoka. and for the team, the fans and for by and for the team, the fans and for rugby union, a momentous win. japan have lit up at their world cup party. andy swiss, bbc news, shizuoka. so it's a result that has blown pool a wide open. it'll give confidence to scotland who will now really believe they can make the quarter finals. for a shell—shocked irish — they knew it wouldn't be an easy match against japan. they just couldn't do anything about it when you how tough it was going to be. anyone that was utterly shocked has not seen how good they are. we felt we were really prepared to but give credit to that team, they played really well.
6:36 pm
we made a few mistakes and unforced errors. i thinkjapan played really well and they post a lot of questions to us and unfortunately we cannot come up with the right answers. a tough defeat for us to take with the strength of the team will be how they respond and rebound from this. a tough defeat for us to take with the strength of the team will be how they respond and rebound from this. a six—day turnaround into this game was a little bit tough and we have got a five day turnaround now the russian game on tuesday. so another challenge for us. you might rememberfour years ago, japan upsetting south africa for their biggest world cup win. their head coach jamie joseph said his ‘brave blossoms' had been preparing for this challenge for the last three years. what we witnessed tonight, which is nearly 50,000 people and 40 of which in red jerseys, you feel really
6:37 pm
proud as a coach and as a rugby team, certainly did not want to let down the country. these things last week against russia, put us a bit of pressure, really. but tonight helped us. so this is what it's done to pool a. japan top with two wins from two. what may prove pivotal is a losing bonus point for ireland. scotland face samoa on monday and will likely now have to beat japan if they want to progress to the last eight. elsewhere, south africa recorded the biggest win of the tournament so far... they beat namibia 57—3 in toyota. the springboks scored in nine tries with schalk brits breaking through for the last. earlier in england's group, argentina picked up a bonus point as they beat tonga 28—12. all their four tries came in the first half withjulian montoya scoring three. argentina are now second in pool c, behind england, who they play next saturday in tokyo. still to come on sportsday.
6:38 pm
we hear from the wales camp ahead of tomorrow's heavyweight clash against australia. and another weekend, and another pole position for charles leclerc. we'll give you the details from qualifying for the russian grand prix. let's turn our attention to football now. manchester city are at everton in the late kick off. currently 1—1 but everybody is still chasing liverpool who are still yet to drop a point in the premier league this season. newly promoted sheffield united made life tough for the european champions but a goalkeeping gaffe was enough to give liverpool the win and move eight points clear at the top of the table. rhia chohan reports the latest title challenge has been near followed flawless. they visited here with six wins out of six. enough to put a grin on any manager
6:39 pm
public face. but sheffield united we re public face. but sheffield united were not going to because of and the report if real chance it was an opportunity missed. liveable off and looked out of the comfort zone and united commit to close for comfort. the huge goalkeeping air which eventually turned the game around. head deliverable goal which squirmed agonisingly over the line. a frustrating moment for dean henderson who otherwise held it together. mo has not scored away from home this season it was to happen today either. leon clark almost six got a point for united but it was jurgen almost six got a point for united but it wasjurgen klopp's side who took their hardest earned three points this season. it was never easy today. we needed everybody for defending and nearly everybody for attacking and we scored a lucky goal. we know that. but the boys worked so hard for it
6:40 pm
and you cannot luck, and that's what they did today. united would have earned luck as well but it doesn't happen every day. if they keep playing like this will be a really tough place to hold next season. (ben)so liverpool eight points clear for maybe another 30 minutes or so at least. austin halewood has been looking at the three o'clock kick offs for us — and you've got another one for the goalkeeping blooper reel at the tottenham hotspur stadium. that's right ben a horror goal adding to a horror week for spurs. beaten by league two side colchester in the league cup on tuesday you might remember but this 2—1 win over southhampton will‘ve come as a huge relief to their fans. the result they'll take with open arms but the performance wasn't pretty. spurs had a really ropey start but the nerves were settled by an opening goalfrom record signing tanguy ndombele. but then the problems started once
6:41 pm
again with serge aurier sent off in the first half for two yellow cards within a minute of each other. and it got worse. an absolute howler of a goalkeeping errorfrom hugo lloris gifted southampton a goal. you'll have to see it for yourselves on match of the day to beleive it. but as he so often is, harry kane was the saviour for tottenham. he scored just before the break to give them the lead and they never gave it up. for large parts of the second half, they were second best. they needed lloris to redeem himself and he did with some spectacular saves, so he'll be a relieved man tonight. as will spurs boss mauricio pochettino. his side move up to fourth. i feel so happy for the ifeel so happy for the players i feel so happy for the players and for the fans and of course the fans deserve a victory like this today. we needed it to work a lot and of
6:42 pm
course it shows that our spirit is back to the team and that's the way that we need it to work and that is what we respect. hampered by that transfer embargo in the summer, chelsea have had a bit of a shakey start but a first home win for them today at samford bridge. they deservedly beat brighton 2—0 this afternoon. after plenty of chances they finally scored in the second half from the spot. jorginho with the penalty you might remember that ross barkley took — and missed — a penalty instead ofjorginho in the champions league against valencia a couple of weeks ago. but there was no mistake from jorginho this time. and willian made it two, not long after, with chelsea's second. now that win made chelsea's record against brighton nine wins from nine — that's a new football league and premier league record — no team has had such a bad record against another team before —
6:43 pm
but for manager frank lampard he'll just be delighted to have that first home win in the league. we needed it. we have not had a 90 minute game here we have controlled enough to get a win and today we controlled and not from start to finish. number goals and goals in the second half. clean she is what we have been waiting for. elsewhere, west ham continued their brilliant start to the season at bournemouth. they came from behind to draw — their unbeaten in six now in the premier league. they were thrashed by oxford 4—0 in the league cup this week but there was no hangover for the hammers, andriy yarmolenko scoring early on. bournemouth then equalised throuthosh king before an injury to goalkeeper lukasz fabianski meant this man came on — roberto — for his first league match for 17 months. so there was no surprise that there might have been a bit of rust on the gloves,
6:44 pm
callum wilson scoring not long after — his fifth goal in his last four league matches. now he could have made it 3—1, but he missed a golden opportunity. and aaron cresswell made him pay. he scored the equaliser for west ham, which had lifted them up to third in the table, just a point behind manchester city in third. the big game we told you about at the moment. everton against manchester city. could have a huge impact at the table. if it stays that way they could have a really big effects tonight. as for the rest of the three o'clock kick—offs. .. burnley came from behind twice to draw 2—2 at aston villa. crystal palace beat norwich 2—0. and watford stay rooted
6:45 pm
to the bottom of the table, without a win, after they lost 2—0 at wolves. but all eyes on manchester city now, lizzie, as it stands they're seven points behind livepool in the table. if it stays that way tonight then they will be seven points behind liverpool. 52 minutes behind. david ferguson scorched his first goalfor the club david ferguson scorched his first goal for the club and then perera put ina goal for the club and then perera put in a free kick at the 84th minute. in an eventful week off the field, derby county moved up to 14th by beating birmingham 3—2. garry monk enjoyed a winning return to middlesbrough as his sheffield wednesday side thrashed boro 4—1 at the riverside. four score draws in the division — including at the liberty stadium where swansea missed the chance to return to the top as reading scored a 90th minute equaliser. i—i it finished there.
6:46 pm
scottish premiership leaders celtic dropped points for the first time this season — held to a 1—1 draw at hibernian. hibs made a great start — going ahead in the eighth minute through a kristoffer ajer own goal but celtic‘s equaliser caused fury in the hibs dug out. ryan christie scoring while there was confusion over a foul. hibs' manager paul heckingbottom kicked a water bottle in frustration which hit the assistant referee. he was given a red card and sent to the stands. that result has allowed second placed rangers to close the gap on celtic to just a point because they thrashed aberdeen five nil — james tavernier converting two penalties. stjohnstone stay bottom after losing to motherwell. hamilton beat livingston whilst the games between kilmarnock and ross county and st mirren and hearts finished goalless manchester united won their first game in the women's super league. beating liverpool 2—nil. in their first season at this level, teenager lauren james' strike and a katie zelem penalty earned united their first win in front
6:47 pm
of nearly 3,000 fans. liverpool are bottom, without a win this season. from a dreary day in the uk to the heat and humidity of doha and the world athletics championships. it's day two of competition with the men's 100 metre final coming up in a couple of hours. ade adedoyin is in the khalifa stadium and ade — starting with the 100 semi finals. mixed fortunes for the three brits. 0nly hughes, the european champion was able to progress in the final. he finished second after the south african, will champion. of all the qualifiers if s is bent in the world was the fastest and has been throughout the championship. he ran 9.88 and looked like he wasjogging from 30 metres out. the defending champion also through but did impress, he finished third had to go
6:48 pm
through the fastest qualifier. he has been there and done it for so many years and way back into as of four and two of them drawn side by side before my money christian is the man to beat. tipped by many to pick up the metals, how does she look in the heat? look very co mforta ble look in the heat? look very comfortable and controlled it from about 30 metres out. she said she has grown in confidence by competing with some of the big names on the circuit. she said she is no longer just happy to be there and she is ready to compete. but the most impressive though was fraser. former libya champion and i kid you not she looked like she wasjogging from 70 metres out. i set does that mean you can write about 10.6? she said i'm happy to be here. she's going to be
6:49 pm
very, very tough to beat. but smith looks very good. and what are conditions like then? nearly half the field dropped out because it was so hot and humid it. we got more long distance events outside that night the air—conditioned stadium that you are in. how are you and the athletes finding it? well i'm in the stadium here that has an air—conditioned system that cools the temperature to about 22 or 23 degrees. it's really, really nice conditions for sprinting. degrees. it's really, really nice conditions forsprinting. 0utside degrees. it's really, really nice conditions for sprinting. outside of the stadium, however it's about this. over a third of them have completed the course at its core to be very challenging. conditions are good for that and look out for hassan of the netherlands. she broke the mile record this is in a very good form. looking to win her first
6:50 pm
global title. going head—to—head with the reigning world champion but conditions here much cooler than they are outside. thank you very much forjoining us. since formula one returned from its summer break, one man has been leading the way and yet again charles leclerc set the pace in qualifying for the russian grand prix. it's his fourth pole in a row but championship leader lewis hamilton is still in prime position to try to spoil the ferrari party in sochi. nick parrott has more. if you're missing out on victory last weekend, ferreri's charl leclerc is smiling again, and no wonderfirst driver to leclerc is smiling again, and no wonder first driver to claim four consecutive pole positions since lewis hamilton. track mercedes have dominated running every grand prix since 2014 but now their grip on formula 1 is loosening. ferreri told the time sheets in every session of qualifying and in the final one knuckle one
6:51 pm
post of the time to beat. the best of on course to join his team—mates until hamilton picked him butjust two hundredths of a second. both were left trailing in the wake by almost half a second. that's a massive margin when it comes to formula 1. hamilton will try to take confidence in the fact that he has won here three times despite only starting from the pole once but it's clear for all to see it would take something special or misfortune to deny charl leclerc his third win of the season. it was double dutch in the women's road race at the road cycling world championships in yorkshire with annamiek van vleuten producing a stunning 100 kilometre solo effort to take gold ahead of compatriot ana van der breggan there was no fairy tale home—coming for great britain and yorkshire's — lizzie deignan who was aiming to reclaim the title she won back in 2015.
6:52 pm
she tried in vein to reel in the leaders and finished well behind in the peleton. patrick gearey has more. the crowd here did not get the results they wanted. no metalfor the home favourite, but that's was like a 93 mile rides down memory lane for her. this is the area she grew up in with these of the streets where she first rode a bike on an almost around every corner was a special place for her. she entered her home town was allowed to go to the front of the field and a good view of the crowd including her nan at the side of the road. shelley gave birth to a year ago but with no leading pack as the race went up but that is when van vleuten, the dutch writer attacked with an incredible surge of energy with 65 miles is still to go, she opened up a lead that she never let slip of a really remarkable individual performance from the dutch time trial specialist. the rest of the field going for second and third and unfortunately did not happen.
6:53 pm
she slipped back into the final stages of the race. a race to remember and let's hear from the home favourite speaking after the finish. so phenomenal and so grateful for the opportunity. thank you to everyone that came out and supported because they made the event what it was and it will be a race that i will never forget. the focus tomorrow switches to the men's race and a chance to see thomas in action. he pulled out of the time trial earlier in the week saying it was an emotionally and very mentally tiring year for him but he will be involved in the men's road race. not a british winner in that one since 2011 but the weather forecast contrasted today is very bad. heavy rain expected in your church through most of the day up so it could be one for thrills and spills. after the world number ones ireland suffered that shock defeat to japan today, the six nations and grand slam
6:54 pm
champions will be aiming to cause their own upset tomorrow. wales face australia in what many expect will be the match to decide who'll top pool d. australia have the pedigree and form this year but wales did win their last encounter last november. from tokyo, here's our correspondent katie gornall in the shadow of tokyo's skyline, whales are standing tall. a convincing win in their opening game has got them up and running on this world cup. the intensity is set to rise, the heavyweight clash with australia is just around the corner. this is the biggest test we have in front of us and we won't shy away from that and we trained well if you quys from that and we trained well if you guys frustrated with selection which isa guys frustrated with selection which is a good thing that breeds competitiveness within the squad and a bit of red stuff flowing yesterday. and it was for the betterment of the team. blood sweat
6:55 pm
and tears is nothing out of the ordinary for and tears is nothing out of the ordinaryfor him. and tears is nothing out of the ordinary for him. become his country's most caps players and he's pa rt country's most caps players and he's part of the unchanged side for their victory over georgia as wells are faced with the team that went on the attack. really impressive of their first—half win over georgia with a will have to perform for 80 minutes. they have won 13 of the last 14 tests a nd they have won 13 of the last 14 tests and always seem to raise their game in the world cup. they must come through bruising encounter against fiji and while many have the two times champions as underdogs when former world cup winner expects them to rise to the challenge. they look really, really fit, like running fitness and not kicking the ball too much. maybe have to adjust that during the tournament and having the ability to hang onto the ball creates a lot of pressure. both teams bring the best out of each other and i think it's going to be
6:56 pm

6:58 pm
slides away. the squeezing together for some eastern parts of england and particularly always of northwest winds during the evening in fact forget the gusts of 40 or 50 and maybe 60 mph for some of the ease coasts. combine that with high tides and there could be some coastal flooding. but that load does slide off into the near continent and we briefly see a little ridge of high pressure. a quieter window of weather to start monday morning, they could bring mist and fog patches here and there is spells of sunshine. it binds me here we go again. another area of low pressure swing its weight in outbreaks of rain pushing north across england and wales. wales could have some localised flooding by the stage and all the while across from the areas particularly scotland it will be turning significantly cooler. 0n tuesday we will see that low sliding its way across the southern half of the uk bringing outbreaks of rain
