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? 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. outside, they continued into the evening. for a nation that is proving such popular hosts, what a night to remember. exciting, awesome. 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. 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 ww knew 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. 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. 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. 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. manchester city have just beaten everton 3—1 but liverpool remain five points clear at the top of the premier league after they won at the newly promoted sheffield united by 1—0. it was not a day goalkeeper dean henderson will look back on with too much fondness though. his howler gifted the league leaders all three points as rhia chohan explains 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 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.
it was a huge goalkeeping error which eventually turned the game around. a liverpool goal which squirmed agonisingly over the line. a frustrating moment for dean henderson who otherwise held it together. it was not their most emphatic performance. mo has not scored away from home this season it was not to happen today either. leon clark 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 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. and that errorfrom henderson may not be the worst blunder of the day believe it or not. austin halewood has had his eye across the 3pm kick offs — starting 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 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. ifeel 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 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 they'll be relieved to tick off a first home win. they deservedly beat brighton 2—0 at stamford bridge. 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 — 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. good for the feeling and good for the confidence of everyone. and we move on. 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, 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 four points behind manchester city in second. as for the rest of the 3pm kick—offs — burnley came from behind twice to draw 2—2 at aston villa. crystal palace beat norwich 2—0. and watford stay rooted to the bottom of the table, still without a win,
after they lost 2—0 at wolves. and confirmation once again of manchester city's win, lizzie — how vital that was for them to keep up with liverpool. the gap was eight this afternoon, it's back to five again now. their last premier league game and it is something they are not used to. to feed. they efficient everton average inside was a big approve. walcott proved himself ready to start his first game of the season, but ugly blow to the headman he lasted just 50 seconds. it took ten minutes before the first real chance that it was one that he really should've taken. he could not have made it any easier for gabriel. it just like in the defeat since you are making defences in states he pushed one but it was dominic but the final touch. everton nearly took the final touch. everton nearly took the lead but everton stood strong.
when sterling shotjust across the line it was three, but the game had been much closer. west brom are top of the championship after a 2—0 win at qpr. the gap with eight points deliverable this afternoon but now to five. it was a difficult prediction. west brom are top of the championship after a 2—0 win at qpr. they remain the only unbeaten team in the division. 18—year—old full—back nathan ferguson scored his first goal for the club and then matheus pereira put in a free—kick in 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. 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 5—0. 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—0.
in their first season at this level, teenager lauren james' strike and a katie zelem penalty earned united their first win in front 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 around half an hour. ade adedoyin is in the khalifa stadium and ade — starting with the 100 semi finals. i think we can look forward to a very fast time because the world a possible my fastest man has been the quickest here in all of the pulmonary rounds. the only one to run under ten seconds of the first round and an semi finals hejogged, i kid you not, did 9.88. i really easy and sensational performance. it
was talk about a possible whereabouts failure. defending champion also through to the final but only as the fastest loser. 30 his semi finals that had to wait for that fast is loser place. not impressive but you can never write him off. remember that he was an olympic champion way back into thousand four. surprised everyone when he won the world title and london 2017. the heavy favour for me is christian coleman. he just wonder how fast he can run tonight. that would start looking at the 100 metres. dina asher smith has real metal prospects in her, how did she fa re metal prospects in her, how did she fare in the heats? really well. one of her heats from about 30 metres out up to 10.96 seconds. she says the fact that she competed with the best of the world on the elite circuit has given her confidence. notjust circuit has given her confidence. not just there to circuit has given her confidence. notjust there to take part but there are to compete and she showed in that first from performance that
she can compete with the best. of the person who really stood out was sheuey the person who really stood out was shelley and fraser price. the former world champion. she ran 10.8 and iogged world champion. she ran 10.8 and jogged it from about a0 metres out. something like that. we asked her how fast can you run? she just smiled and walked away. i think she will be tough to beat. but dina asher smith looks on course from metal. just what a touch up the conditions that was on the women's marathon last night. temperatures getting up to and the humidity that the athletes were struggling with. 10,000 metres in the stadium behind you but later on outside, however the athletes coping? that 10,000 metres you were talking about was one by hassan. it's herfirst global championship and accelerated from the rest of the field on the back straight believe it or not entered
into the 10000 and 1500 metres. does this air condition system in about 20 degrees or so. outside is the problem were at the moment is 33 degrees. same as last night when the women ran the marathon. he saw what happened there. 60 athletes started in 28 of them dropped out. referred lots of water and medics and the world athletics governing body hope you don't see a repeat of what happened last night. with so many athletes struggling in the conditions. 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 claim four consecutive pole positions since lewis hamilton. track mercedes have dominated running every grand prix since 201a 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 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.
the future world champion in the making. 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. 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. 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 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, wales 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 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 and tears is nothing out of the ordinary for him. become his 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 1a 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 really special. the been consistent, they really have. it was that consistency that saw them claim that grand slam in the six nations. for a country that lives in breeds rugby they are nearly there. katie gornall, bbc news, in tokyo. setting my alarm for that one and i discovered this colour coordination is not an accident. i planned it. we
did planet. we might have the 100 metre final to bring you to you. goodbye. hello, the weather has been going downhill through this evening across many parts of the uk. the earlier satellite picture shows this curve of cloud — you can see the way in which it's been developing an area of low pressure, spinning itself up heading in our direction, bringing some very heavy and potentially flooding rain. driving northwards across england and wales through the evening and into the early hours of sunday. some really strong winds down towards the south. some of that rain getting into northern ireland and southern scotland — the northern half of scotland escaping with just a few showers, that's where we will have the lowest of the temperatures.
but as this area of low pressure surges its way through during the first part of tomorrow morning, we will see a very gusty west or southwesterly winds on its southern flanks, with winds gusting from a0—65 mph in its most exposed spots. as we go through sunday, the persistent rain really settles across england, a thoroughly soggy day to come here. to the south of that, a mixture of sunny spells and heavy thundershowers. northern ireland will have some showers, but a decent amount of dry weather and smells of sunshine. feeling on the cool side for aberdeen and newcastle at 13 celsius, maybe 20 celsius in london. now as this area of low pressure clears eastwards, you will notice how on its back edge, the white lines, the isobars really squeeze together. we will have another swathe of very strong winds across southern, central, and eastern parts of england, particularly down the east coast here we could see gusts of 50—60 mph. that, combined with the high tides, could cause some coastal flooding. as we go into monday, the area of low pressure slides away. we get a quieter window of weather. some mist and fog patches around the start monday, but then a decent amount of dry and fine weather with some spells of sunshine. however, notice down
to the southwest, here's our next frontal system and area of low pressure, with more heavy rain piling in across england and particularly wales. again, there is the risk of some localised flooding here. on tuesday, this area of low pressure will slide its way eastwards, and as it clears, we will follow the isobars northwards, where our air will be coming from for the middle parts of the week — a plunge of really chilly air, temperatures dipping away significantly across parts of the uk. let's look at some city forecasts. for the end of the week, it could turn wet and windy again.
this is bbc news. the headlines at 8: the prime minister could face a vote of no confidence as early as next week, according to a senior snp mp, as conservatives gather for their party conference. meanwhile, number 10 describes as a politically motivated attack borisjohnson‘s referral to the police watchdog over his links to an american businesswoman. pressure grows on president trump as secretary of state mike pompeo is ordered to hand over documents on ukraine linked to the impeachment investigation. tear gas and water cannon are used by hong kong police to disperse protestors holding a rally to mark the fifth anniversary of the pro—democracy umbrella movement. now much more tense. we have water cannon spraying water with blue dye in it.
