him to all the way through and he has been very much in inspiration for us andi has been very much in inspiration for us and i think it's really fitting we have done it this year for robert. late var controversy in the merseyside derby as delight turns to disbelief forjurgen klopp‘s side. and steven gerrard's rangers take the honours in the old firm derby thanks to an unlikely hero. hello, and welcome to sportsday. i'm gavin ramjaun. it couldn't have been much closer in the challenge cup final, and it was leeds rhinos who came out on top, beating salford red devils 17—16 to lift the trophy for the first time in five years. and the presence of guest of honour rob burrow was felt everywhere at wembley, even though he was watching the game from home. adam wild reports.
6:32 pm
on the big occasion, so often it is about who can handle the atmosphere for this challenge cup final, who could cope best equipment a first final reports offered in more than half a century. leads, if you have been there more but still neither has played a final quite like this. the rugby league family not in their seats but always in their thoughts. even without the crown, the excitement remains. leads matt's, briscoe somehow squeezing through. that was a truck through the tightest gap of the suffered reply was to find all the space wembley stadium had to offer. and williams is away! one of the great cup final tries for williams. leeds however lead at the great. given the advantage here. salford were a team that continues to defy the odds and this from james greenwood put them
6:33 pm
ahead for the first time. the match rapidly becoming a classic. the second for handley tied the game at i6 and with time running out the captain took aim. a single point enoughjust to captain took aim. a single point enough just to win it for leeds. our braking force offer but on a day where the sport honoured the former leeds great robert borough coming out living with motor neuron disease this victory seemed inspired. rob has been with us in spirit and he has been with us in spirit and he has been with us in spirit and he has been an inspiration for us on this rock and i think it is fitting we have done it this year for rob and numberseven came we have done it this year for rob and number seven came up with a big play. an occasion long remembered for its extraordinary circumstances. the game that may well prove unforgettable. adam wilde, bbc news. we were hoping for drama in the merseyside derby, and it didn't disappoint. everton came from behind twice to draw 2—2 at goodison park, but liverpool were left bemused by a late var decision that denied them victory.
6:34 pm
patrick gearey was watching. goodison park is one of the few places on merseyside that you are allowed to meet your neighbours. in the league, everton started this derby ahead. in the match, the opposite. sadio mane scored for liverpool after just two minutes, and after five, they threatened again. if the play had been offside, it would have been a penalty. as it was, it only ended the van dijk‘s match. with great defenders, you notice the most when they're not there. michael keane was there and it was 1—1. liverpool conceded seven in the last match, and for all the tactical manoeuvring, sometimes it's about pure instinct of players like mohamed salah. once everton might have folded, but in dominic calvert—lewin, they have a player reaching more improbable heights. his tenth of the season already. it seemed like henderson had won it. now there's always a cheque.
6:35 pm
sadio mane offside by an inch. this was a derby that really was that close. patrick gearey, bbc news, liverpool. liverpool managerjurgen klopp said it was the best game they'd played at everton since he took over, but he was utterly baffled by that late var decision. somebody showed me the situation with the henderson goal and i don't know where the line is and where you can do offside. ijust don't understand it. so, yes, obviously we should have won this game but we did not. so we accept that obviously. chelsea wasted the chance to move into the top four, surrendering a 2—0 lead to draw 3—3 with southampton. chelsea were flying thanks to two strikes from timo werner, his first premier league goals since joining in the summer. but southampton weren't about to lay down, and theo walcott‘s shot was turned in by danish defender jannik vestergaard in injury time.
6:36 pm
there are two more matches today. and raheem sterling has given manchester city the lead over arsenal. the second half is about to start at the etihad stadium. and later this evening, can manchester united bounce back from their 6—1 hammering at the hands of spurs in their last league match? they're away at newcastle. rangers have gone four points clear of celtic at the top of the scottish premiership after easing to victory in the first old firm derby to be played without fans. celtic were missing several players through covid restrictions, but they were soundly beaten, as ben croucher reports. goal! and celtic have the goal! the importance of football in the city is etched into the granite. but without the cauldron bubbling with the old firm crackle, this is a fixture that always has meaning.
6:37 pm
always anyway after the defending champions were stunned inside nine minutes. with the usual ferocity absent, this chain chip resented the best celtic had to offer and any attempt to draw a reaction seemed to fall on deaf ears. so no shock when it rangers doubled stubbled there and the only surprise was the identity of the goal score. goals in blowing celtic off the part. indeed the only anguished rangers felt against subdued celtic was it not more right and this free kick both thwarted but there was no denying stephen gerard's team a deserved victory. football without fans may be nothing but this rangers team are onto something special. we had a couple of 0—0 draws elsewhere in the scottish premiership, but there were plenty of goals in the other games. stevie may and craig conway scored two apiece as stjohnstone won 5—3 at hamilton. and kilmarnock shrugged off their recent covid—i9 troubles to come from behind and win 3—1 at livingston. but a third positive coronavirus
6:38 pm
test for st mirren left them with only eight available outfield players, so their match against motherwell had to be postponed. bristol city's perfect start to the english championship season came to an end at barnsley this afternoon. they were denied a fifth win out of five after the home side equalised 12 minutes into stoppage time. cauley woodrow scored a penalty in the 102nd minute following a long delay while a team—mate was getting treatment for an injury. you can find details of all today's games on the bbc sport website. let's take a quick look at some of the day's other sporting headlines. northern ireland'sjonathan rea has won the world superbikes title for the sixth year in a row. he only needed three points from the first race of the weekend at estoril in portugal, and he finished fourth to take the crown. motogp championship leader fabio ouartararo recovered from this crash in third practice to take pole position for the aragon grand prix. britain's cal crutchlow was third, the first time he's made the front row this year.

6:40 pm
for the chiefs, who were playing in the fourth tier of english rugby a little over a decade ago. well, exeter got off to the perfect start with two early push—over tries in typical fashion. but racing stuck with them every step of the way. ireland's simon zebo crossing for their first try. but this pass from scotland's finn russell opened the door for exeter. henry slade crossing for their fourth try to seal a narrow win. harlequins followed up their century of points on the opening weekend of the women's premier 15s with a much harder victory this afternoon at wasps. abbie ward scored twice, making five in two games, as quins won 31—12. they stay above unbeaten loughborough and saracens. what a day it's been for hollie doyle. she's become only the third female jockey to win a group one race. she already had one victory in the bag at ascot when she won the british champions sprint stakes on 16—1 shot glen shiel. she also finished second in her other two races today.
6:41 pm
this all came just three days after she broke her own record for winners ridden by a woman ina year. doyle said it was a dream come true. now to one of the biggest fights of the year. tonight in las vegas, teofimo lopez will face vasiliy lomachenko for a winner—ta kes—all bout in the lightweight division. the covid protocols called for both fighters to stand behind the ropes, but that was instantly ignored. there's a bit of previous controversy involving these two from an incident two years ago between lopez's father and lomachenko, so this bout is not one to miss. why do i have to fear somebody? that quy why do i have to fear somebody? that guy is there to take my bread—and—butter, you know what and thatis bread—and—butter, you know what and that is when it comes to. i'm not going to have no man, all the sacrifices i've been through, just for one man because what? i'm scared. iam not for one man because what? i'm scared. i am not scared. why do i have to be scared? it was one and a

6:43 pm
there are several high—profile documentaries released this week, including two very different portraits of two very different swedish figures. we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction, deforestation of our great forests, toxic air production, loss of insects and wildlife, the acidification of our oceans. these are all disastrous trends. in i am greta, nathan grossman profiles teenage climate activist greta thunberg. from the lonely anonymity of her first school strike outside the swedish parliament in stockholm to her speech to the un in new york where she upbraided the leaders of the world for failing to address
6:44 pm
a crisis that's destroying the planet. this is all wrong. away from the spotlight, we get glimpses of her more private life, of the personal toll these public appearances have taken upon her, her homesickness and longing to get back with her beloved dogs, and, perhaps most importantly, her experience of asperger‘s which taught her to deal with being unpopular when young and then helped her to focus on a problem that few others seemed keen to face head—on. time is running out. of course, as greta herself says, our own focus should not be on her but on climate change — an issue that perhaps sits uneasily with a documentary which, by its very nature, is about her. but causes need figureheads, and there's no doubting that's what thunberg's become, albeit at the cost of a normal childhood. you can find i am greta in cinemas now.
6:45 pm
from a swedish activist to a swedish film—maker, roy andersson, the subject of fred scott's strange and rather wonderful documentary being a human person. having scored a hit with his first feature a swedish love story in 1970, andersson, who reacted badly to success, took five years to make his second film, the poorly—received giliap, after which he concentrated instead on commercials and shorts. setting up his own studio in an empty building in stockholm, he created a world in which he had total control and from which he produced his living trilogy. songs from the second floor, you, the living, and the venice golden lion winner, a pigeon sat on a branch reflecting on existence. working this way is messy because it's about roy's feelings. scott's documentary takes us inside that studio as andersson
