7:44 pm
so it's wigan's first challenge cup trophy since 2013, with the lancashire side delighted to come out on top of a hard—fought roses battle. it wasn't the prettiest, let's be honest. we played in games this year better than that, but at the same time it showed how mentally tough this team is to hang in there, literally until the second last minutes of the game. yeah, mentally tough, resilient, that is all the things that matter, trying to bring to this team, showed it in abundance, we hung in there and it is the simple things, that is what you have to do in the finals. both teams you can see the commitment _ in the finals. both teams you can see the commitment on - in the finals. both teams you can see the commitment on show, i in the finals. both teams you can | see the commitment on show, no in the finals. both teams you can - see the commitment on show, no one .ave see the commitment on show, no one gave up. _ see the commitment on show, no one gave up. at— see the commitment on show, no one gave up, at times it looked like we might— gave up, at times it looked like we might get— gave up, at times it looked like we might get a score, scrambling efforts, — might get a score, scrambling efforts, on the other side we did the same — efforts, on the other side we did the same occasionally, it was a moment— the same occasionally, it was a moment at— the same occasionally, it was a moment at the end, if i could have picked _ moment at the end, if i could have picked anyone, i would have picked liam _ picked anyone, i would have picked liam marshall, not sunk in 100%, i

7:46 pm
playground carries danger around every corner. the main protagonist stayed in one piece, and when it was time to take it right to the wall, ferrari's charles leclerc had the edge, feeling right at home. lewis hamilton, three times a winner here, only managed eighth behind lando norris and team—mate george russell. as everyone tried to catch leclerc, some were left chasing their tails. sergio perez lost a rear, and remember the danger around every corner? sainz didn't see it coming. the world's richest, brightest and fastest may flock here but to go fast a little note local knowledge can go a long way. so after retiring from the lead last weekend in barcelona, could leclerc�*s fortunes be changing at a track where he's never even finished a race?
7:47 pm
let's hear from the two title contenders. iamso i am so incredibly happy. it has been a very smooth weekend until now, i knew the pace was in the car, i had to do thejob. it went perfectly, the last lap before the red flag was really good. i was iwas up i was up on my lap, all feeling good, — i was up on my lap, all feeling good, then i saw the roadblock, so it is unlucky, — good, then i saw the roadblock, so it is unlucky, it is monaco, you just— it is unlucky, it is monaco, you just have — it is unlucky, it is monaco, you just have to— it is unlucky, it is monaco, you just have to deal with it, accept it and move — just have to deal with it, accept it and move on from there. next to the french open tennis, where the world number two daniil medvedev is into the last 16. he's yet to drop a set, despite playing on clay, which he says he doesn't always enjoy. the russian was in impressive form against 28th seed miomir kecmanovic — he hit a2 winners including this one on match point in a straight sets win, 6-2, 6-a, 6-2. he reached the quarterfinals last year and will play marin cilic in the fourth round. no problems either for last year's runner—up at rolland garros, stefanos tsitsipas — the numberfour seed could meet medvedev in the semi—finals after taking just over an hour
7:48 pm
and a half to get past sweden's mikael ymer in straight sets. in the women's draw, the top seed, iga swiatek, is also through — the world number one won 6—3, 7—5 against montenegro's danka kovinic. that extends her unbeaten run to 31 matches. swiatek�*s in a league of her own lately, chasing a second french open title — and is the only top—10 seed left in the women's draw after aryna sabalenka and paula badosa failed to make it through today. port vale will be back in league one next season after they beat mansfield 3—0 in the league two play—off final. it's five years since the staffordshire club were relegated to the bottom tier, but kian harratt�*s stooping header set them on their way after 20 minutes. and just four minutes later, they made it two. ben garrity�*s header hit the bar but james wilson scored his 15th of the season. mansfield had oli hawkins sent off for a second yellow before former mansfield player mal benning wrapped it up for vale late in the second half.
7:49 pm
grimsby town are 90 minutes away from a return to league two after a dramatic win over wrexham in their national league play off semifinal at the racecourse ground. after the match finished a—a in normal time, it looked to be heading for a penalty shoot—out before this 118th minute header from captain luke waterfall won it for grimsby. that puts them into the final at the london stadium, where they'll play either solihull moors or chesterfield next sunday. time now for a quick look at some of the other stories making the sports news today. italy's alessandro covi was a popular winner on stage 20 of the giro d'italia — but the real drama happened behind him. australia's jai hindley broke away from race leader richard carapaz to take the the pinkjersey. he's now one minute and 25 seconds ahead with just a time trial to go tomorrow. glasgow hosted the first round of the bmx world cup. there were high hopes for the british riders after a successful olympics, but colombia's diego arboleda won the men's event, with britain's kye white making a late run to take third place.
7:50 pm
olympic champion beth shriever was eighth in the women's final. american businessman todd boehly�*s takeover of chelsea will be completed on monday. the club was put up for sale in march before owner roman abramovich was sanctioned over his links to russian president vladimir putin. only one place to end the programme, backin only one place to end the programme, back in paris, back with ollie foster, all been happening in a time we had been away, most by collision around liverpool starting line—up with tiago, now unsure about that, one thing we know for certain is that the kick—off has been delayed. yes, at the start of the programme, we brought you the news about crowd trouble, some of the turnstiles, some fans trying to get through, we assume without tickets. police
7:51 pm
seizing some of those fans, a bottleneck at another side of the stadium which meant fans were not getting in. reports of lots and lots of empty seats in deliverable end, though we have heard them in good voice, those inside singing you will never walk alone. nauber gary lineker tweeted this, finding it impossible to get into the ground, this appears to be very dangerous ——, if he is with the media as we suspect try to get into that side, gate u, one of the gates where that trouble was reported, the police were making some arrests over there with fans trying to get in the turnstiles. but because of fans not getting into the ground, delay has been, kick—off has been delayed by 15 minutes. not nine minutes, the 67th european cup final, because of the trouble getting fans into the
7:52 pm
stadium safely, kick—off as it stands is now going to be at 8:15pm, now 15 pm ourtime, stands is now going to be at 8:15pm, now 15 pm our time, though confirmation about katie mac, we brought you the good news that tiago and fabinho had both passed late fitness tests but it does appear that debbie cater is being primed to come in from the start, we don't know whether that will be for fabinho or tiago, certainly the biggest fitness doubt was tiago who had an achilles issue. we may bring you some news about that any more news and when it will certainly go ahead at 8:15pm between liverpool and real madrid. course, liverpool now going for the travel, not the quadruple, they have done it before backin quadruple, they have done it before back in 2001, that was that great side of steven gerrard, they won the fa cup in the same season. the uefa
7:53 pm
cup, it was a fantastic treble, swept all the cups competitions before them. the liverpool team in 2001 also competed a treble of league cup, fa cup and uefa cup — robbie fowler's goals played a big part in that season. i spoke to him earlier today, and he is sure that trophy will be liverpool's again. i think liverpool when comfortable, it is not being being blase about liverpool, real madrid are european royalty, but think they have had a bit of luck along the way, as have most teams. i think if liverpool start the way they can start games and they go about it that way, i do not think they are madrid can live with them, this liverpool team is a totally different one that played them into thousand 18. i cannot see
