Cricket: Ashes Test

Australia have retained the Ashes as they defeated England by 185 runs at Old Trafford and they now lead the five-match series, 2-1. 

 

F1 Italian Grand Prix.

Charles Leclerc survived an onslaught from Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas to win a thrilling Italian Grand Prix.

With 11 laps remaining, Hamilton then made a mistake at the first corner in his pursuit of Leclerc, falling off the road and allowing Bottas to take second. On fresher tyres, Bottas took over from Hamilton in his pursuit of Leclerc but crossed the line just eight-tenths shy of the Ferrari star.

"Charles did a great job," said Hamilton. "He came under a lot of pressure from Valtteri and I. I did the best I could, but following so closely for so many laps, the tyres just went off the cliff. It was not our day."
