6:35 pm
good evening. all of that to come, plus reaction to carl frampton‘s title loss, and england six nations injury news. but let's start with football, where the fa cup shocks have continued today. two non—league teams are through to the last 16 of the fa cup, for the first time in its history. yesterday we saw lincoln city march past brighton, and today sutton united have stunned leeds. sutton captainjamie collins was the difference, scoring early in the second half from the penalty spot. leeds are currently fourth in the championship, sutton play in the national league — 83 places below.
6:36 pm
the fifth round draw is tomorrow evening. we were due to play lincoln on saturday the 18th, that got called off last night because lincoln got through. we have got through today, you can almost guarantee we will draw lincoln on the 18th as we should have played them and you will get a non—league team in the quarterfinal. that will never happen again. the competition threw up a few more surprises, with two premier league teams being knocked out. championship side fulham beat hull city 4—1 at craven cottage, and millwall won 1—0 at home to watford. jim lumsden reports. the den isn't an easy place to win a battle. last week, developers looked to have had their proposals shelved, now it was watford whose plans came under scrutiny and their defence was picked apart after a few seconds. what a start that would have been! the premier league side are a0 places above their south london opposition but their
6:37 pm
opportunities were few. millwall sprung a surprise by beating bournemouth in the last round, and another shock began to look likely. with a few minutes remaining, they were in the fifth round as steve morrison sent his side through. watford joined the ranks of those who recently found it doesn't pay to mess with millwall. across london, another premier league side were to be punished for putting out a weakened team as hull fell foul of fullham. luke rowe put the championship side ahead after quarter of an hour. they levelled on 45 minutes before chris martin restored fulham's lead. hull proceeded to fall apart. two more goals made it 4—1 but that was half the story. hull look to have a possible escape routes when they were awarded a penalty. but on what had become a chastening day for hernandez and his hull team—mates, fulham were rescued again.
6:38 pm
so that makes manchester united the only premier league side to make it through to the fifth round today. they made light work of wigan at old trafford, a—nil, it finished. nick parrott was watching. from one legend to another. the ma ntle from one legend to another. the mantle of manchester united top scorer was passed from sir bobby charlton to wayne rooney before kick—off. the club captain says finding the back of the net is like playing football under water, and when you score you come up for air and can hear the crowd. but for much of the first target was weak and transmitting the noise. they might be fighting the threat of relegation in the championship, but they were getting close to breaking through the surface at old trafford. wayne rooney appeared to be drowning, losing challenges you would expect him to win. his team—mates were not doing any better either. chances presented themselves, but they could not hit the target. untiljust before half—time when marouane fellaini struck. it was only his
6:39 pm
second goal of the season, but enough for everyone and read to breathe a sigh of relief. that boosted the cup holders as they dominated the second half from the moment chris smalling double barely. tim henman: atari finished off a flowing move. wayne rooney was not able to find the net but was able to play a role in the final goal, bastian schweinsteiger marking only his third start in the season. manchester united are in the year fell cup final next month, and will be hoping to make a return trip here in may. celtic have extended their unbeaten domestic run to a record 27 matches by beating hearts 4—0 in the scottish premiership. callum mcgregor opened the scoring with the pick of the game's goals at celtic park. they had to wait until the second half for another with scott sinclair netting twice and patrick roberts also getting in on the act. the win broke the 50—year—old record set by celtic‘s lisbon lions team. west ham's dmitri payet looks set
6:40 pm
to rejoin his old club marseille, after both clubs agreed a 25 million pound fee. payet signed a new contract with west ham in february last year, but has faulted this season, with manager slaven bilic saying payet no longer wanted to play for the club. roger federer turned back the clock, winning his 18th grand slam title with a five—set victory over rafa nadal, in the australian open final. at 35 years old, it's been five long years since he won his last major title. tim hague has more. roger federer and rafa nadal, a match—up made in tennis heaven and a final no one could have predicted, yet everyone wanted to see. and this, with 31 majors between them, lived up to expectations. back and forth, like two prized fighters. federer struck the first blow, but nadal, like his opponent, is a man winding back the clock. he didn't disappear. relentless and ruthless in equal
6:41 pm
measure, and this match was level. but not for long. the 17—time grand slam champion produced some scintillating stuff in the third set, taking on nadal and beating him easily, 6—1. and while the contest was as engaging as ever, so were they. a peculiar point to pop the question. yet it didn't distract the spaniard. in the bullring and taking the set by the horns. you can only applaud play like that. it meant we inevitably went to a fifth and final decider. there were so many break points, three of them executed, two in favour of federer. an 18th grand slam title for a 35—year—old many think is the greatest. after this, it would be hard to disagree. tim hague, bbc news. i don't think either one of us believed we would be in the finals of australia when we saw each other
6:42 pm
at the academy five months ago, and here we stand in the finals. tennis is a tough sport, there's no draws, but if there was going to be one i would be happy to accept a draw tonight and share it with rafa. the t20 series between england and india will go to a decider, after india won a thrilling second match by five runs, to level the three—match series. it went right down to the last ball, as drew savage reports. it's not been the most successful of tours, but england had an excellent chance to finish it on the right note. winning the toss and deciding to bowl looks like a good decision, captain virat kohli removed early on. but on a pitch that wasn't giving a some hefty hitting kept india in the game. 71 offjust 47 balls. england took three wickets
6:43 pm
in the 20th over, including jordan. a victory target of 135 looked reachable. this was a bowler‘s game, england were slowed down, ben stokes swung away but missed almost as many as he hit, england needed eight from the last over. exit root and jos buttler. england needed six off the last ball, and you cannot deny india deserved to take the series to a decider. carl frampton says he feels like he's let down his fans, after suffering his first professional loss against leo santa cruz. frampton lost to the mexican fighter on points, and relinquishes his wba featherweight title. reporter thomas kane is in las vegas. it was another thrilling contest between these two top—class fighters. frampton was gracious in defeat admitting he felt his opponent deserved the victory.
6:44 pm
straightaway the focus turned to another immediate rematch with the belfast boxer believing the bout should take place this summer in his home city. 0bviously i'm very disappointed. it was a good fight. i think mainly we've had 23 rounds of each other and they have all been pretty competitive. it is 1—1 now, so if i'm going to look at any positive out of this, we have to make it a trilogy. it has to happen again. leo is a tremendous fighter, congratulations to the new champion, and hopefully he can do it again. i feel like i have come to the states twice now and leo has said he would do it in belfast a third time. i hope he's a man of his word, he can come and stay at my house if he wants and we can get it on for a third time.
6:45 pm
leo, would you be willing to come to belfast? of course, i am a man of my word. it would be inconvenient for me to go to belfast but i am a man of my word. i respect carl frampton and if it is up to mel will go but it is up to my promoter and my manager and they have to come to an agreement. if i say yes, they will make me go, if it was up to me i would. do you see that as your next fight, doing it straightaway? hopefully. we have had two fights already, they were both pretty close and everything so we will make it a third time and give the fans a good fight. this featherweight rivalry has captured the imagination of the boxing world. a trilogy makes sense for both parties as frampton aims to win back his world title.
