on the verge of winning one of women's golf major tournaments, she was penalised in herfinal round after a tv viewer spotted an infringement the previous day. 0ur sports correspondent, andy swiss, reports. just imagine it. you are on course for the winner of your life, just a few homes from glory but lexi thompson's dream was about to become a nightmare. the reason, this moment from her previous round. look closely, she marks a ball, picks it up closely, she marks a ball, picks it up and then puts it down in a fractionally different place, which is against the rules. no one noticed at the time but a tv viewer spotted it, alerted officials who then interrupted her final round to give her a four shot penalty. is this a joke? no, it is not. that is ridiculous. thomson was in tears.

6:43 pm
ofa the 2020 format doesn't need a bit of a shake—up in this country. if you look around the world there are phenomenally good t20 franchise leagues around the world and it is ironic that england was the founder of the game is a little bit behind in that sense. it is only going to add it. there will be a lot of teams who will be interested in our players because of the strength that we have. it is not good for the county and the way they are looking at a behind the way they are looking at a behind the scenes before us as individuals and players it is an opportunity to put ourselves of their on a wider scale of international cricket. push ourselves forward and go higher. that's all from sportsday. there'll be more sport here on bbc news throughout the evening. it is coming up to a quarter to
