welcome along to sport today, live from the bbc sport centre. plenty to bring you. here's what's coming up. the good times are over for carlo ancellotti at bayern munich — the head coach sacked by the german club. the pictures which mean cricketer ben stokes won't be considered for international duty. and the upsets continue at the wuhan open — the world number one beaten by the 20—year—old with a growing reputation. the five—time european champions bayern munich were beaten by paris st germain in the champions league on wednesday, and that was to be the last match in charge of the german champions for carlo ancellotti who was sacked by the club on thursday. and as our football reporter john bennett explains, their results this season only part of the reason behind his departure. there was a defeat in the champions
league last night, and that was the final straw. it was notjust that they lost, but the way they lost. the performance in the second half was poor and that sums up their performance lately. if you look at the results, the bundesliga has not lost too badly. the biggest problem was unrest behind—the—scenes. ancellotti had fallen out with senior players. normally management is strength of in recent weeks we have seen people giving interviews when they did not necessarily admit that they fell out with him but hinted at problems behind—the—scenes. another problem was that he followed pep guardiola and you could not get more of a contrast in styles between pep guardiola guardiola and ancellotti. it is to be that incidents were only assessed on the football field. not any longer. if it is missed on the
field it will be spotted by somebody else. having been on trial in the number of matches including an international friendly between france and italy it is said to be introduced to the fa cup. what we can do, we can use the facility to zoom in on any particular angle. perhaps camera number five, zoom in on any particular angle. perhaps camera numberfive, the nice tight one, i can double—click on that and expand the screen, play through and i can see if the decision to play on, was clear? you can clearly see the defender the attacker down. i can then communicate to the referee that was an error. recommend you look at it on the screen. i will then send the best angle over to the referee to look at. would you be saying to him right now if you had the head phones on in this situation, how would you
communicate? first we will watch it in live play and then we will see something that may cause it to be a penalty. there is a three second delay. and if i think it is a penalty i will hit the button, i will get the best angles and i will speak on the radio does he hold the restart, by now the ball is out of play, the ball has gone out of play. i will say to hold the restart, i can i will say to hold the restart, i ca n allow i will say to hold the restart, i can allow the game to start until i finish. i want the best angles. it will only take ten seconds to confirm that that was a clear error, that it should be a penalty kick. at that it should be a penalty kick. at that point i can recommend a review to the referee and i will probably send him these two angles. this is exactly what he will see on the screen by the side of the pitch. with the ashes around the corner the england cricketer ben stokes finds his immediate future in the hands of the british police. the england and wales cricket board say they will not consider picking their star all rounder after pictures emerged allegedly showing stokes fighting outside a nightclub in the early hours of monday morning uk time. a warning, katie gornall‘s report
contains some violent images. a night that spiralled out of control. this video allegedly shows england's vice captain, ben stokes, here in the green t—shirt, involved ina here in the green t—shirt, involved in a street fight. the footage, published by the sun newspaper, claims to show the cricket rawling outside a nightclub in bristol in the early hours of monday morning. he was arrested after visiting a nearby nightclub in bristol, the city where hours earlier england had played a one—day international. city where hours earlier england had played a one-day international. we need to know the full facts of exactly what went on on that night. he should not have been in that
position. i do not think being out at 2:30 a.m. 0n position. i do not think being out at 2:30 a.m. on a monday morning is the right thing during a series to be seen doing. ultimately he needs to look in the mirror and change. he needs to be the one to change his lifestyle off the cricket field. we don't want his cricketing to change on the field but we do need to change off the field. '5 is not the first time he has faced scrutiny. in 2011 he was cautioned after obstructing a police officer or after a night out in newcastle. in nine years later he was sent home from the lines to our in australia for repeated late—night drinking. in 2014 he broke it and after punching a dressing room locker which ruled him out of the g20 world cup. 0n the field he is regarded as england's best all—rounder, the player australia would feel most ahead of the ashes series in november. members of the english cricket board have now reviewed the footage. it was announced that stokes and his
teammate alex hales will not be considered for international selection until further notice. with his immediate future in the hands of cricket authorities and police, his ashes dream seems a long way off. 0n the field sri lanka fought back on the first day of the first test against pakistan in abu dhabi. despite making a shaky start after choosing to bat first, they were in trouble on 61 for three until opener dimuth karunaratne led the recovery. he shared a fourth wicket stand of 100 with skipper dinesh chandimal but was run out for 93. chandimal is still there, 60 not out, and sri lanka will resume on 227 for four. south africa are on top after the first day of the first test against bangladesh in potchefstroom, thanks to a superb innings from dean elgar, 128 not out. hashim amla alongside him, aiden markram and elgar had put on 196 for the first wicket, before markram was run out for 97. south africa will resume on 298 for 1. in tennis, the semi—final line—up
for the wuhan open in china is complete — but it doesn't include the world number one garbine muguruza. she was beaten in three sets by the french open championjelena 0stapenko. the champion lost in 3—set, the latvian coming from a set down. she will now face ashley barty who defeated pliskova. now they call it the presidents cup, and it's fair to say phil mickleson captured just that, sneaking a selfie with three former occupants of the white house on the opening day of the biennial matchplay tournament which pits the usa against an international team. and as colm harrison reports, they have reason to be happy — having witnessed a great start by the usa. barack 0bama ba rack 0bama was barack 0bama was one of three former
us president in attendance on the opening day of the presidents cup in newjersey and he saw the americans make a blistering start to the defence of their trophy. ricky and justin got the ball rolling with a co mforta ble justin got the ball rolling with a comfortable victory over charles schwarz. they never looked back after this chip in birdie at the third. and when the former masters champion missed this long putt for our, that signalled a six and four win for the americans in the first point of the day. the second soon followed to dustinjohnson point of the day. the second soon followed to dustin johnson from point of the day. the second soon followed to dustinjohnson from a bunkin followed to dustinjohnson from a bunk in on the seventh, the highlight of a one up the tree against adam scott and jonathan vegas. jordan speith and patrick reda now seasoned partnerships for presidents cups and writers club. they were too good for the international pairing. dame won five and fourand international pairing. dame won five and four and the home team were now 3-0 to
and four and the home team were now 3—0 to half of this us side are rookies, including the us open champion. here and a fellow new player enjoyed a difficult debut and paid the penalty for a few too many mistakes. they lost to a south african duo who stopped the rot to the international scientific phil mickelson has played in all 12 presidents cups and in the final match of the day at games marc leishman and jason day, the americans are lead by two points overall. staying with golf, south africa's george coetzee, playing in the british masters has a share of the lead after the first round. he began with a 7—under—par round of 63 and shares the lead with england's tyrrell hatton — they're both one shot clear of the field. former world number one rory mcilroy, hi there.
