whether he does it as ian suggests, i don't know. it is incredible, people are in favour of the principle. what is extraordinary is this six—week delay intended to get people used to being paid in arrears as if they were then work demonstrates such a failure of the psychology of people in difficulty. thank you. that's all for this evening. but before we go, have you ever wondered what it's like to enter mars' atmosphere at twice the speed of sound attached to a parachute? nasa has released a point of view footage of the parachute. goodnight. slow motion, in video originally shot at 1000 frames per second. but played back here at 30 frames per second, we see the initial suspension lines pulling out of the pack and taking the parachute backwards, where it will ultimately inflate in merely half a second. hello and welcome to sportsday.

i'm lizzie greenwood—hughes. the headlines tonight: goodbye wales, hello sunderland. chris coleman becomes thier eighth manager in four years. —— their. jose mourinho says philjones was on painkillers when he played for england against germany and that he shouldn't have been asked to play. and england lose the women's ashes series, as australia storm to an unassailable lead. so let's start with the breaking
11:47 pm
news this evening. wales and northern ireland's football managers are on the move. we'll come on to the latter in a moment but first wales and chris coleman has left his job in charge of the national side to take over at sunderland, who are bottom of the championship. coleman had managed wales for five years taking them from 48th to 14th in the world rankings. he'll be sunderland's eighth permanent manager in four years. before chris coleman wales waited 58 yea rs before chris coleman wales waited 58 years to get to a tournament. last yea r‘s years to get to a tournament. last year's victory over belgium marked the dizzying peak for welsh would ball, a time when anything seemed possible. we can't be afraid of our dreams. four years ago i was as far
11:48 pm
away from this as you can imagine. if you aren't afraid of the dream and you aren't afraid to fail. the low point came when he took over from gary speed, who took his own life in 2011. he had to help the young players speed had helped to bring through, through the shock. he inspired ever in proving performances and the manager had on his side a global superstar.l moment of absolute magic! he has brought such a great atmosphere to the camp and he makes us want to win for ourselves and for our country. he has really ought that passion back. his gold was accompanied by newly forged steel at the back. wales made the euros, and beat russia, then northern ireland. then unforgettably belgium. the crime stopped and they lost to portugal in the semi—final and couldn't quite rediscovered the magic in world cup qualifying. but defeat to the
11:49 pm
republic of ireland meant the end of their challenge. and the end of chris coleman. they know exactly what it means and they want to achieve more. they will wither without me. i'm convinced of that. he is hardly taking the easy option in going to sunderland, struggling in the second tier, but it may never eclipse the job he did in the second tier, but it may never eclipse thejob he did in taking welsh football from its toughest moment to its greatest one. sunderland are aiming to confirm the deal by sunday. ryan giggs is one of the favourites to replace him. meanwhile, we've also learned this evening that northern ireland have given permission for michael o'neill to speak to the scottish fa about their vacant manager's job. like coleman, o'neill was also bitterly disappointed that northern ireland just missed out on qualifying for next year's world cup. o'neill has been in charge of northern ireland for six years, leading them to last year's euros, theirfirst majorfinals for 30 years. still with football and jose mourinho has criticised
11:50 pm
england's medical team for making his defender philjones play with injections in theirfriendly with germany last week. the manchester united manager says thatjones, who'll miss their game with newcastle tomorrow, should not have been asked to play when not fully fit in a game where the result didn't really matter. the fa are making no comment. in17 in 17 years as a manager, i don't have one single player that had injections of anaesthetics to play a friendly. never. never. i'm notan angel and friendly. never. never. i'm notan angelandl friendly. never. never. i'm notan angel and i have players to be injected to play crucial matters. but a friendly? to get six anaesthetic local injections to play anaesthetic local injections to play a friendly? i never heard about it. philjones had it and had it before the match and after 50 minutes he
11:51 pm
was out and obviously tomorrow he's out. sheffield united are top of the championship table after beating burton albion 3—1 tonight. they're now a point ahead of wolves in second place. in the night's other game, preston drew 0—0 with strugglers bolton. onto cricket and with the men's ashes starting in less than a week, england's women have lost their series in australia after a heavy defeat in the first twenty20. the hosts now have an unassailable lead in the multi format ashes points series and have regained the famous trophy with two games to spare. 0ur correspondent andy swiss was watching in sydney. england knew it was win or bust for their ashes hopes. not the moment for one of the most chaotic start you will see. heather knight was caught behind, or was she? the catch seemingly taken in front of the stumps. she was reprieved before another change of mind and she was out again. confused? england were as they disintegrated in a flash 16—
11:52 pm
four and the ashes surely as good as over. but then a recovery, thanks to australian butter fingers and a rattling half—century. their total of 132 at least gave them a chance, but it proved a mere flicker, as australia dispatched them into the syd ney australia dispatched them into the sydney night. a couple of wickets briefly revived england's hopes, but they ultimately only postponed the inevitable. they retain the ashes and they've done it with two games to spare. england might be the world champions but in this series they we re very champions but in this series they were very much second best. you could see it on the faces of the girls at the end of the game. there's not a lot —— a lot of emotion around tonight. we are disappointed. i thought we had a chance when we got 130. i thought we had a chance to be on again, but credit to australia, they've played better cricket this series. with the men's ashes starting next week,
11:53 pm
australian fans already have plenty to cheer. absolutely spectacular and i can't wait to next thursday to win it again. really good to see. a great venue. the girls are playing such great cricket. the men's are coming up and it's going to be amazing. it's going strong. and so a yearin amazing. it's going strong. and so a year in which england scaled the heights of a world cup win has ended in disappointment. the first triumph of this ashes winter has gone australia's way. england's women rugby players have bounced back from their world cup final defeat this summer to thump. —— canada 79—5 in the first of three tests against them this autumn. in their first game since the rfu confirmed they'll be paid match fees, england were rampant running in 13 tries at allianz park, six of them scored by harlequins wing jess breech on her debut. the two sides will play again next tuesday and saturday. there was one game in the aviva premiership tonight where top of the table saracens lost at gloucester. sarries dominated the first half
11:54 pm
at kingsholm, but a remarkable comeback from gloucester meant they scored 20 second half points including this try by tom hudson to seal a 23—17 victory. so confirmation of that score and the night's two other matches in the anglo welsh cup. both all welsh affairs as ospreys won at cardiff and the dragons beat the scarlets. onto tennis and andy murray has split with his coach ivan lendl for the second time. during their time together, murray won three grand slam titles, two olympic golds and obtained the world number one ranking. the briton has been plagued with injury all season and will continue to work on regain his fitness leading up to january's australian open. meanwhile, his brotherjamie is progressing well at the atp tour finals in london. jamie and his doubles partner bruno soares have cruised into the last four at the 02. they beat the top ranked pairing of marcelo melo and lukasz kubot in straight sets 6—2, 6—4. their semi—final will be
11:55 pm
against defending champions henri kontinen and murray's former partnerjohn peers tomorrow. in the singles draw, david goffin completes the semi—final line—up. the belgian had to beat dominic thiem in their last group game to progress. and he did so in straight sets 6—4, 6—1. but his opponent in the semis is tournament favourite roger federer. jack sock and grigor dimitrov will contest the other semi. golf now and english players are dominating the european tour's season—ending championship in dubai after a fascinating second round. defending champion matthew fitzpatrick is leading the field. but it was this man, tyrell hatton, who pushed him all the way, after the round of the day. shooting a nine under par 63 to take second place. fitzpatrick made a birdie at the last to go one shot ahead of hatton on ten under and two shots ahead ofjustin rose, who'sjoint third on the leaderboard. that's all from sportsday.
