7:35 pm
we start, where else, but at augusta. where tiger woods has won the masters. his 15th major title, more than a decade after his last. let's go live to augusta. ben croucher‘s been watching for us. it has been an extraordinary day of golf. at one point we thought it would just be a procession for francesco molinari, he was the overnight leader. but tiger woods has become his old self. his 15th major time, it comes 11 years after his last. here's the rough story of the day, francesco molinari led by three at one point, but then it came onto the par 312 whole, the famous corner, and he put it into the water. he did the same at the 15th hole, as well, making a double bogey. but tiger woods has rolled back for years. this is his tee shot
7:36 pm
over the 16th, over the water. you are member that playoff against marco with that wonderful chip in on this very hole. he really produced the goods when it mattered most. he even could afford a bogey at the last, but tiger woods playing in the famous red shirt that we've seen him play in through the years. the augusta crowd has been right behind him as well, even when pots were missing from some of his opponents. they were being cheered as loudly, but none more loudly on that pot at 18, he like i said, he could even afford to make a bogey on the 18th hole. a fifth green jacket for tiger woods, coming 1a years after his last, at the age of 43, for him to be back at the top of the game. he's one of the greatest comebacks in sports. and he's battled there so many injuries and personal problems to get back to the top? you might
7:37 pm
remember he had to battle various demons away from the course, with extra marital issues, and then only just 2—3 years ago, really struggling with his back. he tried to make one come back, but was doffing little chip shots here and there. absolute agony on his knees at some golf course he was playing at. he had spinalfusion surgery, which really seems to have changed him. he was leading the championship going back onto the back nine last year. he was in a final group at the us pga with brooks erka, finishing in second. 0ne us pga with brooks erka, finishing in second. one of the biggest tournaments on the pga tour towards the end of last season, but the masters is not only one of the biggest tournaments in golf, but one of the biggest sporting events as well. and for tiger woods to have come back from all these issues is one of the great stories, notjust in golf but in the entirety of sport. 0ne in golf but in the entirety of sport. one that we will hear a lot of in the coming days. history at
7:38 pm
augusta. thanks for joining of in the coming days. history at augusta. thanks forjoining us, ben. to another big day in the premier league next. it remains nip and tuck in a thrilling title race between manchester city and liverpool. they were both in action with the chance of finishing the day top of the league. adam wild rounds up the action. for all the football to look forward to at haddonfield, football first pause to look back. 30 years since the hillsboro disaster, this once againa time the hillsboro disaster, this once again a time to remember. silence with such poignancy and purpose, liverpool no doubt know how much this means. chelsea needing the best of the first few chances. but after the break, the breakthrough sadio mane with the moment. the outfield crowd craved. celebrations that have barely subsided when solid did this. the goal is breathtakingly brilliant
7:39 pm
as it was, important for liverpool's hopes for ending the weight. the school sends them back to the top. earlier, manchester city arrived at south hurst park, all too aware that this is a ground on which title fights have faltered in the past. the rahim sterling here was not letting any nerves show. sterling outstanding, two for him. and despite a late crystal palace fight back, gabrielle jesus despite a late crystal palace fight back, gabriellejesus settled it for city. this race, this rivalry goes on. adam wilde, bbc news. so the race goes on. liverpool top of the table by a couple of points, but manchester city have a game in hand. let's hearfrom both the managers. we wa nt we want to have as many points as possible. and if that means at the end, we are champions. and if not,... what a team, when a stadium. unbelievable. i'm so thankful that i

7:41 pm
place sheffield united, with just four games to go. defending champions chelsea have been knocked out of the women's fa cup. they lost 1—0 to manchester city in the semi finals. a horrible moment for magdalena eriksson, who scored an own goal in the 92nd minute to gift city the win. 0bviously ecstatic that we have another opportunity to go up to wembley, it is one of the best years for playing in the fa cup final. but i think the game was pretty even as a whole, so it's a cruel ending. city will play west ham in the final, after they beat reading in the day's early kick off. reading took the lead just after half time. but west ham were leveljust eight minutes later, alisha lehmann with their equaliser. fara williams then missed a penalty for reading, so it finished 1—1 after 90 minutes. no goals in extra time, so it went to penalties.
7:42 pm
cho so hyun's spotkick securing a 11—3 victory for west ham. it means an fa cup final in their first season as a professional team. what a performance, what a battle from start to finish. what a feeling, look at that! look at that — wembley! you are going to wembley. you said how much you wanted to get here with west ham, you've been there so may times with chelsea. what does it mean in your first season at west ham? it so special. i feel like i'm going to cry. it's unbelievable! lewis hamilton has won the chinese grand prix to hold the championship lead for the first time this season. he finished ahead of his mercedes team—mate valtteri bottas, as nick parrott reports. there was no catching lewis hamilton in the pit lane or on the track in shanghai. no wonder, the briton has won here more times than anyone else, and was determined to have the honour of winning formula 0ne's1,000th race.
7:43 pm
he swept past team—mate valtteri bottas and went on to become only the second driver to lead 4,000 laps. the first lap drama continued with both mclarens colliding. but after overtaking sebastian vettel, their ferrari team intervened. let sebastian by. i'm pulling away. mercedes were far slicker, even managing to double up from their pit stops, timing things to perfection. they got lucky last time, but there was nothing fortunate about lewis hamilton's sixth win in china. i think we did a greatjob today, and to have a 1—2 together is special, on the 1,000th grand prix. but the start was where i was able to make the different. that leaves hamilton six points clear in the drivers championship, and mercedes with a best start to a season by a team since 1992. nick parrott, bbc news. wasps have got their biggest win of the season in the gallagher premiership, beating leaders exeter 26—19 to move up to the brink of the play—off places. the chiefs had looked to be
