against wladimir klitschko. all of that big fight anticipation to come. but only one place to start and that's at the stadium of light, where sunderland lost their match against bournemouth by a 1—0, meaning david moyes's side are relegated. hull true? their10-year hull true? their 10-year stay in the premier league is over. huge disappointment for david moyes and the sunderland fans. it has been coming for a while. the last decent season was 2010—11, when they finished tenth. since then, seven managers in six years. 1—0 today,
6:35 pm
josh king scored the only goal for bournemouth. he has scored 12 goals in the calendar year, three more than sunderland. that shows you where the problems are. their first win was in november. it is only one win was in november. it is only one win since the 17th of december. five all season? 18 league matches without scoring as well. so many problems. you wonder what the future will be for david moyes. before we come onto him, you say it has been coming for some time, they have been struggling all season, but you went back to 2012? that has been no stability, all of those managers. they change their managers, the likes of dick advocaat at, gus poyet, paolo di canio, but they didn't change their manager this time, david moyes stayed and they went down. naturally there is a lot of talk now about david moyes' future at sunderland, here's what he said to our reporter steve bower. sadly, we are all obviously disappointed, feeling more for the supporters that support the club.
6:36 pm
they come and watch regularly, they are the ones you feel most about. we take collective responsibility, from the top to the bottom. because of that, we will dust ourselves down, look at it over the next few weeks and see what we have to do. is it the one overriding thing that has gone wrong this season, or an accumulation? i think it is an accumulation. for me to give you a snap answer to that after the game, i can't really do it. i would rather take some time to think about it and put it in place. have you got a burning desire of unfinished business to get this club back into the premier league?” think the plan, when i do sit down with ellis, the plan will be looking at how we can do that as quickly as possible. you like to see a challenge through, that is what you have generally done in your this is a great football club, you mentioned the supporters, that is why i feel for them. they are the ones that put their hard earned cash into coming
6:37 pm
to games. we have to try to give them something to shout about. he keeps saying he wants to have a sit down, wait a couple of weeks and decide what to do. we do not know if it will be his decision if he stays. what about the players, big names likejermain defoe, what about the players, big names like jermain defoe, will what about the players, big names likejermain defoe, will they still be there? era i can't see him staying. i don't think most fans wa nt staying. i don't think most fans want david moyes to stay. they have been upset by the results, but also his negative demeanour. after two games he said they would be in a relegation battle. i thinkjermain defoe will go, if he wants to stay in england. jordan pickford is the other player that will be links to a lot of clubs. let's hear from one of the players, john o'shea.” lot of clubs. let's hear from one of the players, john o'shea. i have been here a good few years now. the attitude around the place will a lwa ys attitude around the place will always be togetherness, a family club. we have to get that back as quickly as possible, get bouncing as quickly as possible, get bouncing as quickly as possible, to get that confidence. when there is noise at
6:38 pm
the stadium of light, everybody together, momentum is huge and we can get on a big run. there are going to be changes in the summer. i have never been in the situation before in my career. it is obvious the very disappointing. but it is a chance for the club to take stock of everything and see where we go as quickly as possible, to bounce back and give the fans what they deserve, premier league football again.” imagine the fans will want him to stay, of all the players. southampton and hull, another goalless match. sunderland's fate was sealed when hull, who arejust above the drop zone, drew with southampton 0—0. that is why they have gone down? hero is the goalkeeper for hull. a penalty save by jakupovic, hero is the goalkeeper for hull. a penalty save byjakupovic, a
6:39 pm
controversial penalty. tadic stepped up. brilliant save byjakupovic. that could be a crucial point for hull, they struggled all season away from home. they are brilliant at home, but an excellent point. let's hear from the hero, home, but an excellent point. let's hearfrom the hero, the home, but an excellent point. let's hear from the hero, the goalkeeper. it was important that i helped the team again today with two saves, and a last—minute penalty. yes, it was important. just trying to help the team. in the late kick—off, crystal palace are playing burnley. you will see how important this game is, neither of those teams are safe. both sides are needing to climb further away from relegation danger. what has been happening? and early chance from christian benteke. he didn't manage to put it away. here is the only goal of the game so far. it was ashley barnes with the goal. burnley are still not safe. they have not won away all season. the
6:40 pm
last time they went a whole season without winning away was 1903. it will be huge, if they hold on. west brom against leicester, a mid—table battle, i suppose. leicester, the magic a0 points? significant for leicester city and jamie vardy. you can see the fans celebrating. who would have thought, when claudio ranieri was sacked, they would make it do that? nine weeks ago, five straight defeats in the premier league. it looked like they were going down. the owners made the controversial decision to sack him. craig shakespeare came in. he has turned things around. jamie vardy, scoring. he is on a great run of goals since craig shakespeare took over, eight goals in 12 games. craig shakespeare, will he get the job next season? he doesn't want to say yes no. lam i am pleased with the performance
6:41 pm
today. i say performance, we had to show different aspects. we had to defend. a gutsy performance, pleased with the three points. ultimately, it is about the players. i can pick the team and the tactics, but they have got to perform. great credit goes to them. i think he is the best position of any manager in the premier league. the goal drought continued at stoke, it comes to something when the best thing we can talk about is the goalkeeper, jack butland ? thing we can talk about is the goalkeeper, jack butland? the one positive, his first home game in the premier league since march 2016. he had that ankle injury, brilliant performance, excellent save, overhead kick. a real positive, despite the fact it was a poor game. we have the trophy, which means the ta bles we have the trophy, which means the tables are coming up. it has all been about the bottom of the table. leicester city, the magic a0. hull have played one game more, which makes their current position more
6:42 pm
perilous. it shows what a huge point that can be. swansea play manchester united at old trafford tomorrow. middlesbrough have got back city? yes, a massive point for hull today. you're talking about middlesbrough already going down, you were not even interested ? already going down, you were not even interested? they are in big trouble. we have some fantastic matches tomorrow. we have a north london derby, spurs against arsenal. first, everton against chelsea. everton have won eight consecutive home games, will chelsea slip up? then the north london derby. will the pressure the top? do you think chelsea have got it? i think this is their last tough game, if chelsea win, ithink their last tough game, if chelsea win, i think that is it. you heard it here first! i will go straight to the bookmakers! there was humiliation for rangers in the old firm derby as celtic ran out 5—1 winners at ibrox. it was their biggest away victory over their rivals in the fixture's history and means brendan rodger‘s side remain unbeaten
6:43 pm
domestically this season. here's tim hague. the managers might be friendly, but an old firm derby is not. take a look at this early foul, for example. it also happened to be in the box, giving celtic the chance to take another step towards an invincible season, which scott sinclair took. much like their scottish cup semifinal a week ago, this was a one—sided affair. leigh griffiths, with a gorgeous goal. 2—0 to the champions inside 20 minutes. it would become an increasingly painful afternoon for the home side, battered in every way imaginable. callum mcgregor, this time, before boyata got one as well. a—0, and still 25 minutes to go. not that many rangers fans stuck around for it. those that stayed saw the only positive on a dark day, the player of the season, kenny miller, getting one back, only for lustig to cancel it out. he made it a fantastic five. block
6:44 pm
your years, the first old firm derby this season ended 5—1, the last the same. champions celtic, simply too good. and police scotland say 8 arrests were made in and around the ground, while they are also investigating an alleged incident of racial abuse aimed at celtic‘s scott sinclair. elsewhere in the scottish premiership, second—placed aberdeen were beaten 2—0 by stjohnstone hamilton also lost 2—0 at home, to kilmarnock hearts drew 2—2 with partick and dundee's 3—2 win means they leapfrog motherwell, leaving their hosts in the relegation play—off spot. newcastle and brighton may have reached the premier league next season but the hunt for the championship title is still on. brighton can secure the title with victory over bristol city in the tea—time kick off. it is not quite going according to plan. josh brown hill headed the ball home with bristol city's first effort on targetjust before
6:45 pm
half—time. the second half is under way. brighton will have to come from behind to guarantee the title tonight. elsewhere, barnsley against burton ended level. birmingham's hopes of survival were boosted with a 2—0 win over huddersfield. blackburn are two points from safety after their 1—0 win over aston villa. derby beat wolves 3—1 fulham are virtually guaranteed the final playoff spot, they drew 1—1 with west london rivals brentford. sheffield wednesday won away at ipswich. leeds united came from 3—0 down to draw 3—3 with norwich but their play—off hopes are effectively over. preston and rotherham was 1—1. nottingham forest stay out of the relegation zone by virtue of a single goal — they lost 2—0 at queen's park rangers. and wigan athletic will make an immediate return to league one after they lost 1—0 at reading. there were problems at leyton orient this afternoon — already relegated from league two they were losing 3—1 at home to colchester when five minutes from the end, orient fans invaded the pitch. around 750 fans came onto the field to protest about the club owner
6:46 pm
francesco becchetti. play was suspended for around an hour before eventually being abandoned at 5:a5. just weeks after they secured a place in the fa trophy final at wembley, york city have been relegated from the national league. their fate was in their own hands going in to their game against forest green — they trailed twice to the visitors and thouthon parkin's two goals kept them with a chance of survival, their 2—2 draw wasn't enough. guiseley drew with a late equaliser, sending york city down for the second successive season. well, the day is here, the time for talking is over and only actions will matter in the ring when britain's anthony joshua takes on wladimir klitschko in their heavyweight unification bout later. the ibf and wba titles are on offer when the pair meet in front of a massive crowd of 90—thousand at wembley stadium tonight. our reporter olly foster is there. a sizeable difference between the
6:47 pm
two. did we get a glimpse of the magnitude of the event? there were 2000 people cheering on anthony joshua at the weigh—in. we have a public work—out earlier this week. massive interest in the head news conference. it has been bubbling up all week. the gate have been open for a couple of hours. 90,000 should be in their seats by now. the undercard is under way. cracking fights on the undercard. but it is all about the main event. we are about three hours away from the ring walk and then the first bell will go at one minute past ten o'clock. what at one minute past ten o'clock. what a fight we are looking forward to. because you looked at the sizeable
6:48 pm
difference, joshua the heaviest in his career, 250 pounds, just shy of 18 stone. then you have wladimir klitschko, at the age of a1, 1a yea rs klitschko, at the age of a1, 1a years joshua's klitschko, at the age of a1, 1a yearsjoshua's senior. my word, he dominated this division for almost a decade, until, 18 months ago, his last fight, he lost all of his belts to tyson fury. tyson fury went off the rails, there were some aborted rematches. but wladimir klitschko looks in great shape. he is convinced he can beat a man that he used to spar with a couple of years ago. let's hearfrom both fighters. anthonyjoshua thinks it tyson fury can do it, so can he. he's a good fighter, you can't deny that. they've done a good job, and myjob is to do the same. i don't want to beat him and people to say, x, x, x. i listen to what he has to say. he's obsessed. he's got passion.
6:49 pm
when i defeat him, i want to say i faced the best man possible. the man that is coming off a defeat is the best man. you learn from your mistakes. that is why i'm looking forward to the challenge. i don't think about being the three times world champion. i think about only one thing. it is all about my ego, which was scratched with the last fight. ijust want to show to myself i can do it. i've still got it. i know i can do it. everything else is a positive side—effect. if you can hear me, much has been said about the difference in experience. you mentioned that yourself. how much does that experience of the crowds, big atmosphere, open—air, late at night, how much will that come into it? some people thinkjoshua has not looked as relaxed as he might have done over the last couple of days?
6:50 pm
he has never fought done over the last couple of days? he has neverfought a done over the last couple of days? he has never fought a fighter like wladimir klitschko, who has fought 50 more fights. one of those fights was in hamburg, against david haye. it was a filthy night, i was there. let's not forget, anthonyjoshua, one of his early fights was here at wembley stadium, three years ago. it lasted 83 seconds. it was a knockout. he has knocked out all of his opponents. he knows about the wembley atmosphere. it was only about one third foal when he fought on the undercard, carl froch against g roves. all on the undercard, carl froch against groves. all fighters get nervous. there is so much at stake. they will add to their millions garnished from the fight game. because it is a unification bout, wladimir klitschko, that is probably the end of his career if he loses. it will bea bump of his career if he loses. it will be a bump on the road if anthony joshua losers. there is so much at sta ke. joshua losers. there is so much at stake. that experience klitschko, many people think that will tell in
6:51 pm
the end. we will see, you can listen to the fight in full on bbc radio 5 live from 9pm. ferrari's return to form in formula one has continued, as championship leader sebastian vettel took pole for this weekend's russian grand prix — closely followed by his teammate kimi raikkonen. for the mercedes of lewis hamilton though, the weekend has been a struggle thus far. he's ath on the grid, behind his teammate valtteri bottas, as ben croucher reports. sochi's olympic park is a sporting destination in the winter and it offers all the adrenaline which you could ask for. come the spring sunshine, f1 slaloms through. but going off—piste is not the quickest way out, asjolyon palmerfound out to his peril in the first part of qualifying. at the front, it came down to the same tussle between ferrari and mercedes. but it wasn't championship leader sebastian vettel that initially set the pace, rather the iceman, kimi raikkonen, grabbing pole as hamilton struggled to get to grips with the sochi surface. ferrari haven't been first and
6:52 pm
second on the surface since 2008. vettel‘s final run was enough to pip his team—mate by less than a tenth of a second. ferrari faces were soon beaming when hamilton's best effort was only good enough forfourth behind bottas. the russian race has only ever been won from the front row, so there is every chance we will see similar celebrations tomorrow. home favourite lizzie deignan has won the women's tour de yorkshire. the former road race world champion and london olympics silver medallist crossed the finishing line in harrogate 5a seconds ahead of the chasing group. on the radio, my team manager was saying, you've got this. i saw the 1k to go banner, and i thought, i haven't got this, it is really difficult. you are in a world of pain and you don't dare relax until you are at the finish line. so i didn't soak it up until i had about 100 metres to go. the second stage of the men's race was won by frenchman nacer bouhanni.
6:53 pm
australia's caleb ewan finished second to take the overall lead. the highest placed briton was christopher lawless who was fourth and simon yates has won the fourth stage of the tour of romandie in switzerland. the briton finished just ahead of richie porte and has a 19 second overall lead over the australian. britain's two time winner chris froome struggled, finishing more than a minute behind yates. andy murray's comeback from injury is still a work in progress. the world number one missed out on a place in the final of the barcelona open. although he says he's pleased with his week's work, murray was beaten in three sets by the fourth seed from austria, dominic thiem. joe lynskey watched the match for us. andy murray's road to recovery is paved in red. on the clay of catalonia he's trying to get back to the peak of his powers. on this, the most unpredictable surface, any time on court is time to adjust. dominic thiem is more of a clay specialist. but some shots are spectacular, whatever you're playing on.
6:54 pm
the austrian, racing to the first set, 6—2. the fourth seed was building momentum. against the world number one, thiem was seizing the spotlight. murray has reached the top through his battling qualities. no matter what form he is in, he finds a way to frustrate. after levelling at a set all, he seized the advantage in the third. but thiem was summoning the energy to strike back. in this match of topsy—turvy tennis, he would break murray's serv when it mattered. for the briton, the recovery continues. three weeks before the french open, and acclimatising on clay takes time. maria sharapova was beaten from the first time since returning from a 15 month drug ban. the russian was given a wildcard to the stuttgart open but faltered at the semi—final stag. at the semi—final stage. she took the first set against the world number 19 kristina mladenovic. but after two hours 38 minutes
6:55 pm
of play the french player came back to win in three sets. sharapova's received criticism from some of her fellow players this week — eugenie bounchard calling her a "cheater who shouldn't be allowed to play". mark selby is the first month richard wilson the world snooker championship final after he had a championship final after he had a championship battle with ding junhul championship battle with ding junhui. they resumed at 12-12, but mark selby looked to have won things. but ding junhui battled back brilliantly to win two in a row and get within one. a break from 72 brilliantly to win two in a row and get within one. a breakfrom 72 in the 33rd frame saw the two—time winner edge home. john higgins is just one frame away from a place in the final. his match against barry hawkins resumed this morning with higgins leading 10—6 and the four time champion won 6 out of the 8 session frames to put him in touching distance. but hawkins won the last,
6:56 pm
meaning they'll be back on the table at 7 this evening to finish the match. exeter moved level on points with leaders wasps in rugby union's premiership with a 36—12 win over northampton saints. they ran in six tries in front of their home fans at sandy park to erase the gap at the top after wasps' defeat last night. centre ian whitten's score helped to make it a record seventh straight bonus—point win in the premiership for the chiefs. nicky henderson has been crowned champion jumps trainer for a fourth time, after his horse altior won the celebration chase at sandown. it had been a race between henderson and paul nicholls to be named trainer of the year — but altior, thought by many to be the natural successor to sprinter sacre in the two mile division, secured it for henderson, who last won the honour four years ago. that's all from sportsday. a quick update on the premier
