chequered flag at the singapore grand prix. his main rival, sebastian vettel, crashed on the first lap. red bull's daniel ricciardo was second with mercedes valterri bottas third. tom clarkson was in sepang for us. ifa if a week is a long time in politics, 48 hours is a lifetime in formula 1. a tight and twisty street circuit mixed with rain is the perfect cocktail for chaos in formula 1. this singapore sling left sebastian vettel, max verstappen, and to write them, all leading shaken, not stirred. —— kimi raikkonen. the sultan's press were
entered as he picked through the wreckage to take the lead. lewis hamilton has shown many cars before that he is a master of racing in the weight. so it was little surprise that he claimed his third win in a row and seventh of the season. with the six remaining races favouring mercedes, singapore could be a turning point in the destiny of the championship. yesterday, we struggled and had no idea what was happen today but we tried to stay focused and get ahead. obviously, it was very fortunate for us in the beginning. so yes, i could not be happy. we didn't have the friday pace that we showed in practice. —— happier. a little bit disappointed to miss out on a whim, but i still need to be grateful and happy within the podium. so lewis hamilton in the senate were delighted with rodina has gone on today. his own performance in the car, the gap in the world championship, and he knows
this to be the killer blow in the world championship. as for ferrari, they need to stop licking their wounds and returned to malaysia in two weeks' time. they need to win there if sebastian vettel is to have any chance of willing in lewis hamilton in the remaining six races. manchester united scored three goals in the final nine minutes of their match against everton for a 4—0 win that takes them level with manchester city at the top of the premier league table. in what was wayne rooney's return to old trafford having left at the end of last season after 14 years at the club it was antonio valencia who put the hosts ahead in the fourth minute with a wonderful strike before goals from henrik mikhataryan, romelu lukaku and a late anthony martial penalty sealed the three points for jose mourinho's side. everton is a very good team with lots of very good players, but they are ina lots of very good players, but they are in a difficult moment. and when things are in a difficult moment, it is important that we don't give them
confidence. so it is important to start strong and try to kill their mentality as soon as possible. we did that with an amazing goal, but we left the game. but the second half, the quality cannot. it was difficult for us, but with the second goal, obviously, we won. —— the quality came up. things are not going well for everton boss ronald koeman as they've now lost four successive matches without scoring and are in the bottom three. understandably the manager is not a happy man. iam not i am not just i am notjust at incidental ball. i've had a long period in football. we have four games until the next international break at home. we need to win. if you don't win, then it is better to stop. in the early match arsenal played out a goalless draw at chelsea, the closest either side came to scoring was when aaron ramsey hit the post for the gunners who owed a debt of gratitude to their goalkeeper petr cech who made some strong saves

to the nfl, where the denver broncos match against the dallas cowboys was suspended for a period of time during the first quarter due to inclement weather and threats of lightning strikes in colorado. at present, the broncos are well in control heading towards the end of the match while elsewhere the la chargers lost their first home match since relocating from san diego going down to the miami dolphins. seattle won a hard fought game at home to san francisco 12—9, while the new england patriots struck back from their opening week loss as tom brady led the way in a 36—20 win over the new orleans saints. that is about all we have time for. from the current tulsen tollett, and the superb sport to take team, goodbye. —— sport today. after a weekend of sunny spells, and some heavy showers around too, there is going to be a bit of a change in the weather as we head through this week. after that fairly cool and showery start, a bit of rain mid—week, particularly in the west. but things will be warming up towards the end of the week, and turning a little bit drier later on. so here is how things are looking at the moment. we've got an area of high pressure building in from the atlantic. low pressure sitting out
to the east at the moment. so still a rather cool, northerly breeze with those two areas of high and low pressure. that breeze in the east is going to be bringing some showers across parts of eastern england, and perhaps central parts seeing some showers through the day. but it is quite a chilly start to monday morning, with the mist and some fog patches. a little bit murkier as you wake up in the morning. this is 9:00am. temperatures starting to rise as the sun coming through the hole in the cloud clears the mist and fog away, too. an isolated shower or two around coastal parts of wales, but mostly dry for parts of northern england, northern ireland scotland, too. but that northerly breeze will feel quite chilly towards the north and the east, and will bring the chance of one or two showers through the day. many parts of the country having a pretty decent day, though. once the mist and fog clear away, the sunshine should break through quite nicely. there will be a few showers cropping up almost anywhere, but i think it will be mostly central and eastern parts of the country that you have a higher chance of catching a shower. whereas further west, particularly for northern ireland
and for western scotland, you are likely to stay dry through the day. temperatures in most places about 15 to 18 degrees. just a little bit cooler with that breeze around eastern scotland and north—east england. moving through monday evening, then, we could see an area of slightly more persistent rain moving south across scotland, northern england, down towards the south—east by the end of the night. clearing skies behind that, so another chilly night ahead, with temperatures around about eight to 11 in our towns and cities. but actually, in the countryside, it could be a little bit colder than that. low enough to see a touch of frost across scotland, northern england, northern ireland and wales, as well. after that, a chilly start to tuesday morning, and this ridge of high pressure building on. so tuesday is probably the best day of the week, in fact. lots of dry weather, the showers we have seen recently in the east should be easing away. so, with the light winds and the sunshine, a pleasant day to come on tuesday, with top temperatures still a little below average for the time of year, around about 15 to 18 degrees. but, when you are in the shelter and the sunshine, that will be a bit pleasant.
it will only be rainy in the far north—west late in the day. for wednesday and thursday, a bit of rain for some western parts of the country, but temperatures will be on the rise later in the week. bye now. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. i'm duncan golestani. our top stories... the un warns of a "horrible tragedy" for rohingya muslims — and says myanmar has one last chance to halt the offensive against them. we have a special report from the refugee camps. chances of a military operation in size myanmar reaches its natural end. as far as the military are concerned, these people area military are concerned, these people are a historical problem that has now been fixed. the governing party in pakistan celebrates after the wife of the ousted prime minister, nawaz sharif, wins a by—election in his political heartland. the uk terror threat level is reduced from critical to severe as a second man is arrested after a bomb attack on a london tube train.
