100 years. i feel i have than 75 years of them. laughter no, it'sjust a wonderful feeling. to be effectively now where they all we re to be effectively now where they all were 100 years ago isjust absolutely fantastic. there's no place like this at all. probably left in the world, really. it's a service of commemoration, but i think also celebration, of what the royal air force has done throughout its history, and what the royal air force still is today.

now, it is time for sports day. hello and welcome to sportsday i'm james pearce. the headlines this evening. 28 years of hurt come to an end for spurs. they finally win at stamford bridge. the champions are out of the european champions cup. leinster beat saracens in dublin. and england have taken control of a second test against new zealand in christchurch. hello and welcome to sportsday. chelsea's hopes of qualifying for the champions league have suffered a major blow at the hands of london rivals tottenham.
7:34 pm
the 3—1 victory was spurs‘ first at stamford bridge since february 1990. spurs are now eight points clear of fifth placed chelsea with only 7 games remaining. nick parrott watched the action. stamford bridge is a fortress that tottenham have failed to conquerfor 28 years. their hopes of changing that would have been higher had harry kane fit to start it. without him, that attacking threat was initially limited, whilst chelsea tested the keeper a couple of times before alvaro morata found a way through. the home side was seemingly in control. but in christian eriksen, but have a player who can turn a match in a moment. his eighth league strike a contender for goal of the season. that inspired others to have a go. while son was left frustrated, dele alli wasn't. he marked his 100th premier league
7:35 pm
game in style. chelsea's defence surredndered to alli just four minutes later. it's left both sets of fans in disbelief. some weren't around the last time this happened, it will be a long time before any of them forget. we started the game well. we weren't creating enough, i think. but, our back players and our midfielders controlled the game and moved the ball quickly, but we weren't giving enough at the top end of the pitch to threaten chelsea, and we were unfortunate to go a goal down, but it was great from christian to give us that belief in the second half. today was a good chance to try and reduce the gap. but there are seven games to go. we need to try and do our best and i think that after the whole
7:36 pm
season, you finish in the position that you deserve. chelsea, one london team trailing totte n ha m , chelsea, one london team trailing tottenham, arsenal and other london team, farfurther tottenham, arsenal and other london team, far further back than charsley. arsenal beat stoke city 3—0 with all three goals coming in the final fifteen minutes. there was a sparse crowd at the emirates, and for much of the match it was the stoke fans in good voice, with their team, until the closing stages, appearing to have a real chance of taking at least a point to help them in their relegation battle. holly hamilton watched the action. with seven changes from their last premier league outing, this easter you could accuse arsene wenger of putting all of his eggs in the europa league basket. but with arsenal's100% home record against second from bottom stokes, defeat today on april one would be nojoke. but, the home fans were not laughing in the first half, with the visitors creating more chances, whilst arsenal only made it easier for a spirited stoke side. ozone
7:37 pm
after the break, a controversial penalty was awarded, ozil went to ground. aubameyang broke the deadlock. minutes later, the striker doubled their lead with their sixth goalfor arsenal. a moment of madness for badou ndiaye. that was a gift of a penalty. alexandre lacazette made no mistake to give the gunners a 3—0 lead. that means back—to—back premier league and arsenal for the first time since november and move stoke closer to relegation. in the first half we were too sloppy and not sharp enough. not mentally switched on quickly enough, you know. the second half was much better, and we played with more dynamic, more pace. and against a good stoke side, i must say. i am surprised only see the quality of what they shown today
7:38 pm
—— surprised when you see the quality. that they are down there. we'd slowly took control and maybe difference. i thought we were excellent throughout the game. i thought we looked really, really good. good chances to score ourselves. hitting the post from the corner. not long after that that arsenal got the penalty, but i saw craig after the game and i asked him what the reason why he gave it, and i respect the referee, what decision he made, but in those big moments, you've got to get their might. —— got to get them right. obviously, he has not got the benefit of a tv monitor, and we have. in the scottish premiership, hearts have all but secured a top six finish after a 1—1 draw against struggling dundee at dens park. hearts went ahead with less than two minutes played, when marcus godinho set up ross callachan. commentator: did so well! the home side though fought back and equalised when roarie deacon's cross
7:39 pm
was converted by sofien moussa, dundee are still third from bottom four points above the relegation zone. chelsea ladies have moved three points clear at the top of the women's super league after a 1—1 draw at arsenal. unbeaten chelsea, who secured a champions league semi final spot last week, were gifted the opener, scored by fran kirby. arsenal equalised at the end of the first half when beth mead ran from the halfway line and didn't need any help. arsenal remain fourth. the defending champions saracens have been knocked out of the european champions cup at the quarter final stage. there was only one point between the teams at half time, but they ended up well beaten by leinster in dublin. 30—19 was the final score and our reporter chrisjones was there. this was a test match like occasion, played at epic intensity, and just like ireland at twickenham to black lea ks wee ks like ireland at twickenham to black leaks weeks ago, leinster were too smart, too clinical and too physical. after a second half bits they marched on into the semifinals of the champions cup. here is the
7:40 pm
story of the game. the path to club rugby's greatest prize is clearer. saracens are the last english side left and those in the irish has been a problem of theirs. ireland's six nations win had leinster at its core. they knew that they had to quash the saracens early. garry ringrose‘s try was within four minutes. the visitors they can touch with the brits, but their title defence fell away in the second half. they were outfoxed by dublin's dexterity, and finished off by dan. te na nts dexterity, and finished off by dan. tenants later, quick thinking but lei nster tenants later, quick thinking but leinster in charge. james lowe was pulling backwards, and finding points. saracens did manage to pull one back, but the challenge came too late. powering's school could not stop the leinster left. a good feeling flutters through this city when it comes to this sport, a celtic clash with the scarlet awaits
7:41 pm
in the last four. saracens dominance of europe is over. it is leinster who will face scarlet back here in the aviva stadium. 0n who will face scarlet back here in the aviva stadium. on this evidence, who is stopping them. joining them in the last four are french side racing 92 after they beat clermont auvergne 28—17 at the stade marcel michelin. this try from marc andreu was the decisive score with less than 20 minutes to play. racing will play munster in the semi finals. england's cricketers are on top heading into day 4 of the 2nd and final test against new zealand in christchurch. james anderson and stuart broad got all new zealand's 10 wickets between them. they finished off the finished off the job with the final four wickets at the start of the day to give the visitors a 29 run first innings lead. opening batsman alastair cook fell cheaply again but the rest of england's top order steadied the ship and england lead by 231 runs. england must win the match to level the series. meanwhile south africa are closing in on a series win against australia in johannesburg.
7:42 pm
australia were bowled out for 221 in theirfirst innings with new captain tim paine last man out for 62. what a catch by dean elgar!! south africa decided against enforcing the follow on, and by the close had extended their lead to a01 with seven second innings wickets still in hand. australia must win this fourth and final test to level the series. anthonyjoshua will be reflecting on a job well done last night, adding the wbo world heavyweight belt to his own two titles, by beating joseph parker on points at the principality stadium, but the talk has already moved on from that fight. to what happens next. joshua's team has told the bbc they are ready to start negotiations as early as this week for the next step, a world heavyweight title unification fight against deontay wilder to make joshua the first man to hold all four major heavyweight titles. david ornstein reports. he's one of the biggest
7:43 pm
stars of british sport, but for that star to continue rising, anthonyjoshua must keep winning, and with each opponent comes danger. joshua going the distance to the first time, but doing the enough to challenge on points. he now has all but one of the heavyweight belt, and no one has helped them all at the same time, that is the aim. no one has helped them all at the same time, that is the aimlj no one has helped them all at the same time, that is the aim. i think 2080 was or was it time to capture all the bad. we are one away, now. i think the sky's the limit for what we can try and achieve. it has been a remarkable rise forjoshua, from olympic gold and london 2012, two heavyweight champion in six years. seemingly plenty more to come. you have seen the good, the bad comedy
7:44 pm
ugly. and long have seen the good, the bad comedy ay have seen the good, the bad comedy ugly. and long may it continue. i am not done. i think i have got a knot of years left in me. without taking too much punishment, in fact i cut, i think be around for a long time. he has sold out three stadium fight in11 he has sold out three stadium fight in 11 months. it to attendance of the radicals of a million people, indicating his growing appeal. the one remaining challenge is to secure that final belt, and write his name into history. so the man standing between betweenjoshua and holding all four belts is american deontay wilder. get ready for weeks of will they, won't they speculation. wilder says he wants to make the fight happen butjoshua's promoter doesn't think wilder really does. let's make this fight happen. we wa nt let's make this fight happen. we want the fight, let's make it happen. it's easy, let's make it happen. it's easy, let's make it happen. if they stepped up and
7:45 pm
acting were serious about the fight, and series about the deal that would be more than fair to opt for them, it could happen, but with them, they are so it could happen, but with them, they are so and unpredictable.
