7:34 pm
matchwinners, nelly korda and jessica korda, winning their matches later on in the afternoon. and then it really came down to that dramatic finish, the final hole, with the final putt, and it was the wildcard suzann pettersen who held her nerve. she has been out of the sport essentially for the last two years, winning it in a most dramatic fashion for europe. a brilliant, remarkable day here at gleneagles, michael redford has the details for you. the roar of a champion. this was the moment team europe snatched the solheim cup back from the jaws of defeat. a moment that nobody saw coming, a show a fight and fea rlessness coming, a show a fight and fearlessness and four—and—a—half points for europe in the afternoon meant they had one hand on the trophy at gleneagles. europe now had to win theirfinal three trophy at gleneagles. europe now had to win their final three matches, a task surely too hard. maybe not.
7:35 pm
wins for anna nordqvist and bronte law meant it came down to the antique, where wildcard suzann pettersen stud, a golfer who had not played for 18 months because of the birth of herfirst played for 18 months because of the birth of her first child. she played for 18 months because of the birth of herfirst child. she had to win herfinal hole birth of herfirst child. she had to win her final hole against marina alex. she needed something special. she found it, a chip which made the unlikeliest of victories seem possible. the final day, the final match, the final shot. neither side could watch. from mum to match winner. this was suzann pettersen and team europe's day and the solheim cup is theirs. unbelievable, and for suzann pettersen to win the winning putt, we heard that cheer for bronte law, just cannot believe it, to be honest. the sunshine, great weather, the crowds have been amazing. obviously it was a great match, the americans played really well but it always comes down to one little putt and we got it this time.
7:36 pm
a wonderful win for scotland's catriona matthew. she had said that if she won here, it would be even bigger than when she won a major in her professional career. a word, though, on some news which has emerged about suzann pettersen, in the press conference following the win, she has announced that she is retiring from professional golf. you have to look at her legacy, notjust the win today, this was her ninth solheim cup appearance, she is a 38—year—old from norway, has been a vetera n 38—year—old from norway, has been a veteran of the game, a real big time player, two—time major winner, but she says that this is the way she wa nts to she says that this is the way she wants to go out of the sport of professional golf, so suddenly, all the questions emerge as to when she might potentially lead europe in a solheim cup. . quite a moment to bow out. sarah, thank you very much indeed. away from gleneagles,
7:37 pm
england have won the fifth and final ashes test at the oval to level the series at 2—2. england were dismissed in their second innings early on the fourth day. leaving australia chasing a target of 399. despite matthew wade's second century of the series, england completed a 135—run victory, with jack leach and stuart broad each taking four wickets. our sports correspondent joe wilson was watching. one red ball and 11 batsmen dressed in white, england's plan for sunday ran something like this. exactly like this. one down, harris. second to fall, warner. broad was bristling. now for some subtlety. jack leach lured marnus labuschagne forward and in a split second he was out, stumped, a high skilled dismissal, thanks. next. this is where all the greats have batted, and now steve smith would play his final innings of the summer. it could last minutes, hours, days?
7:38 pm
bowl it somewhere where smith can hit it, but put a fielder there. ben stokes grabbed the catch, and it felt like the match. just 23 for smith today but there was one nice surprise still waiting. he was applauded off the field. what could england's captain do? well, bowl. mitchell marsh fell tojoe root but matthew wade was defying england. hot afternoon, temperature rising at his contest withjofra archer was suddenly frozen in time. anyone blinking? no. on 117, wade fell, not to pace, but to guile, to root, bairstow‘s stumping. the final moment was also the captain's — root‘s catch for the match. the ashes remain in australia's hands but the series is level and england's long summer ends with another smile. joe wilson, bbc news, the oval.
7:39 pm
to the premier league, where watford fought back from two goals down at half—time to draw 2—2 at home to arsenal. quite some start for quique sanchez flores in his first match since being reappointed watford manager. pierre—emerick aubameyang scored twice in the first half to put the visitors in front, but they really unravelled after the break. tom cleverly taking advantage of some incredibly sloppy play by the gunners. that made it 2—1 before roberto pereyra rolled in a late penalty to help watford take only their second point of the season. in the second half, we're tried to ta ke in the second half, we're tried to take care, knowing that if we lost the face to the match, it could be really, go to for us. so, keep the confidence for the second half but to play a different game, because i prefer to play a different game, because i p refer to to play a different game, because i prefer to start in 00 second half. try to win the second half. that was the message for the players, and the players understand it well, they keep the concentration, we didn't
7:40 pm
speak the shape of the team, we were solid, quality, and i think we have a lot of attempts, i am really, really ha p py a lot of attempts, i am really, really happy with the performance of the players. they push for our mistakes and they were playing for out mistakes and they were playing for our mistakes, but also when we were trying to break the line, we can have some chances, attacking third. and also, we were doing long balls, and taking the second ball, they we re very and taking the second ball, they were very strong. and taking the second ball, they were very strong. and i think they woi'i were very strong. and i think they won the second half in the deduction. elsewhere today, bournemouth got their first home win of the league season with a 3—1 victory over everton. two goals from england striker callum wilson doing the damage, on what turned out to be a pretty comfortable afternoon for eddie howe's side. that victory lifts them up to eighth in the table. ryan fraser with the other goal after dominic calvert—lewin had equalised for everton. everyton now slip to 11th in the table. leeds united are back on top of the championship this evening
7:41 pm
after two late goals helped them beat barnsley 2—0. in the other yorkshire derby that took place today, sheffield wednesday are up to ninth after beating huddersfield by the same score. steven fletcher putting wednesday ahead. sam winnell sealed the victory — that's his first goal in over two years. a win then for new manager garry monk in his first game in charge — but defeat for huddersfield — means their new boss danny cowley doesn't get off to the start he would have hoped for. in the women's super league, everton continued their 100% start to the season with a 2—0 victory over bristol city. manchester city are also two wins from two. they saw off reading this afternoon, thanks to a couple of goals from pauline bremer. that was her first, an excellent finish. 2—0 it finished. newly promoted tottenham scored their first goal in the top flight, rachel furness with the only goal of the game to beat liverpool 1—0.

7:43 pm
it took some real courage from fury because had the fight been brought to an end because of the cut, he would have lost his unbeaten record. and sensing he might need a knockout, the british fighter rallied in the later stages. eventually, fury was awarded the victory by unanimous decision, but went straight to hospital to have microsurgery on two cuts. they were two of the worst cuts i've ever seen in a fight where the guy has gone, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine rounds, nine rounds, with these wounds, with these gaping gashes. quite extraordinary. tyson fury never panicked once. he did dab relentlessly and repeatedly at the eye, but he didn't panic, and that is just as well, because the young swede, otto wallin, as they say, we have loads
7:44 pm
of cliches in boxing, in fact the entire business is based around cliches, as they say, he came to fight, and he went down swinging. so, tyson had to dig deep and he had to go back to the corner, try and be calm during the 60—odd seconds as the cuts were healed momentarily for the next round. there was no panic, but it was really tough throughout. ronnie o'sullivan has won the shanghai masters for the third consecutive year. the rocket came through a thrilling final against shaun murphy, eventually winning by 11 frames to nine. he takes home the £200,000 winners cheque in what was his first tournament since his shock defeat at the world championships back in april. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more here on the bbc news channel throughout the evening. now it is time for click.
