The sporting weekend in pictures

Lewis Hamilton matched Michael Schumacher’s record of seven Formula One world titles after victory in the Turkish Grand Prix in Istanbul.

Records were also the order of the day on the lush lawns of Augusta as Dustin Johnson became the first player in history to win the Masters with a score of 20-under-par.

But there was a record of a more unwanted kind for Tiger Woods, whose septuple bogey 10 on the 12th hole of the final round marked the worst score of his career.

England crushed Georgia to get their Autumn Nations Cup campaign underway with a win, while Belgium beat England in the Nations League.

Wales beat the Republic of Ireland but there were defeats for Scotland and Northern Ireland in the same competition.

The ATP Tour Finals got underway for the final time at London’s O2 Arena before its transfer to Turin next year, with Rafael Nadal scoring a straight-sets win over Andrey Rublev.
