we should have had that cutting edge and we should have done better, of course. and it's a disappointing goal to concede. it's happened too many times. we're in on the attack, or this time it's a corner, and we have well enough organisation behind it, wejust don't deal in a the situation. if we can rely on that feeling, we've got to do it. we can't say, "well, we deserve more points," because when you don't score more goals, you don't. finished goalless as brighton... the best chance of the game fell lewis, don't, but he's guide his efforts six yards away. the draw sees brighton move up to fifth place whilst the gunners moved down tonight. wolves, meanwhile, got theirfirst home win of the season with a 2—1victory over newcastle united at molineux. two goals from hwang hee chan coming either side of a jeff hendrick

includes france while pina. but then defeat at leicester in the premiership in the cruellest way possible. all the pre—match takeover talk was put on hold as two of the league's biggest hitters prepared for battle. even the pouring rain didn't deter a packed crowd at welford road, for this early—season blockbuster. after a cagey opening, it was the ever—reliable boot of owen farrell which gave saracens a nine—point lead. it was turning into a kicking battle, with george ford responding as he reduced the deficit at the break. and, withjust over ten minutes remaining, the game finally sprung into life. leicester thought they had the first try of the match... ..but replay showed jack van poortvliet was off—side in the build—up.

the all blacks�* lead. with the siren already gone, the springboks snatched victory with this last—ditch penalty from eltonjantjies, and, with the win, they move top of the world rankings. but, despite defeat and losing their number—one status, the all blacks still lifted the silverware, seven points clear of their nearest rivals. lizzie diagnan has become the first female winner of the legendary paris roubaix cycle race. 125 years after the classic one—day race was first held, one of britain's finest cyclists has written her name into the sport's history books once again. drew savage reports. mud, sweat, and gears — all the ingredients necessary for a monumental ride over the treacherous roads of northern france. by the time the race had reached the famous cobbles, lizzie diagnan was more than two minutes ahead of the peleton, using all her substantial bike—handling skills to stay there. the advantage of being at the front is you can stay out of trouble. marianna voss took up the chase as the competition fell victim to the conditions.
7:53 pm
crashes and punctures are part of every paris roubaix, and lizzie diagnan avoided both. vos, the three—times world champion who has so often been diagnan�*s nemesis, cut her lead in half. but that's as close as she got. some classic yorkshire grit kept the dutch woman at bay. she reached the finish alone. she gets her moment! a moment women's cycling had waited 125 years for. they were the winner in a classic race. today is a part of history. and i'm proud to be part of a team that also makes history, you know, and we're so grateful to everyone behind—the—scenes, all the viewers watching, because every fan watching this is also making history. it's proving that there's appetite for women's cycling, and that the athletes here can do one of the hardest races in the world. and i'm so proud that i can say i'm the first ever winner. one of britain's greatest cyclists has just written another chapter in a sport's history. drew savage, bbc news.
7:54 pm
what a day for lizzie with that sensational win on those brutal cobblestones. earlier, i spoke to hayley simmonds, a former team—mate of diagnan�*s who herself is a former commonwealth games bronze medallist, aboutjust how big an achievement this is. it was a brilliant performance by lizzie. it's actually quite rare that we see her grimacing like that, but you can see just how much she wanted that victory. and yeah, it was always going to be a pretty iconic win for whoever took the victory today. and lizzie wanted it, and she gave absolutely everything to make sure she was the first person to enter the velodrome, and then cross the line. that race is very renowned for the terrain and conditions, and today's race was particularly treacherous, wasn't it? it's a race like no other. we've seen varied conditions over the years in the men's race, and i think in a way it was kind of fitting and made it more special that the first—ever women's addition was held in actually pretty bad conditions. and in a way it was kind of fitting
7:55 pm
and made it more special i think it will have drawn more spectators in to watch the race today, which is quite important from a women's cycling perspective. so although if i was riding it, i would have been dreading today's conditions — but as a spectator sitting on my sofa watching it, it was amazing. it was gold to watch, wasn't it? in terms of being the first—ever british winner in the men's and women's event, how significant do you think that is? so we've actually had some junior and under—23 british winners before, but in the elite race, yeah, lizzie is the first british winner. i think she's actually very deserving of the honour. hopefully it will do really good things for cycling in the uk, which has suffered quite a lot over the last few years with covid, our racing scene has taken quite a big hit. it's been difficult for british riders to get out to the continent to race, as well — so hopefully her victory
7:56 pm
today will help the recovery process, in terms of cycling in the uk. for the event itself, the prize money is an aspect, significantly less than the men's event — is that something that will improve over time, do you think? it's a big disappointment because actually, the disparity between the prize money for this event — i think it was around 13 times lowerfor the women, the overall prize pot, compared to the men's prize pot, which is obviously a huge disparity. with the prize money, although organisers can set their own levels of prize money, most organisers for races actually go by the uci regulations as to what the minimum levels can be. so it's really at the uci level that we need to be kind of looking at the prize money situation. but saying that, quite often what you see in women's racing is the teams that take home the prize money are those teams that
7:57 pm
actually already have more equality in terms of, they'll pay their riders a salary. so it's almost the money going to the teams that are already better—funded anyway. that's all from sportsday. thanks for watching. now it's time for the weather with nick miller. here's your live latest weather update from bbc, which has brought a lot of rain across the uk. we've had some sunshine, showers poised to move in as we move into tonight. where it's been very wet, the rain is now starting to wind down, still could be something in the far southeast of england overnight, though it remains blustery across the uk with showers mostly in the
