The sporting weekend in pictures

England defeated Australia by 135 runs in the final Ashes Test to level the series 2-2 as Australia retained the urn at The Oval.

Suzann Pettersen justified her controversial wild card in stunning fashion as Europe regained the Solheim Cup by beating the United States 14.5-13.5 at Gleneagles.

Premier League champions Manchester City suffered their first defeat of the season at Norwich, while leaders Liverpool pulled five points clear at the top after victory over Newcastle.
